    have you ever felt like your under a microscope when encountering religious funda-mentalists? that somehow they believe they can fix you? the need for attention and the need for social interaction sometimes placing you at risk?

    I don't tend to do much to inspire their wrath, but I do tamp down my center-left views when I am with my right wing friends. At least in my new location (we just moved a few months ago) nobody knows me as an ex-Christian, so I can avoid downplaying my non-Christianness.

    Nope.
    But I have heard religious people complaining that I am intimidating them. Just because of some snide remarks and even so they where in a vast majority.

    Not really... but one thing for sure, I needed to be reconstructed. (I don't like the word "fixed" - it reminds me of animals :) )

    But it wasn't fundies that did it but rather Jesus. :)

    what did he look like? was there other's in the room with you two? did he reveal himself to you and not to everyone? was he actually sitting/reclining on condensation/cloud? what did you guy's talk about?

    did he have an accent? did you even speak in english? was he wearing modern day attire or was he in 1st century dress? what triggered his appearance?


    flippant?

    Yes.
    Yes and can never figure out why. I'm perfectly broken to a perfection so flawed. I don't want to be "fixed".
    Getting out of bed and leaving the house every morning will do this.

    I met him via "virtual spiritual connectivity". He looked like love. My wife and her sister was there with many others. He had already revealed himself to everyone else.

    We talked about forgiveness, eternity and relationship.

    He knows every language and can speak in every native accent. I spoke to him in English (American).

    Faith triggered the encounter.... it was beautiful.

    Have you met him yet? ;)

    being in agreement with a protagonist and actually meeting someone is not the same thing.

    if i go with your scenario, then i have met babe the blue ox, the little red hen, and sam i am. aseop and I had a spiritual connectivity too.


    i'm deeply disappointed with your response.

    That OK.... As long as the one I serve isn't disappointed... he is the main one that I care about. Paul understood that too.

    Hope you had a great encounter with blue ox and little read hen. :)

    I think its more the intent to 'save' you. I found they truly fashion their whole life around the communities of St Paul.

    unfortunately you can't save someone from themselves. addicts have to want to change. you can't force them to change.

    jesus seemed to think the pharisees were drowning themselves in religiosity and tradition and didn't even realize they were drowning others with them.

    misery loves company?
