2 Corinthians 3:5-6

Not that we are competent of ourselves to claim anything as coming from us; our competence is from God, who has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of letter but of spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

"Looks like the people are rising up and tearing down the sacred nigger. Boon Panther ..."

The truth will only kill us ..."
"...and cops have the audacity to complain that people don't consider them perfect, unquestionable heroes. ..."

The truth will only kill us ..."
"I thought it was only 2000 years"

The truth will only kill us ..."
"Meanwhile, it's starting to look like Colorado is going to be on fire this year ..."

The truth will only kill us ..."

    Pretty sure “t”s should be kept at arms length…

  • It’s clearly not talking about that kind of letter (literally?). Obviously, it’s a reference to “Death Note”.

    If you have too much T and not enough P, you could get very sick I’m sure.
