Prophetic counselling .. - Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming
Prophetic counselling ..
.. maybe I do need that prophetic counselling from the church across the road, to ascertain when the BT man will be here to activate my phone line. The man I first spoke to on the phone had said 8 to 12. When I phoned BT a short while ago (one of the most frustrating phone calls I've made recently) the woman said it was 8 to 1. It is 2 pm now and no sign of them. Do they mean 8 to 12, or 1, in this time zone?

[ Edit ] Second phone call to BT and I'm told that I 'have to wait all day'. Then when I tell him for the second time that I'm seeing on the order tracking page that 'there has been a change in the completion date of your order' he makes me wait some more and says that 'there is a fault in the line..' -he offers to ring me back on my mobile number, which they have, as well as my email address, but no-one has told me at all what is happening. What a farce, and a wasted day.

I vaguely recall that in the new testemant it is made clear that prophecy is one of a few spiritual gifts and that not many people have it and as people tend to get things wrong any prophecy must be backed up by another person with the same gift. Prophetic councelling preys on the vulnerable and without integrity and care could be damaging. Wouldn't touch it with a disinfected bargepole.

Heh. I wasn't being entirely serious. There is no danger whatsoever of me falling in the clutches of any kind of religion, I'm afraid, for good or bad. I'm the most religious atheist you've met, I devote (sori) an inordinate and probably unhealthy amount of time to thinking about these things and have long since arrived to my conclusions about religions, why we need them and why none of them works for me.

Didn't thinbk you were serious but find it hard to resist the opportunity to be pedantic
