Episode Info: Our Reasons to Believe Scripture verse for today is Colossians 4:5-6. It reads, "Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.

If I believe I am the archangel Gabriel, I am probably well over it. And if I believe I am God? ... Would you send your children to Sunday school to be taught by a man who thought he was God?
