To: The Other Harry
Well, life is tough all over and to quote someone before me, "It ain't fair."

The sooner you realize that you're not the only one with problems, and that the only one who cares enough to really help you is God, then the sooner you'll be on the road to true freedom. Does everything become sweetness and light after you turn your life over to Him? Absolutely not. But the alternative is to punish yourself day in and day out like the friend of yours who drank herself to death.

And so what if someone is born with a propensity to lean more toward one temptation than another? The choice of whether they will encourage that desire rests with them and them alone. The great thing is that Jesus Christ voiced some earth shattering promises. The one that comes to mind right now is:

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30

He dearly loves us and wants us to be with Him for all eternity. All we have to do is accept the free gift of salvation that He offers. Only His sacrifice is sufficient to wash us clean from all sin.

Libertarians don't support the troops and want open borders. Next question.
