Oklahoma Howdy to All,

George Bush will be the next President. There is no competition.

Oklahoma Howdy to Sammy,

With your thinking, we could just do away with most of our minor offenses and let everyone do what they want to. If you've ever speeded, ran a stop sign, ran a red light, or did any number of other minor offenses and didn't get a ticket, you shouldn't advocate anyone getting a ticket. Again, inside-out, backward thinking never works very well. Instead of 50,000 people dying in traffic accidents every year, maybe we could quickly get that number up to 100,000 a year.

It's really sad that in our last two wars it was safer for a soldier to go to war than to stay home. More were killed in the U.S. in accidents and violence at home than were killed in the war. Why don't you run for Congress and do away with most of those stupid laws designed to keep folks alive and have some semblance of civilization. I won't vote for you, but you can run anyway. By the way, drug use is directly related to between 60 and 80 percent of all crimes in most states. Maybe we could be easier on drug users and escalate all of our crime rates by double. Well, after thinking about it, NO!, that wouldn't be very smart.

In Christ.

My point is: If George Bush used drugs, It is wrong of him to support a stiffening of Drug laws.  But that is exactly what he is doing.

Oklahoma Howdy to Sammy,

If you think about what you just said, it makes no sense at all. Let's say I almost got killed in an accident while driving drunk. Later I became a congressman and decided to try and limit the number of folks being mamed and killed because of drunk driving. I would have personal experience about why such laws were needed.

In another example of completely backward thinking, you shouldn't holler at your kid for running into the street. After all, you ran into the street when you were a kid. Inside out, backward thinking never makes much sense.

In Christ.

Any snide comments about Bush and his haydays is dumb.  You find me a sober or even remotely honest politician and I MIGHT listen.  The highest amount of "law" breakers in the land are the same ones who make them.

Oklahoma Howdy to Saved_4ever,

If our members of Congress weren't politicians, they would probably be in prison.  Grin
56525  Entertainment / Politics and Political Issues / Skull and Crossbones at Yale on: May 06, 2003, 12:48:11 AM
Oklahoma Howdy to Psalm 119 and Kathleen5,

I must admit that I don't know what Skull and Crossbones is. I first thought it might be like a fraternity in college. I guess that I will have to do a search and find out what it is. I belonged to a fraternity 35 years ago and I didn't disassociate myself from it. There was really nothing active after I got out of college. We've had no meetings, reunions, etc. Mine was the standard run-of-the-mill college fraternity. Our worst actions were pranks in pledge week, and that's about it.

Is Skull and Crossbones supposed to be some sort of lifelong activity, or was it a one-time deal in college like my fraternity? I would question judging someone for an activity so many years ago. I'll get more of an eduation on the subject and post again.

In Christ.

Your messages and graphics are a real Blessing! Is there a place to get beautiful graphics like that?

I think Mr Bush has done a lot of great things for our country.  However I also agree with Jon, being associated with Skull and bones leaves somes BIG questions.  

In Christ

Oklahoma Howdy to Kathleen5,

I doubt that many would wish to be judged by some of the boneheaded things they have done in their youth. I don't know of anyone who doesn't have enough skeleton bones in the closet to construct a small Dino. I know that I wouldn't wish to be judged by some of my stupid stunts I pulled.

We can't look at the heart of President Bush. However, if he is playing at being a Christian, he sure is going to a lot of trouble and taking a ton of flak for his open expressions of Christ, prayer, and other actions a Christian would take. If he is a Christian, he has been forgiven for his sins and should be judged by what he is doing now. I believe he is a Christian. He certainly isn't close to perfect, even now, but he is head and shoulders above what we had. I'm not trying to be critical, just two cents worth.

In Christ,

Oklahoma Howdy to Symphony,

You call that relaxing?  Grin

What are you doing there?

1.  Running in place.
2.  Dancing.
3.  Trying to put out a fire.
4.  Charging in a mini-stampede.

Enquiring minds want to know.

In Christ,

56531  Prayer / Prayer Requests / Re:Could you pray for me? on: May 01, 2003, 05:33:08 AM
Oklahoma Howdy to Broken,

You didn't waste our time. We have been praying for you, and we will continue to pray for you. Try to look at things in a positive light and use this opportunity to turn your life around in a direction that will have you happy and make your family proud. The direction you were going was down, and worries about job and acceptance should be the last thing you think about. Your opportunities for a good job and acceptance by your family will be much better when you head in the right direction.

I pray that you take this opportunity to pray for guidance and healing. You are very young and have your whole life ahead of you. Welcome the treatment and welcome JESUS. I ask these things in the name of JESUS. Amen.
56532  Theology / Prophecy - Current Events / Re:The Noose Tightens(Gay Rights) on: May 01, 2003, 05:11:27 AM
underground,

You called me a hateful person for condemning homosexual behavior. I condemn and hate the sin, not the person. That would be difficult to understand unless you know something about the Bible and have Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour.

It is just and correct for a Christian to condemn homosexual behavior. This will never change, regardless of what laws are passed. They can't make a law that forces respect of sin. I doubt you will understand what I just said, but I said it anyway. God loves the person, but hates the sin.

I could really care less who believes that homosexual behavior should be accepted and respected. I will never accept or respect homosexual behavior. If you don't like that, TOUGH!

I'm not a politician, and I don't have to be politically correct or sugar-coat abominable behavior. It's not hateful to call sin "SIN", and that's what it is.
56533  Theology / Apologetics / Re:'For by grace you have been saved... on: May 01, 2003, 05:00:33 AM
Oklahoma Howdy to Sean,

Yes, you are correct. No person is good enough to get to Heaven. There is only one way to Heaven. Jesus Christ is the WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE. I think it is very sad that some folks think they can add something of any value to the BLOOD OF JESUS with their own goodness, works, or righteousness.

God's children do benefit greatly when they attempt to do the will and purpose of God. Our fellowship with Jesus is fuller and the fruits of the Spirit are more bountiful (i.e. peace, joy, love). When we don't follow the will and purpose of God, we can expect chastisement and lesser fellowship with Christ. Our good works are simply the reasonable service of a grateful child. If we have anything to boast about, it will be in Christ. If we have any glory, it will be glory, honor, and praise to God.

Do you believe we can choose Christ and be saved or do you think we are pre-destined (calvanist) to be saved or judged?

Oklahoma Howdy to Sean,

I think that many people have a lot of confusion and trouble with the term, "Predestination". Almighty God knows all in eternity past and eternity future. This is the meaning of predestination. Jesus wants all of mankind to love HIM, accept Him as their personal Saviour, and follow HIM as the Lord of their life. Almighty God's foreknowledge of all does not mean that HE has commanded some to be saved and some not to be saved. Almighty God simply knew before the foundation of the world your name, the number of hairs on your head, and whether or not you will accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour.

Some take the term of "Predestination" and claim that God commands and programs some people, much like robots, to become children of God. If this were true, HE would command all people to become children of God and obey HIS will and purpose. The world would be a beautiful place if this was true. However, Almighty God gave mankind will and choice to accept or reject Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour.

In Christ.
