Today's Prayer
Dear God, Thank you for a new day. I know that everything I am and everything I have is a result of what you have allowed in my life. Sometimes life is very hard; other times it is full of happiness. I know you are always there and your blessing is available...if only I will listen and obey. Please help me to recognize the gifts you send and the doors you open each and every day. Give me wisdom to see and do your will. Thank you for the spiritual gifts you have given, also. I pray that you will use those gifts to work in and through me to minister to the world and draw people to you. In Jesus' name I pray and give you praise. Amen.
Prime Time with GOd
Amen.

IANS...I will call you Ian.....
The "Church" didn't tell me anything. In my thinking the "church" is a group of Christ followers trying to live their life to the best to their ability. The BIBLE or Gods Word states how he feels (and what he "hates"....I don't follow man (church) I follow God. Even if the church is irradicated I will still Follow God and his ways.
PS....I've never been a real good Follower
Very good post Epi.

Pornia, fornication, is all sexual acts except sex between husband and wife, in the missionary positon, only to produce children and not to be enjoyed.

Why singling out homosexuals ?
I've been talking about all kinds of fornications here lately. I'm just responding to others' posts who single out that particuala topic and gay marriage.
G_O_D wrote:
<quoted text>
Far more heterosexual Christian fornicators out there just waiting to be treated like homosexuals.
Gays are definitely a minute minority but they sure are taking up a lot of air time. But the majority is hetero and that is why you have more fornicators and everyone who claim Christianity isn't a Christian... mostly their Christian only by tradition of the family. Yet they are still lumped in with all other Christians.

Ban divorce, execute all fornicators (see above) and impose a death sentence for masturbators.
That'll fix the world.

Your two faced and multiple forked tongue hypocrisy knows no bounds Ms. Walker. You only side with this clown Mr. 42 because he's against me but you forget one thing, his utter disdain for your religion, and when I start ignoring him and his lack of proper ambition, he will get bored and turn on you. I see it too often in Topix. It's just a matter of time before you stand up for your religion and say something that offends him, and then he will verbally cleave you like a plump dog in a Chinese meat mart.

<quoted text>There is an irony in your post Annie that you may not have picked up on, you used the term 'under age', many feel that it is just as immoral to mary someone beneath the age of 17 or 18 as it is to condone same sex marriage, depending on the circumstances marrying a teenager is not so immoral as two people of the same sex marrying one another (but yes.......there is a such thing as too young).
Under age rules have been set by the individual states. I might not agree with those ages but it is not up to me to set them. If the legal age to marry is 16 (which I feel personally is too young) then that person has the right to marry.

My personal feelings on what is too young are irrelevant...my own mother married at 16. My parents marriage lasted for almost 40 years until her death...for my dad that marriage lasted for another 15 years until his death.

I also believe that 16 years of age is too young to be driving a car. Because of that both of my children were 18 before I would sign for their license. Other people felt differently...I do not condemn them for that even though I disagree with it...they were within their legal rights.

You have the right to marry who you love? Do gays have that right?

You used the word immoral...whose morals are you basing that on?

<quoted text>Morning Mike... some express hope in terms of doubt... "I hope so" "I hope it will" etc... but the hope spoken of earlier from the scriptures I provided you is a hope that expresses "expectation".
For example, Kind of like some who believe Obama is their Saviour, of sorts. Initially they had "expected" the Prez to do much more than he did in the first term. When they hoped in him... they didn't express doubt... they expected their promises to be fulfilled.
In the same way, that "expectation" type of hope is the kind of hope that faithful Christians have towards God. It is not doubt, it is expectation and we know that our hope (expectations) will be fulfilled. For Believers, that which Who we call The Comforter helps us to develop that expectation kind of hope.
Have a good one... Quin
Thanks Quin

Who you trying to kidd?

For non-believers, what helps them develope hope?

Took a moment to get that.
the word "will" place it as a possible future event based on an "if".
Yeah, not much of an apology in that wording.
This is crazy and what is even crazier is me responding to this...however.

After I posted that...

JL's next post said...

I am too tired to argue about this.(based on memory because I am not going back to find it)

My response to that was...(again based on memory)

Why would we argue about it...I apologized if I misunderstood.

Obviously from my response I felt as if I had apologized and could not see the reasoning behind the need to argue. I chose however to let it go.

So...here goes...

JL...I am sorry if I did not make my apology clear due to the word "will".

I am done with this...if this is not good enough nor does it meet other people's qualifications for an apology...it is not my problem...it is theirs.

