    Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly…

    Colossians 3:16

    If the whole congregation of Israel sins unintentionally and the thing is hidden from the eyes of the assembly, and they do any one of the things that by the LORD’s commandments ought not to be done, and they realize their guilt…

    Leviticus 4:13
    • YHC encouraged the PAX to let Scripture dwell in them, and noted one gem he came across in Leviticus, pertaining to modern conversations of corporate guilt and injustice, further encouraging them to be mindful of sins society has as a group, and to work against them.


    • If you watch the music video for Paula Abdul’s “Opposites Attract” (the inspiration for this backblast’s title, see above), it raises more questions than it answers.
    • Huggies once again with the morale booster–calling out the percentage of manhood achieve by each PAX during the Man-Makers in the CoP.
    • YHC is a consistent contrarian, but what contrary conversation can one consistently carry to control the contrarian’s conniving?
