How do I even know if the soul exists? What if there is no afterlife and this is all there is because God doesn't seem to interact with us anymore? Might as well have as much fun in this life as I can instead of wasting it all away working towards something that won't happen right? Unless God gave me full reassurance that there is something better after death, then I don't think I can listen to what you said.

I was watching a video by Br. Nathanael and in the related videos I found one by a fellow named Jediahbahaza, and he had proof that in the next 4 years, if Romney wins, that the US is going to replace our currency with something called "Jew bucks," and only Jewish-owned banks will have special protection, and if we don't return to the gold standard and put the gold back in fort knox the zionists are going to easily conquer this country from within. He had all sorts of evidence for this, showing that Jews control the media and banks, and that whites have been slowly pushed out of these areas, and of course Hollywood has helped cover this up by promoting movies by people like Mel Brooks. I also heard on another of his videos that they are going to replace jewelry with something called jewry, which I guess is sort of like that cubix zarconia stuff only not as good.

Vote Obama!

They figured out strike-outs ages ago Asteriktos. Use a forward slash between each letter: /. Be sure not to use a backslash, \, because leftists like myself can't help themselves from using it and the powers that be already have the interspersed backslash covered.You will be safe for a few more hours heeding my advice and I hope you make good use of it.

Smart.

Invest and set aside for taxes. I would pay off debt for my self and my family, then I would buy a new car, a home, a graduate degree/language education, and either a political group or a non-profit to give me a chance to work there on some projects to help people, and make sure dress well for occasions I would make sure I had to mingle with classy men, and maybe by a soccer or basketball team.

Half of it I'd use for investments in various stocks, commodities, exchange trader funds, and mutual funds to increase my wealth. A quarter of it I'd use for myself, my friends, and my family. The other quarter I'd give out as donations.

I always dreamt when someone won $350 million all by themselves, if that would happen to me, I'd play a game to see how fast I could get rid of most of it.  I'd take care of my mother and brother and then give at least a million to my parish and then to our Consistory I'd give for the many charities they have.  I'd support all our seminarians.  All my friends who are suffering financially I'd give a million.  Then I'd give to many charities I have a fondness for.  And I'd keep just enough to have my own place and take care of all the needs that would come with that.

When I was growing up there was a TV series called "The Millionare".  The man would give a stranger a check for $1 million, tax free.  What a wonderful way to spend the remainder of my live on earth.

He went into the desert for forty days and suffered hunger , thirst and more than any man before.

THEN THE DEVIL DID ALL HE COULD TO TEMPT HIM. I believe you are not quite thinking this thru.

Also what he suffered when he was beaten and crucified is more than most men can even contemplate.

He took all sin upon himself which is to say he felt all of our pain and suffering in all humanity, and he still does this for us.

I do not think you have unduly idealised it. It is a way of life (and an aesthetic) that I have come to prefer, though I am sure it is to everyone's taste.

I enjoy the gold in the wall/screen paintings -- reminds me of our iconography.
