Nitwit + government grant = amazing discoveries and beneficial knowledge? Not all the ladies like beards, and our ''species'' propagates just fine with or without, Not only that, but some of the most aggressive and "powerful" men have been clean shaven. I'm sure that Adam had a beard though; God put it on us for some reason.
I know a little about it. I run a small business which serves mostly other businesses. I couldn't tell you how many times I have worked like mad, for a much larger company, only to have them hold my money for a month or surprise me with a "net 45 days" policy....So they got to use my property for 45 days for free, usually thousands of dollars worth, after I was diligent enough to produce it and get it to them on time. If it hadn't been for credit cards, I really would have been in a fix.
1 Corinthians16 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. 2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. 3 And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters , them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.
"Ye" and "You" are plural pronouns in the KJB . The congregation was free to approve who received this particular money. It also seems to have been their prerogative in 1 Corinthians 9.
Good question. I think it's because I began posting about my sheep, along with a few scriptures pertaining to them. I suppose it became a habit of sorts so I posted another one about an animal. Since it seems to be ''common knowledge'' that one of the most notable traits of sheep is their stupidity, I thought it would be pertinent to discuss the intelligence of another "biblical" or nearly biblical animal. But here are a few scriptures... Llamas can cross with camels, so they are of the same ''kind''; "species" notwithstanding. A camel would be an unclean animal, according to OT dietary law, and so would llama had it been available in the OT. Lev 11:4 Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel , because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you. My llama, similar to a camel, is a very aloof and unfriendly critter; she would never be a pet. Camels are mentioned 18 times in the story of Eleazar's journey to bring Rebecca to Isaac and I have been told, though I haven't studied it out, that Abraham was a picture of God the Father, Eleazar was a picture of the Holy Spirit, Rebecca was a picture of the Church or Bride of Christ, Isaac as a picture of Christ and the camels were a picture of the grace of God. What say ye?
Being my Dad was a rancher, I've been around and worked with cattle most of my life.. We did have one cow which would nurse herself, So my Dad put a device on her nose which consisted of a ring in the nostrils with a flat piece of metal draped over the nose holding sharp spikes. It was designed for weaning calves. Anyway the cow would jerk her head up sharply, flipping the device upside down, throw one hind leg up and continue to nurse herself. Most cows are indeed pretty dumb but, I guess cows can have "geniuses" just like people do. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10153116854314757&set=vb.35086most of my life6824756&type=2&theater
Proverbs 30 29 There be three things which go well, yea, four are comely in going: 30 A lion which is strongest among beasts, and turneth not away for any; 31 A greyhound; an he goat also; and a king, against whom there is no rising up. Wouldn't you say that this verse is speaking only of the King of Kings when He reigns in the millennium? And that the "rising up" means that no one will even want to TRY? I don't see how the "comeliness" could refer to earthly kings, because I'm pretty sure there are some North Koreans who would love to get the chance. What do you think?
You want to get to the other side of the fence, but there is no gate open, so you pace back and forth looking for an opening that wasn't there the last few moments you checked; maybe it's just short memory? I don't see the sheep doing this. https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/r90/11083889_967646276601506_1155210597377193897_n.jpg?oh=c291ed857d1ed7a102874f15655f68e4&oe=557C28FB&__gda__=1437694152_668bfc9b765979b99ea85cbc0f648970
Is it possible that the feast of the Passover had been so corrupted by man's tradition, that it was like the religious leaders who officiated it; full of dead men's bones? Sort of like communion in a Catholic church, had it become perverted into nothing more than a religious ritual?
Here are the trees "Big Man" is working on now with bark in various stages of damage.. He rams them and rubs some of them, much like a buck deer would do, until the bark/cambium layer is destroyed so the tree's circulation is cut off and it dies. At the far end of the photo is a smaller oak that he backs up and pounds repeatedly. It is shattered with splinters and strings of wood protruding everywhere. I am going to cut down some of the smaller trees and see if I can guard the larger ones with metal or something so he doesn't kill all of his shade. https://scontent-atl.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfa1/v/t1.0-9/r90/11068300_966540906712043_3098407989803110464_n.jpg?oh=1e282bf625886c1647bd0b6927587d86&oe=5579A7C5
