<quoted text>Hey PW ~ good posting :)
G'Day Serah,
Was just checking out your latest link...

I saw also you have the Mormon missionaries in for a cup-o-billy tea. Good for you.
[can't remember if they drink tea either?]

They gave me 'Enoch'+'Peal of Great Price + another'- which due to so many years with the homeless, I could not keep - while in Africa. They came back a few times as friends, even tho there was no chance of converting me.

Mine?
If a church must be a building, mine like many, is one not built by hands. Our body... as Jesus taught the 'kingdom is within'.

Interesting discussions around all these things do not subtract and we share a lot...

LUV U2! xx

Nor does it in my definition.
<quoted text>
What I oppose is the church that teaches so many millions of people to think like you do. Is there anything good at all about mankind to a Christian? You don't ever seem to acknowledge the other side of man's nature, which is to strive, to achieve, to excel, and to care.

<quoted text>
I haven't seen any differences yet. Your attitude is distinctly Christian. Remember, unbelievers don't really care whether you pray to saints or not, worship on Saturday or Sunday, or baptize yourselves with a sprinkle or immersion.
We care what you do that affects us.
Who are you referring to in your mind when you say "we"?

LOL! Brilliant. Because, well, they did trust exactly what the Bible said, didn't they? Although to be fair, the Bible also says that one should not test God, and intentionally poisoning yourself to make a point would seem to violate that.
It is impossible to know truth or actuality if you do not test that which is put before you.
That idea was put in the books by the "universal" church to predicate totalitarian theocracy, and nothing more--and it is wrong...

No secular humanists are satanists, and no satanists are secular humanists are satanists. We don't have a god.

You were right about one thing, atheism is a slow growing minority
I didn't say that.

The group to follow is not the fraction that is willing to call themselves atheist, but the fraction unwilling to identify as Christians. When over 50% of Americans don't care what Jesus thought, you'll start losing ground in concrete ways. The face of Congress will change, as will the face of America.

I understand that you might not care about America. But that is really what I am interested in primarily: pushing back and limiting the influence of the American Christian church in American culture.

Today's Prayer
Dear God, Thank you for all the children in the world. Every one is precious, a heritage and gift from you. I pray for protection, guidance, good health, loving families, positive role models, and many blessings upon these children. So many are mistreated. Others are covered in love. Some are spoiled, others have nothing--not even bare necessities. Please reach out and touch them all, and meet every need in the way you see best. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
Prime Time with God
Amen.

I'm not judging them, and not going into it in depth, but think it equally strange that a woman would want to have relationships with women as a man wanting to have a relationship with men.
Well, there's a good chance they feel just like you when they consider a male and female relationship.

Here's something that I find strange, is that theists begin discussions or interactions with the the off the wall assertion that there is such a thing as an invisible disembodied magical super brain.

Well, you don't need to poison yourself. A much more benign and simple test would be to, say, pray to have the severed limbs of the faithful regenerated.

Sorry, but your mythology only owns those who sign on to it. Enjoy.
you're signed on to it, you left it and still fighting it. So all you get is the bad which is the religion, and no get the good which is Jesus Christ. is just a lose/lose for you.

I always thought it was poor design of equipment picking up induction of entropy freed electrons, or interference of "crystal" emission. So, I was always trying ta build better "chokes". Pretty smart for a little kid huh?
VERY smart for a little kid BT!

I just didn't know anything then...
I mean - had never read, seen nothing re black and white or color, etc etc - nothing but the Greek Myths [kids], which I've forgotten,+ Old Testament...

I was given after... the Mahabharata... but facts were prior too... I never saw nor read of such.

In essence I am still learning English, practice all the time while writing, yet, when studying any of these things, have my own 'hieroglyphs' and understand another language in my mind. Crazy folk Ja? I still don't own a science book!

Now in photonics it's much quicker to see in the light such things as they are... the crystal of our mind can then filter the choke! >>>grin<<<

Nope. I'm not constrained by it in the least. And what I now know are empty threats just reinforce that this religion you follow is most definitely NOT about love.

Trust YOU to be venting your hatred at others and spewing out your lies and insults at people, whenever I come to this thread.
You are not, nor never could be, a real Christian. Your soul is too evil for THAT to ever happen.
is what Skombolis do to you freethinkers that you all hate him so much? now here you come with more hate frustration and vitriol.

I never see a group of people so riled up against one person. Skombolis writer whatever you did to cause these freethinkers to be so unraveled in hate and frustration, you need to tell the rest of the Christians on here how you do it, because is fun seeing how you in they heads and affecting them.

A wave as your shout riccochetes - excuse my spelling!- all the way back across the oceans. The weather is trying to cool down, but still storms in the air from heat. It's 11-30am. Fri... and last night's sleep was very broken.[ many other folks problems to consider ]

What do you like to do for R & R on your week-ends... even if you bring some work home, it must be cool there at the Art Museum?

No one ever gets right with a GOD in this life.
Your salvation has nothing to do with you.
It has EVERYTHING to do with me, because God did the drawing in and convicting of my heart, and I answered and did not not harden my heart like so many many have done, and have allowed bitterness to seep in and take root, and then come back and set themselves up up as know it all's and authorities on the subject of salvation, it's really sad and pathetic at the same time.

Romans 1:22
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools

Define church.
<quoted text>
Why do you think that I care what your opinions are about anything? Your reading comprehension is abysmal.
LOL...Talk about bad reading comprehension. When did I say that you care what my opinions are? I am telling you that I dont care what YOUR opinions are..be it of the 'church' or of the faith or whether YOU choose to follow the teachings of Christ or have a negative view of the 'church'. You keep saying things like if others dont want you (and you refer to yourself as 'we') to have a poor opinion of the church then blah blah blah. I keep telling you nobody cares how you view Christianity.Your ego seems to prevent you from hearing that

Haha..they do seem to get obsessed with me. I could live in their heads rent-free if I wanted but I have seen what's in there in some of their posts and would have to leave the windows open to air it out. I think instead I will just watch from a distance with amusement:)
