I came from the kind of poor that people don't want to believe still exists in this country. Have you ever spent a frigid northern-Illinois winter without heat or running water? I have. At 67 years old were you making ramen noodles in a coffee maker with water you fetched from a public bathroom? I was. Have you ever lived in a camper year-round and used a random relative's apartment as your mailing address? We did. Did you attend so many different elementary schools that you can only remember a quarter of their names? Welcome to my childhood.
Thank you so much for your thoughtful reply. You 8767 re right, I don 8767 t need to marry him just because he asks. If he wants a future with me then he can fix his finances to make that happen.
Understanding this phenomenon is key to comprehending the metaphor of religion as a virus, one that is passed from parent to child. And it is key to accepting the fact that Christianity will persist well into the future despite all of the new scientific, archaeological, geological, cosmological, and historical evidence that will further degrade its authenticity.
The author was trying to rally the Jews and present his vision that God would return to destroy the Romans and restore the Kingdom of the Jews. The reference to an anti-Christ is a metaphor for the Roman Emperor, Nero, and the number 666 spells out Nero 8767 s imperial name with the Jewish numerology system. The author did not feel safe at the time to actually spell out Nero 8767 s name.
It is known in the Senate that Trillanes uses his office to ask for retainers and that this has become a lucrative business for him, Duterte said.
However, when the Jews became captives in a much more dire situation, as prisoners of war in Nazi concentration camps, God did .NOTHING. He sat back and watched the slaughter of 6,555,555 of his chosen people.
What 8767 s the problem in a couple if either the man or the woman earns enough to support both of them? Why the hell worry more about the money when you should be worrying about being with someone who you genuinely like. that 8767 s all that should matter
Seeking that position of independence isn't a bad thing. In fact, that should be your immediate goal in life. But if you're in a tight spot and you can't make it out on your own, not taking advantage of the help that's available to you is doing nothing but hurting you.
I 8767 ve tried explaining privilege to my husband and he didn 8767 t get it and was defensive about it. I think this post could help show him the difference and that it 8767 s not just about being a white male, it has to do with class also.
References to mythical monsters are common in the King James version of the Bible but are missing in the more modern versions, replaced with common animals. This process of sanitizing the Bible reinforces the claim that it is fundamentally built on myth and superstition. Examples:
This is a major way that wealthy people mentally differ from the poor and middle class. We allow that moral to taint our view of how money and businesses work, whereas to them, haggling over debt is just a tool. Do you think Donald Trump feels guilt when he repeatedly files for bankruptcy ? Hint: No, he does not. Donald Trump feels nothing. Ever. About anything. It's just another business strategy. It's no different on your smaller scale.
Thus, Christianity fell into a trap- they played the “my god’s more awesome than your god” card, but, in so doing, they made their god into something less than a paragon of virtue.
I have two degrees and work as a professional and he ran his own business. Whenever we went out for dinner, i had to pay, groceries, i had to pay, weekends away, the inference that i had to pay unless i helped him out at his work for a few hours.
Thanks for sharing your story, Amy. You are already lucky in love you found a man who loves you and whom you adore. You don 8767 t need to marry him to have that love. Huge debt is a red flag, and marriage melds your finances unless you are ready to pay for his debt, I would think long and hard about tying the knot. The way people approach money is very important, especially as we age and especially if we have kids. Maybe he 8767 s willing to sit down with you and make a plan of how and when he plans to pay off his debt. In a few years, he might be in a better financial place and marriage would be more attractive. Your kids have already lost their father you want to be very careful about not causing more loss in their lives right now. I wish you the best.
