I love this passage. Peter is wondering about when he will die relative to when John will, and Jesus sets him straight. That’s good advice for all of us: Just follow Jesus! We don’t need to know what He will do with other people, or why things have played out as they have. It also points to Jesus’ divinity, as He is the one who determines how long we will live.

John 21:22 Jesus said to him, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow me!”

Op-Ed: An Open Letter to Christians Using Preferred Pronouns — I agree. If you meet someone for the first time, then I think you are stuck using the preferred name they give you. And there are all sorts of odd and unisex names out there. But you don’t use pronouns when talking directly to someone, so it isn’t a politeness issue anyway. But it is lying and caving in to bullying to deliberately use the wrong pronouns. Don’t be cowards. I’ll get fired before I put my pronouns in a work email or whatever — although I’d be tempted to say they are XY/XY/XY, as in XY chromosomes.

If the winner of the 1976 Men’s Decathlon is a female, then Karen Carpenter was fat. If you truly love your neighbors you won’t indulge their delusions and/or perversions — and you certainly won’t force others to indulge them or tell kids they may not “really” be boys or girls.

In short, to declare your own gender is to attempt a coup d’etat of Heaven, to overthrow God, and to sit on his throne as the Creator and the dispenser of genders. Might the Lord cast you down like the civilization of Babel and scatter you like its haughty descendants (Genesis 11:9)

When you use someone’s “preferred gender pronoun that corresponds with their expressed gender identity” you are bearing false witness against them (Exodus 20:16). We are not to lie about our neighbors, and even the wicked and/or mentally or spiritually ill are our neighbors (Luke 10:25-37). If you were suffering from a mental or spiritual malady that gave you delusions or self-deceptions, you would not want people to reinforce it, but free you from it. Ergo, to use ‘preferred pronouns’ is not loving your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:31). It is mean-spirited and unloving.

Furthermore, to lie about someone’s pronoun is not only to bear false witness against your neighbor, but it is to bear false witness against God. God made them male or female, and you lie about the King of Glory and the work of his hands. If someone were to say that heavens declare the glory of Satan and the stars show his handiwork, they would be blaspheming God. And because God makes gender, to imply an individual gets to make their own gender by using their preferred pronouns, is blaspheming God.

I think there is an unfortunate chapter break between Luke 20 and 21. I used to think that the widow’s mite passage was an encouragement to give more, but a sermon by John MacArthur disabused me of that. The context is how the scribes are bad, including devouring widows’ houses. Then it shows how a widow gives all she had to live on. We should give generously, of course (2 Cor. 9), but the notion that we would daily give all we have to live on is absurd. It would be irresponsible to do that. And the next passage is about how the temple will be coming down soon anyway.

Luke 20:46–47 “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, who devour widows’ houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.”

Luke 21:1–4 Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, “Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”

A couple great passages that should make the “Christian” Left wake up. They don’t know the scriptures (or they know them and deny them) and they don’t know the power of God. And despite claiming to hold to the “red letters,” they are ashamed of his words 24×7. They think He is a bigot because of his views on sex and marriage.

Mark 12:24 Jesus said to them, “Is this not the reason you are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God?”

Mark 8:36–38 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

I want men to stop giving money to Only Fans women — Guys who support OF and such are pathetic. Cut off the demand for that nonsense and the supply will diminish. Both genders are at fault here. I read an awful story about a boy getting teased mercilessly at school because his mom was on OF and refused to stop. She made money and it made her feel good. Sick. That kid will probably harm himself.

Dating apps have rapidly and dramatically altered the landscape for the worse. 80-90% of women will only consider 10-20% of guys. The top guys know this and are unlikely to ever commit, especially when “sleeping down” with the lower-value women. Yet those women are “alpha widows,” thinking that they should be able to get a top guy (by the world’s definition) to commit. It won’t happen. These women have convinced themselves that guys won’t (and shouldn’t) care about their notch counts, but that is a fantasy. No self-respecting guy wants a woman who has had s3x with dozens or hundreds of guys and now wants to settle with him — probably temporarily — for some beta bucks.

