    Yeah, we need a new topic now, but sometimes it is hard for me to drop the debates. I like to express my viewpoint. So, I just pm'ed pokeJustice.

    I have a generic topic: Has anyone reserved Platinum version?
    I did saturday at GameStop. I paid for 15 dollars worth, and when it come out I can pay for the rest.

    How do you guys feel about doing a battle tournament for this club?

    I do not see the point of getting Platinum seeing how it is basically DP with extras. By the way, I think they should have included the Battle Frontier in DP.

    That would be pretty cool. I probably would not participate seeing how I have not played Pearl for a long time (not to mention the fact that none of my Pokemon are at level 100).

    Kanto, none of your pokemon actually need to be lvl 100. On wifi, you can set them to level 100.

    Lol, i am getting platinum because I am tired of starting over my diamond version. It is ridiculous that I play it over and over again, but I am addicted to it.
    What is funny, is that I should not have told this one kid at church that I play pokemon because he keeps asking me everything about it. It gets a little embarassing.

    Yeah, I just thought it could be something else to do. I am working on a team.

    Well, I can not think of any specific thoughts. However, I know some people who worry so much about the end times. Jesus is going to take care of us.

    I tend to not worry about it, because, although the History channel has been advertising a program announcing evidence that the world will end in 2012, the Bible explicitly states that, in the Book of Revelation, no man shall know when Christ will come. And, since any presumed dates are in violation of that prophecy, the only days we know for sure that Jesus isn't coming on are dates that they make History Channel programs about. Kind of funny, actually.

    Maybe so, but I left of my own accord. You didn't "drive me out." I didn't even remember seeing a post of yours. Pokewho, you asked why I went? To join as a supporter; maybe stem the tide of hate PMs I have been getting. I am not a supporter of homosexuality or of sodomy of any kind, but I am against homophobia, so, in that respect, I stand with gays. I did not denounce them, ask them to change, or do anything terrible, I said that I didn't believe homosexuality was genetic or something unavoidable, which apparently was fighting words.

    Oh, a topic I'm very well versed in (6 page Junior term paper).

    I believe that the biblical prophesies will come to pass literally - the 28 Judgments (7 seals, 7 trumpets, 7 thunders, 7 bowls), the antichrist controlling the entire planet, the mark of the beast, etc.

    Even though the Bible say that "no one knows the day or the hour," I believe that we can know the season of Christ's return, which is in the time period we are in know. The exact date though, only God knows.

    I believe that the mark of the beast is going to be the bio chip implants, but no one knows for certain what form it'll take.

    I'm not concerned about the end times for my own sake, as I'm certain I'll go in the rapture, in the event I haven't passed on by then. I'm mainly concerned about my friends and family members that will be left behind to face the Tribulation if they don't get saved.

    I haven't visited the Clubs forum in a while...again. I've been pretty lazy when it comes to posting lately. I hope you guys are having a great new year so far!

    Has anyone reserved Platinum version?
    Not me. I don't have a DS, thanks to my brother. 8\

    How do you guys feel about doing a battle tournament for this club?
    Like I said, I don't have a DS, so...yeah. It'd be cool if the rest of you guys had one, though.

    What are your thoughts about the end times, the antichrist, etc.?
    IA with crobatman. We're all taken care of. I won't lie, though - I do worry about it sometimes. Right now, though, nope. I'm really excited to graduate high school and for college. :]
    Currently a little busy. I'll respond to all messages when I can.

    I've preorderred two of them. I fully paid for it all at once in cash, and I would have put a deposit on the manual if the option had been available. I intend to add a preorder deposit for the manual as soon as possible.

    i kind of have a question but if you do not think it is appropriate then judt don't bother. why does nudity bother some christians when we were created in god's image? i believe that nobody should be ashaimed by nudity at all, when god came to talk with the prophet isaiah and told him to take off everything. the sackclothe,sandals and all. he then went about naked. isaiah 20:2. i really do not understand why some people think it is a sin to be seen while to others it is ok to be seen. in all of my life i wondered this because god never told adam to put the skins on, adam was the one who wanted this. the romans crucified jesus naked and jesus even said nudity is not a sin. john 19:23-24
    "it is more blessed to give than to recieve"-J.C:acts 20.35

    hello everyone! may god bless you all! god loves everyone! even those who are evil, god will not abandon you so don't you abandon him. my partner in life i shall see in one year and we will sing and dance together! i know he has a gift for me but he does not need to bring me.

    Sorry for being inactive here, I've been a bit busy with Cross Country, swimmin, Faith Formation, that stuff. Anyway, I'll answer to you guys now.

    SWEETCHERRYB, I sortof wondered why some people hate nudity, but I guess one reason is that humans have a natural shame for it. When Adam and Eve ate the fruit, they saw that they were naked and they were ashamed for it, so they put on plants and skins and tried to hide their bodies. But I guess some people just think it's vulgar so other people don't do it, and germs would spread easier. But to be honest, I'm not entirely sure.

    What are your thoughts about the end times, antichrist, etc?

    To be honest I'm rather scared. I feel like I may have commited too many sins and have not payed enough attention to God to go to Heaven, and I'm scared of going to Hell. I realize that worrying about my self and asking God to help me be good is rather selfish, and now I'm asking God to help others be good and help them to go to Heaven as well. But I really don't have much of a say on this, I don't really know about the antichrist or that much about the end of the world.

