I even put up a page with a contemporary reference to romans 8:28.

But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!, you don't want to hear that!

June did.

But nobody seemed to want to hear that, either...

Your thread has not been wasted, nor has it fallen on deaf ears.

That's a good thing.


Take gentle care.

It's not a matter of luck or magic....Without Repentance and Faith in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ NO ONE will be saved..... We need to "get humble" before God ask him to help us lead a Christ-like life.....he will then instill the Holy Spirit in us to guide us and sanctify us...... if we are willing to cooperate with the Holy Spirit we will not be living a failed life.....those who endure ( YES at times it's a struggle) to the end will be saved.
