  1. Why are Christians voting for Donald Trump?

    Great now I am going to be forced into a vote that is the same as saying "Malaria is better than Ebola".
  2. Free Will an Illusion?

    Probably the LGBT community so they can combat the claim that they weren't born that way but that they chose their lifestyle of their own free will. With no free will, then they are not responsible for being gay because that is just how they are born.
  3. What If Everything Black Was White And White Black?

    My heart was black and Jesus washed it white as snow...that's good enough black to white for me!
  4. She Said Yes!

    Well, if you would like to catch the game we have tickets for Section 221 Row 5 Seats 1 and 2. The seat map states there are still a couple tickets left next to us. If not we could maybe meet for dinner before the game. You probably know the best places to eat near the stadium!
  5. She Said Yes!

    We will be at a Mariners game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday June 25th! Part of our honeymoon trip takes us through Seattle and being a baseball fanatic there is no way I go to Seattle when the Mariners are in town and not see a game. Bro. Garry
  6. Ok, I Admit It...

    Ok, I admit it, I'm glad I have a Pastor who preaches ONLY from that Bible in our own language (KJV)and nothing else written.
  7. Whats for Supper...

    14 oz T-Bone steak, grilled asparagus, grilled mushrooms and onions, baked potato loaded,sweet cornbread made in an iron skillet, and sun tea (a rarity in Oregon in April)! Homemade strawberry cheesecake for dessert.
  8. "Ban The Person Above You" Game

    Ban John for not realizing that some things that are "good" can be "evil" at the same time! Romans 14:20-21 (KJV) 20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence. 21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.
  9. She Said Yes!

    Hello everyone! Sorry I have not been around as much anymore. I am just finishing up two degrees in school and my jobs hours increased on top of that. It is all I can do to get all my homework done each day. After keeping myself strictly celibate for the last 19 years out of personal conviction concerning the circumstances surrounding the dissolution of my last marriage (not open to discussion here, there is already a thread on that topic andyou can probably infer my stance on the topic), I have courted and now proposed to Miss Laurel Ann Carpenter and she has said yes! My previous marriage vows were fulfilled with the death of my last wife due to cancer about 2 years ago freeing me to seek another and I started courting Miss Carpenter in January of last year. Miss Carpenter was a pastors wife until the death of her Baptist churchhusband Pastor Allen Carpenter about 4 years ago. She is a wonderful, godly woman who is very knowledgeable in the Word. We will be wed on June 24, 2016 at a small service at the base of a favorite waterfall in my gorgeous Oregon wilderness. Her son, who is the Pastor at Franklin LakesBaptist Church in New Jersey will be performing the wedding with my pastor and associate pastor in attendance. Please pray for us since she has to move 2,600 miles and make a radical culture adjustment to a small logging community in Oregon. Bro. Garry
  10. "Ban The Person Above You" Game

    Okay, then ban John for seeking signs. Matthew 16:4 (KJV) 4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign;
  11. "Ban The Person Above You" Game

    Ban John for not speaking of the signs of the times instead of the weather. Matthew 16:3 (KJV) 3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
  12. Hammered Dulcimer

    Just so long as when you get good and using your Hammered Dulcimer you don't change Ukulelemike to "Hammeredmike". That name could raise a few eyebrows.
  13. Any Interest in a Forum Bible Study

    I will commit to the reading schedule as well. Will we postpone discussion until the completion of the two weeks of reading and study? Where will the discussion be posted and will the thread be restricted to only those of us who have committed to the study? Bro. Garry
  14. Any Interest in a Forum Bible Study

    Very interested Pastor Markle! Bro. Garry
  15. What Ever Happened To Christmas?

    The biggest problem is you haven't a clue what you are talking about. Maybe a just a small bit of study will show you that Oregon and Israel are almost identical in climate. In fact there are plants like the "Myrtle Tree" that grow wild in only two places on the planet. Oregon and Israel. As far as when the 8th course of 24 courses falls is a matter of common knowledge to anyone who knows Jewish history. A little study outside of your pet hobby horse will do you wonders. Sorry..I didn't expect you to respond outside of "the widows mites" post.
