Re: “Bible approved for AFB desk

Dear vietnamized, Thank you for your service to our country! My heart breaks for you having to go through that in your life. My heart also breaks that due to the words of one pastor, that you have turned your back on God. All men are human, but not all men are humane. All men are created by God but not all men are the sons of God, and I hope that you can see the difference some day. Please do not condemn yourself to future, eternal, torment by keeping a hard heart against God, for the mistakes of men. You are worth something. God thought so when he took his innocent, sinless son, and sacrificed him for you and the rest of us on the cross to pay our sin debt so you can have eternal life if you so chose to accept it. I cannot imagine the horror that you have been through, or are going through. I can tell you that if you read this bible, and see for yourself who God is, you will see the difference between him and all of us. If you can read it all, and hold your hate at bay while doing so, then you will see that although God gives us free will and at times we mess everything up, he is also the life giving, loving father that will give you peace. Real peace. Please see for yourself. You have suffered enough haven't you? May the one true God bless you sir! Thanks again from dad96. Many thanks also for all of our vietnam vets, who were sacrificed for nothing, whether that were able to come back to us alive, or not. There are real scars imposed on our living vietnam heroes as well. Let's not forget that. Thanks be to the families of our precious vets as well. There has been so much needless pain caused by so many things involving that war. My simple words cannot even scratch the surface I'm sure. Peace to all!

Re: “Bible approved for AFB desk

Although there may be similarities from one book to another, there is only ONE truth, thus one true book. Why I say this is there are also real differences. If there is real truth, ABSOLUTE truth which there is, then there can only be one true word of God which the bible claims to be. I am not going through all of the things that I believe to be false within the other religions, but I will say this... Jesus was beaten and died for our sins, past,present and future and on the third day after that he was raised from the dead and is in heaven as we sit here and talk. He did this for us, people who hated him then, now and in the future. He died for you if you so choose to accept it. It is not about religion, which anyone can distort, and turn into something bad. There have been terrible things done in the past in the name of Christianity, but those things are exactly NOT what Christianity is, or should be. This is about truth. This is about a LOVING God who deserves our love and respect. I am as far from perfect as anyone, but thanks be to the one true God who has forgiven me, and paid the ultimate price for me so that I can live one day with him. I am not trying to beat anyone over the head, just trying to let folks know that the bible is not the "hard faced rule book" that everyone thinks of. It is a loving guide book written by God ordained and God inspired men, to help people know the truth. I pray that you can see it some day. Please do not rate the bible on my, or others imperfections, as we are human like everyone else. Read the whole book and see for yourself. I will probably never be able to do it the justice that it deserves. Take care.

Re: “Bible approved for AFB desk

Glad to see common sense prevail for a change. It's time to be more active in getting this country back to a place where there is reverence and love for the one TRUE God and love for each other. There is a difference between not loving someone ( fill in whatever protected class you wish ) based on their belief, sexually, religiously etc. and accepting and celebrating it. There is a right and a wrong period. Whether people want to accept it or not. We need to be at a place to lovingly reject the fallacy that if it feels good at the moment than it must be ok to do it. What a childish, immature and senseless world we live in. I challenge the bible haters to actually read what they seem to hate so much. If you do truly read all of it in context and not pull individual texts out to twist the meaning to fit your hateful purpose, you will see that it is truly good. Anyone who is honest cannot deny that things are getting worse and worse in our country and the world in general. There is a logical reason for that. You know it as do I.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

I have plenty more to say about the supposed age and the cause of the formation of the earth ( that some scientists change at whim to fit their world view and try to make the puzzle pieces fit like they want them to ), the definition that you gave, as well as your religion that sickens and saddens me. I am however done going back and forth with you in this venue. We have gotten into a back and forth (that I started to try to help in some way) and even though it stems from the original story, I think we should carry on in private email if you still want to discuss this further. The people know are views, hopefully will side with truth but either way, it should not be turning into me vs you here. Respond with your email if you would like to have some more correspondence about this. I'll be happy to oblige. If not, then take care. Just remember, when judgment comes, and it could be now after your next heart beat or many, many years from now, but you have heard the truth and you will not be able to use that as an excuse as to why you did not accept his love and forgiveness and thus will live in eternal torment. I sincerely am sad for you.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

You are not one. Nor is any other human being. Do you recognize ultimate truth or is everything relative to you?

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Staci6, We are not, nor have we ever been animals. We were created in the image of God; fully what we are today biologically speaking. Call it what you will as far as intolerance or whatever. The point is, there is and absolute right and wrong as well as absolute truth and untruth whether you choose to "Tolerate" it or not. I am sorry that you have been convinced by the ignorance of Darwinism which happens to be the tool that has helped destroy what is good and decent in the world. I hope that some day you and others who have bought into that nonsense can read and accept the truth presented in the bible and learn what a loving and gracious God he is and the peace that comes from having a personal relationship with him. If you're honest with yourself, you know there is an empty spot within your soul and nothing on this earth will satisfy it. No material thing, money, possessions, sexual relations etc. We were created with this void that can only be filled with our loving creator. Once you're honest with yourself, in the quietness of your own thoughts, you will know what I'm saying about something always being missing in your life. I pray that you accept his love and forgiveness someday for your sake. I truly mean this when I say that I wish God's blessings for you and for the other people who have not realized this ultimate truth.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

It is correct that separation of church and state was meant to protect people from government enforced religion ( like England had so many years ago, and the reason a lot of people fled to this country ). Whether you admit it or not, you hold to one religious belief or another which controls your thought process. Even if your belief is in atheism or you claim to be agnostic, you are believing in something, which Yes, is a religion. People worship everything under the sun ( and sometimes the sun too ) unknowingly perhaps, but do it just the same. There is no getting away from it no matter how hard that you try. There is one TRUE GOD, The God of the holy bible, and everything and everyone else is a false god that you end up pushing onto others every day yourself. The god of tolerance and acceptance of anything and everything is just one example. Wake up folks, do you think this and other countries are getting better or worse? Why do you think that is? I'll tell you; it is because we are getting further away from the one true GOD. Maybe you folks who have a problem with the bible should read it instead of sitting there worshiping yourself. You don't even know what you are hating. You will die at some point as well. Where would you like to spend eternity? You might want to think about that and possibly take advice from the good book to accept the FREE, LOVING, gift of GOD, through the Lord Jesus Christ. He paid FULL price for YOUR sins; past, present and future by his death on the cross and resurrection from the dead and ascending back into heaven. It is historical fact folks. You cannot deny the life and times of Jesus and still be holding to the truth. Do not judge God or the bible exclusively on the imperfections of your Christian neighbor, coworker or such. We should be continually trying to be better and will be to some extent, but we are sinful and in need of a savior just as you are. The ONLY difference is that we have been given forgiveness from our sins, by being given the opportunity to accept the gift because Jesus so freely paid the price. Reading the bible and accepting this gift will change your life for the better. Truly read it and see. There is nothing bad in there. Would you give your life for the forgiveness of people who hated you like Jesus did ( that includes all of us at some point in our life and a lot of you right now)? Would you let your son or daughter be beaten and die for the people who hate you in order to pay the penalty of sin so that they may be forgiven? That is true love folks. How can you not love God after that? God did not come into the world to judge you, but to save you. Remember that.
