I'd like to hear some opinions...

Of course for me, I'd choose something that will benefit me in the afterlife, but I'm still not sure. One of the fruits/gifts of the Holy Spirit probably...

---
Oops, I think this would've been better off in the "Off topics" section. Oh well.

1. unity - which imo includes peace, love, etc.
2. healing for all
3. The full presence of the Lord reigning as he says he will.

1.  To end all schisms of the Church.
2.  To remove a particular "thorn on my back" so to speak.
3.  To remove the excess weight that I have (either that or at least help me not struggle through the P90X program I'm doing....it's killing me Lord!).

I wouldn't want anything like special knowledge or a strong faith. I think the struggle along the way is an important part of life. It's a fun part of life as well. To a lot of things I have to say "I don't know" at this point in my life, and frankly, I like it better that way. Not that I value ignorance; rather, I just value the thrill of the hunt for truth. So, what does that leave me with? My wishes would be rather worldly...

1. I want enough money mystically put in my bank account that I could live off it for the rest of my life. I live in a rather rural area where the cost of living is low, so even a million dollars should be able to cover me for the next 30-50 years I'll be alive.

2. A reliable car that would last me the rest of my life, and which would never break down. I don't care what kind of car, or what color (as long as it's not pink Tongue ).

3. Ok, these are wishes from God, so anything is possible, even for a bloke like me! So, for my third wish, I want a shot at marrying Michele Lepe. Just a shot, that's all I ask. Grin

Why? Saying that wars of choice (which are all wars the USA is waging, because all of them are on the territory of sovereign nations that never attacked the US) are evil and should be stopped - that cannot be taken seriously?

My three wishes?

1). To be wise like Him.
2). To love like Him.
3). More wishes.

In that order.

The problem is that you are always talking about this. Over and over and over. Then you make ridiculous statements like the last one in which you said you want to see the previous vice president executed. I mean, come on, this is a light-hearted "three wishes" thread and you had to go there. I have no problem with your pacifism (even though it is silly) but your later statements are unacceptable.

laugh I love the cold though.  If funds suffice, maybe I can head to Northern Europe for the summer.  Sure it isn't "cold" then, but anything to escape the 30s, 40s and humidity of here.
