  1. Backups! If I drop my Bible into a deep puddle of water then chances are I might loose some of the notes I've written... I've even seen Bibles lost and stolen. I still have the Bible I purchased in 1984 - glued together several times. An app can crash but restore your backup and you have your app and notes good as new! On the other hand... software can change and software companies go out of business so then you can't even open your app. Thus, I export/backup my Bible app notes as plain text files. (I am not advocating a Bible app over a printed Bible... Just presenting all aspects)
  2. I love to be alone and I am most comfortable when alone. I am naturally a "loner." Witnessing, hospital visits, etc. are out of my "comfort zone" but I find that I derive great satisfaction from these things. So while I have to "kick myself" to get going on those endeavors I am highly blessed by having done them.
  3. Hi Celina... Are you attending a good church there in the Philippines?
  4. The following is taken from "Things Hard to be Understood" by David Cloud (he quotes Robert Sargent) - Presented as information only.... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2 KINGS 24:8 – “Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem three months. And his mother’s name was Nehushta, the daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.” 2 CHRONICLES 36:9 – “Jehoiachin was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months and ten days in Jerusalem: and he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD.” There is no contradiction between these accounts, as they refer to different aspects of Jehoiachin’s reign. “It is important to remember that with the biblical method of reckoning the beginning of the reign of a king may be given from his anointing or his accession—or both. Following the deportation of his father, Jehoiachin legally became king over Judah when he was 8 years old (2 Chronicles 36:9), but his mother ruled for him as queen (Jeremiah 13:18) until he was 18 (2 Kings 24:8). Three months later both king and queen mother were deported (2 Kings 24:12)” (Robert Sargent).
  5. They go through astronaut training school to learn how to ignore the itch.... I am always amazed how space walking astronauts can work for hours without scratching their ear, rubbing their eye, itching their nose, etc. Why do people play the lottery but if their broker invested their money with odds like that the investor would fire their broker! Why does "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing?
  6. Conditions prior to the fall are so foreign to us I don't think we can even begin to understand it. For example, I don't think Adam and Even needed to exercise to "keep fit." Their bodies would stay fit and stay "perfect." In an un-fallen world things are perfect. We just are not able to think that way to envision what it was like. In short... we fail to fully appreciate exactly what happened when sin came to mankind.
  7. Wow.. do you have to wear boxing gloves 24/7 too so you can't poke someone in eye?
  8. And that is the reason I said in capitol letters "MAY" - Silence itself cannot prove anything can it?
  9. Something simple to think about.... If something is known to be true and it is accepted fact then it usually doesn't get written about (and thus there is no "controversy" untill later when some apostate starts pushing false doctrine. So silence on ANY subject MAY simply mean that it was generally accepted as truth.
  10. The link is a cruftless link that doesn't have a corresponding page. A cruftless link is one that has the directory name and ends in a backslash. A specific page is not given. But with a cruftless link you must have a "default" page setup which is usually index.html or index.php. I tried typing both and neither one work. ie: http://www.onlinebaptist.com/church_directory/index.html and http://www.onlinebaptist.com/church_directory/index.php So the link does not have a corresponding home page in that directory.
  11. Ha! I think you need to come in out of your garden for a while! I'd put a laughing smiley here but I know how you feel about them... :)
  12. I used to be certified to teach NRA "Refuse to Be a Victim"... but it is not current. Haven't taught the course for a couple of years...
  13. Found the post if anyone is interested (the RSS link doesn't work).... https://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/blog/?p=22392
  14. Not all auto's have a hammer. My Taurus .45 and 9mm have a striker pin. (But I know what you meant.) No "hammer" on my LCP 380.
  15. I totally respect that Brother Stafford. However, isn't the world also using "printed" matter for filth and such? In other words... I do not have Facebook on my devices. I do not have Instagram, etc etc. What I have on my device is up to me... not anyone else. Some of my bibles are hardback editions. So should I not purchase a hardback bible because of all the worldly hardback books? An iPad is an iPad just like a book is a book. It is the content that matters is it not?
