John
John and his brother James sons of Zabedee were in Jesus inner circle. The fourth gospel three epistles and the Book of Revelation are attributed to John.
And all those attributions are wrong.

Hahahaha Some would think that. But I have no problem agreeing with you :) And I have no problem disagreeing with you :) If someone has a problem with that, well, they have a problem. I don't :) Something I find interesting is that Saul probably couldn't stand someone like Paul. That is until the Damascus road experience :)
Hopefully the insurance comes through for you. It just isn't right for these companies to have this kind of power.
A true teacher is like a true preacher. It's not a profession. It's who they are. You will always teach. It's who you are even if you never stepped a foot in a class room or someone takes you out of one.
Have a good night G :) Rest Well :)
Agreed on all counts and the same back to you.
Thanks.

I know we are forbidden to talk about Icons....But I see you have 6 negative ones already...Yesterday morning I had 12 negative ones on each one.....
SOMEONE doesn't want us to talk.....Hmmmmmm
I can't believe you are still giving the icons credence!!
- yikes.. On your part.

Who said you were ever forbidden to talk about the icons?
As a friend, I simply asked you to ignore them.. Because I , truthfully, thought
You were more secure than you seem to be regarding them..

You feel that the person clicking the icons has any influence over who speaks up here??
I am saddened to see this hint of shallowness in you,

Great! So do I, and apparently several others posting here.
What matters to the taxpayer subsidizing them as a charity is the magnitude of the largesse relative to the size of the tax break, and to whom they are willing to give.
What matters in deciding if they are principally a charitable organization or are just hoping to be perceived as one is the relative amount given to the needy compared to total receipts, especially the needy outside of their church.
Have you heard about the two billion dollar mall that the Mormons just built? It was covered in Bloomberg Busineesweek under Companies and Industries. You can read the article at http://www.businessweek.com/printer/articles/... to get a better sense of the vastness of their business empire.
That's odd for a charity, wouldn't you agree?
<quoted text>
It wasn't my figure or my calculation.
I disagree with much spending when people are starving, so would agree here.

The Temples were always quite plain, and simple, but for some reason, there has been a change in that direction.

You talk on he WWW.. Your distaste for homosexuality..
Your very character cries thAt you are anti homosexuality - you believe -. it's because it is what Christ commands of you..
Yet- you have told this thread- yourself and your wife "were" homosexuals at one time..
I believe your fear of this world and hunger to leave it for streets of gold- are because you are ashamed-
You were born gay..
And so was your wife.
- yet- you claim you feel Christ in your heart.. None the less.
. I feel I was born hetrosexual.. And Christian. Do not believe I choose either..
You are stuck between two worlds....a homosexual can be a Christian..
- many are...
Yet- you cause trouble for those who want to come out of the closet.,
And my wish to you and your wife would be --to live and let live,
Honestly, stfu. Regarding "sins" Chris.
You support Hitler's mentality, whether you chose to believe so, or not.
I have seen nothing in Chris' posts that indicate in any way that he is stuck between two worlds. Isn't your trying to force your view of him upon him, the same thing others judge him for doing? And stfu regarding sins? And comparing him to Hitler? Born Christian? WOW I have read others comments to you about you. Your own words speak for you quite well.

I'm not sure that you have a proper grasp of what reason is. What you cited would be sound reasoning. You implied as much yourself with the use of the phrase "of course."
Of course, I didn't argue that.
<quoted text>
Humanists.
All moral progress has come from rational ethics - the application of reason and compassion to ethical problems. One of its recent gifts was gay unions.
And all intellectual progress has come from rational skepticism - the application of reason to evidence. One of its recent gifts was the Internet.
What has Christianity (or any other ideology) contributed to ethics or real knowledge in say the last millennium or so? Humanism and rational skepticism gave you science and liberty.
I gather you are suggesting that scientists are all non believers and have been for the last millennium or so?
