Beating Demons; Helping Homosexuals; Destroying Sex Trade; Sweden’s Stupidity; Lotteries; and much more

Weekend Links

winterscapes - 1Weekend Links going up a little late this weekend. Had to make two trips to the doctor (nothing serious) but time consuming.  My hope is that all these links will help you love Jesus and your neighbor better. As always, inclusion is not necessarily an endorsement of everything within the link.
