WHAT ABOUT THE SO-CALLED ‘INHERITED SIN’ OF OUR FOREFATHERS? (Ex. 20:1-6.)
‘Deliverance experts’ insist that, even after we were redeemed, saved, and blessed in Christ as His personally born again children, (Gal. 3:10-18,) who live inside His spiritual Kingdom of Light and Liberty, (1 Pt. 2:9-10,) we kept the “inherited sin of our forefathers.” Thus, just like unbelievers, we “remain guilty of all their atrocities,” which keep us under the so-called “generational curse” of Ex. 20:3-5. They recite uncontextual, Old Testament verses to teach that those ‘curses’ on believers must be ‘broken’ and the demons that “live in believers,” must be “cast out” by special, expert ‘deliverance ministers.’
As usual, church clergy manufactured this ‘inherited sin/generational curse’ dogma by taking Ex. 20:1-6 out of context. God actually said in Ex. 20:1, “I Am the Lord your God Who brought you out of... the house of bondage. [The Hebrews were fully delivered when God took them out of Egypt, which is the symbol of the rebirth of sincere believers in Christ.] In 1 Pt. 2:9-10, God “called [all true believers] spiritually out of darkness, [bondage, and cursedness] into His Kingdom of Light.” As a result, every sincere believer is personally delivered from all spiritual bondage, lostness, and cursedness. This is so because in Jesus Christ, “sincere believers have, [present tense,] the forgiveness of [all their own sins…] (Eph. 1:7.) Paul explained in Eph. 1:12-14, “Believers who [personally] trusted in Christ… after they heard the... Gospel of salvation… having [personally] believed, were sealed with the Holy Spirit… Who is the Guarantee of their inheritance until the [physical] redemption, [at death or Jesus’ return,] of [His blood-cleansed,] purchased possession…” (Jn. 1:12-14; Col. 2:9-15.)
Thus, true disciples of Jesus are “possessed” or fully indwelt by the Holy Spirit as His temple from the moment they “believed” and accepted Jesus, which is the Scriptural rebirth, (1 Cor. 6:15-20.) How then, can they share in anyone’s sin? They do not even have a slither of sin, as they were totally cleansed by Jesus’ blood when they accepted Him and His full atonement in their place! Of course, this excludes the sin they commit after their rebirth, (Jn. 3:3-5; 1 Jn. 1:8-10.)
Deliverance, salvation, and blessing have always been a personal decision by accepting Christ, (Deut. 28.) Hence, it was also observed as an Old Testament/Covenant principle of the Moral Law, (which governs both Testaments, Jn. 13:34,) that “fathers [shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall children be put to death for their fathers; a person shall be put to death for his own sin,” (Lev. 24:16.) “The soul who sins [unrepentantly] shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself [only,] and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself [only…] ‘Do I have any pleasure at all that the wicked shall die,’ asks the Lord God, ‘And not that he should turn from his ways and live? But [if] the righteous turns away from righteousness and commits iniquity [unrepentantly,] shall they live? His righteousness shall [then] not be remembered…’” (Ezk. 18:20-24.)
DID GOD ‘CURSE’ BELIEVERS FOR THE SIN OF THEIR FOREFATHERS IN SPITE OF HIS TRUTH?
“If the son shall not bear the guilt of the father,” it is ridiculous to make Jesus’ believers think God cursed them in Ex. 20:1-6 for the “sin of their forefathers,” which supposedly ‘opened doors’ for demons to indwell the Spirit’s temple!
Jesus declared in Gal. 3:10-18 that He “became a curse [as He carried the entire cursed state of Deut. 28 on the cross in our place,] so that [every sincere believer] could [freely] inherit [the entire position] of blessedness in Him,” (Eph. 1:7; 9-14.) The Spirit Filled Bible 1991 footnote, 2 Cor. 5:21, teaches, “’God made [the sinless Jesus] sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him,’ does not mean He became a [demoniac on the cross.] It means God does not impute, [charge or ascribe] our [previous state of bondage and] cursedness to us, (Deut. 28.) Instead, He imputed the [position of] cursedness to Jesus at the cross, so we can freely inherit Abraham’s [position of redemption and] blessedness through Christ.” Thus, there is absolutely no doubt that believers are fully blessed in Christ, (Eph. 1:7; 12-14!)
