The Cousins Trevelyan headcanon: Rolfe is a weenie when it comes to being sick only in front of those that he trusts. Like "get me that glass that's only inches away, for I am too ill to move" type sick. Ada, getting fed up with it, tells him he most definitely is seriously ill; she rattles off some fake medical jargon-laden diagnosis and Rolfe's wide-eyed "really? Crap, I didn't know it was that bad." Ravena plays along to see how long they can convince him he's at death's door.
That is cruel and wicked and I LOVE it. Honestly Rolfe related stuff kills me every time. Tell me more about these cousins and their shenanigans!
A Christian is not somebody who stays away from all wicked things he loves and clings to all the righteous things he hates so that he can go to heaven. The fear of the Christian is not going to hell. The fear of the Christian is being separated from Christ.
