|The Adventures of Fish|
Fish was swimming along in the waters and getting cold. “I hate being cold”, said fish. “The water is cold, I'm cold, and all the other fish I know are cold. I hate being cold.” While fish was saying these things to fishes fishself fish couldn't concentrate and swam straight into a fish net.
Fish swam straight.
Right into a net.
What fish didn't know was that it was about to change fishes life forever.
Fish was truely caught in the fishermans net and despite all of fishes struggles and wriggles fish could not get away. “That's it, I quit,” said fish. And with that the net started to move. Slowly. Fisherman must have heard all the splashing about and began to pull in his net. Slowly fish was was pulled up with the net and into fishermans boat. Fish had heard terrible stories about fishermen
and was very afraid. Fish needn't have worried for this Fisherman was actually looking for this very Fish. This fisherman had made a promise to fish when fish was very little.
“I can't breath”, thought fish to fishes fishself, and with that fisherman carried fish. He picked up fish and carried fish to a clean pool of water so fish could breath. But this was no ordinary water though. This water was lovely. It was lovely and warm.
In fact it was lovely and warm and kind and sweet, and peaceful, and calm, and hopeful, and... Oh...
Sorry. I get carried away sometimes.
Back to fish.
The water was alive. Fish had never known such clean water, let alone living water that was so clean that it started to move inside of every part of Fish. Warming fish up. From fishes tail fins to the tip of fishes nose. Fisherman looked upon fish with great affection for he knew how cold fish had become.
“When you were very small fish I made a promise to you. I promised I would save you and I have. I have saved you from being cold because you asked me to”. Fish remembered asking the fisherman when fish was small and was greatful. He remembered the fisherman's promise. The fisherman said to fish that I will always be with you, inside your heart, and never leave you. Fish was overwhelmed with the love of the fisherman. It was because of that love for the fisherman that fish leapt for joy in the living waters.
Fish thought to fishes fishself, I would love to stay here with the fisherman, but if I stay here with the fisherman all of the cold fish will not know of this warm water from the fisherman and that would be selfish, and I am not selfish, because the love of the fisherman is not selfish. “Kind fisherman,” said fish, “I must tell the cold fish about you, will you help me?” “The living waters will help you,” said the fisherman. “ I am going to prepare a place for you where I live and when I return I will bring you and all of my friends home”. Fish leapt for joy. Fish knew that the fisherman would keep his promise. “I have a gift for you fish. In time you will be different. You will not look as you do now. As you begin grow,” fish interupted, “ I am already full grown fisherman”. “Hush fish, for the living waters that you now breath will help you to continue to grow and you will be warm all your days.” Fisherman had a broad smile upon his face as he gently picked fish up. “When you speak to the living waters within you , you will speak to me also for I'm am always with you and with that the fisherman carefully put fish back into the water where fish had been.
Well as the days passed by fish began to grow. Day by day fish would talk with the living waters within him. At times there was a such a joy, fish would overflow from within and he now had a need to share what was happening to him with others. Fish was unsure of what exactly it was that the living waters would use to help fish tell others but there was no need to worry. The living waters are most loving and would begin to bless fishes life with gifts fish had only dreamed of.
You see fish was actually very shy so to help bring fish out of fishes shell..., what's that I here you say, shellfish, no, fish was not a shellfish, not a clam, not an oyster, but a fish fish.
Now where was I. Oh yes.
Fish was actually very shy, and the living waters are not. Unbeknowst to fish fish was going to sing. Unbeknownst to fish, fish was going to be an artist, for you see before fish became a cold fish, fish had always looked at those other fish and wondered how it was they could sing, secretly always admiring them. Fish also had another secret. Fish would have loved to have been an artist. Oh fish had doodled and some fish had even complemented the artwork fish had done, but never anything that would keep his attention. The coldness you see could never inspire or encourage fish with the same hope and trust of the living waters. And that is exactly what began to happen. As the days went by fish began to sing. With other fish at first as fish was shy it was easier to just blend in.
What's that you say. Who are these other fish? I'm certain I mentioned them. Yes, yes in deed I did. These other fish are friends of the Fisherman. Remember, the kind Fisherman was going to prepare a place where the Fisherman lived for all of Fishermans friends.
You see the living water's are unique. That is to say the living waters are veeeeeeeeeeerrrry
special. I'll try my best to explain. Try to imagine the most precious gift in all of creation. Anything at all. The most precious gift you could possibly have in all of creation. What would it be? Quick now we haven't got all day. What ever it is I can gaurentee you I know what it is and I know what it is because the living waters are veeeeeeeerrrry special. Well, you just have a think about it then, I understand it a big question. Now, let's get back to fish.
As fish was shy and nervous about singing because of what fish though others might think of him, the living waters were very thoughtful and considerate of fishes feelings and knew fish would become more comfortable singing with other fish who were friends of the Fisherman already. And this they did. The living waters would encourage fish to sing with the Fisherman's friends every week. They had the living waters inside them also and together they would sing songs to the Fisherman. Very special fish.
Fish noticed that many of the friend's would play a musical intrument as well as singing and thought how wonderful that must be. As time went on and the singing continued the friends would share with each other what the fisherman had told them and one was this. The Fisherman had said that what ever you ask , ask it in my name and it shall be done.
So it was that in between singing songs to the fisherman the friends would ask for things in the fishermans name. That way what they ask for is not for themselves but for the fisherman. All sorts of things, from help, health, guidance, support, courage, mercy, boy does He love showing His mercy. Actually His mercy is the encouragement, guidance, support, health, help, and peace the friends receive from Him.
Would you like to know why He gives them so much? So much love, so much joy, so much peace, so much hope, so much kindness. Yes? It's because He loves them so much. And do you know why? Because they are His children. Yep, they are His children. As Father He adopts cold fish into His family so that they can become warmed up. He does this very special thing for them so that they will go and tell all the cold fish who He is. That way the cold fish will come to know who the kind fisherman is also and He can save them from being cold too.
What ever you would choose in all of creation would be created. Yep created. Even you are created. Here's the best part. Since you and me and fish are created that means we have a creator and guess who He is.

