    #15 ...which means, you are related to someone who has sinned. Again, some societies punish relative 3 pedigrees up and down. Which somewhere in the Corinthians it states you get to go to Satan, the advisory, and spend some time in slavery. Which is why, I suppose, one of the reasons why we can't end slavery today. Besides the fact it is a revenue pipeline and employs lots of people world wide. So, it's a cycle. People wont stop committing crimes or being imprisoned for thinking/speaking off the "proverbial" plantation [political dissidents] and it doesn't matter which dogma camp because they are all intertwined.

    #15 Everlasting life in physical only occurs if someone has a child. Which is the original meaning of marriage. We fell off course when we deviated and made marriage a civil contract between the two parents and not the parents and the offspring. Regardless, 'til death we all do part from this physical realm. Even if we divorce our partners or distance ourselves from our relatives does not mean we are not married to them via DNA or the influence they had on us.

    The risk in sinning is obvious. Self destructing via medicating is something you opt into or something you can be subjected to. Which is why the US Constitution has a clause the is breached called Corruption of Blood. Also,. If you choose not be heterosexual or if you choose to castrate yourself or abort your future selves is you risk ending your line.

    The risk in being a saint is that in some places they do Corruption of Blood in other forms by arresting and imprisoning your relatives 3 pedigrees up or down. They are gearing up for that in the US, we know this by the hearings held regarding the banking of DNA and the testimony given about "3 pedigrees up or down".

    As far as the scripture and the VERY WORD OF GOD, it is very specific about what that word of God is. It is not the scripture. So read again until you find it.

    The trouble with picking and choosing is that people will always try to manipulate old army field manuals without considering their space in time. The Bible states that it was built on precepts upon precepts which is why they are having issues getting the masses to trust them.

    Incidentally, Deut. 24/7 is pretty clear about slavery and everyone who does not want to be slave calls themselves Israelite and everyone who wants to be a master calls themselves Israelite. Yet, do we really have a way to prove who is? Well, yes, if you go by the Bible, it states that all blood was mixed in 500BC.

    Original sin refers to the fact that we are all related somewhere in our ancestry

    Since you want to mix Scripture with street vernacular @Timothy Welsh, my point is, DUDE, that both salvation and original sin began as a leap of faith, meaning they're no different in that respect. To say that eternal life is a "free gift" is a leap of faith. Outside of reciting scripture, can you prove it is, in fact, FREE or even real? Do you have proof of that? If you can't back it up without scripture, that's theoretical not proof. Saying my theology is appalling suggests that what I believe is appalling. In terms of the original premise of my article, since all you're doing is reciting scripture, maybe you don't believe in writing what doesn't exist. If you don't, why criticize those who do? The Bible was something very new at one point. Doesn't that prove my point?#13
    Timothy welch
    02/05/2017 #13 Timothy welch
    Interesting perspective but the theology is appalling... you wrote Salvation is no different than original sin. Uhhh Yes it is Salvation is of the Lord. Just read the bible. you then state ' you can't be a saint or sinner without risking something." you cannot mix works with grace. Romans 6:23 says eternal life is a free gift so sinners risk nothing Jesus risked it all by dying on the cross. Saints pursue Christ in discipleship to receive rewards in the afterlife. 1 Cor 3 :13-15 brings this out in the context. If you cannot back it up with scripture dude dont put in print.

    Yes, Stanwyck did in a western series called The Big Valley. I remember that, but don't remember her in The Thorn Birds oo The Colby's. Great variety to her work and, supposedly, a very nice person (not common when you think of actresses like Bette Davis, Joan Crawford and Olivia de Havilland, her contemporaries).

