 A pale imitation of the greatest of Goya's "black paintings" (which made a profound impression on me when I was about 8 or 9)... in a book called Art Without Epoch

 I have not seen the original, but but your imitation leaves the same impression.

 The god of time, Saturn (aka Chronos) ate his kids so they wouldn't grow up an depose him. I think he may have unsexed his own dad too. Don't mess with Time. (But he'll get you anyway even if you don't)

 Time is most unbreakable of laws and but everyone gets executed regardless.

 Too sleepy... too many misprints... getting late...

 It's tomorrow now, and being somewhat refreshed & relatively clear-headed, I realize it wasn't at all clear what this guy has to do with the Law. Well...

 Judgement Day was the starting point — You know, the Last Judgement, when souls of the departed are sorted out, and the ones too bruised or stale get tossed down to the devil...

 ...and when the angels get tired of shoveling those heavy sodden souls guilts of gluttony (a mortal sin, lest ye forget), they take a break and fling down some unbaptized infants...

 ...towards the eternal damnation awaiting those of us who've not yet made peace with our Maker and have now lost our chance forever...
11. chelydra wrote:
 ...unless our friends and family light a whole lot of candles to please the saints who might intervene for us (if they notice and feel like it)...
12. chelydra wrote:
 So anyway, since damnation makes for more impressive imagery than salvation, I started looking around to get some ideas for Satan...

 ...but found Saturn, caught in the act of devouring one of his own little kids—probably the most hellish image ever painted.
14. chelydra wrote:
 So if you haven't repented of your sins lately, or if you've neglected to get the kids baptized, you better do so. Cuz you never know when Judgement Day might dawn.

 And in the meantime, judge not others, because it's not your job (unless it is your job).

 All clear now!

 By the grace of the God of Love , whose mercy endureth forever. The meaning of "forever" seems to be unclear...
20. chelydra wrote:
 But it was formerly understood that God forever-enduring mercy was reserved for the 144,000 souls who had earned it. (Can mercy be earned? Well, maybe they were predestined to get it. Anyway...)
21. chelydra wrote:
 Once the Jehovah's Witnesses realized they'd have to stop recruiting soon (no more salvation to offer after meeting their quota of souls), they decided that Biblical limitation must've been a misprint or a momentary lapse in divine inspiration.
22. chelydra wrote:
 But whether it's 144,000 or 144 million or 144 or 1.44 souls that get treated mercifully, the point is that God's mercy may last forever in time, but that doesn't mean everybody gets the same dose.

 But nevertheless, it's best to play it safe. He knows if you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake! (in the immortal words of Haven Gillespie 1934)

  i think it all boils down to the unbreakable law that we reap what we sow.. if we find we are unable to sow good things we must be consumed with fear... it is that very fear of reaping that is the beginning of wisdom... those..
25. evefoster wrote:
 those who we chosen know who they are... one of the greatest indicators that you just might be .. is one's inability to stop pondering what is truth, what is God, who is God...then the drive to understand the difference between
26. evefoster wrote:
 who we really are, spirit versus..flesh..and the desire to be holy in the mind/spirit..and to cut of the slavery of the lusts of the flesh from our thinking and doing

 i think those who end up in hell are those who have zero desire to know love ..who chose evil as their comforting blanket...but what do I know...
