People have ignored the value of the perfect and holy blood of Jesus the Christ and resorted to their own ways- ways that approve their desires to consulting and praying to the devils, the dead and and idols. But God the creator remains true and His sacrifice is live forever even the blood of JESUS CHRIST that no one should dishonor or ignore but desire to be cleansed with.
