Even using my off-line mail reader (Papyrus 6.2) the on-line and disk space charges on my local dial-up Internet provider are outlandish, so I’ll have to keep this short. 🙂

IMHO, the wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness of men. }:> U, therefore, have no excuse to pass judgment. God will judge all. BTW, Jews have no right to boast simply because of our ancestry. Circumcision 🙁 is meaningful only if it is inward — otherwise, BFD. Similarly, IBM owners have no right to boast simply because of the customer support they receive. In Him we are neither IBM nor Gateway, Tandy nor Compaq. None of us is righteous.

As King David wrote:

KD> There is no one righteous, not even one;

KD> There is no one who understands, no one who seeks

KD> God, no one who has not illegally copied his

KD> favorite game program for a friend.

But Abraham believed God, and so God credited it to him as *virtual* righteousness. But does this mean we should sin all we want? No way! We must live through the spirit.

The law kills O-|-< but the spirit gives life.

Offer yourselves as living sacrifices to God.

Pay for shareware if you decide to keep using it.

And don’t flame somebody for making a spelling error or failing to read the FAQ list.

Nothing is unclean to God, but if something is going to cause your fellow Christian to sin, delete it from your hard drive.

Watch out for those R- and X-rated .GIF files.

I’m hoping to visit Rome later this year; save me a space on the couch. CUL8er. 🙂
