<quoted text>You're being stupid. I read your "source" (and I put source in quotation marks because I doubt you've read it), and all he says is that old english is more similar to german than modern english is to german.
If you don't mind you are stupid.
In his works, he gave us an insight on the closeness of old English to modern German.
And he also made mention of old English having a closer relationship with modern German than modern English.
Until then, keep babbling.

<quoted text>Maybe you are challenging a point that I wasn't making. I was trying to get a handle on the difference between faith and confidence. I formally believed they were close to the same thing, except that faith was more the "feeling" that goes with great confidence. These days I notice a kind of insistence that "faith" is something beyond mere confidence. Maybe it has been that way long since, but I guess I wasn't paying attention.

Tell me. In some contexts "faith" still means having great confidence, is that not so? In such contexts one might define it as confidence to the point of "feeling" certain, and yet be mindful that a human's feeling of certainty may leave much to be desired depending on his understanding of all the factors in play.

I am stuck, with the idea that faith is just an extreme of confidence in all cases. If so, I still recommend that confidence or faith, either one, be backed up with plenty of evidence, and repeatability by everyone else, like they say science is supposed to do. That kind of confidence or faith seems to me to have more merit.

I don't get this other context where "faith" is supposed to float free of ordinary evidence and become different from mere confidence. So I am asking is not my recommendation about good evidence, obvious to all not a better accessory to faith or confidence than faith that does not need evidence? Or if not, where am I missing the point?
Faith does not require evidence. Faith is belief without seeing. You can feel the presence of God you know he is there. The idea God would disapprove of me leaves me feeling alone scared. I didn't know this until I accepted Christ now I can't imagine not going to God in prayer and feeling comfort. It's hard to explain as anything other than I know God is there because I feel a physical presence. I know the whole idea sounds crazy but for me it would be like denying to sun or the wind.

<quoted text>Evidence of what? What is your exact claim?
If you are too blind to see that, it is up to you.
Modern English sprang up from old English but it also had influences from several other European and world languages. This is the reason why old English is different from the modern English.
That old English is similar to modern German than to modern English.
Modern English is a construction work, unique to England.

So it's just a presence you feel what does he do for you how does he work in your life?
How do you know it is God that of which the Christians are speaking of the one we trust in or so should?
So to see him then as a Father do you do that one of all time Ruler if there would be one would he be that not to confuse one with 3 as in a ghost a God and man the Son...Because just in case if this God ever I mean someone forbid would be a one of great horror quite an opposite of what one would think a GOD may be then action would have to be taken don't you think?
I mean we do have to look at all that suffers etc...Why is that to man'
s freedom still to what a spirit would be how a feeling what surrounds us does for us?
because one just can't be sure now is HE this that or the other?

<quoted text>Is it really that? Or, is it a result of how our society is going. Seems as soon as the paddle was taken out of the hands of parents and teachers the number of thug rats exploded. Correct me if I'm wrong.
If their is no wrong or right if a parent has no moral center how is the parent to teach morals? The paddle is just a stick. Moms and dads fight kids fight mom and dad do drugs kids do drugs mom and dad sleep around kids will too. What teaches morals who says what's right? Each man is right in his own eyes. The 10 commandments still holds truth yet we ignore them and teach the kids it's a myth. If the bible is myth if no God why should I not kill why not steal why not commit adultery why not lie its just a myth right?

Since we all dream, fall into trance, get revelations and the likes, there is a lot of evidence of a soul.
After death, the body will return to the soil as sand or dust, while the soul or spirit, will return to God for judgement.

Thanks, but you do know that death does not have another name.
Death is universal, and also an assurance.

So we are all then in Gods hot seat presently...

Now that is a concept we are indeed then inside some bubble or we are outward of the real atmosphere...,...

That is why Nature is adjusting...

Father has his ways is all I can say...

So to death is it than to watch other people die and does it not matter anylonger why death was then or is...

I think not all dead SPIRITS for one wouldn't have to go anywhere...
Other than to make contacts...for a while...Time's ones own to no one's knowledge...So it seems...it could be!

Dreams, trance, revelations and blah blah blah are all observable biological processes in the brain. Not evidence of a soul.
