The problem of god and the buried light (Jae Sous) is enigmatic to those determined about their personal wills!

Hell is breaking out in the White House ... over what a powerful precident says is nothing but quid pro quo!

Thus teeth are pressed against something needing a bite ... mi R's?

[U]PilgrimsProgress[/U] your quote -----maturity - is just try to focus on loving God and neighbour

That may be your view -----Spiritual Maturity to me means -----you don't just try to focus on God and neighbour --you do focus on God and neighbour ------God is the one who causes our Spiritual Maturity not us -----so trying to focus on God and neighbour will not get you to Spiritual Maturity --

You mean a masochist, don't you? Someone who desires punishment or pain? Though I guess Hell needs plenty of sadists, too. o_O
Yes - sorry about that. (I either had a seniors moment, or conversing with fundies is doing my brain some damage) :sneaky:

There was nothing to recommend us. We weren't good. God's love in Christ stands out by contrast. God proves God's love toward us in that which Christ did for us. The effects of Christ's death continue. They're there today for all. That's God's love, a love which exceeds all we can imagine.

For people of positive thinking ... is such negative comments about our guilt in changing the world ... a darker process ... ironic production? Thus we become waste of the gods of time ... once known in ancient Egypt as a tel ... like Armana!

All that really counted in being aware of the cosmos was the wee people! Those inflated believe us small things and deniable! Exorcised by brute force of BS ...

Except Ferdinand' gentle force of escapism ... thus we go on ... with considerable fabrication ...
