    Only the blood of Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior saves. Yet, one MUST be willing to submit, repent, confess there sins to GOD, and LOVE GOD with a true HEART to forgive.

    The doctrine of Christianity is hinged on a tripod of love, hope and faith. It is essential that we build our lives on these three legs for the peace of mind, the treasures of the earth and the world to come. It would appear that earthly greed and corruption of most of our political leaders today who aren't following this doctrine, have created the strife and uncertainties in our world today.
