I do not believe that God punishes us for any kind of question. In my honest opinion, many comments are made on these threads to simply place a line in the sand between beliefs/opinions. They don’t even serve a purpose in being said other than cause others anger and frustration. That anger and frustration simply digs the line deeper when the person being offended responds in kind. I am sorry that the comment was made to you, and I hope you know that I am not in line with it.
Of course not! Wees furiends :D

I believe it was someone posting that no one responds to another posters posts. It was ironic. And now I have to untangle my tongue D:

try telling her that Jesus "is the 'stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved”.
say this consistantly in various ways for a few years without compromising the message and see how you're treated by this crowd. if you don't, you have no right to judge me because you can't understand where i'm coming from:)
Yes yes, of course. Are there neanderthals in heaven?

what part of the rest of what i said won't you understand?
"i told her that in hopes that she would begin to sow where she could reap life and health"
what are you doing for her more than the other atheist's with no hope?
You told her “here you are very sick and seemingly poverty stricken, but yet you continue to deny the One who died to prove that He loves you and is willing to come to your rescue.” Please think on this? In what world does Christ not expect us to live life? Is every bad thing that happens in my life because God willed it, or because I asked for it? Wrong time…wrong place…wrong message. My opinion and sticking to it.

"You imply to a poster that God is punishing her..."
this is an accusatory lie and it's why i talk to you as an accusar rather than as a believer.
i mentioned the inevitable law of 'reaping & sowing' to Hagen in hopes that she would begin to sow where she could reap life & health.
Jesus and paul spoke of the law of reaping & sowing. do you think they're evil as well?

Hagen - you seem to have succombed to the classic mistake of looking to and trusting people over looking to and trusting God/Jesus. you were offended by this as has EVERYONE else been when they were less mature in the faith, including me.
the differece between us is that you never allowed yourself to grow and mature as a Christian, but instead invested in paganism and unbelief and you seem to be reaping the fruits of your choice.
i'm not saying this to be cruel, but as a matter-of-fact, because
it's never too late to repent and make right choices:-)

Just so we are clear. And yes, you did PM me. I didn't really read it considering that you were prescribing laying of hands and anointing. Again, I don't believe in magic.

FYI - i sent Hagen a PM apologizing and attempted to explain myself, the same way i'm trying to explain myself to you; an accusor who won't give me any benefit of doubt.
I am more than willing to give you the benefit of the doubt….have done so, your comments are the issue. I was not aware that you sent her a T-mail, yet still you sit and defend what you said to me. I find it interesting that you have no qualms about telling me that my beliefs are comparable to the Lutherans (not even my denomination) of the Hitler era when it comes to my faith, yet when I question something you say in the here and now…. I am an “accusor who won't give (you) any benefit of doubt”. Still no red flags?

you're still not sure that the Lord's death sacrafice on the cross was sufficient for your sins?
if not, please don't try to tell me how to share the Gospel:)
Really? If I question who I am, what I believe, and what I stand for, I question Christ? <<head desk>>

"She knows I am a Christian"
maybe we need to define what this is supposed to mean?
do you think being a christian means acting in a certain, righteous way, or do you think it means trusting Jesus to be your righteousness?
do you tell kait that there is no other name under heaven whereby we can be saved but by the Name of Jesus?
you should try it and see what kind of reaction you might get!:)
Perhaps since you told Kait that you “hate” Christians…..you should define the meaning to me?

think of it this way:

why would someone have "life and that more abundant" if they've rejected the One who said "I have come so that you might have life and that more abundant"?

what am i doing wrong in your opinion, for trying to pursuade someone to repent of rejecting Eternal Life in the Person of Jesus Christ?

you seem to be enjoying this - LOL:)

here's the deal, Hagen, from me to you: i would do anything in my power to help you get well. also, i'm very sorry for offending you in any way since that is not my intention.

i believe spiritual issues are as valid or more than physical issues; i.e., as your spirit goes, so goes your soul & body. that's why i'm trying to tell you the truth as i know it. it's exactly what i would want from a dr or any other person in my time of need.

i'm sorry for saying harsh things to you and hope for your sake that you can be sorry for budding into business not your own and for being accusatory against me.

how's this?:)

how am i supposed to know - you'll hafta tell me what it is about 'spirituality' that you struggle with?

we all grow in grace and maturity until we die, but we cannot ever improve on what's already been done for us on the Cross:)

In my honest opinion your wrong comes in at “pursuade someone”. One can not persuade another into belief. It’s God’s gift, and one that should be entrusted to him.

i hate what's become of 'christianity' in much the same way that Jesus hated what became of Judaism in His day.

LOL!! Give an honest apology and ask again then, as my answer might change. Not acceptable…..since I accused you for a good reason. love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, what are these?
