A reading from Joshua

16 And at the seventh time, when the priests had blown the trumpets, Joshua said to the people, “Shout, for the Lord has given you the city. 17 And the city and all that is within it shall be devoted to the Lord for destruction.[a] Only Rahab the prostitute and all who are with her in her house shall live, because she hid the messengers whom we sent. 18 But you, keep yourselves from the things devoted to destruction, lest when you have devoted them you take any of the devoted things and make the camp of Israel a thing for destruction and bring trouble upon it. 19 But all silver and gold, and every vessel of bronze and iron, are holy to the Lord; they shall go into the treasury of the Lord.” 20 So the people shouted, and the trumpets were blown. As soon as the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted a great shout, and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they captured the city. 21 Then they devoted all in the city to destruction, both men and women, young and old, oxen, sheep, and donkeys, with the edge of the sword.

The word of the LORD

For me this says gods will ,will be done,If you take a destructive path you will be destroyed .If you take a righteous path you will be saved.The old testament is pretty heavy on the god fearing .Probably necessary in the day.
I think that is why he (we) wrote the new testament to lighten his message up and made god more loving.
But the old is fun to read its all fire and brimstone.
I find it very hard to interpret a single verse .It must at least be in the context of its paragraph.
I think that is why it gets so misinterpreted .If your going to practice cafeteria style religion you need a balanced diet .If you just read into one verse out of context ,It is like eating nothing but desert,Sounds good at first but it will make you sick.
Peace be with you.

More jebus beats for easter.
I think the evangels make too much of the resurrection. It seems so necessary to make their literal interpretation.
For me its a resurrection of his belief that we are all brothers and sisters together in one god.
Peace be with you.

I light up daily at 420 and I have yet to see gawd there with me.
Maybe I need to light up more.

Many use weed and hallucinagins to connect to their spiritual nature.
I've found it is all a sacred ritual.
Some less legal and stinky.
Try letting your thumb off the carb and get some monster hoots
You will see god
Also there are 2 420s in the day maybe you should hit the other or both

When I was !7 I had never tried anything .One day I was visiting my big brother Everyone was doing a thing called peyote. They were all laughing and having a great time.My brother said it was just cactus seeds in a little capsule .It was all natural and cool.
So I tried one.
I was sitting at a table playing euchre and all of a sudden I forgot how to play .Everyone started laughing at me and I started to freak out.
They said they forgot a long time ago and gave me a group hug and guided me on my trip.I sat up all night talking to my brother and never felt closer to him.It was an amazing shared ritual.
Now I get that same connectivity during my reading ,like a flashback. Fortunately it doesn't last twelve hours.Its way more powerful.Its like there is no haze and god is squeezing my heart.
Peace be with you.

Its hard to admit Jesus was cool .Be not afraid.

Try singing with this cool native guy and see if you can feel the connection.
1.
You shall cross the barren desert, but you shall not die of thirst.
You shall wander far in safety though you do not know the way.
You shall speak your words in foreign lands and all will understand.
You shall see the face of God and live.

R.
Be not afraid.
I go before you always.
Come follow me, and
I will give you rest.

2.
If you pass through raging waters in the sea, you shall not drown.
If you walk amid the burning flames, you shall not be harmed.
If you stand before the pow'r of hell and death is at your side, know that
I am with you through it all.

3.
Blessed are your poor, for the kingdom shall be theirs.
Blest are you that weep and mourn, for one day you shall laugh.
And if wicked men insult and hate you all because of me, blessed, blessed are you!

I'm quite well adjusted to the methods and madness around the consumption of Herb.
I have yet to see gawd no matter what road I take with Herb.
I have consumed Herb at all hours, and all minutes and in many a variety of quantities and qualities.
I still have yet to see gawd no matter what Herb I travel with nor how often I hit him.

Sounds to me like you get on a bit of a power trip when you stand on your soap box thumping the bible. That's common amongst those who must take up the "reading". Are you sure that's not the case with you and if you are sure it's not...how may I ask can you tell?
You would have come closer to selling me had you said the trip lasts at least twelve hours. Anything less and I'd want my money back.
If I felt someone was squeezing my heart, I'd freak out first. Get your hands of my heart kind of thing. Secondly, I'd be wanting to head straight for a hospital. Depending on the severity of this hand on my beating heart phenomenon, I'd have a choice of two types of hospitals to head for.

I don't admit to things I don't believe to be true.
Unless of course you drive pins under my fingernails...then I'll agree or surrender or admit to anything.
You're not gonna drive pins under my nails are you Kibbs?
I tried singing with the stoned little man, and I couldn't slow my brain down enough to jive with him.
I felt a connection between my left and right buttocks and this padded chair upon which I sit.
I shall believe in the almighty chair, as it has shown its strength to me through my dependance upon it and it has never failed me or shown itself to be anything but tangible undeniable truth in its existence.
Bow to the chair.
Ouch.
Just banged my head on the desk.

Trying to get spiritual nourishment from a two thousand year old book is like trying to suck milk from the breast of a woman who has been dead that long.

Terence is a brilliant man.
Without doubt an oddity by the standards of most, but one need only listen to the man for a short while to realize he is without a doubt one of the more brilliant open minds we've been blessed to record.

Maybe you have misunderstood my intent .I have been looking for a place to share my spiritual beliefs .this is where the spirit has moved me .
I'm not trying to push the bible Im trying to see the meaning interpreted in a more spiritual less religious way.I am not preaching the bible I am studying it .
I did not want to attend and not contribute so when I asked what I can do, they asked if I would read .I like reading .I did in English and I did Theater.For me it is a performance and the the high I get and the squeeze on my heart is the love I receive in gratitude for making the reading have feeling. Once I understand it ,I can believe it enough to say it with passion.
