I think that this post is the most comprehensive,well thought out and truthful post ever to grace the pages of this forum. It is sad that the word of GOD cannot be the FIRST and LAST words on this life destroying issue. Mankind is bound and determined to do it his way without GOD in the picture.
Now is not the time,but the time is much nearer than most people think. See (MAT 24:21 & 22) :21 For there will be great tribulation ,Such as has not been since thebegining of the world until this time,no,nor ever shall ever be.
:22 And unless days were shortened,no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened. Mankind is going to become so evil and self distructive,that unless GOD did not intervene,he would destroy the whole earth and all life on it,as stated in :22 above.
You are to be commended for your work and concern for others.
Sincerely I C L
