I have done lot's of research, and have no purpose in presupposition. Just looking for facts of civilization throughout world history.
Lore, myth, and religion are part of that...therefore indicators...just as geology, evolution, language, and technology are...
Thanks

Good morning. Something Le Le said bothered me a bit the other day but now not at all. I'm not sure if it was even directed at me or you but in short said some speak hate in the name of Christ. I've been told when I've witnessed here that saying Jesus Christ is the only way and that any other path goes to hell is hateful. My view is it would be hate not to say this if you know it. Its hard in a forum to know but just thankful here the Lord saved a wretch like me. Nothing but Him can I brag on. Think I will go back to that park. Soon the doc. is going to clear me and its back to work. Take care.

We aren't going to change the world- my dear friend,
but we can sure try our damndest to make it a smoother ride
for our fellow peeps. and those who will happen upon this plain
after us...
You might be right but one can hope.

My theory is...when all of us over the age of 40 are gone...we will see a different world. The younger a person is...IMO...the less judgmental they seem to be.

I have the opportunity to talk to a lot of 20 year olds. They are more willing it seems to accept differences. They seem to want less anger...less hatred...more understanding.

In a sense...those that express their disdain for others...are doing their part to create change...just not the way that they had hoped for.

I have talked to those in that gay community that are in their 50s, 60s and older...they paved the way to where we are now. Some were beaten...threatened...lost their jobs...thrown out of their home...all knew people that lost their lives. It is already a different world.

All of those threats still exist but thanks to people such as yourself...it is a safer world for those people to come out of hiding. My hope is that one day no mother has to fear for their child's safety...nor to hear the words spoken against a child that they have loved and raised.

It is not just the gay community that feels the affects of such hatred...there are others.

About a year after 9/11 I was talking to a guy that worked at the market down the street from me...he was Muslim. I asked if he had felt the repercussions from that event. He told me that some friends...people that he had a relationship with...now crossed the street to avoid him.

A couple of months ago I had the honor of spending some time with a Native American...there are still those that see them as less than.

Racism toward Hispanics and African Americans still exist...people look at the homeless and instead of seeing people that have had a hard time...they see bums that are to be feared.

If there is a God out there somewhere...I don't believe that he meant it to be this way...at least not the side of him that I see.

You know LeLe...after all these years...each time that I read the story of Matthew Shepard...I still cry for his mom. I would like to think that one day...there will be no need to cry for a mom that lost her son due to hatred. I know...I am naive...thinking...believing that it could happen.

Anyway...thanks for letting me express myself...

>>>BigSmile<< < 4U2 Brother... My Bad!
Sometimes... just sometimes... I find it very disturbing to read/hear just how sharp and rude Christians can be toward one another. ANY harsh words, risen voices, have always affected me like that since I left my Island Home of only knowing peace and laughter...
Maybe... just maybe... as Moses was meek... due to my hypersensitivity of such things as 'violent'... it became the very reason I felt the call as a PW. This doesn't mean I will not stand up for right. There are 'ways'- I believe to fight for truth - and it doesn't mean pulling another down in the process if one on one.
Despite what a subject matter is, somehow between the Love of God and a fellow's heart there is more dignity than we dare to find out?
You also know me well enough too... and for that we are both the better for having cared. Thank you.
Blessings always in His Love and Peace.
In the Spirit of God all tests are made with Love!
Sorry no god ever existed!

Here's what I'll do. I'll stand here and continue to watch you moan and groan like a child. You've been belly aching about this for what a week now?
Your behaviour and actions in here have been just as bad and reprehensible as any ones. Can't you see that, because most everyone else can?
Give it a rest and move on cry baby. If you don't like the way you're being treated in here than by all means take it down the road to another thread. Nobody is holding you down and making you stay in here where you feel you are being SO ABUSED!!!
Get over it and get over your self. Your moaning and groaning like a child and crying out for people to come to your aid isn't working in here slick and it never will. Your childish playground routine of crying out "I'm such an abused victim, someone help me" doesn't work in the adult world little boy.
Take the hint!!!
Hello Red Aps

Your response seems to struggle with what you want to say and what your GOD wants you to say. That happens alot with professing christians.

