LOL - This girl is hilarious. She quotes again and again how she doesn't think that actual scriptural rules given by Paul are nOT something she believes in, or follows for herself - then says the bible is the reference for everything! I think Laurel Wood is just a big giant hypocrit that basically makes up her own rules as she goes, fitted to what SHE wants to do, and then opens her mouth to say whatever she thinks sounds good.
Translated: She has no conviction, no substance, selfish and spoiled. She would make a good spokesperson for the church.
thank you for chiming in finally. Your name says it all. Yes I have been spoiled terribly, had a lot of love in my life. I won't debate you on anything, keep it up though.

I think several places in the New Testament give reference to deacons, pastors as well as women. Older Women are to teach the younger ones. In mega churches you lose some of the rules but not all. Its refreshing when a young woman comes and asks how to act in church. You are left with an older woman deciding on "do your own thing." That is often embarrassing for the young woman and can be disruptive to the entire church so show her where to find the truth in the Bible. Many times when a church allows "anything goes" regarding deacons etc the church undergoes a large falling away. I say what is wrong with the rules of church they are not so restrictive anyway if you truly believe in the Bible. I think of Jesus with longish hair. I don't know why and I think of him having olive skin like residents of his region. The stories of Samson, Paul, Ruth and many others are good and better than some modern books. I have some issues with Esther though.
Thank you Laurel! I though I was the only one who had issues with Esther. That women gets on my last nerve. She is always butting into other peoples business. But, worse, she speeds down the road in her muffler-less pickup all the while littering with her McDonalds wrappers and beer bottles. There have been timees while I am working on the horse fence closest to the road, I have seen her flip out her cigarette butts. This is especially nerve wracking when it is so dry.

Well, at least, there is someone else besides me who doesn't care much for this worman.

Oh my, I am not sure what to say now. Those issues were not exactly what I was talking about but you sure warmed up my morning with your humor. I hope you are not working on the fence today, too cold.

Timmy I was once young and very naive about a lot of things. As far as being bitter, I don't think I am. What I said about the church in previous posting is 100 percent accurate. I really don't believe most other churches are any different. When they call closed meeting to talk about "business" it is always about money. In the example I gave the pastor was already being paid a salary, provided with a home to live in rent free. He called a meeting with the elders to tell us the church would be providing him and his family with insurance, and a retirement plan. At the time the church had about 100 regular members attending with a collection of about a 1000 dollars a week. From this money we had to pay note on church,utilities, and pastor salary. The church could not pay the new things that he wanted. So members left, and eventually so did the pastor. Today where the church building stood is a parking lot.

I don't personally hold anything against God. As far as the pastor I mentioned, he is still with the church and has a home Church a few towns away from me. I just hope he to has matured and learned some wisdom.

Yessir sooner or later they is all like thet. Theys led by men not God, and sooner or later they runs the ship ashore. Spirit don't live in no building. Not in no by laws neither. Spirit walks around in men thats willin to house it n walk with it as be as well. Don't answer to no deacons n pasters neither.

But you iz right. Cain't hold churches against God. Cause they ain't from God. To find God yas look in the temples of men. Ta house God yas build up yer own temple. Spirit knows.

Quit quoting the bible and live the life God has given you, have a personal realationship with GOD not a book, how simple, why does everyone complicate it with churches and religions?? You don't need anything to love god and live his word. You don't need bible classes or a building, pastors etc. LIVE the life GOD has given you with HIM and stop worrying about the details. You don't need someone else to tell you how to have a personal realationship with God. Why do you feel that you do? It is between you and Him. Not your church, or your pastor or deacon or anyone else. If more people stopped living the drama of the churches and the rules of such, they may just have a chance to see past all of that and become one with the Almighty God.

<quoted text>Good morning no offense to stoning I knew what you meant. What would I do without my sausage McMuffin each day when I work and my coffee choice of the day. If we dissect the Bible it will always be easy to judge someone, I can't never could. My theme is "not perfect, but forgiven". Yes to San Francisco but I don't know how many points. I am pumped already and can't wait, I love the game, the commercials and all the food we are having. Oh yes I have candles for the gas emitting that comes along with the game.
Great post.

I, for one, would never give any grief to someone who can handle a sausage McMuffin.

I just can't get excited about San Fran or Baltimore. A Super Bowl of less than epic proportions for me.

But good luck to you !

Very true. When I see a preacher with his hand out wanting more money and benefits, I don't think he is being a true servant of God. It is called love of self.

Its rare that I get the McMuffin but on my 2 day workweek I am known to get a coffee. Oh this Super Bowl is disgusting, bunch of wimps! I see all kinds of things the blind refs can't see. More like theater to me. Naturally I am a little mad too but the adrenelin is good for me.

Of course, I am very disappointed in that we are not discussing the same Esther. So, once again I am all alone, out on the proverbial limb, flapping in the breeze as Esther roars past in her old pickup.

I don't mind expressing out loud my fear of her and what she could do to me or worse, with me. My only hope now is that because of her rather large size, I can out run her, all alone, of course.

Play some very soft music people when you read this one, please ready slowly so as not to pass over the key issue here: goods!

Zoltar, please do not be afraid. As you know God is with you everywhere. Did you turn her down? If she is suffering rejection that may be why she just feels she needs to be near your space. I am so sorry that this has happened and I don't know you or the lady named Esther. All I can say is get a grip on your emotions and be strong, always be aware of your surroundings. You know you have some very valuable goods and until you are ready to give them up gracefully I caution you to hold all you have. One day my man, one day! I am not sure this advice belongs on this forum. If you want to start one "Help me, Laurel" I will help you out.

Uh oh Zoltar, I just read Gun Sales and I think Uninformed Opinion is better at helping you than I did in the above. Start you a new forum, "Help me, Uninformed Opinion". I hope you are ok and EVERYTHING is safe. This is most pitiful thing I have ever seen on Topix.

Wow! How did you do that? When I read your post, I heard music. It sounded like the theme from "Deliverance".

I consider your offer to help as an act of great kindness. Thank you.

I may have my problem solved, however. I am trying to fix a guy up with Esther on another thread, "2nd ammendment". His name is "jokes on you" and may be interested. So, I'll just wait and see.

Thanks again.
