Since you can't have a religion without some sort of bible, I guess it's better to associate yourself with the group of people who read the same bible you do. Of course, it helps if you all start on the same page. :typ:

You are so so right Pattypink and it is good to have fellowship here with nice godfearing people like you and Amy cause there sometimes arnt very many of us I think.

Sometimes I think that all the liberals and drivebymedias that the smart radio and Fox TV men warn us about just want to kill our holy saviour Jesus Christ all over again like the Jews even though they maybe the evil Romans were kind of like the aileens that made them be terrorists even way back then long ago huh?

I liked that pixture of the frogmen that looked like a swatteam in the water under the east Lexington dam so maybe they really did practicing like I said they should to learn how to do really dangerouse things better and fasster than all the aileens. I sure hope so caus we dont' need no fingers and toes falling off us from the aileens leopardsy.

Satan's spawn???

Postby PattyPink » 2007 Sep 13 17:34

Harleygrl35--who told you that liberals are satan's spawn? True, some of them could be but I have met some who were very nice people. :lol:

On the other hand, if liberals are Satan's Spawn...what are conservatives? God's chosen...no, I think that is what the Isrealites were called. Maybe we need to come up with a name for ourselves. :wink:

Sweetness 'n Light--If Fox TV is warning us that there is a plot to kill Jesus Christ, then they must have missed the explanation that He lives eternally and eternal can't be killed. At least, that is what I believe. :)

Back to the topic....Bibles and Religion

Postby PattyPink » 2007 Sep 14 18:16

Personally I think that if we consider ourselves Christians who should follow the example of the Man who leads the way...Jesus Christ was baptised by immersion, therefore I feel that I should follow his example.

He also taught that we should love one another as He has loved us. I try to do that too. I am just glad He didn't tell me I had to LIKE everyone. Loving people is easy--liking them is harder.

If I cut my hair...some say I'm going to H--L;

If I don't want to get my head wet...no problem, there is a congregation that will sprinkle;

If I want to clap my hands and dance to the music...there's a congregation that will make me welcome;

If I want to marry someone who uses my curling iron and makeup...I'm sure there is a group that will welcome us.

Unfortunately there are so many denominations that have their own interpretation of the commandments that it was hard to say which one was right.

So, what did I do? I think the clearest instructions were found in the Book of James...and since I did lack wisdom, I asked God in faith and He answered my prayers.

In my opinion, besides the sermon on the mount, James is perhaps the best outline for the Christian life found anywhere in the scriptures. Interesting that he says religion the Father considers faultless is "taking care of widows and orphans in their distress and keeping oneself unspotted from the world." Christians and churches pontificate well about the "unspotted" part. Embracing the entire notion, however, seems lost on many who prefer Sunday morning entertainment rather than getting their hands dirty and interrupting their otherwise harried lives.

For those like me who fail miserably, its comforting to know his mercies are new every morning. I just wish we Christians could communicate his love and grace as well as we proclaim his law and vengeance.

James presents a profound standard in his writing most of us will likely never live up to. Perhaps that's why Martin Luther ripped the pages of this epistle from his Bible. Grace is a much more palatable concept to digest for those so accustomed to failure like myself.

who can't be baptised?

Postby PattyPink » 2007 Sep 20 17:50

Sweetness n/Light said that the jews, negroes, arabs, and aliens can't be baptised. I couldn't find any doctrine that prohibits baptism for anyone who is willing to take upon themselves His name and a desire to follow His path. Maybe those pages were ripped from the King James version I use when I have questions.

beckonwood,
I find myself fighting a constant battle to avoid trying to remove the speck from another's eye while the rather large log impairs my own vision. At least I've matured enough to recognize the dynamic tension in reconciling my selfish desires with doing what is right. There was a time in my life when doing the right thing wasn't on my radar screen. Those "fun" times, however, caused much pain for many people. God can and does forgive, but it doesn't mean we won't face the music in the here and now. Even though I know what he wants me to do, I still find myself often descending down the road of "ungraciousness." It is certainly the path of least resistance in the short term even for those who know better. What a poor example it must be for those who don't share our faith and are seeking something more meaningful in their own life. Thank God that his grace is sufficient to cover my poor witness and account for dispensing his gospel in the wrong ways.

Now isn't that a good question. I wonder how many people in our very strange American culture, hyped with religiosity as no other country in the western world, are brave enough to answer it honestly?
