    Mindy; Romans 11:36 "For of him, through him and to him are all things, to whom be glory for ever." This is not directed at you specifically but most people do not see the magnitude of; "ALL THINGS."

    This verse proves to me that God created all things for Jesus Christ, by Jesus Christ, and through His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

    The Lord is to be sought. The Bible clearly teaches that we can know truth and the Truth (Christ) through reading the Scriptures. Thus, preachers are not lying when they say you can know the Lord. However the bible makes it clear in Deuteronomy 13 what a false prophet is. Hope this helps
