  1. I respectfully disagree with most of your reply. Yes, Communism is philosophically a Godless philosophy and most, but not all members are godless in their belief ... or lack there of. I met a young woman in China in 1995. She was a party member, but had accepted Christ while studying in Germany. She was in a quandary about what to do. Her job depended on being a party member and her mother and father were party members. We had a long talk over several days. My final advice to her was that is was possible that she was exactly where God wanted her to be. In that job she would be able to influenc
  2. To me, the SBC, has become so creedal and so involved with government politics I feel they should drop the name Baptist as well.
  3. Have you seen the big blue rooster on top of the East Wing of the National Gallery of Art?
  4. But, it was Trump who said he wants to do away with the tax and that would destroy SS for all.
  5. Not if Trump has his way. When you are retired will you be able to survive without SS helping you? Most people do not save enough so they can live without it. Not everyone makes enough to save, but many do and still do not save and invest. My wife and I established financial ground-rules we would live by early in our marriage. We had to as we were very much on the edge at that time. I'll list those ground-rules if you'd like to see them.
  6. Yes, Congress, and you realize it is a GOP led Congress has raided SS. And, in your opinion, Trump was telling a lie when he made the statement? It was not the left that made the statement, but Trump himself. You mean unemployment? That will run out. What about the elderly who are able to eat only because they receive Social Security?
  7. I have friends and family living in all three of those far west states. It is a tragic situation. It has nothing to do with God. It has to do with the neglect and the refusal to believe and act on global warming. Computer models predicted this situation and also the increasing number of destructiveness of hurricanes and other storms. God gave us brains and we should use them. Yes, we should pray. But also we should act, though it is very late in the game, to begin the mitigation of the results of mankind's previous inaction. May all of you on the board who live in those state r
  8. I do not know how many people here are dependent on getting through each month because they receive a Social Security check. I expect there are some and I am sure all who are here know of people, have friends and fellow church-members who would be in serious trouble if that monthly check disappeared. I am very concerned as it seems Trump wants to destroy Social Security. https://thehill.com/blogs/congress-blog/politics/515843-fact-checking-the-fact-checkers-trump-does-indeed-plan-to?fbclid=IwAR3ASB3nFQQplj-HQUwWn7Uyf9ITtPToSSg-ceF1-WGgjeKmYWhhFCEwJ3E He has not said this directly, bu
  9. A young women, who loved to read, ask her boyfriend, "Tell me some books that made you cry." The young man scratched his head and replied, "Let's see, oh yes, Organic chemistry Quantum mechanics
  10. When Paul made the statement about being given food, who was he directly speaking to?
  11. Yes, he takes the verse out of context and to me implies that this is a universal statement saying that anyone who "will not" or "cannot work" should not be given food. Proof-texting is dangerous. We can prove anything by taking verses out of their contest. Also, by taking this one verse out of context multiple passages in the Bible are ignored at best or implied to be meaningless at worst. I am neither impressed nor pleased with proof-texting. [All this very gently said.] I could show the logical conclusion this out-of-context verse leads to but I do not want to infuriate some on the bo
