    Ah, OK...just that the mother is usually the hen...not the father. No mention of "father" in the KJ version...at least not in Luke 13:34.

    Now that that's out of the way, how are you doing with it all? Six months isn't that long ago as far as getting over a marriage is concerned...at least not for me.

    "Father hen"?...hmmm...don't quite know what to make of that.

    But seriously...have no idea why I stopped by. There was a reason...just can't remember it for the life of me. Nice to see a few familiar faces, though. It does seem though like the more involved I get with things outside of the house, the less time I spend on the net. I think there'll always be a net with online forums, somewhere, somehow...but it'll decline for awhile, generally speaking, as the novelty of it has largely worn off.

    I am sorry to hear about your marriage, Scotty...that, in my mind, is always a tragedy. But as has been pointed out, it's not the end of life. The possibility of love hangs in everyone's future...just don't expect it to ever feel the same way twice. (No cheap shots on that last line please, Bob.)

    Same old same old here. Daughter is almost four, and we've decided to try for another one. It took four months for the first one...wondering how long it will take this time around. Half of me is happy...the other half can't beleive we're doing this to ourselves at our age.

    All study and no play make Saya a dull girl. ;\)

    I am very much afraid that you decide whether something 'rings true' by the test that it must fail to disagree with any of your prior views.


    Do you always have fear of what you are hoping for? I'd see a psychatrist if I were you. ;\)

    We are all memebers of the body of Christ...but to assume we are all to play the same part as one another is to be ignorant of Paul's words concering this, at best. Don't expect everybody to play the same role as you...as if it's the only valuable role God has for us. To believe so is, as I've said, to be ignorant of the Bible's words on this...and perhaps, in some cases, even arrogant as to ones own role at that of being the most important one.

    Some views on the ground-zero mosque that ring true:

    ...and for Inegligible:

    Note that, as an ex-Muslim terrorist, he would know much more about what Islam is all about than you or I...though, interestingly, he agrees with my point of view. The only remaining question is: How determined are you to keep your head buried in the sand?

    thor, I know some small churches teach that - but Paul had a different view. He cared very much what other people thought. He told the Corinthians, "So if the whole church comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and some who do not understand or some unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are out of your mind?" (1Cor 14:23).


    Sounds strange to me since I use the KJV, but a believe (if it's the passage I'm thinking of) that Paul was making a point that there needs to be an interpretation whenever tongues were spoken in church...not that we should care if others think we're mad. Do you choose to please man or God?

     Quote:
    Paul also said, "Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law), so as to win those not having the law. To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some." (1Cor 9:19-22).

    Doesn't that suggest a different attitude?


    No. It suggests to me that Pual was willing to meet people where they are at...to go to them wherever they are at. But this does not mean compromising your Biblicaly principles in order to do so. One does not become a pimp just to be able to minister to hookers.

    damien...long story short, if you're going to be a Christian, you can't be so concerned about what other people think. I sympathize with how you feel, but you're going to have to deal with your own issues and stop foisting them on others. You need to make a choice about where you stand on an issue and voice it...based on what you believe, and not on what you think others will think.

    Yep...already knew this. The real reasong could possibly prove to be very interesting, but likely we'll never know the truth of the matter...especially when "the truth" for most folks is fed to them by the liberal media. (Folks then spit it back up all over the web, you know.) I wish the reality to be known, but I won't be holding my breath.
