Years in the Making...

TAC (to avoid confusion), my birth name is Norman David Eddings. My PEN name is Eddie because that name was given to me in the penitentiary. Not really. It is just a catchier moniker...besides, people would naturally call me that with an Eddings last name. So now that I have finally graduated to a Theological Fancy Pants level, I can carve out a place in the Christian community. I can make a difference with the Greek alphabet, a dozen Latin phrases or so, and using Theological terms that I have to immediately explain.

From the Laodicean Hymn Book...

 
Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature's night;
Thine eye diffused a quick'ning ray,
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
My chains fell off, my heart was free;
I rose, went forth and watched TV.

Book 39


                                       Additional Warning to the Priests

“And now, you priests, this warning is for you. If you do not listen, and if you do not resolve to honor my name,” says the Lord Almighty, “I will send a curse on you, and I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have already cursed them, because you have not resolved to honor me.
“Because of you I will rebuke your descendants[a]; I will smear on your faces the dung from your festival sacrifices, and you will be carried off with it. And you will know that I have sent you this warning so that my covenant with Levi may continue,” says the Lord Almighty. “My covenant was with him, a covenant of life and peace, and I gave them to him; this called for reverence and he revered me and stood in awe of my name. True instruction was in his mouth and nothing false was found on his lips. He walked with me in peace and uprightness, and turned many from sin.
“For the lips of a priest ought to preserve knowledge, because he is the messenger of the Lord Almighty and people seek instruction from his mouth. But you have turned from the way and by your teaching have caused many to stumble; you have violated the covenant with Levi,” says the Lord Almighty. “So I have caused you to be despised and humiliated before all the people, because you have not followed my ways but have shown partiality in matters of the law.”
