@Squeakybro,
It could be pride.
What do you think?
A special relationship with your own personal fantasy spirit.
Possible.

@Squeakybro,
Could you please say it correctly... at least once. You keep repeating the same mistake.

You should tell me "You're an idiot". It is a contraction of "You" and "Are". "Your" is the possessive second person pronoun.

I will feel much more loved by you if you insult me with proper English grammar (although you don't seem very patient or kind, at least with me).

@maxdancona,
Attentention to the nuances of language is not one of Squeaky's strong points. It's his achilles, actually.

lol What I think is you cant tell the difference between pride and boldness. To the carnal mind they look alike. But the spiritual mind sees a big difference.

@maxdancona,
If you can discern it correctly how can it be a mistake. Are you going to correct Jesus if He gets letters out of "YOUR" order on judgment day?

John 7:15
15 And the Jews marveled, saying, "How does this Man know letters, having never studied?"
(NKJ)

maybe if you wasn't always straining out the gnats you might learn something.

Matt 23:24
24 "Blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!

@maxdancona,
lol And you intellectuals will have to answer for your ignorance.

1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God.
2 For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
3 I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling.
4 And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,
5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
6 However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory,
8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
9 But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him."
10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.
11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
13 These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Libenu


Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vetaher_Libenu
Updated: 2015-10-19T04:49Z



Vetaher Libenu (Purify Our Hearts), is a siddur published by the lay people of Congregation Beth El of the Sudbury River Valley, in Sudbury, Massachusetts, to serve the needs of that Reform Congregation. It is the first siddur to use non-sexist, inclusive language and to refer to God using feminine and masculine pronouns.[1] [2]

History

The first edition of Vetaher Libenu was published in 1975 by the lay people serving as the Ritual Committee of Congregation Beth El of the Sudbury River Valley, Sudbury, Massachusetts, led by C. Peter R. Gossels and Nancy Lee Gossels, its editors.[1] This siddur was intended to fill “a gap between the forms of prayer that they desired, and the Union Prayer Book”[1] used by Reform congregations at the time, by restoring much of the traditional liturgy and offering translations that tried to capture in English the meaning of the original Hebrew.[3] The committee also included many original poems, meditations and prayers composed by people on the committee.[3]

In 1979, the Ritual Committee decided to revise the entire siddur by "changing the masculine and feudal epithets for God [and] . . . to use language that would reestablish the dignity of women and have meaning for our children as well."[1] According to the introduction in Vetaher Libenu, the committee used the Book of Genesis 1:27 as a proof text to use masculine and feminine pronouns when referring to God. This verse can be translated from Hebrew as, “And God created human kind in God’s image; male and female God created them.”[3]

The committee substituted neutral terms, such as “God,” Creator” and “Holy One,” for masculine metaphors “Lord” and “King.” The committee also introduced, for the first time, the matriarchs, Sarah, Rebekah, Rachel and Leah, into the liturgy, a practice adopted by all Reform siddurim since Vetaher Libenu's publication, as well as by some Conservative siddurim. The “most controversial change,” according to Nancy Gossels in a Boston Globe interview, “was the decision to use feminine pronouns in the Psalms in order to broaden and enrich the awareness and understanding of God, who is neither male nor female.”[4]

As stated by the siddur's editors in the Introduction, the committee was inspired by Martin Buber’s I and Thou to compose liturgy that addressed God most often as "You," rather than "He" or "She," in order to encourage a more personal bond between the reader and his or her God.[3]

Published in 1980, the second edition of Vetaher Libenu, edited by Nancy Lee Gossels, Joan S. Kaye, and C. Peter R. Gossels, was the first non-sexist Jewish prayer book ever published.[1] In addition to the innovations described above, Nancy Lee Gossels and Joan S. Kaye revised the traditional Hebrew translation of “Barukh atah Adonai Eloheinu, melekh ha’olam,” or “Praised are You, Adonai our God, Ruler to the Universe,” to “Holy One of Blessing, Your Presence Fills Creation.”[1] This invocation is now used by many Reform congregations. The book was copyrighted in 1980.[5]

Matt 23:34-36
34 "Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city,
35 "that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar.
36 "Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.

@Squeakybro,
I'm not a social anthropologist specialising in primitive cultures, so what motivates you to do anything has always been a bit of a mystery.

@Squeakybro,
Like I said, I'm no social anthropologist, but I'm not surprised to find you don't like music. That's something else you have in common with the Taleban.

What's your position on kite flying?
