    To disciple on 2/20 - It's still troubling you - the eye of the needle. It was just a comment on my part; has nothing to do with salvation (Acts 2:37-38). Please, let the Lord put your mind at ease about - and go on with Him from faith to faith; God Bless you, disciple.

    Maya Angelou quote - "Somehow we have come to the erroneous belief that we are all but flesh, blood and bones, and that's all. So we direct our values to material things." Matt. 19:22; Lk.18:23.