|Jesus best friend was a prostitute?|
I take that to mean that it was the prostitutes and people who needed help that Jesus came to befriend and not the type of comment that should elicit a response like this.
You are obviously an enlightened individual full of knowledge who easily expounds upon one subject with the grace of a hippopotomas. Tell us, whilst trundling through the Holy Bible with your wisdom crushing hooves I am certain you were explaining the nuances of your findings to the rest of the heard, how did they take the good news that Jesus best friend was a prostitute.
Yes that's right, it's all coming back to me now. Jesus and the twelve prostitutes.
You remember, those people such as Peter ( Fisherman by the way) who died on a cross upside down because he didn't consider himself worthy to be crucified in the same manner as his saviour.
No that would just be idiotic and I'm sure you meant what I described in the first paragraph.

|Judge not OP, lest ye be judged. Don't fall for the trap.|

|Love it when people take a couple of words from the Bible without understanding. Allow me to clarify. "Judge not least you be judged yourself". |
3 As for my attitude, though I am absent [from you] in body, I am present in spirit, and I have already decided and passed judgment, as if actually present, 4 In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, on the man who has committed such a deed. When you … are met together with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5 You are to deliver this man over to Satan for physical discipline [to destroy carnal lusts which prompted him to incest], that [his] spirit may [yet] be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. ( This is a letter written by Paul to the church in Corinth.)
In my judgement which is something I do freely because when I judge people I do it in the hope that I would be judged in the same manner, that is to say, for my salvation.
For example, if I were behaving like an ignorant idiot who was enslaved to the canal lusts of the flesh as I once was
( though it wasn't incest), I would like to be told by some one who is clear sighted enough to make that judgement, in order that I would not go on committing the same sins and that my soul be saved from the hatred of God.
So in my judgement, I judge on the premise that I be judged in the same manner. I judge for the salvation of souls.
Thereby, when I am judged it will that I am judged for the salvation of my soul.
