  1. The Telegraph 33 minutes ago: “A white van ploughed into a packed summer crowd this evening in Barcelona’s historic Las Ramblas district”

    The Telegraph 22 minutes ago: ‏”Barcelona terror attack:
    – Reports of a live hostage incident
    – Suspect driver fled on foot
    – One confirmed dead ”

    Those attackers are discusting creatures !!!

    • I saw footage of the carnage on cable tv news last night and it was sickening. Women and children were there.

      I don’t know when this insanity will end. People just living their lives and trying to enjoy doing normal things and then this. My heart breaks for those who were killed and injured and their families. My thoughts are with them.

  2. Mira Andi,

    My computer alarmed me! When I was on FB there was a loud noise and I got the alert that I had to call a number and pay money or all my data would be stolen. So I’m just scared but I’ll try going back but it’s scary — this is exactly what happened to my old computer when I was on FB before. Sad,

    • Oh really rc???Oh no!!….We’ve just connected on FB!!….Why this happening to u babe??Urgh!!…hey!…try to open another account…at the same time don’t shut the old one…there’s plenty of precious and memorable conversation between us in there…But,better bring your laptop to the expert first…try to delete that virus[if they can] and ask them to put anti Ransomware….if all not working,i guess we have to just connect here which is unsatisfying..if u know what i mean??

      • Yes, indeed we can’t be ourselves totally here — Not FAIR!! I miss FB already. So I’ll figure it out. Have to take it somewhere and get it checked. Why me? Why do I always collect a ransomware? That’s what I’ll ask the experts.

        • Yeah rc!!…To be able to chat/discuss tennis and acting /talking crazy with u on there was awesome feelings rc!!….i’m very very sad we can’t do that anymore…What’s more,i wanna be with u in a happy and bad times[if u know what i meant??]…But i’m not going to lose hope…i’ll be waiting for u k??Miss u there already!!!

          • Don’t lose hope — I will figure it out and we can continue our laughing attacks!! I love you MA! Must chat with my MA!

            • Yeah rc!!….I knew my stupidity will come handy someday!!!hehehehhawhawhaw!!….oh God rc!…I love u so much too!…urgh!..i’ve already plan in my mind to get crazy with u at USO!…I hope things will be okay at that time!…Please God!…Please help my rc!!

    • rc,

      It’s a scam! Shut it down! It happened to me about a month ago! An alarm on my computer telling me to call a number my computer would be disabled. I made the mistake of calling them. Once you let them access your computer then they will put in a virus and try to steal your information. I got fooled by them. Then they demand money to fix the problem that they created. A friend told me to call my bank and they knew immediately that it was a scam. I gave those people my bank card number. The fraud department at my bank blocked access to my online banking. They said that these hackers will gain access to your financial info and they can get your money.

      I had to call the Geek squad which services my computer to clean it out. Then the bank allowed me to have access to my online banking. They had me change my username and password. Then they had to block my bank card. I had to get a new one. Then you have to change the payment info everywhere. It was a mess!

      I hope you did not call them! This is a well known hacking scam!

      • Nny,

        I’m sorry it happened to you! This is the 3rd time in 3 years — the first time was 2014 the most sophisticated ransom — And FBI page appeared with my picture on it and it said I was going to be arrested for pornography if I didn’t call them so I called like what?– they even had accessed my camera and took a picture of me sitting at my computer. It totally wrecked a Dell computer.

        Now it seems the same as the one that screwed up my last computer but it’s completely low level ransomware compared to the 2014 one. It sounds like the same one you had. I called them and I knew right away I shouldn’t have. I shut it down. They didn’t get my info. But it was recent – early this year when I set up a FB account to chat with Mira and Alison.

        So as I said this is my 3rd time — exactly like the last one — it occurred when I was on FB. But I dare not use the computer too much maybe it has something to do with my FB account – or not. Perhaps just coincidental that it alarmed both times while on facebook. I don’t want to ruin my computer. I don’t bank online or buy stuff online because of that 2014 virus. I am paranoid!!!

        • RC!!…I am so sorry u had to go through that horrible stuff!!…This so shocking for me!…God!…the horrible things bad people would do for money!!…Now,i know why you’re so reluctant to use FB or email…Just be strong!and be patient k?…

          Nny!…I’m sorry to hear that it happened to u too!Hope everything’s okay now..

