THAT OFFENSIVE RUGGED CROSS:

**Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.***

** But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty ***

*** But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags***

*** The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”) ***

**A few theologians are trying to say that God is dead. And I’ve been asking them about it because it disturbs me to know that God died and I didn’t have a chance to attend the funeral. They haven’t been able to tell me yet the date of his death. They haven’t been able to tell me yet who the coroner was that pronounced him dead.***

*** And whoever does not carry their Cross and follow me cannot be my disciple ***
