    Atheists doing the atheist things as always. People need Christianity to be unconditionally fair and good and humane. Jesus is the Saviour of the world. Chinese Christians will never give up. It is God’s mercy that anyone becomes Christian and gets saved. Thank God for His mercy. The world is going through some unbelievable pains by experiencing the De-christianized USA, but God always provides strong hope and assurance.

    “For as you were once disobedient to God, yet have now obtained mercy through their disobedience, even so these also have now been disobedient, that through the mercy shown you they also may obtain mercy. For God has committed them all to disobedience, that He might have mercy on all. Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!

    ‘For who has known the mind of the Lord?
    Or who has become His counselor?’
    ‘Or who has first given to Him
    And it shall be repaid to him?’

    For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.”

    (Romans chapter 11)

  • If it goes on like this, paper money will soon be abolished in the West and only those who bend their knees to Baal will be able to pay for water and electricity. All those who won’t bend their knees to Baal (probably be labelled “hate thought” by then) won’t have any means to pay by then. We’re in for one “helluva” ride, folks! Let’s just make that a ride to heaven!
