    Can't have one without the other. Can you at least contribute something substantive to a discussion? One liners do not a rebuttal make. It matters not that you disagree with me. What matters is making a point and arguing your case with sound ideas. I'm open to a discussion about the merits of an idea. If it's not an honest and open discussion, then what is it? Name calling? Ridiculing? Insult throwing? That's just a waste of time.

    Ha!

    Remember who you are talking with and in which forum.

    I have nothing constructive to contribute, to be honest. I
    just want to see the world burn.

    It is burning.

    "Remember who you are talking with and in which forum."

    I honestly don't know a thing about you. You say you want to see the world burn. That tells me something, but what? That you're nihilistic? Bitter! Angry? Confused? Overwhelmed? I don't know what drives you.

    I have a verse this makes me think of. I hope you don't mind me sharing it.

    2 Corinthians 4:8,9
    We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
    Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

    The context from which it is taken bears some examination.

    I have another...

    Ecclesiastes 1:14
    I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind.

    Excellent. May I offer another?

    Ecclesiastes 12:13
    Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

    How about Ecclesiasites 3:1 ?

    There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens

    Also Ecclesiastes 8:15 kind of puts it all in perspective...

    So I commend the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life God has given them under the sun.

    Gotta keep a balanced approach.

    Ecclesiastes 12:14
    For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

    Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21

    The mind is like the hardware, and God's Word is the software. Romans 12: 2, in part, says, "...be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,.." Then, you might want to consider Psalm 19:7-9 where by the process of renewing the mind has it's benefits.

    "The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
    The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
    The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether."


    Without the "software" of God's Word transforming the soul one is by default relying on the outdated and corrupt software of the flesh and this world. God has a plan for your life, to transform you into the man He designed you to be, into the image of Christ, the new creature(creation). 2 Corinthians 5:17. Romans 8:29. Colossians 3:10.

    Consider 2 Timothy 3:16, 17.
    All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
    That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. (italics mine)

    The perfect balance.

    If that's what you want why don't you go back to Mexico instead of garbaging up nice Scandinavian countries? Looks like your homeland is going up in smoke all on it's own.

    Yes but Manson never had a RHP account where he could post and bring about true revolution like his follower Seitse can.
