Jesus is King
Jesus is King:
He that has ears let him hear. Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:21 “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” Whoever is born of God doesn't commit sin, because his seed remains in him; and he can't sin, because he is born of God. Mark 1:15 The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. 1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 14Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership can righteousness have with wickedness? Or what fellowship does light have with darkness? Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9Six days you shall labor and do all your work,10but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God, on which you must not do any work—neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant or livestock, nor the foreigner within your gates. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. Forgive all men so your heavenly Father will forgive you. Turn the other cheek don’t be offended lest satan get an advantage over you

Afkari opposed the Iranian Islamist government. This is a desperate tyrannical government's attempt to quell rising popular dissent.

You have to wonder how this got on the front page considering the news ambivalence to most of the goings on of the rest of the world. But then you realize it is just another stick in trumps eye and it all comes together.

I know that I can't change a thing about the world, especially since I'm a 15 year old who sucks at drawing, has 30 subscribers on YouTube, and can barely do Algebra, but people, this hate needs to stop. Please, stop spreading hate. It takes 10 seconds to change someones day. Just compliment them in some way, such as, "Hey, your hair looks really good today." "That shirt looks great on you." "You have a nice smile." You could make someones day in other ways, too. Take initiative, pay for someones meal in a drive through. Give someone a small gift. Make breakfast in bed for your significant other, give that homeless man a dollar or two. I know that most of you will cease to listen to me, but I can at least try to make the Earth a better place. If no-one has told you today, I love you. I know that every single one of you reading this is a good person, and you should be proud of yourself for that. Be better people, change the world one compliment at a time. <3

So executing someone who murdered a government worker is wrong? The death penalty is legal in the US as well. Unconscionable double standards.
