  1. The problem I have with my firstborn is that she is just like I was at her age. She's the bossy big sister first, then she's the reliable one. She fusses and fumes and demands that others obey her.

    I know exactly what she's doing because I did it. We tend to clash because I see right through her, but we are working very diligently on her.

  2. My dream vacation spot is Jamaica. Sandals Dunn's River Resort - near Ocho Rios (8 Rivers.) My hubby and I went to Jamaica on our honeymoon in November 2000. Of course' date=' it was our honeymoon, so it is my favorite, all-around vacation, ever. :lol :thumb Thanks for talking this poll. It was fun. :clap:[/quote']

    My husband works with a fellow from Jamaica who co-owns a hotel there. He's also building a new house. He told us that when he finished the house, we are to visit him there :D :cool

    Otherwise, I'd really love a cruise. Anywhere.
  3. Honestly, I have quit listing prayer requests here because I'm not sure anyone reads them since no one responds. I've listed answers to prayer in the past that go uncommented on which has made me think no one cared to pray in the first place.

    I'm not mad or anything because, well, this is internet and not reality.

    Those people who are real in my life appreciate these things more than a bunch of anonymous people do.

  4. He does, but if he told me I was in charge, there you would have it.

    I don't think it matters as long as husband and wife are in agreement. The Bible never specifically demands that the husband pay the bills.

    If he has the wife doing it and she's completely stressed, then he needs to revisit the issue.

  5. Hi. :smile We don't celebrate the Sabbath Day on Saturday because we are not under Jewish law anymore. Jesus Christ arose from the dead on Sunday; therefore' date=' Christians observe Sunday as a day of worshipping God. BTW, Sunday is referred to as "Resurrection Sunday" for Christians on Easter. :wave:[/quote']

    Exactly. It was not the crucifixion that the early Christians celebrated on Sundays...the Lord's Day. It was the resurrection. After all, Christ Himself says that He is the Resurrection and the life.

    Our day of rest is on Sunday since it was Resurrection Sunday that made it possible for us to truly enter into His rest.
  6. The saints at the rapture.......
    Meet Jesus In the air
    1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
    1Th 4:17 Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
    1Th 4:18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
    If Jesus comes down to the earth at this time, what would be the point of meeting "in the air"??

    Then.....Follow Jesus From Heaven
    Rev 19:13 And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
    Rev 19:14 And the armies [which were] in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

    To the earth
    Zechariah chapter 14

    He comes in the air, for the saints....before the tribulation period.....but he comes down, with the saints, to the earth and sets foot on the Mount of Olives at the end of the 7 year tribulation period.

    Besides all these excellent points, we see that there is a marriage supper of the lamb in heaven during the tribulation period. If the Bride is still on earth, who is celebrating the marriage?
  7. The people this [quote]Satan's wounded head is healing if it's not healed already. Great Tribulation is coming and there will be no place to run. Isn't it strange that it is the Western Church that believes it will be taken before they have to contend unto blood?[/quote]
    was written to had not suffered unto blood yet. The author of the book said that Christ had suffered unto blood. It didn't say they would, it said they hadn't.

    Who says that we believe the church will be raptured just so that we can avoid chastisement? Do you forget that Christ, the author and finisher of my faith took my chastisement upon Himself? My sins are under the blood of the Holy, perfect Savior. My penalty has been paid.

    My works will be tried in heaven, but my sins are under the blood of Christ.

    Or is His blood insufficient?

  8. [quote="KJB_Princess"]
    That's not true. I believe the best way to tell if a translation in another language is good is by comparing it with the KJV. That doesn't mean that everyone has to learn English. [/quote]

    In my thinking, that statement lends itself to the criticism that the original languages were insufficient.

    I don't think we ought to be comparing a translation to a translation but to the original manuscripts.

  9. You know' date=' if any state was gonna try to pass this law, California would be it. Look at California and you'll see what America is gonna be like. America is headin' down the tubes folks. We gotta do something about it, revival needs to happen fast.[/quote']

    Um, Marcus, do you not pay attention to the ridiculous laws that get passed in your own state? Doctor assisted suicide, for instance...

  10. This is also why I wrote my own math curriculum. Video based curricula spoon-feed the mind and can even lull the brain into laziness, whereas a study method designed to get the student to read and "experiment" with intricate concepts will stimulate creativity processes.

    My advice::: Get rid of the TV and write your own curricula. :Green

    :Bleh We don't watch tv...and if I were to write my own math curriculum, you would die laughing at my idiocy. My husband can do all sorts of math and he believes it is inherent in our beings...but he doesn't have the patience to teach them school subjects.

    He can take them out to learn to ride bikes, shoot guns, throw frisbees, catch balls, and run lathes and mills...
  11. I've heard wonderful things about the math in Abeka' date='ABeka was the start of her troubles. The kids in her class at school were extremely bright (she included) so that when she began to get behind in math, they couldn't hold everyone back to get her caught up. We worked at home, but she got discouraged and never really caught up.
    Is the score from the test broken down to show where she is struggling most? It is broken down and she messed up on all of it. We thought she was going to have some improvement because her confidence really sky-rocketed at home this year...and as I checked her work at home, there seemed to be a correllation.Another thing to consider is this... If she tested at a third grade math level, you may need to take a couple steps back and return to your 3rd grade math workbooks. Get her solid in the third grade level before moving on, then get her solid in the 4th grade level.I've looked at the LifePacs and I think she could go back into the 4th grade of those and be fine. The 3rd grade LifePacs are things she doesn't struggle with.

    Is there anyone at your Church who is good at math that could help? Sometimes with young children just having a young adult who is closer to their age explain it makes all the difference.

    As for anyone at church, due to some issues at home, that may not be an option right now. Sorry I can't go into details.
  12. I thought we were making progress with my 5th grader and her math, but her achievement test returned and she's still in the hole. She tested at a third grade level.

    So, I'm thinking LifePac to get her caught up, but maybe you all have suggestions on better math resources.

  13. Does anyone here enjoy any type of creative writing? Some examples being poetry' date=' short stories, articles..etc..etc...[/quote']

    I love to write. I keep my blog just to indulge myself in that area. :thumb
  14. I'm not really against organ donation, but I haven't yet gotten around to actually signing up to be a donor. I'm a little leery of getting harvested before I'm actually dead...

    Okay, here's my weird theory for the day. The Bible talks about the heart being very much the centre of a person's being, right? Now, I know that 'the heart' in that case is not supposed to be the physical heart, but what if our soul is somehow tied up with our physical heart (during this time on earth). Couldn't that create some sort of problem in the case of a heart transplant? As in, could one 'inherit' sinful tendencies that one does not usually struggle with, or something like that? (I know it's weird, but it's no further off than eyes popping out during the rapture! :lol: )

    Mike Schrock believes it's the brain....

  15. Man is not the ruling authority, the local church is, all authority is not given to the pastor, but to the local church. And as long as they make no rules that cause you to sin and or go directly against Bible teaching, they're within their right.

    That's what I said...when you can start making rules about such petty things--extra-biblical things--you have left your first love. And frankly, when they begin to make and enforce such silly rules, they do cause many to sin by teaching them that you can't be godly if you aren't on board with their pettiness. Otherwise, why not teach it as a preference instead of as a law or rule?
