I am quite used to people being too,'busy', to reply to my posts.

Hi, I haven't forgot you, I just got a little busy today...:)
1) The snake handlers brag that they handle deadly snakes for god.
Answer- My snake died... The Vet couldn't save it...
2) Every sect claims that the holy spirit came to them.
Answer- I'm not every sect, I'm the daughter of 'God Almighty', who was filled with the Holy Spirit after a Baptism in Anaheim, CA. I was 21. To choose not to believe me, is okay, it's a hard thing to comprehend. Again, it was no delusion. I wasn't the only one...
3) You cannot change the definition of a word to suit your beliefs:
Answer- If you say so...
4)I don't believe that there is even one case of proven faith healing and many cases where a person died trying, mostly defenseless children.
Answer- There's been several. I will find them for you..I was a child, healed of a lump that required immediate surgery, my grandmother laid her hands on it,(in the name of Jesus) and it went away within 24 hours.. Doctors were baffled...
5)Indoctrination, you loved and revered your grandmother, so you believed what she taught you.
Answer- That might be one way to look at it... I have questioned her for many things concerning God... I Even told her that I did not believe in God, saying, it can't be true, it's not logical. But God went after me, just like I am doing to you...
6)Didn't jesus turn water into wine? Choosing not to drink has nothing to do with religion.
Answer- Yes he did, and choosing not to drink is personal, on the other hand, if I cause an alcoholic to stumble, or if I were to get drunk, and act foolish,...that person might think that's how Christians can act...Some of my Christian friends drink, I don't... I also don't judge, because I, don't want to be judged.
7)And because there are a lot of nasty things in there that you are required to do!
Answer- Now you lost me on this one. Can you elaborate on what bad things in the Bible, I'm supposed to do?
8)Sounds a wee bit on the arrogant side, but... Well, just maybe I can get you to read your bible more, read up and some history and science.
Answer- Not arrogant, just confident. Okay, What would you have me read? I also like am a fan of 'Science& History'
TBS, Please don't get so caught up in mans interpretation of what God wrote in the Bible. It would confuse anyone. God wants your heart, not your head. What ever you choose to believe, makes no difference in the way I feel about you, or anyone else. I would still call you friend...
ps. I do agree with you about our gun rights...:)
