2 Kings 2:23-24 And he went up from thence unto Beth-el: and as he was going up by
the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said
unto him, Go up, thou bald head: go up, thou bald head. And he turned back, and looked
on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears
out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.
None of the secrets of success will work unless you do.
Don’t worry about what others think, they don’t do it very often.
If you never make mistakes, you’re not trying hard enough.
If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.
Life may not be the party we hoped for but, while we are here we might as well dance.
Going to church, temple, or mosque doesn't make you religious any more then standing
in a garage makes you a mechanic.
I refuse to tip toe through life only to arrive safely at death.
Once I was there too, as a believer and the son of a preacher I was dedicated to
the cool-aid so to speak.
I went to a Christian college and received a BA in Religion & Philosophy and later
a BS in Education. But there are some really awful things in the Bible and I finally
realized that I could not believe in a god that acted like that.
I mean, a god that gets mad
at his own creation because they ate of the tree of knowledge? So he curses all
that haven't even been born? And later murders them all in a big flood. And then
them from the curse by basically having himself tortured to death (in the form of
half god)? And then they still aren't saved from the curse unless they believe this
So the vast majority of people, raised by non Christian parents,
will be tortured in hell forever while the believers watch in heaven, warming their
from hells fire, and enjoying the show as they sing "How Great Though Art" for all
eternity.... What's not to believe. Makes sense if you don't think about it.
There’s a lot more unbelievable things in there, just don’t have room for it all
Matthew 6:5-6 when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are:: for
they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that
they may be seen of men. They have their reward. But when thou prayest, enter
into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father
