  1. As Alan posted, they are here: Please go to the link and read the rules - it's good for all members to know them. It really does not matter if you see a difference in the wording of two different versions, as you mentioned to Alan. Nor does it matter if Jesus spoke Old English (which all of us know He did not) or Hebrew, Latin, Greek, or Russian. The fact is that OB is a KJV site. Refrain from using other versions. Thank you.
  2. I love the book of Proverbs! I used to go through it monthly, but now don't every month. However, I still love to read it. I like other proverbs as well, especially those that have a biblical truth to them. "Two wrongs don't make a right." "No man is an island." "The squeaky wheel gets the grease." I use this one often. =D "Better late than never." I heard a nice addition to this years ago: "But better never late." "There's no such thing as a free lunch." "Discretion is the better part of valor." Just a few of the ones I like.
  3. Here in WA state, our governor began with the "two weeks to flatten the curve" nonsense. We complied with the two weeks because we felt that we needed to show our concern for the community. Well, the two weeks stretched to more. Hubs prayed about what to do, and on Mothers' Day we held a parking lot service... That was the "compromise" that the governor came up with because of protests. Outside services were "allowed," but not inside. The following week it was raining, so we went inside...and have been there since. So far, the governor has issued 26 emergency declarations, in order
  4. My uncle has gone to Glory. Thank you for your prayer.
  5. I am currently talking to my brother...no symptoms whatsoever. =D
  6. Thank you. Glad to know you're home and recovering. Will be praying for you. ~~~~ And the other day we received the news that my oldest brother had tested positive. He is showing no symptoms, and is going to get a second test (because so many of the positives are false). But he is also going to see his doctor and getting on a regimen of things to combat the virus if it is indeed in him.
  7. Well, I guess the medical world doesn't realize that. Imagine that...an archaic word being used in modern times. Unprecedented. lol
  8. I don't think so, either - although that is where things head when one decides to "make it more understandable.' If it ain't broke (and it ain't) don't "fix" it.
  9. I haven't commented on here so far...folks are doing a well enough job without my input. lol However, I had to comment on this one... Bruit is still in use today. Oh, maybe not in everyday speak, but it is used. Anyone who has had things done to/with their veins, heart/ or has had stroke issues would likely know this word. A bruit is a noise...hmmm...fits the definition you gave, Salyan. It is a noise heard through a stethoscope which can indicate a clogged artery. It can also indicate an imminent stroke (something that I actually learned about 25 years ago). So, in effect, it is
  10. My aunt got mixed up about the days - they actually did not remove him from the oxygen til this morning. However, he passed as soon as they did. Thankfully his wife was able to be with him. Thank you for praying.
  11. So my Dad's remaining brother contracted covid, as did his wife. (Just FYI - this is not a thread about covid, so don't make it so...just know that masking, "social" distancing, isolation, etc., were all practiced by the family and yet he and his wife contracted covid. Viruses are gonna virus...) My uncle, Dave, ended up in ICU on a respirator. Today I was told that they had to take him off everything - they had to remove air from around his heart and lungs, so the oxygen had to be removed. He had suffered a number of strokes and there is no brain activity. And they said it is only a matt
  12. I'm sorry, but I would have to disagree with you here. Not about getting the vaccine, which is up to the individual, but about "no kind words" for those who "for religious reason" won't get them. Their reasons for NOT getting vaccines are just as valid as your reasons FOR getting them. Were you not the one who said earlier, "Each, according to the dictates of one's own conscience"? The two postings do not match... And I gotta say - comparing Jesus' - the Creator of the universe- healings to manmade vaccinations? Nah. Just nah.
  13. I didn't make it past the second line. I'm so tired of people who think they know things they don't. This man, whomever he is, has no idea who the Proud Boys are. Nazis? Traitors? Hogwash. Some people need to stop swallowing all the garbage the MSM spews.
  14. I think you need to re-learn the definition of "gutter comments." There was nothing about the gutter in his comment (other than the sad fact that our Congress is putting us there with their ridiculous "rules" about not calling anyone father, mother, sister, daughter, son)...and as was pointed out by myself and another - it was IN THE EXACT SAME VEIN AS YOUR OPENING COMMENT. You have taken something that could have been enjoyable and fun and made it, yet again, a test about your superior spirituality. Again, if you don't want those kinds of comments, stop making them yourself. And I would
  15. Jim, this is the mantra of the left...and, sadly, among many on the right as well as Christians. "la,la,la,la" with blindfolds on as evidence is presented..."I don't see any proof..." sigh
  16. Considering that Nancy's the one pushing for banning the usage of words like father in favor of those he listed, his answer was quite as funny as your OP. I really do not think you need to rebuke him for it...unless, of course, you want someone to rebuke you for being nasty and comparing the brains of congress to 6th graders? If you don't want silly answers to your jokes/silly thoughts, don't post 'em.
  17. It seems that since this virus has become known (notice I did not say since it's been here...because it was here before the "experts" claim), there is no other way of dying. No other sickness. In fact, pharmacists have been saying that they are no longer selling tamiflu...apparently flu and colds no longer exist. It's a miracle! Not really - that was sarcasm, for the folks who don't know. However, covid has taken over the airwaves and the minds of many. To the exclusion of all else. Gunshot deaths are labeled covid - because $$. By far too many other deaths are labeled at least covid-r
  18. Could we replace the Congressmen that lose with the 6th graders? I'm in! hehehe (not really )
  19. That was not me and I will not say again to move it to another thread. End of discussion about the efficacy of vaccines in this thread.
  20. Sigh. Yet more erroneous extrapolation. NOBODY said not to take the vaccine, so let's just stop that, ok? Discussion of vaccine failures belongs in another thread. Please don't derail this thread by continuing that discussion. (Please is simply a courtesy...it's not a request.)
  21. We don't agree with the vaccine, and do believe there are ways to protect oneself from a variety of viruses, not just covid - Vit. C, Vit. D3 (studies are showing that the majority of people who contracted covid were D deficient), tonic water, zinc. That is us, though. But here's the thing, robycop: You and your wife are the only ones who can decide what you should do. If, after prayer, you believe you should stay home, then that is what you need to do. If your pastor, after prayer, decides God would have him go to online services, then that is what he should do. I know of churches that d
  22. It's arriving here in WA on Tuesday. Poor people who are foolish enough to take it. Employers have been given the green light to mandate it. It's not enough that our governor is destroying our economy by shutting things down; now employers will be firing people who won't allow themselves to be jabbed with something questionable. People have just gone nuts.
  23. I don't really care what the washington post says about anything, thanks. AND IT'S NOT OVER TIL THE SENATE CERTIFIES...already TWO senators have stated they are considering challenging...so just stop already.
