  1. All I can say is wow! http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2015/08/06/which-presidential-candidate-leads-among-evangelicals-right-now-its-donald-trump/
  2. The music is beautiful and moving however there are a large number of people including me who might not agree with the the War of Northern Aggression is depicted. So I offer this depiction to bring balance:
  3. ​You give me way to much credit for being clever. Such maliciousness as you accuse me of is way beyond my abilities unless you think I am one of Satan's personal emissaries. I am glad you consider me just unchristian and not the Anti-Christ himself. All in all I think thou dost protest to much. And as for my etiquette and education or upbringing or anything else you have or may wish to belittle . . . . go for it. I thank the Lord that he loves me even if no one else does. That is the reason He has given me a thick skin. Be it in the world, or in the church, or on the internet, I have found it is not always safe to state ones honest opinions or feelings.
  4. I accidently put a post ("An Insult") in book and movie reviews. I meant it to be in Current Events. How to correct my error, I don't know.
  5. The Jews had already been baptizing for ritual purity so they could worship at the temple.
  6. Chicken noodle soup and I made some crackers to go with it. Never made crackers before but they are great. Here is the recipe. I only added one seed not all four. Crackers at Home 3 cups all-purpose flour, or a mix of all-purpose and whole grain flours 2 tsp sugar 2 tsp salt 4 Tbs extra-virgin olive oil 1 cup water 1 Tbs sesame seeds 1 Tbs fennel seeds 1 Tbs poppy seeds 1 tsp sea salt 1. Heat the oven to 450°F: Place a rack in the lower third of the oven and heat to 450°F. Sprinkle a baking sheet lightly with flour and set aside. 2. Mix together the dry ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt. 3. Add the oil and water: Add the oil and water to the flour mixture. Stir until a soft, sticky dough is formed. If a lot of loose flour remains in the bottom of the bowl and the surface of the dough, add more water a tablespoon at a time until all the flour is incorporated. 4. Divide and shape the dough into a square: Divide the dough into two halves and set one half aside. Sprinkle your work surface lightly with flour and set the other half on top. Pat it into a thick square with your hands. 5. Roll out the dough: Working from the center of the dough out, roll the dough into a rectangle roughly 1/8-inch thick or thinner. If the dough starts to shrink back as you roll it, let it rest, uncovered, for 5 minutes and then continue rolling. 6. Sprinkle dough with topping (optional): Brush the surface of the dough very lightly with water. Combine the seeds in a small bowl and sprinkle half of them (roughly 1 1/2 tablespoons) evenly over the surface of the dough. See Additional Notes below for additional ideas for toppings and flavorings. 7. Cut the dough into cracker-sized rectangles: Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, cut the dough into individual crackers roughly 1-inch by 2-inches. Alternatively, cut the crackers into squares, diamonds, or use cookie cutters. 8. Transfer crackers to baking sheet and prick with fork: Transfer the crackers to the baking sheet using a metal dough scraper or spatula. It's fine to crowd the crackers very close to each other. Prick each cracker with the tines of a fork to prevent them from puffing during baking. 9. Bake for 12-15 minutes: Bake the crackers in the oven for 12-15 minutes, until the edges are browned. Thinner crackers will bake more quickly than thicker ones; you can remove the crackers as they brown to your liking and continue baking the rest. While the first batch of crackers is baking, roll out and cut the remaining dough. 10. Cool and store the crackers: Transfer the baked crackers to a wire rack to cool completely. The crackers will crisp further as they cool. Store the crackers in an airtight container on the counter for 3-5 days. If you're crackers are a little old and less-than-crispy, lay them on a baking sheet and put them in a 350°F oven for a few minutes to re-crisp Other Ideas for Toppings: dried herbs, chili powder, za'atar seasoning, dukkahCheese Crackers: Add 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese to the flour mixture. Pulse in a food processor until the mixture resembles course cornmeal. Proceed with adding the oil and water as directed Yield: 100 crackers
  7. Yes and also: Prov 26:1 "As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool." KJV
  8. What is not seemly for a fool?
  9. Whoops! Me bad, careless, not thinking well. Let's see if I can rephrase that: Why would I ever call an ox a moron after seeing this? {Copy link here} There I think I got it, didn't I?
  10. I would never call ox's morons. Here is why: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10153116854314757&set=vb.350866824756&type=2&theater
  11. Isn't that an oxymoron and doesn't that say something about the participants?
  12. ​I believe Rahab was the mother of Boaz and therefore in Jesus' genealogy.
  13. ​Thanks, I couldn't think of her name. Who was the woman who hammered home the point to the king?
  14. ​I think that would be the gal who lived in Jericho and helped the spies.
  15. Stir fried chicken and vegetables and rice.
  16. Meatball Stroganoff, Harvard beets, and salad.
  17. Ain't we had enough winter? Shouldn't Mr. Groundhog be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail?
  18. Made some sweet and sour pork tonight. Had rice with it and some raw green pepper and onion.
  19. It might be a mistake to believe that because the Lord has not let you go hungry yet that He never will. PrOBably this is out of context but I am reminded of the words to a silly country song, "I never promised you a rose garden". It seems like some think they are more special in God's eyes than say, the list of the faithful people in the book of Hebrews. Though I don't have a lot of faith like a lot of other people seem to have, I know I am safe in my Saviours hands. He has let me go without many meals, He has let me suffer in many different ways, but it has all been for my good and I thank Him for the lessons. It just seems foolish for anyone especially a Christian to believe that they are beyond suffering because they are God's children. Many of God's children have and will suffer.
  20. Polska kilbasa, sauteed cabbage with bacon and a touch of vinegar and sugar, fried potatoes and onion, with grated carrot and raisin salad. Mmmmmmm . . . . I'm full.
  21. Is that required in this thread?
  22. Ban John for lacking adequate power, capacity, or competence to judge insufficiency properly.
