@Frank Apisa,
It's not as lame as marking your own homework on a permanent basis. That's playpen lame.

No, actually he was quite healthy, until the falcon.

@XXSpadeMasterXX,
Thank you for sharing Spades. I had to vote that one up because it reminded me of the reality which we live in.

Not trying to be mean or anything close but rather sharing my observation.


When I seen that video I seen that there was no one in the pews as if it was not a real ceremony but rather one that was put forth to send a message.. the message I got was one of how the church admires the color of gold and how much money is devoted toward to itself than the people which it serves. What was the message that you walked away with?

Would you be kind enough to explain why you would compare Frank to a ferret?

I do not agree with how Frank can think at times, "similar to theists at times and I will admit that I poke fun at him but I still find extreme value in what he shares. Very Happy

You mean Frank, the fictional ferret filched by the falcon.

Its a long story. Frank can fill you in, Laughing

I, too, use Frank as a sharpening stone.

That it is a physical symbolic ritual of ones devout faith in having a spiritual baptism...and receiving the Spirit of God...and gaining an Apostolic nature...and becoming faithful and prudent to God...I think Jesus gave us that physical symbolic ritual so that ones can physically see the spiritual baptism that happens that he talks about...Where things are not just Earthly but Heavenly...

It is like being able to physically see people receiving the spirit of God themselves...

Quote:

That is probably because your faith in God is very devout...I am not sure that anyone would have to...Once ones faith is devout...the intention, is the spiritual baptism that God refers to...and they would probably not even have to eat the bread of life if they already believe in God and believe they are one of his followers...

It is a physical ritual for ones who need to see to believe...

Just like the Bible is made for the one lost sheep of 100 that are lost...

The Parable of the Lost Sheep

15 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. 2 But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.”

3 Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

That I do not agree with you...since I believe and have faith, but I am not thinking about how much gold that tabernacle is worth...but rather a spiritual prayer for my ill brother who also believes...I deny that that is the message...but it may be what you subjective believe being a skeptic...

This gibberish about "physical symbolical....that's a tortuous way of saying "masterbation of the brain so that you can come --religiously.
And a spirit baptism is gargling it, to clear your throat for the next sermon

@XXSpadeMasterXX,
If we are talking about the unleavened bread Jesus used when he instituted the New Covenant, it is merely symbolic as Jesus declared in Matthew 26: 26-28; " . . . this means my body. . . etc" Those who are part of the New Covenant celebrate this meal as a remembrance of the sacrifice Jesus made. Are you saying there is or should be some spiritual enlightenment or revelation that accompanies it?

@neologist,
I am saying that Jesus gave a physical and spiritual quality...a physical appearance, on purpose, so that his followers can physically understand what the physical and spiritual symbolic significant reference is/was...and how the two are one with "The Father"

I am saying the very second that one turns to God...Or is willing to put their faith in God and embrace him...they are always constantly receiving "the bread of life" "and blood of Christ" or the physical and spiritual aspects of God himself...there could be revelations from ones who need to see the symbolism...and their could be ones who would not even need to have to see it, and just making God the focus of everything that they do...Or the intention itself...would be sufficient revelations because they know they are already always becoming one with God...and have no physical or spiritual thirst like another who may need or have to witness the transubstantiation physically...

I think it all depends upon the different levels of spirituality that each person looking inward can recognize...When they are seeking God...and being honest with themselves and God...Whether In a Church, or in secrecy in their own room with the door shut behind them...

As a significant remembrance...I do think it is good...

My wife had a few ferrets and we had a room devoted to them but in all honesty I was glad to see the last one die off so that I did not have to smell that room. Wink

I can only guess that you have more respect for Frank than I had for them ferrets?

Do not get me wrong because I found empathy for them and allowed them to live a normal life considering what my wife provided for them.

I wish my wife had as much empathy for me as she had for them stinking ferrets. Laughing

Do you think that you and Terry Jones may have a different interpretation of the word?
