    “I’d have to talk my parents about it though… not sure how they’d feel about me meeting up with some random guy I met on the internet. ” Ya, probily a good idea XD My parents are really chill so I’m pretty sure they would be cool with it ; D Aw man, I want snow so badly!!!

    Hey, no worries! I’m glad we are on the same page now. 😀

    well I was saying from a materialistic perspective

    Oh, sorry if I misunderstood you. But yeah, now that makes sense…I wasn’t quite sure where you were coming from.

    However, quick question, do you belive ‘being made in the image of God’ is more then having spirit and if so, why?

    Yes, I think I would say that being made in the image of God is more than just having a spirit. Being made in the image of God means being eternal, living beings that have a will and a conscience. We have the choice between right and wrong and we have an eternal destination. Why do I believe this? Um, because the Bible tells us that we are made in the image of God and all the above mentioned things are things that God possesses. Does that answer your question?

    ok… so do you belife part of ‘who you are’ is your character and you unique personality or no? Cuz I would be inclined to believe thats there’s more to our identity then just ‘Christian’ and that the unique way God created each of us plays a very large role in awnsering the question ‘who am I’. Would you disagree?

    Well, I didn’t say that our identity was “Christian”…there’s a difference between having an identity as a Christian and having our identity in Christ. But yes, I would agree that our character and personality are a part of who we are; each of us are made by God, unique and different, beautiful in our own way. But the most important thing is that our identity is in Christ, because if it isn’t than we are going to end up feeling depressed and worthless.

    But would you mind telling me how you” know that there is a difference between your brain and your mind

    Well, I see it this way: the brain is physical and the mind is spiritual. But I’m not completely decided on this. 😛 I’m not a neurosurgeon and I’m not a theologian or anything like that so I can’t say with perfect authority that this belief about the mind/brain is truth and this other belief is false.

    Yes, I remember quite well the lengthy posts that you and @wordsmith wrote. 🙃

Being made in the image of God means being eternal, living beings that have a will and a conscience. We have the choice between right and wrong and we have an eternal destination. ” Ok cool! I mean, we could have a ‘does freewill exist’ discussion (which I’m game for but I know your not so, @anyone else, if you feel prepared to attempt to awnsers my questions about the existence of freewill please chime in!) but I think I’m content to leav it at that… thanks for sharing your opinion! : D

    “But the most important thing is that our identity is in Christ, because if it isn’t than we are going to end up feeling depressed and worthless.” I 100% agree (though I will add, in my own life, its much easyer said then done XD)

    “Well, I see it this way: the brain is physical and the mind is spiritual. But I’m not completely decided on this.” ok cool! well, I’ll let you go now ; D thanks for talking to me!

    Haha, yeah, I think I’ll pass on that one. 😛 I don’t really have time for it. All I am gonna say that God controls the future but we still have free will. It’s confusing, I know, but I believe that’s what the Bible says.

    Yes! It is very hard to live in Christ, but it’s also extremely fulfilling. And I think that all the work and toil is worth the amazing relationship we are able to have with Jesus. ❤

    I want to apologize for not being able to answer some of your questions. I feel like you asked some questions and I just moved around them because I didn’t know the answers myself. Sorry. 🙁

    Hopefully, you will find people who can discuss this stuff with you! Keep asking questions, you’ll get far in life. 🙂

    I know, right? I don’t often do it… but sometimes… *shakes head*

    Yeah, well it would be so cool to meet another writer in person. If I actually remember correctly this time, did you say you were from Fort Collins?  (If you’re comfortable saying, that is.)

    (Also, I’d love to have a discussion about free will and all… but I don’t really feel like getting into an argument just now.  All I can say is that I pretty much agree with what Eden just said.  ^.^)

    @eden-anderson: “All I am gonna say that God controls the future but we still have free will. It’s confusing, I know, but I believe that’s what the Bible says.” Alright well uh, that sounds… interesting XD. If you get the time I would love to hear why and how you hold that view ; D!

    “I want to apologize for not being able to answer some of your questions. I feel like you asked some questions and I just moved around them because I didn’t know the answers myself.” hey no worries! (it happens alot XD) Thanks for sharing your point of view! (I found your separation between brain and mind particularly interesting…) and for talking the time to talk : D

    “Hopefully, you will find people who can discuss this stuff with you!” Lets hope so! (if I don’t soon I might just explode XD)

    “Keep asking questions, you’ll get far in life.” Trust me, its not really a choice… XD If I ever stop asking questions I’ll probably be dead! Anyway, thanks for talking!

    @emgc: “Yeah, well it would be so cool to meet another writer in person.” I agree! (though it would be weird… You know to meet someone you’ve talked to for months and finally know what they look like and, according to edan, really know them ; D. If it actually happens I guarantee I would be nervous about meeting you XD. Ya, I live in Fort Collins (I’m like 0% concerned about anyone from here stalking me! Even if they did I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be very interesting XD)

    Ok cool! well if you ever feel like debating (which, yes I recognize, is highly unlikely XD) then tag me and I’ll be happy to lay some impossible-to-answer-questions on you : D.

    I love your profile pic! It’s adorable!😁❤

    @theinconceivable1

    If you get the time I would love to hear why and how you hold that view ; D!

    Maybe I’ll have to do that sometime…🙂

    Your welcome! It was fun to talk with you.

    Um…please, please find someone to talk to. I am not too fond of the idea of you exploding. 😬😱😱

    If I ever stop asking questions I’ll probably be dead!

    Oh dear, please don’t stop asking questions than either! We like you best of all alive and whole. 😛

    You know to meet someone you’ve talked to for months and finally know what they look like and, according to edan, really know them ;

    Haha, yeah. Ferdinand has never lacked company though, what with his numerous hedgehog friends and relations, plus all his human friends. 😛

    Your profile pic is great too! Is that a real bow?! So cool!!

    True, that.

    Thanks!!!

    I guess it kinda depends on what your definition of ‘real’ is. XD Yes, it works and I can shoot stuff, but no, it’s not an actual bow that you’d use in like competitions and stuff.
