Calling all fake Christians...?
I really dont know where to start but I guess Ill start with the wolves in the sheeps clothing.How dare you use my fathers image in such a corrupt way that you have caused not just the Atheist to bash my Lord. Im 42 years old. When I was growing up in the 70s there were Atheist all around us. We worked with them, played with them and never gave a hoot about what or who they didnt believe in and they didnt serve our God but they didnt bash him either, as a matter of fact they are a peaceful people unless provoked just like you and me so if youre going to bash or tear anybody down please dont represent my Lord Jesus because you are not of him. My Lord did everything out of the love he had for people, even Atheist and Judges like yourselves. You obviously have no love for humanity to tear them down that way so just leave them along and stop causing them to hate though that wont be many of them because from the post Ive been reading most of them are way more intelligent then the ones claiming to be Christians. How embarrassed Jesus would be if you all truly belong to him.
To the Atheist
I am a Christian. sold out for the love of my Lord Jesus but as a true Christian I would never try to force my beliefs on you nor would I ever try to tear you down for not believing in it. When many people come to know the Lord they are zealous and set out to save the world but is not even close to being ready and make a big mess of things but if that person was a true Christian, nobody would get offended because though the inexperience babe in Christ made a mess it was done out of love. The people thats getting on here posing to be Christians are not Christians. My father said that a Christian is known by the fruit that they bear (the way they act and how they treat people). Those are not our people. As a Christian I personally will that all come to know the Glory of our Lord but I will also respect you when you say no thank you.

Judgement Day 2011 Question?
It is said in the bible that (not going to actually make quotes) that God loves all of his children and is a perfect being. It also says that Jesus died for our sins. This provokes some questions about Judgement Day. Yes I have visited their website, and I understand about the End Times. My questions are this:
1. If God loves all his children then why would he only save his Christian children? Why would He judge people, that were born to think a certain way, and may not even know him? Why would He, who created them that way, would leave them behind to suffer?
2. If Jesus died for our sins, He truly loved us all. Now, why would He stand there, and (during the End Times) watch as his people suffer in agony, an are killed? I understand he would be an icon as proof for the non-believers, but how could someone who did such as a thing - stand and not help?
3. How could God, EVER send a person to Hell and Satan? If he loves us, and tries to protect us from him all of our lives, then why would he doom us to eternity of torture?
and 4. What about the children that are too young to know? If there are three group, and only the group of true believers will be saved, what about new-born infants? They have never hurt anyone, and they are purely innocent, but they have never prayed, and do not know God. Will they be saved?
Thank you. I consider myself my own brand of Christianity (not a cult) and if you would like to hear my beliefs, simply ask. I have my own beliefs that are different from the Bible, because the Bible contradicts itself, I dont believe it because it was written by the hand of man, not God.
I dont believe in Judgement Day - JUST SAYING
I FORGOT A QUESTION!
5. In the Bible, after the whole Noahs Ark thing, God cast a rainbow in the sky promising never again to destroy the world. THIS (if you believe the Bible) proves Judgement Day wrong
(It contradicts itself by saying that all men are equal but that homosexuals are wrong)
THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANSWER: fortheimperium2003 - it was very insightful, intelligent, and polite
Answer: Please read answers. 1. God's children are Christians. sorry, it is an exclusive club. How can you be his child if you dont believe in him? If your father calls you, you will hear him. God will judge everyone who have not heard of him by their works in this world. The Bible says the law of God is written into everyones heart. We know the difference between right and wrong. 2. You are talking about a spiritual and physical world. Some person who loses both his legs might curse God, and another will have a spiritual 'awakening' after losing his legs. There are many stories of people who became Christians AFTER they were horribly burnt, raped, mutilated, or in some other way had a horrible life changing experience. I recall one famous person (cant remember his name), who was burnt by white phosphorous in vietnam, and left in the 'dead pile'. He woke up with half his face missing, and burnt all over his body. He now ministers to troops and other people who have been horribly burnt or injured. 3. In the beginning, God set up a voting booth in the Garden of Eden, and we voted him OUT since day one. We had a choice of living 'ignorant' in paradise, or having all worldly knowledge (death). Guess what we chose? God doesnt ship us off to Hell. We send ourselves by pride, hatred, envy, murder, etc. 4. There is what is called an 'age of accountability'. Jesus said that when we come to him to believe, we have to be like a little child, innocent. most believe that children under the age of 7 (but you really cant put a number on it), are 'innocent', and not hell-bound As far as the Bible contradicting itself, you need to read it in context. An example are the gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John. They all have a different take on the same event. Think of watching TV, and you see some cop chase in the land of fruits and nuts, California. You will see the helicopter view, somebody with a cell phone video, and the camera in the cop car, they all see the same thing from a different angle. when you read the Bible with an open mind )and a decent working knowledge of ancient history and culture), you will see that it doesnt contradict itself. The only time it is a contradiction is when we take it out of context. Hope this helps edit: 5. READ THE BOOK. It says he will never destroy the world BY WATER, doesn't say anything about not setting it on fire:) also The bible says the world will never end. READ THE BOOK. LIFE AS WE KNOW IT will end. Your world will be flipped upside down. You are grasping at straws. All men are created equal. We are equally JUDGED according to what we do Not only are homosexuals wrong, but ALL sexual immorality, there is a grocery list of things you do that will ship you off to Hell, why should Homosexuality get a blank check? why are they so special that they DONT deserve judgement for sexual immorality? If I run around having illicit sex with numerous women other than my wife, and dont repent and stop my evil ways, I will be smoking turds in Hell right along with homosexuals. I know the Yahoo thought police will turn me in for bashing the gay community, but THAT will ALSO show that people will take my words out of context.

