"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God." ~Romans 5:1-2
A simple statement made by a weird guy who's iconic fame can be contributed to the fact that he painted a picture of soup..
But... It's not a bad idea, really..
There are both good and bad attributes to everyone.. What if we just focused on the good?
I mean, if it's true that no one can make us angry unless we let them and no one can upset us unless we let them, then it must also be true that no one can make us like or dislike anyone.. That's also up to us isn't it?
Someone may not like you, but they can't make you not like them.. That's your decision right?
So,what if we all lived with the attitude- "I'm going to like you whether you like it or not"..
Can't hurt can it?

Bill Wiese saw the searing flames of hell, felt total isolation, and experienced the putrid and rotting stench, deafening screams of agony, terrorizing demons, and finally, the strong hand of God lifting him out of the pit.
"Tell them I am coming very, very soon!"
Wiese's visit to the devil's lair lasted just twenty-three minutes, but he returned with vivid details etched in his memory. Since this life-changing ordeal, he has spent the last seven years studying the Scriptures to find answers and has listed more than 150 Bible verses referencing hell.
Everyone is curious about the afterlife, and now Wiese shares his insights to commonly asked questions such as:

You get to love your pretense. It's true, we're locked in an image, an act - and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you're trying to steal their most precious possession.”
