Great quotes everyone, thanks so much. For the immediate need I am going to use "The spirit of the true God is in man’s heart. ... We live in God and God dwells in us." because it fits the person's situation perfectly, but all these quotes I will use in further communications with others w...

Does anyone know of a quote from the Papers that this painting could illustrate? It was done by a friend of mine from the famous painting by Norman Rockwell of his self-portrait, and I thought it was a beautiful illustration. Thanks!

Rich, you have not been censored - you were only asked to address the topic that you yourself started. You refused to do so. The thread is still visible to anyone. Do you want to make a new discussion using the passages you have quoted here? mary jo enjoys her forum. 71:2.14 Security of property. N...

Thanks FanofVan for the good quotes and I am, of course, in agreement although I think perhaps I didn't make myself clear in my question. It's the image of angels with swords and armor fighting Satan and his demons, etc. etc. and the Onward Christian Soldiers type of ideal that I question, although ...

In my Christian past the folks I fellowshipped with often referred to and glamourized "The Christian Warrior" image. I preached it myself, wrote songs about it and made music videos promoting it. However because of the transformation of my mentality and spirit after encountering The Uranti...

pethuel says above: "My only objection to what appears to me to be arguing and bickering is that the Master never set that example for us, and since you are a teacher you have a heightened responsibility to accurately reflect Jesus' sample..."

Busted! Sorry for that comment!

Bradly, I am all for the Jesusonian gospel, and all for setting the facts straight concerning the fallacies of Judeo-Christian dogma and doctrines. And the word repentance definitely rings of that when I hear it or read it. My only objection to what appears to me to be arguing and bickering is that ...

When one chooses to seek the Father, makes a definite conscious choice to seek spiritual truths instead of mundane materialism, there is a new focus, a new direction and new goals. The former life is left behind, much like the caterpillar's cocoon as the butterfly spreads its wings and flies. The Gr...

Hi everybody I have been following this thread and I just wanted to briefly mention my experience as an evangelical Christian steeped in evangelical doctrine and dogma. The fear factor is a constant, fear of God's punishment for straying, for not tithing faithfully, for doubting "God's Word&quo...

as if God needed scientific verification The UB celebrates the scientific method and the value of the scientific contribution to the reality perspective based on fact as well as truth. Science and religion seek the same source and center of reality after all! :wink: So true. Every day cosmologists ...

Interesting comments.... whether Q nonsense or not I cannot say, because I don't even know what Q is, except as the bandwidth of an audio frequency filter. We have no way of knowing what is going on, but we do have the assurance from the Papers that there is a structure in place that may intervene i...