<quoted text>I've never claimed to be any sort of scholar in any subject! Why would you lie like that about me? It's one thing if you said that I try to act as if I as a scholar, but saying that I've claimed, at any time, to be a scholar is an outright lie. And you know it.
You're acting like a juvenile, bitter person now, Grace Walker. First, you responded to a person that I was having a discussion with and finished your post by just having to add that I wouldn't believe it, and now this. I know we didn't agree on your "once saved, always saved" doctrine, but I, at least, still respected you. But, now? I guess you are free to behave any which way you want when you believe your salvation is guaranteed. Now, I know.
I totally agree with you BLL. What's her deal?
I know she hates being wrong but then to start lying, wow...
amazing.

Shalom!

charis to you cs..Maybe if you would receive charitoo then you wouldnt care if we said GRACE..
Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
Chorus:
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy reigns
Unending love, Amazing grace
The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine

There is no proof that prayer works any differently than positive thinking. I don't recall anyone, including myself or Catcher, say that prayer doesn't have an effect.
<quoted text>
Telling someone you're thinking of them can have a positive effect on that person. Figuring that out isn't difficult.
Are you going to hijack the power of positive thinking for your deity now?
<quoted text>
Possibly. The relationship between two people and their beliefs will play a role in how communication between them affects the degree of psychological benefit to their health.
<quoted text>
Isn't it obvious, that prayer works as well as positive thinking, because that is what it is?
Prayer to all different gods seems to work the same way, and to the same degree.
Hmm....interesting.
Very interesting indeed.

Cyber Bullying is wrong....

I love how she posted the names of those that had cruel things to say.

Her best point though...is that each person that is bullied...each person that someone degrades...condemns...is someone's child.

When my son came out to me...my biggest fear...was not only that someone in their bigotry would literally harm him...but the words that would be used to describe him. For a mother or a father...to hear those things said or in the case of a medium as Topix to read those things...rips the heart of a parent to shreds.

These are our children...we love them...we protect them...we want their lives to be filled with happiness...just as a parent of a "straight" child.

It is hard to raise any child...it makes it even harder to know that so many hold hatred for that child.

The hatred...the anger...the words...breaks the heart of a parent.

I have had to become pretty tough...the question is...should I have to of had because of someone elses personal beliefs?

I get that about Teddy btw and have always liked him but he upset me so I have to do what I do til' I'm no longer upset.
I have no idea how I upset you, or what upsets you. This is the third time already. You keep finding offense where none was intended.

Also, you seem to find me to blame in the Skombolis squabbles. I suspect that you agree with him. I don't know why, but c'est la vie. I've explained myself blue in the face, and don't care to do so any more. If you can't see merit in my complaint yet, you likely never will.

I have never intended to upset you, but you keep being offended. The first two times your feathers got ruffled, I tried to repair the damage. Smoothing things over has only been good for a day or three at best before you're miffed at me again.

I also like you, but staying in your good graces has been an effort, and apparently an unsuccessful one, so I won't be worrying about it any more. You can either cease looking for reasons to be offended by me, or not.

Skom I get. He seems to like facts
Facts?

His and my problem stems from his continually changing my words and then castigating me for his versions and making personal slanders. If you still see him as a purveyor of facts, then I don't see any future for us ever seeing eye to eye.

You and I have been able to post to each other with Humor and sensitivity......You used to say " I have a hard time controlling this mouth of mine"....And would call yourself "This Little Heathen"....You have been attacked by alot of posters on here (most of them are gone) Example...Annie and the Demoniac's....It use to bother me when you would say "I see I am causing a problem on here...so I will leave"....I would think "Don't go Annie....Stay and fight"....I think you are "here" now....As they say "You have found your voice".....Boy have you...j/k you know I love ya
Good to see you
After reading this I went out to have a cup of coffee and watch the light show against the side of the building. A list of those attacks started rolling through my mind much like the credits at the end of a movie.

It stopped however on one...that one became highlighted...glaring out at me while the others faded in to the background.

All that I could see was Ham's name...MOTN...and Ham trying to defend his friendship with me. My heart broke again just as it did when there were those that set out to destroy that friendship.

A little lonely old man that just wanted someone to recall those cherished memories with...a woman that wanted to do for him what she had not been able to do for her own father.

I can get past all the other attacks...I can forgive and move on...except for that one. I forget sometimes how much that hurt...last time I felt the pain was when Ham passed.

Okay...that is enough...
