I appreciate the manner at which we are conversing. Thank you for going about this kindly. It's clear you understand exactly what my point is.
Why do I work so hard to provide for my family? Because it is right and proper to do so. Otherwise I would be worse than an unbeliever. And it gives me satisfaction when I lay my head on my pillow at night knowing it was a hard days work.
But until Babylon falls, I will have to use paper. Seems silly.
But soon all who dwell on the earth won't be able to buy or sell without the mark. What then?
It will be those with this mindset that won't take it. Complete reliance on the Lord. As it should be. Whether death or famine.
*breaking news* This just in from the "mini farm"...
Just this morning, an eyewitness reported fresh piles of dirt caused by an uptick in Gopher activity. After closer inspection, the eyewitness stuck a garden hose Down the Gopher hole in an attempt to flush out the the perpetrator or perpetrators. After a short time the perpetrator was apprehended and subsequently terminated.
Sadness was felt for the terminated party.
Recent reports indicate an unusual amount of activity in the area. Crops are being threatened.
The names and places have not been changed seeing that they are innocent.
This has been breaking news brought to you by mini farm USA.
Brothers and sister. Just something I felt the need to say. Call it encouragement.
John. All is ok. Thanks bro.
Michael. Your encouragement was spot on. I will consider this when the opportunity arises.
Dorcas. Malachi..3:16 one of my favorites. Hope you are well sister. Our female goat will be giving birth any day now. I will update you on the "mini farm" when there is news to bring. Maybe SA can put that news story up on the board?
May I take SA news finders to task for a moment. Is there nothing else happening in the news that we have to almost daily read about every time "Sally and Barbara " or "Rick and Sam" got there feelings hurt in regards to their fictitious wedding? or every time Franklin Graham makes a comment?
We should be informed about the advancement of evil on the world stage... but, Surely there is more...
Besides, we have to read the same rehashed comments over and over.
I had to drive a lot today. I turned on a.m. radio and came to a Catholic station. On it was a psychologist talking a lot. He brought up the fact that some Christians go to a big church and worship God with bands and fellowship that way. And he said," that's all fine and good if you want to worship God that way... but... we(catholics) have so much more tools to use, like the Eucharist,confession, etc.
It's interesting that he grouped "other" "Christians" as those who go to seeker sensitive mega type churches. Engaging in emotionalism.
Also... other tools? The finished work on the cross wasn't enough for this man. He has other tools at his disposal?