    #18 @Phillip Hubbell ahh...the mystery of the tryptych [sic]; I think that Francis Bacon (not the the natural philosopher --although he too may have made a similar metaphysical observation regarding the empirical/scientific method... but the post WWI artist --"Lost Generation Painter") said something along those lines --it may have been a different rationale; but it had to do with the fact that some of them started out as "stand alone" works...but then --once finished ...they couldn't stay that way...the oft repeated theme of philosophers and writers...a "three car train" in which yesterday, today, and tomorrow are sort of "in the same room" and the the whole thing is moving as a single unit...I found an interesting link about him at the Tate Gallery/Museum: http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artists/francis-bacon-682

    #17 @Gerald Hecht a funny thing...since I started out to write a single book, the titles ended up being backwards from how I would have done it had I wrote all of them before giving them titles. Standing Still should have been the first one and God's Motive the last one. Infinity Squared would still be in the middle but that's the nature of trilogies.

    Having created a religion myself, I commiserate with the effort to describe the death of the protagonist. Since my guy dies near the beginning and finds himself in the afterlife, I believe I came up with a pretty good process for getting from here to there. It even lent itself from naming book 3 “Standing Still.” Good luck.

    I think that the reason the Abrahamic religions have so many...was just to "cover all possible ways of messing up"...if you start at Adam...by the time you get to Jacob's 12 kids; you already have a crowded stage, a shipwrecked ark, pillars of salt, enraged offspring of Esau...3 or 4 enslavements...and Moses is still just an infant abandoned by his mom --a lowly refugee/immigrant "dreamer" --in a picnic basket...in a state of complete da' nile.

    I think your main characters should, sit face to face inside a long steel tube and read the Conmysticism bible (or brochure) to each other. The natural vibrating frequencies of their voices in the tube will cause their eyes to bulge their noses to bleed and, eventually, their heads to explode. It will be messy but effective. All you need is a real pithy Conmystical for them to go out on. It also has the advantage of working on the audio and visual levels. Talk about surreal.

    Thanks for this inspirational buzz for writers and potential authors, Paul. I commend you on setting high goals. I always advise people to think big in setting their goals. It's better to aim high and miss than aim low and hit IMHO. Everyone should remember that becoming a best-selling author, while challenging, is never impossible.
    Just recall JK Rowling and a long-list of other one-time "starving writers" who ultimately struck gold. It doesn't always happen overnight, but perseverance can pay big dividends. Good luck to all!

    @Pascal Derrien, I'm glad you are writing about it. I think (well I'm learning) to face our demons, fears etc... are part of the healing process. You have a way of writing where you don't sound like the victim (even though that would not matter to me) because you WERE a victim and I feel your pain in your writing. My husband will kill me for saying this but he was abused severely growing up and no, you don't get past it. I think his way of dealing with it was to try and block it. He's a type A, a workaholic and over the past 3-4 years he has finally been able to show more emotion around me and share feelings.. he will never be able to share like some men do. My mothers illness and death changed him over time. He told me she was the only mom he ever had. He said she took him under her wing when he was just a teenager and always treated him like a son. His mom is still alive but they aren't close. I know he loves her but not in the same way many men would love their moms. Thanks for sharing this and I'm sorry I went on about my husband.

    Sjoe - how do you do that - stop me dead in my tracks!! I have lived on autopilot deliberately and intentionally to avoid confronting things and the self. It is easy to do. Or is it easier to do? I did stick my head out once and the backlash made me lock that box and here you are 20 odd years later. Do I want to think or do i just keep the box locked or maybe for me my stuff belongs in the box. Lurve your way with words!

    I want to explore it more @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, just not at the moment. These stories are written so I don't forget the novel I would love to write, following the lives of interesting characters. If only my current published books would go viral and sell, then I could afford to write full time. That's when all the stories will get finished.

    Day 2 - PeterHere is the second part of my story 52 Days, which follows the disciples for the 52 days, from the death of Jesus to Pentecost. If you haven't read "Day 1 - Mary Magdalene" yet, I'd encourage you to do that before continuing. I hope you enjoy this...

