Swim in the ocean as a deep sea diver try to get to the bottom of that ocean. Once you see you accept you good and bad smile and find you! You will see your reflection, you smile it's so nice... The deep ocean was once dark now it lights up....the ocean is big and you have found oneself first. Once you found you and accept oneself take that good and help others for the bad is gone! God is there talk to him brothers talk and smile!!!! Love for mankind!

The devil he is a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him he lies to people to make us give up hope in are creator, God doesn't turn his back on people he's not like that, the devil want us to sale our souls to him so he can gain power and lead people to captivity in hell from the truth!
