What the Liberian Constitution really says about citizens calling on a President to ‘step down’ Disclaimer: I have no particular interest in either side, but to discuss the matter at hand in a constitutional context.Does a call by any group of citizens for the President of Liberia to step down really “bespeak treason”, as the Minister of Justice (MoJ) has so emphatically stated in his December 2, 2019 letter, rejecting the request for permit and protection of the Council of Patriots’ planned December 30 protest?The cleverly unemotional letter by Justice Minister Frank Musah Dean, arguing that the planned protest by the CoP “bespeaks treason”, is a dangerous insinuation based on an inference dressed up as the wholeness of constitutional fact.In his letter to the CoP, the Minister cited Article 62 of the 1986 Constitution of the Republic of Liberia as the means by which the President may be removed, apart from elections. He then cited Article 76 to state verbatim the Constitution’s definition of “Treason against the Republic.”In not so many words, it appears the Minister aimed to steer the CoP back to Article 83, which prescribes how the President may arise and descend as head of state, under normal circumstances. In other words, wait until the next presidential elections and vote the man out if you can.As Minister Dean communicated to the CoP, Article 62 of the Constitution says the President may be removed (before the end of his or her constitutional term) by impeachment process. This requires the decisive action by the legislature, beginning with a Bill of Impeachment in the House of Representatives followed by trial by the Senate which is presided over by the Chief Justice.However, for the Justice Minister to directly conclude that, because there has not been a move for impeachment against the President, therefore the call by a group of citizens for the President to step down is treasonable, is dangerously presumptive.Surely, if read with care, the Constitution, in its supreme wisdom, prescribes a methodical process by which citizens may meaningfully participate in the structure of governance to ensure that Article 1 lives up to its promise.Article 1, which reposes all power in the people, says: “All free governments are instituted by [the people’s] authority and for their benefit and [the people] have the right to alter and reform the [instituted government] when their safety and happiness so require.”Article 1 goes on to prescribe means by which such “right to alter and reform” an instituted government may take place, essentially pointing to Article 83 (under Chapter VIII), which outlines elections.However, on the very strength of Article 1, Article 17 of the same Constitution grants citizens “the right to assemble and consult upon the common good, to instruct their representatives, to petition the Government or other functionaries for the redress of grievances…”In the absence of the willingness of the Legislature to impeach the President, is it not within the people’s power to invoke Article 17?Is the call for the President to step down really treasonable, or is it reasonable?Naturally, the call for a step-down may be perceived as a threat to any leader, including our current President. And then, there is the stigma of actually being asked (or demanded) to step down. Whether the President decides to step down or not is another matter. It is still the people’s constitutional right to freely assemble and express themselves!These are the vicissitudes of democracy. There are consequences for the freedoms that we exercise as entitlement. Those consequences are not necessarily detrimental or negative, though they can be. Sometimes they can be helpful, instructive.That said, I urge the CoP to continue to conduct its affairs responsibly and be issues-based. The passion with which they pursue their cause must never cross the boundaries of civility. Yor mor try hard o!Liberia is once again at a crossroads, where the burning desires of the people — not in an election year — are on the table. The President and his Justice Minister must also not risk repeating the mistakes of their counterparts from the year 1979.Yet, we have a political environment in which the President alarmed in his first year that there was an assassination attempt on his life by opposition figures. And because he has yet to provide evidence of his claim, the President, by that utterance, has effectively served notice to the opposition bloc that criticizing or even critiquing the President could land one in trouble.True to form, we have seen mass media outlets perceived as critics of the Weah administration shut down and or their applications for operating license stalled. We have seen a sitting lawmaker, who is a critic of the Weah Administration, barricaded in his own home by armed police for the alleged assault of another individual. That lawmaker’s home was later searched based on allegations that he had a stash of arms there. Both allegations against the lawmaker have yet to be proven by a police investigation or in a court of law.Two Liberian women from the opposition, who aspired for legislative office, were nearly mobbed to death during their respective campaigns by actors loyal to the ruling party, while the police, in their riot regalia, stood by and watched. It took other civilians who risked their lives to get these women