The Lord

Is there a God? If not, what would that mean for us? If so, what does THAT mean for us? Doctrine (structured thinking) about the Lord is one of the main things we need to have, if we're to understand how to live our lives. Let's take a look at this fundamental subject.

The Most Important Teachings About the Lord

Maybe it's obvious, but... one of the key things for a true understanding of life, the universe, and everything (hat tip to Douglas Adams) is to think hard and learn as much as you can about the nature of God. Here's a list that will spur your thinking.
