Great read....

Packy (Short Story) - 11/6/2008 1:37:34 PM
Such a wonderful, captivating story! What a miracle of grace God provided in your family! thank you so much for sharing in this way. Would you believe I have a brother Pat(rick) who is with the Lord, and when we as kids made up silly names for each other, he was Packy Ruben. I also read your poem SIN and your article on gay marriage. Great work, and a great witness you are on the Den. Sincerely, Connie

Packy (Short Story) - 5/23/2008 8:13:47 AM
well said

Packy (Short Story) - 9/21/2007 8:40:56 AM
I know Packy, too, and I knew Bro. Pat, too...and it's all true. lol Bro. Pat truly was a walking miracle in another aspect, also....pretty much a shy, not-very-talkative guy outside the pulpit; an anointed, articulate (with a few memorable exceptions...private joke for Eddie, lol) fireball behind it. I can't remember ever reading this whole story before, Eddie...glad I did this time. Reminded me of how much I love you and LJ.

"scrambled eggs." That story brought tears to my eyes. One line in particular stood out: *How quickly she had permanently solved a very temporary problem.* How do we ever know for sure which problems are temporary and which ones are permanent? Joan

Packy (Short Story) - 2/17/2004 7:43:51 AM
Hi, Eddie! Quite a touching story you've written. Isn't it wonderful and amazing how we can use the experiences of our lives to fuel the imagination and inspire others! I can see why you're a pastor. Thanks for the heart-warming tale. Steve Fisher

A very touching story. As a former parish priest, I have been in that situation on more than one occasion and felt the same jumble of emotions Pastor Bourgeois did. I sense a kindred spirit in Pastor Thompson, though we've never met.

This story broke my heart and then offered warm, loving healing. The gift of unspoken love between you and Packy and your fierce desire to protect each other during the bad times comes through clearly. Even your understated words shout silently the truth of brotherhood. Thank you for sharing that in such a touching way, you write beautifully. Carol

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 4/11/2013 10:13:58 AM
Your argument is flawed in many ways. LGBTs do not want “extra” rights; they want the equal right to marry the person they love, and the 1,100 legal benefits that come with marriage. While it is true LGBTs cannot procreate, it is equally true that infertile and older heterosexual couples cannot procreate, yet we do not deny them the right to marry. It therefore seems to me that love is the true basis for marriage, not procreation. And love is a gift from God. He (or she) encourages it; he does not condemn or forbid it. God also created us all, yes, even our sexual orientations. Judge his judgment at your own risk! Better to honor God by honoring love, and by showing your acceptance toward others with tolerance and understanding. There is not too much, rather, too little love in this world. Love is surely the bond that holds society together. Distrust, hate, greed, tyranny, jealousy, and a few other flaws pull us apart. We dishonor God when we harbor and resort to our flaws; we honor ourselves and our God with love for all.

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 10/11/2011 9:14:04 AM
Powerful article! I agree whole-heartedly and I believe that it is a sacred union between man and woman which God ordains, he also wanted us to be fruitful and multiply. That can not be done if it is of the same sex. Awesome argument.

John Gonzales, what you are saying is absolute rubbish, you are encouraging our children to oppose diversity and anything outside what they have been taught with disdain and scorn. Humanity thrives on diversity, if all people held the exact same oppinions, then humanity would be nothing more than unthinking drones, set in their belikefs with no purpose in being there. It would be a bland unfulfilling life. I also must ask one thing, what damage has homosexuality actually done, name me onesittuation where it has had horrible consuquences.

Biblical Anwers To Common Arguments Against Creation (Article) - 3/24/2011 10:57:50 PM
Hello, while i do not believe in creationism, this is not ann attack on youre beliefs, it is simply a quaestion that i have been wondering about for a long time conserning the basis of christianity. The bible was written by those who followed jesus christ, correct. if this is the case then you have placed all the arguments you have written firmly in the hands of one man. you msy srgue that he is the son of god but i just have to ask, sorry about any disrespect that might be interpreted with the following: How do you know that he wasnt simply a lunatic or a revelutionary trying to turn people to his point of view with promises of a less cruel god than those of the romans? I mean, the only argument i think of is that god would have struck him down, but then, why hasnt the same happened to diciples of other religions. This is just honest curiosity, please do not get angry.