My friend keeps getting possessed? Hear me out.?
Well I dont exactly believe in all this shit, because quite frankly, it is all a load of shit. But my friend keeps getting possessed - when I say keeps I dont mean every day, only occasionally. For example, it happened last night while there was a load of us out, and this is actually the first time Ive seen it happen, but it hasnt just happened to him when hes been drinking, it has happened to him twice when he was sober as a judge. Throughout the night, he was happy as fucking Larry, not a care in the world, but literally, in the space of a few minutes, he became silent and reclusive and proceeded to stand against a wall by himself and stare at the ground. We asked was he alright, and he looked up and his facial expression was completely vacant and it was as if there was nobody there, and more importantly, both of his eyes went completely pitch black (not the white part of course), and seemed to grow in size.
We took him home and sat him down, repeating his name to provoke a reply. He was extremely fidgety and kept repeating the same thing (Ill avoid the inclusion of his name and replace it with he) - "He? He isnt here. Hes gone. Hes never coming back. Hell never be here again. Hes out forever."
A little freaked out, realising this has happened before, we just took him to bed and went on our way after a while. But for the 15 or so minutes we stayed there just in case he tried to leave or something, he just laid in the bed with his arms at his sides staring at the ceiling.
The next day he was fine, and had no recollection of what had happened, but said that he remembers everything of the night up until then.
Now before people jump to the conclusion of he was just off his face troLlolllLOLLlllL he was probably just messing around with you, funny geezaaaa!!11; No, just no. And before people jump to the other conclusion of MEDICAL CONDITION, following with an unrelenting barrage of statistics, surely some form of possession is not entirely out of the realm of possibility? As I stated before, I am very skeptical about all this stuff, but its been 5 or 6 times now over a few years, and its just getting strange at this stage.
So, does anyone have any reasonable explanations for what is going on?
He was not on drugs..

Is there such a thing as absolute truth? If you say there is no sky, no animals, no air, is that truth?
Ive read much on here from some who claim there is no God. There is a God, only fools would claim such a thing..per God, Ps. 14:1. You claim it is logic, nonsense. To say there is no God because you cant see Him is like saying you dont believe in air because you cant see it. I dont agree with Christians who bash Atheists either. You are not going to win one soul by bashing them. Truth is truth whether you or I accept it or not. There is a Heaven and a Hell whether you believe it or not, just because you dont believe its true doesnt change that. If you go 100 miles per hour and head for a brick wall because you say its not there it will really hurt when you hit it, so will Hell. No safety belt or airbag will save you from the impact. Truth when it comes to God can be debated but it will not change the truth. When we speak the truth we must speak it in love with all honesty, there are souls at stake. They may mock us but God is the judge of us both. I provoke those of you who say such things to challenge God to show Himself to you. Quick, stand up like men and speak to the creator of the earth, I dare you. Ask of Him to see. He is merciful but not one ounce of His being is afraid to speak or act, are you afraid to ask? We know of Him because of His Spirit within us, His love overwhelms us and causes us to adore Him. If youve never experienced love would that mean there is no such thing? Of course not. Though your words have been stout against Him, yet He will forgive and envelope you with His love if only you would dare to seek Him. When you stand before Him it will be too late. You have no idea of what joy you are missing, what love, tangible love, all encompassing love. Love that melts away all hatred and causes us to love the unloving. Why would such great men in history sacrifice themselves for nothing? If there were no proof to them of Gods existence? Too many have died to share the Gospel with the world so that souls might be saved.
My challenge is a simple one, Ask of God, approach Him, appeal to Him to see if He is real, I dare you.
To the monkey guy, lol. Thank you for the compliment...to the rest of you, my challenge still stands.

Was I wrong to almost kill the Atheist?
Before judging me, please read my entire question and then respond accordingly.
I was at a dinner party for a friend and was meeting some new people. After going for our second glasses of wine, I started telling everyone about my feelings on death. I have always been very scared of dying, and every night pray there is an afterlife. I was explaining to this one guy, Paul, that I thought there still could be hope there was an after life because humans have compassion for things and we have emotions.
"Nope. Its just a function of the brain." Paul said, almost in a coccky tone.
"Um, okay- thats still your opinion. I believe there is life after death." I said.
"There is life after death. Other peoples." Paul laughed. I didnt.
"So youre just so sure of yourself that were simply atoms and nothing more?"
"Dude, shut the fuck up and have fun. This is a party. I dont care about death. Its inevitable. Its gonna happen." Paul took another sip of wine and then began flirting with some ugly girl.
But I couldnt let it go. Paul was one of those stubborn atheists that always felt the need to bash others opinions no matter what they were regarding the after life. Ive encountered them before- they just want to tell you the BAD effects of being mortal. I dont know whether it was the wine or my own anger towards Pauls rude responses, but I suddenly found my fist punching Paul off his chair and to the floor.
"Fucking jerk! So you dont care about death, huh?" I grabbed a pillow from off the side couch and placed it heavily on his face. As people around me tried to pull me off, I would not budge. I have a pretty strong grip. Pauls muffled screams did nothing but provoke me to continue, and I continued to press the pillow across his face. He began becoming less active, and I guess the "ugly" girl was actually his girlfriend, because she began crying and telling me to stop. I finally let go, and a red-faced Paul was coughing and gasping for breath.
"Scared of death now, asshole?" I laughed at him. But unfortunately no one else found the incident funny. The police were called, I got arrested and I now face a court date. Over what? Minor assault? I was proving Paul wrong by also showing that he cant just go around saying nothing happens after death. WERE all entitled to our opinions on the subject! And now Im stuck with this stupid charge.
Please only answer if you can help me. Im not trying to get smarmy remarks. Paul deserved it.
For the record, I AM NOT CHRISTIAN! I just dont believe death is the end.
Answer: Nothing you've written suggests that Paul was not afraid of death. Paul believes that death is the end of life, so there is obviously a good reason why Paul would not want to die. Indeed you're the one claiming that you live after you die, so presumably you shouldn't be afraid of dying. If you take your beliefs seriously, wouldn't you have preferred to be the one under the pillow?

