Merely the echo of God

It is not man who determines what is sin and what is not, but God. When God, the Creator of heaven and earth calls out man in warning that if they continue to do that which He has condemned, or do not do what He as commanded they will certainly face eternal death — and…

Defensiveness = Red Flag
