Thanks.
Can you even imagine carrying that burden? Knowing that you are feeling
something
so very different from "mainstream"- and there is a whole group of your fellow "humans"
out to discredit and abuse you because of how you
feel deep inside?
No. Not to the degree I have witnessed. I can relate to it because I have had many friends in my lifetime who were not hetero. Seen it for 50 years now, and watched them destroy many individuals who were really good folks. It's like the "quiet" inquisition. They can't be charged for their crimes, but they are surely guilty as hell!

Thanks for sharing that about DoC and his family..
You are sweet, Epi..
There's a couple steps to the game, after you peg your points against your opponent, you count your hand-- "runs", pairs,
3 of a kind
and multiples of 15..and there is always a cut card, you want that
card to work to your counting hands advantage..
That's why, like 6696- I guess a 6 or 9 cut card would be best.
--more multiples of 15 mean more points on board!
First one around the cribbage board wins.
We play mostly Rummy 500 now a days..
Yes, still have the three "fellas"..

Ancient Hot Spring.

Hot mineral springs valued for their supposed healing properities.The Jewish historian Josephus mentions hot spring resorts at Tiberias in Galilee and at Callirhoe near the Dead Sea during the bibical period.A large Roman bath complex dating the third century A.D. was excavted in the 1980's near the sea of Galilee it contained more than a dozen pools.These were fed by hot spring that still exist today.

Ancient well discovered.

The Hebrew patriarchs Abraham and Jacob dug numerous wells to provide water for their flocks.A remarkable well was excavated in the 1980's at Arad in the Negev Desert of Southern Israel.It is more then 10 feet wide and is neatly lined by stones to a depth of 68 feet at the water level.Water was carried from the well to a channel cut into rock that took water within the city walls.

The only persoon,or 'thing',stopping you from REPENTING and turning to the Lord Jesus Christ,RIGHT NOW,is Y-O-U!!! Not 'pre-destination',not your friends,not your family,not society,not even SATAN the DEVIL can stop you from getting SAVED,RIGHT NOW...'IF'....that's what....you...truly wanted to do. Just keepin' it REAL.
While God....FOREKNEW who would accept His Son...and who wouldn't,FOREKNOWLEDGE is NOT the same as PRE-DESTINED,or PRE-JUDGED....Once a person hears the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ,they reach the 'spiritual crossroad' of eternal destiny. And even though Satan the devil is far more evil and clever and influential and wicked than we could ever fully REALIZE,his infulence is no match for a REPENTANT soul exercising the POWER OF CHOICE to reject him,and to turn to the Risen Saviour who has an eternal home,with family and friends and ALL of the Lord's people from throughout the ages,awaiting them. An eternal home where sadness and crying and sickness and pain and hate and mistrust and confusion and greed and evil and wickedness will NEVER trespass upon!!! This is Doctor R-E-A-L-I-T-Y of the United States of America,just keepin' it REAL. Good Night all:

This part deserves repeating...
"for who would ever --> choose <-- to be hated and ridiculed and judged by bigots in the name of God??"
I no longer try to reason with anyone...I find letting their actions do the talking far more beneficial. I find that the hatred, ridicule, judging that some do speaks louder and changes more minds than any words that I might utter.
I have learned from those that have changed their minds on homosexuality that they have done so because they have seen their own behavior in others. They didn't like what they saw.
And what bothers me so very much is that-
the religious bigots, really think that any child is going to
choose this lifestyle?? More often than not- they fake and
pretend they aren't who they really are!
These kids pretend because of the hate and ridicule and constant judgements
of a group of fanatics who claim to speak for God...
Honestly-I am tired of reading it..but, not tired of speaking
against it..
Can see where you'd be fed up w trying, Annie. And rightfully so..

sin has to be despised,
and gays community are full of sin,
they are not better or worse from all siners
WE HAVE TO HATE SIN CAUSING DEATH,
not single homosexualls or lesbians,they are many of them very smart and very good people-but by their own man made morality
Each who reject Gods Order and Gods Moral law,
deserve only one punishment
death
wages for sin is death.Rom 6;23
and homosexaul community are not going to excape from their own sins,
like all of those who are described in Gal 5;17-21
I only wonder why
this community doesn't seat on their own topic disscusins,only ramble with
PRETENCES AROUND CHRISTIAN TOPICS,AND CRY LIKE CLOWNS AND COMPLETE LOOSERS
Thanks for your honesty.

I agree, it was very well written. So was "The Te Of Piglet" for that matter.
So let's hear the good story! Does it involve being loved by Jesus?
:)
Nope. No Jesus.

First an explanation.
The Taoist Religion and the Taoist Philosophical School have been at odds for over 2000 years. The works of Lai Tzu, Chuang Txu and other philosophers (circa 500 BC) alleged to have written the Tao Te Ching and other texts talked about "Tao" much as Spinoza talked about "God". Many perverted this into a deity, added alchemy and twisted the simple philosophical words into a magic system.
One example:

Chuang Tzu said "It is easy to fly like a bird, let go of everything weighing you down." What he meant of cours is that our jobs, families and positions keep is from being free to go anywhere we want.
The Taoist religion twisted this into a belief that there were magical ways for man to literally fly.... and if you really believed (and payed the preisthood through the nose) they could teach you how to do it, then when it (obviously)they would tell you you didn;t have enough faith...and if you helped pay for the new temple it would prove your faith (or something similar).

The Taoist philosophers saw the relgion is a scam and made a point of mocking the religion. The religion in turn becme very violent against the philosophers as "evil heretics and demons".

Sound familiar ? <frowny face>

Will continue in a moment. Need to stretch my wings for a bit.

I'm not aware that any god claimed to write the bible. I wonder where you got that?
It aint necessarily so wrote:
Common ground at last.
I'm glad you're relieved. Don't get too used to it.
It aint necessarily so wrote:

I'm not aware of any god claiming to write the bible. You should read more. This is not kindergarten.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
Actually, I am one. I have rejected all god claims, and you can't reject more than all of them.
You sound confused.

Take 2

You sound confused.

Try again.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
Whatever logic may be, it's not that.
How long does it take you to believe the stuff you write. Having a hard time?
It aint necessarily so wrote:
I think it does.
No surprise there either.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
Au contraire.
Not at all. You should read more you know. After all, this really isn't kindergarten.

Are ya not a part of all there is? Do you not interact with nature? Do you not breathe? Does your person maintain 98.6 temp? How many folks do ya suppose read what you write/an don't ya see it has an effect in ther state in several and sundry ways?
Every single moment of yer existence requires intermingl'n energy with the ALL/IAM, an can affect it in a multitude of dimensions(many of which you can never know) which may reverberate to the very ends of the universe.
No my dear, you are as important as the pope or any other entity that has ever existed. You have always been, you are, and you always will be. You only realize that which your eyes perceive, and that is a minute speck in the ALL/IAM. You are made of pure energy(all matter is-fact) which can not be destroyed. It can only change form and exchange places and dimension.
Woo Wooo there captain.Time to take whispers off a toad stool there.What you know about changing forms,What you know about exchanging places and What you know about dimensions.I not shared anything here on the threads that is not already written and recorded.

Baths for foreigners.

An inscription found in a synagogue in Jerusalem dating before A.D.70 mentions bathing establishment for those from abroad.This may refer to the Pool of Siloam (John 9:7) near which the synagogue was found.
