  1. And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him.” Acts 5:32 the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him. And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. (Romans 11:6) It is all about Grace, Grace Plus works does not compute in this equation. For they (Israel) being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. (Romans 10:3-4) Re: Acts 5:32, the Obedience Spoken of here is to receive Jesus from the context of this passage. Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him. (Acts 5:29-32) He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1;11-13) What we are witnessing is a religious spirit at work, some are being deceived (victims) by this spirit others are possessed. read more at the following link. https://www.christian-faith.com/how-spirit-religion-fights-spirit-god/ Snippet from Link that apply here: Characteristics of the Work of Religious Spirits Fear of not being good enough When we think our salvation depends all on us we will be fearful, because the Bible says that we all stumble in many ways. Until we cast ourselves at the mercy of God and truly give ourselves to Him, we go through a cycle of hearing laws, falling short, feeling guilty, trying to measure up, and repeated failure. People under religious spirits are carrying heavy burdens and do not have the sense of freedom that comes when we know that our sins are washed away. The Kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and JOY in the Holy Spirit. If you are religious but you have no peace or joy, something is wrong. Condemnation and unrighteous judgment may have stolen it from you. Performance, not grace-based. The religious spirit seeks to have us serve the Lord in order to gain his approval, rather than from having received our approval from the cross of Christ. Doing works to atone for our sense of guilt, rather than trusting the blood of Jesus Some people are driven to do good works to make up for the wrong they have done. This kind of works will never bring us God's acceptance. It is another way of rejecting the sacrifice of Jesus when we say to God, "No, let me pay for it."
  2. Margot, What I think people are trying to say here to you is that your view is turning away from the grace of God. Hear me out please. I am not saying this with animosity. You were saved by grace, and you are Kept by grace. We sin, we all sin and if we say we have no sin we are a liar. (1 John 1:8-10) That is not the point here. Those who are Born again, Born of the Spirit, dwell in His righteousness instead of putting focus on our own righteousness. By Doing so, we rest in His finished work. What you are doing is saying that the born again are kept by their own works and obedience, what we are trying to get you to understand is that our obedience is a by-product of our faith in the sufficiency of his grace to save us. It is like a hot air balloon, Your focus is keeping the balloon from taking off, because you are unwilling to release the weight of sand in the Bags. Your dwelling on works to keep you saved is preventing from grace taking hold of your life and changing you, because you are afraid to let go, because you like being grounded. You like being in control of your destiny, But this is the very essence of Grace, and that is to let go, and let God. This is what being born again entails. So You are in the basket below the balloon filled with grace, But you are failing to let Grace do its work in you of making you soar, because it is weighted down with your trust in your righteousness to keep you in that basket, yet grounded. In other words by sitting in the basket you think you are on a balloon ride despite having never lifted off the ground. The More Sand you let go of, the More His grace Lifts you, and the More His grace lifts you, the more aware of his grace and our unrighteousness you become, and the more you begin to trust in his Grace to save you and keep you air born. But if you remain grounded this will never take place. As You are flying your trust in His Grace grows, and you begin to soar higher to the point that you are totally dependent on His Grace to keep you. I read through many of your comments here, and the one factor I see in common is this trust misplaced in yourself and your deeds instead of in Grace. for example above, you write we are doing, or we are obeying, or we are enduring, as if we have the power to endure and fly. No, We cannot endure or fly of our own accord we need Grace. We are saved By Grace, and we are Kept by Grace, and if we allow it Grace will enable us to soar into the heavens or we will remain forever grounded trusting in our own strength and will. Endurance is Allowing His grace to lead you and rule you in your life and not trusting in your own will and strength to do so. Where you stand right now, is in the basket of the balloon proclaiming you are saved by grace, But you are grounded, Afraid to let grace do its work in you, afraid of losing control. But By the same token you are not experiencing what it means to fly. Paul asks these questions of the Galatians who were in the same basket you are.... Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? (Gal. 3:1-4) This comes After writing the Most poignant of statement in the previous verse. I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. (Gal. 2:21) Where I see you sitting is in the basket of the balloon, (No I am not calling you a basket case, LOL) Like the Galatian church, Having received the Spirit by grace, But trying to make yourself perfect apart from grace, thus frustrating the grace of God. In Romans 11, Paul is speaking of the remnant of Israel saved by grace, He makes this "aside" which is very telling of the difference we are addressing here. And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. (Romans 11:6) We are saved by grace, we are kept by grace, and we are sanctified by grace, The More you allow grace to work in your life the higher you will soar, and because this soaring is by the Power of His Grace, you will never fall into self righteousness because this is not your work, but the Work of His Grace in you. God Bless.
