The girl whirls and swats at the officer, and he proceeds to punch her in the face.

The officerís blow to the mentally disturbed teen snapped her head back, and appeared to be delivered with full force.

Other officers join in, wrestling the girl to the ground and spraying her with Mace.

You certainly do find yourself amusing. Problem is, nobody else does. So you're YUKYUKYUK'ing at yourself. I believe that could be a sign of mental illness. You should google your symptoms and find out, troll.

Nobody? That's the global talk of children. Does Mommie know you're still up? Or would you have to look it up?

Hi, I have taken the time and tried twice in this site where you have written me and it is not going through. I wrote Topix and told them that I thought perhaps that I was being descriminated against because of being a Christian because half of what I write does not make it anywhere. I will try again tomorrow and see what happens or perhaps you could look me up on facebook for I have a place there where I write alot about my faith in Christ. Thank you so much for your note. May God be with you.
First off, if you want to carry this discussion elsewhere you should at least be considerate enough to provide a link to the location. All you need to do is copy and paste the URL for that location into your reply. Be aware though, topix, by format, not by discrimination, editing, or any nefarious means will crop that URL if it is a lengthy one and the link will be broken. So it is best to put the URL up in pieces that can be reconnected and pasted into a window.
Second, I have no facebook account, so a lot of it is unavailable to me. Unlike many people I feel no need to post up my most banal daily observations or all my personal details so they be swiped and result in future problems for me.
Third,, I really donít think Topix goes around censoring someone for their religious views. Iíve had posts disappear into the ether on an occasion or two but attribute that to glitches in the fabric. Iíve subsequently posted the exact same thing and had it go through unabated. The key is to draft any reply that might be lengthy in a Microsoft word document or similar program and then copy & paste it into a Topix reply window. This means all you need to do is paste it again for a second attempt.
Finally, go ahead and give a reply in here. That would be the simplest approach. So, once again:

~~~~~~~~~~
Would you be willing to explain a couple of things to me?

I cannot for the life of me see a rational relationship between Christ dying and you getting forgiven for your sins. It appears to be a non sequitur to me. I also cannot see anyone being anything less than embarrassed if someone else had to die for their bad behavior.

I hadn't given the notion much thought until I had a lengthy conversation with one of my brothers. He's deeply religious. He is Methodist and devout but questions things that don't seem to make sense.

My father, a devout Christian too, surmised that Christ didn't actually die on the cross. The cause of death is asphyxiation as the muscles that expand and contract the chest volume to inhale and exhale can't operate efficiently while one is hanging by the arms. Death typically takes several days. He wasn't left up on his cross for days as was typical in the process. He was taken down and then carried to his tomb where he arose three days later. By description the whole process is rather horrendous. Pop's theory was he went into shock and recovered some days later.
~~~~~~~~~~

If you already posted a reply to the last bit on here, my apologies. Give me some direction on where to find it, in here. Specific post numbers are most valuable. Failing that, the date and approximate time eases the task of finding it.

I wrote a full page about 20 minutes ago and it did not go on the forum. It must have been to long, so I will only address your comments on my posts about ready Scripture and by what Authority. My husband and I are in this together, for he does not type, but he listens to all that I write to and agrees that I am in the right Spirit of Christ to write what I write. This forum by all means is not a Church or any type of Christian gathering. In my opinion, it is the most wicked forum I have ever addressed. I have my husband's covering in writing on this forum, for he says that same things that I say all the time. I do not know if you are trying to trap me, but I do obey God's Word as much as possible, for I am still learning. I do things different today than I would have done 5 years ago, because I am still learning. I use to go to the movie theatres of which I really enjoyed very much, now I would not go near them with a 10 foot pole. There is nothing of course in Scripture about a movie theatres, but the Holy Spirit is with me and has let me know through my Spirit that I do not belong there.
I am very busy right now, but will get back to you about homosexuality. I have lots to say in God's Word if you are willing to hear what God says for his word is the same "YESTERAY, TODAY AND FOREVER". Amen & Amen
1.) If you're going to write a long response to someone's comment it's best to do it in a Microsoft word document. Then cut and paste it here.
There is a glitch in the system that will cause you to lose a post if you spend too much time writing it on the TOPIX website.
I've lost many posts because I took too much time.
It's like the system will "time you out" after a certain period of time.

2.) This forum may be wicked, but that's where Christ thrives. Wouldn't you agree? He didn't spend his time "preaching to the choir". Rather, he went to the people who He believed needed to hear His message. So don't give up on this forum.

3.) How would we know if God inspired people to write new scripture? Would we believe anyone who claimed that God had moved him/her to add to the Books of the Bible?
Yet, that's exactly what happened with the New Testament. That's why Jews don't study the New Testament as a part of their belief.
The ancient Hebrews didn't believe that Christ was the Messiah. They don't believe that they will be saved through their belief in Christ.
But just over 2000 years ago, a sect of people began following Christ. We call ourselves Christians. And many, just like the ancient Jews, believe no more material has been inspired by God ever since.
The Mormons believe that Christ contacted Joseph Smith Jr. and added additional information to Christianity. These additional works can be found in "The Book of Mormon", "Doctrine and Covenants" and the "Pearl of Great Price".
Are they wrong? Were the ancient Jews wrong to believe that the Books of the New Testament shouldn't be followed?
Things aren't so cut and dry.

Here's what I believe... I believe in Yahweh, the God of Judaism, the Father of Christ. And I believe in Christ. And I believe that Christ's birth, life, death, and resurrection represented a new covenant between God and mankind.
No longer were God's people required to follow the 613 laws and commandments of the Old Testament. There is evidence of this belief throughout the New Testament.
We are now saved by our belief in Christ; through our good deeds to others and our belief in God. Christ died for our sins.
I think we have some common beliefs.
Obviously, I don't make these comments lightly. See, I've been told for too long that being gay is a sin. And I've spent a great deal of time studying to see if that is true. I've also spent a long time in prayerful communication with God and the Holy Spirit.
I didn't come to my conclusions without research, questioning, and challenging myself.
