Discussion:
HOW I CAME TO ACC IN 2003

In November 2003 David Matthieu posted a general request for help which
mentioned the name of my friend Woz who had been "moderated" on the
unmoderated ACC by Griz, Vera and their fundamentalist thugs. David
Matthieu spoke of the abuse and intimidation endured by my friend and fellow
CHRISTIAN ARTIST, Woz and many other Christians who were chased away from
ACC by Griz and Vera and their thugs. In 2003-2004 a number of Christians
of varying Christian traditions helped destroy the Griz cult (of which Vera
was a mjor member) to bring this NG back to its original intent - A FREE
UNMODERATED PUBLIC FORUM FOR ALL CHRISTIANS!! Though we were not an
homogenous group of Christians (we had various Christian belief from a wide
cross-section of Christianity) it was Christian unity against Griz, Vera and
their bully building team not cultish fundamentalist uniformity like Griz
and Vera demanded of others.

Rowland advised me against coming to ACC and told me it was a waste of my
time and talent. I ignored him. Gradually Rowland saw the benefit in
helping the Christians who had been abused by Griz and Vera and their thugs.
Rowland was joined later by Lawrence and Bradley (both from ARC where I had
been). After the destruction of the Griz cult Vera followed us to ARC.

Various members of the Griz cult used aliases ... including Vera. I was
warned about this (and their other intimidating tactics) in advance by a
number of their victims. I posted (annonymously) the testimony of one of
their victims who came to me for help.

All this may be verified by a simple Google search.

Anyone can discuss anything about Christian life on ACC (...and on any alt
newsgroup). It is NOT limited to ONLY fundamentalists, or ONLY evangelicals
or ONLY liberals. It is for ALL Christans. The point is then
to DISCUSS with these other Christians not to plonk them, chase them away or
tell lies and gossip about them.

ACC IS A PUBLIC UNMODERATED FORUM in the Alt NG hierarchy which according to
the FAQ for Alt NGs [ http://www.visi.com/~barr/alt-creation-guide.html]
....is a "refuge away from the control freaks, namespace purists and
net.cops ... that maintain and enforce the mainstream newsgroup guidelines."

ACC = alt.christian.christianlife which BY ITS TITLE is dedicated to
ANYTHING which comes up during CHRISTIAN LIFE.

ALL Christians from ALL denominations are welcome and NO Christian is banned
or censored at alt.christnet.christianlife. *[For a sample of the
many varying Christian denominations welcome at alt.christnet.christianlife
see Appendix A]

Just to clarify, I did not come to ACC to "stop the cult" and appeared

You are nothing but an evil liar. I have never met a person with that name.

Whoever claims that is a liar, especially if done in the way you accuse
people.

Go to an atheist group where you belong! Period.

TRUE CHRISTIAN FAQ

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What are True Christians? (aka Trew Kristyuns)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hostile warmongering brain-dead bible-worshipping fanatical fundamentalists
like Vera, Abby, Bob, etc

AKA

- Venomous Vera, Vera 666, The Nazi, Plonk Bottle Washer, The Plonk Addict
- scAbby, Obnoxious Abby, Juvenile Jeanutter, the Nutty Nurse
- Boring Belligerent Bob, Boob, ***@bob.bob, Tim Tam Security Guard, The
Blob Meister, ***@blob./blob

They are (except for the non-Trew Kristyun Pedro who is headed for Trew
Kristyun Hell)

- Trew Kristyuns
- funnyMENTALists

Pedro is also known as The Pedrophile, Thick as a Brick, Pedrododo, The Dodo
Turd


All of them are
- Grizian thugs
- Pedrophiles
- Woohoo Wankers
- Poopers

These are characterised by one or more of the following:
- an extreme lack of rationality
- fondness of logical fallacies
- repeated use of emotional appeals
- rigid adherence to Bronze Age mythology
- endorsement of pseudoscientific nonsense
- bigotry and discriminatory attitudes towards minority groups
- belief that certain children's media is the work of Satan
- propensity to vomit Bible verses instead of giving valid argument.

The pictures of ALL these True Christians (aka Trew Krustyuns) are at

http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/flame1.html


These pictures are as rare as a Fundamentalist who loves his enemy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What's wrong with True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns) ?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

They appear to be as happy as if they were in their right minds.

They have the following unfortunate features:

- a distrust and fear of freedom
- a belief in the importance of authority and in controlling what people
believe
- a corre­sponding preference for obedience rather than love
- a desire to give people what they want rather than the truth
- a refusal to allow themselves to be in the least disconcerted when
confronted with the true nature of their fundamentalist religion
- a readiness to persecute and exclude anyone who is of a different
persuasion.

They prefer authority, obedience, and conformity over freedom, truth, and
dissent.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Are the True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns) on this Newsgroup part of the
Griz cult?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yes. Key Characteristics of the Griz cult are [adapted from Joanne Ruhland
1995]:

- Content Which Is Authoritarian
- Indoctrinates / clones
- Unquestioning obedience / Leaders do not discuss questions
- Love and loyalty are the bottom line
- Indoctrination /Leaders' conclusions must be accepted.
- Emphasis on uniformity
- Elitist / accepts SOME Christians
- Hidden agenda
- Manipulates
- Leaders "lord" it over the flock
- Results in conformity, rigidity
- Allows one avenue of service ... serving their group
- Individual is responsible to leaders
- Leaders tell individual what God's will is
- Analytical thinking hindered
- Simplistic approach to life
- Pick your own bible verse to lead you / Choices must conform to leaders'
dictates, leaders' approval


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
How do True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns) forgive those who sin against
them?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The bible says in Matthew 18:21-22 " Then Peter came and said to Him, "Lord,
how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven
times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up
to seventy times seven.

So if someone sins against True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns) they make
sure they follow this verse exactly and keep a ....

TREW KRISTYUN FORGIVEN SIN TALLY

70 times 7 minus 1 for today = 489 times left ...and counting.

That way True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns) know exactly when they can hit
others with their steel encased KJV bible on the other cheek without
sinning.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
How does one translate from True Christianese (aka Trew Kristyunese) to
Plain English?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You are only political - You want to have rational, logical and intelligent
discussions

You are a heretic - I don't agree with you

You are satan - I *really* don't agree with you

You support heretics - You are a friend to people on the fringe and show
compassion and love

You invade the NG - You came here the same as I did but I assumed control
before you came here and you aren't taking that away

This NG is not for discussion/debates - I fear being challenged by different
views and opinions

I don't have a problem with English, you do - I cannot admit I may be wrong
and I sometimes misunderstand people

This NG has guidelines - Regardless of the facts presented to me as to why
this NG won't/can't/doesn't have guidelines I feel there must be some form
of control over this group to stop mature discussion


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Who are the beast fiends of True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns)?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All Trew Kristyuns, funnyMENTALists, Grizian thugs, Pedrophiles and other
assorted Woohoo Wankers and Poopers.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What are True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns)'s favourite bible verse?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A new Trew Kristyun commandment I give unto you, That you luv one another as
long as they are Trew Kristyuns ... hunt out the other heretical buggers in
a Trew Kristyun Inquisition and burn them alive at the stake ... in Trew
Kristyun luv. - Mark 17:666 (MTV)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BEFORE RESPONDING TO THIS POST READ ....

