Thanks, me 2.
Miracles are events that aren't unexplainable, As time goes by they could be.
However, you're correct, that events are at times influenced by what our 5 senses don't comptehend.
But that doesn't indicate that christians are the only one who receive them.
For instance, I myself experienced one 2 years ago.
I have coronary disease and had it for some time.
I started to get a very rapid heartbeat, My daughter dialed 911 and an ambulance arrived. They tried to get the heart rate down but to no avail.
My heart rate was beating approx. 210 bpm.
I was transported to the ER and they have tried several attempts to knock it down.
Religious leaders showed up and I could see the doctors look's very grimm.
I, however, kept on cracking some jokes to ease the tension in the room.
Finally, after almost 3 hours of this event, my heart returned to its normal beat.
The doctors were relieved.
When they paid a visit to my room later they told me that it was genuinely a huge miracle that I pulled through considering my history of heart disease.
So far in the past 25 years or so I managed to escape the grim reaper 3 thrice. I suspect that the 4th time he'll win.
Now, was I a christian praying?
No, but I do attribute my survival to the Mesopotamian gods.
There's work for me to do and soon it will be accomplished.
Just rambling on, just like the other poster on here...LOL
I am glad that you pulled through! Am I the other poster? <smile>

This is not to address the battle in here. It is to address the battle in believers. One I have struggled with much to much. That is the battle of the flesh and spirit. Too often I have engaged in conversations and it start out in the right spirit. One of love, as Christ would have it be. As a person whose faith is in Jesus Christ there is a constant dieing out to self that goes on. A non-believer doesn't have that struggle. They are not bound by that. We are of our own choosing. As the conversation goes on they can say all that they want to insult us. With insulting being the intention. As can be seen on this forum with all of the name calling. In the flesh, all of the name calling gets to us. And we change from a conversation from love to a conversation from pride. You will not out smart me or out wit me. I have not read the exchanges you have been in so I can't comment on them or any comments you might have made, though I have read a few of your posts. When I stopped in here to read what was going on, I saw a bunch of hateful words. And what appeared to be high tensions. From the time I first started posting on this thread a few years ago, what you have been one of the most Biblicaly sound poster on here. So this post is not to condemn anything I have read. It is to encourage you to stay strong. It is Jesus who gives us victory and there is nothing any can say to defeat that. All the strikes against us are strikes in a battle that has already been won, by Jesus. From a song. When your up against a struggle that shatters all your dreams and your hopes have been cruely crushed by Satans manifested scheems and you feel the urge with in you to submit to earthly fears. Don't let the faith your standing in seem to disapear. Praise The Lord. He can work through those who praise him. Praise The Lord. For our God inhabits praise. Praise The Lord for the chains that seem to bind you serve only to remind you that they fall powerless behind you when you Praise Him, Praise him, Praise The Lord :) Be Blessed brother, For you are :)
Amen~

Indeed and all glory to God. We are nothing without Him. Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the cares of this world. One thing I like to think of is time. Our entire lives are but a brief blink of the eye, a vapor. Thinking about time man places a great value on what is important right now, this day, this second. What is really important and true is timeless. I know you understand and thanks for the word bro.
Amen~

I have no problems with Christians, as such. Some of them are good people.

I'm only bigoted against a-holes. Don't worry, I wouldn't stereotype you as one.

Only uneducated and ignorant Christians believe that anything other than a few of Paul's epistles are authored by any known person. The entire Bible (other than said epistles) are anonymous. Even John of Patmos'(Revelation) identity is unknown.
Yes.

All these writings were authored by different people with their own views and agenda. These writers were their own people who were saying what they wanted to say in the way they wanted to say it.

It's small wonder there are so many contradictions in the Bible.

Of course, that's fine - I see nothing wrong with those contradictions as it shows the Bible owes much to humanity rather than any imagined divinity.

So we don't have life until we've breathed?

Why then all the fuss about aborting a foetus? Seeing as they don't breath then (according to your scripture) they're not yet alive.

By the way - Job isn't a good book to be quoting scriptures from as it shows your god in a very bad light indeed.

<quoted text> I'm going to say that as the primary subject of the day on this thread, has been about the believers conveying a more congenial form of civil discourse toward those who do not believe, however, I don't believe it would be going over the line to ask you if you are really this foolish and without a clue, to post the garbage that you just did in the post that I am responding to?????.....does the devil really have THAT much of a hold on you to seriously ask me about "the other gods that came before OUR Lord".........are you truly THIS spiritually dysfunctional?
You are posting links of mythological Gods and comparing them to God/Christ like these myths are real, I'm sorry, but to me. this is really sick.

Isaiah 43:10-13
10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. 11 I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour. 12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God. 13 Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?
So what Scar said is true:

"Yet you'll ignore the man-gods that came before your man-god, and assert your man-god is the only real one."

BTW, there is no Devil either.

Hi Truths

I see you quote from Timothy.

Here's another one...

""I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, 10 but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.

11 A woman[a] should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;[b] she must be quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15 But women[c] will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety."

1 Timothy 2:9-15

So there you have it. Being faithful and believing in God isn't enough for women to be saved.

They also need to have babies.

Otherwise they're damned.

You can't, or shouldn't...to a point anyway.
However, when you find someone telling the crowd that they are wearing green shoes, when they are, in fact, wearing red shoes, and you have the facts and evidential proof and knowledge of it, it is in the best interest of all to make that actuality known...lest everyone be convinced that green is red...the misinformation would render our intersections impassible, and cause a multitude of injury, death, and misery(at the very least).
That requires judgement and action.
Thank GOD then that I am wearing black Adidas sandal/thongs...... I think!!
