Whats with “God as we understand Him”?

Good info for all people dealing with Addict lifestyles.

Chaz' journey back.

I hear ongoing concern and even debate over “God as I understand Him”.  For those not familiar with the 12 steps or AA, “God as I understand Him” comes from the wording in the third AA step.  Specifically, “Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood him”.

Those who have a clearly defined understanding or belief of who God is, appear often to find this challenging or offensive.  I suppose I understand.  Yet even among people of the same faith systems, do we not all know God only as we understand him?

Do any two Christians, Muslims, or Jews understand God the exact same way?  What about our various denominations, sects, and cultures of any major faith?  Do they not all have very distinct view of what they presume to be the same God?  Are there not members of major faith…

My brother Johns accomplishments!

A blog covering a variety of topics on greyhound racing and the industry.

0111 terrorist arrests

THE OTTAWA CITIZEN

The Ottawa twin brothers who both face terrorism-related charges are claiming to be members of the Algonquin First Nation, according to an APTN National News report.

The report cites sources as saying that Carlos and Ashton Larmond, 24, are “very proud” Algonquins, adding that “they believe they’re the first First Nation converts to Islam to have been charged under anti-terror laws in Canada.”

APTN also says the twins’ father, Anthony Larmond, claims his sons get their aboriginal heritage through his side of the family, although, as the report notes, he could not recall a First Nation community to which his family might be associated.

The Larmonds were charged in early January with several terrorism-related offences, including participation in the activity of a terrorist group, following their arrest by the RCMP.

At the time, their lawyer Joseph Addelman said his clients “intend to vigorously defend these allegations,” and that the…

One of the most devastating government “takings” in the history of the U.S. is in progress in Klamath County, Oregon.  This movement to get farmers and ranchers off their privately owned lands has been brewing for many years but came to a head after a sequence of events this spring and summer shut off long-time water rights and deprived landowners of their ability to irrigate or water their livestock.

This area in Oregon runs more than 100,000 head of cattle in the upper basin (above Klamath Lake—Oregon’s largest lake) during the summer, and is farming country in the irrigated land below the lake.  The water use for ranching and farming has had a convoluted history, which first gained national attention in 2001.  Using the Endangered Species Act at their tool, environmentalists, local tribes and federal authorities…
