There’s something horribly wrong in a  world when those charged and entrusted with the welfare of defenseless children– can’t be trusted.

It doesn’t matter how many laws are currently on the books, how many are changed or added to validate society’s waxing and waning choices- or how many constitutional rights are stripped away by people in deceptive flux.  God’s laws are never reversed, removed, irrelevant or superseded by man.  His forgiveness and reconciliation are for all repentant no matter the sin- Jesus’ blood was and is enough.  However, He is not a man that He would lie, so His warnings if we fail to repent and receive eternal security are as assured as His second coming!  

Jesus: This is the truth: unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  In that kingdom, the most humble who are most like this child are the greatest.  And whoever welcomes a child, welcomes her in My name, welcomes Me.  And do not lead astray one of the weak and friendless who believes in Me. If you do, it would be better for you to be dragged down with a millstone and drowned in the bottom of the sea. The VOICE: Matthew 18:3-6; 10′
