    It is better to go to a house of mourning
    than to go to a house of feasting,
    since that is the end of all mankind,
    and the living should take it to heart.



    It is better to listen to rebuke from a wise person
    than to listen to the song of fools,

    An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.

    Oh wait, that's not from the bible. Nevermind.

    If it is not from the Bible then it does not belong here. Start you own thread for you own favourite quotes.

    Cut me some slack, even amoungst you believers you don't seem to know which is the right bible and which isn't. I mean you would think if a deity wrote a book it would be distinguishable in some way from an imitation, but apparently not.

    I believe rr is referring to the varying canon between the protestant and catholic bibles (for example). The Catholic bible comprises 73 books. The Eastern Church has more books again. So there is certainly substantial disagreement on what constitutes biblical material among the three major groupings of Christianity.

    Oh really, that must explain why there is only a single religion with a single denomination in the world today, a book with such profound insight that it could not be compete with or confused with books written by mere men.

    Again you are bringing up things which have nothing to do with me, I am not Catholic, I am not protestant, I am me, I believe what I believe. I have no confusion as to what the Bible is.

    1 Praise the Lord!
    Praise, O servants of the Lord,
    Praise the name of the Lord.
    2 Blessed be the name of the Lord
    From this time forth and forever.
    3 From the rising of the sun to its setting
    The name of the Lord is to be praised.
    4 The Lord is high above all nations;
    His glory is above the heavens.

    5 Who is like the Lord our God,
    Who is enthroned on high,
    6 Who humbles Himself to behold
    The things that are in heaven and in the earth?
    7 He raises the poor from the dust
    And lifts the needy from the ash heap,
    8 To make them sit with princes,
    With the princes of His people.
    9 He makes the barren woman abide in the house
    As a joyful mother of children.
    Praise the Lord!

    2 Kings 9:8

    For the whole house of Ahab shall perish: and I will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel:

    So you can post something that is true even if you have to quote it to get something right.

    I am not angry.
    I never said I was angry.
    You have no way of knowing whether I am angry or not.
    Stop making incorrect allegations.

    I can tell by your intolerance in your posts that you are very angry. It wasn't so obvious when you used to post the first time around but since resuming your general anger with everyone has been palpable.
