    “19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, 21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
    22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” Galatians 5:19-24

    Guy wrote this in 2001 according to the copyright.

    You’d think he could avoid a (highly probable) typographical error in his own poem.

    Counting the title panel as panel 1, panel 3 should read "Intolerance tries to sneak on through, should it not?.

    It appears that way in this book.

    Depends…. On who one has to deal with. I usually am a peaceful person…until the Devil shows up in front of me … then I turn into a demon of silence and a stare. Silence works better than harsh words. I can never have regrets from being not returning what I receive from Devils.

    I believe whatever I send out in the Universe comes back to me. So I only want to send out the best to receive the best. Someone ask me for money, I give and I receive back. I help people, and the help comes back to me. I don’t do it to have it come back, it just does.

    I also believe in a smile and kind words to strangers, strangers are only friends youn have just met.

    Being polite, caring about one another, kind words, helping one another. It costs nothing, or if there is a cost of time or money if needed, it was provided to you and you should give it.

    Fill your heart with love and joy, it makes you feel so good. Keeps you happy and healthy. And when you do, it is a magnet for other well meaning people to enter your life.

    And finally, be kind to animals. They could have been one of your family members in another form.

    Re: Nabuquduriuzhur said, about 7 hours ago — Galatians 5:19-24


    Could also be – Galatians 5:14 —

    For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. — Galatians 5:14 – King James Version.


    For the whole Law – concerning human relationships – is complied with in the one precept – You shall love your neighbor as you do yourself. Galatians 5:14 – Amplified


    Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. — Romans 13:8-10, King James Version

    Keep out of debt and owe no man anything, except to love one another. For he who loves his neighbor – who practices loving others – has fulfilled the Law – relating to one’s fellowmen, meeting all its requirements. — The commandments, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not steal, You shall not covet – have an evil desire – , and any other commandment, are summed up in the single command, You shall love your neighbor as you do yourself. Love does no wrong to one’s neighbor – it never hurts anybody. – Therefore love meets all the requirements and is the fulfilling of the Law. – Romans 13:8-10, Amplified


    Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord. — Leviticus 19:18, King James Version


    You shall not take revenge or bear any grudge against the sons of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord. — Leviticus 19:18, Amplified

    And from the far-right side of the aisle comes intolerance on the wings of fear and pride. They have tried to keep America in a constant state of fear since 9/11, and have used a vast amount of flag-waving in a sinful display of pride. Meanwhile, they have done whatever they could to subjugate minorities in America, and intolerance to anyone who is not straight, white, male or conservative.

    I thank you for spotting my spelling error. It is very rare one gets “through”. We have at least six sets of eyes on a strip before it reaches you! But, it does happen. Thanks for seeing “through” the error to the message.

    Frankly, the first translation is fit only for children, and the second, however good it may have been four hundred years ago, is now fit only for professors of Renaissance literature.

    If we don’t let them all in, we’re discriminating, which is bad.

    Guy, I do a devotional email to some friends and I’d like to use this strip today as an illustration. If I need to shoot an email, say so.

    The King James version isn’t a translation of the Vulgate translation in the first place. If you want to study the Vulgate, learn Late Latin.
