Do you think it might have been the Boogie man? Most of the time he don't say nothin' he just reaches out and grabs you. He scares the stuffins out of me. Now I think this dude might of give up sex because he wasn't gettin any anyways, but I think he's still kind of high. I've been trying to get him to let me shoot him in his butt with some 22 rat shot and see if that passes right through him. Can we all say, chicken poop? Talkin the talk and walkin the walk are two different things.

Just commenting on the OP for this thread.

First of all, I am not a Christian. I consider myself to be a striving servant of God. I use the same Bible. But because the Christian name has been diluted, slandered, and altered so much, it would be dangerous to use it.

With that being said, many Christians are playing the fool's game. And the Bible even tells us this is true. I call it the popular God concept we find in churches. Worldly people find tolerance for their own lifestyles by attending tolerant churches. God does not tolerate worldly life. And He has already demonstrated more than once that He will not hesitate to destroy people for indulging in their own worldly ways.

Furthermore, all those same people who wear the "Christian" name tags are the same ones who try to mix God with secular teaching. YOU ARE FOOLS. It is important to keep God holy. Behavior is important in being a servant. And it is important to interrogate the information that goes into out heads. Especially when it is not biblical.

Remember the Tree of Knowledge and how it was forbidden? It represents the corruption of knowledge. Only God's knowledge was meant for us. The public schools represent that "Tree". They teach unGodly things. So it would be both pointless and idiotic to mix God with the schools. It makes God appear to be material or worldly. Secular kids do not understand holy behavior. They follow trends, norms, and are taught to conform to society. Jesus taught us to NOT conform to society. We only conform to the ways of God. And they are very unlike how people generally live today. God didn't tell you to work a secular job from 9 to 5, buy 2 new cars, a new pretty overpriced home, a swimming pool, and start a vacation savings account. YOU ARE LIVING FOR YOURSELVES. You have betrayed God's principles and are forsaking needy people. You pass up the homeless man. You might hand him some pennies. But try giving him everything you have! We are all rich in God's eyes. We do not face 1% of hardships Jesus did. And He did so voluntarily to PROVE His loyalty to God. And for that He was rewarded. God will not reward most people that live during this time period. Because most are following the FALSE concept of God. The worldly church concept that says it is okay to live the way that you do! IT IS NOT OKAY. Jesus was clear in His words!! You just do not listen.

Do you sit at home and study the Bible diligently? Or do you let Pastor Joe spit out a few meanings once a week? You are fooling yourself and others. Give up THIS life. Else it will be the last one you have.

Satan will mix truth with lies to make it hard to determine what is true and what is not. Just like he did when talking to Eve through a snake.

A small boy once approached his slightly older sister with a question about God. "Susie, can anybody ever really see God?" he asked.

Busy with other things, Susie curtly replied: "No, of course
not silly. God is so far up in heaven that nobody can see him."

Time passed, but his question still lingered so he approached his mom: "Mom, can anybody ever really see God?" "No, not really," she gently said. "God is a spirit and he dwells in our hearts, but we can never really see Him."

Somewhat satisfied but still wondering, the youngster went on his way. Not long afterwards, his saintly old grandfather took the little boy on a fishing trip.

They were having a great time together. The sun was beginning to set with unusual splendor and the grandfather stared silently at the exquisite beauty unfolding before them.

On seeing the face of his grandfather reflecting such deep
peace and contentment, the little boy thought for a moment and finally spoke hesitatingly:

"Granddad, I--I-- wasn't going to ask anybody else, but I wonder if you can tell me the answer to something I've been wondering about a long time. Can anybody - can anybody ever really see God?".

The old man did not even turn his head. A long moment slipped by before he finally answered. "Son," he quietly said. "It's getting so I can't see anything else."

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I never dreamed before.
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.

I dreamt I saw a mighty room,
The room was filled with men.
And the papers they were signing said
They'd never fight again.

And when the papers were all signed,
And a million copies made
They all joined hands and bowed their heads,
And grateful prayers were made.

And the people in the streets below,
They all danced round and round.
And guns and swords and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground.

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I never dreamed before.
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.

"I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it." -- Dwight Eisenhower

“It is a great adventure to contemplate the universe, beyond man, to contemplate what it would be like without man, as it was in a great part of its long history and as it is in a great majority of places. When this objective view is finally attained, and the mystery and majesty of matter are fully appreciated, to then turn the objective eye back on man viewed as matter, to view life as part of this universal mystery of greatest depth, is to sense an experience which is very rare, and very exciting. It usually ends in laughter and a delight in the futility of trying to understand what this atom in the universe is, this thing—atoms with curiosity—that looks at itself and wonders why it wonders. Well, these scientific views end in awe and mystery, lost at the edge in uncertainty, but they appear to be so deep and so impressive that the theory that it is all arranged as a stage for God to watch man's struggle for good and evil seems inadequate.

Some will tell me that I have just described a religious experience. Very well, you may call it what you will. Then, in that language I would say that the young man's religious experience is of such a kind that he finds the religion of his church inadequate to describe, to encompass that kind of experience. The God of the church isn't big enough.”

I find it pretty selfish of people that thank God for their many blessings and gift of life. What makes you so much more special to receive blessings and a great life than to those 6 million starving children around the world? Why do you pray to God to help those who suffer instead of you taking action and helping them yourself? Don't you see how selfish you actually look when you pray to God about the good life he gave you? I myself have the read Bible two times and see that it is full of contradictions and lies. The God that I "would" but don't believe in should not have to call to a human to do his job. He would not send a man named Jesus to save us from our wrong doings. He especially wouldn't create a place to send us of never ending fire and torture for those who do not worship him/her throughout our lives. Is it not time you people begin to actually open your mind and reconsider your religion? I have read and studied enough history of mankind and the world to know one thing for certain: For thousands of years throughout known history of man, we have only created our own Gods to forgive us for our wrong doings. I say we keep all religions out of school teachings and leave it to those who do not wish to learn about our world. If you need a book that was written by man to understand your morals, than you are just as much of a fool as the person who wrote it.

There is one thing Jehovah God cannot do: It is impossible for God to lie or contradict himself as some indicate:
Ezekiel 18:4,20 Look! All the souls—to me they belong. As the soul of the father so likewise the soul of the son to me they belong. The SOUL that is sinning—it itself WILL DIE.

Ecclesiastes 9:5,10 For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are CONSCIOUS OF NOTHING AT ALL...
10... For there is no work nor devising nor KNOWLEDGE nor WISDOM in Sheol,(the grave) the place to which you are going.

Some would try to convince you that not only does God lie but he contradicts himself as well. Those who claim that God will keep sinners ALIVE so he can torture them in some hell fire forever are saying that God told lies and contradicted himself in the above scriptures.
I DON'T THINK SO!

Because He tells the Truth... Satan only lies 1/2 thruths!

"if I want to talk to God I pray"
How do you think I, or anyone else talks to God?
I question, why do you not get any answers?
JW?

Look... except for that time in the shed...
It's been kind of Subliminal... sometimes immediately,
sometimes after a while, like letting me figure it out...
and then He affirms the answer I get!
Remember too... you don't get answers for Everything, as
He keeps some to Himself!
