<quoted text>Mustard seed has 11 letters in it. I saw a bluejay yesterday. Have a nice night..........remember when we used to laugh about putting all this time into a question and getting nothing back? I was thinking about that for some reason. Well I guess its better than a kick in the face LOL. I have always found it interesting the time people will put into misusing the Bible (ie to hide an insult or bash someone over the head with) but wont spend any time talking about what they claim to love and follow. Suddenly its like pulling teeth. Well now ur post made me think twice and got two responses. Even if u dont like them its gotta be better than a kick in the teeth LOL..(T) Peace
Okay...I went back and reread this...I get it now. I must have had a brain freeze earlier...couldn't figure out the 11 letters and the bluejay...still don't but...LOL

At least we have had a few minutes of humor tonight...

The 11 letters and bluejay comments had no particular reasoning behind them.It was just meant to be barely realted and nonsensical....which in hindsight probably was too much so since only I knew what I was thinking! LOL. It is just how I feel sometimes as far as an answer I get back has nothing to do with what I asked. 2 years of posting to Gary and Jaws doesnt help my tolerance for people wasting my time! But I appreciate the time and effort you put into your questions and answers even more so after seeing how rare it is. I knew by ur posts u took mine in a bad way but i decided guessing how just might have made it worse so thought it best to let u figure it out which i knew you would. I enjoyed the conversation and laughs as well.(T) PEACE

Okay...I get it now. I thought you were slamming me! Paranoid I guess.
I also agree with your thoughts on this. I have some to add but I am beyond thinking tonight...I think!
I will say this...it is easy to quote scripture...even us heathens can do that. It is much harder for people to actually say how that scripture affects their lives...what it means to them.
That is my issue in a nutshell. Someone doesnt have to be a scholar (who is?), they dont have to argue about it, heck they dont even have to debate it....but why cant someone simply say this is what it means to me and this is how I think it applies to our lives or my life today? I mean I never see this being a problem when someone wants to use the Bible to insult or condemn someone, then they are crystal clear on what they think a verse means and how it should be applied. But when it has to do with them, even in a good way...nada. It is what it is I guess.(T) PEACE

So far Sandy has only ripped some siding of my house. saw a pumpkon being blown down the street by the wind, I thought that was pretty cool. The eye passed right over us. Now comes the backside of it with less rain but more wind.
Could be a lot worse. My heart goes out to those who died, those who are homeless and those who are unable to help but want to. Many cities had to halt rescue operations until daybreak.
I havent seen any updates...didnt know there were already fatalities...that sucks. Can you imagine taking a pumpkin to the head at like 80mph? That would have been cool to see though but wonder where it ended up? I feel bad for people too..many insurances dont cover natural disasters..in an already bad economy how can people take this kind of hit? Just crappy circumstances.(T) PEACE

Today's Prayer

Dear God, I praise you and thank you for who you are. Please guide me and help me when I face conflict and disagreement with others. Help me to follow biblical principles. Sometimes I'm just "hard-headed" and do not want to give in to compromise, even when either view, decision, desire is biblical. Help me to carefully consider the other person's perspective and situation. And if someone has wronged me, give me courage to confront them in a spirit of love and reconciliation. If they will not hear me, show me who should go with me to talk with the person. When necessary, help me to continue on and take steps based on Your Word. I want to do what is right, and as much as possible, to live peaceably with all people. Please forgive me where I have failed, and give me the grace and wisdom to do better; to do what is right. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.

Do you know Pastor Simmons from Nth. Carolina? Saw him on the TV last night. Think he was speaking on Revelation, but missed more due to changing to another program just as I tuned in!
Love you and Shalom... on the road!
Hey PW.....I didn't quite understand the Patmos conversation except that when you were there...there was "end times" demonstrations? Right? The only one that we have heard about is the Mayan Calendar saying the end of the world will be December 22,2012......

No I haven't heard about him...What is Pastor Simmons first name? And where in NC is his church?

Keep on the road....:-)

Thanx Skom... that was my point only! I know the extra space was granted him, and that should be more than some folk alone could with for... allowing more for those who can use here.
I don't know also if you are interested enough to check my post to Epi and in here just back a page... but these scare-mongers are 'not standing in the Light' and just planting a post without ID.
Have family in NYC and Long Island also, so watching there. One at Chelsea where a building collapsed. No... the scaremongering even with this storm does not worry me, but is cruel for any who have no understanding.
It is like all things re Nature, which rains down on the just and the unjust... as one.
His Love and Peace always to you.
I looked at the post to me the page before...but just saw one to Lawest...Sorry....I guess we just aren't "connecting" together....About the only time I can talk to you is now (Our Morning 6:00 AM EST)....

