2018-07-23 13:53:10 UTC  

Great testimony from an ex New Ager

2018-07-23 14:21:12 UTC  

@TruthCanary thanks will have a look. Do you have Netflix? Are you aware of the Wild Wild Country documentary on the rajneeshees

2018-07-23 15:23:02 UTC  

@TruthCanary but people are already worshipping the new age messiah

2018-07-23 15:23:02 UTC  

Ditsem! @$P!KY\/!k!NG, you just advanced to level 4!

2018-07-23 15:54:11 UTC  

@Malcolm the Seceder do you believe in the theory of evolution?

2018-07-23 15:56:26 UTC  

@TruthCanary No. Way.

@Daniel van Straaten She's excellent. Have you read her Secret Thoughts?

2018-07-23 19:45:12 UTC

@Daniel van Straaten Hmmm I'm not a Libertarian though

2018-07-23 19:45:57 UTC  

Ditsem! @Malcolm the Seceder, you just advanced to level 7!

2018-07-23 19:46:39 UTC  

What are you a fan of?

2018-07-23 19:46:50 UTC  

How do you define libertarian?

2018-07-23 19:47:48 UTC  

Liberal on social issues like drugs, sex, alcohol, smoking, beards

2018-07-23 19:49:54 UTC  

Malcolm they are talking english again

2018-07-23 19:57:07 UTC  

@Malcolm the Seceder Willem Petzer describes himself as a Paleo Libertarian

I appreciate leaders like Rand and Ron Paul.

2018-07-23 19:58:28 UTC  

I would be closer to Pat Buchanan

2018-07-23 19:58:52 UTC  

But we're also talking in a religious context. There should be no libertarianism in religion

2018-07-23 19:59:00 UTC  

Except where the Bible gives it

2018-07-23 21:29:08 UTC  

@Daniel van Straaten What sort of things do you chat about on that forum?

2018-07-23 21:39:42 UTC  

Are you on FB? It is focused on the reformed (theological sense) view of politics.

2018-07-23 21:41:05 UTC  

The main guys are reformed baptist but some are presbyterian

2018-07-23 21:44:27 UTC  

They have a website called reformedlibertarian.com

2018-07-23 21:50:17 UTC  

I like Ayn Rand

2018-07-23 21:50:32 UTC  

She's a fire breather :)

2018-07-23 22:57:17 UTC  

Nope what's the thesis?

2018-07-23 22:59:56 UTC  

I like Ayn Rand more because she's so extreme and absolutist not so much her extreme libertarianism

Isaiah 40:22
It is he who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;
Psalm 104:5
He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved.

2018-07-24 06:56:54 UTC  

@Deejay from Earth Poetic speech. Common among the hebrews and kindred folk of their race. Or do you imagine that a snake actually spoke to Eve and that all of Adam kind was doomed to death because she ate a fruit?

@Deejay from Earth Psalms are poems. The prophets often spoke in prose to convey ideas. The Messiah taught in parables.

2018-07-24 07:10:25 UTC  

The descriptions of Earth in the Bible is literal. The spiritual teachings is metaphor and parables and whatnot. I have all the scientific proof for flat earth, you're welcome to post your arguments for discussion under <#469490581899575297>.

2018-07-24 07:11:44 UTC  

@Deejay from Earth All right then

2018-07-24 10:08:47 UTC  

It is not a profession of faith, which may indeed be insincere, but a confession of faith, which by definition is sincere, that indicates one is a Christian.
