A literary blog I read titled Bibloklept daily-
https://biblioklept.org/2019/07/02/bl...

I filmed this video this morning. I thought I would share with the world my struggles to believe the recorded words of the Lord Jesus in the Gospels. How when I read the Gospels I can either put my faith in Christ and believe Him or I can go the way of Cain. After posting this video I lost a couple of subscribers. When subscribers decide to unsubscribe to my Youtube channel I often wonder why? Did I disappoint them by what I said or did not say? Did these unsubscribers find me boring? Did they make a decision not to believe in the Gospel of Christ?

I seek to be real in my videos in Youtube even though I am sure I come off being weird. But I consider myself a radical. I am a non-conformist. I only seek to follow the teachings of the Bible The Word of God. I do not love this world. I am seeking the City of God. "But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them" Hebrews 11:16.

"[63] It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
[64] But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
[65] And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
[66] From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
[67] Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
[68] Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

[69] And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
[70] Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
[71] He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve." John 6:63-71
It is in the flow of being alive 3:22 PM Monday afternoon. It is a warm day, but not oppressive humid. Carol opened up the house this morning.

I am extremely tired as usual so this is going to be short and sweet. I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. Ollie slept in his crate during the night in view of our bed, so he was OK. When I got up this morning I immediately took out Ollie to take a leak.

After dealing with the dog I made a pot of coffee and ate breakfast. After breakfast I messed with our main computer and then wrote in my paper diary. I read this morning for devotions from a book titled, 'Trinity Without Hierarchy: Reclaiming Nicene Orthodoxy in Evangelical Theology' Michael F. Bird & Scott Harrower Editors. I also filmed a video this morning for my Youtube channel.

I took Ollie for a walk before leaving for the Book Nook. When we got back from our walk Carol was home from work and from going grocery shopping. I left for the Book Nook our local library used books store around 9:45 AM. Today the Book Nook was not busy nor was it slow either. When not helping people I read from a slim novel titled, 'A Brief History of Portable Literature' a novella by Enrique Vila-Matas. I bought at the Book Nook these used books to ADD to our library-

'The Longest Cocktail Party: An Insider's Diary Of The Beatles. Their Million Dollar 'Apple' Empire And Its Wild Rise And Fall' by Richard DiLello

'The Libertine Reader: Eroticism And Enlightenment In Eighteenth-Century France' Edited By Michael Feher

'The Travelers' a novel by Regina Porter

When I got home from the Book Nook it was 1:25 PM. Carol was up when I got home. She is extremely tired after working three nights. She left this afternoon to visit her elderly friend Pam.

I have been reading mainly a novel titled, 'Tears Of The Trufflepig' a novel by Fernando A. Flores. I am falling asleep so I will close now.
