I have no words to describe my feelings when a former Mafia boss is coming out to say that bad influences in these times are far worst than the ones he had while growing up.
No words to describe my feelings when he states that in his entire life he hasn't seen as much despair in people's minds and eyes as he sees right now.
When it comes to the point that he travels the world to talk about it, and say that the main reason why that is, is because of the breakup of the family, you realize we are at a tipping point. Yet he cameback to say that he really believes in God and that his faith is unbreakable at this point.
Everybody deserves forgiveness as long as they recognize God the Father and Jesus his son. But we will all have to carry with our judgement in this life; the afterlife is the gift of eternity only for those that comeback to God.
Hoplessness is the result of losing yoursefl to your selfishness and to your arrogance. When nothing that you do can take you out of a predicament you will feel it and he describes it as the worst feeling ever.
People may say that your success is the result of your efforts and not due to God's blessings. But this world is not of God but of the devil and as you know many that disgrace God seem to be "successful". So it really depends on how you measure success. Many live a "successful" life in abundance and yet they feel alone and empty, hens many lose their hope and take their lives, just take the example of Hollywood where the suicide rate is even higher than the transgender community.
To me, success is being a simple man knowing God, and talking about him to others. To me is living in peace as the days become darker. Family and friends may come and go, as death is a part of life, as they will ignore your words and mock them if they like, but what truelly brings hope and peace in our life is God the father and Jesus.
The Son of Man is the truth, and if you decide to neglect him he will neglect you and when judgement comes there will be no work that saves you from the Wrath of God.
