Mat 12:40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Want to explain how you get 3 days AND 3 nights (even if not 12 hours each) from Friday afternoon to Sunday sunrise?
Mat 19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. Mar 10:9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
It doesn't matter who defines marriage or what they define it as --- If God doesn't join them, it's NOT marriage. The state's definition, approval or license doesn't make them married or not married. A preacher, priest, rabbi, justice of the peace or judge can "pronounce" anything he wants (as often as he wants) and if GOD doesn't join then together -- they're NOT married. Has nothing to do with the U.S. Constitution.
As to the U.S. Constitution and "separation". It was never intended to keep the church from having a voice in politics, it was designed to keep the government out of "religious" affairs (side note, the government didn't insert themselves [illegally] into marriage [licenses] until the 1800's).
As has been stated already, we don't know all the ins and outs (and you may or may not, also). It's going to vary church to church -- some may be decided by "elders", some by the pastor, some by pastor and deacons, some by congregation, etc. We had a missionary that a family in the church has been giving support to (through the church) for 25 years. This is an excellent missionary in Papua New Guinea. They were in need of some medical supplies. We made a box (size determined by shipping regulations and shipping cost) and made a list of needed items (with recommended quantities). We then asked members to pray and donate what they believed the Lord dealt with them about. A week later we shipped it. (There were also 2 packages of candy inclosed!)
Haha, ever worked with cattle? My Musician4God and I are on opposite poles here, he'd rather work with horses and I prefer cattle. Granted, cattle are not as intelligent as horses and also are stubborn but they don't have NEAR the ornery temperament of an obstinate horse!
I'm not sure, but he can always look and try. I'm also seeing to the right of the multiquote (+) is "Quote" the "Edit" and I see a lock spot there. That one however is marked "Modera tor " instead of the earlier referenced one marked "Modera tion ".
My wife uses button mushrooms in mushroom gravy or grilled with onions and bell pepper strips for steak, Baby Portobellos can be used for stuffed mushrooms. Shiitakes can be used in stir fry or hot and sour soup. Most mushrooms can be sliced and used in vegetable soup, salad or homemade pizza.
I don't cook, I just know they're good eaten in those ways.
Not necessarily low. The stomach is in both upper and middle abdominal ares, but primarily upper. The small intestine is MUCH longer than the large. As a result, when leaving the pylorus it extends into the low abdominal region. The large intestine, however, comes back up and then traverses the body at about the same level as your elbows (when hanging naturally at your sides), and can even be behind the lower lobes of the lungs, before descending down to the anus. Basically, most everything below elbow level is intestinal tract, at elbow level, and within an inch to inch and a half above, is stomach, bile gland, gall bladder and possible large intestine.
When one utilizes the word 'one' in one's writing, one must be cautious lest one's penchant for 'one' become excessive or, worse yet, decline into one's exaltation of one's literary prowess which really is not as keen as one may perceive, notwithstanding, there is a proper "time and place" for one's inclination for 'one' and yet can be as obnoxious in its misdirected use as can an excess of commas, which should be avoided, or the common, but still incorrect, writing of run-on sentences.
I would say, "I couldn't help it", but I'd be lying.
