A simple "we are all entitled to our own beliefs and I don't happen to share yours, but I respect your right to believe whatever you choose" should do it. If not, then I wouldn't worry about being more direct and insulting them to be honest. Some people have no concept of personal boundaries. If you state it just like above, it shows that you respect them and it also says you recognize you are worthy of the same respect in return. Many people can and do live and let live; others are never content unless they are trying to convert others. I choose not to surround myself with the latter.
Wikipedia: "Amun rose to the position of tutelary deity of Thebes after the end of the First Intermediate Period, under the 11th dynasty. As the patron of Thebes, his spouse was Mut." These r ur gods? They were NOT "in the beginning!" Why worship?
I told you, because he doesn't exist to me. He's your character from a story book, not mine. I only believe in Chaos, and nothingness, and never existing. My mother believed in witchcraft, she had a phase and left it 6 months later.
"Chaos" comes fm the spirit of evilness or "Satan!" My parents believed n "The Trinity" but when I grew up I studied for myself as you should do! Ur mom's beliefs had impact on ur beliefs whether u blv or not!
All it did was introduce me to more than one path. I never followed it my friend showed me the runes. Again another thing you didn't know about me, I used to call myself Unidolian... Little did I know 16 years later I would find out my Gods came from
I have learned to tell people that I am not Christian and do not want to talk about their religion. We can still be friends, but only if they leave their religion in their churches. If they persist, I start talking about how I don't believe in god, so there is no point in continuing the conversation. Then, I simply start talking about something else entirely. If they still persist, I just get up and walk away.
Ta: If u served the TRUE & LIVING GOD he was taught! He's waiting but doesn't want to appear against ur beliefs for arguments sake! For now, all is well! But GOD is watching! Is ur god watching? Is ur god alive? Why worship a god that did not
Ur god was raised fm the dead by another god? My GOD raised Himself fm the dead & doesn't need another's help! My GOD is an OMNIPRESENT Spirit! Everywhere, can do ALL thgs, w/o assistance! What god needs help being raised fm dead? R they LIMITED
Ok, I was being respectful... You're God isn't as real as mine for this fact, None of the bible is true, it has been proven thrice over by Science, and Archeology. Sorry, mine have way more evidence than yours.
Math, architecture, agriculture, medicine, all these and more came from mine who taught the Egyptians. Prophecies? Your book was written after all the "prophecies" came true. There were no true prophecies.
All the temples, all the monuments in Egypt, including Papyrus's with the Egyptian bible "The book of the dead" There are even 42 laws of Ma'at, written on the walls of the temples. Those are the morality of Ancient Egypt. Which in turn are in bible
No they weren't man made, what of the Emerald Tablets written by Thoth himself? You can't say that is man made, nor the Sphinx, or the Pyramids, no one can say for certain who made those, or wrote on them, except one person, I will email you again.
Sand scrips? Hah! Wow... That's been attributed to myths, and nothing more. I think you need to better than that, it is no truth to Jesus or your God, anymore than a piece of paper with the story of me being a Goddess.
Yes that is true, but this is also true, Your God has said to make earth 6,000 years ago. My Gods have been around for nearly 10,000 years. So how could your 6,000 year old God make my 10,000+ year old Gods?
Why delete? Am I making sense & you don't want to hear to remain in "your" ways? There's no salvation in worshiping "Idols" or "Magic" & you know this deep down inside! You want your children exposed to the life you were exposed to? Thk of
What did I delete? I didn't delete anything. And I don't know anything you're talking about. All I possess is everything the earth possess now, and in Ancient times, I don't use anything satanic, for I know nothing of Satan, nor do I believe in Satan
He's not apart of my world, or beliefs. I believe in Seth which is the closest you can get to Satan, but he doesn't have the same characteristics as Satan. He just wants to rule the world by killing Osiris, and Horus.
Consulting the bible every time a world event happens if your book was so accurate, so how come no ones covered the story that the bible said 9/11 would happen? Because its two unrelated things that you seem to put together.
I previously gave you Isaiah 9:10 re: 9/11! Did u not read the news article I previously gave? No one wants to "hear" truth! They keep "truth" on the down low but I will tell NOTHING but "truth!" I'm too old. My time maybe soon! Please listen!
