I don't want to consider it. Because what your way is thinking is deluded and not from God. You want to spread a prosperity gospel which is false. You might as well not spread it at all! I cannot believe your talking to me about "getting it" when none of you have "got it" yourselves even after practically your whole lives as Christians. I REFUSE to spread the lukewarm word of God. Absolutely refuse. He is coming soon! What part of that don't you people understand?! Jazzymom's nation Israel became a nation in 1948!! And now earthquakes are happening literally everywhere and famines and pestilances are on the rise and there is rumors ABOUND that we're about to head into a war. There is not anytime left! We need to get people saved and get them the REAL word!

Being loving is not "lukewarm".

It's starting to sound a little scary on here... Should I lock my doors?



Yes but make sure you have a supply of beer.......

We do because people keep bringing it over and we don't drink very often!!! It's actually taking up the fridge! We try to pawn off beers on everyone who comes over! Wanna come over?

No Allen I didn't say you were close to Atheism I said you were afraid of it, that's all. There is no reason to fear when you are grounded in your faith, which you most certainly are but you're not showing the love of Christ in your posts. That's all I'm saying. And thanks for apologizing.

I'm not talking about your specific beliefs,I'm talking about the importance of getting along with other posters.It benefits no one and brings no one to your way of thinking if you decide not to get along with them.

Oh absolutely. Believe me, I know!! I even have a friend from Israel I contact with every other week. He tells me all about Israel and what a great country it is. But the irony is...He's an Agnostic Jew. And very...much like Jazzymom. Let's say that much. I try not to get into argument with him but he doesn't want to listen to anything I have to say about the Bible and prophecies concerning his own country. Oh well. What else is new in this world?!

But do you not understand that most of these posters have already MADE their decision who they wish to worship?! They are not changing anytime soon so what is the point if they are just being rude and mean and for us to sit back and take it?
