Well something must be missing in your reading ability if you have come to believe that it is acceptable to attack another believer for doing what the bible says to do. And even if it wasn't because you we're offended by my Christian posts, what part of the bible instructs you to attack anybody who has done nothing to you??? As I said, pew warmers like you are why people are running from the church. You play all holy on Sunday and you are no better than anybody else Monday-Saturday. If God's word offends you ANYTIME you better do some serious self-reflection.
missing reading ability?
offended over your posts?
pew warmer?
Holy on Sunday?

What part of attack do you not understand ? Maybe it is you that needs to look into the mirror of your soul.

You can never fully trust a large group when it comes to money and how they handle it. However, when people give their money freely, who are we to judge them for what was actually in their heart when they gave? It's their money, therefore it's their option on how they choose to give it away.
Or throw it away.
Helping to purchase velvet pews or a new Harley for a preacher wont buy your way into the pearly gates. What's in your heart, how you follow your faith and what your actions are here on earth most certainly will.
Just my opinion.
Give me a small, down home, humble church over those crystal cathedrals any day of the week. Many of those pastors from the large and elegant churches get caught up in the fame, which brings fortune, which brings possible deception and corruption. More times than not, that deception leads to their eventual downfall. If not from the pastors standpoint, then from someone else in the 'flock'.
Money = Greed.
Excess money = Trouble from greed.
It's all up to the believer. What they want to implement into their personal life as far as the scripture goes is also up to that same believer. That's the fundamental rights we have, thanks to our freedom of choosing personal religion in the USA.
Some people enjoy the glitz and glamor of these billion dollar pillars of faith.
I can do my best worshiping from home.
I had rather have church with 10 true believers in a barn with a leaking roof and no heat or air conitioning than to set in a million dollar church with a bunch of backbiting fakes with crooks in charge.

I must add here that I do enjoy listening to Joel Osteen on occasion. He's motivating and his messages on human interaction and living are quite inspiring. However, I've never sent a dime nor purchased a book to support his ministry.

I even used to watch Robert Schuller. I found him to be extremely motivational as well. Again, never did I send a dime of support.
(That was the reasoning behind my reference to those "Crystal Cathedrals).

For some reason, Joyce Meyers doesn't do much for my mental psyche or personal faith. I find her too brassy and harsh, for lack of a better explanation.

(Again, these are just my personal opinions)

There you go again with your false accusations. Your so called Christ related posts are garbage and fakery as delivered by false teaching tele-evangelists. I can not create IP locations. Imposter is is own person. I have no need of sock puppets, another lie to your credit.

Good morning Lala. I hope those aches and pains work on out of you soon. I know how that is. Stein should have woke you up and told you to come to bed huh? haha
Yeah, he should have. Stein is almost human-like. Sometimes he is scary. I've had many dogs in my lifetime, but no other like him. At first I thought my tone of voice tipped him off as to what I was saying. So I started a little experiment. I would talk to him, then sneak in a command, in a normal conversational tone of voice. Boy, he would pick up on that message and immediately do what was asked. I really didn't work on training him any, but he is a super smart dog. It might be that he spends all his waking (and sleeping) time with me and our little guy. He is gentle with the little boy, and super protective of him. I'll bet you that AW's DOG is similar. Hope that you have a calmer day today, and don't worry about whether or not you are liked or disliked. Just be yourself. I really like all the people who post (including UNA). I think that he's really a great, big TEDDY bear. The smelly poot stuff is just a front, I think.

I saw something on the National Geographic channel yesterday that tends to blow racism out of the water, if it is even remotely true.
It said that Scientists had proven that the genetic DNA markers of all man kind can be traced to a population of about 2000 Hadzabe dark skinned natives out of Africa and that changes in those DNA markers have occurred as people spread out to other locations away from Africa.
It was not stating that we came from Apes but that the Adam and Eve story told in the Bible were most likely about African natives. Interesting whether I believe it or not.
My family has a mystery. And I only had a few pieces to the jigsaw puzzle. For many years, I settled with those pieces instead of the real answers.

haha You are so right. I lived in Tennessee a couple years on the Miss/Ala border and there was some "Miracle Tabernacle" down this long winding road across the street from where we lived. They were a wild bunch. Sometimes they would carry on in the wee hours of the night playing some blaring drums etc.. while the "Pastor" was performing "miracles". We had some company from KY one time and one was a member of a band. He gave in to curiosity, much to our objections and went over there to see what was going on.(We feared he would never come out of those woods). He was gone about an hour and told us that "Pastor" was performing a miracle on an old man in a wheelchair. But before he did they passed a collection plate around to aid him in his work, when it came up front he shook his head and said he needed a new Harley so he could "reach" people where cars were hard to reach and pass it around AGAIN. He had one of the biggest homes in the area, drove Lincoln Towncars, dressed to the nines, if you seen him at a restaurant he flashed his wad of cash around along with those fake teeth. He was a real trip. A friend of ours who was from that town said he was known for passing the plate again and again until he thought he had enough for the day. They were playing jungle music and throwing themselves around on the floor, wailing and our friend said talking in tongues. We had a big laugh about what he described and he was the only one who ever braved going over there. That guy was like so many other fakes taking good people's money promising them miracles. It is pretty sad, just like the nut who said the world was coming to an end and people sold all their possessions to give to him for their salvation.
LOL. Have you ever heard of Reverend Ike. What a trip he is. There are some scary dudes out there, all in the name of religion. I read the Bible, and take my cues about how to live, through the Good Book.

