  1. Repairs

    Our pump/well is about 31 years old and I think this is the third pressure switch at least.. Ours has been used to water our horses, cattle, sheep and garden over the years, plus the crazy thing gets waterlogged too often and I have to drain the tank. When it's waterlogged, the switch is tripping constantly. We have another well now, too, which is strictly used for the sheep pastures but, this one still gets used alot.
  2. Repairs

    Last weekend, the controller on our well pump went out. The capacitor had melted down. I went to town, bought another, and installed it: quick fix. But yesterday morning, the points (contacts) on the pump's pressure switch burned out on one side so there were no baths until I got home from work with a new unit. I changed it out after dark with my sweetie holding the flashlight. The parts on a farm's well do take a beating. Surprised this one lasted as long as it did.
  3. 3D Printing

    Well, the printer(parts) came in, and my Grandson and I began assembling it at the kitchen table. I finished it up, wired it, and loaded the control software on my laptop but it would not communicate with the machine. Seems the software was configured to load the driver(a separate program) into Windows 7 only; Why I have no idea. So I had to download a copy of the driver from a website and install it manually. The trick was in corresponding with the folks in China, who only check their email late at night.......from our perspective.......and through a lot of not-so-good English and most of the instructions they sent in Chinese characters, I finally obtained the right driver. It's working fine now. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDe1jx4CeBE
  4. Question for Pastor Markle

    Thanks Brother Markle, I know the manuscript below is from the 14th Century; but it does seem to me that, in this particular usage, the "man" became "ordeyned" by his own actions. With us, as to temptacioun, which peyne335Highte concupiscence./ And this concupiscence, 336whan it is wrongfully disposed 336Or ordeyned in man, it maketh hym coveite,336By coveitise of flessh, flesshly synne, by sighte336Of his eyen as to erthely thynges, and eek336Coveitise of hynesse by pride of herte./337Now, as for to speken of the firste coveitise,337That is concupiscence, after the lawe of oureFrom "The Canturbury Tales" by Geoffrey Chaucer, circa late 14th Century
  5. Question for Pastor Markle

    One more thing, Bro. Markle. Where can I find documentation showing that this verb can be used in middle voice?
  6. Question for Pastor Markle

    Thanks for all your help!
  7. Question for Pastor Markle

    I agree with you; I already believe they weren't "ordained" by anyone but themselves. I'm just trying to nail this thing down once and for all.
  8. Question for Pastor Markle

    In the following phrases, there is no "enactor": they simply "were"......... The bees swarmed; and as many as were attracted to honeysuckle approached the blossoms..... and as many as were attached to the puppies played with them. and as many as were devoted to their parents honored them. and as many as were addicted to chocolate ate some. Could it be that "were", as used here, is a "being verb"? And since no "enactor" is named in the verse, is possible that in this particular case this phrase "were ordained" is in the "stative" voice?
  9. Question for Pastor Markle

    Thanks Bro. Markle. If the verb is in the perfect passive, and indicates that the action was enacted by another, how can you come to the conclusion that they were "ordained" by themselves?
  10. Question for Pastor Markle

    Bro Markle In what "voice" is the word "ordained" as used here? Thanks Acts 13:48 "And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed."
  11. "Repent of Your Sins" False gospel

    Nobody killed Christ. John 10:17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. 18No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
  12. Was Simon the Sorcerer saved?

    You never ask anyone to pray for you? I do. Sometimes, when I feel pretty low, and don't feel like I could get a prayer through, I think (thought bubble)......"maybe my brother here is closer to God than I am, and can get a prayer through for me" sort of like this...... .....Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Philippians 2:3 and so........ 13Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. 14Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: 15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. 16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. The brother was of a humble spirit, and instead of getting all haughty and prideful about it, he showed the fear of God (The beginning of wisdom the Book says) and he simply asked them to pray. So I still believe I'll meet old Brother Simon up there. :)

    Perish is also used for simply "dying".
  14. Was Simon the Sorcerer saved?

    Invicta. The Bible says that old Brother Simon "believed". Have you ever sinned or been "overtaken in a fault"? I have. He was rebuked, bro, and instead of rebelling, he repented in fear and asked for prayer. Sounds like a brother in Christ to me.

    The Bible says that he "believed". All babies have to grow up.
