Acts 17:26; “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation”.

James 2:9; “But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors”.
Malachi 2:10; “Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?”

Proverbs 28:13; “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.”

Please, pray for those caught in this web of lies! And pray God will show them the way out so they can have a saving knowledge of Him!
