'This is My commandment,
That ye love one another,

I am sorry that you interpreted my words as you did. The reference from 1 Corinthians 2 was in regard to what was said about Eve, and for no other purpose, which a comparison with the other references quoted should have made clear. There was also no intent on my part to bring an...

That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness,
not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good...

Thank you for responding to my entry.
How do I understand Acts 15:28-29?
I can understand why you ask this.
As I consider how to reply, my mind goes to Galatians chapter 2, where Paul refers to this visit: and also to another reference which considers things sacrificed to idols...
There is sausage called, 'black pudding', it is cut into circles and fried, and served mostly with a typical English cooked breakfast. It is made of blood.
