Amen ..me too ..I love to talk about possibilities in Christ ..like what I was saying yesterday .<quoted text>Anyone that has the nerve to imply that nicks illness is due to sin is not a Christian..period. Even if that person believes that it should never have been said to someone who is ill and is struggle to survive.I find it evil and the lowest of low.No she didn't kill anyone and yes that is her opinion but Her big mouth shows just what a Christian she is. When someone shows you who they are the first time,believe it.How many years have you guys gone back and forth over the same things over and over again? You can lead a horse to water but you cant make him drink.We are taught that if once twice you try to teach someone Orthodoxy and they want to argue,then walk away. Your not going to bring anyone to your beliefs by shoveing the Catholic church down their throats.It is better to walk away than to loose your own soul to the devil by commiting sin...wrath, pride etc. I am so guilty of these things myself...I see my faults,I know what my faults are. I would love nothing more than to have EVERYONE on this forum to share and learn from each other. To have compassion and fellowship with everyone here.To pray for one another and to share our griefs and joys.I feel that is productive and Christ would smile down on all of us.
And we as Christians should talk about HIM...ABOUT heaven all things,we should have in common
And you're,right ..his forum can become an occasion for us,all to sin..myself included big time ..And it's,wrong ..big TIME..
As far as I'm.concerned you guys,ate my brother and sister in Christ...And I find much of your beliefs,about Orthodoxy beautiful ..
And your thoughts on how we will NEVER change each other's, religion..which I ACTUALLY never expected nor wanted to in the first place ...is,EVIDENT.
anyhow, as,I said,..sickness is,a result of Man's,SIN.
GOD never intended it ..in the garden ...there was none ..
Why one person gets,sick..One not ..no idea..But we ALL AGE and our bodies fail ...it's inevitable ..so.anyone who.thinks,that by being old they will escape infirmity is,selling shelves,a,Bill of goods ..IMO.
Unless They die before aging ...
My father died in a cat accident ..my stepfather from five gunshot wounds in he back ..my mom ..her heart Gave out less than a,year later ..
I pray TO GOD ....THEY ALL had a chance to pray before,death. And are with the Lord now,..
Nicks,feelings that his illness has brought him closer the LORD ...is beautiful ...
GOD BLESS you both ..
