Amigos y Amigas - mcarmichael - 11-04-2014

Hello again.
Honestly didn't intend to offend, I was very drunk.
Maybe tomorrow will be a better day.

As Hemmingway said, "Write drunk, edit sober."

Always edit before you post. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Stephen King wrote most of his work while he was drunk.

He wrote a great book about it called "On Writing".

I read his "Dark Tower" series, but I wasn't impressed with the ending.

"On Writing" is a good read, nonetheless.

Shlama:
I think it's best not to flaunt any addictions here. If prayer is needed and you would like to express your deep concerns, post discreetly on the prayer page.

Hi Stephen.

I was not aware that it was such a sensitive issue. It's very much a part of my culture, we all agree a cold beer tastes great pretty much, although perhaps some of us take it to an unhealthy extreme.

So, I apologize if my behavior here has been a disgrace to you, and thank you for saying so.


Re: Amigos y Amigas - Thirdwoe - 11-06-2014

I've never liked the taste of beer, cold or otherwise...even when I wasn't a Christian...cold water, or some natural fruit juice on the other hand are real treats.

While drinking a beer or a glass of wine is not prohibited in Scripture, to drink to excess i.e. getting drunk is a huge no can do. And for very good reasons.

The practice of being/getting drunk (a drunkard) is a very serious sinful practice according to God, and must be repented of if one is engaging in it, and one which the Holy Scriptures warns us, that doing so, will prevent us from enjoying Eternal Life in the Kingdom of God. ---> Not to be taken lightly, no matter what the worldly culture might do.

Shlama Friends:
Please understand the tenor by which I have raised the caution flag. For many people, both saints and sinners, alcohol used in moderation is enjoyed. Know your own limits. The Holy Scriptures do not forbid the drinking of alcohol and good food, singing and dancing, laughing and unwinding from life's labours and the associated stress that we all experience daily. I'm not a prohibitionist. I am aware however, that the world is a volatile place and the stench of moral decay permeates the air.
This site is considered a holy place for many members. Let's not lose sight of this even for a moment. Before you post on the forum consider what you have committed to writing. Even a fool is considered wise when he holds his peace.

I don't know, I mean sure I explore some controversial topics, and maybe sometimes act funny, but don't you think "fool" is a bit harsh?

I must say, I'm at a bit of a disadvantage here, the last thing I remember was something about Bob Marley. I'm not 100% what I did ultimately to get myself banned. The Bob Marley thing had to have been around 6AM, and then I crashed on the couch shortly after. "The Bob Marley thing" (anyone who may have missed it) is an interview with the Ethiopic cleric who baptized Bob Marley; and then I asked something about 1 Enoch I think. I awoke the next morning and I had premonition (statistical sense) that I'd made a mistake. It's perhaps what they call "selective amnesia", and then I couldn't sign on and none of my posts showed up.

So if anyone wanted to let me in on "what happened" exactly, perhaps in a private message, that might help.

Re: Amigos y Amigas - Thirdwoe - 11-07-2014

I have a good idea, just move on to something interesting and edifying to talk about regarding the Aramaic Bible...The Peshitta. <!-- s:bigups: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/bigups.gif" alt=":bigups:" title="Big Ups" /><!-- s:bigups: -->

I'm not any kind of Aramaic Scholar, however I did live in San Luis Obispo, CA once.

San Luis Obispo, CA is a unique location. Strawberries grow in all seasons and hummingbirds galore.

The chef scene is above average and it's incredibly underpopulated.

If I had $1000 to buy a ticket, however, I'd probably go hump it in NZ.

Southern Hemisphere, and that.

In the meanwhile, I'm feeling okay again. Or "normal" maybe.


Re: Amigos y Amigas - Thirdwoe - 11-11-2014

You can start to learn. We all started at one point, because we were interested in the subject. That is why we are here, and why this forum is here. Lets get to learning more about it. What do ya say?


Re: Amigos y Amigas - mcarmichael - 11-11-2014

I suppose I'd pick it up if I became Assyrian, but until then I can only guess at the pronunciation, and I'm 100% certain that the meaning escapes me.

Almost like Greek.


Re: Amigos y Amigas - mcarmichael - 11-11-2014

My point is Aramaic will never be my first language. It's an interesting perspective but I'm not aware of any discrepancies.

I'm curious why half of Daniel is Aramaic. How's that?


Re: Amigos y Amigas - Thirdwoe - 11-13-2014

How's that? Because at the time the book of Daniel was written, Aramaic was the main language around. Plus Daniel was living in exile in Babylon at the time...where Aramaic was the language of the people. From the time of the Assyrians and the Babylonians conquered the Israelite's, the Hebrew language took a back burner to the Aramaic language, which began to be the front burner lingo they used.

Jesus and all His Disciples spoke the Aramaic language, and the NT was 1st written in it, so it's good to know what they originally said, and how they said it.
