Goodness doesn't flow from religious deities alone.

Having been brought up in the Christian religion (C of E), taught me, that there were certain principles on the surface within the teachings that would hold me in good stead should I take the trouble to abide by them. 'Love thy neighbour, not to steal or lie (tax returns exempted), give succour to the poor and not to kill unless by Govt decree but despite my efforts to abide by these edicts, I must admit I have failed dismally except for 'Love thy neighbour' but not too recently.
The remaining spit and polish of this faith industry sect remains similar to many other beliefs which serve only to strike fear into those who in some cases are compelled to believe this tripe, scientifically proven did not and will not happen.
Sadly,the rogues and charlatans of the faith industry control about five percent of the worlds economy, and like the deceit of the lying business houses, will control our lives for all time until every one is given a common sense pill.

Over the past week. I visited the vascular surgeon on Tuesday who gave me comforting news and I thanked him for doing a good job, I thought the plumber did a good job too - about six weeks back - but his pipe fixing was significantly less costly.

Tamara - Rose our gorgeous charming beautiful pretty and lovely Granddaughter was sixteen on Saturday May 2. Her younger sister has all of her hallmarks too. Tamara spent most of Saturday out shopping starting from ten minutes after our birthday card contents were revealed.
We frequently get gouged for presento's as well as Xmas with 14 G/& G G/children.
Having children means you must make provision for them and their issue well into retirement years, those who don't - end up wearing old clobber that arrived in the wardrobe more than ten years ago. Nearest and dearest keeps up with the trends and I try to fit in somehow - the sacrificial old goat, who must give and not to count the cost.
Have a loving week, Vest.

I thought the idea of having children and g/children was so that they looked after YOU in your older age? Just as well I have no progeny ... or I'd be batting them about with my brolly every time they asked for handouts. Lol!
Glad to hear you have a clean bill of health.

Appropriate Passages

A new pastor was visiting the homes of his parishioners.

At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door.
Therefore, he took out a card and wrote "Revelation 3:20" on the back of it and stuck it in the door.

When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned.
Added to it was this cryptic message, Genesis 3:10."

Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter.

Revelation 3:20 begins "Behold, I stand at the door and knock." Genesis 3:10 reads,
"I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid, for I was naked."