And the women generally have rigid standards (e.g., 6′ tall, 6 figure income, etc.), some of which a guy can’t control. Yet the women freak out when men have simple standards (tat-free, debt-free virgins). Despite what feminism has told women, most men don’t care if you have a successful career.

The women will cry and ask “where have all the good men gone?” The answer, as always, is that they are where the women left them: In the Friend Zone.

Of course, I believe in repentance, forgiveness, and redemption. But behaviors have consequences. The world has been lying to men and women in increasingly ridiculous ways, and if you believe those lies you will experience harm.

I mean this is acting. It’s not preaching, it’s acting. And he is lying every Sunday, every single Sunday that he has gotten up and plagiarized these sermons. He is looking his congregation right in the eye and he’s lying to them. Every time he does it, he’s lying to them. And he’s supposed to be shepherding them.

It isn’t generosity when you “give” the money of others

This is an update of a 12-year old post, but note how timely it is: Our grifter President has always been a total cheapskate, in addition to his many other moral failings, yet he and his handlers are oh-so-generous with our money. And keep in mind that his income noted below may not include the kickbacks he got from other countries.

A typical year of giving for Joe Biden. Probably!

When the title says “give,” it obviously means, “take at the point of a gun to redistribute to your voters in counterproductive ways.”

Most Liberals assume that they are more generous.  They come from Stereotype Land and read the script just like the media and entertainment complexes tell them to.  But studies show that by any measure — giving time, money, or even blood donations — conservatives are more generous.  They just don’t lobby Caesar to “give” your money and count it as a good deed on their part.  See Who Really Cares.

And consider how these Liberal heroes want to take your money to “give” to others but can’t manage any real and significant giving themselves.  If Joe Biden, for example, can’t afford to give more than 0.2% over his roughly quarter-million-dollar income (that is point-two percent, not two percent — only $369 per year), then how could he possibly afford to pay increased taxes?  Oh yeah, there will be loopholes for him and those who vote for the tax increase bills.

His 0.2% giving and the percentages below are even worse than they look because they are based on Adjusted Gross Income, which is typically much less than gross income.

The Palins gave over 10 times what Biden did, percentage-wise, though that was still just 2% in 2007 and 3.8% in 2006.  They donated much more money than the Bidens with only half the income.

Too bad the media didn’t lead with that story in 2008.

A truly inconvenient truth: Al & Tipper Gore donated $353 of their 1997 income of $197,729, or 0.18%.  That is a fraction of 1%.  I wonder if he’s making real donations now that he’s getting rich off the AGW fraud?

More Liberal Scrooges (read the whole article at the link – it is priceless).

Andrew Cuomo

Cuomo was a homeless advocate throughout the 1990s, but according to his own tax returns he made no charitable contributions between 1996 and 1999. In 2000 he donated a whopping $2,750. In 2004 and 2005, Cuomo had more than $1.5 million in adjusted gross income but gave a paltry $2,000 to charity.

Cuomo made no charitable contributions in 2003, when his income was a bit less than $300,000.

Barack Obama — wow, a whole percent!  Hope and change, baby.

Barack Obama has a rather poor track record when it comes to charitable contributions. He consistently gave 1 percent of his income to charity. In his most charitable year, 2005, he earned $1.7 million (two and a half times what George W. Bush earned) but gave about the same dollar amount as the President.

John Kerry

Senator John Kerry likewise has a poor record. In 1995 he gave zero to charity, but did spend $500,000 to buy a half stake in a seventeenth century painting. In 1993, he gave $175 to the needy.

Ted Kennedy, champion of the poor

Senator Ted Kennedy has clearly relished his role over the years as a liberal Robin Hood. He once told Al Hunt of the Wall Street Journal, “I come from an advantaged life, and I’ll be goddamned if I’m going to get re-elected to the U.S. Senate by taking food out of the mouths of needy children.” But this should not be confused with Senator Kennedy actually giving much money to needy children.

. . . With a net worth of more than $8 million in the early 1970s and an income of $461,444 from a series of family trusts, Senator Robin Hood gave barely 1 percent of his income to charity. The sum is about as much as Kennedy claimed as a write-off on his fifty-foot sailing sloop Curragh.

