For ages, man felt afraid of the gods and their wrath.
Their manipulation and their fickleness, thinking that, in the end, the best they deserved was a trip across the River Styx on a boat bound for Hell.
And God revealed His plan for man.
A pardon, a commutation, an alliance, if a man (or woman!) would repent their rebellion and swear allegiance to Him.
I am and will be eternally grateful.
Thank You Jesus.
I think I'll got to church and join with others in thanking Him.
