Man Can't Take it Anymore.

We women sure have reputations
Even in the bird world. lol

Just don't get us started.

I guess this male got out of his one item thinking box. lol

This is an interesting lizard I never saw before and it's great for the garden cause it eats slugs.

A lady goes to the bar on a cruise ship and orders a Scotch with two drops of water. As the bartender gives her the drink she says, "I'm on this cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday and it's today."

The bartender says, "Well, since it's your birthday, I'll buy you a drink. In fact, this one is on me."
As the woman finishes her drink, the woman to her right says, "I would like to buy you a drink, too."

The old woman says, "Thank you. Bartender, I want a Scotch with two drops of water."

"Coming up," says the bartender.

As she finishes that drink, the man to her left says, "I would like to buy you one, too."

The old woman says, "Thank you. Bartender, I want another Scotch with two drops of water."

"Coming right up," the bartender says. As he gives her the drink, he says, "Ma'am, I'm dying of curiosity. Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?"

The old woman replies, "Sonny, when you're my age, you've learned how to hold your liquor. Holding your water, however, is a whole other issue."

The Gospel of St Thomas is rejected by the Church.
The gospel was found in 1945 in Nag Hammadi , Egypt
and they are not sure who wrote it.

The complete text has been dated to about 340 AD, while some of the Greek fragments have been dated as far back as 140 AD.

The Gospel of St. Thomas declares that the Kingdom of God exists upon the earth today if people just open their eyes. There is "divine light" within all of us, which allows us to see the Kingdom of God in our physical surroundings. The Image of God at the beginning of creation (Genesis 1) still exists today. We can assume that Image still, which is different than the image of fallen man (Adam) in Genesis 2. The Gospel of St. Thomas reveals that mankind can and should restore their identities to the image of God now, and see the Kingdom of God on earth now. This text treats the first two chapters of Genesis in a non-traditional way. It holds that there were two separate creations of mankind -- the first was perfect and the second was flawed. Rather than wait for a future end-time Kingdom to come, the writer of this book exhorts people to return to the perfect Kingdom conditions of Genesis 1 now.

If this gospel is true then it blows away all justification of buildings, wood,and men of God.

It cuts through everything and makes religion just between individual man and God.

and this is as it should be.

Interesting isn't it? :)

Better is Possible said...

My faith is most solid when I remember it's between God and me. Sadly, people could have destroyed my faith/beliefs had I let them. Scripture tells us that there is only one mediator between God and Man.....and that is Christ Jesus.
Blessing to you Lady!

Gattina - Birds are funny.I had a nesting female who would get frustrated with her make. He didn't know what to do and behaved like a jack ass until she pecked him on the head. lol

Better is possible. = I have not gone to church in such a long time but I keep my faith within me.
It's as strong as ever.especially today when I feel people esp kids, could use some
because many are lost without it. It leaves a void inside. The good books stories kinda give you the missing pieces.

God is a triad - the Father the Son and the Holy Ghost.
