  1. It remains my choice to refrain from judging others.

    This remains the truth though you are unable to discern it.

    However, others now have this "test of time" to grope out the truth for

    Meanwhile, you have remained in my prayers, dear Bob, whom I love, in
    Lord Christ's holy name.

    May you accept Him as your personal Lord and Savior, someday, so that
    you too will have eternal life and the amazing riches of His
    everlasting kingdom.

    Here's how:

    Please note that God truly made this special link describing that He is
    the great "I am" and that His message is as simple as the number 2
    which is a number between 1 to 9 and reminds us of His 2 commandments,
    the 2 arms of the cross, the 2nd part of the Trinity, the 2 finger sign
    of the Prince of Peace [who remains *V*ictorious over death and satan],
    and the 2PD Approach. Let it not ever be written that Christ did not
    make His presence known here on Usenet :)

    Also, note that Exodus 16:16 continues to remind us that 16 oz plus 16
    oz makes 2 pounds, which is "a certain measure of weight," which is
    what "omer" literally means in Hebrew.

    Enter the 2PD-OMER Approach:

    At His service,
