    Your deliberate misunderstanding fools nobody.
    If anyone showed the same disrespect for your religion and scripture, you'd be crying foul and bringing out the victim card. You are a consistently disingenuous poster, imo
    That's where it started. Deliberate misunderstanding is either mischevious or dishonest. You do yourself no favours.
    Everything. Read it again. You fool nobody. Last try from me.

    @RJM Corbet @Thomas @muhammad_isa

    When an OP raises an objection to a response that the OP says is not relevant to thread’s purpose I am usually among the first, if not the first, to defend the drift a thread may take. I am hard pressed to do that in this case. Somewhere, some time, early on this thread took a hard right, drove through the guard rails, dove off the cliff and landed us back into the middle of the difference of opinion that has been raging between you folks.

    It reminds of the climax of Blazing Saddles when the fight between the good guys and the villains spills over into the set of a musical.

    I’m not saying your conversation shouldn’t continue. I’m just saying that maybe you should think of moving it, metaphorically, outside.

    I am more afraid of fake love and a stab in the back than abject hate.

    Why wouldn't they? If you have them they are part of your being.

    People might enjoy talking about spirituality and beliefs because this aspect of the human existence, that is the spirit, is as fundamental to our existence as any other aspects of our being, like our mind or body.

    Hi...

    Yes, I agree. It's too bad that it takes so long for us to come to this conclusion; but it is the case, more often than not, that we only get there after working toward it for a long time. We might not even know what "it" will be like, but we are driven to seek anyway. And then comes that moment of gnosis which changes everything. From that moment on, nothing will ever be the same.

    I think we are all born with the capacity to comprehend the movements of spirit, but it takes awhile for us to mature enough, spiritually speaking, to have this aspect front and center in our existence all the time.
