Today's Prayer
God, please build your nature in me, so that I will love other people the way you want me to. Prepare me so that I respond in righteousness when attacks come from those who would mistreat me or act under an unholy power. Help me to be a vessel of honor to you and a light in the darkness. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for protecting me. Thank you for being you.
Prime time with God

But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

Maher cited a figure of 90% on this weeks show. I commented to my wife at the time that that is a sure sign that democracy in America is dead or dying. Sure, the voters are still allowed to decide trivial issues. But they are ignored in the matters that concern big money, such as foreign policy and gun law.

I used to ask the question: how do you know when your country is no longer a democracy? Nobody sends out a memo, and the fact doesn't make the news, so how do you know.

I then used the device of imagining an extraterrestrial coming to earth with the assignment of determining which nations if any were democracies. How would it do it? There is only one way: compare the will of the people and the law. If there is a match everywhere that one is expected, then you have a democracy [We wouldn't expect a perfect match, since the majority's will would not be law or policy if that opinion violated the Constitution, or if it was a young idea that hadn't been around long enough to become law].

The American federal government doesn't care what its citizens think.

The devil? GTFU. Do you really believe in Satan? I don't.

I have been accused of being Satan's puppet before, and even of being Satan himself. If you believe that, then you also believe that Satan is aware of this conversation, and is in fact its author, with me being his puppet, right?

So what do you make of this thought that just popped into my mind (and you know it did or I wouldn't be able to type it):

"You are mine, sow. You have been discarded by your god and given to me. I will have you in hell"?

What was that? To us unbelievers, its just a smart ass skeptic playing with a believer - you - and trying to terrify you with your own superstitions. That's what I think it is. I that think I just made those words up myself and don't pretend otherwise.
But what about you? What do you believe? If there really is a Satan, and I'm him or his puppet, what just happened here?
Is there any possibility that Satan didn't just speak to you through me? Or does Satan only control me when you want to insult me, but not when it would terrify you?

I don't know, IANS, it did sound quite a bit like Satan's voice to me.:):):)
LOL.

I love to use the Christian's own garbage against them. If they want to terrify me with talk of Satan, I am happy to return the favor. And I have an advantage: they believe Satan exists and is interested and active in our world.

What's a Christian to think about the above? You and I know that the words were mine, but the Christian pretty much has to deny the existence of Satan not to be scared shitless - precisely the condition they need to be in to be properly colonoscoped with their own weapons.

Good Morning Neighbors

I've not even peeked in here since April 8th and so much has happened since then. I do HOPE you all took time to contemplate the world around us and those less fortunate.

There is much suffering going on and I would imagine if we have time to enjoy ourselves online, we are more blessed than many others may be.

NEIGHBOR - that's includes everyone.:)

Sure, you can communicate with them without strife. Just don't challenge their sacred beliefs when they tell you how wonderful faith in Jesus is.
However, if you disagree and comment that faith isn't a virtue, that their bible isn't written by a god nor a source of wisdom, that their god is myth, that their religion is false, or that their church is a societal burden, prepare to be personally assaulted for daring to do so.
Remember: when a Christian expresses an opinion on these matters, it is a beautiful and holy thing, and you should respect it, but if you express any other opinion, you are a God hater, a bigot, and a Christian basher infected with demons. Their bible teaches that we are vile abomination - the moral equivalent of murderers and whoremongers, and they will let you know that. Those are their rules.
Good Morning,

The first thing I did after I posted was drop an interesting icon on all of your posts. We come into these forums and threads to debate and all should be allowed to speak their opinions and without being harassed for doing so. I appreciate how frank you are and how effective your speech comes across.

There are serious issues where GOD and beliefs are concerned and have been since the beginning of time. I agree that all too often someone will claim to be a Christian, but they couldn't be convicted of it in a court of law since there is little evidence to that in there example in everyday living.

To make any debate worth participating in you need an opposing view just as you do the more agreeable ones. I really am dismayed to witness Christians when they resemble judgemental heathens,... or worse. It turns off 'Babes in Christ' quicker than anything ever could. With all the suffering in the world it's already a challenge for many to believe OUR God is all loving.

