  1. I opted for no correction in the new "lenses" but somehow I went from about 20/60 in my left eye, 20/80 in my right eye, to 20/20 left, 20/25 right. I was shocked. I can't remember ever having 20/20 vision ... ever. But I'll have to use readers for close work. I have some DeWalt and other shooting glasses so I should be set. My 69 year old hands aren't that steady either. But I think practice will help. I caught myself flinching a couple of times. The range seemed really loud and I was wearing double ear protection. I need to shoot more!
  2. Range Report: CZ75B and CZ75B Compact I went to the range for the first time since my eye surgery for cataracts. I had not been able to shoot these guns since they were purchased by me a couple of years ago. My glasses don't match my glasses that I used for shooting but I was anxious for some range time. Both guns performed flawlessly and my shooting was much better than expected considering the sights, front and rear, could not be seen clearly. Today I learned that my vision is 20/20 in my left eye and 20/25 in my right eye. I imagine my next range visit with clear lenses will be even better. The CZ75B Compact is an all metal design based on the classic CZ75 made in the Czech Republic. It fits my hand perfectly, like no other handgun. It's about the same size as a Glock 19 but heavier. It has a 14 round magazine for 9 mm with a 4" barrel. It's bigger sibling has a 4.5" barrel, 16 round magazine for 9 mm. Both guns had manual safeties without a manual decocker. Handguns like this would be holster cocked and locked with a round in the chamber, the same as a 1911A1. CZ75B handguns are fine pieces of engineering extremely accurate and pleasant to shoot.
  3. Christians cannot agree which Bible translation to read so it's no wonder we have denominations. So what are the minimum requirements for Heaven? Believe in Jesus ... even Lucifer believes in Jesus! So what beliefs are required, and what beliefs are optional. I would think belief in the Trinity and the Deity of Jesus Christ are requirements. That knocks a couple of denominations out of the Christian fold. Comments anyone?
  4. I wanted to get back to your response from March. It made quite an impression on me. This excellent presentation above shows a deep understanding of the Biblical text. It seems to me that this could not just be arrived at only through the Biblical text. But a deep dive into the Biblical text like you started below with a reference to Strong's, added by the teachings of trusted resources. So we are left deciding what definition to apply to the passage in question.
  5. Well, I finally got to see an ophthalmologist today and the news was all good. Over the past few weeks, I've been seeing a red circle with my left eye only. The red circle slowly turned to brown, then black and now gray and it's hardly noticeable anymore because the circle edge is now much thinner. When then doctor checked my eyes, both were good showing no signs of macular degeneration or damage from my type 2 diabetes. The flashes I occasionally see are related to my migraines, which I suspected, and do not indicate anything going on with my eyes. The doctor recommended I consider replacing my eye lenses since their are starting to show age-related clouding. This would be covered 100% by Medicare. I want to thank everyone who prayed for me. God bless you all!
  6. It's a matter of faith. And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. [NIV, Hebrews 11:6]
  7. Source: Dr. Gorka Stunned by Biden-China Deal Appearing on Fox News Thursday evening, former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, Dr. Sebastian Gorka, said he believes the agreement is a massive scandal. DR. GORKA: “The stepson of John Kerry, the son of Joseph Biden, when they were cabinet members of the Obama administration, create a new investment fund… then inked a billion-dollar deal with the Chinese government — the Bank of China. Then, together they proceeded… to buy a U.S. manufacturing company called Henniges, making very sensitive equipment — crucial to our American military here at home. This, look, I am very rarely at a loss for words Stuart, but this is potentially one of the biggest pay-for-play scandals we have ever seen outside of Uranium One.”
  8. I pray it won't get worse but I'm afraid it will. God be with the people of Venezuela, in Jesus name.
  9. I am glad the U.K. Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt pledged support from his country for war-torn Nigeria on Wednesday, where the Boko Haram arm of the Islamic State has massacred countless scores of Christians. We should not ignore the war against Christians worldwide. I miss former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley for the United States.
  10. Chrislam First, let me point to a website that attempts to define what Chrislam is: Chrislam Secondary Source: More About Chrislam As we approach the second coming of our Lord Jesus for his bride, we begin to see the deceptive devices and inner workings of Satan the prince of lies and his hoard of demons, in a very invasive way. Prophetically we know that the coming world leader, better known as "The Anti-Christ" or "the beast", will come in timely fashion to inherit the already man-established system of the One World Order. An intricate part of this system will be the establishment of a "One World Religion" which will be birthed under a false desire for unity, peace and inclusion of all faiths. These, of course, are the workings of the enemy of the soul, Satan himself. Two decades in the making and now quickly taking notice at the forefront and backed by many well-known apostate church leaders and pastors is "Chrislam". Chrislam is the attempt to intermingle Christian and Islamic principles in efforts to find common ground in what is arguably the two most contradictory faiths in the world. We see scripture materialize before our very eyes in passages such as 2 Timothy 4:3 "For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear." "The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the power of Satan. He will use every kind of power, including miraculous signs, lying wonders, He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them." 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10 So how did this error enter the true Church and who is responsible? Answering Muslims is NOT to meet them halfway, rewriting Christian doctrine to invent Chrislam to meet them in the middle. I do not believe Pastor Rick Warren is doing the Christian faith right by watering down Christianity in the form of Chrislam to make it more palatable.
  11. I like this as a campaign tool because the Democrats need to be pinned down on this issue.
  12. I see no problem with this. Politicians waste money on a lot of unnecessary stuff, while this seems quite necessary.
  13. New York Times Editorial - By Yisroel Goldstein A Terrorist Tried to Kill Me Because I Am a Jew. I Will Never Back Down. I do not know why God spared my life in my Poway synagogue. All I can do is make this borrowed time matter. Rabbi Goldstein is the leader of Chabad of Poway, Calif.
