    My Holy Father exposes all hypocrisy. Ye mock the Son of man before saying, My heart has already shown me where I will be, in darkness gnashing of teeth not dwelling in light. I will never give up nor stop loving God and Yeshua my savior. (Nay. For ye cannot love GOD except ye repent and confess the Son.) It is written, The LORD preserves ALL them that love him: but ALL the wicked will he destroy.
