Sometimes I do. Sometimes I don't. Depends on the advice. Depends on the person/people advising.No really why won't you take help or advice when it is offered to you
Speak for yourself. I still have things I want to accomplish while I'm here. I'm in no hurry to be set free from this world.Anyway it's way past time we were all set free from this world
It doesn't offend anyone. You're just wrong.I have a better idea
Let us out
Because really I don't understand this notion that I or anyone else need to be thankful for supernatural death threats, telling them they are going to hell etc and all the associated anxiety that causes. I was perfectly happy before all that
Sorry if the above offends anyone before they jump in to tell me that it is somehow a good thing
What would actually be a good thing is returning me to the person I was before the above
It doesn't offend anyone. You're just wrong.
Your worldview is wrong.
If you trusted Jesus you would realize that everything you go through is for your good, God's glory *and* even for the good of others.
No one can really comodrt another in a particular situation unless they've walked the path themselves, SO be grateful that you go through hard things because they are tuning you up, will be used for God's glory or will help someone suffering as you are.
That is all nonsense if you don't trust Jesus.
I got hooked but the cool thing about vaping is that you can decrease the percentage of nicotine in the e juice you use over time. When I got to zero percent (and it still tasted just like a cigarette) I puffed a bit extra for a couple days, then threw the thing away because I was ready. It took quite some time to get to zero percent. I've been smoke free for I bet 10 years and vape free for over 5.Yeah vaping is a good way to stop smoking. Just have to be careful you don't get hooked on it.

Good post @CadyandZoeOne day there came a heavy rain storm and the town began to flood. The waters became so deep that it flowed like a giant river. A young Christian woman was able to climb up to the roof to await the Lord to rescue her. As the flood waters grew higher, up to the tops of the windows, a boat came by her house. A young man called out to her, "Lady, hurry and get into the boat." She waved him off. "No, that's okay", she said. "I am waiting for the Lord to save me."
The rain continued and now the flood waters were lapping at her feet. As she began to climb up to the ridgeline of the roof, a helicopter came by. They let down a basket and asked the lady to get into the basket. She waved them off also. "No, that's okay", she said. "I am waiting for the Lord to save me." A young man came down to her to encourage her to get into the basket. And suddenly she slipped and fell into the river and she drowned.
When she got to heaven she met the Lord, and she complained tersely, "Lord, where were you? I waited for you to save me and you never came." The Lord answered, "What do you mean? I sent a boat and you refused to get in. I sent a helicopter and you refused that also. You are here, young one because you refused to accept the help I sent."
Nah terrible post. If you can't post anything helpful or relevant then please do something else than acting high and mightyGood post @CadyandZoe
Various forms of that analogy have been around for a long time, and one has stayed with me since the first time I heard a preacher use it as an illustration of missing the move of God.
that no flesh should glory in His presence. (30) But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— (31) that, as it is written, "HE WHO GLORIES, LET HIM GLORY IN THE LORD."
- But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise,
- and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; (28)
- and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen,
- and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, (29)
They don't 'confuse'. They're simply no longer relevant, since those alleged 'death threats' have ceased.Yes! That is what I said! Oh dear, do my locutions confuse?
