Hey Queeny, check my motivation. What do I have to gain? I'll never meet you or even talk to you, except right here on this board. I don't want your money, I'm not trying to get you into my church.
And don't believe me, but search the Bible for yourself, that is where I get my information from. Just as the Bereans were called noble because they searched the Scripture to see if what they were being told was true.

But if you look at the hypocrites, the child molesters and the televangelists asking for money while the watch on their arm costs more than I make all year, well you won't find Scripture that tells them to do that.
So all of that does not discount true Christianity.

Thanks for the defense, Bummee. But it's good to get disagreement out in the open in order to discuss it.
I am not easily offended just because someone disagrees with me. I appreciate the frankness.

Re: Good News


Hey Mel! I have been booted from several places for stating my opinions. Very often simply because folks did not understand that I was not attacking individuals. Only disagreeing with them.

 It looked to me as if you were being attacked personally.

As far as you are concerned, my mind is open. But I do ask questions and I always decide for myself what I want to believe as the truth!

 emoticon Me, too! It kind of defeats the purpose of a message board, don't ya think?

And it's funny, in a way, that a lot of the places I've been banned from claim "tolerance" as a virtue, while being quite intolerant towards my view.

You've got to have differences in opinion or else there is nothing to tolerate! emoticon

Re: Good News


And both of you were wrong. I was not being "vicious" at all. I simply asked a question. How would I know?
You do not have any 'motive' or reason to try to convert me, but I am not the only person you have discussions with.
How do I know you are not on Facebook or Twitter or MySpace....trying to mold those young minds who may have lost they're path.
And yes, I know it's very obvious that you have read and studied the bible and believe it's very words, with your heart and sole.....as you have SAID this to me. Just as those I spoke of before....TOLD they're followers about they're love of the Bible and of the Church and Jesus and God.
I guess what I am saying and I'm not being vicious in any way shape or form.......is that, no matter what you type, we will never really know you. Nor you me.

Re: Good News


Hey Queeny! Please excuse me for snickering a little at your reply.

For now you understand better how I feel when my words are not exactly understood in the way they were meant to be understood.

To be honest I think education and different cultures often color what and how a person expresses himself.

Mel!

Neither one of us know you as far as I know. You seem to be talking more about creation at times then religion.

Scientist are working on this problem every day. It is really mind boggling to stand here and look outward with whatever tools we have to look with and decide that there is no limit to what we can see.

Some day these folks might make an mysterious discovery and be unable to identify it. It would be amusing to me if the local barber should see a photo of this mysterious discovery and exclaim, "This looks like the back of Carl Sagan's head!"

If you recall, Carl Sagan put on a series of TV shows called "Cosmos." I found it to be truly interesting. I would like to watch it once again.

Re: Good News


Well, Queeny, I don't think you're vicious. As I said, I appreciate the frankness and getting right to the point. But I'm not sure how you think I might be taking advantage of you for my own gain on a message board. emoticon

I have no plans to meet you, but who knows? Maybe you'll stalk me. emoticon
I only know you as much as you decide to reveal, and even that may or may not be true. Sometimes you can feel like you know someone, if they've been truthful, through forums such as this. But there is always room for deception, just like in real life. So be careful, and I'll do the same.

And of course you're not the only person I'm talking to about this stuff - it's important, eternity is at stake!

Anyway, if I start asking for money - run! And if anything I state doesn't line up with the Bible, then ignore me, because that is the authority on which I speak.

The difference there darlin'.......is I have not taken that "gripe" to other boards trying to get people to believe my side over Mels.....that is what caused you problems and got you banned.

Just a wee one....nothing serious. Nothing I need talk about. emoticon
And I've had my share of "being banned" too, not looking for any more of that either! Matter of fact I managed to get myself not only banned, but IP banned from a whole HOST . emoticon
