Well no one trying to make you look the fool. No intention. Let's agree to that it is both a state of being and an emotion for the sake of argument.
It is still deeply debated on whether it is or isn't you will notice that women can turn love off not only the expression of love but its emotional
affect on themselves. This has been seen by many men whose wives suddenly up and say I love you no more. It is very easily dependent on their mood,
but it is an attribute that is a bond for Humans. I was still not wrong in attributing a human attribute to God, but we are his expressed image so I
accept your correction of me in that.
A metaphor may be used in a sentence and section of writing but in using it a s closing salutation it cannot be a metaphor. Godspeed can mean, god
goes with you, Go quickly in god's protection, go with god, may god be with you etc etc etc. But it literally means God's Speed which is faster than
Are you speaking of God the Lord Almighty or of some other god?
There are metaphors in the preserved Bible in English, but not as many as to say, all word's, in this case God's words, are nothing more than
metaphors to express the ineffable, that they be difficult to express in clear words. God's preserved words that we can hold in our hands are not
ineffable in the least. They are pure words, true words, simple words that make the simple wise unto salvation. They are proven words, they are
strong words and eternal words.
A metaphore is a "figure of speech" containing an implied comparison
, in which a word or phrase ordinarily and primarily used of one thing is
applied to another, So in this case using the word barking, in your use of a metaphor you just compared me to a dog, at which I am utterly insulted.
Beware that every idol word we are to be judged by, unless of course your judgment has already taken place as mine has, in which case only God can
correct me if I have said wrong. And likewise for you if the same be true for I cannot judge your heart except by your words and vise versa. So I let
the insult flow off me like water off the ducks back (oh look a true metaphor) and I being the duck.
It obviously has contributed substance to the thread as it merited your reply, and a harsh one at that, for one so, metaphorically speaking,
The coldest hand, is that of the one, who in your dire do spreadeth words against ones head, as a dandelion flourishes her seed.
Good day my friend.
