NOW HEAR THIS!!!

The whole world is wrong and Rawlings is right! We should all bow to his superior intellect and immediately quit our doubtful, heathen ways! We should immediately stop replying to his threads because he is THE authority, not God. We should merely read and absorb and By God rep every one of his posts and express our fealty to the superior one!

Rawl? God, Himself, gave ALL of us the choice of believing, or not believing,

even down to HOW we believe.

We can't just ATTACK other folks that don't believe what we do ~
if our words about The Truth that we know don't reach them,
then our actions have to speak the fact that His Spirit lives within us,

and His Spirit is not spiteful, nor malicious, TOWARDS ANYONE ~

we're His creations,
and in His good time, each of us will be brought into the fold,

as He wills.

On a more "homey" note ~

You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.

Very well said! Thank you!

The behaviour of others is not my responsibility. If they choose to misbehave there's nothing I can do about it. I choose to keep my composure no matter how others behave towards me. That's not naive, it's reality.

There wasn't anything malicious in my questions. Why can't you just answer them?

All he did was comment on the spirit of the post. How can you draw such an implication??

Two things occur to me :

1) I'm a Christian, and have known that MM was an atheist,
but he :

2) allows ALL of us to have our say, IN HIS HOUSE,

and there's never been any problem with the folks here understanding that some of us are religious, and others are not, and others are atheists and/or other "denominations," with totally different philosophies of interpretation.

This is his forum ~
which he pays for, maintains, adds tweaks to, etc.,

and in this venue, we are here, at HIS "grace."

We don't sling shit at him,
and he's very permissive in letting us voice our own beliefs/opinions,
whether or not he, personally, agrees with them.

But that shit slingin' thang won't wash, here ~

not with ANY of us.

Being reasonable, and allowing for The Other Facets,
is OUR only way to see the reality that we were given.
