I believe in the one true God who is the creator of all and who has created all of us for his purpose. I believe I am a sinner, saved by Grace through Faith in the sacrificial death of the one sinless man named Jesus Christ, born of a virgin for that purpose. I believe the Holy Bible to be the inerrant word of God, dictated by God-inspired and inscribed by men as the one true will for mankind. I believe what God says in scripture to be the life-manual for us all. I do not believe God made a mistake in the creation of anyone. I cannot explain how it might appear that mistakes were made, but I firmly believe, regardless of what problems are present in anyone, that is reason to make that life a beacon of Love of God. Should I be wrong and should that opinion be something I must answer for, I will stand on it until God reveals a difference. If you research the Book of Job in the Old Testament, you get a drift of what I believe. For true believers, regardless of what befalls us in this life, it is reason to be thankful and spend time praising God rather than living in the negative. We face a crossroad for America today. There are those who would have us believe that America is ugly and racist. They go so far as to preach that our Constitution is in need of change. They aren't doing all this out of love for our nation, but for the simple reason to defeat Trump/Pence and go socialist. They have succeeded in sending us down a road of destruction with abominable laws. The ballot box is our only hope. We must open our eyes to the truth! Prayer for those placed in positions authority should replace maliciousness and hatred. We are a few weeks away from what I believe to be the most critical election in our history. Evil abounds and God is not happy. Parents, schools and churches have failed to do as God wills. Masses are struggling with the burden of SIN and willful lies. The minds of our young men and women are clouded with bad teaching in school, at home and at the house of worship. Only God's People can save us and it's time for constant prayers on humility and repentance. We are at a crossroad and continuing to the left is not Godly!
And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.
