On the car ride to school this morning, my high schooler described a current meme about everyone's grave being the same size.

Something like this:

And he said that people are countering this idea with pictures of pyramids and such.

"Well, of course," I said.

"I grew up next to a cemetery and we could tell from the size of the stones who had money. Ecclesiastes conveys this idea better when it says that both the wise and the fool end up in the same condition."

"But, that's not true," my son protested. "The fool goes to hell."

"The afterlife doesn't factor into the book's theology at all."

"Well, then, Ecclesiastes shouldn't be in the Bible!"

So, we didn't even get into the biblical truth behind the "I'm spending my children's inheritance" bumper sticker! Eccl. 2:18-19

Eccl. 2:16

Which son is this? How did he become so dogmatic?

My oldest. There's work to be done.

If you're at all interested in knowing . . . the Catholic Dogma . . . that we *must believe* to get to Heaven, and which you have *never* seen . . .

The Catholic God knows . . . what we think and believe . . .

Catholic writing of Romans 1:21 >
"They ... became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened."

Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Deuteronomy 31:21 >
"For I know their thoughts, and what they are about to do this day."

Catholic Faith (pre-fulfillment) writing of Job 21:27 >
"Surely I know your thoughts, and your unjust judgments against Me."

The group that calls itself "islam" ... is not a religion. Fully proven by the fact that the "koran" says the *opposite* of the Old Testament Prophets > Section 113 of the site.
