Re: Age of Consent

Look at 1880. I should have mentioned that.


Ah, the year my grandfather was born!

Re: All prayers needed

Dear Hana, only prayers for your mind and heart to heal - only God can do that. It's all still so very fresh and raw. Just trust in God, and keep in mind, that events here are NOT ultimately about the here and now, but are far more about the next life and the world to come. We do not know what may h...

Re: All prayers needed

Hana, I was just thinking about your and wondered how you have been? What do you possibly see or think now, that was different from months back? You've been through an astonishing and exceptionally difficult experience, while setting before us around the world an incredible example of what love and ...

Re: Trump or Pence?

I don't think Trump has had enough time in office for me to make a decision about him. He's starting to grow on me. :lol: My biggest worry is that if Trump gets the old heave-ho, our CAB might never recover from it. He might lose his mind and become a Democrat or something :shock: And then America ...

Re: Kids and faith

I am constantly blown away by their integrity and thoughtfulness. I never cared if I had kids who were rocket scientists or mathematicians but I didn't want ar*eholes, cos' there's already enough of those :mrgreen: Mel, that's because you must be doing something right - and then God is overseeing t...

My how The Kid opened up a crazy debate with such a "simple" question - with over 2,700 views and 350+ responses!

Re: Kids and faith

As for being politically obsessed, as if WE don't have just the right leaders following just the right plans, of we're doomed and hopeless - think the Apostles had that mindset when they were roaming the Roman Empire's distant outpost of Ancient Palestine? No! God is not limited by empires or politi...

Re: Kids and faith

If you want your kids to have faith, you need to both model it AND provide them with the many amazing evidences for God's existence, for the truth of the Bible, for the historical things of Scripture, of prophecy, from science and history. These things all, collectively and very powerfully, help to ...

Re: How can God know everything and let us have free will?

Just like God knowing doesn't take free will from you either. Free will is an ability to choose between things available, and to be able to act upon all available things within range of one's capabilities, physical, mental, etc. It's NOT an ability to do things one is incapable of, or to have knowl...

Rick: I'd say no then. Let's let the process play itself out. He was voted in. He can't be any worse than Obama, when all is said and done. Holy crap - you'd rather, given, likely, what would likely be a far better president - just see how it plays out because "he can't be any worse than Obama...

Re: Global Warming: Massaging the Data per Desired Results?

Morny: Spencer no more represents climate change science, than I represent Biblical exegesis. Exactly what I thought - you didn''t address the questions, you merely attack someone who disagrees - a person, BTW, who has exemplary credentials as to the matter at hand. The 1st step is to accurately st...

Re: Were the Nephilim and the Sumerian mythical kings somehow related?

Reasonable people who hold a high view of Scripture CAN reasonably disagree on this issue. But what I want to know, what does it change for us if we don't know the truth of how things went down in the days of Noah? If we don't personally know or have it right about the Nephilim, what would be differ...

Re: Well, what about offensive historical public monuments?

Many people on all sides of the aisle absolutely hate those on the other sides. Sensible decisions can be voted on about these symbols. But make no mistake about it, there are people on both sides of the aisle ratcheting up the issue over symbols of the past, to demonize whatever people, trying to m...
