let's cut to the chase and see who's the individual nazi between us:
i love God, Jews, Christians and all people. what say you?
Yeah, that's why you treat women badly, tell others they are going to be tortured for all of eternity and preach to people who have asked you not to do so, when Jesus very succinctly told you to dust off your sandals and walk away.

You don't love anyone, waassuupp. You just say sh*t like that because you are told that's what you're supposed to say to drag the deluded by the hair into your delusion.

Since you are here to lead others to Christ could you tell me how this post applies. I researched and could find nothing to support your claim.

If you look most translations of the Bible use the word ox...

http://bible.cc/numbers/23-22.htm

You will notice that only Darby uses buffalo.

And here still again only Darby uses the term buffalo...

http://bible.cc/job/39-9.htm

Now at both sites you will notice that a rhino was referred to a few times along with the unicorn.

The Grand Canyon is not specifically mentioned in the Bible but I do acknowledge that some believe that it was form during the great flood. Who knows though...could have just always been there.

I just could not find any reference in the Bible to the discussion of how large someone is...down there as you say. Could you possibly give me scripture?

Really? But He lives. Although I must agree that much 'religion' does just that.
I thought you were a follower of Christ. That would make you have a religion just like everyone else, even it's just a religion of one.

Why try to divorce yourself from religion? Has Christianity become so distasteful that even while practicing it as you interpret it you are ashamed to be associated with the religion of Christianity?

I personally have a religion of my own. I don't try to say I don't have a religion. I just say that I am not a part of any organized religion and that I take from each good thing I run across and try to incorporate it into my own belief system. Some of that comes from some of the words of Jesus. Some of it comes from Taoism. Some of it comes from Buddhism. Some of it comes from those with greater minds than mine, whether religious or not. Paine, Jefferson, Ghandi, M L King, Sagan, Hahn, Emerson and others have influenced how I think. Still, what I have is a belief system and therefore a religion.

You can't say that religion in itself is bad when you yourself practice one. You can say that organized religion has bastardized everything Jesus taught, or any other great teacher taught and be pretty much on the money.

I don't have a problem with people practicing a religion. I have a problem with someone telling everyone they have to believe or burn.

You seem to have mellowed out since the last time you visited here. That's a good thing.

In The Mahabharata: An evil king, along with his allies, defeats (through deception) five other kings who are then sent into exile for 12 years. On the 13th year, the five kings go “incognito” so the evil king cannot find them. And during the 14th year, a great war takes place - a Battle of the Kings - where kings and their armies are slaughtered in great numbers, this battle took place in Kurukshetra in Northwest India.
This great slaughter is said to have taken place around 2500 to 2000 BCE.
Further, according to Hindu history there was an Avatar of the One True God, on Earth during that period of time who was also a King – Krishna – a full Avatar of the One True God.
According to Hindu sources, Krishna went as a Peace Messenger to the evil king to persuade him not to go to battle, and to return all the property and goods he had taken from the five other kings. He came as an envoy of Peace and the King of Dharma or Righteousness. But the evil king, puffed with pride and ego would not listen. Hence the battle took place.
Krishna was pleased with the outcome of the war, and blessed all those who had come to the aid of the five kings.

Gods who are pleased and appeased by war and the death of others are not Gods to worship. They are Gods to abhor.

Why do you seperate Christians from Jews from "all people" ?
The bias in your words betrays you.
I love good people and hate bad people. Jesus said that was wrong. I am working on it.
He cannot see his own bias. Someone who loved all people wouldn't have to separate them by religion or anything else. All people would have covered it.

Only the body dies eternally. Sorry, Christ will return when He chooses. He was seen by many after His death and they watched Him ascend. No, I can't prove that to you, and really had no plans on attempting. I'm sure more suited people then me have tried. Your beliefs are yours to cling to, as are mine.
These are beliefs, not facts. If you choose to see your belief as facts, that's fine.

And you are correct, the beliefs are each person belong only to them. There are no universal answers. Each person is unique. Each person has uniquely different experiences. Why would any all-knowing God then expect the creations he supposedly created to all believe exactly the same way when their experience, knowledge and moral/ethical code does not allow them to?

Stating beliefs as facts is as empty as the bottle with which the wino just got done. They are empty for everyone except for the person holding those beliefs.

Hi Annie,
I realize D.C. is not a state (yet) but I wonder where it falls in the list.
Methinks not very safe judging by the number of murdersI keep reading about almost every day.

I read somewhere that it ranked in the upper 10(I think 5th or 6th) for most dangerous state and around 20th most dangerous city.

Hello Water. We worked it out. I took issue at the first statement, and nitpicked the post <<blush>>. Yes I must admit to a glimmer of a thought (or ten) at killing my range, and my laptop with the helpful prodding of Mac sometime back ;O) I am doing good, and happy that we are finally above 0 today including wind-chill. I have not been doing much in my slice of the world due to the bone aching cold. You mean biscuits don’t naturally come from a can? Who knew…..’chuckles. I hope you have a wonderful day today!
I can give you a great recipe for drop biscuits. Easy, quick and good. I can also give you a good recipe for dumplings that is equally easy if you like. Always glad to share and have others share their recipes with me. Never know when you're going to find something that you really like and never heard of or never tried to make.

Oh, a little advice on shooting your range/laptop. Take them outside first.:)
