I fear I have distressed you. And that was not my intention.

Will you forgive me?

 

Shar, in case you didn't see it in my post to Lou.

I apologize for being so presumptuous with your thread. It's just that it filled me with such enthusiasm at such positive possibilities.

A remorseful,

That is beautiful, and I can see why it means a lot to you. Of course, it being part of PHILippians doesn't hurt, I guess...8-)

Did I tell you my Bible has the Book of SHARippians? I'll quote some from it later.

I like this one a lot too, it contains a good general warning about "face value." Being pretty loose in interpreting it, to me it means anyone who presents an untrue face to the world (not limited to a 'shepherd'). Like one who manipulates situations, or plays dirty, or has a hidden agenda, or feeds on the powerless ones among us, or continues to do something that is obviously hurtful even while saying they only want to help....gee, there are thousands of examples, large and small.

To me, those are all forms of 'evil' to one degree or another. And I think it's cool that god took the time to warn us about it and warns us to "watch" what people do more than listen to their words.

And, of course, when applied to myself, to pay attention to what I DO and how it aligns with what I SAY.

> And, lest we forget, the golden rule. At least, I think this is the origin of one of them. There are golden rules out the wazoo, actually. Just about every religion has some expression of treating others the way you want to be treated.

FWIW, the FAQ links to a page with a number of them:

Re: Is it favorite New Testament quotes? Dinah

In reply to Is it favorite New Testament quotes?, posted by Dinah on July 16, 2002, at 3:20:16

I will let you in on a secret about the online search for Bible quotes. I had the one in mind about 'by your fruits you'll be known' and of course did not know what book/chapter/verse it was in, so...... went to...

www.blueletterbible.org where they have a search engine where you can enter verses, or keywords, and that's what I used. So, I had Matthew 7 open in a window and could refer to it while I wrote the posts.

It wasn't so much a striving for exact quotes and references as it was not wanting to take 3 verses from 2 different books, jumble them up into one verse, post it here and say "that's my favorite." I thought it would be good if it at least had some semblance to what was actually in the Bible.

8-D

(what I'm trying to say is don't worry about exactness, or if you do, the online help might be worth checking out.)

Shar,
After we were told by the Rider that a true shepherd will seek any of his flock that have gone astray, one asked the Rider what another characteristic of a true shepherd would be. The Rider turned to us and said. "Let no man deceive you. There is a true shepherd. And that true shepherd gives his life for his sheep." Then He turned again and said to us, "I am the good shepherd; and I know my sheep and I lay down my life for the sheep. And I will seek all those that are lost and no one can take them away from me."

And from one of my favorite chapters, James. I could probably call the entire book of James my favorite verse.

Just so the tongue is an insignificant organ, but it boasts great things. Look how small a spark sets so mighty a forest ablaze! The very rule of misrule the tongue establishes among our organs: it is the soiler of the whole body and the inflamer of the process of generation, being inflamed itself by Gehenna. Every species of beast and bird, reptile and marine creature, has been tamed by the human species. But the tongue no one can tame: it is an ungovernable evil, saturated with deadly poison. With it we bless the Lord our Father, and equally with it we curse men made in the image of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. This should not be, my brothers. Does a fountain gush fresh and brackish water from the same vent? Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? No more can salt water yield fresh. Who among you claims wisdom and sagacity? Let him display his accomplishments by worthy conduct, with the moderation of wisdom.

Tabitha,
In 1973 a was in an auto accident and had to have some surgery. The Dr. told me to take a shower before the surgery next morning.
While I was on the operating table, the Doctor said, "Did you take a shower this morning?"
I said, "Why, is there one missing?"
hohohehe

Tabitha,
You see, the car that I was in dropped off an overpass and fell 30 feet. I was having some minor surgery and while I was on the operating table, after the Dr. asked me if I took a shower this morning, the nurse then said to me," Are you allergic to anything?"
I said,"gravity"

Tabitha,
Then they put an I V in my arm to start the anesthesia. I noticed that there was a fly in the transparrent bag that had the solution in it. I said to the anesthesist, "What is that fly doing in my I V bag?" The anesthesist said to me, "Why it looks like he's doing the back-stroke."
Tabitha,are you any happier?

Then one of the surgeons looked at my chart and whispered to the nurses, " The chart says that this man is crazy." I heard him and said,"I want a second opinion." the doctor said to me, "OK, your ugly, too."
Tabitha, enough?

this is one of the reasons why I left a family of good fortune...there are many judges in the world ..but where I come from there is but one judge and but one plank of wood and everyone seems to wear it...there are many roads and my higher power sent his followers in many directions to spead the word ...some will be false and perform miricles but thats okey..because he said do NOT pull the weeds from the vine ..it is not our job..AMEN