Our North has been affected by the Hurricane...I believe 12 have died (so far)....Please keep us all in Prayer....

Love to you...

Jesus never met you, so how do you explain his love for humanity? And thats what church want to say.
I think Jesus had enough with humanity, so he concocted a plan. Many philosophys say he did not die on that cross. Reason being, he was hanging on it one night. Not even that long. While other criminals roted on the wood. Birds eating their flesh.
Jesus was taken downway before he lost to much blood.
You can not blame whole Roman nation or Jewish nation for few elite who disliked Jesus lectures, which were against slavery.
Jesus recovered, being a doctor herbalist, and philosopher, meaning one smart dood, he survived.
But that I'll live for Columbo to figure out.

Good Morning Internet stranger.
I am making this post through Francess's unwanted account to explain something you don't appear to understand at all.
A big difference between you and I is that you pursue "love" through your computer. I pursue love through human interaction. Your proved that when you rejected human interaction last Christmas day for computer love in which you spent your day arguing. You have proved that you don't understand love in reality. If you did then you wouldn't make the dreadful mistakes that you do.
My posts to Epiphany2 and Annie resulted due to looking back at my favourite moments posting on Topix. Those are the two who contributed towards them. I spoke about the family you don't know that you slander and lie about. You chose hatred lies and slander.
I had forgotten about this account. Christine reminded me of it last night, when she said what her favourite moment is of posting on Topix. It is the day that she Francess and I posted together about families posting together on the Internet. She made a mess of it and didn't stick to the script but made it much more fun doing so.
Computer love can not replace the true love of reality.

Now. with regard to the topix moderators. Had you and Red Apples had slandered their loved ones in the same vile ways you have been slandering ours then you would have been thrown out of your "computer love" in seconds. They have made a nonsense of topix very own Terms of Service. They have permitted your abuse to continue.
You certainly come unstuck when it comes to God's rules. You continue to dismiss Christ in his sufferings. The great sacrifice he made of himself. When Christ is truly in your heart sin won't be.
But sin is the choice of the pair of you. When you stated Micah never lied, you revealed you don't know truth from lies. Yet you think you can be a judger of hearts. You are your very own worst enemy.

Good morning Epi.

With the dawning a new day the devastation of the storm is really coming to light. Some of the images and stories being told this morning are truly heart breaking. My heart felt prayers go out to everyone affected by this storm.

We are even feeling the affects from the outer bands of the storm here in Indiana. We had snow late last night and early this morning. Thankfully it didn't stick to the ground. Now it's raining. We've also had sustained winds of 35 m.p.h. with gusts up to 60 m.p.h. But nothing as bad as it was and is on the east coast. I hope everyone will keep those affected by this storm in your prayers.

Have a great day. God bless.

<quoted text>
Do you think true repentance would come with some effort towards amends or no?
Yes, of course. I've understood some time ago that though one repents, it does not mean that they are altogether left unpunished by God ---> Jeremiah 30:11.
Skombolis wrote:
<quoted text>I am not concerned about whether God forgives Gary.
Personally (and I'm sure you might agree)... I sincerely hope that Gary truly repents. God forgave me for my misdeeds, and I'm sure God has forgiven you at some point for your own misdeeds... so I hope He forgives Gary also for his misdeeds.

As far as repentance is concerned, some people are great in instantly expressing what is on their hearts in very great detail, others IMHO, thru whatever their prior circumstance, experiences or upbringing aren't as quick or adept to meet others approval quick enough. But obviously God knows at what point or level when one is truly sorry for the mess they made.

Obviously, I'm one of those who believe that there is a hell and that people can go there without genuine repentance (whether they be called a Christian or not). I don't have any desire for myself or anyone else to go to that horrible place, but according to the scriptures many will go there, it is inevitable. So forgiveness is central.

<quoted text>I am more concerned about what people are doing that no longer can survive, that quit jobs, that pulled kids out of schools, that gave up pensions, etc.
Naturally, my friend. There are civil remedies that can be pursued by those who were perpetrated by the fraud. This of course, is the aftermath of some cults or some misapplied doctrine over the centuries. History merely repeats itself and nothing is new under the sun except that we are all here in another era and system. For the rest of us, all we can do is warn others and hope others take heed from the same dangers. Christians have added responsibilities. Matthew 18:15/Galatians 6:1/Matthew 18:35 among others.
