Mr Shaman...maybe you should read the letter again...my comment was made to show Dot her hypocracy....we all have free will and we all sin and its our individual decision to ask the Lord for forgiveness...and we have no right to judge the way others choose to live their lives..

1Corinthians 2:14 "Now the natural man doesn`t receive the things of God`s Spirit, for they are foolishness to him, and he can`t know them, because they are spiritually discerned."

Thanks, for proving my point.

Ol' Skippy the dipsh-t sure comes off as an abject idiot! Where's Skippy's (so-called) intelligence? Skippy seems to get his jollies calling those with whom he (disagrees) names and (completely) misusing certain punctuation (marks)! Brilliant (crap) Skippy!

You need to spend a "little"-less-time concerning yourself with what other people will be doing (when they're judged for their sins), and start workin' on your own hypocrisy.

You should heed the advice you (give) yourself, Skippy!

I know, right. And then there's this Congresswoman from CO writing gun-grabber laws that thinks magazines are bullets. Her office later clarified, saying she misspoke and meant to say that clips are bullets.

Hello usa.. speaking of laws, how about this one.. two republican legislators in North Carolina submitted a resolution to make Christianity the official state religion. Apparently select representatives don't believe in the first amendment. The proposed resolution includes language attempting to argue that the state has the right to invalidate both federal law and federal court rulings.

That'd certainly answer a lot o' questions...specifically, how Lil' Dumbya Bush could (so carelessly) create so much misery, on this Planet. If his parents weren't cleaning-up (behind him), he could always rely-upon "the LORD".

So, how's this "antidote" magic-trick supposed to encourage responsibility & maturity...when you've got some entity "babysitting" you???

"Humanity was created without sin, perfect. However, God loves us so much that He gave us free will, the capacity to make choices. Very soon after we were created, we started making evil choices, and sin was born. As unbelievers, the only choice is HOW to sin, because human nature is to sin. Not sinning is not possible for a nonbeliever. If a believer sins, it is because he chooses to sin. A believer is never in a sinful situation without a way to avoid sinning, if he chooses it instead of the sin." - WKnapp

Yeah...you folks surely do seem to have all the "angles" figured-out.

"Dot, what shall you be doing when you are judged for your sin...." - clw1162

...And, what proof do you have, that's anyone's EVER been "judged", for ANY "sins"??

My guess is...people, in your cult, are the MOST "sinful"...seeing-as-how you're convinced you know of all the tactics ("required") to be "forgiven".

You need to spend a "little"-less-time concerning yourself with what other people "will be doing" (when they're "judged" for their "sins"), and start workin' on your own hypocrisy. I'd say you folks, who profess to be "saved", have quite-a-bit-more to answer for.

...the speed limit on US Rt 220 is 55MPH from Montoursville to Jersey Shore. Minor point, good illustration!

GOD tells us what is right and lets us decide to follow his law or not. Just like the speed limit on RT 220 tells us to go 55MPH between Williamsport and Jersey Shore.

Its been said that God created the Universe and everything in it...

Yet was unable to create a single race that wasn't infected with Murders, Rapist, Liars, cheaters, thieves, and on and on...??

Why..?

This seems more like the Devils work..!

speaking of laws and more laws......

A contingent of liberal Democrats in Congress is proposing a new federal gun control idea: mandatory liability insurance for gun owners.

When New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney introduced the legislation last month with eight other Democrats, she boasted that it is “the first bill to require liability insurance of gun buyers nationwide.”

Maloney’s “Firearm Risk Protection Act” requires gun buyers to have “a qualified liability insurance policy” before they are able to legally purchase a firearm.

It also calls for the federal government to impose a fine as much as $10,000 if a gun owner doesn’t have insurance on a firearm purchased after the bill goes into effect.

“It shall be unlawful for a person who owns a firearm purchased on or after the effective date of this subsection not to be covered by a qualified liability insurance policy,” the bill text reads.

The bill would also make it a federal crime to sell a firearm to anyone without i

Anyone who is in Christ doesn't face judgement, or penalty. I love the bumper sticker that says, "I'm not perfect...just forgiven!" Passover is a foreshadowing of what Jesus does for us. God allows us to believe wrong things if we wish. He doesn't force us to do anything. The choice is ours.

The premise of the author's letter is that there is a Creator, that said Creator has a relationship with the inhabitants of this planet, and that the author knows what that relationship is. The questions the author asks are relevant only if you subscribe to all three of the three premises mentioned above. I happen to believe the first premise and not the second or third premises.
