  1. Gospel and Reincarnation

    and then we get into the discussion none of us agrees on,which is,"what is a soul,is spirit the same thing",yada,yada. i don't know either.
  2. hello all

    welcome to the forum.
  3. ignore feature

    i guess it depends on who it is.if it's a mod or someone like that,you can't.
  4. i would also hope that for as long as we have"known"each other,you do not feel that way.i have a great deal of respect for you or i would not have requested your help at various times. i get nervous when people ask me,what happens after you die,and then try to stuff a boat load of verses from their book down my answer is simple;like the buddha said:"no one has come back to tell me". if someone finds whatever they are looking for in life,from wherever that's all good.
  5. that i understood,but mostly choose to stay out of those type conversations.
  6. not from the original poster.not sure what to expect from him.

  9. Racing with a tiger

    while it may seem that way,being color blind myself doesn't mean that i don't see colors,or what i may consider beautiful.i just see it differently than most other the way,most males are color blind.
  10. Greetings your country has quite a few laws concerning marriage.i can't find where or what religious persons are allowed to preform a marriage ceremony(legal). as far as a title,you decide that.
  11. Quiz-one topic

    you bring up some interesting points.but let me clear a couple of things up. first,i made some choices after exhausting what i understood to be all other means available to me at the time.for example,i applied for (and was turned down for)180 different jobs in one month. second,i did what i felt was best to survive at the time.right or wrong had very little to do with my thinking (suicide was a big factor tho).was anyone"hurt"by my actions?not that i am aware of.did anyone lose anything by my actions?just me as far as i know. would i go back and do it all over,NO!not even if that was the only choice i believed i had. please forgive my rant.and by the way,there is no such thing as absolution (as far as i am concerned).there is only learning from past and current actions.
  12. wow dan,i never expected an answer like that from are full of surprises.