to safety. Since these two incidents, the police and the Justice Ministry have maintained a deafening silence on the investigations.We have also seen the emoluments of a tenured Liberian diplomat withheld by the Government of Liberia, to the detriment of the country’s image and status in a major economic sector — Maritime, where Liberia is a global leader. Earlier, another tenured official was removed from his office by a new presidential appointee and two armed policemen.All of this has happened under the watch of the current Administration and, in some cases, with the acquiescence of this President and this Justice Minister.It is not optional for the Ministry of Justice to ensure the safety of citizens and the general public. It is a mandate. Therefore, the Minister should realize that he would also be acting illegally by refusing to provide protection for citizens exercising their constitutional rights.There is a need for a logistical meeting with the CoP to ensure that the public safety remains paramount. Such earlier overtures between the MoJ, the protest organizers, with assistance from ECOWAS, the AU and the UN resident representatives in Liberia, were the reasons why the June 7 protest turned out so remarkably peacefully that even the Liberia National Police were highly commended for their patriotism and professionalism on that day.It was Alexander Pope who wrote: “A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep, or taste not of the Pierian spring…”Far be it from me to insinuate that the Minister, who is also a very seasoned Counselor-at-law, would be so shallowly versed in law of the land! It is not the depth of his knowledge of the law that I question, but the adequacy of his argument to inform the powers (i.e. government) that depend on it during these critical moments in the country’s political history. And that, Mr. Minister, is equally dangerous.If the Justice Minister is not careful, he risks nurturing and entrenching a dictatorship that will require more than an election to remove.The author:Bai Sama G.

The huge crowd at the Donegal ETB Further Education and Training Fair 2015 in the Mount Errigal on Thursday. Photo- Clive WassonThey may have been occupying comfortable seats on the stage at the Employers Panel discussion organised by Donegal ETB but these were no armchair generals handing out advice without having first stepped onto the minefield that is the careers market.Four of the county’s brightest and most energetic business people – each of them boasting leading positions in top ranked companies and educational portfolios to match.Each provided the platform for an open debate on a range of inside information on what employers are looking for when they take on new staff and detailing how key training resources are when it comes to finding work. That range of knowledge and experience transformed itself into a morning of positive thinking for the large attendance of students and job seekers who carried it into the further education and training fair which followed the panel discussion in the Mount Errigal Hotel.Dearbhla Kelly, ETB with guestsPadraig Monaghan, Managing Director, UnitedHealth Group, Catherine Monahan, Human Resources Lough Eske Castle, Declan McBrearty, General Manager, KER Group and Declan Thomas Industrial Relations and Human Resources Executive at the Donegal ETB Further Education and Training Fair 2015 in the Mount Errigal on Thursday. Photo- Clive Wasson“Donegal people are the best workers in the world bar none,” Managing Director and Vice-President Government Claims Operations at United Health Group, Padraig Monaghan, insisted, a viewpoint that injected further confidence into the collective mindset.He was accompanied on stage by Catherine Monahan, Human Resources Manager at Lough Eske Hotel; Declan McBrearty, General Manager with the Killybegs based KER Group; and Declan Thomas, Industrial Relations and Human Resources Executive with IBEC North West in Donegal Town.Thursday’s event was chaired by Dearbhla Kelly, Guidance Counsellor with Donegal ETB while in an introductory address, Shaun Purcell, Chief Executive, Donegal ETB, spoke of the quality of training that was available and the benefits of being based in Donegal including quality of life and the cost of living factor. “Further education is really important,”he maintained. “Education is not just about learning, it’s also about personal fulfilment.”He reflected on the story of the job applicant who forwarded his C.V. in a shoebox as he wanted to “get a foot in the door”.Ronan Crehan and Donal McFadden at the Donegal ETB Further Education and Training Fair 2015 in the Mount Errigal on Thursday. Photo- Clive WassonGetting a foot in the door was precisely what the four main speakers were about and the subsequent discussion was laced with accounts of their own advances into the job market and encouraging advice on how those looking for employment can shoehorn themselves into jobs.Declan Thomas, who is also a qualified solicitor, said there were many good companies located in the North-West who were expanding year on year. He advised job seekers to do some homework on the companies in their area and highlighted the sustainable jobs that were available in the various sectors including healthcare, hospitality and retail.Catherine Monahan said when Lough Eske Castle had opened in 2007, it initially