With the coming of GOD into the authority of our hearts comes the unveiling of the law of grace engraved in our consciences. In grace, we have this law and it is to love. In grace we have this law: to love GOD and then to love others as we love our own selves; to love life; to love the death that brings life in crucifixion; to love joy and the peace of truth; to love and to love for that is the new law.
The consequences of these awful beginnings always lead to the victim-syndrome. For example between humans and GOD, the victim-syndrome insists that GOD is wicked to allow the wickedness of humanity evolve. If there is no irony in the free will-request for free-will to cease to exist, I don't know what is. So this is where we began and after this, the defect of wickedness in (hu)man erupted as high as the sky.
Such words as “Religion”, “rites”, “ritual”, “revenge” to name a few. I feel these words – and more like them – are they which should not be comfortably descriptive of the Christian.

Anyway, permit me to rephrase your latter verses in this first chapter as the Conservatives' Creed: Eight Lovely Christian Notions the World Hates.
it is problematic to think that life gave birth to death and death has lived its life haunted by the need to hunt down life. I could go on: roaming my mind for evidence that death is alive and wishes to be the only form of life...scratch that of existence but that’s not the focus or emphasis, here.
Do you agree that in the end, the end of a temptation is the beginning of remission? Do think temptation is a sickness or just treatment from the sickness of imperfection? Do you agree?

Do you agree that if GOD did not lead us to temptations to be tempted then the temptation is a distraction from the goal of glorification? You agree?
BOND 289 This is an incomplete spoken-word poem (an impersonation): I’ve fallen/ I've sinned/ I've grinned at sin/ I’ve sinned and grinned/ (I’ve) been weaned but sinned. I've fallen/ I've risen/ Again, I hope to begin/ but being human is sick if I don't live, meek/ I have owed morality a great debt/ I’m shallow-minded … Continue reading RE: What Have you Done?
Why do I say all these? To glorify the work of sin? Never! I say this so you'll understand the gloom that comes with being guilty of sins from simply thinking of sins.
Another point is that with polygamy comes the need to constantly judge – not just character but the array of choices. You'll need to know good and evil, good from evil and it goes on and on. Every contact has two sides…you need to decide on which is which. That’s the true conflict and it’s all happening inside you, first.
If we deserve punishment in judgement, we can receive an entitlement of forgiveness by this commandment. Break the Wheel!