          • Thanks Mira for understanding. I really am traumatized by FB. So I need to find out if it’s somehow connected to an alias account like I have…I don’t know.

            • No problem babe!!…U never tell me the real reason why you’re so phobia about FB or email…i would understand it long ago if u telling me the truth…but,that’s okay!don’t worry..i knew u would do anything to stay connected with me & Al on FB…Besides…people usually can’t resist me after they taste my stupidity and idiocy’s!!..hehehehehawhawhaw!!…I love u babe!!

            • I wasn’t hiding information from you Mira, I just didn’t explain it very well before. Sorry. But I’m tempted to go on there right now — though I think it’s not a good idea. I miss our chats!

            • Hey that’s okay rc!…It’s certainly helping a great deal now i know what’s the real problem is…Tho” like u said it’s not fair coz we’re just clicked together and suddenly all the good things has to stop…But,that’s okay…if u want me…u just find me k?I’ll always here and on FB k?

            • Okay. But this is a temporary situation. I WILL Get my computer to a shop and maybe they and help. Be patient, okay?

            • Yeah rc!!…I will be patient and calm and at the same time practicing to kick your a#$ on WTA and you will kick mine on ATP!!hehehe…We’re two of a kind!!

  3. Some piano jazz ? because vintage David Ferrer. I remember sitting 4 hours watching him practice at Indian Wells. He wore out both Rafa and someone I can’t remember now that practiced with him after Rafa left

      • Hey rc!!,,,Yeah,i’ve already answered u on FB…and yeah i’m better than a week or so ago rc tho my body still adjusting i guess…Hey,u have fun with your little vacation?…When i was a kid,i also very fortunate to see a full eclipse a couple of times…It was awesome right?Make us realized,no matter how powerful we thought we are but in the end we can’t even match the God’s power….God is Almighty!…Allahuakbar!

  5. Joe smith i said i will respond to your comment soon but i couldn’t cos i was busy with a lot of things like work, sports and a very good friend of mine is getting married soon, so my days have been filled with joy & exhaustion.

    This is the comment you posted-

    “Stanley, you say this:
    “When I point out that an action or a view is wrong some of you say that I am judging and that I shouldn’t judge.
    When someone makes a righteous judgment is that wrong?”
    I wouldn’t say that it is wrong to make a “righteous” judgment, if by that you simply mean a “correct” or “true” judgment. But I suspect that you mean something different by “righteous” from what I do, something that merely assumes what I would deny (e.g. that the Bible is the word of God, by definition the truth, etc.)
    I realize that you are primarily interested in converting others to Christianity because you sincerely want to save their souls. However, if you are actually interested in *engaging* with others (at least, me), then you have to convince me that you are open to the possibility that your world-view is completely wrong. (I am open to mine being wrong, but you would have to convince me, and you’ve got a long ways to go).
    So I’ll ask you again: do you recognize the possiblity that you’re completely wrong about the things you post here: that Jesus Christ is not the son of God, indeed, that there is no God? If you answer: “No, I do not recognize that possibility,” then to me your mind is closed and I cannot have a rational conversation about these topics with you. (I suspect that many others feel the same, which is why you get so little response to all of your posts).
    If, however, you can honestly answer: “Yes, I recognize that all my beliefs about God and Jesus (and Israel and Planned Parenthood and many other things) *could* be wrong, then you show me that you have an open mind and I will discuss any of these things with you, if you wish”

    • God’s judgements are Holy and Righteous and it doesn’t matter what you think or i think, what you say or i say it won’t change a thing.
      God’s Word and Righteous judgements would remain the same Holy and Just.

      Joe smith you said “I realize that you are primarily interested in converting others to Christianity because you sincerely want to save their souls.”

      That statement is not accurate, it is God who draws the sinner who has recognized that without the mercy of God there is no hope for them and all these is done through the Holy Spirit.

      The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment(John 16:7-11)
      Sin is the truth about man/woman, righteousness is the truth about God, judgment is the inevitable combination of these two truths.
      The conviction of the Holy Spirit does not leave the sinner hopeless(guilty without redemption) but the Holy Spirit reveals to that sinner that while they have sinned against The Holy God, He has not left them without a way to obtain mercy and grace.
      Jesus said I am The Way, The Truth and The Life. No one comes to The Father except through Me(John 14:6).

