    Oh no. A concept. By a writer. Skeery. Sounds kinda liberal. You better be ready to hand out hugs if you're going to be talking so radical. :p

    How can we sing the Lord’s song In a foreign land? [Psalm 37:4]

    No way at all, apparently, since there is no such thing as a foreign land.

    But God spoke to this effect, that his descendants would be aliens in a foreign land, and that they would be enslaved and mistreated for four hundred years [Acts 7:6].

    I guess old Bobby Stevenson and his boy on BB here finally clinched it-- this described incident didn't happen, as so many claim.

    Of course, it was created that way and the ideal. All different languages in broken off land masses under different Kings.

    I call Italy! Only because it's shaped like a boot and screams "Kick everyone out!"

    Actually, I wonder if Italy could be totally self sufficient. I never looked that up. Hrm. I don't know. It sure is pretty in some areas I've seen pictures of! Oh now I'm distracted and must go look up pictures of a remote Italian village...
