Well now, I see Golf, and Reaper, and ol' Satanus himself is talkin on my Christmas lights thread bout huggin a damn tree eh?
Golf....I liked your point, but from a christian point of view....if adultry was clean in the eyes of a christian, god would still abhor it. I know what you meant though
My wife still practices Electro-Acupuncture, even though a number of Christians think its from the Devil.
We had a sister in the hall who was always into things like you mentioned. She also did Kineasyology (spelled way wrong). She was always counciled for being involved in the unknown medical practices and told pretty much to stick to known and recognised methods of healing and to quit messing with weird stuff.
The witnesses have always been big on demonizing anything that is not understood fully;eg; esp, psycics,etc. Looking back on all their old medical beliefs... maybe they feel they are not falling for a miracle wheat scam, or aluminum scare anymore
You mentioned Yeshua is in the trees and you and your wife can feel he and the father in them and other created things. This seems to differ from Christs teachings. The only tree he dealt with I can remember was one he cursed........the fig tree. He never mentioned hugging trees or the like to get close to him. He did it through prayer, the spirit, and his indwelling within the believer who was in him,(christ.) If he will talk to you through a tree......why would he not he answer me when I prayed and begged him for answers at one period in my life and doesn't seem to answer many others here on this board?
