I believe I used the word false as referring to God's anger in the Old Testament with the people worshipping other gods.
I know I did say false priests requiring sacrifices of virgins in those days. And babies. But I was referring to Baal and those.in the OT
I also remember sayin that God did not want us worshipping false gods.That can mean anything from fame to money.
I do not think I said yours was a false God. I wasn't even sure you believed in one and I said so. Really had no idea.
Playa,said she doesn't.
Anyway I tried very hard to make no offensive statements. You are all welcome to believe as you choose. I obviously fell short in my explanations regarding God as a,loving parent.
POINT IS my posting on this is bringing out negativity and worse on here with this subject. That is my fault NOT Gods . So decided for me to change subject.
Rosesz, good morning! Question: Do you think Joel Osteen is sending a righteous message when he preaches that God wants us to be wealthy? I was raised that we should not pray for material things. We see these ministers living in opulent luxury...what gives?

The more intensive heartworm treatment has worked for all but one of her dogs, whose heart was too far gone. If yours is healthy otherwise, then you have a good chance of success.

Good to know. On the vest...It's been about 8 years or more and she has had no repeat. Thank God and that Humane Society vet. But good thing I basically ran out with her that morning or shed be a goner. She's nuts but we love her.:)

<quoted text>Rosesz does a lot of posting from a mischievous device she refers to as 'Madam Kindle'...resulting in oft-misspelled and confusing text. Not her failing, as she is a highly intelligent person, but that of the device, which is geared to reading rather than writing, and hence has some very interesting auto-correct offerings. The vast majority of us are able to look past MK's foibles, and attend to the intentions of its user. Some of us, however, are petty assholes, who prefer disparagement to debate, and find a source of 'pleasure'(?) in niggling at Rose, who does not deserve it...

This one to whom you've replied here, however, is a mole rat (probably the naked variety)

which unfortunately has burrowed its way on to this forum - ostensibly for the purpose of chucking its fecal matter and old nesting material out of its hole.
Ladilulu has found much better ways to occupy her time, and has not posted on Topix for months.

Will share a bit. HUBBY got me the newer one for moms day ..Christmas ..And birthday. Of chose now he can use mine . Have to show him how to ..But it's good fir what He wants. He would reservoirs.

But this one is much better a bit. But still had the same very odd corrections and if I type fast words run together.

Never enlightening it but you're right. They are made for reading!!!

As far as Razz ..knit goes. I really have no idea why the poor thing obsessed on me.

And btw. Ladilu did post on here couple of days ago . I said hi but she may not remember me.

Have heard him a couple of times. Not for me to know his heart.
He says a lot of the right things..And he seems to really believe in the wealth part. But Jesus actually did not say we should acquire the things of this world.

Have not listened to enough of Him to know what scripture he uses for his reasoning.

He is popular ..Will give him that. Jesus says God watches over us and wants us not to worry. So I don't think it's wrong to ask things like to have enough to live on if you retire. Or to do well at your job. It to watch over your loved ones. But by everything I know He wants us to lift up and help ourselves. When we can .to have enough to help others in trouble.

Things like that..I have had things work out for me that I credit to God. Like finding my son..just too many so called coincidences involved. Have had answer to prayer fir sure on other things.

Best answer is I think I have only watched parts of his sermons. Maybe 3times at most.

Or it could be like the bible teaches, that He offsres His grace "gift " to all and any, BUT the majority wants nothing to do with Him??

In my parents' Orthodox Christian household, we were taught to pray for insight, guidance, wisdom, enlightenment, etc. The idea is that those things are tools for achieving what is necessary for true happiness.

You know, the most interesting people are the insane, and the most brilliant people rarely make sense to others. I obviously cut the poster "ZEF" from this list, as I've seen his insanity and can find no redeeming qualities in it. Your mileage may vary.
ZEF is unquestionably a loon, and for a while, I believed it to be a member of an alien species....or possibly an avenging angel with a distinct lack of access to bicarbonate of soda, which could have relieved it's galloping indigestion......but as it turns out, it's just an old dying Nazi, with a feral loathing of women, and a raging case of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.

Posting to it is futile, but sometimes I get bored enough to take a whack at it.

(Also, ZEF is of indeterminate gender.)

The city I was in when I heard residences ran to basement was Okmulgee. They said at that time late 60s they never got hit.
But thought hurricanes were scary. My lunchcounter patrons where I worked. Lol. Told me don't be afraid we'll protect you ..such nice people!!
The people in Oklahoma are unquestionably some of the nicest folks to be found anywhere on the planet. In the main, they are quite possibly the most giving of people whom I have ever had the privilege to meet.

Unfortunately, they are also UBER-conservative in their politics, bigoted to the extreme against those of a sexual orientation differing from unbendingly heterosexual, and tend to thump their Bibles without once having read them, or, having read them, quite bent on cherry-picking the verses of which they approve.

Leviticus comes immediately to mind, but I offered earlier not to go there, so I won't tarry on that particular path....

I'm very glad you are part of it, Rose.

Very true and great things to pray for. But we do if inclined tend to pray when we have trouble. Or say need a job going on an interview.

But with the qualities you spoke of Will get you through life a lot better than whining. Or having your hand out.

Like I said I have no idea what Osteen is using for scripture.

But the thing is He gets people who may be have never heard..thinking of God. He really packs them in for sure.

Thanks for that and the consideration.

Isn't Okmulgee near Tulsa? I loved it when they had like a fair or something. The native Americans with all the color. And the Ball glass factory. Probably gone now.

Then for a few months was in Norman. Beautiful town. Worked at the college. Story why is boring but almost got to go to school there.

Lol BOOMER SOONER.

Get over it, knitwit.

Go pray for something.

(I suggest a....well....you'll figure it out.

Maybe.)

Anyway, if you could comprehend what you read, you'd know that practice makes perfect, and that Rosesz has upgraded since Mother's Day.

But we all know what the odds are on that miracle.

I'm thinking you'll get your intelligence on the day before your 88th birthday, and on your birthday, you'll have had so many intelligent thoughts, your head will explode.

But you know, I could easily be wrong.

Hey rose a good friend of mine died two years ago of cancer. She was 57 and had been saved 6 years. I must say I wasn't a big fan of osteen, but she was in a bad car wreck about 12 years ago and it left her disabled, and she killed a 26 yo mother of a two year old girl. She was very depressed over it all, and said people calling her saying they would pray for her or invited her to church only made her angry.since they never offered to bring her groceries or help in any way, but one lady did help her, and one night she came across joel o, and said his preaching was soft enough that she listened, after a while she started looking forward to him. She did start going to church with the one lady, and after two weeks she was saved, at her home. She told me she didn't know why she didn't do it at church, but after she got home, she got on her knees and asked God to save her, after confessing all the sins she knew, and He did! She was forever changed, and went to be with Him two years ago. It caused me to have a new look at Joel :)

I still don't like how he does the abc repeat after me, and you're saved thing at the end of his service, but God has many tools, even feather dusters :)

What's your agenda with this witch hunt of yours? Don't you have something better to do? There must be a clinic that you want to harass.