Actually I am not a Joel Osteen fan. I think he is no doubt more of a motivational speaker than an actual bible preacher. I agree with you, Joyce Meyer seems too brassy as you put it and really just angry to me. It is a turn off. BUT, considering where she came from and all that she has gone through in her life, no doubt I would be angry too. It is nothing but a miracle that she came out of what she was in and is now what and where she is. I know that a lot of her sermons help a lot of people who are going through similar things that she did. She helps a lot of people.
I quit giving to padded pew funds a good while ago. My money goes straight into missions.

Hello Hempburn. I am so sorry you feel bad. I hope the coffee helped. I hope the doctor gave you something to make you feel better than the java. That flu is making it's rounds, in some places it has caused schools to close. Here is the lack of rock salt remedy for frozen steps and sidewalks. It does work.

For icy steps and sidewalks in freezing temps, mix 1 tsp of Dawn dish washing liquid, 1 tbsp of rubbing alcohol, and 1/2 gallon hot/warm water and pour over walkways. They won't refreeze.

I can't imagine AW trying to offend anyone. He's pretty straight-forward and is not swayed by anybody on this thread, or anybody else for that matter. You are entitled to listen to who you like. As a matter of fact, I listen to Joyce Meyer, myself, but I have not contributed to the money coffers. I like her because she has had a pretty hard life, and just testifies to her belief in God. I look at it as equal time to refute the nonbelievers and Godless messages in t.v. programming today. But, like AW and many others, I put my belief in God, reading Scripture, and thanking our Creator for all the beautiful things that he created in this world.

Good morning Uglylala. I think the Southern part of the state got it worse. I am 9 miles North of the Tn. Border and the trees and ground are still covered with ice. Hopefully the Sun will melt it today. I tried the pan of hot water, tsp of dishwashing liquid, tsp of alcohol mixture, someone posted on here. I used it on the back steps yesterday. It deiced and didn't freeze back, even overnight.
Yeah, I am glad someone else used that recipe and it worked. Try it lala, I posted it for Hempburn.:)

I feel the same way about my present pack of dogs here. Smart as whips. I've done the same thing you mentioned, funny enough! Slip in some key words in passing, just to see the reaction I'd get.. But MAN!. They KNOW!

As the years have progressed, I'm not as much astounded as I was in my earlier years when it was THEM teaching ME a thing or two about "DOGS 101".

I've also discovered through the many years of dogs owning me, that it's MUCH easier to introduce and train the newbie when he or she can learn by "example" through watching the others in the house. It takes only two days at most for the newbie to catch on to the others actions and behaviors, soon discovering how and why those treats and soothing scratches on the head come about.
:)

Potty training also has NEVER been a problem for any of my dogs. Never! So I don't understand why some people have such a hard time with it! I had a dog one time that taught himself how to fetch the newspaper outside. He was the smartest I've ever owned so far. He knew all of this toys by name, would get my car keys, his leash and collar (separately, mind you), and even knew the difference in how I'd call out for him to get whatever bone I wanted him to fetch. He had an "old" bone and a "new" bone, so he actually understood the words "old and new" when applied to his huge chew bones. Oh, how I miss him.

I have had church in a barn. It was my duty as a child to clean out the barn and set it up with split logs for pews. I still have my granny's old paperback Hymnal from those days. Most of the time there was not even some leader with a sermon but the service was nothing more than a few neighbors with limited trnsportation into town church that were just keeping the faith. They would sing a few songs and each would tell of GOD's blessings that had been bestowed upon them recently.

It was somewhat disheartening when I did go to town church, it seemed like those people took great pride in trying to out misery each other instead of speaking about their blessings. Their "testimonials" would go on and on about their miseries and would make a teenager wonder "Jeez, did nothing good ever happen to them and if it did, would they give God the credit"?

Oh yeah I think dogs learn a lot by just being around people. And no doubt some are smarter than others according to breed or the mix they are. I believe the mixed breeds I have had have been the smartest.
Lala, I just came to this thread to waste some time like I guess most everybody else has. Like you I have a life beyond this. It is really disappointing that people will act the way they do to other people and do it for no reason. The scary thing is that those people are real and there are people somewhere who have to have them in their life to some extent. It's just sad how nasty this world is. But one day God will settle the score like only He can. Until then, we have nasty godless people to deal with. HONESTLY I wouldn't want those nasty people to like me. LOL

As I have said before, quite often, is that communication via internet often breaks down, because it is so easy to misunderstand the intent of message. A keyboad is a poor instrument for conveying emotion, message intent, tone of voice, facial expression, etc. It also hinders message interpretation by not allowing immediate feedback of message content. Harsh words, creates a barrier to effective communication. Just back down a little bit,and you might be surprised that you will find people who are interested in what you say, including me.

Well Lala, it may be hard to believe but all you have to do is scroll back the past several pages and you can see all the attacks. I'm afraid he's not the man some were led to believe. He really tossed that cape and crown aside and came after me for no reason other than my Christ-related posts.

Hemp, if it makes you feel better, I almost bit it yesterday too. I was able to catch myself. The dogs however, not so much. They were like bowling pins rolling down the steps outside yesterday morning. I felt SO bad. It was hard to get them to come back up after they'd done their duty. They didn't trust the steps after that.

I didn't realize early that everything was like a glazed donut out there, so I opened the door as usual. Not a good idea.... They barreled out like freight trains and then all of them started to tumble at once. It was horrid to watch.. Talk about slow motion horror!!

But I used AB's deicing recipe and it worked! We didn't have a problem out there the rest of the day, either!!
(But convincing the dogs of that wasn't easy.. Poor babies).

Thank God that fear passed due to a trio of deer that tickled their snouts as the door opened first thing today.

One is having to take baby aspirins though. Limping a little bit this morning, same as last night. A bit better than last night though, so I think we can avoid the vet. This time.
