    46. Christians are to be taught that unless they have more than they need, they are bound to keep back what is necessary for their own families, and by no means to squander it on pardons.

  2. Jadai Bergolla Echevarría Alonso is an emerging fiction writer and personal essayist whose topics of interest include Latinx-American rights, the Latinx diaspora, feminism, human rights, and diversity in media. She is left-handed and really wants the world to know that left-handed scissors are a damn joke. She also spiritually identifies with Oscar Isaac's mustache.

  3. Exodus 5:3

    So they said, “The God of the Hebrews has met with us. Please, let us go three days’ journey into the desert and offer skin to the Lord our God, lest He fall upon us with pestilence or with the sword.”

    Exodus 8:25

    Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, “Go, give skin to your God in the land.”

  4. When my family and I light joss sticks, prepare food offerings, and burn paper gifts (mostly replicas of clothes, houses, and cars) for our ancestors in return for blessings such as wealth and good health, it has always seemed to me that what we do approaches worship not so much as it does a highly pragmatic, reciprocal relationship tempered by remembered bonds of love and affection.

  7. 32. They will be condemned eternally, together with their teachers, who believe themselves sure of their salvation because they have letters of pardon.

    16. Hell, purgatory, and heaven seem to differ as do despair, almost-despair, and the assurance of safety.

    Sometimes I too have been able to distinguish between despair and almost-despair!!! One is slightly more bearable!

  10. Exodus 32:31-32

    Then Moses returned to the Lord and said, “Oh, these people have committed a great sin, and have made for themselves a god of gold! Yet now, their sin was a joke. Jesus. They were kidding – but if not, I pray, blot me out of Your book which You have written.”

  11. The following propositions will be discussed at Wittenberg, under the presidency of the Reverend Father Martin Luther, Lecturer in Ordinary at that place. Wherefore he requests that those who are unable to be present and debate orally with us, may do so by letter.

    Man loves the truth, wants to talk about it with dudes who can't be in Wittenberg at the time. Got it. Solid.

  13. Growing up is just a cumulative series of realizations that don’t stop until your brain does. I realized I was an atheist when I was fourteen. I realized I was asexual when I was nineteen. And I only started to realize the connections between the two when I was 28.

  14. Genesis 13:13

    "Now the people of Sodom were wicked, real posers against the Lord."

    Psalm 26:9-10

    "Do not sweep me away with posers,
    nor my life with the conformists,
    those in whose hands are evil devices,
    and whose right hands are full of bribes."

    Proverbs 1:10

    "My child, if posers entice you, do not consent."

  15. If you are a current or recovering Person Who Observes Lent In Some Fashion, feel free to weigh my sacrifices in the balance and find them wanting. If you feel like it, tell us the weirdest/hardest/dumbest thing you ever tried to quit (for any reason, not necessarily religious) and we can revel in our successes and failures together.
