If you have read the Isaac Asimov Foundation trilogy, then you might find this YouTube video particularly interesting!
the heavens are more powerful than you can fathom richard. at the very end, if you're around (which i'm sure you won't be because that's probably a long ways away), you'll see the fire come out of it and burn the living hell out of everything evil that roams in this place. like I've said before many times, the little guy will eventually win just like he did 2000+ years ago. what's that good old saying from the movies when the underdog wins the game?Adam, to quote the Bard of Avon: "There are more things in heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
case in point => neo in the 3rd and final matrix movie (until of course, they release #4 next year).sometimes you have to lose to win
but even though that abandonedment lasted 6 years in my case, it is now back and the gifts are almost the same as they were previously. there are other parts to the story, but that is privy only to the monks. it seems as though a case like mine IS possible, because Paul pretty much contradicts his hebrew words when he speaks in corinthians, this:for it is impossible for those who have once been given a taste of the heavenly gift and have shared in the spirit, and then have fallen away once again into sin, to restore them again to repentence since they are once again crucifying the son of many to their own demise
perhaps that's the reason why there is heat that comes from inside my chest around the heart almost everyday I stay up all day and night? sometimes it gets hot as god damn oven in there. but I don't expect you or anyone else on this board to believe any of those words, because the spirit has a very high tendency to make his presence known in very controversial scenarios. perhaps he does that because he's hiding in secret? thus that's where you will find him. per the son:if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, etc.....each one's work will become manifest. it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what each one has done. if anyone's work was built on the foundationhe will receive a reward. if anyone's work is burned up, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved but only through the fire
that mistake is made all day long every day by almost every church member in the world. I see it every day by the catholics too. it happens to those who deny the truthful words of the victor and change them to cover their own personal fears.for when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites and seek attention, but rather go into a private room and pray to the father. and your father, who is in secret, will reward you
I knew you would come back with nonsense. the doctors can't do anything. but just know richard, like I say, when the spirit makes his presence known, there are usually other occurances surrounding it that makes it looks controversial. have you read about padre pio like I told you too? on the wiki page it says that a woman came forward after he died and claimed that 2 days or something before he had his vision of christ and received the stigmata wounds, he was seen at a hospital or clinic or someplace like that buying carbolic acid for the purpose of sterilizing needles to give kids flu shots or something. I'd have to read it again to know what he was buying it for. but there's yet another case where 50% are believers and 50% claiming that it's bull$hit. remember though, those are the exact statistics that jesus racked up when he was preaching too. coincidence? hmmmm....you be the judge, mr veteran.Yeah, yeah, I've heard it all before and it still smacks of wishful thinking fantasies. I'd see a doctor about feeling heat in your chest. Have you been eating too many jalapeno peppers on your pizza?
But your own religion says exactly that, Adam. Each of us has to individually decide to make (or not make) Jesus our personal savior. Isn't that what your side of the narthex always says? Obviously, I've made my decision. You disagree. I got that. But anecdotal tales of people doing nice things (like your Padre Pio story) has NOTHING to do with divine magic.you be the judge, mr veteran
