    Join me on Death Row

    I've ready that there are around 150,000 people that die every day (almost 2 people per second) in the world. I think about how each and every one of us are on "Death Row." Sooner or later our day and time will come. Jonathan Edwards stated that "the arrows of death fly unseen in noon-day; the sharpest sight can't discern them." Indeed, we have no authority as to the day of our death (Ecclesiastes 8:8). We spend our lives as a shadow (Ecclesiastes 6:12), a vapor (James 4:14) and a mere breath (Psalm 144:4). Once departed we are as water spilled on the ground which can not be gathered up again (2 Samuel 14:14). It is not gloom and doom for the believer. Today, Christ told the penitent thief, he would be with Him in Paradise (Luke 23:43). At the moment of death Jesus received the spirit of Stephen (Acts 7:59; cf. Ecclesiastes 12:7). Death is the doorway into the presence of God. It will be glorious beyond description.
  3. What do you think of the fact that the Lord Jesus is referred to as "mighty God" (Isaiah 9:6) and so is YHWH (Isaiah 10:21)?
  4. https://www.insider.foxnews.com/2018/10/18/gosnell-movie-suppressed-hollywood-media-michelle-malkin-says link doesn't seem to be working, but if you go to fox news and search for Michelle Malkin and this movie it is quite interesting.
  5. What's to stop members of MS-13 from simply joining their ranks and then claim that they are political refugees as well?
  6. This whole thing just sickens me. If you want to come then come to this country legally. Our American forefathers were willing to die (many of them did) for this nation. Why can't others do the same? Give me liberty or give me death. You would not believe what someone I know is going through in order to get his wife into the USA. Tons of paperwork, tons of stress, tons of forms, misinformation, confusion. Did I mention money as well? On and on it goes. He joked me with the other day saying he should just get her to Mexico, fake her name, teach her some Spanish and just cross the border and bam she's in! But do it the normal LEGAL way? It takes forever. Fill out this form. Don't forget this, don't forget to sign that. One number is missing, one letter is missing. This fee oh and that fee. It's maddening! Sad things is, she speaks excellent English and is well educated. Insufficient funds they were told. They slightly lacked a certain amount, so guess what happened to her........ Denied!

    Are you skilled in debate?

    v. 23 records that he told them about whom they worship in "ignorance." I wonder what they thought when they heard that?

    I admire Apollos. Acts 18:28 He refuted the Jews with powerful arguments in public debate. Using the Scriptures, he explained to them that Jesus was the Messiah. (New Living Translation)
  9. I know that not all are called to be married, but many are. I think it is a good idea to begin praying for and about the future spouse of your son and/or daughter by asking God to protect him/her and to be a God-fearing and God-honoring spouse to your child. This doesn't have to begin in their teens or early twenties but even many years before that.
  10. I don't know how long ago it started but some do not even call us "pro-life" but refer to us as "anti-choice." So I in turn refer to them as either "anti-life" or "pro-death." To look at it another way I think the abolitionists who opposed slavery would also be referred to as "anti-choice."

    Were they drunk or merry (Genesis 43:34)?

    Hey William, I assumed the portions were food, and I am not sure if Benjamin was able to eat all that was put before him. Can you imagine going out with 5 buddies (male friends) and saying I will eat 5 times as much as anyone else? I used to eat quite a bit but not that much. This is just something to kick around. Whether they were drunk or not would not do anything to detract at all from the serious warning found in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 that drunkards will not inherit the kingdom of God. If anyone is unsaved and gets drunk ought to realize that the answer and comfort that Christ gives is not what they will find at the end of the bottle. If a Christian does this (cf. 1 Corinthians 11:21) then they are not living as they ought and that Christ has so much better for them.
  12. https://www.biblegateway.com/verse/en/Genesis 43:34 Some versions read that Joseph and his brothers were "merry" (or something similar), while others teach they were "drunk." John Gill (and John Calvin as well as others) maintain they drank a plentiful amount but denied they were drunk, while the NET Bible reads they were "drunk." Genesis 43:34 - He took portions... - Verse-by-Verse Commentary WWW.STUDYLIGHT.ORG Genesis 43:34 - He took portions to them from his own table, but Benjamin's portion was five times as much as any of... - Verse-by-Verse Commentary https://net.bible.org#!bible/Genesis+43:26 The Hebrew shakar does mean to be drunk and emethustheesan in the LXX means the same. Now if they were drunk it doesn't mean we are to do the same. They were sinners just as all people (besides Jesus) are.

    Master Keys to Holiness

    1. I really like the analogy above. 2. Sad. But the hideousness of incest can take place. I am concerned that this too will one day be legalized as marriage in the USA. If it is based on consenting adults then I am not sure how it can be stopped.
  14. I checked "Works Righteousness" because of Roman Catholicism.
  15. I'm not sure if it is crazy that someone might get assassinated. Remember, Congressman Steve Scalise and what took place on June 14, 2017? Furthermore, I just heard about this: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/calls-for-civility-after-vandalism-violent-clashes-outside-gop-headquarters-in-new-york