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 2/2/2011 7:03:41 PM
I will offer a non-US perspective, as the points of view expressed have generally (almost exlusively from what I have read) been focussed on the laws and sensibilities there. We do have some similarities with the US, in regards to separation of Church and State, though our legal system owes more to the UK than the US. In Australia, we have also had many debates (arguments) on the proposal of same sex marriage. Many of the arguments against gay marriage come back to religion. Because the Bible/Torah/Qu'ran state that homosexuality is an abomination (at least there's one thing they can all agree on), then it must be so. Being part of a largely secular society means that if we were to follow all of the strictures of whichever religious text happened to be supported by the majority, then there would be very few who would not be breaking the law in one way or another. Addressing a number of the claims made in this article. First, that gay and lesbian people have equal rights. They do, if they choose to ignore their preferences and marry someone of the opposite sex. If however, they want to acknowledge that their partnership is more than a couple of people living together, they do not have that right. They do not have the right to a share of their partners estate in the event of a death. They do not have the right to intervene in their partners affairs should that partner become incapable of managing them themselves. They do not have the right to claim against their partner if their relationship should fail, leaving one of them financially disadvantaged, or having to support children. The final portion of the argument, that it "will not stop there", is as poor an argument as can be made. Stating that just because x, then y will happen next (eg. "just because the Democrats are in power, now they'll destroy America with their lefty, pinko policies") is frankly nothing more than scare tactics. Nowhere has anyone advocating same sex marriage ever advocated polygamy, incest or underage marriage. Claiming that there is a hidden agenda, but it's so hidden that the people advocating same sex marriage aren't even aware of it is patently ludicrous. On the second point, that it is not traditional. Traditions change. It's traditional in some countries following Sharia law that a woman who has had sex outside of marriage (even if she is raped) must be stoned to death. It is also not traditional to have divorce (Henry VIII had to create a whole new religion in order to do that), but it is now so commonplace that I am sure many Catholic couples avail themselves of the practice. According to tradition, contraception should never be used. But even the Catholic Church can change it's stance on traditional views in the face of new information and changing societal values. The final point again is not about how the law views the relationship. but how religion views the relationship. In most countries, including the US and Australia, it is not illegal to have a homosexual relationship. The "traditional" marriage may be a sacred union ordained by God, but marriage is no longer restricted to those who enter it through a religious institution. I was married in a civil ceremony. My relationship is officially recognised under my country's laws. The advocates of same sex marriage are not asking to be married in Church. They are asking for the same sort of ceremony I had, one that will be recognised under the laws (not religions) of their country. For a country, founded on the rights of the individual, and set up by people fleeing from religious intolerance, I find it surprising that it is unprepared to acknowledge the rights of these individuals, and will target them with their own religious intolerance. I'd suggest a re-read of Animal Farm.

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 6/30/2010 10:38:59 PM
Maybe God created a perfectly harmonious system and within that system he knew people might over-populate the world he created an thus destroy it. So he added to his masterplan the process of homosexuality, whereby couples pair together so that they can truely love (which is the purpose of our existence) but do not contibute to the rapid growth of our population. In fact, he has also given rise to the opportunity for healthy couples to adopt abandoned children. Its morals like these that support the continuation of our existance because the child left starving in the street or improperly nutured in the orphange didn't grow up, or grew up with a gun in his or her hand. So ask yourself, what threat does gay marriage pose against your personal existance? Will you continue to reproduce? How can it actually hold our existance back? If it seems to occur naturally and not by choice, which 99% of homosexuals claim, is it possible it is part of our perfectly harmonious natural existence created perfectly by God who does in fact have a master plan trying to effectively work?

