People are afraid of love. Romantic love, or even God’s love seems overwhelming at times. We’re afraid of never finding love, we’re afraid of losing love when we do find it, and we’re afraid of how that love will change us, as it continues to hang around.
How ironic that 1 John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”
When you read the word “perfect” in that passage, it comes from a Greek word -teleios- that refers to something that was laid out, and then completed, like running a race course to the finish line. This word teleios would be stamped on documents to show that a debt was owed, and then was paid on full.
Teleios was the last word Jesus said on the cross.
I purchased a Minolta X-7A (called X-370 in USA) at a flea market. First camera I ever bought at a flea market. I did a lot of research on this camera and apparently, it’s a fairly simple camera, good for beginners. There was also an Olympus camera available (I think the OM-1?) but I was skeptical if it would work.
It looks to be in good shape cuz the bottom plastic covering is still unscratched. The strap is original and looks mint. There are 3 obvious exterior scratches on the top of the camera and a few nicks on the outer rim of the lens. Other than that, there really isn’t too much wear and tear. Need to get batteries tho.. I hope it works!!!! I really want to take pictures with this camera.
