  1. I did not even know that this mag was still around. Used to read it in my 20's (30 years ago).
  2. We faithfully hit Sunday AM services (Sunday School and regular services) We hit Sunday evening and Wednesday evening as much as possible, with Sunday evening usually winning out because of mid week work, school, homework schedules. But usually someone can represent on Wednesday, much easier during summer months.
  3. Registered. Classes start 9/2. Excited to start.
  4. Just wanted to insert a clarification. "America in Crimson Red: The Baptist History of America" is authored by James Beller. And, yes, quite an interesting read. I met the author at a conference several years back I attended with my Pastor.
  5. Thanks for the tip on this one. Checking it out. Not interested in accredidation or anything, just a good structured BI program for my busy lifestyle (church, family, household stuff, work, AGE )
  6. One of the reasons I still prefer the Book. Although I have been known to carry both. The tablet is small and thin and does carry some good reference library material.
  7. It is the same as with any tool. IT is how it is used. Now, I PREFER using and carrying a Bible. That said... Using my tablet in church provides many advantages. You can split the screen and have one pane with the primary verse and follow other verses on another pane. You can have a dictionary pane open. Concordance and cross refs are but a touch of a link. Plus, note taking can be simplified as well, all in one convenient tablet. An integrated prayer journal Teaching notes with links to Bible verses and other refference sources available Electronic devices can
  8. I am suggesting nothing. A rather clear statement, i thought Where is it stated? Either way?
  9. No argument there. Many verses on both sides of the aisle. But, when looking at the 5 times in the OT that "sons of God" is used, particularly Job 38, compared to the 6 times in the NT, there appears to be a distinct difference, and never do the two paths cross, so to speak (or at least appear not to).
  10. I do not remeber seeing anywhere that this is stated. God's word says that angels are not given in marraige, says nothing about apparatus or original intent. There could be questions raised as to what angels could or could not do when taking on a physical form, and always in male form.
  11. Just a couple of points for thought. In Job, the "sons of God" presented themselves. They went to God. Where He was. Infer Heaven. In Genesis 18, God specifically cam to us mortals and appeared to Abraham. God came to him, where he was. Earth. Just different ways of looking at things.
  12. I did not know anything about the homosexual stance, but it is difficult to get by without contact of some sort. A year or two ago, AARP was did some sort of marketing ploy with Mrs. Obama. That coupled with their stance on Obamacare, I called them and asked to be removed from their mailing list permanently. I have not received a mailing since. I knew there were other organizations available when I may need to use them. Good riddance to them. Just an FYI. Closing a line of credit is and will be reported to the credit companies. Your permission is not needed. It is part of the no
  13. Yep. That is where I cut my teeth in the IS career field. Even schooled in assembly and JCL, along with Cobol, Fortran, and Pascal. I really liked those ancient languages. We still have and instance or two with Cobol in our shop, but as far as the others, relegated to hobbyists and such, if even that.
  14. With my laptop, the issue has always been my wifi card. None of the mainstream distros would work with it. Ubuntu, Xubuntu, and SolydX would right out of the "box". These are all Debian dirivitives. When I finally went to true Debian, it did not have the driver on disk, but the install told me exactly what I needed. PCs and especially laptops and notebooks, etc are using a log of vendor specific hardware these days. Not as generic as they used to be. And especially now when vendors are designing the hardware to meet the needs of a few specific OS vendors.

  16. I was reading an article about Martin Luther King today. I read this in one of the comments. After I picked up my lower jaw, I wanted to post it. To be quite frank, I had never of of anything like this before. Although they did not state what religion they held to, I can only guess. Like, WOW.
  17. Not from the perspective of the liberal machine. Newtown was exploited simply to help them reach an agenda goal. They could care less about innocent children except when it helps them to achieve something. Pure hypocrisy. Planned Parenthood (another pure evil organization) is also advocating this. And yes, this man is just pure, sick evil.
  18. Read this one again and then think about it some more: The liberal agenda has taken the "it takes a village" adage to new heights of socialistic ideas. There is a big difference in giving and contributing to the community (service, church, etc), which is a value that parents need to instill, and BELONGING to the community. Which is what entitlements, and government indoctrination is all about.
  19. The complete quote was even more telling: "private idea"???? Where does that come from. Oh, yeah, whatever planet it was she came from.
  20. The logical thing to do would be to keep women out of these roles. But in the all inclusive, politically correct, illogical world we live in will be to do like all else and lower the standards, eventually.
  21. We have Abby and Clyde. 1 for each of my girls. Lots of fun, but too noisy. As soon as the sun comes up, yak, Yak, YAK.
  22. We have budgies, but still do not get any newspaper. None really worth the paper and ink they are printed with.
  23. No, she died a few years back of alzhiemers. Pauline Phillips was her real name, she used the pen name Abigail Van Buren. Abigail from 1 Samuel, and van Buren from the president. Her daughter now does the column. Ann Landers was her twin. Just some trivia. I wonder if the use pen names so people won't know who they are for when their advice goes wrong and people get ticked at them.
