Fill the cup to the brim,Then he/she has to take the time to drink in the beauty.

When the tummy is full happy is he/she then watch the foating away as in sweet dreams.

Sorry, but I no longer read verses from the Bible, so I don't know what was in that part. I think you are being rather presumptuous to state what I do or do not know.
I will state though, that you do not know any more than I or anyone else knows if there is a God.
God by virtue of being known to exist would not be a topic of debating his existence, if he was known to exist.
It is also rather hypocritical of you to call me presumptuous in pointing out your lack of Godly knowledge, what is hypocritical is for you to say that I know no more about God than anyone who do not believe and dismiss my knowledge that is imparted to every true believer by his spirit as a "con job" and how I've been had hook, line and sinker, while accusing me of not knowing what it is that you know or know not........WHEEEEEEEEW.

Truth is that it is your own words that allows me to know where your head is at on this subject, without sounding "all knowing" you really are like an open book to me, and you know I have a theory about atheist like yourself, I believe that deep down you do know that the existence of a being far greater than man does exist and that it is nagging at you deep down at your core and you don't really have the gumption to face it and take on the vast possibility of God's existence, and so you avoid reading scripture like I posted because you are afraid to face it and open up your mind to how wrong and off keyed you have been for all of your life. Really very sad.

Which god? Maybe you have the wrong god. Perhaps the real gods, if any, don't care for the one you call "God." After all, America started going to hell shortly after putting that word into the national motto, onto the paper currency, and into the pledge in the fifties.

Well one can see it that way I suppose, some can love and have faith without payment of any kind though, happens all the time and can be effortless as well. I guess it would depend on the individual and whether free means monetary value or not. Have a wonderful day Mike :)

<quoted text>Who are you referring to here Mike? May as well step up, act like a man, and hit us in the chin eh? I don't mean the people trying to sell you junk, I mean the "self-righteous proclaiming christians" sharing words with you. Happy Easter, it is Sunday down here, the birds are singing, the lawns have been watered by rain, and another day has dawned.
Matthew 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself......
Why would a Christian feel worthless? We feel loved and cared for, we feel Blessed and we love the life we have been given ~ our Present, our Gift from GOD. Being humans, we are affected by the behavior other humans, and we hurt. However, we are all miracles, we are all Children of GOD, and accordingly, none of us are worthless. Our actions determine the us in we :)
If I were "rich" and had all the things I wanted, I wouldn't be on a cheap entertainment site.

AS for you self-righteous christians who claim to have everything within the belief of your GOD, seem to have fallen onto this cheap entertainment site with.. "Fake joy, happiness, comfort, and value.

Most of them, yes. You don't, and most of the rest of the Christian posters here don't either.

That would be reason enough. But there is more. I see Christians on these threads and in my life that are absolutely miserable.

You assume too much. Why would you be perfect in heaven? The angels that rebelled weren't. Are you expecting to be turned into a robot?

Also the bible says Jesus Followers will rule over angels:
1st Cor.6:3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life!

Therefore the Jesus Follower will not be like the Angel, the Jesus Follower will have authority over Angels.
"Therefore"? Because you expect to have dominion over the angels, you think that you will be perfect? That's a logical disconnect of the highest order. Doesn't your bible say that you have dominion over the animals now? Where's your "therefore we are perfect" for that?
trifecta1 wrote:
So that 1/3 of Angels that was cast out of Heaven due to rebellion, the Jesus Follower will have a nature higher than that.
Then you think that your god will no longer lust for the worship of those that are free to disobey him, but convert you into obedient robots? If that's what he wanted, why not build us like that and take us all?

You don't make sense. And if you are correct, neither does your god. You describe a capricious, irrational and sadistic god. Look at how many failed souls he made and threw into the torture pit just to have a few percent that would worship him freely.

I'm not sure what it will be like. But I would figure whatever love the Jesus Follower had for YHWH on this earth and in this life, in heaven that love will be multiplied a billion by the perfecting of the Jesus Follower.
A third of the angels disagreed. According to myth, they knew your god personally. They knew what heaven had to offer. And they freely chose to leave it. You have zero reason to think that it won't be the same for you: a chance to rebel and be cast out of heaven. Your god seems to prefer that.
trifecta1 wrote:
YHWH will give the Jesus Follower a nature where the Jesus Follower is not a robot, a nature that is higher than the angel, but will have no desire to rebel.
That's a robot.

