    I’m in the same position and this post really helped me. Sometimes we feel discouraged because it seams like nothing will ever change, but He hears and He has all under control!

    I, too, had read that piece of Jeremy’s on the Sunday Times. I was so struck by it that I actually cut it up and found it just now. In fact I was trying to find out the latest news on Jeremy Clarke as I used to read him quite regularly. As for your dad,etc. it’s great of you to pray but Pope Francis recently said that even non believers can go to Heaven. If he led a good life God will bless him.

    Hi Carmen

    Thanks for commenting! I love my dad and he’s a really good man. But I don’t think he – or anyone – is good enough to get to heaven on his own merit. In Matthew 9:12-13 Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick…For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” He forgives even sinner who cries out to Him for mercy, but if we don’t cry out, we stay in our sin and separated from Him. There’s a great sermon excerpt on this issue
