    'God'....

    'God' "Is" NATURE!? if so 'govern'd' by 'who'/'what'!? and/or perhaps; on what Plane of Existence!?

    God is nature, and artifice. God is governor, and the animating force to be governed.

    Think of the planes of existence as a vast casino, where God deals a perennial game of Texas Hold 'em. (not craps - God does not play dice with the universe.)
    God runs an honest table- but she does have a terribly dry sense of humour.

    yes... so dry it will pucker your mouth, for sure!!!

    Also, you will CERTAINLY get some vigorous response, perhaps some even.
    what I term: 'foaming at the mouth' dissertations.
    Anyway, yes; "SHE", few have heard of the feminine 'God-face'
    [Aspect]: 'Sophia'.
    Anyhow, why and where do you suppose the gender idea for this mystical
    and unknowable force originated? If it is what is suggested it is far beyond
    ANY gender consideration/s! :rolleyes:
    I think the Gnostics were closer! :cool:

    Are we not all part of nature...?
    God is nature and supernatural and created nature...

    Matthew 1:23 "behold, a virgin shall be with child, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." Isaiah 9:6 "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."

    Who is on first and who is on 2nd?
    Can the Monkey have a Banana? NO. I am hungry and
    I want the Banana!.
    BTL, that is APPROACHING where it is ALL at. But we humans, being the
    simple things we are on one hand, but wonderous, in our own right on the
    other, we know, but we [many of us] refuse to see; are children, still
    looking through a glass darkly!
    It is ALL very simple, NOT contained in a masssive amount of concoted words
    that do nothing but make one dizzy hearing them!
    Just be at Peace with yourself, your human companions, be kind, generous,
    loving and willing to lend a helpiong hand.
    We each, every minute of every hour of every day create our own reality.

    I believe in God. I'm a born again christian. I'll see you in Heaven someday. But you guys - this legalistic religious stuff being shoved down everyone's throats is really annoying. I attend church each week, but come on - even my pastor doesn't rub my face in the bible like a freaking moron! He teaches to us not preaches at us. That is absolutely no way to win people to "your side" and it certainly pushes them away. If I weren't a believer, I'd probably be throwing up right now.

    ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that EXISTS within A PLANE of EXISTENCE is NATURE... Nature of 'something' simply means it's part of the EXISTENCE as a WHOLE.

    Man being able to change his mind or perhaps make a CHOICE is the NATURE of FREE WILL, so no it dosnt Change the Mans Nature, as that IS the NATURE of Man.

    That's the idea: "to teach" and this is done through example; our acts and
    behavior!.

    And the behavior exhibited on this thread and similar threads here is rather disturbing being that both believers and non-believers are reading it. None of us is perfect. But, some of us seem to be sounding like they can't remember if Heaven is "up" or "down".

    If we're behaving like non-believers, why then would they ever see the need to change??? Bash each other, judge each other, cyber-slap each other. . . sounds like a drunken beach party to me! Why would anyone see that your life is any different from theirs if they are non-christian when we act in such a manner? And how do you expect them to see Jesus in you when you're acting like you've been posessed by satan?

    ahh yes, well, when a man 'changes' his mind, it is simply another CHOICE, a CONSIDERATION of CHOICE..an EVOLUTION of UNDERSTANDING ( which sometimes is a 'DE-EVOLUTION' hehe). Within every human,free or trapped within culture(whether physically or mentally trapped it makes no difference) lies the NATURE of FREE WILL..whether it is apparent or not is up to the individual to come to understanding with...and that is the beauty and sometimes the downfall (positve/negative!) of the NATURE of FREE WILL.

    Well I would have to say, it was a feeling of relief, an enhancement or perhaps evolution of understanding, an enhancement of emotional perception.
    a consistent sense beautiful peacefulness.

    so what if any help is available to man to choose wisely!?for is it just chance alone that determines his fate!?and the choice of the aware and the choice of the unaware!?how is the gap bridged !?how can the negative/positive ever consider it's opposite!?for if all easy/hard profit is acheived by the siding of 1 against the other,who would without cause go for the seeming defeat/nothing of the sacrifice/middle!?hehe!!.....just askin....
