Senate Votes to Extend Patriot Act

    I used that quote for Ron Paul, until I discover thanks to GOOOH He is a career politician.

    So I now like…………
    ‘All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.’
    — Arthur Schopenhauer
    THINK THINK THINK As I let go and let God, NOW LET GOOOH, LET GOD I was lead to see God in a new light if anyone wants hold on to their Belief that is fine, but as I understand now if a person believe in God as their creator is Deity.
    I thought this would help encourage the unity that a God desires.
    The owner ship of any faith is faith.

    I found a person is not saved by faith in the Bible, but by faith in the self.

    I understand that a person does not have to understand what has shown me, In my enthusiasm in sharing what I now understand is not meant to cause disharmony with friends I share with, I am disheartened with the fact that has happened though.
    That is the only I shared Deity it does not separate, faith does.
