  1. Whats for Supper...

    Ham, mashed potatoes, homemade biscuits, gravy and probably some vegetable I wont eat. Big dinner celebrating my twin daughters' 18th birthday.
  2. WHY???

    I'm sitting right now in my office as the principal of a Christian school. Outside the window of my office is the gym, and I can hear the student on break. They are playing, laughing, running and being children, as children should. On my right hip, covered up by a jacket, is a Kimber Warrior .45acp. On my left hip is a spare mag. At any time during the week there may be in the building as many as three of us with handguns on our person. We are a school with a total of 47 students. These handguns are tucked away behind suit coats or jackets or sweaters, depending on the individual's clothing style. They are never shown, flashed or discussed in front of the students, but the students, at least the older students, are all aware of their presence. Many of them know me from church, where I am head of security, and of course my 16 year old son is a student here as well. I wonder how many of these students of mine had the thought flash through their mind as they watch the news unfold about the new school shooting in Florida, "Not in my school, we have Mr. Noel"? I watch as the news tells us of the heroic football coach there in Florida who gave his life shielding his charges, those who were placed in his care, those he undoubtedly loved, just as I love mine. And I ask myself, what if this good, brave man had possessed a weapon tucked behind his waste band? Just a little .38 revolver even? Something. Anything. What if someone had been allowed to be prepared to fight physical evil with physical means? We have sown the wind in this country, and now we are going to reap the whirlwind. Our schools have told the students there is no God, and thus no consequences, no eternal soul, no higher authority. We have fed them a steady diet of humanism, violent movies, games and "music" and all manner of Satanic influences. We have denigrated the Bible, parental authority, the police, the military, the flag, the anthem and our founding fathers. And then we wonder when these monsters start coming out of the woodwork. The schools will have to start physically, violently defending themselves from the very hell that they have so foolishly and gleefully created, and the ONLY defense from a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun. They will not, of course, do this. I ask "why", but in truth, I already know the answers.
  3. Hunting yummy things

    If I was there by myself, I would video the shot, then grab that one frame from the video. However, according to the date on the picture, there would have been limited tech in 1991. So, I'm stumped too.
  4. Very glad to hear you are well, Allen. If there is anything we can do ...
  5. The beauty of creation

    We took a bunch of archaeologists and their camp into the mountains here on the Peninsula. This mountain bowl is pretty high up, and affords more spectacular views of the beautiful state
  6. Hunting yummy things

    Bear is one of my favorite game meats, IF it is black bear and taken during the right time of the year. And cleaned proper. I shot a grizzly once, (it was one of those sudden, surprise meetings that happen at times in the bush and I was forced to act) but it had been eating fish and turned out to be completely inedible. I wouldn't eat anyone's bear jerky, even if I knew them really well. Bear is related to pig, and can carry the same diseases, including trichinosis, and must be thoroughly cooked. That's why you never see commercial pork jerky at the store. I know some guys that do it, but I draw the line there.
  7. Hunting yummy things

    I've hunted deer, caribou, moose, grizzly, black bear and wild hog. Hoping to get in a good elk hunt this fall, and a hunting trip to Africa sometime before I die. I love it all.
  8. How would you reconcile this?

    If I burn down my house, it is destroyed. Yet it still exists. It is not habitable, not in it's former condition, but it sill exists. If I build another house in front of the old one, there is a new house. The old house is forgotten, remembered no more. I live in the new one now. Old house. Burned house. New house. But there's always a house. Anyhow, that's the simple way I would reconcile these two concepts.
  9. The beauty of creation

    Oh, I do love a good carbou backstrap!
  10. The beauty of creation

    I love to hunt, and I would be thrilled at the chance to hunt in Africa. Especially cape buffalo. But unlike a lot of hunters, I could never hunt zebra. As a horseman, it just does not appeal to me at all. It wouldn't seem right. I snapped this picture in South Africa, somewhere closer to the Botswana border.
  11. was Jesus the wrong name?

    Matthew 1:21. 'Nuff said. He's just a man, my young brother. As we all are. Don't let the circus going on around you distract or disturb you. Stay the course.
  12. How would you reconcile this?

    Omega, I'm not going to lie and say that I understood perfectly everything you just said. But I will say that I appreciate the respectful, courteous way you said it, and that you were clearly not correcting the English with the Greek. We don't get enough of that these days with doctrinal discussions, and it's refreshing. Thank you.
  13. Superbowl Church Services - I'm NOT a fan

    I don't care anything about it at the best of times, so if they were to invade my church with it, I fear I would have to ... misbehave. The kneeling during the anthem took something that was simply uninteresting to me and turned it into an anathema.

    Alan, you mentioned the full picture of the lion in my avatar ...
  15. Is the KJVO "movement" dying?

    I do believe that the KJO "movement" is dying, but I'm OK with that. The KJV was around centuries before there was ever a "movement", and will be here long after the movement is over. A movement is spearheaded by men following men. And what men lead other men into, they can lead them out of. I suspect that when we get to heaven, God's opinion of the shadow cast by some of the IFB "greats" will not be quite as high as their own opinion of themselves. John the Baptist said "He must increase, but I must decrease". I've watched these men do nothing but increase for decades, until they crashed one-by-one, ruining their testimonies, as well as the testimony of their "movement". Some 100 -odd years of Icarus flying too close too the sun on wings held together by the wax of personality. It melted. Now we're falling from the sky. We have spent decades sending our best and brightest to these centralized "institutions of higher learning" established and run by egomaniacs and carnal showmen, and failed to do our duty as a local church and train up our own, as commanded by II Timothy 2:2. So we now have a full 2 generations of "pastors" in this country who are the ignorant, carnal product of our own lazy, irresponsibility. The answer? The few real, godly, veteran pastors that are left must start taking their own young preachers under their own wing, and lead them at home by example in weeping, working, loving, studying, preaching, praying and living right. Pastoring is about nights on our knees, not neckties around our necks. It's about working hard on sermons, not waxing eloquent on social ills. It's sacrifice, not salaries. Humility instead of haughtiness. Building faith, not getting fat. We call ourselves "Christian". "Followers of Christ". Well, Christ was poor, humble, loving and forgiving while still preaching hard truth. He was hard working and invested in his disciples on a 24-hour-a-day, personal, sacrificial basis. We, the IFB "movement" left following Christ and began following men who named Christ, but followed themselves. I'm 50 years old. I was born to an IFB preacher, and raised in it my whole life. 3 of my uncles were IFB preachers. My dad graduated under DR Tom Malone at Northwestern in 1972. I was ordained in 1998 as an IFB preacher, and have preached in IFB churches across the US and in a number of foreign countries. I am heartsick at the condition of the church today as a whole. We have to stop doing what got us in this mess in the first place, and start accepting our responsibility to replace ourselves, (Matthew 28:18-20, II Timothy 2:2 etc.), while making sure daily we are even worth replacing.
