“Destiny Is All!”
Is any NT watching or have watched the first three seasons of The Last Kingdom? I am watching the third season on Netflix. This is a potent saga cinematic picture epic tapping themes deeper than those of Game of Thrones. A great period peace. I am drawn in by the acting and varying...

Let me be perfectly clear. I have no good use for the American Center for Law and Justice, its founder Jay Sekulow, and his son Jordan Sekulow. Hey! Are you aware Jay Sekulow is currently President Trump's personal lawyer. How about that! I have been listening to "the Center" on my car...

“And there is a river flowing from the throne of heaven, and the waters make the city glad."”

“Exodus 21:16 “He who kidnaps a man, whether he sells him or he is found in his possession, shall surely be put to death." ”
[This topic was so interesting and me so busy that I could not reply to all the comments on the topic before the other article was moderater closed.] Disclaimer: This article is an answer from a writer to a question. I just find it a conversation starter with the whole kidnapping verse. Let's...

“Sin translates the Hebrew word "KHATA" and the Greek word "HAMARTIA." The most basic meaning of SIN is not religious as all!"”
