Now they’re more like this week’s shooting. We are...

    Thought you men might like to hear about my experience. I've been putting oil in my beard to keep it soft. The essential oils mixed in act as an astringent, keeping me from excess bacteria and fungus in my beard. Certainly makes my wife feel better kissing me cause my beardy beard is softer...

    Issues with error screens

    I've had an error screen blocking me from signing on all day, and it finally allowed me through. I'm posting this really quick before it happens again (which it's done) to see if anyone knows what is going on, whether it's just me or not. I've used different browsers to no avail.

    2 Peter 3:16 "He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction [italics are mine]." - regarding...

    Any articles or studies - commentaries - on seasons of sinning in Christian life. I think it would be nice to gain more understanding why I keep going through seasons of sinning in my life. I just can't seem to stay static and focus on God and it always has me worried.

    Spoke in tongues - for the first time

    So a couple days ago I spoke in tongues for the first time. Out of 21 years of being a believer, it happened. I was up early praying when the thought of tongues came up amidst my prayers. I just kept on, thinking it an aberrant thought. Then the Spirit prompted me, saying, "try it." I remember...
