  1. Ban Rosie because I can't stop yawning today for some reason.
  2. Ban Rosie because Jesus will never leave us or forsake us.
  3. Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. (Romans 16:17-18)
  4. I can see that, if that's your preference to add those ingredients to suit your palate. It's similar to a plain hamburger: in the sense that you can add extra cheese, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, etc. There are times when I add butter to the bolognese sauce to smooth out the flavor; in addition to taking time to mellow out the sauce's flavor by having it simmer for a few hours. And if you want to add an extra kick to it, you can add Sriracha sauce. But yeah . . . I would at times add Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning to it.
  5. My bolognese sauce is easy to make. I saute some diced carrots and onions with olive oil, and combine it all with a can of crushed San Marzano tomatoes (sauce included) with salt and pepper. The I remove the casing from italian sausages and add them into the sauce. Yummy!
  6. Salmon or Tuna lightly seared with sesame seed oil and a dash of seasoning is also a quick fix to an easy meal in a hurry. Sometimes less ingredients are better if the ingredients used are fresh and of good quality.
  7. I and my Father are one. (John 10:30) And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that [they may be one, even AS we are one]: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. (John 17:22-23) Does John 10:30 teach us that Jesus did NOT claim to be Deity when proclaimed that He and His Father are ONE -- because we may also be ONE "even as" they are ONE? Why are there so many doctrinal disagreements within the Body of Christ if the Holy Spirit dwells in all genuine believers who possess the Truth? Jesus could not make the statement He made in John 10:30 if He were not God -- which the gospel of John makes crystal clear from the very first verses: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:1-5) It is folly to discuss the Bible with unbelievers (unless they are truly seeking for salvation) or even with wayward believers involved in cult-like organizations, because such people have no respect for the Bible's authority (1 Cor.1:18; 2:14-15). Presenting them with the correct meaning of a Bible verse is liking placing a pearl before an angry hog. The word "one" is the numeral in Greek as in English, but as in English what it means has to be determined by the context. In Hebrew, adopted by the New Testament, God being "one" means God being "unique", and does not mean that Jesus and the Father are the same Person. As believers, we have come to "share in the divine essence" (2 Pet.1:4) because of our unity with Christ -- but we are NOT God. So our unity has to be different in quality and scale than that of the Trinity. The Trinity have never had an argument -- because they are perfectly aligned in their will even though God is three in person. Human beings are different and there have never been two human beings who have agreed on absolutely everything. Our unity as believers has to do with us "fighting on the same team", putting each other first before ourselves, and striving to do all we can to see that the whole team is successful "as one" by helping each other out through our spiritual gifts and ministries (cf. Ps. 133:1; Acts 2:44-45; 4:32; Rom. 12:16; 1 Cor. 1:10; 10:16-17; 12:4-11,27; Eph. 2:22; 4:13,16,25; Phil. 1:27; 4:14; Col. 3:15; Heb. 10:24-25) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith [goal], and of the knowledge (epignosis) of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. (Ephesians 4:11-16) [verse 13] "unity" = enotes. Literally, "oneness", here Paul uses this word to refer to the goal as collective growth, a theme near and dear to Paul's heart and returned to in this passage and in many occasions as well at the end where the body of Christ is to "the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love". This is all about spiritual growth if the Body of Christ is functioning properly as it ought to; as Christ Himself being the head as a collective organism whose purpose is to stimulate the growth of all of its parts so that by mutual support in order that all Christians grows up to spiritual maturity, progresses in their walk with Christ, and in turn helps (through the ministries and spiritual gifts and effects given by God) the rest of the Body of Christ to mature as well – ideally (e.g., Rom. 15:5; 1 Cor. 1:10; 2 Cor. 13:11; Eph. 4:3; Phil. 2:2-4; Col. 3:14; cf. 1 Pet. 3:8-9). God Bless!
  8. I am stunned at the number of deceived men and women who flock to his "church" I also believe that God is allowing for such to happen to separate the sheep from the goats; and as a punishment to those who follow the world system rather than submitting to the Word of God.
  9. Ban Rosie because I am right there with you.
  10. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1:5-8)

    Bible Quiz

    Here's one for you all: What's the meaning behind the 153 fish? Jesus saith unto them, [Bring of the fish which ye have now caught]. Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to [land full of great fishes], an [hundred and fifty and three]: and for all there were so many, [yet was not the net broken]. (John 21:10-11)
  12. This is Pappardelle with Bolognese sauce. My camera isn't quite functioning correctly so it looks like vomit, but it tastes amazing!
  13. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and [beginning to sink], he cried, saying, [Lord, save me]. And [immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand], and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? (Matthew 14:28-31) It doesn't matter how far deep someone is in their sins; Jesus is always willing and able to SAVE those who call out to Him in faith and repentance -- even at that VERY moment without hesitation. God Bless!
  14. I can't get enough of garlic! Spaghetti with garlic bolognese sauce is where it's at.
  15. Someone had asked Joel Osteen as to how long he had been a Christian, and he replied, "I don't know . . . I guess I was always a Christian." His answer should have been, "I guess I was never saved to begin with."
  16. Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1)
  17. And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. (Luke 9:62)
  18. Ban Rosie because there are MANY in "Hellywood" that have literally made a blood contract with the devil himself for fame and fortune; and when that contract expires -- so do they.
  19. Yes Rosie, the transforming power of God is beyond measure.
  20. I have several KJV bibles and do not always take that particular bible to church. There are two bibles that I would often use for in-depth study, and the bible displayed in my post is normally used in group bible studies. As I said before . . . I am just an extremely gentle person when it comes to handling things . . . maybe it's an obsession that I have in keeping things perserved as best as possible. You can come into my home now, and return a month later, and it will seem almost indentical as it were last month. That's just me! In addition to that: this bible is by far the most durable bible I have seen and handled yet. God Bless!
  21. I ate too much food today and now I'm paying for it. :(
  22. I had did a testimony about this a while back. I was a very evil man back in the days and made some poor life choices as a young man.
  23. Ban Rosie because I worked with a man who won $100,000 and spent it all in one year; he said he never felt more miserable in his life.
  24. Ban Rosie because I thought exactly the same when I awoke to the "BREAKING NEWS" which was about the "super-lotto" and the myriad of people waiting in line to take their "chances".
