  1. C'mon Grace. I'm just tickling your belly. I just felt slightly impish today. Been good for too long of a spell. Anyway, Hi. Trust all is well with you. That's the truth, no kidding.
  2. I noticed that I only have 3 total reputation points. That is about the lowest of anybody here. Why?
  3. Even on the surface the whole idea of some god-man is as pagan as it gets. What's the big deal if god believed in himself that he would get raised from the dead? On the other hand, what man among us would lay down his life like the man Jesus Christ because God promised him he would get raised up? And all of that would have to be done after 30 years of never, not even once, giving in to the exact same temptations we all face and miserably fail at day after day. Like I said, no big deal for God, but for a man to do it is something else altogether. That's love. The trinity is the bigge
  4. I totally agree that such an important topic ought to be more widely known, and yet it seems to be somewhat obscure. I emailed 3 Jewish websites and asked them about the Idiom. I've received one reply and he hadn't heard of the "official" idiom, but he did understand the basic idea. This is what he said: "I think it is closer to having been given the gift of “choice.” Yahweh does not give permission for wickedness, or for acts outside of the scientific or natural inclination for His created beings, but may not prevent bad things from occurring it if it results or accomplishes His will or
  5. I was looking for the same thing when I came across your post. I know it's 5 years old, but if you are still interested I found a web site that cites people all the way back to the 1st century. There are about 2 dozen other references. I have to look at it more, but right off hand it just might sway me towards the validity of the idiom.
  6. So as not to exacerbate my Asperger's I can no longer post here. Sorry to ruin your fun, but eventually somebody else will come along for GSC to beat up on. Bye all....
  7. I can't answer your question because I don't know where I complained about being wronged in the original post. You are asking a completely irrelevant question. Gee, what could be the call to action in a post about love and forgiveness? Oh, maybe I should love and forgive? Notice I said "I", and not you or anybody else. I don't want to start another s..t storm because I demand obedience from all.
  8. Would I rather you judged me? What a foolish question. I don't care. Do what you want. God has judged me and I'm good with that. Have you not read even one of the many time I said I don't care if you believe me or not? If not, I'll tell you right now: I don't care if you believe me, God or the man in the moon. There, now we can put that to rest (except somebody will undoubtedly bring it up again). Put what out there? I haven't put enough out there already? You guys should have plenty of ammo by now.
  9. Thanks for your well wishes, having Asperger's as opposed to waybotness. I guess having Asperger's is a lot better than being a waybot. I just hope you are right. But there is the fact you mentioned that I haven't noticed the responses have stopped (the have?) so, God forbid, maybe it is waybotness. Oh no! And to think I haven't even noticed that I keep using scripture, ever increasing scripture at that. Could that be because I don't? Check up on that and get back to me. Or not. OK, I'm done with the sarcasm. Now onto something serious: You guys are soooo way conditioned that it is i
  10. Mandated? Really? What part did I make mandatory? To be clear, you don't have to believe one single word I say. Never asked you to believe anything. I think you are reading things into it that aren't really there. That's OK though. It's clearly the MO here at GSC when they feel threatened by the scriptures. What do you mean by the forceful side of forgiveness? I've not seen it in the scriptures but I guess you see it somewhere in there. Is it something you mandate I should do? Sounds like it to me, but I want to make sure you're not doing something you condemn in me. That would be hypocr
  11. Why do you ask me to say something that you will not believe anyway? You want me to take (waste) the time to "expound" no less. You've not once agreed with anything I've said (maybe a tacit agreement or two, but not much). I say I didn't mean to hurt anybody and you don't believe that either. You're mind is made up about who I am and I doubt anything I say will change that. That's fine. I'm not complaining, offended, or hurt, but it certainly doesn't motivate me to try to carry on anything resembling a discussion. You guys are bullies, plain and simple. Bullies never bothered me. In fact, in
  12. Honestly, I have no idea what post you are talking about. Didn't mean to offend you in any case.
  13. YOU MUST READ AND BELIEVE ALL I SAY!
  14. That's good...you "presented me with an opportunity." LMAO! Too bad I'm so defensive I can't take advantage of it. You have it all figured out. Good for you. This is getting real boring. Too predictable. In the future, if I post again your are free to not read it so as not to offend your sensibilities. That's the best advice I can give.
