Chapter 90: The value of life

The Bacon Gospels -- Buy 'em!

1 Then said Jesus unto his warriors, If any man will come after me, let him embolden himself, and take up his sword, and follow me.

2 For whosoever will not risk his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find eternal reward.

3 For what is a man profited, if he shall turn his back on the whole world, and live in fear?or what shall a man give in exchange for his life?

4 For the Warrior for man shall come in the glory of his Father with his avenging angels; and then he shall preserve every man according to his defenses.

5 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall taste of death, if they see not the Warrior for man's teachings in their kingdom.
