Re: Survival of the Fittest

Another great food chain photo - this time a eagle, fox and rabbit. I suppose the fox came to his senses in time? http://a57.foxnews.com/images.foxnews.com/content/fox-news/science/2018/05/22/eagle-snatches-fox-holding-rabbit-in-mouth-in-dramatic-images/_jcr_content/par/featured_image/media-0.img.jp...

Re: Pope: GOD made people gay

Mel: If you believe we are governed by the law of the Old Testament you’re entitled to that opinion but that’s not Christianity. Uh, Mel - this teaching is carried over into the New Testament, particularly by Paul, in Romans. This is not a dietary or ceremonial law that was not for all time, that w...

Re: Pope: GOD made people gay

I don’t know if being gay is wrong. But that isn't really the question, is it? Having struggles against whatever sins we are attracted and tempted to commit - temptation is not sin (unless one causes it). But GIVING IN to certain things God says are sin - behavior and actions that God calls wrong -...

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

OK, OK, ENOUGH! This disagreement has now devolved into semantics of tone, whatever sarcasms, he said / he said - these are now considerably off subject and are now a personal disagreement between you guys - at this point, please take it private! As there is absolutely no need to play to the people ...

So says the guy with the cheap blonde wig and denture-wearing avatar - quite a sense of beauty he has! :pound:

Actually, apparently, 48 is the new 78! :wave:

Re: Jac3510

My last thing I gave up with the fructose corn syrup is sugar-free coffee creamer. I LOVE coffee - 2/3 pot a day - but I did switch to decaf! But no way can I drink it black. I've tried stevia and almond milk - which is okay, but it's not creamy (at all). So, I'm experimenting. Tried coconut milk - ...

Re: Pope: GOD made people gay

The main problem with the CC is that it encourages beliefs that one needs a priest or saints between themselves and God. Christian pastors and teachers - yes, we need them. Priests to facilitate our confessions or relationship with God - Jesus is our intercessor and advocate between God and man. The...

Re: Jac3510

Getting off of processed stuff and most sugar has been critical to managing my allergies and my ADD - HUGE difference. If I eat bad, I feel bad - get fuzzy headed, lethargic. Gotta have good exercise habits, too! You really have to carefully read labels, because sugar and fructose corn syrup, sodium...

Bav, all I'm saying is let's please all dial it back a bit - no need to attack the person.

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Bav: "You have all kinds of time to make accusations/assertions, yet conveniently no time to back up your words." Bav, you need to cool it! Rick has defended his position. It's just that you both have different opinions on this issue. And a whole lot of Scripturally knowledgeable Christians would s...

Bav: I'm actually not sure if being properly seat-belted in would've been better for this person. It seems to me that having been perfectly ejected probably saved him injuries.
I was thinking that as well!

Re: Pope: GOD made people gay

Rick: We just don't know. I agree it's unverified. But IF he said it, it's a terrible thing and direction for the church. Again, he's made statements in this direction before. And so if he doesn't personally and clearly denounce it - it's now worldwide news - I would think it's a fairly safe bet th...

A VERY Close Call!

It does not get any closer than this!

It's like something out of a roadrunner cartoon!