But the poverty pimps give loads, right?  Uh, not exactly:

Jesse Jackson has often claimed that he operates from a “liberal spirit of compassion and love” while conservatives are “heartless and uncaring toward the silent poor.” But according to his publicly-released tax returns, he regularly donates less than 1 percent to charity.

Not surprisingly, while the political ideology of conservatives isn’t driven by redistributing the wealth of others, they are far more generous.  Even FDR was a cheap giver:

This evidence of liberal hypocrisy is damning enough, but what really amazes is how poorly these liberals do in comparison to so-called “heartless conservatives.” President Ronald Reagan, for instance, was often called heartless and callous by liberals. Unlike Roosevelt or JFK, Reagan was not a wealthy man when he became president. He had no family trust or investment portfolio to fall back on.

And yet, according to his tax returns, Reagan donated more than four times more to charity — both in terms of actual money and on a percentage basis — than Senator Ted Kennedy. And he gave more to charities with less income than FDR did. In 1985, for example, he gave away 6 percent of his income.

George W. Bush and Dick Cheney have continued this Reagan record. During the early 1990s, George W. Bush regularly gave away more than 10 percent of his income. In 2005, Vice President Dick Cheney gave away 77 percent of his income to charity. He was actually criticized by some liberal bloggers for this, who claimed he was getting too much of a tax deduction.

These Liberal leaders preach about generosity but they are hypocrites and fakes.  They want to take from neighbor A to give to neighbor B — while taking their commission, of course — and consider it charity on their part.  And they have plenty of confused and/or fake religious folks helping them, including the Methodist leader who thinks the proposed health care bill — which includes taxpayer-funded abortions — is in the spirit of the Good Samaritan.

Save this link to show those who claim that Liberal leaders really care about others. Even if their voting didn’t lead to wildly counterproductive results, whatever it is, it isn’t giving on their part.

And don’t be like them! Lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven by giving wisely to advance God’s kingdom. You won’t regret it.

Romans 1:21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Philosopher of science Stephen Meyer’s new book, “Return of the God Hypothesis: Three Scientific Discoveries That Reveal the Mind Behind the Universe,” documents the history of the fall of the God hypothesis in science during the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. But the hypothesis is back, Meyer explains, detailing three scientific discoveries of the last 100 years that are fueling its “return.”

The three are: 1) the discovery that the secret of life is the information contained in living things, 2) the discovery that the laws and constants of physics in our universe are extremely “fine-tuned” for life and 3) the discovery that the universe had a beginning.

. . . Charles Darwin’s extremely implausible explanation for the origin of species, which becomes more implausible with every new biological and biochemical discovery, remains popular in the scientific world today only because — no matter how implausible and how inconsistent with the evidence — it must be true because it is the only alternative anyone can imagine to the “unscientific” theory of intelligent design.

3rd Grade Teacher Brainwashes Classroom: Shows Off Pride Month Curriculum — We’re going to need a lot of millstones to clean this place up. As predicted, the Pervert Lobby immediately went from “We would never push this on children, we just want to blah blah blah” to “Of course we are pushing it on children!” And pushing this on 3rd graders?! Get your kids out of public schools.

Are you reading the Bible regularly?

I read the Bible through for the first time in 1996 – some in the morning, and some at night. It was the most transformational year of my life. I wasn’t trying to change, but the Word changed me anyway.

I do much better when I do a chapter in the morning and a chapter at night. Keeps me focused on God.

If you are short on time, listen to the Bible on your commute. The average chapter is less than 4 minutes. You can download it for free at Bible.is .

The PrayerMate app is great for prayer. Prayer is not my strong suit, but that app helps.

If you aren’t reading the Bible regularly it is because you’ve decided not to.


Male feminists are the worst. They actively fight for laws allowing their own children to be slaughtered up to their first breaths. Real men protect the weak — especially their own children!