No! TRUTH! When "all else fails," you will try Jesus, (on death bed? I hope not!) for Scriptures says "And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you THIS day whom ye will serve..." If not the LORD, who else? For there is only rt or wron
Forget about being graceful! Simply tell them if the only thing they want to discuss is religion when you get together then you won't be spending anytime with them. I've seen similar instances when friends have signed on with the latest "multi-level marketing" product. Suddenly every call and get together is about how (you) need to join up as well. There are thousands of other things to chat about! Sometimes you just have to cut off people. Each of us gets to (choose) who we spend our time with.
I am one of those people who don't want to offend anyone until they step over a line. Trust me when I say I have a lot of patience when it comes to that line. It once took me months to realize one of my ex friends wasn't truly my friend....
Ta: Your husband may tell you that, but if raised by a believer, he believes for Scripture says in Prov 22:6 says "Train up a child in the way he should go and, when he is OLD, he will NOT depart from it." It's instilled n him as u r instilling magi
I was raised Christian. I chose Paganism. Why? Because it fits me spiritually. Like shoes, or clothes, I needed something that felt comfortable. Paganism is comfortable, not evil, not a sin. My kids are doing well, they love the earth.
You saw ur mom perform rituals as a child which was amazing to u! U were beaten for being involved after she repented! U were raped by a believer. U were ditched by a believer! These reasons would turn anyone fm the TRUE & LIVING GOD who's not re
That's not why though, I turned to Paganism because it called to me, through my made up language, through many correspondences. Osiris, and Isis called for me, and I heard them... It wasn't because of heartache.
Girl, Satan is a spirit too! One can "hear fm him" as well! Why worship a god that did not create u, make the universe, control life & death, Why? This reminds me of Moses return to the people & they had made a pagan god! GOD was angry!
My God did create me, his fathers father "The ALL" created the universe, and the earth, everything. I am a living descendent of my God. He sees me, he knows me, he's been there for me, that's what I'm saying, he called me to him.
The All created everything, even Atum, and Nun... They created Shu and Tefnut, and they created Geb and Nut, They created Osiris, Isis, Seth, Nephthys, Osiris gave laws to man, and taught him how to live civilized.
Why so "many" gods? Each has a function? Can't perform alone? If GOD, then ALMIGHTY! Does ALL! I watched the video where your god appeared from a hump of sand out of the water that my GOD had made! Why worship "something" that came from another
Norine, MY GODS created yours haha, why do you think the 42 laws of Ma'at sound familiar? Your whole religion stole from mine and many others. Yours is a fabrication, a story made up of MY TRUE stories.
Well the video said he arose from a sand dune that my GOD created! How could she/he be before mine? I'm not familiar with the 42 laws of Ma'at? Should it sound familiar? In comparison to what? 10 Comm?
I emailed you the 42 laws of Ma'at, and also my GODS were long before yours, yours wasn't invented until 390 years after Christ died, so explain to me how your God was before mine? Yours is a made up version of ALL mine right down to Horus/Jesus
In your own words, anyone can say something and it come true, they probably saw trees being cut and said the world will end. Your own words. Also no none of them came true lol NONE! give me one example in an email, cause this isn't long enough.
I find it very "coincidental" that Isaiah 9:10 has been fulfilled "during our time" whereas you have "seen" nothing revealed from your gods because they are "stone" and "dead" (material) as the "idols" the ppl worshiped in bible! I will email.
I never said mine were stone, I said they helped my people create stone monuments with there powers, my Gods left their mark on the earth, your God never left anything but a book full of fairytales, and no none came true, trust me. News would be cons
Isaiah 9:10 is not a "con!" No one could have known when scrolls (Bible) written unless prophesied from my God! Where did all of this 2,000 year old knowledge prophesying future come from but my GOD? Have any of your gods done this?
I have had a hard time recently trying to explain to my mother in law that I am not going to convert. She always tells me that I'm ruining my boys lives by being Pagan. I have a lot of respect for my elders because of how I was raised in foster care. To hear her say I'm ruining my boys lives hurts deeply. She's said many things that have caused a lot of grief to me.
my husband has told me to tell her to bleep off when she says those things, but I can't seem to do it. ... I say "Naomi I'm sorry to say this but I'm not changing my faith. I don't see what is wrong with teaching my boys to love the earth and to respect all living things including insects."