  3. Actually, Linguistically the terms "evening and Morning" are used in conjunction with the Word "yowm" for Days, or time periods, which means this passage is pointing to literal 24 hour days consisting of one evening and morning (singular). Presuming your theory is right, does that mean that mankind will fall again as they did in the genesis account? I Mean in a sense I agree with your theory but I only take it so far as to say the seventh millennium is the Rest of God, when he reigns on earth.
  4. I Just randomly opened up the Bible to this chapter... it applies here. Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. (1 Cor. 15:12-14)
  5. Amen Blood Bought. Why is this not taught in the churches is a good question? I Do not know if I have the answer. Is this a lost doctrine? Is it willfully ignored? I Personally think it may be because this is the Way God designed this. That we should arrive at His rest, until then we will swing back and forth from one side to the other... (Eph 4:14 comes to mind and every wind of doctrine) I Just do not know for sure.
  6. Ivan, "Seek His face" Is a saying in Hebrew that means to seek His presence in your life. This is the "effort" you need to put in. There are going to be times your faith will be tested, and you will be in a valley, And You will think He is not there, That is when you need to seek his face. You can find Him In the Word of God, in the prayer closet, In Hymns and songs of praise and worship, And of course in your churches as you are hearing Bible based teaching and preaching. Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore. Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth; (Psalm 105:4-5) As far as Christian music is concerned, everyone has their own personal favorites. I personally like the Old Hymns I sang in church as child growing up, But there were times when the modern music Spoke to me and His presence was in those songs as well. As someone who loved literature, I find some of those Old hymns to have some profound truths expressed in them that some of these modern praise and worship songs are lacking, But by the same token I have always been a "lyrics" listener, rather than a musically talented, so that is what I lean towards. Some of the more modern music is not as deep lyrically as the Older Hymns IMO. God Bless.
  7. prodigal son, There may be 47000 denominations, but only one true Body of Christ, and that is all those who have a relationship with Jesus, Nothing more. No Buildings, no denominations, no Pope or Bishop or Pastor, Just Christ Jesus as the head. He is our all in all. Catholocism is just another denomination, and itself has many denominations therein. If this insults you, I am sorry, this is what I believe, and what the Holy Ghost has taught me to believe through the Word of God. I Do not hate Catholics in the least, and like I said earlier, there are many Brothers and Sisters in Christ in the Catholic church, But just like those many protestant denominations there are many "Christians in name only" in all of them. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (1 Timothy 2:5) And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. (Col. 1:18) Jesus is the LORD (1 Cor. 12:3)
  8. Prodigal Son, Some people here are offended by the catholic church and its teachings especially ones like this pointing to repeated prayers and rosaries and what not. Many have come out of the catholic church and its teachings such as this others see the church as being Apostate, Replacing Christ as the one mediator between God and Man by placing the Pope as the Vicar of Christ. I Personally believe there are many brothers and sisters in Christ in the Catholic church, But there are also many who are just following tradition and culture in being part of the church, as opposed to pursuing a genuine relationship with Christ Jesus. Unfortunately that relationship with Christ Jesus has come under attack by the Catholic church that says that you cannot pursue this relationship apart from church membership in the one catholic church, which is a load of "hogwash", Pardon my negative pun. Jesus is very clear that Anyone who seeks him shall find Him even in the absence of a building constructed by men or a denomination of a church of men. In Christ alone!
