En Finir Avec Eddy Bellegueule - Edouard Louis

Every once in a while, it just happens : Everyone raves over a book, then I read it - and find it actually IS every inch as magnificent as it was claimed to be!

Yet, this opus did not have much going for it, storywise. Autobiographical accounts of an outsider intellectual in a boorish, underprivileged smalltown family aren't exactly on top of my reading list, I can tell you. 
I can't bear pessimism, and before this, I wouldn't have thought it possible to tell this kind of story in an objective mindset, without poring over the sordid parts, especially as the story is the author's own.

No whining, then! A clear-eyed, detached view on his family, expressed in a dispassionate but elegant voice. 
No wonder he has won so many awards. All well-deserved.

  1. NO VOTE WILL BE TAKEN ON JUDGMENT DAY BY STEVE FINNELL
    There are many who believe that when judgment day arrives; that, majority opinion will determine entry into heaven. Many people believe that God will not send people to hell just because they reject Jesus as the Christ.


    Acts 4:10-12 ....by the name of Jesus Christ....12 And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.


    On judgment day, some would have you believe there will be a listed ballot from which you can cast your vote for the Savior of your choice.


    CHECK THE REDEEMER OF YOUR CHOICE


    1. Jesus
    2. Kiou-tse
    3. Kriskna
    4. Dhouvanai
    5. Horus
    6. Balder
    7. Hiram Abiff
    8. Sosiosch
    9. None of the above.


    There is just one choice "JESUS." That selection has to be made prior to judgment day.


    THERE WILL NOT BE A SAVIOR VOTE TAKEN ON JUDGMENT DAY!


    Many also believe God gives believer in Christ "multiple choice" plans of salvation from which to cast a vote.


    1. The grace only plan.
    2. The faith only plan.
    3. The sinner's prayer plan.
    4. The good works plan.
    5. The water baptism only plan.
    6. The confessing Jesus as the Christ only plan.
    7. The repentance only plan.
    8. The deathbed conversion plan.
    9. The universal plan of salvation.


    THERE WILL BE NO VOTE TAKEN, ON JUDGMENT DAY. THERE IS JUST ONE PLAN OF SALVATION..


    There is one way to be saved.
    FAITH: John 3:16
    REPENTANCE: Acts 3:19, Acts 2:38
    CONFESSION: Romans 10:9-10, Acts 8:37
    WATER IMMERSION: Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16, John 3:5, Titus 3:5, Acts 22:16, Galatians 3:27, Romans 6:4, Colossians 2:12-13, Ephesians 5:25-27, 1 Peter 3:20-21.
    ALL OF THESE ARE ESSENTIAL IN ORDER TO BE SAVED. Then remain faithful: Revelation 2:10


    THERE WILL BE NO VOTE TAKEN ON JUDGMENT DAY!


    Matthew 7:13-14 "Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. 14 For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.


    There are 2.2 billion people who claim they are Christians. Do you believe that they will all enter through that narrow gate? If not, why not?


    ON JUDGMENT DAY THERE WILL BE NO MAJORITY VOTE TAKEN TO DETERMINE WHO WILL BE SAVED!


    JESUS HAS THE ONLY VOTE THAT WILL BE COUNTED!
