    it all

    To anyone who doesn't understand the message in the OP, I would suggest getting a very high resolution monitor and zooming in to the title. Then it all will be very clear

    HEAVEN by Randy Alcorn

    I didn't catch anything overtly calvinist when I read it, but he definitely doesn't mention the rapture, which was the biggest disappointment. Another thing like was mentioned above is that he is snarky about people that believe the New Jerusalem will float above the New Earth. He claims people...

    Singular "they"

    Same with me. I ended up learning more about grammar concepts in my Spanish classes. It's easy to forget English counts as a foreign language for you :lol

    Singular "they"

    Grammar isn't taught so much in school now adays. I learned practically everything I know about it in middle school because I was part of the "gifted" program and my wonderful teacher made sure to actually teach us. But the only time I can remember diagramming sentences is when we took a break...

    I love my grammar. She still bakes me cookies

    Singular "they"

    The topic of dangling participles will have to be another thread :lol but I've always liked the response commonly attributed to Winston Churchill where he says after being corrected about a dangling participle, "this is the sort of errant pedantry up with which I will not put" Whether Churchill...

    Singular "they"

    Hey I said the things I do best in, not the things in which I do perfectly

    Singular "they"

    It works, but it's also clunky... Just a reminder there is always someone better than me, even at the things I do best in :lol This is the situation I was questioning when i wrote the OP

    Singular "they"

    Even in situations where gender isn't concerned, singular they is becoming more popular. For example, "when someone decides to get food, they often buy fast food" you still conjugate as if it were plural, but it supposedly functions as parallel to a the original singular "someone"

    Singular "they"

    I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to grammar, so even though it's becoming accepted by more and more in academia to use singular they, it just doesn't sit well with me. I guess another alternative might be using a lot of "one," but that sounds stuffy. When one does this, one also does that...

    Singular "they"

    My fellow grammar-minded RFers, what are your thoughts on this phenomenon? Is there a better alternative? I've been playing around with neutral "he," which has largely gone out of style. "He/she" was a staple in old essays of mine. Which do you default to?

    The Millennial Kingdom: Living and Eating

    To be fair, I learned it from Jack Kelley, and I also believe it's what the Bible says. It's not like I came up with the idea on my own, or I'm making it up even though I think the Bible says otherwise. Thankfully I don't think that highly of myself. Every time this conversation comes up it...
