But it's very general, in fact the same word is used in 1 Sam 11:11 to describe "the heat of the day" (obviously not one, single…See More

"Good answer. I need to get back into writing it. Keep making the mistake of reading it and editing it instead of adding to it. Need to just jump to the end and keep going. "

"It doesn't necessarily have to present the Gospel, but if it engages people in a dialogue of good vs. evil, of right and wrong, and of Christ ultimately winning, then it opens a way to present the Gospel."
