    A very good idea.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I just read this page and it's pretty clear to me that this explains everything. It seems as though you're trying to be 'ironic' with this comment...but it really hits the nail on the head.

    I'm being myself: beautiful and worthless. And that's okay because I love me and God loves me. God bless you.

    So you are worth nothing to God, and yet God loves you? Do explain

    No. I feel emotional like I'm about to cry, so I can't explain now. I have to find the exit. Good night.

    This seems like an abusive and unhealthy relationship, and I'm reading it as if a script from a domestic abuse scenario. "You're worthless, but look, look how I continue to love you even if you're not worth loving!"

    Sends chills down my spine, and actually does make me sad for you. I genuinely mean that. I hope you see yourself as more than that.

    God demands obedience. He always love, but He demands obedience.

    He especially has no tolerance for presumptuous sin, meaning sin that someone consciously commits, even while knowing it is wrong.

    God will not interact much with presumptuous sinners because they are so far removed from listening to Him, that He knows there is no point. He will still try to catch their attention maybe, and draw them in, to Him, but if they keep turning a deaf ear to Him, He will respect that, and leave them alone, as they wish.

    However, He always loves and He always listens. Our task is to humble ourselves. This soften us. It is only when we are softened that we can have the humility to submit to our Lord and Master, Yahweh ALHYM. And then (ironically for some), this is when your life will explode with happiness and peace.

    The more one loves God, the more it is that having nothing in the world means everything, and the less one loves God, the more it is that having everything in the world means nothing.

    @Hard and Qre:us: Y'all hurt me. I've been abused my whole life, but I'm not a victim, nor do I want to make you victims. From the moment I entered this thread, I felt God's love and compassion for you. I know you're hurting, but I am not someone that bullied you in the past. I am a true friend who loves you as well as the missionaries and the people on this forum that bully you (and me) and that you may deeply dislike. You may have seen me defend them in another thread and maybe that was offensive to you; as a result, you have it out for me. Please understand, I had pure intentions of helping them become kinder, gentler, well adjusted people, which ultimately helps you (in the long run). Bullies typically hurt people because they themselves are hurting and have fears of losing control. I've learned in life that it's the people who don't deserve love that usually need love the most. The best defense is to love them. I know loving the people that try to make themselves your enemy is not the natural response, but doing it anyway and seeing the positive transformation in them is a good feeling.

    Sends chills down my spine, and actually does make me sad for you. I genuinely mean that. I hope you see yourself as more than that.
    I forgive you completely. It never happened.

    You forgive me? LMAO. That's quaint.

    Sorry, but I don't care. I stand by every word I said. I also don't want your love or sympathy. Intention doesn't matter here.