She tells me there is nothing wrong with that, it's just she doesn't want to see them wearing the pentagram.... so I switched to Ankh's. She says that it's a pagan cross... I informed her that it's an ancient symbol for eternal life.
She says that my beliefs are silly and made up. I don't know how to get her to see that she's offending me.... I've tried so many different ways around it. My husband has even went so far as to ask me to fake being Christian just for her.... I told him the thought made me want to vomit.... it's a very sticky situation... and my boys are involved and I don't want to cut her out of their lives....
You have the right to autonomy and to raise your children as you see fit. I would remind her that they are not her children, but yours and if she wants to continue to have visits and be in their lives she can get right with that, or she can miss out
My husband as tried to talk me into being more forceful in talking to her. He openly tells her to shut up. But she isn't my mother and I don't feel that I should speak to her that way. However I have had times when I wanted to.
If you don't stand up for your kids who will? I understand not wanting to disrespect others, but it sounds like she does not extend you the same courtesy. Your husband does need to be more assertive as well but you are a team.
Ta: Foster care? You feel God deserted you? Is this why you turned to Paganism? Idols? Ungodly? God is "guiding" your life! So far, He's done a great job w/a husband, kids, a mother in law who cares! Ur spouse raised by her but don't blv? Really?
He thinks she's crazy. Because normal people don't call people devil worshiper. I do not worship the devil. I worship Osiris, and Aset (Isis). I'm not evil for it, nor are my children damned for it. And that's not my reasons for being Pagan.
All those things, and just because you don't understand magic doesn't make it evil. All the Ancient cultures knew of natural magic, that's exactly what I practice. Symbolism, herbalism, evoking your wishes.
Did ur god create heaven & earth? Did she do that for u? Did ur god create male & female? Did she? Does ur god guarantee "eternal life?" Does she? Does ur god not need u to perform rituals? Doesn't she? Baby MAGIC will not SAVE u! Be not dece
Yes she did in the beginning her name was Nun, she gave birth to Geb, and Nut, who had Isis, Osiris, Seth, Nephthys. Isis and Osiris ruled over Egypt for centuries... You can look it up if you like. My Gods, and Goddesses do all that your one God did
U have many gods? THE GOD doesn't need help! Why does yours? Too weak? There are NO RECORDS of your god! We have scrolls! What has been FULFILLED in their books? What has been written centuries ago in their book(s) that is currently happening?
There are lots of records of my Gods. Including Emerald Tablets that were written by Thoth the thrice wise God Of Egypt. Also the God who helped Nut have her 4 children because Ra had cursed her not to bare children on any day in the year.
OH! So u can "relate" personally to these gods? Ah so! I can see where these gods r attractive to u! Don't u know other gods were designed to distract one fm the TRUE & LIVING GOD? Satan is shrewd! Be not deceived for THE GOD is the ONLY GOD
Relate? What do you mean? I love my Gods, and Goddesses, the same way you love your "God" I don't know why you think that I'm lost. I was lost before I was found by Isis, and Osiris. Is it because I'm respectful? I was raised that way...
Ta save your breath, people like Norine and your MIL are only happy believing their God is right at the expense of others - you can't please people like this and shouldn't try. she likes it when people feed her so she can condemn.
Respectfulness is grt morale character! Raised by biological mom? If not, how old were u? These gods history align w/your life! Magic, conception drama, grt wife & mother, just like u! So u "relate!" My heart breaks!
Cartoons? What would you have them look like? The Ancients didn't have high quality computers to depict them the way they looked to them, the best they could do is draw, I bet yours looks like a cartoon too in the Ancient times.
The Creator (GOD) is a SPIRIT! No one has seen Him at any time! He manifested Himself in the flesh and Genesis, Daniel, Isaiah,& Revelation are the only places that mention how that manifestation (JESUS) looks! Nothing that's depicted by our soc
Jesus was a MAN on earth. Someone must have saw him, drew him, other wise how else would his stories go on? And again your whole book was written upon stories that existed in other religions. Stolen and given new names, but all the same stories.