      For we have all sinned and have fallen short of God’s Glory and God’s Righteousness can only be received by trusting in Jesus Christ(Romans 3:22-23).
      For the wages of sin is death(not physical death but spiritual death which simply means separation from God For eternity in hell) but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ(Romans 6:23).

    • As a christian some of my primary interest is to be thankful, faithful, worship and draw close to The One(Jesus Christ) who saved my soul and made me whole.
      When i can or When am given the opportunity am also interested in sharing the Amazing Love & sacrifice of Jesus Christ the Saviour of the world.
      Not to do so won’t just be ungrateful but wicked.

      As God He(Jesus) became man in other to die for the sin of the world(my sins, yours & the entire world), this gift of love is the greatest gift of all and it can only be received by the sinner putting their trust in Jesus Christ and His scarificial/finished work on the cross(death, burial & resurrection).
      Like every gift one has the opportunity to reject it or receive it, Jesus said “Behold, i stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him/her and dine with him/her and he/she with me(Revelation 3:20).

      This simply means we all have a choice to make, to reject or to receive God’s gift of salvation, He(Jesus) is standing and knocking at the door of your heart and the hearts of others as well, whether you open or close your heart it’s your prerogative but it’s my hope and prayer that you and so many more will sincerely seek God for His mercy, grace and put your trust in Jesus.

      I cannot and no one can convert anyone to christianity, it’s the decision of the individual who hears/receives the voice i.e the gospel of Jesus Christ and it is God who draws that sincere sinner who is truly seeking for forgiveness and mercy.

      Neither can i save a man or a woman’s soul, i can only point you and others to The Truth & The Saviour and His name is Jesus Christ.
      His the only one who can save a persons soul and He has made a way for all.

    • It’s important that i add this- simply believing in the existence of God doesn’t save anyone, it is faith/trust in Jesus Christ & his sacrifice that saves.
      The word of God(The Bible) points out that satan believes in God and trembles(james 2:19) but his faith is a DEAD faith which simply acknowledges the existence of God, this kind of faith doesn’t lead to salvation because it’s not Godly or real.

      True faith is not a mental assent, true faith is anchored in Jesus Christ.
      The word of God also points out that those who deny God’s word(The Bible) but more importantly those who reject Jesus Christ as Saviour will reap what the sow.
      In Galatians 6:7 it say’s “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, whatsoever a man/woman sows that he/she will also reap.
      It’s an agricultural terminology that is used to show that the decision we make for or against Jesus Christ have eternal consequences.

      In the book of Psalm 14:1 it say’s “The fool has said in his/her heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none who does good.”
      That’s not name calling but a description of the moral and intellectual position of the unbeliever.
      The hebrew word translated fool is “NABAL” is more moral than intellectual.

      Jesus said “And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light, because their works were evil.
      For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.
      But whoever does the Truth comes to the light, that his/her deeds may be clearly seen that they have been done in God(John 3:19-21).”

    • God has not sent anyone to hell, people go there by there own volition i.e by rejecting the Truth.
      The word of God is clear that God is not willing that any should perish or go to hell, but that all should come to repentance.

      God has made a way for all to be saved, it’s a free gift that no one can earn, you only receive it by trusting in Jesus.

      Ephesians 2:8-9 teaches that it is by God’s grace we are saved through faith and not by ourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.

      The scribes, the pharisees, the self-righteous hypocrites were puzzled and critical of Jesus for his friendly relationships with sinners, He not only loved them(sinners not their sins) but He shared the truth with them and finally He died for their sins.
      They complained to his disciples about His relationship with sinners but Jesus answered and said to them “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”

      Jesus’s answer was both simple and profound. Jesus is the physician of the soul, and it makes sense for Him to be with those who are sick with sin.
      Of course His critics were sick with sin also, but they refused to see themselves that way. They thought other people were sick with sin, not themselves.

      There are many possible reasons why a sick person might refuse the services of a doctor.

      1) Perhaps you don’t know that you are sick.
      2) Perhaps you know you are sick, but you think you will get better on your own – you don’t know that you need to go the doctor.
      3) Perhaps you know you are sick, and know you need a doctor, but do not know there is a doctor to help you.
      4) Perhaps you know you are sick, and know you need a doctor, and know there is a doctor, but do not know the doctor can help you.
      5) Perhaps you know you are sick, and know you need a doctor, and know there is a doctor, and know the doctor can help you, but do not know the doctor wants to help you.
      6) Perhaps you know you are sick, and know you need a doctor, and know there is a doctor, and know the doctor can help you, and know the doctor wants to help you, but you know what the doctor will tell you to do and you just don’t want to do it.

