I mean we must be: 70-88 children losses from Christian homes, rampaging and unchecked immorality, the gospel message about houses and cars, a civil government out of control and in my view, “causing Israel to sin,” and who knows what the Supreme Court will do today. (Edit: Supreme Court struck down DOMA. Hell rejoices.)