******************************************

Peter Cameron "Fundamentalism and Freedom" (Doubleday; Sydney: 1995.)

p. 10 ff

[Fundamentalists] They will be fearful in the face of any challenge to their
security and brutal in their reaction; they will seek to bolster their
security by ersuading others of its validity.; and those others will be
persuaded ecause of their own increasing sense of insecurity in the modern
world. ...Fundamentalists need an enemy; an enemy both gives them their own
identity and unites them. ...they stand for nothing positive at all - simply
obedience to rules and the condemnation of those who break them. ... it is a
religion of fear which proceeds by intimidation. ... Fundamentalism ...
thrives on protective stupidity. ...fear in the face of any challenge to the
status quo; ... brutality in suppressing dissent;

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From Os Guiness "Fit Bodies, Fat Minds: Why Evangelicals don't think and
what to do about it" ( Baker Books; Grand Rapids:1994)

p. 143

A fourth misconception concerns the idea that thinking Christianly is a form
of uniformity - in other words, that if we all think Christianly we will all
think the same way. Whe this happens, the goal of thinking Christianly
collapses into a frantic search for the one particular correct way of
thinking or acting. The result is he fallacy of "particularism", the
uniformity of a particular "Christianly Correct" way of thinking.
...[particularism] denies two requirements of thinking Christianly that
oppose all uniformity: the importance of diversity and the fact of human
fallibility.

p. 143 - 144

For another thing, applying the idea of uniformity is disastrous because it
leads inevitably to legalsim and judgementalism. There is only a short and
easy step from "This is the Christian way" to "There is only one Christian
way" to "Anything different from this Christian way is not Christian" to
"All those who differ fom my way are not Christians".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C Edward Baker "The Church's Neurosis & 20th Century Revelations" (Rider &
Co; London; 1975)

*[I have replaced his use of 'S. Paul" meaning Saint Paul with "St. Paul"
for easier reading.]

p. 37 - The writer of the Epistle of John said ' There is no fear in love,'
and that is true. It comes out very boldly in Jesus' story of the prodigal
son.

p. 38 - ...biblical fundamentalists. Their obscurantism and their inability
to look historical facts in the face mark them out as very insecure people
who need some outward token of infallible authority because they lack an
inner authority adequate to control their deep confusions and fears.
Psychotherapy constantly produces evidence that this narrowness of
view-point and tendency to bigotry covers an unfortunate tug-of-war between
instinctual drives and super-ego authority, issuing in obsessive symptoms.

p. 43 - Much of the urgency manifested by the church is prompted obviously
by fear, and not least fear of change.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Robin Skinner & John Cleese "LIFE ...and how to survive it" - (Methuen;
London:1993)

p. 270 - 271

John: So a religious idea will be interpreted by a person in a way that fits
in best with their existing psychology?

Robin: Yes, and it can therefore support them in functioning at the best
level they're capable of, given their limitations. ... Well, take people
functioning at the least healthy level first. They'll understand religion
as a collection of rules, of rewards and punishments, of threats and
promises, all enfoced by a powerful and frightening God.

John: The extreme black-and-white thinking found in young children?

Robin: That's exactly what it is. The thinking of such people has got
stuck at that level, and though it's normal in a very young child, it's
obviously unhealthy in an adult.
...
John: And how is God experienced?

Robin: He's seen as a terrifying, domineering, bad-temprered dictator, who
wants everyone to spend heir time admiring him and telling him how
marvellous he is. ... So naturally people holding this view feel they have
to do lots of things to keep Him sweet, so that He won't get into a bad mood
and blast them with thunderbolts, or boils, or rivers of blood.


p. 287

John: Well, everything that you've been saying implies that
[Fundamentalism] is a manifestation of a fairly low level of mental health,
doesn't it? For a start, Fundamentalists call for a literal interpretation
of scripture, and as we saw when we were discussing secular values, focusing
in on the letter of the law is a characteristic of the less healthy. In
addition, wise people tend not to exhibit literal mindedness, so it seems
singularly inappropriate to assume that this is the vein in which great
spiritual teahers are speaking. Then again, whether we're talking about
Christianity, Islam, Judaism or Hinduism, the values of Fundamentalists seem
aimed at making themselves feel better by placing all negative and
destructive emotions in people with different beliefs, and enjoying the
golden glow of self-justification that results. ... You know that simile:
'As rare as a Fundamentalist who loves his enemy.' ... the Inquisition did
largely miss the point of 'Love Thy Neighbour', didn't they? Wasn't burning
heretics 'worse' than being tolerant towards them? ...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Peter Cameron "Heretic" (Doubleday; Sydney: 1994)

p.18
One of the great services which Freud did was to draw attention to the
element of guilt and neurosis in religion.

p. 52
.. Christianity is a religion above all of freedom. Because freedom is a
prerequisite for everything else. You cannot love without freedom, you can
only have fear. You cannot have growth without freedom, you can only have
obedience. ... There is in fact a New Puritanism on the prowl in our
society, and it has to be resisted.

TRUE CHRISTIAN FAQ

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What are True Christians? (aka Trew Kristyuns)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hostile warmongering brain-dead bible-worshipping fanatical fundamentalists
like Vera, Abby, Bob, etc

AKA

- Venomous Vera, Vera 666, The Nazi, Plonk Bottle Washer, The Plonk Addict
- scAbby, Obnoxious Abby, Juvenile Jeanutter, the Nutty Nurse
- Boring Belligerent Bob, Boob, ***@bob.bob, Tim Tam Security Guard, The
Blob Meister, ***@blob./blob

They are (except for the non-Trew Kristyun Pedro who is headed for Trew
Kristyun Hell)

- Trew Kristyuns
- funnyMENTALists

Pedro is also known as The Pedrophile, Thick as a Brick, Pedrododo, The Dodo
Turd


All of them are
- Grizian thugs
- Pedrophiles
- Woohoo Wankers
- Poopers

These are characterised by one or more of the following:
- an extreme lack of rationality
- fondness of logical fallacies
- repeated use of emotional appeals
- rigid adherence to Bronze Age mythology
- endorsement of pseudoscientific nonsense
- bigotry and discriminatory attitudes towards minority groups
- belief that certain children's media is the work of Satan
- propensity to vomit Bible verses instead of giving valid argument.

The pictures of ALL these True Christians (aka Trew Krustyuns) are at

http://www.winternet.com/~mikelr/flame1.html


These pictures are as rare as a Fundamentalist who loves his enemy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What's wrong with True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns) ?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

They appear to be as happy as if they were in their right minds.

They have the following unfortunate features:

- a distrust and fear of freedom
- a belief in the importance of authority and in controlling what people
believe
- a corre­sponding preference for obedience rather than love
- a desire to give people what they want rather than the truth
- a refusal to allow themselves to be in the least disconcerted when
confronted with the true nature of their fundamentalist religion
- a readiness to persecute and exclude anyone who is of a different
persuasion.

