I think many people don’t understand what it takes to get a bible translated into another language. It’s not like taking the Bible, copying the words into a translator, and a new version is created. As long as people cannot understand the words they are reading, the Bible remains a closed book. Today about 200 million people (about 1,800 languages) still don’t have a Bible in their native language. Many more don’t have access to a Bible they can clearly understand.
Many of the world’s minority languages are oral, meaning they do not have a native system for writing. Because language is core to community and individual identity, a writing system must be created in close partnership with language speakers.
Scripts are chosen based on the dominant script being used in the area. Once the written word is constructed, we work to equip people with skills to read and write in their language.
This work often involves creating audio versions of Scriptures that are distributed during the learning process. Once the Bible translation work begins, efforts are focused on Scripture engagement and literacy, along with printing and distribution.

Funny thing. One day my wife heard an interesting teaching on divorce. Her parents divorced, mine did not. She said to get the dictionary out and cut the word divorce out of the dictionary. So we did that in front of our children. the ironic thing was this. After the word was cut out and the piece of paper fell to the floor, I noticed there another word on the other side of the page. The word was division…Interesting don’t you think?

As far as companies and entities coming “down on him”, Insurance companies and healthcare entities don’t vote, people do. And Ted represents the people, not the companies.

If it isn’t “In God we Trust” then who should we trust….the Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Libertarians, Talk Radio, Liberal Media, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Barack Obama…? I will stick with God. He is the only one I would ever trust…

Hey Ridley, when referring to an earthquake what category it sometimes referred to as being? I don’t know, maybe ‘an all an act of God’
As far as material for films, it seems like “Faith based films” have become “Faith Ba$ed Film$” to some liberal directors

Love the sinner, not the sin. We have all fallen short of what God intended. What the church needs to do is get up and say, “You’re living in sin. Stop it!” The problem with some churches is that they won’t preach sin is wrong. People don’t want to hear that. The world may be changing around us, but two things won’t change. God will always be God and sin will always be sin.
You are quoting Ghandi. Your phrase is no where communicated in the Bible.

You say that
*****Capitalism is a hindrance to a free market and the cause of the current economic roller coaster—
.per Google the definition of Capitalism
an economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.
synonyms: free enterprise, private enterprise, the free market;
See where it says synonyms:
A synonym :a word or phrase that means exactly or nearly the same as another word or phrase in the same language, for example shut is a synonym of close.
Therefore, Capitalism is the same as Free Market. In other words Capitalism cannot hinder itself

Beautiful signs. What are they made of? I’m sure the company that printed those signs gave them to you. How about the handwritten signs, did you get that paper free? I am sure mean capitalist companies like Wal-Mart, Office Depot or Staples has stopped selling products and gives the materials away free of charge. I am quite sure that the those nice t-shirts the people wearing were made by anti capitalist. The clothes you wear. The vehicle that got you here. The roads you stand on. How about the megaphone or the batteries used to yell at the crowds that you hate Capitalism were made by capitalist. Even Michael Moore, who made an Anti Capitalism movie made millions off of it laughed at you all the way to the bank(literally). As far as the police are concerned, who are you going to call when you are the victim of a crime? Hate capitalism…go to CUBA

Working at the IRS can best be explained below:
There are 365 days per year available for work.
On average an IRS employee has 2 days off per week. That leaves 261 days for work.
Since an IRS employee spends 16 hours each day away from work, they have used up 170 days., This leaves only 91 work days. Each employee, on the average. spends 30 minutes each day on smoke or coffee breaks which counts for 23 days each year. This leaves only 68 days available to work. With a 1 hour lunch each day, each IRS employee has used up another 46 days eating lunch. That leaves only 22 days available for work. The average number of days spent for sick time is two days. This leaves you only 20 days per year available for work. The IRS gives five holidays per year.
We are off 5 holidays per year, so your available working time is down to 15 days. An IRS employee receives two weeks vacation per year which leaves only one day available for work. So really there is no way 500 apps can be processed in one day.
Before you try doing the math on the above scenario, don’t bother. :-O
Maybe the IRS should not use the false negative theory

“Go forth and multiply…” We have grown up in a society promoting the warnings about the “over population of the earth”. I think your should ask the people of Throckmorton County, TX. They are busting at the seams with 1461 people. What is wrong with building a stronger relation between people of a true marriage?

Well there are 194 other countries you can move to if that is your desire. Some countries that have much better governments might be North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Iran…I am sure all of the countries mentioned above would be more to your liking.

Apparently Gov. Perry may have something here. Even being one who lives here, I have neglected to pray about this. Amen
