    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

    Piggy back to the comment by LL regarding, Christians are protected, we must remember, scriptures also states in KJV the book of Matthew 5 verse 45, That ye may be children of your Father which is in heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and the good and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust.
