...and that is the birth of the resistance that promulgates into ever expandable divisions between potentiality and 'actuality' at any levels...theists erect the white picket fence, and atheists stand before it, shouting 'I am not an animal-ingrate-sinner'...the free-for-all keeps the fence erected and maintained (regardless of the miniscule spaces that do divide).
Both theists and atheists can have wooden heads - ready, able and willing to conk in some form of tommy-knocker game...interesting to note is that many theists (some on this board) are not in essence saying things that contradict (and vice-versa)...the discussions fall to details...Is there a devil? What is the soul? Can you sell it? What are the consequences?
I'm replying less and less, because, intrinsically the same things are being posited from different sides of that fence...I can't (don't want to) speculate on the reason/s for that?! Maybe a good thing, maybe not...Å99
And the whole time WarminIndy is just saying there are things in this universe that we probably shouldn't mess with.
As fun as it is setting the Big Wheel on the roof, sliding down into the swimming pool in the yard below...it's probably not a good idea to do so.
I don't understand what VHB is talking about in the Hertz and wavelengths...but A99, I understand you better. If you were on the roof with your Big Wheel, I would probably send dad up the ladder to get you. But hey, I'm a middle-aged woman, I see things like that. Call it mother instinct, even though I don't have children, so I have to vicariously be a mom. I hope that is ok.
Thanx for the concern WII, I may in fact be older than you...but, in essence I would agree with your opening statement...speaking for myself, all this selling your soul to satan business is waaay beyond childish, and promoting it in a backhanded way is not a help in the least...it is more of the 'let's find reasons to hate', rather than the 'love conquers all' frequency...I would posit that VHB (if I may be so bold) would agree.
I would not write anything that I do not have direct experience with. Yes, correct, they can reveal themselves. I am speaking of granting wishes and the such, of fame, money, etc. It will only be allowed if Father grants it. When said something is granted, many will step in and try to take credit, hence others believing it is said other entity granting.I agree, man gives them their power via way of belief.
But some people don't fear Satan, they love being Satanists and being inspired by the demons. And for people who "play" with demons some people like the fear.
