English Standard Version (ESV)
22 the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,’
Plain and simple. To read the information on Islam and the extremists, and other religious movements, you might find this page helpful (all PDF files cam be downloaded):
God is in control although we may not think so at the time. We know that these people and groups are out there but God knows more. When we ask God to help us, He does. He loves all people and sent His precious Son for us to pay for our sins. Forgiveness is ours and it’s free. We don’t have to die for our sins
It is with this assurance that we can go on each and every day. We can rejoice in His blessings and gifts. We thank Him for His grace (undeserved love) to us. He will provide us with the comfort that is found only in the Cross of Christ.
We move on with Jesus…
