    Yes, we have quite a few so-called "reverends" over here. The Bible word "reverend: is found only one time (Psalm 111:9) and it refers to God. So, if I were a preacher or pastor, just "brother" would be fine,
    ..holy and reverend is his name. Psalm 111:9
    And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul...... Acts 9:17

    ​Absolutely. 3rd most common native tongue but a second language worldwide,

     Invicta, I think all you have to do is include your card info in the PayPal account and choose that when you make your purchases. . At least that's how it works when I pay for stuff on Ebay. Mine is set up to choose either direct debit from my bank account or to use my Discover card.  It should work the same.

    Yes, I buy a lot of stuff from mainland China, Hong Kong and, last month,  some items from the Czech Republic with my Discover Card through Ebay/Paypal. One of the software programs I use in my business is from the UK and I got a nice little bonus from Discover for that one...https://sites.fastspring.com/vectric/instant/aspire

    ​And that is strange because merchants have to pay a transaction or "swipe" fee, and a percentage of  the cost of each purchase to the credit card companies and merchant accounts every time you pay with a card. That is in addition to lease charges for their card scanners, monthly statement fees, and periodic "security update" charges,  I do take credit cards, but I would rather take a check or cash to avoid the fees.

    I keep cash in my wallet, in small denominations, primarily to make change for customers. but I rarely use it for purchases. I use a Discover card for virtually everything from fuel to online purchases and I get a nice bonus back every year just for using it. I pay the balance off every month so there are no interest charges. My Wife pays most of our bills online using the bank/s electronic transfer.  If you think about it, cash is just a worthless piece of paper anyway, supposedly backed up by the gold in the US Treasury. It's no different from paying with a check, again as long as that check has "gold" in your bank account instead of rubber.

    They can have it all; We won't be here.

    Matthew 28:19  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
    Acts 2:1   And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. 6Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 7And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? 8And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? 9Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, 10Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God. 12And they were all amazed,.......
    One Jew that I know of, Benjamin Netanyahu, speaks at least two "tongues"; He speaks fluent English and Hebrew. But, unlike the miracle of the "unlearned" Galileans in Acts 2, Netanyahu had to learn his languages.. As you can see above, the tongues of Acts 2 were real languages: so the babbling of today is fake.
    The answer to your last question is that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are one.... That is beyond my comprehension; but I believe it because it's what the Bible says.  John 10:30 1 John 5:7

    During work hours? I don't like that either.
    Many years ago my wife had a former high school classmate, good friend of hers, whose wife had recently left him. So he came over to my house, one day, while I was at work "crying on her shoulder" so to speak (she told me about it and everything was innocent from her perspective)But  then he came back again. So I confronted this dude and told him I didn't mind him talking to my wife; just not while I wasn't home. That was the last we heard from him.

    ​And the house creeper type with the "form of godliness"  will also let the wife know that her husband is immature, unspiritual and out of step with God, and unfit to make sound decisions.
    God told Abraham, he would give him a son. That promise took a long time. Sarah came up with the idea to give her 'bondwoman' for a wife and Abraham agreed. They had Ishmael . The "son of the bondwoman" teased Isaac and Sarah said to throw them out. THEN and only then did God say "hearken" to Sarah. It's OK to voice an opinion; God didn't make women super intelligent for nothing. But if Abraham had not "hearkened" that first time(when God didn't say to), we wouldn't have Muslim terrorists now. Either way. Abraham had to bear the responsibility, because the final decisions in the home are placed squarely on the husband

     Methinks the "house creepers" with a "form of godliness" are ones who would never preach against anything women do wrong.
  14. heartstrings added a post in a topic: Progressive vs Conservative   

    The business of the "progressives", "democrats", "communists" socialists....is there a difference? They hate mankind, love the animals and the "environment". They want to shove the "gays" down our throats. They want to take away your guns. How could they really care about murders and mass killings, because they see nothing wrong with killing innocent children, the elderly and the "unfit"? Along with eradicating guns they want government-controlled health care imposed so they can gain complete control; they will ultimately control who gets treatment and who doesn't. When they achieve complete domination, they can go after what they hate the most: Christians. Their whole agenda is found in Psalm 2: 1-3 . "Conservatives" need to wake up.

    Yes, I believe "houses", in 2 Timothy 3, speaks of families.  it's speaking of the "sort" that  use "a form" of godliness (godly on the outside; not in their hearts) to draw followers, for whatever motives they may have.
