  1. do you have a printable version of this one too please?

  2. I would like to say to the people of France that we all need to have a better economy but this can only come by getting our sin debt before our Creator,God,taken care of.This can only be done through repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.He was born of a virgin,lived a sinless life,and died for our sins on the cross 2000 years ago,he was buried,and rose from the dead,and was seen of men,and went back up to heaven. His sinless blood was the only atonement for our sins God will accept.Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved,and thy house.(Acts 16:31).He came to pay our spiritual debt for our sins.Ask him today to forgive your sins and save your soul from hell and give you his gift of eternal life both now and in heaven someday,and he will! From the Authorized King James Holy Bible of 1611,the preserved word of God,in English.For furthur information, ,or www.TheGospelHour.Org ,Thank You,very much,Sincerely;
