So kill the evil desire lurking in your members: sexual vice, impurity, sensual appetites, unholy desires, and all greed and covetousness, for that is idolatry. Kill. Put to death. Extinguish. Eliminate. Be rid of. Repent. Turn away. Return no more. Mortify. Purge. These are not friendly words. In fact, these are things you would never […]

“It’s not what we eat but what we digest that makes us strong; not what we gain but what we save that makes us rich; not what we read but what we remember that makes us learned; and not what we profess but what we practice that gives us integrity.” It’s been an interesting period […]

“I do not feel obliged to believe that the same G-d who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.” I’ve been told, for over 3 years now, to figure out what it is that I want in life. However, upon reaching an intermediary solution for this question, […]

“I fear being like everyone I hate, I fear failure, I fear losing control. I love balancing between chaos and control with everything I do. I always have a fear of going one way or another, getting lost in something, or losing everything to get lost in. And I fear being a completely acceptable sheep […]

“America’s abundance was created not by public sacrifices to the common good, but by the productive genius of free men who pursued their own personal interests and the making of their own private fortunes.
