  4. Lesson from the cross: To all wanting a safe life free from danger in this world, stay away from Jesus”

    We have NO CLUE here. Reading not only of the massacre of innocent Pakistanis on Easter ( Christians were targeted ) and the persecution there of Christians, how the Christians in Iraq have virtually been wiped out over the last few years ( MUCH due to the stupidityof our own government’s policies in the Mideast ) and other stories of widespread persecution of Christians,overseas in the last few years I am amazed. What I once read in the book of Revelation as a young woman…..beheadings and such…….and attributed to Bible Times or the Dark Ages… becoming a reality in these times.
