Any Christian writers interested in getting together and publishing a book Hubs for the Soul?
Sounds intriguing. What do you have in mind?
[17:86] And they ask thee concerning the soul. Say, ‘The soul is by the command of my Lord; and of the knowledge thereof you have been given but a little.’
http://www.alislam.org/quran/search2/sh … p;verse=85
With a little knowledge one cannot write a book, in my opinion.
paars, you don't understand the inuendo and sublety of American English.
@TroubledMan & Pcunix - why do you two always try to throw a monkey wrench into places where you clearly have no interest other than to cause dissent or smirk like a couple of know-it-alls'? There are many ways about which the concept of the soul can be written and to which creative writers can address their thoughts. If you're not into creative writing, than go work on some tech stuff somewhere and leave the creatives to do their own thing.
And I never claimed it. Do the Americans know a lot about soul?
They know much more about "soul food" than "souls in particular". That's why there's an obesity problem among young and old here in the US. Notice how preachers shy away from sermons on gluttony these days.
I would say no more than anyone else but the implication of 'Hubs for the Soul' would be taken to mean thoughts/hubs that nourish the soul, not hubs from the perspective of the soul. I guess the OPer would know best what he meant. No harm intended.
Yes, I would be interested in a group hub. I'm also a Christian writer. More
To the nay-sayers: I don't think he's literally thinking about writing about the soul. Heard of the books series, "Chicken Soup for the Soul?" It means inspirational stories. And even if the book is about people's understandings regarding the soul--so be it. People can write books on whatever they want and unless you are the publishing company through which they go, your belief in souls or no souls doesn't really change things for the book one way or another.
Bill Jordan: I would be interested in hearing more about this idea. What are your thoughts?
There are no sources of information about the soul, how could you even write a single paragraph let alone a book?
there are hundreds of Christian Hubs on Hub pages it would be easy you don't write Hubs any way
So what? Those aren't sources, they're just someones irrational beliefs.
"BBBLLLL-AAAAAA-PPPPPP"(Raspberry noise) And...moving right along...past the "know everything in the world" A Troubled Man guy...
'k, I don't know about anyone else, but there's no L, B or A in my raspberries. I'm thinking it's: "pffffffft"
Yeah WS43...but you ain't sayin' it with a Texas accent....duh!
LMAO!!! No reply, no comeback for that one, MPM! I lived in Oklahoma, so I can hear it clearly now.
"That there is just goobledegook...and a watch-a-ma-call-it...type of undersophisticated-type a'thinking...right there...I tell ya'. What'd'ya think...that I went and fell off the 'ol turnip truck yesterday...or sum'thing?
@wordscribe43-- "...there's no L, B or A in my raspberries. I'm thinking it's: "pffffffft"... (()) (())
The Holy Bible is a good place to start: Genesis 2:7 man became a living soul; and in the following: 1 Cor. 15:45; Deut 6:5; Job 14:22; Psalms 16:10; 19:7; 22:29; 23:3 (he restoreth my soul); Proverbs 6:32; 19:16; Isaiah 53:10 (thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin); 53:12 (he hath poured out his soul unto death); 55:3 (hear, and your soul shall live); 58:10 (if thou draw out thy soul unto the hungry); Ezekiel 33:5 (he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul); Mathew 10:28 (fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body); 16:26 (gain the whole world, and lose his own soul); 26:38 (My soul is exceeding sorrowful); Luke 1:46 (Mary said, "My soul doth magnify the Lord;); 12:20 this night thy soul shall be required;); Acts 4:32 (multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul; 1 Thessalonians 5:23 (pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved); Hebrews 4:12; 6:19; 13;17; James 1:21; 5;20; 1 Peter 1:22 (ye have purified your soul in obeying); 2:11 (fleshly lusts, which war against the soul); Revelation 6:9 (I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain;).
Clearly there is anough which refers to our souls, that nothing nobody needs to make something up!
Anyways...this sounds like a good idea. How does one get something like this started?
Some people cannot help but show their stupidity by posting....
While others don't even have to post to achieve the same effect.....!
I do not think this place would allow you all to so easily strip your hubs from here and publish them. From what I have seen of it, they would demand thier own piece of the pie from you all.
That's what you get for trying to think! Don't attempt it again!
You always attack people you do not know?
No, just those saying things they have no knowledge of. That would be you because you obviously don't understand that a hubber can remove their content when they please here. Now that's very telling.
read my statement right above your post.
And then go play by yourself.
You do not interest, nor impress me, in the least.
Darn! And I so wanted the approval of someone with no hubs nor understanding of the site at all. I am depressed!
Just cause I have no hubs does not mean I do not know, nor understand this site.
I actually have a couple few years of experience on here, Randy.
Good to see you have not changed a bit.
Then it is indeed hard to understand why you didn't know one can remove their hubs when they like if you've been here that long, Whobe! Nope, I haven't changed a bit. I'm still honest!
Honest?... Still thinking well of yourself, I see.
The statements you make can be called a lot of things... honest is not very often among them though.
But to each his own.
And I am sure you can attest to the fact that each and every individual interaction between author and hubs goes perfect and without any hassles to the author.
Believe it or not, there are bad reports out there on hubpages and dealings with them... the internet sort of over-flows with such things.
But if you think you know how every last dealing goes... then fine.
