Hi Pat.

Thanks for your Post.
I do agree to the first part of it. "Then my suggestion is as follows: Bring to the Blogs what you wish to find, and I'm not referring to your desire for a "partner." What I mean is write a blog about things that honor God."

I think it's okay to warn others of scammers and other people alike who bring mayhem.

- the rest of your post seems to be an explanation of what happened in the past. And a praise of God for what He did for you.

We all post what we like. It's through these posts you see any dubious motives of some in time, and I agree post what's on your heart at the time. No need to justify. God bless.

Judgement Day will be interesting.

Hi Sojourner, hey Urban...

Thanks for your comments, we each are able to make the blogs a place of interest and fun and blessing, if every one of us makes the effort. I'm willing to make that effort.

Thank you both for your comments.

As an afterthought, there may come a time when if a certain environment remains unpleasant after your best Christian efforts, then it's time to shake the dust off of your feet and move on (Matthew 10:14). In fact, to linger in some situations likely exacerbates the problem.

The Bible also says in so many words not to take part with darkness, but rather, expose it/them (Ephesians 5:11). The Word also says not to cast pearls before swine (Matthew 7:6).

There's a time to engage, and there's a time to humbly walk away (Proverbs 14: 7-9; Ecclesiastes 3:6).

There's a balance to the Christian walk. Moderation is key (Philippians 4:5), and knowledge is available to those who discern (Proverbs 14:6).

I recorded the recent Billy Graham special that was telecast after he passed away, and decided to watch it this morning, being rained in and all. I stopped the recording in mid-stream to write here.

in the 1940's Billy Graham went through an intellectual struggle regarding the validity of the Bible. Apparently several of his contemporaries had begun to argue against its accuracy. He began to question it too. So at one point he ventured into the "wilderness," much like Jesus did. While in the depths of a forest, he took his Bible and placed it on a nearby stump. "Lord," he said, "while I don't understand the Bible, and there are many things about it that are unexplainable, I accept it by Faith, just the way I accepted Jesus, Your Word by Faith." Apparently this act set the pace for the remainder of Mr. Graham's evangelical and personal life, the evidence of which has been obvious.

So what does that mean to me? If Jesus was able to change and even transform Mr. Graham by Faith alone, and I also attest to at least believing in Jesus, then it shouldn't be so elusive for me to accept the Bible on Faith as well.

I need to meditate on this, perhaps a short trip into the "wilderness" is for me long overdue?