  9. A. Salvation refers either to the process through which a person is brought from a condition of distress to a condition of or to the state of ultimate well being. B. Prior to salvation, the unbeliever is on a futile mission to obtain a relationship with God, and his condition is marked by fundamental problems that prevent him from attaining his goal. C. While there are a number of ways people may go about this, the most common method is the concept of manufacturing a relationship with God via human works. D. However, the Bible is quite clear on the fact that man’s fallen state and God’s absolute righteousness makes this an impossibility. 1. Man’s state is not simply one of some inability; it is one of absolute inability by virtue of the fact that each person is born into a state of spiritual death, residing under the wrath of God. Eph.2:1,3 2. In order to share God’s life one must attain His standard of righteousness (+R) that is an absolute impossibility due to the indwelling sin nature. Rom.5:18a; Job 35:2 cp.Rom.5:18b; 2Cor.5:21 3. Any kind of works, even those based on the perfect revelation of God’s standards in the Mosaic Law, are insufficient to produce or provide salvation. Rom. 3:10,12,28,23; Gal.2:16; 3:10,21 E. The endless and fruitless attempts to acquire salvation via human effort are precisely the reason God provides Ph1 rest apart from works. Joh.1:12-13 F. When one recognizes that faith in Christ is the only issue in salvation, he leaves off working to provide his own salvation and rests in the finished work of Christ. Mat.11:28-30 1. Jesus Christ promised His rest to all who would come to Him for salvation. 2. The promise is directed toward those that have been futilely pursuing salvation through their works and have been oppressed by the legalistic approach of their religious guides. 3. The principle of taking His yoke upon yourself is His invitation to serve with Him in the plan of God Ph2; the concept of learning from Him involves understanding (and then emulating) the humility that causes Him to submit to the yoke of God. 4. He states that He is not like their religious leaders (humility was not a virtue among the ancients, but was ranked with slavery) and they will find Him meek/gently/unassuming and lowly/humble in heart. 5. In contrast to the legalistic burden of salvation by works, His service is characterized by that which is kindly/pleasant/easy and His burden light/limited/easy to bear. V. The believer and Ph2 rest. A. The book of Hebrews that emphasizes the concept of Ph2 rest provides much of our insight to this area of rest. B. Hebrews makes it quite clear that there is a Ph2 rest that God provides and one that He desires His people to enjoy. Heb.4:1 C. Ph2 rest is characterized as requiring the following if a believer is going to enjoy God’s rest. 1. Salvation is the beginning, and is our introduction to this rest. Heb.4:2-3a 2. One must continue to manifest positive volition toward the Word of God; unbelief is the enemy that will keep you from God’s rest. Heb. 3:19; 4:11-13 3. The believer must not only maintain fidelity to God’s word, He must be willing to consistently apply doctrine to his testing. Heb.4:6 4. In due time, God will bless each believer with a permanent, settled niche and whatever blessings that come to him in that niche. 2Sam.7:1 5. David is a good example of this state that is to be contrasted with the years of conflict and persecution under Saul. 6. To continue to exploit God’s rest demands an ongoing allegiance to the Word of God to the end of one’s Ph2. Heb.3:14 D. The blessings of Ph2 rest come after an undetermined period of testing that eventually leads one to a mature and ultimate permanent niche of service and blessing. Cp.Jam.1:2-4,12 1. The conquest generation is a good example of entering God’s rest after lengthy testing. 2. David exemplifies the truth of this as he is tested severely under Saul and finally settles in the palace in Jerusalem. E. There will be continued testing after one is settled in his permanent niche, but there are temporal blessings for passing the humility test. Pro.15:33 1. The temporal blessings will vary in degree and type among believers and are not simply to be measured in net worth. 2. In fact, those very Ph2 blessings can be tested in order to demonstrate whether or not the believer has sufficient grace orientation and mastery of the details of life. Gen.22 Abraham and Isaac F. Therefore, the following exhortations are appropriate with respect to rest and one’s continued enjoyment of that rest. 1. Do not harden your heart when you hear the truth. Heb.3:12-13 2. Monitor yourself at all times and watch for any signs that you may be falling into the evil, unbelieving heart syndrome. 3. Encourage other believers to stick with the straight and narrow, exhibiting your priorities by example in both word and deed. 4. One should have sanctified fear of failing to enter God’s rest and make whatever adjustments and sacrifices are necessary to enter that rest. Heb.4:1,11 G. Those that have entered God’s rest manifest the following characteristics. 