This board is unique in its design and can be frustrating to use, but for this purpose the set-up is close to perfect. :)
The subject is, The Imagination of God Heaven
The idea is to associate whatever comes to mind when thinking of that.
For me, the next would be the Angels which surround the throne of God.
Then there would be lines shooting off in various directions for all of our great God's creation.

i love this!
this so cool
i went to the websight
i dont know why i thought it was too complicated
u picked quite a topic!
the imagination of GOD
im thinking of
before eternity past
just before HE creates the very first thing
just the three of the
loving and loving and holding each other in eternity
just looking into each others eyes
embracing each other
for zillions and zillions of years
and like a husband and wife
wanting to expand that love
needing to share what they have
it will require sacrifice
the GOD FAMILY who for eternity held each other with unfathomable love
and now something is set in motion
ONE is going to be ripped from the other TWO
once they create the first being
Teresa, grace and peace.
Joh 8:17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
Deu 19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.
Please allow me to be a second witness to Paul's post as I give a resounding AMEN !!!!!
This last series of comments break our Site Rules and Guidelines many times in many ways. This is not acceptable behavior. It is unbecoming to Christians and is not Christ-like. We wish for all our members to do better. Our rules are in place to help our members interact with others in the most Christ-like way possible. Even those members who think they are "right". :-)
First, you told us what another member is saying. You did not quote her. You put words in her mouth that she did not say. You publicized what you thought she was saying but not what she actually said. Since you are not her, you cannot possibly know what she is thinking. The best you can do is to rebut her actual quotes. But you did not provide any quotes. Putting words in her mouth with your interpretation on them is not acceptable or truthful. You did this repeatedly throughout your post. Doing this breaks Site Rules and Guidelines #7: "Don't put words in other people's mouths that they have never said. (This does not, of course, prohibit quoting their words from previous posts.)"
Second, you brought up information that was completely off the topic of this thread as a way to disparage another member, her credibility, and her ideas. There is no need to bring up your perception of another members views as shared in a different topic. Doing so breaks our rule 8: "Don't post on the public threads personal differences, arguments, old grudges, hearsay, private messages, etc." We at Adventist Online have no issue with you disputing anything you see as false. But please do so in the discussion thread where you see the false view expressed. If you have an issue with what is being discussed in this thread, then by all means post that here.
You said "So i got the idea that you are lost, and you need help." This breaks our rule 6: "Only rebut issues, NOT the people who write them. Do not negatively characterize others' positions or beliefs with your own value judgment. Simply state how you think the belief is wrong and what you believe the true interpretation is, while giving your basis for your belief."
You then proceeded to list instance after instance of what you see as the shortcomings of another member. None of these were loving. This breaks our foremost rule: "Be loving. Discuss issues with Christ-like love for your brothers and sisters here." They also break our very last rule 14: "If you ever feel justified for being negative or antagonistic toward another person... prayerfully see rule #1 and DON'T." It also breaks rule 4 ("Don't call names, make personal attacks, or use negative stereotypes against other people or groups of people.") and 5 ("No belittling of individual people, their character, or their motives.") We also don't need to point out your inability to do anything but "look on the outward appearance" so sinners judging other sinners is always problematic. We leave our judgement of salvation to God alone.
@Scott & @Mark:
Giving your support to a post with all the problems of the one outlined above is probably not wise or Christ-like. We would suggest you do not condone such behavior toward others - no matter how much you agree or disagree with the theology of those involved.
To all: Please, read our Site Rules and Guidelines again AND the basis scripture and SOP we have for them. Conforming to these site rules will help all of us act in a more Christ-like way.
May God bless us in all our discussions here and help us to always reflect Him.
