Lol.. it's a hard job but someone has to do it, like taking out the trash..
Great, I feel so much better now that I'm not carrying all that h8te around, I guess being an atheist isn't that great after all and I'm pleased to inform that the sky did indeed forgive my momentary backsliding and filled me with Love once again, gotta Love that sky :D
Blessings dear Bro <3
Good evening JLU, sorry it took me a little while to respond to your post, but the only sky that we need to Bless us is the Lord Jesus Christ, defending to truth from those who are so misguided is like taking out the trash indeed ( the rhetoric they are talking, not the people themselves) it can get very tiresome at times, but as one friend of mine likes to say.......we must never weary of well doing.

Peace my friend.

I remember Frankenstein well. I'm 58 years old. And no, I've never played Frankenstein, but we did do Rock And Roll Hootchie Coo.

Maybe you might like some technical input on Frankenstein. Most of those Na's are upbeats in the first measure, then downbeats in the second. In 4/4 time :

/|||/-|| 0 -

Where | is a quarter note,/ an eighth, 0 a half, and - a measure divider.

This is the same sound as in ZZ Top’s La Grange


/|||||//|/

And you'll hear it in a lot of John Lee Hooker Detroit blues stuff. Notice the heavy upbeat in this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch...

It’s called “an upbeat” because when you’re strumming down-up down-up down-up down-up down-up down-up for 1-and-2-and-3-and-4-and, you’re mostly strumming on the way up, on the “and”s.

We covered Ten Years Gone from Zep, and Comfortably Numb and Brain Damage from Pink Floyd. I did a few Elton John songs, but not with the band. I liked Tiny Dancer ("The words she knows, the tune she hums") and Rocket Man ("all this science, I don't understand ... It's just my job five days a week") best.

As for the Allman Brothers, we did a ton of their songs - Blue Sky, Melissa, Aint Wastin Time No More, Stormy Monday, Jelly Jelly, Southbound, Get On With Your Life, Seven Turns, Come And Go Blues, It Aint Over Yet, Low Down Dirty Mean and many renditions of In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed.

Thanks for sharing. That music is dear to me.

You forget in your backsliding or never learned it... that Jesus took those types of ordinances out of the way... the ceremonial and judical parts of the Mosaic law. We use it mostly for reference.

<quoted text>Okay... I guess this is one of those Red-herring thingies... There were different kinds of slaveries... and some of them are not even called that any more as people are simply hired at contract to perform a certain task now-a-days or hired to do some obligatory work.
At that time service "mostly" was more closely related to Employer/employee versus Owner/slave (and there was that too). Then there were debt/bondage where a person owed a debt and instead of going to debtor's prison if he could not pay he would serve until he met his payment.
God isn't into Egypt/Hebrew or American-type of slavery.

<quoted text>Yes.
Not "my" interpretation.
Many examples. Here is just one.
"It was as if the elements had been unleashed. The sun spun round. Scorched by the incandescent heat of the weapon, the world reeled in fever. Elephants were set on fire by the heat and ran to and fro in a frenzy to seek protection from the terrible violence.
The water boiled, the animals died, the enemy was mown down and the raging of the blaze made the trees collapse in rows as in a forest fire. The elephants made a fearful trumpeting and sank dead to the ground over a vast area.
Horses and war chariots were burnt up and the scene looked like the aftermath of a conflagration. Thousands of chariots were destroyed, then deep silence descended on the sea. The winds, began to blow and the earth grew bright. It was a terrible sight to see.
The corpses of the fallen were mutilated by the terrible heat so that they no longer looked like human beings. Never before have we seen such a ghastly weapon and never before have we heard of such a weapon.
++++++++++
another:..."...(the weapon was) a single projectile
charged with all the power of the Universe.
An incandescent column of smoke and flame
As bright as the thousand suns rose in all its splendor...
An iron thunderbolt,
A gigantic messenger of death,
Which reduced to ashes
The entire race of the Vrishnis
And the Andhakas.
... the corpses were so burned
As to be unrecognizable.
The hair and nails fell out;
Pottery broke without apparent cause,
And the birds turned white.
... After a few hours
All foodstuffs were infected...
... to escape from this fire
The soldiers threw themselves in streams
To wash themselves and their equipment..."
The Ramayana, Mahabarata and other texts describe ancient wars and advanced weapons and crafts...over 10,000 years ago.
Vitrification is evidence all over this planet of those wars.
This is very interesting. You're speaking about weapons of mas annihilation just before what we generally have in text books and study material as 'recorded history'. You speak of this and I would like to research this more as you are speaking of a time when the Khemet civilization spread far and wide, more than the Persian and the Greco-Macedonian empire several thousands of years later.