Enrolling granddaughter in college as she has baby same time. Much going on in my life! Sorry I can't dedicate as much time to discussion as I would like but will return after thgs settle down. Out of state school starts 8/17.
The only proof you have is a book... You haven't proved anything, but you keep insisting that the bible tells the future, which I have not seen any of the things you claim from the bible that couldn't be explained as unrelated association.
One method you could try is a sort of compromise. Tell them that they can talk to you about their religion only if you have equal time to talk about yours. You might not be interested in spreading paganism, or even talking about it. But the suggestion that they would have to listen to you might scare them off. Many people like to talk, but don't like to listen.
Well she has asked me questions and as you said she didn't like listening to the answers. I wrote a hub about it on my page.... she basically said everything I do sounds and is designed by the devil and evil. It's my fault my kids are going to hell.
Yikes. In that case, you might have to be more direct. I would suggest saying something like "please don't be so hateful" but people with that extreme viewpoint think they are helping. It's best to just get away from it.
Ta: If "you" performed a "ritual," and got pregnant, but lost the baby in 2008, why did your god allow that? When my GOD does something, it's done! Do u have to help her/him by performing? Not my GOD! He does it, not me! Why work? What kind of god
Sorry that happened to you! GOD gives life & death! Not MAGIC! Maybe GOD was trying to tell u something but have given u over to a "reprobate mind!" I pray not for the children's sake & yours! I feel ur husband would be much happier if you
My husband is happy. To this day he thinks I put a spell on him, but I didn't. I told him I only did a spell to have my kids... I have them, and I'm happy. Now I'm working on my pathwork with Osiris, and Isis.
If this god gave u ur kids, don't u think ALL sterile women would resort to this? If we did statistics on how many sterile women rec'd their kids fm ur god vs THE GOD, guess who's God would win? Come on now! Witchcraft would b in ALL fertility clini
Why would it be? It's demonized and condemned, no one knows the powers they hold until they use them. My God is real, and he gave me my babies whether you believe it or not. I tried your God, he never heard me.
He never heard u for He KNEW what u would do n future - believe in pagan gods based on experiences as child! He knows one's heart even when asking! He knew u were just asking but ur heart was in childhood memories! U tore up Scripture? He rememb
At the time I was full heartedly into "God" I listened to Christian music, I wore the cross, I was all about him... I didn't even think about Paganism until my friend told me I wrote in Runes... That's when it started to lead me home.
Was ur mom ur biological mom? She did this to u! U were self taught (by her "amazing" actions) runes fm mom! Why'd she do this? My heart breaks! The "system" is not a good place for kids! Parents not screened thoroughly!
He didn't know what I'd do because at the time I was all about the bible.. And "God" I didn't turn to Paganism until I found out I was writing in Runes, which lead me home. I didn't know what Runes were, I must of been a natural Pagan.
When u were young, u bought materials re paganism! I'm sure u saw it in one of those articles but didn't understand or remember but infor still in subconscious! Why did she do this? Was this your biological or foster mom?GOD have mercy on her soul!
I bought only 4 books, one was for handfasting, one was for candle magick, one was for herbalism, and the other was for talking to nature in the language of nature. None of them had runes. I didn't even know how to make a proper BoS and some how Idid
Dear heart, u saw it as a child & subcons remembers! A child's memory is as clay & what they're expose to they may not remember but subcons does! I majored in psychology in college & have studied this! Children r easily "molded." B care
Listen, I never saw Runes, I never had any way of seeing them. I only had 4 books, and none of them had runes. I made it up in my head so no one could read my diary. Later when I had a computer I was shown runes and realized I wrote them without know
Girl u WERE 9 yrs old! U saw the writings! U may not remember but subcons did! Go to a professional & see if these things are hidden in your subconscious! Do this for your children, husband, marriage, mil, & most importantly - YOUR LIFE!
Oh Goddess... Ugh, I remember perfectly clear, I am one with my mind, body, and soul... I remember sitting down and making it up when I was 15. Nothing in my books when I was 9 had RUNES! No runes until my friend showed me online. I didn't know any
OK! Let's say u never saw runes nor remember seeing! Did I not tell you that there are Satanic spirits as well. They are capable of "making things up in your head" as well even as a child! He doesn't care as long as he wins one over Jn 10:10!
