I have to count on this, but we can not make mercy exempt from this equation. As a strong practicing Christian I always pray to God a prayer of thanksgiving that I was born into the Christian environment that I was. The idea of a god, especially "The God", is almost an overwhelming thought to the human mind. Therefore if a feeble human mind can pity and have mercy on this, I truly hope that God does also. I can not wait to enter the throne room of God and ask Him why he couldn't of made himself unquestionably known, so that people could make a more rational decision......God Bless!
