Charlas Stanley (You've may of heard of him) a pastor is getting his church and anybody he can to pray for our nation, to turn the tide. He said that the rate of our national debt our nation will be like Greece in 18 months, were going to be bankrupted and our nation will be forced to socialism (the government taking full control) What were doing is praying for 140 days for our nation, to turn the tide and changed our ways! The more people involved the more chance we have to healing our dying country. Get as many people as you can involved, get Roxy and all those you believe are christian. Go to www.intouch.org and sign up on the prayer list, click on the banner that says yes I will pray with a picture of him on it. You can watch his message as well if you feel this is a little out there...please get as many people as involved, our nation neads it!!

Thanks again for reading this and let me know if your willing to join! You can click that icon I told you and there should be another that says yes I wll pray for 140 days and you can give your name and email so that the church knows how many are going to be praying!!

Girl4beluga | 443 comments I was commenting on his capitalized HE.

No, i am not sexist. Almighty God is Spirit, and through Jesus Christ, revealed himself bodily as a man. All i'm saying. No other name by which we must be saved.

Girl4beluga | 443 comments It's hard to understand about what you mean. But it seems to me that God would surpass gender. Why would he need a penis?

Spirit does surpass gender; I'm not going to make a farce out of this. Jesus Christ was a human man. A human man is born with a sex organ of a male. His gender shouldn't be in question. Are you arguing biology or psych/sexuality? Lets not be blasphemous. This is a Christian forum, i believe?


message 14: by Girl4beluga (new)

Girl4beluga | 443 comments Well it just seemed weird that you capitalized he as if it was a big deal.


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

yeah.


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

I dont think that was sexiest at all.

Well, HE is capitalized in the bible. When speaking of God, you always put HE or HIM capitalized.


message 19: by Girl4beluga (new)

Girl4beluga | 443 comments Yes because they are talking about God (a proper noun). I mean I capitalize, The Ultimate Truth, Higher Being, Allah, The Other. They are just names for the same thing.


message 20: by Marco (new)

Marco (marcoreads) ??i can't hold my peace, here...Excuse me, huh?
Allah is not the same as our God Jesus Christ. Sue Me.


message 21: by Girl4beluga (new)

Girl4beluga | 443 comments Correct me if I am wrong but the concept of God and Jesus Christ are two different ideas. The trinity is a hard thing to explain. However Allah IS a proper noun and therefor needed to be capitalized. And I have a problem with your wording....of "our God Jesus Christ" as if we own him or he is only for Christians.


message 22: by Marco (last edited Jul 11, 2010 05:04PM) (new)

Marco (marcoreads) Ok then. 3 points here to quickly make...

point 1.)Yes, Allah IS a proper noun; a person, place or thing...sorry if I misunderstood your context.

point 2.)Trinity is like the word Rapture...its not literally in the Word, but the Concept Is.

point 3.)Girl, there is a bibically scriputural concept that suggests if you name the Name of Christ(Jesus), as your Saviour from an Eternal Hell...one is in fact invoking the acknowledgement that HE IS THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE GOD. HE IS THE WORD MADE FLESH.
ALLAH had No Son(redeemer).

Commentary) If we who say we believe all the other peripheral things of the Bible and Do Not accept that Jesus is God then we cannot logically say that we are true Christians, in agreement.
This is a main tenant of our "religion".

Example.) It would be as if a Muslim could express his faith/adoration in Allah yet say also, in the same breath, that he wasn't sure if Mohammed was his prophet & what does it really matter? He can do the rituals of his Religion, but does he have what it takes to know real Peace in life? Is he living the "truth" according to the text of Islam?
Its an non-equatable way of thinking. IMO

In closing.) Pls. don't sow seeds of doubt on a Christian forum, if ur not sure, ask somebody.
Do not be afraid of seeking Godly wisdom.
Asking questions is never wrong.

...But if you are a "rebel" and being "naughty" for a laugh, then a swift rebuke will always find you.

Peaceout

Girl4beluga | 443 comments And I don't have any problem with most religions views on who God(s) is.


message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

what about islam.....what do you think about that religion


message 25: by Girl4beluga (new)

Girl4beluga | 443 comments I have absolutely nothing wrong with it. An amazing culture no doubt. And i will not let a couple of extremist ruin such an old and interesting culture as a whole. Just like I hope that people don't judge Christianity based on a bunch of hillbilly fundis.


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

do u believe that all religions lead to heaven?


message 27: by Girl4beluga (new)

Girl4beluga | 443 comments I believe that a belief in the Other leads straight to heaven but mostly I believe that living a good life is what matters most.


message 28: by [deleted user] (new)

you really don't like fundamenatlists, do you


message 29: by Girl4beluga (last edited Jul 12, 2010 09:16PM) (new)

Girl4beluga | 443 comments I just see how sometimes people with a good heart and good intentions ruin peoples lives.


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

i don't think that's a reason to not like them......muslims ruin ppls lives too and your fine with it


message 31: by Girl4beluga (new)

Girl4beluga | 443 comments no!!!!! I have everything wrong with extremists just like I do lituralists. I was just trying to be polite. Do you really think all Muslims are ruining people's lives. And if you want my personal opinion about fundis I will give it to you.


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

ok just to define my terms....when i said muslims i meant extremists, also called jihadists.
yes please. i would like to hear ur opinion


message 33: by Girl4beluga (new)

Girl4beluga | 443 comments I have everything wrong with people who take theological documents literal.....like, jihadists, creationists, and fundis. Because i haven't seen one good thing come out of it....all I see is a bunch of ignorant kids who don't know a thing about science, a lot of people ruining my friends lives just because of things they can't control, and mostly a bunch of judgmental people who just love hating people.


message 34: by [deleted user] (last edited Jul 12, 2010 09:40PM) (new)

have you ever thought about the good things that come out of them? hospitals, orphanages, soup kitchens, charities, donation stores were all created by christians, and i can bet a lot that some of them were fundementalists and creationists


message 35: by Girl4beluga (new)

Girl4beluga | 443 comments abortion bombings, crusades, witch burnings, anti-gay rights, Pat Robertson, taking Thomas jefferson out of textbooks, abstinence only programs, and tainting good science with literal interpretations of biblical passages. I have nothing wrong with Christianity but I in no right want to be associated with the concepts behind the ideas and more.


message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

abortions? bombings? where did you get these? you still think witch burning is going on? creationism is the most sound belief in science! research it! it has answers to tons of things evolution can't answer.


message 37: by Girl4beluga (new)

Girl4beluga | 443 comments No....but they did happen because of what????? Lituralism. Creationism is based off a 4,000 year old theological book that wasn't to be taken literal anyway. If you would take five minutes and think about it you would understand why evolution makes sense. It is not 110% but nothing in life is. Evolution is made to answer the question on how life formed on Earth...That's it and in the same way it is not mutually exclusive to the idea of an Ultimate Being.


message 38: by [deleted user] (new)

how did abortion come out of lituralism? and how do you blame bombings on fundimentalists?
not just the bible makes creationism true.....just looking at the world, plants, animals, the complex human body, stars, planets and the whole universe, you can tell that a creator had to make it....it couldn't just have evolved.

Girl4beluga | 443 comments http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abortion...

Abortion bombings.




why not? Maybe we need a topic for science so we can discuss science and religion and how they fit together.


message 40: by [deleted user] (new)

message 42: by [deleted user] (new)

message 43: by Girl4beluga (new)

Girl4beluga | 443 comments good.....sorry maybe i wasn't clear enough.


message 44: by [deleted user] (new)

message 45: by Girl4beluga (new)
