  1. I would have to say - Do Not Do this Essay! This is a corrupt organization that will use your own words against you to trap, intimidate, and coerce you into following their lead. It's just one more thing for them to sink their hooks in to you.
  2. It's one thing to get out of the way, and that's not easy, and another thing to get the way out of ourselves, a lot harder, I believe. As you know well, BecomingMe. It took me quite a few years of attacking this way thing in my head, before I think it was finally done. Looking at it now and from the past, I was battling myself, not someone else or some kind of god or devil. A lot of people helped, whether they know it or not. Mostly people from Greasespot, but others as well.
  3. I don't believe Christ is absent or missing.
  4. If Christ is not absent, then why is there a "return"? Or "coming of the Lord". It must be talking about something other than what we were taught.
  5. Reminds me of Scrooge who didn't realize he had so much to give until he saw his own tombstone. Most people won't see much until they die, which is not a bad thing, just happens like that. Old Scrooge died that day, and things changed inside of him.
  6. Maybe it's time to grow up and out of using the imagination to point at extraneous material gain, blaming everyone else, and point that imagination at yourself and soon to learn that peace, prosperity, joy, love, hope, faith is there for you when the reality of what has been done in you begins to surface.
  7. I've never liked having only two choices on anything. There is more to God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus the Christ than a bunch of doctrinal debates, more than anything anyone could actually put into words. "I and my father are one", it doesn't say in purpose at all. Becoming one, as stated in Genesis, was not in purpose either. Who has the courage to face themselves with no one else to argue with?
  8. The administration teaching is not exclusive to twi, but yeah, set those aside for a moment and consider the scriptures. Without a timeframe consider life as a whole.
  9. Part of a problem deal about scripture and what is taught, is that the thinking is chronological, things happening in some kind of order that is studied. If any timetable is removed, a new light can be found in understanding. Is the bible the word of God? I think of it as scripture, and that is not the only source to find scripture. The word of God to any person does not need a bible or book as a go between, an advocate or like anything between you and God. Luther made a point long ago when studying the scriptures that there is nothing between God and men concerning righteousness.
  10. The trinity has just as much truth in it as the opposition to it.
  11. as if the devil was something set apart from Jesus at that time, not so me thinks having this power Jesus was "tempted", seeing what he could do, decided
  12. No to the question. I'm still a child of the one who could "come up" with me.
  13. As a father I want the best for my kids. That involves letting them think for themselves a lot, even if they are wrong. From my children's perspective I am both good and bad, depends on the day, or moment, or year. I am the thief, the destroyer and I give them an abundant life, as much as is in my power. As they have grown, they see more of what actually happened, and still happening.
  14. My wife and I made 2 sons. I've told them not to do some things and they did it anyway. And I've told them to do some things that they didn't do.
  15. I know what that teaching is, I disagree, I don't think that is what these scriptures are saying.
