Thanks. So True.
And so the new age is created. And this is probably good for the masses. I cannot see the time in my life where praise is not a better tool than prayer. Prayer is asking, praise is thanking. We are in need to praise what we have, and pray for others.
It depends on how you use the terms prayer vs praise. You view them in the light of your religion - i view them in the light of real life. My views are rarely colored by religious rhetoric.
d. Apparently you deceive your self. You think you have a handle on "real---- life". And your views are obviously colored by your religion. Oh wow, you follow no church dogma, but you clearly follow a dogma, lest you would not speak so insultingly.
Thanks D William - Interesting point. Sometimes when praising we even get what we didn't ask for.
E.D.-nothing insulting about my comments, only 2 those who think that not following any religion is somehow wrong.My faith in God is as strong, or stronger, as anyone's, organized religions do not represent the Creator, nor does the dogma they teach
Thank you d. williams, for the correction of my direction and dereliction. I was harsh. Mia Culpa. You exhibit truth and love, which I cherish though fall far short of.
E.D. no problem. we R all guilty of jumping 2 conclusions & judging others without knowing all the facts, sometimes in our lives. Knowing when not 2 do those things, or changing our ways is a virtue not possessed by enough people
So close aren't they? Thanks.
Thanks Savio. :-)
Thanks. I understand your point and it brings to mind. Psalm 22.3 God inhabits the praises of his people.
Thanks Dexis. Beautiful comment.
Thanks so much Connor. I like the photo. :-)
The first part of your answer made me also think which one God would like most and I think it's Praise. When people praised God (in the Bible) He did miraculous things for them without them asking. Ps 50.23 backs that up. (Both are Powerful) Thanks.
Even though you are a non-believer it is a very good answer. Even if it is a false hope, sometimes things come out the way you hope it goes-and sometimes even it a better way
Have you ever prayed? Mintinfo
Thanks. I appreciate you sharing that.
Maybe when I was a child but since my faith in a God was never sincere my prayers must've only been selfish. I made conditions such as "if you help me God I'll be good from now on" I respect religion because of its force for good.
Thanks. I personally think it's nice to praise God aloud. It says it in many of the Psalms too. I appreciate you stopping by.
It is there in my answer too, but I also speak of an ecstatic state or rapture, where words become meaningless and the Soul is steeped in God. This is known with inner experience.
the only 'truth' in ur statement is that it reconfirms the fear that keeps the faithful bound to their religion as a safety measure against the fear of that false statement itself. that is true manipulation
I honestly do not understand what you just wrote. Besides I do not belong to a Religion. I have a personal relationship with God and Jesus. And when I pray I do not go through any rituals or such I sit and talk to God when I drive to work 1 1/2 hr
Satan does not have to go out of his way, by that I mean he for some reason is able to demonize people very easy like a puppet master. Sad as it its. However God is in control and only allows what God wants done to complete his mission
my point?Satan is the figment of the imagination of men. He lives thru superstition, fear & guilt. It is a control factor of religion.Jesus also is glorified from the base needs of man. There is no reality in your statement. God has no rivals
True D God has no rivals but we do. We are always facing one type of temptation or another that is because Satan either tempts us or tears us down with his lies. Now to you God and Satan are just superstitions to me they are real.
L.R. -not what i said. God is very real. Satan is a manifestation only in the minds of humans 2 keep people afraid & in line. This video is my belief: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkaH3hEmV3M
Sorry d I misunderstood. Actually I think about it praise is more powerful. When we are in heaven we will be praising and worshiping for eternity. But there are prayers for help, thanksgiving, prayers for others. and so on.
