    This is what you do not understand. God does not put road blocks in our way. We do. God does not laugh at the suffering we bring on our-self . God does offer us comfort and an escape. Victory in the end through grace.

    Annie, I have carried a lot of shame with me for the early days of my life. Even confessed, I know that Satan loves to throw even old sins in our face, and I fall for it every time, like a low and away curve ball.

    The Bible says that "Jesus did it all, lest others brag." I understand this.

    But I told my Guardian Angel, Harold, that when he comes to get me, I would consider it a privilege to walk Purgatory for a few thousand years, facing my sins and the ones I've forgotten.

    One of the Apostles cried so much after Christ's execution that he had creases in his face from his tears. I want to face Christ that way, I do not consider His death a simplistic mark in history, but my ransom for life in Eternity.

    "His" sacrifice was enough, that's why it is the most awesome gift to Man who has rejected him.
    I will choose to enjoy the journey that God has prepared for me. Hidden Content

    Cant quite get a grasp on the topic. If seems to be the old dielemma of why do bad things happen to good people? If thats it...the Bible tells us cause none of us are good. So kindly quit worrying about. Anybody who thinks they are good is a confused Methodist...Episcoplaian or something. Look in the Mirror...aka The Law. Your imperfections will be revealed. Thats why we have it.

    I am fully Lutheran and believe four-square in that whole predestination thing that Martin Luther preached. If you can identify and follow the "instructions" God wrote upon your soul before you were born, you will be just fine. If you cannot identify those instructions or choose not to follow them because you have a better way... Well, life may a bit difficult (and death moreso). Too bad, so sad.

    Yeah, no.

    There was a time when attempting an appendectomy was heresy.

    I think that's right. I think God's going to raise up great saints in those times ahead. Because we'll need 'em!

    Habakkuk 3:
    2.
    O Lord, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O Lord, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.

    https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Habakkuk%203&version=ESV;KJV



    The wrath will come, and the mercy will come, and all of us will choose which one to receive, wrath or mercy. And we won't have anyone else to blame, if it is wrath that we receive.
    America is in for a trainload of Hell, but the individual can choose to be good, and to be with God. It is so easy to see that even I figured it out, and I threw in with God. I have never regretted it.
