Since you are apparently ignorant of FreeRepublic's terminology (bjs1779, since 1998-04-23), I will gladly give you some refreshment of that information, troll. In FReep-lore, a troll is someone begging for attention, or trying to disrupt. You fit that quite nicely, as do many of the supporters of this entire thread.
It is standard to "ping" (list them in the address line) a person, as a courtesy, when you talk about them. Whenever a post is made to a person, red characters alert you on the FR bannerhead, to let you know you have new posts (or new mail). I realize you should already know all of this, but you must need the attention. You are succeeding in trollery.
It is also common to discuss matters with intelligent responses, regardless of form or unflattering remarks. As yet, I have not seen anything resembling intelligence in anything you have posted to me, just rude, bigoted remarks. I beleive that is what you first accused me of doing.
I repeat, please do not ping me to this thread, nor use a post to me, as a ping for your list. Crawl back under your bridge.
For all I know, you might be right, nowadays.
Just in case I get kicked out of here, I note this post of yours, your first post I believe.
Why is this thread, which has almost no followers, still being served to us in "Breaking news"?
Of course it was never in breaking news. But then again, you know all the rules around here.
As I also know, you are a troll.
You can read a few posts later where I acknowledged my error, and correctly changed it to reflect that. But that wouldn't within fit your small mind, or your need for attention!
Now, now, remember what I told you when you first appeared on our thread bent on derailing it all in the name of Our Lord. I told you what projection was. Haters call people they hate haters. You keep doing it and calling us Christians sinners.
Christians as you take pride in claiming, are pro life, yet you fume at us for defending the legacy of Terri and people like her.
I do not know what your problem is, but you are just about the most projecting person I have seen on these threads. You only attracted one real support and that turned out to be a bona fide troll. You came here specifically to disrupt and you then accuse us of disruption. That is what I mean. You may be hijacking this from a liberal site because projection is a trait of liberals.
I, myself, have never called you a troll, but you are defining yourself that way on this thread real fast. Whatever you post elsewhere does not concern me, but you are way over the top on this one.
Haters call those they hate haters. You still don't get it, do you? 'Bout every post you made in accusation is a fault you show of yourself.
Tell me this. We have been on this thread quite awhile. You waded right on just as you suggest to disrupt us from the very start, to shut us down all in the name of Our Lord.
And you call us trolls????
Hello!! Anyone home??
The hearing was today. Here is what his Mom says.
We have good news to report from today's guardianship hearing. No changes were made to Scott's guardianship, allowing him to remain with his mom. Please continue to pray for them as they work toward his full recovery.
"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." 1 John 1:8
Though one may lead a "good life" on the outside, God looks on the heart. It is the nature of man to look on the outward, but outward appearances can be deceiving.
"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity." Matt. 23:27-28 We cannot deal with our sin by "cleaning ourselves up" the outside, when our problem is a heart condition. "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin." John 8:34 We are all slaves to our sinful nature, and we can only be cleansed from within.
Since sin is the root cause of all our troubles, we must deal with our sin first if we want less troubles in our lives. How do we get rid of sin? God tells us in His Word that by nature we are "...dead in trespasses and sin;" (Ephesians 2:1) and that we are "...alienated from the life of God..." (Ephesians 4:18). Just as a body without physical life is declared physically dead, so anyone who is separated from God is described in the Bible as spiritually dead. As long as we remain spiritually dead, we cannot know God.
We all need a new life. We need to be cleansed from sin and it's penalty (which is death) and restored to fellowship with God who made us all. That is what Jesus Christ (God's Son) meant when He said we "must be born again" (John 3:7). "...Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3). Without the experience of the "new birth" we have no hope of enjoying the glories of heaven nor escaping the terrors of hell. Have you been born again?
The "new birth" is not a religion, not living up to a creed, not a set of rituals, nor joining a church or denomination. It's a transformation. Our old nature is changed and we receive a new one. Old things pass away and all things become new in Christ. We receive a new heart, new desires, new ideas, and a new direction because of this new nature. A birth is the coming into being of a new life which has the nature of its parents. When you were born the first time, you were made a partaker of the nature of natural man. When you are born again, you become a partaker of the divine nature (II Peter 1:4). God can become your heavenly Father.
