Already mentioned.

That and morondog made a good point... Maybe she cares a little?
Saw that after I posted, belongs in the grammar bugbears thread, its top 3 for me this one. Morondog does make a good point, but I do ask how much less he/she cares. That and using concerning instead of, is of concern, as in that is very concerning, I almost a seizure everytime I hear that.

But yeah, my posts pretty much redundant.

I pity the atheists who cannot separate Christ from the Christian Church; they remain in darkness, and they remain victims of the darkness. The reason I have never been successful at being an atheist, and the reason I have never been successful as a Christian is because of what happened in 1993.

In 1993, I tried an experiment: I read the Gospel of John, and when I did, I pretended I had never heard of it before. I pretended I had never heard of Christ, or the Church, or anything. I was just a man stranded on an island and this Gospel got washed up on the shore.

In reading it that way, and I realized immediately what I was looking at: This was a fictional story about me. Various aspects of my personality were represented by the various characters, and the ultimate being I was striving to be was Jesus Christ. I was amazed. Suddenly all the secret meanings, all the riddles, all the symbols and ideas of Christ became obvious. The Gospel was a story by me, for me.

That led me down a path that has never stopped in my life since then. I marvel at who could have written the Gospels way back when—who inspired the writers to write what they wrote? Where did they get the wisdom? I came to the reasonable conclusion that there must have actually been a person like Jesus Christ. I don’t know anything about him, because the Gospels are a fictional account and a teaching tool. They are designed to create a spiritual change in any person who reads them. But there must have been a person who inspired them. We call him Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

The following lyrics from the song, Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls sums up how I feel about Christ in my life:

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
And sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight


And now that midnight has passed, it is his birthday, and we have not missed him. Yvonne Eliman puts it well:




Merry Christmas!
Ironically your speech pretty much sums up my feelings on star trek, that aside Merry Christmas to you and your family Egor.

Oh goodie, an Egor slam and run for Christmas...what a wonderful way to represent for the Christians on their most hallowed of days.

See here they are, the bruises, some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Not sure if Christmas is their most hallowed day, Easter has to be the biggy.

She said, tongue firmly in cheek. Since Halloween, all talk has been about preparing for Christmas. Seems like it's mighty important as well as the best time to show people your best Christian face. Good will to all...and all that jazz.

Smile, I was focusing on hallowed, not popular.

Tsk, tsk! Don't be nasty on christmas, Egor. Actually, don't ever be nasty, I doubt your god likes it.

That said, have a nice christmas.

Not that I'm trying to tell Bucky to go homeWink

Plus, it seems even more appropriate in light of all the grammatical bickering above...
