"And the Lord God of their fathers sent warnings to them by His messengers..."

Christian Voice? Roman Catholicism?

Are you mistaken?

I fear to read it. I hope for your soul that my fears aren't realised.

I've now read the rest of this foul blog - and noted the picture which I didn't see before.
I tremble when I think what lies will be contained in that book.
And what do you mean "eh?" Just the depraved level I'd expect.

Jeremiah 40 2-3:
"The Lord your GOD has pronounced doom on this place.
Now the Lord has brought it and has done just as he said. Because you people have sinned against the LORD..."

Read it - and weep.

It appears there are many ways to go crazy, but there's only one way to stay sane : my punishing regime of baseball statistics, stock market index watching and the regular drinking of tea keeps me away from those cursed moonies and from tom cruise. Read the book, then ask me how. [Ten dollar downpayment required]
