Fr. Elias on the need to make a commitment to God and reject all false gods as is laid out to the Israelites by Joshua in the first reading.

    Well said Fr. Elias
    Language itself has found a home with you...why it is not taught using math physics and philosophy in every school, I have no idea ... but it certainly fills a cup with the correct procedure and God's protocol.(unction)
    Manners appreciative of a Mother's did not pollute the environment to make a nuclear bomb.She did not cheapen the manufacturing processes in the uS until they now make disposable junk.
    We have to notice these things happening today, because we are not at liberty to pass along thousands of years notes among us.Nor is the Holy Scriptures actually recognized by the united States government. God is not a politician, we are suppose to notice we need not prohibit, leveraging a fine, determining the length of incarceration or how far down the road of time must a man go we stop executing everyone, including her and her children.
    Laws are suppose to be common among us and deal with moral approval, manner and an order of what is naturally moral for all human beings...all the time.
    Especially with women and her children, we as the wise, did not make her a Jezebel...or when we found her labeled as a Jezebel did not close up our hearts and eyes and walk to the edge of the town fearing she is diseased becuase she chose to be.We do all live relevant with time and what we found ourselves to be the first time...and not at the fault of our parents.
    The materialistic acts of man, are from the rearing of a materialistic mind.The pleasure seekers did not need avoid the lottery to prevent loss and depression...they needed be where there was none to begin with.
    Job 8:9
    for we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, for our days on earth are a shadow.
    The word "for" here, is a transitive verb determining the need for an object. An objective life must be lived among objective people.
    The Catholic have been obejctive for more years than I need count...and we still may see a future increase in crime down that road in time...or too late.
    Some abstract concept for the mind. I am free and not at liberty from worrying about the coming days...even though I know the difference.
