    Turn the other cheek actually refers to a law that was present at the time; yeu hit people with yeur left hand if they were inferior, with yeur right if they were equal to yeu and yeu were challanging them to a duel and such.

    In short, turning the other cheek meant yeu were actually saying "try that again and yeu're going to regret it", it's actually a threat and forcing them to consciously accept the threat and possible repercussions of such. It had nothing to do with 'asking for more' or ignoring it.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Halla- you covered why I can't be an atheist at all... too many random chances coming together to just be luck... as Einstein said "god doesn't play dice with the universe"... life is amazing, beautiful and varied, but there had to be a spark to jump start it somewhere... ... there was actually a physics professor at my college (a large state university... not a religious college) who liked to use math and physics to prove that there is a god... I of course didn't understand the math involved, but it was a fascinating concept nonetheless

    Lightyear- oh crap... the tenent of Christianity I've had the most difficult time with other than hell is that I really have issues beleiving in Jesus That's why I used to go to temple instead of church...

    Do you think there are others in the world who could facilitate your manner of interaction and understanding? (I assume here that the bible-belters who surround you are less than ideal). If so, perhaps you should move to where they are. It seems your spiritual/intellectual development is being stunted where you are.

    edit: I want a color too!

    Then don't worry about Jesus, he can take care of himself. Jesus was to live by the same rules anyone does....relax. Just be the best soul you know how to be. And as I mentioned from your writings, you are well on your way.

    Katsuni- yeah... the mysoginistic "women are the root of all evil and should do what the men tell them" idea really irks me... if I ever run across the Apostle Paul, which I won't because he's dead, I really really really want to kick him in the nuts

    owl- I can't move... it's expensive and my people are here... and we just got a house :horor:
