I don't know what it is, but it sounds tasty
in revelations it talks about the book of lamb. This is God's book of chosen people. Those who will be redeemed for their good intentions. Now the Devil has a copy of the names in this book because he wants to put stumbling blocks in the way of those that are listed lives. This is so they will fall into Satan's arms. In satans view, the best souls to collect are those that are good souls, turned.
Does that make sense?
It means a lamb can write. I think his/her alias is Mother Goose.
Im in the book of Lamb.. Denno is in the book of lamb, but when we are written in the book of lamb so are we listed in the book of the devil. That way, he can come a try us!
Unfamiliar with Book of Lamb. I can tell you about the Book of Life but not Lamb. Can you expand on what source you get this term from.
We all know it and the real source of knowledge is -
"Duck Fat." Amen.
Sorry - God did not deem you worthy.
You will burn in hell fire for eternity.
I love lamb...it'll be Christmas dinner this year.
The question was posed so here we go. The Book of Life is the sum total of one's thoughts and actions or, in essence, the record of one's life. The Lamb's Book of Life is His other record of the faithful which is mentioned in Revelation. Is this to what you are referring to?
It is also mentioned in the following passages:
What does it mean to me?
It tells me that I, personally, have an accounting to make for all my thoughts and actions (and inactions) done while in the flesh. The ultimate goal, of course, is to qualify for the Lamb's Book of Life. It is pretty serious stuff to ponder when one reflects on his or her own life.
Whew. Good thing none of it's true, then
Your point is a good one.
We all respond from our own experiences (including yourself, as you point out).
I found the teaching you outlined to be a fairly seriously crippling belief to have, when I had it; I'd say it was bordering on the poisonous (maybe that's strong language; but it certainly made me paranoid, in a way, and nervous, and downgraded my quality of life by several notches -- so I am only reacting to that, that's all.
But we each have our own experience of course. Knife-pulling is not cool, to say the least).
I thank you greatly for your honesty.
No, it definitely was not cool. Wasn't the first time and probably not the last unfortuneately.
Man, I don't know, but some of the experiences recounted on this site make me wonder if America really is the land of the wackos, as some people dub it. In all my life I never heard of anyone having a knife pulled on them over religion in any of the several places around the world I have lived. It's sad, because America has *so* much going for it in other ways...
I completely agree. I believe we have some of the best most charitable people here in this country and at the same time we have the lowest of the low. It is a universal truth I have come to accept. Where there is good you will find the evil. Discernment is the key.
I live in an area that is still very much "anti" my religion. And for that I and many others of my faith are persecuted. It is hard, sometimes, to maintain the faith but we cannot waiver.
Still, I have also lived in places that are pretty anti-Christian. In Quebec, for example, they blame the Catholic Church for the oppression of the French by the English (the French were Catholic and the Catholic Church taught them not to get above their station, while the Scots and English Protestants filled the power vacuum). But I have never heard of anyone being accosted in any way for their beliefs.
Britain too, is extremely secular. Again, I never heard of anyone knifing a Christian (though Muslims sometimes get attacked now, thanks to the War on Terror, and all that...)
there has been prejudice here in the UK for years.. the blacks, the asians and now the muslims. Shame but true, human behaviour has a habit of forcing a view on another, even if it means violence
But did you ever hear of anyone in Britain knifing someone because they were a Christian??
To clarify, though, for me it did not happen because I was a Christian but rather the denomination of Christian. That alone - is what fears and enfuriates them the most. These are also people who proclaim to be Christians themselves. It's amazing how intolerance twists even the very arrogant and ignorant.
Still. I've lived in quite a few varied places, and the only time I ever heard of someone being attacked for their religion (or denomination) was when they were Muslim (or Sikh, and being mistaken as a Muslim).
Our faith has many thousands of missionaries serving in all parts of the globe. Many years ago we had a couple if "sister" missionaries serving in a town just eighteen miles away. They were approached and threatened with rape. Immediately they were pulled from that mission field and reassigned. The field yet remains closed to sister missionaries. The persecution is real and the stereotype that people have of my faith is also real in their hearts and minds. Although false in nature it still remains a powerful tool used against us.
yes it happens. None the less, it shouldnt happen to anyone x
Seriously, people shouldnt have aggressive behaviour put on them for their beliefs, whatever their belief system is! We all need to respect each other, love one another and be kind x
well, talking to the retired vicar.. he tended to think that it is about those with good intentions. He said that there was Satan's book with the same names and his objective is to make those listed in the book of lamb or his list, to stumble and fall. Essentially to convert them to the ways of evil by diverting them from their paths of good intent.
Has it got something to do with washing yourself down in blood at some point
mmmm, you might be thinking of sheepdip -- not the same thing
Hey, I went through Maine once. It was very dark (I was on a night train).
There seemed to be no lights in the communities -- or maybe there were no communities... lots of trees, though
was you stroking the hair of a horse at the time?
Denno knows that when a sheep is on its back it cant get back up, so easy for sacrifice!
you love it babes! Be sacrificed for the love of the saviour! *wink*
AdsenseStrategies does have a point though. Many times the ocurrences in our lives either strengthen or weaken the perceived "facts" we have at that point in time. For myself I try to live my life as if there IS that book. Doing so has gained me a testimony of the reality of that accounting. I understand that not all agree with certain religious perspectives. At the same time I believe that most people here are trying to live their lives to the best of their ability in trying to maintain the integrity and sincerity of heart. This is good because (from my point of view only) their good deeds are still being recorded in that Book whether they, themselves, believe in that accounting or not.
Well-stated. Just shows how important it is to have an educated mind. I don't agree with your beliefs, but I most certainly respect the way you express yourself. Too bad this sort of comment was not more typical around here, rather than the "well I know I am but what are you" style we so often get.
A good life review is the ultimate reward. That's how I see it.
yep.. live life with good intentions, respecting others and by being kind x
Well, lack of religion doesn't guarantee non-violence, either. However, live and let live.
Granted, OVERWHELMINGLY, violence is introduced out of a cowardess nature. They WANT a violent reaction in order to justify the action taken on you. Over time I have learned that at these occasions I must stand firm while being as calm and collected as can be. Just like on HP things are said in order to invoke a negative response back. For me as long as I stand strong and show my resolve as completely firm in there eyes they usually back off. In fact, on occasion, I have had my hand shook from a perpetrator who was relieved to see that I would not back down. But this is rare happening.
It is a cruel world online and out. In order to progress as a civilization that virtues hard work and not "entitlements" we must become more tolerable and understanding. We don't need to be in pursuit of changing everyone's mind to match ours in order to successfully coexist in peace.
One scar was enough for me to permanently tell me there are evil minded people out there.
I am sorry. Just keep it in mind and hope that they might see the error of their ways x
Understanding, though, remember in their eyes and many on this forum I am in error. That's fine. It's called opinion. It goes back to my answer to your original forum question. No matter what happens to me, even to the loss of my own life, I am to live as if all my fiber of being is recorded in that Book of Life and I am to stand accountable one day for every page contained therein..... But that, again, is only my opinion and testmony according to my own experiences just as AdsenseStrategies has his opinions according to his life givings. It's all OK, and I hold no malice toward anyone. Thanks for allowing me to express my thoughts.
That ,goldenpath, is a tough lesson to teach our children, who, by nature, start off being pure of being. There are those out there who just feed on that innocence. I've met some beautiful people that just cannot comprehend the notion of those without regard for anyone or anything.
If I'm half tha believer that I think that I am would and wanna be would I care if somebody came up from behind me and cut my head off????
