Pondering the Plagues

Here it is, my very first blog post ever! Hopefully I will be able to post often.

Right now I'm sitting here in the classroom during a break between teachers. Our topic this week is the book of Exodus. We just took a quick look at the 10 Plagues. It was quite interesting to me to find out that every single one of the plagues was directed at one or more of the gods of Egypt, showing their powerlessness in the face of the true God. (if you serve a god who controls the sky, for example, it would be rather embarassing if someone else's God darkens the sky with "a darkness that can be felt" for three whole days, and your god can't make the sun shine.)

Well, break time is over. Hopefully I can post more later today.
