Call-In Classic Christianity Radio – Bob George P424 (3-21-19)

Bob George RadioJustin called on behalf of a friend to help him out, for he was is struggling with emotional and spiritual pain. Bob replied by explaining how God designed the mind, will and emotions. Emotions are dumb and only respond to what the mind feeds, whether real or fantasy, and it cannot discern the difference. The key to overcoming emotional pain is to renew the mind. For as the mind is renewed the feelings follow. To have proper feelings then your mind needs to dwell on things that are true. The word of God is true. But in order to understand truth one must be born again of the Spirit. When you are born again and taught of the Spirit you will learn to walk in complete joy and freedom.

Bill asked, “If our nation’s laws are derived from the 10 commandments, how do we not have an ongoing relationship with the law?” Bob explained to Bill what the purpose of the law is. All good and perfect laws that govern men are derived from the nature of God, and can be traced to the 10 commandments, but the problem is that man cannot perfectly carry out he law. The law only makes him conscious of sin. Civil laws exist for the purpose of restraining evil. All men will still be in subjection to governing authorities, even speeding laws, and will pay the price the governing authority sets. Since the basic nature of man is sinful then the law must exist to curtail sin. But the law can only condemn and offers no hope for life. Yet man does not recognize his state of spiritual death. Man cannot have a relationship with the law and have life. The law was also added so that man may recognize his utter sinfulness and seek a savior. So the law is designed for the lost and not the saved. You cannot separate law from the punishment of it. In order for man to be saved, to have life, the law had to be fulfilled and the price of death for sin had to paid. Man cannot pay that price. The only hope of man to have life is for the cause of death, which is sin, to be taken away. That is, man had to taken out from under the law and put under grace. That is what Jesus Christ accomplished for man. The believer is not under the condemnation of the law that condemns him to eternal spiritual death. He had put his faith in Jesus Christ as being the propitiation for sin by his death on the cross, and accepted Christ’s offer of His resurrected life. Through the life of Christ, the believer has the privilege to participate in the divine nature. As a new creation in Christ, you died to the law in order for Christ to live in you and through you. Love is the fulfillment of the law, God is love and Jesus is God, and with the love of God in you, what kind of behavior will be produced as you walk in grace, a relationship with the living God? The law can only stir up the sinful nature but grace sets men free to live a new and different life.

Joe simply called to thank Bob for his teaching, for being honest, truthful and what he says is backed by the bible. He thanked Bob for explaining truth to make it come to life in his understanding. Bob was appreciative of his compliment and gave credit to where credit is due and related how we are all on this journey growing in the grace and understanding of God together. Bob, I am sure pondered in his own heart with deep gratitude toward God, as he reflected how he was humbled along life’s way for him to be able to receive truth from God. Bob replied, “We are all appreciative of how God works in our lives. We hear but we don’t hear. We seem not to hear with our inner ears. When we are ready and God has humbled our hearts, where we are ready to hear the grace of God, then it as if the first time we hear truth.” Joe was so grateful and had in his heart to want to give financially to Bob George ministries and was also the reason for his call. He knows how much the truth helped him personally and so wanted this truth to reach out to many more people. He called to encourage Bob and to offer support to Bob George Ministries. Bob in turn expressed gratitude for those who give so Bob can continue to do what he does. Bob would not be able to continue on the air without the financial support he received.

Cheryl asked about the passage in 1 Corinthians where Paul addresses men should have short hair and women should have long hair or a head covering. What is the purpose or meaning of that passage? Bob first explained the context and the culture in those days with shrine prostitutes to help bring greater clarity in understanding the passage of scripture. Woman who were prostitutes had their heads shaved and so a woman with a shaved head who is now a believer would not want to be identified with a prostitute. So Paul said if you have your head shaved, you might want to consider a head covering, if not for your own sake, for whatever shame you might feel, but also for the sake of others so as not to be a stumbling block to them. The apostle Paul often uses events or people to illustrate spiritual truth. Godliness is not about eating or drinking or what you wear but is about faith expressing itself in love. So knowing the purpose in God’s creation of male and female, that they have distinct roles, how might the way one dresses or wears their hair, be appropriate in showing the proper attitude in regards to the role of a man or woman as God created? Bob explains.

