Heh

That was funny! That cat was trying hard to get in there!

Man what a great year for Megatron though. Too bad he missed one game of his stats would be even higher. They got a rough schedule coming up but if they win the games they are supposed, should be a playoff year.

My Dad bought me a fully restored 1971 Barracuda for my 16th birthday. It was purple and shiny and just flat out scary looking. I never got a chance to drive it because my right leg was either in a cast or a brace. I wasn't able to get my driver's license until I was 18 and even then, I couldn't drive a manual transmission car. After they cut my leg off, I thought about getting it modified with hand controls but that would have ruined the beauty of it. I sold it and now I drive an 85 Chevy Scottsdale. It's an automatic with a bench seat. I use my left leg.

It took me 40 years to get a Vette. IMHO 68-82 Vettes are the most graceful body styles of any car.

I like AMC because they went up against the "big boys" and for awhile, they did OK. Government regulations (emission controls) killed them like they killed all good cars. Look at a 69 GTO and a 73 GTO.

I think the difference is between doing bad accidentally, as well all do, and doing bad on purpose. Those things that we know are wrong and do them anyway even though it would be just as easy not to do them.
In Leviticus there are different offerings for unintended and intentional sins. Makes sense.
I have always considered all sin deliberate as I didn't know what sin could be considered accidental.

But I saw in Leviticus it gave a few examples such as touching an unclean animal without knowing or making a promise and forgetting to keep it. Although I guess it comes down to knowing as it said both would be considered sins once the person realized what he did was a sin either by learning or remembering

I think that is probably why Hebrews makes the distinction of willfully sinning. And probably why the Bible often talks about knowing the truth and turning from it. And how people in that situation are actually considered worse for their sins as they knew better.

It raises an interesting question as to ignorance or even willful ignorance. In a way it seems almost as if the more one knows then the more culpable they become. And there is a lot said about witnessing but nothing really as far as what duty a believer has to learn the scriptures. Although people generally were taught by others back then versus being self-taught, that is something I am now curious to look into.

But I agree that there is a difference as far as mindset.

I like the way they look but I don't want a car that cares whether or not I have my seat belt on or not. I think I can figure that out. I don't want a car that tells me when the door is open. I understand that. I don't want a car that can parallel park for me. If I can't do that, I shouldn't be driving. I certainly don't want a car that will brake for me.

I'm afraid of these new cars. Skynet !!!!

The first thing I did when I bought my truck was to take out the interior light. I don't want people to know when I open my door.

You're probably right.

I'll give her the benefit of the doubt, and see if there is anything positive in her forthcoming posts.

If there isn't, then I will withdraw any respect for her.

A more important question would be "how many people that you know are gay but you don't know it.

The 'stereotypical gay' is a minority amongst a minority.

In California, if you do that (they're called historical plates here), driving is restricted to traveling to and from shows.

Of course, one can cheat, but I use my roadster too much for that.

Still, my carrier (State Farm) gives me the antique car rate, which is higher than yours but far less than the "normal" rate.

I am curious to why the sudden approach to ownership?

Is it not fair to say you and many others have often spoke with authority as to Christianity. Now it seems like you are saying that is something perhaps you and others should have been deferring to those in the faith?

Personally I don't think it is quite as black and white as I think some things come down to knowledge. Someone may know more than someone in a particular aspect of an overall subject even if they would not fall into that classification. I think to assume someone is an expert due to affiliation and automatically knows more than someone that is not is probably not the case a lot of times.

However I do think there are areas that it would make more sense to defer. For example, I wouldn't try to say I know more about what someone deals with being gay in Western culture than someone who is gay. Just like someone who is an atheist can't claim to know they know why someone believes more than that person.

Although this is can be applied to most things when it comes to state of mind. To know what someone has experienced it would be necessary to know the mind and heart of that person which isn't possible.

Also I agree this is an issue you are much more likely to know more about in general. Although I would say factual elements are up for grabs. Whether in the faith or not, it would be a fact to say the largest denomination in the United States is Catholic. Whether gay or not, it is a fact same-sex marriage was first recognized in Massachusetts. Regardless of affiliation, whoever knows those things would be correct.

So I guess I am asking what things do you consider areas people not classified as part of a group should generally be deferred to someone who is, specifically when it comes to homosexuality and Christianity?
