Charlize

A good biblical defense

Recommended Posts

VickySGV

Sorry to say this Charlize, but I have yet to find a single person this really worked on. It is great entertainment and certainly a fantasy of every one of us who has been the victim of assault with a Bible, but IRL a Pile Driver will not get this into them and may damage the Pile Driver if you try.

I tried it one time, (not the Pile Driver) and got hit with the old blasphemy routine and damn near a set of fists. Living well and open and happy is the best defense and offense that we can ordinarily take. Better yet, take 'em out for a Lobster dinner!!

I have to say based on my own upbringing and family there is absolutely no resolution. The fact is I have to do my thing...and I can state the facts, but its really not worth the effort...I'm pretty non-confrontational. The only issues arise when I need to go to court to get something done, and I have 100% record on doing just that.

Are shellfish clean? Maybe just bacon and eggs. I am fortunate to have never gone round and round with any thumpers. I presume that rational behavior does not apply. Pity, faith and spirituality have given comfort and relief to so many including myself. Theological arguments often seem to go no where but they do provide amusement at least if you can duck the punches.

Maybe this topic would be better set in entertainment.

Hugs,

Charlize

I've managed to influence some of my friends from the SDA church that I was a member of for a few years. Several of them have become very accepting and even affirming towards me and LGBT+ people in general. Some of you may know how the SDA church is, believing in the scriptures and the scriptures alone. Having studied for myself, I can now point them in the right direction, at some key verses, and some of the original languages and words used, so they can study for themselves. When they do that, the Holy Spirit is telling them that what I have helped them to find is, in fact, Truth. At that point it is up to them, whether they accept this new light or not. Some people can be reasoned with. Some can not. My only job is to show them what I have learned. And always with a smile and in a loving manner. Only love can drive out hate.

Hi,

What I find strange is and iv said this before those who use the old writings are so out of date and their thinking is deluded why , because they take what was given to people to whom it concerned ,

this is what applys when reading the letters of the many writers = okay bible.

first who gave the message , and to whom, why and when and did it apply to any one other than those people who it concerned ,

NO,,,,so the teaching given say over the last 200 years does it have meaning for us now again NO,,,why not because it was not addressed to us so those who use that teaching don't know what they are talking about , so how many 1000 years are we removed from that time you work it out then read it with the mind set of those times you may find its very different ,

its not written in English try the language of the day and how many tribes it was given to ,

Bigots are those who do not know or understand the language , and then put their meaning on it and try and make others bend the knee to them ,its called, to worship their god and idols , who ever they maybe.

      Hi Jackie,   I have experienced a few disconnections from the site and this undoubtedly explains why. I hope you can resolve the technical problems soon! 🤗

      I always wanted to take aikido. It looks effective.

      @Charlize @Jani Thank you both for the reassurance.  I never want to ruin a good thing with a family relationship.  I was playing it safe to some degree but when you have only bits and pieces of a particular situation you’re serving an entree of ‘best guess’ with a side of ‘wisdom’.   Thanks again, Susan R🌷

      Well yes and no.  My dad still uses the nickname I used for decades.  It sounds silly when he does it.  My wife even commented on it when we last saw them.  I'm at the point of not caring anymore since I'm comfortable with who I am and if its said loud enough in public, he's the one who seems odd.  Plus we don't see my parents face to face regularly.   So the daughter just may see it as not worth the effort.    This would be a nice outcome.     Jani

      Hey Spence! Welcome to the forum, we welcome you with open arms

      I would have done the same thing you did Susan.  I say that from my own experience.  It has taken my son many years to properly name me and not refer to me as Dad in public.  When we are together in private it doesn't bother me but in public it can cause confusion and embarrassment.  If the woman does use her daughters chosen name and it disturbers her daughter i'm sure she will say something.  My guess is that she would see it as a final acceptance.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Thanks susan, and you dont have to think i was putting up with anything, its just nice to hear im not completely alone even in some small way,heh
    • Aidan5
      Haha that's true.     He is so hyper and excited all the time it is adorable and hard to keep up with him, and I thought I was hyper!! But I really think he was throwing some hints at me and I am definitely taking them and keeping them. He seems like the kind who likes to tease playfully so I better watch out haha.

      Asking the Trans person is always in good taste and correct manners.  My only caution is to do it at a private time between the two of them.

      Welcome Magical Realism, a pleasure to meet you...You are not alone in this at all.  I too have been having dreams like this.  I’ve had them for decades but since going full time they now have changed slightly. Mine were a little different [pre-transition] in that the fact that I was presenting male except I had breasts accompanied by a bra under my male clothes. The funny thing is that in almost every dream, the people in the dream were unknowing of my little secret until later in the dream, I eventually always get outed by some ridiculous circumstance..lol.  But oddly enough, since actively starting my transition, I am always presenting as Susan.  It’s almost as if my subconscious is aware of my conscious activities...(kidding)   Well Magical Realism, thanks for putting up with my ramblings. These things happen from time to time. I’m glad you came aboard...hope you stay for the ride.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      I would have been a little more direct and said, "Maybe you should ask her." That's just me though. I can't think of a reason I would be uncomfortable if my mother started calling me by my actual legal name and using the correct pronouns. Well, I might be a little skeeved out. We're not close and she's been hostile about it up until now. She'd be up to something. Your new friend though, she seems sincere.   I don't see anything wrong with your answer. It never hurts to try and make a loved one more comfortable when you're talking to them.   Hugs!

      My wife & I are attending an inclusive church regularly now and afterwards we attend an adult class at the church.  Right now, we’re in the middle of a 7 week study called ”Dialogues on Sexuality”.  The class focuses on LGBTQ+ inclusiveness, birth gender, gender roles, church patriarchy, and gender identity.  It’s been very good.  I think this class is the church’s way to get the members of congregation to learn, understand and adopt their “inclusiveness doctrine”.  It’s early in the game but they’re trying so hard and for the most part, we feel very welcome there.   My wife brought one of the class members over to me after the class was over.  My wife had been talking to her and confided with her in the small group time.  The nice woman had an interesting question for me. Her daughter is a 36 year old MtF.  The daughter is now called by her new female name by everyone except her.  So this lady asked me, “If my daughter hasn’t specifically asked me to call her by her female name but has asked others in front of her to use her female name, should I continue to use her male birth name?” Then added, “Do you think she minds?”   I had to pause and think.  I said, ”You're using all the correct pronouns, why not match that when you address her and do what she asks the others around her to do.”  I added, “I think out of respect and love, she is simply not correcting you.  Make her day and starting right now, only use her new female name...see how she reacts. Or you could just ask her but doing it out of your own volition will probably make her happiest”    I honestly don’t know if I gave her the best advice because on the small chance her daughter wanted only her to call her by her birth name I could of messed up a good thing.  I just saw it through my own eyes.  Well, this lady and then my wife started tearing up and she now wants us to get together.  I’m just hoping I helped instead of hampered the situation.  I really don’t know the daughter so it’s a hard call and wondering if I there was any advice, different or not, you all would’ve given this nice lady.   Susan R🌷
