<quoted text>Do you not believe that you will live again after death? That is reincarnation, whether you want to admit it or not. You just believe that you only reincarnate one time and you go to a place where the streets are paved with gold and everything is covered in jewels and that you get to worship your god forever without having any memory of anything bad.
So, don't go off on me or anyone else for say IF there is anything just, you will live this same life over and over till you get it right. That would be the ONLY just way to treat people if they are going to live again whether once or thousands of times.
And many people who are much more aware and smarter than you. disagree with you wholeheartedly on reincarnation:
"As long as you are not aware of the continual law of Die and Be Again, you are merely a vague guest on a dark Earth." —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
"I did not begin when I was born, nor when I was conceived. I have been growing, developing, through incalculable myriads of millenniums. All my previous selves have their voices, echoes, promptings in me. Oh, incalculable times again shall I be born." —Jack London, The Star Rover
"Live so that thou mayest desire to live again - that is thy duty - for in any case thou wilt live again!" —Freidrich Nietzsche
"The virtues we acquire, which develop slowly within us, are the invisible links that bind each one of our existences to the others - existences which the spirit alone remembers, for Matter has no memory for spiritual things." —Honore Balzac
"The soul comes from without into the human body, as into a temporary abode, and it goes out of it anew it passes into other habitations, for the soul is immortal." "It is the secret of the world that all things subsist and do not die, but only retire a little from sight and afterwards return again. Nothing is dead; men feign themselves dead, and endure mock funerals… and there they stand looking out of the window, sound and well, in some strange new disguise." —Ralph Waldo Emerson
"I believe ... that the soul of man is immortal and will be treated with justice in another life, respecting its conduct in this."
"I look upon death to be as necessary to the constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning." —Benjamin Franklin
"He saw all these forms and faces in a thousand relationships become newly born. Each one was mortal, a passionate, painful example of all that is transitory. Yet none of them died, they only changed, were always reborn, continually had a new face: only time stood between one face and another." —Herman Hesse, Siddhartha
"I know I am deathless. No doubt I have died myself ten thousand times before. I laugh at what you call dissolution, and I know the amplitude of time." —Walt Whitman
"Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting; The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star, Hath had elsewhere its setting. And cometh from afar." —William Wordsworth
"It can be shown that an incorporeal and reasonable being has life in itself independently of the body... then it is beyond a doubt bodies are only of secondary importance and arise from time to time to meet the varying conditions of reasonable creatures. Those who require bodies are clothed with them, and contrariwise, when fallen souls have lifted themselves up to better things their bodies are once more annihilated. They are ever vanishing and ever reappearing." —Origen (Yes, this is the same Origen which Christians quote so much!)
And my very favorite quote on the subject:
"No honest theologian therefore can deny that his acceptance of Jesus as Christ logically binds every Christian to a belief in reincarnation - in Elias case (who was later John the Baptist) at least." —Robert Graves
NOoooo
If you believe and accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour, repent of your sins and be baptised. Go and sin no more, if you mess up repent.You will see see the kingdom of heaven.If not, you choose hell. Knowledge knowledge...:)

Your welcome. IT is still a popular game today, even with adults. I think it is silly but many people play it. Back in the 70's people used drugs/acid and played it and people got murdered by players in the games by actually role playing. I am surprised you don't remember hearing about it...I guess they have shortened the name over the years so that the kids can play it without the parents knowing what they are actually playing. I think they even banned it at some colleges back in the seventies or eighties, too many college kids getting hurt...(being stupid).

People on here are really passionate about their beliefs ( or lack thereof ). Nice to see people standing up for themselves. I have never posted before but I'm amazed that some are so cruel to others due to differences of opinion. I have to wonder if the fact that we aren't face to face makes it easier to say hurtful things to one another. Surely we wouldn't speak to each other in person like this. Ok, totally off topic but that's my two cents worth :)

Take the pooper scooper and shovel it witch. That is all your good at.:)
Vet assistants help veterinarians in several tasks such as diagnosing ailments in animals, holding or restraining animals during procedures, administering medication, providing emergency first aid, and monitoring animals' recovery from surgery. Vet assistants also do the dental cleanings on canines and felines. They draw blood and do complete blood panels on animals before surgery.

A vet assistant is not just restricted to handling animals. Such a professional is also responsible for scheduling appointments, ordering and maintaining supplies, and billing. Veterinarians sometimes rely on them to provide comfort and reassurance to pet owners.

I hope you have more respect for your Vets. Assistant when you take your little dog to the Vet. She could very well be YOUR Vets. Assistant. They work hard to make sure our furry little friends are in the best of health so they can live many happy years.

Compared to your job of strip searching inmates, She has a job that takes much more intelligence.

