    Ernetns, Job 13:3 gives " reason with God." Sorry! I spoke too soon.
  • Lucinda Palestrant
    Ahoents Ernest, Can you give us scripture that tells us to "reason" with God? What I see in scripture is "believe" in and on Jesus Christ. But I would like to see scripture that gives what you say substance. thank you
