    To Sean - You may have gotten help on your problem by now with associating with 'unbelievers' ..... ? I send you these in case you've never seen them 1 Cor. 6:12-15.

    To Michael, 5 days ago - I think maybe Peter was a bigger failure than you - before the day of Pentecost in Acts ch. 2 when he gave the1st message of Jesus' new church - failure when he DENIED Jesus 3 times; you haven't denied Him. Just go to Acts ch. 2 - read vs.37-38.
  • Zagga Fenton
    My commend is on verse '8', there's a hurt and angry feeling I have on thinking these individuals, fashion themselves in the opposition of God, delight themselves in displeasing God. Their glory is to rob you and I from receiving God's favors. They gave up their fear of God, and now trying to rob us of our fear of God. They choses to be a parasites rather than being a servants and sons of God.
