  1. Rural NC here. Not much of anything is out yet in our area. A few yard signs here an there for one or the other. Suspect that'll change in the next couple of weeks or so. But I doubt we'll see the Obama "frenzy" that was stirred up in our local small towns last election. Polls: Last election, I stopped watching my, then favorite, local news channel. Reporter was almost gloating as she reported the latest poll gave Obama a huge lead. That particular poll was the only one with such numbers. All the other reputable polls had only a small % difference between the candidates. FWIW, learned a lo
  2. John, thanks for the link. After looking around for awhile, I'm going to recommend several items for our church to consider. They range from using their bulletin inserts to incorporating "Creation Moments" and newsletters into some of our Bible study sessions. It was only after being challenged by my pastor on what I "thought" I believed about God's role in creation, that I learned the truth. That involved 50+ years of being "educated" on the facts supporting evolution. Teachers all the way through college taught them. After college, a constant flow of information from many sources reinforci
  3. No, not so wierd. Just another in a string of "discoveries" that may turn out to be nothing more than a forgery. Without supporting documentation, one sjunk the size of a cell phone, isn't enough to do anything more than feed the wild fires of speculation. Possible origins are Egypt which also make it suspect. To be lumped with the gnostic writings of that region and era that some claim should also be part of the NT.
  4. Fixation, it's much more than "women's rights activists". So much more................! The ACLU, among others, is using "discrimination" to destroy the very fabric of this country. It's using the legal system to browbeat anyone who can't afford the legal expenses needed to "take it to court". Often the very threat of legal action is enough for the averge Joe (whether man or small organization) to kneel before them. Heard on the news recently that is isn't agains't the law for women to go topless in public in NC. (Haven't confirmed.) How long will it be before a woman files suit because she
  5. A hunter who fails on an individual trip to the woods, gears up for another hunt to bring down his intended trophy animal. A missed shot just reinforces his resolve once the target has been centered in his sights.
  6. If BHO gets the opportunity to finish fundamentally transforming America how much "opportunity" will be left to form a 3rd party? Do you think the ruling party will allow enough of the Constitution to remain to allow anything resembling true opposition to rise up in the land? We already have "hate speech", limits on assembly, end runs around Congress, a large portion of the population "entitled", a left leaning Supreme Court, liberal media, monitoring of electronic communications, massive databases tracking people's lives, increasing limits on the sale of ammunition (subtle way to restrict
  7. It is a blessing to hear that a couple has been given the opportunity to live for 50 years as husband and wife. That's a living testimony giving glory to God. May our Lord continue to bless your union.
  8. IMHO, as long as you have your body covered with modest clothing, our Lord would prefer that you come to worship Him than to stay at home. While the subject of women in pants is often discussed, (another IMHO) God looks at what's in our hearts before looking at what we have on our bodies. As long as we (men and women) are dressed to reflect that the Holy Spirit is in our heart, that's what counts. That is modest clothing in both fit and coverage of the flesh for both genders. Better half and I went shopping earlier this afternoon at a discount store for some household items. While there, che
  9. You've made a good point, Jerry. In the news this morning there's much talk about spiking gas prices, across the nation, as a result of this storm. Plus, this storm isn't over yet, as it tracks northward, then is expected to turn to the east, bringing flooding rains with it. Earlier you said: Aren't all storms, floods, earthquakes, plagues, droughts, etc. judgements from God? Didn't He release these forces upon the earth when man fell from grace? Is it just coincidence that the eye of a hurricane was over New Orleans the day that was to begin a celebration of depravity? No, I can't eve
  10. If you do read it, how about adding your review, pro or con. TIA
  11. Agree with the others - all things in moderation. Even water can kill you if you drink too much of it. "Caffeine free" soda loaded with high fructose corn syrup may do far more harm to the body than coffee or black/green tea. Or, a glass of wine with dinner for that matter. And that also includes drinking A cold beer on a hot afternoon. (gasp!) Double decker chocolate milkshake with whipped cream, sprinkled with chocolate bits is far worse, IMHO, than a cup or 2 of black coffee in the morning. Maybe one of those should be included with "strong drink" or hard liquor for the effects is has o
  12. I'm not familiar with black powder, muzzle loaders, etc. Plus, it's been almost a year now. Just remember those in the know about the firearms used back then, making comments about this fellows lack of knowledge. Some of his comments about what he (the soldiers) carried and how it was used with the rifle. My impression, from what they said, is this was just a fellow in period dress, giving a "canned" presentation without actually knowing what he was talking about. This was in addition to a Yankee giving Southerners the history of the war. Uhmmmm, sounds like you'd fit right in with some of t
  13. Irishman, those with computers now have a choice. Just as we have a choice to stay with the KJB rather than relying on modern versions for the scriptures. The choice is to look up and study "original" documents. For example, the Federalist Papers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federalist_Papers http://www.ericdigests.org/pre-928/papers.htm http://www.constitution.org/fed/federa00.htm Other examples, are collections of letters written by various founding fathers, early history books, civics books written when civics was a serious subject of study. Go back in time when the word "democracy" was
  14. Just got home and have to leave again shortly for church. So, a quick reply, for now, to your question. Question: Why just harp on the sodomite issue? Answer: Look at the title of this thread. :wave:
