    No matter your stance on religion we all need love. Love is the center piece of Christian religions and the Bible is a guide to love. Where in your opinion do you feel this message gets lost on so many? If you are opposed to love then that would be self-explanatory but I'm sure most prefer love in their life. I'm not baiting anyone for a fight, please honest opinions.smile

      Poor communication tends to be the biggest problem, I think! Listen to what others are saying before you critize and judge for crying out loud!

      It gets lost on so many because they place the wrong definition on the word "love".

      Hi Sneak! In my opinion, if you're talking about love, if you're open to it, love will be there regardless of what religion or philosophy you follow.  If you're talking about whether a person is receptive to the message of love when it is communicated through a religion, people have blinders because of the vehicle that carries that message, there's not much you can do about it.

    Since religion have rules there is no true love within.

    Those who truly love are those who looks part all rules and see the Spirit.

    God is the Spirit of All Goodness and His son is the Truth, which makes the goodness plain.

    That is the way of love.

      That's not totally true.

      God is Love.
      Yet even He has rules.

    Love is everything to me. I have family, pets and friends that I love very much. I am lucky enough to live in a place where love is easy. No wars, no famine, very few hate filled religious zealots, everyone has food and shelter. smile

    I have empathy for those who have to find love while under horrible circumstances of fight to survive. smile

    a better question is "where are we?" since there is so little love in the world.  i am hopeful though as i see more and more people stopping their insane desire-driven routines to reach out to their fellow human beings and the creatures they share the earth with.  maybe i just live in a crap-hole.  all i know is where i would be without love and that is dead.

        Hi Earnest, just found this crazy note from one of your OZ guys and I though of you, this is brilliant.... OH NO, I'm not calling you brillian, but the note is!

          temporal-spatial shifts are quite tricky!  i have time machine but i do not have a space-time machine as this person claims in their note.  my Similichron is constantly backdating as i surf the net.  to make a space-time machine is something i really hadn't considered.  hmmmm... must investigate.  thoughtful of him to leave a note but i still don't recommend the whole temporal-space shift deal.  trust me-shift one dimension at a time!

    Love is the language, spoken or unspoken, that every human being relates to with clarity. It is the language of the heart. So we all have love because we have a pulsating heart.

    Love will not dwell where it is not wanted.

    True love, the useful kind starts with self love and self respect not elf love and enslavement to it! smile

    Seems to me love is independent of a religion or anything like it. It exists as a part of life and living. Remember all those studies about babies, animals and even plants that thrived where love is, and just plain didn't when it's not there? Can't find any links as examples, but I did read about it in times past.

    Love has kept me going through all the trouble in life. Sounds almost trite in a way, but it sure is the truth in my case.

      does he know about the Philadelphia Experiment?  i would really discourage him from landing so close to that trash can.  he may materialize partially inside of it.

          Our Craig had to land in Windsor, he lives there and you just can't always get a cab in Windsor. I have no Idea why he didn't choose the park behind that gate. Plenty of space there. Funny I recognised the background, I lived just around the corner in Punt Road! lol

            well i'll stabilize the Earth temporal gravity phase thrusters so that his resonance is in frequency when he lands.  that's the best i can do.  with a little luck and a good quantum-tunneling drive he should be just fine. oh remind him to remove any copper coins from his pockets.  the magnetic fields will interfere with his resonance and he'll be screwed.  nickel too.  anything ferro-magnetic.  in fact it would be best to wear no metal zippers either.  nylon.

    love is always the carrot on the stick isn't it?  not just with religions mind you...  a new job, that shiny new car, the new house you buy...  a warm place to land and stay is what i'm looking for.  not a carrot on a stick.
