  1. Not even an inactive one. Anything bowl shaped traps heavier than air pollutants. I see no reason to go down into them to see if they are toxic to me.
  2. Perhaps their website was hacked.
  3. But nothing today is wrench worthy. There are no moving parts to tinker with, not even old time circuitry. Labor to repair something is priced at between $125 to $200 for the first half hour. No parts are in stock ever, most aren't even made until ordered. It always takes two or more trips for service to be completed. It is just the way it is, replacing is cheaper and better too, for replacements are always more energy efficient than was the original item. Why one cannot even fertilize their own home yard anymore, what with the government restrictions on all but certified commercial application companies. The fertilizers and pesticides cannot even be sold to the end consumer much of the year. Whether that is good or bad I do not know. I only know I have to pay another to do what used to be a simple homeowner's task. The guts to a toilet used to be pretty standard. Not so now. One has to order from the factory half the parts, and wait. Or just call the plumber and wait, or just buy a whole new more efficient more complicated toilet. It is not laziness, it is just that there is no commonality anymore. The tools in the garage sit rusting for they are not good for anything today. Can't hardly make use of the woodshop either, just can't compete with the knockdown furniture at places like Ikea. It's a brave new world all around, worldwide.
  4. I am not spoiled rotten nor wasteful. I am an American.
  5. Well I guess the oddity of that Methodist Church's display has at least some writing and thinking about the homeless and the refugee, and the wanderers.
  6. But that is not what your thread title communicates. King James Onlyism supported
  7. Okay. I "think" it is ( at least in part ) commanding of me to live my life in a manner that reflects the decent upbringing by my parents, to do honor to their sacrifices made for me that I too may sacrifice for my own offspring.
  8. God is sovereign over all His creation, all things are made as God wills and speaks into existence. He may make each creation for high purpose or low. He may cast away that which displeases Him. He may raise up that which pleases him, to be with Him for eternity to come.
  9. Hi, I suggest it will not be by the hardness of your prayer, but in spite of it if it happens; however God might just as likely put you into prison, and tie you to a jailer if that may help. Corinthians 1:22-25 English Standard Version (ESV) For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. e do walk by faith and not by sight. Sight cannot increase faith ( It can only decrease it by replacing it. The greater for the lesser.), but faith can and does increase sight. The Sign of Jonah Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered him, saying, “Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.” But he answered them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. The men of Nineveh will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here. The queen of the South will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here. Our Heavenly Dwelling For we know that if the tent that is our earthly home is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this tent we groan, longing to put on our heavenly dwelling, if indeed by putting it on we may not be found naked. For while we are still in this tent, we groan, being burdened—not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, 7 for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.
  10. Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch "Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Rise and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is a desert place. And he rose and went. And there was an Ethiopian, a eunuch, a court official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was in charge of all her treasure. He had come to Jerusalem to worship and was returning, seated in his chariot, and he was reading the prophet Isaiah. And the Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and join this chariot.” So Philip ran to him and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?” And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. Now the passage of the Scripture that he was reading was this: “Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter and like a lamb before its shearer is silent, so he opens not his mouth. In his humiliation justice was denied him. Who can describe his generation? For his life is taken away from the earth.” And the eunuch said to Philip, “About whom, I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?” Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this Scripture he told him the good news about Jesus. And as they were going along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, “See, here is water! What prevents me from being baptized?” And he commanded the chariot to stop, and they both went down into the water, Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him. And when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord carried Philip away, and the eunuch saw him no more, and went on his way rejoicing. But Philip found himself at Azotus, and as he passed through he preached the gospel to all the towns until he came to Caesarea."....
  11. Be wary, some eggs are of the devil.
  12. He just was what he was, and that's all that he was, Popeye the sailor man. Popeye was iron deficient without his spinach. Canned spinach got many a snow shoveler through the harsh winters of old the days when food was grown locally not delivered fresh daily from all over the world. Imagine I can probably still put in an order for live Maine lobster and have them here in by three pm. No such opportunity existed for the old sailor man.
  13. I like to think of it as humor, humor with a point that can be developed by the reader, one not needing me to beat it in to anyone. Obviously the Bible Jesus learned, lived, and quoted from as He spoke was not the King James was it? It was more than the Torah the first five books of the Old Testament or Pentateuch originally just one book, all written by Moses. For Jesus quoted the prophets, and knew his lineage accounts, He quoted Psalms too. When Paul wrote letters to the churches of Jesus He did not write in King Jesus English either. Nor is the record of the four witnesses coming in King James era English language. Many of today's transliterations are the work of Wycliff Bible translators. They are pretty well educated missionaries specializing in language, going into much of the world, learning details of regional languages and transliterating much of the gospel in writings used locally for the people of the region so that they may read the saving word of Grace for themselves then raise up local churches and spread the word the gospel of Jesus. To think that God the Holy Spirit only abounds in King James English is,... well sorry but it is just a bit preposterous, a silliness. God the Holy Spirit intercedes for me in groanings not understood by me; and I can read King James. So does the Holy Spirit only speak Groaning? If there is to be a correct language to learn for eternity forward I suspect it is not even Greek, that it is instead Hebrew. And not King James Hebrew ( Yes that is humor, or if you wish it is sarcasm hoping to become wit).
  14. Very kind of you, thanks. The tribute given by both of us is to God and to God alone, for each of us have had our hard times, times of hard journeying, yet God has taken two very ordinary people, used the labor in His name of another to give us opportunity to meet love and marry. For as you know we met through the Christian message Board of Zola Levitt Ministries some time ago. We are often surprised to find how close to being parallel our life tracks have had us, yet never meeting. That close parallel gives us much in common though we never were together nor really knew of each other until God moved us to seeking each other out. Even then He delayed it some, perhaps so that we would more fully appreciate His kindness to each of us. Our relationship is very much like a very old era pen pal or arranged marriage. When we met without ever having known any physical attributes of each other, each of us had already decided we were to marry. Our being one is of God's work alone, His grace and His mercy extended to us even in this temporal setting. So who really encourages? IN THE GREATEST SENSE GOD. God encourages.
  15. What had been written? What is the Bible Jesus read from, studied and quoted when He spoke?
