Prayer for the New Year......."2013"
Heavenly Father;
As we prepare to give this year it's proper place in history and venture into the new year, please allow us the opportunity to thank You for all You have done for us. Looking back in time to where we once were to where we are now thanks to the love, spiritual guidance, wisdom and strength which You have given to each and everyone of us. Without You, our lives would be empty, a mere shell yet, with You and all that You are to us our lives are full and complete.
As we venture into a year filled with so many uncertainties God, know that we enter this with the knowledge that no matter what obstacles may cross our path.
We thank You God for all that You have done for us in days gone by, days of the present on that road which You have planned out for us, our family and friends.
Although the Christmas holiday may now be a dim memory, take heart that we will continue to celebrate the birth of our Savior in the many days to come.
In praise of Jesus' most precious and holy name, Amen.
Amen.

No it wasn't.
You have not ansered a single question I asked.
BTW, The Gospels in your Bible were not written until after Paul was dead.
Even if they did, Paul said HIS GOSPEL was the only ture one. Which ONE was it ?
Here is my original question which you failed to answer:
"Please Drew, cite one instance wher Paul cires a single verse from a single Gospel, where Paul mentions a virgin birth, John the Baptist, the crucifiction, the miracles, the betrayal of Judas, the trial by Pilate, the empty tomb, the beatitudes, ad infinitum.
All Paul seems to know is that Jew was raised from the dead, nothing more.
BTW, what Gospel did Paul use ? Mark, Matthew, Luke or John ?
It is really impotant to know that because Paul says only one of them is true and the others are satanic.
Let me know when you can honestly answer those questions with out diversionary apologetics (IE: Holy Spirit Bulkwrap)"
You prove constantly you don't know much about the Bible.
Whatever.

Jesus and Paul said the same thing about what believers should focus on and that is a fact.

You said, "BTW, The Gospels in your Bible were not written until after Paul was dead."

That is a lie. Three of the Gospel accounts were written before Paul completed what he wrote.

It is hard to have a meaningful conversation with someone who finds it hard to be truthful. You put your spin on everything you write. Truly and sadly, I find it hard to afford you any credibility.

<quoted text>
My hope is built on nothing less
than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
no merit of my own I claim,
but wholly trust in Jesus' name.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand--
all other ground is sinking sand.

When weary in this earthly race,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
in every wild and stormy gale
my anchor holds and will not fail.

His vow, His covenant, and blood
are my defence against the flood;
when earthly hopes are swept away
He will uphold me on that day.

When the last trumpet's voice shall sound,
O may I then in Him be found!
clothed in His righteousness alone,
faultless to stand before His throne.
On Christ, the solid rock, I stand--
all other ground is sinking sand.

I would love you to do that.
I never get a response to that challenge other than "Paul didn't have to.".
How on earth could a man who allegedly speaks with Jesus never mention a single in the Gospels ?
I would be asking him to expand on what is in the Gospels and share it with the world.
The only thing Paul relates about Jesus is that He was crucified and resurrected, nothing more.
You are all over the place G; what are you really looking for?

Good morning Drew, hope your day is going well.

You hit the nail on the head when you said to duane quote "It is hard to have a meaningful conversation with someone who finds it hard to be truthful. You put your spin on everything you write. Truly and sadly, I find it hard to afford you any credibility."

What I find truly amazing is that he thinks that people don't see just how dishonest he is. Just look at the new posters that come in here and try to engage him in conversation. In short order they quickly discover just how dishonest he is and call him on it. And per his usual pattern he tries to deny it and attacks anyone that points it out. He's completely blind to the dishonesty he constantly spews out in here that everyone sees but him. That's why the best thing to do is just ignore him and hope he goes to another thread to troll his lies.

I hope you have a very Happy New Year and that 2013 is full of God's blessings for you and yours.

have nice night trifecta
So Jesus tell the thief today the thief will be with Jesus. if that today mean a thousand yrs, you saying Jesus resurrect the thief a thousand yrs later? so then only the thief Jesus raise after a thousand yrs a no one else?

because Jesus was clear to the thief. Jesus say today, that mean one day. so then if one day mean a thousand yrs so the thief is the only person jesus resurrect a thousand yrs later? that no make any sense.

<quoted text>
A lot of this made sense but I cut down to the portion I wanted to address specifically. Although one quick note with the thief when he said "I tell you today you will be with me in paradise" there is no punctuation such as a comma in the original translation so could he not mean that he is telling him that on that day he had been saved but the time he will be with him in paradise is still future tense and referring to the second coming?
Where is the spirit in your opinion when the body sleeps?
A few verses that I think touch on this are the following:
John 5
28“Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice 29and come out—those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned
Revelation 20:4-6
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
1 Corinthians 15
16For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. 17And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. 18Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. 19If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men.
Spirit with God or in hell. spirit can't sleep. No where in bible it say spirit sleep.

I understand what u say with the comma; but that leave same question I ask shrink, so is only the thief jesus resurrect thousand yrs later? cause jesus very specific,[today] that one day. Jesus was never wishy washy with the thief. Jesus clearly tell the thief today.

what happening in revelation have to with body resurrection, not no spirit.

now let me ask you and shrink question. when Jesus died on cross, clearly him spirit never die cause bible say jesus was in other places while his body on cross.

so then if Jesus is the resurrection of believers, if Jesus spirit never die when he was on cross, what make u think your spirit or the thief spirit or any other person spirit will go sleep or die somewhere?

in numbers when high priest aaron died bible say aaron was gathered to his people when he died. so right away aaron was gathered to other people in paradise but he still died. what sense gathered to his people mean if he dead? that mean gathered to his people mean something else. it mean same time aaron died spirit went to God with rest of people in paradise.

and i still no get no answer for what Jesus say yet.

that why so much christian sad unhappy and living evil ways. they no know bible. that why some christian worldly people attract them from faith because they lack knowledge of bible.

