11/13/22 Notice: Crucial update. In progress. Though it was my plan to be spending my time working on this, not in this way. I've been marooned on the side of the highway since Thursday with a broken axle. It's very cold here and for the last 18 hours we have been getting bludgeoned from the rear by High gusts. But we spent the time working on updating this crucial work that began to show itself weeks ago. Using the Fairly public domain Gutenberg edition of the Bible these recent days have been going through it and placing in bold what James experiences as his study guide and oh my goodness it continues to open his eyes to what the man Jesus was and taught. They're in front of me all my life obscured by mountains of manure from the popes, preachers, bishops, john, paul, luther, calvin, supposed miracles, what's the profess.... The pearls worth any price in bold at the following link. Although this blog post has not yet been updated it will be done so from the passages in bold on this complete unedited version of the Bible just referenced.

since my earliest memories as a child I thought that Jesus had the most joyful life of anyone that ever lived. To love the world that much, what could be better than that? At about 22 years ago I began to live based on that conviction. And I've had a life of joy, and the agony which is its fuel, ever since. And I want as much of that as I can get so in September of 2022 I wanted to get closer, and I asked myself, what did Jesus tell me about how to be presumably the most joyful thing in the universe, a living child of the almighty, pleasing to the almighty, one of Jesus siblings that he frequently spoke of, and I went through verse by verse as though I were creating a study guide for the examination that I imagine Almighty is making up my life every breath. For the joy of it. And my weekly study of what resulted has increased my usefulness and joy here on Earth immeasurably already. And I expect it will for as many days months or years until my sentence is over.In the order in which they were written, chapters 1 through 4:

THE GOSPEL OF MARK..
I came not to call the righteous, but to call sinners to repentance..
Then Jesus said to them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? To save life, or to kill? But they remained silent.
Jesus looked at them with anger and was grieved for the hardness of their hearts.
But he that blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never have forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation. He said this because they said, He has an unclean spirit.
Whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.
Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts.When affliction or persecution arises for the word's sake, they are offended. And these are also the seed sown among the thorns of the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things. All these thorns enter in, choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
Those who are sown on good ground. In hearing the word, they receive it and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundredfold.
The disciples went out and preached that men should repent.
This people honor me with their lips but their heart is far from me.
In vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
In laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups and many other things that ye do.
And He said to them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God in order to keep your own tradition.
The things which come out of him are those that defile the man. It is from inside, out of the heart of men, that proceed: evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness,
