  1. Well I tell ya, it is like this -it don't matter what one listens to or plays someone is going to have a wild hair objection to it. So if it lifts your spirit makes you happy gives you a good countenance toward our Lord and savior enjoy. Hum, sing, play, make a joyful noise. and let the grump go grump grump grump grump. Tell them there is a musical rhythm to their grumping, it will drive them into silence for at least a bit. Martin Luther had objection to the church organ, called it the devil's instrment, Church of Christ has various rules against instruments because they say the New Testament is silent on the subject of instruments and they only speak of what the Bible speaks of- go figure that one out humming abit as you do. Seems there is both a direct assault upon our enjoyment of worship nd an indirect one by way of music that is not praising of our creator and instead often a direct denial of Him. I never enjoyed "church" music until recently when i changed churches to a really livelu group that praises God in song - worship- so intense it makes me very aware of the Holy Spirit moving among us. now i sing perhaps just joyful noise, but I love it for my God seems to be showing us that He loves it too. BTW- as a personal preference I love to listen to George's wife's music ( Bath Rika Whitten) as I am driving along the highway, keeps me calm and in praise mode, and yes I am a Fernando Ortega groupie also. Music is good in fact excellent for the mind body and spirit and soul. Bring on the drums, bring on the bass, Get Rhythm in your shoes dance to the Lord sing and praise. Hey even bring on the shofar listen for the trump.
  2. Hi, Nope. No "we" in this one. I thank God for sending me to my doctors. I praise God for providing them, and to me the means to pay properly for their excellent services.
  3. Perhaps they all didn't take their seminary exams themselves but instead paid a company to write their papers for them, and thus they cheated their way through to being ordained. Perhaps it is that without the cheating "they never would have graduated" and have gained access to the opportunity to harm others.
  4. What do I think? What I would do is; read Matthew 18 for a review of procedure to follow then pray about it pray for the person and proceed with the steps of Matthew 18 by going directly to the person taking the drug. and then if they do not see the error of their ways plus I still believe them wrong I would take two or three with me and talk again, and if that does not do it and I still believe them to be wrong doing I would take it to the entirety of the church through the elders. If I still believeI'm right and the entirety of the church is wrong, then I would resign my membership in that body and go elsewhere. Thanking God for his moving me, and I would pray for my former church body thanking God for them. My own understanding is muttled at best about what is illegal yet may be of great benefit. Is it better to take a class 2 or class 3 drug by way of prescription than it is to take or use an illegal drug? I don't know! I have had to administer morphine in massive doses to one I loved, and I sought out whatever might help them through their pain. Weirdly a hospital is limited as to quantity they can administer, yet hospice is far less so, and I can do whatever and still be legal. Also I can personally take Ibuprofen 15 at a time, or take legal Hydrocodone, but I still can't legally use a common illegal and cheap street drug for debilitating back injury. So I just don't have any idea what the person you are describing is sharing about. Maybe they have a similar dilemma. Might read Matthew 18 and do that. The person may discuss it with you.

    My dad

    Hi, Sorry for your loss of your mom, too. Praying for your dad's journey as he now has to go forward without his mate. May God enable you to be helpful to him as well as finding the grace to suffer his need to try to go on. Note: I have been the son whose parent find they had to go on forward, and I have also been the father that lost his mate and did remarry. None of it comes easy it seems. Children are affected, protectively concerned. Makes for some bit of difficulty for all. Praying for you and your father. May you do better than I did as the son.
  6. That is what you just did! Please stay with the subject. I think I was actually the first to post reference in the Bible to prove out the subject. Lets get calm and stay with it, eh?
  7. Actually my post didn't miss out it deliberately did not include it thinking that those that read th Bible know that it is those that do not well it won't matter, might be better if someone looks for it on their own.
  8. My I had no idea I was jumping on you. I concurred with you. Then added my own thoughts from there. Really has nothing to do with you at all.
  9. Yes, of the Bible that Jesus read, used, and spoke of, part of the 22 books ( Scrolls) the Bible that He studied, and what we tend to call the Old Testament today having subdivided it into 39 books now referenced as Old Testament books.
  10. Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me; all day long an attacker oppresses me; my enemies trample on me all day long, for many attack me proudly. When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me? All day long they injure my cause; all their thoughts are against me for evil. They stir up strife, they lurk; they watch my steps, as they have waited for my life. For their crime will they escape? In wrath cast down the peoples, O God! You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book? Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call. This I know, that[d] God is for me. In God, whose word I praise, in the Lord, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me? I must perform my vows to you, O God; I will render thank offerings to you. For you have delivered my soul from death, yes, my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.
  11. Hi, It is true that one will have to read the Bible. Perhaps start by looking it up, going to the Bible, reading it personally and deciding through reading, prayer, thinking about what has been read.
  12. It is relatively easy to look up on the internet. There are both Bible references and commentaries by expositors and scholars on the books. Why not start with a simple search perhaps on DuckDuckGo.com search engine for Book of Tears? And as part of that read Matthew Henry's dissertation. It i spretty interesting stuff, have fun!
  13. Oh piles, heaven forbid. It's your fault BeauJangles I was going to let the thread get serious on the subject of prophecy fulfilled in today's vehicle tarrific. But no, you had to tempt me egg me on, and well I just am weak. I cannot resist even a bad play on words it seems.
  14. You cannot make your child Christian regardless. Salvation is of the Lord. He saves who He will. Being brought up "christian" or in a Christian home is not the same as being called to repentance by the Holy Spirit and turning about to see Jesus revealed as one's Lord and savior, and then confessing that personally. Each child if they are granted time to grow faces their own plight and gets to see the unsaved world too. Many a child wanders from our Lord, but He does not wander the Holy spirit will call. So simply be what God has led you to be and share plus pray with your child. The Holy Spirit will call them specifically at the time already known and predestined by God for His own. Relax a little - enjoy the day each day as the adventure marches on, and upon you. Don't make so much work of it that neither you nor your child much enjoys life.
  15. And have a gentile on the payroll to flush. Seriously, I have no interest in how a servant of another perceives they best honor their master. Less they insist on stepping on my toes by telling me I must serve my master the way they serve theirs.
