"For God so loved the world..."

I defy you to watch this video and not cry. Praise God for His love and mercy.

Great post, but a couple in-accuracies.

In real life, not all the train occupants are rescued. Well, there are only if you put all the elect on a train, lol.

On a more serious note, amid the anguish surely felt by the Father as He slaughtered His Son, we need not forget that His love for His people was go great, that it "pleased the Father to crush Him", Isaiah 53:10.

Hey Richard

Yeah, I thought about that too with regards to election. The way I settled it in my mind is that all those on the train were elect. Of course, I realize you were being funny.

I cried when I saw this video. I simply cannot imagine being willing to let one of my children die so that others could be saved much less killing them. God is so merciful and loving. It is beyond my comprehension.

Thanks for stopping by.
