One nice thing about working way less…
I can drive to town and do the shopping whenever I feel like it!
It is such a gorgeous day here today!! And now that all the chores are done, I have the rest of the day & evening to get the rewrites done.
I thought this was interesting — the beginnings of getting all of the world’s artifacts back from the thieves at the Vatican??
From Biblical Archeological Society this morning:
“Vatican Returns Parthenon Marbles
The Parthenon Marbles are at the center of one of the most intriguing archaeological and legal debates of the past century. While Greece and England play the largest roles in this international drama, other actors have a part to play as well. This was on full display when the Vatican returned three large pieces of the Parthenon Marbles—which had been kept by the Holy See for over 200 years—to the Greek capital of Athens.[…]”
If you missed Phil’s live last night, it was very interesting. Although he is once again warning us that social media sites are going to be blacked out for a while — I hate to see that happen to Instagram, since it is the only thing I do every day that simply brings me joy. I’ve met a lot of really cool people, mostly writers, from all over the world through Instagram.
Regarding Phil’s quizzes last night — I got two answers wrong. I think, though, that the question about JFK’s assassination was sort of a trick question! I immediately answered “CIA” without looking at all the possible answers — the truth is that he didn’t die that day — he lived to be very old and died from (B) “Natural Causes.”
And then I got the answer wrong to the question about how large the bounty was for JFK Jr’s death. I way overestimated it!! I guess I value his life a lot…
But I got everything else right.
So according to Phil, the RV here in America will happen in May or June, and after that… tribunals.
It feels like the war is basically over, gang. It really does.
Here is the REPLAY, in case you missed it (1 hr 45 mins):
Regarding Phil’s emotional comments on executions…
I have never been emotionally comfortable supporting the idea of public executions. Although I agree with Phil on this one — what was done to the children goes beyond any crimes we can even imagine. (And then add to that — the bioweapon vaxes, the fake pandemic, HAARP creating environmental disasters, financial enslavement, human trafficking. The list goes on. Millions and millions of people have died, all things considered.)
Yet, after listening to Leo Tolstoy’s What I Believe last year, it gets harder and harder for my conscience to be “okay” with executions. Tolstoy goes into great detail about what Jesus really says regarding tribunals and any sort of “judgments” and executions — he unequivocally regarded these things as sins. And of course, Jesus himself was put before a “religious” tribunal (the Sanhedrin) and then executed.
it is emotionally difficult. But I don’t see how it can be any other way.
This is the section from the Book of Matthew (5:39-45) that Tolstoy goes into at great length. He uses the original Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic Bibles as his sources. His insights are almost unbearably thought-provoking. In KJV English translation:
39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
An incredible audio book. Very well read.
