Christforums

.... an orthodox (true and correct when contrasted with Liberal theology) Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian Protestant community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism.

Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Cars and wildlife

Recommended Posts

One of the things that as annoyed me for a long time, is the number of pelicans that run over wildlife and drive off not checking if the animal is dead. Just the other day I had to put down a roo that was suffering terribly with a broken spine and legs. She lifted her head when I pulled up in the dark, and I couldn't believe some bloke left her like that.

Always carry something to put down an animal, these are God's creatures and don't deserve to be left in agonising pain.

Hey mate (trying to use your terms here) I am not sure what a "pelicans" are, but I am guessing it means a dumb jerk? Right? I live out in a rural area where stupid idiot people dump off pets they loved as babies, but when all grown up they can't deal with. We get these pets now turned wild, attacking our chickens, cats, and so forth. That means I have to destroy these wild dogs. I hate to kill animals, it makes me sick inside to end the lives of these dogs. If that's anything like you feel I fully understand how you feel.

Where I live people drive like ding songs. It could be in the middle of a thunder storm and people still speed down the road. I even wittenessed a fatal car accident right in front of my house, not to mention the other accidents on the same road. We have deer here, even when driving the speed limit they're hard to see running out of the woods to cross the road. People don't do anything when they hit one, they just leave it to rot on the side of the road.

We have lots of deer here as well. They like to feed on the grass next to the highway, where the grass in tender and green most of the year. At night we drive 45 mph so we have time to avoid hitting these deer. They can do thousands of dollars damage, even been know to kill drives in accidents.

I don't know what these people are thinking, someone needs to sit them on a stump and tell them the story, because they are doing a lot of damage out there.

In Australia we have bull bars on our vehicles, so the animals come off second best usually.

A few trucks have them here. On my 2017 RAM 1500, I do not have them, reason is they do not allow the air bags to go off in an accident. In all my 57 years of driving I have never hit a deer, only 2 dogs. My bride (of almost 49 years) did hit a deer, that hit our 2005 Jeep Liberty, and walked away, did $2,000.00 of damage. But that all we have ever hit. For the cost and loss of the air bag protection I really don't think its worth it. Now just watch and see now that I have said this we will hit a darn deer. Oh I hope not!

William here in Gods country, (Missouri) if you hit a deer you can keep it. Now if your vehicle is unable to be driven that's a problem. But you have to notify the Highway Troopers to get permission. If you find a road kill and its still good (I do not know how you'd tell) you call the Troopers and ask to take it. I think the bladder and internal guts might be a mess and hardly worth it. However deer meat is very good and one of the better meats that's healthy to eat.

 

I do not hunt, maybe that's why we have deer around our four acres. Mainly does except when the rut comes, then we have a couple of bucks hanging about. This year we had a ten pointer staying in front of our dinning room window, and in where we park our truck.

Wouldn't the snow preserve them till spring? You could harvest a great deal in that case.

I think animals can detect people who love Jesus. But not shooting them would also help.
