True DR.
I’m good. How about you, you doing ok?
Won’t don any good to try and not keep it real. Life has a way of waking you up and proving reality to you. Making you realize that, like everyone, it can happen to you too. That we are not as infallible as we sometimes think we are.

I am not sure that I understand...why are both of you putting the blame on the congregation of a church and the church itself for the lack of Boots' belief.
Since neither of you (at least I haven't heard either of you say that you were present during Boots' attendance at church for 40 years) how could either one of you know that it was the "Christians" and the "church" that was at fault?
Maybe Boots slept through all the sermons...who knows...but why judge them as "so-called Christians", "clueless church" or in any way for that matter when you simply are just guessing.
Maybe he was listening and still could not believe.
What should they have done?
It may be that Boooots was a late bloomer.

It took him a wile to see through the smoke and mirrors.

Psalm 17

1 Hear me, Lord, my plea is just;
listen to my cry.
Hear my prayer—
it does not rise from deceitful lips.
2 Let my vindication come from you;
may your eyes see what is right.
3 Though you probe my heart,
though you examine me at night and test me,
you will find that I have planned no evil;
my mouth has not transgressed.
4 Though people tried to bribe me,
I have kept myself from the ways of the violent
through what your lips have commanded.
5 My steps have held to your paths;
my feet have not stumbled.
6 I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;
turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
7 Show me the wonders of your great love,
you who save by your right hand
those who take refuge in you from their foes.
8 Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings
9 from the wicked who are out to destroy me,
from my mortal enemies who surround me.
10 They close up their callous hearts,
and their mouths speak with arrogance.
11 They have tracked me down, they now surround me,
with eyes alert, to throw me to the ground.
12 They are like a lion hungry for prey,
like a fierce lion crouching in cover.
13 Rise up, Lord, confront them, bring them down;
with your sword rescue me from the wicked.
14 By your hand save me from such people, Lord,
from those of this world whose reward is in this life.
May what you have stored up for the wicked fill their bellies;
may their children gorge themselves on it,
and may there be leftovers for their little ones.
15 As for me, I will be vindicated and will see your face;
when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.

I agree and find it amusing that we get accused of spamming a thread devoted to Jesus, with scripture!
LOL
Good morning to you and I wish you a lovely Blessed day <3
I recall going to a church meeting one evening at a church in a new town where we had moved. I had been accustomed to lively discussions at church meetings in previous years, because the topic would always be controversial and people held many opinions, but at this particular place the people just sat around and told each other what their particular copy of the Bible said, since they had various editions of the Bible there.

I could really see no point to that group at all, because there was nothing to discuss, nothing to learn, nothing to think about. Just people trying to prove they could read.

I kind of think constant posting of Bible verses on a discussion thread is much the same; just people trying to prove they can cut and paste Bible verses ad nauseum.

The likelihood that anyone is going to post anything that others have not heard or read many many times before is not very high.

I want to take this time to 'thank' my 'WSJLM?''arch enemy','Hick-Up,the Chief of Internet DORKS',for calling me a 'dork' the other day,because when he did,somehow I thought about the old t.v. show,'Mork-n-Mindy',and that's why I responded to him by saying 'Nah Noo Nah Noo!'. I was actually trying to find a Mork-n-Mindy YouTube video to post in response,but ended up with this video of that precious little girl. And I'm glad I did,because I believe the Lord wanted me to use that for the Pro-Life Movement. God Bless,Doctor REALITY.

How does pasting Bible verses contribute to discussion? Is this not a discussion thread?

Why can't anyone interested in their belove scriptures not look them up and read them themselves to their heart's content?

Tide....total intellectual dishonesty. In what possible scenario would being gay have to do with whether someone is honest? Context doesnt change blatant bigotry where being in a certain demographic is synonymous with something negative. Just like being Christian has nothing to do with whether someone is dishonest. And adding "filthy" just shows the level of hatred felt towards the entire group. You should never speak on bigotry or predjudice again. Your hypocrisy has reached statopheric proportions
the philosophy of christianity requires dishonesty,.

I see you consider yourself a spokesman

I NEVER read the Bible verse posts, just as I ignore the squawking of crows.

Fair enough. I'll have a discussion when there is one to be had, I'm not interested in trading barbs with people all the time, anymore.

I love Bible study as well, this thread used to be a great one for that. Now it's a joke, like most threads in topix.

I always appreciate it when scripture is posted and sometimes even discussed, without mockery. I know others that appreciate it also.

No one has the right to tell me or anyone else what we can post and how to post.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
