Thing is the more I read what you say, the more I like it. I no know if it have anything to do with the verse at hand, but that ok, good talk.
No, that I got real easy. LOL Maybe because God wanted me to know it at a certain point in my life. It means to keep your prayer life up, never ceasing and living a good life as you possibly can. That is the oil in your lamps. The other five virgins in the Bible wanted the other five virgins to share some of theirs but it could not be done. So, they were left behind, because they chose not to do as the other five virgins. Have you ever heard of this little light of mine? The author was inspired by that scripture. At least that is what I was always told. Glad you enjoyed our talk. I did too.:)

watch your good stand for this country,and back up sincerely all Vets-not only by mouth,but daily practical life,

because native young generation of americans failed and today are menace of this Noble Society
Well, It is hard to believe you, since my grandfather came from France when he was 7 years old. My other grandfather came from England about the same time, but he was only a couple of years old. My grandmother was Swedish, and My other grandmother was Irish. That was over a hundred years ago. Are you sure you want to go where you are going with me? I really hate to make you a liar. But, it is either me or you dude, and I am not taking the fall for your mean old butt. Funny, I have a Egyptian man in my church who has been here in this country for 20 years and is a Christian. His English is very fluent, not as yours. He writes his words in English pretty good. Why are you so hell bent on shoes? Living in America for that long, you would be knowing the rapp songs by now.LOL You would know the English dialogue by now, and even the slangs of most Americans. It is hard for me to believe that you have a loving wife, when you speak so evil of the women. I have a post that I will be posting soon, stating that you hate America and the women are all prostitutes and most of the world is even evil. So, since you are calling me a liar, I would like to make things right with you. So....maybe do you think someone was impersonating you?

HINT: The lamps represent the righteousness we've learned, applied, and exemplified. The oil represents the anointing that comes by learning the expectations of the most High. The less we learn, the less light we can shine. The "foolish virgins" became lackadaisical and, at one point in time or another, their "first love" began to wax cold. Their oil slowly became none. The "wise virgins," on the other hand, remained steadfast while increasing their knowledge and becoming the epitome of love. And when the bridegroom came...well, you know the rest.

Just ignore the icons! Not sure if I contributed to the mixed signals but let me just say I am passionate about anything to do with equal rights. However you have a loved one in the military and because you arent the only one who feels how u do I felt it would be more appropriate just to post to the room.People can take something or nothing from my posts but I feel obligated to make them. Anyway i just go by what people post to me and figure if icons are the extent they can express themselves then they are probably doing everyone a favor by not posting!(T) PEACE

The bizarre thing is I am beginning to suspect doc isnt racist at all. I think it is just done intentionally for shock value. People could simply just post to someone and talk to them normally.There doesnt have to be a pretext let alone a negative one. Then again who knows? I am kind of at the point in my life where if I cant distinguish I kind of dont have the energy to look any deeper. Seems to me there should be no reason to even wonder. Anyway (T) PEACE

We can always find something to hate in others...especially those that are different than ourselves...does that mean however that we should??about someone else...if for no other reason than what we share in common. Just like here in this small world of Topix...we share so much more in common than we have in differences.
I might not believe as some do here...but we want most of the same things....yet we let what differences we have drive wedges between us and build fences without gates that keep us apart.
There are a lot of subjects important to me that I can pretty much guarantee I will see you weigh in on and because we share if not the same perspective then a close one and those are humanitarian issues in all sorts of area. I have come to count on that and really enjoy that. As for G and I being tied you know he and I are much too competitive to stay tied! LOL..(T) Peace

go tomorrow to your church and beg priest to forgive you your deadly immoral sins,and filthy immoral rants on the internet
UNDERSTOOD YOU POOR CHURCHID SERVING DEVIL-pseud christ 2 Cor 11.13-15.2 Thess 2.3-12
I am old enough to rebuke your immoral remarks and wickedness flows from your rotten dead heart-whorever who you are ;"american women" or american man with big balloon belly from cheap hamburgers and legs like 2 broom stick,+ huge old wrinkle head without of hairs,same those american women are looking like their chisen american man?
LOOK AT YOURSELVES, YOU ARE REALLY JOKE AND SHAME OF HUMAN KIND
Dr. Shrink you told me:
You are a nice old man, disabled who loves America and all Americans and Vets....okay

"Personally I pee on American Women" really? They are all twisted? Really? Your own words sir, not mine. Really women were evil from the beginning.

