    no, and I never made that claim. HOWEVER, the leader of our faith and God of the universe tells us NOT TO FORESAKE the assemblying toegether... SO those people that are not part of a church Body are in disobedience.. they are not sharing their gifts nor are they being discipled.


    how are they better.. or are you saying they are GOOD people.. kind friendly, helpful, considerate??? or are they bringing people to Christ and teaching them in their homes. Are tehy making disciples, or are they just nice people

    if your claim that they are better because they are nicer... nicer and being good does not = being a christian. So tell me how these people you personally know are better then church going people that are following Jesus.

    if they are having a home group then that is a church... church is not a building... church is a group of like minded followers who meet to praise God and follow him



    BEING BORN AGAIN, repenting, Dying to self, Loving God and Neighbors....



    He actually came for the lost sheep of Israel and to Glorify his Father.. our Job is to obey his commands....

    are the people you know that are better then most church folks hanging out with hookers. are you hanging out with hookers. when is the last time you spoke with somebody ... in person about Jesus
    You have answered both of my questions. Thank-you.
    rest in peace Corporal Bradley Coy 06/08/92-10/24/14

    Well, RPD, I should add that even bikers have "internal classes" and specialized patches to trumpet their status.

    The Madison CC Riders are such a motorcycle club, and I wear the proud patch of the "Pork Patrol."

    For those members here who are afraid of big motorcycles, consider that patch a "Congressional Medal of Dishonor."

    I've been just reading along here with great interest and not trying to get into any more of the discussion, but this stood out to me. Does your wife know that you put her before your kiddos (I don't know how old your children are, are they still actual children?). Does she feel the same way? This is curious to me.

    Fortunately, I also placed my order for their miniature sized copper folders. It is my practice to put the "fighting switchblade" into my right hand pocket, and the smaller version in my left side pocket. My wife always says she has a knife, prefers the the smaller size, and because she's left-handed, filches my smaller knife on that side...

    I think the "copper phase" failed because the blades don't look like 'steel.' This is an unwise choice if you live in places like my Wisconsin where rain and snow is a seasonal and regular happening. The knives in your pocket get soaked.

    I have also rubbed down my copper folders with a very soft rag and a slight few drops of Butcher Block Oil to further resist corrosion. These little knives are just as sharp as their big brothers. And as a further benefit, the libtards won't all panic and faint if you pull out one of these little guys to snip a loose thread.

    Well, each of us--if we're dedicated preppers--brings knowledge to the table for the benefit of others. Annie brings up issues on food prep. RPD reminds us of the political entanglements of our government gone wrong, as he points out "everything old is new again."

    Even Yavanna has taught me that there are valuable people beyond my doorstep with ideas and concerns I had never considered. All these things make a better people, and hopefully stronger.

    Two weeks ago I didn't know what a Pilar folder was, now I see its benefits for safety, security, medical use, and durability. Every scrap of information helps us.

    my kids are 29, 27, 26, 10, 8, and 7

    Yes, she knows...

    The wife and I started this family, we are the center and the foundation. We will be together after the kids are gone. We set an example for them

    the kids will grow up, move out, get married, etc

    you might try to make it seem like them being third behind my wife (God, Wife, Kids)is a big deal, it is not.

    people will wont to see it like God......................................Wife..... .................................................. .................................................. ..Kids

    it is not

    it is like God.....................Wife.kids

    it is like they are 2B behind my wife as 2A


    if you ask my kids who the boss/in charge person is they will tell you that Dad is...followed closely by mom

    so, ya.. my kids are loved, cared for, cherished, but their mother is more important to me then they are

    I would also like to make this point...we are raising adults not children . someday they will have a spouse and their spouse will be more important to them then we are... If we have done our jobs right!

    does that explain things better

    As it should be M-M. God first, if you keep him there things will begin to fall in place the way they should.
    You marry your spouse for life, you raise your kids to love God and become productive adults.
    Eventually the kids will move on to their own lives. Your spouse will (hopefully) still be there long after.
    And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him;... Genesis 16:12
