But, what the fuck, shit went south after he started working for the bitch. ... And yes, Girly was his primary drinking partner encouraging him to greater and greater levels of inebriation.

Paraphrased:
"After a productive career in the Computer Science I was called into the service of Jesus Christ in Feb. 2005. I heard a voice in my head that said 'if you want more of my Spirit, then you must forgo inebriation' I drank a lot of alcohol then, but stopped immediately and haven't drank since. I sold my business and went to work as a full-time employee for the Lord. Since that time I have lost my rental properties, my family, my house, and my retirement all in the service of the Lord. This does not deter me for the scriptures say that these things will happen. I fight on working for the Lord doing all that He leads me to do. My primary job for the Lord is to help people develop a real relationship with God. That is what the gospel is all about. It is NOT about going to church."

Have thought about asking dude to come over here and commune with us, but ain't sure it's a wise idea.

Note to self: if you hear voices in your head, seek professional help.

I still don't get it, Girly....what exactly does 'working full time for the LORD' mean? What's he doing for income? 0_°

He left the Government and went into business with a friend writing code under contract to the Government. He sold his share to his partner a while ago and probably pocketed a $1M or so. ... Dunno how much the ex-wife got or how much he got left. ... Why is it the theists are the ones always getting divorced?


Thing I find curious about this dude is that he pretty much shares my metaphysics. "You do realize dude, that if you gonna posit a postmortem preservation of identity it's incumbent on you to provide a plausible mechanism of action, right?" "Yes. I can't. But the Lord will guide me to the answer." ... It reminds me of discussing this very point with KC and him coming to a similar position. ... "Well, all righty then. Sure is hot out ain't it. Think we'll get rain?" ... Don't mean we can't be friends. Smile