boasted sixty employees. This figure currently stands at 160 and will rise to 190 over the next few months. “There are great opportunities for advancement and promotion,” the Human Resources Manager revealed.Padraig Monaghan, who has been Senior Vice-President, Government Claims Operations since October 2012, and has teams located in Ireland, America and India, disclosed that between 70 and 80% of their staff were non-I.T. And half of those had no formal third level education at all. “It’s not all about high-tech,” he pointed out.Declan McBearty joined the KER Group – the company specializes in a range of engineering services to the offshore industry – after finishing secondary school in 1999, having gained his apprenticeship in electrical trading. His message to the attendance was that they were never too old to do an apprenticeship, citing a KER employee who had registered as an apprentice just before his 30th birthday.Further advice followed from the panelists – the importance of customer service skills, communication and interpersonal skills, undertaking computer courses, never viewing a task as being beneath you, employing a proper attitude, and boasting a sound knowledge of the company you are applying to join. The issue of age arose again but as Ms Monahan insisted: “It does not matter what age you are if you have the right attitude.”The question of the JobBridge programme, which has come in for some criticism, was posed by the chairperson with the UnitedHealth Group representative, Mr Monaghan revealing that his company did not avail of this particular scheme as they preferred to create permanent employment.”That is the local choice we have made but I believe JobBridge has had a lot of negative press which is unwarranted.”The positive progressions of the quartet of companies involved were mirrored in the story of the KER Group which is about to open new premises in Killybegs. Its General Manager pointed back to the recessionary days of 2011 when staff had to be let go and when they were forced to implement a plan for survival. Four years on they were now focusing on a plan for growth.All of the speakers highlighted the main benefit Donegal had when it came to attracting industry and visitors to the county. “People come to our hotel from all over the world and it’s the people they talk about,” the Lough Eske Castle representative stressed.In his closing remarks, Declan Thomas pointed out that education was key and declared that employees were keen to see that job seekers had invested in themselves.Reflecting on the panel discussion and the Training Fair, Sean Debney, Adult Guidance Coordinator, described it as “excellent”.“All of the questions posed were very relevant and the advice was very practical. We’re very happy with the turnout from students and the general public,” he added.*****************************************************************VIEW FROM THE STANDSSusan Morgan, representing St Mary’s University College in Belfast, expressed “surprise” at the number of mature adults attending the fair. “It’s not something I’ve encountered at other fairs that I’ve been at. Normally, those attending these fairs would be in the younger age bracket but here, there’s a great diversity and a huge range of people which is very interesting.”She added: “We have a few every year from Donegal at our college and we’ve had a few enquiries here again today. One man who had been in the construction industry for twenty years was one of those expressing an interest. He wasn’t old enough to retire and said he needed to rethink where he was going.”Marketing Officer with the Letterkenny I.T., Nicola Dunnion, revealed a lot of enquiries concerning both full-time and part-time courses.“We’ve had great feedback here at the LYIT stand – the fair offers a great opportunity to showcase what we can offer and also what the county can offer in terms of further education and training options.”The ETB stands were also extremely busy throughout the day. “People are looking for a down to earth approach and that’s what we offer here.“This lets them see the range of courses that is available. It’s important that the right people are involved in the right programmes and that’s what we are here to help them with,” pointed out ETB representative Chris McGee.The Regional Employment Service, based at the Congress Resource Centre on Letterkenny’s Pearse Road, offers a range of services and advice on helping people to securing work.“We can also offer advice on C.V.’s and interview techniques and the like. We’ve had quite a few enquiries today asking about training courses that are available,” indicated Helen Clarke, Project Officer with the R.E.S. “People know what they want and are quite specific.”Close by, the Congress Resource Centre stand, has also been receiving enquiries “mostly about courses” as Anne Marie Carroll discloses. “Most of the people I have spoken to are quite positive which is very encouraging,” she stated.At the stand for the Gartan Outdoor Education and Training Centre, Sean McCrudden said there had been a “good reaction” to what they had to offer. “There has been quite a lot of interest with a lot of people asking about part-time courses.”The Centre, he revealed, offered a 44 week course on a five day a week basis. “It has generated a good deal of interest,” he added.