When we attribute foreknowledge to God, we mean that all things have ever been, and perpetually remain, before His eyes, so that to His knowledge nothing is future or past, but all things are present: and present in such a manner that He does not merely conceive of them from ideas formed in His mind, as things remembered by us appear present to our minds, but really beholds and sees them as if actually placed before Him. And this foreknowledge extends to the whole world and to all the creatures. Predestination we call the eternal decree of God, by which He hath determined in Himself what He would have to become of every individual of mankind. For they are not all created with a similar destiny; but eternal life is foreordained for some, and eternal damnation for others.

“My approach to this game is that I’m too blessed to be stressed,” he said. “I don’t worry about that. We’ve got a Game 7. This is not faith. This is free will. We’ve got to go get it. You can’t pray to God and say, ‘Oh God, help me’ and hope that we win. That’s why I say you’ve got to go get it.”

GAME SEVEN!

Anyone’s game to step up and be the man. Shit God Damn.

1. Delonte West was having a relationship with Lebron James for the last 18 months. That news was well known, that James found out after game four, leading to his mental breakdown in the series — we have our sources, but Calvin Murphey has already been talking about it to who ever will listen to him — being a free throw champion has an expiration date and this, this is one of the best stories in the NBA ever.

If it did happen or it didn’t (though we are sure that it did) what remains is an texturally rich tapestry to explore of sexuality and greater duty. Was Jamed right to throw the last two games? Should his teammates should have said something earlier? Does a mother need to be a desexualized creature to maintain a nurturing relationship? And so on and so forth.
