  • I show people what I'm made of by being a decent human being who loves and cares for mankind. Actions speak louder than words.

  • -God knows what I am made of. I do not have to prove myself to anyone but him.

    -No, I "preach" what I practice. The reason I preach the love, kindness, grace, redemption and peace of God is because every ounce of my body is filled with it.

    -Yes, on some level, it does. My walk with God is a lifestyle. I take God and represent my walk with him everywhere I go in my speech and actions. If I'm demonstrating and representing my faith to others in a way that cause another person to stumble or turn them off of Christ, then yes, it absolutely does matter.

    The truth of God sometimes is painful. It causes us to try to go against our human nature and forsake the detrimental ways that come so easy to us. However, the message of salvation, of what Jesus did when he died on the cross for us, is NOT offensive. If I offend someone sharing the message of Jesus, I do not consider myself to have been an effective influence.

  • How do you show yourself and God what you are made of?>> I don't show God anything because I don't believe in him.. I show myself many things. Take what you learn, there is a lesson in all life.

    Do you practice what you preach?>>> yes and no. Yes when it matters. But I've slipped a few times, and said a swear word in front of my DD, and tried to tell her not to repeat it. We can't always be perfect.

    Does it really matter what people think of your walk with God?>>>>nope, because I don't walk with any God because I dont' believe in any and I dont' care what people think of my beliefs because they are my own. beliefs are based of theories.. theories are not fact. So even though your beliefs may seem like facts to you, they aren't to another.

  • 1. Thankfully, I don't give a damn what any imaginary god thinks of me. 2. I donate to the Salvation Army and Cerebral Palsy because it makes sense and draws good karma and good feelings. 3. I buy dolls at yard sales and clean and dress them for the local Caring Ministries shop because I'm good at it and I enjoy it. 4. I put on puppet shows, free, for various organizations--libraries, clubs, schools, etc., because I'm good at it and it's fun for me AND my audiences. 5. I perform healing and helping spells as a witch, because they work for reasons beyond my understanding. 6. In conclusion, what I give out I get back three times over and I am a good person because it is to my advantage to be one. If this isn't good enough for you...well, I don't care what YOU think of me either!! LOL
