I don't know WHO has the most(or least votes)I really don't care.
What's the purpose?
---Donna66 on 6/14/10|
Lawrence, you are so right. The "votes" here are flawed at best. You must come here for some other reason. To help others in your wisdom and ability is the key. Love must be the motivation. Anything else is fruitless. It is God who cast the only valid vote.
If you come here to get votes then just visit different places that have PCs and vote from them. By doing that you can get a hundrend posted votes to yourself by posting them for yourself.
I have never given much credit to the voting system.
I am glad to find someone with your refreshing attidude. God Bless.
---Elder on 6/12/10|
Plus, how many people vote for themselves?
---aka.joseph on 6/12/10|
Alan of UK
This for sure, I'm Not on here for the votes.
I love these people.
Again, I'm Not going to say things on here to those that have itching ears for what they want to hear.
I don't want to be lost in doing so. This for sure, I would be lost if I did say things they want to hear.
I will Not.
---Lawrence on 6/11/10|
alan>>>Pleaseeeeee. You cannot go by that, because, I have been on here a long time. I give them to Jesus, not trying to be so religious. But, I do>>>give them to Him. HOW'S THAT!
---catherine on 6/11/10|
By the number of votes they have, it seems that Kath4453 and catherine are the joint favourites, each having many more votes than the next one on the list.
And Lawrence ... don't worry ... I have even fewer votes than you!
---alan8566_of_uk on 6/11/10|
My agreement with man's doctrines (or teachings or rants) are not necessarily because I hear what I want to hear, it is because it is in line with the Holy Sciptures (and not all bibles are equally valid).
In addition, my disagreement with man's doctrines (or teachings or rants) are not necessarily because I do not hear what I want to hear, it is because it is not in line with the Holy Sciptures.
---aka.joseph on 6/10/10|
Amen, Lawrence. Deserves ten amens. AMEN, AMEN, AMEN, AMEN, AMEN, AMEN, AMEN, AMEN, AMEN, AMEN. God said, "you had better count them or they won't think you can count". Amen.. Jesus you are funny.
---catherine on 6/10/10|
At least I don't think I am to most, Why ?, because I don't say things that tickles the peoples hearing. That is exactly what the people of the Man-made relig-org's churches beginning with the rcc the First trin-church 2nd.Cor.11 v's 14 - 15 are doing, tickling the peoples hearing for what they want to hear.
I will Not because the devil is Not worth it to be lost for.
---Lawrence on 6/9/10|
Donna66: No. The quote was from the other Donna on 4/9/10.
---jerry6593 on 5/27/10|
jerry6593-- Is your comment (about favorites) directed to me?
If so, what is it in regards to? Or maybe you meant the other Donna.
---Donna66 on 5/26/10|
Donna: "I wonder if God has favorites?"
Apparently so. Check this out and see how we are all viewed in heaven.
Mat 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
---jerry6593 on 5/26/10|
Again, I believe that Shawn M.T. is the most precise blogger. We need more of his answers. He has slowed down answering but he is still with us.
There are many who answer that I see have a great passion for Christ, who also answer very well, with a purpose for Christ, here are some I can think of right now.
Donna66, Joseph, Lee, Steven-rem, Tommy, Elder, Darline, Mark E, Char, Mima, Bill-bila, Rod4him, Lawrence, Micha, Warwick, michael e, Leon, Aka, Linda, and many others whose names that do not come to me right now.
---MarkV. on 5/26/10|
AKA is one of my favourites. He does not take hoimself as seriously as most, although he takes the blog seriously.
Samuel, and jerry may be the most doctrinally sound, so I like then.
---francis on 5/25/10|
mine is when I read a reply and know its the holy spirit speaking thru that believer,that is my favorite blog.
---tom2 on 5/21/10|
Predudice, I believe, is mainly taught. If you hear your parents tell of bad things that happened to them or their family members, because of some other race, you are more likely to conclude that everyone of that race bears some inner grievence toward you. The more you hear it and the more you see people react to it, the more real it becomes to you.
If, however, you seldom hear race referred to, and you see your family interacting with people of other races in a friendly way, even praising people of other races for their strengths...chances are good you will not have a racial prejudice.
Fortunately, most young people today (unlike some earlier generations) are comfortable including those of different races in their work or play.
---Donna66 on 4/24/10|
Joseph, your right it is not addressed in Scripture and anything you hear is only going to be from someone, and it could be bias answers to begin with. Nothing really reliable for man fail all the time. I could give you my opinion but it would only be my own opinion.