Besides, your god has no interest in such creatures or he would have made us that way on earth. Your assumption, which you cannot support with scripture, contradicts everything else your bible teaches about your god and what it likes.

Sorry if this makes you uncomfortable.

Why are you even attempting to figure out Angels that are invisible and of the Spiritual realm of existence???
I'm not. They don't exist.

And the only spiritual realm is this one that we live in.

If you are imagining make-believe lands and worshiping nonexistent ghosts, you are not spiritual. Spirituality comprises a sense of connectivity to a mysterious and awe-inspiring reality, and the sense of gratitude that follows.

How is living life as if you're an alien in your own universe, one which you consider vile, spiritual?

How is it spiritual to feel like a ghost that is temporarily trapped in vile case of flesh in a failed world from which you hope to be rescued?

Your religion cheats you out a chance at authentic spirituality by teaching you to hate your body and your world, and diverting your attention from it to nothingness.

Discussions do not make me uncomfortable. If they did, I would not discuss. Do you like to engage in activities that make you uncomfortable??

God did make he first humans that way on earth. The presence of the Enemy of God, tempted the first humans. They knew it was not the voice of God, and they yielded to a fraud. Humans introduced sin into existence, not God. Humans are responsible for sin.

1/3 of Angels disagreed, because they was a WAR. Lucifer, was an extremely potent and powerful presence in heaven. Pride took him over, and he went after God. That just shows how powerful the enemy of God is. A Jesus Follower will not have lucifer in heaven to start a war, so I'm quite comfortable in that I will not want to rebel.

However that is the afterlife. For now the blessings is this life is good. When I get to Glory with the Christ, that is a whole another existence. I will be concerned with that existence, when it comes.

<quoted text>Yes ~ I wonder what it is that is required for one to have no doubt? I often ponder that and can never find an answer. Some say they have walked away from JESUS, and yet why would one ever walk away from their best friend; one who is always there and will never let you down? Why would you walk away from never ending comfort? And what do you find in place of all that JESUS can give us?
My only answer to those who say they have walked away from JESUS is to say that they never really walked with HIM in the first place ~ doubt must have been overriding FAITH.... It is the only answer that makes sense, in my humble opinion :)
If a GOD were all that to you, why are you on an entertainment site and not spending quality time with your GOD?

Well I happen to think your analysis of who has the gifts of spirit based on a internet billboard is quite absurd. Looks as if because Christians defend their faith, to you they do not have peace or the gifts of the Spirit.

Jesus defended and discussed passionately. Does that mean by your definition Jesus did not have the fruits of the Spirit and did not have peace?

You see Christians on this billboard and in your life that are miserable?? You can actually see the lives of Christians that are on this billboard??? Really? how so?

Maybe in your life behind the billboard you need to hang around different Christians :)

I will be perfect in heaven, because God is His word says I will be perfect in heaven.

Humans don't have dominion over [all] animals now. Go and try and tame a crocodile and see what happens. We lost dominion when sin was introduced.

All your theological gyrations and hypothetical arguments into a spiritual world is all precedent on the presence of Sin, Lucifer and a War.

And all three will not be present when the Jesus Follower enters Glory. Eventually Satan and his kingdom will be eternally damned, therefore no sin, and no war. Eternal Peace for the Jesus Follower. Glory to God!

IANS, if U disagree that all things are possible with God it should depend on what U feel is impossible. From the looks of things, from the farthest reaches of the universe to the smallest unit of life or matter we've discovered, it seems as though there are not much we can say that is impossible unless U can think of something.
There is plenty that is impossible.
DeAngelo of Memphis wrote:
So all things ARE possible through "a powerful force or entity that transcends space and time" or something like that, right. If U feel that my argument is flawed, point out where U disagree.
What argument? You've merely stated that some amazing things are true, and that you are unaware of anything that is impossible.

The scripture in question - Matthew 17:20 - "And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

You can't think of a single thing that is impossible for you? For starters, how about you remove a mountain by talking to it.

Then visit the sun without a spacecraft and without burning. Then swim into abyssal waters. Then inhale a liter chlorine gas and survive. Then get younger. Then destroy energy. Then violate the law of entropy. Then accelerate to greater than the speed of light. Then construct a perpetual motion machine. Then find a solution to the equation a^n + b^n = c^n where n is an integer greater than two.

Why don't you know that some things are impossible? Why is this conversation necessary?
