Joshua 1:8

Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

Do not let this manifesto of deranged rules depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be my weak minded slave and all your worldly goods shall belong to someone other then yourself!

I thought we were really going to play some bible verse game... I'm kinda disappointed.

We could pick a verse and change it to something in the realm of reality or not what ever please your fancy, such as here is my John 3:16

For god so loved the world that he sacrificed himself to himself to appease himself, and if any of his creations believe this story, he will not be forced to torture them, in his mercy, for all eternity.

We could rewrite the whole bible...lol

FYI - in case anyone is interested - the whole "golden rule" thing is not specific to Christianity. In fact, it's common in most religions. If you want, here is a link to "Some "Ethic of Reciprocity" passages from the religious texts of various religions and secular beliefs" www.religioustolerance.org/reciproc.

See I even had to go back and look up 3:16 because it's not the one I thought it was. LOL I'm doing a really good job of deleting all that crap from my memory! YAY.

No bible games here. I always remember, "god helps those who help themselves" and then remember that Ben Franklin said it. LOL

This is for health and starving is NOT an option.

LOL good purge! John 3:16 is not about the golden rule.

Nope! I tried to purge all that stuff from my brain. The only one that still sticks in John 3:16 because we always see it on signs at ball games so for the past 3 years straight i've been explaining that one to one kid or another. Actually, I tell them that's THE one they should live by since it's about treating others the way you wish to be treated. Had that little "golden rule" discussion with my youngest daughter yesterday because she was mean and bossy to a friend. LOL

Gotcha! ! ! I was just sitting here, looking at the games thread on the message boards. The verses in the members' signatures are -- off-putting. There are times I indulge in the mindless games. I have even played "Bible A-Z."

At my old church, I used to go to training union on Sunday nights, and we had "sword drills" (about age 10-12). We had two teams, and had to look up things in the sword, the Bible. It was a race.

Anybody else - ??
