If you ask you will recieve.

Post by jumbojava on Fri Jul 31, 2009 1:38 pm

I asked. I recieved.

And I'm not Christian.

But that lil bit of info seems to get some Christains panties in a bunch; 'God would never purposely tell you to choose a non-Christian faith!!!'

Well why not....?

interesting question.

I too asked and have always been blessed with a good response. Not a Christian either.

It is something many Christians obviously not all of them, can not wrap their heads around, that their god may indeed love them, but is not interested in those who are not his.

That is fine and dandy no problem, I have different gods. Mine love me. I love them. All is as it should be. Smile

When I was in the middle of my separation, . . . I ASKED and ASKED God to do something to allow the marriage to be reconsiled. I was doing everything a christian should do, and doing it honestly and sincerely. I ended up divorced.

Yeah, . . .a very good question, jumbojava.

Glad you think so, MC.

It frequently leaves them sputtering, "But...but...but..." and little else.

You know, people speaking for god has always been part of the thing that bugged me about evangelical christianity. It always seemed that what the person wanted and what god wanted meshed perfectly, some how. scratch

It's funny how that is. Smile

Of course, many parents seem to have what they want and what god wants mesh perfectly, too.

Its not just a Christian thing, about ask & you shall receive. Really it isn't.

The twist is what happens when you ask & you DON'T receive? Ah huh! Well god didn't want to answer, it wasn't time to answer, wrong question or wish, wasn't worded right. You don't need it. Blah, Blah, Blah.
In magic/spells, in positive energy circles, in Eastern religions, this has been debated & talked about since the beginning of its concept.
The book "The Secret" was in the midst of the flurry of books being written about this same subject.

Yes, and "The Secret" borrowed liberally, even its name, from The Secret of the Ages, a much more complete New Thought viewpoint on the Law of Attraction, brought to you free by TED at http://tigerseyedowsing.com/ds/other/robert_collier.html .

You ask and receive not; because you ask amiss to consume it among your lust.

You're against consuming things while you are having sex?

Speaking of consuming, I briefly re-befriended an old girlfriend last year while she was going through HPV and cervix cancer. I asked if the doc found my watch while he was up there. After she hit me (while laughing) I said 'What? I wanted it back!'

If you don't ask, you sure won't receive - or get it back!

It's true, you can't take me anywhere. When this same girl was 17 (though looked a lot younger than that) we were shopping at a souvenier shop where they sold whips. As I bought one I asked a few questions about them and the store worker said he wasn't too familiar with whips, to which I said "You don't know what you're missing!" She turned 4 shades of red and dragged me out the door.

*shrugs*

Something similar happened to me and my husband when we were dating. We were at a medieval fair....I was so embarrassed I wanted to sink into the floor!

I was actually trying to hide behind my husband and the clerk was trying to get me to come out.....I think my face was starting to turn shades of purple from embarrassment by the time I ran out of the shop! LOL

I believe that if we ask (for whatever) out of purely selfish reasons we certainly CAN receive- and I think most anyone with bad experience in magic or energy can agree with me on that.
