Who Owns You?

If your wife suffers from a childhood skull fracture, why would you want to expose her to further injury, or death, by taking her for a motorcycle ride, helmet or not? Common sense trumps laws! And Chris, how could God's will change the fact that my life in finite? :Please don't tell me that "everlasting life" is mine for the asking..... Certainly my physical life is not "everlasting," and if my soul is to soar forever in the cosmos I don't think it depends on repentance and request!

wytex2, Your reply is insightful ~ and correct! Although my life is finite; my will cannot change that!

Well, I haven't spoken to God lately, nor do I think you have, so you are "free" to believe what you will, and I am "free" to believe that God does not OWN me ~ or you. If you choose to live your live chained to your belief that you are owned by GOD, or anyone or anything else, you are owned ~ not by God or anyone or anything else, but by the constraints of your own understanding of life!

Anton, I abide by laws that make sense..... Wearing a helmet when riding a bike or motorcycle? Yes, common sense..... Mandatory use of a seatbelt? Yes, at least twice I have avoided death or serious injury because I was wearing a seatbelt! Dictates what I can put into my body? Well, I don't do drugs, not because of laws, rather because I know they can ravage my body. Perhaps you are not the captain of your ship, but I captain mine!

God does NOT own you, Wayne ~ God gave you life and free will, then set you free to take your God-given spark of humanity and do with it what you will......

Who owns me? No one! No government ~ no religion ~ no political party. I am not for sale! My heart and soul are mine! My life is mine! I abide by laws and respect the rights of others. But my life, and my mind, are owned by no one but me! I am indebted to no one! I am not for sale!
Obama is acting according to plan. Not his plan, of course, he is a fraud, a fool, a fop, a charlatan and a puppet. He is enacting the plan of reducing our Republic to Third World status, or worse..... That is the plan of Islam..... Obama is an Islamist.....
Obama announced this before his election ~ why the surprise now? And our political eunuchs in DC will just roll their eyes, pass gas, and raise more money for their reelection.....

Hi Mike..... I'm divided between allowing Mr. Horton-the-Hater to tuck his UNCW degree in his thong and allowing him to slink into the oblivion of reality ~ or, as you did, hold him and his rants up for further scrutiny. The latter will only endear him to his like-minded friends and further inflame the disgust of those who agree with you. Me, for example..... Sometimes, a rock is best left unturned.....
Gopnik is a writer blinded by his own brilliance. He is so self-absorbed he cannot, or fails to, objectively examine what is happening before his own eyes. Absent the terrorist shootings at Ft. Hood and the terrorist bombing in Boston, the mass-murder shootings were carried-out by mentally-ill persons. How do you legislate against that? The Santa Barbara shooter [why does the media insist on using his name? Such infamy is undeserved and only serves to inflame the passions for "fame" of others who are also mentally-ill.] did not violate even ONE of California's draconian gun-control laws! I defy anyone or any group of gun-control zealots to construct a law that could have prevented the deaths of the shooter's two roommates and a guest. Wait a minute! They were murdered with a knife!!! Oh my God!!! Now the knife-control zealots will have to get into the act. Do you have a knife in your kitchen? Your house?
