Re: WHEN...WHILE INCOMING IS RAINING DOWN??
Greetings, WHY......I've been following your postings and have become interested in your remarks about things in general...This last one where you commented on your religious upbringing...sounds very much like my own...I pray by myself...if asked to give a blessing on the meal, I do so...if requested to address remarks at someone's funeral, I do that...My wife of 56 years is a fervent Mormon and I've sat thru many of the traveling missionaries deliverys on whats and whys and their personal dedication to their beliefs..I certainly won't slight them on their beliefs. Over the years, and my being a Christian, I've questioned over and over about the 'attonement'....Never have received any feeling of understanding or commitment to believing the necessity for it. Of course, all these things around us didn't happen by accident...some supreme being, not to be of our complete understanding, caused them to happen...that being to me is God...I think of us as being a sprit, dweeling in this earthly body that is like a grand temple at the begining of our lives...over the years that temple ages and decays and finally falls away...our spirt having departed and gone elsewhere, perhaps to dweel in some significant level of exhaultation as a sprit...maybe with the Master Builder of it All...God of us all.....
