When you plant a seed in a garden, do you make that seed grow? No. God makes it grow, you can water it, pull the weeds from it, but you do not make it grow. The same goes with Gods word. Words of truth some people just refuse to except, they would rather hear philosophy, to make them feel good, and be politicaly correct instead of the natural order that God has set forth. Like the courts letting someone that rapes and kills little children plea bargin for a lesser sentence, when they dont take in to concideration that that child didnt have the choice to plea bargin. That is why our jails and prisons are so overcrouded. If a person is convicted red handed, they should let the next of kin cast the first stone and these things would cease to happen. This is right in any religion. Just my point of view and the God that I serve, your god may think you should give them a second chance, but ive seen it happen over and over, that those that are given a second chance tend to kill again.
