Sticks and stones and crosses.
Firstly yes the spiritual war is real and it has to do with sin, and how close you get to knowing the father
through Jesus. Ive experienced it mentally and physically worse than ever after recieving communion.
You've experienced a war mentally and physically, only you cannot see it happening... right.
Secondly, yes I thought about suicide a hlaf decade ago, and this was well before I ever heard of jesus. He saved my life from that death and
caused me to feel suicidal.
Thinking and attempting are two different things. I attempted suicide AS a Christian, but it's never been a thought to me as a Buddhist.
Thirdly a chemical imbalance is insane.
No, it causes insanity.
Because I have an anxiety disorder myself, and pills dd not do the trick, infact studies show they actually cause more depression.
Wrong, studies show that ANTI-DEPRESSANT pills make disorders such as Bipolar Disorder worse, quite often. Anti-Depressants may or may not help those
who are simply depressed, but for those who have mood disorders, anti-psychotics and anti-convulsants (lamactal, seroquel) DO do the trick. At least
with Whitney they do, anyway. Oh, but I guess they actually do not, even though they do, because you say so.
chemical imbalance probably comes from our eating habit, but the big medicine corporations get tons of money off of this chemical imbalance by
creating something that does not
work, instead of getting to the route of the problem naturally and spiritually.
Who gives a damn where chemical imbalance (that is, in the brain) comes from. And yes, the pharmacies do get a lot of money - because their products
do work. If your impression that mood stabilizers do not work is based on personal experience, I'm sorry to inform you that medications work
differently for different people. They work with Whitney. I can see it, she can see it - our entire family can see it - but I guess we're all wrong,
because YOU say so.
It's undeniable that having a steady spiritual connection to WHATEVER one chooses to worship has a great deal to do with the healing process, but it
is NOT the only medium for it.
Your ignorance is amazing. Ive seen so many miracles of God throughout my family alone that I know he exist.
I'm ignorant because I believe differently from you, sure, [sarcasm] I see the logic behind that [/sarcasm].
You ca pray to a statue and see where it gets you,
I'm the ignorant one, am I? I don't "pray" to Siddhartha, dolt - because he was not a god. I'm glad to see that you are such an authority on
You can pray to a dead, Liberal Jew and see where it gets you, and wear a symbol of death across your neck...
Oh, and I will continue, thank you very much. I'm amazed, I've finally found a bible-beater who gives me his permission to follow a faith that I
but I think you just hate the fact that God has rules that is for our own good and perfection of our spirit that will cause us to not only be
obedient to him but have the
exact opposite attitude you have wich is that of a venomous snake. Not you, your attitude.
I have no moral problems, if that's what you're referring to. I believe I mentioned it earlier - in my own honest opinion, I follow the "Ten
Commandments" more closely than most Christians do, unintentionally! I'll explain, if you like, someday.
My attitude is one of sketpicism. Your attitude is one of conformity. You are happy with your attitude, I am happy with mine. I have merely pointed
out why I do not believe in much that is taught by the Bible (praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!).
I've also pointed out that faith and
prayer are not necessary for the healing process, but they can help - but also, medications can, also (I guess morphine doesn't work, either.)
Personally, I think Christianity is a total crock. You can think what you like (you obviously do, thinking Buddhists "pray to a statue.")
I hope your wife will be alright.
She's fine, now - thanks to the doctors and medication, not God. I appreciate your concern though - if indeed it is anything beyond superficial.
"...good luck with the Apocalypse. Oh, and by the way: you SUCK!"
