Personally, I was very busy before placing my faith in Jesus. What with judging others from a heart of consemnation...it was a lot of work! Thank God Jesus took that load off. Smile

I like Thomas Paine, and have read Common Sense. He began The Age of Reason by mentioning the dispossession of the clergy in Revolutionary France. Yeah, he could hit pretty hard with the darts in his pamphlets. Arrested in Paris in 1793 at the height of the Terror, I think he lucked out in getting released the following year, not mounting the scaffold to the guillotine. Seems Robespierre’s head dropped into the bucket instead.

The world and its endless designs does take one’s contemplation away from the gentle Holy Ghost, descending like a dove to offer us its love. Such a hypercompetitive, frictional, judgmental world where no perceived slight is forgiven, in 30 CE or today. I’m glad the Christ preached against that spirit.

In order to love God you must love His Word. Not loving the words of His book is a sure sign you don’t love God.

Recipe for homemade ricin:

1. mix a teaspoon of lye with 2 ounces of hot water in a jar 2. put 2 ounces of castor beans into the cooled down lye/water mix 3. let the beans soak for an hour 4. pour out the liquid 5. rinse off the beans with cool water 6. remove the outer husks of the beans with tweezers 7. blend together 4 ounces of acetone for each ounce of bean pulp 8. place the pulp/acetone in an airtight jar 9. allow the pulp/acetone to settle for 3 days 10. shake-up the mix in the jar after it's been settled for 3 days 11. pour the mixture into a coffee filter 12. discard the liquid 13. squeeze out the acetone as much as possible without losing any of the bean pulp 14. spread out the filter on a pan covered with newspaper and let it stand dry 15. repeat steps 8 to 14 until a nice dry powder is obtained

This site must shutdown or terrorists could get information here on how to produce homemade ricin!
