Blue Angel

When we sit and see a person do something and then judge it to be unworthy we are fooling ourselves for we do not know the reason and that person may bring great healing and stand blessed by the light of God.

Clairvoyance I admire the way you don't give up and bring forth the truth.  I give up sometimes and don't waste my time on certain people.  But you'll never know maybe something you've said might help.

 

What light?  What blessing?  How much did you pay for that blessing last year?  52 sundays, plus a few holy days thrown in.  Donations each time?  How much?  How much for the candles?  Every see a preacher in the welfare line?  Ever see one in the unemployment line?  Ever see one "ascend" into heaven?  Used to do it all the time.  Then came science and technology.  All of a sudden, the magic is gone.  When was the last great healer?  Where is the great seual to the Bible?  Something must have happened in the past several thousand years to write about.  Guess all the worthy people had to be around in the beginning; no late comers to the great party.  All the late comers I;ve heard about turned out to be a scam.

Yes NodChewie - Light is what comes out of your eyes when you wake up in the morning and the opposite of darkness.

    emilyg, I avoid nothing in life. But since you asked here are just a couple examples.

    Peggy Vaughan, author of The Monogamy Myth, numbers show that 60% of men, and about 40% of women, will have at least one extramarital affair in their lifetime. However, since she also concludes that accuracy is questionable to some extent, there is no way to be certain. The Kinsey Report stated that 50-60% of middle and upper-income males under the age of 60 had participated in at least one affair, and that 40-50% of women in the same bracket had done so.

    The University of Chicago has published the most conservative statistics, stating that 21.2% of men, and 11.3% of women have had an unfaithful relationship.

    • o 85% of women who feel they have a cheating spouse are correct.
    • o 50% of men who feel they have a cheating spouse are correct.
    • o 70% of married women do not know about their spouses' affair.
    • o 54% of married men do not know about their spouses' affair.

     

    Marital Infidelity Facts

    A 1983 study found that 29 percent of married people under 25 had had an affair with no statistical difference between the number of men and women who chose to be unfaithful to their spouses.

    Another study concluded that by age 40 about 50 to 65 percent of husbands and 45 to 55 percent of wives become involved in an extramarital affair.

    A 1987 study surveyed 200 men and women and found that their affairs lasted an average of two years.

    One study found that 47 percent of wives who were employed full-time and 27 percent of full-time homemakers had been involved in an affair before they were 40 years old.

    Men and women have affairs for different reasons. Research has shown that women seek affairs in order to be loved, have a friend, and feel needed. Men seek affairs for sexual fulfillment, friendship, and fun.

      Sorry Tenaj; nothing you mentioned has anything to do with a blessing; and not all that you mentioned are good things.  Definetly, none of them came from some bibical gibberish. Especially freedom of speech.  When the bibical fanatics had their way, there is no freedom of speech.  Have you forgotten that hearesay was punishable by having your tounge cut out, or hanging?  Have you forgotten that fornication, by a women, was punishable by death; or at the very least, branding with a hot poker?  But it was acceptable for a man to find a whore (anopther blessing from women).  Have you forgtten that women had zero place in society in the bible; even the blessed virgin - verses a non-blessed virgin - only served one purpose.  To procreate and breast feed!  The womans claim to fame is their begatting ability!  NOt my decision, the writers of the bibles decision.  None of billions of women during the old testiment or new testiment did a single thing worthwhile; at least not worth mentioning.  Except to produce men.  Men who did great things and were worth mentioning.  No women ever received an education until the religious fanatics started to loose there domanance.    Even today, the Mormons and Catholics consider women second class people.  Ever seen a femal Rabbi?  Name one prophit who resembled a woman.  Sounds to me like a bunch of sheep need a cause that is on their side.

      No, nothing I have is "blessed," everything I have, I earned, took, or fought for. 

       

       

      Cheers

            Wow - must be a lot of scared 12-and-a- half year old Jewish males running around!  Took. from the beginning of time, until the 1970's!  Wow, thats progression.  Can't believe they got over that thing about Adam playing in Eve's Bush so soon.  Too bad the other fanatics haven't changed their opinion of women.  Say a mere two hundred years earlier.  Fewer women would have been BURNED ALIVE!  Must be something to brag about back at the old monestary; you know the place, where women cannot go - except to clean and service.

              No, nothing I have is "blessed," everything I have, I earned, took, or fought for. 

               

               

               

              Ignorance of the Law does not justify breaking it, nor does ignorance of the bible justify or warrant such statement. There is only one Judge and its not you, I or any other man, woman, or child on this earth. There are man made laws and the law of God. Take your pick!

               

              This is not bible class so I shall let it rest at what I shall prove here.

               

              Clearly, woman was created equal in value to man (Gen. 1:27). Man, however, was inadequate by himself (Gen. 2:18). Alone of all creatures, she was created from man and for man. All others, including man, were created from "dust". Though equal, woman was created with a special role different from man.

               

              Women were at the crucifixion and at the resurrection. It was the women who prepared the spices and oils to anoint the body of Christ. They are the ones who were first at the tomb. It was a woman who first saw and recognized the Savior after his resurrection. When he was raised, Christ entrusted the an- announcement of his resurrection to a woman and she was instructed to, "Go quickly and tell his disciples that he is raised from the dead." See Matthew 28:5-7 and John 20:1- 18.

