Our human side can sympathize but the Biblical side realizes that the man was making his spiritual reality a physical fact. "The soul that sins shall die"

A treacherous husband killing himself . . . Harold, there is a big difference between Judas killing himself, and a man who sinned killing himself.

If he was spiritually dead or was not spiritually dead is irregardless.

The words you used, are the similar to words I heard when I was without faith, that turned my stomach to those with faith.

My stomach turned reading this post . . . . . Christians are the biggest turnoff to Christianity at times . . . . . My JESUS, who is the author and finisher of this world, and who's life is depicted in the New Testament, surely grieved at this man's passing . . . . He is the WORD, and the did not look at this man as a treacherous husband, but rather he looked at this man with love and grieved himself.

AMEN!!! This is definitely the first time I find myself agreeing with someone who claims to be from "redneck hell!"

Look out church people! You might have a problem if...a former New Yorker agrees with someone from "redneck hell!"

Alan, you haven't seen a "secret handshake" until you've seen ours!

Well I am technically not "from" here...I transplanted myself from the Virginia Beach area....Mistake! We are scrambling to scrape enough together to go back! Yeah watch out church people! There are so many church people here that you can't fart without one of them getting a whif!

First, I am a Christian, who would like to find a church . . . because we are very removed from friends and family and live in a small town where the "center" of happenings is church . . . In other words, want to join for my kids.

Here's One of My Pet Peeves with "Church" People . . . . . "We've Missed You at Church" . . . I frequented my friends church about 5 times . . . every time she goes to church and we talk . . . she has to say "missed you at church today" . . . . we go to a birthday party at her home and there were a few of her "church family" there . . . each one of them have to say "they missed me at church"

The problem is NOT that they missed me . . . what they are saying is . . .hey we noticed you haven't come in awhile? Why not? Oh my gosh, they thought THEY could win me over to their doctrine, denomination . . . how foolish . . .do they believe their church service or their church family inspires me to Christ . . . it is Christ who inspires me . . . .I wish people in church's would just go to worship, and let me join in when I want to . . . .

At one church where we visited, same thing happened . . . when I was missing for about a year and was inspired to go . . . I got besieged by peole who were worrying about my salvation . . . . . church people drive me nucking futs!
