Re: Can you tell lie to yourself?

The phenomenon of "self-deception" is well-known and frequent. Here's a simple example. Your friend is being beaten by her spouse. You counsel her to take the kids and leave, for her own safety. thats my plight, only the spouse is my friend (never beats her, but a verbal abuser/drunk (my best frien...

Re: Vote for The Party!

"Biden is sadly currently showing signs of senility." Indeed. How pitiful, then, that he's the guy the Dems are probably put up against my employee. They, the Dems, have no one else. :us: TRUMP '20 :us: no that was 4 yrs ago with Billary the Queen corrunated(sp). today the Dems have what you had 4 ...

Re: Henry Quirk must be shut down

I am an entertaining keyboard player/vocalist. I make people in nursing homes and senior centers feel better through the use of music and humor. One woman in a home told me that I make them feel alive again. There are worse ways to make a buck. Can't imagine why you'd think it was a bad way but onl...

Re: I'm a Theist

have i insulted you in some way? are you saying i have? No, you've been very fair to me. I was just saying it was a safe thing to do, rather than taking on God. I have learned to be careful what I say about Him, and always try to encourage people to be careful not to cross over from questioning (wh...

Re: I'm a Theist

Well, the "went to Hell" part of that is debated -- it occurs in some creeds, but is not easy to substantiate Biblically-- but yes to the resurrection. its not debated bubba. That being said, you'll have a hard time explaining this, then: https://zondervanacademic.com/blog/did-jesus-really-descend-...

Re: Henry Quirk must be shut down

Re: I'm a Theist

Answering you: we have not one single example in Scripture of a soul going from Hell to Heaven. Not one. But we do find explicit teaching that lost is forever. So one can decide to believe what God says about that, or not...but to be wrong about this is to lose one's soul, so it's not a thing to ho...