Apparently, you are speaking of events that are not about the comet that struck the earth in a most violent fashion about 20000BC or in that neighborhood. And this era that you're speaking of, there also existed a reptilian race too, if I may not be mistaken. Could you please shed some more light on this?

Thanks.

Bonsoir Monsieur, my days are all blessed and happy although there have been sad times, God gave me Seraphine to help me through them. Soon I shall tell you if you do not already know, the more I tell people the less it hurts.
Bonsoir Monsieur Sora, I do not know of the sad times you have suffered, but if it really helps you to talk about it, then you are welcome to let me know as I will listen intently sir, just to say that all of us have gone through our trials and tribulations but God is faithful and just to bring us through them and deliver us to victory IN Christ Jesus, to be honest if it was not for him there are days when I may well have lost my sanity and gotten into some serious trouble, but he sustained me and he can do likewise for you and all who have the faith to trust and call upon him.

Peace and Blessings to you my friend.

Not honestly anyway.

It's always easier fer waspup ta put the clean robe o' fergiveness on hisself, an then put the dirty robe with his transgressions on someone else.

Might not make 'em any better, but it makes 'em feel better "look'n" clean whilst he makes someone else look dirtier with his own dirty robe.

Are you going to travel around the US protesting against churches who accept gay people and their relationships?
So I guess your answer is a subliminal, yet resounding "no" then.... you will not confront NAMbLA at the conventions or parades.

I tell you what... if I attended, let's say... Carlton Pearson's ministries when he was first starting to backslide and said that gay marriage was okay and there was no such thing as hell... I would ask to speak with him... if he continues that diatribe then eventually i would stand up in the middle of that large congregation and say that he is wrong. If he preaches The Word of God then I will stand up and say Amen.

I'm afraid you are quite mistaken. Jesus clearly reaffirmed his support of slavery (Luke 12:47-48, Ephesians 6:5, and 1 Timothy 6:1-2).

What do you mean by "use it mostly for reference"? Even if Jesus had not reaffirmed slavery as perfectly moral, all you'd be "referencing" was God's highly inconsistent morality. There is nothing "judicial" about the acceptance of slavery.
No political agenda necessarily... a biblical one... just that fornications is sin even though people try to pretty it all up.

An objective news source. You somehow manged to name two which are neither. Like I said, any comments form the ACLU themselves, i.e. the source? No?

All these are in my music... and so loved too.
I do believe one has to have an Indigenous understanding to appreciate more of what is truly rich, as against... Form what I have always known, they are the things which can never be bought and the soul holds onto those pearls of wisdom even in the onslaught of all that would crush such a spirit.

I don't believe for a minute even Jesus crushed one spirit so full of love and understanding, and that he simply amplifies that even more when he said...
"Consider the lilies of the field... "
"Even the little sparrow..."

Today's Prayer
Dear God, My heart is burdened for someone whom I love, who is gracious, kind, giving, loving, but who seems so confused when it comes to spiritual things. Like many people, this one claims a belief in you, but also believes that all other religions who worship their god, worship the same God. Jehovah God please open their eyes to see that you alone are the one true God. You are the creator and sent your precious son Jesus as the Savior of the world. Your Holy Spirit is the one who convicts us and guides us and seals us unto the day of redemption. You are the God of love and mercy above all, but also of justice and accountabilty. There is so much confusion in hearts around the world. You are not the author of confusion (according to your own Word, our Holy Bible). Please, let it be crystal clear to these lost souls that you are the answer to their hurts, problems, their searching and longing for something...the fulfillment of that empty place...the peace that passes all understanding. You are God. I beg you to show me what I can do or say to enlighten even one more soul. Work through me, Father, your loving child and willing servant. Thank you for hearing my prayer and for working in all of our lives. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
Prime time with God

Good Prayer. Amen.
