" Conquest of Paradise "
Lyrics: 
Hmmmmmmmmmm.
Hmmmmmmmmmm.
Hmmmmmmmmmm.
Hmmmmmmmmmm.
There shines a light in the heart of man
That defies the dead of the night
A beam that glows within every soul
Like wings of hope taking flight
A sunny day, when a baby's born
The little things that we say
A special sparkle in someone's eye
Simple gifts, every day
Somewhere there's a paradise
Where everyone finds release
It's here on earth and between your eyes
A place we all find our peace
Come - open your heart
Reach for the stars
Believe your own power
Now, here in this place
Here on this earth
This is the hour
It's just a place we call paradise
Each of us has his own
It has no name, no, it has no price
It's just a place we call home
A dream that reaches beyond the stars
The endless blue of the skies
Forever wondering who we are?
Forever questioning why?
Come - open your heart
Reach for the stars
Believe your own power
Now, here in this place
Here on this earth
This is the hour
There shines a light in the heart of man
That defies the dead of the night
A beam that glows within every soul
Like wings of hope taking flight
Like wings of hope taking flight
***
Shalom to both you and Brotherly Love!
We move on... in Love.
Warrior of Peace.

My apologies.
I pray you're having a great day.

What a pleasant way to justify terrible behavior.

Why do the heathen rage my sister? Why do they rebel against Yahweh Tzevaot?
Yes, I am no longer a Christian, but I still do believe in the Creator (Yahweh Elohiym) and I still do believe in the Savior of all mankind...if they would only accept this free gift, and I call him Yahshuah Ha Mashiach, while you would say Jesus.
I go back to the untainted Hebrew roots of the ancient Qahal (meaning assembly or gathering > of people who followed the Savior's teachings). Just like the believers of The Most High One were called out of Babylon and freed from Egypt, so too must they be called out of this spiritual and even physical rebirth of pagan Rome.
Revelation 18:4 shows the Savior asking His people to come out of her.'Her' or 'Woman' in prophetic references would normally refer to church. Most theologeans and biblical scholars will tell you this. Once someone is adopted into the faith of Abraham (Av'raham), they are no longer gentile but are Hebrew (some would say Jew for whatever reason).
We do live in the time of Grace and Mercy (Rakhamim and Kas'ed) but notwithstanding, it doesn't mean we shouldn't stand up for the right and against the wrong. We should love our brothers and sisters from ALL walks of life, but they make it difficult when they uphold and love and stand for sin and evil. It shall be the same in the end my sister, if the Ruach HaQuodesh (Holy Spirit) cannot work within man to help separate them from evil and they cling to the evil with all their might and passion, then to destroy evil, sadly the wicked must be destroyed along with it.
If you plead with people and they won't listen for their own good, then you must lambast them for upholding wickedness and being unwise. I don't believe in violence against them, but I speak harsh words in order to prevent them from falling like ash and embers on the great Yom of His wrath.
Shalom my sister.

That's beautiful Andrew. I agree and admire your direct approach. I have left the church, I only attend small gatherings now, it seems the time has come upon us and that may very well be why the heathens rage. I meant no offence to you and was merely trying to make a point as I noticed you are being more gentle and I wasn't sure if you were Jewish or not. Or if you would even address me. I am glad that you did and we believers do need to stick together now. You are spot on, subtlety and love does not achieve anything with some.
Shalom to you Brother :-)

If I can appreciate living, enjoy the wonders of life yet not acknowledge a GOD(a single controller)a supposed creator of all things. What aspect of this life would I be missing?

Simply put: Life is woderful!

What is the value of believing in a GOD in this life?

If you don't believe in a GOD in this life, what will you lack in this life?

Who is hating though Epi?

I see the Qu's the C-S's the tri-whatever's hating.
All in the name of your God..

Who in your opinion is hating here?

Again- it's not personal what those that don't believe
in Christ believe.. Or it shouldn't be.

God doesn't need our defending.. People need our Love.

Again I ask you- is Christianity really this weak??

Love and lust run a fine race.

Love and hate walk a fine line.

Jealousy and vengences hold hands.

Greed and deceit are alway there.

A pure heart can understand and see all.

Those who claim to have faith as it pertains to a GOD, can do what for others as a result of having this faith?..excluding speaking words.

How does a GOD reward you as a result of faith?

Does the reward speak for itself?

This is my proof, for me, most people in my situations and up to two years ago, with my crappy circumstances, end up insane, dead, drug addicts, in prison etc… I've seen it. I've almost been some of it. No one can ever convince me that there is no God. He saved me, He Blessed me, He truly loves me.
I made the right choice, finally, if it turns out to be a lie so be it, this is the best my life has ever been and it just keeps getting better :-)
To quote Serah... "Thank you Jesus for caring."
This is the problem with you believers - you don't credit yourself enough. You were responsible for saving yourself and your sister, and yet you give credit to an imagined being.

If your deity was real, and if it was moral, why did you go through that pain in the first place? Do you not believe God is omniscient and omnipotent? What, did He so enjoy your suffering that He waited to save you until you conveniently saved yourself?

That doesn't make any logical sense whatsoever. You are a strong person - I don't know if your trials made you this way or you were born strong, but you are the reason you are no longer under the power of those horrible people.

I'm absolutely sure that your religion is deeply spiritual and meaningful for you and that you draw strength from it. And, as I've written exhaustively, your deity is subjectively real for you. That doesn't make your God real for a Hindu or a Yanomami. Just you. If you can't make that logical connection, that's fine. Either way, it really won't affect your experiences.

How does one know that the "rules and regulations" in the bible came from a GOD, and not man?

If you break the rules, what should happen doesn't happen,..why?
