I am very disturbed by your comments. We are not worried at all that 99% of the people on this forum are not interested in what we have to say, we do know that most of the world hate God and His Word, but there are a few out there that may need help and if just one person needs guidance, it will be worth it all. If you are a Christian, why don't you try and help those out there that are lost and not write us back, for we are getting nowhere fast. I am not judging you that you will not be saved in the end, for God is the final Judge, but I have lots of Christian friends and we are one in Christ. Most of your questions that you are asking us, you should know already unless you are trying to argue. I did not think we were having a debate, for Christians really should not be debating (of which my Christians friends do not dabate for we are on the same page), unless one feels that the other is going to a organization that is not Christian and we have been there and debated with other cults. If people on this forum do not ahere to Scriptures, they are not hurting me, for they are hurting our Creator, so they really are turned off with God. Remember the Apostles when they went door to door, they were to dust their feet off and move on if the people did not accept Christ. You do not know us at all and you have no idea how God has worked in our lives to help others and God Gets The Glory. I do not feel as though we can discuss things because they will turn into arguements because for some reason, we are not on the same page. I do not know what it is, but my husband said last evening, he felt as though most of you want to argue and not listen to God's Word. I am in contact with alot of Christians and really do not feel like they are arguing with us, but with you, we still do not know where you stand with Christ. For if you remove any Scripture and deviate from any Scripture, then we know for sure that we are not one in Christ.
I just asked you simple questions on the stuff you post. I don't think telling people they are going to hell is winning recruits. As a Christian I don't do that. I don't send my money to groups that do that and spend money protecting our kids from homosexuals. We can't discuss things because you play God.

You seem to be under the impression that you hold some authority in here. You don't, nor do people like you. I'll read and respond to whatever I damn well please.

Cute, but my personal favorites are the 8 "I really rather you didnt's" from the Church of FSM.

THE EIGHT I'D REALLY RATHER YOU DIDN'TS

1. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Act Like A Sanctimonious Holier-Than-Thou Ass When Describing My Noodly Goodness. If Some People Don't Believe In Me, That's Okay. Really, I'm Not That Vain. Besides, This Isn't About Them So Don't Change The Subject.

2. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Use My Existence As A Means To Oppress, Subjugate, Punish, Eviscerate, And/Or, You Know, Be Mean To Others. I Don't Require Sacrifices, And Purity Is For Drinking Water, Not People.

3. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Judge People For The Way They Look, Or How They Dress, Or The Way They Talk, Or, Well, Just Play Nice, Okay? Oh, And Get This Through You Thick Heads: Woman=Person, Man=Person. Samey-Samey. One is Not Better Than The Other, Unless We're Talking About Fashion And I'm Sorry, But I Gave That To Women And Some Guys Who Know The Difference Between Teal And Fuchsia.

4. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Indulge In Conduct That Offends Yourself, Or Your Willing, Consenting Partner Of Legal Age AND Mental Maturity. As For Anyone Who Might Object, I Think The Expression Is Go F*** Yourself, Unless They Find That Offensive In Which Case They Can Turn Off The TV For Once And Go For A Walk For A Change.

5. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Challenge The Bigoted, Misogynist, Hateful Ideas Of Others On An Empty Stomach. Eat, Then Go After The B*******.

6. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Build multi million-Dollar Churches/Temples/Mosques/ Shrines To My Noodly Goodness When The Money Could Be Better Spent (Take Your Pick): A. Ending Poverty B. Curing Diseases C. Living In Peace, Loving With Passion, And Lowering The Cost Of Cable. I Might Be A Complex Carbohydrate Omniscient Being, But I Enjoy The Simple Things In Life. I Ought To Know. I AM The Creator.

7. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Go around Telling People I Talk To you. You're Not That Interesting. Get Over Yourself. And I Told You To Love Your Fellow Man, Can't You Take A Hint?

8. I'd Really Rather You Didn't Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You If You Are Into, Um, Stuff That Uses Alot Of Leather/Lubrication/Las Vegas. If The Other Person Is Into It However (Pursuant To #4), Then Have At It, Take Pictures, And For The Love Of Mike, Wear A CONDOM! Honestly It's A Piece Of Rubber, If I Didn't Want It To Feel Good When You Did It I Would Have Added Spikes, Or Something.

