Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

  1. The Law that made me jump out was the one: If anyone sleeps with an animal they will be put to death. That one, I really had to stop and re-read to make sure I read it right.

  2. lol. Yeah, there are a few that have to be re-read.
