Maybe your indecision has been going on longer than that, though

or maybe it's because you keep reading worldly (aka demonic) books instead of one's sanctified by the Holy Spirit?

try this for a change:

Just stumbled across this quote in The Testaments:

“No one wants to die,” said Becka. “But some people don’t want to live in any of the ways that are allowed.”


damn

Becka is a Biblical name?

I thought that one was reserved for club types that get awkward six times a night when somebody they owe for pills walks in.

Hmm, don't know about that one. It seems a little spiritually sketchy.

Have you checked with your local church elder?

It was always enough for me that her books are just pages of bland dialogue set against a backdrop of the most pedestrian possible storytelling clichés, but it would appear that Rowling's authorship is not necessarily any worse than her inner character.

yeah i only got 100 pages into that and gave up. the characters were too goofy/surreal to be compelling.

loved the rest of cholera tho. great ending. great setting! the city and the time really felt immersive and tangible.

in any case, picked this up on a whim (sorta) from a new local place after having listened to 3 or so WTC related albums the day before



not too far into it yet but it sure does start with a bang

how are you reading a book & don't even notice the name of the author?

i'm beginning to suspect this "Tool of a Fool" character hasn't read a god damned thing

I don't wanna go full on conspiracy guy, but I believe there's a lot of political motivation and deception going on with Covid-19. A year before in Davos for the World Economic Forum there was a presentation about the need for a "great reset" and it was actually suggested that it could be rolled out under the guise of a pandemic.