What I see about us as brothers and sisters in Christ is so beautiful. You could fly to South America and meet genuine believers there and you both would be so happy. It is wonderful to go to Christian concerts too because you know, almost everyone is your brother or sister and everyone is showing their joy and happyness they feel. To me it was a wonderful feeling to be among so many who are in love with the Lord. Singing and happy even if they are going through things in life.
---MarkV. on 4/24/10|
Understood Elder. I agree with both you and MarkV concerning this. I appreciate the input. Thank you.
I was simply hoping to receive some insight into that prejudicial mindset from someone who embraces it.
However I do not think that even they understands why they "feel" or think the way they do.
I understand that there will always be those who will hate and prejudge another, I sympathize. If they would "judge no man by the color of His skin, but rather the content of his character," that would at the least, require them to take the time to come to know him.
Mark I contemplate the plight in an effort to understand the mindset from/by which it originated, and it's purpose. Which is not biblically addressed.
---joseph on 4/24/10|
I always respect a man who never posts or voice his own opinions, but rather sits and waits for other people to do so.
Then critisizes them and spellchecks their writings.
---John on 4/23/10|
Joseph please remember that not all people are the same and do not feed into the discrimination/hate of another. Also remember that loving your "white/black" brother does not sell news papers. It is when people hate that others prosper. Mostly those who know not Jesus as Saviour hate others.
Discrimination is a matter of convenience. If someone is in a burning car they don't care who pulls them out. When they are out and safe they can go back to hating again.
Most important Satan would have us hate one another.
---Elder on 4/23/10|
I don't know if I have a favorite, BUT, there a few that I respect very much.
Kath, Nana, Ruben, Donna66, AKA Joseph, Mima.
They utilize the entire word of God and don't cherry pick.
---miche3754 on 4/23/10|
aka joseph, well not so bad, it could be worse. Ha. Have a good day!
---catherine on 4/23/10|
Catherine is my favorite.
Borrowing from the movie "Forrest Gump": Catherine's blogs are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you gonna get.
The entertainment value is priceless.
---aka_joseph on 4/23/10|
One of my favorite blogger is Donna66. She speaks clearly and to the point.
---Bobby-1 on 4/22/10|
What I wonder is, what if when we get to Heaven Jesus looks like the one we disliked so much here on earth?
How many will say, "I ain't staying here."
---Elder on 4/15/10
OR what if some end up at The Great White Throne judgment looking up at (those who are saved) someone here they absolutely thought was a false teacher?
---kathr4453 on 4/19/10|
Joseph 2: I was wondering why you said you always contemplate the plight of the dark skin man on earth? And you even added some examples of what God looked like. Worrying or thinking about the race issue is what the enemy would want us all to do instead of just learning about who God is. Not His race but His attributes, character and nature. The Bible is about God. And pondering reasons about the dark skin people and comparing those feelings when you read Scripture will be a wrong reason to study.
I suggest to put that behind you now that you are a brother in Christ. Race should not have any bearing now while in Christ. We are all the same, brothers, part of One body. If I met you in person, I would give you a big hug. My brother
---MarkV. on 4/19/10|
Joseph, Jesus could not ever look now like anyone person. Rev. 1:15 is not speaking literally. What is said is something symbolic. Garment refers to the High Priest. The golden sash across His chest completes the picture of Christ serving in His priestly role (Lev. 16:1, Heb. 2:17). "White like wool" White here does not refer to a flat white color but a blazing glowing white light (Dan. 7:9). "Eyes flaming of fire" refers something like two lasers, the eyes of the exalted Lord look with penetrating gaze into the depths of His church (2:18, 19:12, Heb. 4:13).
"Feet like fine brass" Glowing hot brass feet are a clear picture to divine judgement.
---MarkV. on 4/18/10|
"..what if when we get to Heaven Jesus looks like the one we disliked so much here on earth?" Interesting statement.
"I watched till thrones were put in place, And the Ancient of Days was seated, His garment was white as snow, And the hair of His head 'like' (resembled) pure wool...and His feet like unto 'burnished bronze', as if [they] had been refined in a furnace..." Dan. 7:9>Rev. 1:15
I have always contemplated the plight of the dark skinned man on earth. Why have we been "disliked" and discriminated against in this sensually based system of things? I know that Satan is it's god, whom Jesus Himself called the prince of this world. So obviously that bigotry is influenced of him, my question is why?
---joseph on 4/18/10|

At times each blogger can have something relevant to share, if not today then perhaps tomorrow.
---Eloy on 4/12/10|
joseph, I do not need any help at discreditable blogging, I already do that enough myself. :~)

MarkV always expresses himself clearly. He is consistant in what he believes and can back it up appropriately with Scripture. I think he shows great restraint in the way he answers one or two that would slander him because they disagree.