Because he is made up. Why would I believe in something that was made up? I don't believe in Santa Clause and no ones saying "Why don't you believe in him? Are you against the joys of Christmas?" No, I just know that he's not real... I still have joy
Not real in the sense that "you can touch him," but he has a "spirit" & that "spirit" is one of deception! Look how he's gotten into your head to make u blv thgs that r untrue by "reading" books that only proves that my God exists!
All "materalistic!" The Book (Bible) has fulfillments of prophesies! Does your gods' rocks, monuments, etc does this? Has a prophesy been fulfilled by ur gods during ur lifetime? This is a "Spiritual" journey not "materialistic" or "magic!"
I've given you proof in your email, and still you refuse to see that yours is fake... So what's the point in saying the same thing repeatedly? I don't believe in your scripture, I will never believe it, I'm happy where I am with my SPIRITUALITY!
Ta-Iset, It appears you now have two people trying to convert you! LOL! Believers have no interest in logic or reasoning. They live to convert others. They're going to heaven and everyone else is going to hell!
I would simply say that you're happy with your own beliefs, and would prefer not to discuss religion---and then, change the subject.
I have quite a few church-going Christian friends. We simply don't discuss religion when we're together. There are so many other interesting things to talk about, there's no reason to focus on one where we don't agree.
Yes, he a "man" but NOT "the MAN" GOD told him to be! At this point in his life (all is well) but one day he MUST face reality (TRUTH in His Word)! He's appeasing you! He's NOT being the MAN GOD told him to be! Bcuz he's OK w/it, DOESN'T make it
He was scared of it at first, he saw how I worship, how I practice, and he said "Oh so you don't call devils or demons?" I said "No!" he said "Ok, then I am ok with this" He had an open mind and it showed him theres nothing to fear.
Anyone who doesn't know Jesus, would be afraid! I know JESUS has already defeated Satan so I'm not afraid but why would you want to subject ur kids to furthering witchcraft & idol worship for generations? Don't u love your kids as ur mil does?
Are you kidding me? The Pyramids themselves are records, the walls of the temples in Egypt are the records, no records? The biggest monuments in the whole region of Egypt is scripture. I will have to write you and email with the laws of my Gods.
No disrespect but when I rd the website u sent, ur gods look like cartoon characters! What prophesies have come true fm these idols? The OLD book's writings (Bible) has had prophesies come true recently! Does ur god's book(s) have confirmation(s)?
My Gods, made a clock on earth, that said there was something going to happen 25,000 years after their time, which was about 5500 years now. They said that the earth was going to be full of fire... Which was saying our atmosphere is disappearing...
Any "man" knows that due to civilization's growth (destroying nature) the environment would/will eventually suffer! What else? Biblical prophesy was fulfilled in Isaiah 9:10 for 911! What other book does that? Give me more fulfillment of prophesy
Yeah but at the time no one could of known we would burn coal, and fuel that would destroy the atmosphere, so how could they make an assumption based on nothing? And it wasn't a prophecy about 911, you are associating two unrelated details.
Like I said two unrelated things, you found a similarity and said "Yup my book told me this would happen" Where as the pyramid says it directly, clear as day itself what will happen, and not even the bible says it clearly.
As u see "similarity" btwn ur life & ur gods? Why am I not the only one that said "Yup my book told me this would happen?" Did you Google? What happened to those "political figures?" Not MAGIC! Can you say the same for your gods?
You cannot find the pyramid teachings in scholar papers, or even history books, why? Because people have bias, only true scholars know the teachings, and I have their teachings, because I LOOKED for it.
As us saw "similarity" between your life & your gods? Why am I not the only one who said "Yup my book told me this would happen?" Did you Google? Did us see what happened to those political figures? Not MAGIC! Have u seen prophesy FULFILLED fm
If you read all the links you will see all your "prophecies" from the bible never came true, they were stories told with vague statements which you said yourself that anyone could say and have come true. So you disproved your own with your own words.
Hey, you guys, thanks for hijacking my comment for this holy war! Norine, I have to say, your comments are really preachy, and don't allow for the idea that NOT EVERYONE BELIEVES WHAT YOU DO! There are other belief systems.
