“I attended several times at a mega church for curiosity sake, and the last sermon I heard from the senior pastor was he was asking money for investments and in return that there is 100% guaranteed return from gawd.”

“My non believer mother recently became saved and I had to sit through this awful ceremony. The pastor preached about fornication and stated that anyone watching the golden girls is watching sin... and it isn't funny because it's old people. Sinning is sinning. Yeah, I waited in the car.”
“I never married because there was no need. I have three pets at home which answer the same purpose as a husband. I have a dog which growls every morning, a parrot which swears all afternoon, and a cat that comes home late at night.

“I wish we live in a perfect world where there are no horrible mistakes or crimes committed. But in reality there are murderous crimes that we have to deal with it in a compassionate and empathetic approach. Those who wanted her to die are as guilty as accessory to murder. Through my observation and reasoning her mental state then was confusion and disorientation that she might have snapped and caused her to murder because of her alleged abused by her deceased boyfriend. Even though she is guilty of the crime she should not be put to death: https://www.law.columbia.edu/law_school/communications/reports/summer06/capitalpunish”

“1st degree murder in AZ carries a sentence of Death, Life W/out parole, Life W/ parole after 25 yrs. It is not up to us how she is sentenced. I do believe she is guilty of premeditated murder, which is first degree. Now I don't live in AZ, but I suggest if you do, and don't believe in the death penalty, you should be writing your congressman.”

“Khalil Gibran poem on children mean: Parents gave birth to the children does not mean that they can play God in their children's lives. Children are human beings in their own right, they have identities beyond being so-and-so's son or daughter. They must always be encourages to explore and arrive at their own identities, to chart their own paths through life and parents, however well-meaning they may be, can only act guiding lights as best. They can not and should not take on the role of jailors or dictators in their children's lives. This way both the children and the parents can fulfill their natural roles. by Miyuki Maya”

“That is an often-asked question, but I would respectfully challenge your presupposition that God has promised to keep believers from harm. The teachings of Jesus found in the Bible are very distorted in pop culture.
God does not offer people a genie-in-a-bottle relationship. There is no leveraging God for what we can get out of Him (though what we get out of the relationship is wonderful!). God is ruler of creation, though He has allowed us to take control of this world and screw it up pretty badly, for the time being.
Where was God when Dave needed Him? God was there with comforting arms around Dave, while someone else who God loves was flipping off God.
God gives people free will to move toward God, or to move away from Him until they destroy themselves by detaching themselves from God, the Sustainer of life. It's like being in a burning building and screaming at the fireman, "Leave me alone! Stop treating me like I need to be rescued!" Free will misdirected hurts people, like my friend Dave, and you and me. Dave is now in heaven, though we will miss him terribly. I pray for Dave's family, and the person who hurt Dave, that he would change his ways, his allegiance toward God, and learn the path of love.”

“Your premise isn't correct, God never promised that he would keep us from evil, in fact, he told us that we would face a lifetime confronting it, which is what Dave spent his life doing.
What God DID promise, was that he would give us strength, and peace as we come face to face with it, which is how Dave lived, moved and had his being.
Evil is a choice that man makes - not God. Salvation is what God offers - but it is also a choice that man must make. We will chose one, or we will chose the other - and our actions will show the choice we made.
He offers you that same choice and opportunity Ecoli, He has promised that if you chose him, that he will forgive you and walk through all the trials that you face whatever they are. But you have to make the choice. Dave was at peace in the living of his life, are you? Do you know the freedom that Dave knew? Dave wasn't afraid to die, because he knew the God he trusted was faithful - even in his death.
Evaluate your life Ecoli, ask him to show you the peace that Dave had.

“As a Christian, I can say, good question. I hope to know the answer someday. Christians die all the time, murdered, cancer, etc. When a Christian is "healed" they often attribute it to God, sorry Gawd, as you say. But where does that leave the Christian who wasn't healed and died from cancer, or this preacher? Don't know the answer. Other than (a) there is evil in this world, and God never promised to protect his followers from ever experiencing evil, or pain, or despair for that matter, and (b) the fact that this seemingly good guy died, or that Christians suffer in this world does not dissuade me from my belief in the Almighty, sorry again, Gawd. Best I can describe it is with an old saying, a man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument. And, I have an experience. But again, you ask a good question that many struggle with.”
“A fashion faux pas: this might be an accidental exposure of partially intimate part or just plainly a deliberately staged for publicity reasons? From what I observed in the picture she stepped on her long loose-fitting patterned pants making it difficult for her to walk and eventually nearly exposing her private part. This is far from indecent exposure or flashing. Lesson learned: wear appropriate attire with double wardrobe or better yet wear a leather jacket as her boyfriend was wearing. Forget about the lengthy pants - she looks much older wearing it and my suggestion to her is wear women’s chinos instead.”
“Light blue dress with white belt is a good color coordinated look. Whereas, the black belt will definitely match with red dress. Moreover, highlights will enhance the appearance of the stunningly pretty young actress.”

“Heather Locklear love life is ticking away like an odometer and she has to succumb to a plastic surgeon to give her freebies: maybe she was given an advice from her doctor boyfriend to apply sperm to her face to make her look younger with the result of an unblemished face. My advice to her is to become a vegan, which is cheaper, so she doesn’t have to go to a knife to have cosmetic surgeries. Furthermore, I hope her doctor boyfriend is a vegan because vegan sperm is deliciously tasty and have more antioxidant properties for her to apply as a facial cream: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/all-about-sex/200911/how-improve-the-taste-semen”

“The vast majority of the products mentioned in the above article do not use nitrites or nitrates. I practice charcuterie at home and can attest to this. Sausage? That's another story and set of techniques. By the way, spinach and cauliflower are very high in nitrates(which metabolize into nitrites). If one goes overboard and eats 12 brats a week, that's one thing. In moderation, cured meats are great. As many are fatty, use more for seasoning than as an entree. Just my two cents worth.”
