Please explain to me how I am wrong. Please tell me how all of the things you support is right. Please explain to me all the things because you voice will have to say the words out loud.

You might see how you were steered the wrong way? You might feel frustrated too and push back.

Aren’t you tired of not having fun parties and celebrating super awesome things? Aren’t you tired of being lied to?
Numbers 32:23 – Be sure your sin will find you out.

However, sin is always forgiven.

My Salvation is built on the greatest act of love ever known.
