“If today you had to choose one of the two thieves crucified with Christ as a friend or think about which of the two you could sooner put your trust in, it’s certainly not that whimpering convert. No, it’s the other one, he’s a real man with character. He doesn’t give a hoot about converting, which in his situation can only be pretty speechifying; he travels his path to the end, and doesn’t act like a coward at the last minute, renouncing the Devil, who must have helped him up until then. He’s a man of character, and people of character generally get short shrift in Bible stories. Maybe he’s a descendant of Cain. Don’t you think so?”

    I am for certain feeling Cain lol! Never thought about it like that…. he had conviction! He was hot or cold and not lukewarm. That you have to respect!

      It will take me a while to digest the “Cainite Gnosis” my brain is teeming with now. Definitely not something I’m used to!

      Love, Rachel
