    I hope everyone watched the Memorial Day Concert on PBS this evening and appreciate the sacrifices our veterans paid for our freedoms.

    Would love to - but I will be working. Have seen the PBS in the past and have always enjoyed it.

    Much better performers and singers than in years past and the tributes were outstanding.

    The concert brought many memories back of my days in the 97th Signal in Germany ... almost froze to death in the winter of 1961 near the Czech boarder. It was probably the coldest temperatures I have ever experienced ... didn't have a thermometer so I don't know just how cold it was. The ground was harder than an anvil.

    You other vets on the BB, what memories would you like to share?

    Of course not. My personal beliefs are solid. I posted those 8 points as information, not as personal beliefs. There was confusion and misunderstanding that needed to be cleared up so a rational discussion could take place ... and of course some went crazy. I would think that anyone would know that there are posts that are for information only.

    Why would anyone say that about one who preaches heresy?

    Hard to imagine one whose solidly orthodox beliefs concerning our Lord would use the adjectives "great" and "fortunate" to describe one's experiences when auditing blasphemy, let alone "on several occasions."

    Admins, wake up.

    You are mixing apples and oranges. The sermons I have heard her preach were solid theologically ... Christ as savior.

    Would you welcome any sinner into your church to hear the gospel of Christ?

    Isn't the message of salvation through Christ to be preached to everyone, even in church?

    Didn't Christ say to love your enemy?

    Didn't Christ say to go the extra mile?

    Doesn't the last judgement show Christ asking about feeding the hungry? visiting the sick, etc., etc.

    How many times did Christ say we are to forgive another?

    What does the story of the Good Samaritan teach us?

    What does the story of the woman at the well teach us?

    What does the story of the woman taken in adultery teach us?

    Who did Christ say should be excluded from worship?

    Does any who worship with you have to look like you, agree with you on all things?

    Do you welcome any person regardless of race or cultural origin into your church?

    The list could go on and on.

    The heresy is in exclusion, not inclusion. We are to include and preach salvation through Christ to all.

    Baloney. She is affiliated with the United Church of Christ. This is in their mission statementā€¦from her Church's siteā€¦.


    We believe that the persistent search for God produces an authentic relationship with God, engendering love, strengthening faith, dissolving guilt, and giving life purpose and direction.

    Here's your chance to publicly denounce her.

    And now back to the OP

    During a trip to Berlin - on both sides of the Wall, I did bring back a piece of the Berlin Wall. Seeing that, I realized why we were in Europe.

    During the visit, we took a tour of the museum which honored the hundreds who died while attempting to escape communism.

    That belief was strengthen when I pulled (real) guard duty at the Iron Curtain.

    Regardless of your dislike for fruit cocktail, and whoever "her" is, do you mean that Paul's command in I Corinthians 5, to expel the particularly sinful man from their fellowship, was unsound theologically; and thus much NT scripture is worthless or evil?

    Yes, including one with a loaded gun at his side. Is that the case with you?

    Yep, even in church. How about even in school?

    Yes, and since He never sinned, driving out the crooked moneychangers with a whip and knocking over their tables with animals does not screw that up.

    Yeah. I wonder if He was against the metric system.

    No; maybe the next to last, or next to next last. But it doesn't come before the great white throne judgment.

    I haven't counted, but probably even the synoptic gospels do not include the exact number. Or perhaps you meant that equation that comes to 490. That's a lot of scorekeeping, though; maybe he just meant: be a perpetual sucker.

    Go from Jerusalem to Jericho by helicopter.

    Something deep; that's for sure. Perhaps to look somebody up on PeopleFinder before you talk to them.

    That God's refusal to answer affirmatively David's prayer-- that his and Bathsheba's first child live-- casts doubt on God's goodness, forgiveness, and consistency.

    Satan? hmm, maybe not.

    No, but they have to be human and agree on some things.

    Yep.

    Indeed, it could.

    We surely have to wonder how evil Paul and Barnabas were to shake the dust off their feet when that town refused their message, and they refused to preach to them again.
