I don't get enough nutters . . . keep me entertained with their rantings.

However, this one did mail me because of my YouTube videos

Subject: Get the book: the bait of satan. Read it, you will retract those videos:
To whom it may concern,

We have seen your video...the sinners prayer.

Son, you don't understand His love letter to you.

In your sin, [if you receive judgement of sin, it comes from The Lord, and not us: for He judges all things, and has authority to relay in message. He will use anyone to speak, as the Spirit of The Living God descends upon man and speaks through them]. In essence: you have been used as a pawn to discourage the message of eternal life: that IS full of HOPE and the love gift of salvation in Him, the son of all mankind...Christ Jesus our Lord, and your best friend.

We are in the last days, and Christ Jesus is coming for His church, His bride. We that have...received The Son will be caught up, raptured be with God for all eternity.

There are power in your words...go and read in the book of proverbs again. Your words speak against God's will, and perfect plan for you, and for all the other souls that Jesus is awakening.

You are loved, you will loved, as God in deity is perfect love.

You have misunderstood His love gift, His words. He spoke to each individual, as He knew all of their thoughts and their hearts. Each word that Christ Jesus uttered...unto each individual is all according to The Father's design, and everything He did say was right, it's all just, for all...personally.

As an evangelist, a believer, and a blood-bought saint in Christ...we are asking you to turn around from being used by the principalities of darkness, of this world that is to pass away, and His harvest, in preparation: to bring the message of salvation enriched in His mercy, reconciliation, and His agape love.

Look to the fields: look to The Lord: look to the people, help...The One that knitted you together in your mother's womb and set you apart to...make a difference: help bring them in, help bring them home...son. Do it for Him...

You are Loved...on impact,

The Love...of Christ,

pjandkim4 (hopefully...we're kin)

In God's wisdom... He prepares each individual heart in steps and in His timing.

Thank you for your mail. It is obvious that you care deeply for my welfare and future, and I thank you for your concern.

However, it must be apparant if you have watched my videos that I find evidence for god deeply underwhelming and that I find Christianity to be woefully inadequate on many, many levels.

Christian theology is flawed, the god represented in the bible is reprehensible, the concept of eternal damnation is morally repugnant.

Happily I am at the point in my life where I have realised that there is almost no god, and very pobable that Jesus never even existed historically.

Thus, my videos on YouTube serve two purposes: they are cathartic and healing for me, as I "deprogram" myself from years and years of immersion in pointless mindset of guilt and fear. And secondly, they may also serve as a guide to others, for, like you, I am an evangelist - for reason, rationality and truth.

Thank you again for your concern, and time. I assure you that I do appreciate and understand what you feel and believe, having once been a "spirit-filled" believer. It is ironic, isn't it, that you hope we may be kin in the family of god, when in fact we are already kin in the wonderful family of humanity.

*Dear Stewart,

We do care about you, your well being, you spiritually, where you're at in order to try to re-late.

Look at Jesus' disciple John. When you see John, what are your thoughts...? Write them all down.

John's heart was ready to be filled with understanding, because his heart experienced the love of God. When we experience the love of Christ, and we read the scriptures: they start making sense because the heart is open and it's softened...good ground to receive...the truth. The Holy Spirit fills the believer with the understanding, and then the beliver becomes enriched.

If a heart is focused in judgement, the scriptures being read are preceived that way. BUT, if the heart is focused on Christ and has been His unconditional agape love for you and for everyone...His words will captivate you and they will present themselves in...freedom, freedom in Christ alone: in His understanding.

God loves you...and prayer helps.

Receive this prayer, tuck this into your heart:

May the Lord Jesus Christ touch your heart in such a way, that you will be profoundly moved, may He surround you in His warm embrace, and fill you with His unconditional love that He has for you personally, His mercy, and in grace. May understanding His words...draw you relationship with Him. May He empower you to move in all areas of your you keys of understanding...His wisdom. May The Lord give you eloquence to your tongue and increase your knowledge of His words seasoned with...the understanding of each word read. Finally, may the Lord bring you His peace and fill you, restore you with His love and joy in the name of Christ Jesus...our Lord, savior and King.

Come see...our blog. Check our blog out from time to time, this is our love you.

All God lead, no doubt.

The Love of Christ,

pfff! Didn't they read my reply at all? or did the fact that I responded just kick off a "Jesus loves you, come to our blog type response"?

Gah! Chris Bradley of Deeply Blasphemous and Kristi Collins of Pink Prozac have tagged me with this virulent little meme that is everywhere.

1. We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
2. Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

Why must I do this? Is it some kind of chainletter thing, I'll be cursed with bad luck if I post the rules after?

But my nonconformity never lasts more than a second, I love joining in, me.

So, 8 random facts/habits:
1. I have a wart on my thigh that is proving very difficult to kill. I've had it years. It's about the size of an M&M. I bought some of that liquid nitrogen/cryogenic stuff to freeze it. The blurb said that it will kill a wart in about 14 days, but "stubborn or mature warts" may need a second treatment. Well this bastard has now been zapped 3 times and whil he has shrunk greatly in size (much like me with the cabbage soup diet!) he is still hanging in there. I'm going to give him another blast tonight. It really hurts too when you push that sub-zero foam tip on.
2. I love food preparation. I love eating, but I love cooking a bit more. And a bit more than cooking I love mucking about with the raw ingredients. I have to repress a desire to fondle and stroke the fish at the fish counter at the supermarket. They're so pretty and shiny and tasty looking. I wish I could ask the butcher if I could spend a day behind the counter cutting and preparing roasts and joints and chops. All that lovely shiny red marbled meat. My mouth is watering as I type. At barbeques I nearly always test all the stuff raw, it's fascinating how the cooking process changes the flavour and texture of things. In order to enjoy a good pork and leek sausage I need to have first tried a bit of it raw to see the before and after.
3. I'm a great starter of projects and a terrible finisher.
4. I love pocket knives and I keep losing them.
5. If it wasn't for my wife's insisting that I make an effort, I would probably be happy with 1 pair of jeans and a few T-shirts. I wouldn't shave either.
6. I have a gap between 2 molars that always, ALWAYS needs flossing after eating. I go bananas if I'm stuck for any length of time sans floss.
7. While I display many of the cliched symptoms of having a Y-chromasome I have never been interested in cars. When people say things like "What do you think of the latest 3-series BMW?" I have no idea what they are talking about. If I tell people that I drive a Ford Escort (I don't it's just an example) They reply with "Is it the pre-1998 body or the more recent fastback?" And again, I am lost. When people ask me what car I drive I prefer to reply "A white one". Cars are for getting you from A to B.
8. I'm running a 10k race on July 14th. I haven't raced since moving to France, nearly 4 years. I'm out of shape, but hoping this race will kickstart the running habit again. I can then see how much faster I run the race in 2008!
