  1. Greetings Qa'im, I like the way you presented your views. asalaam, Clynn
  2. Wow, good question. I guess he'd have to be. :mellow: But I guess we won't know for sure until Christ actually comes. It is sad to think that he may be leading so many people astray.
  3. We were warned by Yshwe Himself; 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. I think what clinched it for me was why they would feel the need to have the camera's turned off. When things are on the up and up there is no reason for concealment... rather you would want to share eg. 'the good news'. ... also the thing about taking the passports. I see nothing wrong with starting a community like this... in fact I would like the same... but why change the teachings? Why claim to be Christ? I've also recently watched some programs that I find convincing, that to see the UFO's as they are being seen, is not to be unexpected as the veil between worlds is thinning. I can believe that these, what we are calling UFO's because we can not say what they are, are the angels and the demons that have always been with us, but mostly unseen. If you can wrap the mind around such things. It goes back to studies of ancient Egypt and the hieroglyphs. It is not a thing that I have come to believe suddenly, and I would never ask anyone to take my word, but to keep studying... keep seeking. For me it has been a tying together of many pieces of a puzzle over the last nine years or so, that I believe are being revealed to me a bit at a time as I am become able to perceive deeper into the things of God, and, I believe, as we are coming close to the end time tribulation.
  4. Greetings baqar, I follow Yshwe(known as Jesus). I see no better teaching, and no better hope. That is where I put my trust, and that is who I want to go to be with when my time comes. asalaam, CLynn
  5. Greetings PureEthics, Perhaps they only meant the one who posted the comment. asalaam, CLynn
  6. Greetings baqar, It is what I remember from a program I watched about the life of Siddartha... and after watching the program, I did further reading. But no, I have said many times about my memory, and this is what I recall, and what I took from all that I learned about Siddartha, and I was left with the impression that he believed that God was found within. Not saying I could not be wrong. You would have to research Siddartha I suppose. asalaam, CLynn :) Oh, I am sure you are correct. More and more Christians I know, are becoming Buddhists.
  7. Apostle's Creed I believe in God the Father, Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth: And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary: He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell: On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen. The Nicene Creed We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation, he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered died and was buried. On the third day he rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen. The Nicene Creed is merely an expanded version of the Apostle's Creed. An easy way to view the comparison is at this link: http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/credo.htm
  8. Tea

    Anybody ever have Rooibos?
  9. Greetings baqar, Good observances. Here, as with all religion, we must distinguish between 'Buddhism', and what Buddha taught. I'm fairly certain that the Buddha(Siddartha) taught that God is found within. Here is another thing to consider... the concept of reincarnation... What do you suppose Yshwe(Jesus) meant when He said, in my Father's house are many mansions? You see I find the concept of reaching higher levels(or planes of existence) entirely possible, and not incompatible with what Yshwe was saying. asalaam, CLynn
  10. Greetings Placid, Thank you for your cautions. The thing I bolded above is kinda what I was meaning to say. God's blessings to you, CLynn
  11. Tea

    hehehe - all things with balance. :) I try to drink decaffinated when I can, but I also limit my black tea consumption to one cup a day, balanced with an herbal or green tea in the evening. Two cups of tea per day... the rest of the time, water. :) [Oh, except for a morning glass of juice. :)]
  12. Greetings Baradar_, Yes, I believe man(or woman) comes closer to God when he is able to defeat the desires of the flesh. The desires of the flesh are a distraction from the purity of communion with God. I believe that the duties of a husband are a distraction from committed attention and devotion to God. It is not possible to give oneself fully to God, and at the same time fully to family duties. One or the other must give way to the other. A man devoted to God, while at once being good and Godly to his family, is also at the same time selfish and reserved from them, due to his time given to God. I think it is hard to divide the passions, so that neither one receives the fullness of devotion that they deserve, or one receives while the other is deprived of fullness. 19 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. (St. Paul, these were the things which Paul himself realized) man can not serve both God and mammon(the flesh, the things of the world - this is not an exact interpretation but it has come to be my understanding) 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (the words of Yshwe) 25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. 26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: 27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. (the words of St. Paul) 10 His disciples say unto Him(Yshwe), If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry. 11 But He said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given. 12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it. (from the book of Matthew, the words of Yshwe) and as St. Paul writes to the Corinthians: Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. [i believe this is where Muhammad gets some of his teachings from] 3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. 4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. 5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. [again, some of Muhammad's teaching] 6 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment. 7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. 8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they abide even as I. 9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn[with lust]. I believe these are the teachings from which the practices derived. I see the benefits of both scenarios, which is why I do not reject, or have a problem with both observances of faith. A man married may have better understanding of the trials of his flock... so while not as close to God, he is still able to be a good shepherd. I think we need both... those who remain close to God, to guide those who remain close to mankind. Salaam and blessings to you, CLynn
  13. Afghanistan

    Afghan policeman shoots two foreign journalists, one killedWhat was the point? What a shame.
  14. Greetings PeaceLoving, Not necessarily that, but perhaps that they found the child and the family did return with them and was educated in the ways of buddha. The piece that remains missing however, is that Yshwe was entirely knowledgeable in Judaism. they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. 47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers. 15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all. 16 And he came to Nazareth, ... and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. 17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 20 And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. 22 And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph's son? 15 And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? I have no problem entertaining the idea though, that Yshwe may have embodied the spirit of buddha... if buddha also embodied the spirit of God. Doesn't buddhism teach that God is found within? I feel there is still no better message given to mankind. :) Peace and blessings to you, CLynn Greetings shreek, All the others originate from the Catholic church and the Catholic (Apostles) creed. The Catholic church is the original church from which the others take their teaching. The others only decided to modify some of the teachings. Peace and blessings, CLynn I thought I'd add another note. I have not made my conclusions from watching this one video. This video simply fits in well with other things I have studied.
  15. So very disturbing. I say, all western living muslims should think carefully before giving money that may be funding these media and this horrific division and war, one with another... brother against brother.