    Okay I'm sorry about the post above. Someone has been hacking into my account doing this stuff, and seding PM's about this to all of my friends. So again, I'm sorry about all of this. (I will delete the post above so it doesn't continue to confuse people.

    What are your thoughts about the end times, antichrist, etc?

    Well, it is scary, but I don't worry about it because I know, as long as I'm walking with God, I have nothing to fear. I know I will be taken up in the rapture.

    Well, this sounds fun. I wonder if we could make a social group just for battling in this club. I am thinking 2 weeks to get a team ready is long enough. We should do no ubers, with a standard competition. I read the smogon tournament guide, and it said to use 3 on 3 battles and single elimination. I think we should limit the number of players also.

    So, we can start it on January 30.

    Me and my bible class are disscusing the end times every sunday before church. I think we're pretty close, most say its gonna happen 2012. But still you gotta be aware of every thing dont give in to darkness, dont worship no man. The Anti-christ is not among us yet, but he will be soon, he just doesnt know it yet. And yeah it sounds scary, but y'know what? its the truth and tho it is, im pretty happy, I want something to just happen that will change my life, and I feel I am getting closer and closer to knowing what true love is. I got good friends in my path(and one of them is a beautiful christian girl that I like alot) I hope we are all ready for when the end comes, and my true friend Jess, someday I know we will meet again.

    For me, I do think that it'll be soon. However, I have nothing to fear since I know that God will protect me. And the anti-christ is no big deal either. In 2 Thessalonians(I think. I forget the verse, but I'll look it up and post it for y'all later) it says that on the last day the "man of lawlessness"(or antichrist) will be revealed and Jesus will wipe Him out right away. So really, we shouldn't worry about what's coming, we should be looking forward to it since we will then be with Jesus in Heaven.

    As for the nudity topic, I'll look up the verse and get back to you on it. BTW, any specific reason why you ask, sweetcherry?

    You know, with the idea of the uber rule, I have one thing to mention. For one thing, those are rules for another section of the forum and (I believe) do not have juristiction over the club forum. The uber idea is one thought, but their list is messed up. In my idea, only hacked pokemon should be able to be called ubers. I have plenty of powerful brutes which were obtained and raised to level 100 completely fair and square, but they are on the "uber" list and therefore unusable. I have a Sabeley with wonderguard; an obvious hack; but not on the uber list. I don't think that any pokemon is uber as long as it is obtained in regular gameplay and has stats/moves/abilities/etc. which are also normal in the game's programing.

    All sin is equal, and one is no better than one-thousand. God is there for everyone, and you are not selfish for praying constantly. There was an insecure period in my life when I prayed incessantly, but He always listened. He is there to help you with anything.

    You seem to not entirely understand Salvation. If you believe with all your heart that the Bible is the inerrant, infallible, accurate Holy and Inspired Word of God, and that Jesus was His Son and that He was crucified but arose three days later, then even the lowest of the low and worst of the worst can be Saved. You, as I'm sure, are a good person, but not sinning a large amount doesn't keep you from Hell. Salvation does, and if you worry as much as you say, then pray this prayer (don't just say it; make sure you believe it):

    "Dear God, I know I'm a sinner. I know that by nature, I am no good and I need You. I know that You sent Your Son to die for us and I thank You. I know that the Bible is your book and I respect Your Name; and, with this prayer, I repent from my life of Sin and Wrongs and Embrace You as my Lord and Savior. Amen."

    ...or something to that effect.

    I hope that praying and believing that prayer erases all doubt of your Safety and Salvation.

    For further readings on Justification by Faith Alone (the concept of Salvation), consult The Book of Romans.

    you do know that i can tell you why cherry asked right? well i kinda did a little reasearch on her question and she is a christian naturist. her parents raised her like this since they believe that since the body was created naked and in gods image they show an innocent and peacefull atmosphere. the human body is not evil, it is what you hide that makes you giulty. the spirit is good but5 the flesh is evil.... that is like saying there is two souls in one body. god gave us free will did he not? the only difference to them is that they do not consider the flesh evil since they were born naked not hairy like a monkey. if the body was so evil why did god create it? well i think of the body as a house for our soul while the soul controls the body. even when i think about it it doesn't seem bad since we are less likely to do bad things. it depends on what YOU as a person do with your body. if you respect it then that is good. nudity and sexuality have never actually mixed either. she is not lost but confused about why people abuse it and make it seem like something evil. pornography is idol worship incase you did not know. if you give it a thought you should understad what i am saying.

    the antichrist is no big deal, to us we are supposed to look towards this moment because we will be with god and the world as we know it today will end. it is a blessing to have such a cursed era finally DIE. we get a new body also and are reborn again with eternal life.

You, as I'm sure, are a good person, but not sinning a large amount doesn't keep you from Hell. Salvation does, and if you worry as much as you say, then pray this prayer (don't just say it; make sure you believe it):

    "Dear God, I know I'm a sinner. I know that by nature, I am no good and I need You. I know that You sent Your Son to die for us and I thank You. I know that the Bible is your book and I respect Your Name; and, with this prayer, I repent from my life of Sin and Wrongs and Embrace You as my Lord and Savior. Amen."

    ...or something to that effect.

    I hope that praying and believing that prayer erases all doubt of your Safety and Salvation.

    For further readings on Justification by Faith Alone (the concept of Salvation), consult The Book of Romans.
    Thank you. I just whispered that prayer to myself, meaning everything with all my heart, and it did make me feel a lot better. I will try to beleive harder and be a good person and pray for everyone, as I know other people will try too.
