Come on everyone...LAUGH....Life is GOoD

Overeaters Prayer....

Lord, my soul is ripped with riot

Incited by my wicked diet.

"We are what we eat," said a wise old man,

Lord, if that's true, I'm a garbage can.

To rise on Judgment Day, it's plain,

With my present weight, I'll need a crane.

So grant me strength that I may not fall,

Into the clutches of cholesterol.

May my flesh with carrot-curls be dated,

That my soul may be polyunsaturated

And show me the light that I may bear witness,

To the President's Council on Physical Fitness.

And at oleomargarine I'll never mutter,

For the road to Hell is paved with butter.

And cream is cursed; and cake is awful;

And Satan is hiding in every waffle.

Mephistopheles lurks in pepperoni,

The Devil himself in each slice of bologna.

Beelzebub is a chocolate drop,

And Lucifer is a lollipop.

Give me this day my daily slice,

Cut it thin and toast it twice.

I beg upon my dimpled knees,

Deliver me from jujube's.

And when my days of trial are done,

And my war with malted milk balls won,

Let me stand with Heavenly throng,

In a shining robe -- size 30 long.

I can do it Lord, if you'll show to me,

The virtues of lettuce and celery.

Teach me the evil of mayonnaise,

And of pasta a la Milanese.

And crisp-fried chicken from the South,

Lord, if you love me, shut my mouth!

Amen

the stupidity of your dogma, is evidence enough
Karl, just to save time I think I get it already... you hate Christianity (now perhaps... and I'm stretching it...you love the people?). As you already know, I profess to be a Christian, I profess Christian dogma... sobeit, I understand that you oppose that. If I do not respond to any of your future posts it is simply so you could marinate in your own views.

I never once bathed myself in the filth of faith for reward.

When you answer whether or not when you were a Christian you felt you didn't need to care about the people you hurt because you could ask the sky for forgiveness then perhaps I will answer you directly.
Really? OK. No, I never felt that way.

Now please tell me what that has to do with my claim that Christianity allows one to not apologize if they are so inclined.

Why do you think that I am vested in you? Because I respond to some of your posts?
Skombolis wrote:
But guy after guy has literally followed me to other rooms they respond to dozens of my posts although most of them I ignore for weeks or months at a time, they look for the little things in which they hope to be able to argue a point successfully, such as whether I technically saw someone post their post on Topix when I saw I have seen people make posts saying certain things and just etc, etc. Is it all because you feel you were embarrassed in front of your friends or came out the short end of a debate? Is it just pride?
Do you really want to know why I post to you the way I do? You won't like the answer.

Do you think I pick on you? I let most of your solecisms slide. Here's one to Happy Lesbo from eight posts above this one, at http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR... :

"Your dime-store psychology 101 inferring being self-centered lacks taking basic English grammar in the consideration of its conclusion."

It's not "inferring." It's "implying." Happy Lesbo implied, and you inferred.

And how does an anonymous message board get such a dedicated reaction? I really want to know as obviously it would help me to know. Do I need to start treating other guys with kid gloves? I am used to men who have no problem if they engage in an argument to let merit speak for itself and leave it at that. I don't know any guys in real life that would be this fixated on another guy over something so trivial. So what is it I am not seeing that keeps causing this? Or is it just ego and there are just some very different kind of guys out there than I am used to?
I've already told you what I didn't like. And Happy Lesbo has given you the benefit of her perspective. You don't seem to be interested.

So you believe someone can have their sins forgiven yet that doesn't mean they are saved?
I have always felt the two went hand-in-hand
Do you mind me asking what you would base that on that "The passage is not teaching that everlasting life is based on our forgiving other people."if doing that results in the father forgiving our sins?
How can someone not be saved if the Father forgives their sins?
That's not what I said, nor did I imply it. I don't know how you deduced that from what I posted. In fact I said this, "Only when we are reborn and given a new life through the Holy Spirit by faith in Jesus are our sins forgiven."

<quoted text> Because my good doctor each of us are a battlefield for an on going spiritual war, that is why the Word tells us to put on the whole armor of God so that we may withstand the wiles of the devil and our faith in God is both our sword and our shield. You ask why would someone want to return to a life of sin?.........because as the saying goes.........the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak, and if we don't use the weapons of prayer and faith and keep our focus on Christ and his Word we can lose our focus and gradually slip back into bad habits which can lead back into the things that we use to do that condemned our souls, regular fasting along with prayer and obedience are also effective weapons to keeping us strong in Christ, and also and perhaps most important of all is for a saint to stay up under the Word preached because the Word preached is food to our souls for us to grow on and stay strong just as natural food sustains the human body.

