  1. "Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel" (which means, God with us). Matt 1:23 RSV

  3. If there are no churches in your area, perhaps you should start one. Many denominations might enjoy helping you do that.
  4. I was curious about your Bible verse, but I can't find an Isaiah 59:50 in my Bible.
  5. I have to ask you about your comment that you couldn't find a church. There are no perfect churches. If a person'a faith is strong, I would suggest they find a church they like and set an example for others. Or were you saying there are no churches in your area?
  6. The Apostle Paul told us to pray constantly (1 Thessalonians 5:17). Sounds like you were on the right path and then got on the wrong path. Time to get back on the right path. I would suggest you read the Bible - all of it. It is very helpful.
  7. Many people love the KJV Bible.
  8. Yes, but Melchis, you might want a more modern version of the Bible. The KJV was published in 1611, and some of the language is outdated.
  9. I think some people think the Lord, in effect, waves a magic wand, and suddenly we are all happy. I think the reality is that the Lord teaches us how to live a life that makes us happy.
  10. It would seem to me some do everything they can to make Donald look bad, but I suspect he is a great person. We've all sinned, Donald included, but I believe Donald is one of those people who has learned from his sin.
  11. That isn't how it works. When we repent of our sin, the Lord forgives us.
  12. It's been fairly mild here in Reno this summer, though I would expect some hot weather before the month is out. Even so, I stay inside with my portable swamp cooler turned on. I try to get my work done as early in the day as possible.
  13. I had a nicotine addiction as a young man for about twelve years. I spent the last two trying to cut down, switching from non-filter to filter, and trying to quit. I finally decided one day, "This is the last day I smoke." I quit the next day for several months, had a weekend relapse, and haven't smoked since. That was 1986. I suggest you simply quit. Expect a six-week struggle. And then you'll never want another cigarette. Maybe the most difficult time was breaktime at work, when I craved a cigarette. Also, I had the fear that if I didn't smoke, there'd be nothing to do. Turned out that wasn't true.
