    Default Pilgrim's bliss!!!!

    "Thus far did I come laden with my Sin;
    Nor could ought ease the grief that I was in,
    Till I came hither: What a place is this!
    Must here be the beginning of my bliss?
    Must here the Burden fall from off my back?
    Must here the strings that bound it to me crack?
    Blest Cross! blest Sepulchre! blest rather be
    The Man that there was put to Shame for me!"

    Jond Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress"

    What a wonderful description of the relief God gives us through the Lord Jesus Christ!!!!
    God bless.

    It is a real shame that young people today miss out on this wonderful book. For me, the King James sounding language makes this book more appealing. The modern versions of this book ruin a lot of the cleverly worded phrases that John Bunyan used. It's really not that hard to get into once you start.
    We need to get kids off the PCs, TVs and cell phones and back to some great books!!!! They don't know what they're missing.
    God bless, my friend.