I think we can all be firm in our belief systems without beating each other up with them, to the exclusion of all other beliefs. I enjoy learning about other belief systems, but only when they're discussed without preaching and railing.
That also wasn't my intention, I was answering her questions and defending my right to my beliefs. It makes me livid when they call me Satan worshiper, and saying theirs is the true religion, when Paganism came far earlier than theirs.
I hear you, Ta. I have friends who are Pagan, and they've always struck me as very loving people. I've never understood the confusion some have between Paganism and Satanism, or the lack of understanding that much Christian ritual is based on Pagan.
Sorry! Had late night! Chronological time frame OK! Lisa, sorry for "hijacking" but not enough rm! Other relg or also interesting to me! Glad to meet Pagan! I'm learning! We're only "proving our beliefs" not "arguing" at least that is not my intent!
Norine, I counter your question, "but why would you want to subject ur kids to furthering witchcraft & idol worship for generations?" with, "why would you want to subject your kids to the confusions of "Original Sin," "loving god," and Hell?"
Yeah but your "God" made us sinful, why make us this way only to punish us for it? That doesn't seem right. My children do bad things and I direct them in the right direction, I don't drown them because they're not perfect.
An answer to your question, just be honest. People are going to have differences its just a matter of respect. Myself being a Christian I am far from being perfect and people I associate with still like who I am.
" SPIRIT is what this journey is about - not something one can touch, see, or is audible to others!" LOL!!! So next time you go for a ride in the automobile, it's the spirit in the tank that drives you..nothing to do with the gears or the piston.
I don't even know what you're talking about, spirit? I don't think so, I think that my Gods, and Goddesses are conscious beings, who came here in our past and taught our ancients skills, and language, not one single God, but many.
Smile sweetly and tell them in a very polite voice, "thanks,but I'm not interested. I'm already in a very deep, fulfilling relationship with Satan." ...I used to use that one on the roving Jehovahs' Witnesses that I encountered in bus/train stations and they couldn't get away from me fast enough.
Be straightforward. Tell the Christian that you have a zero% chance of conversion and that he or she should focus efforts on converting someone else, instead of wasting time with trying to convert you. Also, compare it to how it would bother that Christian if you tried to convert him or her continuously. Try to reach an agreement that you will not try to mention religious beliefs around each other. If this person is worthwhile to have in your life, he or she will learn to understand your discomfort and your side of the issue.
You really have to argue so much that you move onto my comment? And, I've read the scriptures twice yet I still think you are acting crazy. No matter what you say, you will not change our minds. Stop fighting and enjoy life.
I may be open minded, and I don't mind listening to you rant, but you can't say yours is the only right religion without proving it's older than mine, which is impossible because mine has been proven older than yours, and more likely to b right.
I'm only repeating the Word of God! Ranting? I tell u again dates were given by "man" who LIES! It's his job (man/Satan) to LIE to gain souls! It's ur job to STUDY in Spirit the Word of God to find out what He said & allow IT to take place!
My dear, i understand you but you and I are same and different, I am wired in a healthy pagan way. This is who I am with all my qualities the same, just internally seeing and connecting in a different way.
My answer would be the same whether a person was trying to convert me to Christianity, Islam, Paganism, Athiesm or any other belief system (or system of non-belief):
"Thank you for your concern, but I am not interested in changing my belief system. Additionally, your trying to force the matter upon me is not helping your cause. I hope we can maintain a relationship despite our differences, but that will only happen if you can respect my freedom to believe as I do."
My children are of my God, not the bibles God. Osiris gave me the gift of children, so they are of him... They were divine miracles. I know that Him and Isis saw that I truly wanted children, and decided my heart was worthy of them.
I think that its always good to be open to discussion. Being a Catholic, I am continually asked by my CHRISTIAN friends to join them in being born again. I understand what they are talking about as I have been there and done that. But they are my friends and I love them, so I always listen and let them know that I appreciate them sharing their hearts with me. Then I go on my way. if its someone who is not a friend then, it will depend on how much time I have. Blessings.
Thank you for your answer, and I like yours as well. Norine, you will never understand that others do not agree with you and when they don't you can't insult their beliefs. Mine have been around far longer than yours, but u stl say urs has been..