After God allegedly “cursed believers through the sin of their ancestors” in Ex. 20:3-5, He promised in Ex. 20:6, “But I will show mercy to thousands who [agape] Me and keep my [Moral Law] commandments.” Note that God did not refer to “cursed” or even blessed “generations.” “Thousands who love Him” are personal believers through the ages.
Yet, the principle of being personally delivered, blessed, and sanctified in Jesus, and how this spiritual position affect their children, is demonstrated in 1 Cor. 7:12-16, where Paul wrote, “The unbelieving spouse is sanctified, [made holy not saved,] by the believing spouse; otherwise their children would be [spiritually] unclean, but now they are holy!” The children of unbelievers and false believers are ‘unholy’ and share in their position of lostness and cursedness, (Rom. 5:12: Deut 28.) However, the children of true believers share in their born again parents’ position of holiness and thus, in their blessedness. Note that Paul was not referring to the “automatic salvation” or “blessing” of next generations. This is about how the sanctified position of saved spouses affect their unsaved, and thus unholy spouses and children.
Note that nothing had to be “cast out” from “deliverers” so that the holy spouse could live with the unholy one, to make the children ‘holy.’ This is another work of grace from God, Who “shows mercy to thousands who love Him and keep His commandments,” (Ex. 20:6.) While God works like this in families for the sake of truly born again believers and their children, it is not the so-called “salvation by birthright” that some church denominations teach. Redemption, salvation, and blessing under Jesus’ New Covenant is a rational, personal choice — and these attributes are all inseparable ‘components’ of His full atonement in our place. For instance, the “holy” children of the saved spouse, once they reach the age of accountability and can understand the Gospel, become responsible for their own decisions to either accept or reject Jesus, (Jn. 1:12-14.) The same principle applies to the “holy” but unsaved spouses of believers, (1 Cor. 7:12-16.) No one can be saved through the faith of believing disciples or anyone else, (Deut. 14:16; Ezk. 18:20.) This is not to say that children before the age of accountability go to hell should they die prematurely. Jesus blessed the “little children” to go to heaven, (Mt. 19:13-15.)
WHAT ABOUT THE ALLEGED ‘EVIL BLOODLINE’ THAT WE MUST ‘CUT OFF?’
In Ex. 20:2 God commanded, “You [fully redeemed] shall have no other gods besides Me.” Items made for occult, ancestor, church, and temple rituals have demons attached to them that execute curses or demonic works from the spirit world. They are “cursed objects.” (‘Good luck’ is just another curse.) Christian artefacts such as images ‘of Jesus,’ Mary statues, angels, crosses, (used as good luck charms,) prayer beads, etcetera, fall into this criterion. Thus, objects made for occult and church worship cannot be “cleansed” or made holy by thanksgiving, prayer, and dedication to God, like we can do with food that was dedicated to demons, (1 Tim. 4:5.) These “carved images” were objects “made to bow down to,” (normal art excluded.) So, God referred to them in Ex. 20:3-5 as “other gods.” These religious and other items are cursed and must be destroyed. They were manufactured for Satanism and so, demons have the right to cling to them, (1 Cor. 10:19-22; Deut. 7:25-26.) That is why demons can “curse” or bring ‘bad luck’ to the lives of those who keep such objects. This manifest in illness, disasters, etcetera, and on a mental level in disturbed beliefs and disturbed behavior.
On the other hand, God’s created creatures and objects such as crystals, shells, plants, trees, etcetera can be cleansed by prayer and dedicated to God. There is no such thing as evil food, birds, animals, crystals, or any other created thing, (1 Tim. 4:5.) Satan has no right to turn anything that the Almighty God created so “very good” into worship for himself.
· So, there is no such thing that God placed a ‘physical’ curse on the “bloodline,” bones,” or “bodies” of people, or on anything else that He created “very good.” God’s creation itself cannot be cursed! God cursed “the ground to bring forth weeds” at the fall; not all of creation. Sinful man perverted God’s creation, but creation itself, (our physical bodies too,) remained ‘very good’ and holy. Satanists have no right to attack God’s creation and creatures, unless humans dedicate it to him. And what they have dedicated against God’s Word, can be cleansed by prayer and thanksgiving.
