And here we have yet another fine example of a Christian upbringing in play.
Why would saying that I used to be a Christian, for example, count as a lie to a Christian like you? Because you felt like maligning the whole class of unbelievers like you think your god does? Do you believe that you are expected to do that because your bible teaches you to think that way?
"Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ." - I John
Is that where you learned to be such a fine person?

For me, this thread has been a real eye opener.
I never knew there was so much ignorance out there.
What a bunch of cave dwellers.
So it's their ignorance that impresses you, huh?

For me, it's the moral turpitude - the ease with which they call others liar, fool, bigot, and the like. And not just us unbelievers. They cannibalize one another.

It's utterly nauseating. I have developed a new level of contempt for this religion in this thread. I didn't think that was possible.

But Teddy, you do those things too. Everyone here seems more involved with 'self' than anything else, like the world.... so what happens? War.

You have as little comprehension of the allegory of Job as the Christians do.
Job in short:
God lets shit happen.
Man complains.
Other men blame the man.
God tells them all to shut up and that they don't know shit and have no saw in the matter.
The End
Later ending added: "And they all lived happily ever after."
You are correct. God allows things to happen, for one reason or another. Maybe to get our attention... Job comes to mind...

<quoted text> True enough, she MEANS to post discord and ignorance on this thread.
What you suggest is not HL's intent.

Does she seek to provoke thought and create understanding or raised awareness in regard to a variety of subjects due to that thought process she hopes to enhance?

Certainly.

However, for a moment lets say that she is trying to do what you mentioned above. I can assure you that you have seniority within the thread in those areas and your position isn't threatened in the least, you will retain your status.

But, as I said, you needn't be alarmed or feel at peril, HL only seeks to bring about new and more comprehensive ways in which to look at the issues discussed on the WSJLM thread.

Do not worry, you will not be replaced.

<quoted text>Interesting. Lots of fascinating accounts in Job. Now there is a Hero of Faith.
NOTES ON JOB: "The ancient folktale of a patient Job (1.1-2.13; 42.7-17; Jas. 5.11) circulated orally among oriental sages in the second millennium B.C. and was probably written down in Hebrew at the time of David and Solomon or a century later (about 1000-800 B.C.)." - Bruce M. Metzger

"P.H.D from Princeton Theological Seminary. He stayed at Princeton as a Teaching Fellow in New Testament Greek. On April 11, 1939, he was ordained in the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A.[1] which after mergers is now known as the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). In 1940, he earned his M.A. from Princeton University and became an Instructor in New Testament. Two years later, he earned his Ph.D.("Studies in a Greek Gospel Lectionary (Greg. 303)"), also from Princeton." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_M._Metzger

Metzger became widely seen as an 'Apostate" by Christianity in later life. He simply mentioned and told what essentially all theologians are aware of, but rarely mention.

They have to make a living, too. Nothing worse than putting yourself out of work.

Anyway...

"Belonging to "Israel's FICTION, rather than to its history, and should be read among its tales and stories"; the book of Job is "religious FICTION" - How to read the bible, 1946, Edgar J. Goodspeed

"Edgar J. Goodspeed was born in Quincy, Illinois. He graduated from Denison University (where he also received a doctorate in Divinity, 1928) and the University of Chicago (Ph.D. 1898)."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edgar_J._Goodsp...

The bible is full of such "borrowings" or adaptations of older myth and legend from previous cultures. Sometimes, just modified passages or verses here and there, and at other times, almost an entire book.

Take the book of Daniel, for instance.

Except for being altered and manipulated heavily to fit within Judaic mythology and being "historicized". The book of "Daniel" is taken in large part, if not entirely from earlier Ugarit mythology. Dan'lil in Ugarit, if I recall correctly. It can be found. You just have to look for the information. Information that a large majority of theologians are aware of.

But, rarely revealed or mentioned.

Today's Prayer

Dear Lord, I have so many things going on in my life. Please help me to know which tasks are really important and what special projects or missions I should take on. Open my eyes that I may see what foundation the project is based on and remember the experiences you have demonstrated in my life that would help me to do the project well...or that would serve as a warning for me to stop and not get involved in a specific project. Help me to examine my motives, skills, qualities, and abilities related to accomplishing the task. And please guide me in every step, that I may choose your will and receive your blessings. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.

Prime time with God

HA !
And you claim to be tolerant.....
God is sovereign

Every afflicted Christian should bow to the absolute sovereignty of God and surrender to Him the right to do what He chooses to do, whenever He chooses to do it, in any way He chooses to do it, for any purpose He wants to accomplish, and to use any person He chooses.

My Father's way may twist and turn,
My heart may throb and ache,
But in my soul I'm glad I know
He maketh no mistake.

My cherished plans may go astray,
My hopes may fade away,
But still I'll trust my Lord to lead,
For He doth know the way.

Though night be dark and it may seem
That day will never break,
I'll pin my faith, my all in Him,
He maketh no mistake.

There's so much now I cannot see,
My eyesight's far too dim;
But come what may, I'll surely trust
And leave it all to Him.

For by and by the mist will lift
And plain it all He'll make;
Through all the way, though dark to me,
He made not one mistake.

(A. M. Overton)
