https://youtu.be/q1YzkMsQ7jI Based on Matthew 26:14-30 “My time has come” Betrayed by a disciple. A confidante. A trusted and beloved friend. And for what? The price of a slave?

I am disgusted! I was reading something the other day which was, apparently about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, but it had clearly given in to the militant leftie atheist agenda, which is determined to airbrush Christianity out of our society.
