Why thank you Evil Twin and Madame Carnivore. I know you weren't defending me specifically, but I'm touched.
I should clarify despite what Tiger said with best intentions, we all try to adhere to our doctrines. But, there is no doctrine saying we go to Heaven because of works. It's like this. Humans have the gift of free will, which can't just vanish after you die. Therefor, you can choose to either to go to Heaven or Hell. If when you die, you've been being good recently, you will be more likely to find the idea of an eternity focusing on God appealing. Whereas, if you sinned recently (sin by definition means you chose something worldly over God) you are less likely to choose Heaven. Does that make sense?
So. Paul McCusker. My reaction:
I'm terribly sad to Paul go. He is one of the best things to happen to show. Right from the beginning, literally, his episodes have been some of the most reliable to provide a solid time and the occasional knockout episode. But the aio team isn't known for collapsing and moaning when change comes. They're known for rising to the challenge. Who knows what'll happen, where this will lead. I'm loving the relaunch, but we can all agree there's room for improvement. Things may be bumpy for a time, but that improvement might be in sight.
