...guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”
- 1 Timothy 6:20

Though this is obviously not an exhaustive list, the following resources have been reviewed by Pastor John and are listed here to help guide you as you seek supplementary resources to your own reading and study of God's Word.
