  1.

Great Comment. God Bless You Brother.

I would just say there are words written that say this, those of the faith in the room would know others not of the faith would not know where the words came from and many in this boat even agreed with them.

    My way of witnessing without break the companies polices 🙂


  4. atheists have more rights today, than christians… sad really


Rev. 22:20 'Surely I am coming quickly, Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus!'
