John 3:16

Amen Brother have come across John 3:16 scrawled on the wall in the worst of places seems to be the closer to Hell you travel the more you will find John 3:16 on the wall like a ray of Sunshine it has carried many a junkie through hell I know it has saved my limited sanity more than once

I'm only 26.
I'm also not Roman Catholic.

I give to charities very often and have sponsored children through world vision. I've raised hundreds of Dollars for that organization and others that impact children and families everywhere. The Tithe that I give at church allows the church to help out the community in many ways. Not to mentio the multiple missionaries that our specific church sponsors. Mostly people helping people in third world countries.

All those things are things that you'll find most Christians doing that go to church. Catholics, Methodists, Baptists, ETC. That's what WE'VE done. What have you done?

Not much spent years tying to do the right things for the wrong reasons n Karma handed me my ass in a big way more than once I'm no stranger to shame yet my ego still seems to get the best of my posed integrity every time

Still can't seem to get it right um humbleness is a lot harder to accomplish than one would think, uphill battle everyday to do something for the right reason not what satisfies my ego

That's what I was trying to get at.

Humbled point made

I understand you were just ranting but we're just trying to have a conversation. Not yelling, not Debating, just talking. It's what we do.

I am truly sorry if anyone was offended by my rant it was not meant to be a personal attack but I went there anyways removing all doubt is snafu an idiot

Thank you for the reality check my ego could stand to be knocked down more often than not

Wasn't offended, just wanted to talk about why you thought that. Still interested to find out.

I don't understand why we as a society let these atrocities continue Jesus kicked the snakes out of his shrine, should we not follow his example?