I do believe you are wrong on this matter. Most of the people I know are God fearing Christians. They're a bit wide of the mark on being perfect, but I'm not aware of any that claim they are. Some are genuine and some are hypocrites. I'd be willing to agree that some do actually hate Christianity, but they do have their own view of God and do worship and love God. They just don't share your view of God. I also know a few atheists and agnostics. None of them hate God or His Word.
Thank you for your response. I do not agree because there is no inbetween, you are either for Christ or against Christ. You either believe in His Word or you do not, for those who do not ahere to His teachings must not like him very much because they have no fear of what God will do to them in the end of the world. They have that chance to receive until their death, but I personally would not wait because they do not know when your end will come.

I agree 100% with Randy and you do not know him at all and you are making a arguement that is not correct at all. He is trying his best to protect children and I am to. I have written to supervisors, county clerks & Jerry Brown who by the way, his father was very good friends of my father, and Jerry Brown is nothing like Pat Brown was when he was Governor way back when. We are here to help children and I really think you had better Study more of the Scripures because Jesus said in Matthew Chapter 18 verse 6 and I quote: "But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drownded in the depth of the sea." My husband and I watched a video on the internet a few weeks back on this subject of being taught that homosexuality is normal and it made us sick. They showed very small children on the classroom floor listening to their teacher read a book on mommies and mommies or daddys or daddys and this was normal. What ever happened to reading, writing or arithmetic? This is going to hurt our children, for I know that children that are vunerable and have tendencies to go to the same sex will now feel that it is normal when if they had counselors, they would know that it is not normal and they could be changed. How shameful for you to want a gay teacher to teach your children. Thank God my children are raised up and have Christ in their lives, for if I had small children, they would be home schooled. I think it is time to say goodby, for you and I are arguing and I will not go there anymore with you. Have a good life and may God continue to work in your life. Please do not respond to us anymore, for we believe in God's Word and we do not agree with you on much of the subjects we are talking about and I have much to do in my life and I feel as though God is telling me that it is a waste of time to discuss with you any longer. Thank you.
Why don't you post smaller and stop making your posts about YOU. All your posts are about YOU. If you want to talk about YOU, do it at the hair Solon. This topic is not about YOU. How are you going to protect children from homosexuals? That would mean no TV, no outside exposure, no family reunions..No books...No church. No shopping...You already gave us that piece about Pat Brown, it makes no difference, it was different times. How is telling the truth to kids about homosexuals offending Jesus? Didn't God make the homosexual? YOU are the one offending God. What? How shameful to want a gay teacher? I wanted a good teacher period. It was a High School AP class, he is one of the best teachers in the school district. Elk Grove. He can dress like a gay clown everyday as far as I'm concerned, as long as he teaches the subject. He wasn't teaching kids about being gay, he was who he was. YOU are disgusting and a disgrace to be calling yourself a child of God. YOU make me sick. WHO gave you the right to judge me and a teacher like this? It's people like you that give Christians a bad name, you make me sick!

You are dead wrong, for we cannot discuss things because you think that you are right just like I think that we are right and believe me someone is wrong and we will have to wait until the end to see. God has told us to Obey his Commandments and your arguments do not make any sense to us, so we both have to move on to our own journey. We have taken the time to quote many Scripures, but you either do not believe them or ignore them or twist them around, we really do not know, but believe us, this really does not happen in our Studies because we DO NOT deviate from the Word. The Holy Spirit teaches them, we don't, and he shows them the way. This is what Apostle Paul was warning about to the Corinth Church, but he did say to follow him and he was given the revelation of Christ's teachings and we obey what he says. Have a happy and safe journey and May God teach you like we have to be taught daily.

This thread is not about YOU. I have quoted scriptures and you ignore them. I asked you if we can hate homosexuals because of Leviticus and you can't answer, I say get in a good Church, you need some outside help, you are way out of touch. Start loving people for who they are, Let God be God.

