Anhelyna,

I'm picking up the photos today, but I don't own a scanner.

So can I still maintain that I'm a tall, willowy blonde, and that Alex is a Fabio lookalike? wink biggrin wink


Off-topically yours,

John 8:43-45
For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Matthew 21:41
They said unto Him, "He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, who shall render him the fruits in their seasons."


Mutual delight of sinners is, first of all, a wicked delight. A sinner seeks the sinner. Sinners delight in one another's corruption and for exambple in the underworld. They committ numerous crimes and killings, but they also have their parties telling about their robberies and the crimes they have committed, laugh about them, and rejoice in their wicked deeds. Anyone who does not rejoice with them has no place among them. They delight in each other's dirt.

This is what we have seen of their lives. These men, I don't believe, were pleasing to God having destroyed so many INNOCENT lives, and truly rejoicing in each others dirt so to speak, they had pleasure in their sin. They have gone against all of the Ten Commandments and as in John 8, it was a struggle against prinipalities of this world. To me, their hope of salvation maybe that they were born into that life and knew nothing else.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us sinners.

O' Most Holy Theotokos save us!

Rose

I remember that President Bush and Mr. Blair and most people in the world were rightly scandalized, offended, and very angry when the Arabic Channel showed the images of the American and British soldiers who had been captured or killed by Hussein's soldiers.

Now what can they say about these pictures and the way the Hussein clan bodies were publicly exposed in TV and pictures (after the "facial recostruction" and before)? Is this fine? Is this a Christian attitude?

The reason "we showed it in public because we wanted to show the people that they really died and it was not a rumour and to destroy doubts" is certainly not a valid one.

(then why didn't they show the explicit and unequivocal evidences about the weapons to show the people that they were a real threat against world security?)

The USA's international dictum appears to be "Do As I Say, Not As I Do".

Be very careful, fight very hard not to feel "happy", because if you do, you might end up in hell yourself.

To stop reffering to fellow human beings, how fallen they may be, as animals would be a good start...

Your advice is true. I accept it with humility.

As I stated originally, pray for me and for all Christians that we would always see all human life as precious...even those who spend their lives wantonly destroying life.
