In his apologia, Dewey patiently tried to mention that Ephesians 1:5and 11 both mention "Predestination." However, Mr. Reeks was prepared for this defense and quicky pulled out "The Message" and read to the Court somwhere in the middle of 3-6, "When he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love..." and then somewhere near the end of 11-12, "He had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone." He crowed, "You see members of the diaconate and your honor...this so-called Bible scholar doesn't even know His Bible!"
Yeah, The Message ahould be called "The MESS-age"!!
We can only imagine what the Ventriloquist "Voice" (version?) would say for these passages! Unless someone has it online (I would never give a wooden nickel...sorry Cotton), I may never know. Maybe we could have a seance and get it directly from its source? Maybe the Ventriloquist "Voice" (version?) would say something like this (between 1-96), "When the Great Spirit meditated on what might happen if he loved something that he believed he may have organized enough, then just maybe...they might just get back to him with brilliant beams of intelligent bliss..." Followed later by (between 33 -292), "His navel began to take a pattern to his imagery sensor of a great idea that just might happen if he could make it work without upsetting their free spiritness..."
I can help but laugh right now...Hahahaha!
