In the practice of law, there's a saying:
If the facts are on your side, pound the facts.
If the law is on your side, pound the law.
If neither the facts nor the law are on your side, pound the table.
Posting verses is the Christians' equivalent of pounding the table.
Great metaphor. Thanks!!

Rage on little malcontent, you've been spewing that atheistic garbage here for years now and no one is buying into your devil given lies, I am garnering victory in Christ while you are stewing in your bitterness and misery.

On the contrary she is standing firm on her principals that you address her correctly, and there is nothing "weak" about that.

Here is why.

Mr Pusskins and Little Whiskers

Life for Emily and Mr Pusskins is dreamy, until the day she comes home with a Very Special Present ... a KITTEN! Even though Little Whiskers is small and looks awfully angelic, she is not. She a tiny package of peskiness. Little Whiskers deliberately creates all sorts of mess and mayhem around the house, and the worst thing is that it's Mr Pusskins who gets the blame! So how will Mr Pusskins deal with this naughty nuisance?

Now, now. She is using 'lil whiskas' as a term of endearment.

She is calling you a 'kitten'.

Just
lil whispers, I don't enjoy being unkind. I don't like bursting people's bubbles. When I see someone is happy, I never want to say anything to take away from their happiness, except if they are happy because they enjoy harming another person.

I am happy for you that you believe what you do, and live by it; if that is truly making you happy.

Anyway, are you able to separate in your mind that the words you read in the Bible, even if by the most remote chance of some supernatural being having put those words into the minds of the authors, that all of the words that you read came from the hands of men?

These words were then assembled into a big library of writings (I am being a bit free with describing how it happened), and then a man, or a committee of men, sat down and looked at the many writings that they had collected, and made some very human decisions as to what writings they would incorporate into what we now call the Bible, and what words they would leave out.

I assume they made these decisions based on whatever goal they had at the time, when they decided (I understand from an order from Constantine) to put together a common package of what people should follow, as history claims that after the beginning of the Christian religion, people had split off into many factions (much like our 40,000 denominations and sects of Christianity today), and Constantine, or whoever, decided that some order needed to be brought to bear on this before it caused serious problems (which we see today still does cause serious problems, with all the various opinions).

The Bible, no matter what people believe about a supernatural being, is JUST a book, which is made up of many books. It expresses the opinions, or the contrived opinions, of those who created the words in those books. Nothing more.

Yes, there is some very good literature in the Bible, and many songs and poems have been created using some of the verses. I recall in primary school having to memorize and say out loud the passage about "I Shall lift up mine eyes unto the hills....". Some of these are beautiful pieces of work.

The soft porn of the Songs of Solomon are very erotic and very beautiful and show even back then how people liked to write about their love life and sexual experiences. But there certainly is nothing godly about those songs.

The Proverbs have some very interesting and good sayings in them, and they make you think.

The 10 commandments have some good laws, and some not so good.

The Golden rule which predates Jesus time, I understand, by many years, having been taken from other previous writers, is, IMO, the one rule that if we all followed it to the letter (which, of course, is not possible that all men will do anything with the same interest, because we are all individuals), we would remove most of the problems in the world, because if one applied that to everything that happens in the world, it would stop many of the things that man does today that brings harm to others and/or our environment.

Much of the early Old Testament is a history of the horrible things that people did to each other back several thousand years ago, and we see these same things occurring in countries that value rules ahead of human life today.

Western society (in general) has long ago learned that we can't treat other people the way Leviticus and Deuteronomy talk about, because that breaks all the rules of human rights and human decency, so most sane believers overlook those rules, but we still have the fanatics who want to keep them.

These people are dangerous.

The Creation stories are just that, stories, made up by people who had great imaginations but no knowledge. Primitive societies, it seems, have always created fantasies to make them more comfortable about things they had no knowledge of.

In John's gospel Jesus uses the term I am to connect himself to aspects of God's nature and to identify himself as the one who.
supplies all needs
brings knowledge about God to all people
is the way for people to find God and become God's people.
promises that all who believe in him will have enternal life
everyone is invited to share in the common life a new people of God.Just afew things to say from the book of Messages of God.
Because the books of the bible have been translated several times from the language that the original Hebrew writers wrote in, to Greek, to Roman, to English, etc., I highly suspect that the big "I Am" that so many sermons get preached about is a translation into English or a mis-translation into English, of the name that the writer claimed God gave to Moses when Moses asked Him.

Like our names today have certain meanings in certain languages, but most of us are not even aware of those meanings. the name the author used was likely loosely translated to "I am" (I see that there are other translations too, such as 'he is').

My name, if you look it up in books that give meanings to names, means "crowned with Laurel" but I am certain that my parents had no knowledge of that when they named me, and in fact I was named after my dad's youngest brother.

Someone 2000 years from now, if a religion came from something with that name in it, might translate it as crowned with laurel and then try to attach some sort of deep meaning to that phrase, when the name when given did not intend that.
