Was “St. Patrick” Really a Baptist?

I wanted to post a brief follow-up to my previous article posted on Monday about St. Patrick, the great missionary.  There were some references to Roman beliefs and practices in the article, which I was aware of prior to posting the article.  That being said, I would invite you to read the following article  to get [Continue Reading...]

Patrick: The Great Missionary

Patrick: The Great Missionary

Well, as goes the saying, Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! In light of the debauchery that surrounds this day, I thought I would take a moment to post some thoughts about the man and great missionary who has become known as St. Patrick.  Patrick was actually not Irish, but was from England proper and went as [Continue Reading...]
