If purgatory were real – it is not! If it were terrible, make that T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E. If it lasts a million years or a billion and then one could enjoy heaven, some would be foolish enough to try it. No. God has to make the rejection of His Son a crime punishable with an eternal punishment or man could “have their cake and eat it too.” With parents, the tougher the punishment, the less likely the brat is to disobey, if, repeat, IF the parent is a man of his word. Let me, with a solemnity, tell you, God IS A BEING OF HIS WORD! Eternal damnation waits every soul who rejects the salvation offered (freely) through Jesus Christ. Some parents have “allowed” Johnny to win. Not God; God will win the contest.

Fox grass bending under gentle, windy strokes,

Snow bank patches left on eastern side of slopes,

Early grass growing on the valley wall beyond,

Horizontal streaks set ablaze by the sun,

Unleafed apple trees file up the hill abreast.

A honey bee in strip’d array is out searching for the rest

A variegated heaven is peeking past the tail’s of mares,

As silhouetted birds claimed the world as theirs.

The most powerful thing you can do

is pray – yet it needs no electric or gasoline “power.” Prayer can be experienced by the educated and the uneducated. It can be done alone, or in a group. And Prayer is always best when it is from the heart.

Ante-Nicene Quote

“…They did not speak to the Gentiles in compliance with their notions but told them with boldness,

that their gods were no gods, but the idols of demons.”
