Typical deceitful cop out.

So you would falsely accuse him to his face, well, over the Internet, and that makes it "right" in your warped mind?

The Two Wolves Within
An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice...
"Let me tell you a story. I too, at times, have felt great hate for those who have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It's like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die."
"I have struggled with these feelings many times. It is as if there are two wolves inside me; one is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way.
But...the other wolf... ah! The littlest thing will send him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all of the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger, for his anger will change nothing."
"Sometimes it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit."
The boy looked intently into his Grandfather's eyes and asked, "Which one wins, Grandfather?"
The Grandfather smiled and quietly said, "The one I feed."

I have read that story many times.

I think...maybe...will have to think about it...

At times I wonder...can at times the wolves look so similar that you fail to recognize them...they begin to look alike...can not tell them apart?

I read this somewhere...

We all have many facets as to who we are...many different sides to our beings...

When we try to deny one of those facets...we become out of balance. The key to keeping them in balance is to acknowledge them...let each have their space...because they all have a purpose.

It is up to us which facet of ourselves that we show on a daily basis.

I am not sure that I made sense...maybe you will get it.

We all have that "wolf" that rears its ugly head...do you think it is possible to starve it to death...or should we just control his feeding times?

The dog and wolf are the same species. The difference is one of breading and training. It is much easier for a dog to become wild again than for a wolf to become domesticated.
It seems we humans aren't much different.

Yes it makes sense Annie. You always express yourself well in what you write..
That is a good question, to feed it or not.
I think controlling its feeding time is the best we can do here in this life. Those of good heart and mind learn great lessons just after it is fed. Perhaps if he was starved to death, we would achieve perfection? I don’t think we can achieve that, here in this life, we would stop learning wouldn't we?

<quoted text> believe it goes a little deeper than which texts are inspired and which are not. When it came to gnosticism... and I already understand that there was Jewish and pagan gnosticism before there was Christian gnosticism... but when it comes to Christian gnosis... to say that the Hebrew God of the Old Testament was actually a lesser god, that there are gods and goddesses above Him and that the God of the Old Testament was the devil (the demiurge)... it is a given that it is a heresy. Simon Magus, the sorcerer, is in some cases thought to be the father of Christian gnosticism as he mixed platoism, sorcery and christianity into one belief. That's the basis of why many of the gnostics texts were thrown out. Some will say that there are gnostic books still in the Bible but John and Paul was always coming against them.
Anyways, I said too much... but just like you don't put stock into what is written in the scriptures... I don't put stock into Tabor. When did you first hear of him?
So you don't know where "God" stated which texts are of "His inspiration" and which are not.

I understand, I can't find anything either, thus the answer to this mystery is that only men made this decision.

Why do you believe fallible men did this? You know chose for you, what you are to believe?

<quoted text> Again, your mental position is a fallacy.
A fallacy is an argument that uses poor reasoning. An argument can be fallacious whether or not its conclusion is true. A fallacy can be either formal or informal.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacy
If your opinion, of my position "is a fallacy", how is it that your position is not?

You've yet to provide any academic support for your conclusion or my stance is incorrect.

How 'bout you start with doing that, instead of some opinion of the already interpreted texts?

Facts:
- "God" cannot be proven to exist or not
- no god has ever been proven to exist or not
- if there was a "God", no where in any known text has "God" stated which texts are of "His inspiration" and which are not - only men have done this.
- The Bible was written by fallible me. "ALL men fall short of the glory of God." Even the men who wrote the Bible
- the Bible only uses less than half of the original Apostles.
- The Bible uses more of "Paul's gospel" than of Jesus.
- Christianity uses only a portion of what Jesus taught.

These are just some of the facts....

What about your facts to support your conclusion. Please present them.

How is it that you know the inner workings of "God" - or in truth and honesty - you are just making a speculation upon "His" characteristics.

No, actually you can answer my questions, you just refuse to do so, because those questions cause your belief to be null.

That sir, is avoidance and diversion. Why are you afraid to face the facts of your belief? Do you like living in a man-made world?

And if you believe God possess all of those qualities, then you would not find it so hard to figure out that God's Will influenced mankind praying about such issues to not put books in the canon God did not want in the canon.

Why does "God" allow children to freeze to death on Christmas Day?
http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/archive/NAT...

Sounds to me, your logic failed in all regards. Unless you now agree that either:

"God" knew about this child and chose not to rescue her.
--OR--
"God" didn't know about the little girl, thus he is not omnipresent or omniscient.
--OR--
"God" has not control over the actions of this world.

I could believe it, the way dogs howl. The most wolf-like species are the Siberian Huskies.

The only difference is that dogs came to our ancestors' campfires millennia ago. Then they transferred that devotion to a human pack leader, if well trained.

It's an interesting subject Deb -- so to read just one horoscope is o;k and can viewed as a msg sent from God but not to read them everyday and see how your life revolves around them -- then that would be wrong ?
I'm really smiling here -- no animosity Sister -- just shaking head at the concept --

I understand what you are saying- The bible says to stay away from sorcery and such things. I don't believe the 'horoscopes' are accurate and from a real sorcerer- But I still believe that God can make them accurate to someones day. I don't seek them out and read them each day- or plan my day around secret messages from the cosmos- I simply recognise God winks.
I also watch and LOVE the Wizard of Oz series of books and movie...and have watched Harry Potter movies- though many Christians say it is not right due to Baum being anti God and that the author of Harry writing about sorcery. It's called fantasy (((((Judy))))))- Just recreation...much like FB games, a game of cards or monopoly..... or dancing or rock music.... or 24- I like Santa- and celebrating Valentines day and even the Easter bunny decorations- even though THEY are of the world.
I don't worship anything but God- and nothing comes before Him in my life.
God has blessed me with so very much- and I keep my eye on His version and His promptings to keep me on His path.
Whew-
I hope this helps put your heart at ease- and the subject to rest.
