We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

As a side note: preaching is not allowed here. Not everybody believes in the Bible.
As a side note: we have a rule about non-moderators accusing other posters of rule breaking here:
5. Etiquette In the interests of maintaining constructive and friendly discussions: 5i. Rule quoting: Do not quote the site rules to other members, if you believe the rules have been broken please hit the 'report' button.
The preaching rule is not intended to stop people quoting ANY religious text in an on topic, balanced discussion. It is there to prevent those that do not engage in discussion and simply post in an attempt at conversion of others.

We are not obligated to prove anything to the skeptic. I pray that they not rot in their ignorance.

He left the flock to find that one lost sheep.
I bear witness to God's truth in the Holy Bible. This is the parable describing what Jesus had done for me in my life:
Luke 15: 4-7 What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, `Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!` I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.