Keep it up if you do, you might just get washed off the map. I can see those atheist crying to God, asking for forgiveness to save their families. Many will come to know the Lord this night, yes by fear, and thanking God who spared them. May God have mercy on the ones who call out for help, to Him. May God have mercy on all the Godless souls, who may die tonight and the days to come...
Instead of "visioning" the atheist crying out to God, Have you tried PRAYING for those who are hurting right now? Some may lose their homes and the lives of their loved ones. What kind of Godly women would fantasize about other people crying out to God like it is some kind of sick joke?? Have some compassion Knowledge. These people need our prayers right now

Welcome to this lovely site. We are all people with different walks of life. I find it interesting to hear the "what" and "why" of other people's beliefs. Most of us just agree to disagree then we have some who are ready to cut your throat if you dare not to believe "THEIR" way..Enjoy the debate and feel free to talk to us :)

Well now Grace...a turn of events has just came up... You have lied about being in a prison in the USA. It is illegal for a woman to strip search a man. It is illegal for a man to strip search a woman. Your post just proved you have not done any time in any prison or jail. You would know that, but you didn't. What kind of crap are you trying to pull now? You have lied to all the people on this post. Every inmate gets a rule book on the laws, in case anyone is violated in that way the inmate always gets the A.D.S & I.D.S. A person of the opposite sex can only do pat down search, with a witness present. The opposite sex can never strip search, or be in the room while it is going on. You are a liar. Now, my question is why, and what are you trying to prove to believers and the unbelievers.....you are a fake ecarg. So now, are you really a vet assistant, or going to college, or are you a man.....your word holds no truth or value.

I have been praying for them all day. I hope the lost does cry out to God for their safety....you evidently are not watching the news. I would rather they be saved and make a new start with God, or if they do die, they go to heaven....Why wouldn't you? But tell me grace what the heck are you trying to prove? You NEVER were in prison. You lied. What are you really doing on this thread? You are lying to everyone......your other post proved it.

Some of the Gospel's authors are still being debated.
So?
Jesus was not the messiah prophesied in Isaiah, which is the book on which Christianity is based.
Not totally Isaiah. Jesus is all over Isaiah 53. Isaiah 53:10. But the Lord was pleased to crush Him, putting Him to grief; If He would render Himself a guilt offering,(animal sacrifice)....
Jesus never called himself the Messiah that was spoken of in Isaiah.
Jesus quoted Isaiah in Luke 4:18-19. The latter reaction of the people in the synagogue indicates they understood what He meant.
Paul's teachings are diametrically opposed to those of Jesus.
BS. Jesus is pre resurrection and His audience is Israel. Paul is post resurrection and his audience is Gentiles. Pay attention to context.
The teachings that are attributed to Jesus before the crucifixion are different than those attributed to him after the crucifixion.
Everything changed post resurrection.
John makes many claims that Jesus did not make when he was teaching. The gospels of Matthew and Luke disagree on several major points.
Major points? The major points are all the same. Diety and resurrection of Christ. Cruxification via Pilate.
It is a conglomeration of books that nobody actually paid much attention to until the general public was able to read.
Actually early witnesses started to die off so they thought it a good idea to write it down. You have 4 accounts by different writers. If they all were the same in detail you would argue collusion.
That's when the church(es) had to start writing apologetics to explain that the Bible doesn't say what it says.
More BS. They wrote down to clarify and combat heresey.
Then the church said that those who don't have the 'Holy Spirit' can't interpret the book so that any questions would be stopped before they were asked. Who would want others to think they don't have this spirit?
Non believer are perfectly capable of understanding the basics. They just do not believe them to be true.
It's foolishness, created by ancient men.
Resurrection of Christ is fact. It is foolish to assume otherwise.
While there are a few beautiful and truthful things in the Bible, most of it is just tribesmen trying to control their people.
Control for what? Those people could do what they wanted. If they wanted to be Christian then certain behaviors were expected.
This is the way with all religions. If you follow a religion, you are following what other men want you to say and do and live.
If you follow God, you will need nothing written down by men.
Throw out all the books written about God? Unbelievable.

Now WHY would I want to lie about myself being in prison? If I was going to lie about my past, I sure would have made it a little more glorifying than being in prison. You just cant stand the fact that I get along with others "regardless" of what they believe and you try way too hard to disprove what I say. It was YOU and Lie Buster that I caught in your decietful lies and you will stop at nothing now to try and regain your reputation that "YOU" yourself ruined. I am who I am regardless of how you want to see me. You can not ruin my testimony. Nice try but if I really wanted to prove it..."I could" so watch how you judge someone. The thing is..I DONT care if ANYBODY knows my true identity but thats EXACTLY what you want me to do. Sorry Knowledge. You are smart enough to go against me. Would you like my opus number??? SURE you would..unlike you, I DONT have stupid stamped on my forhead. I may have done some stupid things in my past. But I paid my debt to society. I am forgiven.

I didnt say I was a Vets Assistant..I said Kaitlin was. You are always telling her to scoop poop and I am showing you what a V.A does. She doesnt scoop poop. She cares for animals. If you leave her alone, she wouldnt be so hateful to you. I dont blame her for attacking you and your immature husband. You are a Christian and should know better. Kaitlin doesnt know God.
