Hi Kenny,

I’m glad you are learning from iswasandwillbe. com.

As you probably know we are told plainly that we are all beasts:

Ecc 3:18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

To acknowledge this truth is to admit that we are not immortal spirits. To acknowledge this truth is to deny that God is tri- une. And when we do acknowledge God’s sovereign hand in the lives of every man who has ever lived we dethrone that beast, that man of sin, and to set Christ up as the ruler of our hearts and minds. The man of sin will not give up his throne in our lives without a giant struggle. So “be ready always to give an answer to him that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you,” but be sure that a question is asked before you place the pearl of great price before the hooves of spiritual swine. They will take any opportunity to turn and rend you.

1Pe 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

I think you are probably already aware of this admonition, but it seems appropriate to remind you of it if your mother- in- law is a J. W. It is very rare for a J. W., like you once were, to ever come to where you are. That takes a miracle from God to open blinded eyes. So be thankful for your blessings and be ready to “give an answer” to those who God will send to you with a question.
