Roger that, dallas!

And AMEN!

The Left kicked God outta the schools and public places and I guess we're next.

They don't even wanna hear the mention of His Holy Name.

But The Word was made flesh and His Name is Jesus!

I'm here to testify.

In no way am I against God or the mention of "His Holy Name" 

She said she would thank God. I didn't ask who would you thank did I? I asked who would you tell first and why?

Anyway, if you're a religious person and believe that God is all-knowing then why would you have to tell/thank him anyway? He'd already know because he did it. Also, what makes you stand out from the millions of other devout hard-working Christians who play the lottery? You're thanking him for favoring you over everyone else who prayed for the same thing? I thought he was supposed to be fair and just...?

 

LET ME BE CLEAR HERE

I'm looking for answers that have to do with physical beings that you can touch, smell, hear, and see. Not spiritual ones.

I don't want to step on any fragile toes by offending you or your beliefs.

Maybe next time I'll be more specific in my original post.

      No No   What harm to you if she believes? Yet you would harm her with your words.

       

      Hebrews 11:1  Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

       

      After I have thanked God for such a blessing and pray for his guidence down the right path, I would then call a lawyer to handle the claiming, an estate lawyer to minimize taxes, a wealth manager to make sure the funds grow, and a CPA to keep the IRS at bay and the others in line. Somewhere in there, once I know my options, then I'll tell my grown kids and my parents, then my sisters.

      Amen Piaceri!

           My favorite quip regarding prayer:

           

           "George Bush says he speaks to god every day, and christians love him for it. If George Bush said he spoke to god through his hair dryer, they would think he was mad. I fail to see how the addition of a hair dryer makes it any more absurd." - Sam Harris

            Seriously????  Since you decided to bring politics into the discussion at least President Bush has beliefs unlike Hussein. Maybe if Hussein was a Christian his administration wouldnt be labled the worst since Nixon.

            I would rather have a President that has Conservative Christian Values than a liberal/non believer.

              "In no way am I against God or the mention of "His Holy Name"

              Hmmm... coulda fooled me. 

               

              "She said she would thank God."

              Indeed, which is her prerogative. 

               

              "I didn't ask who would you thank did I?"

              Who cares what you asked?

              Nobody.

              Get over it. 

               

              "I asked who would you tell first and why?"

              Why do you put a question mark at the end of a declarative sentence?

               

              "Anyway, if you're a religious person and believe that God is all-knowing then why would you have to tell/thank him anyway?"

              Dallas already told you - Ephesians 5: 20.

               

              "He'd already know because he did it."

              Did what?

               

              "Also, what makes you stand out from the millions of other devout hard-working Christians who play the lottery?"

              A three foot beard.

              Oh, and I'm told that I'm very dashing. 

              Why do you ask?

               

              "You're thanking him for favoring you over everyone else who prayed for the same thing?"

              Who said anything about praying for anything?  Here's a clue ---------> only you.

              We thank Him for everything.

              If you don't like that, well, that's just too bad.

              Ain't it?

               

              "I thought he was supposed to be fair and just...?"

              Just? Oh, He is. And you may rue the day you doubt it.

              And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

              And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty: just and true are thy ways, thou King of Saints.

              -Revelation 15: 2-3

               

              "LET ME BE CLEAR HERE"

              Oh, don't worry, you're exceedingly clear.

              I can read you like a book.

               

              "I'm looking for answers that have to do with physical beings that you can touch, smell, hear, and see."

              You want to smell the answers? Does your computer have smell-o-vision?

              Well ok, if you insist: Pfffffffffffffffffttttttt!!!

              There, how was that?

               

              "I don't want to step on any fragile toes by offending you or your beliefs."

              Oh, don't worry about that even though it's a lie.

              As much as you'd like Christians to be fragile and wish they were, don't worry, we're not fragile.

              At all.

              You can spout all your Christian-hating nonsense just like every other progenitor of your ilk that comes calling with the earth-shaking news that God doesn't fit your model so he doesn't exist.

               

              "Maybe next time I'll be more specific in my original post."

              That might be a good idea, numbnuts.

              Have a nice day.

                  Your favorite prayer quip, huh?

                  Mr Harris doesn't have ears to hear. Neither do you.

                  One day you and Mr Harris may not find President Bush speaking to God so funny.

                   

                  Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

                   -Matthew 13: 9

                   

                   Because it is given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

                  -Matthew 13: 11

                   

                  Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not: and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

                   -Matthew 13: 13-16

                   

                   I hope someday you and Mr Harris open your hearts.

                  But it's your right to do as you wish.

                  I'll be sticking with the Man who took the nails for me.

                  Regardless of anybody's "quips."

                              Your favorite prayer quip, huh?

                              Mr Harris doesn't have ears to hear. Neither do you.

                              One day you and Mr Harris may not find President Bush speaking to God so funny.

                               

                              Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

                               -Matthew 13: 9

                               

                               Because it is given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

                              -Matthew 13: 11

                               

                              Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not: and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

                               -Matthew 13: 13-16

                               

                               I hope someday you and Mr Harris open your hearts.

                              But it's your right to do as you wish.

                              I'll be sticking with the Man who took the nails for me.

                              Regardless of anybody's "quips."

                              I Agree!