Cheryl being sick herself, had also been hearing people say to her that if she has enough faith she can be made well. Bob addressed the false teaching that says we can direct God what to do and essentially take the place of God, demanding of him to do what we ask. We do not demand God to do something. People who are sick need to get well. This body is in a fallen condition and will eventually die. Is someone in sin and lacks faith because he did have enough faith to stop the aging process, a sickness unto death? You can certainly make your requests be made known to God, as a child of God who perfectly loves you, but leave the results to God. Simply trust Him and His love for you and that He always has the best in mind for you. Recall that the apostle Paul asked God to remove a thorn in the flesh three times and God’s response was not to heal him but to tell him that his grace is sufficient for him. God told Paul that because of the exceeding divine revelations he was receiving he would become proud if his flesh was not buffeted. Paul was exhorted to depend all the more on Christ and His sufficiency. Paul replied by saying, “I will boast all the more in my weaknesses so that God’s power may rest on me.”

Marion was bogged down in what scripture says in regards to election and was, in general, receptive to listening to Bob. Later, though, he seems to almost be challenging Bob from what scripture said. He evidently has been listening to much teaching from a Reformed church. A common question often brought up is, “Did God hate Esau?” Bob countered by saying that in Proverbs it is stated that God hates the proud. Does God really hate the proud person? Or is God really saying he hates what the proud heart does to a man. God resists the proud because pride in the heart of a man is what keeps him from coming to Jesus Christ for receiving life.

Luke 13:34
“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.

Who was unwilling? God or the Pharisees?

That is the same attitude God has toward Esau. Esau had received a gift from God yet saw no value in that gift and despised the gift in his heart. Now, as for the broader discussion of election, Bob encouraged people to study Ephesians even before Romans. For Ephesians is very clear in explaining that God’s choice, or election, was that before the foundation of the world that both the Jew and the Gentile will be saved the same way, by grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. So election is not about God choosing certain people for hell and others for heaven! That is an insult to the very nature of God! God is love and what love is that to send someone to hell? God does not send anyone to hell for men are condemned already, being born spiritually dead, and by failing to come to Christ for life, they remain spiritually dead. Jesus came to restore man back to spiritual life. Why do people look at one scripture and form a doctrine over it, ignoring context or all other scriptures for clarification? People can quote what scripture says but fail to understand what it means! There are many passages of scripture explaining the nature of God. God is not willing that any should perish. By believing election of the Reform movement, you would have to say the bible contradicts itself, and then you would be unstable in all your ways, trying to believe two contradictory things to both be true. What damning theology and an insult to the character of God and His finished work!

Justin from Vancouver, British Columbia

Justin called on behalf of a friend who was letting emotional, spiritual pain overrule his life. He asked Bob for advice. Bob replied by saying that emotions are a result of what we are thinking.

Proverbs 4:23
“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”

God designed man so emotions predictably respond to what we are thinking. So we do not have emotional problems but thinking problems evidenced by the emotions we experience. If you went to a scary movie, you got the daylights scared out of you, with your mind looking at a scary scene, and with your ears hearing scary sounds. Your emotions did not know whether you were in a movie theater or in the shower with a psychopath. Your emotions have no way of discerning fact from fantasy or truth from error. They just respond predictably to whatever you are thinking. You can become an emotional basket case today through preoccupation with thinking of things of the past, mistakes made in the past, or about sins committed in the past and your emotions have no way of knowing if that is going on today or in the past. You can also go into the future and think about bad things, about hardships going on tomorrow, and be overwhelmed with the thought of sitting on a street corner without a roof over your head. Our emotions cannot discern whether that is going on in the present or in the future.

