Gem of an epiphany from Catechism class tonight:

We were discussing and investigating the Apostle’s Creed, specifically the part where it says, “Was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead,” and considering what all of those parts meant for us as Christians.

Later as I was driving home I had a flash of understanding:

"When he died, he died for all our sins, being perfectly devoid of any sin of his own, and was thus condemned to hell (under the laws set forth in the Old Testament, thereby becoming our perfect sacrifice), and there remained for three days until he conquered death and rose again.

It is only by (and after) this act that salvation from hell is possible; which is why he went to hell in the first place, even though he is perfect and did not require a sacrifice of his own - which allows him to take on all sin and be the ultimate sacrifice.”

(Why is it so often while I’m driving that these moments of sharp clarity come to me?)

If Sam can overpower Lucifer
If Castiel can break free of angelic mind control
And if Dean can deal with John Winchester
then I can deal with school

On wearing shoes inside the home in America; Contrasting with specific references to Japanese cultural expectations:

It’s a hold-over from when shoes and pants/trousers/skirts were so intricate and difficult to don and doff, they were simply always kept on for simplicity. Can you imagine trying to bend over in a victorian corset, digging under the skirts without indecency, and unlatching the buckles, only to be too short because the skirt is hemmed to the appropriate length while wearing heels? It is unreasonable and unladylike. This is, of course, only the feminine half of the problem, the masculine half is nearly the same - but without risk of indecency and (usually) the hindrance of corsetry.

Though, I think the point here was the difference between expectations. In Japanese homes the expectation is that you will remove your shoes (even if you encounter the victorian era difficulties outlined above), while in America the expectation is to keep your shoes on (though most residents will remove their shoes for simplicity, guests usually do not). There are exceptions now though, as it is not (especially in today’s era of flip flops and slides) a strict cultural rule and the expectation has weakened and now is usually determined much more strongly by individual household preferences rather than “what is fashionable” or what traditional culture demands.

I think the same thing holds true in most European countries as it does in America (because of fashion traditions and such) - but having never even visited I can’t claim to know such things for sure.