How do I get back on my exs good side?
Okay, so let me start off by saying that this is a little embarrassing asking complete strangers for relationship advice. Ive tried asking my friends but none of them had any idea of what they should tell me. So thanks in advance. Anyway, my ex boyfriend david and I broke up about a month and a half to to months ago. This was our second time. The first time, I screwed myself over by telling him that I thought that us just being friends was better for us because wed had better times just as friends than as a couple. We both started to move on, he met a girl named Nicole, keep that in mind, that was 3 years younger than him and was on his track team. I met a guy named Nicholas (strange coincidence, I know). David and I stayed broken up for about three weeks but all the while, Nick and I were getting serious and Nicole told David that she was already seeing someone. So when I told David that Nicholas asked me to be his gf, David sent me this 5 page text message about how he was insanely in love with me and that if he couldnt have me, he didnt want to talk, so I listened to my heart and went back to David. Everything was going fine until about a month later when I screwed myself, yet again, and broke up with david through a text. Anyway, to make a long story short, two months after David and I broke up, he starts to become this huge liar. For instance, he was playing the game one day and I was joking and said "Youre such a virgin for playing that." He told me he was a virgin the first time we talked and when he first told me he loved me, he said "I want you to be my first everything. Youre the one I want to take my virginity, to marry, to have my kids. I love you Brandi." And trust me, I know hes a virgin, no question about it. Anyway, he goes "Oh, I didnt tell you?" And I was totally expecting him to lie to me and say he had lost his virginity, just to make me jealous for the joke I made. So I go "What? Youre not a virgin," sarcastically. And he says no and starts this ridiculous story about how he met this girl named Tiffany online and they had sex at her place while we were broken up. Now I knew he was lying, not only because of the tone of his voice, or because he couldnt even tell me what a vagina looked like when I asked him, but because he went overboard and added "Yeah, Nicole asked me out but I said no," when I said "So you had sex with someone after I stayed by your side after you got rejected by two girls before," Nicole and another girl named Brittney. Then I aske when he met her, he goes "About two months ago." Then I go "But we were together two months ago. So you cheated on me." The he goes "No, I didnt," then says "Yeah, I did. Is this all cause I gotta go." And I gave him the longest silence in the world. Part of me believed it, part didnt. But in the in, I said something to provoke him again and he hung up. So I called him sobbing asking "why would you do something like this to me, David, me! I know Im not the nicest person in the world, but I tried to be the perfect girlfriend for you." He was really cold about it, I knew he was only cold because he knew he didnt do anything and had nothing to feel guilty about. So I texted him something kinda mean that night that said "I just dont see y u felt u had to lie. You couldve just told me the truth. I wouldnt have judged you." Then he says "I didnt lie." Then I go "Well obviously youre not gonna tell the truth so Im done. I know Ive said this a million times but youve gone too far this time. And Im not even gonna lecture you because just you being you for the rest of your life is punishment enough." He sarcastically goes "Okay. Ill talk to you tomorrow. Good nite." so I tell him that I never wanna talk to him again and to lose my number. And we havent talked since. This was about a month ago. I really, REALLY miss him. I realise that I was really mean and I just dont want him to go off to college regretting having met me. But Im too afraid to call. He lives in NY and I in Chicago. I just really really really need advice. Im 15 and hes 17. I havent stopped loving him and I dont think I ever will. It sounds utterly insane, I know, I just need one person who understands how I feel to help me. And if youve made it to this sentence, thanks, youre awesome. lol
@Matthew Yeah, maybe one of those FEW 441 viewers can help me individually. It wont take long considering the fact that ITS NOT THAT MANY.
Answer: The fist thing you need to do is give your partner space. All you probably want to do is pick up the phone and call your ex. Or you might be tempted to text. Doing either thing is a perfectly good way to make thigs worse for yourself. Many times your partner will begin to realize how much you actually meant to them after they had some time to think about what they are missing. Allow yourself to recover emotionally. If you want to learn how to get her back you need to take the time to become emotionally controlled and calmed down. Women dislike me who are desperate, clingy or needy, so pull your life together and get over those feelings long before you consider trying to draw her back in to your life. Behave as if nothing is bothering you. In other words if you want to learn how to get her back, you need to play it cool. She is not going to want to take you back if you are feeling and behaving depressed. You need to make sure that you are behaving as if you are having a good time, overcoming the break up depression to let her know that everything is okay.