The greatest attribute of God is that He is a God of love. He loves you and me. He loves all sinners and wants to save every one of us from hell and the terrible results of our sin. His Word tells us, "But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). "For He hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him" (II Corinthians 5:21). God hates sin because of what it produces-- war, sickness, poverty, etc., but God loves the sinner.
God sent Jesus Christ, His only Son, so that we might have new, everlasting life. The Bible tells us, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). By His death and resurrection, Jesus paid for our salvation. He broke the power of sin and death, making it possible for us to have everlasting life. The life of God raised Jesus from the dead and He was the first born Son into the kingdom of God.
"Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence" (Colossians 1:12-18).
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was nailed to a cross by ungodly men for no sin of His own. He was an innocent man-- the only man who was ever perfect and sinless. He never sinned, yet He took your sins and mine by taking an unjust death. Because He did this willingly, He was raised from the dead by His Father and given life and authority over the powers of darkness. God now imparts that same life and authority to all those who come receiving His provision for their sin. "...the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin" (I John 1:7)
We must accept God's Word that says we all are sinners and know that it is sin that separates us from God and repent or "turn away" from that sin. Until we each acknowledge, and ask forgiveness for our own guilt, we will never be free from it. It will eventually lead us right into hell.
"The Lord is...not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (II Peter 3:9)
God wants to give us His power over sin. We cannot conquer sin without that power. God wants to give us life for death, beauty for ashes, health for sickness, joy for grief, peace for strife, love for hate. God's Word says, "...I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10). Do you want abundant life? This abundant life comes only as we are born again and as we follow on and receive all that God promises us.
It isn't always easy following God, but nothing worthwhile ever was. You may be ridiculed and persecuted. You will face many temptations to fall back into your old nature. But you can be assured that God is with you, and He will give you power to overcome every one of them.
"But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, and be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith." Phil 3:7-9
You can pray right now and ask God to come into your heart and receive the new birth. Simply talk to Him as you would talk to another person. You might pray a prayer similar to this:
God, I come to you in the name of Jesus, I do not know you personally, but I want to know you. I believe that Your Word, the Bible is true. I repent for hardening my heart toward you, and delighting myself in things you hate. I don't want to go to hell; I really want to be free of my sin. Dear God, I ask Jesus to come into my heart and cleanse me of the guilt of my sins and give me the power to overcome those sins. I want to be Your child and learn of Your ways. Keep me from evil and save my soul. I am asking to receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord so that I can experience God's love and plan for my life. Amen
If you said that prayer and meant it from your heart, you are now a child of God. You will need to do four things faithfully every day so you will grow in God.
Ask God to cleanse you of all sin and impure thoughts and motives. Satan, our enemy, will try to break our fellowship with God by getting us back into sin or trying to get us angry at God. Guard against this by resisting the devil daily.
"Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life" (Proverbs 4:23).
"Submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you" (James 4:7).
Was this your post?
Excuseme, News/current events... I thought TS died some time ago! I didn't realize the difference. Excuuuussssse me!
Is this the spam you promised to flood our thread so as to gum us up? You told us at the beginning you were going to do just that. Are you panicking that our thread keeps going?
Sounds like I can ratched down my concerns for Scott for awhile!
Please print the post where I even mentioned spam. It wasa you and your trolling tactics.
You should be happy I bumped it along. Just use your own buddies for your bumps, next time, and don't talk behind my back. I don't really expect the last part, though! I suspect that must be part of your cathechism.
BJS, do you think he read the passages on Proverbs? I wonder if he did because I must have posted it a couple of times with easy to follow links. If he had, he would have realized what was happening, no? I really hoped he would get it and save the embarrassment.
I tried to be nice at the beginning even after he identified himself, but what we say is of no meaning to him, only what he says has meaning to him.
He is getting panicked because he has failed to derail us and he is starting to get mad. So he pings Admin hoping to get them on his side. He did that at the beginning, too.
Must be tough to be so angry.
Mr. Schindler is way too kind. Charlie Christ didn't "let Terri die"--he let Michael Schiavo kill her.
Given all of the previous, I don't think I want to be around here anymore 8mm.
I hear you, know what you mean.
You do realize, my last post was 1779.
