you want every one who wont follow your god ( who you say has the right to do anything to any one ) to die and are just waiting for that to happen you might be content to let people have freedom for now but you don't value it

unless it helps your religion

You may be an ambassador to England or France
You may like to gamble, you might like to dance
You may be the heavyweight champion of the world
You may be a socialite with a long string of pearls
But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes
Indeed you're gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody

You might be a rock 'n' roll addict prancing on the stage
You might have drugs at your command, women in a cage
You may be a business man or some high-degree thief
They may call you doctor or they may call you chief
But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes you are
You're gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody

You may be a state trooper, you might be a young Turk
You may be the head of some big TV network
You may be rich or poor, you may be blind or lame
You may be living in another country under another name
But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes you are
You're gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody

You may be a construction worker working on a home
You may be living in a mansion or you might live in a dome
You might own guns and you might even own tanks
You might be somebody's landlord, you might even own banks
But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You're gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody

You may be a preacher with your spiritual pride
You may be a city councilman taking bribes on the side
You may be workin' in a barbershop, you may know how to cut hair
You may be somebody's mistress, may be somebody's heir
But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You're gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord

But you're gonna have to serve somebody
Might like to wear cotton, might like to wear silk
Might like to drink whiskey, might like to drink milk
You might like to eat caviar, you might like to eat bread
You may be sleeping on the floor, sleeping in a king-sized bed
But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes
Indeed you're gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord

But you're gonna have to serve somebody
You may call me Terry, you may call me Timmy
You may call me Bobby, you may call me Zimmy
You may call me R.J., you may call me Ray
You may call me anything but no matter what you say
Still, you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes
You're gonna have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody

It's funny you should post this today of all days, tomorrow is the day that people will theoretically remember how US military veterans helped their freedoms. They didn't think too much of us after the Vietnam war, especially the Army boys. Hollywood made movies about crazy Vietnam veterans for years. I knew one of them. That war cost him his family and his sanity. Just thought I'd mention it. I still think about him and how he helped my freedoms.

well i figured god would know just as well if not better then men if it was more then imaginary but i suppose it could get away with not being that knowledgeable

and besides other men won't know im asking some of them could be dead by now and i know you dont even approve of trying to contact the dead

god should be able to know of the question and respond so is he not the better being to ask?

if its not made up

...unless you need a blood transfusion.



Also their kids feel left out at Christmas time because they've got nothing to look forward to.

I have been around this world a time or two....or twenty; And the same recurring theme I keep seeing and hearing in every nation I have visited is that their religion is the one true religion, only legitimate voice of god, and the only true written word of god, which cannot be questioned ( that whole heresy thing can be pretty darned convenient, right?) upon pain of eternal damnation.

That's a LOT of religions....and, apparently a LOT one true religions.

So, who is wrong?

Each person has to examine the evidence and determine for themselves...no one can do that for another...

OK, video watched.

I wouldn't like to be in a JW household...not that they're bad people par se...

I much prefer to live in an Atheist household with no mention of god at all...and enjoy Christmas as a fun holiday - the way it was always meant to be.

The pagan Yule is a fun festival. That's why the Christians usurped it.