What do you think is the best option for me at this point? My parents drive me crazy!?
Im 20 going on 21. I finished 2 years of college & now Im home because I wasnt doing well in school(being irresponsible but also life circumstances..i transferred to a new school..i had just gotten out of a verbally/emotionally (& a little physical) abusive relationship..and my parents dont know everything i went through because i dont feel comfortable telling them. Hopefully I can go back in January. I have 2 older sisters (one whos 32 and moved out when she was 18) and one who is 22 who still lives in the house. I also have a 12 yr old brother.
My dad said hes not paying for anything school related when I go back..I dont care that much..being independent makes me happy..one less thing he has to hold over my head & control me with!
i might get an apartment (my university is in another city) because its cheaper than the dorms...but thats only if everything works out...even with my loans they dont give me enough to cover books/food/etc. if i did get the apartment i would stay there year round since i need to take summer school anyway..its time for me to move out for good...but if things dont go right..idk what i will do or how i will move out without the financial aid..
My family is conservative when it comes to things like sex, alcohol, going out, etc ..so im part good girl, part rebellious daughter..never had sex but have done a few things.and i may not wait till im married..but i drink & party sometimes....its very hard not to live as you believe and be treated like a heathen just because u dont feel like going to church on Wednesday night.
My relationship with my parents has been rocky since I was a young teen...now I feel like Im reaching my boiling point..its especially difficult to come back home after having all that freedom...but i made my bed and now i must lie in it.
I have become angry living in my parents house & I cant live like this for much longer. I just want to be happy. I feel like living here is stunting my growth..because to them im a child but to the world im an adult.. which i enjoy (responsibilities and all) because the freedom is worth it. Not having someone judging me and coming home to a peaceful home would be ideal..
specifics about me
-have a part time job getting decent hours but looking for a 2nd job
-very motivated (no1 has to beg me to look for a job or to try to get back into school)..i did awesome in high school..my parents didnt even have to push me.
- no car and no license but i will have a license soon.
things my mom does or has done to piss me off
-procrastinates when i ask her to help me with things..like helping me learn to drive again so i can finally get my license.
-come in my rm in the morning while im still sleeping and yell at me about some bullsh*t like cleaning the counter off or missing ONE night washing the dishes
-provokes me and sometimes will stand there until i give her a response so she can argue.
-says things like "what happened to you?" like i have turned into some horrible person...
-makes me feel like a loser because I made a mistake in school, wont let me live it down..even though none of them finished college..and my mom only went to community college for like a semester..i am the first child to go off to a university and im determined to be the 1st to finish ..but always tells me about how good everyone else is doing and makes hurtful remarks
-singles me out because of my weight..im not fat im just not small like my sisters....this has affected my self esteem over the years but she would just saying im being "too sensitive"
-wishy washy..tells me to be an adult yet treats me like a child
-gives us a list of chores to do...even when they r gone they will call just to nag and tell us all the damn chores we have to do.
-said she is going to take the internet modem with her for a whole week while they are on vacation and i will just have to go to the library to use the computer..wtf?
things my dad does or has done to piss me off
-got mad because my sister and I missed one day of church (we overslept)..so he came home and started yelling and told my sister she better not move her car out of the driveway..which meant she couldnt take me to work and i had to call out! i know its just one day but i was so pissed that he would put something like my job on the line just because he was mad.
-unplugs the internet modem at like 11 every night..so we can "get up for church on time"..even though we dnt go to church every day...pointless!
-in a bad mood all the time... I have A LOT of anger towards my dad..we rarely even have conversation..most days its just hi and bye..or nothing at all...we have also got into a physical fight years ago.
-THIS ISNT EVEN HALF OF IT
Im just tired of the screaming matches and the hurtful things being said..

Is Michael Reagan guilty of a FELONY here?
It dont matter political side you are on, you just dont make statements like this and call for the murder of an American who, whether you believe him or not, has NOT committed a crime and HAS the first amendment right of free speech. I dont believe making death threats and provoking terrorism falls under free speech. I ask you to listen to this and you tell me if this is not a FELONY.
If Mike Reagan gets away with this, then what is being said is this. You can self judge and kill anyone you disagree with outside of the justice system. Before yesterday, I did not know who Mark Dice was. Mark Dice is a 9/11 truth advocate who is sending a DVD to troops claiming 9/11 was an inside job. Under our Constitution he is free to do this whether you believe him or not. The troops have the right to do with the DVD as they see fit. These are not children fighting for our freedoms. Mike has a right to be angry, but not incite murder.
But outside the law, is it not illegal to threaten death to someone regardless whether you agree with them or not? That is my question.
I did not hear where Mike called for the legal prosecution of Mark Dice. That the difference.
Im not siding with Mike or Mark. Im siding with the justice system.

Was This The Christian Thing To Do?
Im not judging either way.
I dont condone abortion but I do believe quite strongly that its the individual right of people on this earth to make their own choices.
With that being said do you think that this person in trying to save unborn children did the christian thing by first committing murder and that he did it by killing a man in church? What kind of Christian would they be?
I was taught that Christians are called that because they were taught by Jesus and his disciples and acted in a Christ like manner.
If Jesus Christ ... the Son of God wouldnt commit murder for any reason why would anyone else? Why should it be acceptable for some who call themselves Christians to do this?
Like I said I make no judgments on either person. Thats our creators job.
I just want your opinions on this. I really hope they are peaceful and thought provoking responses.

