  1. It all gives me a good chuckle. I was called out recently by some white folks for referring to my wife as a nice gal. I grew up in Omaha and had lots of family in Omaha, Lincoln and Iowa [obviously, lots of farmers]. Everyone I knew used "gal" to refer to a girl. Well, I guess that term refers to a black slave and shows ownership and branding [as in the mark you put on a cow], according to them. My Dad was a beef selector with IGA, I never heard of that term relating to this. I don't know, maybe it does. Whatever, all I know now is that I'm a racist. It doesn't matter that my wife is black, as I used the term "gal" in a conversation. I have two black sons as well [but I'm a racist]. Ha ha.
  2. Was your earlier posts a "gut feeling" you had or did you have info and sources that made you believe and then post what you did? And since then, a few more meetings have occurred and perhaps for lack of offers he's coming here?
  3. Guy, that quote in the "About" section is from Robert Farrar Capon. The person in the video posted that video and is simply a contributor to the Religion Free Fellowship. Thought you might enjoy this quote, it is from my favorite writer, Major Ian Thomas, who has passed. He wrote the Foreword to Classic Christianity [probably was of the best and simplest reads that I think describes "The Life" that Jesus gives to any who will believe in His "work of God" [John 6:27-29]. In any event, every time I chew on this it is so deep and true. I did a Understanding the Zoe/Zao Life Conference a couple of weeks ago [the Zoe Life is the life gives as Source] and used this quote as a part of the intro. Most of those in the "religion" of Christianity have missed what Jesus mediated in His New Covenant gospel and thus don't understand what Galatians 2:20 and Romans 6:1-14 actually mean about "being crucified with Christ". Here's the quote: Foreword to Classic Christianity - Major Ian Thomas There are few things quite so boring as being religious, but there is nothing quite so exciting as being a Christian! Most folks have never discovered the difference between the one and the other, so that there are those who sincerely try to live a life they do not have, substituting religion for God, Christianity for Christ, and their own noble endeavors for the energy, joy, and power of the Holy Spirit. In the absence of reality, they can only grasp at ritual, stubbornly defending the latter in the absence of the former, lest they be found with neither! They are lamps without oil, cars without gas, and pens without ink, baffled at their own impotence in the absence of all that alone can make man functional; for man was so engineered by God that the presence of the Creator within the creature is indispensable to his humanity. Christ gave Himself for us to give Himself to us! His presence puts God back into the man! He came that we might have life—God’s life! There are those who have a life they never live. They have come to Christ and thanked Him only for what He did, but do not live in the power of who He is. Between the Jesus who “was” and the Jesus who “will be” they live in a spiritual vacuum, trying with no little zeal to live for Christ a life that only He can live in and through them, perpetually begging for what in Him they already have! It is to those who try to live a life they do not have, and to those who have a life they do not live that Bob George [and the book Classic Christianity] addresses himself in these pages, vividly illustrated out of his own personal experience and that of those with whom he has counseled. Here is the truth that sets men free. This is where “the rubber hits the road,” a book full of spiritual insight and common sense, enjoyable and easy-to-read. I am convinced that many, heartily sick of the “rat race,” will in reading these pages find in the Lord Jesus Christ the final answer to their need. Major W. Ian Thomas
  4. Great message by Rob Shultz Are You Motivated by Love or Fear? What Do You Believe? https://www.facebook.com/100009284712054/videos/976270223320711/ Mark Jesus New Covenant Academy
  5. Matt McMillian does a "Walk & Talk" quite often that is usually enjoyable. This one was on Spiritual Warfare. He is a fellow admin on a couple of Facebook groups. In his own group, we now have over 70,000 members who are learning and discovering what Jesus mediated in His New Covenant. Very exciting. You might want to skip through the first 3-4 minutes as he welcomes folks. Matt lives in St. Louis. SPIRITUAL WARFARE BASICS Topics: Satan, Demons, Demonic Possession, Revelation 12, Colossians 2:15, 1 John 3:8, 1 John 5:17, Ephesians 6:10-17, Accusations, Armor of God, Deliverance (Instagram rebroadcast 1-23-22) https://fb.watch/aN4OzPdMT1/
  6. Enjoy Mike and Joel's thought this week about "forgiveness".
  7. I wouldn't be a fan of getting this guy. He's just too chubba. I don't think it would look purdy behind our current OL. Pass.
  8. It sounds like you have something from the past with me you might be bringing into the post. I was simply asking what he meant and saw by his statement of "huge get". This has nothing to do with Daniels or Toure. Both of those "gets" were very nice players for us from my eyes/vantage point. Since it's a forum, I thought it would be interesting to hear what he meant by "huge get", especially since I have no clue on who the kid or his background. It sounded like he seemed to have a "high view" of him. It is okay to ask questions an garner what another has heard or sees since it was just a recent post and no one had stated any real "details" on who this kid has been as a player. It's Christmas ... feel free to drop the axe for a couple of days. Ha ha.
  9. Obviously, you haven't seen my posts about the OL over this past year. The question for theknife was regarding what he meant by "huge get"? I took it to mean "that" as reference to him being a "body" in the mix and not necessarily a "huge get" as in ... he's a real stud who will make a great impact.
  10. Ya, that's all I take as well. Thanks for your input.
  11. Seems like a body and a fill-in for a year to me. By "huge get" you mean what? Is this kid "special" in his ability or just a "piece" that will interchange with what we've had? No clue here.
  12. I take this as a bit unfair. It's been fascinating over the past 3-4 years to see the 11-1, 10-2, and 9-3 crowd look at the 7-5, 6-6, and 5-7 crowd as the "idiots". It's the 3-9 to 5-7 crowd who has been looked down upon again and again and again. Just last week, I had a guy on here calling me an "idiot" for my view of the horrid OL. So much so, I went and found his predictions for the past years. He was an 11-1 or 10-2 guy. "What an idiot!". We all get to have an opinion here. Sadly, its "the greatest fans on the earth" who too often are the "stupid" ones, and wrong ... who speak down to the "lowly". I enjoyed you "spinning" this your way and direction. My guess is that The Scarlet Pimpernel knows more about football than at least me.
  13. I enjoyed your post. Do you think we would win it or lose it?
  14. I just took another paragraph to state my intention. So, now in your follow-up, I am doing so again. You are reading into what I said and refusing to hear me, which is okay. Just pointing out that I took the time to state my intention. If it is not received then you simply choose to see me and my words in the wrong way [which I get].