How Rich Americans Plan to Escape Biden Tax Hikes: PPLI Is a Perfect Loophole — The rich have already found a way to avoid the tax increases? No kidding. Soaking the rich sounds great, but they are remarkably waterproof. The truth that lower tax rates lead to higher tax revenues may seem counterintuitive, but it has proved out repeatedly all the way back to the 1920’s. The elites, such as Obama, don’t like the optics, so they continue to put forth counterproductive schemes. But having lower personal rates gives people less incentive to hide their money. Having lower corporate rates means more companies and jobs in the U.S. I saw it countless times when I worked at Compaq/HP.

Forbes Deletes Article by Education Expert Asserting That Forcing Children to Wear Masks Causes Psychological Trauma — Disappointing move by Forbes. Hopefully the “Streisand effect” brings more attention to it than it would have received otherwise.


They are Molech-worshiping ghouls, out in force with their logical fallacy-fest to support crushing and dismembering children to their first breath. Yes, blacks are killed at a rate three times that of whites. It is perhaps the only form of systemic racism in place. Jeffrey Toobin is your typical male feminist – arguably the lowest form of life — fighting for the right for women to kill his unwanted children. Real men protect the weak. And only Leftists could celebrate crushing and dismembering Down Syndrome children.


Sir Isaac Newton did his best work while working from home during a pandemic — I’ve been working from home full-time for 6 years, and did it for almost 15 years on a part-time basis (1-2 days a week) before that. It was a huge gain for productivity and enjoying life. The Covid thing has been a disaster on many levels, but it has yielded some good things. People at work who used to scoff at working from home now love it. My employees are thrilled. And Isaac knew the benefits all along!

Video: Pro-life reasoning — The case for life & responding to pro-choice arguments

Hi all,

I’m re-running this in light of all the bad arguments the Molech-worshiping ghouls are throwing out in reaction to the Texas abortion law.

This is a video version of the PowerPoint slides I’ve shared before.  I taught this for years to volunteers at Care Net Pregnancy Center.  What was always interesting is how these great folks, who were strongly pro-life, hadn’t heard how to make the case for life and how to respond to pro-choice sound bites.  And most of them had never heard of people like Kermit Gosnell, the greatest serial killer in American history, because they got most of their news from the mainstream media that successfully hid his story.

VA Supreme Court Affirms Reinstating Loudoun Teacher Fired Over Pronouns — Good for this guy! I’ll never agree to put my pronouns in an email or whatever at work, but if I had to at the point of a gun I’d say “XY,” as in XY chromosomes.

“I’m a teacher, but I serve God first. I will not affirm that a biological boy can be a girl and vice versa, because it’s against my religion,” Cross said. “It’s lying to a child, it’s abuse to a child, and it’s sinning against our God.”


Texas Pro-Life Law Stands, Left Begins Meltdown — More good news! Of course, the Molech-worshiping ghouls are wetting their pants over this. I think we should abolish abortion completely, but laws that reduce them save lives. A dim-witted congresswoman said the law would harm queer people (huh?!) and impact black women more than white. So the black congresswoman is sad that not as many black children will be crushed and dismembered — because black lives matter, or something. Somewhere Rachel Held Evans is grinning (most likely through gnashing teeth).


Leftists are opportunistic racists, exploiting black people 24×7. George Bush called it the “soft bigotry of low expectations,” but it is really the harsh bigotry of zero expectations. The Left doesn’t expect blacks to be able to get an ID, obey laws, understand math, study, work, etc. They just buy their votes with your money. When will blacks as a whole repudiate the Left’s insulting nonsense?


Elizabeth Holmes Might Claim Abusive Relationship in Theranos Fraud Trial – WSJ — So female executives are easily manipulated and too weak to be held accountable for their behavior? Interesting defense. Duly noted. Full-blown feminism is bad enough, but selective feminism is worse.


Yes, we need more equality! Forget the glass ceiling, what about the grass ceiling, where every lawn mowing team I see is 100% male? Or the concrete ceiling, where the only road construction females I’ve ever seen are holding the stop/go signs?


We also need more equity – that is, equal outcomes. So whenever you see white Leftists blathering on about equity, remind them to put the “quit” in equity by resigning their position so that a minority can have it.


