The Lord is good. This is a fact. It may not seem real at all times.
Whereby, humans are spiritual and physically limited in time; God is spirit and
has a heart which does not allow Him to be worn down as a machine nor be limited
by the doctrine of science. It is because of this relationship one must have
with God which makes life good. It allows us to grow and be saved and develop a
more healthy and positive outlook on reality. This relationship with God does

war between heavenly bodies and wickedness to bring this message and form a
balance of holiness here within the kingdom of Earth. Men have fought in armies
through numerous wars and much death has happened to bring the cause of justice
for one’s salvation. Jesus claims the victory in God’s name for this cause
through a grotesque moment in human’s history on the cross. All these things no
matter how trivial or painful brings on an overall honor of goodness, justice
and peace for our salvation. The Christ who is the author and finisher of all
human faith establishes a kingdom of Heaven here on Earth for the goodness of
humankind. This story completes the goodness in the nature of
