Recognizing that I am a sinner in need of a Saviour, I am grateful for the Grace (God's free gift) of God to give me the promise of eternal life with Him just if I believe on the finished work of his Son, on behalf of me. So, in answer to your question, my answer is YES for secular things....but NO for Salvation, because I need God's help to secure that.
If there's anybody here who doesn't simply assume that we Longs are powerless to help ourselves, feel free to e-mail my good buddy fud.fighter2 at his Yahoo address so that we can kick one or two ideas around.
It would be on a confidential one-to-one basis - I've corresponded with a number of INSM Longs in the past on that basis.
It's pointless discussing such matters on a public board very likely monitored by those who have been profiting from the manipulation all these years.
For those same reasons you'd have to be willing to trust me with a non-Yahoo address (I would reciprocate) so that I know to whom I'm talking.
If a Long who is interested already knows my main address please e-mail me there.
OK. I would never try to initiate a discussion on religion, because I'm absolutely certain that nothing I could contribute would be helpful to a believer.
But I am curious as to the manner in which belief translates to everyday situations. If I remember correctly you recently put up a post about Easter, which promptly disappeared. If I'm correct, this would call for the "turn the other cheek" response.
Do you also feel it's right to turn the other cheek when the usual suspects seize the opportunity of negligible demand for the shares at a time when the biotech sector is experiencing a major sell-off to walk the share price down by 40% in less than two weeks from a price which was already substantially undervalued?