Hope your morning is going well.:)

Do you blame the Christians at all for that? What part if any do they play in that?
I failed to mention I dropped an agree on yours that I replied to and now I'm sorry I didn't read it all and drop more agrees on your posts. Here is another one I fully appreciate. YES, the Christians are to blame if anyone is. Not all of them, I don't generalize anything, but a good number of them.

If we are familiar with the Bible and not just what the preacherman shares with us at any given church, then we know Revelations and how many of them churches, included in those chapters and verses, are nearly a failure.

Thanks for that word. May I please call you IANS?

Good Morning
I just love how you enter the room on the occasions I've visited. This is what a Christian resembles ... on a good day.

Please accept that without misunderstanding ... We all have our days when it's not as easy to display beauty and love to others.

That was a Brilliant statement from Good to ... Day!
Thank You and may I please call you E2? Funny, isn't it how we are sometimes (more than not) in such a hurry?

Our LORD told us to REST when possible. I love to rest while sharing the WORD with like minded Followers of Jesus and even those that do not believe. That is the way it was meant to be after all.:)

I had to come and say Hello to you before I went and said a few more things to IANs about those other statements. That poster is very intelligent and stimulating, don't you agree? ;~)

You know how much writings I scroll by, especially the ones by that joker [it aint necessarily so]? because most of his writings are trivial and pointless long lunatic rants.
I scroll by many others writers on here as well. Sometime they write something I want to respond to. But I see many writers that writer opinions and beliefs that I think are pointless and irrelevant and sometimes I say it. People scroll by my writings to because they think what I have to say or what I believe is pointless and irrelevant. That OK. pick choose and refuse. We all can do that and we all do that.

I also want to note the difference in your reaction to misunderstanding a post, and the Dunce's. Both of you thought you read something that was not intended, and both became a little miffed. Both became personal about it - you went to Alzheimer's, he to many other places. And I pointed out the error to you both.

You realized that you had made an error and apologized. He just plodded on in the same direction. You and I have a real chance at being friendly because of your intelligent and effective choice, whereas unless he rectifies matters soon, the Dunce and I have very little chance of that. The difference is his character flaws (the inability to admit error, his willingness to use abusive language and make false accusations) and poor judgment.

It's a good life lesson for everybody that needs to learn it: in most cases, life is easier if you admit your errors. Fighting the fight that the Dunce has spoiled for is a double loser. It will be for all of us. The thread will be worse off for the animosity, I'll be worse off - I would also rather be friendly with a contrite G_O_D than jousting with the Dunce - and of course he will be worse off in a variety of ways, just like the Dimwit, who made the same bad decision before you arrived.

What a waste.

But good show on your part!

GQQd Morning Adam, I can't help wonder if that is your REAL name.
I wish you peace and LQVe this morning and I have to tell you that I LOVE IT when others put the WORD out here as you have. Not necessarily the word that comes from their own thinking, but that of JESUS. He never claimed to be a good man, nor master ... or did He? JESUS was either everything He claimed or He IS a blatant LIAR and CraZy Man!
For that matter He is DEAD and that BLOOD meant nothing. What do you believe exactly? Guess I could go back 1000 pages or so and find out, but time is running out I FEAR and I HOPE you do too.

You know that came from OUR LORD and SAVIOR, right? Sweetie,(if I may) I pray that you are young ... because I believe you are on your way. Please be willing to be guided ever so much, as we all should desire to learn something new everyday and this young man, is a very serious discussion about .... LIFE OR DEATH.

Please be a bit more patient in dealing with others (US 2), as it will make your journey in life more agreeable even when you disagree. Know what I'm saying? I hope you won't mind I offered that opinion and a little advice for gQQd measure.

I'd be happy if You'd call me TC - as those are letters in my real name. Thanks and I really hope you have a wonderful day and remember, Please Remember,... someone that is suffering today and try a little more tenderness when at all possible.:)
