Yesterday I sold a 20-year old electric piano on cragslist. First time I ever did that!
I play a bit of piano and tried to play the guitar once. Better on piano.
Get one of those books that tells you how to play it. Playing music is relaxing a good for the soul.
Enjoy the meatfest!
Bought a book yesterday as well. I do know a little, I used to play electric bass and at least one wind instrument. Compensation for the fact that I cant sing for beans.

Frijoles--and Homer Simpson loves YOU, Hughbe.
HughBe--- Delusional
Frijoles---Prove my delusional Homer is any less delusional than your delusional Jesus
HughBe--- In your mind, the only credible source is a rabbi so ask your master if Jesus was a product of make believe. Besides you know from your teachings,negative, that He was not.
Frijoles---So you cant provide a convincing reason why your cult figure is any less delusional than mine.
HughBe--- YOU belong to a CULT. I am NOT your rabbi and so you shall not believe me, ask them. ALL nonsense that they teach you you deem as BRILLIANT and TRUE.
So you can't offer a reason why your cult figure (Jesus) is any less delusional than mine (Homer).

I would think you would have a lifetime of reflection behind you to answer this most obvious question.

You are very much correct when you say many different denominations.
This also means that not all of those are correct.
So which 1 are ones are correct?

The 1 or ones that put their faith and trust in God and not a man.

Many speak of the Grace of God, but turn around and use many different ways on how someone must earn this grace.

Gods Holy Word MUST be taken as a whole, and MUST be trusted as inspired by God.

Anyone can use the Word of God, and "fit" IT to their mold.

Satan attacked the Word of God from the start, and he has never stopped.
he also attacks our languages.

It is my opinion, that very few preach a true gospel of God.
Ans.

Your post is very circumvent, what are the Signs that some sect or denomination has "Put their trust in God and not a man".

Every sect and denomination claims that "It is guided by the Holy Spirit"

You are right, Satan attacked the Word from the very beginning and there was not much which one could do.

The First one whom Satan mislead was this St. Paul and thru him most of Christians were mislead, so much so that this St. Paul has become the "voice of all Christians".

They know Jesus thru St. Paul and not the other way around.

So I do not know, what is the way for Christians to come back to true path and to true teachings of jesus?

Have you any solution to this problem?

I sold the electic piano 'cause I'm holding out for a real one.

A little (console or upright) Yamaha would make me happy. Used of course.

Have fun with it.

Apropos the 15th and tithing.
I wondered whether they planted cashews.
They also grow on a delicious apple!

Suppose i'll have to read up.
About fruiting and the years this takes.
But somehow it seems sensible to wait that time.

You never told!
We've talked about bass (i meant electric).
So you pictured me with a huge classic bass!?:)))

I learned from pictures too. Motivational too.
Flutes and notes. But pictures work better with guitar.
Piano too untill you get to grips with the grips, so to say
Though i started with acoustic guitar.
Moved to the e bass.
And then repeating scales.
Till i could improvise.
But i like drums, as in african and indian best.
And to relax i have an african thumb-piano on a calebas.
A kind of mini low gudget piano. Idea FR! For the meantime.

The piano i played by ear. Just little catchy things i liked.
A phrase, a couple of cords.
Sometimes someone showed me.
Thus when i had a chance. Good move FR.
And i could sing, a nice mezzo-soprano, dropped to alt.
But both mean you have to always adjust to the shrill sopranos.
(I've been known to cover my ears during operas. Now that's music i'ld rather read from paper. Given the choice of torture-methods.)
Did a stint of Gregorian. And that did mean reading notes.

I kind of gave up bass because of pains in my fret hand from doing the reaches. I am hoping the acoustic will be better since the reaches are not as great. However, I guess I will also have to learn how to pick. All I can do now is flub around blues scales as if it is a bass. But basically I am just looking for a no stress hobby for before bedtime.

On a related topic, my quality of life changed significantly since I signed up for Spotify (10 bucks a month for unlimited music streaming) and bought a Sonos wireless speaker system. SO much better than paying per download on a mp3 (not that I ever did). Plus I get internet radio to boot which is mind boggling in possibilities - Pakistani, Assyrian, Balinese, African radio stations, plus just about any radio station anywhere in the US.

