10 Year Olds

Quote:” It was humorous to me to read the title of your reply as ONE in answer to an inc corruptible word, or a word that defies counterfeit. I did not think to include numbers, and it was very obviously the answer to the previous question when you used ONE as the title.”

I am glad I was able to add a little humor to the good cop/bad cop day. Perhaps you will enjoy knowing as well, if I must confess, I looked to you for the answer!

QUOTE: “Some words, very few, defy misunderstanding, better than others and “ONE” in particular has so far managed to avoid any counterfeit, I can name “ONE”, can you?”

"Who took the liberty to take Liberty?"

Autoantonym: A word that can take two (or more) opposite meanings; e.g. fast means "moving quickly" or "fixed firmly in place", overlook means "to watch over carefully" or "to fail to notice".
• From Greek auto (=self) + anti (=against). Found at: http://www.fun-with-words.com/nym_words.html

From a Biblical point of view:
Satan took the liberty to take Liberty http://www.biblestudytools.com/kjv/genesis/3.html

God made Adam and Eve without the knowledge of good and evil. However, He made them with free volition and Satan took liberty to take Liberty.

Quote: "Our paths through the maze are constrained into narrow corridors with many cattle prods, razor wire, ignorance, apathy, misunderstanding, fear, worry, sorrow, depression, and other real or imagined fences keeping us in."

There is great hope:
John 10:10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal , and to kill , and to destroy : I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden , and I will give you rest .29Take my yoke upon you, and learnof me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Quote: “ I do have a brother whose wife is taking care of an abused child, and I've talked to her and she feels that "there aught to be a law" to stop the mother from abusing the child. I tried to explain how that was the problem not the solution, and that her care for the child was the solution not the problem.

Yes, and then we will have to decide what abuse is, and who is going to check for abuse, and where abuse will be checked, the punishment for abuse, as well as who is going to pay for this new govt provided service. Then of course the prison guard union will want all the abusive mother’s they can get for job security and the children will feed the foster care system demand.

Quote: “Do I contradict myself too often? I'm not seeing it.”

I don’t know. All I can say is Jeff’s answers like getting foster children has benefited the Ron Paul campaign because when I was upset about the political system he told me I would have to write letters, get involved, and donate to candidates…he has had to put his money where his mouth is every time there is a RP money bomb! If he doesn’t watch out there will be a half dozen foster kids at his table to feed!

I can understand your comment about the supply meeting demand in regards to being a foster parent. I was asking if you were going to get some in a “tongue in cheek” way. I will say though, why should those in the system suffer because if we were to do something to actually help 1, a single child, not all of the foster children as a group, just 1, from what kind of hell would that save them, that single individual child, not the mass? How much would helping that one single child cause the Legal Crime snow ball to increase? What is the worth of that one single child? Now I have said all that and I probably will not get that one single child unless God drops them on my doorstep, so to speak. Nor am I pushing you. Just making a point that doing something, any little thing, may help someone individual more than it hurts the problem as a whole.. Sometimes you treat the symptoms as well as treat the cause. If I need to have stitches, I will get a pain shot as well as have the wound is sown.

Quote: “How have religious organizations worked, in the past, to fill this demand for raising orphans?”
Here is the story of a hero: http://www.wholesomewords.org/biography/bmuller2.html

Just because some people or religious leaders are corrupt, or get corrupt should not keep me from doing something if God so leads.

Quote “What is the best money?”
It seems to me that perhaps the Legal Criminals are moving to natural resources…Just a thought.

Quote “Why doesn't the Federal Reserve People, these supposed economists, these supposed Authorities, write a check and pay off all the debt this afternoon?”

I have never entertained that question until you asked. Maybe the Chinese would not take kindley to diluted, fabricated money?

Quote: “Why do you think they make it illegal to question what they do with money? “

Because they have made themselves “LEGAL” criminals and have written the laws to make themselves above the law and accountable to no one.

Quote: “Consider looking deeper into the relationship between surface area and volume, it is an enlightening relationship. “

Whenever I think of it my brain hurts. Chemo messed me up.

Quote: “I get that concept, and I agree that it can be true, whereby there is much more to life than the time spent in physical human form, but as to what there is within that other state of being I have a difficult time with the accurate measure of it reported by authorities who claim to speak for God.”

Are you speaking of the words in the Bible as those who claim to speak for God?

Me "There is no hope outside of Christ. "The return of the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, is the hope of humanity."
You: I hope you are right, for your sake. For me, so far, there isn't much hope by that measure.

I hope that you can find hope in the hope that is promised in Scripture.

Me: "There will be a world dictator called the Anti-Christ who will not allow anyone to buy or sell except they have the mark of the beast."
You: “If I may be permitted to offer a rewording:
There will be universal deceit whereby no one will be allowed to survive without lying.”

I think Scripture teaches that people will actually believe a lie:

II Thessalonians 2:7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work : only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.8And then shall that Wicked be revealed , whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish ; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved . 11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Maybe the Fed thought they could use Joe’s Law to: produce money into oversupply thus reducing the price of money while purchasing power increases because money reduces the cost of production?

Me: "Who took the liberty to take Liberty?"
You: “What, if you can pretend for just long enough to arrive at a competitive question, what question would God ask of human beings, if you had to guess?”

God asks: “Will you appropriate my gift, the blood of my Son, for the payment of your sins?”

Quote: "I think your question works as a competitive question in this context, and if Jeff can do better, then he can.
How about a competitive answer. I have mine. I can put my competitive answer up against yours, Jeff's, or any other one."
1.My competitive answer to the question is Satan as discussed above.
2.Jeff's?
3. (a secret answer for now)

On involuntary taxes…I wonder if there is a conscientious objection angle that would work? Or, I suppose that didn’t work for the draft either? Quakers and Amish are pacifists. I wonder if they can reject the draft? Maybe there is a tax angle that can be worked? i.e. I cannot fight in a war and I can’t send my money for war either.

You “I am willing to believe that Jesus was God in human form once”
Me: "Have you believed this?"
You “I think yes, but I also think that I may have done otherwise at a specific moment in time.
When I was about 10 years old I remember going to Sunday School (Public Grade School too).”

I teach 10 year olds in my Sunday School class :)

What did you believe when you were 10?

What do you believe right now?

Quote: “I had this conversation, strictly my own imagination at work, with God and the Devil. I took it to be my job (that is to say I volunteered for this job) to be a mediator between them.
Am I crazy still?”

Aren’t we all crazy? How did the conversation go?, if you want to share.

Mediator: I Timothy 2:5: For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

Conversation between God and Satan
Job 1: 7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said , From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 8 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and eschewethevil?9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said , Doth Job fear God for nought?10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.11But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.12 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.

Conversation between Jesus & Satan:
Matthew 4:1Then was Jesus led upof the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.2And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred . 3And when the tempter came to him, he said , If thou be the Son of God, commandthat these stones be made bread.4But he answered and said , It is written , Man shall not liveby bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.5Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,6And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written , He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up , lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.7Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.8Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;9And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.10Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence , Satan: for it is written , Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve .11Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold , angels came and ministered unto him.
