 in response to susie's son...   

Attack? What attack? What are you talking about?! Why does everyone think i am an atheist or something? Am not. I am a Christian who respects other religions beside Christianity. I live 800 miles from Rome. I visited The Vatican twice. In 1986 I had a audience (don't know if this is the correct Eng word for it) with John Paul II. Shaking hands and a 3 minute talk. That was it. That's probably what's am worth. No more, but also no less. If you didn't know, the pope is human. Flesh and blood. Warm personality. At least JP2 was. It all made me changed my ideas on religion. There is no such thing as the only true god. This doesn't show any respect towards others. Did you read any of the words i wrote? You all started to flame me as if am some kind of intruder you want to chase away. I think i better leave you all in peace. I didn't want to mess up your Xmas eve. But u sure messed up mine.

One more thing. Next time you are in church, remember:

"People who are needy don't give a shit about your prayers."

 in response to FriskyFreddy...   I understood what you were trying to say.
Yes, the mind is stronger than the body and as you say it can manipulate itself or in other words Fool itself just like you are trying to in this conversation.
Who said anything about manipulating other peoples minds??
Being open minded doesn't have anything to do with respect.Except that you can understand their point even though you may not believe in it.

Number 2, unusual,I'm not asking you to lie. First you presume to pretend to be religous, if you aren't then you have already lied to yourself. You would only be lying to your"friend" if you didn't pray for him. Is it lying to give someone comfort? Only if you don't pray for them like you said, as I have stated before.

To be open minded you have to be objective. You have to know where the lines are and aren't. Just because a person thinks willy nilly doesn't make them open minded it makes them silly.You can show a person respect without being open minded.

You are correct to learn from one another and from thier and your mistakes.Yes, the goal would be to become a better person.

Oh, come on, you were making some sense, now? To become all! You are trying to tell me that you can learn enough in one life time to become one(all), the ultimate.You'd have to live two life times to reach the life experience of Jesus the man and many many more to reach the experience of Jesus the spirit of God.
You said that I have provenso far, yet you didn't say what. I , not once said that you said thet I had a closed mind. I was pointing out that your mind is not so open as you claim. What I have proven is that you do not know what you are talking about, it's like the addage," I hear you knocking but you can't come in."You think you do thus the manipulation of your own mind, trying to fool yourself. In both post I have been teaching yo and you have not noticed only to argue your so called point, which was that you have a more open mind than the rest of us. Why? Supposedly because you come from Europe and they have more open minds than what, who, the Americans, North Americans, or just us who are on Aidpage, making you oh, so superior because you have an open mind.
As you have stated you must learn from one another. You have not learned a thing. You must hear to understand. You hear the thunder of your mind trying to start, like a car engine but it doesn't turn over and start.
I would not be offened if you told me that you believed in something different,or that you didn't believe at all. It is of no consequence to me. I believe the way I believe and another person can believe in anyway that they want to. Even if they claim that they don't believe, they must believe in something,doesn't have to be religous, even if it's their belief that they believe it.
You haven't dissapointed me, with the statements that you have made, I had higher expectations and you didn't come close.You are sorry, No I am.
May God Bless whoever your beliefs sees God to be.

 in response to nini3...   Wow! I am not here to read. I am here to help.
You try to chase me away. are ya? Maybe you are right. I better go start my own aidpage.
There is no need to convince me of anything. I know God. I am a Christian myself. But who cares? God? The people i try to help? Or you? It must be you and your friends here. It is good to defend your God. Or better: our God.

I think i misjudged this webpage. Again! The reason why i stayed away the first time was because someone had the brilliant idea to make a competition out of this. That idea made me realize no one on aidpage actually cares about any only but themselves.
btw. Who won?

 in response to Schmidty...   It is obvious you didn't understand a word i wrote.

1. The mind is stronger then the body. If you really believe in something, whatever that something is, you can manipulate your own mind. That is one of the reasons i don't mind people being religious or not. Every effort in trying to manipulate other peoples mind is wicked. People have minds of there own you know. Respect them for what they are.

2. Maybe it is. What if i pretend to be religious and tell a sick friend i will prey for him because i know it will give him comfort. Are you asking me to lie?

You are talking about being objective. I was talking about being open minded. Showing respect. Learning from one an other. If someone teaches you something new, you can use this new experience, to become a better person. Becoming all is the ultimate.
Although you have proven so far, i didn't say you have a closed mind.

It seems that you would be offended. Else you wouldn't say such thing unless you think it has impact on me. Sorry to dissapoint you. Have a nice day.

 in response to FriskyFreddy...   Prayers are never wasted on anyone and I will pray for those who ask for it , and especially for those who think they don't need it.
I don't have negative energy toward you, or anyone else. Life is to short to waste time being negative and it does not accomplish anything good. I choose to focus on the beauty of life and the peace that God provides.
I am sorry that you feel the people here are being hostile toward you, and that you are unable to grasp what so many here are trying to explain to you. You have a right to believe any way that you choose to, but you should not attack those who believe differently.

I personally know of a family, husband, wife and two babies under three who live in a motel. They pay by the day and although the husband works 7 days a week, they are unable to collect enough to pay past the daily rent. The daily rent is $57 and if you add that up it comes to over $1700, in rent per month. He works all the time and can support this but cannot save enough for rent plus deposit in order to live in an apartment. Any ideas? They need an investment by someone into them. I've met them and they neither smoke or drink or do drugs and are trying to get out of the motel cycle. Any ideas would be welcome. I live on the edge myself and still do what I can. Thank you... P.S. they are losing their room as of xmas eve day. They live in Southern California.

 in response to FriskyFreddy...   Hello, I am responding to you in the spirit of peace. You fill the void of your heart with goodness en warmth of people and I need to ask where do you think the goodness en warmth of the people come from?
Talk to positive thoughts
 in response to FriskyFreddy...   You claim to be open minded and that the whole of Europe is.That is strange.

If you can believe in the power of prayer for the person then then why not for others. With that open mind you must be able to see that:
1. That if that person can believe and has faith strong enough to heal themselves then why not for others?

2. It is comforting to know that some one else cares enough to speak to their most high on your behalf, is that not a healing aspect therefore they are in effect healing or helping? If not by being a comfort alone? Having any part no matter how minute of that person's well being does not seem to be useless.

What is useless is someone who claims to be one thing and is another.Usually a person with an open mind "tries to see all sides" that's what open mind means. Funny, for a person that has a closed mind, I am explaining to a person who has an open mind What an open mind is. Is it not. Oh, wise one. Which by the way is another aspect of having an open mind.

Open mouth , insert foot comes to mind.

Whether it is useless or not I will pray for all who needs and wants it. Jesus did and it is still working today. Talk about power, talk about an open mind or closed one, however you want to look at it.

May you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Properous New Year, and if that offends you thenI'll say have a Merry Merry and a Happy Happy , and not tough shite. May God Bless
