Itís good to be alive right about now.

It's also good to know that nothing separates us or those denying the power of God from the love of God. We are made out of love and made for love. I cannot turn away from those who deny the power of the love of God, other than their belief systems that i was convinced of myself.

Amen! Miss H, it was the fall of that year when i began to see things differently, prior to that i thought seeing the great truth of Universal Reconcilation was where it was at, i did not realize it was the gateway to something far greater.

The rain begin to pour. "Is it just another thunderstorm?", the people wondered. It continued to pour for days on end. Concern set in. It continued to pour and pour and pour as the floods raged; fear and panic struck, but it was too late because Judgement was being executed on the unrepentant. Scoffers had no scoff left in them anymore. Everybody died. Only those in the ark of safety lived.
So when the rain starts ans continues for 40 day s and 40 nights, I might come knocking on the door of he church.

Again, evangelicals are using an event, that is 89% mythological, if not certainly a T A L L tale told some 3500 years ago to create FEAR and MANIPULATE pipe in the modern era.

There in lies the real problem evangelicals have--THERE IS NO RECENT EVIDENCE they can offer, and even the 2500 plus year old written word is so suspect....

As for the F E A R of judgement, what is there exactly to fear?

If one TRUSTS god, and respects god, and LOVES god, what the hey is there to FEAR? I feared my daddy only because I never KNEW what he would do or who he was from one day to the next---The only reason to FEAR someone is because we are unable to have a relationship with them and engage in a conversation.

JUDGEMENT?? Life on earth is HELL and everyday a JUDGEMENT for the marginalized who have no food, shelter, health care, education, clean water, and all the other BASICS of life...

Yet the evangelicals are ONLY concerned with dying????

For too many of us, DYING would be a blessing, and since the evangelical church REFUSES to do as Jesus did and SHARE resources, the marginalized DIE believing god has no interest in their existence now, why would god care about them after death...