Good evening Drew. Hope your Sonday is going well.
I wouldn't count on duane coming up with a quote of Paul saying anything close to what duane claims he did. What's likely to happen is duane avoiding answering to yet another lie he got caught telling. Or he'll dance around and try to change the subject in an attempt to distance himself from being caught in another lie. Or he'll simply go on that attack trying to shift the focus on someone else like he usually does when he gets caught lying.
In his lying state of mind he really thinks that people don't see it when he tells his lies and gets caught doing it. Of course as we all know that's what trolls do.
Have a great evening. God bless.
I know, RA. He has revealed himself to be very transparent, yet he thinks that no one can see right through him. He is only fooling himself. He is a piece of work, I tell you. It seems he thinks he has more knowledge than the cumulative total of all the other posters here.

Do you believe he actually thinks that the gospel given to Paul on the road to Damascus by Jesus was either Matthew, Mark, Luke or John when that idea is totally preposterous?

Well you can certainly see why my posts to him are limited. It is hard to have an intelligent conversation with someone who only sees things their way without even entertaining the thought that they could be wrong and someone else could be right.

Happy New Year to you and I hope this coming year will be a good one for you. We can only take each day as it comes, though. We're not certain of what tomorrow will bring, so I'm focusing on making each day the best it can be, no matter the circumstances, good or bad..

There is nothing inherently wrong with sports, however if one becomes obsessed with sports or any earthly activity for the wrong reasons, then yes.
God's love to you. This is true. Before my pastor said yes to the Lord he was a professional football (soccer) player in Ireland. His coach told him he would be a fool to give it up as he had it made. Thankful he said yes to God and part of his witness is how sports had become a false god to him. Anything before God is wrong and as I've learned what might be a problem for one man could be used for the Lord's glory for the next. Happy new year everyone! Love you miss you.

If you start that strawman shite I'm not talking to you. You didn't say what Paul wrote, read your question again, far as I know, Acts was Luke's second book, the verses I provided shows the kinds of things Paul said about Jesus. Acts contains a lot of information about Paul, his awakening, revelations, actions and words. Paul wrote these books in the Bible: Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, and Philemon.

Hi Luci. I'm sure by now you are finding your efforts at having an intelligent conversation with G are futile, and if you allow it, it will lead to frustration. That seems to be his goal in here, to confound and confuse by offering his spin on things which is so far from the truth it is truly ridiculous.

Happy New Year to you.

Happy New Year to you and yours, Chris.

I know a pastor who was a highly recruited football player out of high school with many college scholarship offers. He also felt God's call to the ministry. But he chose football. Well his college playing days were shortened by numerous injuries and he was never able to live up to what was expected of him. He finally surrendered to God's calling and now he is serving the Lord and has much more peace, joy, and happiness.

Bonsoir Skombolis, I am honored that I am at last able to greet you. I would like to begin by saying thank you for your kind words as Christians we need to keep in mind that God loves all people and Jesus died for all of us and we must honor his sacrifice by living as he lived. This is my opinion, it is easier to smile at a person than to frown at them.
Seraphine has told me quite a bit about you and I can assure you that in regards to what happened before hand it is forgiven and forgotten. Seraphine and I are currently reading War and Peace at the moment by Leo Tolstoy. Are you familiar with Leo Tolstoy or any of his work? He is our favorite author and everytime we visit Russia is it wonderful indeed.
It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui.
What does this quote mean to you? Does it speak to you? I again am honored to have had this conversation and look foward to hearing your thoughts. be well and be blessed :).
Hello Sero

I have seen that quote from Hellen Keller before. I think it speaks for itself pretty much. Doing the right thing and living how we are supposed to live is the most effective way to fight temptation. It is rare the devil or evil tempts us and persuades us when we are at our strongest. It gets us when we are at our weakness.

While I wouldn't go as far as the quote to say the devil would basically die of boredom or disinterest if we spent all our time loving one another as I don't think we are ever 100% out of the reach of temptation and evil will always try to entice man, I do agree with the point which is there would be no evil to fight if we were already doing what we are supposed to. And instead of worrying so much much about what evil is up to we should be flooding the world with love and that would solve the problem more effectively anyway

And just to clarify, while i do believe there is evil in the world and even within the hearts of man and there are forces that seem to tempt us the most when we are weak, I am by no means suggesting that absolves us of responsibility. We have free will. We make our own choices. And God gives us ways around every temptation. So to me there is no "the devil made me do it". But at the same time I do believe in forces of good and evil that exist.

Nice to meet you

Hopefully 2013 will be a Better year for America.....
Hugs to you Steve-o
I had to look-up Kuerig! Google for some reason wasn't as helpful as it normally is. I had to scroll for a bit but saw it is a real good coffee maker company. My bank has one of those machines where you put in an individual size container of grounds and close the lid on it and it makes like 2 individual cups of coffee. I have been meaning to look into getting one of those as I make a pot whenever i am in the mood and then it seems like the rest just goes to waste

I hear ya on 2013. It seems like we have been on the steady decline for about15 years now and throw in all the tragedies of last year and it can take its toll mentally. I hope and pray as well we see a better year coming up
