    Is God 'Mercy, Pity, Peace and Love' as Blake wrote? Or do you have perhaps a different conception of God – do you picture a person you love or have loved and lost, or is your God even a violent God, or flawed in other ways?

    All-inclusive. Everything that I could ever need and more.
    He is the "I AM" which I take to mean He is everything that I require.

    He is - absolutely. He is everything we need.
    "I AM" in an absolute sense means He IS and we are not.

    Only He is and is everything for us.
    Everything positive He is the reality of.
    Whatever I lack, in Christ, He IS.

    The typology in the Old Testament has as its largest symbol of Jesus Christ "the Good Land" - it is the Promise Land.
    The all-inclusive land with everything God's people could possibly need is Christ.

    Ha! Tell me not to do something and I do it. Tell me to do something, and I just flat out refuse to lift a finger.

    I make my own rules and don't answer to The Man.

    I'm a wild one.

    That could prevent the sending of a cheque for 12 hundred pounds. 😀

    You thought I was stoopid and was now gonna send you a cheque for 12 hundred Euro's-less-intelligent-nephews, because you told me not to, didn't you?

    Think again buddy. I wasn't born again yesterday.

    You can, however, expect a new boiler to arrive any day now.

    Insert that in your pipe and inhale it.

    Too late. What has been said, can not be unsaid.

    Does she bite?
