 - The War on Energy is really a war on the poor. 
 
 - James 2:16

 - Favorite crafter of metaphors 
 
 - Code of the Woosters 
 
 - Joy Comes in the Morning 
 
15:40 Hamartiology: athesmos
 
2 Peter 2:7, 3:18 "error of the wicked"

Sad to say, this assertion is now officially controversial in some Christian quarters.
