Personal note from Brother Harry:
Beloved sister in the Lord, don't you want to be one of the very few upright women on planet earth? Then show your unconditional love for Jesus Christ by obeying all the ~180 New Testament commandments that apply to a single woman or a wife, whichever the case may be. You will be very glad that you did when you get to heaven---for all eternity. Really.
