Yes, it's awesome, awesomely watered down! Rick Warren is spot on trying to appease the world while trying to be a Christian leader.

May the one become dusty and the other set his feet firmly on the narrow path, not caring for worldly acceptance.

Amen!!! From your lips to God's ear!!

#356693 What's Your Temp Today?

Posted by Miss Linda on 08 January 2014 - 02:35 PM

My Wife just texted me and said the plecostomus died :( The koi are a cold water fish so they do fine but I have noticed they hug the bottom of the pond in cold weather.

Oh no!!! I'm so sorry to hear that!! Hopefully you can get a new one when things warm up a bit.

It's going to warm up above freezing, thankfully. But then I believe it's supposed to nose dive again. That polar vortex break off is wreaking havoc in a lot of places this year.

Bless your heart!! Stay warm up there!!

#356669 Would You Take It?

Posted by Miss Linda on 08 January 2014 - 01:14 PM

hmm...if you can keep your equipment and perhaps do a private job once in a while, all the while you are working for this other employer, it sounds pretty good to me. At our age (I'm already at 53), it's not common for that kind of offer to come along. I'm sure you'll be able to find God's will in the matter. Praying for you.

As usual, LuAnne offers sage advice. I was thinking the same thing with respect to age--offers get a bit more scarce as time goes by. It may be that this is just where God needs you to be right now, not just for your own benefit but for the benefit of others (like Joseph in Pharaoh's court) . I will be praying for you.

I thought the same thing, Salyan! This must be a "guy thing". :)

Standing Firm, you shouldn't antagonize UkuleleMike.  You wouldn't like him when he's angry.   :lol:

#356501 Would All New People On Ob Please Introduce...

Posted by Miss Linda on 07 January 2014 - 10:42 PM

Hello!  Just thought I would drop in and introduce myself here.  I joined Online Baptist a few years ago, but have not been active for a couple of years.  I just re-joined recently.  


God bless you all and have a blessed 2014!  And for the readers in the United States, I hope you are all staying warm up in those northern States!  

#355716 Way Of Life - Dressing Down To Go To Church: An Audience With The King Of Kings

Posted by Miss Linda on 03 January 2014 - 01:00 PM

Pretty much all mu suits are from thrift stores-the difficult thing is, being a man of, shall we say, heroic proportions, (heh) it can be difficult to find suits in my size. Us man-sized men tend to keep our stuff until its unwearable anymore. Usually if I find some suits in my size, I figure someone died.


I read this just after taking a sip of coffee (with lots of cream and sugar) and, well UkuleleMike, you owe me a new keyboard.  :spewing:

#355708 Aspirations For 2014

Posted by Miss Linda on 03 January 2014 - 11:54 AM

Salyan, how EXCITING that you had your first guest in your new guest room!!!  I'll bet that's something you have wanted to do for a long time.  I'm looking forward to moving, and already poking around flea markets and garage sales for some furniture I can refurbish for the new place.  I was at a fabric store yesterday looking at some of their clearance upholstery fabric.  I'm hoping to possibly recover a couple of furniture items and give them a new lease on life. 


HappyChristian, your plans sound wonderful, too.  It must be such a delight to help disciple your daughter-in-law, and your Creation Club sounds fantastic!!!  I'll bet other people here would love to know more about your club and the resources you find. 


Blessings to you both during this new year!

#355346 A Note Of Re-Introduction

Posted by Miss Linda on 01 January 2014 - 03:05 AM

After a rather extended absence, I visited this web site earlier today and was so happy to see many names I recognized.  Out of curiosity, I looked back through this forum and found my original introductory post in July 2010.  My how time flies!


The description I gave in that original post still applies:  "I reside in north Texas, work as a legal secretary, never married, and enjoy a quiet life with my two naughty little cats." 


I look forward to getting reacquainted with old friends and making new friends.


Have a blessed new year!




#355345 Blessed New Year

Posted by Miss Linda on 01 January 2014 - 02:41 AM

I stayed up to welcome the new year with prayer.  There are so many blessings for which to give thanks, but also so many concerns for which to pray.  The world seems to be turning more bold in its sinfulness and thinking only of evil day and night. 


While reading Psalms, I came across a lovely verse for this new year:  "Thou crownest the year with Thy goodness" (Psalm 65:11). 


May God crown 2014 with His goodness for all of you!!


Perhaps this will be the year when Christ returns again!

#276589 Conservatism versus hyper-conservatism?

Posted by Miss Linda on 09 August 2011 - 09:04 AM

< . . . snip . . . >

There is nothing "arbitrary" about the command to dress modestly, to avoid the appearance of evil, to give up anything for the sake of Christ, to deny ourselves for Christ and for the sake of being a good witness to the world and for the sake of those who look at us.

So many of the things you promote as being a matter of liberty are the very things Muslims, Mormons and millions of others point to as reasons Christianity can't be real, is immoral, ungodly and not something for them. When they look at most Christians they see the world, not Christ and this is to our shame and it clearly shows the lack of true followers of Christ among the millions who profess to be Christians.

Your comment here touched on an issue that I encounter periodically. People will occasionally ask me whether I am Muslim or Mormon or Orthodox Jewish because I wear long skirts, long sleeves, and blouses with necklines above the collarbone. Most recently, I was dining at a restaurant with a small group of ladies from church and we were asked by the waiter whether we were Mormons. When we said no he immediately asked whether we were Orthodox Jews. We replied no again and one of the ladies said we are Christians. He looked genuinely surprised. He actually said, "I wouldn't have guessed that, you are all dressed so modestly and act so quiet and polite." *sigh*

I've been asked similar questions in the office where I work. When I first started working at my current job people asked me whether I was a Mormon, a Muslim or an Orthodox Jew because of my modest dress and my eschewing secular entertainment. The last thing they thought was that I might be a Christian. It genuinely saddens me to think that non-Christian belief systems such as Muslims, Mormons and Jews are easily identifiable by their "set apart" lifestyle and modest dress but as Brother John has pointed out, Christians are not usually identified in this way.

It does seem to me that Christians sometimes try to blend in as much as possible, not to be too different, too set apart. There is a danger in blurring those lines, not just for ourselves but also for those who make judgments on our faith based on their observation of our conduct. I do not think we should be asking how little we can do to follow Christ, but how much.

#276153 Discussion Topic - Women in Sports?

Posted by Miss Linda on 01 August 2011 - 09:51 AM

I don't see how female athletics inspire female virtue. In I Peter 3, Paul says that God highly values the cultivation of a "meek and quiet" spirit in godly women. The idea behind competitive sports is to beat the other team, while running around in front of other people in immodest garb. This is the antithesis of modest womanhood. How does participation in sports inspire meekness, modesty, placing others before yourself?
