I may be old, poor, unhealthy and in constant need of forgiveness, but thank God, I am not where many are who find no need for spiritual enlightenment, belief in themselves, or have been places that I have been in my past.

It’s lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in God all my life and have known the other guy way too well (Satan) for I have done more sinning than going to church. Ignorance is the root and stem of all evil. The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it!

Churches close and so do hearts, and everyone turns the TV channel when there is a disaster, or mass murder because they don’t want to hear bad things. The world grows more and more unhealthy and so does humanity.

People like to say that the conflict is between good and evil. The real conflict is between truth, lies, and making choices. What lures people to evil and to assume God is just another myth? Those who search for answers and understanding about these days/times don’t need to watch TV. They only need to go to a book thousands of years old and find all that is happening now was pre-told in the Bible.
