  • How can one comment on such dismal predictions? Last night I was watching a program showing the year 2012 as the end of civilization as we know it and the Vultures getting ready to exploit the millions who believe it. People will believe anything if it is said loud enough, often enough and spread by the many facets of the media. Remember y2k? Jones town? Comet Kahoutek (sp.?) and didn’t the Republicans say that it was going to be the end of the World, as we know it, if the Health care bill was passed?

Shall not the God of the whole earth do right? (Gen. 18:25) Jesus said not to fret for it shall all come to pass as He has ordained. Read the Bible. We as Christians will be triumphant! Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved. John 3:16. Billy G.

I guess it’s another example of money talking – loud and clear.