They prefer authority, obedience, and conformity over freedom, truth, and
dissent.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Are the True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns) on this Newsgroup part of the
Griz cult?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yes. Key Characteristics of the Griz cult are [adapted from Joanne Ruhland
1995]:

- Content Which Is Authoritarian
- Indoctrinates / clones
- Unquestioning obedience / Leaders do not discuss questions
- Love and loyalty are the bottom line
- Indoctrination /Leaders' conclusions must be accepted.
- Emphasis on uniformity
- Elitist / accepts SOME Christians
- Hidden agenda
- Manipulates
- Leaders "lord" it over the flock
- Results in conformity, rigidity
- Allows one avenue of service ... serving their group
- Individual is responsible to leaders
- Leaders tell individual what God's will is
- Analytical thinking hindered
- Simplistic approach to life
- Pick your own bible verse to lead you / Choices must conform to leaders'
dictates, leaders' approval


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
How do True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns) forgive those who sin against
them?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The bible says in Matthew 18:21-22 " Then Peter came and said to Him, "Lord,
how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven
times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up
to seventy times seven.

So if someone sins against True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns) they make
sure they follow this verse exactly and keep a ....

TREW KRISTYUN FORGIVEN SIN TALLY

70 times 7 minus 1 for today = 489 times left ...and counting.

That way True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns) know exactly when they can hit
others with their steel encased KJV bible on the other cheek without
sinning.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
How does one translate from True Christianese (aka Trew Kristyunese) to
Plain English?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You are only political - You want to have rational, logical and intelligent
discussions

You are a heretic - I don't agree with you

You are satan - I *really* don't agree with you

You support heretics - You are a friend to people on the fringe and show
compassion and love

You invade the NG - You came here the same as I did but I assumed control
before you came here and you aren't taking that away

This NG is not for discussion/debates - I fear being challenged by different
views and opinions

I don't have a problem with English, you do - I cannot admit I may be wrong
and I sometimes misunderstand people

This NG has guidelines - Regardless of the facts presented to me as to why
this NG won't/can't/doesn't have guidelines I feel there must be some form
of control over this group to stop mature discussion


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Who are the beast fiends of True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns)?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All Trew Kristyuns, funnyMENTALists, Grizian thugs, Pedrophiles and other
assorted Woohoo Wankers and Poopers.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What are True Christians (aka Trew Kristyuns)'s favourite bible verse?

A new Trew Kristyun commandment I give unto you, That you luv one another as

a Trew Kristyun Inquisition and burn them alive at the stake ... in Trew
Kristyun luv. - Mark 17:666 (MTV)

persuaded ecause of their own increasing sense of insecurity in the modern
world. ...Fundamentalists need an enemy; an enemy both gives them their own
identity and unites them. ...they stand for nothing positive at all - simply
obedience to rules and the condemnation of those who break them. ... it is a
religion of fear which proceeds by intimidation. ... Fundamentalism ...
thrives on protective stupidity. ...fear in the face of any challenge to the
status quo; ... brutality in suppressing dissent;

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From Os Guiness "Fit Bodies, Fat Minds: Why Evangelicals don't think and
what to do about it" ( Baker Books; Grand Rapids:1994)

p. 143

A fourth misconception concerns the idea that thinking Christianly is a form
of uniformity - in other words, that if we all think Christianly we will all
think the same way. Whe this happens, the goal of thinking Christianly
collapses into a frantic search for the one particular correct way of
thinking or acting. The result is he fallacy of "particularism", the
uniformity of a particular "Christianly Correct" way of thinking.
...[particularism] denies two requirements of thinking Christianly that
oppose all uniformity: the importance of diversity and the fact of human
fallibility.

p. 143 - 144

For another thing, applying the idea of uniformity is disastrous because it
leads inevitably to legalsim and judgementalism. There is only a short and
easy step from "This is the Christian way" to "There is only one Christian
way" to "Anything different from this Christian way is not Christian" to
"All those who differ fom my way are not Christians".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

C Edward Baker "The Church's Neurosis & 20th Century Revelations" (Rider &
Co; London; 1975)

*[I have replaced his use of 'S. Paul" meaning Saint Paul with "St. Paul"
for easier reading.]

p. 37 - The writer of the Epistle of John said ' There is no fear in love,'
and that is true. It comes out very boldly in Jesus' story of the prodigal
son.

p. 38 - ...biblical fundamentalists. Their obscurantism and their inability
to look historical facts in the face mark them out as very insecure people
who need some outward token of infallible authority because they lack an
inner authority adequate to control their deep confusions and fears.
Psychotherapy constantly produces evidence that this narrowness of
view-point and tendency to bigotry covers an unfortunate tug-of-war between
instinctual drives and super-ego authority, issuing in obsessive symptoms.

p. 43 - Much of the urgency manifested by the church is prompted obviously
by fear, and not least fear of change.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Robin Skinner & John Cleese "LIFE ...and how to survive it" - (Methuen;
London:1993)

p. 270 - 271

John: So a religious idea will be interpreted by a person in a way that fits
in best with their existing psychology?

Robin: Yes, and it can therefore support them in functioning at the best
level they're capable of, given their limitations. ... Well, take people
functioning at the least healthy level first. They'll understand religion
as a collection of rules, of rewards and punishments, of threats and
promises, all enfoced by a powerful and frightening God.

John: The extreme black-and-white thinking found in young children?

Robin: That's exactly what it is. The thinking of such people has got
stuck at that level, and though it's normal in a very young child, it's
obviously unhealthy in an adult.
...
John: And how is God experienced?

Robin: He's seen as a terrifying, domineering, bad-temprered dictator, who
wants everyone to spend heir time admiring him and telling him how
marvellous he is. ... So naturally people holding this view feel they have
to do lots of things to keep Him sweet, so that He won't get into a bad mood
and blast them with thunderbolts, or boils, or rivers of blood.


p. 287

John: Well, everything that you've been saying implies that
[Fundamentalism] is a manifestation of a fairly low level of mental health,
doesn't it? For a start, Fundamentalists call for a literal interpretation
of scripture, and as we saw when we were discussing secular values, focusing
in on the letter of the law is a characteristic of the less healthy. In
addition, wise people tend not to exhibit literal mindedness, so it seems
singularly inappropriate to assume that this is the vein in which great
spiritual teahers are speaking. Then again, whether we're talking about
Christianity, Islam, Judaism or Hinduism, the values of Fundamentalists seem
aimed at making themselves feel better by placing all negative and
destructive emotions in people with different beliefs, and enjoying the
golden glow of self-justification that results. ... You know that simile:
'As rare as a Fundamentalist who loves his enemy.' ... the Inquisition did
largely miss the point of 'Love Thy Neighbour', didn't they? Wasn't burning
heretics 'worse' than being tolerant towards them? ...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Peter Cameron "Heretic" (Doubleday; Sydney: 1994)

p.18
One of the great services which Freud did was to draw attention to the
element of guilt and neurosis in religion.

p. 52
.. Christianity is a religion above all of freedom. Because freedom is a
prerequisite for everything else. You cannot love without freedom, you can
only have fear. You cannot have growth without freedom, you can only have
obedience. ... There is in fact a New Puritanism on the prowl in our
society, and it has to be resisted.

In November 2003 David Matthieu posted a general
request for help
which mentioned the name of my friend Woz who had
been "moderated" on
the unmoderated ACC by Griz, Vera
You are nothing but an evil liar. I have never met a
person with that name.
Whoever claims that is a liar, especially if done in
the way you accuse
people.
Go to an atheist group where you belong! Period.

