Perhaps we should make "Lets Not Offend" the 11th Commandment!

Dan Phillips responds: "Obama is the triumph of postmodernism. America elected a hollow image, a human projection-screen, prepped and served by our media. They gave arguably the most powerful office in the world to a man with no accomplishments, no preparation, and no qualifications. Worse, they elected a faux-Christian who sat under a viciously racist, marxist ministry for 20 years, who embraces abortion in every form and wants to crush liberty under totalitarian governmental control."

She greeted her friends with a welcome most hearty.
They laughed and they joked and they swam in the sea,
And the party was gay, as a party should be.

"Not everyone is called to be a watchman. However, some are. Do you remember Jeremiah in the Old Testament? God called him to tell the children of Israel the truth. The children of Israel did not want to hear the truth. The people hated Jeremiah. The people devised plans against Jeremiah. Does that make Jeremiah a bad guy because he was telling people what God had said?
Today, like in the past, when a watchman warns what is ahead, the people don’t want to hear it. They want to shoot the watchman or destroy the watchman with their words.
God’s Word should be our standard for truth. Check it out."

This makes construction a breeze. Think about it. You could sit in your lawn chair and build a fence. Just get someone like your wife to hold the fence boards in place while you sit back, relax with a cold glass of iced tea and, when she has the board in the right place, fire away. With the hundred round magazine, you can build the fence with a minimum of reloading.
And, the best part is, after a day of fence building with the new DeWalt Rapid fire nail gun, she probably won't ask you to build or fix anything else ever again.
So much for dreaming; I'll probably get another tie!

Then I hit one. That's all it took; one single, direct hit. One crow dropping like a lead balloon. Once the band of terrorists figured out that I was serious, they vanished.
I'm actually kind of dissappointed. I come home every afternoon, load up and go outside hoping to line one up in my scope. But no, there are none. They haven't been back since the kill.

An Interesting Perspective From Jason Robertson, Pastor of Murrieta Valley Church, Murrieta, CA. Posted on Fide-o.
Blessed with One Worship Service
"About a year ago our church decided that we would no longer have two worship services on Sunday mornings. We made this decision based on our ecclessiology. We knew that having two worship services had caused a division in our church body and had robbed the body from enjoying the gifts and blessings of all of the members. Furthermore, we worship with the Lord’s Supper every Sunday and it was important for us to do so as one congregation.
So we did away with both our 8:00 am service and our 10:45 am service. We now only have one which starts at 10:15 am. In this one service our congregation is united in worship, Scripture reading, the ordinances, preaching, prayer, giving, and fellowship.
We knew this would cause seating issues and parking issues for us, but the health of our church was more important to us than our size and comfort. Six months later God blessed us with a move to a larger facility so that we could continue to meet as one body. The health and unity of our congregation has increased in ways that only can be understood by those who are in attendance.
I will write more on this subject in the future. But for now, I hope to at least draw the attention of pastors to this important issue of single vs. multiple worship services."

When my brother, Greg, heard that, he postulated that auto sales might ordinarily increase in April over May regardless of any divine intervention from the new savior of the world. I thought his reasoning was plausible; he suggested that there might be several factors to account for the increase. In April many people are concerned about paying their income taxes but, by May, they are looking forward to graduations, Father's Day, and Summer vacations - all of which may be occasions when people might shop for new cars.
