Hey John.
I had the ICD (Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator) implanted in my upper left chest just below my collarbone last Monday. It was very minor surgery that went well. Just some lingering minor residual pain at the implant site and where the incision was made for the implant. From all I've heard it can be a life saver if needed for someone with the heart fraction numbers and heart condition I have.
So far so good. In a perfect world it will never be needed but it's there just in case it is. I go in tomorrow to have it checked and to have the tape taken off of the incision site where the dissolvable sutures were used.
I still have many restrictions as to what I can and can't do but nothing to bad. Within a month or so I should be back to being able to do all that I could do before the implant.
Have a great night. God bless.
Hey John,

Great to hear! Knew you were going in for it, don't know if you caught a prior post to that affect and for prayer, but, all seems on the up and up for ya now.

Things well(health wise) here, so, in Him lettuce give thanks(as ol' Ham would say:)

BLL doesn't pervert Scripture,because he doesn't use Scripture to deceive by his own false man made agendas and copied posts from other sources,
this guy can not read, or have Bible during his writed posts

he is deceiver but without of Scriptures,only some time when he need to support his own visions,delusions,or own imaginatory beliefs

God bless you sweety,

please stop taking pills to lose waight,because you look like mama monster or Zombie who never ate past 5 years

you look on this picture like was made in the room where 12 devil ovens have open door and give yellow brimstone light
Oh! That's not nice :'( I coloured my pic so as not to show myself too much but if it upsets you I'll put the real one up. I've had 3 surgeries, gall bladder removed, surgery on my pancreas and liver... Thus the weight loss, plus I'm on medication that makes me nauseous.... Which is why I have loads of time on my hands also, which I seem to be spending studying the Bible, which is kind of funny because it's not the reason I joined topix and nor is it what I expected to be doing here...God's Will perhaps? Lol...
Harrumph!

I'm not commenting on BBL, I don't know him. I agree with some things that everyone posts, just trying to learn.
God Bless you always <3

Context bll, context.

All you did is throw one verse out there than tried to spin and twist it with your usual commentary. And by doing so you completely missed the context of that message with your spin and twist job.

Here try reading the "whole message" in context. Rather than the 1 verse you cherry picked that you tried to spin and twist to fit the false doctrine you're trying to sell in here.

Romans 8:1-17.

8 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.

6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

We've gone over this already. There's no condemnation TO THEM WHICH ARE IN CHRIST. There's no condemnation TO THEM WHO WALK NOT AFTER THE FLESH. There's no condemnation TO THEM WHO WALK AFTER THE SPIRIT. But, there is condemnation to the hypocritical believer and unbeliever. And to the hypocritical believer, I offer the following...
2Corinthians 7:8-11
For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season.
Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.
For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.
I'm sure Paul's audience felt no guilt prior.
Also...
Hebrews 12:14-17
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
Looking diligently lest any man FAIL OF THE GRACE OF GOD; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.
Commentators make more sense sometimes. Most are more educated and It has scripture to back it up. Not all of us are as smart and quick minded as you are..< snicker> I hate to read some of your 5 paragraph novels and by the time I get through reading ALL that you type, My eyes are crossed so bad that I cant see to type so I c/p to make it easier on my sore bloodshot eyes..Please be kind and shortwinded sometimes. If you cant get your message across without rewriting the bible, then just post bible verse and not your opinion..for my eyes sake.. LOL <pretty please>

and during their lifes they write own sentence and achieve end of life reward
,and during this time everyone will realize what sentence they received-death inhalation?
or resurection
or enter gates of death and step up on the new long road to Gods realm -narrow road behind death gate, road without of darkness,bright road only for members of Christ bride following to His wedding table to receive His Love and His first eternal shalom and smile of sweet infinte lips

So very true!!!

I know I sure don't deserve His grace but I'm eternally thankful and grateful for it. And believe me I've seen it in action so many times in my life. Particularly over the past 7 months. And for that I praise Him and give Him all the glory.

Brag on God indeed my Brother in Christ. God bless you Drew.

<quoted text>
Well I used to believe John received the Revelation after the Temple and Jerusalem were destroyed and ravaged in 70 AD, and I'm still studying, but now I am leaning toward it being written before 70 AD. One of the main evidences for this is that the destruction is not mentioned or alluded to in Revelation.
As far as where I've been, I officiate high school, middle school and rec league basketball, and the season is going strong right now. So with two varsity (girls and boys) dates per week, one to three middle school and JV games per week plus rec league on Saturdays, I'm pretty busy, so my time on here is limited. I've tried to read along, but I just haven't had time to post.
Thanks for asking, and it's good to be missed.
Interesting study Drew. I will have to look in to that too. My granddaughter plays basket ball. She loves it. I am always interested in studying and learning new things from the bible. I have to go back to work tomorrow after a 10 day vacation plus finish one more discussion thread in my college comp class tomorrow, so I will be busy also. Take care Drew

<quoted text>I'm sure what he said is true in some cases. But to make the broad sweeping statement that quote: "Christians particularly American Christians love the idea of Jesus as Saviour but we generally do not accept him as Lord of our lives and allowing Him to work in us" is rather judgemental blanket statement by the person that said it, wouldn't you say?