I assume you saw the article about the public school teacher who hid the U.S. flag, had kids pledge allegiance to the Pervert Pride Flag, teaches kids to hate themselves and their country, and who knows what else. Get your kids out of government schools! This lady just happened to out herself. The rest are mostly like her but aren’t quite as stupid as her to advertise it.

P.S. We need to bring back the word pervert. For example, I refer to the “pride” flag as the Pervert Pride Flag. It is precise and will provoke a needed reaction. Every letter in their alphabet soup of perversions represents a perversion of God’s created order.


Harvard’s New Lead Chaplain is an Atheist — No surprise that colleges wouldn’t allow real Christians to do the job. Most of the hospital chaplains I’ve encountered aren’t Christians. When my wife was in the hospital a few years back, the chaplain was a tatted/ringed hippie caricature who was into New Age. I shared the Gospel with him. A good friend who spent lots of time in the hospital said that he regularly shared the Gospel with non-Christian chaplains.


Feminism & Its Failures — How low will they have to go before they admit what an abject failure it is? We need more patriarchy.

Happiness metrics confirm that women are struggling: Suicides, depression, substance abuse, and sexually transmitted infections have all increased dramatically over the last five decades. Women aren’t becoming happier, just more medicated. A 2020 Pew Report showed that over 50 percent of liberal white women under 30 have some sort of mental-health issue. That statistic alone is stunning enough to indicate that something is going very wrong for the modern woman, despite the steady uptick of feminist advances.


Nearly Half Of U.S. Children Are Now Overweight Or Obese — The statistics were staggering before the pandemic, and now they are worse. If adults let themselves go it is one thing, but it is child abuse to watch kids get obese. Feed them a little healthier food, feed them a little less of it, and get them off the couch to go play and exercise!

To make the Taliban’s job easier, Biden gave them a list of Americans in Afghanistan — This is history-making stupidity. It is so stupid that it must have been intentional. It seems that they want all our Afghan allies to be executed. Such a combination of stupidity and evil! And don’t get me started on leaving the equipment behind and shutting the other airbase. The “we will hunt you down” line was meaningless.


This is why the media hid Biden, he’s too incompetent to be president — No kidding. Trump is an immoral man who didn’t force his immorality on the populace. Biden is an immoral man joining forces with a sea of immoral Democrats forcing their immorality on the populace. They all knew he was incompetent even when not suffering from dementia, but they propped him up and hid him anyway. Oh, and they stole the election.

And predictably, the media isn’t reporting on Biden’s failures as much as they are on how Republicans are “pouncing” on the failures. And they ignore how he said the quiet part out loud when noting that he was told which journalists to call on.


In my experience, most of the “anti-racist” Leftists on Facebook have very few black friends. One dude years ago keep ranting about racist Republicans. For grins, I checked his friends list. Not one black friend! Oh, wait, there was a picture of a black lab, but the owner was white. Meanwhile, I had over 20. But he’d still insist that I was the racist. And of course, he was pro-abortion, so he was part of the project to exterminate black children.


My wife and I joke about playing the “cancer” card to get out of things. But we don’t actually do it! Yet Biden can’t go 15 minutes without trying to generate sympathy from the death of his son — when he isn’t simultaneously “taking responsibility” and blaming Trump. He does it to deflect from his incompetence. What a twisted ghoul. And after he’s done with that, he trots out the straw-man argument about why we should leave Afghanistan. Most people agreed on that, but he is pretending that’s the issue and not his incalculably bad decisions in making the exit.


ELCA Installs “Golden Female Genitalia Statue” Woman as “Pastor of Public Witness” — This wolf was BFFs with Rachel Held Evans, doing conferences together, which tells you all you need to know about both of them.


Renters Must Pay Their Bills After SCOTUS Ends Squatter Protections — Good news, sort of. Glad that the renters have to pay now, but the damage has been done. So many middle-class landlords will have been driven to sell their properties to the large real estate companies. And the Left will continue to brazenly put forth unconstitutional mandates knowing that they’ll never have any consequences.


As noted in another post, I’m not anti-vaccination, but I’m absolutely anti-mandatory vaccinations. Delta’s move to charge employees $200 per month for not being vaccinated is perverse, as are the medical personnel whining about not wanting to treat the unvaccinated. I’m waiting for them to charge extra and/or refuse service to everyone else with preventable illnesses — obese people, smokers, sodomites, fornicators, etc.

