Sacrifice of intelligence ... and thus primed to take offense at everything and everybody ... when if cognizant it gives something to learn from ... even if it is a pain! It is best if the dedicated don't see it coming ... c'st fini! Outside the pool it may appear differently! Ever hear the story about a frog in a Kahn of water ... tis sloe creep that's disbelievable!

In the end all intelligence is extracted ... and your thoughts fly off into the unknown ... a god that some fear eternally ... there is another side tuit! The enigma is to look hard and right through what is presented as unproven truism! Its a mystery ...
Actually, Luce, I don’t think intelligence should be a sacrifice here, it looks more like it is badly needed.

But in the great book of god-love ... we're told to avoid that tree ... even when torched in bonfire season ... it casts generated illumination.

Could fire on the mind be absolute or imaginary? It flickers in many set circumstances as the tender moves on ... and as such uncertain articles emerge ... stuff to be investigated in an adventure ...

I broke loose from a church at an early age that preached knowledge and information as intelligence was evil. Yet strangely the pastor sent his children off to school and university with some weird fundamentals to their learning! Furthermore some ministers have declared I didn't experience such things ... so the philosophy goes ...

Funny thing every month or so that minister preached that philosophy was the most evil of sins. Indicated to me that what appeared wasn't true and thus the word incarnate ... so it lies there flat out ... for all we know ... it is hidden in the great stacks ... smoke'n! --- the Bishop of Myra!

If Jesus is the light in the story ... was heh sacrificed and entome 'd? Some say in tomb due to the uncertainty of human knowledge about altruism ... this the great uncertain article "A" as how we started with A Dam ... and considerable blockage of thought! More a da Wali!

Thus light snow falls ... extreme snow jobs when folk say all intelligence can be retained in one book of law ... there's A Moor tuit! -- Jain's aid!

Western desire ... to put down Jainism until it reappeared as Tar San ... its tacky. But admit the dark stuff sucks the naive in to believe they've heard the end of IT! Thus ad mitte ration ... like the western gauntlet ... some knowledge of strange tongues is beneficial although seen by the contained as monstrous Job ... they con't comprehend the benefits of knowing strangers ... and even talking to eM! Gladwell wrote a tome onite!

Some say Ire does not exist ... yet men will say they're mad!

Tis freedom of expression ... religious disbelief in no restrictions on the face 've it!

Myself ... when disturbed I chop wood ... as in heart wood with innards to split ... Odin!

Chopping wood sounds like a very productive outlet.It could even benefit you neighbours. ( if you don’t have enough yourself). Better than putting those little :mad::mad::mad: on comments.
Thankfully, we have plenty of wisdom on WCs threads for that case.
And when anger wants to come into them, then they should watch out, for human anger doesn't work goodness.
( I prefer the wood chopping solution.)

It may later bring levite ... and warmth to replace the heat as vented ... that cussed thing I am Zues ... a god like vent? Some people cannot handle negative emotions thus preach incessantly on the positive ...

However there remains the question of the carpenter, woodsman, grandmothers, consumption and the wee one in red hooded form ... ghoule in the woods as Gael? This may be the spoon that stirs that labelled caled Ron or draw to called onia ... edited for length to Caledonia!

Switch craft if your parietal wall restricts the gifts ... there is a season ... and even the parents should give up .. the child within the myth has to learn and rise above IT ... mentally it is a projection ... innate at that!

Ever been told not to project? Thus axis fly and float ... could be the angular spin giving momentum ... gyro effect as demonstrated by bicycles ...

Occi dents ...

Ground that doesn't respond well to good treatment must be condemned as worthless, and the thorns which it bears must be burned. The rain is God’s grace, God's Word, the Spirit's working in me. This should enable me to bring forth fruit to God. So if I harden myself and bring forth blasphemy, I seal my own doom. I sin against the Spirit, for which there's no forgiveness.

Personally, I believe with Jae that humanity has been created in the image of God and frankly don't understand the nitpicking that's going on about that, except that people like to nitpick when Jae's involved. I do not believe humanity being created in God's image means that we look like God (or that God looks like us.) It means that we share certain attributes with God. We are intensely creative (co-creators with God, in a way, as we sometimes say in the United Church.) We have the capacity to understand right from wrong. We also, having that capacity, sometimes choose that which is wrong - meaning that our creativeness is often used for purposes that are ungodly and, frankly, evil (including some of what we have "created" within the realm of religion, including some of what we see in Christianity.) That means that the image of God within us and revealed through us is tarnished.

While I am not particularly enthralled with the traditional doctrine of substitutionary atonement, I have no problem with the idea that Jesus represented a "sacrifice." However, I see him not so much as a blood sacrifice appeasing the wrath of God, but as a divine self-sacrifice (I do believe in the dual divine/human nature of Jesus) so that through a horrible death on a cross God is lowered to as low as God can possibly be lowered, thus putting God in complete solidarity with the human condition. In that sense, while not traditional substitutionary atonement theory, I do believe that Jesus represented a redemptive sacrifice - by sharing in even the lowest depths of the human condition, God redeems the human condition.

If there is a spark of Jesus light in all humanty ... then with reason and logic the entire body could be sacrificed ... let us call it martyrdom of fini's degree!

So humans have a human Godde. Doesn't that strike you as both a little convenient and a little self-serving? Gotta assume that the Godde of the octopi looks like them, as well, yes?

Almost 50 years ago, fried chicken tycoon David Bamberger used his fortune to purchase 5,500 acres of overgrazed land in the Texas Hill Country. Planting grasses to soak in rains and fill hillside aquifers, Bamberger devoted the rest of his life to restoring the degraded landscape. Today, the land has been restored to its original habitat and boasts enormous biodiversity. Bamberger's model of land stewardship is now being replicated across the region and he is considered to be a visionary in land management and water conservation.

Redemption for the frying of chickens in the first place?

What kind of gods do those that follow the horses have? Thus ass NDs the essence ... HS? Given that H ---> N in transliteration ... thus flaming Eros is part of the dream ... and a thorny wasteland where multitudes evolve if you don;t think ahead 'v that time ... fore ND sic science as incidents occur in deep spatial states ... those times when wisdom departed due to denial or exorcising?

Are there alternate ways of heating chic stuff other than physically ... mental-emotional dances? Really cranks the Eve Angle Lists ... differently from the bouquet lists ... stories from celebrity psychologists? Some go bad like Bill ...
