  1. Some of us will spend at least the first while unlearning what we were absolutely sure about here.
  2. Was that the band's name ? Sounds a bit like Woodstock. ๐Ÿ˜
  3. Makes one wonder what was going on in the groves and on the alters to get God so upset. On a side note, if there is one thing that I have learned about the scriptures from biblical scholars, it is that whoever the title says wrote the book, obviously did not and it is unclear who did. ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  4. I just clicked on it and it came up. The article says they look for clothing that can easily be pulled or cut off. I only clicked on the first part ,not the genius part.
  5. I looked up about how victims are chosen. Here is just one of several articles. How a woman dresses is one factor but not for the reason I thought. How Do Rapists Choose Their Victims? | Geniusbeauty Some of the suggestions of how to protect yourself are problematic from my knowledge of self defense.
  6. I suspect that in a congregation there are multiple cell phones capable of recording any sermon that is " off the wall " and then posting it to the world. That said, if I were in the congregation during this moronic sermon I would hope that I would stand and shout , " Are you nuts ? ! "
  7. One swallow does not a summer make. Show me a dozen more pastors saying the same nonsense and I will agree with your statement, but the reason this is a headline is that it is so unusual. It is my understanding that rape is a crime of opportunity and is a power thing not a sex thing.
  8. When I see a group of Hell's Angels riding down the street, I can see how "skins of blackness " can be both literal and metaphorical. Mind you some of them are actually just big soft teddy bears ,right?
  9. One would hope that the Church is heavily invested in toilet paper manufacturing. ๐Ÿค‘
  10. How many beavers had to die to get all this Castor oil ?๐Ÿฅด ( yes , I know it is made from a bean ) It raises red flags to me when a substance is said to help a dozen different ailments. Many years ago there was an oil made from snakes IIRC...
  11. I must remind myself that even seeing an angel does not preclude having one's testimony severely challenged .
  12. There are backup generators for this. They can run on gasoline, natural gas or diesel. I had a chuckle when I watched video of a guy in a Tesla on the side of the road who stopped another car to see if they had any gasoline. Seems he had a small generator in his trunk which powered his batteries. Redneck hybrid LOL.
  13. What if... one of the couple had an extramarital affair , could he be disciplined for adultery ?
  14. Yes this. Back in the ' olden days ' I went to a Catholic mass and aside from a lovely service , there was the added positive of being able to skip leg day at the gym in the following session. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ
  15. Eternal reality and mortal reality can be different. We know of all kinds of oddities born into mortality. There are people with two heads, some with three or four legs. some without arms or legs. All these are externally visible, but it seems reasonable that there are anomalous features in the brain/mind/DNA . My question is, are all these also found in the eternal spirit ?
  16. I watched a youtube short on this, be aware that triggering is likely: congressional hearing on transwomen in prisons - Search Videos (bing.com)
  17. There are those who misread/misapply doctrine and then there are those who not only dive into the deep end but dig a hole in the bottom of the pool.
  18. The scriptures are very clear as to how to be saved. ( that was sarcasm for the impaired )
  19. If only the Church had some sort of program that might address the situation...๐Ÿ‘ฟ
  20. Would we say that , at least prior to 1830 , Joseph was spiritual but not religious ?
  21. IIRC there has been a significant increase in the number of people who, on a census form, check 'not affiliated ' when asked about religion. I assume that this group of spiritual but not religious would be there.