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 3/11/2010 2:56:22 PM
The unfortunate result of proposing an argument based upon a belief system is that the argument stands or fall upon the veracity of that belief system. It is therefore a dangerous manouvre. "marriage is a sacred union ordained by God, and nothing man does can ever really change that". Suppose the 'sitter on the fence' replies, 'Fair enough, but I am an atheist, I do not accept the intellectual premise of a deity, so why have you based your whole argument upon something I cannot believe?' There are better arguments, most of the species of this world display some form of homosexual activity as seen in common seals and even post adolescent lions. Critically the overwhelming status of all species is an heterosexual one and the homosexual element, as heterosexual mating opportunities are presented, tend to revert to normality. The crux of this being that no species makes provision for its "gay" members, the whole evolutionary structure depends upon propagation of all species (hermaphrodites etc excluded) via heterosexual union. Queen Victoria is reputed to have said of homosexuality, "Well, as long as it does not frighten the horses." Although her mind was so fixed that when legislation was proposed against homosexual, she would not believe that females would indulge in such things and therefore throughout its life, legislation in England only ever referred to male homosexuals. We are assailed with expressions of homophobia a nonsense compilation of inappropriate Greek words as emotional blackmail to prevent us speaking out against practices we feel are against nature. Well, North America's Harvard University is said to be the birthplace of the very worst curse to be inflicted upon homo sapien, I speak of political correctness, that warped thought process that has all but destroyed Christianity and that has opened the pathways for all forms of degeneracy and eccentricity.

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 1/25/2010 5:52:47 PM
Courtney B, I understand that you are frustrated by this article. However, I do not see where you come up with your information. Why do you think the Bible contradicts itself? In response to your theory about the world being created through incest, when the world was created, it was created as perfect. Also, after sin entered the world, it was purely a cultural thing. God said multiply and fill the earth. This was the only way possible at the time. I don't know if I exactly believe that homosexuals are asking for extra laws, but I do believe gay marriage is wrong. The Bible states in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 that homosexuals will not inherit the Kingdom of God. Therefore, gay marriage is wrong because it promotes homosexuality. If homosexuality was right, then God wouldn't keep homosexuals from entering the Kingdom of God. The Bible is not contradictory. If you need more references, you can check out Romans 1:26-28, Leviticus 18:22, or Leviticus 20:13. I think that the reason people say it is gross is because it is not what they are accustomed to. In regards to your insights on how we, christians i mean, live our lives, all people are sinners. It is in our nature. Jesus is the only person capable of being perfect. So we try to live by the Bible, and to please God, but we are only human and we do make mistakes. When we do, we ask for forgiveness. For some it may be so they don't feel guilty, but that is not the original intent.

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 12/16/2009 10:01:20 AM
I think all of you fanatics are ridiculous! First off homosexuals are not asking for extra laws, they want what we love, and be loved and to show love the way we do!!!! For the person who asked for all the stupid people to read the bible....why don't you go a head and read it again, and see how unbelieveably contradicting the bible is....and how this world was actually created Incestuously!!!!! any one has the right to live how they want to live, there should be no one telling them how and wjhat they are doing is gross, and evil! because it is not! some one also mentioned the bible says to love thy neighbor, and most of you finatical wretches do NOT!!!!! All of you speak of god, and Jesus, and the bible and how you should live life by what it says.....but how many of you commit sins daily? And go repent, and say 5 hail marys and your sins are gone!!! Please!!!! That was created so you people could sin, and have no guilt after!!! One of the worst things in this world, and the people who take religion too far!!! THis article, I have to say made me very upset that there are people out there like you, who think there is one way, and only one way to live life!! When there isn't....It's not the devil, it has nothing to do with heaven and hell!!!! THese are people, who have a different out look on things, and you people are just scared of it!!!

