  1. A simple request

    Sorry...didn't mean to give the wrong impression. I'm glad it wasn't copper...I've never messed with it before.
  2. The beauty of creation

    Not the best picture in the world...so sorry it's blurry, but it was taken with my cell phone... Still, it was such a special little blessing to be greeted by my little friend here when I got to work today. He was working his way through the wires of our gate when I pulled up. Just wish he would have been a little more patient and posed better for me.
  3. A simple request

    Here are the before and after pictures of the water heater. Before, it was hard-piped...and looked NASTY!!! The only way to remove the water heater was to cut the pipes. I decided to make it a little easier on whoever might buy our home one day...or...make it easier on me if we end up staying here for some reason. Before... After...
  4. Revived laptop

    It's beyond me David...sorry. Regarding Samba, as I said, I have no experience with it. However, let's try this...open your Terminal, and enter the following command sudo system-config-samba You'll have to enter your password after that, but let's see if that will open it for you.
  5. A simple request

    I can't remember the name of the ingredient that is added to natural gas here, but it gives the natural gas an odor; otherwise, people couldn't smell a leak. Is nothing added there to give the gas an odor?
  6. Revived laptop

    If I remember correctly, the laptop is operating well again? Does anything else (like a mouse) work in the USB port? Just wondering if perhaps the USB port is still affected by the spill. Other than that, I'm not too sure. I haven't tried booting Linux on our Windows 8 computer. You may know more about it than me, but I seem to remember reading that you have to turn "Secure Boot" off to be able to boot from the USB or CD/DVD drive. It's just a guess, but perhaps that's why those options are grayed out? In other words, I wonder if they aren't accessible unless Secure Boot is turned off. There is something called Samba that people use to network between Linux and Windows. Unfortunately, I have no experience with it...from what I've read, you will need to install samba and system-config-samba sudo apt-get install samba system-config-samba That second package (system-config-samba) should give you a GUI to use.
  7. Saved in 3 tenses?

    Okay, I just installed the TR in my Bible program... 1 Corinthians 15:2, the word for saved is σωζεσθε 1 Corinthians 1:18, the word for saved is σωζομενοις First, thanks to Bro. Markle for pointing out the situation with Strong's. I wasn't aware of that. Second, I've learned a lesson from this, and though I originally tried to tread carefully, I realize that I need to tread even more carefully from this point forward. I will bow out of this conversation from here on out. Thank you Bro. Markle for addressing Roselove's concerns.
  8. A simple request

    I think that would cause a small turmoil here in the US for now...however, I think people (here in America) are being prepped to accept such regulations too. I see less and less people who are willing (or able) to do things themselves, and that will make it easier for the government to lay down restrictions and laws here such as you describe. Americans are becoming lazy, and they (the general population) will seemingly accept almost anything to make their lives easier...even if it infringes on their freedom...as long as it doesn't interfere with their smart phone usage. I'll try and post my "before" and "after" pictures later...
  9. Saved in 3 tenses?

    My apparent "combativeness" wasn't necessarily against the man himself, the article itself, or the ideas of the article; rather, it was against the Bible that he uses, and therefore; its underlying Greek text. As far as the general message underlying the article...I had no problem with that. I agree with being saved in "three tenses". I apologize for letting my rancor show in regards to a Bible version other than the King James.

  11. Saved in 3 tenses?

    Thanks Bro. Markle...I was kind of hoping you might chime in on this. :) I was suspicious that it may have been the case as you described; however, since I haven't studied Greek, I wasn't about to try to "explain" something that I knew nothing about. LOL! When I "type" a Greek word, I don't actually type it out. I just highlight it with my mouse cursor in my Bible program, then I copy and paste it here (or in my examples above...copy and paste the word from those websites). I hope you're doing well friend.
  12. Saved in 3 tenses?

    Well, all that I can go by is what I use. I'm no Greek scholar. Here's the word in my Bible program...as you can see, it's the same "number", but look at the Greek word in comparison to what you've posted... G4982 σώζω sozo (sō'-zō) v. to save, i.e. deliver or protect. {literally or figuratively} [from a primary sos (contraction for obsolete saos, “safe”)] KJV: heal, preserve, save (self), do well, be (make) whole The author's Greek word from 1 Corinthians 15:2 - σωζεσθε The author's Greek word from 1 Corinthians 1:18 - σωζομενοις The Greek word from the Textus Receptus link that you provided of 1 Corinthians 1:18 - σωζομενοις (#4982) The screenshot's Greek word from 1 Corinthians 1:18 - σωζομενοις (#4982) The Greek word in my program from both 1 Corinthians 15:2 and 1 Corinthians 1:18 - σώζω (#4982) All that I can say is... The author has two different Greek words from the same single Greek word and "number"; which is 4982. The author, the screenshot, and the link provided show different Greek words than what mine shows. As I said, I'm no Greek scholar, and I just reference Greek occasionally. I'm wondering why the author has two different Greek words for the same Greek word...well, I think I know why, but I'll stop there. I can't explain it to you any more than what I've shown Roselove.
  13. A simple request

    Wow! Really? Things haven't reached that point here in the US yet...
  14. Saved in 3 tenses?

    Well, I didn't want to say anything at first, but the person (and article) to whom you are referring to is using a different Bible and Greek text than the King James Version and the Greek text it was translated from. I quickly looked up the word in Greek, and the word is a different Greek word than what that gentleman quoted. He even admits that other translations translate the word differently. You have to be very careful of whom you read Roselove.
