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.
Yes. This is the power of our Lord Jesus! God's love bro. Sorry about your team but its still a great thing how far they went!

<quoted text>Yes David was repentant... he did all he could do for the child to survive
I guess I just don't see that as repentance.I see it as remorse that his actions were going to bring about bad consequences for someone he loved. Once he could no longer save the child he stopped fasting.

I am not saying I know he would not have been sorry afterwards for a fact if the child was never at risk but he had no remorse up until the point that he knew there would be consequences. Is fear of punishment or or acts of contrition to avoid punishment the same as being truly repentant?

Had his repentance started before the child was at risk we would know for sure I guess.

But I understood your point. It was is unknowingly hurting someone To borrow your analogy that would be like a man who suspects he has AIDS but intentionally never goes to the doctor nor warns his partners this might be the case. Instead he tells them he has a clean bill of health all the while knowing he may not. Then claims afterwards because he didn't know for sure he is not at fault. Had he told his victims "hey I am not selling everything I have because there is a chance I am wrong" and they did it anyway, then this is a different discussion. Same with if he allowed doubts from others in the group instead of threatening them all while keeping his own doubts hidden.
(T) Peace
That is why when one plays it's like playing russian roulette... everytime a person has sex with an unknown "or sometimes known" partner who say they are AIDS-free, then they are taking a slight to great risk. It's best to abstain or protect themselves. So the victims bear some responsibility also in protecting themselves.

This has been a Health Note for today.

Remorse, Regret, contrition, restoration, sometimes grief and the like are all part of repentance. I believe if David thought that if he wasn't going to see the child again then it would be a different scenario... but he clearly believes and tells his servants that he will see the child again.

I tell you what... I was afraid of butt-whippins from my mother... but it kept me in line... and if it took an act of contrition to avoid a butt-whippin... I would do that too but it didn't always work out as I had hoped.

Finally brothers we instructed you know how to live in order to please God,as in fact you are living.Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more.For you know what instrutions we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.
It is God's will that you should be sanctified that you should avoid sexual immorality,that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable not in passion lust like the heathen who do not know God and that in this matter no one should wrong his brother or take advantage of him.The Lord will punish men for all such sin as we have already told you and warned you.
For God did not call us to be impure bit to live a holy life.Therefore he who rejects this instruction does not reject man but God who give you his Holy Spirit.
Now about brotherly love we do not need to write to you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other.And in fact you do love all the brothers throughout Macedonia yet we urge you brothers to do more and more.
Make it your ambition to lead a quite life to mind your own business and to work with your hands just as we told you.so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so thay you will not be dependent on any body.

Living to please God.

Well yeah I agree it should be common sense to look at the circumstances and understand a person may have an incentive to lie. But the systematic brainwashing broke down these natural defenses and fear of being an outcast did the rest.

Does that reduce any of the responsibility from the guilty party though? But I know what you are saying it is why is was so frustrating trying to deal with people where it seemed like common sense was having no affect. For whatever reasons, although I suspect I know most of them, there was no getting through to them. But I think those people need to engage in some serious introspection to understand why they were so susceptible to this and why the fear of losing the respect of the group mattered so much to them.

But again, just depends on the circumstances. Is a person who goes to club looking to get laid by strangers more responsible for being careless than say a widow who lost her husband that is lonely and was taken in by a professional con-man who got close to her to steal her money and he targeted her specifically because he knew she was vulnerable?

Some might say yes I say no. She still should have smarter but HC and his people targeted a demographic of people they knew they had a better chance of flipping. The poor, the desperate, the disenfranchised, those angry with the church, third-world countries, etc.

Yessssss.... or if you have cats they will mark their territory inside your house.

But lastly, Gary being a leader will be held more accountable for his actions but others should have taken precautions also....

I agree. In a twist of fate for those that come out the other side it probably will end up being beneficial that part of what was being taught was easily disproved simply by the calendar. Otherwise I have no doubt most would have remained under the thrall of HC. For those people they can retrace their steps and find where they went off course and why. I think they will probably need to start over and build an entire new foundation. I mourn those who will not get that chance and those that would have stayed the path if not misled. Yes their was things wrong to be susceptible to being misled but with the right influences they may have gotten much stronger. Hard to know how things might have played out.Good talk brother.(T) PEACE

What a surprise. Look who is trying to slither back in under the radar. Guess violating TOS or being where they are not wanted is no deterent compared to the charade of using Jesus Christ to troll. Get your stop-watches ready. Reversion to true form ought to be any second now.

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.
Prime Time with God
Amen, good prayer and one that hits home with myself very much.
