Proverbs of Truth (typed into a word.doc on June 16th, 2008 soon after it was written)

God came up with these proverbs while I was commenting on a friend's blog just a moment ago so I just went with the flow and here's what he came up with. I'm not sure if any of these are in the book of Proverbs but I will check to see later. I hope you enjoy them.

No man has the truth except for those who have received it and is guarded by the one who gave it.

Only those who have laid down their life for it, can see it.

Truth is not of this world but it exposes this world for what it is and leaves it naked and exposed for those who understand it.

Truth was never intended for those who aren't truthful. Lies are their nature.

Truth has the right to condemn those who don't have it.

Truth is the justice that mere man cannot conceive. The injustice man does, keeps him from it.

Life is chaotic to those who don't bear it, but is understood by those who do.

One can never know what truth really is until he has it. Then he will understand that its true.

Nobody can buy the truth because its not for sale. It is freely given to those who ask for it.

What you see is not always the truth because your eyes deceive you and your ears don't hear.

Truth is the righteousness that excludes men. Not to be seen until they are righteous.

Truth is more precious than gold, and gold is more precious than silver. A miner of truth will tell you that.

Give a man the truth and he will know your heart but don't trust a man without it.

Truth wasn't made for man's eyes because he is blind. Without his blindness he will see the truth.

Truth is not what you think it is, it's what you know it is.

Truth can't be defined in man's laws, because there's no truth in man.

Truth is freedom for those who lay down and die. Then they can live with the truth.

Truth avoids those who look for it but when it finds you, you will no longer look for it.

Give a man the truth and it will no longer be true.

Do you need more reasons than this to explain the deceit that's going on today?

It was impossible for me to have written these proverbs last week before God finally gave me the truth this past weekend. I would have never understood them. My testimony supports the fact that God is living in me and I am living in Him. His word is true and the truth sets us free.

Praise God and bless his Holy name, his word is the truth,
Brad

You aren't one of those who comes on here claiming that God mysteriously and supernaturally spoke to you, are you? There have been dozens on here who made the same absurd claim - and as far as I could tell, every one of them contradicted the other one! One of them never received any revelations during the week: he worked and had to stay sober. But, oh my! On Saturday night, he got revelations galore - after a few six-packs and a joint.

Brad believes God has shown him that he will be killed by a Christian, annanicole, which is just awesome, lol.

Brad, to be honest, I only understand you intermittently, but it's just that some of the stuff you say is so relevant to me, and at this point of time too, that there just has to be something there as far as I'm concerned. I mean, even this post again, 'Only those who have laid down their life for it, can see it,' holds such import for me that it's unreal, and I've only read this of you after already becoming terribly interested in you. Again, you're like the older version of me at the least, but even then I'm not sure that could very adequately explain how interested I became in what you were saying so fast as I did. I look forward to more posts dude.

tulle, I'm sorry you don't interest me very much as you are, but trying to beat down what does interest me to compensate is just pretty crazy :P This dude is actually fascinating :P

Now be fair, you can't expect him to be consistent as well. I give him big brownie pts for typing on a keyboard with his sleeves tied behind his back. I think that his nurses should also be commended. BTW borno how will anyone know if the shooter is a christian or not. And just so you know he has been telling this story for years and the date of his demise keeps getting put further back with every year that passes. Funny that.

I was not aware that God informs people of things like that. Why didn't He warn all the 9-11 victims that they would be killed by Muslims?

I don't interest you so much that you feel the need to response with inane garbage every time I say something. Of course you'd find this fascinating--because it's completely insane and contradictory, and goes very well with your delusions of grandeur, psychosis, and whatever drugs you're on.

I point out a valid contradiction in the OP (one of many) and post a question mark, hoping for the original poster to elucidate, and somehow you find a way to respond to me with your insane garbage. Yes, I'm the one with a need for control when you think you're Christ or something. GTFO and stop fvcking talking to me, you pathetic piece of sh!t. And if I get banned for insulting some loser @ss alcoholic druggy who never goes to sleep and instead stays up all night to post insane garbage about his supposed knowledge and awakening, I don't fcvking care. You should be lobotomized.

It's just something to do with the workings of things, or so Brad says anyway. Do you think you're so ultimately sensible as to decry such a happening as false?

I'm sure Marshall Applewhite's followers felt the same way...

I'm sure the responses of his followers to criticism of Applewhite was also a similar "Still, though".

This might be unfair of me towards Borno so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, but some of the things he has said are a bit questionable and the fact that he hasn't replied to my questions leads me to doubt the validity of his statements and his ability to defend them.

The beauty of everything he's saying is that there can't be any gain in it for him, though. He's either just crazy or honest. Have a watch of a few of his videos; they're actually rather interesting.

Some people just enjoy this kinda thing. That's what is in it for them.

One can believe they are honest, while also being crazy. I'm not making any kind of evaluation on the mental health of this member yet. Though I can evaluate if what they say sounds crazy pretty quickly.

I did watch the videos. I have a vested interest in knowing exactly who is using the site so when he posted his full name to the forums I did a thorough web search right away. My opinions on him are entirely from what I discovered.

The thing that sticks out to me most is the messianic claim, which is all I have been probing about. I really am fascinated by it honestly.. not because I think it's true (obviously far from it), but because I want to understand how a person justifies that to them self... but he's been intentionally vague and unresponsive, so I have just wasting my time.
