the only god i recognize and serve and seek to draw near to is named YAHWEH " The Great I AM" self identified so to moses long long ago.
YEHWEHS Messiah sent Son Yesh'wa is my model and my teacher but i confess im a often stupid student.
as far as a persons politics goes- they shape a persons heart and from there hearts well-store comes forth its spiritual state evidenced by the persons free will words spoken.
imho the only thing worse then hate inspiring/ affirming spoken words often spoken by super paid spokes folks like those i sighted in my recent posting -
i " making believe" free speech is an exemption to hate / fear / war mongering words rule " IT IS WHAT COMES FROM OUT MOUTH THAT DEFILES US"...
did i defile my self in my posting? yes i did a bit and i pray to " spiritually wash it off soon" if i have not already-
but my conscious was raised at that mans passing's to sound a call to REMEMBER AND BE MINDFUL of what had been said, is being said and why they are saying such as they do.
in works/ efforts to sow fear and hate and encourage/ endorse greed and wantonness as american verturs so they are not recognized as the spiritual cancers that they truly are.
thanks for your comment
What I always look for is God in man. no matter his politics. For the SOUL has no political favorites, nor hate for any man.
of course you see what you see because of the filters that you free willed to put on-
i have read your unkind views of the ows protesters whom i consider to be the holiest of modern day warriors doing peaceful NON VIOLENT battle agenst the forces of modern day mallic, super greed and all the evil fruit that comes from those purest evils namely HUMAN SUFFERING/ INNOCENTS SUFFERINGS directly related to "increased profits and prosperity"!
im guessing you took personal offense at my prayer for mr brightbarts soul be paid in full for what his living voice had caused doing so at the will of his and his elks financial masters-
im sorry you turned your heart that way and planted that foul crop there-
but free will is free will and we shall all reap what it is that we have sown
and i myself am looking foreword to what my crop yields to and for My Savior Brother and His New Covenant Way of faithful love.
U might be right..If one seeks to spread hate because of politics your purpose has never really changed course as much as it is now more visible
I thank you Peter for sharing with me about your past . We are all God's children and he does so love us . I think you have a compassionate spirit I pray for an understanding of all that is . There are so many who suffer because of evils done to them . Have a good day . Marie
your very welcome...
but just so that my view is clear- i do not agree pain is good in any way except as a signal to us that we are doing something that we need to stop doing.
i understand that we human being are complex beings and that sometime our wiring goes awry-
but that is a different matter.
i hope your had a lovely pain-free birthday and that all your days are without suffering of any kind.
Thank you for your birthday wishes .
i do however disagree with your view that " pain is/ can be good"
I am Christian . When I read the Psalms prayers of ancient peoples I am see all of us in I their prayers They talk about their pain and it is offered to God .
I do get medical attention when needed but there are times when science can't take away pain . Jesus suffered for all of us and I offer my sufferings to him . Marie
sorry you feel that way Peter...Sad that your heart missed the concept
elis what you say the catholic church taught you about original sin and what i was taught by them are very different indeed.
I have learned thru the Roman Catholic Church that original sin was made null at Calvary by Christ's death on the cross. We grow in such blessing thru the sacraments, usually beginning with Baptism, then Confirmation. All other sin except blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is granted forgiveness thru the sacrament of Penance.
The Resurrection is icing on the cake.
