  1. Yes, I'm familiar with the Prodigal son story. The Prodigal story isn't about the prodigal. But quite frankly I'm not about being called bro, and I'm not about word games. Speak plain or please move on . Thank you brother.
  2. Yes, I saw that. The older brother of the prodigal son was not happy with his return to their fathers land. Nor that his father had welcomed the younger brother, prodigal, with open arms and a celebration. That's why I was wondering how that story applies to what we're discussing here.
  3. I do. How would you say that applies to the particulars of this thread discussion brother? Thank you. I am aware. Thank you sister.
  4. What does God's word tell us? "Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. " Mark 16:16 What indeed. Romans 2:1-29Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things. We know that the judgment of God rightly falls on those who practice such things. Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God? Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed.

  6. You're welcome. The answer to your question has been posted many times about this board. Particularly in those threads wherein board rules prohibit personal insult to any one members Christian identity, but are permitted to be published here so as to personally attack an entire community of those identifying as Christian. Particularly Orthodox Christian. The link that answers your query of me, what was the first church after Christ, is there. God's blessings, J.
  7. It's brother among the church if you would be so kind.
  8. Rare parchment manuscript of US Declaration of Independence found in England Two Harvard researchers have found only the second known parchment manuscript of America’s formative text in a West Sussex archive April 22, 2017 Fascinating. Especially the signatures in this copy being not as uniform as that of the Declaration of Independence so familiar to Americans.
  9. Yes. Two Senators per State.
  10. I fear for the American's being held captive in north Korea. Would Jung-un go so far as to kill them so as to back off President Trump?

  11. You're welcome brother of the King of Heaven.
  12. Amen! As would I. That's the only way to curtail this nonsense. Fight rather than concede.
  13. I knew a woman who worked for a company for over 20 years. A coworker she'd known for near as long reported her to HR because she complimented the nose job the woman had received during her vacation. The profile unmistakably altered and making the woman look like a whole other person. The simple compliment this woman gave caused her to be called to Human Resources after she'd received an alert on her screen to report. There were no questions asked. No clarification of intent, meaning yes, it was a simple compliment. And if the lady in question didn't appreciate compliments to the nose she herself didn't like enough to keep surgically unaltered, why is anyone being punished for a remark typically intended to boost self esteem? Instead, the woman was given an ultimatum. Resign of her own accord, clean out her desk, and the sexual harassment allegation wouldn't appear on her record so as to appear in background check as she sought other employment. Or, refuse and be fired and have it appear. Along with the fact she was fired for same sex sexual harassment. Guess which option she chose?
  14. I think all things considered China knows if they had to take a side siding with Jung-un would be a mistake for a great many reasons. Maybe Jung-un is starting to believe the claim that he's divine. Now he see's himself as able to take on the worlds super powers and win. I think that would be a huge mistake in the game of axis and allies.
