Depending on how old you are, it may surprise you to learn that Adventure Time was a lot of people's entryway into the world of Cartoon Network. Introduced in 2010, the fantasy series about a 12-year old boy named Finn and his magical talking dog, Jake, fighting evil and having adventures in the Land of Ooo, is beloved for its animation style, original music (some songs are even having a second life as TikTok songs!), bizarre characters, timeless life lessons, and groundbreaking queer rep (between a rock-music-playing vampire and bubblegum princess, no less!). If you've still never made the time to watch it, the (Adventure) time is now!
Debuting in 1997, Cow and Chicken was one of the earliest absurd cartoons of Cartoon Network's offerings, a precursor to all of the absurdity that was to come. Cow and Chicken are a brother and sister, whose parents are somehow human. Little sister Cow drives Chicken crazy as the two navigate daily shenanigans at home, school, and dealing with the Red Guy, a devilish character with buttcheeks that are entirely too pronounced. It's easier to escape from their issues when Cow morphs into her alter ego, Supercow, wearing a purple supersuit with holes for her udders and granting her superpowers, including the ability to suddenly speak Spanish.
In Isaiah 1:16, 17, 18, 19a Jehovah says that what Judah needed was not to continue to multiply sacrifices, prayers, etc, but a new heart which would be the source of new attitudes and new actions (toward evil, good, justice, ruthlessness, orphans, widows) that truly honor God. A broken and contrite heart (Ps 51:17) that yields its rights and will to the rights and will of the Most High God and brings forth fruit in keeping with such a change in thinking (repentance) is what constitutes real worship (real sacrifices, celebrations of feasts, prayers, etc) to God.
Jeremiah 4:14 Wash (Imperative mood - a command; Heb = kabas not rahas - it means to trample = this is how clothes were washed in ancient times) your heart from evil, O Jerusalem, that you may be saved. How long will your wicked thoughts lodge within you?
And done this evil in Thy sight. To commit treason in the very court of the King and before His eye is impudence indeed: David felt that his sin was committed in all its filthiness while Jehovah Himself looked on (Pr 15:3, 5:21-note). None but a child of God cares for the eye of God, but where there is grace in the soul it reflects a fearful guilt upon every evil act, when we remember that the God whom we offend was present when the trespass was committed. That thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. He could not present any argument against divine justice, if it proceeded at once to condemn him and punish him for his crime. His own confession, and the judge's own witness of the whole transaction, places the transgression beyond all question or debate; the iniquity was indisputably committed, and was unquestionably a foul wrong, and therefore the course of justice was clear and beyond all controversy.
That I might not sin against thee. Here was the object aimed at. As one has well said, -- Here is the best thing -- "thy word"; hidden in the best place, -- "in my heart;" for the best of purposes, -- "that I might not sin against thee." (Ps 119:11) This was done by the Psalmist with personal care, as a man carefully hides away his money when he fears thieves, -- in this case the thief dreaded was sin. Sinning "against God" is the believer's view of moral evil; other men care only when they offend against men. God's word is the best preventive against offending God, for it tells us his mind and will, and tends to bring our spirit into conformity with the divine Spirit. No cure for sin in the life is equal to the word in the seat of life, which is the heart. There is no hiding from sin unless we hide the truth in our souls.
From My sight - All evil no matter how secret we might think it before men is open scandal in heaven for all sin is against God and blatantly in His line of sight (cp Ge 39:9, Neh 5:15, Ge 20:6, Nathan the prophet to David after sin with Bathsheba - 2Sa 12:9, 10, 11,12, 13, 14 then came David's cry of confession in Ps 51:4-note). This alone should cause us to be careful how we walk (cp Eph 5:15-note, 1Pe 1:17-note)
When my computer greeted me this morning with what is ominously referred to as "the blue screen of death," I knew it was broken, but I didn't know how to fix it. I read a little, tried a few things, but finally had to call an expert for help. Knowing that something was wrong was only a small part of the problem; I couldn't fix it because I didn't know the right thing to do. The ordeal reminded me of the many pundits who appear on television news programs. All of them are "experts" at proclaiming what's wrong, but most are clueless as to what is right. This happens in relationships as well. In families, churches, and workplaces, nothing gets fixed because we get fixated on what's wrong. It doesn't take an expert to know that something is wrong when people quarrel and hurt each other with unkind words and behavior. But it does take an expert to know how to fix the problem. God revealed to Israel's prophets not only what was wrong but also what was right: "Cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice, rebuke the oppressor; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow" (Isa.1:16,17). Instead of focusing on what is wrong, let's obey the One who knows what is right. - Julie Ackerman Link (Our Daily Bread, Copyright RBC Ministries, Grand Rapids, MI. Reprinted by permission.

