many likes Blondie. also:
par. 2 --- the Bible is an item rightly sold by Cosco under the "Fiction" category of books.
par. 6 proud god, let the victim be damned, deal only with the attitude of the criminal through counseling. A lot like the elder's attitude: rather than working on prevention, dithering and damage control later.
par. 7 expecting flak here: The races, nations are, each in their own way for their own reasons, superior in some aspects to others. Nothing wrong with that. vivre la difference. Strut your stuff.
par. 12 : obfuscation, deliberate or lack of understanding? "-- material possessions are the "KEY"to success" ?? imho, Material possession might be the RESULT of success in your chosen endeavour, but the key? opening the door to--?
par. 15 "--struggle with "temptation"--" hormones are normal
par 16: What scripture would Jesus have quoted if he would have ever been tempted sexually? " get behind me satan!"? sorry for the anachronism, off colour flavour. but seriously, ------why is that possibility not in the narrative? an a-sexual perfect man? like the 144k in Rev 14, virgins until the heavenly marriage;-- soon?
par. 17 Satan will make a final attempt only? Rev. reads that he will succeed with the nations in the four corners (still flat) earth, nations that perhaps still think proudly as the wt / bible story goes.
glad that this smoke will not rise forever.