Romans 12:2
Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.

You are not not altering the mind but renewing the mind. You cannot walk by faith yesterday, it is gone. You cannot walk by faith tomorrow for it is not here. The only time to please God is today. So we are to live one day at a time.

Matthew 6:25-27
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

People are emotional basket cases because they will hold onto the past or hold onto resentment. Resentment is like holding onto arsenic and you drink the poison and you die. When you hold onto such things you are the benefactor of that. We have emotional pain by holding onto what we are thinking. You need to get your mind renewed and get your mind renewed on truth. Since truth is what sets you free, error is what binds you.

John 8:32
You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free

Let’s not go to the Dr. Spock books or the Johnny come lately books, or archaic books thousands of years ago. I am going to the word of God for truth.

John 17:17
Sanctify them by the truth; Your word is truth.

2 Timothy 3:16
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness

God’s word is truth. In order to understand the word of God you must be born again (John 3). When you are born again, you accepted by faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and what all that means to you.

1 Corinthians 2:8-10
8 None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him — 10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.

When the mind is renewed the emotions are renewed and you will find yourself living in joy instead of emotional pain that people go through.

John 10:10
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

Bill from Beloy, Wisconsin

Bill asked, “If our nations laws derived from 10 commandments how do we not have an ongoing relationship with law just predicated on fact we are living in a fallen world that is governed by law?”

The law is as much in effect today as it has ever been for the lost. Law is given for a person, to show man is perfectly sinful so that he would turn to salvation in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 3:19 (TLB)
19 Well then, why were the laws given? They were added after the promise was given, to show men how guilty they are of breaking God’s laws. But this system of law was to last only until the coming of Christ, the Child to whom God’s promise was made.

If man is sinful, and bible says he is, then there has to be laws to curtail the sinful nature of man. There is a problem with liberal theology that says man is basically good.

Romans 3:23 (TLB)
Yes, all have sinned; all fall short of God’s glorious ideal

Psalm 14:3
But no, all have strayed away; all are rotten with sin. Not one is good, not one!

A liberal politician cannot see his own hypocrisy. To such a politician, one could ask him, “How come you cannot save your divorce but you want to save countries to get along. As good as a talker as you are you could not negotiate to stay with your wife?” Such is the hypocrisy of a double-minded man. The world must have laws for society to live by. You and I are still under society laws.

Romans 13:1-5
Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. 4 For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.

I am totally free from the law of God because I am led internally by the Spirit of God.

Romans 8:13-15
13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”

That is not in contrast with the law of God. If I am under law, I am under a curse of the law.

Galatians 3:10
For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

You cannot separate law from the consequences of it. You cannot be under law and not be under the wages of sin. When you start breaking your own law, like the politicians do, where do you think your laws come from? Every law on the books came from the 10 commandments. The law demands perfection. We come to Christ for life because he freed us from the consequences of sin, which is death. But the world is still under the law.

Bill was still pondering over what Bob was saying and wrestling in his mind with how people can be confused over law and grace. By asking this question, he is probably still wrestling in his own understanding of law and grace.

Bill asked, “Yes, we are still saved by grace but we must have a little law mixed with it? Not that law has anything to with our salvation or sanctification though. So this subject” said Bill, ” is where he sees how there is confusion.” Bob responded by explaining how someone comes to understand the grace of God. When someone understands the grace of God, they will see clearly how law and grace cannot be mixed. No one will come to the grace in God until he has a Romans 7 experience.

Romans 7:14-25
14 We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.

21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.

Paul expressed how those things he did not want to do, he did, and those things he ought to do, he did not do. Paul exclaimed, “Oh, what a wretched man I am. Who will free from the law of sin and death.” Paul then turned to Christ, his only hope of life, and expressed praise to the Lord Jesus, who set him free. If you are still thinking you are a pretty good person, you might as well stop thinking you are saved. We are still living out physical lives in conflict with sin-dwelling flesh. We overcome the desires of the flesh by walking in the Spirit.

