Wow. That's all I can say... wow. You have wonderful talent, and props to you for using it for His glory!

That is fantastically beautiful.
I get the feeling that these words were not your own and that they weren't a conscious "What would sound good here" sort of thing...they were written THROUGH you...not BY you...if my suspicion is correct, then I've felt the same thing when I wrote Again-read it if you like...
John 11:15-Jesus Loved Martha and Lazarus...
John 13:23-One of them, the disciple that Jesus loved, was sitting next to them...
Romans 8:39-Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Hallelujah, God bless.

I love it. I love the way you wrote it. The way it reads. I just love it! It really makes you think. And I love it. Congradulations on such a fine peie or literature. I love it and I can't put it in any other way.

Amen to that.

Xians, God is the omniscient ruler of the universe. He shouldn't need to prove Himself.
| Elanor Joy 6/23/05 . chapter 1
Xtions, will you email me? with more of where that review came from? My email is would you please email me?

OK, I'm not going to flame you, I just have an honest..well not really question. More like a thought process to share with you.
Exhibit A) God loves everyone, correct? I'm sure you would say yes.
Exhibit B) Since God loves everyone, He would not want anyone to go to Hell, correct? Again, I'm sure you would say yes.
Exhibit C) Many people believe in God without proof. Yes.
Exhibit D) Many don't. Like me.
Exhibit E) God is all powerful, and could therefore easily prove His existence to those who don't believe.
Exhibit F) If everyone believed, they would not go to Hell, and that would make God happy.
Exhibit G) But, I DON'T believe. And nothing has been done to prove to me that God exists, even though, by Christians' own claims, He could do so easily.
Exhibit F) Therefore one of two possibilities exist:
1) God doesn't love me.
2) God doesn't exist.
See Exhibit A, God loves everyone. Therefore the ONLY possibility is that God does not exist.
I have loads more if that didn't do it for you.

Yes God does love Xtians. However he does not like what this person is doing. This person has a tendency to not open his eyes and realize what he's doing to other people. If he has a problem with God, he should pray. God listens to prayer as much as he listens to anyone's prayer. This person, I don't know how this person strayed away from the truth, but I pray that God have mercy on them for their sinful actions. And for those encouraging him, you are just as guilty as he is.
It does say to turn the other cheek. But when you are defending God and the truth, that is the right thing to do. This person Xtians has this immense hatred against all Cristians. I don't know why, but he or she believes that Christiainity has wronged them. Its a shame and its tragic. I just pray this individual finds peace.
Yes Xtians, I used to study Japanese. Interesting that you think my name is Japanese. If you put aside your hatred Xtians, you can see that I'm not as terrible as you think I am. I suggest that if you have a problem with God, that you straighten it out with him, not take it out on others.
That is not the way to go at all.

I know what point you are trying to make, but the truth is, Christians don't have to be doormats. They have every right, and sometimes even a responsibility, to respond to unjust attacks against their faith.
Yes, we must love our neighbors, all of them, and sometimes the most loving thing to do is to challenge false perceptions and try to put things into perspective for those who are, well, let's say misguided.
Christians don't have to be "nice". Christians have to be good. Niceness can simply be a cover for other things, such as trying to be liked, at the expense of standing strong for God's revealed truth. This is, in fact, the opposite of goodness.
Goodness requires 1) putting the Lord first. That means defending Him, and His Church, when the occasion arises.
Goodness requires 2) being concerned for your fellow humans. This means that you speak the truth to them, and do your best to give them the opportunity to know the love of God and the saving graces of Christ. What they do with it is up to them, but goodness requires that we make an attempt, when it is possible.
So speaking to someone who is full of hate, to try to bring the truth to light, is an act of Christian charity. It should be done with the best interests of that person, and all people, at heart. Sometimes that requires strong words. It's not all about niceness. It's about truth.

I agrree. Turn the other cheek.
| Raine Ishida 6/21/05 . chapter 2
Ouch. Hit me with conviction why don'tCHA, Angel. :P It's about time someone posted this. Nice. Xians...if you want to honestly earn some respect over your 'reviews', get a log in name. Anonymous reviews are honestly difficult to take seriously.

Xtians is the devil in disguise. The devil can be in a man or a woman. My former reverand said that the devil can be a busy man or woman. This is someone who enjoys stirring up chaos just because he or she is very disturbed and miserable. They can't be miserable themselves. They must drag other people along with them.
| Laurie A 6/21/05 . chapter 1
Really powerful. Thank you for writing it.
What a hard and callous heart it must take to reject such incredible love. I'll never understand it, but thankfully I guess I don't have to. God takes care of all things.
Xtians Suck, posting your attack, filled with lies, hatred and ignorance, on every review board of every story on the site? You realize that the review section is for reviewing, right? Do you actually have absolutely nothing else to do with your time? Can anyone say obsession? Seriously, have you considered seeing someone about your mental illness? Wow.
Many people have already answered you, so it is not necessary for me to bother with it. It's all so ridiculous anyway. But really, good luck. You are disturbed and you need some help. Please try to get it.
