there are distinct persons within the unified Godhead

It is 10:56 AM Tuesday morning in the ongoing process of universal decay. Carol just left to have lunch with girlfriends. She took our van because she took in our car this morning to have it's muffler checked. She asked me for my set of keys so as to drive the van. I asked her where were her set of keys? She said left her set of keys at the auto shop. I said What! you left your set of keys with strangers who could be killers or thieves. Now those monster killers can break into our house anytime they want and kill us or rob us. We are now no longer safe in our own home. I could be alone here at home and during the night someone can use a copy of my wife's house keys to come int the house and kill me. I now will live every night afraid I will be killed during the night by a grease monkey monster killer! I feel absolutely sick with dread now knowing this house is now not a safe place. This house is now open for anyone to walk in and kill us or rob us. I never leave my set of keys with anyone. We live in a world of mad insane pagan killers!

All I can do now is buy a gun for protection from monster pagan killers.

So my morning goes by. I can't even think clearly now that my life will be under constant danger of being destroyed by some monster killer who has a day job working on cars.

The Gospel of John

It is 12:55 PM Tuesday afternoon here in West Michigan. I was reading for morning devotions 'John' Interpreted by Early Christian and Medieval Commentators and got inspired to make a video for my Booktube channel showing some of the books I have in my main study that would enable someone to study the Gospel of John. In Booktube world someone is having a May read along on the four New Testament Gospels and I thought I would show some of our books on the Gospel of John in our library. I do not plan to do this read along because right now I am reading the Gospel of John for devotions.

"[26] And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
[27] Then saith he to Thomas, reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
[28] And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.
[29] Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
[30] And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
[31] But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name