Hahaha I love you guys! I been trying to explain to her for weeks, that no matter what I DO NOT believe in SATAN! He doesn't EXIST! No one is following Satan except for Christians because they believe in him!
Ta-Iset......"mother-in-law" issues of interference can be DREADFUL. I feel for you. I did not have any MIL troubles......at least not face to face. My sister-in-law (we were married to brothers).& I....had a strong bond and of course we KNEW that our MIL had her opinions and things to say "behind our backs.." but that just made us laugh. At least she was wise enough to never start any unpleasant discussions with either of us. It could have gotten ugly because we're both the type of women to tell people EXACTLY what we're thinking. So much for that!
I have read this entire thread.....despite the fact that one person here is most incredibly repetitive and severely annoying.......Oh please help us when we hook one of those single-minded, brain-washed, hijacked individuals! Let's face it. It's a complete waste of energy, oxygen and logic to respond to them. My opinion is....leave them be in their small, stifled & ignorant world. They're happy...or so they profess!
Hey all! Take Notice and beware. We've been forewarned "GOD IS WATCHING." Reminds me of a joke I heard a long time ago....... 10 year olds, Johnny & Jimmy were in the cafeteria line for lunch in school.....There was a NUN standing by the basket of apples. She told the children to TAKE JUST ONE APPLE.....and GOD was WATCHING them!.....So down the line Johnny & Jimmy went after taking just ONE apple.....They got to the very end and there was a huge pile of chocolate cookies. Johnny started grabbing handfuls of cookies and piling them on his tray!! Horrified, Jimmy said, "Johnny....WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" Johnny said....."Go ahead, take as many as you want.....God's watching the apples!!"........... I think this thread could use a bit of levity!.....Whew. Those fanatics sure get rough to handle!
Paula: One is either a "believer" or not! If a "believer," there's NOTHING but Scripture! If annoying, why read? Don't upset yourself for that is NOT my intent! Just expressing my "belief!" II Timothy 3:16!
Trust me Norine,oh child of God. We are ALL 100% painfully aware of your firm, dedicated, convictions. I read because I WANT to.ONE fly in the ointment will not keep me from my friends. U would be wise to tone down UR snippiness. It's unacceptable.
Norine. Here's the simple reality. U have no photo, no Bio, 9 mos here- no HUBS. This equates to ZERO credibility in the community. 4 all any of us know, U R posting from the day rm. of a psyche ward. U're just another troll. Take ur meds & a nap
Alright I'm closing this question and opening a forum, for me and Norine to debate. I don't want these nice people to be bothered anymore, I apologize everyone, I will take our stubbornness else where. I will link it to you Norine.
I agree with Christin Sander, and sometimes you have to be blunt-after all, they don't mind telling you, you're going to H---, if you don't become a Christian. I mean how insulting if that for a person to judge you as lost? Pretty insulting, I would say
If u were a prostitute & I called you a prostitute, would it not insult? That's what the Disciples do: Tell ppl what is in the Scriptures & most don't won't to hear for it contradicts their lifestyle or hurts so they insult! Study!
I don't quite understand what I'm being asked to do. Read the bible? I have, I didn't feel comfortable with the concept that one God says do not worship other Gods, which means there must be more than him. Then bullies his "Children". Mine doesn't
No, thank you, I'm comfortable as I am. I don't feel like a Christian, I don't believe as one and your God can't get a prayer out of me. So, don't try to push me to believe. I want to run my world, my way. Okay? When your God produces for you, a million dollars then maybe. Until then, I'm not coming.
How to make parents stop trying to control your life when nothing else I've tried works?I have a hard time trying to stop my parents planning all my life, tell me what to do, what friends and surroundings to choose (even though I've never had problems as bad resulting doing any of that), where and...
It seems that Islam is on the rise in just about every nation around the globe.They are pushing their agenda onto any and every government that is TOLERANT, and using the freedom (and laws) in those countries to gain more and more control.The UK is a prime example, where political will is weak (at...
Do you find it hard to tell people that you are Pagan? Is it even harder to explain that you are Wiccan or a Witch? I've found that on the internet, it's easy for me to be "out of the broom closet" so to speak; however, in personal life...it seems as though everyone around me is either...
