Hi friends,

Does it matter what label you carry in your life? One can claim a thousand times he might be this or that, you are either a believer, or you aren't. That's how our Ruler distinguished humanity, and it will always be so.

So why go shouting you're a catholic, or a jew, or a christian? God is blind to such statements.

All He sees are believers and non-believers.




Spirit with you, be blessed!

My voice will forever be with you!

It's not that 'cut & dry'. It's more complicated than that. There is a big area in the middle, between those↑two.

Also, some people change. Some believers turn into non-believers. Some non-believers turn into believers. (and possibly even multiple times, for some)

the bible says "faith without works is dead"
you're hinging this on whether someone "believes" (in God) or not... is that all that's required? ..just belief?

what if one believes, but doesn't obey?

there's a quote from the bible that comes to mind.. "the tree is known by the fruit" ..so yeah, we can 'claim' we're this or that.. but in the end, if our actions don't square up with those claims.. we're just full of #..

Of course it doesn't matter what you label yourself, but usually when you do label yourself, you are alienating yourself from other people. Alienation causes separation and separation causes hate and hate causes war and war causes death.

There is a reason why religion promotes throwing a label on yourself, they want you to feel superior to others and when you feel superior you start to hate. Religion cares nothing about unity, they only care about creating confusion, blindness, hate, and DEATH (spiritual and physical).

There's not very much meat or context in your thread, so I can see why it's not "raining" stars and flags here. If you want stars and flags, put a little more effort into your posts. Not a knock on you, just a little advice.


I'll be nice and give you a S&F though. I'm in a good mood today.

Amen to that!

Did it feel good to get that out?

Question:
What religion are you, if you believe in any?

Political systems and institutionalized religion are pernicious instruments of division. Yet at the same time, the 'herd mentality' works to keep the affiliated members in a 'partisan mindset' under the authority of a quasi-reputable leader(s) while 'otherization' is used to justify the marginalization of unaffiliated members.

And to lighten the mood a little...




I was down at the New Amsterdam staring at this yellow-haired girl
Mr. Jones strikes up a conversation with this black-haired flamenco dancer
She dances while his father plays guitar
She's suddenly beautiful
We all want something beautiful
I wish I was beautiful
So come dance this silence down through the morning
Cut Maria! Show me some of them Spanish dances
Pass me a bottle, Mr. Jones
Believe in me
Help me believe in anything
I want to be someone who believes

Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales
Stare at the beautiful women
"She's looking at you. Ah, no, no, she's looking at me."
Smiling in the bright lights
Coming through in stereo
When everybody loves you, you can never be lonely

I will paint my picture
Paint myself in blue and red and black and gray
All of the beautiful colors are very very meaningful
Grey is my favorite color
I felt so symbolic yesterday
If I knew Picasso
I would buy myself a gray guitar and play

Mr. Jones and me look into the future
Stare at the beautiful women
"She's looking at you.
Uh, I don't think so. She's looking at me."
Standing in the spotlight
I bought myself a gray guitar
When everybody loves me, I will never be lonely

I want to be a lion
Everybody wants to pass as cats
We all want to be big big stars, but we got different reasons for that
Believe in me because I don't believe in anything
and I want to be someone to believe

Mr. Jones and me stumbling through the barrio
Yeah we stare at the beautiful women
"She's perfect for you, Man, there's got to be somebody for me."
I want to be Bob Dylan
Mr. Jones wishes he was someone just a little more funky
When everybody loves you, son, that's just about as funky as you can be

Mr. Jones and me staring at the video
When I look at the television, I want to see me staring right back at me
We all want to be big stars, but we don't know why and we don't know how
But when everybody loves me, I'm going to be just about as happy as can be
Mr. Jones and me, we're gonna be big stars..

The Father judges on intentions. In order to believe in anything you must have faith first, real faith.

Stars and Flags for God!!!!!111

Bloody heathens, innit.

I rekon the confusion surrounding you is intense, angle. You have to get validation for your thoughts, yet when you fail to receive the expected responses you throw your arms up, and blame the people.

Why does god need so much hard work done for people to be nice?

Oh, he does? So when you cross the street to get your cat, what are you judged exactly for? Do you mean something like "instant karma"?

All goes well for one who judges righteous.

Were you part of Eve eating that apple? If not, then apply the same logic you just used on me in that situation.
