    Happy Deathday!

    So there's some keen musos here. Think you should get yourselves together and lay down some tracks for us.

    Gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Catholic Church

    Yet another update, I think; it opens now. But in any event, the video is still 1h4m long and I just don't have that time. It would be considerate when people post long videos, if they'd say how long they take and indicate specific times when something is interesting.

    For those who might be interested, this video (which I can't access) is 1h4m long.

    The Manipulation of Language

    "Bless" in conjunction with practically any other words - "Would you be blessed to...?" "I was blessed when …" "God blessed me with …" (usually something material, especially money) and of course "Bless Patrol."

    Is the real LCM on Twitter?

    Doncha know, all the internet is full of devil spirits, and should not be engaged with under any circumstances (lest one encounter GSC or its predecessors, of course: the most devilish of all).

    Wierwille's 1958 Fledgling Splinter Group

    Y'all know about George Muller, who founded orphanages in Bristol - funded with nothing but prayer. According to the timeline, he too started out as a bit of a shyster and only went into "ministry" as an easy way to make money. However, he really "saw the light" and took the Bible seriously, and the charity that he founded is still going today, and works to help orphans globally. Here's his timeline, but if you go to the Home page you'll find out more about present-day work. https://www.mullers.org/timeline I do not know if VPW knew of this bigger history and decided to "imitate" it (we were only told that GM prayed, and resources poured in). However, "by their fruits you shall know them." Who built on solid ground, and who on the sand of ego?

    Bad Tap Water

    Ah, thanks, Waysider. And there's me wondering why the water has graduate levels in foreign languages. The water is hard in this area. Kettles and suchlike fur up quickly. Generally it's fine, but once in a while it's like drinking rocks (probably some loosened limescale from the kettle, rather than the water itself). Nice tasty (or rather, tasteless) water, though. I always put soda in with my laundry detergent; softens the water, keeps the washing machine in a bit better condition. The water company in this area has a really good reputation, on many fronts.

    Whaaaatttt? He acknowledges that Sunday night is a pain for everybody, especially families with kids - but then elevates that difficulty, spiritualising it and setting against "nominal Christians" who presumably are a bit more considerate towards kids' needs. What's he doing with his Sunday mornings, anyway? Teaching in the church that pays his salary, or just plain having a lie-in? (well, yeah, he is having a lie in, and out, and everywhere he goes. Can't stop lying.)

    Hard water: Whatever does "Degrees Clark/German/French" mean?

    Bad Tap Water

    I just checked my own water quality, according to the local Water Authority. This is a precis of what they say. It's all meaningless to me! It's nice tasting, but as everywhere in this area, there's a lot of limestone, and kettles and suchlike fur up quickly.

    Wow, you folks have some pretty nasty problems! Though no doubt there are billions of people with no problems.

    Hi Surfcat. Maybe we know a few people in common. I got witnessed to in Birmingham mid 80s and then met many of the other UK believers, in London, Gartmore, and other locations. Anyhow, welcome, and enjoy your stay. Have a nice cup of tea and some yummy cake.

    Prosperity Preachers

    Good article. Beware scammers everywhere - especially in churches!
  14. Hmm, she did that in 2016, when he first appeared in court. Distancing herself. Closing the door after the horse has bolted, as it were. What, she only just found out about Vic's indiscretions?

    Oh WW. That poem. A good poem of its time, but very tainted for me. It was so used to support VPW's leading the way for the fair-haired LCM. Maybe I should read the poem repeatedly until it loses its associations (like I can hear the word "Corps" now without my hair standing on end).
