His lord said to him, "Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord."

In your September issue, Giving Birth, on pg52 the verse: 1 Timothy 2:15, they changed the verse and did not put the correct verse as in the bible, they said: "But women will be saved through childbearing, assuming they continue to live in faith..."
 
But in the bible the verse is saying: nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith...."
 
This verse refers to the mother, the mother will be saved, so while she is busy upbringing her children and not spending enough time with God as she wish, our God is full of grace, he will look at her childrens faith and if she brought them up in good faith, in love and in holiness, with self-control, the mother will be saved, even when she didn't spend much time with God, she taught her kids well, and thus spending time teaching kids in the whole truth, she is actually spending time doing God's work, amen.
 
This is what the verse is all about, it has nothing to do with the actual labour of the child.
 
Regards, love your magazines, I have every single copy from your first edition of Joy and Juig!!!!
