#theology

Here's a fun one...

Is today's general "church", while beautifully covered in the words of Jesus, any different than the Pharisaic church?  If so, how?  If no, why?

US Specific as I undestand it:  Taxing the online businesses...

NO!  No, no, no, no, no, no... and again I say... no!

I couldn't give a flyin' flip about fair to the ground business argument.  The US citizen is taxed enough.  The end result is to tax PEOPLE more.  Not tax businesses as prices will just adjust.  Tax people MORE!  NO.  Shut up with finding ways to get more money from everyone!

You are an AWFUL government for even uttering "let's tax more" right now.  Shame on you.  You, as individuals in the government that are behind this, should be ashamed of your representation as human beings.

GET the government's spending correct.  Take your policies and agendas and get them in check, get them to make sense, get them as good or better than any corporation who has to fight in the market/competition, and then come to me thatyou're... more »

SHUT IT.  You are awful, wasteful, complacent, and, ergo, heartless.

Government is wrong not b/c it needs funds to do what our society dictates... but b/c it does most of it in the worst possible way and then demands that we pay more and more and more to compensate for its failures.  Stop it.  Stop asking for ANY money until you get your house in order.

Shame on you.

Why does exertion of the mind expend the body?  This is a real question (not one where I ask, you answer, and then I tell you how it really is).  :-D  I don't get it.  I know it's true... feel it frequently... but why does it work that way?

Thank you SO much to all that have shown me such kindness.

#DoYouWantToHaveMeInYourCircle  

My apologies to all that have not yet understood my life choices or basic life ideology thus far.  I have been far too shy in such in some instances.  I am a Christian.  I love my Lord.  Yes, it's true that some would debate that based on life choices I make currently (some drinking, smoking, some very inappropriate indiscretions that I will freely admit were wrong and chosen in my brokenness).  But never doubt, I'd surely choose Him above all, know my eternal indebtedness to Him, and have a heart (insomuch as my failing heart can discern) after Him and to best bless those in my life as I can determine that He sees fit.

Jesus Reigns.  We all only have true hope in Him.  All else fails in due time.  

I hope you're blessed today and if you're not, please let me know how I can, in Him, change that.  ;-)

I'm looking for an air compressor

So, I'm not some super skilled auto/labor guy.  I will use one tool at a time... pretty conservatively and paced.

For example, the fastest I might use up the air is to hit all of the lug nuts on a tire at one time.  

What's a good air compressor (on the cheaper side but still letting me get the job done without pause (on the above noted realistic conditions)) that I can buy in Baton Rouge, LA locally?

Does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations?  Why do you like the product you're suggesting?

I look forward to you helping me do my life better.  :-D

Jennifer Connelly... THAT's where I know her from.

I know I've seen this lady in many a movie... but I've always felt like I really liked her some time ago... in something else.  Like I'd seen her before.

Watching Hulk tonight on AMC and reading their notes through the movie... Rocketeer!  That's it!  That's the very first time I ever saw this actress and just loved her!

Know & Go

Some people argue that the book of James doesn't really get the message of grace portrayed by nearly all the rest of the New Testament.  I would, of course, disagree.  First, all of scripture is inspired by the Holy Spirit and James is no less accurate as that same Holy Spirit testified of truth through him as He did through any other part of the Bible.  Second, in that, I think James was spot on on a point that is little else testified to.

Believing is one thing.  As he rightly noted, even the Devil himself believed in God... as he'd seen Him and His truth face to face.  

We, also, can believe in theory and it not matter at all.  We can believe all day long and not let it matter at all in our submission to the way and heart of the Lord that we know to be true.

"_Know & Go_", as I see it, epitomizes the heart of James' message.  If you know His truth AND it matters to you, you cannot not go and act on it.  An act of love that demands that you serve, that you love, that you make a difference somewhere in this world that we share life and pain in.

"_Know & Go_" is how I want to live.  It is how I see my Lord's expectation of how I live.  I'd love to hear how you... encapsulate your own walk with Him in just a very small set of words.___

If every rose has its thorn, you should probably find another retailer.  

If every dog has its day, it’s going to be a very long time before any man does the same and we better start having a LOT more alternative lunches to get through this faster.

If life is like a box of chocolates, who is making those sour chocolates and why on earth are they still in business?

If life’s a dance you learn as you go, does Gangnam Style count?

If the early bird gets the worm, do they also get ignored by the rest of the birds b/c they haven’t had enough sleep and they’re cranky little twits?

If it’s true that when you snooze, you lose… is it also true that when you sleep, you reap?

If nice guys finish last, who’s left to take out the trash?

