Crucified Afresh

Crucified Afresh

Quote; “When the world is at last brought up for trial before the great white throne… what a reckoning will have to be made for nailing to the cross one who came to our world as a living epistle of the law. God will ask each one the question, What have you done with My only-begotten Son? What will those answer who have refused to accept the truth?

There she was, busily trying to get some important computer work done just before all the family drifted back in for food and care, the phone rang, and the nice polite man on the line compassionately advised her that there were people trying to hack into her Computer.   The very polite man declared that his name was “XXX” from Microsoft, and that we have recognised your computer is very sluggish on line and will only get worse over time …but a simple fix to speed up your browsing speed that normally cost between 100 – 200 dollars… … Continue reading
