Sour Grapes and Rotten Teeth, by David Valderrama
In these last days and perilous times we NEED THE LORD more than ever. Apart from Him we can do nothing. We need His sorrow to purify our hearts and to empower us to endure till the very end. The U.S. and many nations for many generations have devoured sin like candy. Consequently, judgment is here and judgment is coming. Through much tribulation we must inherit the kingdom of God. Godly sorrow and the hope of the resurrection ought to be our meat that strengthens to watch and to be sober and to not sleep as others; to do our Father's will , take up our crosses and to let the consequences fall where they will. This message is a call to godly sorrow and a warning of judgment. When God has determined to judge a nation it will happen. Get your house and heart in order.

“Reason dictates that persons who are truly noble and who love wisdom will honor and love only what is true. They will refuse to follow traditional viewpoints if those viewpoints are worthless...Instead, a person who genuinely loves truth must choose to do and speak what is true, even if he is threatened with death...I have not come to flatter you by this written petition, nor to impress you by my words. I have come to simply beg that you do not pass judgment until you have made an accurate and thorough investigation. Your investigation must be free of prejudice, hearsay, and any desire to please the superstitious crowds. As for us, we are convinced that you can inflict no lasting evil on us. We can only do it to ourselves by proving to be wicked people. You can kill us—but you cannot harm us.” From Justin Martyr's first apology 150 A.D. Martyred A.D. 160
