Understanding a Veteran

To understand a Veteran you must know
We left home as a teenager or in our early 20's for a unknown adventure.
We loved our country to defend it and protect it with our own lives.
We said good bye to family, then to friends and everything we knew.
We learned the basics and were scattered to the winds, to the far corners of the world.
We found a new families and new friends
We became brothers and sisters regardless of color, race or creed
We had plenty of good times and plenty of bad times
We didn't get enough sleep
We smoked and drank too much
We learned both good and bad habits
We worked hard and played harder
We didn't earn a great wage
We experienced the happiness of mail call and the sadness of missing important events
We didn't know when, or even if, we were ever see home again
We grew up fast, yet somehow, we never grew up at all
We fought for our freedom, as well as the freedom for others.
Some of us saw actual combat, and some of us didn't.
Some of us saw the world, and some of us didn't
Some of us dealt with physical warfare, most of us dealt with psychological warfare
We have seen and experienced and dealt with things we cannot fully describe or explain as not all our sacrifices were physical.
We participated in time honored ceremonies and rituals with each other strengthening our bonds and camaraderie
We counted on each other to get the job done and sometimes just to survive it at all
We have dealt with victories and tragedy
We have celebrated and mourned
We lost a few along the way
When our adventure was over, some of us went back home, some of us started somewhere new, and some of us never came home
We have told amazing and hilarious stories of our exploits and adventures
We share an unspoken bond with each other that most people don't experience and few will understand
We speak highly of our own branch and poke fun of the other branches
We know however, that, if needed we will be there for our brothers and sisters and stand together as one, in a heartbeat
Being a Veteran is something that had to be earned, it can never be taken away
It has no monetary value, but at the same time, it is a priceless gift
People see a Veteran and they say thank them for their service
When we see each other, we give that lil upward head nod, or a slight smile, knowing that we have shared and experienced things that most people have not
So from myself to the rest of the Veterans out there, I commend you and thank you for all you have done and sacrificed for your country
Try to remember the good times and make peace with the bad times
Share your stories
But most importantly, stand tall and proud, for you have earned the right to be called a Veteran!!

Iron Dome Intercepts One of Two Missiles Fired Towards Israel from Gaza
Militants from Gaza fired a pair of rockets at Israel on Monday, one of which would be intercepted by Iron Dome, while the other landed inside of the Strip; This was the first rocket fire to occur since the 11-day volley in May.

Sirens sounded in southern Israel on Monday after militants affiliated with Hamas fired two rockets towards the Jewish State, which would result in zero injuries and/or casualties. Monday’s rocket attack is reportedly the first of its kind since May when the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) squared off with Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) for 11 days.

According to reports, one of the two rockets was intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system, while the other landed inside of the Strip, endangering the Arab population. The story was similar back in May, though in that instance, it was hundreds of rockets as opposed to one, injuring and killing many civilians.

As far as I'm concerned it is not a debatable subject. People try to use the fact that the word abortion is not in the Bible yet they ignore that the very concept of it is there. They try to claim that the child in the womb is nothing more than a mass of cells yet scriptures shows us time and again that they are indeed a "child in the womb" and that there is indeed a soul in that child from conception. It is plain and simple the murder of a another living human.

Psalm 51
Psalm 127:3
Psalm 139
Proverbs 6:16-17
Luke 1
Jeremiah 1:4-5
Isaiah 1
Exodus 21:22
Genesis 9:6
Deuteronomy 5:17



Amen brother Amen

I'll disagree with her and will debate her on this subject, all day long. Yes, something I will debate is murdering a child of the Lord's!!  Abortion is Murder, plain and simple. I'll agree with her archbishop for a change and not add to his comments.
***********(Her statement is below)************

As a devout Catholic and mother of five in six years, I feel that God blessed my husband and me with our beautiful family–five children in six years, almost to the day,” Pelosi said. “But it's not up to me to dictate that that's what other people should do. And it's an issue of fairness and justice for poor women in our country.” says Pelosi

This is 50 times (I could have posted another 25 but ran out of room) these doomsayers have been wrong, when will they learn??
10  Theology / Prophecy - Current Events / Al Gore and the rest of the doomsayers on: July 11, 2021, 12:40:39 AM
Modern doomsayers have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. They continue to do so today. None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true. What follows is a collection of notably wild predictions from notable people in government and science.

More than merely spotlighting the failed predictions, this collection shows that the makers of failed apocalyptic predictions often are individuals holding respected positions in government and science. While such predictions have been and continue to be enthusiastically reported by a media eager for sensational headlines, the failures are typically not revisited.

For more than 50 years Climate Alarmists in the scientific community and environmental movement have not gotten even one prediction correct, but they do have a perfect record of getting 41 predictions wrong. In other words, on at least 41 occasions, these so-called experts have predicted some terrible environmental catastrophe was imminent … and it never happened. And not once — not even once! — have these alarmists had one of their predictions come true.

Think about that… the so-called experts are 0-41 with their predictions, but those of us who are skeptical of “expert” prediction number 42, the one that says that if we don’t immediately convert to socialism and allow Alexandria Ocasio-Crazy to control and organize our lives, the planet will become uninhabitable. Why would any sane person listen to someone with a 0-41 record? Why would we completely restructure our economy and sacrifice our personal freedom for “experts” who are 0-41, who have never once gotten it right? And if that’s not crazy enough, the latest ploy is to trot out a 16-year-old girl to spread prediction number 42, because it is so much more credible that way

11  Theology / Debate / Re: ARE YOU SURE YOU WILL BE RESURRECTED ? on: June 26, 2021, 12:52:36 PM
Some Corinthian Christians were baptized vicariously on behalf of some who’d already died, seeking a spiritual benefit. The problem with this view, though, is twofold. First, there is no precedent for baptism for the dead in the Bible, the early church, or pagan religions. No one knows who did it or what spiritual benefit they sought. Secondly the notion of Christians being baptizing for the sake of those who’ve died offends the Bible. It's like a magical sacramentalism. It is contradict justification by faith alone.

13  Theology / Debate / Re: SEE THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN CHRIST AND PAUL . on: March 06, 2021, 01:31:45 PM
NO!!!!!!

Christ is the son of God, Paul was the son of mortals, there is no comparison.

That's like comparing Ruth and Esther, Ruth was a Gentile while Esther was a Jewess. Ruth is a young Gentile woman who is brought to live among the Jews and marries a Jew.  Esther is a young Jewish woman who marries a Gentile king. While Ruth shows that God is sovereignly working in the lives of ordinary people.  Esther shows that God is sovereignly working in the lives of the leaders of our world.

You can compare all you want but, your treading on dangerous grounds.

Perhaps those Christians who have been rejected by their family and former friends can identify with Jesus when He said: “For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother” (Mark 3:35). We still have a family—an eternal one! HMM

Yes I can identify with the authors statement on family turning against me when I came to Jesus. Thankfully my uncle helped me deal with the situation because he has gone through the same thing year's ago. I'd rather be resting in the hands of the Lord then deal with family hating my ways about talking about Jesus. Least my wife and 2 children are faithful to the Lord.

Don't get me wrong, I pray for my family that the Lord will soften their hearts.
