    heartstrings got a reaction from Alan in Pastoring involves?   
    "Pastor" means "feeder"
    A feeder is to "oversee". 1 Peter 5
    Lead by "ensample" (example). with an exemplary life which includes loving people.. 1 Peter 5
    His "feed" should be nothing but the Word of God, clean and unadulterated. 
    He should "disciple" by spending time with people..  
    He should also be mindful of the temptation to "lord" over others.. Luke 22: 25-27

    This morning Randy had a boiled egg for breakfast. As he was peeling it, he noticed something hard at the top of it. He took of the very top and saw...a mini egg! In the  first picture it looks almost like the yolk is peeking out. But it was no yolk.
    In the second picture, Randy put the mini egg by the regular egg so a sense of size was given. He took the mini egg to church tonight. In picture 3, one of our members put his finger in the picture for sizing.
    In the fourth picture, Randy peeled the egg. Yes, indeed - the mini egg had a shell! As you might be able to see, there was no yolk in the mini egg, but it was definitely egg white.
    Has anyone ever experienced this? A friend linked an article for me to read about this. The link is below, but it's the second title in the article that explains this. Interesting stuff!

    heartstrings reacted to Alan in Making America Great Again   
    President Trump has made some very important, but some low-key, decisions concerning the welfare of Taiwan, the Republic of China, that has kept America free from communist aggression in South East Asia, Democracy in Taiwan, and the Economic welfare of America.  Thus, President Trump is a leader, a President, that has America's interest at heart.
    Below are some excerpts from a recent article in the English newspaper on Taiwan, the Taipei Times, that will give some insight on these low-key decisions that President Trump has made to help America by helping Democratic Taiwan.
    Ian Easton On Taiwan: Why the US defends Taiwan
    Mon, Sep 16, 2019 - Page 6
    “What is clear is that Trump subsequently signed the landmark Taiwan Travel Act, sent Marines to guard the AIT (the de facto American Embassy in Taipei), and personally approved a historic sale of new F-16 jet fighters to the island. By all accounts, US-Taiwan relations have never been better than they are now, and they are likely to get better still in the years ahead. This has all happened despite a massive Chinese influence and intimidation campaign.
    What follows are six reasons why any American president should think defending Taiwan is in the best interest of the United States. Note by Alan: I am only going to quote three reasons, Ian Eastons number Second, Third, and Sixth, instead of all six reasons, listed as these three reasons deal directly with the, "Making America Great Again," thread here on Online Baptist.
    Second, US economic well-being depends on it. According to the Census Bureau’s July 2019 data, Taiwan is currently America’s 10th largest trading partner (ahead of Italy, Vietnam, and Brazil). Taiwan punches above its weight in many spheres of activity. Trade is no exception. This high tech island is critical to the supply chains that power the US economy. Keeping US technology companies like Apple, IBM, and Google in business means keeping Taiwan from being blockaded, bombed, and overrun.
    Third, it’s about the homeland. Chinese officials have repeatedly threatened to launch nuclear attacks on major US cities in the event of a war over Taiwan. ... Taiwan helps keep the Chinese military boxed in.
    Sixth, Taiwan is a fellow democracy and, therefore, its survival has intrinsic value.”
     
    Below is the full article by Ian Easton in the September 16, 2019 issue of the, "Taipei Times."

    ...and there we have it.
    It didn't take as long as I thought it would for this guy to show his true colors.
    He really let you guys have it!
    At least he only condemned me as an IFB and elderly. LOLOL! Hey wait...seems like the Bible says something somewhere about how to treat the elderly??? Hmmm...
    Oh well. Just want to let Shootsie know that his diatribes worked; he really put me in my place. I just don't know if I can continue on now or not...I hope the rest of you are stronger than me.

    I've heard of employers calling their employees "Independent contractors" in order to avoid having to pay stuff like matching FICA and workman's comp insurance.  Never researched it myself because I don't have employees. This should shed some light on what's legal and what ain't. https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/independent-contractor-defined

    heartstrings got a reaction from John Young in Hovind Hypocrisy   
    As I have mentioned before; I have been to Mr. Hovind's creation museum, in Pensacola, at which time I was deeply disturbed to see images of the "Loch Ness Monster", "Mokele Mbembe" and other dubious crypto stuff as "proofs" for whatever it was he was trying to prove. When one is trying to preach Truth, that's just not a good idea, to say the least. I also, there, heard with my own ears Mr. Hovind complaining about "taxes". Mr. Hovind needs to repent and get his act together, like all of us do.

    Yes, this. /\
    Calvinism’s definition of total depravity includes the inability to choose Christ.  You cannot embrace one part of the doctrine without tacitly accepting false doctrines.

    The problem with aligning to those terms is how they are defined by those groups.
    They don't mean what you mean when you say "Totally Depraved", or "perserverance" as a couple of examples.

    Well we got the bad news. The medical bills of the injured party far exceeded the maximum on our liability insurance. We are waiting on the demand letter to come now. Not only that, I forgot to mention that I was hurt the very same night with a massive rotator cuff tear on my right shoulder when I fell off the equipment trailer., Can't lift my hand above head level. I made it through the MRI but still have not been scheduled for surgery. It takes so long between scheduling for tests and dr visits. The dr wants to do a total shoulder replacement but I don't want that.

    heartstrings reacted to No Nicolaitans in Jesus   
    I just performed a quick search (in Matthew) of the name Jesus on my phone's Bible program. This is just an estimate, because I didn't do the actual math. However, I would venture to say that 99% of the instances in which Jesus' name is mentioned, it is his name alone...without Christ (or another title or identifier) attached to his name.

    These verses are so relevant today. People let their pit bulls roam, menace and show aggression, nobody does anything until they maim, disfigure, or kill a child (or adult). Then, after the fact, they call it an "accident".