Is it your parish priests place to make such a sweeping judgement? Perhaps he needs to look at his own walk and ask himself whether or not he's allowing Jesus to work in his live. Because standing behind the pulpit throwing out judgements like that on people he doesn't even know sure isn't allowing Jesus to work in his life. Because it's clearly not his place to judge "Christians and/or American Christians" that he doesn't even know.
I read it differently, I can't speak for Seraphine, only myself; it's sometimes easy to slip into thinking that topix is a representation of Christianity and non Christianity in America, especially for me because I've never been exposed to it before. That's how I read Seraphine's post, I'm sure she'll let me know if I'm wrong....

YIKES!
I think you would like to see everyone at each other's throats.
So you continue to throw out accusations and such as the above-
to keep a pulpit of one here--yours!
And ofcourse when it suits you- everyone who agrees w you..
is ok in your judgement.

Just like how you throw out the -cindy card- you want to create doubt
in any poster that disagrees with your ideals..

I believe you to be laughable and I always have.

So you don't want to answer this ? Did you post this or was it your other nature?
Where have I seen that question before, about not answering questions and what-not? And what do you mean by "other nature?" Are we going to resort to mockery now?

Yes, I wrote that. And I stand by it.

We can't lose salvation because "God" takes it from us. Salvation will always be granted the repentant and faithful. But, we can reject salvation, and this is done through willful negligence, unfaithfulness, and disobedience. In that, we've no reason to believe we're still going to be saved.

If one person once comes to "God," then returns to willful sin and dies in this state, does this affect everyone's salvation? If not, then salvation remains, like I said, but the one that returned to unrighteousness will not be saved.

Hey John.

With as fast as this thread moves sometimes I may have missed your post. But I knew I was in the prayers of many believers in here. And believe me I'm thankful and grateful for that. I'm glad your health is doing well. I'll continue to keep you in my prayers.

Thanks for the chuckle about Ham. I'm so thankful and grateful he lettuce be a part of his life. He was a man so full of love and great wisdom who's humbleness and meekness wouldn't allow him to see it in himself. I miss him dearly.

God bless.

Sorry
I rebuked White Eagle Huk WEK Fu Fue
because he is seating on the highest branch of tree wisdom and observe all skies activities,also with one eye and wing observe bottom down of this Tree Wisdom(Chokma) and sometimes he doesn't see clear and bright,because fallen leaves of this tree Wisdom,cover reality of human lifes of the first stage to climb one step up,
mostly little earthly teachers-succesion of earthly errors doesn;t allow them to jump up,
and they fall down causing injuries of their natural bodies,
in this case you are also injured by this horible miserable life

I WISH YOU GOOD HEALTH,AND STEP BY STEP CONSUME GODS BODY-HIS WORD

AND DRINK HIS BLOOD-HIS LAW FLOWS THROUGH VAINS OF 14400 BODY OF CHRIST AND WORD BIBLE GIVEN TO DRINK FOR EARTHLY BELIEVER IN HIM

God bless you alwaays,
always with prayer trye to strat read Bible,always after prayer for help of Holy Spirit

most adult spiritualy mature children of God,doesn't argue about doctrines of Sound truth from Bible,

but they ar ejoyful,love jokes, not seriousenss of this world from smallest sin to most mad sins,they are only sins past in time,
and each one of us is able to put to the death all sins,if God gave Gift of free His underserved Kindness and Holy Spirit who purify only His children
also predestined children of God Eph 1;3-12 are saved and always saved,happy,endure trials and receive during heavy chastisment very quick help of their best Father and The Best Friend Jesus Christ

I don't strive with Jesus teachings,
I am part of His holy team(but deserve not to be anyone,but I know I am)

I just post passages,and what is inside of my mind,
mostly doesn't reveal my truiness of my heart, there is not need to fake smiles,and fake supports someone who Lie without of end.

exist also Grace for great crowd those who will be resurected and live in new heaven and new earth
THIS GRACE IS TO BE SAVE BUT NOT ALWAYS SAVE AND ENJOY THEIR SPIRIT AND EARTHLY LIFE TO AN END IN THE EEARTHLY SINS, JUST THEY CAN LOOSE GRACE BECAUSE OF SATAN WHO KILLED THEM BY HIS EARTHLY WEAPONRY SPREADED AROUND THIS EARTH.

my body is in sin,but I control fully this sin, this type of sin like apostle Paul is sin not to the death
but I received very horible chastisement and always forgivenes for my bad bodly reduced transgression

there exist not other sins in the body and soul in me according to 2 Cor 7;1 and Rev 14;5.1 Peter 3;22 Eph 5;27

God bless you sweety
Thank you <3
God Bless you too Doc, I want to know the Bible better but I don't like debating what it says, partly because I believe in It being God's Word and partly because I'm trying to understand all of it myself. I just know that I love God with all my heart, mind and soul because of what I felt and witnessed 3 and a half years ago and still do to this day, I'll try my best to follow, obey and please Him. I truly admire you for speaking your mind.

Nope.
They are at the heart of Paul's message.
When did Jesus say "After I die, go to Paul." ?

Actually according to the Bible Jesus said to go to James.

Then Paul's Roman friends had James murdered.

" and brought before them the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James, and some others,[or, some of his companions]; and when he had formed an accusation against them as breakers of the law, he delivered them to be stoned." Josephus