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 11/18/2009 2:54:06 AM
I beg to ask what human has a right to bang a moral drum. Every nation, faith, creed, male, female, blah blah, has a flaw. Spouting American justice - tell that to the Native Americans. Family members can't marry as they risk abnormal children. Polygamy isn't harmful, it's just not viewed appropriate in today's 'society', but still exists in some states. And bringing God into it - isn't God meant to love all his children????? Who are we to judge whether he loves only those that conform to present society. The Bible is 2000 years old, times change. Anyone that recites the Lord's prayer should actually take note of what it says and also take note of what the Bible also says - there are many areas that don't ring true in today's 'society'. Isn't a Christian supposed to love his neighbours. Or does he just love those that meet the criteria. If a Catholic does wrong, he can go confess, and all is forgiven. You go to heaven, God forgives you. Again, is that just heterosexuals? Using God as a reason to discriminate against someone is going against all Jesus died for is it not. Love is a human right - the anti gay lobby should look deep into themselves and ask if they feel justified denying a human being the right to openly love another. My son is gay and in a civil partnership and you couldn't find two gentler thoughtful people, who don't make a big deal of it. I would rather he were gay than a woman hater, of whom there are many in the 'straight' world. I actually thank God for him every day. Tell me where the harm is in our society as a result of someone being gay as opposed to the harm done by people who like to take the moral high road. One more thing - being gay is NOT limited to the human population, it is a proven FACT that animals can also be gay.

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 8/26/2009 12:44:34 PM
Eddie you have a good a point. I really wish people would read the bible because it clearly states those who are perverse, wicked, HOMOSEXUALS, and all who do evil biding will not ever enter heaven, so therefore being gay is not right and yes the other religions state that marriage is a special bonding between a MAN AND A WOMAN (I made it in bold so all the idiots and ignorant people can read and understand,SO ALL YOU PEOPLE READ THE BIBLE AND READ OTHER RELIGIONS BELIEFS AS WELL THEY ALL SAY THE SAME THING).

Biblical Anwers To Common Arguments Against Creation (Article) - 6/21/2009 10:40:08 AM
As a non-literalist Christian, I appreciate any attempts to reconcile the Biblical stories with reality. I do want to point out that evolutionary theory has nothing to say about the existence of God or lack thereof. Evolutionary theorists have no position either way. I do have a bigger problem, though, with the Theological War strategists who feel it is okay to lie or use fallacious thought to convert (or to strengthen their own beliefs). -"Evolution is hamstrung by the fact that most of its missing links are still missing." This is just not true. There is a direct link of evolutionary fossils. To suggest otherwise is to be dishonest or is moving the goal posts farther back. If the fossil record and remains don't satisfy you, then genetic links should. -The 'earth deceleration' myth has been debunked. It's a mistaken calculation by creationists. -The 'moondust' myth has likewise been debunked. YEC depend on data from before 1960 (before we even landed on the moon) to come up with this claim. -"Evolution is based on faith in the unseen origin, and so our schools are actually teaching the RELIGION of Evolution! Ain't that somethin', we can't say "Jesus loves you" but we can teach the religion of evolution. (Even Darwin changed his mind before he died.)" Virtually all of the above is untrue and really bats for the cycle. Evolution itself has nothing to do with the origin of life. It has to do with changes over time. The Theory of the Descent of Man has to do with the origin of human life, and that is seen in the fossil record and in the discovered remains. Religion doesn't enter into it. Would a police detective be relying on religion to say a murder occurred at a crime scene even if he didn't witness it? Darwin didn't change his mind before he died. That's a myth propagated by creationists. (I guess if the devil can use the truth to tell a lie, a 'true' Christian can use a lie to tell the Truth?) -"God does exist, take my word for it" is an Appeal to Authority, and if I don't take His word for it, why would I take someone on the internet's -- especially someone with admitted less authority? -"Science always seems to answer questions with questions." Actually, science answers questions and then questions those answers to see if they hold up. That's just how it works, and it works quite well. -"I ask them to prove to me that God does not exist and they do not know what to say." Another fallacious argument. You can't prove a negative. For a counter-proposal - Why don't you prove *I'm* not God? -"if people say there is no god, who do you think made all the beautiful stars, the sky, the trees, the animals?" Who do you think made all the beautiful God? As I said, I appreciate attempts to reconcile the good book with the advancements we've made in the ensuing 1700-2000 years in which it was written, but using or repeating lies, falsehoods and fallacious thinking only sets back the cause of finding Truth.

