The Perfect Relationship
Restoring the Perfect Relationship
There is a GOD, creator of all things — living and nonliving.
"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them." GENESIS 1:27
"Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. JOHN 1:3
In the beginning all things created were in perfect relationship with GOD'S way.

"God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning-- the sixth day." GENESIS 1:31

He has given the way.
"Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. 5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed." ISAIAH 53:4
"I will make your battlements of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious stones." ISAIAH 54:12 READ MORE

DEUTERONOMY 30:15
