PRACTICING THE WORD-CENTERED LIFE

The relevant verses to this discussion can be found in Luke 4:16-20a;42-44.

"But he (Jesus) said to them, 'I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for I was sent for this purpose.'

How did you first become aware of the good news of the kingdom of God? Did you hear it proclaimed by a person, or did you read about it in the Bible?

I've almost always known - my parents began reading the bible to me when I was a newborn. When I was 4 I responded to an alter call at bible school. I'm still in the process of becoming saved (as I believe it's a lifelong journey), but the beginning of it all began almost as soon as I entered this world.

I'm about the same as Lydia. I'm not aware of a point I heard the good news, but it seemed to always be part of my experience. And I agree that becoming saved is a life-long journey.

I'd have to agree that "salvation" is more a process (eg, "work out your salvation") than an instant or moment in time, although many people do have that "deciding moment" experience and I do not want to discount that either. I suppose it is not either/or but both/and for many.

I was given religious training as a youngster but the notion of mystical experience took much longer to be grasped and sought after. And now the seeking just simply continues...I seem to alternate between thirst and stillness and am finally accepting it as part of my own personal journey.

Women Lie : Size DOES Matter

And if you've ever taken a girl home, gotten hot and heavy and then felt embarrassment and PANIC when you take off your pants and see the look of DISAPPOINTMENT on her face, you need to go check this out right now . . .

===> Don't Disapoint Her With Your Little Guy <=====

I'll tell you right now (and I've got proof), that anyone who tells you "size doesn't matter to women" is flat out lying to your face and trying to make you feel better . . .

Heck, just recently I asked a focus group of women via an anonymous online survey if size matters, and again and again they said "Oh my god, I HATE IT when it's SMALL."

For a long time I didn't know what to tell the guys who'd write in to me and ask how to get "bigger."

I'd say something lame like "Women actually like guys who are smaller . . . you just have to get good with your hands."

Then I found "THE BIBLE of Penis Enlargement" by this guy named John Collins . . .

===> They HATE It When It's Small <=====

What's crazy about this is that John has ACTUAL VIDEO PROOF that his stuff works . . .

He's got a literal mountain of testimonials from customers not just SAYING that they added 3 or even FOUR inches . . .

But actual VIDEOS that can't be faked.

I was 100% skeptical until I saw these vids, so even if you think it's "impossible" to get bigger (and there's no pills or suction devices or any of that crap) go check out the overwhelming proof on John's site.

P.S. There's absolutely nothing in the world that will make you smile as wide as pulling down your pants and seeing a look of AWE and ANTICIPATION on a woman's face. The first time you hear her say "It might be too big" in a soft, excited voice, you're going to feel a thrill through your spine like you just snorted 3 lines of cocaine.

If you aren't at least 7 inches you owe it to yourself (and to the women in your life) to check this out.