For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (NIV, Matthew 7:1-2) Therefore, it seems that those who judge abortionists will themselves be judged harshly, according to the “measures” (punishment) they use against them. Think about that! A true Christian who followed Christ's teachings would do as Christ would have done. He would not murder, would pray for those who he believed were sinning, and leave it up to God to judge them. Why do people who call themselves Christians believe that they have any right to judge??? It doesn't matter whether you believe it is a sin. Judge not. Jesus hung around with the scum of the earth...the sinners. If you want to convert the "sinners," you do so by example and with love, not force. There is nothing in the Bible stating that abortion is murder. Early Christian doctrine for many centuries as set forth by Thomas Aquinas was that the sould enters the body at 40 days after conception for males and 80 days for females. Early Christians did not believe that abortion prior to the time of “ensoulment” was a mortal sin. I think it is Judaism that believed it was with the baby's first breath. Here is some information on how the Bible is used both for and against abortion: http://www.twopaths.com/faq_abortion.htm Why is it that so many “Christians” are the least Christ-like people I've known?

You want world peace? Religious hang out with Atheist get along & together question my Faith.?
Hitler was allowed because people allowed him. Sloth is a sin. Spoil your children teach them they do not need to earn what they want or need. Do we really want the one with the less purpose than a fart to do everything for us. Pray to Jesus ask him to tie your shoes for the rest of your life when he dies on the cross who will teach you or tie them. Christian and believers of religion are retarded. They answer you with ANGER. They themselves know nothing about their bible.
Who chose popes to preach the word of god? MANkind. You have a sense of justice that may be the image of god. Believe what you want but when you got shit to say dont ask the idiot believers. People have used those very words god Christ, Jesus, Heaven, etc,.. that now i dont like saying them especially for those killed in gods name. It was the WILL of men. those murderers should go to hell and victims deserve better. but i am not he you judges the stupidity of Humans. If he is real then infidels will "Burn" in Hell. You too. Evil prevails when good men do nothing
The bible makes sense if you know how to read it. if you start think of it as a thought with the deepest meaning. A mind blow so powerful that it will dumb you out to the point that you didnt notice it. Look at the sayings of Christ which may not be so easily understood yet in your heart I and maybe you will know that it was god who will say things like that. Religious people take things to literal or do not search for the truth. Some of it may not be true because we do not know what heaven is like and therefore do not understand.
Your mind is far more intellectual than mine. A vocabulary which i lack. A potential to see the deepest meaning of the bible. The bible was written in ancient days. Go to ancient days. You are reading literature of the past not present. People tend to forget that.
Here is my theory for the Christ Explanation
Why is it that many moral teachings or philosophies rose from a focused era? His name might have been Jesus. All we know is a portion of what he showed his followers. Followers who will learn what is understood at the time. They followed him for the greater, thought provoking and advanced teachings. the common mistakes or sins was what he repeated for them not to do. through repetition they learned to make gospels.
God i hate biblical words. Especially for its history.
People should starve in this world. Really innocent should starve to death. And yes i want them to die. i want to be condemned for having these thoughts.
If power corrupts then the government is oppressing the lives of people with ignorance. Every single citizen in this country pay taxes. How do we know that this country can feed the world with all that extra money that is too much for one mans survival. We dont. So yeah let them starve to death. Lets see how long do the cows REALIZE they are more powerful than one farmer.
This should be the question you might want to ask yourself. In a time when illiteracy was a big ad unidentified problem, How could a victim of the cross gain so many followers with the understanding to change the world for years to come.
The answer is that he was the inventor of a powerful sword like the atomic bomb. He used the sword of his mouth and died by the sword. Not literally. Both weapons have changed the world we know.
I somewhat believe in god but when i see people like you asking questions like this. i wish i could bring the light to make you believe. Thoughts and questions such as this, puts questions to my faith. something i dont want to lose. I dont know how to pray. i dont where or who to ask but if someone is with me Let him show me the truth that this world has deformed. I wish i can show that god is good. I cant see him but i hope i can see it.
Make a circle of many people.
Tell them a joke, a phrase, anything.
when it comes back around is it what you said?
A rumor will be completely deformed.
Was it the meaning of life?
The same can be said for a person who died with the name history has deformed and much more.
His own word was his death.
His word used in crusades.
His word trusted in apostles who knew the deadliness of his word.and probably the things that will happen but did not understand how explain it. (especially to the illiterate.)
A miracle which could only be explained by saying he died for our sins.
Live by the sWORD, Die by the sWORD.
Christ Believers should know better than to respond with idiotic anger and words of their version of gods will. I bet theyll respond to your question with stupidity. Apostles were executed for their faith. I bet the Now Believers are nothing than those of the past.
Ask me what i think people will do to the person who is pure. I only know if it is a man. i will tell what i think.
Source: Mind, Bible, World, Heart, Mighty Pen of Justice (My pen that you shall never have even if you hold it in your hand but that doesnt mean you cant), and probably other stuff i cant currently recall.
I wish id made this shorter but my need for self-expression took over me. I hope you read this and Happy New Years and probably Christmas.
No one in this world will be pure. Everyone is evil in degree. I can tell what people will do to the person who is good. History repeats itself and if we do not learn from the mistakes of the illiterate people who were in the time of Christ, then let us persecute the person who is pure once again.
They say god will always be with us. Why go to church and give donations to those who have sold salvation?

