  4. They need to leave the man alone… But what can you expect from them? It is totally ingrained in their nature, their normal behavior is to persecute and persist in performing their type of “just us” can have it all, while the warm at heart, must fall… Busy will triumph behind this mess, stay strong soldier! Stay close to GOD and the wicked will have to relent and realize they are doomed.
