Everyone wants a backdoor portal of escape "JUST IN CASE" so to keep their names in the minds of others.

But in the Bible you find many stories of Jesus Qoutes, "Why do I bother with you Humans, my father was not human, I don't know why I bother with you people." And he left.

Then you find information on who is all these people to Jesus,1st he was a flop houser, begger,vagrant, regailing all the peoples stories he met as if it were his own adventures; recieving food, and housing and clothing and a bath. Known of the supposed Authors in the bible (friend)knew him for life indefinantely. A 5 minute conversation on the phone runs transcripts in DA FILES and FBI over 5 pages long. So yes a day encounter runs detailed transcripts over 2500 plus pages in scripture. The were Killed and beheaded and ripped in half after they wrote what their journey Jesus and his conversations were.

Writing a journal of your own life and submitting it to US Ambassy and Vatican, it becomes the most valued informaiton in history for your decendents fortune or pardonence and Vatican runs a additional revised version "The Book of Jaimie" or whatever your name is. Don't lie in it. Even if your stole, lied, embessled, battery killed it al lgoes in and the trasncripts runs a computer assisted aliby for you in Supreme court, and they do a investigation on your life abuse to try to compile rehabilitation and medicine for you and your children.

My Father One of God's Military (in the bible only Veternas and warriors of GOD are saved and their children) Their children have rights to search and rescue LOST ONES but they are held soley accoutnable by GOD and counsil if they pick spouse or affiliate to save wrong.

Why does everyone slander, waste others time, and harm Target hate cirmes for getting their "OWN" scriptures done earlier in life and monthly inserts.

Because Evidence to condemn your neighbor and merchants are in it, and they go to prison and die of disease that formed overnight, NOt you, you reported to officials and were given annymonity, finance and rehabilitation.

AMEN

As the Bible said "the TRUTH will set you free"
Also indicates by Jesus" what are you looking for in the scriptures? I didn't write them. What are you looking for? Can't you just have Faith in God" "."

PS their are people that are paid over $160,000 a year at Unniversities to read the bible and critique it, and paraphradse to insert in societal growth or demise.

You read it for free and have no medication or rehabilitation of your own SELF manipulations of what you digested in body or mind, it becomes a control and like a possession, it is the subconscious power struggling.

Before 1970s they used to have retreat rehabilitation camp grounds, they rebuild YOU before you read the bible, things you like, good at, have capabilities of work in things with mind or assembly and find the best placement for you in life.

During this time some takes 2 weeks, some 6 months-2 years to restore.

Life rehabilitation is every 7 years so you have to reaffirm what you learned every 6 year check up. A bandaide fix is every 2 years, poor counselor.

Usually it is fasting with DR. Nun and Counselor supervision, about 2 weeks to 2 months is common. IV to rehydrate(saline drip) or drinks of Pedialyte is fine for a at home fix. Jello warm flat 7-up, a mild traq and a anti-biotic.

Hope this helps, I did the 2 week fix as a child, I ate a couple triskets with a slin slice of cheese and a minimal supply of water, then I had some eurythromysin still at hand with out expiration and I was fine for about 2 years form chatty or movement of the brain. Or sinus mucous membranes like a spider web and when snot runs threw it feels like bugs, or when your Nucleus membranes are forming this is a hysteria as well, older you get the membranes will disolve in body powdery or fluid, so brian will have to figure that out and it will run flashbacks of movies you watched and have bad dreams at night and while your awake to see what is SIMULAR so it can store informaiton YORU NOT CRAZY IT is huamn and normal brian and body movemnts and foresight and behaviors, if your uncomfortable find a mild 10 miligram prozac or valuim with your local dr. You may have to cut and paste post for them to know what your talking about. And never discuss with Nurse or desk job, DR and patient is classfied if you talk to nurse or other, they will exploit ILLEGAL Make the appt for flu or infection confirmation and discuss when your alone, "not" with the nurse.

As we wait on GOD -

http://bible.cc/2_peter/3-15.htm

Waiting for GOD to help us is not easy, but David received four benefits from waiting:

1. GOD lifted him out of his despair,
2. GOD set his feet on solid ground,
3. GOD steadied him as he walked, and
4. GOD put a new song of praise in his mouth.

Often blessings cannot be received unless we go through the trial of waiting.-- Unknown

“I waited patiently for the LORD to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our GOD. Many will see what He has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD.”– Psalm 40:1-3

We Baptist start with Jesus and the Apostles. One does not have to be Baptist to be saved.

Had you read what I said: Catholicism does not represent Christianity. They have killed millions of Christians. Protestants have killed Christians as well.

Many Catholics have become saved as well as Protestants. Christians follow Jesus and scriptures are their doctrine; not some feeble minded old men claiming they are god.

lol, you will believe one day when you stand before God Almighty for judgment. Your days are short.

If you're reprobate mind; you'll not know until you stand before God. Rest assured; your days are short. All you have to look forward to is death. You do not know the risen Lord Jesus Christ.

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition

I actually find a lot of similarities in the hierarchy of churches between the Catholics and Born again Evangelicals...or a lot of protestant churches, too, but I'll go with Born Again evangelicals.

Now,I'm really no expert on Catholicism, so maybe a little help here and correction will help, but the born again evangelicals have a rewritten bible they must have interpreted by their ministers. The priest helps with the interpretation of the bible for Catholics.

The born again evangelical big board member head of their church or nondenominational church is a group of people not in their towns who hand down the stand the churches will take on any given subject, and the pope does the same thing for some Catholic churches.

Am I close? Am I making sense?

The Catholic Church’s magisterium (teaching authority) is essential in Bible interpretation, plus, the Pope is infallible in the meaning of the scriptures of the Bible, and, this is the only way he is infallible.
Catholics do not independently interpret scripture. The Church, just as the Bible states, has full Authority as to the meanings of scripture.

Thanks, Nettie...then it IS a lot like the other churches...there are interpretations handed down from councils...and the born again evangelicals get their news from the Robertson's etc. Unless, of course, they are like people in Indian.

There was a neighbor who stopped by a few years ago stating he husband was starting a church and would we like to come. I told her no cuz my husband was agnostic and I was a buddhist. She looked at me as though I was the devil himself and RAN...I mean RAN to her house. It tickled my baptist neighbor so much, she almost peed her pants..LOL!!!

So some Born again evangelicals are started with preachermen who have no formal training, just interpret the bible as they want or hear Kevin Hagin, or Kenneth Copeland or any number of televangelists interpret it.

I have had folks from different churches come to my door, and one time Jehovah's Witnesses came by.(I have Rosary beads hanging in plain view from the open front door on a mirror, some one of my kids made in grad school).
As soon as my Rosary is spotted, a change happens, shifting of the feet, mumbling, and rapidly turns to 'well, see ya'.

You know I was raised as a Southern Baptist.....
In church and Sunday School also, we were mostly taught what to believe.
Sure, we read our Bibles too, but we were, more or less, instructed as to what to believe....what the Southern Baptists believe.

Exactly. And we had a more liberal view of Christ in the American Lutheran Church..realistic, i guess. We were to love others as ourselves and save the judgment for God. We were to care for those who were poor, sick and disabled. It was a powerful message I still carry with me.

You know, one of my best friends in schools was a Baptist..not southern, but Baptist. She was the most kind and loving person in our school. I guess they got evangelized, too. Cuz now, I don't find any of the baptists kind or loving..wait..I don't know that many, so that's not a fair assessment at all.