In November 2003 David Matthieu posted a general request for help which
mentioned the name of my friend Woz who had been "moderated" on the
unmoderated ACC by Griz, Vera and their fundamentalist thugs. David
Matthieu spoke of the abuse and intimidation endured by my friend and fellow
CHRISTIAN ARTIST, Woz and many other Christians who were chased away from
ACC by Griz and Vera and their thugs. In 2003-2004 a number of Christians
of varying Christian traditions helped destroy the Griz cult (of which Vera
was a mjor member) to bring this NG back to its original intent - A FREE
UNMODERATED PUBLIC FORUM FOR ALL CHRISTIANS!! Though we were not an
homogenous group of Christians (we had various Christian belief from a wide
cross-section of Christianity) it was Christian unity against Griz, Vera and
their bully building team not cultish fundamentalist uniformity like Griz
and Vera demanded of others.
Rowland advised me against coming to ACC and told me it was a waste of my
time and talent. I ignored him. Gradually Rowland saw the benefit in
helping the Christians who had been abused by Griz and Vera and their thugs.
Rowland was joined later by Lawrence and Bradley (both from ARC where I had
been). After the destruction of the Griz cult Vera followed us to ARC.
Various members of the Griz cult used aliases ... including Vera. I was
warned about this (and their other intimidating tactics) in advance by a
number of their victims. I posted (annonymously) the testimony of one of
their victims who came to me for help.
All this may be verified by a simple Google search.
Anyone can discuss anything about Christian life on ACC (...and on any alt
newsgroup). It is NOT limited to ONLY fundamentalists, or ONLY evangelicals
or ONLY liberals. It is for ALL Christans. The point is then
to DISCUSS with these other Christians not to plonk them, chase them away or
tell lies and gossip about them.
ACC IS A PUBLIC UNMODERATED FORUM in the Alt NG hierarchy which according to
the FAQ for Alt NGs [ http://www.visi.com/~barr/alt-creation-guide.html]
....is a "refuge away from the control freaks, namespace purists and
net.cops ... that maintain and enforce the mainstream newsgroup guidelines."
ACC = alt.christian.christianlife which BY ITS TITLE is dedicated to
ANYTHING which comes up during CHRISTIAN LIFE.
ALL Christians from ALL denominations are welcome and NO Christian is banned
or censored at alt.christnet.christianlife. *[For a sample of the
many varying Christian denominations welcome at

A Christian would tell him to stop lying about his brothers and sisters and
to stop spamming.

I am not glad to have Mark Tindall here. He has hurt and harmed too many
people.

But, on the other hand, the difference between the wheat and the chaff is
clearly seen. People who support Mark in his evil doing - what will the Lord
say about that one day?

I do not think he will bless that... and touch Mark. Mark would not want
that, and he has made that pretty clear again and again.

You, Faye, do not help him at all, but keep him in a state of feeling save
and of being right to act like he does and to believe like he does. That is
a big sin. You lie at him. He knows that - so how could he ever take you
seriously?

I will tell you something: He is laughing about you, and I can understand
that. He is taking me much more seriously than you - does that not strike
you? You have become more and more alike to him, even against other
Christians. But you did not say you belong to my family, did you?

Go with the chaff if you prefer that. But better do not quote the Bible if
you do not take it seriously enough.

Glad you are here, Mark.
May God lead and guide all who participate and/or lurk.
Have a great day/night! :o)
A Christian would tell him to stop lying about his brothers and sisters and
to stop spamming.
I am not glad to have Mark Tindall here. He has hurt and harmed too many
people.
But, on the other hand, the difference between the wheat and the chaff is
clearly seen. People who support Mark in his evil doing - what will the Lord
say about that one day?
I do not think he will bless that... and touch Mark. Mark would not want
that, and he has made that pretty clear again and again.

forgive an adulterous husband, if he just keeps doing that? She can only

This is where the English translation suffers, and we have significant
misunderstand between the English and the Greek.

The Greek word used for "sinned against" is aphiemi.

Aphiemi is, according to the Greek Lexicon I have which includes
Strongs, a word that is spoken in the present tense..

So it's not so much "sinned against", but "as we forgive our
debtors"(KJV AV 1611)..

God does not want us to act like bigots simply because people around us
treat us badly. He wishes for His children to pass on the same mercy and
grace Jesus Christ Himself showed.

But do you not understand....

That is when the innerrant Bible suddenly becomes errant.

Only those parts which allows one to be judhemental, hold grudges, or
actually obey and follow Jesus are "inerrant".

What an ifiot Jesus was to allow such words as the following to come out
of His mouth:

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do
good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you,
and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in
heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and
sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. ... Be ye therefore perfect,
even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." (Mt 5:44-45,48.)

"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even
'sinners' love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who
are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' do that. 34
And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is
that to you? Even 'sinners' lend to 'sinners,' expecting to be repaid in
full. 35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them
without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great,
and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the
ungrateful and wicked. 36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
(Luke 6:32)

Let us cut the following verses out of all Bibles now!!


Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another
hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou
shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly
comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as
thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the
fulfilling of the law.' (Romans 13:8-10)

'For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love
thy neighbour as thyself.' (Galatians 5:14)

'But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is
no law.' (Galatians 5:22,23)


Don't they blaspheme the honorable name by which you are called? However,
if you fulfill the royal law, according to the Scripture, "You shall love
your neighbor as yourself," you do well. But if you show partiality, you
commit sin, being convicted by the law as transgressors. For whoever shall
keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he has become guilty of
all. For he who said, "Do not commit adultery," said also, "Do not commit
murder." Now if you do not commit adultery, but murder, you have become a
transgressor of the law. So speak, and so do, as men who are to be judged
by a law of freedom. For judgment is without mercy to him who has shown no
mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. (James 2:7-13)

Sicj verses were surely added by "liberal false Chrisians scum".

Why can't you understand that?

(Oh, and for anyone cannot tell...that was sarcasm.)

(NLT) Matthew 6:12 and forgive us our sins, just as we have forgiven those
who have sinned against us.
Yes, SINNED past tense. You can't forgive someone who is actively and
viscously attacking you. You can only forgive someone who STOPS what
they are doing wrong, and asks for your forgiveness. How does a wife
forgive an adulterous husband, if he just keeps doing that? She can only
forgive if he stops, and begs for forgiveness, and even then it would be
very difficult.
I would remind people that Jesus forgave those who would kill him, while
they were actively killing him.

I would suggest that the act of forgiveness is between trespassee (the one
hurt) and God. For if it relies upon the trespassor relenting and
repenting, then the process hinges not upon God but upon the doer of evil.
The power of forgiveness then become theirs, instead of God's -- because
they could then choose to keep a wound open and unhealed for as long as they
desire.
Key in this is remembering that all sin is against God. If we take sin
personally, it will cause us to stumble repeatedly. (Yes, I know this can
be very hard, especially if a pervading and persistent hurt was produced).

In Christ, we can forgive and heal -- even if a trespassor against us should
choose to remain unrepentant. I won't deny that it certainly is easier
should they recant and repent! But forgiveness is not dependent upon anyone
else's actions. It is a Spiritual transaction between us and our Father.

Our forgiving others, doesn't rely upon them to even the smallest degree.
Our forgiving them is a function between us and God. The hardened heart of
another can NEVER confound that process -- unless we choose to take the
trespass personally.

