Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head:
The apostles: Peter bailed on Jesus. Paul killed Christians. All of the apostles slept through Jesus’ darkest hour, then bailed on him in his moment of great need in the garden. The apostle John was pretty fucking awesome. I want to be like him. Love is the answer.
