I hate how children are being used to further someone's agenda. They don't deserve this.
Many people want to either blame God or expect God to fix things.

We fail them every day...
This is what I'm talking about Annie... what about NAMbLA using children to further their "lustful" agenda? Don't you think "some" (gay, gay-affirmers and non-gay alike) are interested to know what lurks out there? Especially when it comes to the agenda towards the boy scouts to further "their" own agenda?

Come on now...

He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand.
Proverbs 10:4

The soul of the sluggard desireth and hath nothing.
Proverbs 13:4

I went by the field of the slothful and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding and lo,it was all grown over with thorns and nettles had covered the face thereof and the stone wall thereof was broken down.Proverbs 23:30&31

But if any provide not for his own and specially for thoses of his own house he that denied the faith and is worse than an infidel.

You thought of more than you know Sister Friend! The sky is painted rather stormy here today...

Blaming God is the easy way out... and yet I have never understood that. How many little children - who become innocent victims of any abuse... and even in this case witness that of their parents - can even know to blame God?

What I do like about that little song is that she turned to the only one she believed could help. And Ja... no doubt was taught.
That... for a child's mind is better than no comfort as SO many have none.

To say we fail them every day, when some give their life for this cause, is certainly amplifying the need of the future of this planet!

Well, you just condemned Leviticus. You have my complete agreement BTW. Any other books you'd like to edit out of the Bible?
"NAMBLA's legal organization supports lawsuits brought to force the Boy Scouts to accept homosexual leaders.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) joins NAMBLA in these efforts against the Boy Scouts, and continually supports the homosexual agenda, and continually attacks any semblance of Christianity or conventional religion in our public schools or governmental bodies."

You've got some politicized propaganda. What I was looking for was an objective news source to confirm this claim. Anything from the ACLU themselves maybe?

It matter not to me, either way. Like I've been saying, the theories fascinate me, especially considering those structures that remain without explanation to the scientific community. If anything, I think what should come of their theories is an awareness of a possible, destructive future. Whether verifiable history or not, we can learn from it.

The conversation between QUIN and I had not been about stealing...I saw no point in his question.
However...I will answer it for you. Stealing is against our laws. Stealing involves someone being a victim. Yes...I oppose it on those grounds. I would think that even Christians would oppose it even if it wasn't a part of the 10 Commandments.
<quoted text>
No to both of those questions...neither has anything to do with it.
<quoted text>
I use my Bible...yes.
Simply because I do not agree with all of it does not mean that there aren't some good words written within it. Words that I think can and do apply to us all.
When I left Christianity why would I leave the part behind that I could believe in?
I love the Songs of Solomon. I think it is beautiful poetry. You would probably be surprised how often that I do read it.
I believe that Jesus taught many good lessons.
I see it as a self-help book...many good things can be gleamed from it. Not all of it do I find helpful for my life just as other self-help books that I have read.
There is another reason that I read it...I believe that if there is to be peace among us that we have to make the effort to understand each other. How could I possibly do that if I don't understand your beliefs.
Often on this thread and others things are said that I don't recall being a certain way...I go check for myself. Sometimes you guys will interpret differently...if I want to know why...I go searching.
My Bible studies are actually based often on what is said here on this thread.
Besides...If someone is going to beat me over the head with a book...I need to make sure that they are beating me over the head correctly...often...they are not.
<quoted text>
I often use the word sin myself...so you would be thinking wrong.
Once again...stealing is a crime against another person...there is a victim involved...it is wrong.
BTW The only time that I will ask you for a link is when you are putting words in my mouth that I did not say.
My point to the question is that one can try to justify sin but in the end it is still sin no matter how much flour, sugar and sprinkles one puts on it.

Lol.. it's a hard job but someone has to do it, like taking out the trash..
Great, I feel so much better now that I'm not carrying all that h8te around, I guess being an atheist isn't that great after all and I'm pleased to inform that the sky did indeed forgive my momentary backsliding and filled me with Love once again, gotta Love that sky :D
Blessings dear Bro <3
Good evening JLU, sorry it took me a little while to respond to your post, but the only sky that we need to Bless us is the Lord Jesus Christ, defending to truth from those who are so misguided is like taking out the trash indeed ( the rhetoric they are talking, not the people themselves) it can get very tiresome at times, but as one friend of mine likes to say.......we must never weary of well doing.

Peace my friend.

I remember Frankenstein well. I'm 58 years old. And no, I've never played Frankenstein, but we did do Rock And Roll Hootchie Coo.

Maybe you might like some technical input on Frankenstein. Most of those Na's are upbeats in the first measure, then downbeats in the second. In 4/4 time :

/|||/-|| 0 -

Where | is a quarter note,/ an eighth, 0 a half, and - a measure divider.

This is the same sound as in ZZ Top’s La Grange


/|||||//|/

And you'll hear it in a lot of John Lee Hooker Detroit blues stuff. Notice the heavy upbeat in this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch...

It’s called “an upbeat” because when you’re strumming down-up down-up down-up down-up down-up down-up for 1-and-2-and-3-and-4-and, you’re mostly strumming on the way up, on the “and”s.

We covered Ten Years Gone from Zep, and Comfortably Numb and Brain Damage from Pink Floyd. I did a few Elton John songs, but not with the band. I liked Tiny Dancer ("The words she knows, the tune she hums") and Rocket Man ("all this science, I don't understand ... It's just my job five days a week") best.

As for the Allman Brothers, we did a ton of their songs - Blue Sky, Melissa, Aint Wastin Time No More, Stormy Monday, Jelly Jelly, Southbound, Get On With Your Life, Seven Turns, Come And Go Blues, It Aint Over Yet, Low Down Dirty Mean and many renditions of In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed.

Thanks for sharing. That music is dear to me.

You forget in your backsliding or never learned it... that Jesus took those types of ordinances out of the way... the ceremonial and judical parts of the Mosaic law. We use it mostly for reference.

No political agenda necessarily... a biblical one... just that fornications is sin even though people try to pretty it all up.

You mean from Fox News or the "liberal" media?

<quoted text>Okay... I guess this is one of those Red-herring thingies... There were different kinds of slaveries... and some of them are not even called that any more as people are simply hired at contract to perform a certain task now-a-days or hired to do some obligatory work.
At that time service "mostly" was more closely related to Employer/employee versus Owner/slave (and there was that too). Then there were debt/bondage where a person owed a debt and instead of going to debtor's prison if he could not pay he would serve until he met his payment.
God isn't into Egypt/Hebrew or American-type of slavery.
