  1. Can you believe the near 100 degree temps sure seem like summer?
  2. Exodus 18:19 Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God:
  3. Exodus 18:17 And Moses' father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good.
  4. "Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?" 1 John 5:5
  5. Your pain saddens me. My wife suffers from chronic pain and arthritis issues. She's had neck surgeries which has helped but there are no more surgeries which can be done for her neck so she will have to deal with chronic pain in that area. She's had two total knee replacements and is having problems with a shoulder too. Going through this with her I can greatly sympathize with you and will certainly lift you and your situation to the Lord in prayer. May our gracious God send you comfort and peace along with wisdom.
  6. There sure seems to be a lot of popular mythology concepts regarding prisons, prisoners and related matters here. Prisons vary, often greatly, depending upon whether they are State or federal (or even large county jails which are basically prisons). Variations also exist within these different systems, such as differences between minimum, medium, maximum and super maximum prisons. Within those different types there is much variety from one to another within each State and federal institutions. (These days there are also a number of private, corporate prisons too, which is another issue.
  7. Israel Bonds with Russia The deepening ties between Israel and Russia are important for the country’s security, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said as he addressed a Jerusalem Day ceremony on the eve of his departure to Moscow. Israel has worked to strengthen its ties with Moscow, alongside those of its chief ally, the United States, whose President Barack Obama, Netanyahu has met only once in the last year. Coordination between the IAF and the Russian air force continues to be good, due to the need by both countries to avoid inadvertent incidents in the crowded air space
  8. Our church tries to be very careful in this area too. We believe members should give to the church but we don't want to give an appearance of trying to "get money" from non-members (though they are free to give too!). We don't have a website where someone could give to the church, but we have established a means for giving via credit card or automatic withdrawal from a bank account. In order to do that, we can give the church secretary our information and it will be set up. We still pass the plate around during a service, and many still give that way, but there are also a number of p
  9. While the principle is biblical, it is required to be conducted lawfully and that's impossible at the federal level as things currently stand. Individual States and localities may have the authority (depending upon how their constitutions and laws are set forth) to establish a drug enforcement agency, but not the federal government. The federal government was never meant to be the main ruler of the land nor the main law establisher or enforcer. Those matters were left to the States and people of each State.
  10. Very interesting ideas. Most churches, when receiving warnings, will notice and respond to the warnings they are already aware of or concerned about, but will not recognize those they are already comfortable with.
  11. Indeed, in hindsight the First Coming of Christ seems clear, and the Jews at that time certainly thought they understood exactly what Scripture meant regarding the coming of Christ...yet they were wrong.
  12. We are getting close to summer, right?
  13. It also depends upon which ones are legal where you live or plan to travel, and of those legal, which one you are most comfortable with (could most easily carry, get to and use well).
  14. Exodus 18:15 And Moses said unto his father in law, Because the people come unto me to enquire of God:
  15. Most folks, Christians included, are woefully ignorant of what Scripture actually says in these matters, what actual science indicates, and that popularized theories regarding evolutionary ideas are not fact and in many cases have either been clearly proven false or there are other possibilities which carry far more weight. Our pastor did an adult Sunday school class on this early this year and I was amazed at how little most in the class actually knew about the topic. The time spent covering this topic was well spent as all but a couple in the class learned and grew greatly in this area.
