<quoted text>MY point about Detroit was more to say there is more to it than just the bad reputation it has with some people
There are some cool things in the city and some cool people. There are a lot of historical landmarks and there is still the zoo and the science center and people that have stayed in the city because they love it
But at the same time people have to be realistic about it.
And with Detroit, there is always next year. That is pretty much their slogan!
Well, gotta get some ZZZ's
(T) Peace
Hope you slept well...

I have this thread on my toolbar so when I log on it always takes me to the same spot from over a year ago. The post that comes up varies depending on how many of Trollie/Trollette's posts have been deleted. Today when I logged on...it took me here...

http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...

These are the types of conversations that I came here for...not who is or is not "right" or "wrong"...but for conversations seen from different perspectives...conversations that make me think...rationalize...consider a different view point. I read a few posts...I see the "Mustard Seed" differently...

I tried posting on the "Atheism is a something or another"...yesterday I decided it too is just a place for people to denigrate others...on both sides.

Anyway...Hoping that you and all others...regardless of how this holiday is celebrated...a Very Merry Christmas.

That's it. They're the original LOL! Plus a few cockatoos, galahs, rosellas and possums.
No fruit bats though; I once met some American tourists who were really freaked out by them.:-) They're cute and harmless though, apart from keeping you awake with that loud screeching @ night.

Hey Rosa.....

I actually think Bats are cute....I don't want to pet them though....One time one came down my chimney and came out a hole in the basement...I walked down to do some wash and something "swooped" over my head....LOL....I opened the side door and the bat finally flew out the door....My sons thought that was pretty cool

Goodbye.....
Have a great day....Except Karl....Hope his day is miserable
((*L*))
LOL No you don't!

BEHAVE!

Would be better to hope that he finds the peace that will fill his day with happiness!

LOL

Don't take Karl personally...he likes me but doesn't respect me...

I would prefer that he respects me despite our differences...but oh well...I will carry on...

Wow. That's nothing like what I walked into a year ago, in WINLAC anyway.

By the time I came here it was just arguments peppered with platitudes.

@Trollie/Trollette/Whichever you happen to be today...

I haven't forgotten about your exercise class...I just want to do my morning stretches first.

I will be back later...in the meantime...warmup a little...you should never exercise without first warming up...I am bad about that...I am trying to do better.

Oh...and wear proper clothing this time...try spandex...it will allow you to move freely...

I was just kiddin....(kind of)....I think he is the kind that the more you disrespect him...the more he like it...He doesn't like "niceness".....He thinks people are weak if they are nice...Just my opinion....I may be wrong...He might be the nicest guy you'd ever want to meet off of Topix....

Yea...I know. I am trying however to find my "zen" for the new year.

Yesterday I started learning Tai Chi. Ya gotta be in the right frame of mind for that.

Yesterday I learned the warm-up...today I am learning...the "Wild Horse Running" move...I think that's what its called! I'll have to check.

I think maybe Karl could use a little "zen"! LOL

Oh...that conversation was held probably while someone else was calling me demoniac or daughter of satan! LOL

I just won't get in to any long drawn out arguments again. I did once a couple of years ago...no one "won"...both sides...IMO...lost. It was not worth the time out of my life.

Luci...I don't know what happened on Facebook...or what transpired between you and those that at one time you call "friend". I don't really want to know. I just think you have to determine if it is worth it to you to hold the animosity.

For me...it never is...I guess I have learned that over the years...I only want peace in my life.

I like a good conversation...discussing differences...other view points. That is hard to find in a medium such as Topix.

There was a time that you and I had major differences...our exchanges were not alway pleasant. We seem to have found a way to move past them...for that I am grateful.

My best advice...for what little it is worth...state your opinion...speak what is on your mind...don't worry if others agree or not...be friends with whom you choose.

Not trying to interfere...just would like to see you happier...not worrying what others think. They will get over it...at least you and I did.

I hope that you and your boys have a great holiday...no matter how you celebrate it...or even if you don't.

I was carting home a load with manly pride,
When my feet began to stutter and I fell into the gutter,
And a pig came up and lay down by my side.
Then I lay there in the gutter and my heart was all a-flutter,
Till a lady, passing by, did chance to say:
"You can tell a man who boozes by the company he chooses,"
And the pig got up and slowly walked away..."

Okay Trollie/Trollette....

Sit up tall in your chair...feet flat on the floor...no slumping...

Today we are going to start with your leg marches...1 set of 10

Now that you have completed your first set...on to leg extensions...

If you are able raise your right leg slightly...extend your leg straight out in front...if you can't get it straight...extend it as high as possible...

Repeat for 10 times with the right leg then do the same for the left.

Okay...back to the leg marches...do another set of 10 (10 on each leg T/T...(no cheating)...make sure that you are sitting up straight (no slumping).

Once you complete your leg marches...go straight back in to the leg extensions (doing 10 on each side).

You have now completed your work out for today.

As a reminder...always check with your doctor...I am not a trained medical person...I take no responsibility if you get your legs tied in knots behind your head.

Your tip for the day...practice breathing...inhale...letting your shoulders rise up close to your ears...exhale...releasing your shoulders to a relaxed position. This will help you release all the toxins from your body...you might have to do this a lot...before you clean yourself out.

If you get rid of all those toxins...maybe you won't fart so much.

Have a great day Trollie/Trollete/Whichever you are today!

Today's Prayer
Father, Christmas is the season that brings people to focus on Christ. Please anoint me and guide me to a special opportunity to share Christ with someone this Christmas. Give me boldness and peace; the right words, the right actions. Speak through me; minister through me to someone who needs to know you. May I be a part of your touch in someone's life. To the glory of Jesus and in his name, Amen.

<quoted text>You are playing word games again. I didn't ask if you believe it. I asked if you believe anything Jesus taught applies to you. You said most of what He taught was only for the Jews. So what were the other parts that apply to everyone and where does it say anywhere in the Bible that Gentiles don't have to follow the teachings of Jesus?
He not only said He would send the Holy Spirit to remind us of what He taught but He told His disciples to baptize all nations and make sure they obey all he taught. And even Paul says we must obey the gospel of Christ. Not just believe but obey. And told the Romans that we avoided severity and on us fell goodness and we must remain in that goodness otherwise we also will be cut off. Christ says we remain in Him by obeying what he taught and said twice that one must obey the commandments to be saved.
So if you believe that, why don't you think it applies to you? What verses tell you that? How many times are you gonna avoid answering? I would think something as important as the Gentiles not having to obey Christ would be something you would want to show people. If you are correct and I have it wrong then the Christian thing would be to correct me using scripture. Not your personal beliefs but where in the Bible you found out Christ's teachings don't apply to us.
It still wouldn't explain the verses by Paul that tell us we can also be cut off or not to receive grace in vain or that we are saved only IF we keep in memory what we were taught or that we must finish the race or that if we endure God will endure with us but if we disown Him that He will disown us. But at least it would explain why Christians don't have to obey the teachings of Jesus like He told us.
You know exactly what you are being asked. Yet you avoid and avoid and avoid. Why? If you believe what you claim then show where specifically in the Bible you learned it
skom - "...that we avoided severity and on us fell goodness and we must remain in that goodness"

i got news for you pal - THERE IS NO 'GOODNESS' OUTSIDE OF GOD'S GOODNESS!!!

"why call Me "good"? there is none good but God" Jesus
