My very good friend is planning an act of violence/vengeance at this moment -not in his mind, but in person with those who will carry it out.

Lord, have Mercy.

if Christ does and says x. And someone else does and says not x and you are ever in doubt, follow Christ.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Lord, have mercy. Please protect those in harm's way and guide your children back to you. In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

Lord, have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
