  1. Waxit: Is it finally getting thtough to you that you have convinced no one at GSC about hour Sabbath argument? That it makes no sense? Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. Sound a bit like you. Stayed Too Long
  2. Waxit These three verses just don’t go away and you just keep ignoring them. Are you a glutton for punishment? If you check prior postings, you will notice that you have convinced no one of your atgument concerning the Sabbath. For weeks you have been throwing out the same arguments and getting the same negative responses. “Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.” Have you heard that one before?
  3. I fall in the category of agnostic after reading this article. To me, there is certainly a Higher Power that has helped me through out my life. I used to attend Overeaters Anonymous meetings, and they have adapted Alcoholics Anonymous 12 steps for their program. Several of the steps require a belief in a Higher Power, who will assist you in overcoming your addiction. No more can I believe in a God, who created a Son, by impregnating a maiden on Earth. This birth caused all male babies under the age of one, to be executed. Or the Son rising from the dead, so mankind could be saved from all their wrong doings. It is difficult to understand what a couple did (eat an apple.) in the Garden of Eden centuries ago, was so terrible that it made me a sinner, in need of redemption. I wasn’t around at the time, don’t blame me. I have participated in Ouija board sessions. That plastic thingamajig, answered every question it was asked correctly, except once, and that answer was within the ballpark of possibilities. The spelling was always accurate. A group of us got together and performed levitations. Amazing what was done. These are considered in the realm of Satan. But, in all my years as a Christian did I witness anything supernaturally happening. Raising someone from the dead is always talked about, but only done in books or accounts from the bible. Never saw anyone recover from a disease after being prayed for by having hands laid on them. Anyway, the Ouija board and levitation convinced me there is a Higher Power, who is above my pay grade, that can help me with my daily life. I don’t pray for help, just focus my mind on my Higher Power helping get the job done.
  4. Thanks Rocky...just one of those days, Something didn’t look right, but couldn’t put me finger on it.
  5. How did Wierwille put it? “Troubling versus understood in light of the clear versus.” I think this is about the only defense Waxit has in his quiver to explain these three versus away. Of course, that assumes all the versus Waxit’s is using in his arguments are the clear ones. Then you have to ignore that Jesus came to fulfill the law. .
  6. “I’m going to turn you ins4ide out:” I can imagine what someone would look like. means the same as clean your Clock. Jim Croce’s “Meaner Than a Junk Yard Dog.” Never heard that expression before this song. The visuals are getting torn limb from limb from a huge Doberman Pincher. ’ Looked Like A Jigsaw Puzzle With A Couple of Pieces Gone.” What a bloody mess he must have been.
  7. Waxit Do you have any plans to address: Romans 14: 5-6; Galatians 4: 9-10, Colossians 2:16? I didn’t quote the three versus because they have been brought to your attention numerous times by several other posters.
  8. These verses have been put to you by a number of posters. Yet you refuse to address them....they are an elephant in the room you have chosen to ignore. According to Galatians 4:9-10, you have returned to the bondage you claim to want to get others out of. It appears you are engulfed in Bondage again. 2 Peter 2:22 is where you are in your life according to the Word of God: 2 Peter 2:22, "But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire." You may not realize it, but you are not biblically in a place most Christians want to reside in.

  10. Nice Four grain loaf. 1. Whole Wheat 2. Dark Rye, 3. Spelt, 4. White. This recipe, from http://Breadtopia.com/ is a three day process. Day 1: Mix whole wheat flour and starter for 12 hours. Day 2: Blend in the Dark Rye, Spelt, and White flour from Day 1. Let rise in refrigerator for 24 hours. Day 3: Knead and let rise 4 - 6 hours. Bake 475 degrees for 45 minutes. Some recipes call for mixing all the flour and water, and let set 30 - 60 minutes, to allow all the flour to completely absorb the water.. This process is called autolyse. https://bakerpedia.com/processes/autolyse/
  11. I have a close relative who seems to hold it as a badge honor that she has never attempted any type of modern communication. Not even a cell phone. She was given a cell phone by her daughter to use in case of an emergency. I asked what the cell number was and was told, with a smile on her face, “I threw it in the bottom of my purse and have no plans to ever use it.” She could connect with her children and grandkids, but refuses to do so. Go figure.
  12. Being separated physically by many miles from our families presents it’s challenges. On our minds quite often is how they are doing, what’s the latest movie they watched, how is life with the new boy friend, did they gat the package you sent? Endless little things that make our hearts grow fonder each day. When I was in the Navy in Viet Nam, without a doubt, mail call was the high light of our day. We could not wait for a letter from home or a package containing cookies or candy. A picture of our family or buddies was the absolute greatest thing. Finding out the grandparents were doing just fine was vety comforting. I wasn’t married or had a girlfriend, but my shipmates who were, longed to know about their children’s school grades and who their latest friend was. I witnessed grown men completely break down when they got a “Dear John” letter. One even jumped ship and swam ashore to the Viet Cong. My daughter and her family recently moved away from home. A promotion sent them a 1,000 miles away. Adjustment at first was quite difficult, but gradually it became easier to accept. Enter modern technology. The separation has been so much easier to accept because of IM, Facetime, and the multitude of other communication devices. My daughters family just got a new puppy, and seeing the happiness in my granddaughters faces is immeasurable. Watching them chasing the pooch or him running them down is so much fun. Viewing them live as they open their birthday gifts is so neat. Just watching them for 15 minutes drawing their latest cartoon character, or seeing them staying within the lines coloring a teddy bear. Seeing my wife’s face light up as she so intently observes their every movement, is priceless. Yes, modern technology has allowed our family to stay up to date with each other. Is it as good as physically being together? No. But, it is certainly better than waiting weeks for a letter to arrive.
