The night before they thought every kid a goner.
The lady with the dog too.
Was it you yesterday told me that is the way They live there?
I was just commenting on the interviews:) not on whose prayers were answered. Or why.
If you make comments about prayers being answered (which you implied) you must expect to be asked to comment about the prayers that weren't answered. I'll bet you $1000 that many, if not most of the loved ones of those who died are "prayerful people," and prayed damn hard for their survival, also.

Oh my

the string and the eruvs. At thAt point in policemen book. Herbivore island

Hubby worked for foundation company. Lol. They almost literally ran into the strings in Miami beach in order to get a crane in to do their work. Big negotiatiwons. I think they resolved them let them go in as long as they were were put back up by the Sabbath. Seems they have them all over the beach.

When I first moved to Fla. The only place you could get any deli food was Wolfies on Miami Beach. No bagels anywhere else .either. would be a real outing just to go eat!!!!

Was used to new York:(

<quoted text>Yes, and this business of "God sent this tornado, but he's going to keep me safe from it if I pray," is what I get so tired of hearing. Sorry, Rose, but I find it so frustrating when the prayer itself is considered more important than the results. If that's the case, why pray?
Results are what is needed - keeping people safe, and taking care of them is done by people, because if God was going to do it, He would just do it. There wouldn't be anything to be safe FROM.
The parents and teachers of the kids who drowned, and likely the kids themselves, were praying too. Did God answer the prayers of the other teachers and parents, and the lady and her dog, but not those 22 kids?
It's entirely arbitrary.
It's as a ringing cymbal, a clanging gong....just noise.
Not going to argue again. Just to say He set up nature .He does not send this storm or that . They follow conditions that cause them.

When we have heaven on earth someday.. there will be no storms. Until then there will. This goes back to blaming God for each bad thing. Even though not seeming to believe in Him

From your posts about the you seem to feel man had something to do with this weather. Ok .
I think it comes in cycles . That I have seen for myself here in Fla.

Hurricanes bad in the sixties. Then not for decades. Now we get more.

It's the laws of nature responding to conditions that occur. It's tragic . I hate it. It scares me .

But my comment was about the people who were thankful to be saved.
They have a great spirit. Most of them seemed to say we will recover.
AGAIN this all came from an NBC news special.

I wasn't starting up another conversation about the God I believe in. REALLY. Told you before I am obviously not qualified to not be a,stumbling block to others .:)

as I said just reporting on the people. What hero's there were..And what THEY said. I wanted tough each and every one if them.

<quoted text>So, the ones who lost their children...how did all that prayer help them?
Did God spare some kids because their parents prayed harder?
Or did he just say 'yes' to some, and 'no' to others, arbitrarily?
One more thing on the people . And the story. According to it they have been trying to jump through hoops from Fema to get more basements built.
They are determined the new school will have them!!! And good on them..shame on Fema. Or whatever stops them . AGSIN mistreating what they said. The reporters on that.
The people were so nice. Not cursing or blaming. That is what impressed me.

Let me get this straight..........
Your claim is that jesus spoke about "hell" 13 times ...... 700 years before the first recorded use of the word hel/hell?
Was your fabled jesus a time traveler?
The facts suggest that jesus (if he even existed) most likely did not use the word Hel/hel. That is, unless you want to believe he was a time traveler, a teleporter, and that he knew and spoke Old English and then distorted the meaning of the word.
I'm certain you'll turn a blind eye toward the facts and puke more about what you believe and try to pass your beliefs off as facts.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hell#Etymology_a...
Go and check out the section on ETYMOLOGY. Maybe you'll learn something.
Why do many who claim the bible is fake, believe anything written against it, is true?

Not saying you, but you trust the source you rely on, could it be, becouse you hate thinking there may just be a Hell? Join the crowd.

When I looked uo my Sin, I didn't like what it said ONE BIT!
AND I TRIED looking it up in another spot "IN THE SAME BIBLE " YET IT SAID THE SAME THING, AND I HATED IT AS WELL. BUT VERY THANKFUL I DIDN'T DO A INTERNET SEARCH, AND FOUND SOMETHING TELLING ME I'M ALL GOOD.

