  1. So who is David F Wells? No kidding.

    t

  2. David F. Wells is my homeboy. :)

  3. David F. Wells has pierced asunder the glaze of Liberalism that covers most of the “professing church” in the 20th and 21st centuries. He refers to it as “modernity” but the seeds were planted 75-100 years ago. I pray that his words will be taken seriously in this world of false religion.
