    Ditto. And my stomach doesn’t wake up until 10am so when I do want to hit MickeyD’s, I’m always pressed to get there before the breakfast menu disappears.

    So this is really good news for me, tho I only eat breakfast there once a week - or less.......

  • Questions on Acts 4

    09/02/2015 7:14:49 AM PDT · 4 of 5
    Arlis to LearsFool

    The Bible, being a spiritual book, is locked and cannot be unlocked by the human mind - by itself. I Corin. 2:6 - 16. That is until the Holy Spirit gives light, revelation and understanding. The natural man cannot understand that which is spiritual.

    God is spirit (John 4), and only the Holy Spirit reveals Him to fallen man. This is why Paul so often spoke of the need for revelation, e.g., Eph. 1:15 - 17, and how he only came to his understanding of thing by revelation.

    This is why for the believer who continues to seek the Lord, the Bible never ceases to give new insights (NOT new “truth”) into who God is, who Jesus Christ is, and all that was done on the cross and the depths of His love for us. We will never know God fully, and it will take all eternity for Him to reveal Himself to us. Yes, when we see Him face-to-face, we will know Him in a fuller sense - but still, as He is God, His depths are infinite.

    So even we who know the Lord must always, when reading scripture, approach His word humbly, confessing our need for the Holy Spirit to open the “eyes of our understanding”, depending wholly on the Holy Spirit to teach us and let us see what is hidden from the natural eye and the natural mind.

    Much trouble has come in Christendom from men approaching and using scripture with their minds apart from the Holy Spirit - with the most common result being division amongst God’s people......”I have the truth......and you don’t......”, or “I see, and you don’t...” being the attitude. Like that of the Jews & Pharisees in John 9:39 - 41.

    There is so much more.......getting married is “white”, so it is unacceptable for a black to do that - having many women and children by many women is a desirable; having children out of wedlock is desirable - to collect gov. money and get your EBT card; dropping out of school and getting bad grades is desirable - it’s whites that don’t do that; and so on.

    A young man I have been working with for about 15 years, now 30, still spends a lot of time in the hood where he does tats (he’s an artist) tells me how he’s always arguing with his friends there because they all believe all whites are racists. He knows better.

    But he can’t change their minds.

  • Sciatica

    08/30/2015 5:34:04 AM PDT · 132 of 145
    Arlis to Maine Mariner

    Please see a doctor. Or good chiropractor first.

    I’ve had 3 back surgeries for sciatica and have been free from pain since 1992 - I’m 70.

    First and most severe case was successfully dealt with by a good chiro whose treatment had me well in 30 days. Pain was so severe I couldn’t walk one step as 10,000 volts would shoot up my leg to spine. He did something I’ve never found any chiro to duplicate, but said he used my tendons & muscles along my spine to push a bulging disc back into place. Like the Chinese finger tube that gets tighter the harder you pull it. All I know is it worked. Right leg.

    Years later I ruptured a disc pinching the nerve in my left leg. No chiro could fix it, and none knew of the method used by the first one. Osteopaths couldn’t fix it. Steroid injections couldn’t fix it.

    Swore no doc would ever touch me with a knife as I had tennis friend who had 3 back surgeries in a year and was left a cripple in a wheelchair. But I learned from him - never let an orthopedic surgeon cut you when dealing with nerves. Find the best neurosurgeon experienced with sciatica. BTW, I accused my friend of not telling me that sciatica was contagious as I had gotten mine from so much time visiting him in the hospital. ;-)

    Eventually I had to have surgery - couldn’t sleep - and you can only go without sleep for so long. I found the best neurosurgeon for sciatica in the area, and was walking without pain a few hours after surgery.

    The pain came back 4 years later, again, I tried everything but surgery - with each successive surgery, the liklihood of success drops by 50% they say. Nothing worked. Even an arthroscopic surgery.

    Finally I had the first doc do it - again, instant relief - that has lasted 23 years. This time is was scar tissue from the first surgery on one side of the nerve, calcified bone growth on the other side.

    A pinched sciatic nerve can have dozens of causes - some purely muscular. Those can be healed with things like stretching that have been mentions.

    But when you have a ruptured disc, nothing will fix it but surgery - or a divine healing. I was facing being crippled for life from atrophied muscles if I didn’t have surgery, even if I could have endured the pain.

    This is too complex an issue to try to fix yourself. See a chiro first - if that doesn’t work, get thyself to a good back doc and only let a neurosurgeon do the work.

    HTH - hope this helps....

    Serious reflection and introspection? How about serious thinking?

    Trump has a lot in common with Obama - egotist, narcissist, and no fundamental set of core values. There is no indication he is a constitutionalist or that he wants to be ruled by it.

    Better than O? Of course. A million times. But not one to lead us back value-wise.

    The horror we have experienced over the last 6 years has everyone screaming for anybody they think can be a true leader to take us away from the disaster O has been. But many would take a tyrant who looked to be O’s opposite - which Trump is in many ways.

    And there’s still the issue - can Trump beat Hillary? - IF she isn’t destroyed by her email scandal........ or any other Dem? I’m not sure.

    One point someone else made that has value: Trump will never go into a deal he thinks he might lose. His ego will allow it, and especially at the biggest thing he has ever tackled. If he doesn’t see clearly that he can beat any Dem, I believe he’ll drop out - and support any conservative nominee. And that’s the same reason he won’t run 3rd party. He’d lose. And Trump doesn’t lose.

    I’m hoping Trump is setting up Cruz.

    Yes we are angry - and rightfully so.

