2Co 5:18 And all things [are] of God. These have all come from God through the gospel. Who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ. Before we were at variance with God, and disobedient.

    CHRIST ALONE take us home

    Eternal truths: For we walk by faith, not by sight. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin

    I think that 2 Corinthians is telling us that we need to work for God all the time and to work as we are working for Him on our jobs and at home. And that we will be Judge for what we do and what we don't do.

    Daniel 5:16 And I have heard of thee, that thou canst make interpretations, and dissolve doubts: now if thou canst read the writing, and make known to me the interpretation thereof, thou shalt be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about thy neck, and shalt be the third ruler in the kingdom.

    I just want to say we all need our faith increse and i thank God for being God and to know we have him to look to from an evil wicked world things will end but his love will never and we have to belive that we didnt creat our self and really dont understand ourselves so we know to turn to our God our creator and thats enough

    Faith and Love is what we need. As well as belief of course. I'm disturbed by those who are so vigilant in their own interpretations I fear open minded change is what you proudly consider beneath you. I pray I am wrong forgive me if I mistake your passion and pride.
