    If a person strives for his life in the world, he will find that the world does not offer "the life", and will lose it. But if he gives up searching the world for his life for the sake of Jesus Christ, he will find 'the life". Because The Life is in Jesus Christ.

    I don't care what it takes I will follow and trust in God for the rest of my life on this earth even if people try to kill me I will still stand strong cause he has been too good to me to just turn my back on him

    Freely have ye received, Freely give. Matthew 10:8
  • A Christian
    To:A Disciple, I agree with Emanuel Fernandes. There is nothing wrong with watching sports as long as it does not keep you from God. If you are watching when you should be at church, THAT'S WHEN YOU SHOULD FEEL ASHAMED. By the way "A DISCIPLE" are you a Catholic or what?
