I know I'm showing my age now, but when I was in grade school (public school) we still had Christmas parties. Every child was to bring an inexpensive gift; boys were to bring a boy's gift and girls were to bring a gift for a girl. Invariably, some child's mother always thought it would be a good idea for the gift to be something practical instead of some toy a child would really want. Therefore her precious one would bring a pair of socks. Needless to say, no one else wanted to receive that gift and two people went home disappointed - the one who received the socks after giving a toy and the one who brought the socks because no one wanted their gift.

I remember such. There was one kid in our class that no matter what he got, he ALWAYS complained. One year he got a really cool helicopter toy and most of us boys were thinking how much we wish we had got that and he just sat there looking at it complaining.

    • KJV ME!

      Now it is time for me to step out of my shell and let go... I AM STRICT KJV!... In scripture God said he would preserve his word... Well did he or didn't he?... If there is every translation under the sun, then he didn't but I KNOW HE DID!... The preserved word of God called the KJV is for the English people has been around for over 400 years and what is interesting to me, is the KJV was translated in 1611 and the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock in 1620... Coincidence?... A new book the preserved KJV word of God for the New World... So take that you KJV naysayers... I have been reading, studying and digging through the KJV for over 50 years... My belief is 100% Christ and scripture says so... Glad to be here and its time to take these shackles off!   
      John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

      Praise God I found such a powerhouse of the outpouring of His Spirit and unapologetic in regards of the defense of the KJV Bible. When I became a Christian back in 1984, I was told to get & read the KJV. It's been my choice all these years.

      Also, the land in Egypt wasn't land God gave them it was land Joseph through Pharaoh gave them. God gave them Canaan.
