    Y-E-S! -- I got it, if I can find it after a while. Thank you!
    I wasn't very blessed about stuff like that.
    My wife laughs at me when I tie my shoes.
    Peace.

    How can I change my picture on my pages?

Your eternal destiny is on the line. I have tested my view for decades. Outside of your limited knowledge and experience lies reality you can only dream about.

The good on the side of the great spirit / God, and the bad thoughts on the side of the great evil Spirit Satan. It’s all just thought in the spiritual realm of thinking. That’s where ALL KNOWLEDGE exist, hidden deep in our minds to be found, not created. All knowledge, has always existed, not just the stuff, therefore we look for it. We just call it Holy, because the Thoughts are so Holy.

    Boy that was easy.

    And your proof your god is the source of all laws would be... (without quoting the Bible; its not evidence of anything rational)?

    We seem to agree... except for that god nonsense...

    Out of context, no, it isn't a red herring to make such a statement. However, in context, it IS a red herring because your statement has nothing to do with the topic except to attempt to take the discussion in a direction you think you can prevail. To refresh your ever-so-tenuous memory;

    "A Red Herring is a fallacy in which an irrelevant topic is presented in order to divert attention from the original issue. The basic idea is to "win" an argument by leading attention away from the argument and to another topic."

    Again, you're trying to change the subject. You see, I have no "world view" (whatever that may encompass).

    As for proof the Christian god doesn't exist, well, that is demonstrated by the total lack of evidence that he/she/it does exist. Recall, I am not obligated to prove a negative. If your god exists provide the evidence.

    According to God’s Spiritual Laws, God created all things in the beginning.

    Hi Aimiel,
    Your statement above interested me, but I do have a twist to add to your comments.

    I one of those who does believe that God has existed eternally... but not necessarily created things. God did not create things out of something some people call - NOTHING. Some sort of pile of NOTHING or some sort of totally void place called NOTHINGNESS did not somehow co-exist with God.

    The very fact that God is considered to be infinite and omni-present rules out that NOTHING can co-exist with HIM.

    God did speak his WORD to bring things into being ... but these things were established from the essence of God himself. By sharing his nature; establishing rules of behavior within HIMSELF for the functioning of created things; and by setting boundaries (forming realms) where things can exist, then God brought things into being.

    God has existed eternally, but the created things have not.

    So I agree with what you said here:
    God created everything that exists out of His Word, with no other ingredients
    Yet, I would say it this way:
    God created everything that exists BY HIS WORD. There were no other ingredients other than God's own nature, for BY HIM and FOR HIM, all things were created (Colossians 1:1 and BY HIM all things CONSIST. (Colossians 1:17)

    Once again HIS nature is infinitely eternal - not us.

    You said:
    I also have to add that when one is born again, we become a new creation, one that never existed before. We become a whole new creature.
    I so agree with what you wrote ...
    Also, consider that God lost nothing of his nature to create us or looses anything in order to re-create us.

    Our eternal life ... is futuristic ... for we had a beginning point, but will continue forever forward ... but God is eternal in all manners / past present and future.

    Yes they did.

    I sent 72 manuscripts to 72 of the top places, such as M.I.T. and others. It was like giving the world the Gospel. Guess what.

    I did get a summons from the Governor of Ohio, but that fell through, because Reagon was being chosen.
    Peace.