Yours in Christ,

Yes, SINNED past tense. You can't forgive someone who
is actively and viscously attacking you. You can only
forgive someone who STOPS what they are doing wrong,
and asks for your forgiveness. How does a wife
forgive an adulterous husband, if he just keeps doing
that? She can only forgive if he stops, and begs for
forgiveness, and even then it would be very
difficult.
rgds,
Pete
I don't agree pedro. I have forgiven Vera and Jeannette
and even you for the hurt. Up until last night they
called me names continually and attacked. However I am
letting it go and letting God. Only he can give me
Peace and Love and Unspeakable Joy. Glad you are here
pedro. Thank you for your posts.

Glad you are here, Mark.
May God lead and guide all who participate and/or lurk.
Have a great day/night! :o)
A Christian would tell him to stop lying about his brothers and
sisters and to stop spamming.
I am not glad to have Mark Tindall here. He has hurt and harmed too
many people.
But, on the other hand, the difference between the wheat and the
chaff is clearly seen. People who support Mark in his evil doing -
what will the Lord say about that one day?
I do not think he will bless that... and touch Mark. Mark would not
want that, and he has made that pretty clear again and again.
You, Faye, do not help him at all, but keep him in a state of
feeling save and of being right to act like he does and to believe
like he does. That is a big sin. You lie at him. He knows that - so
how could he ever take you seriously?
I will tell you something: He is laughing about you, and I can
understand that. He is taking me much more seriously than you - does
that not strike you? You have become more and more alike to him,
even against other Christians. But you did not say you belong to my
family, did you?
Go with the chaff if you prefer that. But better do not quote the
Bible if you do not take it seriously enough.

Vera, you have hurt many people. Should they forgive you?
If yes,
should you forgive him?
(NLT) Matthew 6:12 and forgive us our sins, just as we have forgiven
those who have sinned against us.
Who are those people, and what did I do that hurt them?

Nobody has to forgive me any hurt I did not do.

There are people you are sick with jealousy, for example. If they are hurt
by my existence, I cannot help them, neither those who I might have hurt
what I believe. Same with those who tell lies about me are hurt that I still
say they are wrong with their lies about me - like you were and are.

Now you accuse me... So go and get those people I have hurt that they can
tell ME to clear that up. If I hurt you last year, before you accused me of
being guilty for whatever: By what?

That is the way. Clear things up and talk about them, do not simply accuse
people of things without proof or reason.

No, I do not lie.

I invited you back to ACC remember. Since then you have been nothing but
an ungrateful bitch.

For all at alt.christnet.christianlife

Now that the Grizzle Guts cult has lost most of its sting the question of
how we treat former members and their victims is an issue that needs to be
discussed and addressed by all, as is our learning from the mistakes of the
past.

When the Nazis took over Germany in WW II the Lutheran church was divided
into those who supported Hitler and those who opposed him. After the war
the two sides reconciled and became one again with forgiveness on both
sides.

We cannot be like those who have victimised us. We cannot be tryrants of
another ilk or "bullies for freedom" when the war is over. We cannot change
the old regime for a new regime.

If we claim to be Christian then we should great others who claim to be
Christian as our brothers and sisters. As this unmoderated forum is for ALL
Christians there will always be denominational differences. This should not
be a bar for fellowship nor a reason to stop talking to another who claims
to be Christian. No-one should be forced to believe the same doctrine as
another Christian.

In the same manner, there can be no leaders. We are ALL equal in Christ and
members of the same body. We ALL have a part to play ... including Vera and
Griz.

I ask for others to comment on and discuss this aspect that needs to be
addressed before it arrives on our doorstep unawares.

Maybe you could read II Corinthians 3-11 as a start for these dicussions.
There has been a fight for the freedom of this newsgroup. That freedom is
all but won. What do we do now to heal the victims and help the vanquished?

Mark

Mark,

This is - er - weird stuff.

Please don't bring this up anymore? I am frankly sick of reading the
misrepresentations of fact around Larry, too.

If he has a problem with that, that's between him and God, you know? And if
he has cast it at the foot of the cross and is battling it, isn't it much
the same as an alcoholic or a drug addict or some other addicted
personality, casting their problem at the foot of the cross and letting God
deal with them?

Same can be said for a babe in the Lord, who is learning about love and
forgiveness. It's sometimes *very* difficult when one perceives the pain as
much stronger than the idea of forgiveness, and I LOVE the way that Lawrence
and Griz have presented it (forgiveness) in their posts; JESUS FORGAVE US
WHEN WE DESERVED IT LEAST! Jesus FORGAVE so that we COULD repent.

God bless,

I see the words posted, said very well and quite lovely,but I don't see
the asking of or the
acknowledgement that it be given as much as it needs to be received.
See, no one thinks they have done anything wrong, so why ask for
forgiveness?
The point is not about forgiving, the point is "I was right, you were wrong.
You should forgive me
I have done nothing to you so why should I forgive you......... See?
How do we fix that?

Mark,

You and I both know that Larry publicly repented of those things. Leave it
alone, OK?

WE need to forgive: ALL OF US NEED TO FORGIVE inasmuch as we have been
FORGIVEN, right?

Let it GO - remember that Newsboys song?

*I* was remarking on the other part of your statement; the word next to
*prophet* - and which I will not repeat - e-mail me privately if you are
interested in knowing why, as I won't share publicly the darkness from an
almost 20-year ago past.

God bless,

If Vera or Griz insist that the prophecies mean that the "vision" should be
revived then they will be used. History cannot be rewritten.

Hi, Vera,

We ALL need to move forward - leave the past in the past where it is; some
of those posts aren't even archived anymore, Mark; some of them have been

Out of fear, right? Or was that concern on her part? Either way, we are all

Go with the chaff if you prefer that. But better do not quote the Bible if
you do not take it seriously enough.
--
May I only say Vera that you have your own field to farm. You also have
chaff
and may you take it seriously.

Re: Combines and Wheat (Mt13:47-50)

As we considered the separation of the weeds from the wheat, to be
burned, and see repeated the concept of "wailing and gnashing of teeth"
(Mt13:42,50); not a whole lot is said in this conjunction about the
wheat, and it's "path" to the "granary." (vs30)

Since this week's Matthew study spoke of a "combine" let's continue
with that theme. In the US and Canada (and many other countries) where
farms exist as "thousands of acres" over the years very large equipment
has been developed to deal with the labor. The term "combine" came
about when a single machine would "combine" the tasks of "cutting,
swathing, threshing, sifting" in one operation.

sensi:
Does the mind have thousands of acres? Farmers?

When the crop is cut, it is funnelled into the "cylinder." This is a
device which spins at a very high speed, and contains "bars" which whiz
by a "beater bar" at very close range. The purpose is to "smash"
everything into tiny bits, and break the wheat kernel loose from the
husk of the head. This process is so "violent" that farmers who had
momentary lapses of carefulness have lost limbs, and sometimes their
lives, when their hand or foot has been caught in it. This cylinder/bar
combination is "adjusted" so as to separate the wheat kernels from the
chaff, without pulverizing the actual wheat kernels.

sensi:
You have both! WE all do!

