  1. Explain to me how you, yourself, personally, "keep" the Sabbath.
  2. Sudden Link coupons. You get them in the mail on a daily basis. Without even asking for them. The Internet forum equivalent of Whack-A-Mole.
  3. Pfffft . . . I am a Royal Member. Let's give it up for anyone who has a ______ prefix in front of their name . . .
  4. This scripture says it all: Romans 1:18-21 18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. God clearly says that all one has to do is look around at creation and one has to realize that this was not an accident. On a highly personal level. I grew up in the desert of Phoenix. Many find the desert hostile and frightening. I find it as comforting and familiar. I have traveled Arizona's deserts, although not as thoroughly and frequently as I would have liked and found them to be both harsh and respectful, depending on one's understanding of the environment going in. High country can kill you just as quickly as desert can, or a flooding river. I spent 39 years of my 57 years of existence in the Hualapai mountains of Northwestern Arizona. My Grandfather traversed these mountains as a hard-rock miner looking for gold and silver from 1952 until his death in 1980. My father traversed these mountains as a deer hunter from the early 60's until the late 1990's until my mother's MS would no longer allow him to go up there. I traversed these mountains as a fervent hiker who wished to explore the high parts of the range that my father and grandfather never explored. I accompanied my Father and Grandfather on many treks as an unwilling companion until the 80's when I moved to Kingman and could explore areas neither my grandfather or father had never explored. The entire time I hiked these mountains, which are mainly unknown to those outside of Mohave County, and inconsequential to mountain climbers who have climbed mountains much higher and more prominent than these is that God made them just for me, and my Father and Grandfather that frequented them way before I was born . . .
  5. A clear accusation was made. That someone attacked someone else. That accusation was false. It needs to be dealt with. A couple of people have tried to spin the original statement into something that it is not. No specific person was addressed in this statement nor were they attacked. But because a certain political agenda is not being agreed with, this person is being singled out and attacked because she is not agreeing with them. There is a simple term for this kind of behavior. It is called "bullying."
  6. This is not the kind of forum you can come into and just start stomping on people with no repercussions. I agree with your assertions about Islam, but LadyKay does not. That is her right. You do not have the right to repeat the same baseless accusation a few times and then distance yourself from it by saying "let's get back on topic" when someone else points out your accusations were false. I am not always a fan of Lady Kay's posts, but I take the side of anyone I see being treated poorly. You have to deal with your accusation. You don't get the option of backing away. I am not trying to pick a fight. I am holding you to the standard of behavior that you yourself set earlier in the thread. Are you going to display an actual example of that behavior?
  7. And I would suggest that you not make accusations and then drop them like they are hot when they are proven to be false. Lady Kay made no ad hominem attacks on anyone in this thread. And since you invoked the "behaving with Christian comport" clause I would point out that the wise thing to do, before trying to do an end-run around the accusation, which is still hanging out there, would be to conduct yourself with Christian grace and apologize. "The allusion in the accusation concerning the post by the poster is the same. It does not skirt the violation issue." The above statement does not make much sense in it's present form. What I meant by "skirt" was not the TOS. I meant your own statement that we should behave a certain way on a Christian board. A rule of your own that you are stepping all over by continuing to say there was some kind of attack when there was not. Christian Whack-A-Mole is not a fun game.
  8. Ouch. I don't agree with her opinion, but reading back over her posts I see absolutely nothing that I would characterize as an ad hominen attack on anyone. What am I missing? Kinda skirting your own line there . . .
  9. Dearborn, Michigan is now a well-known Muslim enclave. This isn't opinion, this isn't a theory, it's fact. As such, in Dearborn, there is no "religious freedom." Islam basically rules there and has for a few years now. There is no religious freedom under Islam. And honestly the "If you don't like it here, move somewhere else" doesn't do anything to solve the problem. It just means if you think there is a problem, you should just run away from it and let the problem fester and grow.
  10. I keep seeing you hinting that the early church kept the Sabbath and that we need to keep it as well. If this is true, then please explain to me how you, yourself, personally, "keep" the Sabbath. Also explain to me exactly where the church is instructed to keep the Sabbath in the New Testament.
  11. You cannot tie salvation to thring to keep the Sabbath. If you do that, in any measure, you turn your salvation into a do-it-yourself project built on works, and works get you nothing. It is physically impossible to keep the Sabbath and has been since 70 AD. Even trying it places you completely under the Old Law.
  12. It does not equate to be a "sexist" attitude simply because you do not agree with it. You accuse him of playing games and you are doing the exact same thing. You are engaged in a game of semantics and burying your wheels deeper in the sand.
  13. False dichotomy. Up until His death on the cross, as a Jew, Jesus was under the law. Therefore, He had to observe the Sabbath. The Temple was still extant and the sacrificial system was still in place, therefore, the Sabbath could still be "kept" according to biblical dictates. After the Temple was destroyed in 70 AD, it was no longer a possibility to "keep" the Sabbath according to the exact standards that the Old Testament calls for. There is no proof that the Apostles and the 1st century church attempted to keep the Sabbath. There is no New Testament directives from Jesus or the Apostles to try and keep the Sabbath. Scripturally, after the Temple was destroyed it became impossible to keep the Sabbath according to the original parameters: Numbers 28:9-10 9 " 'On the Sabbath day, make an offering of two lambs a year old without defect, together with its drink offering and a grain offering of two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil. 10 This is the burnt offering for every Sabbath, in addition to the regular burnt offering and its drink offering. The sacrifice is not an optional component and the Sabbath cannot be kept without it.
  14. You cannot keep the Sabbath without a Temple in Jerusalem and the sacrificial system in place.
  15. The New Staff hands out warning points for Trump nay-sayers like coupons for SuddenLink.
