Very well said. AMEN
I agree ........that is why I don't give up on the lost ones; with hope that one day they awake from the dead and find out who they truly are.
You might not like the being they are now. But when they shine in harmony with eyes like a child exploring trying to have fun with everyone then it is very easy to love them again.
it never starts with the assumption that the prodigal is not the child of the father rather the prodigal only thought he was not worthy to be called so.
Prayer of Humble Access
We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under thy Table.
Most merciful God, we confess that we are by nature sinful and unclean. We have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done and by what we have left undone. We have not loved You with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We justly deserve Your present and eternal punishment.
You’ve heard it said that “We are all God’s children.” This rings flowery and nice. It’s an insidious lie.

If you don’t inquire further, you have everything to lose.
I am willing to lose everything. I don't want eternal life. I want to reincarnate, and if I can't do that, then give me annihilation.
You prefer annihilation over eternal life?
Can you explain why?
These types of phrases are used to round up the herd. If you look, you can find them everywhere ... in every walk of life.

Or are you?
LOL...Far from it, my dear. Far from it. But, I do know what things hurt kids....
"Jesus loves me when I'm good,
When I do the things I should,
Jesus loves me when I'm bad,
But it makes him very sad"
Little ones to him belong,—
They are weak, but he is strong.
Jesus loves me—loves me still,
Though I'm very weak and ill;
From his shining throne on high,
Comes to watch me where I lie.
Jesus loves me—he will stay,
Close beside me all the way.
Then his little child will take,
Up to heaven for his dear sake.
Now it is at this point where there is great division amongst believers and disbelievers because my spirit could FEEL the truth in her statements. To go into detail would be like trying to define Love or to prove that God is real and alive. This feeling is so strong and overwhelming you just know........like I said it is hard to describe. Those with the Holy Spirit inside them understand this feeling. Not saying you or others do not have the Holy Spirit with you.
