Memo

45 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

Matthew 13:45-46

"You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.

Matthew 5:27-30

So the lesson here for the Christian is that it is better to give up a specific pleasure for the Kingdom of God.  For example, is something keeping you from the Kingdom of God like spending too much time on some digital screen?  Get rid of it for the better thing.  Why give up the Kingdom of God for some earthly pleasure?

What is the Kingdom of God?  The Kingdom of God is union with Christ.  When you become a repentant believer you become a part of the Kingdom of God both now and in the next life.  As such we must continually be transformed into a new creation by replacing the destructive with the perfect and Holy.

I'm starting a new app, Screentime to see how much time I spend on my computer and to see if I can use it to limit my computer usage.

Audio book: Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court by Mollie Hemingway; editor at the Federalist and Carrie Severino, Judicial Crisis Network and previously a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

Summary: Of all of the vicious and horrible things that have happened to the president and various other people of the Trump administration, this is easily one of the worst.  Sadly, there are a few other things going on that are arguably worse.  Even worse is that there may well be worse things to come.

This is the inside story of how an innocent man was framed and vilified in the media, at home, and in his confirmation hearing, which most view as an interrogation and sentencing trial for a terrorist.  He was accused of sexual misconduct/ rape by upwards of a dozen women.
