<quoted text>another article for your perusal

which is based on the involution and evolution of the universe from hindu cosmology, cyclic in the idea of rounds. same concept from egyptian cosmology
Strange. Not only does it not in any way support your specious claim that evolution and involution are antonyms, Parabrahma is nowhere to be found in this paper by a Princeton professor. You're all froth and no beer.

The word "gay" was used long before it meant homosexual, or do you think they coined the term?
The word gay has gone full circle, twice, once meaning lewd and lascivious, then subsequently happy, then as a pejorative for what was considered lewd and lascivious conduct and then, co-opted as a term of empowerment implying happiness once again. It's really gay.

Hi,
What a well-thought out and well-expressed communication. I admire your honesty and integrity in sharing your experience. It seems to me, reading through the whole of your story, that your baptism as a boy of ten was more due to the pressures applied by the religiousity of the folk around you than to your own reasoning with regards to following Christ. In other words, although you were being told that you were now a Christian, and hence a new creature in Christ, the words and the experience simply did not add up. The result of this was that you then had to go through years of suffering the consequence of this delusion.
When someone decides to follow Christ it is a deeply personal decision, and is between the person and God alone, not between the person and the host of religious family, friends and acquaintances.
Many church pews are filled by folk who consider themselves to be Christians and yet do nothing to display their true allegiance to Christ. Many are there because it is considered the 'done thing' to attend church, so that people can see that you are a 'good' person. Many are there through habit, and many more for a variety of other social reasons. It is often difficult to find a church where the Gospel of Jesus Christ is preached let alone enacted, and where often even the leaders of the church fail to display the humility and compassion that would shine through the true believer.
Being a Christian is not about what you can get but about what you can give. It's following the path of self-sacrifice like Jesus did for the benefit of others and with no demand for gainful return.
I suggest that the honesty you display in your communication is the result of a spiritual journey of soul-searching which you are on, even if you are not fully aware of it yourself. I hope that you will truly find your spiritual self one day and experience the joy of knowing Christ in a really life-changing way, and that you might then consider yourself a Christian though not a religious zealot.
May God bless you in your searching.
Uh oh.

Good morning Rosa. To be honest I had to look this one up. Does the recipe you have consist of cooking on an open fire? During the summer time as a family, we spend a lot of time watching Caveman TV (our name for our fire pit). Thank you for the offer, and I love getting recipes! I hope you have a wonderful day today.
Do you work for Geico? I'm embarrassed by the Aussie gecko.

Yeah, either that's not the real Dusty or there never has been a real Dusty. Whatever the case I would hate to be there when the laughter stops. Some people will stoop to incredible lows just for a few minutes respite from their own life.