Biblical Anwers To Common Arguments Against Creation (Article) - 6/7/2009 8:46:10 PM
I hate how people always see it as religion OR science. Science can be about understanding Gods mysteries, not taking them down. I don't get the literalist view on the bible though... There are some things that should very probably not be taken exactly literally (stoning people etc.), so I don't see that the creation myth needs to be exactly correct as written to validate the book as a whole. Why isn't evolution just like this series of floods, a method of God improving what he created, an ongoing creation miracle...

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 6/3/2009 4:59:59 AM
Okay, so what are we straight people supposed to do? Shall we go about mentioning our sexual activities, calling it our right to free speech? Personally, I don't want to know what some stranger does in bed. Anyone else confused about this?

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 5/3/2009 9:39:16 AM
It has long been decided throughout our history, our customs and traditions that the Amercian family is key to our thriving society. In fact, the very purpose of marriage between a man and a woman is for the protection of our legacy, our children. Gays have no inherent right to marry because they do not meet the requirements to qualify for such protection. They can't reproduce between themselves, even with artificial insemination or test tube, it would not be a production of them both.

Biblical Anwers To Common Arguments Against Creation (Article) - 4/17/2009 9:48:08 AM
Well said. Eddie. But why argue with atheists, their first premise is wrong. God does exist, take my word for it.. If the first premise is wrong, then everything based on it is wrong. When asked … If there is a God how come…? My answer is simple… Why don’t you ask him?

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 4/6/2009 11:05:30 PM
Eddie, you are right about the burden of proof. The whole gay agenda is based on an appeal to emotion rather than logic, and deception rather than honesty. The 'civic union' idea was a ploy to buy radicals time. The intent has always been to gain acceptance of a perverse life-style at any cost. The whole agenda is incredibly selfish and full of hatred for heterosexuals and against the Creator God. Satan is behind it and is skillfully manipulating those in their ignorance and darkness to eventually obliterate all gender and sexual differences. Satan is thinking long-range- centuries even- into the future. When Christ returns,and removes His people, then those left on earth will finally get their way for seven years, but at the end, God will cast them into the Lake of Fire. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11) Homosexuals can repent and be made normal by Christ. Those caught in Satan's deception will not agree with your article, so do not be discouraged. The darkness HATES the light but we are called to tell them the truth in love, which I believe you have done.

The Battle Against Racism In Jena: Jena-Cide (Article) - 3/18/2009 5:19:30 AM
Well written and documented. Sad indeed! There’s a lot of racism in America all right and white people have been the victims since the 1960s. Almost 100% of the black people that voted for Obama said it was because he is black. The major of non blacks who voted for Obama also said they did so because he is black and they wanted to prove that they aren’t racists. Say, I guess that means he the first president elected by a racist majority.

Does Evolution Explain Origins? (Article) - 3/17/2009 7:52:20 PM
I'm glad you made the important point that those who accept Intelligent Design are not attacking evolution per se, merely asserting that it is utterly inadequate to explain the origin of life and certain developments since then. That point is so often obscured or overlooked.

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 2/10/2009 10:51:34 AM
Hey Eddie, I think the point was made by a few people that your logic is flawed. "marriage has always been between a man and a woman, so therefore..." or some such nonsense. In fact, the Christian Church, prior to the Protestant split, had in their ceremonies a clearly defined celebration of marriage between men and men and women and women, just as they once allowed priests to marry. Another responder here made a good point; you seem to very emotionally wrapped up in this issue and your writinig suffered as a result.

Biblical Anwers To Common Arguments Against Creation (Article) - 1/26/2009 8:34:46 PM
In response to #1, The words don't give any hint that the earth had already existed prior to God's creating them. [In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, it was a formless wasteland..] The Bible explains that Earth's first appearance was precisely when God had created it along with the heavens on the first day (Genesis 1:1-5). Unless you insert a gap of billions of years between lines 2 and 3, then God proceeds directly after this to mold the formless wasteland into the earth we know today. "God THEN said, 'Let there be light'..." 'Then' specifies that his sweeping over the mighty waters is the instance in which the reshaping commenced. If lines 1 and 2 have no break of time between them, then the word 'Then' in line 3 specifies the reshaping to occur at the point in time directly after the act of creation. This means that God did not wait billions of years to build our modern earth. There was no gap separating its reshaping and its coming into existence. If the word's aren't taken for their literal meaning, then anyone can add 'probablys' to the whole book, and then what are you left with but a template for one's own imagination that allows them to make-up whatever story they would like to think happened. Something that is up for that much interpretation cannot be a solid basis for one's view of the theory of the origin's life. One might as well start from scratch with their own creation story. I think we should come to terms with reality and admit that we have no idea how it happened.

