Sometimes we feel lost, but we are not really lost and just as we are about to despair, a sign, a light, a smile enter our lives to lift us up.
Every new day holds new opportunities ... to love.
May you feel warm and loved.

REMEMBER, JEHOVAH IS WITH US!
We are now privileged to share in the GREATEST WORK ever entrusted to Gods human servants---that of declaring the Kingdom message and making disciples.(Matt.24:14; 28:19,20) We now number 7,224,934 and put in 1,707,094,710 hours and conducted on the average 8,490,746 Bible studies in 2011 alone. How grateful we are for Jesus matchless example! He went journeying from city to city and from village to village, preaching and declaring the good news of the Kingdom of God.(Luke 8:1) Like him, we need faith and courage in order to preach the Kingdom message. With Gods help, we can be like courageous Noah, an intrepid preacher of righteousness to a world of ungodly people about to perish in a global deluge.- 2 Peter 2:4,5.

"A certain man was going down the lonely road from Jerusalem to Jericho; and he fell among robbers, who stripped him of all that he had and beat him; and then went away, leaving him almost dead. It happened that a certain priest was going down that road; and when he saw the man lying there, he passed by on the other side. And a Levite, also, when he came to the place, and saw the man, he too went by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he was going down, came where this man was; and as soon as he saw him, he felt a pity for him. He came to the man, and dressed his wounds, pouring oil and wine into them. Then he lifted him up, and set him on his own beast of burden, and walked beside him to an inn. There he took care of him all night; and the next morning he took out from his purse two shillings, and gave them to the keeper of the inn, and said:'Take care of him; and if you need to spend more than this, do so; and when I come again I will pay it to you.'"
"Which one of these three, do you think, showed himself a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?"
The scribe said: "The one who showed mercy on him."
Then Jesus said to him: "Go and do thou likewise."
By this parable, Jesus showed that "our neighbor" is the one who needs the help that we can give him, whoever they may be.
"A man fell victim to robbers as he went down from Jerusalem to Jericho. They stripped him and beat him and went off leaving him half-dead." Then Jesus described the actions of three men who passed the injured man. The first man was a priest. When he saw the man, he crossed the road and ignored him. The next man was a Levite. He, too, chose to cross to the other side of the road and continue on his way. But the third man was a Samaritan.
The Samaritans and the Jews have hated each other for centuries. Jesus knew the people were probably expecting the Samaritan in the story to cross the road as well. Jesus continued his story. "But a Samaritan traveler who came upon him was moved with compassion at the sight. He approached the victim, poured oil and wine over his wounds and bandaged them. Then he lifted him up on his own animal, took him to an inn and cared for him. The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper with the instruction,'Take care of him. If you spend more than what I have given you, I shall repay you on my way back.'"
Then Jesus looked into the man's eyes and asked him,Which of these three, in your opinion, was neighbor to the robbers victim?" The man said plainly, "The one who treated him with mercy." Then Jesus said, "Go and do likewise."
The parable of "The Good Samaritan, aka the Good Shepherd."

Jonah and the Whale is a famous Biblical story, read and celebrated by Christians, Jews and Muslims. During the story, Jonah (or Yunus as he is known in Islam), is called to board a ship to preach to the people of Nineveh. Since Jonah is reluctant to answer The Call, God sends a storm to test Jonah's faith. Jonah is tossed overboard and spends several days in a whale, trying to hide from God; however, he finds he cannot hide.
This story is often told as a lesson in recognizing tests of faith, and is traditionally read by Jews on Yom Kippur.

Most likely, because the people around them weren't taught any better.

jehovah is not the name.
mark of the beast is idolatry
mark of the living ONE
And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
#95783 Mar 6, 2013
And what you posted teaches morality and decency towards others how?
#95784 Mar 6, 2013
idolatry is not considered moral by anyone but the profane.
he who wishes to be greatest must be servant to all.
thus he who wishes to be greatest does not recognize any difference between self and other self.
it's called the LAW of ONE by some.
jehovah is not the name.
imagine an infinite number of tongues all describing the same ONE in their own language and from differing cultures, or points in space/time.
Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,
Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

The idoltry thing is comprehendable...idle hands, devils playground, or did you mean idoltry as in-
Rationalists are admirable beings, rationalism is a hideous monster when it claims for itself omnipotence. Attribution of omnipotence to reason is as bad a piece of idolatry as is worship of stock and stone believing it to be God. I plead not for the suppression of reason, but for a due recognition of that in us which sanctifies reason.(Ghandi)
Science can purify religion from error and superstition. Religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes.(Pope JP II)
But the rest...Maybe next time try it en Englais?(or did you mean to say, see how the same story sometimes actually exists through out MANY "different religions"?) therefore not actually being as "babelish" as such may seem?
Bueller, Fenris anyone?

idolatry as in worshiping the beast, the abomination that causes desolation, spoken by daniel.
what was it said in the reveal?
And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
romans 1: 22-23
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man,
I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.
Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness?
And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
it was given that it would come like a thief in the night
2 Peter 3:10
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
i require mercy and not sacrifice
3 He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.
5 Hear the word of the Lord, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the Lord be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
6 A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the Lord that rendereth recompence to his enemies.
7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.

kiss me judas
your kiss is cosmic
i'm ready to go into the light coming out of the dark
Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
#95788 Mar 6, 2013
everyone has a darkside
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.
could you be a devil?
could you be an angel?
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.
Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.
behold i come like a thief blessed is he who stays awake, lest he go naked and they see his shame.
want to be a victim
ready for abduction
His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
i'll be there when you vibrate
2 Peter 3:7
But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
this is transcendental
on another level

You are correct no one knows exactly how God's name was pronounced in Hebrew but Jehovah is the accepted way in English. You can go into any culture and any language and say the name Jehovah and it is close enough so they know who you are talking about. That is good enough for me! What name do you prefer and use?

I didn't say anything about banning books. I would gladly fight to keep the Bible or any other book from being banned.
What I said was "be critical". Criticism is VITAL to getting as close to the truth as possible. It is what makes science work. And if you have any doubts about it just consider that your computer, phone, and (if you take them) medicines are a result of this critical endeavor.
We went to the Moon based on it.
So when American Christians travel to poor nations and pass out the Bible without criticism of it they engender the kind of witch-hunting that we see happening over there. In Uganga they want to kill homosexuals. The Bible gives them a text book upon which to base that hateful proposition.
Without room for criticism a book becomes a weapon. For pete's sake, don't ban it. But do not EVER let it stand above criticism.

I thought we were arguing about atheism being or not being a "belief system". How did we now come to me being asked to describe the mind?
Can you not simply concede that atheism follows from a system of beliefs and is not in and of itself a belief system? Then we can move on to minds and cool things like that.

Revelations is best read by adults with some reading comprehension, for themselves, so that they may be able to discern in wisdom, that which is evil, from that which is good.
Please stay AWAY from the innocent children, children deserve enlightenment and lightness, darkness is for those who reap it for themselves.
Children Learn What They Live
By Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D.
If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.
If children live with acceptance and friendliness, they learn the world can be a nice place in which to live.
