Saw a group of Christians saying terrible things about Muslims. I wish they would have just peacefully agreed to disagree instead of insulting them, like a love thy neighbor kind of thing.

I really need to stop laughing at crude humor.....laughing is pretty much condoning it.

Agree.....you can disagree but do it respectfully.

TO add to that I had to get some medications for improving my married life... but the pills I was prescribed are crazy expensive and can't be part of insurances. I was so angry that day, I mean this is something I really need, this is not beer or alcohol or porn it is needed for my marriage, for our future and it is this expensive. I was so angry I lashed out on (my version of) god, I said he is wrong yelled a lot in my head...but then in a few minutes not even hours, my wife complained of a pain again (she had this pain for about a 3 years before where docs didn't even know the reason, she struggled a lot but it had subsided since almost the beginning of this year) no it was back. I was so scared, I immediately asked for forgiveness, I said sorry I lashed out, I apologized a lot (it is all happening in my head) and her pain went away in some time.

I don't know what to do, I feel trapped, there are so many places I am going to loose money in near future and they seem unavoidable. Why does this have to happen? and why am I not able to have good conversations with him anymore
Hi,

I like to think of the voice in my head as God also. I talk to him all the time asking him for strength and forgiveness. Money is always a tough subject for humans as it is how we can afford to eat and live. I am a firm believer that God gives us exactly what we need, not a little less or a little more. Whenever I get stuck and don't know how to communicate with God, I always turn to worship music as it guides my mind and soul in a positive place where God is listening to me sing to him. I am sorry for not talking in the "they" or "She" term but this is just my opinion. I wish you the best my friend and just know that your current situation does not dictate your outcome in the end. Blessings for you and your wife and your marriage (:

It's a struggle with loving your enemy. I know you have to be forgiving and not be hypocritical but some people have burned me in the past which makes it hard. I don't know if I can ever forgive some people. It also feels like you're making yourself a doormat. I have to fight through the bitterness in the journey to have Christ live in me.

Never could learn to drink that blood
And call it wine,
Never could learn to hold you, love,
And call you mine.

Apparently they don't know what's on the other side of a Black Hole. Even time behaves differently inside one.

I wonder if humans will ever get to experience what the Hindus call Brahman - the Ultimate reality and the cause of everything. Maybe after we die we're all united with it.

In some schools of thought - Advaita Vedanta for example - they believe we already are. They see the Atman as the subjective form of the objective Brahman - a continuity of substance between all things.

I haven't heard that before or I forgot, that's a good point. I have to remember that Christ is the strongest force for us and we are a part of His body and He feels for our suffering. Thanks Kevin.

He wants us fully surrendered to Him.

Will try my best. Its hard to beat worldly and primal thoughts. Still getting the hang of being a sheep in His flock.

I know some people don't celebrate Easter but I think its biblical. Not the name but the reason behind it .

Sometimes speaking the Truth is loving others.

If Calvinism is true, then I'm sure I'm not chosen.