      Jesus is the perfect doctor to heal us of our sin.
      He is always available.
      He always makes a perfect diagnosis.
      He provides a complete cure.
      He even pays the bill.

      Glory to God!

    • Joe smith you also said this “However, if you are actually interested in *engaging* with others (at least, me), then you have to convince me that you are open to the possibility that your world-view is completely wrong.

    • Joe smith,

      Am a man and am not open to the ideal that am a woman, my skin is light brown am a black man but am not open to the ideal that am white, my name is stanley and no one can convince me that my name is ratcliff.

      By the way why is there a rat on a cliff? Please don’t jump but if you do i promise i will catch you, my sweeeeeet ratcliff am only joking don’t mind me OK, i love you & your name.

      My faith & trust in Jesus Christ is not a game and it’s not negotiable because i can’t deny The Truth or the wonderful works that God has done in my life.
      Am not a perfect person but i know who i was & how i lived before i put my trust in Christ, His been so good to me- Merciful, Gracious, Faithful and so much more.

      The difference between you and i is that my Faith is anchored on a rock(figuratively speaking) that’s unshakeable and that rock is Jesus.
      I know that when my time comes(death) i will dwell in the presence of the lord for all eternity.
      Even before Jesus saved me, i knew that there was a God, i knew that creation did not pop out but testifies that there is a Creator and the laws of logic, the laws that govern the universe are not there by accident but for a reason.

      Our body is also a testimony that there is a Creator whether you are a man or a woman.
      I majored in the science department when i was in school and after i graduated from the university i taught different science subjects for a while(just to be clear am between the ages of 26-28 and i wasn’t a good teacher, i was OK), after that i worked with the united nations on a major project(i don’t have a favourable opinion of the UN but that would be a discussion for another day).
      Having learned, studied & taught, when you examine the human body or any other body(you don’t have to be a scientist to do so, we live in a digital age and you can access vital info easily) the organs, the cells, DNA etc and their functions, it is amazing when you carefully study them even though according to God’s word we are living in an imperfect world, you can still see the blueprints of The Creator.

      I have experienced and am still experiencing the amazing grace of God.
      How can i deny Him?
      How can i deny His Goodness and Mercies?
      How can i be open to the possibility that everything He has done for me is wrong?
      If i even entertain that thought that would be insanity, not denying The Truth does not make me close-minded but open, open to The Truth, open to sanity, open to rationality, thankful, honest, grateful to God etc.

      This would never happen but it would be far easier for me to be open to the idea that am a woman(and am not), that am white, that my name is ratcliff than for me to deny who Jesus is and what He has done.

      My believe in God is not a hope or a wish, i believe in God because i know with all of my heart that He exists, His Merciful, Kind, HOLY, Just and so much more than words can express, i would rather deny my own existence than deny His and both are not possible.

      God will not withhold salvation from the one who calls upon Him truly seeking for forgiveness, mercy & grace but the only requirement is trusting in Jesus Christ as Lord & Saviour.

      I took the time to write multiple comments answering many questions in page 28, i also provided many links/resources, videos that i believe will be of help.
      If you have the time & data the are worth reading, watching and you will find more answers than questions in them.

    • For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek( this simply means the gospel of christ is for all).

      For in it is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written. The just shall live by faith.

      For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men/women, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

      Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it to them.

      For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

      Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful ; but became futile in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

      Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

      And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

      Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

      Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator , who is blessed for ever. Amen.

      For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

      And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

      And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient ;

      Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

      Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

      Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

      Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

      Romans 1:16-32

    • I close with this, Jesus is The way, The Truth and The Life. No one can receive eternal life except through him.
      You lose nothing but gain everything when you trust in Jesus, God gives us His beauty for our ashes, His righteousness for our unrighteousness when we trust in Christ Jesus.

      John 14:6, Isaiah 61:3, Romans 5:8, Romans 3:22, Romans 4:3-8 etc

      • Stanley, you say this:

        “God’s judgements are Holy and Righteous and it doesn’t matter what you think or i think, what you say or i say it won’t change a thing.”