I am stepping out here, but In the Bible, Adam was made from Adams rib, to be his help mate. His responsibility was to protect her and keep her from harm. Wow, when you think of it that way, Adam wasn't doing his job, now was he. Adam let God down, that is why he got on to him first. He was responsible for Eve, and he failed her and God. So.... Eve was not evil, she was fooled by satan who lied to her. Are you lying Dr, Shrink. Time to come clean, I got so many more of your post lined up that you are not a sweet old man. You need to get on your knees and ask God to forgive you for speaking ill of all American women, and yes you must be horrible to your wife, if your personality switches on and off as easily as you do. Reread your posts, you are so mean to most people you encounter, then the next you act so sweet and innocent. I can not believe anyone who has been here over thirty five years and is lacking on his English language like you are. And tell me, why would you even speak about other countries, and say you were an investigator in another country? Would you like for me to find that one too. I am believing that you are an habitual liar, and you lie so much, you have no idea what you even say. You insult almost everyone you speak too. The whole world is not evil. I pray you figure out not to speak evil and curse people to their doom. Jesus Christ never did that. You got to quit fighting and arguing with people Jesus is not about that. If you did live in America for over thirty years.....you would know how we were. My grandfather and great grandfather could not speak English, but they learned. They also learned to read and write as with all his brothers and sisters. As a child they even spoke some french. But when I got older, in my teens, they were fluent and knew the ways of American life, all of them did...

I'm not a preacher in the technical sense of the word, but I believe we're all preachers in our own right. I don't believe any titles such as "preacher," "minister," "priest," or what-have-you, should be confined only to those that attend these seminaries and universities. A person can learn just as much outside these universities, if not more, if they apply themselves. And technically speaking, but we all do our share of preaching, ministering, and... uh... um... "priesting" doesn't sound right. Um... oh, you know what I mean.

And as far as reputation is concerned... Topix is an extension of our worlds. And reputations, here, can be just as important as it is to the people we personally encounter. Take, for instance, Dr Shrink. Now, I know some posters that are far more vulgar than Dr Shrink. And nothing they say is taken seriously. Only those of like-mind ever praise them. And even if they, from this moment on, began to preach the bible, it would take a while before anyone decided to listen. So, with that being said, I don't lose sleep over what people think of me here, but I don't want to be a pariah, either.

Hi Jw,

My opinion, love yourself = Jesus love you.

Birth is a gift from god. You must respect and love yourself that is the way to make god love you.

LOL..i know it is insane! I have had posts like a minute apart and the first one has a negative icon already! And the crazier part is it can be any time from 5am to 3am the next day! It is like whatever fruitloop does it is glued to the monitor 22 hrs a day. And I never see them icon-free for like more than 15 minutes. I cant see the icons any more as I block it but can see the number 1 on every post. Funny stuff!

<quoted text>I've been reading the posts I've missed since yesterday. And although I don't necessarily agree with you on your views regarding the existence of "God", I do enjoy reading your posts. I finally go to this post, quoted above, when a thought flashed in my mind like a strike of lightning...
"I'm sure atheists have always existed, right along side theists. But, Christendom has done wonders conceiving and birthing more atheists. Christendom has done wonders strengthening their arguments."
And that saddens me. Believers have failed you. Speaking for myself and really hoping that I don't sound condescending, I'm sorry. I truly wish our history wasn't as it is.
The ride's not over, though...
Thank you for those kind words, but none of you have failed me. I didn't leave the church because of anything that anybody had done. I simply couldn't suspend disbelief any longer.

I gave Christianity a sincere shot for many years. Initially, I was able to ignore my doubts and questions, thinking that with time they would become settled and answered. That just never happened. I used to say that it was like wearing a new pair of shoes - it doesn't matter that they don't feel quite right or fit perfectly on the first day wearing them - with time, they become more comfortable.

But these shoes just never fit, so I took them off.

I realize that Christians never blame their god for anything, and I don't expect you to do so either. And as you know, I don't believe that such a god exists.

But if it did, that's who didn't come through. I was ready to become a part of the body. But that bus never came.

Far from blaming the god, I realized that it simply wasn't there. If a god was presiding over our world and was aware of my thinking and my need for it to reach back at that time, it let me walk out, and has never called me back. That has nothing to do with you or any other Christian.

But thanks again for your interest. And if you meant that you personally have failed me, no, you haven't. I have no recollection of any post from you that I objected to.

I stopped going to church for the same reasons. However for me it hasnt led to atheism, but to general skepticism and disbelief in religious claims in general. Which you could say is close to the same thing. I always knew the evidence for religious claims was shaky. But a point came where I realised that claims made were untenable and false. Therefore I couldnt go through with the charade of Christian rites and prayers when being a disbeliever.
