Where other sins eat away at the soul and burn it alive, despair crushes. The weight of despair can seem insurmountable, so much so that it culminates in a final distrust in the Divine Mercy of God.

Despair tells God Himself, "No, you cannot save me.'My wound is desperate so as to refuse to be healed.'(Jer 15:18) There is no hope for me. You may have died for others, but not for me."

Despair, of course, kills even the drive to give one's life meaning.

It causes the soul to shrink away from the love of God as though it alone were too evil, too fallen away, too far gone to be saved.

Despair rejects love with a kind of violence, though it turns this violence inward and wreaks havoc upon the soul.

It is, in effect, the ultimate sin - the sin of rejecting the Holy Spirit, of rejecting forgiveness because it bloats the ego of the person into thinking that they, and they alone, are beyond the pale.

For despair blocks the love of Christ in one's life, and is a kind of passive rejection of God.

As Christians, we know this is not true, nor is it ever true. The only sin that cannot be forgiven is the one that is not repented of. In Christ, there is always hope

Despair enters because we let it enter, and our surrender to it on the spiritual battlefield is often because we are so terrified of fighting it. Despair puffs itself up to be much bigger than it is, and even those who live in relative comfort and have happy lives with few problems can find themselves in the throes of existential agony.

The cure for despair is hope in Christ, in His Mercy and His Love. One must never reject His sacrifice on the Cross as though it were not meant for the soul caught in despair, but instead make an act of hope. "As an act of faith made in the midst of darkness and doubts is more meritorious, so it is with the act of hope uttered in desolation and abandonment."8(Fr. Gabriel of St. Mary-Magdalen)

If the bible told you to spin on your head I am SURE you would.
Here is some more sillyness!
Genesis
........ First God made heaven & earth 2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters. 3 And God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. 4 And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day.
----------
Why would God have to seperate day and night with light and darkness when they both naturally occur every 24 hours with the rotation of the earth?(lol)
hint!...the sun.
You just keep on believing! LOL
----------
Get real, Michael. Gen. 1:1-4 tells of the separation of day and night on the FIRST day. The sun and moon were formed on the FOURTH day for signs, seasons, and times (calendar).
The Light of the world (Jesus) appeared on the FIRST day. "Let there be light."
How could day and night 'naturally' occur when DARKNESS was upon the face of the deep? You're giving too much credit to the THEORY of evolution. The only Big Bang was when GOD SAID!
KayMarie
Exactly.

I have said that before ..to discussion whiny in law who is a physicist ...what if the big bang was,God speaking

We don't get to talk much ..on these things ..it upsets the Kids,..
He and I are fine..But our kids ..think we are fragile I guess .

<quoted text>
You are not answering my questions because you can see it aborts your attempt to prove the word of God fallible.
My analogue of your presentation in an effort to prove the Word of God wrong,is: Monday, Adam/Eve had two sons. Tuesday, Cain kills Abel. Wednesday, Cain leaves. Thursday, Cain takes a wife. Conclusion... it seems as though there were extra people already on Earth before Adam and Eve were even created, and Cain took a wife from amongst these extra beings.
There is no record of Cain's age when he left, no record of his age when he took a wife, no record of her age.
Genealogy records in the Bible list either the line of natural descent from father to son, or the line in which, by the laws, the inheritance descended, or that preserved in the public records. The Bible records the birth of sons of Adm/Eve, it does not for daughters...it just says they had daughters.....when and in what order is anyone's guess.
God Created Adam/Eve...no other.
Cain's wife was a descendent of Adam/Eve...Scripture shows there was a large population of Adam/Eve descendents, from which he chose a wife. Proof of this is that he built a city for them after his son was born. The kinship between the two is uncertain....but they were, as I am, descended form Adam/Eve...
Ok, so your answer is that Cain took one of his sisters (that was never mention in the Word) as a wife and she bore his child? Let me mention that there was much emphasis in the Bible when it came to Seth being born as if Eve had no other sons after Abel was slain. So since U say that daughters weren't mentioned, can we assume that Eve had nothing but girls after Abel's death and that Cain bore children with his sisters and Adam impregnated his daughters to populated the land during that time of only a few humans?!? Maybe Abel before he was killed helped out and fertilized some of his sisters too, right?!?

<quoted text>T ell me the amount of time lapsed between when Eve conceived her second and third child! U know, U still avoided the question!!! The question was, WHERE DID CAIN'S WIFE COME FROM? Was it his sister? Did Eve have other children before Seth was conceived?, because Seth would have only been the 3rd child. If this is the word directly from God, then there should be no contradictions, period!! But yet it seems as though there were extra people already on Earth before Adam and Eve were even created, and Cain took a wife from amongst these extra beings. Or did he take his sister as a wife?
Her male children are named ..First three anyway .
We don't know about the females,.

I imagine she had many children before and after Seth....perhaps even girls between Cain and Abel...as they were men when Abel was killed .

Since God old hem to multiply ..She was probably quite fertile ..

Had many many children .just because of the gestation time for women.

We can posit there were a,lot of them ..And perhaps her offspring had mire than one wife ...as did Jacob ...

Just a supposition

I didn't claim I wrote it. I focused on the thought, not the site. I don't know enough about the site to recommend it. I am not going to refer someone to a site unless I know it fully- what its positions are. The biggest question is how far in school did you get. People on graduate post graduate levels have never had to make me aware of academic ethics. Stick to the blogs. I find it interesting than rather see the positive in my posting from a Catholic site, you found something to try to get a dig in.

The Bible came out of the Church, not the other way around. This is also an orthodox teaching.

No, no dig at all. I like his blog and I very much liked the post that you pasted here. The only thing I object to is not crediting him. It's unethical not to do so. No need to have a hissy fit, Nick. The article is very good.

lol, you're not campaigning for the presidency.

No one "started anything up". Why are you getting so bent out of shape? The man deserves to be credited for his writings. I did nothing wrong by doing just that. There's no need for you to start an argument over it.

In fact, I'm *not* going to argue with you. If you don't like my posts, scroll past them. Easy peasy!
