    For what “IT” is worth, I believe that God made everyone of us cause He’s all Love and by having created us, He keep going on and on just like our body is “ONE” with many cells, He is “ONE” with all of His Children that Love Him…He keeps giving us talents to invest and/or should I say Grace which we can use to do good. When our heart through our soul and spirit team UP as “ONE” like “The Trinity” where our soul can be the child of our Heavenly Father, our Spirit can be the child of “The Holy Spirit” and our flesh can be the child of “Jesus The Christ”.. Having attained that Faith of sanctifying Grace then we can all make “IT” again to Paradise with God’s LOVE without trying to engage in reality combat so why should any of US (usual sinners} not all make “IT” to Heaven without “Fear” if we Truly believe in GOD (Good Old Dad)?
    God Bless all His Children

  • Dan

    Absolutely on the mark! A great thought provoking episode. Gives new meaning of ones talents that God has given us and how we can multiply them instead of burying them. Thank you for this incite.

  • Ivana

    This was an awesome episode, it answered a lot of questions I’ve been having lately! Thanks a lot!

  • Larry Linville

    he made us because he was disappointed in the monkey !

    The Baltimore Catechism, that the VII sect threw away, tells us, “God created us to know, love, and serve Him in this world so that we can be happy with Him for eternity in the next.

    Stop your protestant Vatican II sect loving ways of making up warm and fuzzy stuff about God and return to the pre VII authentic ONE, HOLY CATHOLIC and APOSTOLIC Church where the Truth never changes. Six protestants helped write the “new” mass, so one should question its validity. Trent also instructed Catholics that the Mass could never be changes, it was.

    Did you mean a different Proverb Dr Marshall?
    The one you mention in the podcast is different.

    “A reproof availeth more with a wise man, than a hundred stripes with a fool.” Proverbs 17:10

    • BelovedCatholic

      Proverbs 17:9 (ESV)
      Whoever covers an offense seeks love, but he who repeats a matter separates close friends.

      • Marcos Gonzalez Villalba

        Thank you for the correct proverb!

  • Glen

    The first time I heard your podcast and although I am aware of what you spoke but it has given me perspective and brought clarity to my understanding. Keep sharing these gold nuggets and I will surely go through the remaining ones.
