    What more can we add to the comment of Lakeaffex's... If the world could only realize that real life will be lived after we've learned our lessons in this life, but most of the time we think that what we see will last and we gather things that will not last, the things that we not see will enrich our lives and most of all the Love of our Redeemer Jesus Christ.... that will last forever, Thank God for that!
  • Lakeaffex for verse 4
    So many people these days, use their philosophies to refute Christians and the Bible, saying there is no God. But they have deceived themselves. They do believe in god, not the God of the Bible, but the god of themselves. They have put themselves on the throne of their hearts, deciding what is right and wrong, what is truth and what is error. Of course, this god changes attributes from person to person because what may be right to one is not necessarily right for another, shifting sand in practice. But, their god s all share a common denominator, they arise from the original exalter of himself, Satan. I will says the god of this world. As Christians we should humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, that we should be exalted in due time. Put Christ on the throne of your heart, bow the knee, He is the true God and the firm foundation to build your life upon. He is the truth the life and the way!
