I have to add that your Path is much the same as mine - who makes the rules?  Wealthy white men?  What about those of us who are not wealthy or white?

That is as much a political question as Spiritual.

Now, to intercede on Randall's behalf (given that he is otherwise occupied), we do have some posting rules here.  When you click "reply/quote," the "quote" is there for a reason; it is so the rest of us know which post you are replying to.  This is primarily for the convenience of the staff, but some of the rest of us need a refresher if we've fallen behind.

So when you see all of that quote junk at the top of your reply, please leave it, or some of it, so the rest of us know to whom you are replying. Smiley

Otherwise, Bob the Dinosaur will have to give you a wedgie.

Cheers,

Sorry about that, new to forum working on the rules and how toos. 
As to the white men part I was referring to the original men who oversaw the pulling of the letters together to form the Bible as well as the ones who edited it and translated it in the later years.

To me, the time frame doesn't make all that much difference - it is still a bureaucracy seeking to control as many people as possible, and not necessarily for their own benefit.

er - I sincerely doubt they were /white/ when we're talking about pulling the Bible together.  Given that they were Jews in Israel and that area.

There's a difference between "those in power at the time" and "all power being always in the hands of white people forever and ever".

My copy of the New American Bible (one of Koi's favorites and my copy has lots of explanatory footnotes) reads:

Psalms 82:1  God arises in the divine assembly; he judges in the midst of the gods.

A footnote says: "The gods: human judges, who are 'godlike' in their prerogative of establishing justice on earth. Cf Ps 58,2"

Sorry for bringing back up this old thread, but i was just reading through it and finding it interesting. Found this page where the footnote of Psalm 82:1 is rather strange. Thought I'd share.

And heart's frosty discipline
Exact as a snowflake'

That is very strange -- and does not match the footnote in my copy (which is an older edition, I think -- it's hard to tell from that web site).  This is when I miss Koi most.

I sent her the link for this topic, just to show her how things had been going, but unfortunately she's extremely busy.

She is. Lyric and I hear from her occasionally and she seems busier every time. I honestly don't know how she does all she does -- while staying sane.

Just wait till  she starts have babies, then she really will go insane.  OR slow down a little.