---Donna66 on 4/10/10|
---aka_joseph, no apologies necessary sir. Joseph and I have distinguished ourselves by the use of the lowercased or capitalized letter J. Although I have slipped up at times, and of course apologized, for could have been viewed as an intentional misrepresentation. Chances are Aka_joseph will never be duplicated, unless of course someone is intentionally searching to discredit you in some way. Unfortunately that does happen occasionally, however with the attitude displayed in your words, I do not think that that will be a problem for you. For as you have noted, there are tares, and "They love this faceless style of communication." Therefore "remember to dust your feet if you need to." Happy blogging:o)
---joseph on 4/10/10|
My apologies to Joseph and joseph. I did not realize that you can use the same username. When I started blogging a week ago, it asked for a name and not a username. I cannot figure out how to get a unique username here, but to use a name and hope it won 't be taken.
Anyway, my answer here was joseph on 4\8\09.
Also, beware of the tares. They love this faceless style of communication, and remember to dust your feet if you need to, the Holy Spirit convicts not our brilliant words.
---aka_joseph on 4/9/10|
I wonder if God has favorites? LOL
I don't want to be man's favorite, I want to be the apple of His eye. No offense to anyone here. I love all of you very much.
I eat the chicken and spit out the bones. That means I take in what is truth (Jesus said thy word is truth) and spit out the rest.
I love lots of bloggers here. Too many to name.
---Donna on 4/9/10|
I like these guys!
I can't stand those guys!
---John on 4/9/10|
We need to use great care about "playing favorites" in any area. Scripture says God is not partial, and we should follow that example. Generally, every person who blogs here is earnest about telling and hearing about God, so all are on a good road, and those least angry help the most.
---Geraldine on 4/9/10|
CN management has already provided a means for identifying who we consider to be "helpful bloggers". I suppose being helpful isn't necessarily the same thing as being favored (approve of). Seems, there's a felt need here to choose one or more blog personalities over others. :/
(1 Cor. 1:10-13)
Alan: I suspect some here wouldn't choose John the Baptist, Jesus nor the apostle Paul, etc., as being in their select group of favorite Bible bloggers. Oh well!
I cast my vote with Bill_billa5659. Big thumbs (both of them) up Bill!!! :)
---Leon on 4/9/10|
I like how the Holy Spirit blogs (c:
There are times I read certain things and I am awestruck by how the person is compassionate and has insight that intelligence and Bible knowledge can not give the person, and the arguments, even, are so caring, not just justifying oneself or justifying one's religious group. And I don't remember the names of these people. But it always gets my attention to how I need to be more honest and real in love so I give better than just knowledge and experience stuff and explanation.
---Bill_bila5659 on 4/9/10|
katavasia is my favorite blogger,alway's solid loving advise.
---kevin on 4/8/10|
My favorite blogger is the blogger who through the Spirit helps me understand more of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
I, also, like the ones who are hidden in God's Righteousness (Jesus) and displays the Truth with some measure of the fruits of the Spirit.
Anyway, I prefer bloggers who are not boogers - on or off target.
"For it [is clear to me by reading this blog site]that there is quarreling among you... Christ did not send [us to quarrel] but to preach the gospel, and not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power."
---joseph on 4/8/10|
It is just impossible for me to pick just one. Each and every person on here is so unique with a different view of the Bible,and even when I don't agree with them on every point I do get something out of what they say. Often others views send me to do research on whatever they say,to either confirm it or show it is misguided with Bible verses. Blessings to you all.
---Darlene_1 on 4/8/10|
Ruben, what we all have in common is that none of us you mentioned are Roman Catholics. That is about it.
You didn't mention which one blogger you like the best. I believe it is Nana. It might have been Emcee if he was still around.
---MarkV. on 4/8/10|
That is a very hard choice. I have a long list of favorites. It takes everyone to make it work and I have a great deal of respect for those who take the time to respond on the blogs. Favorite? Probably between Mima and Donna. But again, I enjoy reading them all.
---jody on 4/8/10|
Lee, Mima, MarkV, Kathr,Rhonda and a few others.. sorry if I left your name out.
What do all of these names have in common?
---Ruben on 4/8/10|
The one I enjoy the most is Shawn M.T. I believe he explains things very kindly and from Scripture, His motives are always for God.
---MarkV. on 4/7/10|
I very much enjoy Cluny at one end of the spectrum, and Warwick at the other.
---ger.toshav on 4/7/10|
there are many biblically knowledgeable people on this site,the problem I have is too many believe they are climbing into a ring with boxing gloves when they answer,and some even act like their in a street fight.
