It didn’t take but a few hours to dry outside in the BLAZING HEAT!!

John 3:17

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

John 3:19
This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
