Baptism for the Dead


Baptism for the Dead

“Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?” 1 Corinthians 15:29


Even after we agreed it was over,

with that phone call three days before Christmas,

you kept tabs. Watched, occasionally.

Liked a Facebook post.


Today was warm enough to drive with the top down.

So many trick-or-treaters tonight, all so creative!

There is a God…met a cute gaymer guy.

You don’t like this. Instead,


you write privately to say:

I’m happy for you, but

I’m concerned.


Have you truly judged the moral character of this person?

His page (yes, I looked it up) has a picture of him

holding a Zima.

An impaired mind is an impaired heart,

and I know this is true.


I don’t write back.
