This old world is full of broken people and darkness with problems you could stack high in warehouses. the problems seem overwhelming but there really is only one overriding problem . SIN. think about it. every difficulty and quandry can be traced back to some sort of sin in one if not all parties involved. There is, according to the bible, only one remedy for sin and that is repentance and the perfect forgiveness and grace offered through Jesus's death and resurrection. There is a consequence for sin and the wages of it are death and misery . Jesus came to bring LIFE and more abundantly. I too was blind but now I see. You may think these Ideas are foolish and a sign of weakness. remember these words of mine someday .I truely believe you will. people need the lord . it is that simple.All other help is shifting sand
