  1. Ok
  2. Sorry guys, I've been wrestling with a stubborn and wayward CNC computer all morning and not feeling too "spiritual" right now. But by all means continue; this could get good.
  3. 1 John 4 1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 2Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 3And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 5They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. 7Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 9In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 10Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.12No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. 13Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. 14And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 15Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 16And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 17Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. 18There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.19We love him, because he first loved us. 20If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? 21And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
  4. The sheep will teach you.
  5. Also notice that while most of the sensible sheep keep their head at the trough, steadily gulping the feed down, there are always a few milling around wasting time. Time is critical at the feed trough because the feed will be gone very quickly. This happens every morning.
  6. They start eating hay right very soon after birth too.
  7. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young." - Isaiah 40:11 . The heavily pregnant ewes often fall behind the running flock because they have trouble walking. But the mothers with newborns usually take up the rear.. This prevents the very small babies from being trampled when the flock stampedes and it keeps the little ones from being separated from their mothers, which happens too easily when they are very small.. These twin lambs, toddling into the pasture, were born early this morning sometime before daylight. The little guy just ahead of them, was born three days ago. In a few days they will be leaping in the air and running like rabbits.
  8. I'm right there with ya, bro. Re-identifying would definitely be out of the question here, LOL
  9. "......and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one." Chambered in 5.56mm NATO.... Legal and widely available to law-abiding American civilians in semi-auto. The full-military version fires both semiauto and 3-shot burst. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M4_carbine
  10. We studied something similar in an IFB Bible college; Matthew was written to Jews, Mark was written to Gentiles/Romans, Luke spoke to the Greeks and John wrote to everyone, or something to that effect. Hence, each gospel has different wording of the same stories but they all agree. BUT, they ALL apply to everyone because we're ALL made out of the same stuff and I think Weary Warrior will agree with that; he/she seems to be a sensible person (Are you a he or a she?)
  11. Bro. I have a SWEET little Wife at home who would give you the shirt off her back and she harbors no bitterness toward anyone, even to people who have wronged her. But let someone mess with one of her children or grandchildren and I can assuredly promise you that she'll be like a "she bear robbed of her whelps": know what I'm saying?
  12. Yes, that mentality breeds an "us and them" relationship instead of brotherly love and unity. It's not Biblical. The closest thing I know of that would even come close would be "withdraw thy foot from thy neighbor's house lest he be wearied of thee....." which is another thing entirely.
