Hi Annie..
Back again..Just got home from my Bible Study..Everything went well..I can hardly wait for the Rapture....
Gonna hit the hay..It has been a very long day for me..
If the Holy Spirit awakens me I Will head out to your bench..I am beginning to appreciate the quiet and stillness more and more..That is when I feel God presence the most.. "Be still." Not very appealing to fleshy folks but maybe some day it will..
Hope you are feeling better..

Hi Annie..

Darn if it isn't three o'clock in the morning..The HS is being true to form as He always is.. I can hardly believe it..But it is true..

Back at your bench again..A beautiful moonlit night..Everything is so still..The sounds of silence are everywhere..Man, I sure can let go and allow my imagination and fantasies to run wild..This is when I am the most creative and free..Free from the bondage of reality..I can see why Cinderella, Snow White and Dorothy were so interesting and charming..Little Red Riding Hood would be there with them as well.. They all had a yearning to escape from their boxes..To see the world, so to speak..

Where will I go..That is the question..What is it that I want to experience before I am called home..The Rapture can come at any moment..Like a thief in the night... Is there anything for me to experience before that happens..The sixty four thousand dollar question..I must allow my imagination to have the freedom it deserves...

I am leaning towards the green, green, grass of home..To recapture and experience those wonderful, innocent days of childhood..When a mother's hug meant something to me..When sitting on a hillside with Regina, my first real love, munching on tea berry leaves..I could feel the warmth of her body even without touching..Of course, I was only ten or so, but I have never really repeated that experience..The joys of childhood..Those wonder days of exploring ourselves..

Maybe this goal is simply the babbling of a lonely ole man who is waiting to be taken home..I dunno.. Funny I would wish to recapture so much of the past..There will be no time in Heaven..No memories to ponder over..Better do it now, while I still can..

Well my squirrel is looking at me sorta funny..so I better go on home to my precious little Boo and cuddle up with him for the rest of the darkness..Dawn will come soon enuf..

Today's Prayer

Dear God, If you be for me, who can be against me? You spared not your own Son, but delivered him up for me, for us all. How shall you not with him also freely give me all things?(Romans 8:31-32). The things you give are nothing like the things of the world. While the things of the world may entice and look pretty, they are temporary and cannot give true and lasting fulfillment. The things of the spirit are eternal and bring meaningful and lasting fulfillment. Thank you for your many, many blessings. Thank you for my family both biological and adoptive through the church of the living Christ. Thank you for your encouraging touches and miracles in the midst of pain and suffering. Thank you for teaching me through life's circumstances and for giving me strength to endure and peace for the journey. Thank you for all things, for every need you meet, and for Jesus Christ in whose name I pray. Amen.

<quoted text>G, I was just repeating your posting to me when I said we learn from Epi's postings..... I think you have written what you teach ~ your experiences! Sorry I disappointed you, but you have really been dishing out to Christians lately and now you have said that GOD and satan are basically the same..... I sort of think they are pathetic postings, myself.
I don't believe in Satan. I don't believe in Christianity.

What part of that are you having difficulty with ?

According to Leviticus, the Atonement was made as soon as Caiaphas handed Jesus over to Pilate.

No need for death or resurrection of Jesus to make the Atonement.

I'm not forcing you to do anything, I'm voicing my opinions.
To say that you wish for everyone to be in peace with each other and be happy, but then to vote against their rights, is extremely hypocritical.
What is loving about taking away people's rights?
Thanks for your response Lacez.....

In this life....NOT everyone will be able to live in Peace or be Happy.....

<quoted text>
You have your nerve.
I feel free to use language to describe Christians that is at least as strong as your bible uses to describe unbelievers, which includes the words and phrases like fool, vile, corrupt, wicked, dark, liar, the moral equivalent of murderers and whoremongers. Your beautiful book also implies that not one of us is any good . not even one - and that it is appropriate to throw us into fire while still conscious.
As for blasphemy, tell your pathetic god to stick his problem with unbelievers up his vile, corrupt ass.
You want respect for your religion, huh? How is that possible given what it says about the people you want respect from?
<quoted text>
Our problem with you is about the same. Deal with it, just like we have.
Do you really think that we should treat your god with more respect than you treat gays and atheists? I don't.
==========
And I encourage others to think about why they do if they do. Christian homophobia and atheophobia should be matched with equally uninhibited judgments about your religion and your god. Why not? Just saying that the Christian god is a mythical character is blasphemous and offensive to most of them, so you hardly need to worry about doing that. You will.
Amen.

No, it is a choice other people make for minorities, it seems.
If you're so pro-choice, why don't you vote to allow abortions, allow legal marijuana, allow marriage equality?
If you believe everyone has a choice, why do you believe you have the choice to choose for another and deny them a choice?

Like choosing not to have cancer, not to be murdered, not to starve to death, not to be raped, ad infinitum.

Yup, If one isn't living in Peace and Happiness it's their own fault.

I'm new to this thread so there's no way I'm going to plough through all the posts.
However, I do know that based on one of your posts, I took you for a Christian. You responded by saying you're not a Christian and I apologised to you.
For your sake, I hope you're telling the truth and not lying to me.
For my sake ...that's funny.

There is nothing you can do to me that could cause me more grief than the grief I already know.

So why would I lie?

But to be clear, I responded by saying, "you'd have to ask a Christian" ...and you apologised.

Are we clear now?

Can you use a search engine such as Google?
So google hick-up,topix.

When I came here I was as fundicized as the worst of them. But you'll soon notice a progression of change. My views have changed. There are many intelligent posters to be found in the halls of Topix. I prefer to seek them out, hear their views, compare them with my own, re-evaluate, and perhaps come to a new conclusion. I prefer to evolve ...nuthing remains the same, change cannot be stopped ...and I ain't no ol stick in the mud.

I don't accept the Bible as it is written just because that's what I've been taught. I prefer to think for myself, draw my own conclusions, revel in my accomplishments-take my medicine when I'm wrong.

But make no mistake, I do believe in a higher power. But do I believe the Christmas story ...I'll let you know when I'm settled.

Hello HL. I really couldn't say what happened. Years ago I used to think that anger and hate was caused by pain. I have gone through some prety trying years and somewhere along the way I forgot that. Today while at work I remembered. I used to be able to look past the hateful speach and see the need for love and understanding, compassion. I thought about how in some ways, I lost who I was. No matter how hard I might try, I can not make anyone anything. But, I remembered today why it is important to look past the hate to the hurt. I can't make the world love. But, I can love those in the world. And maybe, if someone, would love through the hurt, maybe the world would be a better place. Yes, I do believe Jesus did that. But, I also believe that we should follow his example. They/ we crucified him and he said forgive them father for they know not what they do. I don't know your beliefs in regards to God. But the example is a good one. Love them, even if they hate. It might not be easy. But I believe it is what the world needs.
I agree Bernie....Did you see how Kait responded to HFN's post.....Hurt people.....Hurt other people....All HFN did was show her heart and Kait saw it....

It was Jesus through HFN....

Good job HFN