ACLU sues city over Jesus painting By MICHAEL KUNZELMAN, Associated Press Writer
2 hours, 15 minutes ago
The American Civil Liberties Union sued the city of Slidell on Tuesday for displaying a painting of Jesus in a courthouse lobby, saying it violates the constitutional separation of church and state.
The ACLU sued after the Slidell City Court refused to voluntarily remove the picture and a message below it that reads: "To Know Peace, Obey These Laws." The ACLU says the portrait — an image of Jesus presenting the New Testament — is a religious icon of the Eastern Orthodox branch of Christianity.
"We did not file this lawsuit because the ACLU is anti-religion ... We did file this lawsuit because we believe this display is clearly in violation of the law," said Vincent Booth, president and acting executive director of the Louisiana ACLU chapter.
The suit was filed on behalf of an unidentified person who complained to the ACLU about the picture. Named as defendants were the city of Slidell, St. Tammany Parish and City Judge James Lamz. St. Tammany Parish is being sued because it partially funds the court, the ACLU said.
On Saturday, Lamz said the picture would stay up unless a federal judge ordered it removed. He said he didnt believe the portrait violates the Constitution, but the issue should be decided in federal court.
Lamz could not comment Tuesday because of the pending litigation, his office said.
Before refusing to take the painting down, Lamz consulted Douglas Laycock, a professor at the University of Michigan Law School who has argued before the Supreme Court.
Laycock said he told Lamz that the legal issues in the case arent clear-cut and could set legal precedent.
"I dont know how far the two sides will want to push things," Laycock added.
The painting has been on display at the courthouse for nearly a decade and hadnt provoked any complaints prior to the ACLUs recent objections, said Michael Johnson, senior legal counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, a Christian civil rights group representing the city and parish.
Johnson, whose group is often at odds with the ACLU, said the painting sends an inclusive message of equal justice under the law. He said the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that similar displays in public forums are constitutional.
Answer: Ridiculous. Isn't Slidell a place right across a body of water from N. Orleans? If it is, then people in that area need Jesus' protection in their lives. We all do, but especially that area since they went through such a devastating time a short while ago. I suppose they would prefer graffiti so bad that people cannot walk with their children past there???? The ACLU does do some great work for people who have been discriminated against and people whose civil liberties have been violated. However in this case, I believe they are looking for trouble where it seems none has existed over the picture for the past 10 years.

How much do looks matter?
In the dating world? Because I feel like Im never pretty enough and it seems to be a prescribed gender role for women (being youthful and looking good) and unfortunately, they can change over time.
Being 20, I feel like I have an expiry date on my forehead (like the eggs bought in a grocery store) and that once Im older, Im no longer valued and no longer pretty (I personally do not believe, this, but it seems as though society endorses so dearly). I took an aging class for psychology too, so I do know what I am talking about. And theres been research done about how men prefer younger women.
When it comes to look men have it easier, I also think the ability to acquire status through wealth is a lot easier than always trying to look young and pretty. Because everything is done over time, but when people get older, body parts sag (and by societal standards, its not considered pretty).
Im not going to post the picture of myself so that option is eliminated. Heck, I already feel judged for the way I look enough in my real world as it is. I dont need more additions.
Its easy to say "love yourself" or "be confident" and "learn to be happy" but what if no guy likes you, and youre not pretty? I remember in high school, my guy friend(s) made a top twenty of hot girls and one of my gal pals made it on the list - shes cute, nice smile, sultry voice, smart, skinny, doesnt wear makeup and really SWEET. My gal pal is beautiful inside and out (maybe thats also why she made it on the list???) but other girls were on there that placed higher than her were not as nice. To be far, I did not get a good look at that list. I look at my gal pal and I think "oh, shes so pretty and smart, why cant I be like that?"
Im not a girl whose shallow (a lot of the people around I think are awesome and date-worthy) but I think Ive liked only 2 guys ever is because I am borderline asexual. (Thats a story for another day though). One guy was an athlete in grade school (who I ended up resenting, because i think he ended up somewhat of a meanie). and the other who I currently like does not fit societys definition of beauty for a male. (But such a sweetheart with a big nose).
I guess another thing thats been on my mind is because I told my second guy friend (one that was not involved in making a list and known him for 10 years, hes not a bad person but he said something the hurt me which I am explaining right now) that I used to like the athlete and he said, "the athelete? Hes out of your league". It was REALLY hurtful. When I told him that it really hurt me he just was like "youre too sensitive". Were fine now...and we even went out to supper when hes in town. But still, I feel kind of hurt (since then, my respect for him declined)... am I really that ugly to provoke such a statement from a friend? Its been about a year now since that event.
Anyway, yeah... Im just sad because I feel like Im never pretty enough. I dont think Ive never made it on the list of guys top 20 hottest girls...etc. Call it degrading, but its nice to know someone thinks you are pretty.
PS. the guy who made the list is a really good friend of mine and hes currently dating someone in my university. =P I dont think hes shallow, to my knowledge.
Can someone give me advice?
Answer: I totally agree with you...oh my god...whatever i've been thinking..you've written it here. Most of the people are after looks...personality is also important. And yeah, what your guy friend said to you is kinda rude about that athlete thing... Everyone is beautiful...and also no one's perfect...It sometimes hurts to know that some guys are after girls who are only beautiful outside...looks like the guy i like too..is like that! :( They care only for outside beauty..its the inside beauty that matters.All that glitters is not gold Most of the people have called me ugly, not good looking and many other names(its better that i dont mention here). It hurts me and makes me feel all depressed...sometimes i get sick of this life and hope that i dont exist...but again i have this hope in my heart that all guys are not like that..may be one day i'll find a guy who likes me for who i am..and not into those external beauty thing. I just hope..... :(( please answer mine:based on your answers im going to take a major decision in my life today:No one's answering...please guys, im desperate http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110509222908AASIB73

