Not every dose is designed to taste like cherry-flavored cough drops, Lily.
Sometimes the shit you serve out comes right back to you on a silver platter, adorned with sprigs of parsely and wedges of lemon. Other times, its just plain stinking shit, only a little more older and covered with buzzing, slurping green flies.
Sometimes, its just plain moldy old shit and you get it served to you because that is what you tried to serve to someone else.
Fire is like that, too. It burns things. It toasts things. It often leaves a charred mess. It often destroys. But, in certain applications it can serve to purify and sometimes it anneals the recipient, improving.
Find a way to look past what you don't like in order to find what you do like, Lily. I'll be doing the same thing.

You seem to be under the impression that God died and made you God. He didn't. It's not your place to serve up anything. You don't deserve the title you gave yourself.

Oh they called alright. You should have heard the good laugh the Detective and I had. She KNOWS what a piece of work he is. She told me that if he persisted to take out a warrant. She talked with him and he stopped.

Kinda sensitive, aren'tcha?

My words weren't aimed at you. They were just an observation about everyone having to take [their own] medicine from time to time.

You criticized me for not being "nice" enough for your tastes. Now you criticize me for sounding too high and mighty!

Well, Honey,.... seems like whatever I write, you are going to be critical of it. So, have at it. But don't complain when you get it sent right back all dressed up when you deserve a taste of your own.

That's the nature and liability of being a hypocrite, you know. You don't think your own shit stinks. But, it stinks to High Heaven!

That's why so many who see themselves as goodie two shoes intensely dislike Rush Limbaugh. They think HE THINKS his sh-t doesn't stink. They completely misread him. His pretentious arrogance is an entertainer's put-on; deliberately done for effect and humorous contrast.

You are too serious, Shadow. Go ahead, step into the Light and lose yourSelf.

As if these muslims -- who are beginning to take over yet another Episcopal church -- have nothing to do with the spread of islam?

In this case, your baseless and accusative comments are "off-Topic" as Joe DeCaro has pointed out.

So, no. Nobody cares about your whinings.

LOL!!!.... Well, that certainly is a thinly divined speculation on your part.

The rector and parishioners of St. John's will certainly have more to say about whether or not any group, Muslim or other, will be taking over their Church than what you, with your anti-Episcopal Church obsessive disorder, might suppose.

In the meantime, having been in that part of the Dakotas and judging by the American Spirit and will of those people, I predict that your prediction is unlikely to come true for them any time in the forseeable future.

Don't really believe in the success of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, do you?

It is apparent that the members of the St. John's Episcopal Church parish of Aberdeen, S.D. actually do believe in the success of the Gospel. So much so that they are actually willing to live by it.

More Power and the Blessing of the Holy Spirit be upon them!

If God would have remained invisible there would have been no reason for God to create the world and us.

Jesus is the Son of God.

"In the beginning was the Logos, and the Logos was with God, and the Logos was God. He was in the beginning with God; all things were made through Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men ... And the Logos became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld His glory, glory as of the only Son from The Father." (John 1:1-4,14 RSV)

Many recognize those familiar words of the apostle John, with perhaps one exception. We have used the original Greek word Logos (illustrated at right), in place of Word, that most English-language Bibles use in those translated Scriptures.

What and Who was The Logos?

If we carefully read what John wrote in his Gospel account, we see that the Logos was with God, and was God, but was not a God, because there is only one God:

"Fear not, nor be afraid; have I not told you from of old and declared it? And you are My witnesses! Is there a God besides Me? There is no Rock; I know not any" (Isaiah 44:8 RSV)

The Logos was the wisdom and power by which God created the heavens and the earth:

"He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation; for in Him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities - all things were created through Him and for Him.
He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.

He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning, the first-born from the dead, that in everything he might be pre-eminent. For in Him all the fulness of God was pleased to dwell." (Colossians 1:15-19 RSV)

The Logos became flesh, but God did not become flesh:

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him." (John 3:16-17 RSV)
"And the Logos became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld His glory, glory as of the only Son from The Father." (John 1:14 RSV)

Jesus Christ obeyed God, and said of The Father:

"I do as the Father has commanded Me, so that the world may know that I love The Father." (John 14:31 RSV)

So, Who and What is The Logos? Consider these points of fact taken from the pages of your own Holy Bible -

•The Logos was God, but not a God.

•The Logos was the Power and Wisdom of God.

•All things were created for and by the Logos.

•The Logos became flesh as Jesus Christ.

•Jesus Christ is the Logos of God.

Muhammad didn't know God.
Muhammad worshiped the Jinn devil moon god Allah.
