For those interested, I am posting a link. I found this today, and I have done some research and study, and I discovered that many of the things which are in the article are some of the exact same things I've written in here.
One interesting thing to note is the difference in the gospels preached by Peter and Paul. I do believe that anyone who reads it with an open mind, and in regards to the times, then and now, could possibly learn something.
Now if there are those who discount the entire article without even opening it, or by simply reading just a few lines, then it is their loss, and it would seem to me that they are operating with a closed mind.
I hope you all know that I love all people, no matter who they are, where they've been, what they have or haven't done, or where they come from.
Furthermore, I would like to state that I would rather agree with God than with (in no particular order) Steve, RA, G, Grace, Epi, Larry, Q, Scott, DR, Shrink, my pastor, Charles Stanley, Billy Graham, Matthew McGee, Les Feldick etc, etc, etc.
And so without further adieu, here is the link:

Some interesting things in there. The dispensation stuff at the end is all Millerite (a Camping like nutter) and I have already invetigated that lof path.

Wha I did like is the contrast between the OT verses about blinding Israel and what Jesus said.

"Let thos who have eyes see..." Jessus (In my understanding) sasy that the truth is plain to see to all who want to see it. IMHO human nature is to refuse to face the truth. Some more so than others but few are afraid to know the whole truth.

So one of the things I always keep on mind is "can I face the possibility that I am wrong about God ?"

How many can honestly say "I believe these things but I may be wrong and end up in Hell anyway"

Think of it like a soldier going into battle. They have faith in what the believe in even though they may die that very day defending it.

I had to face the fact that no matter what I believe, I could end up being tortured for eternity no matter what I do or believe. "What if" the "truth" is that there is only Satan and Satan is the real God ? Could I face that ? If not then I will never be able to look for, let alone face, "The Truth".

Be careful when you ask for the truth, it usually is not what you wanted to hear.

Hi Sora :D I must confess that I have only read the first chapter, so far it has been very informative and I must say that I find myself agreeing with it most of the time. I will let you know when I've read it all, I take my time with Tolstoy and was delighted to see my 16yr niece reading War and Peace when I visited 2 days ago. I wish you love and many Blessings.
Peace <3
Bonsoir Lumina. I am always honored and overjoyed to hear from you our meeting I believe was no coincidence. I too take my time with Tolstoy his works are very philosophical in nature. I am of course looking foward to your observations my dear. I too wish you love and may your blessings be so many that it shall seem like a torrent.

Thank you :D I'm glad we met, yes it's always taken me time to decipher Tolstoy, I think his writings as well as the Bible's are among the few books I take my time with and read over and over.

Bonsoir Madame Serah, I also would like to offer my deepest sympathies and sorrow for the passing of your beloved companion. In regards to my relationship with Seraphine I would like to say that we are destined to be together and I too am blessed to have her in my life. I believe that our lives must attest to our faith as Christians. I believe actions speak louder than words. What do you think Madame Serah? May you experience God's mercy and comfort always. We have made numerous trips through the Sahara Madame Serah. We are very well-traveled.
My name is Ahmed.

I am a camel driver in the Sahara desert.

I can attest to Madame Sora's travels in these parts.

Bonsoir Serah, as long as you remember her and keep those precious memories in your heart she shall never die. I believe the strongest emotions we possess from God are love and compassion. I am originally from New Orleans, but I love it here too. When we harden our hearts we become hard toward God I have always believed this. Thank you for responding to my post be blessed.
Cheers ~ and I agree with you about hardening the heart might make us harder towards GOD, even if unintentionally. HE gave us our emotions for a purpose and our laughter for a reason :)

Ahh, yes, indeed our actions attest our Faith, and actions speak louder than words. I am seeking to find humility, and to lose arrogance but must admit it is not as easy as it sounds or as it is to write :)

You must like the heat and solitude if you have made a few trips through the Sahara, and I have not been overseas LOL, but have made many Pet friendly holidays and have been to most of the cities in Australia.

It is nice to see some more friendly 'faces' in our forum, and thank you for your Blessings of comfort and mercy. Let us Pray that 2013 is a year of Peace for all of us who share this one world world together :)

I must be lucky to have had so many reasons for doubt to be dissipated.... but I must admit, I have known many who ask questions, and when they hear the answer, they argue!! Perhaps the truth is another thing that can be personal to each of us, and that not all will have the same comprehension, even if we have shared the same experience!!

Wives are such a wonderful gift from God. God knew exactly what He was doing when He gave Eve to Adam as a help meet for him.....
Based on that, Christians, Muslims and Jews have treated women as property and slaves for the last 3000 years.

Seems you mostly agree with that.

Agreed.

Sadly, most of the 'answers' are "The Bible says so". That is IMHO no answer at all. Much like trying to 'prove' Aslan is real with "The Chronicles of Narnia says so".