1. They unite what they hear in Bible class with faith. Heb.4:2 2. They are obedient under testing. Heb.3:18 3. They hold fast to the doctrine and continue the course that God is laying before them. Heb.3:14; 12:1 4. They do not resort to fleshly tactics to advance themselves or procure blessings; they avoid operation energy of the flesh and wait for God to bless them. Heb.4:10 H. Believers are said to find temporary rest from surrounding –V in their Ph2 when they are in compliance with God’s geographical will and in the company of other +V. Rom.15:31-32 SOURCE: http://www.lakeeriebiblechurch.org/Doctrine/pdf/REST.pdf The entire PDF should be read, for those who wish to understand and explain this better. The "PH1" stuff is referring to the different phases for rest being used and they get into that in opening sections which I skipped.
  10. Margo, So Long as you have Christ in you and are trusting in his finished work of grace in you, then you are a born again Christian. The Problem is most people who go to church and believe they are Born again Christians are stuck in a rut of Partial unbelief in this finished work of the cross, so they try and add to this their own works in order to maintain salvation. The Doctrine of rest is the key piece they are missing, and Is at the very heart of the blindness the Jewish nation has of Christ Jesus being their messiah. Instead of Opposing this, listen to the full scope of this, which will take your faith from partial belief to fulness. The scripture is found in Hebrews chapters 3-5 primarily, and uses the example of Israel entering the promised land as the example. They had just witness the hand of God Sparing them from the angel of death in Egypt, the parting of the red sea, the Manna from heaven to sustain them, But when it came time enter the promised rest of God (literally resting place), they failed because of unbelief. They did not fully trust God and His providence, instead they looked to there weakness and the enemies strength. (there were giants in the land to overcome). Well, those Giants in the land now for Christians are the World, and the cares of this world, and we see ourselves as weak because we fail trust In His finished work in us. Unlike the Apostolic church which turned the World upside down, because they fully trusted in his grace and providence with full assurance of faith, We fall short and doubt in His finished work and do not rest on His providence. Adding to this fire is the contflict between the fourth commandment and the Doctrine of rest. The Old covenant is a shadow of the New, whereas the old pointed to a day of rest, The new point to a person who is our Rest, His finished work on the cross. So one covenant is pushing a carnal obedience to the letter of the Lw, while the other is pointing to the Lord of the Sabbath and resting in His work, thus the law has its fulfillment in the cross. The fourth commandment did not dissolve or pass away as some say, but transformed as we are transformed into the New. Without this doctrine of rest, you, and any who are pointing to works are living in partial belief, and What the Lord does with those who live in partial belief is sends them into the Wilderness. In Israel's case for 40 years, they wandered, till that generation that did not believe in fulness fell in the wilderness. Only the two witnesses who did believe in fulness made it into the promised land. Christians who are continually pointing to the law, and to sin and to our weakness are the ones living in partial unbelief. The ones who are pointing to the cross, and Christ Jesus and the fulness of His grace see their own weakness and point to His greatness, and through Him we overcome. This is the very point of that last letter to the churches as found in revelation, which is this final church age we are living in. We have substituted God's providence with our own self righteous will, and think we are Good with God, when we are Poor blind and naked Spiritually. The fruit of this is found in Forums such as this where we see Christians pointing us to the Law instead of the Cross. It has gotten so far as to even some saying we are saved by the Torah (I am not kidding here as a prominent messianic Hebrew roots teacher had this on their websites statement of faith) They say things like Jesus is the Torah, or they question Eternal security, saying security is conditional, which is like saying Jesus Blood is no different than the blood of bulls and goats and only can atone for our sins for a season. (Think about that for a minute, Or Selah as the Psalmists writes). Now I am not familiar with where you stand on all of this, but I have taken the time to answer your question. Whethter or not you are born again is between yourself and the God. If this has convicted you go to Him on your knees in repentance, and he will teach you and show you the Truth about resting in Him. Look up also the lyrics to the Hymn "my faith has found