Did the changing not happen? was it not fully effective? are the rules that lax?

Make it more practical. Person gets saved at a young age, 4, 5, 6…then they grow up and “learn” to sin.

Were they saved? Are they still saved? Have they any hope of being re-saved?

etc

They said of Agatho that for three years he kept a stone in his mouth in order to teach himself silence.

And:

A brother questioned Abba Hierax saying, “Give me a word. How can I be saved?” The old man said to him, “Sit in your cell, and if you are hungry, eat; if you are thirsty, drink; only do not speak evil of anyone, and you will be saved.”

Comment on Another Look: A Word about Words by Charles Fines http://www.internetmonk.com/archive/52647/comment-page-1#comment-941849 Thu, 20 Nov 2014 17:21:58 +0000 http://www.internetmonk.com/?p=52647#comment-941849 w~ A time honored tradition when a poem doesn’t come with a title is to use the first line or part of it, in this case “Out of the Heart Pours My Tongue” or “Out of the Heart”. An alternative would be to use a line or phrase from within the poem, possibly “Love Is the Way” or “Soft Is the Whisper” or “You Supply My Every Need” or the one that jumps out at you.

Speaking of alternatives, if you should ever make your way up in my neck of the woods, I have alternative drinks for those on a regimen, as does the communion tray we share at church. As an old English major, I continue to delight in your ear for rhyme, which often takes some unexpected turns that are very hard to pull off, and which can’t easily be learned in a classroom.
