<quoted text>Question: Would "always saying something "nice" Mean we can't tell anyone there is a hell??
I agree. This earth is far from perfect (but will be when our precious Lord Jesus comes for us), so, why do we have to have such perfection required of us?

Like those darn teeth whiteners - 5 years ago it wasn't important. Why do we have to have always new stuff? Does the old not work anymore? Brush your teeth.

And what's with all these guys shaving their heads and kids in pants around their knees?

That's about all the problems of the current society for me. Other than the complete lack of morality, the removal of bibles and the Lord's prayer in schools ...... I'll stop now.

Lots of stuff bout Judas

Raymond E. Brown gave the contradictory accounts of the death of Judas as an example of an obvious contradiction in the Bible texts: "Luke's account of the death of Judas in Acts 1:18 is scarcely reconcilable with Matt 27:3-10." This problem was one of the points that caused C. S. Lewis, for example, to reject the view "that every statement in Scripture must be historical truth". Various attempts at harmonization have been tried since ancient times,...

Hello TG.
I caused the problem.
Am I MikeB? Mike Huffman and I both have initials MikeH therefore I had to ask if I am MikeB.
Okay with me - I'll be MikeB.
I call you Mike B (short for bailout) hoping to avoid confusion with Mike Huffman.

Mike, have I told you just how much I admire you? Or how glad I am that you stayed and continue to post? You are God's treasure....don't forget that. And today you and Artgirl bring happy tears to my eyes.

I know you love everyone...which is why I love you. You are a true reflection of God's love.

Right now I am bawling my eyes out because I am so happy about Mike and Artgirl.....I knew God would do this even though it had to get rowdy for a time. We have to go through the river called tribulation to get to the promised land.

Hi Epiphany. Glad you got home safely.

I'll bet everyone was glad to see you. How're your dogs? Dogs are funny critters aren't they? They are created as to not be able to withhold any emotion toward those they love. Amazing. I'll bet they were thrilled when you walked in and I'll also bet after a little sniffing and getting rubbed, they lay down with satisfied smiles on their faces knowing all was well with their world again.

betray ...my bad
Ken (Hick up) I won't be as eloquent as OYE... I lost the post that asked what I thought about the betrayal of Judas....Since Judas was a thief, it didn't take much to turn himself over to Satans power...John 13:27 "As soon as Judas had taken the bread, Satan entered him"....
So I think it was meant to happen. Can you imagine being the most hated man in all history?But that was his lot in life...It was written many years before in the scriptures (Life and Death of Jesus)

Gods Love to you....

We know you're straight Lifelover. I'm sorry about the comment I made last night about Elton. I grew up on "Goodbye Yellow brick road".

I watched a documentary many years ago about him. What a spoiled, rotten brat! I mean, a tempermental baby, to say the least.

Did you realize he was a very promising classical singer? I watched him during a private concert once and when he was finished, some members of the audience were allowed to ask questions. A lady who knew his potential from many years before asked "Why did you give up real music?".

Hi Ham,
I 'got 'er done'.
Am I Mile H? If so, I replied to at least one post of yours last night.
But, what really bothered me was when I replied three days ago to a post you wrote about names of God and Jesus versus titles (trivia).
You haven't responded yet when I asked several questions.
I thought you were ignoring me.
Hi Mike B..

Sorry for the delay..Just got back from visiting my daughter..

Sorry if I goofed up.. It is so easy to do on Topix, I have discovered.. I can assure you I am not ignoring anyone.. I try my best to answer every post directed toward me.. Sometimes I goof..

I suspect this happens with everyone..

I will try to do better..

God is an awesome God..

It is ok to be gay. Gay means to be happy. It is only in the last few years that the meaning of this word has changed. Watch an old movie or tv program and this word is used in a different context. God bless.
You're right Chris. Most homosexuals refer to themselves as gay nowadays, though.

Personally, I think most gay men are just unable to hold a decent relationship with a woman. I've never given a second thought to the notion I might be gay. I think most gays and lesbians find easy sex and committmentless relationships - which is what they were looking for.

Oh, and to save my scrawny butt - JUST MY OPINION.

TG sees this too. I do not see us doing these things. How can there be a "top dog" ? God IS the top DOG and all here strive to share His word and His ways through the postings.
Each person here has GIFTS from God which they share and develop here to use in other parts of our lives. God gives each person an extra something in order to compliment the "extra something" gifts of each other....
A problem comes when satan injects a flesh serving desire into Gods mission for us all.

There was a lady in our church in Dallas who was a master hug-giver. We all knew who to go to if we needed a good hug. She had to have a special gift from God. She died several years ago and left such a big gap to so many of us. I think sometimes we don't appreciate those kinds of people till they are gone.
She wasn't an eloquent speaker and didn't have many visible talents, but she loved us and we knew it. That mattered more than a million gifts or talents to me. I miss Ms. Thelma so much.
That's who I want to be....Ms Thelma!!

Come here and give me a HUG.....

<quoted text>Once in awhile, I will hug a brother in Christ, I will say this though, if it is with another man, I'd rather it be in church as I would Wal Mart, and definetly facing me, not a sneek hug with my back to them. Growing up, our daddy wasn't a real affectionate man, he's hugged me the last ten years then he ever did the first forty, course I've only seen daddy cry twice, when his daddy died back in '76, and when mother died this past summer, in a way I'm kind of like that.
Hi Mike H..

Thanks for your post..

Hugging is a touchy (sorry for the pun) subject, especially for men.. I remember the days when I would be embarrassed.. Now, my life is so different.. Do you know I hug both my sons and they hug back.. I should have been as open when they were younger. But alas I was not..

I always felt hugging was associated with sexuality.. It took me years to discover it wasn't.. I know at Lynn's funeral so many people hugged me..some I hardly knew.. They provided tremendous comfort for me..One hug is worth a whole bunch of words...Sometimes words are more difficult than a hug..

Anyway, I am glad I am free.. I would like to hug Jesus.. Save me from being lost for words.. He would know that I loved Him..

Jesus spoke so much about planting and harvesting.
My dad is just beginning to do his spring planting. Every year he grows most all of the vegetables they eat. And this year he is adding more flowers and trees. I think he plans to put in two Magnolia trees in the front yard, plus dozens of gladiolas. I love to go watch the seedlings grow up.
Although this year my joy is mixed with the sadness of seeing him tire so easily. He digs a couple of holes, then rests, and on and on. He is 83 now and still going strong compared to others his age, but so obviously weaker to those who have known him.
Don't know why I am going on and on like this, but it struck a chord in me, you talking about plants.
Gee whiz ... LOL. I dig a couple of holes and rest too. LOL LOL LOL!