Yes, this is a good word Epiphany! In fact I just spoke to a friend on the phone. He started off by saying this has been a very rough week. I wish to be able to do just as you say but in truth it might be easier said than done? Just starting to feel better here and so thankful that God has let be enjoy each day. Its funny but while I do live in Fl. most of the time I miss it with work ect. Went to a park close by that backs up to Tampa Bay and think its been a year since I was there. Its a favorite place as its quiet and off the beaten path. God bless everyone and indeed may His peace find everyone today!

Hello Epi
You must be exhausted with all the encouraging you do for the priviledged. Not sure your GOD will honor it tho, you're supposed to help the "Needy".

It's like preaching to the "choir"; at least you're doing something. I'm not doing a darn thing except complain.

It's really not Henry~ I doubt that you have opened a bible to read friend. Maybe if you skim a bit - you will start to feel what we have. If you do read- then go to the gospels and read about Jesus life. Pretty amazing history.
The bible is written and translated by people that God trusted to do so.
I believe that you are here seeking to know more- & that your life has some happy parts, but you know that something is missing. Your contridictory attitude and negative posts are due to the hardship of giving up what you once thought was true. You have always thought that God was fake and that accepting Him was a cop out. Now that you are here- you are having stirrings of knowing that we are telling you the truth.
Your rebellion is normal Henry. We ALL had those times before completely believing.

Whether YOU believe or not- We are ALL God's CHILDREN~

Billions of people of all nationalities, white , black, red, brown,Asian.
ALL job status, rich,poor, middle income,male, female, teens, pre teens ,twenty somethings , thirty somethings, in their 40's,50's ,60's,70's 80's, 90's, 100 something year olds...
....now, 5 years ago, 10 yrs ago 50 yrs ago, 100 yrs ago,1000 yrs ago, almost 2000 yrs ago..
ALL KNOW Him to be true due to similar life experience in HAVING MET OUR LORD Jesus Christ . Through the BLESSING of The Holy Spirit we were given THE gift of Jesus from God.
B I L L I O N S of people ALL agree He "IS" . Not because we read about Him in a book~ He was not "taught" to us LIKE math or science or Oprahs favorite "serve self" books...
But because we experienced His invitation and the miracles He performs in our lives.
No other proof is needed of His existence,as billions of us KNOW the truth. YOU too can MEET your brother Jesus simply by asking Him into your heart.

..... people did NOT write the Bible , GOD made it RIGHT.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>
What is your complaint with that? Are you offering this quote and link as support for one of your claims that I am a liar? If so, what lie? Once again, you can't even begin to make that claim without juxtaposing two contradictory quotations.
Also, can you rebut the claim that Christianity teaches a very negative attitude about mankind and the world, as well as teaching dependency on the god to be rescued from all of that? You don't seem to have even tried. You just object. Too bad. You need to rebut it.
Recall that the comment was a response to Brother Lee Love when he wrote, "It seems, to me, that as this world hurls into chaos and destruction, that everyone seems to be waiting for someone, or something, to remedy the world's problems."
That is a common comment. The thread is littered with them. Here's one like it from Counter_Strike:
"We are flawed emotional beings prone to err, lust and greed."
http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...
And another from lil whispers:
"I fully realize mankind is a total failure"
http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...
This is a common mindset among Christians, and it is the result of an extremely pessimistic, nihilistic and misanthropic Christian doctrine.
Mankind is what it is! The nuclear age is probably the end of humanity!

For the self-righteous know I'm saved wanna-be christian.

Here is a free reprograming:

The writer of Matthew 10:22 claims jesus said, endure to the end, you "Shall" "Be" "Saved".

Celebrating before the "End" is kinda foolish,..I think.

I perfer to use my own imagination, once again you're making claims that can't be substantiated by anyone, or thing but your word only.
At this point, we're back where we started.
I understand a GOD will never show up, lets see if your dreams will saved the world.
Why did you bother with that post?

You could've just said, "I have no comeback, so now I'll start to talk shit."
