Examples of Jesus in a Sentence

  1. Joe Lazzerini:

    Jesus never said a word about homosexuality, about Pride, or the Queer community, rhode Island Pride respectfully calls on Roman Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin to do some self-reflection as the majority of Catholic Rhode Islanders in this state reject the idea that to be Roman Catholic is to be complicit to intolerance, bigotry, and fear.

  2. P. Douglas Small:

    When we go to our secret place, God races there ahead of us. Sometimes He doesn't even disclose His presence. Jesus notes, He that sees in secret will reward openly. God hides in our prayer closet and then manifests Himself in the public square. The private moments of surrender translate into public God-moments punctuated with His Presence.

  3. Robert Morris:

    Billy Graham was one of the most faithful followers of Jesus. Billy Graham made a huge impact in my life, and even led my wife, Debbie, to the Lord, this world will miss Billy Graham, but we celebrate that Billy Graham is now with the One Billy Graham loved so much.

  4. Top Egyptian businessman Naguib Sawiris:

  5. Reggy McDaniel:

    Wow, what a horrible message. How about we build a wall around your store ? Only supported because you are a small business but since you are political and on the wrong side of your customers... You got ta be dumbest most out if touch owners on earth... A few people, however, did express their support for the business and its right to free speech. Looks like I need to start shopping at Macs. He has my support. Freedom of speech people. Stand strong !! Wish I lived closer I would absolutely shop there ! God bless the USA !! FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOK FOR MORE FOX LIFESTYLE NEWS Macs Fresh Market owner, Reggy McDaniel, told KALB the message was meant to share Fresh Market owner faith with others. If I used a political message, and Im very aware its political, to highlight Jesus Christ, then Im guilty of it, thats my meaning of the whole thing is are people prepared to go to heaven or are they not. I thought it was a perfect time because everybody is talking about the border, some people want it, some dont want us to have one. The only thing I was shocked about was that its racist. I have never in my life been accused of being a racist, Im 70 years old ; I havent evolved into one.