Galatians 5:16-18
16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

The only way to live as a believer is to learn to live by the Spirit.

Joe from Los Angeles, CA

Joe simply called to thank Bob for his teaching, for being honest, truthful and what he says is backed by the bible. He thanked Bob for explaining truth to make it come to life in his understanding. Bob was appreciative of his compliment and gave credit to where credit is due and related how we are all on this journey growing in the grace and understanding of God together.

2 Corinthians 9:7
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Cheryl from Vancouver British, Columbia
Cheryl asked for clarification of what the meaning of a head covering is about in 1 Corinthians 11. She has gone to churches where women have little dorleys on their head.

1 Corinthians 11:1-16
1 Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.

2 I praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to the traditions just as I passed them on to you. 3 But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. 4 Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. 5 But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is the same as having her head shaved. 6 For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.

7 A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. 8 For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; 9 neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. 10 It is for this reason that a woman ought to have authority over her own head, because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. 12 For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.

13 Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14 Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15 but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering. 16 If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice—nor do the churches of God.

In 1 Corinthians 11:6, if a woman does not cover her head she should have her hair cut off. But if it is a shame to have her hair cut off, then she should cover her head. What is that all about? Temple prostitution, in those days, were rampant. Woman would walk around with deals on their ankles that said follow me. Essentially entire population made of temple prostitutes and those prostitutes all had their hair cut off. When a person comes to Christ, then grow your hair, otherwise you will be associated with the prostitutes. A footnote in my NIV translation has this rendering:

1 Corinthians 11:5-6
“Every man who prays or prophesies with long hair dishonors his head. 5 But every woman who prays or prophesies with no covering of hair dishonors her head—she is just like one of the “shorn women.” 6 If a woman has no covering, let her be for now with short hair; but since it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair shorn or shaved, she should grow it again.”

The phrase “is like a shorn woman” is referring to a prostitute. If a woman has no covering, then she should grow it again. Do not be associated with what that shaved head represented, a prostitute. If you had it shaved, because you once were a prostitute, then grow your hair.

Now, the spiritual truth Paul was addressing was that of headship, a man being under Christ as head, and according to God’s creation in Genesis, a woman being made for man. That is what this scripture is saying in reference to man being the glory of God and woman the glory of man, and showing due respect for that headship and creative order of God in regards to hair. A man should dress like a man and should not have long hair and a woman should dress like a woman and have long hair is what we agree as proper in today’s world. Now, let us not be contentious about this, says Paul. Why? Is godliness about hair, what you eat or drink or what you wear? What is the reason for this practice in their day? We have no other practice. So this is not about legalism but proper order, for certainly there was a need to address this topic in the context of the influence of prostitution in their day.

Cheryl went to a church where woman had a head covering. Bob replied, “What good is dorleys on top of head do for you? Does it make you more holy?” What is the attitude of the heart by doing such things? Legalistic righteousness? Bob sees all of that as legalistic gobble-gook. One of her Christian girl friends when she is sick tells her does not have enough faith. Bob answered by expressing how false their faith is. This is what they are really saying faith is. “I say to God what I want and he is obligated to obey me.” That is not faith but a repudiation of faith. Got the these ministers who have rugs on head. Get rid of false teeth and put regular ones on. There are so many ridiculous people out there.

Cheryl then said, “The pastor’s wife claims that they pray themselves well.” Bob responded, “How are you going to pray yourself well. If you are sick you have to get well.” They say, “My prayers will cause God to do something.” Bob replied, “If I can cause God to respond to me then I am greater than God. It has not worked for me. It does not work for them either. They just lie about it.”

Marion from Augusta, Georgia

Marion asked about Romans 9 where talks about God hating Esau. Why did God hate Esau?”

Romans 9:10-13
10 Not only that, but Rebekah’s children were conceived at the same time by our father Isaac. 11 Yet, before the twins were born or had done anything good or bad—in order that God’s purpose in election might stand: 12 not by works but by him who calls—she was told, “The older will serve the younger.”[d] 13 Just as it is written: “Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.”