How do you deal with someone who is elderly,yet clearly capable of making trouble?
She is elderly,yet clearly able to be a busy body. She gets into peoples business,starts fights,and hits me trying to provoke me. Shes in her 60s. None of her daughters get along with her,my mom included. I have no where else to stay until I get a job offer. She accuses me of things I did not do,tells me Im stupid,and calls me awful things. Such as, I lost my baby and she thinks I had an abortion so she says Im a murderer. She is very simple minded and I believe to be closed minded and ignorant. I believe she has mental problems. She preaches the bible yet weve caught her flashing her breasts on ispq. Yes thats what she likes to do. Hey Im not judging,but when your married to the same man for 55 years and lie to him about it,thats a little messed up. No actually thats totally Fd up! So when she really provokes me with whatever words to hurt me.... I bring that up. My grandfather is such a sweet man,yet a pushover...its kind of why she got her hooks in him at a early age. He doesnt do anything,but will take her side only when she yells enough at him...then when I leave to get away shell have him follow me...and hell tell me how much he loves me and he wants me to come back. Im a sucker for my Paw Paw. Everyone in our family is..she gets him to call all her daughters and grand kids after a fight because no one will talk to her and she knows we pick up for him. Sometimes shell even call from his cell phone tricking her daughters to answer the phone. Shes manipulative,verbally,as well as physically abusive. Just last night she hit me in the back of the head with her hand and told me to shut up..I grabbed her long finger she was shoving in my face and pushed it away from me...I wasnt hard with it,but enough to ger her attention. She also has bladder problems and pees on herself and computer chair(which Im not sitting in!lol) and is in denial. Ive gently tried to tell her options about adult diapers..all she wears is those pads...not helping. She just tells me to shut up. Shes not yet ready to go to a nursing home...her mind is still too sharp. Yes I know its obvious to move out,but I have nowhere to go and as soon as the paychecks come in Im gone. I did move out with a friend temporarily,and she kept calling to find out where I was and wanting to "bring" me something...just to find out. She told me how she missed me so and was being so sweet and told me I could come back..well my friend was moving so I had no choice but to move back...she cares very little about family and more about friends...one of the reasons she "tolerates" me being here is to do housework,which is a trade off I dont mind,but when you treat someone like a animal and a object it can make a person bitter. There is so much more to say,I just need some useful tactics to be able to deal with her...so I dont lose my cool. She follows me into rooms or outside when I try to get away. She abuses me,but I dont think People will take me seriously because who could believe a little old lady would be capable? lol She did it to her kids why stop with the grand kids?! Should I call social services,what could I say? When I start working I wont be here so much so I know that will help. Btw Im a certified nurses aid in Texas so if anyone has work maybe near where I live let me know. Please no rude answers,Im going loco and just need some good advice or maybe a laugh. Thanks
Answer: Yes, yes you should call social services......she is a menace to your grandfather as well as others and even herself. Do it today, do not delay!

Why are my friends like this, if they even are my friends?
I really have no idea what to do anymore. I used to be a semi-Christian, where they would treat me a lot nicer and more courteously than now. But now that Ive become an atheist, they seem to want to avoid any kind of meaningful conversation. I try to be open in my conversations with them, but they dont seem to get the hint at all. Who gives a s&*t that Im atheist, seriously? Even though I completely disagree with Christianity, I keep it to myself and dont judge them for it. It seems like they have this policy of only care for those that think and believe the same as you, which I sincerely hope is not true. Ive had to quit on one "friend" because he deliberately ignores me and is completely unreasonable. Theyre being impossible, except for a few of them. Ive made some new friends where they live (they live in a dorm), and I feel like they look down on me for hanging out with them. What am I supposed to do? Go hang out with your unreasonable a&&es with extremely banal and boring conversations? I like to be very intellectual, open, and thoughtful when having conversations with people, not f&%^ing lame when having conversations! I really dont understand their thought processes at all. Ive tried to look at it in their shoes, and this is what Im thinking:
a. Since Ive left their "little" circle, Im no longer welcome.
b. They look at me as some taint to their lives, so they dont want me around.
c. Theyre afraid of being friends with me.
d. Since Im a "sinner" in their "book," why bother knowing me anymore? (Yeah...Im such a sinner that Ive joined the military to fight for your intolerant peoples freedom!)
e. They feel like Im a lost cause, so why bother?
These are just ideas, and may not be true. Ive tried sparking up conversations to lead to figuring why they are the way they are towards me, but it always fails. I hate to be this angry about this, but Ive about had it. I feel like I couldnt get closure until I find out why, even if it leads to not talking to them ever again...I apologize if this provokes anybody...I honestly dont mean to.
In response to some of the comments, why limit yourself to being friends with people who believe only what you believe? Thats very close-minded and intolerant in my opinion. If you base your friendships only on that criterium, are those friendships really true friendships?
Answer: Dude, You don't want to be hanging with those biblethumpin' F*%$wits. Those people will always screw you because they think they're saved by believing jesuchrististheirloradsaviour. they don't have to make merit in the world and their sins are already forgiven because jesusdiedforyoursins.