In ancient times the
function of the cylinder was done by oxen "treading" the grain.
(De25:4,1Cor9:9,1Ti5:18) Paul spoke of the "sufferings of Christ" like
being "pressed out of measure, above strength; so much so that we
despaired even of life." (2cor1:5-8)

Once past the cylinder, everything is processed through the shakers. A
huge fan blows, and the sieves shake. Straw and light chaff get blown
right out the top. Other smaller items like husks, contaminants, weed
seeds, and wheat process on down through several layers of sieves.
Eventually the lighter husks, weed seeds get blown out the intermediate
layers; and the wheat, being the heaviest, passes down through all the
layers to the bottom where, hopefully, it is by itself...and gets
augered up into the hopper (storage container).

sensi:
Vera do you have any weed seeds in your mind? I know I do.

The air supply from the fan, and the sieves are all adjustable. If
there is too much wind, some of the wheat will blow out the back. If
there is not enough, some of the debris will end up in the hopper along
with the wheat. So the farmer, while getting set up for harvest, stops
periodically, looking on the ground behind the combine to see how much
wheat is ending up on the ground; and compares what he sees there, with
how "clean" the wheat in the hopper is.

Sometimes, this "balance" is such that the lighter, less-mature grains
of wheat simply cannot be accomodated, and there is no way to keep the
hopper clean, and also retain the light kernels. They must simply be
considered part of the "loss" of the harvest.

In ancient times once the ox had treaded the husks away from the straw,
on a windy day, the pile of wheat, chaff, husks would be repeatedly
tossed in the air with large "scoops." The wind would "drive the chaff"
away. (Ps1:4)

However, if the wind was strong enough, the lighter, immature wheat
would also blow away. Paul exhorts, "..no longer..be infants
(immature), tossed to and fro and carried about by every wind of
doctrine.." (Eph4:14)

We all have many infant ideas. Childish we are only by the ideas we keep.

You see what the wheat must endure before ending up in the granary? Not
only is it in peril while growing; from weeds, birds, drought, etc. But
the harvest process is also trying. Paul speaks of our works being
"revealed. For the Day shall declare it." (1Cor3:13) If you thought
that the Christian life is "sunshine and roses" and everything is
"happy as a lark" with a life of ease as you simply go to church to
"Praise the Lord" and get all "pumped up" ...think again!! EVERY KERNEL
of wheat that makes it into the granary goes through this same process.
Jesus said, "in this world you SHALL have tribulation." (Jn16:33)

sensi:
You have your own world and your own wheat and chaff to contend with.

Our wills must be broken through the cylinder as we learn, "not my will
but Yours be done." (Lk22:42) And all along the way we are blown,
shaken, dropped, shaken some more, blown on again, and fall again;
experiencing God's "discipline" of which "all" are partakers. (Heb12:8)
"..for whom the Lord loves He chastens, and He scourges every son whom
He receives." (vs6)

However, this process is not a random willy-nilly thing. The Lord
"adjusts" that cylinder and those sieves "just right." (Heb12:10)
Typically, the hired hand/s do not make such critical adjustments. The
harvest and the "profit" for the year are too much at stake. While the
hired hand will drive the combine (angels Mt13:41),

Vera is a farmer too

the Farmer,
Himself,

(13:3,18,30,37,41) makes the adjustments, and crawls around
behind to see how much is escaping out the back. Or how many kernels
were crushed by the cylinder. The Farmer is "experienced" in these
matters. He "will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able"
(1Cor10:13) because He has experienced it "in all points just as we
are" (Heb4:15) as we follow in His example. (1Pt2:21-24)

He "chastens" us "for our profit, that we might be partakers of His
holiness." (Heb12:10) Truly, it is not always "joyous." But in the end
"it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who are
exercised by it..." (vs11) Thus, we can entrust our souls to our
"Shepherd and Overseer."(1Pt2:25)




What is chaff?
Chaff is made up of glumes, hulls, unthreshed heads and pods, short straw,
leaf material, and whole or cracked kernels or seeds from cereal, oilseed
and pulse crops.**** Weed seeds******* are also a major component of chaff.
Got any?

Just a good lesson I had to learn, I'm offering to you.

Re: Combines and Wheat (Mt13:47-50)
As we considered the separation of the weeds from the wheat, to be
burned, and see repeated the concept of "wailing and gnashing of
teeth" (Mt13:42,50); not a whole lot is said in this conjunction
about the
wheat, and it's "path" to the "granary." (vs30)
Since this week's Matthew study spoke of a "combine" let's continue
with that theme. In the US and Canada (and many other countries) where
farms exist as "thousands of acres" over the years very large
equipment has been developed to deal with the labor. The term
"combine" came
about when a single machine would "combine" the tasks of "cutting,
swathing, threshing, sifting" in one operation.
Does the mind have thousands of acres? Farmers?
When the crop is cut, it is funnelled into the "cylinder." This is a
device which spins at a very high speed, and contains "bars" which whiz
by a "beater bar" at very close range. The purpose is to "smash"
everything into tiny bits, and break the wheat kernel loose from the
husk of the head. This process is so "violent" that farmers who had
momentary lapses of carefulness have lost limbs, and sometimes their
lives, when their hand or foot has been caught in it. This
cylinder/bar combination is "adjusted" so as to separate the wheat
kernels from the chaff, without pulverizing the actual wheat kernels.
You have both! WE all do!
In ancient times the
function of the cylinder was done by oxen "treading" the grain.
(De25:4,1Cor9:9,1Ti5:18) Paul spoke of the "sufferings of Christ" like
being "pressed out of measure, above strength; so much so that we
despaired even of life." (2cor1:5-8)
Once past the cylinder, everything is processed through the shakers. A
huge fan blows, and the sieves shake. Straw and light chaff get blown
right out the top. Other smaller items like husks, contaminants, weed
seeds, and wheat process on down through several layers of sieves.
Eventually the lighter husks, weed seeds get blown out the
intermediate layers; and the wheat, being the heaviest, passes down
through all the layers to the bottom where, hopefully, it is by
itself...and gets
augered up into the hopper (storage container).
Vera do you have any weed seeds in your mind? I know I do.
The air supply from the fan, and the sieves are all adjustable. If
there is too much wind, some of the wheat will blow out the back. If
there is not enough, some of the debris will end up in the hopper
along with the wheat. So the farmer, while getting set up for
harvest, stops periodically, looking on the ground behind the combine
to see how much wheat is ending up on the ground; and compares what
he sees there, with how "clean" the wheat in the hopper is.
Sometimes, this "balance" is such that the lighter, less-mature grains
of wheat simply cannot be accomodated, and there is no way to keep the
hopper clean, and also retain the light kernels. They must simply be
considered part of the "loss" of the harvest.
In ancient times once the ox had treaded the husks away from the straw,
on a windy day, the pile of wheat, chaff, husks would be repeatedly
tossed in the air with large "scoops." The wind would "drive the
chaff" away. (Ps1:4)
However, if the wind was strong enough, the lighter, immature wheat
would also blow away. Paul exhorts, "..no longer..be infants
(immature), tossed to and fro and carried about by every wind of
doctrine.." (Eph4:14)
We all have many infant ideas. Childish we are only by the ideas we keep.
You see what the wheat must endure before ending up in the granary?
Not only is it in peril while growing; from weeds, birds, drought,
etc. But the harvest process is also trying. Paul speaks of our works

Wherefore do the wicked live, become old, yea, are mighty in power? Their
seed is established in their sight with them, and their offspring before
their eyes. Their houses are safe from fear, neither is the rod of God upon
them. Their bull gendereth, and faileth not; their cow calveth, and casteth
not her calf. They send forth their little ones like a flock, and their
children dance. They take the timbrel and harp, and rejoice at the sound of
the organ. They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the
grave. Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the
knowledge of thy ways. What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? and
what profit should we have, if we pray unto him? Lo, their good is not in
their hand: the counsel of the wicked is far from me. How oft is the candle
of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God
distributeth sorrows in his anger. They are as stubble before the wind, and
as chaff that the storm carrieth away. God layeth up his iniquity for his
children: he rewardeth him, and he shall know it. His eyes shall see his
destruction, and he shall drink of the wrath of the Almighty. For what
pleasure hath he in his house after him, when the number of his months is
cut off in the midst? Shall any teach God knowledge? seeing he judgeth those
that are high.

