60616  Theology / General Theology / Re:Long Hair. 1Cor.11:1-16 on: October 30, 2004, 08:49:46 AM
1Cor.11:1-16? The long and short of it is you must look for the who what when where and why to have any true understanding of what you are reading.  This passage is not about HAIR.

You are correct. The mention of hair in the verses is not the the intent of the overall idea behind what he talking about here.

To fully understand what this is all about you must go back and read the previous chapters. This was about certain women in that group that had acted like the pagan priestesses and prophetesses, acting like men, and started praying and prophesying like a man. It is about the difference in the place of men and women in the church.

60617  Fellowship / You name it!! / Re:Butter vs Margarine on: October 29, 2004, 10:45:07 PM
Brother Love,

It seems that some rumors spread like wildfire, and this is one that caught a lot of peoples' interest. Be very careful what you pick up where, and check the source before repeating the tale. Rumors begin to take on a life of their own.  

If you go to http://www.margarine.org.uk/pg_app3.htm you can find the following explaination of a misunderstanding of terms:

Margarine is "plastic" at normal room temperature. The term "plastic" describes margarine’s ability to change shape when pressure is applied. For example, if you are spreading margarine straight from the refrigerator, you are applying pressure with a knife. The margarine can then be distributed over the slice of bread.

The plastic properties of a margarine or spread are determined by its formulation, manufacture and the temperature of the product when you are using it. The fat in margarine is mainly liquid oil but the oil is held in place by a network of small needle shaped fat crystals.

The rest of what you said about butter versus margarine is quite true.

Butter does burn easier so be careful when using it for cooking.

You're welcome. Smiley
60619  Entertainment / Politics and Political Issues / Re:what's wrong with voting Kerry? on: October 29, 2004, 09:24:43 PM
Ok. Those were my reasons for not voting for Kerry. You want my reason for voting for Bush here they are.

1.) Bush supports the passage of a Federal Marriage
     Protection Amendment.

2.) Permanent Extension of the $1000.00 Per Child Tax Credit

3.) Educational Choice for Parents (Vouchers)

4.) Federal Funding for Faith-based Charitable Organizations

5.) Permanent Elimination of the Marriage Penalty Tax

6.) Permanent Elimination of the Death Tax

7.) Banning Partial Birth Abortions

8.) Prescription Drug Benefits for Medicare Recipients

9.) Allowing Younger Workers to Invest a Portion of their
     Social Security Tax in a Private Account

10.) Benefits for Veterans, especially those sick or injured in
      time of war

11.) Supports the Military in Supplies, Benefits and Pay Raises
 

Opposes:

1.) Unrestricted Abortion on Demand

2.) Public Financing of Abortions

3.) Federal Firearms Registration & Licensing of Gun Owners

4.) Adoption of Children by Homosexuals

5.) Placing US Troops Under UN Control

6.) Affirmative Action Programs that Provide Perferential
     Treatment

7.) Opposes Government Benefits for Illegal Aliens

In addition to all these he has a proven track record in his votes for the things that he states that he is for (doesn't flip flop).

There are more that I can't remember at this moment but these will do for now.

A man that accuses another of the wrong doing that he has done.


An excellant article, brother, thank you.

blackeyedpeas,

Love your sarcasm..

A tape released today is Bin Laden campaigning for Kerry.



One more reason to:

VOTE FOR BUSH!

I hadn't checked this thread for awhile but thought I would say why I am now a Kerry supporter.

I really thought Edwards was the proper choice so I would have said that he was the best man, but that choice is no longer available.

Kerry is slow to anger.  This is a complicated War we are in, simple direct actions are likely to be simply wrong.  We must consider the effects our actions will have years from now, not just shoot from the hip.  Kerry is clearly more suited to think situations over before taking action.

Is that the reason he is making accusations against Bush before he has all the facts (the missing weapons). Is that the reason that he keeps changing his mind on how he votes on different bills.

Quote
Kerry's tax policy is better for the middle class.  The moral strength of our country comes from the middle class.  The Middle Class is in great danger of shrinking.   A US without a large Middle Class is just another third-world country.

Rolling back tax cuts that Bush put in helps the middle class, right.