Blue Screen of Death
In a surprise announcement today, Microsoft President Steve Ballmer revealed that the Redmond-based company will allow computer resellers and end-users to customize the appearance of the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), the screen that displays when the Windows operating system crashes.

The move comes as the result of numerous focus groups and customer surveys done by Microsoft. Thousands of Microsoft customers were asked, "What do you spend the most time doing on your computer?"

A surprising number of respondents said, "Staring at a Blue Screen of Death." At 54 percent, it was the top answer, beating the second place answer "Downloading XXXScans" by an easy 12 points.

"We immediately recognized this as a great opportunity for ourselves, our channel partners, and especially our customers," explained the excited Ballmer to a room full of reporters.

Immense video displays were used to show images of the new customizable BSOD screen side-by-side with the older static version. Users can select from a collection of "BSOD Themes," allowing them to instead have a Mauve Screen of Death or even a Paisley Screen of Death. Graphics and multimedia content can now be incorporated into the screen, making the BSOD the perfect conduit for delivering product information and entertainment to Windows users.

The BSOD is by far the most recognized feature of the Windows operating system, and as a result, Microsoft has historically insisted on total control over its look and feel. This recent departure from that policy reflects Microsoft's recognition of the Windows desktop itself as the "ultimate information portal." By default, the new BSOD will be configured to show a random selection of Microsoft product information whenever the system crashes. Microsoft channel partners can negotiate with Microsoft for the right to customize the BSOD on systems they ship.

Major computer resellers such as Compaq, Gateway, and Dell are already lining up for premier placement on the new and improved BSOD. Ballmer concluded by getting a dig in against the Open Source community. "This just goes to show that Microsoft continues to innovate at a much faster pace than open source. I have yet to see any evidence that Linux even has a BSOD, let alone a customizable one."

To whom it may concern,

This verse is taken from Second Timothy chapter 3 verse 16-17 and I quote: "All Scripture is given by the inspirition of God, and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be perfect throughly furnished unto all good works." Have a Blessed Day Everyone!!

Care And Feeding Of Your Computer
I've been working on a project at work to ensure all our end users know how to back up data in preparation for company wide computer upgrades. I'm tempted to hand this out to some of our users.

1. Never leave diskettes in the disk drive, as data can leak out of the disk and corrode the inner mechanics of the drive. Diskettes should be rolled up and stored in pencil holders.

2. Diskettes should be cleaned and waxed once a week. Microscopic metal particles can be removed by waving a powerful magnet over the surface of the disk. Any stubborn metallic shavings can be removed with scouring powder and soap. When waxing diskettes, make sure application is even. This will allow the diskettes to spin faster, resulting in better access time.

3. Do not fold diskettes unless they do not fit in the drive. "Big" diskettes may be folded and used in "little" disk drives.

4. Never insert a disk into the drive upside down. The data can fall off the surface of the disk and jam the intricate mechanics of the drive.

5. Diskettes cannot be backed up by running them through the Xerox machine. If your data needs to be backed up, simply insert two diskettes together into the drive whenever you update a document; the data will be recorded on both diskettes.

6. Diskettes should not be inserted into or removed from the drive while the red light is flashing. Doing so could result in smeared or possibly unreadable text. Occasionally the red light continues to flash in what is known as a "hung" or "hooked" state. If your system is "hooking" you, you will probably need to insert several dollars before being allowed to access the disk drive.

7. If your diskette is full and you need more storage space, remove the disk from the drive and shake vigorously for two minutes. This will pack the data ("data compression") enough to allow for more storage. Be sure to cover all the openings with scotch tape to prevent loss of data.

I think that some of the people on the forum may be having high pressure by reading my post!! It really does not bother my husband or myself at all of you are calling me or my husband filthy names or nasty comments, for all we have said is to not read our post and then you will not have a heart attack. It seems as though when we quote Scripture that everybody is in a turmoil. WOW!! Does God's Word bother you that much? Take a break, have a cup a coffee and calm down before you have a stroke. God will still be waiting for you until the end of time. May God Bless your Day!!
