I'm sorry you two hipocrites couldn't have sat side by side. You could have traded your tricks of the trade on how to pose as Christians while infecting the innocent and ignorant with fatalistic lies from the pit of hell. I have no doubt your pastor is a kind, Godly man, but you...you sure must have them fooled. I seriously doubt they'd approve of your rancid, vile behavior on this forum while claiming to be under the umbrella of Christ.

Thanks for the reminder, MS. Yes, easier said than done, and it takes a lot of internal strength when dealing with Satan's emissaries. Demons quote scripture, but it's always out of context, distorted, or incomplete. This tool, in an earlier comment, claimed I had some weird fixation on death because I related a tragedy about a cousin of friends being hit by a bus. My whole point was that we always need to be ready because we never know when we've eaten our last meal. At the same time, this guy is posting up a story about a little boy ISIS murdered and forced the mother to eat some of the remains. The hipocrisy that oozes from him is embarassing. Will try to keep your advice in check.
Connor, I'm going to tell you a story today via email with the hopes of perking you up a bit, giving you some inspiration and energy, mental and spiritual. You need to know that you're far from alone and what another has been through and made it through without ever waning in faith, even though most would have.
MS writes: Good morning Christopher, Hope you city slickers are having a good day, we country folk are still trying to take selfies with our rotary phone...whew! Just can't get the hang of it.
Still trying to snap pics with rotary phones, and picking up a banana to talk when it rings, I see. Hmmm. Well, that's all just fine with me as long as the Lord of Lords and King of Kings has you on His list as His own. I can let the rest slide right on by. : )
Thanks Observer, I pictured him snickering as he sent the comment. What comes to mind for me is not some joke, but a broken man who felt he couldn't take life or his failures (addictions) any longer, and probably realizes since then what a terrible mistake he made. That's what I think about.
MS, Ladybug, good morning. Ever hear of novenas? They're popular up this way and in Massachusetts. People take out ads in the classifieds that consist of prayers they make up to Mary and various saints. The person will then instruct the reader to say the prayer however many number of times, and sometimes over consecutive days, and with other little instructions at times, and then they'll claim that whatever they've been asking for will be granted. Theu also have things they do with particular little plastic saint statues, such as St Thomas, I think, who is the saint of whatever and will bury him upsidedown in the front yard of the property they're trying to sell. Your last two comments reminded me of this. Sounds like occultism.

Steve, here's the issue: When anyone does speak out against Roman doctrine, doctrines which you, yourself know are an abomination to God, people are accused of hating Roman Catholics themselves. Nobody has ever said anything against the people, other than being blind and mislead, etc, only the church and those deceiving them. Once anyone has the knowledge, no true born again believer could remain within such a system filled with doctrines that God himself abhors; fatally false doctrines. John's shyness, lack of transportation, and lack of desire to interact aside, there's no reason he couldn't leave, sit at home, and watch Sunday services, etc, online. He chooses, with full knowledge, to call himself, align with, and remain within and part of a system that teaches wickedness.

Still not sure why people would go to a health insurance site for dates. But got to keep the comments on topic.
Hardi har har, US. Hey, they're looking for dates and being accomodated. Is this wrong?
Most here, including myself, ad nauseum, over the years have had the courage to speak out against it, over and over, and over, and over. Also, who is sacrificing love and kindness for truth concerning this false religion? Hi Frank, that one is for you. Speaking for myself, I've hit hard whenever Roman error is vomited onto this board by ecumenical deceivers and have always taken anyone to task who trys to spew nonscense and intermingle the ways of Rome with God's way. Makes me sick. I think all here have had this "courage" and don't really see anyone straddling the fence, playing both sides to retain a friendly demeanor with the dark forces of wickedness. Although, I'll admit that I don't always see some things as clearly as others. I do ignore more of it than I used to when I'd go on for pages refuting this or that because the same old, same old became exhausting. They both know better, so like you, I'll still, at times, speak out for the benefit of others. I feel like if certain things are left unanswered, it could give the false appearance of agreement to those peering in.
The point wasn't about communication. Who cares if anyone chooses to engage in conversation or not. The point is really about leaving before the sermon begins. That's why I said why bother, that's all.
SteveR wrote: There is a Church John wants to attend, it's an Evangelical one.
All I've ever heard him say is that even if he ever attended one, he would sit in the back, not speak to anyone, and leave before the sermon even begins. He's said this 2 or 3 times. I've never once seen him say anything about wanting to attend or make any changes. Maybe I missed it, but leaving before the sermon begins? Pointless.
Political correctness nonscense as the rest of the world peers in, laughing at the utter madness of the direction this country has taken. Not to mention a sitting president travelling the world to scold its leaders for their views and laws on sodomy and the like as he's made it his mission to be their ambassador, their advocate.
With the average cost of an epipen being over $600., there seems to be an alternative, and a much cheaper one at $10. Primary care physicians can prescribe a vial of epinephrine, and a syringe which can be administered subcutaneously. I know this doesn't have the same quick convenience of the epipen, but worth checking into for the cash strapped maybe.
