We all are here on a temporary basis. How many people walk this earth not knowing what will happen after this life? How concerned are people with eternity? It should be considered. I also believe people would not take things so much for granted and consider that what we do here is going to effect what happens in eternity. It is important to me. God created man. He loves us. We became disobedient. If a child that is being disobedient or defiant needs corrected, a people not doing what the one maker commands needs also corrected. We should not get upset about that. He sent his only begotten son that we may have everlasting life. Is that not enough??? What is wrong with us today? He loves us. Yet of all religions and faiths I believe Christians are persecuted the most. I mean people come to America from all walks of life and countries and are free to practice what they have been taught. Why are Christians the most persecuted. You can tell where a person is spiritually by their fruits. Which faiths are producing the most fruits? Honestly. Which has the most truth to it> If one would open the Bible to Revelation. There are facts proven. Actually taking place right now. We all need the truth. This is what I have found to be true. I care deeply for my country and the world. Love and peace to you.

I feel as if anyone that is in a position of making decisions regarding our country and the well being of it's citizens should consult God first. If we did I am almost positive in fact very sure that our situations we are facing now would have less negative effect. First seek the kingdom of God and the rest shall be added unto you. Also a house divided cannot stand. Mark 3:25. As far as America we state in our pledge of allegiance one nation under God. Why do not all agree? One creator our father in heaven. Which book has not ever lost its value? And has been available to us for the past 2000 years and is still the most powerfull blessing and guide for us all today. Why do people always try to claim everything to themselves and forget to consult the very creator of their being? We did not just appear. We all need faith. ThankFully he sent his one and only begotten son so that we may have everlasting life. Jesus. I don't go to the grocery store without consulting him first. The responsibility of a position in office or one who would make decisions effecting the welfare of our country in my opinion should always consult with the almighty first. Blessings .