INSTEAD THE WORD OF GOD SAID I'M ALL BAD, AND HE IS ALL GOOD, AND HE CAN MAKE ME GOOD, IN HIS EYES, WHICH IS ALL THAT MATTERS.

HE DID A WEEK OR TWO LATER.

No jesus didn't say hell, since He didnt use english "He knew english, now that I'm thinking about it " but didn't use english.

If He was here in us today, He would say Hell. People know what that means.

The word rapture, is not in the bible either, but the phrase, they shall be caught up together and forever with the Lord is. My version on that, look it up, if you wish.

A dark place where there will be nashing of teeth is there, call it what you will, it was prepared for the devil and his angels, so it is not a good place.

Totally agree. Just saying they all said on THAT program they prayed.
Did Gwd give inspiration to use the bathrooms. I can believe He might have. DID He help anyone. PERSONALLY I believe He did. And not asking anyone to agree. Even if only their belief helped them ..they all said they prayed. As I did in storms. BIG time. But that did not stop me from putting up shutters!!

But those people did help themselves. And the ones I saw..instead of crying and cursing were obviously survivors. And they thanked the God they believe on that things were not worse.

And I an thankful at least on this program the news reporters were not interviewing the parents of the victims. Maybe the lady on that. Other shows who didn't think to help the old lady was out looking for them.who knows but NBC showed a lot of class in this story.

I hate when they run after people who are suffering to get a story like what I saw after Katrina.(Nit giving them water and such..at least on camera) I have seen them ask like murder victims families..which we see a lot here. How do you feel about your wife..etc getting shot down in broad daylight. Makes me want to yell at reporters!!

Anyway I still have those people in Moore in my prayers.

Nice to see you, Rose.
Saw your link.

The report I was speaking on was last nite an NBC special.

But your link showed also the strength of those people for sure. She didn't holler at Blitzer. Didn't make a big deal. Was just glad to be alive. And said what she said. Good on her

And you are being reported for not being on topic. remember, this is an abortion forum where people who support pro life give a voice for the unwanted and stand up for the unborn , the most vulnerable.

I wrote alot and lost it, so I'll just say God didn't send the storm, He only allows things like that, which is a result from a fallen world.

If you build you house on the ocean shore, why by so shocked when it gets leveled by a hutticane, THAT HAS A LONG HISTORY OF HITTING SHORE, same with tornados.rr

Good answer, and there were no storms in the garden if eden either.
Many say this kinda stuff about God, it is.like a young lady having alot of sex, then blamming God when she gets pregnant?!?!

When new orleans was destroyed I even heard on preacher say GOD DID IT, to destroy those fags!!! This is a lie. Yet you see it on both ends.

Like elise mentioned, I'm sure many who prayed, didn't get "their " results, and I don't know why? God answers prayer the way He sees fit, but I don't believe those who have never believed or cared for God gets any prayer answered, unless it is God save my soul, like the thieves on the cross, both thieves ask something of Jesus, one ask Him to save him, get him off, so he could go about his business of not believing and back to.life as usual. The other REALIZED WHO HE WAS, AND THAT JESUS WAS GOD AND HE NEEDED HIS SALVATION.

It is a perfect example of how one can come to Christ, and another looses their soul.. both were theives and sinners, so what was the difference???:)

Same thing during this tornado, that God didn't send, only allowed.
As you can see, I'm speaking to others not you. Good day to you Rose :)

Why on earth would you do that. you know I have told you you may have problems but I believed you were sincere in believing in God.

Maybe you do but you have singled me out ny accusing me of being someone else and for not being a,Christians or for being a ringer.

Yes reporters want news that sells. People love the bad, and ugly, more then good. Just another example of what is in the heart of folks :(

I had a friend thats a paromedic, that told me, there is no atheist in a bad wreck. They all call upon God, but again like the thief on the cross, what are they praying God save me, and my loved ones, BUT what their heart intent is, is what God sees.

The one thief wanted temperol salvation, the other eternal.

And it was the people that helped.
God uses people to carry out His plans, another reason Angels look at us and go what!?!?!??

Lol. I do as well.
