    Kumarmani, Thank you for your comments. There are plenty more words, too many, that are not listed in that wondrous book.

    from: i gotQuestions.org :

    Book of Life

    Question: What is the Book of Life?

    Answer: Revelation 20: 15 declares, “If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” The Book of Life, in this context, is the set of names of those who will live with God forever in heaven. It is the roll of those who are saved. This Book of Life is also mentioned in Revelation 3: 5; 20: 12; and Philippians 4: 3. The same book is also called the Lamb’s Book of Life because it contains the names of those who have been redeemed by the blood of the Lord Jesus (Revelation 13: 8; 21: 27) .
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    BUT there are other 'books of life listed in Google!

    i assume from the title that the above Book is the one referred to. i don't have to look! you won't find my name in it, unless 'they' changed the rules.

    ACLU.................. cute! but THAT is Heaven; this is Mankind's realm for now: Earth. we NEED those things, OR there could be more serious problems here. i'm just glad you did not put, under U, underwear. So, ...... i guess the angels DO wear underwear?