If they are forcing you to take it, then it is propaganda, not medicine.

Here’s a video with one Democrat after another saying not to take the vaccine. They blamed it on Trump, but it is the same vaccines they are giving today and shaming you for not taking.



All people have inherent value because they were created in the image of God, but you need to actually accomplish something to be special to the world. Hat tip for the photo: Ace of Spades


Nancy Pelosi and others repeated the lie that women are underpaid. If you believe that, you need to expand your media horizons. That has been disproven countless times. Also, it would be illegal, and wise companies would hire all women to save money.


Picking a lane on election and predestination

Note: While I’m unapologetic about holding to Reformed theology, I’m not evangelical about it. I share the gospel without mentioning it, and gladly fellowship with authentic Christians who hold other views. However, I don’t appreciate the ignorance and arrogance of those who condemn those who believe Reformed theology.

If God didn’t choose to save some particular sinners destined for Hell, then it is because He couldn’t save them, or He wouldn’t save them.

Reconciling God’s sovereignty with man’s responsibility is important to think through for orthodox Christians – whether Reformed, Arminian, Molinist, or whatever you like to call yourself (i.e., anyone who agrees that God knew before creation began who would ultimately choose to repent and believe, and that open theism is false because God is omniscient and not learning as He goes). But I see too many people making the task unnecessarily difficult because they forget that our default destination is Hell. They unwittingly create a straw-man situation where God owes an opportunity for salvation to everyone. But then it wouldn’t be mercy and grace; it would be justice.

In other words, aside from Adam and Eve, who could have chosen otherwise but ultimately needed a Savior because of their choices, everyone else was initially destined for Hell. (For simplicity, I’m leaving out any miscarriage and age of accountability scenarios, however one fleshes those out).

So absent God’s mercy and grace, everyone would end up in Hell. People overcomplicate this to try to get God off the hook for eternal damnation. But it is they who put him on the hook. Everyone deserves to go there, but by God’s mercy and grace, He elects and predestines to save some. So humans are always the cause of them not being saved, not God.

I’ve yet to see someone with orthodox Christian beliefs come up with any alternative besides these reasons for why people end up in Hell:

  1. God didn’t elect them (Reformed)
  2. God couldn’t persuade them (Arminian or Molinism)
  3. God wouldn’t persuade them (Arminian or Molinism)

Even if you hold the view that God “looked down the corridor of time” and elected and predestined those who would choose him of their own “free will,” you are still left with those choices for the remainder.

Option 2 means that nothing God could have done would have convinced you to repent and believe.  It wouldn’t have mattered if He sovereignly put a stellar apologist next door to you and gave you lots of encounters with solid Christians (i.e., good experiences with Christianity and complete access to the facts and logic behind the faith). That sounds like Reformed theology to me, as it means that God created these people knowing that nothing would persuade them to believe. In his foreknowledge, He elected not to make them spiritually alive (a la John 3:8 “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”). They allegedly could choose him freely, but He was powerless to convince them.

Option 3 means that God could have persuaded them but elected not to. Again, that sounds Reformed to me.

I’ve heard of people trying to use Molinism (the concept of middle knowledge, where God knows every possible scenario that could have happened) to get around this, saying that God picked the universe where the most people would choose him. But that means that some would go to Hell in this universe but wouldn’t have in another universe, so God chose them to go to Hell. So they unwittingly end up with the same (false) scenario they are trying to explain away.

It is more biblical and logical to say that people have “free will” within their given nature. But as you can’t choose to fly like a bird because it isn’t in your nature, you can’t choose Jesus when it isn’t in your spiritually dead nature. But if God makes you spiritually alive (again, John 3:8) then you can and will choose Jesus because it is now in your nature to be able to do so.

If God didn’t choose to save some particular sinners destined for Hell, then it is because He couldn’t save them, or He wouldn’t save them.


Bonus thought: Why would Paul anticipate this argument if he was presenting anything but the Reformed view? Romans 9:19–20 You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?” But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?”
