‘The Chosen’ dares to imagine stories about Jesus and the disciples that aren’t in the Gospels. It’s a revelation.

Jonathan Roumie’s Jesus has fearsome power to open the Scriptures to us and the women and men who follow him are people in whom we can find traces of ourselves. It helps me love the Lord like I never have before.

A while we were told that at a Jewish museum they were doing a tribute to Pope John Paul II. It was great. I looked around more and saw a painting. It was of people going into a small building and coming out ready to be killed. It gave me a idea. Make one like it for Right to Life. A pregnant woman going in and coming out not, with a trash can next to her. How you like?
THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD… SO WHY ARE THERE SO MANY RELIGIONS? Why do you feel your religion is the right one, because your mother says so? There is no harm in exploring, that is the only way to find out if the grass is greener on the other side. Finally, a book has been written that has studied all religions including atheism views and have come up with a perfect layout for you to achieve the Kingdom of Heaven. God did not create any religion, that is why thy body is thy temple. Learn that no matter whatever religion you belong to or no religion at all, what you need to guide you through life to the Pearly Gates. Don’t be afraid, only ye who seek shall find. For those who are still hesitant and afraid, remember if you really believe in God, you can walk through the Valley of Death and fear no evil. You will never know if what you are doing is right unless you read this book. Either you will say I am on the right track to heaven, or you may need to change some and say, I once was blind but now I see. Only after reading it can you decide.

Hello Everyone, we are going through some tough times with this Coronavirus. Some of our loved ones have been the sacrificial lamb. But our faith will not be broken, for we have been through tribulations before, and together we will get through this terrible crisis as well. Amen BENDING ON MY KNEES When I am feeling down, and I have not a single friend around. When I search for a solution but there is not one to be found. When I find myself alone without anyone to comfort me? This is the time when I find myself bending on my knees. When I feel totally hopeless and don’t want to live anymore. When I look at others who have everything while I remain poor. When I feel like my final hope is gone. When I ask myself, to deserve this, what did I do wrong? Why have I been chosen to endure so much pain? When I feel like I am going totally insane. Whenever something goes wrong, I am the scapegoat that they blame. I feel just so worthless and so totally ashamed. When I feel that there isn’t a soul in the world who cares for me. That is when I find myself bending on my knees. I don’t know where the money will come from to pay the rent. Yet I know something will get here if only Heaven sent. Hello Everyone, we are going through some tough times with this Coronavirus. Some of our loved ones have been the sacrificial lamb. But our faith will not be broken, for we have been through tribulations before, and together we will get through this terrible crisis as well. Amen But you can always find the way if you have the will. Remember in order for one to get up they must first be down. If God can keep the world spinning, I know God can turn my life around. All that God asked of me is to hold on and not to give up. Like Job weather out those storms that are rough. Cause we know sooner or later there will be calm seas. Until then I am going to keep bending on my knees. (Check out the book below for some good Godly poetry)
