    Ephesians teaches us how to love and to continue in love" and not to be a part taker of evilness. This book is powerful Jesus Christ and our Father has given us the way to live through his word. Every word that is written in the bible comes from GOD: through man. As he gave his only begotten son to come and lead us. That was GOD: working and speaking through his son. AMEN.

    Lu2627, what I think is that God is all powerful . Lillian thinks that we have to accept him. Scripture commands all to repent and believe, but none can in and of themselves.