In contrast to Roman Catholic and other pagan beliefs, animal and human flesh in itself is totally sinless and cannot be “evil” or cursed. Thus, under the Old Testament Covenant, animals could be sacrificed to “cover” the sin of the Old Hebrews as symbols of Jesus’ Eternal Sacrifice. This is how the “begotten” Jesus was born absolutely sinless from a completely human mother that was born into a spiritual state of sin, while her physical body remained untainted, (Rom. 5:12.) Sin emanates from the spirit world. It lives in the “spiritually dead” human spirits and ‘minds;’ the sinful thoughts and beliefs of unbelievers - and of false ‘believers. The sinless human body itself may carry natural diseases and physical inherited traits, but definitely not, on a physical level such as a ‘bloodline,’ spiritual uncleanness and curses. Spirit answers to spirit and what is flesh remains flesh, (1 Cor. 15:39-54.) As said, what was dedicated to Satan in this area, can be “cleansed” by Jesus’ atonement.
· That is why, there is no such thing as a “cursed bloodline.” The bloodline was created by God. We can never “cut off” our physical ‘bloodline,’ and God certainly does not expect us to attempt any such silly thing. We remain human until we die; the sinful ways and thoughts of the world must go out of our “minds” and beliefs. If we were born African or European, we will remain what we are as long as we are alive on this side of the grave. We cannot and do not become physical Hebrews or Messianic Jews when we accept Jesus. Hence, believing Gentiles cannot have ‘Hebrew ancestry’ and we must not call God by His ‘Hebrew’ Names. We have all His Names in intelligible English in the New Testament, which God is utterly capable of understanding.
God did not pronounce “bloodline curses” over anyone in Ex. 20:1-6! In Ex. 20:5, He spoke of “iniquities,” saying idolatrous behavior or “iniquities visit” the next generations. Sinners who prove their hatred for God and people through their bad “fruit,” actually pass their bad behavior [or iniquities] on to the next generations who learn from them.
· Although “iniquities” are powered by demons and can be spiritually transferred through idolatrous generations; iniquities manifest mostly through the learned works and habits of unrepentant sinners “who hate God,” but not through true believers who “...keep His commandments,” (Ex. 20:5-6.) Demons can attach themselves to, or ‘indwell’ and control the unregenerate ‘hearts’ or human spirits and minds of unbelievers and fake believers, (1 Jn. 5:18-19; 2 Cor. 10:3-5.) Hence, Jesus said to the Old Hebrews, who lived before the cross, Pentecost, the rebirth, and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, “What comes out of the mouth, comes from the heart [or ‘dead’ human spirit] and defiles a man,” (Mt. 15:18.) But at our personal rebirth, we were placed into the spiritual body of Christ as “members of His body; of His flesh and of His bones…” (Eph. 5:30; Jn. 1:12-13; Gal. 4:4-7.) So, spiritually, “there is no more Jew nor Gentile, [race,] slave nor free, [social status,] male nor female, [gender,] for [true believers] are All One In Christ,” (Gal. 3:28.)
Speaking of the ‘evil heart,’ Jesus was not referring to the human spirits of born again believers, who are “complete” in Him after the cross and Pentecost, (Col. 2:9-10; Eph. 1:7; 12-14.) The sin of sincere believers now come from the “carnal mind” called “the flesh:” their unrenewed thoughts and beliefs, (Rom. Chapter 8; 2 Cor. 10:3-5.) Their born again ‘hearts’ or human spirits were spiritually “circumcised” when the old sin nature was cut away by the Holy Spirit at their water baptism of disciples. That stinking ‘old man of sin’ was spiritually buried that day, (Rom. 6, Col. 2:9-15.) [Here falls the false dogma of the so-called ‘sin nature’ of true believers!] John explained that those “who were born of God [are so perfect in their human spirits;] they cannot sin, [from their born again ‘hearts,’]” (1 Jn. 3:9.) There is no sin in them — except that their minds or thoughts are still tainted by false beliefs, and must be systematically renewed so they can know and do the will of God, (Rom. 12:1-3.) This wonder of Jesus’ atonement is another reason why true believers cannot have indwelling demons! The battle is now for their ‘minds’ or thoughts, (2 Cor. 10:3-5.) Through the spiritual rebirth, either spiritually or physically, nothing of the “old man” remained to be ‘cut off!’
