Don't run from God -



Serenity Prayer:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.  

Trusting that He will make all things right ..
Amen.

I personally think it would be wonderful to bring the
word of God to our children. It appears that there
are thousands that never hear Gods' word, school shootings, rape, drugs are rampant, our children live
in a scary and dangerous world. Think people, our
God created this world, our children and every thing
in the world-isn't it about time we started letting
the truth , as we know it, be known? I am so concerned about the youth of today, I feel sorry for them, they have such a struggle to find their way through life. Let's pray for a solution to the drug problem that is sucking the very life out of our young. We never know the potential of a young person life or the contribution he/she will make, why let sin deny that person of what they may be capable of??

Exactly.
Why I don't believe in slavery, it's not Constitutionally acceptable.

My brain is just fine thank you. However, should my brain need cleansed, I know of some wonderful scriptures (and other readings) that could do so....so I have no issue with reading anything cleansing to the mind myself either, because such IS, Constitutionally acceptable.

A beautiful prayer as well.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.
-----

The Full Original Copy of the Serenity Prayer
by Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)

God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.

Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.

Amen.

Oh and thanks for clearing up the multiple posting user name thing for us sista .. "Tis simple for the intelligent man to feign ignorance, Tis impossible for the ignorant man to feign intellect" - Q ... I know you don't understand that quotes significance to your post but don't have time to or inclination to try to lower myself to a 5th grade mind set to explain it to you so I suggest you call one of your grade school relatives to have them explain it in terms you can comprehend....

A beautiful prayer as well.
The Fred is my name, I shall not want.
I maketh me to lie down in The Rock Quarry ; I leadeth myself to the rack of ribs.
I restoreth my Dino; I leadeth myself in the paths of Bed Rock for his name's sake, Barney.
Yea, though I walk through the lanes of the bowling ally, I will fear no evil, for Barney art with me.
Thy Pebbles and BamBam they comfort me. Thou preparest a rack of Ribs before me in the presence of mine enemie, Mr. Slate;
thou anointest my head with little birds and stars; my cup of stone runneth over with beer.
Surely, Barney and Betty shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the stone house of Fred & Wilma for ever.

Yabadabadoooo....

So you want Government to do what the churches failed to do? So sad you do not live in a theocracy.

That would be like me saying... I don't believe you have a gun...
even while it's IN MY FACE!
God is right before you, but you'd rather be BLINDED by people
like Dawkins... Guess who Dawkins works for???
God is not right before us, he hides. This is why people do not believe. If I see a gun in my face, I know it is there. If I had a god in my face, I would know it. But no god is in my face. So when you insist it is, I say you are bat shit crazy.

What restriction does a church have? How is it causing churches to be just social gathering places? You comment makes zero sense.

Witch hunting went out when secularism took over. Embrace it. America was one of the first. America was founded on this principle first and foremost.
