    You are made in the Image of the Living God. Do not harm yourself. Do you know where you will go when you die? Jesus Christ is God the Son, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, to the right Hand of God the Father, so that there is no condemnation for those who believe on Him. Jesus Christ is God the Son and entered into His own creation. Jesus was born of a virgin, died for the sins of the world. He was dead for three days. He defeated death and has the keys to Life and Death. On the cross, our Lord and Savior said "it is finished". Amen. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only BEGOTTEN SON, that whosoever believes on Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus Christ rose from the dead three days after His crucifixion, and because He raised Himself from the dead, and the Father raised Him from the dead and the Holy Spirit raised Him from the dead, we who are in Him, shall also be raised on that day of the coming of our Lord and Savior. Revelation 20:6 “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power...” We will be with God for eternity. Mark 1:15, KJV: "And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel." Gospel means good news. Jesus Christ is God. Our Creator. God is Triune. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God is One. Three Persons in the Divine and Holy Trinity. Romans 1:20, KJV “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:" Psalm 14 King James Version 14" The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God..." Imputed righteousness is the righteousness of Jesus Christ credited to the Christian, enabling the Christian to be justified; imparted righteousness is what God does in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit after justification, working in the Christian to enable and empower the process of sanctification. Hebrews 4:12, KJV: "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Repent and believe the Gospel. We don't have to come under the wrath of a JUST and TRUE GOD. All have sinned. If you've lied even once, stolen, lusted, you have sinned. None of our "good works" earns Heaven. Jesus did all the work for us who believe on Him. Jesus is the ONLY NAME under Heaven by which we might be saved. Warning: Galatians 1:8-9 King James Version 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

The latter two are just amazing; PBDC have stunning visuals and An interesting style; Backflip is loveable; Burning Kabaddi is pretty fun so It's easily watchable; and Miss Nagatoro I didn't like at first and was actually pissed by all the bullying, but after 3 episodes now I think and hope the goal of the series will be to condamm bullyism and teach how to deal with it

    Vivy - Great show. You are the second reviewer I've watched that has said it's good, but the time jumps and flashback transitions could be a little smoother. Nagamoto - pfft. No comment 86 - derivative, but you knew that. Kind of clishe and boring honestly. Mars Red - Visually, it's pretty. Artsy and weird and waiting for the plot to go somewhere? Anywhere...? Od TAxi - Haven't seen it...yet. MB is the second person give it a positive response. PDC - eh...meh. Not my kinda show so dunno. Those Snow Wite nnotes- OK, ok..I'll watch it. Backflip!!- ANOTHER sports anime? Tokyo Revengers - Just don't like the animation style tbh. To Your Eternity - ON my to do list. TRPG is even Shh!T!er that real LIfe - So far, I like it. THe Saint's Magic Poer... - LIke it so far. Joran - Eh..yeah, well..I Like it better than MArs Red.
