My name is Elim. But that's not even my real name.

I might be fifteen or seventy.

I might be a man or a woman.

I might be black or white or Latino or Asian.

The truth is that you really don't know. Even if I told you, you still wouldn't know that that was the truth. So I might as well keep you guessing. Enjoy.

Godspeed,

Elim


"What I want to know is, out of the stories you've told me, which ones were true, and which ones weren't?"

"My dear doctor, they were all true."

"Even the lies?"

"Especially the lies."

Beautiful Jesus by D. A. Emme reviews
Each hit that Jesus took was for us. The nails driven into him was for us. He loves us that much. //The father took the belt to the little girl, and Jesus felt like each hit was a scar embedded in his heart.//
