Interesting findings

Some things I found interesting today:

The word porn (I assume) comes from the Greek word porneia. (By the way, I'm getting this tidbit from my new Ignatius Catholic Study Bible New Testament!) It is used by Jesus as the "exception" for divorce, and is translated there (Matthew 19:9) as unchastity. In other instances, it is translated as adultery and harlotry, and can also refer to incest. Bascially, one should want nothing to do with porneia (or porn).

The Manutergium was once used during the ordination of priests. Check out this cool tradtion and watch the video of hands becoming beautiful!

  1. I saw someone with that study Bible. It looks awesome!

    BTW, I believe the Greek word is also where we get "fornication" from, so we ought to avoid that too!