a resting place" By Eliza Hewitt, and you will see this doctrine in simplicity there. My faith has found a resting place, Not in device or creed; I trust the ever-living One, His wounds for me shall plead. Refrain: I need no other argument, I need no other plea, It is enough that Jesus died, And that He died for me. Enough for me that Jesus saves, This ends my fear and doubt; A sinful soul I came to Him, He’ll never cast me out. My heart is leaning on the Word, The living Word of God, Salvation by my Savior’s name, Salvation through His blood. My great physician heals the sick, The lost He came to save; For me His precious blood He shed, For me His life He gave. I Am going to post something on the Doctrine of rest that explains it better than this in a separate comment after this. I am not familiar with who the whole link is by so I am not endorsing their church, per se, but the massage I will copy and paste will be accurate.
  11. Ivan, Praise God for your decision to follow Christ Jesus. You wrote above: " Jesus is God in the flesh sent to die for all of our sins and to save us." Right now as a young believer you acknowledge this with your mind but it has not sunk in yet as to the true meaning of this. When you do, you will find that assurance you are looking for. He Died for all your sins, past present and future, ALL of them. When You fully understand this you will stop beating yourself up with doubts, and instead begin to trust in his working in you and through you. You see when you are Born again the burden of sin is lifted off of you, which is that peace you felt, and cleanness. This is known as "instant sanctification" From that moment on when God looks down on you he sees not your sin, but he sees the righteousness of His Son in you. But we still have this body of ours, which is mortal, the "old man", and that Old man is being made new by the Work of the Holy Ghost in you. So for example, your desire for horror movies has changed, your behavior and demeanor has changed (I can tell just by your comments here), This is a lifelong process known as "progressive sanctification", Which is the Work of the Holy Ghost is doing in us. The trick is, as we are walking in faith, we tend to stray away from letting God fix us and heal us and try to do it ourselves, by our own power, and our own will in order to please him. This is known as religion. The Problem with this approach is that we fall into "self righteousness" then and using works to maintain salvation, instead of trusting in the finished work of Christ on the cross. What I recommend that you do, is not get yourself all worked up in religion, and instead go look for relationship. You have the Word of God, which is the sword of the Spirit, and when you begin to read and let the Holy Ghost in you teach you, you will learn how to have a relationship with God as opposed to a religion towards God. Pray to Him to guide you and teach as you read. Ask Yourself, "what does this passage teach me about Jesus and my relationship with him?" Trust in His grace, and His ability to Mold you as a potter molds clay. Rest in His finished work on the cross, and he will begin to change that Old man into a new creation in Christ Jesus. He will make himself more known to you, and your relationship with him will thrive. When you start trying to fix it yourself by your own strength, you may have some success, but you will never overcome those sinful desires, they will always remain with you, because the heart has not been sanctified in you. When You let God fix you, he will give you victory over those desires and impulses of the Old man, when you are ready to give him the glory of overcoming. So, For example, I was a heavy drinker, an alcoholic, but when he fixed me I had no desire for the drink, neither was I ever tempted to go out and have a drink, and others around me can drink without me being tempted to join in, the victory over that sin was so complete, and I did not do anything, He did, he took the desire away from me, and I just stopped drinking alcohol. For me, the impetus for it was that if I wanted to minister for Him, He was to be the only Spirit in me. I Understood his Will then and yielded myself to His will. The change came not by me but by Him and his grace at work in me, and I cannot take credit for the work because I did nothing I did not even try to stop drinking, He just removed that desire from my heart and the motive that made me drink. This is how we can avoid the snares of religion in our lives, focus on the relationship, Pray as if he is there next to you, HE IS, and let Him teach you always. Begin by reading the Gospel of John, and then Romans and acts. Understand his grace fully, and what that means, and how to trust in His grace alone, Not your own works, and you will be heading in the right direction. If you fall into works, return to the cross and refocus on His grace. Keep You eyes focused on Jesus and the sins and cares of this world will grow "strangely dim" as the old hymn puts it. God Bless.
