Hello, John and Doves,
Mardi Gras 2012 falls on Tuesday, February 21, 2012.
The Carnival [think Rio] cruise ship Costa Concordia [think ecumenism] sank on Friday, January 13, 2012.
The lives lost in this tragedy stand in human contrast to our great God.
"Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear." Isaiah 59:1
I believe that Jesus of Nazareth, born in Bethlehem to Joseph and the Virgin Mary, about 2014 years ago, on Sukkot, died on the cross for our sins so that HaShem could save anyone He wanted to save, for any reason, or for no discernable reason at all.
Having said that, I conclude with John that,
"If we confess our sins, then He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9
Baruch HaShem Yeshua,
