What Does This Mean?

Please I need a bible scholar or anyone who understands the meaning the the words , kick against the pricks, as used, to explain them to me. I have had a hard time understanding its meaning.

Acts 9:5

And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

Acts 26:14

And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

Sylvao, get back into this relationship and you shd get an award. For mugu of the year. Coming back to you after dumping you is not so bad in itself, but her speed of getting into another set of arms would make Ben Johnson on hyper steriods look as slowas a nigerian train. And then she wants to come back?? She sure has a fickle mind and extremely high turnover.

Dont even consider payback. poo happens and she comes back knocked up.

Get out. Stay out.

I would suggest that you let her be.

You can’t make yourself a second choice object. I.e. Whenever she has no where else to go she would come to you.

Just go and look for a decent girl who would love you from the bottom of her heart ok?

1. She may have been two timing you [or the other guy depending on who she started seeing first] and then when she had to make a choice, she looked at all her variables and voila, went with Mr. Rival.

Seeing as this is neither here nor there anyway, since your q is whether u should take her back [abi?], then:

2. She may have realised that its you she truly loves afterall.  No matter what some people think, the human heart isnt totally bad. We may generalise all we like but the truth remains that on a tree, there will be good fruits and bad fruits; its what makes the world go round. In which case taking her back isnt such a bad idea esp if you still love her.

3. She may not be worth the trouble anyhow, because maybe she's just looking your way now because the other guy gave her tha dumping. Its a maybe o, not a definite. in which case she'd better be left alone.

Altogether, just follow your heart. It may lead you astray but then again, it may lead you aright; we never know. Life is worth the gamble my dear. You can take this with you:

Revenge is pointless; a further waste of your time. if you don't want to be with her, let her go. You will suffer more ifyou try the revenge thing. You don't have to take my word for it though, afterall we learn from our mistakes [even when we can simply take good advice or learn fromt he errors of others]!

I think that she has seen that the grass isnt greener on the other side. its your choice, you can take her bad if its what you want - but i think she is definately genuine.

i think you know what you want.

if what you had b4 she left was very nice, you can take her back and if you really dont want her back why not tell her to move on, instead of you having your own pound of flesh.

Damn, how can one break up with someone and still in that same month have someone new, unless she was two timing u and dropped u cos of the other guy. She dont love u, she just likes what u give her. Drop her and let her go for goodness sake. She'll just hurt u more and bring u problems.

Drop the hag.

It sound fishy to me! How long you and your girlfriend been together before she broke off with you a month ago?

I agree with @labiyemmy to ask her why she suddenly broke off then suddenly getting you back? Maybe she realizes picking wrong guy, want to back to you bec u have everything she wants.

Maybe she is two-time lover to keep two men behind your back. Who knows?

Remember you last posted in other thread, "10 good things you need to know about women", i thought you follow all 10 good things to avoid, suddenly how come your girlfriend dissed u for someone else.

You've given us too little information, I have to know what your existing relationship/friendship's like, whether he's single, whether he just got out of a relationship, whether he flirts with you or your sister, or whether he is just a platonic friend who is just curious about 'what you want your wedding to be like' - after all he may just want insight into a girl's mind.

What else do you think he means, he asked you a question.

for now he doesn't mean anything coz he hasn't said anything he only asked

so what he means is HOW YOU WANTED YOUR WEDDING TO BE

simple, just break up with him. it may not be that easy but you need to move on in your life, cause it seems he is already doing that.

if the love is not there, why waste your time? its not worth it.

he is obviously playing games, and i dont think you should be waiting around for forever to come, before you go out and look for someone to appreciate you.

just because you love that person doesnt mean he is the right one for you.

and i think he might have used the money and taken advantage of you. it seems you became his personal bank account, idk.

*and i agree with cantell, olanajim, and marcoguy. this sex thing, its not love ooo, its lust*

Nice advice there frm cantell and olanajim

@poster. I think u r in d relationship cos of sex. If i were d guy,i wud do same afta a while.He probably wants u 2 redefine your love in a much more interesting way. Its not only financial support and sex dat some guys go into relationships 4. I wudnt rather be in a relationship with a girl dats doesnt have any other thing interest about her.Things lyk being very romantic,faily unpredictable,versatility in knowledge,gud dressense,mature,understanding,fluent,caring,GOOD COOKING ABILITY and above all having d ability of ur guy to confide in u n seek advice.(victoria beckham,alicia keys kind of ladies, lol)

Take a personal reassesment n if u posses all or most of these n ur guy is treatn u dis way,then leave him cos its not ur fault n move on cos there's a better guy out there thats worth u.
