Delivered from Duplicity

Blasie Pascal (Pensées, #164):


What a figment of the imagination human beings are!

What a novelty, what monsters!


judging everything,
mindless worm of the earth,
storehouse of truth,
cesspool of uncertainty and error,
glory and reject of the universe.

Romans 7:24-8:1

Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!… There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.
