I have always felt more times than not, people who belong to these larger and very profitable churches are merely supporting a false profit. Perhaps a whole throng of his appointed are as greedy as well.

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.

Well Miss, I don't hang onto anyone's coat tail about GOD or anything else. God gave the the mental capacity to read and comprehend his word and my relationship is personal and not dictated by someone else that just might be going down the wrong path. Sure he may use television, radio, internet, the pulpit, paper and any other media for those that require that.. but I don't.
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.

Really, what's the difference? Muslims claim Allah is the same Abrahamic God as the God of the Jews and Christians.

Good morning, Abeliever. Hope you have minimal trouble with ice. This time, the southern part of Ky got the foul weather, usually it is north, near the river.
Nothing wrong about alluding to a representative. Adults should be able to talk about this, as well as any other subject. I don't "talk politics," but when policy issues directly affect my well-being or pocket book, I don't shy away from discussing these important matters. Take for instance, gun control, higher taxes, increased cost of gas and necessary goods, or first and second Amendment rights of citizens. There is a difference...And no, there is no other thread that addresses these issues. Now those folks on the Rand Paul site are not even "talking politics". They are just bashing each other, and I want no part of that.
You are correct there, usually we get everything since that line of snow/sleet/ice etc they use on the weather map always seems to dip down the northern part of Kentucky. This time the southern part got it.

On the politic statement. I don't like to discuss politics even with family most times, I didn't say I NEVER discussed them. I don't post on any thread on a regular basis outside this one. I do pop into a couple now and then if it is something I feel passionate about to leave a comment (that's about it..."A COMMENT".
You are totally correct in your analogy of the randpaul sites. Mostly bashing, hate, gloom and doom on those sites. Your fake buddy Chicago girl lives on there and I found that out by accident. I think she followed you, Stevie or Whitehair over here since all of them and the bird thread is always on top of the forum. I noticed the anyplace, Illinois posts with the sheep baaa and went back a few pages during similiar times posting on this site. Sure enough. There was the faker spinning locations, United States, anyplace Illinois lots of sheep baaaaing. UNA and Imposter was right FAKE and LIAR. I posted ONE comment on there because I am passionate about it. Ditch Mitch McConnell on the news wanting to redistrict and change voting rules instead of working on the needs of the people he represents. He needs to go. A lot of them on both sides of the isle need to go. Career politicians. There is only one Elizabethtown post that I seen, mine. I don't spin my location or use other people's computers to deceive people like it stated.(Obviously it does along with that phone, possibly why all the locations). Either way, I don't post everyday every other hour like those people do on there. I avoid that site due to all the hate they sling. Pretty sad for all Americans that they come to that over politics. On your statement about those issues you mentioned...all leads to politics and those who make the laws. Not much of a way around it when discussing those issues. However, that is why those threads are on top like the bird thread. I liked that we pretty much avoided those subjects on here and just talked life in general, not issues that divide this country, friends, neighbors and family. United We Stand, Divided We Fall.

Didn't see it, but in the grand scheme of things that's what Topix is known for.
(I don't see any comments like that. Unless I didn't go back far enough).

I was busy yesterday and then just didn't feel like getting on here afterward. It was good to just sit back and let my mind wander off into the abyss.. No T.V., no news, nothing but the quiet and the peace of the world around me outside my own door. I do that occasionally.

It's good to give Topixland over to the general masses at times and allow your mind to heal from the mental assaults of misspellings, hate, rumors, personal attacks, etc.

The nastiness on these more localized threads can make you rethink the mental stability of the geographical populace around you. Most assuredly...

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.

Pain, oh yes plenty to spare. Then get to feeling bad. Temp 102. So off to the dr. Flu and bruised ribs and spine. But the coffee,, ummmm my black goddess still loves me.
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.

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.
