    There are thousands of books about the Christian faith and I have no problem with that….or this man’s book. To him, this was a revelation and he wrote about it. It may help somebody else. Sounds good all around. We don’t need just one book on the subject and call it done.

    So glad to see this book mentioned (LGPE). Though the “prophecy” wasn’t really too good, the way Lindsey explained WHY Jesus had to die on the Cross was pivotal for me.

    that’s too bad. what kind of company?

    My world doesn’t hinge on whether or not PetSmart recognizes Christmas. I don’t really care about any of them, as long as they don’t prohibit “the free expression thereof” either.

    The article states the gene gives a disposition toward homosexuality. That’s not the same as a gay gene though. I have blue eyes due to genetics, not a predisposition toward blue eyes that could go either way. I don’t think this latest discovery is convincing.

    I’ve given the new show Black-ish a shot. It’s not great yet, but many shows start slow. However, a week or so ago the show’s parents had a scene in the kitchen, the dad was tired and didn’t’ want to have “relations” with his wife, so the wife told him if he’s tired he can….SHE POINTS TO HER CROTCH WITH BOTH HANDS. Yes, I admit it, I’m a prude and enjoy Green Acres. Still and all, this is supposedly a mild show and I thought it was highly inappropriate.

    I’ve noticed a lot of this lately….things that should be (or were R, now PG). I don’t understand why.

    Unfortunately people think sex is an “activity” you do on a date. Whatever happened to bowling?

    She hates him so much, he’s so disgusting, and “the next morning” won’t take her home. LOL. (

    “And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. 8:29 And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time? 8:30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding. 8:31 So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.”

    Shame there wasn’t a herd of swine around at that moment.

    Except in the actual parable of the Prodigal Son he was greeted and feted.

    I actually attended Mass this weekend for All Souls’ Day. The priest talked about purgatory during the sermon. The 2 explanations he gave were the Maccabees one, and another NT passage about Jesus stating you can’t be forgiven for blaspheming the Holy Spirit in this life or afterwards. The priest (and I assume all priests because the article text is pretty darn close to what I heard indicating a press release type of sermon) explained that this indicates a possibility of paying for your sins after death. I think that’s a pretty weak argument.

    My adultery is a gift from God. My pedophilia is a gift from God. My greed is a gift from God. My lying is a gift from God. See how silly that sounds?

    OK, a day or 2 later I’ve read the comments. It’s an interesting debate. We cannot know if the dead are asleep or active. If they are asleep, praying to them for intercession is useless. If they are active, maybe not. I understand the power of intercession as it is frequent and common for believers to pray for others, and to ask for prayer. If the dead are active, then it makes sense to ask for intercession. I really don’t have a problem either way. As I’ve said before, I have a real affection for the Catholic church (having been raised Catholic and with 1 foot still in it) and so I try to understand points that confuse me. So, if we hold that the dead are active, Mary could be an intercessor. However, it was explained by a PRIEST once to me that Jesus loved his mom (true) and there is nothing he would deny her so we should pray to her so she would take our problems to him. At that interpretation I have a problem. Jesus WANTS us to take our problems to him. He takes our burden and makes it light. He doesn’t need his mom to cajole him. So if you are likening Mary’s prayer to our friends’ prayer….OK, I can accept that. If you are saying we NEED her to convince Jesus to help us, no. But between me and God the Father….that’s all Jesus (the only intercessor between God and man). Maybe we’re saying the same thing without realizing it.

    Since we are to pray so that leaders will lead well, perhaps Luther was the person God used to bring the problems to light. Luther was not trying to divide the church, but correct it.
