I had a stupid dog once...chihauhau/dachshund mix...my mouth dropped when I 'saw' how stupid he really was...
compared to my other dogs I'd had...his little brain just didn't get the simplest things.

BUT, I also saw how...so what...stupid things can be loved, too...and deserve love.

I am amazed at things I read here...Jesus has a lot of patience and compassion!
Boy, oh boy...but after all, it seems apparent God did not create a smart bunch down here.
I mean, come on...
Talk amongst yourselves.

Why create a bunch o' bozos? LOL

Oh, notice this was posted 11:11 so it must be an imp thread topic, right? LOLOLOL

One way to stay on for years at city data forum is to listen to Jesus and Jesus said `` don`t forget the leaven `` which means to resist the sin of pride , as pride is like puffed up leaven which is a hotly ethics , were patience and humility can be practised

It's the only way to produce wheat. Why was the tree of life hidden? Why were the people given different languages so they couldn't unite and speak to each other at the tower of Babel?

Timing, there is a time for death and a time for all to be born on one single day, and there had to be enough time for all those who were to be born, to be born. Josephus Flavius says some of this. He says that there are a certain amount of people to be born, and all the appointed have already lived. A certain amounted were appointed and the Earth could not sustain them all at once and so there were 6000 years appointed to be tried and sifted, and that one day, none would proceed the other and all would be born on a single day. Tishri 15.

The kingdom of heaven is like you, it is always of you, just know that. The 3 meals of measure are body, soul, and spirit, and the leaven is mixed in the 3 you are. Sowing in the barley, sifted and separted in the wheat, and becoming a new creature in the fruit. Becoming a tree where everyone comes to be taught is not like being grains as barley and wheat, you have become a covering and a shade where your fruits are many, and you teach many because you have become the oil and wine

It is because of the desire to understand the parables that pushes a person to study 16 hours a day.

I am the most obsessive cumpulsive person which means I can't be in my own head, I have to be obsessive all day long that my mind doesn't go blank to remember things I don't want to think about. When I learned what was wrong with me, I chose my obsession, it wasn't the bible at first, it was the Houston post crossword and I almost couldn't go to work unless I finished it. I never slept, I only searched for answers. I realized then that something was wrong with me, and so I chose my obsession and made a 5 year plan. The first year I read none of the New Testament, I sat in to reading the old from cover to cover 2 times a week, and that is all I did, usually more than 16 hours a day. I took jobs that allowed me to do that. I read nothing but Josephus for 6 monthd all day long, and then I got the book,'' The 7 feasts of Messiah,'' by Eddie chumney and I wore out 3 copies of that book, 2 copies of the Temple by Edershine. I have been doing this for 20 years now. I find things to obesses, like I might study nothing but the song of Solomon for months or whatever I get on. When I was on ezekiel for about 3 years, everyone told me to stop posting about Ezekiel lol. I have no life other than studying the bible, it's the air I breath, messed up huh?

Tell ya what's messed up, That was like 95, and couldn't break free of the Houston post crossword,I was obsessed about it and didn't want to leave it, and when I was strugling with that obsession, I grabbed a post and the first thing I read,'' The Houston Post will be ceasing it's publication in 94, 95, and I almost had a freaking heart attack, but now I look back and almost feel guilty all those people had to loose their jobs because of me. ..........It was so strange the way it all happen.
