When you lose the rhythm of the drumbeat of god, you are lost from the peace and rhythm of life.
My favorite on the subject-
"Rythm is a dancer
Its a choice companion
You can feel it in the air"
Is that what happens when a kestrel grabs a sparrow in its talons (from the sparrow's point of view)? How about when Theo van Gogh was peacefully riding his bicycle along the quiet back streets of Amsterdam a few years ago, until that hate-crazed (i.e. a Koran-believing Mohammed-imitating) Muslim jumped out with his (illegally-owned) pistol blazing?
In Sunday school years ago, we sang, "God sees the little sparrow fall".
Jesus said, "...the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service". But He also said He will reprove the world of sin, and provide a place in heaven for those who trust in Him. I'm sure there are good Cheyenne Christians who also pray for Christ's speedy return.
Deep in the rain forest, the client asks about the steady rhythm of the drums. "No worry, drums good. Drums stop..... VERY BAD..."
On they go, drums keep playing. What do the drums mean? "No worry, drums good. Drums stop..... VERY BAD!!!!!"
After an hour or so, suddenly the drums stop.... Panicked, the client asks the guide... "OMG!!!! What's going on the drums stopped!!!!"
"DRUMS STOP!!!! VEEEERRRRY BAD!!!!! NOW COME BASS SOLO!!!!"
How does a professional trumpet player increase his gas milage?
He takes the Dominoes delivery sign off the roof!
I can't make any sense out of what you're trying to say.
1 Corinthians 1:21
For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
It is God's intention that worldly wisdom should not be the means of knowing Him. This world views Christian preaching, about Christ's crucifixion for our sins, as foolish. Some years ago, in a Russian novel (translated into English) I noticed a character labelled "a fool in Christ". It turns out that that is in the Bible.
Uh, huh. Johnny is the only one marching in time.
No reasoning with zealots.
Christains believe that only Christains can be inspired by God.
It is in the Bible.
I say the same God that speaks through the Bible, speaks throught the Cheyenne.
"For to be carnally minded [is] death; but to be spiritually minded [is] life and peace."
I've always used Romans 8:6 as a test, to see if I am on my correct spiritual path. Am I experiencing life and peace? Spirituality has a lot to do with how we feel.
Do I feel at peace? Do I feel the life in me? The Cheyenne was tapped into the same spirit.
Goofy freakin people.
The jews say that god told them all good people have a chance to be close to god. I don't see any good reason to reverse gods ideas on that.
One body of water with many wells.
God said let there be a supermarket. And so it was. They sell all sorts of green beans. Fresh. Frozen. Birds Eye. Green Giant. And it was good.
Over time, the Fresh bean eaters decided the people getting the frozen ones were going to Hell. The Birds Eye folks decided the Green Giant guys were unworthy and needed to be converted to Birds Eye or be killed.
God just said green beans are good for you. He's getting more than a little pissed.
I agree completely.
I've never heard that before but I really like it. Simple and poetic.
That would be a surprise to Christians from at least Justin Martyr (actually, St. Paul) to Pope Benedict XVI, and many in between.
Actually, even St. Joh (see John 11:51 and thereabouts).
Dude, I don't think you know OTHER Christians as well as you think you do. You are a lot more optimistic than I am based on my own experience. I am not a christian but I go to church with my wife because the christians at her church are just such a great bunch of people.
But seriously, some people at other churches are just batty. A guy in the bank the other day was telling the bank employees that people who sunbathe won't go to heaven because of vanity. This was in a freakin bank.
"Rythm is going to get you"
-Gloria Estefan (and the Miami Sound Machine)
OK, but that doesn't mean that you (in the rhetorical sense, not you, personally) can extrapolate from "some people at other churches" to "Christains believe that only Christains can be inspired by God."
That was pretty judgmental wasn't it? God sees the thoughts and intentions.
