There are just some things, even when edited jus ever so slightly, that can STILL inspire beautifully, to anyone that may read them...

Grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it.....

Hmm?

Satanic priest getting ridiculed on own worshipping site lol by other atheists. That's got to be disheartening!
God doesn't laugh at us. He laughs with us. He cares about what we care about. What about people you "worship" with? Do they care? It sure doesn't seem so..
I don't believe in a God that just laughs at people either.

That's just pretty damn lame..and stupid.

Kinda like laughing at black mold.

Some chit's just not funny-and really can make people sick.

No ax grinding, I want to see our species improve and that's not what AA is about. Read the 12 steps instead of just jumping to the defense of something that "sound good." Lots of things "sound good" until you actually look at them a bit closer.
Also, no they don't, they get paid by medical insurance and state taxes, always.
Eugenicists wanted to see our species "improve." What are you proposing - that cirrhosis of the liver and crack cocaine overdoses are natural selection? Why not euthanize people who are near-sighted, diabetic or "too short?"

I cannot with conscience contest the fabrications of Bible thumpers and give atheists and agnostics a free pass. I've known people who were killed by drunk drivers, failed organs, overdose, IV acquired diseases, by drug related violence.... As much as I think that the Bible is a fairy tale, I'll not pass by a Salvation Army bell ringer or Girl Scout cookie table to stand on a "principle" of radical intolerance.
I don't care if YaA got clean from a ministry, from willpower or thru a self help group - I applaud him for it. Even if AA has a lower success rate than some fancy Beverly Hills clinic (and the Hollywood crowd seems to debunk that) the fact that it has been around a long time and has spawned so many imitators indicates that it has helped more alcoholics than churches and hospitals have.

At your urging, I looked at the 12 steps. They mention "power greater than ourselves" - which could be anything, and "God as we understood him" - which could be anything. I don't find any references to Jesus, Allah, Jehovah, Shiva, etc. Apparently, whoever wrote the literature might have been a similar brand of deist as the founding fathers.
Then wikipedia lists what they call the 12 traditions and it looks like #6 and #7 kinda puts a kink in your claims of AA taking tax and insurance money.
You'd mentioned N.A. and I found this:

During a time that the Repukes propose diverting even more money from community resources in favor of building more prisons for corporations to get fat off of, I think I'll "jump to the defense of something" that sounds even better when you look at it closer. Whether it's a 12 step program, a soup kitchen or assistance for the elderly - I don't criticize good works and throw out the baby with the bathwater just because somebody says "God" or wears a cross, Star of David or pentacle on a necklace.

Your point is?
You live in a nation that let's you believe what you wish to, but so does the REST of the nation.
And they are just as entitled to believe whatever, as you are not to.
So who's the hypocrite?
You either believe in the RIGHTS of people to believe as they wish, or you do not.
Which is it.
I have no beliefs, and I certainly do not share the same delusion you display. If someone claimed that Spiderman was real, would you not want them to receive professional help?

"Literally" derived of ignorance, or based on more rational reasoning that the corners of the earth could've just included maybe 100 square miles?
The known lands were far more extensive than 10 miles by 10 miles 4500 years ago. There is firm evidence that there was regular trade across at least 3 continents - so "every living thing on the face of the Earth" was not Noah County.
Why do y'all continually try to rationalize something that clearly did not happen is a historical fact?

Where did I ever call addiction "natural selection?"

Also, you are suggesting allowing them to force people to trade one bad addiction for another, that's not very caring. There are other programs available, and again, they present a lower cost with better results than anything based on the "12 step, you are useless and only some god can do anything" junk. You are not supporting positive change at all, I do.

Want to know something, out of more than a hundred people with major addictions that I have known, the few who stop have only one method that has worked, only one ... they simply chose to stop.

May be hard to explain here but I will attempt. Since I was young (before we tend to complicate life) I knew God (Jesus) was real. I could feel His presence..His calling (if you will) on my life. I knew He had purpose for me..I wasn't aware of my sins until I ask Him to save me..(was blind but now I see)...after reaching my teen years I rebelled ... I was typical teen BUT God even then was PROTECTING me..I could give you situations, examples of how He has helped me, protected me, I don't call anything a coincidence or luck. I know when MY God has intervened. God will SHOW you He is real if you want to know, ask Him to reveal Himself to you. Be open to what He shows you tho...don't be in denial mode..I guarantee it would be the BEST choice you could ever make ... Investigate with an open heart and cry out to YOUR maker. He is ALIVE.. He WILL hear you and He will ANSWER. He is crazy in LOVE with YOU kitty. Crazy in love...His ARMS are open. IF PEOPLE could see WHO JESUS REALLY IS....EVERYONE would b RUNNING to Him. Literally RUNNING!
God bless you

It was necessary because they didn't have Google back then. For other people on different continents to hear the Gospel, Jesus told us He was going to tend to them.

Are you now refuting God's ability to be omnipresent by suggesting that God needed Google?

Truly people don't need "OTHER" religions or "another version" of the "HOLY BIBLE". Another great way satan CONFUSES people.
Keep it as close as you can to the KJV...I understand use of. NKJV, NIV, Amplified, The Message, American Standard, Common English, etc.. To help some better understand, but NOT the Book of Mormon or the "Watchtower"....free yourself first then u can "HELP" others thru the Holy Spirit.
Excuse me! please don't compare Jehovah's Witnesses with the Mormons! There is abosutely no comparison. There are over 40,000 different demonations claiming to be Christian and the majority claim to base their teachings on the KJV Bible. Maybe you should take a closer look!

I do read lots of other books. I have read some of the Book of Mormon. There is NO NEED for this book?!
Well, look at how many different denominations we have that all use the same Bible. They all have different doctrines. They interpret the same scripture differently, and they all think they are doing the right way. That is why the second witness is necessary. Even Christ sent out 2 witnesses when He sent the Apostles out to teach.

God is a god of order and structure. I assure you that He meant for there to be one gospel.

No, I'm explaining that communication by people between continents was not possible 2000 years ago. This is why Jesus tended to other sheep. It would be better for them to hear the Gospel from Him personally. The BOM is simply the story of that visit to people in the American continents. Really, you should read the whole thing and decide for yourself. Don't take my word for it.

That's what I'm talking about. Why anyone would want to condemn that which is GOOD-no matter the race, creed or color, just is wayyyy beyond ANY sort of rationality, or even decency.

In fact, that type pf stuff just "bullying", trying to Steal OTHERS peace and harmony-at somebody else's expense.

Where you there, to fully comprehend the dialect of the times?

Ah didn't think so.

Why do you all continually try and act like you know exactly what was what, thousands of years ago?

Isn't easier, and much more rational to just admit, we do NOT "know everything" and stop trying to pretend like we do?