Quote
Kerry is willing to cooperate with other countries.  The US must turn from the idea that we are the only superpower and it's our way or the highway.  We aren't going to win anything if it's the US against the World.  Kerry is quite well suited to meet with and negotiate favorable positions for the US even with countries that aren't always our best friends.

Cooperating with the enemy so they get their way and are able to overcome us.

Quote
Kerry's health care plan is the better of the two.  That isn't saying a lot, but it is better.  It would help where people are loosing their whole life's work to catastrophic health care costs.  It would also help remove some of the fear employers have of hiring someone who might or does have health issues.

I am handicapped and I don't see Kerry's health "plan" helping anyone. In fact it will cause more health problems by allowing prescription drugs that are not safe for consumption to be used. His "plan" also calls for our children to get certain types of care without their parents consent or notification.
60623  Theology / General Theology / Re:Long Hair. 1Cor.11:1-16 on: October 29, 2004, 01:47:32 PM
I have been a longhair for 40 years Grin

<Smiley))><

Amen, Brother. I have been a short hair for 54 years.

Most people that approach this subject over look the verse:

1Co 11:16  But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
60624  Entertainment / Politics and Political Issues / Re:Russia tied to Iraq's missing arms on: October 29, 2004, 01:08:12 PM
Like most situations there are a lot of "experts" that speak up and will complain and judge others saying how poor a job they did.

This was a war and in a war there is a lot of confusion and things sometimes do get overlooked. One of the objectives was to find and destroy all munitions/explosives that could be used against us (the main objective was to get their army under control with as few of ours being killed as possible). There were many munitions/explosives that did get destroyed. For various reasons not all of these got recorded.

There were satellite pictures taken at the onset of the war that showed munitions trucks moving loads out of the country that could not be stopped and checked or destroyed.

Was this a poor operation by our troops? NO! This operation went fairly smooth and our troops did their job in an excellant and professional manner from planning to execution.

60625  Entertainment / Politics and Political Issues / Re:Kerry Endorsers on: October 29, 2004, 11:16:32 AM
You forgot a few......

Yassir Arafat supports Kerry

Kim Jong Il supports Kerry

Fidel Castro supports Kerry

former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad supports
   Kerry (Mahathir is an anit-semitic. This year, he urged U.S.
   Muslims to vote for Kerry "in the name of Islam".)

And there are others. I find it interesting that all of these are either socialists/communists or terrorists and all are or have been enemies of the U.S. that have a desire to see us go their way.

60626  Theology / Apologetics / Re:Teen Study Bible on: October 29, 2004, 10:46:59 AM
For those of you that might be considering getting a study Bible for your teens I would like to point out the NIV Teen Study Bible published by Zondervan.

It is NOT a Godly book. I am sure some of you are saying, "Here we go again with the KJV versus the NIV debate."  Well, that is not what this is about. I am not talking about the interpretation of this version but the pages that are in placed in between.

Please read this link for more very important information.

http://www.av1611.org/kjv/nivteen.html

I don't think any good Christian parent wants their teen reading this. At least I don't.

Good info, you get "TWO"Thumbs UP - Thanks




Thank you.

60627  Theology / Apologetics / Re:Teen Study Bible on: October 29, 2004, 10:45:57 AM
The person who wrote the page made a very very big mistake.

The alternate definitions are not definitions for a christian teen...they are definitions that the normal 'teen' has come up with! The alternate definition propose what 'teens' think about an issue not what we as Christians should think.

in the zondervan teen study bible 1998...Witnessing: alternate definition - telling your friends about God and sometimes having them laugh at you.

Most teens (with the exception of those that already have it instilled properly in them) will see the "laugh at you" and not heed anything else.

Quote
The purpose of the alternate definition is to show what the normal average teen thinks...it does not promote or encourage that thought...on the contrary it shows why that is wrong.

How does it show that is wrong?



60628  Theology / General Theology / Re:Long Hair. 1Cor.11:1-16 on: October 29, 2004, 12:08:31 AM
This is what the Bible says about it:

1Co 11:14  Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?
1Co 11:15  But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.
1Co 11:16  But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.

1Ti 2:9  In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

1Pe 3:3  Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;

I used to have German Shepherd/Basenji dogs. Now that I am handicapped I can't handle b ig dogs like that anymore and my landlord wouldn't allow it anyway. So I decided to go with a Rat Terrier.

Meet Buster, this is him after a walk in the cold.




Nap time.
