      Another wonderful explanation of our Biblical words Creativeone. Is is amazing that we can read these words in a sentence and understand what they mean and yet when asked for a definition, we realize that we don't know the exact explanation. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.

      Blessings To You

      lovely way of putting it. When you asked, what would we be able to pay God as a ransom for our own lives, really brought to my awareness how precious the ransom that was paid really was. Thank you for sharing.

      Thank you for your wonderful compliment. I am glad I have that effect because usual I am not very appreciated. You should do backlinks because that brings in the money. Comments or clicks from Hubbers do not - as far as I know.