    I'll have another look at this chapter, @Dean Owen. I'm always open for improvement. As for a more detailed look at the Last Supper, it is coming in a future chapter. At this point in the story the focus is on the raw emotions like grief, regret and doubt. As time moves on, I will be using another disciple to recall the Last Supper (which is a large and important part) and relate it to Scripture, tradition and the events occurring. #2

    26/01/2017 #2 Dean Owen
    Wanting to be critical here as I think this project is seriously amazing and Part 1 was absolutely brilliant. Part 2 is good but perhaps needs a little work. I feel the Last Supper could be given a little more detail given it's significance, but then again I suspect you will be revisiting the Last Supper through the eyes of another disciple in a later episode. I feel I am watching a literary masterpiece unfold. Contemporary, but accurate and well researched.

    Just received my book, Riding Shotgun in the mail from @Don 🐝 Kerr last weekend and I must say, his book is like a bible for male caregivers. This book is also a very moving and inspiring story. A journey, so to speak... about caring for his wife who had cancer. I highly recommend Don's book! Thank you Don, my husband is reading this too. Lisa 🐝 Gallagher

    Brain vs pure heart, darkness of the present hmm....Just dive deeper, the present will be darker. The heart will give courage, the brain will give ideas.
    Something so normal and everyday during the times of struggle, something that could have been stale but isn't, is it a self description?
    Im not a publisher or an accomplished writer but i do know when things dont fade away by the next page.

    Wow wow! 👏👏👏👏👏 Beautiful, perfect, congratulations@ Sushmita Thakare jain

    Lá ela estava perto de sua janela na escuridão de seu presente olhando para o céu. No fundo, havia uma batalha contínua entre seu coração e seu cérebro.

    Seu cérebro a fez perceber o quanto ela estava cansada de toda a luta que ela tinha atravessado nos anos anteriores e agora deve desistir e fugir do que ela está perseguindo, enquanto seu coração puro sabia o que ela realmente precisava, que era tomar um profundo Respiração se compor e depois voltar a sua força total e começar a partir de onde ela tinha deixado.

    O perigo dentro dela a fez chorar, ela se perguntou por que aconteceu desta forma, por que ela não tinha ajuda e mãos de apoio? Por que a vida era uma jornada difícil cheia de lutas?

    O que estava errado, havia algo de errado no que ela estava fazendo ou era uma viagem que ela precisava para viajar sozinha?

    Naquela noite ela não dormiu, como ela poderia, sua paciência foi testada ela estava sentindo a dor eo medo do fracasso engolindo ela assim que ela percebeu que ela tomou um pouco de controle e começou a pensar em tudo.

    Mesmo depois de horas de soluços ela teve a faísca, a faísca de trazer seu sonho à realidade para executar a visão que ela viu.

    Ela sabia que poderia estar cansada, mas tinha forças para lutar contra as probabilidades, ela percebeu que esta noite ela experimentou como se sentia quando você desistiu e que não era o que ela estava procurando, não era pacífica nem estava se sentindo melhor do que quando Ela estava lutando.

    Foi então quando ela percebeu que ela realmente queria era experimentar como se sente eo que acontece se não há desistir. Por esse tempo seu coração estava regozijando-se com sua vitória.

    Pode ser uma noite cheia de terror, mas como o sol enviou os primeiros raios de luz alguém estava fresco como uma margarida e de volta para trabalhar em seus sonhos.

    Veey nice Sushmita! It is important to have the sense to sense the engulfing fear of failure before it is too late and take control at that moment. Both despair and hope are the workings of our mind. Courage and Intent are a heart thing. But what thought sparked that hope in the dead of night? What caused that leap of faith? :)

    @Lisa Vunk you speak truth in your post. The world is ours for the making. Unconditional love is a level of love that warrants a spirituality we haven't seen for some time. This would be the selfless act of love. Thanks for your post, and i agree with your final statements, one person at a time we can change the definition of the governed.

    Where there's unwavering truth, you'll always see triumph sooner or later. By the way, excellent, thought-provoking post. Here, I wish to post one of my poems:

    Wrongs of Mankind

    O, this wide erroneous world

    drenched by mankind’s rude behavior

    Who’s qualified best to publish truth

    or cares sadly for the miserable happenings?

    Now, evil partitioned in countless records

    which in unity battles the simple truth.

    Yet, how man so arrogant and foolish

    that reads not the damnation of wrongs.
