I find that in receiving, I receive. For example, I got this check I recieved from a client and I cashed it and got the cash. In receiving, I recieved.
And in giving, I gave and did not recieve, because I when and spent the money and for sure, I gave and they recieved. Sure I got what I paid for, so I guess in giving I received something. But it was not what I gave. I recieved something else.
Same goes for love and all the rest. So any attempt to redefine our words to mean the opposite doesn't fly as anything more than a clever play on words. Else, I might say, in cheating them, they are not cheated, and in stealing from them, they have not been stolen from.
Or, in desagreement with what you posted, there is agreement.
Lord, make us instruments of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let us sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is discord, union;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy;
Divine Master, Grant that we may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
In Jesus Name, Amen

Who is the one to stop the attack?
Last night a friend of mine, verbally attacked a mutual friend. I immediately felt angry and I believe there was some hurt under the angry feeling. I thought how dare her attack him. I wanted to come to his defense. My next reaction was almost one of attack to her. It was so close to automatic I barely caught myself. I've felt myself feeling the same way on this particular forum. I'm a firm believer in the freedom of speech, but when someone says something I think is bad or wrong, oh my God, watch out. No, not something bad or wrong, something I disagree with. To me, Jesus was a great teacher, there are many like him. He met attack with Love. How do I get to that point?
Lion, remember, you are the one that came to this forum and attacked me. You could have asked nicely why i made that statement(s). I would have answered you nicely.Its posts by people like you that caused all those fights so, you are the one in the wrong here, not me.
NOFUN, We both posted on the 20th. Now, since you came over to this forum just to try and pester me and you made the first post, i have the right to respond last THEN, we will be even and unless i see one from you, i will not address you again. First, you made a post and addressed someone else and when one does, it is subject to others response though you dont address the one responding. I simply posted, very nicely, a scripture that does not agree with your statement. That is not attacking.I personally, did not say one word.Second, i have never stated that i was or wasnt a Christian.Yours and others attacks is why. Different people have different views of what one is and i am not going to allow you or anyone else put your labels on me. I dont need you or anyone else to tell me what a Christian should or shouldnt say or act like.Yes, i am very knowledgable in the scriptures and that is all you need to know. Obviously, you arent one or you wouldnt be hand slapping that disgusting person that shames women with her filthy mouthed posts. As to Ed, he has stated he will behave himself so, we will see. I am with him as with you or anyone. Ask questions about my posts, debate with me friendly and you will never meet a nicer guy, post against me with smart remarks and/or attacks and i will respond.How you figure that you and others can attack me or smart off like you have and because i respond likewise and some how, i am the bad guy, i cant figure.Why dont you ask one of those mutual acquaintances that really knows me and they will tell you that i am exactly what i say in my profile and that i treated my x wife like an absolute queen.Even she will tell you that so, your impression of me was caused by you. Yes, you and others that attacked me first without me saying one word to you. Again, truce agreed.
NOFUN, as to not proving that your friends that practice witchcraft is indeed, evil, you must not be able to read very good, "Now, the works of the flesh are manifest which are these.....WITCHCRAFT.....that they which do such things SHALL NOT inherit the kingdom of God." Galations 5:19-21 Sure isnt good.so, it IS evil, no matter their intent.WRONG on that one. Two, i never mentioned people that we know in common because i have no idea who you know so, there wasnt anything to prove or dis-prove on that. WRONG AGAIN. Third, Saying i should be carfeful whom i post against sounds like a threat to me.I will remind you that YOU posted against me on the old message board FIRST then, you come to this forum looking for a fight - well, you got one so,stop your whinning if you cant take what you try to dish out. You are the jerk here. WRONG AGAIN. Fourth, the words written thousands of years ago still apply today. No, we arent under Moses law however, do you really think that time has changed Gods disgust with those that practice witchcraft? If you wonder, read above what God says about it today. WRONG AGAIN. Fifth, i have no idea what your pins and needles comment means other than, you are certainally no spring chicken yourself - makeup does wonders - doesnt it?Would you like for me to send a cushion over? I know your rear has to be getting sore from all the rear end kicking you get from me everytime you post and havent been able to sit down for some time now.. I thought i would help out as, i am sure you are tired of standing by now.
NOFUN, i see another post is coming from you. Why? You, like some others, feel i am so awful. I will remind you that YOU posted against me FIRST, not the other way. Same with NOHEART. You two came to this forum just to post against me. Exactly what reaction did you think you would get from me - a thank you for your smart or ugly post? HOTTRASH, first posted on here that she loved stirring up Christians and that it was fun. Two others that i have now made peace with, did the very same thing, came here and either smarted off to me or posted something ugly. Now, you seem like a smart woman so, maybe you should consider just leaving me alone. Yeah, i am going to punch people in the nose - until they do just that - leave me alone.There are many posts i would like to tell them a thing or two but, unlike you, i dont because it will just cause a fight - just like yours did with me.I have not posted against you, NOHEART, HOTTRASH so, all of you started it but, dont like what you got back. Its all up to you if you want this to stop or continue.
"and dont try to use any kind of magic or witchcraft to tell fortunes or to cast spells or talk with spirits of the dead.The Lord is disgusted with anyone who does these things....Never be guilty of doing any of these disgusting things!" Deuteronomy 18:10-13
