GOD BELIEVER

VERSUS

DOUG THE DOG

GB: I have never been to “Las Vegas”, seen on TV a documentary about “Las Vegas”, one thing that really caught my eye, it showed the inside of a betting parlor, they showed a sign above the betting sign, the sign read…
        The best bet one can make is believing that Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose again the third day.
        The sign also included—> It’s a win win no lose situation, if Christ isn’t who He says He is on “that day”, man has nothing to worry about.
        The BIG but…”BUT”…if Christ is who He says He is and you didn’t accept Him as your Lord and Savior on this side of Glory, “YOU” will be “eternally lost”, no appeals, no lawyers, no phone calls, no visits, no mail, no saying your sorry.

DD: Wow – you take advice from the guys who run Las Vegas. I’m a dog and I wouldn’t be so bone-headed as to do that. My master, whom I lovvvve, taught me better! You guys are still trying to use Pascal’s Wager as some sort of justification for believing in ghosts and fairies. Talk about an argument from ignorance. Heh – I be b’leevn in god cuz if I r wrong it don’t make no diffrunts! But if I r right, I get to be in hebben. Yee-haw! Do you really think any god worth his title would buy that dog poo? Not me! I’d fire your ass so fast into hell you wouldn’t know if you were coming or going! Of course, if your tiny mind cannot understand science, religion is a pile of poo you can play in, like the primates all of you so obviously descend from. I know, I know… you’ll pray for me. Fair enough. I’ll think for you! Have a nice day! Whooooooft :0)

GB: The Bible teaches us that we are all made in the image of God…. and his Spirit dwells in us (Women and men) as we know Christ as saviour. I am in no way second class! I have been set free and God’s Spirit empowers me to live for Him. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile slave or free, male or female – we are allone in Christ Jesus – brothers and sisters – to live for his glory in the power and freedom that Jesus gives. Hallelujah!!

DD: A book my master reads me called Where’s Waldo, teaches us that Waldo is very good at hiding… but that doesn’t make it any less of a made up story. If you are a woman who has read the bible cover to cover, then you would already know that you are considered to be chattle, made of the rib of man to be man’s servant. Obviously, you haven’t read it all, or you have selective memory, or have distorted the meaning to suit yourself. Either way, like all christians, you are deluding yourself about what your book says and the effect of it. I hope you will become more responsible about what you say and do – expecially around that baby you are holding in your arm, because your book also supports the idea of one human being owning another. Some god indeed! My master doesn’t own me… he is my friend! Be well!

GB: Inside each of you is a rich person, a poor person, and a middle class person. It is up to you to decide which person you become – rich dad poor dad, by Robert Kiyosaki

DD: There are no people inside me, GB – I’m sure I’d notice. As for this class BS, what in dog’s name are you talking about? Did it ever occur to you that if you want to become a Rich Dad like Bobby, you might want to write a book telling people how to get rich and then travel the world delivering courses on it, etc? Bobby’s a charlatan whose name should be Richard Cranium! The truth is – do what you love and what you’re good at and let the money take care of itself. And, surely, being a christian, didn’t jebus say that rich men aren’t gwyne upta hebben? Come on, my friend, THINK! Be well.

GB: I have not read the book, but I have read the bible. The notion that rich people don’t go to heaven is a perfect example of taking a scripture out of context. The reference is from Matthew 19 where the rich young man came to Jesus and asked what he had to do to inherit eternal life. Jesus first told him to keep the commandments. When the man said that he does and asks what else he should do, Jesus told him to sell all he had and give it to the poor then come follow him. The famous verse is next Mt 19:24 “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Jesus what making the point that the man trusted his money more than God. God never requires us to be poor. He requires us to be obedient. The bible says that we cannot serve both God and money. Also, where a man’s treasure is, there his heart will be also. God wants our hearts and whatever stands in the way whether it be money, women, drugs, etc. will hinder us from giving our hearts to him. Read the old testament and see how wealthy some of God’s servants were. Look at Abraham. In Genesis 12:16 the bible states, “He treated Abram well for her sake, and Abram acquired sheep and cattle, male and female donkeys, menservants and maidservants, and camels. It says her he was wealthy to the point of having multiple servants. Also, in Gen 13:2 it states ” Abram had become very wealthy in livestock and in silver and gold. Now, this man is definitly in heaven. The point is that God wants to bless his children monetarily so they can bless others and glorify Him. 2 Corinthians 9:10-11 “Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. (11) You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. That is the word og God rightly dividedwhat he had to do to inherit eternal life. Jesus first told him to keep the commandments. When the man said that he does and asks what else he should do, Jesus told him to sell all he had and give it to the poor then come follow him. The famous verse is next Mt 19:24 “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Jesus what making the point that the man trusted his money more than God.

(11) You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. That is the word of God rightly divided!

DD: GB, do you really think being able to regurgitate the bible gets you anywhere – unless its your specialist subject on MasterMind? How arrogant of you to think that your interpretation is the correct one. Whoooooofffff. Shame on you! I take the bible literally because I don’t have the bravery/stupidity/ confidence of saying, as you do – What God Meant to Say! My gosh – for such a young kid you’re acting like an egotistical, self-righteous, pompous, arrogant git! Now – go do your homework – and try to lay of the brainwashing: giving it and receiving it.

GB: Although, I enjoy the debate, I have to get back to work. I will say that you allude to being older than me, but the insults you hurl in a purely innocent debate have me questioning that. Your rebuttal should have the power to accomplish what the insults attempted. ;o)

DD: See, all communication is interpreted – sometimes rightly, sometimes not. The points I made were not intended to be insults (and I respect your right to choose to take them that way), they were mere observations about you based solely on what you said. And I’m curious to know, since you claim to know the mind of god, what do you think my ‘rebuttal’ was trying to accomplish?

GB: I owe you an apology. I may not have been as blatant, but there were insults in my replies. For that I am sorry. It is obvious that we disagree on what the truth is, but I respect your opinion, and I always welcome opposition. It causes me to be more deliberate in my studies. Be blessed!

DD: You are a big man to be able to say that and I admire you for that. Maybe you will be my friend, too. It’s a rare characteristic and therefore valuable. Yes, we do disagree, and like you, I always welcome opposition as it helps me sharpen my sword! Be real!

GB: I believe it as conviction from the Holy Spirit, you may not, but as soon as I left the comment prior to my apology I walked into my project managers’s office and started feeling dizzy. I then felt compelled to apologize. Immediately after I posted it I started feeling better. Your reply further affirmed it was the right action. That has never happened to me like that before. Crazy! I look forward to running into you again in cyberspace.

DD: Not in a car I hope! I accept your interpretation of what happened to you. My master is a neural-therapist and has explained to me how human’s filter their perception and give it meaning. Also, I operate under the presupposition that there is no REALITY so to speak, and that we all construct our own. From that standpoint, I would fight for your right to belive what you want. Grrrrr! And when any religious people reach out and try to change laws that take away my freedom… well, that’s when I get a little ticked off. So, we understand each other better now – which is great, because to me, that’s the main reason for us communicating with each other: to understand, not try to change the other person’s mind against thier will. Be well, GB man. Till we meet again! :0)

GB: Well said, Doug. Till then.

DD: Hoooowwwwl! (*wags tail and drools*)