********************************************************FROM A CABINET MAKER TO A DEGREE IN PSYCHOLOGYFrom the craft of cabinet-maker to a degree in psychology – not a journey many will have undertaken in the leap from career to further education.But Gweedore man, Dominic Boner, has done precisely that – and is not finished yet as he trawls through the variety of options available at the Donegal ETB Further Education and Training Fair.“I worked as a cabinet-maker but then that work dried up somewhat. And then I changed track completely,” he laughs.A one-year access course got him into the psychology degree course at Magee College in Derry. “It was just an idea I had and something I decided I wanted to try. “At 54 years of age, he considers his educational pursuits will bring him down a few more avenues. “I’m planning to do a range of courses and the Training Fair is giving me a lot of good insights into what’s available.“It’s always something to fall back on if things don’t pick up again in the cabinet-making industry,” says Dominic.****************************************************************************A TRUE GROWTH INDUSTRYConor Gallinagh knows more than most the value of growing into a career. His family run the well known Finn Valley Nursery Garden Centre in Stranorlar where he has spent many a hard-working day tending to the needs of a large customer base.“I grew up with it having been involved from knee-high and it was always something that interested me.”He is currently undertaking an honours degree course in Horticulture at U.C.D. and to this end is spending a six weeks work placement with the body, Teagasc providing integrated courses in his native county. “It’s a very intense course, very science based for the first two years.”As part of his placement, Conor is helping to man the Teagasc stand at the ETB fair and is in the perfect position to point patrons in the right direction.“There are very diverse career options out there in the horticulture industry. A lot of work out there,” he insists.Local Education Officer with Teagasc, Art McGrath, says the demand for agriculture courses has never been greater. Part of the reason for this he puts down to the new CAP regime which stipulates training schemes for those involved in the industry.“We’ve been busy enough here today. For instance we took along eighty brochures to give out and all of them are gone at this stage,” he points out.**********************************************************************HOW THE STUDENTS VIEWED IT…Both Danielle Grant from Ballybofey and Shannon Meehan from Letterkenny were impressed with the information they had received.“At every stand, they were willing to talk through everything with you which was very helpful. It’s certainly given me food for thought,” said Danielle.Shannon agreed. “They couldn’t have been more helpful. But I’ve a lot of reading to do now,” she smiled, as she carried out a handful of brochures and booklets from the fair.Katie O’Rourke echoed the viewpoint. “It’s an excellent event, very well attended and very well run. The range of providers is very impressive and there’s a lot of information available.“ETB has done a fantastic job in organising this,” she declared.NEWS FOCUS: DONEGAL WORKERS ARE BEST IN THE WORLD, ETB JOBS FAIR TOLD was last modified: April 2nd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalETBjobstraining

USL Results & Reports 13.08.13Fanad Utd. 4Swilly Rovers 3 After a long delay to the start of the match due to a referee’s mix-up the fans that hung around for this game were not to be disappointed with goals galore. The first half was a close enough encountered but Fanad led 2-0 at half time mainly due to the fact that they took their chances while Swilly failed to. Brian McVeigh scored a wonderful free kick on 35 minutes to put Fanad one up and this was soon followed by a second as Conor Mathewson played a ball over the top for Aiden Sweeney to run onto and rounded the keeper and finish coolly into an empty net. Half time 2-0. The second half burst into life as within 10 minutes of the restart the ever-lively David Edwards finished from close range following a scramble in the box. But Swilly went straight up the pitch from the restart to get one back through Laurence Toland who finished following a mix up in the home sides defense. Swilly soon found themselves right back in the game as Blain Curtis got a quick second for them. However Fanad seemed to kill the game soon after as Kyle Burke scored with his first touch of the game, finished off a move involving Mathewson, Edwards and Hassett. Swilly however fought back again and Liam O’Donnell was on hand to finish at the back post following a cross from the right. The game was looking like it was destined to end in a draw and Swilly almost got the equalizer in the last minute as Fanad gave away an indirect free kick inside the penalty box but the home defense managed to see it out to the end to win 4-3. Another result for this young Fanad side that started the game with a team of an average age of seventeen and a half years of age and finished it with a team of an average of just seventeen which goes to show you can win games with youth.Best of the visitors were L. Toland and J. Toland with McVeigh, Hassett and Edwards tireless for Fanad who also had a colossal game from Ryan McGonigle at the centre of the home sides defense.Fanad Utd.: S. Daffan, M.

