So sayeth the zealot.
Great for lighting charcoal with a chimney. No lighter fluid smell.
Nope, if God would stop the silly hide and seek game, and actually suit up and show up, people would all know this God whether he helped or not. That has and never will happen because God only lives in peoples imagination. This certainly explains the convenient hide and seek game, created by believers to make sense out of nonsense.
I can see both sides of this. What's problematic to me is that we don't hear the perspective of the student in the video.
The thief on the cross.
No, that is not what it means. I did not say the whole body lost. Just the minimal few idiots who advance articles of impeachment. Really! you should do a little bit of research about subjects you try to comment on.
He's gonna flip and send the entire corrupt DNC to prison, where they belong.
The Ford plan is only a change of course if you think "spend more! faster!" is a significant change.
You're trying to box people's views, but those boxes are revealing inadequate to the task.
Especially in Psalm 5:5, "(god) hates all evildoers." that would be you wouldn't it Lois? I'm still trying to understand why you believe Jesus came for gentiles when he states in Matthew 10:5-6 an 15:24 he only came for the lost sheep of the house of Israel. You worship a mortal who doesn't offer you salvation.
I'd pound that.
Does your wife not work? It may be an issue where she really wanted to find the house dirtier than it was so she can be like "What would you do without me?" and feel like she is really needed. Since you didn't leave any real work to do she has to be loud about doing it to get attention for putting in "a lot" of work to clean up after you...If she doesn't work or she's someone who makes a big deal about the lengths she goes to to take care of you etc. by having the house very clean, she may feel like you're stepping on her toes and she wants to feel she has an important purpose. So she has to make it like there is some deeper level of cleaning you don't understand. There's a really good book called "Games people play" that gives a lot of insight into these type reactions that on the surface seem illogical. I think now you can even find the PDF versions free online. Otherwise maybe you just did a really shyt job lol
Thanks for another thoughtful comment, greenpeace. I?ve enjoyed the dialogue. I generally stick to original sources, but Bergson is one whose original work I?ve never read (much of). I have a couple books of his sitting on my Kindle, but haven?t gotten around to them. This convo is getting him back onto my to-read list. I think you might like him quite a bit. He was a philosophy star for a minute in the early 20th century, but then quickly fell out of fashion as he rose to prominence about the same time as Einstein?s general relativity took center-stage. He famously debated Einstein about whether time or space is primary, with (of course) Einstein arguing for space. ?The world? agreed with Einstein and Bergson was basically forgotten. But he has made a comeback, and obviously with his emphasis on time, he fits nicely with process philosophy and theology. He also fits kind of perfectly with your earlier comments about ?wave mechanics? and the ?hologram model.? Some years ago, I read a book by a guy named Stephen Robbins called ?Time and Memory: A primer on the scientific mysticism of consciousness? in which he used Bergson?s conception of consciousness to posit a combination of those ideas. Basically, he asserts that Bergson thought of the brain as what we might now call a ?modulated reconstructive wave? passing through a holographic field, in terms of how we perceive and construct our experience of reality. You might find Bergson (and Robbins) very pertinent to your approach. Again, I haven?t read Bergson and obviously he wrote long before the hologram was a glint in anyone?s eye, so I don?t know how directly his language (or its translation into English) conforms to the framework in which Robbins presents his views.

Probably like there are those today. Billboards and the likes. Evangelicals, Muslims, etc, on street corners. Door knockers . Fanatics that blow themselves up amongst others. Driving Cars and Lorries into crowds etc. But this Jesus ( YESHUA ) got himself crucified, he sure had impact one way or another. Sedition? ?? ?? ??
Greed for Power control , money, the ego of the pastor. Many find the temptation to speak as God instead of speaking of God to be irresistible.
To me as a Humanist and an ex-believer, the benefit of knowing actual historical truth about Christian origins and the social and cultural environment in which Christianity arose is that we can better understand the circumstances that create new religions and bring small, radical cults into the mainstream. Knowing the truth about history beats everyone just believing whatever they want every time.
Not quite. He's been very open about his compassion for gay people but at the same time, he's made it clear that he does not intend to change church doctrine and opposes allowing gays to attend seminary.
Why I posted fetus and you've denied that outright. Posting the definition would be ignored by you. Waste of time at this point.
So you're saying it's real then.
There are plenty of people who had no parents that didn't become rapist/wife beaters. Interesting how your compassion goes straight to him and not to his victims.
Here's the rub, we rarely see the responsible gun owners condemning this type of irresponsible behavior (or, at the most, a quick tongue lashing with zero consequence or follow-up). Just scroll down, I see everything from blaming the child, to blaming the parents, to blaming Democrats...blaming basically everyone except the individual who LEFT A LOADED GUN UNATTENDED IN A PUBLIC PLACE.
