Actually, this kitty acts more like a dog! He follows me around, comes when I call him and is very vocal!

J. Rawlins says: Chocolate in that cookie? I'll take it!

Me: You deserve it. Most people get stumped by that question even though it has such an easy response.

Cheri says: God doesn't lie and Jesus is the Messiah. This is my belief in faith from scripture.

Me: Your faith if it contradicts God's word is not faith in God. It is faith in yourself & your desire to believe something contrary to God. You have not addressed the issue itself which I pointed out that jesus by means of not being in a direct bilogical father to son connection to King David and King Solomon can therefore not be the Messiah. You probably will not be able to respond as this thread is filling up. But perhaps elsewhere you may try.

OOOH OOOH OOOH, I just remembered that I have a 1611 facsimile and I just found it! It has an 11 page letter 'from the translators to the reader'! It is in VERY small print. But since I'm watching the presidential debate, give me a chance to read it tomorrow morning and I'll post here whether it is in this preamble. OK?

OOPS, this thread is about to hit max. I'll find you on one of the other threads to let you know.

yba says: But where, Shmooz, is Jerusalem mentioned as "the place?"

Me: Scripture does not mention it. As I said, this was given in prophecy to King David.

J. Rawlins says: But then the prosecutor, with his legalistic mindset, simply looking to prosecute fault anywhere he can find it, completely overlooked and failed to address Dr. Myles point:

Me: This is corrrect. Once his credibility was shattered I did not feel the need to refute his words. He already discredited them before I ever came on the scene.

It is not easy. My father was at his wits end when he was called in by my elementary school principal.
I had reacted rather strongly when another student, a friend of mine, brought a swastika armband to school and was taunting a young girl with it.
I had no idea at that age that there was anything called a "Jew" or who or what they were. I did, however, realize that what my friend was doing was wrong. As the teacher, in the room at the time, was doing nothing, I jumped on my friend and whaled on him, giving him two black-eyes and a bloody nose. Actually, it was quite a feat because he could have whooped me any day of the week.

My grandfather taught me well, where my father was unable. Grand-Da ta ught me to throw the first punch if there was a bully. I found it worked better than my gfather's advice,j Always walk away from a fight. My grandfather confirmed this with a caveat....but never run!

Nothing quite like chomping on a bit of birdshot. Have ruined quite a few teeth that way.

(Hey, you should have seen the look on one of our youngster's faces when we told her one did not prepare game birds for the table until the maggots were dropping out of it.)

Thanks, JR. I've had big problems finding it on the Internet and it may not be in my copy since it is only a few decades old.

I did look it up a long time ago and my recollection is it did indeed say ''in accord with Christian doctrine''.

Pure breeds are a little more delicate that mongrels and tend to get ill more often when their food is filled with fillers and colors, etc. Cheaper food can often translate into more expensive vet bills. Just sayin'.

''My grand girls continually ask me questions. At times, too many, lol.''

I'll bet.

Be interesting to be a fly on the wall when that happens.

I was nearly kicked out of Sunday School because I asked too many questions and refused to accept ''authority'' as a suitable answer.

''Yet He came as their king, but from within their hearts and changing them from within, it wasn't His time to be an earthly king at that time. They rejected Him, so Gentiles were able to come to God through Jesus.''

Grrrr!!!

What an opening for Big Shmooz. Hope he handles it skilfully.

Scopes was a well planned out PR exercise! Great for the Dayton economy, but left Tennesseans looking like fools.

yba says: Hey, Old Man, are you around for a while or are you just stopping in as a tease?

Allan: Was here long before the memsaab dragged you out of bed and revived you with your first cup of java.

Will remain only so long as the interest keeps me awake.

In passing, NLP is aimed at changing mindsets. Have had excellent results without ever knowing that the specific problem is. One strategy is the reframe, where the subject is enabled to see the issue from an entirely different angle. Takes only minutes at a session, and often once is enough.

A quick example is bullying. The victim sees this as a weakness in themselves, but when they come to accept that it is the bully who has the problem they can quickly learn to raise their tolerance level and come to cope easily. Don't know how my elder boy does it, but he is a past master. One year, when he was moving up a grade in primary school, the teachers expressed their concern. He is very artistic (a beautiful singing voice included) and the new class was dominated by macho types. Did not take long for him to have them all eating out of his hand. He won scholarships to two private schools and I made sure he went to one (two-year scholarship) where he would thrive rather than the other (four-year), where he would have really copped it. Had a major fight with the ex when money tightened up and she wanted to switch to take advantage of the extra two years. He stayed and it worked out well, dux of the school with a string of subject prizes.

Never forget the day my younger lad came up to me and said one of his sisters had said a rude word to him. In trepidation, I asked him what it was, and the answer was she had said he was stupid. Put-downs like that were banned in our home. Our biggest problem with our volunteer work is dealing with youngsters whose self-confidence had been severely damaged by authority figures, usually parents and/or teachers. Had two lads from separate schools tell me their deputy headmasters had told them they were retards. NLP works wonders in changing their feelings about themselves.
