    Is Time To Talk Impeaching Trump

    I was just wondering, so thanks for your answer. Fair question, seeing as this is primarily a "spiritual" themed forum, and you have only posted on political stuff. And further, your comments are politics are not always accurate. You state in categorical terms that "...he will abolish the two-term limit and appoint himself as the prime master leader for life...…." This is NOT EVEN A POSSIBILITY for any president - for you to state this is such terms is a misleading way of representing him as far worse than he is actually ABLE TO BE. Now, this may be his desire, although I have never heard any report of such, but even that does not change the FACT - it is not possible for him to do, and you are thusly misrepresenting him in the WORST POSSIBLE TERMS on this matter. Is it acceptable for you to do plainly what you accuse him of doing? Is it OK for you, but not OK for him? I am no great fan of Trump, but I do like to see people being treated fairly, and what you have posted here is neither balanced, nor fair to Trump, and it is certainly not all truthful. But then again, I actually do care very little about it - he is not my president, I had no say in his appointment, he does not directly influence any of my life, I will have no say as to who replaces him, or when he is replaced, and my opinion is worth absolutely nothing in the whole scheme of things - I am not involved in his presidency in any way.

    Re-introducing myself

    Heya - good have you back. I remember a bit of discussion about your situation and thinking how much I respected your conviction on the matter. It was a conviction that you had and it would seem that the Lord has blessed you for it. Congrats on almost two years.

    Either that or a button somewhere that says "Forum headings" or something like that. But I am slowly getting used to it.

    Good idea, just so long as you add it back in... 😂😂

    When I browse on the phone, I will often scroll to the top and simply press on the blye panel with the words "Online Baptist - Independent Baptist Community". This used to take me to the root of the forum list, where I could see the titles of each area. Now when I do that it takes me to what I think is the "recent posts". This is not a real problem for me, it is just working differently to before. Thanks. I just realised that it is taking me to the "Home" panel, which is what I assume it is supposed to do......

    Happy Mother's Day (in Australia)

    All of which is ACTUALLY irrelevant to "High Tea" today. For our 25th anniversary, I was blessed to be able to take my wife to Singapore, and one of the things I was able to do for her was take her to High Tea at the Raffles hotel. From a website (here): "High Tea Society was delighted to sit down for high tea at internationally renown Raffles Hotel in Singapore. Serving high tea for more than one hundred years, Raffles’ high tea has an old world charm and real sense of occasion to it. After being ushered to a table of crisp white linen in the hotel’s Tiffin Room, we were offered a three tiered stand consisting of sandwiches and small cakes, such as an orange chocolate friand topped with raspberries, a layered mango mousse cake and a strawberry tart." So for more than a hundred years the Raffles Hotel in Singapore has been doing a special "High Tea" and it is most definitely NOT an "everyday meal taken by millions of people". The Raffles Hotel in Singapore is one of the most exclusive in the world - when we went for High Tea we approached the front entrance and were met by a doorman who politely asked us why we were there, and when we answered that we were there for High tea we were directed along the outside verandas around the corner to an entrance from outside the hotel. Only guests are allowed to enter the actual foyer of the Hotel. And it ahs a list of guests that range from the historically important to the modern day famous. We didn't stay there - I am not that rich. High Tea was quite enough expense for me.......... But my wife was absolutely over the moon ecstatic about being able to have High Tea at the Raffles, Singapore. And it wasn't any sort of main meal...... We were shown to a table for two, right near the Harpist, and then a three tiered stand was brought to our table, and tea or coffee was offered, and there was large set of tables filled with other goodies that you could go and get. Everything is basically bite sized - tiny cup cakes, canapés, little pastries, scones, and various of what would be considered Hors d'oeuvres and the like. You get the idea. My wife felt as though she had been thoroughly spoiled - I still don't get it, but I was happy because she was happy, and that is enough for me. Regardless of what the history may be, it is universally understood today that High Tea is a "high society" kind of thing, performed in such a way as to be a "spoiling event" for those who consider themselves of the more genteel kind. What Invicta has kindly provided is the difference between afternoon tea and "tea" or "dinner" - which we all know and understand - everyone knows what afternoon tea is - coffee and biscuits (cookies for you Americans). If you do a quick google, you will find his irrelevant material, but mostly you will find the description of a fine affair of many small tasties and danties served in fine surrounds and performed in the style of a small and upper crust event. If you go to any Café around which is advertising High Tea, you will not get a main meal, but an elaborate and fine "Afternoon Tea" . It will most likely be somewhere between the hours of 2 and 4 as well.

    Happy Mother's Day (in Australia)

    It all depends on the distance between the teapot and the teacup when pouring.......😂 Seriously, I don't understand the appeal, but ladies seem to love it.

    Happy Mother's Day (in Australia)

    We had a high tea on Saturday for the ladies - almost 50 ladies turned up from 3 churches in our area, along with friends invited (some unsaved ladies). And Sunday we had a "Mother's day service", which was a normal church service with the addition of a gift bag I made up for the Mums. And left overs from the High Tea......
  9. Happy Mother's Day to all the Mums out there. Not sure if it is Mother's Day in other places because some of these days differ from country to country, but it is here in the land of Oz, so...... Happy Mother's Day. I hope I didn't send anyone into a panic.....🤣

    Is Time To Talk Impeaching Trump

    Correct me if I am wrong, but this is not even possible for him to do. It is not within his power to do so, and the constitution is written to ensure that no man has this power. As such, this part of the discussion is 100% irrelevant. It doesn't matter what he wants to do.....

    Can I ask if you have any spiritual interest, or are you only interested in political issues?

    Oil all gone in 30 years, what next?

    I was entirely on topic here, and apparently entirely ignored........ And entirely on topic here as well, but also entirely ignored.
  13. Bruce Jenner - you know the one - that guy who made huge headlines because he reckons he is not - is now set to get married. Now wait for it - this guy who says he is a girl wants to get married...... to a 21 year old girl. So now the guy who says he is a girl turns out to like girls enough to want to marry (another) one. Shows the lie about where his head is - he really does know what he is, he just doesn't want to accept it. If what he says about himself was true he would be "marrying" a guy not a girl. Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; And the rest of the passage of course...... Oh the affect of sin on this wretched world. This man needs to be saved. By the way the link is here if you really want to read it - I confess that I haven't - the headline was enough for me. So be very careful about the link - I don't actually know what sort of detail is in it. (It is a "reputable" news site so shouldn't be "Computer dangerous"). Note: I don't want to offend people, and I have therefore added his name in the title so that people know before they enter roughly what the subject is. I am sorry if the subject offends you - it offends me too, but I wanted to point this one thing out.

    The rules are exceedingly clear - the KJV is to be used. It is YOUR responsibility to ENSURE that you quote from the KJV. It is not Jim's approval, and certainly not my approval that is needed. The rules are plain.

    Yeah I did wonder about that after I posted. The perriwinkle I know is not a bivalve, but is quite flat, and the critter inside is more like an oyster. Anyway, I have not enjoyed snails when I have had them...........
