My flesh believes easIER is the best, and my flesh enormously influences my life, so that my biggest idol, is easIER. But easIER is not the best. Scripture says the BEST is whatever Jesus has for me this day, week, month, year. My flesh says the BEST is whatever is easIER, or easIEST. My flesh […]

billionaires like Warren Buffet and Bill Gates who vote Democrat would be donating billions to US government programs, but instead, they donate billions to non-profit organizations to solve societal problems.