DEALING WITH SO-CALLED ‘INHERITED’ DEMONS
Sincerely born again believers cannot have indwelling demons, (1 Cor. 6:15-20; Eph. 1:7,12-14.) Still, it is good to confess all sin to God and to “abstain from all evil” to keep us safe in Jesus, (1 Ths. 5:21-22.) Demons are behind all sin. Hence, it is necessary to obey God’s Moral-Law commandments to confess our sins against those whom we have wronged, (Jam. 5:16.) And let us not forget our sin to passively keeping quiet, or actively approve of the sin of others, (Rom. 1:32.) As all confession of sin requires repentance to be effective, it is good to openly renounce and reject all sin, and then to remove ourselves as far as possible from unrepentant people that influence our lives, (1 Cor. 15:33.) This includes, as far as possible, to distance ourselves from the wicked works of spouses, family, adult children, friends, church, nation, and the unbelieving world, (Mt. 10:37.)
As related in the study of masonry, someone asked about a “powerful prayer book” that someone wrote. The writer supposedly leads “demon oppressed [or actually possessed] and generation cursed” believers to confess every ritual of masonry in detail to ‘deliver’ them and their descendants and allegedly, “the effects are immediate.” But if it were true that we must confess the sins of our forefathers in such detail to be ‘redeemed,’ we were not brought “out of darkness into Jesus’ light” at our personal rebirth, and so, we were not born again at all, (Eph. 1:7, 12-14; Col. 1:13-14.) E.g., if our grandmothers and grandfathers were prostitutes, (males committing adultery, fornication, and witchcraft are prostitutes and witches too; the ‘warlock-narrative’ came from movies, 1 Sam. 15:23,) we do not have to describe all their filthy acts in detail to be ‘delivered’ from the so-called ‘ancestor curse’ of prostitution! In the truth of God’s Word, such elaborate confessions were compiled by sensation seekers. Jesus said in Mt. 6:5-15, we are not heard because of our many words, [formulas and rituals,] like the pagans believe they are heard. If we ourselves were male or female witches, (all disobedience to God is witchcraft and idolatry, 1 Sam. 15:22-23,) prostitutes, masons, or any other kind of Satanist; and if we participated or even ‘passively’ shared in their religious ceremonies and human and animal sacrifice in particular, confessing such atrocities to God by name is necessary. However, if our ancestors committed such atrocities and we never joined them, we might fall under the spell of sensation seekers to think that God is not almighty and omniscient enough to have redeemed us in full at our personal rebirth. Jesus knows exactly what we talk about when we mention masons, Satanists, prostitutes, etcetera.
· Because the “battle is for the mind” and not to allow any misconceptions, (Rom. 12:1-3,) we may openly distance ourselves and our descendants from all darkness, by our once off, simple, sincere confession and renunciation of the evil beliefs and practices of our ancestors, (1 Pt. 1:13-19; 1 Jn. 1:8-10.) It is good to verbally reject all ways and practices, which affect us to live holy in God’s Kingdom of Light and Truth, (1 Ths. 5:21-22.) This is not because we were not fully delivered from all bondage at our rebirth. It has to do with the “renewing” or “transformation” of our minds, (thoughts and beliefs,) so that the evil one cannot deceive us in any way, and make us believe he still has a “foothold” in our lives, (Rom. 12:1-3.) So, we may confess to God that our ancestors were masons, prostitutes, and other types of devil worshippers, who did wicked deeds and satanic rituals, and probably made promises to the devil concerning us and our children. (Let us not forget the unscriptural church and other practices such as ancestor worship, the ‘saving’ baby sprinkling as a baptism, etcetera, which kept our ancestors in bondage to the devil and his false church systems.)
THE DOGMA OF “SOUL TIES” IS INTERTWINED WITH TWISTED DOGMAS AND pagan rituals in churches.
