    There are so many mistakes with the above that I wouldn't know where to begin, so I won't.

    Thank you.
    What does this mean? "Listen to thoughts". A thought is a thought because the mind imagines it is HEARING it. Do you mean "pay attention" to our good thoughts?
    No it isn't.. See outhouses quote to prove it isn't.
    You have demonstarted cognitive dissonance
    And who is the judge to judge what positve thoughts are? Which ones are poositive?
    Ok. Some minds are strong and can't be hypnotised.
    You are making a big mistake. When you speak of ancient people you group them all together to decribe them all the same. They are not all the same.
    Wrong. Some of my worst thoughts, that I might wish I never had, are from God's Spirit.

    Congratulations on taking most of my reply out of context.

    Please do!

    1Ki_12:20 And it came to pass, when all Israel heard that Jeroboam was come again, that they sent and called him unto the congregation, and made him king over all Israel: there was none that followed the house of David, but the tribe of Judah only.

    1 Ki 12:21 Now when Rehoboam had come to Jerusalem, he assembled all the house of Judah and the tribe of Benjamin, 180,000 chosen men who were warriors, to fight against the house of Israel to restore the kingdom to Rehoboam the son of Solomon. ...

    1 Ki 12:24 'Thus says the LORD, "You must not go up and fight against your relatives the sons of Israel; return every man to his house, for this thing has come from Me."'" So they listened to the word of the LORD, and returned and went their way according to the word of the LORD.

    1 Ki 15:16 Now there was war between Asa and Baasha king of Israel all their days.
    1 Ki 15:17 And Baasha king of Israel went up against Judah and fortified Ramah in order to prevent anyone from going out or coming in to Asa king of Judah.

    Judg 20:30 And the sons of Israel went up against the sons of Benjamin on the third day and arrayed themselves against Gibeah, as at other times.

    Judg 21:15 And the people were sorry for Benjamin because the LORD had made a breach in the tribes of Israel.

    And therefore by default, you are saying that scripture is historical. I think you have shot yourself in the foot.. haha. And if it is historical is it true, and if true, then spiritually discerned.... it is strange that you would even think in your wildest dreams that God would give you knowledge but not me.

    Haaahahahaaaaahaa... let me just pick myself up off the floor. That is funny. I will not have to take you too seriously I feel. I did not realise how deluded your were. Apologies. It is spiritually discerned whether you like it or not.

    Questions:
    Did you use to be a Christian?
    Why are you here as an atheist?

    'Positive thoughts' haha. This is funny
    Haha
    Hence the reason they always spoke of the 'little men' running round in them in the NT. Oh I can't come to the synagogue today, there are too many men running round in me. Haaaa ha. :) I am beginning to like you outhouse. You are funny.
    'Nature'? And what is nature?
    Because we are all different aspects of God, even you. :)

    That concept would have to exist outside mythology and imagination.


    it is strange that you would even think in your wildest dreams that I could not attend more college classes on this topic then you have, gaining more knowledge.

    No one gives you anything. You go out and earn and learn it.



    :facepalm:

    I did not say that did I?

    I was going to ask you where the head in hand was. I thought perhaps you had worn the button out.. haha. You say things which contradict the Bible, yet this is what you debate on. Why?

    You are asking a question. I wonder if you meant to. Yes that is what you said. Scripture is historical. It is written about a certain group of people, even if we can argue who they were. So it is history. People in history wrote it.

    Are you goiing to answer the two questions?

    Haha... you are so funny. I don't recall God saying that is how we learn. How would anyone know if they were poor, or before colleges? You rely too much on the thoughts of the world. The world is a corpse.

    So is your understanding of scripture.
    Tell me how you can try to understand something that says that you will NOT understand because you do not believe?!?

    How is it even possible to do that? I just don't know!
    I don't even know why you bother. Why do you?
    Why are you here? It makes no sense. What are you trying to prove?
    What (I look at it from your point of view) if you are wrong? Are you prepared to take that risk?

    My only answer is that it is some sort of therapy.