He had learned in his scriptures, about the perseverance quality of the Last Prophet, that was to come into the world, whom Moses and other Jewish prophets had described.
Moses has not described any last prophet, while the other jewish prophets have described a Messiah that must be descendant of king David, restoring Jerusalem, and have to come at the end of the days, ect. All the things that Muhammad had fullfilled, right?

I do wonder if you ever read and understood the Tanakh?
MUQ wrote:
ZAID BIN SANEA left with Omar, got repaid and came back and declared his faith of Islam. He told the prophet I only wanted to test your patience, because no one but a prophet can maintain his calm and patience under these harsh situations.
Muhammad was very patient, then Zaid concluded it must be the prophet. Very logic reasoning.

Oh yeah, back those days how easily people converted into another religion.

I see you believe any tale if they come from Islam, don't you?

rabbee: did Noach, Avraham, Yeetzak, Yaachov and Yoseph read The Written Torah to be Holy? or are you just, soo totally missing the point? that all sinfullness is just, an extreemly unwise choice without G-D.

during the building of the tower of babel. when G-D said Let US, go down and confuse them. was it because they, were doing the right thing? or was it because they, had chosen unwisely? was wwi and wwii commanded to happen, because the whole world was being bad or good? is everything being done on earth today, as sign of the world choosing good or evil and wickedness?

has the whole world chosen the unholy spirit, or holy spirit?

ANALYZING A FLAWED QURAN VERSE:

112nd chapter of Quran that excites MUQ so much:

1) Say, "He is Allah,[who is] One,

2) Allah , the Eternal Refuge.

3) He neither begets nor is born,

4) Nor is there to Him any equivalent."

COMMENTS:

1) Say, "He is Allah,[who is] One

ANALYSIS: By this assertion Muhammad, the slave of Allah, declares that the archetypal being, Allah, that he's in contact with via trance states is one of its kind to the exclusion of rival archetypal beings. It's a megalomanical declaration of a brainwashed "prophet" who insists that the archetypal being - his God - that he adores is the best and unique. On its part, the archetypal being, goads Muhammad, who is completely controlled by this archetypal being, Allah, to announce its supremacy over all other beings. In the Quran, we see several instances of dire warnings being given to apostates and heretics for worshipping other archetypal beings or rival archetypal beings since the jealous and egoistic archetypal being, Allah, is intolerant of dissent and wants no competition from his rivals who may be equal or superior in status and power.

2) Allah , the Eternal Refuge

ANALYSIS: Another typical narcissistic declaration from Allah who sees itself as the only shelter of the whole of creation. Buddha, too, for all his so-called neutrality and wisdom, insisted that before embarking on the path of Buddhahood, his disciples would have to unequivocally seek refuge in Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Jesus also declared that the way to his Father was via him. Chaitanya thought the same about himself and so did Rama, Krishna, Vishnu and others. Surrender to any of these prophets/archetypal beings is supposed to confer blessings/salvation on the seekers but sadly in most ways it is a way of ensnaring the gullible seekers in the bond of limitation and servility and so it retards the free growth of the individualized spirit as each prophet/archetypal being is conditioned by his/its own archetypal limitations. Any attempt on the part of the seekers/disciples to exceed the level of consciousness and energy of the archetypal being to which the seekers have surrendered is met with strong disapproval, rage, jealousy, obstacles and resentment. Pettiness personified.

3) He neither begets nor is born

ANALYSIS: Principle of conservation - energy/consciousness is self-existent and can neither be created nor destroyed. But, from a deeper perspective, an archetypal being like say Allah is a mere formation with its 99 attributes of a particular grade of the manifested unified field of consciousness-energy and so the formation can be withdrawn or dissolved into its seed elements and as such from this viewpoint Allah is not imperishable.

4) 4) Nor is there to Him any equivalent

ANALYSIS: Self-praise by this archetypal being, Allah, and a reiteration of its so-called invincibility and uniqueness over its rivals.

CONCLUSION - An extremely inferior verse of self-adulation indulged in by a petty archetypal being, Allah.
