You may have heard the phrase Beyond The Pale? This originates from the time when England ruled Calais and there was a huge fence, The Pale, which surrounded the English ruled area. Those who lived on the other side were "Beyond the Pale," The Pale went right through a church with an entrance on each side for those living in those parts. The worshipers were also separated by the Pale inside the church. There is now a new Pale around the port of Calais, a double fence with barbed wire on top, which now extends for quite a long way along each side of the Autoroute leading to the port. Because of this, the migrants have changed their target to the Channel Tunnel. The BBC who were filming in the Area at the time said 2.000 migrants had tried to storm the tunnel two nights ago and another 1,500 tried again last night. Many managed to get to the UK, however a number have died trying. Last night one was killed after being hit by a truck, another recently died on top of a train, it seems he was electrocuted by the overhead power lines. Others have been hit by trains. All this "migrant activity" as they call it, has caused major problems in our county. The M20 Motorway, the main highway to Dover Port and the Channel Tunnel, has been closed except for trucks. This has caused much disruption on the lesser roads. People not being able to get to work, guests not being able to get to weddings, businesses having to close. A couple of days ago the travel in the area was further disrupted when a train between Ashford and Canterbury was derailed after hitting some cows that had strayed onto the line. Perhaps we should take Calais back again.
I perceived how that it was impossible to establish the lay people in any truth except the Scripture were plainly laid before their eyes in their mother tongue. William Tyndale No complicated grammar needed. The scriptures are plain to those who read them, the plouhgboy as well as the king of England
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. Why did Jesus speak in parables so they shouldn't believe and be converted?
Many years ago, I had a Canon A3 printer. I also had a HP camera, only 2 mp and they said it was suitable to enlarge to A4. My printer would print a four sheet and a nine sheet poster. You have to stick the sheets together but they had cutting marks. I took some photos some of my grandchildren and scenes and over printed them with bible texts using Corel Draw. I printed them as a 4 sheet A3 posters which makes them A1 and the quality was reasonable for normal viewing distances for that size poster. I think most printers will do some sort of poster printing and also banner printing if you look in the settings.
I am not sure what you mean by the "logical conclusions" Most anti Calvinists make up their own ideas of what Calvinists believe. As I say I don't follow Calvin. I read the scripture and follow that. The scripture says We are predestined, We were chosen by God before the foundation of the world, That no one can come to Christ unless the father draws him. That we didn't choose Christ, he chose us. We also read "look to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth" and other similar scriptures. How do we reconcile that? We don't we just believe it. We read that God wants everyone to be saved, but Jesus spoke in Parables so that the Jews would not believe and be saved. How do we reconcile that we don't, both are in God's word. The trouble is many people think they are wiser than God. They take what they believe from one extreme or the other and rejet the other scriptures. We have responsibility to believe the gospel, but God has sovereignty.
Luke 2: 37 ¶ Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
I see. However if Hitler had won in Europe, America would have been next. Most of Latin America would probably have supported Hitler. Most of them stayed out of it till Hitler was dead then they declared war on Germany. Nothing like being on the winning side, even if a bit late. Spain and Portugal did the same. So did the USSR with Japan.
Today I did tartiflette, a French cheese and potato bake, I defrosted our freezer and noticed I had a Tartiflette cheese which has been in the freezer for over two years, so I thought I had better use it. Following the instructions on the packet (a first for me) I boiled (I actually steamed) 1 Kg (2.2lbs) potatoes, peeled and sliced. Packet says boil them first and peel and slice them after. Then brown them each side in a little oil. Place in a baking tray and add lardons. Cut the cheese in two horizontally and place on the potatoes crust side down. Bake in an oven at 210C, thermostat 7 for 30 minutes or so till the cheese is melted and brown. Recipe says serve with salad. That is the recipe, but I found it a bit dry and here is how usually do it. Slice or chop the potatoes and steam or boil them. I the meantime slice an onion and soften it in a pan with oil. Put them in a bowl with the potatoes and ad two or three tablespoons of cream and some lardons (I use smoked Lardons.) I use any soft cheese, Camembert, Coulomiers, soft goats cheese etc. I usually add some other grated cheese, Tartiflette is a soft French cheese of 500 grammes. Lardons are small pieces of bacon. I usually use smoked lardons. If you cannot get them in your store you can use bacon cut into small pieces.
