  1. ” ‘ I will first list the evil causes and then their effect. There are fourteen evil causes:
    (1) arrogance, (2) negligence, (3) wrong views of the self, (4) shallow understanding, (5) attachment to earthly desires, (6) not understanding, (7) not believing, (8) scowling with knitted brows (9) harboring doubts, (10) slandering, (11) despising, (12) hating, (13) envying, and (14) bearing grudges.’ You must be on guard against them. ” (WND,756)

    If evil set free, it spreads and contaminates as you know


  2. Is it a generational thing? I don’t know your age; mine is old. And I only managed to sit through about fifteen minutes of “The Jungle Books,” before walking away. Because what I grew up on was the sound of my father’s voice, reading those stories to me, night after night. They were my favorites. Later I read all four of the Tolkien books to my son (when he was in the sixth grade). Only after he was an adult did we see the films which, for the most part, surprised me pleasantly with their quality. In short, although I love going to good movies and the ones I like I will see over and over again (everything from “Gandhi” to “Gladiator”), and although there is definitely something valuable in that multi-sensory experience, it is–in comparison to reading (and therefore to writing) a relatively passive experience. I hate to take up an old English teacher’s Luddite position but. . . books are better.

    1. Fair enough. I find that books can be better in different ways and sometimes films can be better in different ways. They are different medias. I try not to compare the book to the movie. I compare the experience and response I had to each differently.


  3. Just got an email that read, in part, “You might want to check out their blog. . .” Did I miss something? I’m following your blog as of the very moment I posted the comment. Or did “their” refer to some other blog? Or was your “like” a bit facetious? Or should I take a nap and rest my brain? It’s good to be following someone who seems to be keeping me on my toes.
