    1Peter3:1-6; I lo-o-ove these vs. Because - this is the situation I am in. Because I obey the Lord (His Word) He has made a way for me for almost 3 yrs. to serve Him. Before, for 5 yrs., God didn't make a way because I wasn't obeying Him, through His Word. If you are trying, wanting to live for Him - just obey His Word: Jn.14:15. To live for Jesus is so easy, even under persecution.

    ...wives, be in subjection to your own husbands...husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge... It's not hard to find where in history things really started rushing out of course; and as Christians, we aren't to gauge our values by the world's. It is a real mark of a sincere conversion, that lays aside as worthless and evil, what the world in defiance toward God promotes as morally superior!

    Irene: Did The Lord Say:But seek ye first The Kingdom of God and His Righteous; and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33,or no seeking need. Just love! Changing scripture! Where does that come from? (You know)Do not add or take away? Both has been done. And you say it's "ok"? We who are Washed by The Blood,Preach The Word as Written as much as possible.

    Irene: When someone misquotes Scripture, it helps no One. The Lord said: But seek ye first The Kingdom of God,and His Righteous;and all these things will be added unto you./her post is "Poison in The Soup" Satan loves the misuse of scripture. The Lame, The Sick,The Unknowing will take the wrong path by such quotes./ Only by The Blood of The Lamb is there Salvation:Revelation1:5 / Mark 1:8 Baptized
