John Ruskin said this:
‘But the best romance becomes dangerous, if, by its excitement, it renders the ordinary course of life uninteresting, and increases the morbid thirst for useless acquaintance with scenes in which we shall never be called upon to act.’
Although he was speaking of novels before film existed, this very much applies to modern film
and is very much why I have little interest in watching it.
I was organizing my old emails and found this. Does anyone know the anwer?
God made Adam out of the dust, but thought it best to make me first;
So I was made before the man, according to God’s plan.
My whole body God made complete, without arms or hands or feet.
My ways and acts did God control, but in my body He placed no soul.
A living being I became, and Adam gave to me a name.
Then from his presence I withdrew, for this man Adam I never knew.
All my Makers laws I do obey, and from these laws I never stray.
Thousands of me go in fear, but seldom on the earth appear.
Later, for a purpose God did see, He placed a living soul in me.
And when this soul from me had fled, I was the same as when first made;
Without arms, legs, feet, or soul, I travel on from pole to pole.
My labors are from day to night, and men I once furnished light.
Thousands of people both young and old, did by my death bright lights behold.
No right or wrong can I conceive; the Bible and its teachings I can’t believe.
The fear of death doesn’t trouble me; pure happiness I will never see.
And up in heaven I can never go, not in the grave or Hell below.
So get your Bible and read with care; you’ll find my name recorded there.
Hint: The answer is one word, five letters long, and appears only five times in the King James Version of the Bible.