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 11/21/2008 3:49:37 AM
while I am straight, Christian and married; I know very well that a piece of paper is not ordained of god, or causes anyone to be faithful legal responsibilities and legal rights can be viewed as just that and not ordained by law, god or anyone else i have yet to find biblical statements leading to -go to court house and get piece of paper-

The Argument Against Gay Marriages (Article) - 11/20/2008 4:01:28 PM
I am not a gay speaking on behalf of gays and i do have 2 gay uncles. this is complete bs. no where does it say in the bible gays cant get married. Gays have a right to be happy. look at the 14th amendment as citizens of the us we have the right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Gays want to be married it is there right to pursue it. God says to love but not whom. Next religion does not matter. We are not all christians

Seems like there isn't enough times, especially if one has a lot on their mind or agenda, as you do, being a pastor and all. Our pastor at church spoke about this very thing yesterday; has been speaking about it for the past month (How to spend your time with God during the course of a day, how to keep Him with you at all times in your day to day living). Very interesting series; I am trying to do this very thing myself. Good write! Mery Christmas to you and yours, and may God bless you mightily, now during this Christmas season--and always! (((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

Success (Poetry) - 9/20/2005 9:10:46 AM
This symbolistical composition is a combination of impressionism and surrealism painted with the "brushwords" of an Artist-Poet that knows how to choreograph the quills' dance to apply the lexicon that depicts his visions. "Success" mixed the images from medieval times to today´s psycho-social illusions, and entwined a positive message:"DARE TO BE GREATER"; and its closing lines polished the whole picture, giving THE AMERICAN FINE LETTERS, this unique masterpiece for the beauty and proudness of THE MAJOR ART. Thank You, Poet, for enriching the historical pages of Poetry. Healthy Long Creative Life through a Blissful Living, Poet. In gratitude and reverent admiration, Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

The world is seeing what poverty breeds and we are too rich of a Nation to continue to not deal with these types of problems and I am sure we all see and feel the backlash of what could have been avoided in this great Country.

This is very touching, something I'm sure many of us can identify with. We should always go to Him with the faith of a child. Wonderful poem, Eddie!

Life in this is like an abrasion on the knee, and your poem is like Black Salve Ointment in a can. (You know, them good ol' down home remedies that smell really bad like a plague but heal really good like the quiet rush of water against a shore. Unless the kelp washes ashore then the shoreline stinks too. Hey, life is good like this write of your my big brotha.) blessin's cynth'ya

On Spring Erasing Winter's Memory (Poetry) - 12/14/2004 4:49:47 PM
Her eyes are the center of the world; Where Wisdom goes to study, and Hope to grow. We all seem to have a different favorite line. This was my favorite. Guess that means all of them were exceptional. Beautiful work! Thanks.

Tin Man (Poetry) - 12/9/2004 9:55:47 PM
This is really good Bro. Eddie! I think that while the tin man was rusting, the lion was asleep in the den, the scarecrow was picking corn; the little girl was shopping at the Emerald City Dollar Store, and the dog was getting flea dipped. But alas, the morning comes, beaming eastern sunrays of fresh inspiration. blessin's, this was a neat read! cynth'ya

The Pool Of Tears (Poetry) - 9/27/2004 5:48:18 PM
Eddie , this is truly awesome. Yes, it does remind me of my poem The Mask. How I wish abuse would stop and the "Pool of Tears" would dry up and we could see happy smiles on the faces of our children. May God be with all of us, Eddie. ~Linda
