I know this: Love is still there in the middle of our every bad decision and wrong turn, looking upon us with no judgement, holding us despite our own disbelief.
Beloved Children of God
Your belief in Jesus does not save you. Jesus saves you. Not your belief. Salvation is not a product of your mind.
