Where does your bible let you know that?
And I guess that you don't see any problem there, do you? You say that there is one preacher, then immediately follow it by telling us that each "mouth piece" leaves something of himself behind. You've described multiple contributors there.
And they do contradict one another. I just addressed this at http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR ..., where Luke contradicts John, and Paul contradicts Jesus.
What an outsider sees is that you believe what you want to believe, and disregard whatever contradicts it. That's fine for you, but you can't sell such thinking to somebody that loves reason.

That was obviously too much truth for you.

Does thinking make your brain hurt? Here; have a D.B. Gumby kerchief for your head, maybe that'll help.

You are welcome. I loved my daddy and miss him so much but I cant imagine losing my mom. I know that we don't always see eye to eye on things but we are all brothers and sisters and should help one another whenever we can. Can we just forgive and agree to disagree on our differences and just spread the Love of God to others? That should be our main goal. Do you agree?:)
To always forgive, and just keep going will never leave one with regrets... making even this possible, if we can believe.

When God's Love is true, sometimes even family are completely out of reach by circumstance, and we have to 'just know' that 'in Spirit' we are always together.

It is human nature to miss our loved ones. Some - as myself - have no parents on this earth, but we learn to live thru the love of other parents. Even becoming the child they did not have.

A dear man I knew had none, but by teen years found he had a Father in heaven. He found purpose in knowing God as his Father then. Many need this relationship to call theirs when it is missing in their life.

But... I always think of the way Jesus asked "Who is my Mother?" when he had no choice but to carry on, in order to carry out the Will of his Father in Heaven. We can all reach this point of denying ourselves for God's sake, if we are prepared to take these steps. From this point on, it is not easy for a parent to fully understand why they feel 'left', any more then Mary,'Jesus mother' did.

To be able to say "Who is my family?" is when we so fully rely on the Father. Strangely, we gather family as we go!

God Bless you GW,
Just sharing always with Brother Lawest, the crew in here, and yourself,

No. They *claimed* to speak for this god of theirs; in reality, they spoke for themselves to build up the memberships in their cults.
Just the way religionists do today.
I guess *this* was too much truth for someone, too.

Well done! There is no good reason to deny any of the people that love one another the way our parents did the same protections of marriage that were/are afforded to them.
I really, really dislike that aspect of Christianity: the scapegoating, marginalizing and dehumanizing of people that it enjoys inflicting irrationally and arbitrarily on certain target groups, especially on gays and atheists. The reason given is that Jesus doesn't approve.
<quoted text>
I agree. It sounds like you are aware of how guilty the church is of just that - or would you disagree?
<quoted text>
You're preaching to the choir, sister
<quoted text>
Thanks, but I don't mind. I understand. Although I think that my message is just and proper, I also realize that it is an affront to believers. I wish that I didn't have to do one to do the other, but I don't see where I have a choice if I want to make my case.
<quoted text>
That depends what you do. If you are an attorney or a psychologist, that's fine. If you are a seamstress or paid assassin, not so much.[Joking!]

BTW, people like you, Grace and Juicylu are much appreciated.
Bonsoir mon ami, as explained earlier I believe in the equality of all people.
People often twist words to their own benefit do you not agree? Context changes from era to era and place to place.
I am fully aware of the sins of the Church, as a Catholic I am fully aware of the destruction that has been done in the name of God. With that being said, my parents often told me to still be a living example and let my life speak for itself. Not all Christians are the same cher, my soulmate and I are very liberal people.
Your message is not an affront to me nor am I offended or insulted, I appreciate your willingness to continue to carry on this dialogue with me. I respect you and I respect your opinions.
In regards to what I do, I wanted to teach Classical piano when I was a child but I love to restore art, it takes patience and a fine attention to detail.
Thank you for your kind words, I am honored.

Interesting. I have fond memories of New Orleans. I understand that it's only outsiders that call it N'awlins, so I won't.
I am a minor fan of jazz as well. You might like this recent post, which probably should have included Bechet :

.. does religion make some people believe they're not worthy ??..

Bonsoir Madame/Monsieur

In regards to my posting, thank you. I believe that religion does make people feel they are unworthy especially those whom are marginalized by society. Religion is different from having a relationship with God.

Now then, in regards to your second question I believe any word or action spoken in cruelty demeans humanity holistically. Consider the influence of cults for example who teach that the leaders are free of human flaws and that the followers will burn in Hell. Do you see my point? If you tell someone, anyone in my opinion you will burn in Hell for not believing as I say, then my response is you are there already. Only God has the right to judge people, I merely make observations.

I don't mean rebuke in a negative light but as a loving way to teach, the way Jesus did it. I am sorry about your sister, I don't know what else to say except that I understand what she did. I grew up rich so I agree, money means nothing to me anymore other than a convenience. My prayers are with you <3
Bonsoir Lumina,
I know what you meant my dearest, thank you for your words they are a comfort to me. I am not going to go into the details into why she did it but I will say that she felt dirty and contaminated and believed we would all be better off without her. My money is not good unless it is used for the benefit of other people, and believe me when I tell you it is just this. In regards to undertanding I take it you have personal experience? Forgive me I am not one to pry. You do not have to answer this if you do not wish to do so, you are important to me Lumina.

Bonsoir Monsieur, thank you. I agree with you. As long as we carry and cherish the beautiful memories of those whom have passed from this world in our hearts they shall never die. I planted a tree in her memory, Monsieur. It rooted shortly after her death. She had a wonderful affinity for flora and she was studying botany.

Yes, I've had personal experiences regarding suicide and there was a time when I never wanted any part of this world, pretty much until I became a Follower of Jesus, but won't discuss them here.
You are very kind.

Bonsoir mon ami, I too would like to thank you as well, mourning the loss of a loved one is different for every person, in regards to my family we were tightly-knit and we supported eachother. Sora's family is the same. We were there for eachother, all of us and this makes the difference especially in a crisis like this.

Bonsoir Lumina,

I am saddened to hear this, my heart bleeds for what you have been through. There is no need to say anymore, all that has needed to be said of this has been. I prefer to think of myself as a compassionate person sensitive to the needs of others.

No.

We do not have any place for them and neither do we have to do with Greek, the language in which no Scripture was given by God. I consider Greek a poor and an unfit language for Scripture.

Yes, a person can be convicted of murder for conduct that is so reckless, thoughtless and inconsiderate, and foreseeably could result in death or serious bodily injury, such that it rises to the level of malice aforethought--that's the standard for murder.
If we can catch their god, maybe we can put it on trial.
OK, thanks, counselor.

Would you consider Jehovah's negligence in the Garden depraved indifference? That is, could the eternal torture of billions of souls that resulted from an omniscient deity leaving innocents unattended with a malicious supervillain be considered depraved indifference in the legal sense? Does this differ from reckless negligence?
