Admitting it is the first step.

I feel like the description has fit me for a long time. From before my re-conversion. Probably from before my de-conversion as well. That was 13 years ago though so I may be wrong about the de.

Amen!
I'm glad scientists are finally catching up to what Isaiah knew thousands of years ago.

Isaiah 26:3
3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Didn't read the whole thing, didja?

Toronto University released a statement on the study.

""Obviously, anxiety can be negative because if you have too much, you're paralyzed with fear," he says. "However, it also serves a very useful function in that it alerts us when we're making mistakes. If you don't experience anxiety when you make an error, what impetus do you have to change or improve your behaviour so you don't make the same mistakes again and again?" "


Most failed suicide bombers said they felt a calm like "nothing else" right before they thought they were gonna blow themselves up. What else has the power to make someone feel that way?

Can't speak for a nut job suicide bomber, but I know from experience that the same One who keeps me at peace is the same One Who takes care of me and guides me.

I'm like the little boy who doesn't worry too much about crossing the busy intersection as long as Daddy has hold of my hand. If he were to let go, then there would be anxiety.

My Father promised He would never leave me nor forsake me.

Then take the bomber's word for it like I take yours. He had an experience that I will probably never have, a moment of glorious divinity. Untold peace that, as you've said yourself, I and those like me; The Vessels of Wrath will never experience. You understand the suicide bomber better than I do.

And when He tells you how to vote you have the peace of mind of.....a suicide bomber.

You do not take my word for anything. You question all of it. Do you not?

Now you get it. You don't believe the bomber, the bomber doesn't believe you, and I don't believe you or the bomber all for the exact same reasons.

I think... that it has less to do with personality and more to do with surrounding culture. Not sure if that's the best choice of words? My point, if you adopt a child from a muslim country and raise him from an infant in a Christian home, then he would likely be a Christian..... and vise versa. I hope I understood the OP correctly?

Nature Vs. Nurture.

Turns out it's a fair mix of both. See: "Twin Studies nature vs. nurture".

https://www.livescience.com/47288-tw...-genetics.html

http://www.medicaldaily.com/nature-v...e-human-334686

https://www.today.com/health/effect-...america-t27946

http://www.npr.org/2007/10/25/156290...ure-vs-nurture

I heard about a study where they found out that the older the twins got, the more alike they were, despite being separated.
