    INTO THE BREACH – BISHOP THOMAS J. OLMSTEAD’S APOSTOLIC EXHORTATION TO MEN

     

    “AND I SOUGHT FOR A MAN AMONG THEM WHO SHOULD BUILD UP THE WALL AND STAND IN THE BREACH BEFORE ME FOR THE LAND…”
    EZEKIEL 22:30

This battle is often hidden, but the battle is real. It is primarily spiritual, but it is progressively killing the remaining Christian ethos in our society and culture, and even in our own homes.