Hey Scott,
I understand what you're relating. This is what I was referencing:
<quoted text>
So,according to the text who would we know 'by their fruit'?
'False prophets'
They would come in 'sheep's clothing'(intent disguised)but are 'ravenous wolves'(predators).
Do they come to reconcile , or divide? To bring comfort, or fear? Show love for the brethren , or contempt? Just my anecdotal take ,and more could be added but one 'gets the picture' I believe.
You take care and have a good night:)
Yesterday as I read about people and their fruits...I kept thinking...

Matthew 7:18
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

I think most would consider the other guy's fruit as the source of the fruit flies that were swarming about.

In your opinion...

Do you think that there should have been another verse or two...

Harvest your fruit before it becomes over ripe and falls to the ground.

For once it has fallen and left unattended becomes as the fruit that fell from the bad tree.

They both will attract the fruit fly.

On as side not...we all know how pesty and how difficult it is to get rid of those annoying little buggers!

Oh well...I started out to be serious but my mind just wouldn't go there.:-)

4 Bible Scripture on headband

#483903 Feb 4, 2013
REVELATION Study Annex 2

Rev 1______/TTTTTTTTTTTTT\______Re v 2

Jesus: "Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, THE DEVIL will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life." Rev 2:10

**********

1. The Devil - Okay, going to make a extremely long story short... concerning Gnosticism... the last thing I remember typing was that they believe that the Christian's God is the "demiurge", evil angel or the devil. That is, the God of the Old Testament.

A. Gnostics believe that the demiurge,(That is, God) was created and they believe that he is the lowest god with a whole bunch of gods and goddesses above him. They believe that place in which those higher gods dwell in is called "The Pleroma". Okay, real quickly... this is how the main story goes but it morphed this way and that over the milleniums:

(1) They believe that God was created by a goddess above Him called the lower-sophia. But before this, Lower Sophia was trying to get a hold of the Highest-ordered God who is known as The Unknown God (heard that before in Acts on Mars Hill?). Well, she couldn't get a hold of Him so out of anger (sometimes legend says curiousity) she created the demiurge but saw that it was a monster that she created (this is gnostic thought btw). So she was supposedly terrified of this monster and flung the demiurge (God) to the darkest and furtherest corners. Then as the gnostic myth goes, she put a barrier between her and the demiurge and that is why Jehovah thinks that He is the only God because He cannot see anything above Him. There's a whole heck of a lot more to this but in gnostic thought, Jesus and the demiurge (God) are supposedly enemies and Jesus came to save mankind FROM God. That only some men have the divine spark and these men who have that are supposedly those gnostics that believe all this. They believe that the Christian and Jewish God is only playing and torturing mankind.

B. Now probaly some "enlightened one" or "knower" (gnostic) will post and say that I don't know what I'm talking about to inject misinformation to keep you from the truth and that sort of thing could happen. But this is part of the main crux of christian gnosticism. Later on it divided into many different gnostic sects who had a slightly different spin on things. Most, except for one strict, ascetic gnostic sect (that I saw) believe that our God is the demiurge or devil. And one of the sects, the Nicolatians is most likely where the OSAS concept originated before it ever got to Calvin over a thousand years later. The Nicolatians, like most of the other gnostics, also believed in dualism... that is, that divine spark in them was good but since the demiurge created everything physical and everything physical was evil... then their bodies were also made of evil and it was okay to commit illicit, evil acts with the body since it was already evil.

So anyways, some key words you ought to research: Bythos, Pleroma, Aeons, Demiurge, Archons, lower-sophia, higher-sophia for those interested. Now some will also say that gnostics don't exist today but they do just like gnostic bibles exist today.

Anyways, gnosticism isn't of God and is more akin to witchcraft and platoism more than Christianity although they use some Christian concepts in their gnostic thought and writings. Some say that even Revelation is gnostic and that Paul himself was a gnostic. Actually, Apostle John and Apostle Paul had a very difficult time with their heresies and that is why they wrote their letters the way they did.

Have a good one.
