Although the title to this episode says it is the intro to the Royal Kingdom, in actuality it is the introduction to the Divided Kingdom.

Kèo tỷ số chính xác là một hình thức cá cược đòi hỏi sự tinh tế và hiểu biết sâu sắc về bóng đá. Trong mỗi trận đấu, từng chi tiết nhỏ nhất cũng có thể ảnh hưởng đến kết quả cuối cùng. Việc dự đoán đúng tỷ số chính xác đòi hỏi người chơi phải theo dõi cẩn thận các yếu tố như form của đội bóng, sự vắng mặt của cầu thủ chủ chốt, hoặc thậm chí là điều kiện thời tiết.

about calling no one father, they did not call Paul " father Paul". Paul also said that he was like father to them. The title is important. I am still not 100% with Cathokic Church argument in this matter.

An interesting theory on the "Sons of God". But there is much more evidence to the contrary: They were fallen angels(demons) called "Watchers" in the Book of Enoch. as well as Job confirmed that "sons of God" referred to angels/fallen angels when Satan entered Heaven along with them to present themselves to God.

In a very Toxic relationship with my husband, and 15:00-22:00 minutes helps me to explain how very sad it makes me that my husband, my brother , my friend is so very broken by today's social environment, it's pressures, and sexual expectations of woman... maybe one day my friend will come back and sacrifice, or be celebate for my friendship alone... otherwise, this relationship does not serve me according to my Lord and his teachings!

This passage today gave me strength. As a traditional Catholic living in a land where there is no traditional Latin Mass TLM it is hard, it is like living in exile. All faithful Catholics nowadays live in exile. Let's learn from Daniel!!
