Lustful people should remember Judgment Day
To the editor:
It is a sad fact that today many business establishments are forced to much expense and frustration in trying to control the large amount of stealing that is taking place.
Stealing has become so widespread that even well-established nursing homes have become targets, with a number of residents becoming victims. I was a target of robbery in a nursing home. I am sorry to say the many aides I once loved and admired have fallen into the hands of lustful temptations. There is much goodness in everyone. Why let it be marred by evil?
Lest you forget, there will be a Judgment Day, and not a single person will be able to escape it, both the righteous and the unrighteous. I truly pray no one will be tempted to follow in the wrong path. A lost soul cannot ever be redeemed. Remember that if you can.
