GOD'Z PEOPLE WILL BE RAISED TO LIFE.
If we preach tha christ was raised from death, how can some of you say that the dead will not be raised to life? If they won't be raised to life, Christ himself wasn't raised to life, and he wasn't raised to life, our messege is worthless, and so is your faith. Just as John died because of Adam, he will ba raised to life because of christ.
ADAM BROUGHT DEATH TO ALL OF US AND CHRIST WILL BRING LIFE TO ALL OF US. AMEN

IT'S BEEN WAY OVER A YEAR SINCE MY COUSIN WAS MURDERED, AND WE STILL DON'T BELIEVE THAT WE LOST SUCH AN IMPORTANT LOVING PERSON. IT IS STILL HARD TO ACCEPT THAT SOMEBODY SO YOUNG, SOMEBODY SO KIND AND GENEROUS WOULD BE TAKEN FROM US IN SUCH A HORRIFIC MANNER. WE ARE STILL AWAITING JUSTICE, OR HAVE WE BEEN PUT ON A BACK BURNER FOR A NEW MURDER !!!!

I miss you John. You were my friend. I still have your number programmed in my cell phone even though I know I'll never hear your voice again. I miss your laughter and your corny sayings (punch it peggy). I'm so glad you're my angel now John.......so glad. God brought you into my life for a reason; you were so special. I will never forget you. I'm so glad that earth has not sorrow that heaven cannot heal.
