    This is vintage Jesus. This chapter is laden with steps to be a TRUE Christian straight from the mouth of The Master Himself. The central message is love for God and love for others.

    LUKE 6:29 AND UNTO HIM THAT SMITETH THEE ON THE ONE CHEEK OFFER ALSO THE OTHER AND HIM THAT TAKETH AWAY THY CLOKE FORBID NOT TO TAKE THY COAT ALSO 2 THESSALONIANS 2:8 AND THEN SHALL THAT WICKED BE REVEALED WHOM THE LORD SHALL CONSUME WITH THE SPIRIT OF HIS MOUTH AND SHALL DESTROY WITH THE BRIGHTNESS OF HIS COMING
  • Zeingoff
    How beautiful are the words of God thru Jesus, who provides us with wisdom and truths which allow us to be in his mercy and blessings. Basically do unto others, even those you hate, which seems impossible. When the camel passes thru the eye of the needle, narrow is the way thru the gate. With God all things are possible. We are known by our fruits, or our acts. There is no variables with God
