"Asseating"?!? Another word for "your" Dictionary of "Mispelled" Words.

So Weak. So Lame. So Just. Plain. Really Stupid.

Not for RevKen:
It's reported. I don't want any contact with him before he apologizes. He doesn't respect that. He breaks my boundary.
Not sure why he does that. It is because he has big problems, I think.
Father in Heaven, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, I pray for RevKen, I lay him in your hands and I ask that your Will must happen to him. I give him completely over to you, and I ask that you will give him a new heart, a heart that is as You want it to be, and I pray the same for myself and all other in here.
And I want You to bless him in the Holy Name of Yeshua, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords and all other in here.
Amen.
Insincere.

Rejected and reported.

You didn't get past step one. I have given you the tools to do so several times. Apparently it all goes over your head, but proof positive exists. You can know for certain that God exists and the the Bible is true: James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
Over verses make it plain that you must reform your life to make yourself open to the Holy Spirit.
If you really 'dismissed' God's many explicit commands against all homosexual behavior, you wouldn't be here 24/7 considering yourself waste water. You are obviously having enormous issues.
You know what it takes to put your life on the right track: repent and follow Jesus. It's the only road to happiness.
Wickedness was never happiness. Homosexual behavior leads to eternal punishment.
Prove your God exists using tangible and verifiable, non-ontological evidence.
Prove your God is the right God.
Prove your book is God's real book.
Prove your book has never been mistranslated or misinterpreted.
Prove that your interpretation is the correct interpretation.
Good Luck with that DAVID.
Your two-bit psycho babble is dismissed along with your lies and condemnations.

Still lying about your identity David? What a Jackass.

More worthless opinions of a foolish man.

More circular reasoning.

More silly phycho-babble mixed with Bible babble.

Prove your God exists using tangible and verifiable, non-ontological evidence.
Prove your God is the right God.
Prove your book is God's real book.
Prove your book has never been mistranslated or misinterpreted.

Not for RevKen:
Here he tries to control me. He wants to decide whether I shall pray or not, and he tries to do it in a respectfully way?
It's all manipulation and control isn't it?
He tries to attack me and tell me what to do?
What I do is observing him, analyzing him and praying for him, and that's not manipulation?
The definition of manipulation, control and so on might be important here?
It seems to me that RevKen has problems when it comes to manipulation, control, insulting+++
So I pray for him:
In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost I pray that RevKen shall be layed in your hands Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that Your will shall happen to him, and I ask that he shall be blessed with all good things:
3. John, vers 2:
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
That is for myself as well; All these prayers and I want it to be for everybody in here.
In the Name of the One, Yeshua.
Amen
No. You are the one who is the control freak. You are the one crossing other people's boundaries and then when they reply to you, you feign injury.

I did not ask you to refrain from prayer.

I asked you, respectfully, to please refrain from praying for me, specifically. I regard such prayers as a clear trespass, because I think you are insincere.

Therefore, your prayers for me are not for my benefit. They are instead, willfully destructive.

Pray all you want. Just leave me out, please. Don't put me in your prayers. Simple enough. Now let's see if you can have enough respect for the other person to do it.

Rev. Ken
What does he do here? He tries to control whether I shall pray for him or not, but actually we are not in dialogue because he owes me an excuse, so he can't reach me?

He can't talk to me or influence me as long as he doesn't bow down and say sorry for his terrible behaviour and starts to be respectful?

If that happens we might be in dialogue? but he can't reach me now?

He continously breaks my boundaries.

He didn't ask me to refrain from prayer. He is right in that I guess. He just didn't want me to pray for him, but he can't reach me, because we are not in dialogue.

I guess he is right in what he says. The problem is that he can't reach me. We are not in dialogue?:)

So what he says is not for me?

At the end he might try to control me. He doesn't want me to pray for him, and he tries to make me feel guilty if I do.

The problem is that I don't "hear" him. We are not in dialogue. There is something between us, and that is his terrible behaviour that he hasn't repented of.

If he did, we might be in dialogue, and I might hear him, listen to him and respect him. Now he continously shooting at me, and he hasn't repented for his old sins.

He is like a terrorist? And it is not right to dialogue with terrorists?

I think he is right, but there is only one problem. We are not in dialogue? He can't reach me because he hasn't repented of his evil terrible behaviour.

So then I might be free to do whatever I want:

It seems to me that RevKen is proud and has a lot of problems.

I can't change him.

Lord Yeshua, I put him in your hands and let Your Will happen to him.

Amen.

Good point.. I just want to see the fighting stop. I figured I might ask nicely? Idk.. Male, female, hermaphrodite, heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, we are all humans. All the same. I'm straight, some are and some are not. I want to know why we can't get along. That's my only reason for being here.

MMM,
I am not interested in your excuses.
I have asked you to leave me OUT of your prayers.
You continuously violate the boundaries of people with your protestations, feigns of injury, curses and supposedly benign prayers.
No thanks. Not interested.
It's reported of course. It seems that he doesn't threat MMM very well.

I don't know who MMM is, but I haven't seen that someone called MMM has prayed for him lately. Have you?

Maybe Revken is confused? If he is, he has problems. Maybe he needs prayer? My experience is that RevKen has problems. He injures people, laughs at people...

So Lord Yeshua, I leave him in Your hands. Let Your Will happen to him, and bless him and all other in here. In the Name of Yeshua. Amen.

Probably no more so than any heterosexuals here.

This particular thread is on The Episcopal Church Forum of Topix under the thread heading: "Homosexuality and the Bible."

It is supposed to be a discussion about how the Bible has been interpreted to present guidance in these issues.

Unfortunately, you and some others here are trolling the Topix threads for psychic gratification and are landing here and in other places in ignorance of Topix Terms of Service.

Why I won’t be cheering for old Notre Dame
Posted by Melinda Henneberger on December 4, 2012 at 11:02 pm-- Everyone’s always saying how God’s on Notre Dame’s side,” she added.“And I think,‘How could he be?’“

Well, since you asked — and many of my friends have, some more than once — no, I will not be cheering for my alma mater, the University of Notre Dame, to win big-time college football’s championship on Jan. 7. What’s really surprising me are those who believe as I do that two players on the team have committed serious criminal acts – sexual assault in one case, and rape in another — but assumed that I’d support the team anyway, just as they are.

Sexual violations of all kinds happen on every campus, I know, and neither man will ever be found guilty in court; one of the victims is dead and the other, according to the Notre Dame student who drove her to the ER afterward, in February 2011, decided to keep her mouth shut at least in part because she’d seen what happened to the first woman. Neither player has ever even been named, and won’t be here, either, since neither was charged with a crime.

The Department of Education’s civil rights office is well aware of the second case, though; in fact, federal investigators were on campus when it occurred, as part of a seven-month probe into the way Notre Dame handles such reports. And as a result, with its Title IX funding on the line, the university marked the 40th anniversary of coeducation in 2012 by changing the way it investigates sexual assault for the second time in two years.
