I usually go to my local library, but I did pick up a cookbook a few weeks back from the resale shop for a dollar. The Whole Grain Baking Sampler.

The last two books I bought were "Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline, and "A Memory of Light", the final book in the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan (and Brandon Sanderson).  Both books are highly recommended, despite their various flaws.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Bargain books I found yesterday:

When Hell Froze Over: The Secret War Between The U.S. And Russia At The Top Of The World by E.M. Halliday

John Paul Jones: A Sailor's Biography by Samuel Eliot Morison

Planet Of The Apes by Pierre Boulle

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal.

I bougth all these books at a local thriftstore, they were all in good readable condition, for a mere $11 bucks ta boot. Whether they are excellent or average, or bad history does not matter at this bargain.

Duel of Eagles - Peter Townsend

A History Of Israel: From the rise of Zionism to our time - Howard M Sachar

The Life, Times, & Treacherous Death of Jesse James - Frank Triplett

The Ottoman Centuries: The Rise and Fall of the Turkish Empire - Lord Kinross

Unit 731: Japan's Secret Biological Warfare In World War II - David Wallace & Peter Williams (remember my friends treating me to one of the more disturbing Chinese horror films I have ever seen called Men Behind The Sun which was about Unit 731, bad bad film but put this terrible little known piece of history on the map personally.)

  • (Christian) Gnosticism also has the Holy Spirit, Christ(os), Jesus, LOVE...and God.

According to Gnosticism, Christ came to world to give us a way out; so, why is Gnosticism so secretive and elitist when it comes to salvation??
My Lord is not a judge but a loving Divine Being. Love is our natural state, and it also demands us to grow up. Our conscience tells us when we are not in that state of love.