Many people who make sure they wash their hands before they eat are careless about a far more serious kind of contamination. They should heed the advice of Isaiah. He showed God's people the visible evidence of their evil condition. He pointed to their crumbling society and told them it was the result of their moral and spiritual pollution. They had lived for selfish rewards, ignored justice and mercy, and loved material possessions more than people. No wonder Isaiah exhorted them, "Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean" (Isa. 1:16).
Sin is thus pictured as being indelible as far as human efforts to remove it are concerned. There is nothing man himself can do to change his evil nature and turn it into the white purity of holiness. God alone has the power to erase the terrible stain of our sin.

If you are able to go to church on Sunday, you probably will. For most Christians, it's almost automatic -- and rightly so. But is it possible that our efforts to go to church for worship might be wasted? Could it all be in vain? Yes. Before we even enter the church, the worth of our worship can be reduced to nothing because of the way we've lived during the week. In Amos 5 (Amos 5:21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27), the Lord had some harsh words for those who attempted to worship Him while bringing with them the guilt of an ungodly lifestyle. His people were constantly angering Him by following false gods (Amos 5:26). When they assembled to worship the Lord through sacrifices and songs, God despised their hypocrisy. In Isaiah 1, God instructed His people that before they could worship Him, they were to "cease to do evil, learn to do good; seek justice" (Isa 1:16, 17).
by Walter Chaw Roxanne Benjamin's There's Something Wrong with the Children is a tired retread in the folk-horror category of evil children that doesn't break any new ground and certainly doesn't tread any old ground with anything resembling energy or invention. It's just lugubriously competent, cozy in the way of a broken-in boot or a well-loved terrycloth robe--an "I'll be right back, you don't need to pause it" movie. Indeed, one doesn't need to pause it. For what it's worth, the best evil-kid movie is probably Narciso Ibáñez Serrador's Who Can Kill a Child?, although my favourite is the repugnant, deeply wrong 1981 Lew Lehman freakout The Pit. In that one, unhinged 10-year-old creeper Jamie (Sammy Snyders) discovers a pit in the middle of the forest behind his house that's swarming with carnivorous troglodytes he thinks are communicating with him through his teddy bear. Between feeding bullies and football players to the pit, Jamie spends his time making passes at his teen cheesecake babysitter and peeping on her while she's in the shower. Yes, that movie has it all. Alas, There's Something Wrong with the Children is aggressively forgettable, even freed of comparisons to films it's so obviously aping: a pair of evil kids, check; a pit in the forest full of evil? Check. Parents too wrapped up in their bougie bullshit to notice their offspring are breaking supernatural bad? Check. You've seen it. We've all seen it. Better versions.
Throughout the coverage period, members of the public frequently took to social media to organize protests against racial injustice and to provide support for the Black Lives Matter movement after the police killings of Black civilians Breonna Taylor in Kentucky and George Floyd in Minnesota in the spring of 2020.1 However, federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies increased their social media surveillance amid the protests (see C5).2 Reporting in June 2020 revealed that agents from a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) terrorism task force appeared at homes or workplaces to question four people in Cookeville, Tennessee, who were involved in planning Black Lives Matter rallies on Facebook.3 In North Carolina, the FBI questioned a man and his mother two days after he jokingly posted on Twitter that he was a local leader of antifa.4
Mr. Devil + Discordia + extra attacks = big pain. Ogre warlord skin is a great help. Otherwise bring Frost, the Snow Queen, Alexandria or others that heal your warlord (Dark Knight is also pretty great).
If you have no silencers, you need to kill the boss in 3 turns. This can be done by using Void Spirit as your Warlord and placing Bastet or Mr. Devil on the spikes on the 2nd row on Turn 1. You then place a strong Ranged unit just to the left of it that grants an extra turn, like Onmoraki. On Turn 3, you use both of the special use cards to freeze all opponents and summon the ranged demon. You then put Moody Ghost next to the other two units where it can hit the boss. If you get very lucky, the combined damage for the 5 shots will be enough to kill the boss. 2b1af7f3a8