If winning isn’t everything, is it nothing?

So... how do YOU handle criticism?  Meaning both valid and invalid.  If the latter, when do you draw the line and just say stupid is stupid is stupid, call it out, and walk away.  If the former, do you really consider it or do you blow up first?  Just curious where folks stand here that hear me.  Thanks for any insight you have in any stance.

Robin Hoodism

So, I've been thinking on this recently.  It seems there's a theme of Robin Hoodism going around that we should take from the rich and give to the poor.  Which, is strange for me.  As I don't like what's going on but I've always loved that movie (or the multiple implementations of it).  

And it donned on me the difference.  Robin Hood was about taking from the "corrupt" that purposefully held down the poor to continue in their own prosperity.  Today's "taking from the rich to give to the poor" is not the same.  Instead, folks that perfectly legally, often innovatively earn mucho dollars and find great success, rich folks are told that they cannot keep what they've very rightly earned as equal citizens of the country because other folks who do not have the passion to do more want more from their government.

To be clear, before all the rants start, I DO agree that there are some that fundamentally "need" help.  And I'm so cool with us helping those folks.  I think we can find some often better ways to do that, but in and of itself, I don't have a problem with programs that help those folks.  But there are many able-bodied folks that just don't work harder because... "their heart isn't in it" and they're doing okay with what they do and letting the government supplement the rest.  

The drive to make and make more has gone from many in this great country and, in and of itself, whatever.  Do what you do.  But don't then go to the rest of folks that are busting their tails to do more and force them to supplement your beach-bum work ethic.

Robin Hood = Good.
Today's implementation of Take from the rich and give to the poor = Bad.

Just a thought.  Love you guys!___

Clearly, guns killing people wasn't clearly defined as a part of murder.  If folks that murdered with these tools knew as much, they would NEVER have done it.  The REAL problem is that the crime of murder has not been clearly defined.  Can we change some more laws to make things better?  I hope so.  That's the point of contention here and I think we should DEMAND our government handles it!  

You are welcome for this very valid point.  Goodnight!

On an entirely different note (not food), I feel socially complete for the moment.  Someone I have had a real reverence for as a person and as a lover of God has counted me as a true friend.  Can life get any better than that?  Can it?  Really?

Hey Windows tech junkies!  I need help!

I'd like to create a Windows key combo that automatically pastes a portion of text anytime I hit that key combo.  Same text, all the time.  Is this doable?  If so, please advise!

Thanks ahead of time for any tips on this!

It is utterly mind-blowing to me how mood-altering music can be.  What amazing power our Lord has handed to us in allowing us to create and play with such a power as this.

Star Trek and Grey's Anatomy

These are two shows I've watched... a LOT... of.  On the latter, I have not watched the most recent season.  Only that which is available on NetFlix.  But I'm curious about all of you.  I'm curious about any of you that have watched any significant amount of either of these.  And here are my eight questions on the matter:

1)  If you've watched a significant amount of Star Trek, which character (old series, new series, movies alone, whatever) do you most resonate with and why?

2)  Still regarding Star Trek and the same standard of watching, who are you most attracted to and why?

3)  If you've watched a significant amount of Grey's Anatomy, which character do you most resonate with and why?

So my boy is 4 as of this last September.  He's been MORE than potty trained for quite some time.  He's in Pre-K.  But in the last couple of weeks, he's started crapping in his pants again.  He seems to totally refuse using the toilet for #2.  Doesn't seem to have any aversion to the bathroom.  Don't know any variance to routine.  Don't know what to do to stop this.  Thoughts?

Here's a fun one...

Is today's general "church", while beautifully covered in the words of Jesus, any different than the Pharisaic church?  If so, how?  If no, why?

To be clear, I miss all of you here on G+.  I've been SO swamped in the last few months with a new... thing... to bring into good and proper order.  And I'm overwhelmed.  It will be done.  And I will be back to sharing and growing with all of you.

But it has not come this far without sacrifice... including getting nearly ANY moment to stop, think, have something worthwhile to share here, or to hear from so many of you.  

But it burns me up... more than most anything... for passive... talkers to say they want something... and aren't willing to fight for what they want/step up and just do it.  IF it's important to you, then you see it in your own actions.  IF it's not, then you see that too.

It's the VERY basic Christian principle of seeing things in the works of those who say they believe.  IF it's in your heart, your works will showit.

Things like the movie about "He's just not that into you" apply the very same way.  IF someone wants something bad enough, they go for it.  Otherwise, it's just words and apparently other things are their real priorities.  

I'm so very tired of words stopping at... words.  Are you?
