They should just follow Jesus's example and hang around.
You won't find it written down. Tradition calls for three hours of silence and heavy reflection on the agony of Jesus. (the 3 hours it took Him to die) What he did for each and every one of us. The pain He endured for our own sin. Can you imagine the pain of the 'due' suffering of every individual for all of their sins? All the people of the world- all of their sins - He bore it all and died an horrific death.....and WE get the benefits of his sacrifice. When we celebrate Easter--that is really celebration as WE can have the benefits of His Resurrection.

I “see” a person is Black, White, ETC… I do not judge based on that.
I “see” a person has blonde hair, red hair, black hair, etc…I do not judge based on that
I “see” a person as tall, short, etc..I do not judge based on that
I “See” how people act and judge based on that….
These demonstrators are judged to be rude and ignorant – with a lack of knowledge

It is not an anger issue… anger is not in and of itself a bad thing
it is a SELF CONTROL Issue..
I get mad/angry at my wife, kids, friends..I do not slam them in the throat…WHY – because I no right from wrong and can control myself
Isn't anger a good thing because usually it is triggered in an attempt to stand for justice? It may be misplaced sometimes. I don't know. I just know that I have little kids and when they are angry, it is always because of an injustice. And if a kid can know if they got shorthanded, certainly an adult can. But indeed, we need to control it.

I pulled into a parking lot a while back and as i parked i saw a rather large young man start walking toward my drivers side door.. I waited to open the door he stopped and walked back to the sidewalk.
I watched him in my side mirror.
I hopped out pretty quickly and saw him start to walk toward me again.. I turned and raised my shirt so he could see I was carrying a pistol, he turned and walked up the street away from me
LOL....yep, makes people reevaluate their intentions.......
I was driving down to San Francisco and had to make an 0200 pit stop at a Rest Area just North of the cutoff to the Bay.
Standing there at the urinal, when two big Hispanic dudes come in behind me and stop, one slightly to each side, but still a few feet back. Now, there were at least eight empty urinals in the place, so there was no reason for these clowns to stand there behind me.
As usual, John Browning's best design was riding under my left shoulder, in a horizontal shoulder rig and I was fully prepared to blow several holes in my old leather Flight Jacket. I reached up and "Snicked" the safety off and it was incredibly loud in that tile and concrete echo chamber.
The next sound I heard was two pair of feet scampering back out of that restroom. By the time I walked out, all there was to see was a Low-Rider Impala going balls-out out of the parking lot.
Used my cell to call the CHP and told them what had happened and gave them a description of the car. They caught these clowns about five miles down the freeway and one of them had a beat-up old .32 acp with three rounds in the magazine.
My only regret was that I never even got a look at those two, so all they could do was charge them for the pistol and a switchblade that the other guy had. Win some, lose some.

J-mo – I am betting you NEVER served. I did 21 years – It was a comfort to have a chaplain and when you are in a place far form home in a place that is bad/horrible/awful it is nice to have a chaplain around.
not sure why we should take a benefit away from the many because of a very small minority
Agreed, there were many fine Chaplains with whom I served during my 22 years. They certainly added value to the time we spent away from home.
Most service people do attend weekly services and use the Chaplain counseling service.
I served five years in the Navy (79-84). Never had a use for the Chaplains at all. The few interactions I had with them I would classify as “annoying” ..
"I served five years in the Navy (79-84). Never had a use for the Chaplains at all. The few interactions I had with them I would classify as “annoying”
So based on your limited exposure to chaplains about 30 years ago, you recommend getting rid of their valuable service that's an option (not a requirement) for the service men/women and dependents?

Did you read the part where he made it CLEAR to potential clients that he was a Christian and his counseling was based on that!!!!!
Premarital sex is a SIN!
Homosexuality is a SIN!
If you do not want christian counseling do not go to a Christian. They could have said they did not want Christian counseling and other arranges would have been made.
When I have questions about the Bible I do not call the local plumber and I never ask the local pastor to work on my electrical system!!!!
lets try a small dose of common sense

Truth – if two TRUTH contradict then one is wrong!
If you describe your God one way and I describe mine another… one of us is wrong
God does not make junk?… God gave us free will… and we can choose to be junk…
all religions contain some truth –

you forgot to say..WE HAVE TO DO IT FOR THE CHILDREN…THE CHILDREN

DO NOT forsake the assembling together.
some are to be preachers and teachers
I am sure Jesus would not want people to not gather together..
the REAL HOUSE OF GOD… LOL.. where is the real house

there are verses that oppose a man laying with a man…notice it does not say before, during, or after marriage… it is a general statement’

Is being an abomination wrong.
Is being thrown into a fiery pit forever a sign it is not right

In the consumer v business setup – you fire somebody by not using their service
 February 6, 2015 at 12:42pm
I think a business should have the right to refuse service to anybody for any reason.
The person that is refused service then has the right to post the info online, in blogs, tell all their friends etc…
I also think business owner should have the right to allow or not allow smoking>
If it was me…. I would sell wedding cakes at $25,000 a cake, and then offer a $24,980 discount to heterosexuals….

I can keep them from being vaccinated. It is not a matter of OWNERSHIP… You mentioned OWNERSHIP…not me..not sure where you got that IDEA…
I do not own my children.. I am legal guardian/parent/protector..
I make decision and until they are 18 – my word has the rule of law in my house. I allow more freedom as they show good judgement.

Sorry about you Niece…
Do you honestly feel the government should force 360,000,000 people to get a needle stuck into their body in order to protect your niece.
What about mandatory testing for other illnesses if they are within 1,000 foot of a hospital.
NO SIR – nobody should be FORCED.. can you imagine dragging a 3 year old away from her parents at gun point so the government can inject them.
I did a quick search and found 4 cases where deaths were directly caused by the vaccine.
how many others are you willing to kill to protect your niece
 February 4, 2015 at 11:29am
Sure they do… but wearing a seat belt is not the same as having a piece of metal inserted into your body and a substance inject into you.
 February 4, 2015 at 11:28am
Until my kids are 18…I do have the right to make choices for them.. What they eat, what they drink, when they sleep, when they take a bath, who they hang out with, where they go to school or home school, if they go to church or not, if they get a drivers license, if they get shots.
You might not like my choices… but you do not have to like them..

Food, Water, Shelter, Security, Medical.
If you have enough food and water..you can stay home (shelter) and not have to go out for it… You will have to defend it… find some like minded friends.
I am not in the shape I was when i was 20 and in the Marines. At 52, I am slower fatter but a lot smarter
I have a bunch of food, live next to water, heat with wood, have lots of seeds.
I guarantee there will be a lot of starving people that went to the gym 5 times a week but have no food or way to defend themselves
Church – good idea, but go for the message not the benefits of team work