  12. There are no reaction buttons here but this one deserves a "worthy". I was truly blessed reading this. Thanks.
  13. Every church needs prayer warriors. This is the best way to serve the church. If your church does not do so, ask to be allowed to come in early before the service and pray for the church, and see if others want to join you, if time permits. Just make it informal and free to anyone who is willing to participate. Do not have a plan, let the Holy Ghost lead you as you pray freely. Even if you are the only one willing, set the example, others will join you.
  14. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. (Rev. 3:9) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. (Rev. 2;9b) Those who have been around forums have experienced this spirit at work trying to rob you of your grace and your Liberty in Christ Jesus over an over again. Paul the Apostle dealt with same spirits as well in Galatians writing: And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: (2:4) He then continues on stating I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? (Gal 2:21-3:3) It is these sorts of Questions that will win the victory over these carnal temptations brought on by these spirits that come in unawares. We as Christians walk under the New covenant of Grace that was established by the death of the Testator, the Lamb of God. We Follow the way that leads to Life, and the Law of the spirit of Life, not the law of sin and death (romans 8:1-5) Most of these sorts have no concept of what differentiates the Law of the Spirit of life, from the law of sin and death, indeed they cannot because they are carnally minded, thinking in terms of carnal obedience and living their life under their own power so that they can claim their own righteousness. But we who are in Christ Jesus have the righteousness of Christ Jesus Imputed upon us by the Blood of the Lamb. It sorrows my heart every time I encounter one of these lost souls on the WWW or in person. For I know the torment they live under, the bondage. Paul writes in one of my all time favorite verses.... For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (2 Cor 5:21) Not only was he made to be "sin for us" thus substituting himself for our just due punishment (Hallelujah!), Which is what the Blood of the Lamb Did under the Old covenant, But that second part has no shadow under the Old covenant. We As Christians have no need to claim our own self righteousness, for we have the righteousness of Christ So Long as we "abide in the vine". (John 15) Some may say "well isn't abiding in the vine adding a work to salvation?" Not at all, All it means is that continue trusting in His grace and his righteousness rather than leaning on our own self righteousness to keep us saved. We Preach "done, Done, Done", while they preach "do, do, do". Nothing we can do can please God apart from faith. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Heb. 11:6) God Bless.
  15. I Grew up in the NYC metroplex, and that is Just how drivers say hello to one another, and they even have a special gesture instead of waving to their fellow automobile travelers. As Long as you are not getting out of the car and beating some Old lady over the head with a tire Iron, for driving 15 MPH below the speed limit, and this relieves the stress, Yell all you want. What I am saying is try bringing some Humor to the situation, and laughing instead of cursing and violence. We call the Old men and Ladies in Oldsmobiles and Cadilacs "Q-tips", because of their white hair, The Hotheads that cut you off "In a hurry to go to their funeral", Or "in a hurry to stop at the next red light", and the ones that obviously have never driven in the city "rookies". All to go along with the other jargon, such as "rubber neckers" and "Sunday drivers". Just remember, One day you will be a "Q-tip" as well, and the younger generation will have a few words for you as well, unless you rush to get to your funeral. If You need more humorous lingo, go look up trucker CB slang. Pretty soon your yelling will turn into a spot and identify the CB name of the driver. Here is a list for you. https://www.truckercountry.com/trucker-resources/cb-terminology/ By the way, that person that is tailgating too close behind you is a "bumper sticker".