It is not a case of hating Esau but hating what Esau did because he gave up his birthright, what God had given him. Esau did not find anything meaningful to it. If God resists the proud then one could say God hates the proud. God hates pride because it hinders them from coming to Him for life so He resists them until they are humbled. People who are humbled will have their hearts ready to receive. God longs to be gracious to us! In the Reform movement, it is taught that people have no free will. That is not true. People are spiritually dead but not dead in their soul! The soul is the seat of the mind, will and emotions. People want to hang onto one verse about hating Esau. “See there”, they say, “God does not love everyone.” Yet numerous scriptures testify of God’s love.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

The whosoever is all inclusive. It does not exclude anyone from God’s plan of salvation. Not everyone will believe the message. But God provided everything so man can be saved.

The issue is God hated the rebellion that took place in the heart of Esau. So if God appointed some for hell and some for heaven, then one would have to say God is not love. By believing God hated Esau, you would have to say the bible contradicts itself.

Romans 9:11
11 Yet, before the twins were born or had done anything good or bad—in order that God’s purpose in election might stand.

What is that? God’s predestination is He is going to save people who come to Christ by faith as a result of heart being humbled. God resists the proud. God predetermined no one will be saved without coming to Christ by faith. Predestination is totally about the Jew and the Gentile. Th book of Ephesians makes that very clear, that both the Jew and the Gentile come to Christ the same way, by faith, to receive God’s offer of life through Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 2:1-9
1 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. 4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Let us see the inference between the Jew and the Gentile portrayed in Ephesians. Election, predestination has to do with Jew and Gentile, nothing more and nothing less. Not reformed theology that says this individual is elected and this other one is not! That is foolish theology being perpetuated still today by those who proclaim themselves as theologians and multitudes have fallen for the lie. Just read Ephesians and it is clear. Ephesians is really saying that the Jews is predestined the same way as the Gentile to be conformed to the image of Christ. As you read Ephesians in context, you will see that the phrase, “As for you” is referring to the Gentile. Paul is addressing the Gentile believers at Ephesus and showing how both the Jew and the Gentile alike were worthy of God’s wrath but God saved them the same way through Jesus Christ, and made one new body out of the two, where there is now no longer Jew or Gentile, but one body in Christ.

What is taught in Ephesians is in such stark contrast to what is taught in the Reform movement of “you’s” and “me’s”, stating or inferring that some are appointed to damnation. As far Esau, it is not a fact He hated Esau but that God hated that Esau’s sacrifice was his made up sacrifice and not the one and only sacrifice by God.

Marion then asked, “When does your name go into the book of life?” Your name goes into the book of life when you are born again. Then Marion asked, “What about what it says in Revelation 17?” Bob then cut him off and urged him to stay away from that Reform theology he had been listening to and check out the meaning of the word of God for yourself. Bob said, “Go into Ephesians before you study Romans with the thought in mind about the Jews and the Gentiles. How do you know He elected you? People I know under the Reform movement are so under the law that they cannot be led by the Spirit. If the Spirit of God is not leading you, then maybe the Spirit of God is not in you. And if He is not in you, then you are not born again. Stay away from that Reform theology of election. It is a disgrace to God that he loves man enough that he would send some to eternal damnation. What damning theology and an insult to the character of God and His finished work.”

2 Corinthians 5:15
And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

Jesus died for all, not just for the those who would be saved! That Reform doctrine is heresy! And he died for all to take away the cause of death, which is sin, in order that he would rise again to offer eternal life to all men. He pleads for men to come to Him for life.

Jesus told the Pharisees of His love for them.

Matthew 23:27
“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.

Was God not willing to save them? Of course God was willing to save them! He wanted to gather them as children together. Jesus said they were not willing to come to Him for life.

Matthew 18:14
In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish.
