or do you quote the bible word for word, as it seems to me a person who quotes the bible would be more worshipping the book, than the thoughts and feelings trying to be conveyed, by the book. i believe it is only through complete and full belief in IAM and what HIM stands for,that an understanding,may be achieved ,in order for your course in this time span, to be achieved

While it's true that you need a full and complete understanding of the great "I AM," we people are fallible. We tend to read our own ideas into the Bible, or use it to further our personal agendas or beliefs. Quoting the Bible verbatim may indicate a worship of it, but not quoting it in preference to our own words, may indicate a worship of ourselves.

agreed , useing the words to your own betterment . i have question for you.how do you feel about the cut and paste ability of this site?........when i offer a nugget of information it comes directly from my mind each and every time i respond, and it will be different for each discussion. and when i offer a discussion it will not be about things that are unimportant to our daily lives. who really cares what you had for lunch. give us the tuned thoughts of professionals throughout the world. let us pick your minds

I know what you mean and I agree. There is no reason to post unless you have something to say. Some people only post to make money, though and I won't judge them, as I don't know everyone's circumstances. For me, this is a place of a meeting of minds and I enjoy it in that context. You can copy or cut and paste after you've made 500 posts, I think it is.
