Unread post

According to a recent study by the Baylor Institute for Studies of Religion, 20 percent of Americans believe that the living can communicate with the dead. In an online survey of 10,000 Beliefnet members, 77 percent said they'd felt the presence of a spirit, angel or dead soul.Angels and Ghosts!!!Oh my...Mr. P. Mr. P's place. I warned you!!!The one thing of which I am positive is that there is much of which to be negative - Mr. P.The pain in hell has two sides. The kind you can touch with your hand; the kind you can feel in your heart...Scorsese's "Mean Streets"I came to kick ass and chew Bubble Gum...and I am all out of Bubble Gum - They Live, Roddy Piper

Have you heard about the Jinn? They are a creation of spirits that are not like the Angels. The Angels are always obedient but the Jinn in which Satan is one of, are capable of disobedience. They are the spirits that play games with people and people usually think they are ghost or in some cases they may let someone think they have channeled some sort of superior consciousness but in reality they are these sometimes dangerous spirits called the Jinn. Consider thesign of Harry Houdini who said: "If Ican communicate to you from theother side I will"Now this man wanted to prove theother side and year after year no oneheard anything from this dead masterescape artist. yet you believe your oldsick relative who couldn't even escapetheir own sickness is talking to younow, when they barely spoke to youwhile they were alive. That is whythose who say they spoke to the deadonly know what55they knew and nothing else sowho did the speaker speak to? Iassure you he spoke to somethingelse.A message in fragments likesomeone trying to remember likesomeone trying to collect theirthoughts as in the way that afriend can be close to you andknow a lot about you, exceptSatan is not your friend he isyour avowed enemy. That devilbelieves in keeping his enemycloser than a friend keeps afriend. Certainly, if one can havean enemy closer than a friend hehas no friend, am I right?

Was that post sarcastic Asana? Cause that was irritating. I itched my shoulder 3 times... Turn that "fog" post into a "hershey bar" post... something that we're able to bite onto instead of intangible junk. Let's see a few references to reality.

No, Interbane, Asana isn't being sarcastic. He is a new addition to BookTalk and we're all trying to figure the guy out.

Asana believes in Jesus and the djinn at the same time.I really doubt other Christians would accept this about him.They call people like that 'heretics.' Where taxi drivers never stop talking

I thought dijinn were part of the muslim faith?My friend said his uncle in the ME once picked up a hitch hiker with horse legs which is suposedly the mark of a dijinn. Apparently he dumped her on the side of the road. I think his car was leaking exhaust.
