OK. How do you determine what's to be taken literally or not? Only if someone specifically says, "this is a parable?" Many of the Bible stories don't come out and say that but it's obvious that the *underlying meaning* is more important than whether it actually occurred!
It's always hard to watch those you love and respect behaving stupidly. My Inlaws have their quirks, some of which really get right up my nose. But I can't bring it up because I am younger and I'm the evil Son In Law. My Wife can't do it because they powdered her butt and are therefore not interested in her opinions about money.
I know you are not supposed to inflame an issue but sometimes I just cannot help my self and become an agitator and getting the discussion going.
LGBT are only saying that we expect *equal* civil rights, CC.
Tell someone who cares. I do not.
I did not make that claim. I dare you to find the quote or any utterance close to it.
I never mentioned the poor or money but the religious are the PT Barnum of misdirection and slight of hand. I'd help you in a time of need regardless of your typical condescending religious nature.
I was never interested in becoming Mormon, just curious and had an interest in learning about it. I get on "binges", start reading, and am sort of unable to stop.
What if there is an immortal being who is not concerned with "passing" eternity?
The voters just gave the liberals a complete evaluation of the last 15 years.
Dear Mr Trump u have to be prepare cuz u have offend Kim already with the nuclear weapons so u can b bomb in Singapore
Yes, I can. I judge everyone, including gods, by their actions, by what they do, and how they treat people. Your god doesn't come out too well based on that evaluation, and I don't have one.
I like the ancient proverb:
The sudden passing of my father was both shocking and traumatic but I had to pull myself together to handle the details of his funeral and will because my mom was shellshocked. My anxiety spiralled out of control but I went into my ?nursing mode? and shoved everything into a box to deal with after the crisis was over. It took 2 weeks and then I completely blew up and had a meltdown but everything was taken care of and sorted out.
Technically, both are kids. ; )
My dad let the JoHo's in once and they were harder to get rid of then Ronco Record Club. I read all their books and didn't join. Now I deprogram. Your wife should just flat out tell them she will never join and they are barking up the wrong tree. Good luck.
I wouldn't know anything about punk rock bands, but still accept my apologies.
So jesus didn't die for all my sins but only some of them? Which ones?
Sentence commutation of a first time offender for a non-violent crime who as been a model prison for two decades.
They are talking about the founding patriarch of this new religion, and the establishment of a spiritual foundation on earth centered on the spirit of the "One God" that the patriarch was meeting and communing with in his mind. The folks likely called that patriarch "God", too, because he was seen as channeling something very high, something that gave spiritual life to folks, the "spirit of God". Its strictly religious stuff and has nothing to do with the literal creation of the Universe or something.

And Mexican Oatmeal Soup has what exactly to do with Cherokees?
I'm not arguing with you. I'm simply saying that I probably misunderstood you initial comment. Also, I have little interest in perusing whatever it was that you were attempting to say.
You are getting Patience.
