testimonies and testicles

i learned today in my western religions class that a testimony, or the sharing of it, began as an oath with the ancient israelites. in context of the abrahamic covenant to have numberless prosterity, the oath was made on those future descendants by grabbing the source while stating the promise. that's right, they grabbed their balls as they made the oath.

think about this as you bare your testimony this sunday.
