    If you have a personal relationship with God then aren't all of us 'Independent Nondenominational'?

    Even a person who rejects or doesn't believe in a god is still having a relationship - albeit an enstranged one. A person who identifies with a certain paradigm uses a label as a kind of shorthand but ultimately is more complex internally - yes?

    Technically speaking, you have a very good point!  Interesting, never thought of it that way.  smile  I heard a great analogy of the buffalo following the herd - they inevitably can run themselves off a cliff.  Then there are the birds who fly in a V-pattern.  Each bird, while following the leader, has a bird's eye view of what lies ahead.  I like to move with others as a team, but keep my viewpoint - as a human being I don't want to give that up!

    Its all a matter of opinion It would seem, Or Some would have us to believe. I think somewhat along the line you have drawn here. We differ on the Non denominational part. Because I know we are All allowed to choose for ourselves and are All held accountable for our selves, by God our Father our Creator.

    Yes we are all beholding to One even as is: the one, who has cause this event to come upon us all here on earth. For he is a Creation of our Father who is in Heaven. Satan he is our closest KIN. Satan is our brother and not our father whom he wishes to replace.

    And we were Made in Both God's Image for us and in the One Satan has us now locked us into; these Human forms are of Satan's chosen. For God does Alll things correctly from the start.

    People tend to forget that what we are going through is a dispute between God and Satan. For Satan tries to make his failings everyone else's failings by causing them to fail. We all belong to God not one Not any thing ever created does not belong to Him. For without God nothing was ever created. But that which God has created.

    Its a simple fact: because this is what makes GOD  God of gods and King of kings and Lord of lords the supreme ruler of them All.

    You truly cannot deny GOD for without GOD there is nothing nor can there be. We who were and are foolish to this matter are only in a state of Denial or Sin to which Satan was the originator there of!

    And is the perpetrator of. It is because of his failure to repent that we all now must choose to Live or Die for GOD Can Not be denied!

    For if He(GOD) ever was. All would Stop to exist except for GOD Himself until He created something Newer and Better then we are Now. Which is about to come to pass when we are return to our former bodies that once were. The ones God placed our souls in.

    God is a Now promise Maker ( Because of Satan's Fall) and He has Never Broken His promises, but has repented from some of them. So I agree, Yes we are all Independent, But yet many of Us have chosen sides or descriptors for our-selves. When there is truly, but only Two choices to be made. Life or Death and GOD has told us He is the correct choice.
