    Acts 9:26–27

    Paul wrote half of the New Testament, after being a freakin' nightmare
    for the persecuted Christians. But Paul would not have even made it if
    it was not for Barnabas.

    When Paul tried to approach the apostles they were, obviously, kind of
    uncool about the idea of hanging out with a dude who weeks before was
    chopping Christian heads off.

    But Barnabas stood up for the guy. He felt in his spirit to believe that
    Paul (formerly known as "Saul" ) was not a player anymore, but that he
    had turned his heart towards Jesus. And he took the risk of interceding
    for him with his crew.

    Who remembers Barnabas today? Few. But let me tell you something:
    Paul would tell you that, right after Jesus, the coolest dude is Barnabas
    because he was a true friend.

    Be like Barnabas today. Intercede for someone to succeed in life.

    should this not perhaps be in spirituality, which is in dire need of spiritual content at the moment. Saying that the sentiments are universal and may be well received here in general.

    It is a general thought for encouraging.

    I do not wish to debate anything spiritual but
    to share love. Spirituality is for nutcases, just
    like debates. General is for us, the patzers
    and laypeople.

    To the original poster:

    Is this thread about the ACTS of Paul, c.f. Gascoine in the F.A.Cup final that he cried about, after being dead, strechered off, and then 3 days later signing for a different religion?

    Or is it the one about the ACTS of Paul, c.f. Daniels, who was a master of magic with his wife Debbie, and ressurected himself continually for 3 days on the run, before hitting the point where he couldn't open his rock door?

    I don't know too many dinosaurs called Paul, but these two came to mind.

    What say ye? 😉

    touchy touchy touchy catfooddim! well dont take it to spirituality, but for goodness sake, try and refrain from telling people what to do, especially those over whom you have no jurisdiction. It makes you appear like a control freak.

    hehe, yes the paradox was apparent that's why i changed it to 'try to refrain', which is much more like a piece of advice rather than an imperative. 😀
