    I generally hunt for good burger joints. While I have never hunted, we DO raise and kill our own goats and rabbits and chickens.

    This was taken on the trip from Reno to Las Vegas. I love these mountains, they are beautiful examples of how the flood layered the land and moved it all over, pushed up and over as the waters asswaged.
    Another sight on the trip to Vegas: me posing at the notorious Clown Motel in Tonopah. One day when I have the time I will stop and spend a night.

    Ukulelemike got a reaction from weary warrior in Is the KJVO "movement" dying?   
    I just preached last Sunday, (yesterday) on the subject of contending for the faith, and much of what is being discussed here goes right along with it.
    Churches are dying, spiritually, because many churches don't contend for the faith. The reason we are told to contend, is because men creep in unawares and begin to change things, turning grace into lasciviousness, which can refer to sexual or spiritual promiscuity-and there is no shortage of either in many churches. The people miss when a wolf enters, wearing the garb of the sheep, and begin to gain trust, then change things. Soon the good IFB, KJV-preaching, God-loving, truth-preaching hymn-singing churches have a plethora of versions, rock and roll "worship" and are bringing any old heretic in who claims Christ, to teach and preach.
    Contending must be an active, continual thing, with the eye always firmly on the Lord and His perfect word. A church needs to stop depending on the pastor to hold it together, and start demanding he preach truth and stay the course, or toss him and bring in someone who will.
    Godly preachers need to contend by training up young men and women who will be the next generation, men who will be the next leaders, the next preacher, not toss them off to universities and other churches to be lost from them. No, raise them up in truth and then, when the preacher can no longer do the job, you already know what the next pastor will teach, because they have been raised up and fed on the best home-grown food. It is a constant, continual to fight, against men and devils, to maintain the truth and purity of a local church. And we teach those coming up to fight and contend, as well, so they will teach the next after them, ad so on, til Christ returns.

    Ukulelemike got a reaction from BabeinChrist in Have you heard this statement?   
    Yes I teach that "Lifestyle Evangelism" is simply making evangelism your lifestyle-showing Christ in all things. That includes active evangelism, but also showing the light of Jesus in your life-otherwise, if you try to actively evangelize, but don't make Christ your life, the active rarely succeeds because people see you for the hypocrite you are, or that you appear to be.

    Ukulelemike got a reaction from Pastor Scott Markle in Is the KJVO "movement" dying?   
    Interesting, but flawed overall.
      The Bible itself, (In KJV), declares often that it is preserved, that the words are pure, and that they are the very words of God, breathed by the Holy Ghost to the writers.  So, when one considers that the stated intent of the authors of the revised Greek text, Westcott and Hort, was to produce a Bible never before seen in Heaven or Earth, right there, the KJVO proponents are vindicated. Their sloppy workmanship, based on clearly corrupt texts, one of which may have even been a complete forgery from the 19th century, (Sinaiticus), and their desire to  bring into play certain Catholic doctrines, to which they were partial, makes their work extremely suspect.
    As well, the antiquity of the TR, behind the KJV New testament, and the Masoretic, behind the KJV Old testament, speaks volumes to it's divine preservation. So no, there is AMPLE evidence of the great superiority of the King James over the new corrupt versions.
    Will it be diminished as time passes? Well, possibly, but only because of the increased heresies and compromise within 'churches' the world over, and so-called IFB's who seem to want nothing to do with what it is to BE and IFB.

    Ukulelemike got a reaction from BabeinChrist in Evolution Evangelism   
    Concerning the portion that I have bolded, the notion of evolution is abhorrent to the beauty of God's creation. It is, in fact, exactly the opposite of God's creation, in that, according to the word of God, and not just Genesis, man, through sin, brought death into the world, while evolution teaches that death brought man into the world.  Theistic evolution of any kind would represent the work of a retarded, ignorant god who had to try again and again, using mass death over billions of years to bring about the central aspect of His creation: Man. Simple scholarship shows that Genesis was written with the intent to be taken as history, not allegory, and those who don't see it as such, only do so because they have an axe to against it.
    BIll Nye, by the way, is an idiot who can't see past his own imagined aptitude enough to see how stupid it is to declare that believing in creation makes you unable to make an effective contribution to modern scientific advancement, all the while ignoring people like Sir Isaac Newton, Galileo, or even the modern scientist Raymond Damadian, inventor of the MRI machine and believer in a literal six-day creation.  As for Hamm, I have my own issues about him, but in the area of the creation, he is correct: he just isn't a good debater-I watched their first debate and he ignored a slew of arguments against evolution. I would like to see him debate Kent Hovind on the subject, though while the offer has been made by Hovind, Nye is not interested.

    Ukulelemike got a reaction from BabeinChrist in Do you like C.I.Scofield's Study Bible notes?   
    I remember when many considered Scofield to be the epitome of an IFB Bible. I owned one, carried it for years, but I was never one for much reading the margin notes, and in fact, was told to take some of them with a grain of salt. In other words, some are great, others are poor. I understand them to ALL be man's writings. But when the time came that I actually read some, starting right at the beginning, when, in fact, there are far more of his notes than actual scripture, (something that should always be a warning to the reader), I discovered his trying to shoehorn in the gap, and I had enough of it.
    I have been using, since about 2000, a study Bible called the New Open Bible. As terrible as it sounds, (it IS a KJV, by the way), it actually is perhaps one of the best study bibles I have seen. It doesn't push much opinion like the Scofield, rather I like how it gives things like weights, measures and currency values, has a section on Biblical archeological finds that prove out the historicity of the Bible, a good topical index in the front, and such. These things are very helpful in helping make things, well, as much as the word is misused today, relevant, in that, I can explain how much a mite is, or 100 furlongs, or a span, or a talent of gold, or how much a firkin contains. Brings it home for people to grasp better. Sadly, the New Open Bible is not in print anymore for the KJV, though it is for other versions, and the Open Bible, which has much less in it, is also available in KJV. Don't know why they don't print it any more-came and went pretty quickly.

    I greatly dislike his teachings on the gap theory. Not sure what else I may dislike as I have not used it since I found that.
