Re: What is the first thing you plan to do after dying?

I believe some people will have the privilege of meeting Jesus when they die even if they never came into His presence in this life. So I will plan on it and hope for the best. :) I sure hope so, too. I know many people who I believe have been given the burden of lifelong afflictions--I like to thi...

Re: What is the first thing you plan to do after dying?

If sin and unbelief are what keep us from the presence of God, would we actually be able to stand in His presence just because we've died? The scriptures never refer to the veil as death; any reference to it is in terms of "the veil of unbelief" or "veil of darkness." So wouldn't this veil that sepa...

Re: BSA announces it is now allowing girls

Its true that their choices are not what you would have chosen, it seems, had you been at the helm of the scouts organization, but they are rational choices by rational people, right or wrong according to your values. While I agree with your values for the choices that I make for my life, being an ...

Re: BSA announces it is now allowing girls

I'd still like to know how a scoutmaster should handle a girl joining the troop who marked on her application that she's a male. Remember, they started allowing this with their previous policy change, what, last year? Do you treat her as one of the guys and let her share a tent and bathrooms with th...

Re: BSA announces it is now allowing girls

I think it is just as important for a girl to know those things as a boy, but where it gets problematic is that many girls just don't like that stuff. Mixing them with boys introduces issues for both of them and I personally think it is a horrible idea. If boys just want to be boys and focus on boy...

Automatic weapons are already illegal. I'm not sure where they can go with it. AFAIK, he outsmarted gun control itself in addition to the law enforcement. One article I read was saying he used a bump-fire stock. So the rifle would still be semi-auto, meaning you get one bang for every pull of the t...

Just because someone understands what can so easily go wrong in a marriage like that mentioned above by brianj does not mean they are declaring "superiority".
People who understand that don't call people in interracial marriages "race traitors."

When the first plane flew into the World Trade Center tower, most people thought it was likely an accident. When the 2nd one hit, everybody knew it was an attack. I'll wait and see what Irma does. Harvey was a sucker-punch from out of the blue. Irma might be the wind-up haymaker.
