<quoted text> We see this kind of remark all the time....a threat you really don't have any reason to be making since you're not God, and an empty threat which you cannot back up. It's the same old stuff, time and time again.
Maybe you should think about the questions YOU will be asked and what answers you have to them.
Feeling tough today I see...Just like you replied to me... I am secure in my faith, and I don't have to back up anything. Btw, it's not a threat, it's a fact.
Maybe you should be responsible for You...

Yo AC,
It has been quite some time. Life is pretty 'round here. Hope it's good your way too.
It's gooda see you again.
It's good to hear from you again. I'm glad to hear life is so good. It ain't bad here either. Now that my wife and I have an empty nest, we'll be moving near Denton where the kids are in school. Between fashion shows for my daughter, concerts for my youngest son, and engineering shows for the oldest, I couldn't stand the four round trip drive from here to UNT!!!

<quoted text>Hello, dear. Haven't talked to you for quite a while. I sure do miss our conversations.
As do I. It's so good to hear from you. I'll hook up with you on FB next week during spring break and catch up. I hope you and the family are well.

How the hell long you been in school?
NO STOMP LEFT BEHIND!
Since I retired, school is my job now. I intend to stay in school until either I learn the sum total of mankind's knowledge or until I die. It keeps my mind fresh and alert and I have so much yet to learn. I don't intend to go out like my dad who did nothing but sit and let his mind turn to jello until, finally he died witless. If I do the same, it won't be for lack of effort on my part.

Oh be quiet. Playing both sides is so desperate and typical of you..... Pick one, and stay there. Now stop posting me, or I will be forced to call Kate to put you in your place... Lol

Fact - the quality of being actual : actuality <a question of fact hinges on evidence> : something that has actual existence : an actual occurrence : a piece of information presented as having objective reality (Merriam - Webster)

Not a threat, it's a fact? If your scriptures were based on fact, no one would doubt. Christian faith is the antithesis of fact. Paul himself said:

"Now faith is the substance of things HOPED for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1

Your faith, something HOPED for, lacks the quality of having actual existence or objective reality.

Christian faith is oil and fact is water, and they don't mix.

I will say, I agree with you here... I love school and learning.
The more I learn, the more I hunger for it... Without getting too personal, my passion is History and Science...

I read your story and I myself have a very similiar story and view. I am now realizing its all in your head and how you treat others. Theres nothing external about beliefs. Its blasphemous to say your not christian in the area Im from they will downright call you a witch and shun you.. what kind of religion is a good one if they treat people who disagree with them like this? Bravo I am moved by your admission and hope I can also soon accept that I am not a christian either.. Im more of a spiritualist.
Way to go SG....welcome to the club!

:o)

And I think you are on the right path - it is a spiritual, internal belief that we choose on our own.

Those who say that they have done this are much more honest than those who claim to be a so-called "Christian".

It is within, even Jesus said so....

Yes, Paul is correct... Also, nice to see someone quotes from MW, instead of Wiki... 1615