               

              Paul got the message loud and clear. In Galatians 3:28, the equality of women before God is affirmed: "...there is neither male or female." Paul supported wholly the worth of women and their equality in salvation, but realized that men and women have different roles and different challenges. Though writing that all Christians must submit one to another (Ephesians 5:21), he recognized that women especially are to be subject to their husbands (Ephesians 5:22-24; Colossians 3:18). Similarly, though all Christians are to love one another (Romans 13:8), men especially are to love their wives (Ephesians 5:25).

              Clearly, if we review the whole scope of women in the Scriptures and the history of women in the early church, we must conclude that women are not second class Christians. Far from it!

              It serves men and women to properly understand and respect the intent that God has for women. Are there differences in function? Clearly! But not "superiority" and not "inferiority! " God loves all His children equally.

              Yes, I am a woman. I can pass another human being out through my body! What Can You Do? LOL

              Blessings

                    It has everything to do with the original subject.   I brought up forgiveness.  The religious fanatics brought up mumbo-jumbo about angels, devils, and fearing “Jesus The Illegitimate”.  I bought out valid contradictions to myths, biblical gibberish, and bigotry.  Simple solutioin, stop throwing religious mumbo-jumbo in peoples face and threads like this won't go where they have.

                        This is not bible class so I shall let it rest at what I shall prove here.

                        Clearly, woman was created equal in value to man (Gen. 1:27). Man, however, was inadequate by himself (Gen. 2:18). Alone of all creatures, she was created from man and for man. All others, including man, were created from "dust". Though equal, woman was created with a special role different from man.

                        Not a bible class, then the first thing out of your mind is that "shall" garbage based on the bible.  Looks like a bible class to me.  Typical superstitious babble.  Based on other myths in your favorite fictional book, that special role was obviously two-fold; relief of sexual frustration for man and baring children; oops, I mean begat. In most cases, repeateded incestious begatting.  For years (??) everything was great, pre-begatting and actual begatting.  When done begatting, restart the cycle again.  Then Adam got too carried away and went to that forbidden area.  Really upset the old man; first recorded temper tantrum in history - assuming you buy into the myths.  Man, did he go ballistics - WOW!  Then he got mellow, allowed Cain to murder Able, then run off into the woods so he pre-begat the babe produced through hocus-pocus.  'Course, if it wasn't hocus-pocus, the it was incest.  Cool!  Hillbilly's every where are now standing true to the intended image of his creator.  Hey babe, you're equal to man!  Now get on your back and allow him to accomplish a little pre-begatting.  Then you can begat incestious children.  Get concept.  Obvious NOW isn't buying into it, but a lot of other women are!

                        God loves all His children equally. 

                        Did you miss the part about feeding his children to the lions - so they could be ripped apart, limb by limb, splilling their guts all over the area, then eaten alive?  Did you miss the part about Soddom?  Did you miss the part about Noah?  You accept the premise that genocide of whole races is showing love for his children?  You find it is acceptable to put to death any living creature; because you were having a bad day? 

                        Women were at the crucifixion and at the resurrection. It was the women who prepared the spices and oils to anoint the body of Christ. They are the ones who were first at the tomb. It was a woman who first saw and recognized the Savior after his resurrection. When he was raised, Christ entrusted the an- announcement of his resurrection to a woman and she was instructed to, "Go quickly and tell his disciples that he is raised from the dead. 

                        Lets see if I got this right.  The men are out resting in the open air, women were inside the cave for the cleanup, dishwashing, floor washing, and candle lighting.  Then they're used as runners for the carrying the will of man.  (Wasn't there some lind pebble blocking the door - how did they plan to get in? Oh, another myth, there was not rock!)  She was instructed!  Not, would you please!  Hey you, women, get off your little gold mine and go do my bidding.  The men are the leaders, not you house cleaners, so hop to it!  Now thats equality!  Of course, one would have to buy into the unproven myth to believe that fairy tale.  Unless you're a masochist, and like the concept of sitting around waiting to do the bidding of a man.

                        ... he recognized that women especially are to be subject to their husbands 

                        Now thats the good part.  Guess the rest doesn't matter.  Oh, and when you're done with the cooking, cleaning, and educating of the children, come over here and help me lesson the tension! 

                         

                        All you have "proven" is that superstition and fear is your bases of life.  You proved that you honor a mass murder with sacrifices of additional slaughers.  You proved that you condone incest.  You proved that you thrive on the thought that drowning of any non-believer is the only course of action. You proved that, when provocked, you would have no problem pouring hot lava on children of all ages.  You proved that burning women at the stake, or branding a female fornicator with a hot poker, are actions of a supreme being.  The great part is, you give 10% of what you make to ensure you do not anger your supreme being.  The decendant of those disciples have to love watching the sheep feeding the donation basket.  Steady income, and the benefits of little innocent, virgin, boys!  Hey - modern day Arch-Angeles spreading the seed!  Cool job.  Yep, you've proven you're point.  Thou shalt not be a free thinker; if you do, God will strike you and your children dead!  Make him really mad, and he may burn your little daughter at the stake!  Be sure to buy lots a K-Y Jelly in your sons back-pack; he might run into a priest some day.

                          Pardon me, I was going to comment on this article, but after reading the posts, I am honestly confused about what is being talked about!

                          I'll just leave this one alone; not interested in offending anyone.

                            What I will say is that you have all different sorts of people on this system......too many different kinds to even mention the bible.

                             

                            It is often best not to discuss such a heated topic......creates more friends and less animosity.

                             

                            Good luck to you all,

                              Nor am I Mel , but just one quick comment :

                              The original dialogue was whether or not this particular lady done the right thing by keeping the lottery winnings secret from her husband for 3+ years.

                              Oh, it started out fairly clean, but has digressed into a hateful spewing that needs to die- no one wins these things...
