UNDERSTANDING THE “P” WORD – The Next Step

SPIRITUAL DNA

Last I checked, we humans would not be here continuing to replicate without DNA.  Without that DNA there would be no babies!  DNA has no value when it is not replicating new cells - new life.  I believe that is also true when it comes to our spiritual DNA - our...

TRUTH – DARK SUCKERS – AND THE FLAT EARTH THEORY
