Again Mike, great article.
“ As I have said many times before, unbelief is an amazing thing to witness. It does not matter how deep you go in God’s Word to show these people the truth nor how illogical their beliefs are when compared with God’s truth, it does not matter, they will not believe.”
So true…even Jesus encounters it, which is pretty clear in John 6 when you read the Chapter and all the amazing events but ends with John 6:66:

Romans 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
We can only hope and pray and proclaim God’s word faithfully.!

He made several very rude and crude comments. I made one comment about how hypocritical it was for those demanding tolerance to…