Vera, my dear when reading scriptures look within thine own self and do an
honest
inventory of your own thoughts & deeds..... Ahem, Ahem "chaff."
Try this as an excercise. That very first sentence in the verse you
offered.......

Where do the wicked live?
Now take stock of your inventory of thoughts,ideas and actions.
Remember you are responsible for your thoughts and actions, not mine or
anyone elses.

Now that thought that just went through your mind....... Was it godly? Was
it wicked?
Are you pure in every thought and deed?...... I'm considering that it takes
times to really
study and do self-examination but if one is always thinking they & them are
other people
and not your own they's and them's then that could create a major problem
with other people..
I realize nobody is perfect and you know why? Cause you look at things like
"them"
as being about other people and not your own "thems." I'm not perfect
either. I have
some of them too...... We all do...... So please just consider it is your
duty to make changes
but only within your own thems and theys. Look forward to the day that
......"them and they's are
gone and you are "One" and perfect before God.
Just something to consider.

Love,
sensi

ps
And if you would like we could go over each sentence and see if we both have
some of those ways
and just discuss it if you would like to do that.

equipment has been developed to deal with the labor. The term
"combine" came
about when a single machine would "combine" the tasks of "cutting,
swathing, threshing, sifting" in one operation.
Does the mind have thousands of acres? Farmers?
When the crop is cut, it is funnelled into the "cylinder." This is a
device which spins at a very high speed, and contains "bars" which whiz
by a "beater bar" at very close range. The purpose is to "smash"
everything into tiny bits, and break the wheat kernel loose from the
husk of the head. This process is so "violent" that farmers who had
momentary lapses of carefulness have lost limbs, and sometimes their
lives, when their hand or foot has been caught in it. This
cylinder/bar combination is "adjusted" so as to separate the wheat
kernels from the chaff, without pulverizing the actual wheat kernels.
You have both! WE all do!
In ancient times the
function of the cylinder was done by oxen "treading" the grain.
(De25:4,1Cor9:9,1Ti5:18) Paul spoke of the "sufferings of Christ" like
being "pressed out of measure, above strength; so much so that we
despaired even of life." (2cor1:5-8)
Once past the cylinder, everything is processed through the shakers. A
huge fan blows, and the sieves shake. Straw and light chaff get blown
right out the top. Other smaller items like husks, contaminants, weed
seeds, and wheat process on down through several layers of sieves.
Eventually the lighter husks, weed seeds get blown out the
intermediate layers; and the wheat, being the heaviest, passes down
through all the layers to the bottom where, hopefully, it is by
itself...and gets
augered up into the hopper (storage container).
Vera do you have any weed seeds in your mind? I know I do.
The air supply from the fan, and the sieves are all adjustable. If
there is too much wind, some of the wheat will blow out the back. If
there is not enough, some of the debris will end up in the hopper
along with the wheat. So the farmer, while getting set up for
harvest, stops periodically, looking on the ground behind the combine
to see how much wheat is ending up on the ground; and compares what
he sees there, with how "clean" the wheat in the hopper is.
Sometimes, this "balance" is such that the lighter, less-mature grains
of wheat simply cannot be accomodated, and there is no way to keep the
hopper clean, and also retain the light kernels. They must simply be
considered part of the "loss" of the harvest.
In ancient times once the ox had treaded the husks away from the straw,
on a windy day, the pile of wheat, chaff, husks would be repeatedly
tossed in the air with large "scoops." The wind would "drive the
chaff" away. (Ps1:4)
However, if the wind was strong enough, the lighter, immature wheat
would also blow away. Paul exhorts, "..no longer..be infants
(immature), tossed to and fro and carried about by every wind of
doctrine.." (Eph4:14)
We all have many infant ideas. Childish we are only by the ideas we keep.
You see what the wheat must endure before ending up in the granary?
Not only is it in peril while growing; from weeds, birds, drought,
etc. But the harvest process is also trying. Paul speaks of our works
being "revealed. For the Day shall declare it." (1Cor3:13) If you
thought
that the Christian life is "sunshine and roses" and everything is
"happy as a lark" with a life of ease as you simply go to church to
"Praise the Lord" and get all "pumped up" ...think again!! EVERY KERNEL
of wheat that makes it into the granary goes through this same
process. Jesus said, "in this world you SHALL have tribulation."
(Jn16:33)
You have your own world and your own wheat and chaff to contend with.
Our wills must be broken through the cylinder as we learn, "not my
will but Yours be done." (Lk22:42) And all along the way we are blown,
shaken, dropped, shaken some more, blown on again, and fall again;
experiencing God's "discipline" of which "all" are partakers.
(Heb12:8) "..for whom the Lord loves He chastens, and He scourges
every son whom
He receives." (vs6)
However, this process is not a random willy-nilly thing. The Lord
"adjusts" that cylinder and those sieves "just right." (Heb12:10)
Typically, the hired hand/s do not make such critical adjustments. The
harvest and the "profit" for the year are too much at stake. While the
hired hand will drive the combine (angels Mt13:41),
Vera is a farmer too
the Farmer,
Himself,
(13:3,18,30,37,41) makes the adjustments, and crawls around
behind to see how much is escaping out the back. Or how many kernels
were crushed by the cylinder. The Farmer is "experienced" in these
matters. He "will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able"
(1Cor10:13) because He has experienced it "in all points just as we
are" (Heb4:15) as we follow in His example. (1Pt2:21-24)
He "chastens" us "for our profit, that we might be partakers of His
holiness." (Heb12:10) Truly, it is not always "joyous." But in the end
"it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who are
exercised by it..." (vs11) Thus, we can entrust our souls to our
"Shepherd and Overseer."(1Pt2:25)
What is chaff?
Chaff is made up of glumes, hulls, unthreshed heads and pods, short
straw, leaf material, and whole or cracked kernels or seeds from
cereal, oilseed and pulse crops.**** Weed seeds******* are also a
major component of chaff. Got any?
Just a good lesson I had to learn, I'm offering to you.

Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the
chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up
as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and
despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
(Isaiah 5:24 KJV)
<>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <>< <><
May I ask you what happens when you have a very strong desire that may be
considered ungodly?
What happens with that desire known as chaff? What if you have more than
one ungodly desire?
If just only one single idea that you may have is ungodly then therefore
this verse from Isaiah applies
to that idea that lives in your heart and mind. IF you have more than one
then you can apply the plural
as [they.]
Isaiah is one of very favorite books. It was one of the first
books that I learned to read knowing that I had work to do on me just as
Isaiah had work to do on
himself.
I'm not trying to be rude or disagreeable but just realistic. I hope you
understand

Re: Combines and Wheat (Mt13:47-50)
As we considered the separation of the weeds from the wheat, to be
burned, and see repeated the concept of "wailing and gnashing of
teeth" (Mt13:42,50); not a whole lot is said in this conjunction
about the
wheat, and it's "path" to the "granary." (vs30)

Oh yes, I agree and I will be the first to admit that I myself through self
examination
has sung many a tune about Life/God... out of chord, myown ignorance gets in
the way.
This I admit!
Not always am I in perfect harmony with God.
If we don't admit to having some foolishness and you say I have all
foolishness and you have none
then who is singing a song of fools? Perhaps your idea is foolish and you
would only then
be fooling yourself? Just a thought and not meant

that was lead to read and apply
rather than give it away as if your every thought and idea is
pure in your mind, heart and soul.

The scripture is so sacred that you cannot give it away. You can share....
but you also have to partake
of all that you share. It is im-polite when the Host offers you something
for your own need and then
you hand it under the table as if He must have been mistaken. It's for

You forget one very strong detail:

Vera didn't arrive here until *after* the incident in question with your
fellow Australian artist friend. I believe she arrived sometime in May or
even June of last year? And that thing with Woz happened much earlier than
that. . .Vera wasn't here and had no awareness of that situation until it
started coming up again through other people mentioning it. . .

heck, I wasn't even here for that. Woz was gone long before my lurking in
July of 2003 and actual post in August of 2003 - long gone.

and helpless to do anything about it except acknowledge that it has
happened!!!!!!!!

They are deceived.
BUT! The elect are not deceived!!!
THANK YOU JESUS, FOR SAVING SUCH AS I, THE CHIEF OF SINNERS!!!
Amen, and I, as well, chief among same.

Bob,

WHO are the elect, and by what measure do you judge against one whom you
consider NOT of the elect?

Second,

Why would you suggest that of someone who was chosen several years ago? (we
could go back to when I was seven, or back to when I was 19, whichever)

God bless,

Feather

PS. How'd the wall taste? *wink*

Mark,

You forget one very strong detail:

Don't confuse Mark with facts, Feather; just suck up to him like
always
and call him your brother in Christ. The man is on a highway to hell,
and
you folks don't have a clue....

They are deceived.

BUT! The elect are not deceived!!!
THANK YOU JESUS, FOR SAVING SUCH AS I, THE CHIEF OF SINNERS!!!

Abby

sensi:
I sincerely believe there are elect things and being in The Spirit.

One of those things is "Compassion."
Another is "Forgiveness"

These are the elect and they will not be deceived by you or anyone else.

Love,
sensi

In November 2003 David Matthieu posted a general request for help which
mentioned the name of my friend Woz who had been "moderated" on the
unmoderated ACC by Griz, Vera and their fundamentalist thugs. David
Matthieu spoke of the abuse and intimidation endured by my friend and fellow
CHRISTIAN ARTIST, Woz and many other Christians who were chased away from
ACC by Griz and Vera and their thugs.
I came here in December 2003 at which time I was intimidated, abused and
told I was not a Christian...nor did I have the Holy Spirit dwelling in
me. I suppose Griz knew that by the one e-mail I posted...*LOL*.

I as mostly treated as a non-entity...good Christians that they were.

Vera was not unkind or abusive to me.

In 2003-2004 a number of Christians
of varying Christian traditions helped destroy the Griz cult (of which Vera
was a mjor member) to bring this NG back to its original intent - A FREE
UNMODERATED PUBLIC FORUM FOR ALL CHRISTIANS!! Though we were not an
homogenous group of Christians (we had various Christian belief from a wide
cross-section of Christianity) it was Christian unity against Griz, Vera and
their bully building team not cultish fundamentalist uniformity like Griz
and Vera demanded of others.
Many in ACC blocked/plonked me upon Griz's "command", as though he were
Christ himself...poor lost lambs.

Rowland advised me against coming to ACC and told me it was a waste of my
time and talent. I ignored him. Gradually Rowland saw the benefit in
helping the Christians who had been abused by Griz and Vera and their thugs.
Rowland was joined later by Lawrence and Bradley (both from ARC where I had
been). After the destruction of the Griz cult Vera followed us to ARC.
I am very glad Rowland, Bradley, Lawrence are here...I also happy you
are here Mark...I don't care what the others say.
Post by Mark T
Various members of the Griz cult used aliases ... including Vera. I was
warned about this (and their other intimidating tactics) in advance by a
number of their victims. I posted (annonymously) the testimony of one of
their victims who came to me for help.
I think the Griz cult members doth protest too much...*LOL*!
Post by Mark T
All this may be verified by a simple Google search.
Anyone can discuss anything about Christian life on ACC (...and on any alt
newsgroup). It is NOT limited to ONLY fundamentalists, or ONLY evangelicals
or ONLY liberals. It is for ALL Christans. The point is then
to DISCUSS with these other Christians not to plonk them, chase them away or
tell lies and gossip about them.

That's all changed now. One can only conclude she's acting out towards
those she perceives as threatening her web site/position in the group/or
whatever, or anyone who is friendly with those people (which to "them"
means total support - one must join them in condemnation or be labelled
a heretic).

Has anyone admitted fault in that situation or asked for forgiveness?
All I've seen is denial and excuses and attacking those who "liberated"
the group (liberated with some actions I don't support though).

Oh no, if one asked for an apology, they/we were told by Griz to stop
playing the "victim"!

If all you've see are denials and excuses attacking us, then that's all
you're gonna see...things have not, nor are they gonna change.

NONE of them are ever going to admit what they have done are wrong.
EVER!!! That's why to this day I don't have a relationship with some of
them, nor will I ever have a relationship with some of them.

WHY? Because that's my choice. Some of them are not Christian and have
showed me so by their behavior. I choose to let them go their way and I
go mine, in peace.

Peace, Sioux

So am I ... even if they disagree with me sometimes. They are great bunch
of people whom I met ar ARC.

There are many good people posting here on these ngs and it is a shame to
have them constanmtly attacked for their variance of belief.

Rowland, Bradley, Lawrence sometimes disagree but we don't bite each other's
heads off ...yet ;-)

Let's keep it that way. Heh?
I like Rowland, Bradley, Lawrence and what I notice is they
don't use scriptures to demean others. What gets under my skin is the use
of scripture
to imply that you/I/others are less worthy than the poster who post how much
greater they are.
I think "understandings" may be greater or less and *all* people have both.
Share with me your understanding, mine may be different and I guarantee no
one can
say there is only one understanding of any person, place or thing. Be
willing to listen
and exchange ideas rather than head blows!
Just make sure your idea is worthy enough to include all people.
When you (person) come back with "We are God's people and you're a child of
the devil."
Then bite your tongue, you know not the possibility of a greater
understanding than the lesser one
you have gathered. The same can be said for those who have a greater
understanding of any
such things in life..
Share it anyway and when the head blows come...turn the other cheek. Not
for receiving blows
but eyeing the situation and with strong jaws, clench and refrain thy tongue
when entering
into a small/lesser understanding. Go easy.....go gentle, explain. If it's
not taken well..Oh, well.
Don't let people run over you but by that same token don't run over
them.
Goes back to that "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."




Wow, I could use this idea myself! lol.
I wonder where this idea came from?
Shaking my head.

Love,
sensi
