Usenet Post - Re: Only Jesus saves, believe in Him!

eeeew! That's really gross. I wont have a living dead dude touching me.

That's really gross too... My body gradually decays as I get older. If I live forever I would at some point smell really rotten and my flesh would fall from my bones, while I'm still alive. Eeeewww!

> Jesus didn't come to condemn the world. He want's to save it.

From what?

> Jesus did always what God wanted Jesus to do, try the same!

Right! Ok! Where's the nearest place where I can get nailed to a cross and look really suffering and say "Father, father! What hadst thy forgotten me?"...

> If you aren't christian already become a one. God want's that everyone who

Yeah, like I said earlier...That's really gross, and I just had dinner.

> Believe in God, Jesus and paradise. Jesus is the only way to eternal life

Does anyone have a tourist guided map of hell? Could be really nice to spend a week or two there....You know - just to relax and un-stress....

> Regret all your sins and ask forgiveness from God and Jesus.

Now I surely don't have any chance at all to get into heaven. I have no sins!

> Beg for mercy!

Ok...MERCY! What happens next?

> You can't hide anything from God since He knows everything and He will
> reveal all your sins.

He he - God can't see what I don't have.

> So confess all your sins and keep your heart pure, God and Jesus will

When they find out, that I don't have any sins, and I don't have anything to confess...Wont they get really mad at me?

> When you regret and ask forgiveness you will feel better, your heart
> becomes lighter and you will have peace in your mind.

Oh - right - thanks, but I already have peace in my heart, and I also feel pretty comfortable.

> Turn from bad into good! Become a reformed person. Love God, Jesus and
> fellowmen. Don't be proud of your knowledge. Money must not be the great
> thing in your life.

Ah! One of the main reasons why I became a buddhist. The reverent took all my money. He said, "and behold! Jesus need your funds to clear the road for his return, and behold! Here is my bank account and instructed by Jesus. You KNOW what your earthly possesions are worth!". The following week I saw my reverent driving a really cool masarati, with two loving young blonde, very mature, women, each holding a sign saying, "Jesus loves you - send more money!"

> The great thing must be God and Jesus.
> Gather up courage and ask Jesus to come into your life in your mind and He

Uh! That reminds me of a movie.."stolen bodies" or something - really creepy. Aliens taking over your mind and stuff.

You don't have to tell ME that. Last year he came by, as I had just recieved a shipment of different dope from columbia. "Just staying for a few days", he said... He stayed until I was out of drugs, and I was $200.000 poorer and one pissed off columbian druglord richer.

> You will have peace in your mind and heart.

With all those drugs - I believe you...

Sounds good that. God! In the name of Jesus! Something terrible happened! Could you help people all over the world, by removing Bush and insert a black, gay dude in his place?

I'll tell that to my dog. He ate some leftover cookies, from when hare krishna came on a visit. He's still naucious and shits brown water.

> Jesus must be your lord. If you feel abandoned God is just testing you.

Yes, I know. Not so long ago he loved my sister. She got twins. How do you get God to pay alimony?

>If you have bad thoughts in your mind those are from Satan and never obey
>Satan. Reject all bad in your mind and you will become stronger. Don't make

>because He is good.

The really difficult thing here is what is good and what is bad. See, one day about twelve years ago God came to me in my sleep and said, "Hear me, son of Abraham! Hear me! Go into the world and be neked before my eyes and tell about me, my son, and my holy bible!". I did what he said, you know, and I really thought that people would listen to what I had to say. Afterall...I WAS on a mission from God... Instead people locked me up in a little padded cell, giving me all kinds of cool drugs all day long....

> You will get perfect rules how to live right from the Bible. From there
> you will find out what kind of life God and Jesus want's you to live.

I tried that one too. It was just after they let me out from the asylum. I read the bible, and being a good christian I saw that I had stone all prostitues to the death. Then the nice men came back and locked me up AGAIN! Can you believe it? I was just following the f... bible!

> Read at least the new testament through. Would you like to be a servant of
> God? Just be it.

Ha! Tried that too. Last time I service God, I had a pain in my ass for eight weeks. God is HUGE!

> Forgive always. Never condemn anyone. Give mercy!

I did forgive God for being a pain in the ass...

> My one and only intention is just help you.

Well, thank you!

> Jesus is my lord. Who is yours?

Myself.

> I hope he's Jesus.

He's not! Does that mean we're not friends anymore?

> "The one who hears my words and believes in my sender, has gained eternal

Yes, I reconize those words. I fell for them too at first. But then he refused paying for anything else, but is own dinner. Sweet talking mouth, but really cheap when it comes to money...

www.eff.org, www.censorware.net Filtered by YPC

rbullo rbullo writes  |  more than 9 years ago That's right. I can't get to the EFF's website from my home connection. For some reason unknown to me, Yahoo!'s filter software (or the writers thereof) has/have decided that the Electronic Frontier Foundation was not suitable for young readers. Strangely, the Action Center and the domain www.eff.com still work, but the site itself links to www.eff.org as the "true" home page.

As noted above, www.censorware.net is also fltered, again for reasons unknown to me. Perhaps somebody at Yahoo! is a bit paranoid?


UPDATE 10-26-04 - www.eff.com no longer works.

You Bitch!!!

rbullo rbullo writes  |  about 11 years ago My browser's broken. It seems that sometimes it will refuse to open a page, even though there is a good connection. I have to tell it to "Work Offline", then put it back online again. It usually happens when I open a new window, and it's a pain in the ass...

How do you deal with draconian computer rules?

rbullo rbullo writes  |  about 11 years ago I just moved to Kokomo, Indiana, and have begun attendance at Kokomo High School. Two of the classes I'm taking are Intro to Engineering Design and Digital Electronics, both of which require extensive use of computers. Unfortunately, the school corporation has set very restrictive rules on the use of their computers--for example, moving any of the icons on the desktop is considered VANDALISM(their emphisis, not mine), as is changing any settings, no matter how trivial. Most recently, the administrators have declared that you cannot change your password unless your instructor does it for you. This is just stupid, becaus everyone starts out with the same password , and my account was created AFTER this rule was put in place. So what do you do? Hack it? I don't know who to complain to(their website doesn't give any address info on any of their administrators), so I'm completely lost on this one.
P.S., 9/24/03 I have just found out that the student passwords cannot be changed at all. Apparently, some students got in trouble last year(don't ask me).

POLL!!!

rbullo rbullo writes  |  about 11 years ago

I just submitted this poll to the editors, but I don't think it will have a good chance of making it through. So just in case...

Should Slashdot editors have unlimited mod points?
1. Yes
2. No
3. CowboyNeil needs mod points!

Which platform should I choose?

rbullo rbullo writes  |  more than 11 years ago Driven by my desire to explore new systems, as well as Microsoft's Palladium initiative, I recently decided to check out the alternatives to the aging x86 architecture - namely PowerPC, SPARC, and Alpha. But after checking out the websites, it seems that these are too expensive for blind experimentation. So I went to Google to find some comparison charts. I had no luck here. The best thing I could turn up was this, which seems very biased toward PPC. So it seems that Slashdot is the only other place I can turn. Could any of you direct me to a good comparison of the different architectures, or post one here?
