God is just yet merciful. Those crucified to the cross shine bright as an example in every generation. Bow humbly and thank the Lord for his justice. It’s when the CROSS becomes a delight...that’s when you know when you’re on the right path.

I am not Catholic- but will defend any brother or sister in Christ when what they say so clearly reflects the whole counsel of God Almighty.A refreshing reminder that we have been bought with a price.Too often we forget our God is a jealous God.
