This is one of my all-time favorites.
We as children of God we must know that besides a mighty God and a allsome God the Lord to is an gellious God.
(Gellious makes me think of Santa Claus … Is angelical at work there? Given a allsome and an gellious it seems probable. But in context he clearly meant “jealous”.)
There are thousands of examples of “allsome” in other contexts. (I believe it is perfectly standard for a good many people.) E.g.
I havent seen this movie, but from what I can tell it is allsome!
my favorite one forever and ever would be jordin sparks beacuse she is allsome and love her beautiful smile so much
When it comes to God, I’ve wondered if the adjective arises because he is all-powerful, and all-knowing, and all wise (besides being all-wise), and like all nice to us and all kind and loving, and just generally all… allsome.
(Somebody does have a handle Awesome Paulsome, but I have not yet found allsome pallsome in use. Hope on, hope ever.)
