sheye, in the words of Tina Turner:
"Whats love got to do with it"???
Whats love got to do with empathy and compassion?....I think alot
Tina Turner was talking about sex,in that song, which quite often has nothing to with love, especially considering what the song was about.
Sheye you can have empathy and compassion without believing we are only victims of evil.
than why don't you try practicing a little empathy and compassion sandra, cause i honestly only see you as a phoney person, who has no desire to SINCERELY pray for anyone,and if you were anykind of "real" christian, you wouldn't have made any of the comments that were so snide,rude,and self serving. You would have actually prayed for me,and believed that god would answer that prayer...at some point in time.But then again if god wanted me to see the "wisdom and truth of the bible", I'm sure He would have found a way by now....unless he actually enjoys having people sort of beg for things that he should already do if he is such a loving father.
I also didn't say we were only victims of evil either, but I do see the catholic church perpetuating much evil,and have for centuries....and the more I read the bible the more i see the BLATANT contradictions in it,and what a head game it really is.
Anyhow sandra, just do what you say you will if you're such a "true" christian , pray, pray, and pray some more. But for the sake of what you preach,please try and practice it.
I think thats enough said on the subject..don't you?