        I would agree with the statement if you insert an important word:

        *Whether* there is a God and *whether* God’s judgements are Holy and Righteous, it doesn’t matter what you think or i think, what you say or i say it won’t change a thing.

        That is true. God’ existence (or non-existence) is one thing; our believing that God exists (or not) is another. That’s part of what it means to say that anyone (like you) who believes that God exists could be wrong, and that anyone (like me) who doesn’t believe that God exists could be wrong.

        One of us is right about God’s existence and one is wrong (given some other assumptions on which I think we agree). That’s the minimum that we both have to agree upon in order to have a fruitful discussion and debate about God’s existence. However, you seem to be unable to admit that you might be wrong, so I’m afraid I cannot continue the discussion.

        However, I genuinely hope that your beliefs about God continue to serve you well in life.

        • @Joesmith,

          There are so many things wrong with your comment but i have corrected you so many times and i know it’s enough.

          I did not start this conversation with you to argue or to debate and i made that clear in my initial comments.
          God/Truth is undisputable/undebatable because Truth does not change and can’t be refuted, debating or arguing about what is true/right is absurd and i have made that clear before.

          Truth does not change because of unbelieve, Truth can’t be refuted with irrefutable facts, it can be denied, it can be rejected but when it’s rejected/denied it’s not done with factual reasons.

          I don’t owe anything and i started this conversation with you out of Godly love and what you do with it is your Prerogative, your life, your decision not mine.

          There is time to plant and time to harvest and at the end we all reap what we have sowed, but remember this, the choices we make in this life whether we trust in Jesus or reject Him as lord & Saviour have eternal results.
          The word of God puts it this way “For the wages of sin is death(this is not a physical death or the nonexistence of the unbeliever) but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ(Romans 6:23).
          What that means is that you can be forgiven of all your sins & you can have eternal life when you put your trust in Christ, the opposite of this is also true because this is a gift it’s not by force we all have a choice.

          When we stand before THE HOLY and MERCIFUL GOD there is no excuse(Romans 1:19) and there is no factual evidence that can refute the Truth today.

          In John 14:6 Jesus said ” I am The Way, The Truth and The life. No one comes to the father except through me”.
          No one can receive eternal life or have their sins forgiven except through Jesus Christ.

          Jesus is the Truth!

          • Well, Stanley, if there are so many things wrong with my statement, you should be able to say which ones. I would urge you to use fewer words, more precisely.

            You’re right that you don’t owe me anything, and I don’t doubt that you write what you do out of a kind of love. However, if you wish to persuade me that you speak the truth you will get nowhere quoting scripture at me. I actually know a fair bit of it, but don’t think it has the significance that you think it has. That’s in large part what we disagree about.

            I think the Bible is a book written by human beings like any other. Like many books it has some very valuable and uplifting messages. It also has some passages that are anything but that.

            No one and no book has a monopoly on the truth. When you claim to know the truth about God without giving reasons -and quoting scripture does not count as giving reasons- you simply beg the question against someone (like me) who disagrees with you.

            • “Do not give what is HOLY to dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces(Matthew 7:6).

              This is a figurative statement but a true statement made by Jesus Christ, Jesus is not saying that dogs or pigs are evil or bad.
              Jesus is using dogs and pigs as representative of those who would ridicule, reject, and blaspheme the gospel once it is presented to them.

              David said in Psalms 23:1-6
              “The Lord is my Shepherd; i shall not want.
              He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.
              He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
              Even though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death, i will fear no evil; for you are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
              You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows.
              Surely God’s Goodness and Mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and i will dwell in the house of The Lord forever.
              Glory to God!

              David or others are not saying that they are a sheep, it is a figurative statement that contains precious jewels that is inspired by the Holy Spirit.

            • It’s not wise to expose the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who have no other purpose than to trample it and return to their own ungodly ways/beliefs.
              Repeatedly sharing the gospel with someone who continues to scoff at the word of God with foolish comments, ridicules Jesus Christ is like casting pearls before swine.

              Throw a pearl to a swine and he will resent it, as if you threw a stone at him, Truth will be called a lie, God’s word & Godly wisdom will be treated just like swines treat precious things.

              Jesus is not saying that we(christians) shouldn’t share the wonderful works of God or the gospel of everlasting life.
              Jesus was in the midst of sinners, He loved them, ate with them, laughed with them but more importantly He loved them enough to share the Truth with them, died for their sins & the sin of the world.

