Whats the 7th sentence, on page 49, of the closest book to you? Grab the closest book to you... dont grab something to try to make yourself look... however it it you wish others to perceive you... Grab the closest book hard or digital copy... "The Adversarial contest between Jesus and Lucifer that had its genesis in the First Estate was once continued down here in a desert battle [Matthew 4:1]; with that inflated bag of hot air -- Lucifer -- claiming the lead role and challenging prominent Personages, nothing changes on this stage either, because the bouts that Lucifer's imps and Jesus once exchanged as Adversaries are now being handed down to us all as Lucifer's imps throw one good Tort drubbing after another at us, with many folks having no sensitivity even to the existence of the drubbings or their origin." - Invisible Contracts, Mercier