So you are accusing me of being dishonest? Someone hiding behind a silly fake name because they are afraid to use their real one is accusing me of being dishonest? Fine, feel free to point out my dishonesty if you dare, WhoBe!
And at no time have I ever inferred HP was the cat's pajamas nor was completely satisfactory to me. I don't know what you mean about the interaction between an author and their hubs as I've had no problem writing and publishing here. Perhaps you will deign to give us all the benefits of your vast experience here after you've exposed my outrageous dishonesty to all on this site. Please be gentle!
"author and hubs", hubs = hubpages.
You are the one speaking as if you know how each and every dealing between hubpages and authors goes. not I.
I simply said it is not always roses and perfume... and you take offense to it... too bad.
And I said your statements are many things... most that I have seen are attacks.
But you call them what you will.
Who, we retain all of the rights to our work. Hubpages is a self-publishing forum. We are told not to produce duplicate content online but print is a different thing.
I know a few people who publish on here and have for years, and I have heard horror stories of trying to get ones work removed form this site to use in other formats.
Maybe they were just flukes is all.
Who, really? That is the first I have heard of that.
Yes, that sounds like a great idea, Bill. I have written some inspiratiional hubs. I can send you the links, if you like, and also some of my favourite Christian writers. Blessings.
It is harassment that people are allowed to hijack a threat devoted to Christianity like this. And the implication that all people of Christian persuasion are somehow slow and stupid is simply complete prejudice.
If someone had an idea about Christian hubs, good manners would let people who are not interested or in favour, to simply ignore the thread and stick to threads that they are interested in, or in favour of. I am a Christian writer and should not have to feel as I am going to be mocked if I mention that fact in the forums. From my understanding, this forum is designed for all writers, not just the atheist or agnostic writers.
Correct, PP! All writers are welcome to post on any thread here. If you wish for no one to disagree with you or criticize your cult then you are in the wrong place. There are a "god's plenty" of purely christian sites for just such bible thumping.
Who did Bible thumping? And how could you criticize anyone's "cult" as you put it, when you know nothing about them? This is personal harassment, pure and simple. Saying I am a Christian is not "Bible thumping,." I don't think anyone in this thread did any Bible thumping. They simply made a move to communicate with people with similar beliefs.
Are all writers welcome to comment on any post, even when it is nothing to do with them, simply for the purpose of harassing someone for their beliefs? I think that is questionable. At the very least, it is in poor taste.
Just like me, you are entitled to your opinion, PP. And by the way, do you believe those not in your cult will go to hell if they don't believe as you do? I would guess no, as that would be a type of harassment and you do not like that, correct?
And yes, feel free to comment on any post you like, such as a pro-abortion thread or something similar you might not agree with. See how it works?
Randy, i don't really need lessons on how the forums work, but thank you so much.
This thread, though, was not a discussion started about debating religious or spiritual questions. It was a thread started for the purpose of connecting people of similar faith. It was not a thread to discuss if we think Christianity is a good faith. If there was a thread started on abortion, then an opinion on abortion would be appropriate.
But as always, I regret saying anything on these forums, on this topic.
My mistake then, PP! It's just that I was raised in the middle of the Bible Belt and saw how narrow minded most christians were and how most of them had no idea where the bible came from at all. Most thought the novel was written by god himself and never realized it was simply myths and fiction. This cult has done irreparable damage to the world and is still doing so today.
Randy, sorry you had some bad experiences. I've met nice people and mean people from all belief systems. And smart people and people that aren't as smart, from many different belief systems, too. I know and respect people who are Muslim, Jewish, Catholic, Hindu and believe in Traditional Indian religion. To me, I try to respect them, whatever their beliefs, even if I disagree with them. To me, the exciting thing about a writing forum is the opportunity to learn from many others who don't necessarily share my background or beliefs.
No problem, I've learned how to be a better person by using some of the local self-professed christians as an example of how not to act. If there were a god, I would thank him for not making me a christian.
You will learn a lot from these forums if you really want to. But only if you can listen with an open mind, something most of your faith have a problem doing here. I don't know if you inherited your religion like many here, but if so, it may be tough to accept the real truth about the Bible. It is for most.
Anyway, good luck to you!
What is called for, by those in favor of the concept, is a plan for contact and communication apart from our detractors.
billjordan, I'm more of a politics and social issues writer but I would be interested in reading some Christian spiritual hubs.
It seems that a lot of non christian like to hate on christian writers we have a right to write and be on Hubpages as anyone else. But getting back to what I was asking here send me and E mail of your top inspiration Hubs and we will get this project going. Williamjordan_49@msn.com.
If you're going to write about the Christ, be sure to put his name on the cover or it'll be pure garbage. If it is truly inspired, leave your name out of the binding and take no credit.
No one is hating you and no one is stopping you. Paranoid much?

I have written several hubs and only this one has been flagged as low quality. (Shock-Horror)I tried to tweak it yesterday, and I also removed a few Amazon capsules, believing that may have been the problem. However the status is still the same. I wonder if anyone could give me an idea about...

Jennifer - first of all ... don't ask for readership. Let it come. And it will come if you do the following:1. Read others work and comment/ rate it2. Take part in the forum, even if it's just asking for help or offering help to others3. Publish hubs of interest to your fellow hubbers4. Rate up...