              All i can do is share the Truth with you and i have done that countlessly, i am not responsible for the choices you make when you hear it.
              Pigs don’t appreciate pearls and some people don’t appreciate what Jesus Christ has done for them.

              What do you lose? Nothing.
              What do you gain? Everything.
              God’s Beauty for your ashes.
              God’s Righteousness for your unrighteousness.
              God’s Grace & Mercy for your sins.

              There’s no sense in preaching/sharing/explaining the value of pearls to swine.
              “As a dog returns to it’s own vomit, so a FOOL repeats his folly”(Proverbs 26:11).
              Again & again, round & round, over & over gain constantly repeating false/foolish statements.

              God’s word & Godly counsel are Holy and a pearl that must not be cast before swine, they are ordinance of God, they are precious, a precious jewel as an earring of Gold and an ornament of fine gold, so is the wise reprover(Proverbs 25:12) and a wise reproof is like an excellent oil(Psalm 141:5) it is a tree of life(Proverbs 3:18) it’s living waters that spring up into everlasting life(John 4:13-14), and once it is sincerely received/thirsted all other thirsts are quenched, no more garbage, no more false/stupid/foolish/wicked ideologies and practice, just Godly Truths.

              This might be my last comment to you concerning this subject for obvious reasons & reasons mentioned here, it breaks my heart because in a way you remind me of who i used to be and i have shared a lot with you, answered many of your questions & others as well out of Godly love.

              I still have so much more to share but all i can do now is pray for you & others and hopefully sooner you will not only know but receive, experience & share the mercy, grace & wonderful works of God with others just like you or different from you because God is no respecter of persons, no matter who they are, what they have done(Glory to God), male or female, black or white, rich or poor, old or young, no matter how deep in sin they are, Jesus can reach them where they are, all it takes is humble repentance & sincerely trusting in Jesus Christ as your Lord & saviour.

              Glory be to God.

            • A few comments, Stanley.

              First, I do not trample the gospel. Rather, I analyse it, question it. That is something very different.

              Second, and related, I am not ridiculing Christ. Again, I am asking questions about him; again, something very different.

              Finally, I can assure you that I have thought about these questions a lot. You presume that my comments are false and foolish, but you give no reasons for thinking so, only scripture the value (and truth) of which is precisely what is in question.

            • Very funny!

              Having questions is different than trampling and i have answered most of your questions that i think are sincere, some of your statements/comments are ridicules and are not worth the time because the are irrational and sometimes ungodly.

              Please don’t misunderstand me, i don’t hate you, i hate deception whether it’s done ignorantly or wilfully.
              When truth is attacked and a lie is believed it doesn’t just destroy the life/soul of the deceiver it wrecks they lives of others who believe in a lie,

              jesus answered many questions and performed many supernatural works for a reason but his detractors always had one more question, the seeked after one more sign, when one question is answered they ignore the answer and ask another, when one Godly miracle is performed they ignore it or mock it and seek after another, they were not after truth and they were never satisfied when a question was answered.

              This is what Jesus said to them “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah”(Matthew 12:39, verse 40-42 explains further).

              Asking questions is not bad, asking multiple questions is good but doing it deceptively or in an ungodly manner is wrong.
              How can you answer a question on quantum physics, when they one asking the question doesn’t believe that 1 plus 1 equals 2.

              Jesus said “for everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened”(Matthew 7:8).

              This is page 30, the current page is 31 please post your comments there.

      • Oh thank-you Joe! but…the picture is the great Champion (glamour shot), Petra Kvitova…she is lovely and she knocked out everyone’s pick, Garbine Muguruza. But it was quite glorious, very much in the same way Delpo’s win was. Hope you had a pleasant Labor Day Weekend. Cheers 🙂

        • Wow, I didn’t really think the picture was of you, but I never recognized Kvitova. I’ve always thought she was very pretty, but I’ve never seen her glammed up like that.

in the same Rolex Cellini Replica style as the team replica watches. I find the engraving far more satisfying, but would have liked to see a bit more depth to it. There is a little more branding on the PRC200. Firstly, Burberry handbags the 6 oclock sub-dial sports a basketball image in grey. Additionally, the pushers are edged with red (top) and blue (bottom), Breitling Replica Watches UK which is, to me, the coolest thing.
