    Fall is upon us. Comfort food! Yum

    We used to be able to buy them at a hamburger place and to get buffalo in the grocery stores but no longer. I love them as well, and it is very lean.

    oops, I left out the egg. Just bought the hamburger to make one!

    I grill it buttered but not inside. My husband buttered both sides of the bread. Never heard of mayo on it but I like miracle whip on cold cheese sandwiches.

    Care to share your meatloaf recipe? I have several but always look for more. My husband liked it made with cream of mushroom soup and crackers. I like the classic with oatmeal, chopped onions and catsup with BBQ on top. My mom made it with chopped canned tomatoes, bread and onions. Love meatloaf.

    Comfort food: a grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of tomato rice soup with basil.

    Forgiveness Doesn't Mean Trust... Really?

    2Ti 4:14 Alexander the coppersmith did me great harm; the Lord will repay him according to his deeds. 2Ti 4:15 Beware of him yourself, for he strongly opposed our message. We must forgive to avoid becoming bitter and falling short of God's grace. When the person who wronged us has not asked for forgiveness there is little chance of their changing, and many people are dangerous to ourselves and our children. We should not put ourselves or our families in the path of danger. Heb 12:15 looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled Wilkerson was putting the church's possessions in the hands of people of doubtful trust. He did so under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. That is not to be compared to people who are dangerous and who have harmed us. I agree that they need to earn our trust. They do not need to earn our forgiveness. That is to be freely given even as God in Christ Jesus forgave us. We may be able to forgive a serial killer for killing one of our children. But I would have to see a real change in him before I turned him loose with another. Even though there are stories of Charles Manson, Bundy and others coming to Christ, I doubt if I could trust them. Even the apostle Paul who had persecuted Christians was not trusted in the Jewish Christian community because of his reputation. God instead sent him to the gentiles.

    Reading your Bible

    I also use e-sword while at home, and usually compare Amplified, English Standard Version and New King James. But I also check LITV, Wuest, and YLT. Word Study Dictionary N.T. by Spiros Zodiahates is my go to lexicon, as well as Vine's, Ropertson's Word Pictures, Vincent's Word Studies, and Wuest's Word Studies are also valuable. The commentaries I find most valuable are Barnes Notes and Jamison, Faucet and Brown. All are on my E-Sword but I have hard copies of most of them as well which I rarely use because they are too heavy and awkward compared with a computer program.

    Welcome, Shadow. To me walking after the Spirit is to go where God's compassion leads us and doing what His compassion does. It is Christ in us living His life here on earth.

    Worthy Christians

    Rom 5:6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Rom 5:7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—Rom 5:8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Rom 5:9 Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. No one is worthy of His love. We are made worthy by the blood of the Lamb which takes away the sins of the world. God is love. He can do no less than love us whom He created, and whom are defiled by the enemy. So we are redeemed by the blood of Christ. Heb 10:19 Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, Heb 10:20 by the new and living way that he opened for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, Heb 10:21 and since we have a great priest over the house of God, Heb 10:22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.

    I have a complain re; change of status

    Dearest friend, I protested your being labeled non trinitarian to staff and came to your defense. I was asked to ask you the question. It was not intended to offend, A simple yes or no answer was all that was asked. I hoped to vindicate you. We both tend to be wordy which sometimes confuses people. I know you are hurt and am praying this will be resolved quickly. It was placed publicly so all the staff could read it as well as whomever misunderstood you in the first place. Love, Willa By the way, we are only required to believe the Bible, not the Athanasian Creed. I subscribe to the trinitarian part of that creed but it is not required here that I know of. It is enough to believe that the Godhead consists of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one God, as is in our statement of faith.

    I have a complain re; change of status

    I was asked to ask you if you believe that Jesus is God the Son: the Word was God, the Word was with God, the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us full of grace and truth. Joh 1:1 AMP IN THE beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. [Isa 9:6] Joh 1:2 He was present originally with God. Joh 1:3 All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being. Joh 1:4 In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. Joh 1:14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; and we [actually] saw His glory (His honor, His majesty), such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving-kindness) and truth. [Isa 40:5]

    Being Perfect

    1Jn 3:23 And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. 1Jn 3:24 Whoever keeps his commandments abides in God, and God in him. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us.
