Dave.
You posted to Aerobatty, chiding him for smoking pot, and sarcastically telling him to suck deep. Knowing of your cigarette smoking habit, I posted to you, suggesting the same.
No crudity. Just your dirty-old-man mind.
Can I help you with anything else?
Yes, pick up the dead chicken in front of your office trailer.

<quoted text>To bad neither you nor your brother had the inner strength to deal directly with your problems. One of the dangers of relying on an imaginary outside agent to guide you throughout adversity, is you don't learn to develop this inner strength. It's a crutch, a false sense of comfort, in the end it can only weaken you. Curled up in a ball whining for God to "please help me" instead of standing on your own two feet and facing the world like a man. You end up a whimpering child, begging your sky daddy to help and comfort you.
You are so wrong God is our inner strengh, It`s a comfort only a believer can feel. Comfort is not a sense, it is a feeling. You are to busy trying to take comfort from humanity. Why? At least give information on how strong you are face the world like a man tell the truth, who are you? how do you live? Do you love your nieghbor? Was you childhood free off adversity, Do you have same tax rate? Did you know anyone who suffered because he never had a crutch. Did you ever whimper as a child and beg for help. If so you are the blessed. At least hope we can all experince this what a wonderfull world it would be. I want you to know i get the peace he knows his brother only Got from God,, I am sure his brother does to. They both felt the spirt, imagin that. I feel bullied when you talk, I then sence God will take care of my enemies, And move on. I am just saying. Please no need to hate on me, I don`t hate you.

(2 Samuel 12:11-14 NAB)
Thus says the Lord:'I will bring evil upon you out of your own house. I will take your wives [plural] while you live to see it, and will give them to your neighbor. He shall lie with your wives in broad daylight. You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and with the sun looking down.'
Then David said to Nathan, "I have sinned against the Lord." Nathan answered David: "The Lord on his part has forgiven your sin: you shall not die. But since you have utterly spurned the Lord by this deed, the child born to you must surely die." [The child dies seven days later.]
This has got to be one of the sickest quotes of the Bible. God himself brings the completely innocent rape victims to the rapist. What kind of pathetic loser would do something so evil? And then he kills a child! This is sick, really sick!
Biblegatway.com

Footnotes:a.2 Samuel 12:11 This sentence was fulfilled in the agony brought on David by his lawless children: Amnonís scandalous behavior with his half sister Tamar (13:14) and his consequent murder by his brother Absalom (13:28, 29); Absalomís escape to a foreign land (13:38) and his return after three years; Absalom without recognition by David for two more years (14:28); Absalomís deliberate, rebellious attempt to win the hearts of the people and supplant his father (15:6); Davidís flight from Jerusalem, with the mass of the people against him (15:14), the terrible battle in the forest of Ephraim, won by Davidís forces, with Absalom killed in flight (18:6ff.). Davidís agony of heart is echoed repeatedly in the history of these tragedies II Sam. 13:1-19:8 and in some of his psalms. Even when the great king was dying, his son Adonijah was attempting to usurp the throne, and was later executed as a traitor (II Kings 1:5; 2:25).

I only believe in one God. Whether I go to the temple, gurudwara or church, I only pray to the one. Whether I say waheguru, allah, God, I only think of the one.

Doctor everyone of those people that died in the flood died because of unbelief. They all could have been saved but they refused to get inside the boat. It was all a big joke to them. Until it started to rain.
During 1969 a powerful hurricane hit Gulf Coast. Itís name was Camille. It was a category 5 hurricane. The actual wind speed is not known because it destroyed all the meteorological measuring equipment.
Hurricane Camille made landfall late on August 17 in and decimated Pass Christian, Mississippi, ground zero. Maximum wind speeds near the coastline are unknown, but gusts were estimated to have approached 200 mph (325 km/h).
Remember this location Doctor, Richelieu Manor Apartments in Pass Christian, Mississippi. Several people in the Apartments decided to have a hurricane party. Ignoring all the warnings from officials. These Apartments were located right on the coast.
The hurricane came in and wiped out the apartments. Only the foundation was left after the storm. People are stupid Doctor. They were stupid in Noahís day and theyíre stupid today. Unbelief killed those people in Noahís day just like it did to those in the Richelieu Manor Apartments.
You are serious right? Your not just being a poe. Is it your contention than EVERYONE on the face of the planet was an "unbeliever?" Everyone, millions of unbelievers? First of all does that non seem plausible, and second how exactly do you know this? What evidence do you have that the entire population of the earth, with the excepting of Noah and his family, were "unbelievers?"

And how much notice was given before this mythical flood happened? What if I was a true believer but lived in Australia, how would I have gotten to the Ark? Would I have had enough time?

Of course we all realize that science has completely disproved any such nonsensical event. Without invoking Godmagic it could have never happened!!

prayer should be in school so chldren can be taught to open heart and soul to a higher power. They should be educated in religion and spiritual truth. That way they will have knowlege to choose thier faith when mature enough to understand truth from the word, or thier own experince. Not be subject to so much hate and confusion. They should be protected from ignorance of stupid people, allow them to be taught the history of presidents, wars, law and look at how confusing it is to us we can`t trust goverment and it is not because of religon,or race it is because ignorance. Learn about welfare, durg users, children who have never know trust or love. They can not even depend on a church, Look how they have even confused our faith and judgment. We should focus on every religon and faith right along with goverment and law. The truth will always lead to the word. Their is a Higher power.
Are the judges nuts and clueless, follow me. do you know me, Do you know any children who come from abuse or neglect? Or stupid because of ignorance? How can we teach children in mass quanities?

OK Dave. I took the "suck it deep" comment from Eagle's post, referring to your heavy smoking habit.

I'm not saying that America doesn't have a drug problem, or that we don't need to address it. I'm saying our efforts thus far, largely referred to as "the war on drugs", has been completely counter productive, and despicably costly.
I don't respect your opinion at all on this. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, and assume that you are just ill informed about all the factors involved. Surely you are not just an advocate of needless death and destruction as public policy.
Either we fight drugs or we now down to them. Which would you prefer?

So you do not believe Jesus Christ is God? You do not believe Jesus is the only way to Yahweh God?

Read the bible. If you do not like the gore and blood of the old testament, read the new testament Gospels of matthew mark luke and John.

You love the imagination of Jesus? would it not be better to know the facts about Jesus? read the new testament. And if you don't want to, why not?

Goes back to what I asked you yesterday. Would your life, or the life of your family, or job, or standing in your community be at risk if you chose Jesus Christ as your only God?

I have met hindus and muslims in asia that have witnessed what Jesus has done in the life of others....but can't commit to Jesus themselves because of the price they would have to pay from their family and their society.

is that you?

Because they disagree. They're very confusing. They act like they live their lives socket on knowledge & fact. But when it comes to God, they have no kniedge or fact, they simply believe no deity exists....

The first is a complete sentence.
The second, though technically incomplete, refers to the first, and the word "curable" is understood.
At least it's understood by intelligent people.
It's even understood by some not-so-intelligent people.
Like you.
Understood?
"not-so-intelligent" is wrong.

"Like you" isn't a sentence.

"Understood" isn't a sentence.
