He Ascended into Heaven
The thief on the cross next to Jesus was a criminal in life, the lowest of the low. But he knew his Savior when he met him that day at the place of the Skull outside Jerusalem.

"There is nothing more basic than God. To put it more confusingly, there is nothing more basic than God’s god-ness that can explain Him or account for Him." (James Dolezal) For most of us, the doctrine of divine simplicity seems anything but simple! Thankfully, the writers at Place for Truth have clearly and succinctly explained what simplicity means, and why it remains a vital doctrine for the Church today. May our God be praised, "the One than whom nothing higher can be thought."
