But where is the prediction or prophecy? Seems like its about rain in the bible...
Me thinks whiskeycowboy had a might bit much whiskey on this day
Thank you for trying though... This is why Bible study and discussions are only
meant for the few. When the uninitiated attempt to join in, it just turns into a mockery of intelkectual discussion and is often demoted to mere
thinly veiled ridicule, misunderstandings, and other types of "communication" (if you can call it that) most commonly associated with drunkards and
schoolyard antics. It's almost as bad as when a "fundamentalist 'Christian'" tries to join in
It's too bad there werent more appropriate responses here. I almost feel like its a waste of time to even try, but, I feel that the rain could be
interpreted as a metaphor for "life". As in, those who have the teachings of the Lord in their hearts will live a full life, or will be "full of
life", whereas others will be bitter and empty. Like a dried up husk. Like those who turn to alcohol to have some form of enjoyment because the rest
of life to them is just misery. You can sense it in the tone of Atheists when they attempt to talk down to you when they pretend to understand your
beliefs, when really they spend all of their energy discounting the beliefs of the fundamentalists who are always making us look like crazy idiots.
They chose the easy route. But you can detect such a bitterness in them and its easy to see they are not happy at all. They are happiest when they are
degrading another human being, and that is not true happiness. That is not "life" in my opinion. Just as whiskey boy over here is probably happiest
when sucking down on a bottle and letting the booze take over as if on auto pilot. That's not life either. That's letting the booze live it for you
because you are not happy when you have to live it yourself.
*forgive me Lord, for I have stooped to their level once again. It just angers me so much to see your legacy belittled even though they do not
understand you and so their comments are not truly aimed at you, its the perception of others that they are aimed at you and in this way it still
troubles me and causes me to lash out at them. Please instill in me the wisdom to appropriately address these issues in a more loving and wise way, in
YOUR way, when they arise. Thank you for everything. I shall now meditate on these matters and await your guidance*
