New Blogger

This is me when I was a freshman in high school. I was only known as "Rosie" back then. (It wasn't until I was 17 that I started to go by the name "Rose"). That is a Catholic School unifirom I am wearing. (weird, huh? As long as the "pattern" or "shape" of the dress was correct, the fabric could be whatever you choose).
I was not saved until I was 20, so in this picture I was ... well, ... lost.

I have started a new profile and blog with this persona. You will see her around commenting when I want to offer a different perspective - the perspective of one who doesn't know Christ. If you see "Rosie" pop up on a blog, be nice to her.

I was inspired to do this when I was thinking about a post, (or maybe a series of posts) on this question:

Does the Christian have a Dual Nature?
Upcoming!

    Am I dead?

    Joe,
    Looks are deceiving!

  • Thats a really interesting idea rose. I like it!

  • kinda funny to me, but my wife thought it odd.

  • Hi Dorothy. Like I said, it came to me because of a post I am planning on writing: Does the Christian have a dual nature?

    Shawn,
    Your wife doesn't appreciate my oddness?

  • Hi Rosie, and Rose,
    Dual nature?
    As in flesh vs spirit, you mean?
    My flesh is always wrestling with the Spirit in me, but I only go by one name.
    Cute idea, though.
    Except that I don't want anything to do with my old self, before I was born again in the Spirit. I don't even like to think about her. I'd rather that old self be cast into the sea. The old Susan wasn't a very good person, even if she thought she was "a good person" and that that was enough.

  • Dual nature, as in the "old man" and the "new creation".

    Thanks Susan, I don't like the old me either. She was really hopeless. But, I think it is good that we can access the thoughts of our "old man". It can help us to relate to/reach those who are without the life of God.

  • Yes you are dead!!!

    In that you are cut off from the life of God.

    But this whole thing you're doing seems like a Sandra Bullock movie.

  • Hi Blue Raja,
    Thanks for visiting. I hope you will come back again when I have a post with a little more substance!

    Matthew,
    "Interesting" is a very interesting choice of a word. It makes me wonder if you, like Shawn's wife, think I am odd. If you did think that, you just may be right!

    Jodie,
    Yes, cut off from the life of God, unborn. Is unborn the same as dead? This is something I must explore.
    What does this mean: Sandra Bullock movie. Net II

    Is that a movie of her's? What was it about? Am I too weird for you?

    By Blogger Rose~, at 2/10/2006 3:35 PM  

  • Rose~
    I certainly do not think you are odd. You are the most sensible person I have ever intermet (and probably met, if I did meet you in person).

    God Bless

    Matthew

  • Rose,

    You are not odd at all!! She meant the idea meaning odd.

    By Blogger Shawn L, at 2/10/2006 6:03 PM  

  • Hi Rose,

    Very clever. She's older now, same age as Rose. Let's here from her. Well...looks like I've bought into it. Strange, but truth is always stranger than fiction. Todd

  • Husband puts foot in wifes mouth;) What I said to him was it would be hard for me to go back to how I viewed things before I got saved because I view things so different. I said it's odd for me to think of because I was so different before salvation and getting a heart of flesh.

  • From Webster:

    ODD: not regular, expected, or planned , differing markedly from the usual or ordinary or accepted, PECULIAR (synonym see STRANGE)

    Matthew,
    I would not take offense to being called odd. I don't think odd precludes sensible.
    It sure was nice of you to say what you did about me. You are such a nice blog person.
    (and I would count on you as being a nice in-person person too.)
    Every Blessing in Christ~

    Shawn and Jessica Jo (nice to see you Jessica Jo),
    I was not offended at all. It is an odd idea. It was really wierd. I was asked on my "other" blog why I didn't enter any of the music in that profile that I used to like. So ... I decided that I would. I had to really think about it. In somes ways the past is so long gone, but in other ways, there are things that I can't forget that seem so present in my memory from my life before. I do, however, often have to remind myself when I get indignant at the behaviour of unsaved people, to remember that when I was in their state; anything was fair game! I was no better than they are. It is good to keep that in mind that folks are deluded because they are separated from the life of God. They don't know what it is like to have a reality with Him.

    Todd,
    It is good to see you.
    Strange indeed. God bless.

  • I think the Rosie idea is great, can't wait to hear her pipe up.

    The Net was a pretty fun thriller!

    Sandra B is a funny actress :-).

  • Hi Rose. This is a kewl idea. I saw Rosie's comment on Matthew's site and thought what a great way that would be to teach. I can't wait to see what comes from this. ;-)

    By Blogger Kc, at 2/11/2006 6:03 PM  

  • Thanks HK and KC. I will be interested too! I knew I could count on you to be encouraging. Every Blessing!

  • Rose,

    You say you "were not saved." I'm not trying to start anything, but what does that mean to you? Before you believed in God?

    By Blogger Pastor Jim, at 2/12/2006 3:39 PM  

  • Hi "Pastor Jim".
    What I mean is, I had never believed that Jesus was any more than a good man, a great teacher of how to be kind to people.

    I wasn't even sure that God really existed. I didn't realize that I needed a savior, and I certainly didn't know Christ as my own savior. I didn't know Him.

    So, you say:
    Before you believed in God?
    Well, yes, before, but also after. I had "believed in God" as a child, but then the Catholic church had totally turned me off. There didn't seem to be any truth to their sayings. I threw the baby out with the bath water and became agnostic. Then, I met Him, I was wonderfully given the gift of salvation. You can read about that in my side bar if you wish. It is a post entitled "my testimony".

    Why do you ask?