Here follows the Scriptural version. Spiritually, true believers were fully delivered from darkness at their rebirth, (Eph 1:7; 12-14.) Still, we might remain ‘addicted’ to the control of abusers on a mental level. To “cut soul ties,” we don’t need scissors! We must understand our redemption in Christ, the truth of His Word — and how to deal with abusers. Christianized pagan rituals cannot set us free; but bring us into serious bondage as Jesus never uses satanic devices! But we can, in the Name of Jesus Christ, renounce and verbally break all emotional addiction through trauma and treason bonding, or so-called ‘soul ties’ to parents, spouses, etcetera, who traumatized us through their abuse. This means, we confess our addiction to them, repent from, and renounce it all as idolatry and witchcraft to obey them rather than God, (Sam. 15:23.) In this way, we can emotionally distance ourselves from demoniacs, pagan/church rituals, pacts with, and promises to the devil.
· Hebrews 4:12 tells us, “The Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword. It divides between soul [or mind] and [human] spirit,” cutting loose our thoughts, emotions, and will from our born again human spirits, which are “complete in Christ,” (Col. 2:10,) so we can worship God supernaturally in “spirit,” and in “truth” on a soulical level, (Jn. 4:21-24; Rom. 12:1-3.) The Word then “cuts between joints and marrow,” to sever us emotionally from sin and abusers to whom we were spiritually and soulically “tied” as blood relatives, as well as from adulterating spouses, rapists, etcetera, through sexual sin, which made us “one with them,” by sinning directly against the temple of the Holy Spirit, (1 Cor. 6:15-20.) The Word is also “a discerner of our [deepest] thoughts and intents,” to show us where we joined ourselves emotionally to people and things that God must cut away by our understanding of His Word and everything else. This is how the Word and Spirit, working with our obedience to the Moral Law, separate us from evil “thoughts and intents,” which will plague us and lead us to sin if we do not allow the Living Word, Jesus, to sever it from us, (Heb. 4:12.)
Then, all we must do, is to ask our Father to “cleanse us from all unrighteousness, (1 Jn. 1:8-10,) and protect us and everyone and everything else that Godly connect to us, under the blood of Christ, the full control of the Spirit, and the protection of His mighty, holy angels. It is always good to “forgive” or fully release all abusers into His hand, and pray for their salvation if they would choose to turn to Jesus. Henceforward, we must “occupy” our redeemed position in God’s Kingdom by seeking and doing, as far as possible, His will through the truth of His Word in the leading of His Spirit, (1 Jn. 5:18.)
Next, it is enough to dedicate ourselves, descendants, homes, work, lives, etcetera, to God Alone; gratefully welcoming His presence, protection, and blessing in our lives, and praising and worshiping Him for everything He made possible through the full atonement of Jesus, the truth of His Word, and the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit! (Heb. 12:14-17; Rom. 12:1-3.)
CAN WE GIVE THE DEVIL ‘LEGAL GROUND’ TO OPPRESS AND HARM US? (See the Facebook Posts on the next page)
There is no doubt that we must never attempt to play hide and seek with the devil, or lend our ears to any of his deceptions, lies, and false church doctrines. The devil does not have any ‘legal ground’ inside any true believer, who remains at the feet of Jesus. However, he is always trying to gain ‘legal ground’ in our thoughts, decisions, and lives by helping us to stand by the wrong choices, (Jn. 8:44.) He knows how to shoot straight and hit the target bull’s eye; preying on that particular weakness that is unique to each of us, because he has studied humanity for a very long time. He knows how to manipulate our thoughts if we let him borrow our eyes and ears, and how to execute his assaults through those who can harm and even murder us spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Additionally, the enemy does not shoot paper claps from a toy gun, but ‘flaming arrows,’ which we can only quench through our personal faith in Jesus Christ, the power of the Holy Spirit, and our obedience to the truth of God’s Word. 1 Jn. 5:18, “Everyone born of God does not sin [from his born again, renewed heart,] but keeps himself from [deliberate, unrepentant sin,] and the evil one does not touch him…”
When that old snake strikes, it is with the deadly venom of temptation, tribulation, and deception, which humans can only survive in the grace of God by standing, fully clothed in the armor of God’s integrity, on the Man Jesus the Rock, Who is the Truth and Power of God’s Word, (Eph. 6:10-20; Jn. 1:1-14.) The difference between venom and poison, is that we ingest poison and it is often slow working, while just one bite from a venomous thing instantly injects death into our veins. It is time the believers of Christ realize that false doctrine and religious church practices of all kinds are poison and venom, which, in relatively small doses, have the power to kill us spiritually, emotionally, and even physically. That is why Paul warned in Gal. 5:9, “A little leaven [or false teaching] leavens [or corrupts] the whole lump [or body of believers.]”
