Hey Sis! Well, we really are close in age! I'm so happy to hear that! I understand not being exactly sure at what point you were saved. It was a process - a waking up to realization? - for me. I was a late-bloomer also! Yep, we made it, sis!!

Thanks! And same to you - since you consider yourself a newb. Are you a brother or a sister?

Yes, we are all DIFFERENT parts - but like a body, unless it is diseased, all the parts work TOGETHER for the good of the whole. Jesus Christ is the HEAD or the BRAIN that every other part must be plugged into in order to correctly function. I love that analogy! (1 Cor. 12)

Why would a discussion veer off into threats and name calling, if one is truly being led by the Spirit of God? Sounds more like a person being subjective, in analyzing the intent of the exhorter or prophet.

Aloha Jassy, biblereader, greenbear, Bondservant40 and all those who have joined the AV1611 Forums recently,

Just to keep the "record" straight:

I am the "Crusty Old Curmudgeon" here. Born - June 1940; Saved October 1958; and a King James Bible believer - 1968.

Married 48 years; 7 Children; 17 grandchildren; and 3 great-grandchildren. Brother Tim is practically "a kid" next to yours truly. {It won't be long, if the Lord is willing, or unless He "translates" us out of this corrupt world, that I will reach the allotted "three score and ten". "It seems like only yesterday" }

Psalms 33:4 For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.

Yes, and my mama taught me to respect my elders. [even when they are losin' it. ] When I was a kid, there was a buddy in the neighborhood whose centenarian great-grandma sat in her rocker right in the middle of the living room. Every time we kids went through the room, she would take a swing at us with her cane. I think of her every once in a while when George gets on to me.

Truthfully, I highly respect George's wisdom.
