This last week was a landmark week for me in some ways.

In most ways, it was just like any other week.  I went to work, did the fam thang, etc...

But this particular week, I submitted Chapter and Verse to Covenant Communications, on the good advice of my friend James.  Nothing ventured nothing gained, right?

We'll see if anything comes of it.  Thanks for all your support!

Sunday Scripture: John 17:3

#32 Know the Divine: John 17:3 “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."

One of the cool things about being the game designer is that you can inject personal things into your game.  Like, for example, when you come across a verse that is one of your favorites, and you think that it's one that everyone should be able to quote on a moment's notice, you can give it the "Quote" ability.

This is also one of the verses that was used in this last conference to refute those that claim that Mormons are not Christian.  The adherence to the Nicene Creed claims that God is "Unknowable".  But this verse shows that we can know God and Jesus on a very personal level.  Indeed, that knowing God is vital to our exaltation.

This verse implies that how well we know God will determine how qualified we are to become like Him.  Which only stands to reason.

In the game, this verse can be a powerful punch when combined with "#26 The Sealing Power" and "#84 The Testimony of Joseph".  These all have 4 points of Wisdom, and all have "Quote".  So, all you gotta do is learn these verses (which should be in your mind and hearts anyway), and you can throw down a Wisdom book for free!  Without quoting, you'd have to sacrifice six verses to get these three out.

Good gaming!
