      Gail… only someone who does not know the Lord for themselves would make such a comment. We should hope and pray for those who are lost to be saved and for the restoration of those who are fallen. If a person believes in hell, then one can safely arrive at the conclusion they must believe in heaven also. To find joy and rejoice over the hope and possibility of a soul burning in hell is quite disturbing. Our Lord and Savior would never rejoice over a person dying in their sins; that’s why He says we are to seek Him while He can be found. I will pray for you. Remember, even the RIGHTEOUS are “scarcely” saved (1 Peter 4:18)…

    Must be more to this story that needs to be correctly orchestrated. Seems from August 5 to
    August 15, the “investigators” could frame some sort of Public Information Report/Response.
    Why was it hidden this long? Is this still Public Government?