Is there anything a person can do to reduce a persons sentence time with a 3rd degree felony?
My step father is currently in jail as of last night. Its my entire fault. I provoked him and we fought a little but in the end Im the one with all the bruises to prove it because Im a small female. Anyway I feel really horrible that this happened. Maybe I should have lied to the police or something or refused to make the statement.
Is there anything I can do or say that will help him? I was told that he probably wont be able to get out until after he sees the judge which wont be until new years or unless someone bails him out... I sort of started the fight but the police are perceiving it as me being the victim but I dont feel like it. Honestly it feels like hes the scapegoat or something. I dont believe that they should see it as entirely his fault.
Please, is there anything that i can say or do that will help him? I dont want him to spend the holidays/his life in jail or prison.
What Im really wondering is can it somehow be dropped to a misdemeanor?
Answer: If you can, try to talk to someone. Maybe the officer(s) that you spoke to. You need to let them know exactly what you said above. However, chances are he will have to wait until he sees a judge. But since it sounds like you'll have to see the judge or be a witness, tell them what you said. I'm not really sure what happened or anything, and I don't want to get you in trouble. Good luck :)

divorce? been unhappy last 4 yrs!?
I am man who prides himself on having pride to get through tough situations. However lately well over the last 4 yrs Ive been really down. Before I met my wife I had a pretty good life I was happy and had a great future with a lot of faith. These days it seems like Im like ok whats next? What else bad is gonna happen to me today, next week, or next month. I was raised in a christian home but my parents were divorced and kind of dysfunctional. I was in college when I met my wife. She was cool studied the same thing I studied and I believe was a cool girl. She went to a different university then me but we knew of each in high school and didnt live far away. I liked her she had a great personality but was very sexual. I always was the guy who was against being with loose women aka as jumpoffs. I would clown guys who would wife one. Well my wife said yea Ima really good catch I only been with 3 guys in my life and they all were relationships. Well I knew something had to be off. 3 I mean wow I though senior in college you are a catch..pretty! wow. I thought I found a good one. I go in her town for the summer and run into a few classmates that knew of my girl. While not giving me details they began to tell me that she has been with other people.I kind of figured this because she would get really defensive and nervous when asked about her past. Im the traditional guy who cares about sexual history. Im not here to judge any woman but I do have a preference. Well to make a long story a little shorter. I was 18-19 a lot of them athletes. Well in between that time I would ask her and she give me another 3..Im like there has to be more then after a couple months another 3. wow! Ok the reason I didnt leave her while all this occurred is b/c she 7 months pregnant with my child. So I was just steaming like how? I had a great future ahead of me and I would have never slept with her unprotected to begin with If I had known. Terrible feeling! She has my child and Im like ok you know I can do this past is the past. Well after my child was born I just needed to know more about this woman..She was wrecklessly emotional, very disturbing and possessive. I mean basically she is like a person who hangs on and wont let you go. Ive tried to break up w/ her many of times and she was cries and begs her way back. She later admits after we have the baby that she has slept with 18-19 people that she admitted to. 3 abortions and like I said a lot of them athletes some on the same team..Can you imagine? Being a christian guy and wanting to step there was pressure to marry her..Weak mind I know! I did!I thought God would punish me if I didnt..Crazy how my mind is my biggest enemy. I take care of my family and I even see some of her exes in my line of work. She is so dramatic and cant understand why It cant be like the first 3 months when we met? Huh? I tell her the whole relationship was based on lies and 3 months in any new relationship is supposed to be good. Seriously weve been together for 51/2, yrs and I dont remember being happy except for the first 3 months when we were dating and she was selling me telling me about her last relationship and how she only been with 3 people. Here I am 5 yrs later depressed, and feeling hopeless. So unhappy that I cant even pray..its hard to pray. I married a fatherless woman who been around the block, emotional, compulsive liar even to this day!, and a drama queen. I actually caught her emailing a ex she slept with asking him how he was doing? Why did I let it slide? Because yes I cheated and it was wrong and there are no excuses..I even told her about it and wanted her to leave me..Did she?? I can cheat right in front of her and she would probably turn her head. She just likes the title of being married and I guess i makes her feel better about her past.??? We argue all time and often tries to provoke me. She lies constantly and has the biggest mouth and tells all our business..Of course not hers though. Every time I say we are done she tells me God is going to punish you and you got it coming! I even separated from her and she moved in with my mother..so I had to take her back I cant have my daughter and her living with my mom! Just embarrassing! She has caused a lot of trouble in my life over the years and I will admit it I feel so bitter..Like I let her ruin my life. This is the life she wanted so she walks around cool laughing on the phone with her friends and I feel like I have a black cloud over my head. I feel weak and I usually a strong willed dude but she affects me even her presence makes me cringe! Like you big liar how could u?? What makes me mad is as good as dad I am to my kid when she gets mad she discredits it because I have to travel in my job. I take care all the bills yet she claims Im lucky shes not like all the other high maintenance girls in the world who spend all their mans money buying gucci, louis vuitton and stuff. What?? I take her shopping, bills in
Answer: From the start you know you made a compromise - also you stress you are strong. Never in the life of the relationship have you shown the strength of character either in taking the decisions for yourself or for your life. Grow up dear and accept the facts - sleeping with 18/19 men and you expect commitment? Just be your real self and do what is to be done. Be strong and stick to your decision - it can not work one sided - and it is no use living in a state of constant pressure. Best of luck.