The Tigers struck twice inside the opening 25 minutes, but couldn’t put the game beyond Rovers’ reach. They might have been left to rue a series of missed opportunities with Rovers given a lifeline when Darren McElwaine netted a 64th minute penalty, but the hosts couldn’t find a second way through despite strong late pressure. Kildrum got a golden start when Cassidy’s teasing free kick from the right flank was headed home by Porter in the third minute. Roles reversed when Porter turned provider for their second on 25 minutes. His diagonal ball over the top played in Cassidy and he drilled a fine effort across Jason Quinn and into the far corner. New signing Kevin Barr, Barry O’Donnell and Paddy McLaughlin all had chances for Kildrum, but Maurice Toland’s side couldn’t kill the tie off. Rovers weren’t without chances, but were restricted to half-openings in the first period, the best chance falling to McElwaine whose first-time effort was saved by Michael Lynch’s legs. Neil Lloyd hit the post early in the second half, but the ex-Finn Harps man had to leave the action early after landing heavily in the 67th minute. That meant that Kildrum played the final 23 minutes with ten men. Three minutes earlier, Rovers had got a way back into it when McElwaine drilled home a penalty won by Oisin McMenamin. Rovers sensed a way back in, but despite having a series of set pieces in advanced positions they couldn’t breach Lynch a second time.Letterkenny Rovers: Quinn; K.Gorman, Minnock, Kelly, O’Donnell; McMacken, Malseed, Neeson, McGrath; McMenamin, McElwaine.

TESCO Homegrown All Ireland Club Finals Launch. Croke Park, Dublin. Picture credit: Barry Cregg / SPORTSFILETERMON’S Geraldine McLaughlin was her club’s representative at Croke Park as the TESCO Homegrown All Ireland Club Championship Finals were launched.The captain’s of all six competing clubs assembled in Dublin where they came face to face for the first time before meeting on the football field this weekend. The TESCO Homegrown Senior club Championship Final will take place on Sunday at 2pm in Tuam Stadium, County Galway with deferred coverage being shown on TG4. Termon face Mourneabbey from Cork – and both feature in the final for the first time in their history.Both sides have come through some very tough encounters to reach this stage as Termon knocked out the 2012 champions, Donaghmoyne in the Ulster final and defeated the much fancied Kilkerrin Clonberne side in their semi final.Mourneabbey accounted for The Banner in the Munster final and overcame Parnell’s of London in a tricky quarter final before a dramatic win over Mountmellick Sarsfields in their semi final.Mourneabbey are backboned by the four O’Sullivan sisters including Ciara O’Sullivan who recently claimed her second All Star Award and her sister Doireann who is another of the Cork senior panelists. Termon will rely very much on Geraldine McLaoughlin who has been in sensational form this year providing the vast majority of their scores.The TESCO Homegrown Intermediate Club Championship Final will see Clonbur from Galway travel to Corrofin in Clare on Saturday where they will meet Castleisland Desmond’s from Kerry. Clonbur have been in great form and have the experienced Lorna Joyce who will spearhead their attack. Castleisland have plenty of experience on their side in the form of Kerry senior players Cáit Lynch, Aoife Lyons and Lorraine Scanlon.In the TESCO Homegrown Junior Club Final Murroe Boher from Limerick will meet St. Ciaran’s of Roscommon at Ballinasloe on Saturday at 1:30pm.Speaking about the TESCO Homegrown All Ireland Club Championship Finals LGFA President Pat Quill said ‘The TESCO Homegrown All Ireland Club Championships consistently produce the best matches of the year and certainly this year has been an exceptional one to date across all three grades. Winning with your county is something special but winning with your friends at club level is one of the greatest feelings that any player can have, I would like to wish all six clubs the very best of luck this weekend.”Saturday, 29th November 2014 TESCO Homegrown All Ireland Intermediate Club Championship FinalCastleisland Desmonds (Kerry) v Clonbur (Galway) Corrofin Co.

