Thank you for the reply (((((Scott))))))).
None of us likes to read negative posts regarding our Lord and Savior- However- it should be more offensive to us that THEY themselves don't know the LOVE and eternity that is offered, and that they will suffer. NOT that they insulted OUR senses by assaulting Gods word. The battle belongs to the Lord in saving souls~ we are told to not be the reason that people pull further out of His reach. When we reply with snark or a rude comment- then we are not behaving as He preached (c:
Can you see what I mean? I may not be able to word it right- but I mean no disrespect for you or the path you are on. What I am saying is scriptural --- and used in the context of iron sharpening iron.

((((((Mike))))))) Thank you for the post (c:
~*~God Believes In You~Ask Him~*~
The evidence of God, is in the
answering of prayers,prayed in FAITH or
OUT of a last ditch effort of a non believer.
Miracles~THAT no hands of humans have caused,
except hands folded together in prayer
to Jesus and OUR Father.
Proof~
that Non believers call miracles
and "signs" coincidence,
YET they are SEEKING and wishing God was real,
so that they too may experience coincidence of
good things coming together for THEMSELVES
~for their OWN peace of mind.
God is proved TRUE~
...when you are so negative you
can NOT stand your own selves, so we try FAITH
and ask for help~
...just in case~it's true.
"Coincidences" have A WHOLE new meaning~
as they become OUR VERY OWN answer to prayer.
Proof~
In THE JOY in a prepared heart that hears Loudly for
the first time,what they once hated and CURSED
as LIES.
Moving forward to the exuberance of a child of wonderment,
seeing for the VERY first TIME
all the Blessings we were bestowed with all along~
that we NEVER once gave thanks for.
HE still BELIEVES in YOU.
Not a single god has ever existed, all religions are fakes nothing else!

I have been reading Matthew 23 today- and Romans 12~ I NEEDED the REMINDERS after comming back into TOPIX the other day- I could feel the human urges to SLAP someone <blush> You have been here throughout these past monthst that I have not been- So I KNOW how it can wear on our hearts.

As a freshening of air through your mind and body brother~ Offered with LOVE in Christ.

Romans 12
New International Version (NIV)

A Living Sacrifice
12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Humble Service in the Body of Christ
3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

Love in Action
9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written:“It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Dear God, who created mankind in your image, you sure made a colorful world of people! As I stop and watch and reflect on the people I see, I notice how everyone is unique. Sometimes I'm frustrated by others' personalities and actions; other times I am blessed; still other times I am amused. The fact is, though we were made in your image, you gave us each a will of our own and instilled different gifts, personalities, and potential within us. How boring it would be if we were all just alike! The "spice" of life is made up of all those different people, with different ideas, and various contributions. Thank you for caring enough that we are not your puppets, but are unique individuals, each called to fill special places in your great plan for our lives. I pray that you will keep my eyes open, my mind alert, and my will in tune so that I will use all you have given me--gifts, personality, skills, desires--to the best of my ability, for the edification of the saints, reaching the lost, and glorifying you.

Just like those that don't ask it for help. That's what I call natural.

It would probably be a little less natural - maybe even supernatural - if you all got the same excellent Spirit Tool Kit.

You just can't get any traction with claims of being connected to a supernatural source when you don't do anything better because of it. Where's this power in the lives of those connected to it?

.. most Christian Fundamentalists have naive black and white thinking (false dichotomy)..

.. in a false dichotomy, only two choices are presented ..

1. Homosexuality is bad.
2. Homosexuality is good.

.. for some believers, there are no other options ..

.. you can apply this fallacy to many religious arguments when only two arguments are presented ..

1. The bible contains moral laws.
2. If you do not follow the bible, you are immoral.

???~~grinning~~~, that is quite amusing that you think because I say your decisions always comes back to you or to provide specifics I'm being defensive. That is not a defensive posture, it's simply a life application or basis for discussion. Some accounts in the bible such as places people and events can be historically verified. I asked you to be specific because there is a plausible explanation for every so called contradictions or errors you claim. If you can see hell, then why would you need faith. I find myself repeating this so many times on this billboard, so let me post the verses again...

[QUOTE who="boooots"]<qu oted text>
trifecta1, why be so defensive? I don't know, off the top of my head, what books were added later and what books were taken out later. I learned that stuff (some of it) years ago, and today it is of no
The things I know (or don't know) about God and the Bible are based on material facts, or lack of them, whereas the things you know and believe about God are based on belief, because currently there are no facts, that can be verified.
The bottom line, trifecta1, is that billions in the world believe there is a god, or gods (in some cases), but not one person in the world can present material evidence or even evidence (such as with gravity) which is not material but evidence that is material, will prove what one can't see. We can't see gravity or the actual wind, but we can easily see how they affect material things.
If the books were God inspired, then why would there be books that contradicted other books, yet believers believe each book is God's truth? No I can't give you books and chapters now, but that argument with evidence has been presented so many times that it is not hard to find. Because it is of no importance to me, I do not remember specifics.
The best "evidence" that I have heard believers give for God is that 'you will see when you die', which is not evidence but a threat that if you don't start believing now, something very horrible will happen to you. Yet there is not one single human being has ever proved that hell exists (other than hell of their own making, or the making of those who controlled their lives, while they were living).
What you believe happened is simply what you believed happened (as you said to me) if you can't show another human being evidence that will irrefutably prove what you say, and I know that currently you cannot do that. You could be right and you could be wrong, but neither you nor I today can find evidence to show that.
I cannot show you evidence that God doesn't exist, because as mentioned in the various threads I have been on here, thousands of times, evidence of nothing is impossible.
Hebrews 11:6
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who
earnestly seek him.

Mark 11:22
"Have faith in God," Jesus answered.
Mark 4:40
He said to his disciples, "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?"
[[[
You keep asking for evidence of the Spiritual, But to God Faith in the spiritual is what is vital.

Your request, is in direct contradiction, to what YHWH God requires.

Hell is spiritual, it's not physical. Your soul is spiritual, and hell suffering is spiritual. And it's only evident after you die. But then it's too late.

So, you're in a rather unenviable position writer. Have no faith in the Spiritual because you can't see the evidence of it, and when you do have evidence of it, it's after your body dies and your soul rises in judgement to the Almighty for the rejection of Yeshua Jesus Christ. Then you will have the evidence of hell, but too late.

Or be at peace in this life, and in this body, and believe it's all myth. The question to you is, can you live your life, believing the judgement of hell for rejecting Jesus Christ, is a myth?

IMO, just based on your arguments on this billboard, you ain't doing a good job of that [so far].

Don't sleep on satin sheets while wearing a satin nightgown...or you will end up under the bed. You will then wish that you had a light under your bed...it is dark under there.
