« on: February 21, 2007, 07:25:44 PM »
As they say lent iz ah time for Christians to  fast for  forty days and forty nights ,from 6. 00 am to 6.00pm . stay away from meat , have pure thought flowing through your mind  constantly.go to church an get yuh ash on yuh forehead . no partying , drinking , no calypso muzik,and at the end of lent you make ah Judas poor and hang it by the neck on ah tree and beat the day light out ah it .poor Judas  he kah dead becaz every year at the end of lent they would beat him,and after all that fasting and prayin yuh kah wait for easter to come quick enough to start partyin and doing the same old thing again until that time come again and yuh start the rotein all over again.

yuh musbe Baptist  :D

but Lent is not really about giving up tings although that is a common practice.

Lent is a time to reaffirm yuh faith in Christ.  Many people believe that to do so, yuh have to go into self denial, repentance, fasting ect.  Because these practices usually cause yuh to hallucinate and I suppose, in that state, you come to some kind a self realization.  The North American Natives would deprive their bodies to the point where dey would have spiritual visions.

I believe that to reaffirm your faith, you do not have to give up anything.

As long as you find time to focus on the goal of reaffirmation.

I know of one priest whose Lenten practice was to go to a movie at least once a week.  In watching the movies, he would study human behavior and eventually get closer to a spiritual awareness and god

Anyway .. not everybody is believe what I juss say and would call me a heretic .. it has no strong basis in traditional theology.

So I going to have a Guinness and reflect on my spirituality  :beermug:

man where you was with dat statement when i was starving mehself for 40 days every year ;D ;D

I believe in that statement big time
I believe it is more of giving up of things that have no redeeming qualities...like
cigarettes, alcohol (buss head from some) and foods that may add to bad health.
Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.

I think that people who "give up" tings have a false sense of security . . after all, if they gave up smoking or booze or extra-marital affairs , dat means dey will be forgiven of their sins.  Is like going to church every Sunday and being there only in body and not in Sprit

give yourself a pat on the back for making and following through on that move. My dad started smoking at a VERY early age and a few yrs back he just quit cold turkey.. hopefully this means we will have him around much much  longer.

Every time I go get my wife at work I'm blown away by the number of hospital staff I see huddled in a corner (minus 30 C temp) to take that drag. These people see the effects everyday and yet they chance it by smoking.

again..good move quitting!
