I talk about the law a lot, but I am no where close to even trying to keep it as Jews keep it. I shouldn't eat pork cause it isn't supposed to be good for you, but I gotta have me some pig. I don't keep any days, or Sabbaths but I would like to, it just isn't possible when your family doesn't have the same holy days but I don't judge them anymore like I used to.


Even if my family isn't exactly in the same religion as me, what I do and who I am proves that I am no where close to them. I am a black sheep of the family and if somebody wanted to show a bad example, it would be me.


I often say,'' So what, I was a bad father showing a bad example, but sometimes maybe that's what kids need.''

I rationalize, but even as bad as I was, all my children are successful and they don't do what they saw their father do, and this may be because they were so disgusted, it turned them to seeking righteousness lol.

As long as they aint like me.

Yes, for you prayer is abolished . . .

The obvious conclusion is that ALL the forms of Law have passed away AS basis for judgement. Now we are judged by the condition of our hearts.
y'know, i have observed--chiefly in witnessing people whom i was told i would surely love, and i absolutely detest--that those most like us are least likely to be appreciated by us; while it is those who are most different from us that we seem to be the most appreciative of. it's like a competition thing, or something. dunno.

Or, must one starve to death because Religiosity runs to, and fro like a rabid dog?

Consuming whom it may devour!
we manifest from our spirits, and must reap what we sow.

but hey, who am i to talk; i am doing my level best, and not one, single person or entity is even trying half-heartedly to kill me yet.
and we are much worse off than Cain, in a sense, now; we allow others to plow our own ground for us, we cannot even be bothered to do this, in the physical sense, anyway.

i am reminded here that Jesus did not go to Temple to find His Apostles, but rather went to fishermen, a historically rough bunch. Sorry that your children are successful, Hann.

You know Han, I have seen this principle at work many times in families over the years. But I'm still at a loss to explain it (spiritually) exactly. Some day. Peace

Certainly worked out that way for Abraham (the originator of our faith) and Isaac, didn't it? Peace
