Re: God is a Spirit...

And yet man is created in the image of God.... reading scriptures, i can’t believe it’s either/or, but, both+more, i.e., beyond the realm of human comprehension. evenso, we’re given what-we-need, when-where-what form, to fulfill His purposes. i have the hardest time grasping God is truly in the phy...

Re: Trump supports efforts to improve gun background checks

When I was young and thought hunting was fun, and even more ignorant as I am today, I joined the NRA. I had no idea of the big picture or the politics, I just wanted a new hunting magazine and cool decals, and a fancy hat. I think I was a member for just a year or two, whatever the minimum was. I r...

Re: Guns, violence, heart problems, rich+poor

let it go, boot. please. OK, I will let it go. But please do me a favor here and elsewhere - if I didn't understand you, please clarify instead of taking offense. We all have a reading comprehension problem when it comes to other people's posts. People misconstrue what I say all the time, intention...

Re: Guns, violence, heart problems, rich+poor

i have no fantasy this thread will ever make any sense. how to make sense out of the senseless. not likely to happen. on another gun thread, i just inadvertantly wrote, “the affluent criminally insane neighborhood mass murderers.” after writing, i thought, that’s kind of “it,” to describe the one gu...

Re: Guns, violence, heart problems, rich+poor

those traumatized, in a state of shock, should be protected from exploitation, not paraded around in public view - whether gun violence, house fires, natural disasters .. it’s inhumane. Surely the high school students at Parkland have a right to speak out. It would be inhumane to tell them they mus...

Re: I think it is funny

I'm sorry to hear of their plight. It may cause loss of employment. I am sure they will have things cleaned up and things up and running very soon. Flooding is only in low laying areas. There is a river that runs through and I suspect this is where the flooding is the worse. The area will recover q...

Media hype (if it bleeds, it leads) is absolutely a problem and I agree that those directly connected via family relationship or other relationships should avoid the media in their time of shock and grief as the Amish did at Nickel Mines. Alas, not all seem to have this wisdom. those traumatized, i...
