Oh, I didn't know that.
I always believed this: if something is good for me it is a blessing.
For example, when someone is unkind to me I find that it is a blessing ( it is good for me). It is good because it is an opportunity to learn how to be kind to unkind person. It is an opportunity to learn to love or to like someone unconditionally. We call unconditional love "pure love of Christ".

Words are symbols.
The same symbols can have different meaning. People give meanings to symbols.
For example, "serpent" is symbol of God YHWH. But some people don't know this. Some people think that "serpent" is symbol of Devil only.

I could, if I choose to reply to more of your posts I will do this.

Don't bother, sweetheart. I'm putting you back on ignore where you belong. I only pulled you off because I heard that you were "doing better" this time around and I thought maybe you'd have something of value to say as such that I might be able to engage in some kind of meaningful conversation with you.

Guess not.

Yeah, and I'm with Jesse on this, though. I don't give a flying fuck if you say or think you're blessed. If you want to have productive communications with the forum members on TTA, then I would advise against the use of words that may rub people the wrong way. -But clearly this has never been your goal. You're back to proving your status as a Poe.

I didn't know that. Lends credence to HoC's (pbuh) observation that Satan is God's attorney. It's always good to have professional counsel and representation in these matters. All questions should be directed to my attorney. Smile

Satan takes what is good and true and corrupts it.

The Christadelphians teach that the serpent was just that, a serpent. That said, they also teach there is no actual devil, that the 'devil' is nothing more than a symbolic (anthropomorphic?) representation of humankind's propensity to sin.