Evolutionists are at a loss to explain why belief in God makes people happy.Secular scientists typically relegate religion to natural selection, making up stories about how it provided survival value somehow. Live Science, for instance, reproduced an op-ed from The Conversation, “Did angry gods drive humanity’s expansion?” The expected answer to the rhetorical question is, well yes. “Our team of anthropologists and psychologists decided to experimentally investigate how beliefs in gods – specifically those who care about how we treat each other and punish us for immoral behavior – may have contributed to more widespread cooperation.” It goes without saying that “beliefs in gods” are just that—beliefs, according to the worldview of author Benjamin Purzycki, a human evolutionist at the University of British Columbia.Well, if Purzycki really believes that, maybe he should get right with God so that he can see more cooperation. The fact is, psychologists continue to find that theism is healthy, as long as it is the kind of theism that sees a just God who watches our actions. Watch what Science Daily says about Purcycki’s research. Who wouldn’t want the fruits of a theistic outlook?“Certain kinds of beliefs — involving gods who are aware of human interactions and punish for moral transgressions — can indeed contribute to the evolution of human co-operation,” said lead author Benjamin Purzycki, a postdoctoral research fellow at UBC’s Centre for Human Evolution, Cognition and Culture.“If you think you’re being watched, and expect to be divinely punished for being too greedy or thieving, you might be less inclined to engage in anti-social behavior towards a wider range of people who share those beliefs.”Notice the criteria there; not just any god will do. It needs to be one who dislikes greed and theft. There are “gods” who reward that kind of unrighteousness. That won’t do. The deity must not only be omniscient, but good. He must care about how we treat one another.Results show that believers in all-knowing gods who punish for wrongdoing are more likely to behave fairly towards anonymous, distant “co-religionists” — those who share beliefs about gods and rituals, but may not belong to the same religious organization.Now we see that fairness is another moral quality that the deity must reward. And fairness must extend to those of other groups. The Parable of the Good Samaritan comes to mind.When people act this way, the study suggests, they are engaging in behaviour that can support key features of modern-day societies — such as large, co-operative institutions, trade, markets and partnerships.“Religious beliefs may have been one of the major contributing factors in the development and stability of highly complex social organizations, such as states,” said Purzycki.Without doubt, Purzycki ascribes this to natural selection. He is, after all, a research fellow on human evolution. But since the fruit is so good – social stability, cooperation, trade, markets, partnerships, and a just society that looks down on theft and greed – why wouldn’t every evolutionist wish to promote theism? That would seem to promote the evolutionary fitness of the community.But wait—there’s more. PhysOrg reports that “Americans who see God as ‘a secure base’ tend to be more committed, satisfied on the job.” Someone like Purzycki might describe this belief as a comforting myth, an opiate for the masses as Karl Marx put it. The point is that it works. Not only do you get a stable, cooperative society with theism; you get job satisfaction, too! What evolutionary anthropologist wouldn’t crave that? There’s a hidden subtext that the converse is also true. Disbelieving in God might produce the opposite results.What is it that he wants, anyway? The truth? Better an inconvenient truth than a comfortable myth, he might respond. People need to know about natural selection! Then they can rise above their myths, and enjoy the fruits of an enlightened, scientific worldview.And what might those fruits be? We can find the fruits of evolutionary non-theism in the 20th century, Darwin’s century: eugenics, wars for survival of the fittest, communism, fascism, gulags, genocide. For his own safety, Purzycki should rush to promote theism for all his fellow organisms, even if he doesn’t believe it himself. Better a comfortable myth than death in prison camps!If Purzycki takes that approach, it’s likely he will have a twinge of conscience. He would be promoting something he doesn’t believe is true. This could cause a severe moral conflict in his inner being, one in which he might feel punishment would be just. Is he being greedy? Is he stealing someone else’s goodness? Is he a liar?One solution would be to repent and believe in theism himself. Then, he could enjoy all the benefits honestly. It would have to be the right theism, one that believes in God’s omniscience and righteousness. That would rule out religions that think their “god” is OK with rape, genocide and bombings. It would rule out religions that say the world is just an illusion, and that a man’s duty is to drop out mentally (that would end his scientific pursuits). It would rule out religions that keep a man in the dark about whether he is good enough or has done enough to avoid punishment. That would eliminate all the ritualistic religions or systems of salvation by works.By this time, his guilt might be so strong he would cry out for a merciful God. Searching hard through the options, he might find one theistic system that offers a unique concept that would satisfy everything he’s looking for: a five-letter word spelled G-R-A-C-E.Evolutionists, accept Christ for your own good. Your own theory’s assumptions demand it. Just don’t be a hypocrite about it. (Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