Besides all his dangerous, underhanded weapons, Satan, who also pretends to be a roaring lion, “walks about, seeking whom he may devour,” (1 Pt. 5:6-9.) Lions usually hunt in darkness. They will ambush and kill anything that does not know they are being stalked. Mostly, being opportunists, they will take those who are weak, unwary, lazy, and sleeping. That is why Peter commanded, “Be sober, be vigilant; resist the devil steadfast [or constantly and strong] in the faith; knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your [true] brotherhood [in Christ] throughout the world,” (1 Pt. 5:8, KJV.)
If the devil cannot get us as the venomous snake or the roaring lion, he will play on our natural needs and wants; turning what is instinctive and not sinful, (such as thirst and hunger) into lust, greed, manipulation, fraud, theft, adultery, and emotional and physical murder, (1 Jn. 3:15.) Under temptation and oppression, many accept his deception that God’s Power, Truth, Companionship, Redemption, Provision, and Protection are not enough, and they fall prey to all kinds of get-rich-quick schemes and other evil, which are “foolish snares; piercing themselves with many sorrows,” (1 Tim. 6:3-12.)
There is only one way to avoid the devil’s snares, or to get out of his death grip of enticement and sin, and it is not by visiting ‘deliverance’ ministers of any kind. God commanded in Jam. 1:7, “Submit yourself [wholly] to God. [Then,] resist the devil – and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands [from all unrepentant sin] and purify your hearts, you double-minded… Humble yourself in the sight of Lord, and He will lift you up.” Note that all these commandments are verbs. We ourselves, in the grace of God, must do it!
Þ The first thing that afflicted disciples must do, is to drench their minds in prayer and the truth of God’s Word. It is the truth of God’s Word in the teaching, leading, and power of the Holy Spirit, and also about us and our situations, which sets us free. We must “become doers of God’s Moral Law, and not remain hearers only, deceiving ourselves,” (Jam. 1:22.) We must not allow Satan to sidetrack us, but always keep moving forward as the Spirit leads us.
Þ Forget all the occult, New Age, and unbiblical fasts and strange so-called ‘cures.’ Such Christianized Satanism will only increase our troubles multifold. Never postpone obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit and the New Covenant commandments of His Word. We may ask a sincere believer to anoint us with oil as the symbol of the Holy Spirit, and to pray God’s emotional and physical healing over us. “Where two or three are gathered in Jesus’ Name, there He is in the midst of them.” If we do not have anyone to pray with us, we can trust Jesus, our High Priest, to be in us and with us; interceding for us — which He always does in any case, until “the end of the world,” (Rom. 8:31-35; Mt. 28:18-20.)
With or without the anointing of oil, we may also boldly ask our Father in heaven in the Name of Jesus to release us from all satanic attacks on our human spirits, souls, bodies, lives, work, relationships, etcetera, and to protect us under the blood Covenant of Jesus Christ, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the ministry of His holy angels. We should also keep in mind that Satan can use the unwarranted hatred of people to attack us. So, we may ask God to call our unrepentant enemies to account for their sin, which might lead them to repentance; to expose them if they are dangers to society, and ask Him to protect the innocent that might be exposed to them. And let us not forget to ask our Father to ward off all attacks from human spirits as well, (the spirits of people who are alive.) God is Almighty, Omnipresent, and Omniscient; there is not a single thing He does not know. Thus, we must also ask Him to reveal to us the “great and mighty things we do not know,” and help us to deal with everything according to His Word and the leading of His Spirit, ( Jer. 33:3.)
Having done all Scripturally and in obedience to the Spirit, we must then stand in the truth of God’s Word, clothed spiritually in His whole armor, (which is not a quick dress ritual but our inborn integrity in Jesus Christ,) our eyes fixed on Him until He answers our cries. Our Father will never “leave us nor forsake us,” as long as we remain humbly at His feet, (Heb. 13:5.)
