Forgiveness: The Answer to our Broken World

The primary concern of my newsletter is economic well being for subscribers. But beneath all the destruction that is taking place in America and around the world is a spiritual battle for the hearts and souls of each of us human beings. (Ephesians 6:11-13 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.)

Here are two powerful clips I hope you will take the time to watch regarding this incident:  & the Judge afterward
