My concern is that people coming to these forums to learn about the United Church of Christ may get the impression that Gary's writings are representative of what the UCC believes.

They're not - though, in fairness, the UCC is so diverse as to make that an impossibility anyway.

Here's what the national setting of the United Church of Christ says about What We Believe: http://www.ucc.org/about-us_what-we-believe

UCC Café / Being called - is it a delusion?
« on: December 16, 2014, 07:52:00 PM »
I've been reading lately about delusion disorder - especially grandiose type - and wondering about how often a sense of call to ministry might be delusion disorder. How would one know the difference?

I guess that's why there are things like "Student in Care" and "Member in Discernment": to determine whether this sense of call is unique to the person or whether it's recognized by the community.

Still, the symptoms of delusion disorder, grandiose type are very similar to that of a call:


Quote
According to the DSM-IV-TR diagnostic criteria for delusional disorder, grandiose-type symptoms include grossly exaggerated belief of:

    self-worth
    power
    knowledge
    identity
    exceptional relationship to a divinity or famous person.

 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grandiose_delusions

Something for me to think about.

The name of the series is easy.

The name of the episode is harder because I really disliked that series.

The cowasaki is weird - why is it wearing shoes?

Interesting, today, I get right in, and so far no adds or lady asking me to take a questionaire about why I read my posts, so far, no commercial offerings of lady's beauty products.  I am however being interrupted by a pop up to watch videos.  Evidently the harassment continues.  They are attempting to irritate me Lord, pleas "sic 'em" !!!!


Ah, I see.

This is all consistent now. Gary, your desktop is infected with malware. That's why you see pop-up ads and surveys. That's why you sometimes have trouble connecting to the forums.

You need to run MalwareBytes, or Spybot S&D, or Microsoft Essentials, or other anti-malware software to rid your computer of these problems.

Your desktop is possessed by digital demons, and they must be exorcised.

Well, this is interesting, the church is trying to use my posts to sell stuff.  It is probably an attempt to run off my readers Sic 'em God ~!~

You mean the spam? You realize anyone can register here and post, right? And that every forum gets link spam like this, right?

And with "Richard's last post, he or someone influenced by Him has decided I shouldn't return, my desktop is still trying to get in to the forum.

Or your desktop is just not connecting to the forums because of a hardware or software issue. I deal with this type of thing daily, and I haven't seen one case of someone taking over another person's computer to keep them from posting things to the internet. Oh, it's possible, and it does happen, but generally not for a minor forum like this.

On the other hand...

Richard? Are you or one of your minions blocking Gary's posts? If so, please stop doing so. That's uncalled for. If not, well, my apologies.

And yes, please, everyone who reads Gary's posts, please flood ucc.org with requests to have him back - maybe even on the main ucc.org site. And post them here, too, so we can see we were wrong.

If God were to post in a Church web forum, he surely wouldn't pick this one, given his own Son's advice against hiding your light under a bushel.

Q: If an electric train is heading north, which way would the steam be coming out?

Depends on the wind - and whether they're cooking in the dining car.

does your browser block this too?



"_http://www.jokesgallery.com/Pic/hans30parking9.jpg_"

Yes.

I think our "internet appliance" blocks the whole site.

It also blocks Howard Brown Health Center and Lesbian COmmunity Cancer Project as "Lesbian and Gay Interest."


I see it now. It looks like people with disabilities get the pole position!

Almost no one visits anymore. I'm Facebook friends with some of the past regulars, and have tried to get people to come back. They say it's basically become Gary's private blog, and they're not interested.

The bulk of the "reads" of any of the posts on the site are automated reads by search engine indexing spiders (Google, Bing, etc.), e-mail harvesters for spam, and the like.

When no one comments, no one is engaged.

OTOH, if I'm wrong, someone reply to this thread and tell me how much you appreciate the daily Bible study.
