    i have a sister who works for a power company. I'm on the low voltage side of life as a master electrician and electrical contractor. Low voltage as defined by NFPA publication 90 (NEC) -- 600 volt or less.

    Work for an electric company? As in: a generation / distribution company, (i.e. power company- Alabama Power, MidWest Energy, Pacific Power and Light, Synergy, etc) or for an electrical contractor (i.e. Mr Electric, Baracko Electric, Greg Williams Electric, etc?) Your wording made me think contractor, your schedule makes me think power comp. unless you are doing industrial shut downs (utilizing 2 crews on 12hr/7day schedules.) I gather (due to schedule) that you do field work.
  5. Words that give me a nervous jerkdown...

    Yes, because possessive is Mod's, singular is Da Mod and plural is Modz
  6. Words that give me a nervous jerkdown...

    Thank you, now I know what "photobomb" means. Yeah, I know -- I must live under a rock. Before anyone seeks to inform me as to the purpose of dictionaries, I use them for "real" words that I'm unfamiliar with -- but not selfie, photobomb, dork, nerd, etc.
  7. Why King James Only?

    GP does have a legitimate hesitation when it comes to being perceived as "promoting" the Geneva Bible in seeking to "defend" it on this site.My suggestion is to drop any questions that directly require a defense of his Bible and send him a PM or email. If it is agreeable to both parties, continue the discussion via PM or email.

    Chantie, Thank you for returning. Don't think that you are not welcome here, incidentally I don't believe Jim was implying that you aren't. He was merely starting that if you want Biblical truth, go to the Bible not 45 opinions on 64 questions. As to a desire to discuss things "amongst you own kind" without dealing with "strangers in the yard", the owner and administrator of this site (Bro.Matt) created limited access areas so that the general view areas would be open for those who are curious, etc so long as they "behave" (petty much the common courtesy you would exhibit when invited into someone else's home). I am currently at a track meet (I drive a bus for the public school system, among other jobs), my computer isn't booting up, I failed to bring a stylus for my tablet and trying to post is proving quite laborious under my present circumstances. If I can't get my issues resolved before I get home (in about 14 hours), I will continue my response then. Incidentally, most folk around here just abbreviate my screen name to OFP (save your typing fingers some effort).

    Chantie: in further reflection, I realized that I should have asked you a couple of questions first. I did, however, say that I would mention reconciliation and therefore will briefly mention it, that I might keep my word. The Bible declares that we are alienated from God (Eph 4:17-19 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.) What's more, we (mankind as a whole) are the enemies of God (Jas 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.) Now, this may seem rather harsh and possibly a rash statement. In reality it's not. People (if they think there may be a God) tend to form God's actions and reactions after what their values would place Him into.They often assume that some people are wicked enough to deserve Hell and it wouldn't be right for them to ever see a glimpse of Heaven (Hitler, Pol Pot, child molesters) and that most are good enough that God would turn a blind eye to their little indiscretions. We rebel at the idea of God not handling life, this world and us according to our idea of right and just.So, we choose to alienate ourselves from Him when He doesn't do to suit us. There is a reconciliation necessary, provided and available (Col 1:20-22 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight) (2Co 5:17-19 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.) We may continue in this vein at a latter time but for now I have 2 questions that I would like to invite a frank and honest personal answer to: 1) At this time what is your opinion on the Bible? 2) At this time what is your opinion of Jesus of Nazareth, the one commonly referred to as "the Christ"?

    We actually have a couple of things going on here (in the above quoted sections and the related questions) at once. I will respond in more depth after I return for church (leaving in about 45 minutes). Let me dip my toe in the water in this post by stating that one does not become a Christian (according to the Bible) by resolving to live a life in accordance with the Bible or "Christian values" (Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. --- emphasis mine.) Upon my return, I will address the position of alienation from God and the need for reconciliation (and its significance in relation to your stated and implied questions.)

    Just picked up the book on Kendall, will read when I have the chance and get back with you on it. btw: Howdy

    I don't think he was questioning whether there is such a mandate in Scripture. Rather, knowing it is a Biblical mandate, where is the evidence of it being adhered to in our churches (for the most part) today.
  13. Colorado court: Ruling stands that baker can’t cite religion

    Courts ruled (several ears ago) that a senior citizen's discount is allowed but a "ladies night out" discount is not -- one "discrimination" is okay while the other isn't.
  14. Colorado court: Ruling stands that baker can’t cite religion

    So then a black owned Mom and Pop bakery can be forced to bake and decorate a cake for an anniversary meeting of the KKK, a Muslim owned Mom and Pop food store can be forced to order pork and a "????Pop and Pop????" owned print shop can be forced to produce flyers for a Westboro Baptist anti-same sex marriage rally? First: I don't see it happening. Second: They shouldn't be required to do so, anymore than the above mentioned Colorado bakery should be restricted.
