Hello Elise , I so agree with the things you posted. The LORD convicted me of my murmurings And I spent a time in repentance and thanksgiving to HIM yesterday. Btw I was born in n.ireland, co. Antrim. Your sister in CHRIST. AW.

And how about Muslim honour killings - right up their alley!!
I am quite confused with your assessment of the Bible. I do not believe that all are redeemed, but I DO believe that Christ died so that all COULD be redeemed IF they believe. However, we know that all will not believe. John 3:16 For God so loved the world (all men) that he gave his only begotten son (Jesus) that whosoever believeth in him would not perish but have everlasting life. Those separated from God chose not to believe. Those who are redeemed believed. Perhaps we are both wrong in our assessments of the Bible. I do not wish to be, I only wish to take God at His Word. His Word makes it clear to me that ALL have the opportunity to come to Him through Christ. I for one will believe.
