  1. Dear Jordan, Thanks for being so kind. i have no authority, i am nobody, hence the lower case whenever i type 'i', otherwise i know English language rules and grammar pretty well, sometimes much better than native speakers! It is fine if you would like to take words at their superficial values and meanings, but i was taught differently. You can close your eyes and stop thinking, that's fine, bless your hearts. i have come to learn so much because of and from Jesus Christ in the very short time i have been blessed with His grace and converted to Christianity, not as a religion, but as the only way to salvation and peace, the best way of life. i simply shared what i found out with you here, if you don't like my findings, fine. i wonder what is so outrageous about this that you are all so upset, i am not fighting for Satan, if i say Satan does not exist, it doesn't mean that there is no evil in the world, but the source of evil is from people like me. i don't need help from a Satan to be bad, i have all the badness in the world within me. i am trying to fight it and be good, as the Lord is good. i'd like to become righteous, as the Father in Heaven is Righteous. i wish Jesus Christ would touch me and save me from this evil within me and purify my soul. i wish the same for everyone around the world. Bless your hearts, Totoo

  3. Dear Dave, When the first people who said the Earth is round and not the centre of the universe, what did the church do? i'm just another guy thinking out loud. As long as you don't want to hear, i won't tell! Thanks for your kindness and may the Lord bless your hearts, Totoo
  4. Greetings, Thank you for your kind replies and precious time. i will stop posting my thoughts on this site, since you do not like to hear my thoughts and are not willing to see how i worship the Lord and how much i adore his justice and righteousness. That's the end of me here. i pray for you and all of you to have an open mind so that you could truly see how truly good the Lord is and how much we are far from comprehending His Justice and Good. Cheers, bless your hearts, Totoo
  5. Dear friend, Timothy(?), Thanks so much for your kind time and reply. i'm glad to see that there are people who might come close and understand what i mean. Thank God for that. Language is a barrier, one cannot ever truly express one's thoughts and feelings without the risk of being misinterpreted and misunderstood. One of the miracles of the Holy Bible is that no matter who you be and no matter how much you know, you will be drawn closer to the Lord and admire Jesus Christ. i am still studying and i am trying to be a good learner. As someone who has been teaching for about 40 years, i should know that a good pupil or student is the one who comes back from their studies with good questions and loads of them, too. i am sorry if my questions may trouble some people, but better asked and put out than kept, answers will only come if one seeks them first. i would like to suggest that if, as i have hinted already, we take the idea that our very own will and temptations are the devils in us, and apply it anywhere in the holy text of the Good Book it might also make more sense. As an instance, when Jesus Christ prays: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. When the Lord says: 'in earth', do you think he is talking about the planet Earth? Of course, it may make sense, but it makes more sense if we take it as a literary figure of speech, then it might suggestively mean, 'me!' We know God created Adam out of clay, Earth! So we might want to have the will of God come true in our bodies and souls as it is with the Lord up in Heaven. Likewise, if we suppose that Devil is our unrighteousness and temptations to sin, it also makes sense in many cases that i have come to read, i am still studying, so i cannot bring all examples, but for instance we can recall the guy who lived in caves and our Lord Jesus Christ freed him of the 'legion' which went into the 'swine' and the swine fell off the cliff into the sea and died. Well, doesn't it make sense that our Lord blessed and graced this poor chap and forgave his sins and they vanished? Also his sins were seemingly as horrible as swine, see? Or in the other cases that he relieves people of their demons, the Lord is simply forgiving their sins, and he says so, too, and they are blessed and graced with His kindness and mercy. i cannot believe that the Lord God almighty could have ever created an angel who went astray, angels are not made to go bad, they have no choice, they are robot-like, no will, no A.I. nothing, but following the God's demands and orders. On the same hand, God would not create something and if it went bad for any reason, keep it! Recalling the Flood! He got rid of all the bad people and animals. Many such thoughts make me trust that if there is a devil or Satan, it's simply my own unrighteousness and bad faith. Bless your hearts, Thanks again for your time, Totoo
  6. Greetings, Jordan, Thank you so much for your kind care and time. i will study further, but you may have misunderstood me, or i may have not been able to express myself properly. i apologise. In any case, i understand that the Bible is not an easy book to read, although it might seem easy to you, it is certainly not that easy to me, and i am an English language and literature scholar and Shakespearean. Thanks again for your kind time and care, Wish you a blessed time, Totoo
  7. Dear Miss Daisy, Thanks for your kind reply, sorry for my late reply, I did not get a notification and I apologise. As for my level of belief, well, I totally respect and honour Jesus Christ, as He has always loved and taught love in its fullest sense of the word. I feel I am getting better, it is not easy, I have been otherwise all my life of 50+ years, I want to be honest with myself and I really want to fully believe in God the Father, I need to pray more, I suppose. Best wishes for you and your loved ones, Totoo
  8. Greetings It's more than a year now that I have converted to Christianity and ever since I have been reading and trying to understand the scriptures as best as I possibly could. I have posted many questions already and you have been more than kind to reply and guide me on. I recall I had a question about Matthew 4:1: Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And the problem for me was 'how could the Spirit of God lead the Lord anywhere 'to be tempted of the devil' unless they are working in harmony and cooperation!' Unfortunately I did not receive any satisfying replies on that but I kept studying and reading more and thinking and pondering about this issue. Now I have come to believe that God is all good and cannot possibly cooperate with any being as bad as the devil, so what is the answer to my question? Well, the devil is in me, I am the devil, I make choices which are wrong and unrighteous, there needs no outside being to push me to do anything, because if I do not want to commit anything, nothing can make me, except my own will. So I interpret the passage quoted above as: Then the Holy Spirit put Jesus Christ to the test of Righteousness in the wilderness of his mind! Your kind comments and criticisms are very welcome. I will God willing post more articles here, I have found a few resources that I am studying and I will try to share as much as I can with you and ask more questions which you will kindly be able to reply and guide me onwards. Bless your hearts, Totoo
  9. A prayer: I asked for strength that I might achieve, He made me weep that I might obey I asked for help that I might do greater things, I was given grace that I might do better things I asked for riches that I might be happy, I was given poverty that I might be wise I asked for power that I might have the praise of man, I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God I asked for all things that I might enjoy life, I was given life that I might enjoy all things I received nothing that I asked for, all that I hoped for, my prayer, was answered. Amin I need to add that this was taken from Dr McGee's speeches. Bless your hearts, Totoo
  10. It's a bit late, but better late than never: Merry Christmas, everyone, it's been one whole year since i've joined you kind and nice people. It's been a full year full of ups and downs every new convert might face. i've been struggling and trying and asking and searching for answers. Thanks Goodness and thanks to the Holy Spirit i've been able to find some replies and many of my questions have been answered. i'm still learning, though i have not been on the site very much, but i have been studying, reading the Bible, or listening to the Good Book. Bless your hearts and many many thanks again for your guidance and assistance. Totoo
  11. Dear Jerry, i am very happy for you, you are one of the chosen, maybe i am not, many are called, few are chosen!
  12. Greetings, It is very confusing, the whole Bible is very confusing, but then what can one expect when the Book is authored by the Lord. Bless your hearts, Totoo
  13. Dear Jim, Thank you so much for your kindness. Yes, i do not know how to pray, so i have been very happy to learn it from the Lord Himself. What you say seems very reasonable, i hope i will learn. i hope you will receive all you desire from the Lord. Bless your heart, Totoo
