  1. I am very saddened to hear of Rev Al's passing. A kind and helpful friend on the forum. He was a peacemaker. I shall remember him.
  2. So saddened to hear of Rev Al's passing. He made many contributions to this forum and was a peacemaker. I shall miss him and remember him. Peace.
  3. Judging people is not my job description as a Christian. Loving people is. I may judge certain acts as immoral but only among other Christians. I am not to be concerned (in a judgemental way) with the behavior or beliefs of non-Christians but, by my behavior, I am to emulate what a Christian believes. I read in Scripture where God promises to reveal Himself to those who seek Him. I cannot limit God to what I think are the rules of revelation. If a person is seeking God and winds up in a temple, a synagogue, meeting hall or a mosque...who am I to judge? I am told to express my beliefs "wh
  4. Ive been away for a bit and just saw your post AV. Your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Peace.
  5. I strongly agree. If in doubt, simply ask the Lord for guidance in your prayer(s) and then open your mouth.
  6. Of course, Dan, as you and I, as examples, searched for God, we were led to the scriptures or a church meeting or whatever. And, as a Christian (sometimes I dont like using that word becasue of the current connotations attached) I believe in, by choice, the Bible. It has been my guidebook and proven itself to me to contain factual promises from God in my life, so I cherish it deeply. I also believe Isaiah 53 and other prophecies to be about the Christ. That is where I believe God led me. And even if 53 is not what I believe it is, it isnt enough to even consider renouncing my faith. As far as
  7. I have come to the conclusion, through personal experience, that certain truths are self evident. 1. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. 2. He who calls upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved. 3. That we do not discover truth but it is revealed to us through God's Spirit. 4. That if we acknowledge God in what we do, He will guide us and 5. He who comes to Him, God in no way will cast out. Now, if this be so, if you are truly seeking God, you will find Him as He will reveal Himself to you IF YOU ASK FOR GUIDANCE and do not rely on your own understanding of things. How He does it an
  8. In a sense, we do ordain ourselves/each other, much like the early Christians, for some type of credibility, legality or perhaps thinking something magical will happen when the paper arrives. There are other reasons also, and everyone has their own. True annointing, however, comes from God and one does not need papers to prove it. I also think if one believes they are annointed, personally through a calling, or perhaps witness of others, application for an online ordination is the quickest route for the benefits of legal recognition. It has been made obvious to me here at ULC that ordination b
  9. Haiku for John Mom waters your grave plants and flowers with her tears; such a sad image! Your short life appears like a flickering movie in my minds eye screen. Did i hear your voice in the recess of my mind? Perhaps, just a wish. I look up and see white elephants in the clouds just as you did, son. Has it been a year or the same day repeated over and over? Purple morning haze changing to red and yellow; a new day begins A new day begins but you are not here with us - purple mourning haze Purple morning haze then yellow with three red stripes, your colors and flag Your colors and flag
  10. The spirit of the created, in death, returns to the Creator. If that's heaven, then yes.
  11. Thank you Bro Hex. I always knew you were Jung at heart. Peace.