    Arlis to Salvation

    A good word indeed, and I have pointed out to many that the one characteristic/trait of the Lord Jesus that is most lacking in today’s Christian leaders is.............humility.

    But the article lacks a couple truths:

    We can no more be humble than we can climb to the moon.

    We are proud. God hates pride, and “resists the proud.”, is against the proud. How wise is it to have God against you?

    What will bring humility?

    God tells us to HUMBLE OURSELVES which is an action that can, as the author points out, eventually result in humility being produced in us.

    Seeing God as He is will produce humility in us. Pride simply tells us (and others) that we do not know God.

    We must, in God’s light and revelation, see our own pride and how truly ugly it is. Like the little yapper dogs smaller than cats yapping at the elephant.....absurd.

    We have two choices: humble ourselves - or let God humble us.

    Luke 17:11 Jesus tells us the attitude we should have “AFTER WE HAVE DONE ALL HE HAS COMMANDED” (who can claim to have done such?) is, “I am an unprofitable servant, and unworthy slave.”

    Interestingly, that is His answer to the disciples question on how to have more faith............

    I’m a big Cruz fan, but actually think Carly might be the best president of the whole lot because of her real-world executive experience - more than any of the governors including Perry. HP revenues may be slightly less that the Texas state budget, but she has managed a business, not a government, and would thus bring more practical management wisdom to the POTUS seat.

    I like R.C., and he’s generally right-on in most things, but here he’s stretching things a bit too far.

    Clearly the term “Sons of God” is meant to describe beings different from man, and no where else in the O.T. is the term used for believers.

    I’m not sure that it refers to angelic beings either, but R.C.’s exegesis is very weak here and a “bridge too far.”

    When scripture is not clear in what it is saying, we simply have to accept it, and accept not understanding its meaning. One day we will see clearly. Too arrive at a conclusion as R.C. does here, we need far more scripture to support the position.

She had amazing success, totally removing all prostitutes off the 4 corners of one intersection that was the central location for prostitution in Managua.

    I love Hispanics, work with orphans and street kids in Nicaragua, and speak their language. My son is married to a Nica and lives there.

    I speak Spanish fluently because my Advanced Spanish prof in college was from Spain. On the first day of class, he told us two things would be necessary to pass his class.

    “You think you know Spanish because you’ve had a lot to get to this class. But you don’t know a language unless you think in the language, and dream in it. You won’t pass this class at the end unless you are thinking in Spanish - and you can’t fool me. I can tell if you are thinking in Spanish or translating....”

    “Number two: my language is a beautiful language - and I cannot stand to hear it spoken with a gringo accent. If you speak with an American/gringo accent you will not pass this class. I will teach you two accents - Castillian and Mexican, and you must be good at both to pass this class.”

    Because I am also fluent - and more at home - in Brazillian Portuguese, many Latino’s think I am Brasillian.....

    As I’ve yet to live in a Spanish-speaking country, my vocabulary is limited, and I still have trouble understanding them when they are in native 100mph mode. Colombian, Ecuadorian, Peruvian, Chilean and Argentinian Spanish are easier for me to understand. Mas puro.

    My son lives in Nicaragua (Nica wife) and speaks Spanish far better than I, but for a couple years had a horrible gringo accent - I was always on his case about his horrible accent - but now he is much better and his gringo accent is fading.....

    I believe if you are going to learn another language, you must learn to speak it as the natives do.

    When I’m in Brasil, they ask me, “Where are you from? I know you are Brasileiro, but where are you from?” because I learned my Portuguese all over the country and do not have a regional accent - theirs are very distinct - Paulista, Carioca, do Sul (south), etc.

    I agree with you, and think no one knows his true motives - which are almost certainly mixed.

    I like his boldness to tell the truth without fear - his GOP competitors need to go to school on him.

    I fear his ending up as POTUS because

    a.) he’s proven to not have a moral foundation, nor a fear of God. He is NOT a conservative.

    b.) he’s clearly out for himself first - not unlike our current POTUS,

    c.) but unlike our current POTUS who is ideologically driven to intentionally destroy our nation, Trump does love our nation and truly wants to save it.

    d.) he’s a populist who is stirring up and taking the lead by playing on the deep angst in our populace - especially conservatives...not unlike Hitler;

    e.) with no solid moral foundation, he could be a great president in some ways, and very scary in others.

    So no one really knows.

    And I doubt if Trump knows himself at this point.

    I’m sure our gov. knows, as well as the Russians and Chinese.

    They aren’t going to reveal the truth because O is the best thing that happened to both countries in history, and they love the USA being both diminished on the world stage and internally destroyed here.

    In fact, he may be their “Manchurian Candidate”.

    No need.

    She hasn’t let him within 10’ of her sexually for decades......decades........

    Everyone with any sense knows it’s a sham marriage, covering the truth for both of them - hiding his many ladies-in-waiting and her love for her girls.........

    The weakness is not in the system.

    It’s that passive conservatives, in spite of being well-warned, allowed the Marxists to take over the education system in toto, and then media - all as planned. That’s the root.

    Thus giving us now 2 generations of brainwashed, dumbed-down, immature voters who live in their little worlds of texting, twittering, video games, etc. and who will vote blindly for whatever Marxist is running.

    Until the root is dealt with, true conservatives will just be putting out fires while the left continues to feed our culture with Marxism......fueling the fire beyond putting out.

    It’s going to take someone like Trump - or Cruz - to deal with the truth......but I don’t see either of them dealing with root causes - only symptoms.

    The immigration issue is a symptom.........its origin is a Marxist world view pushed and promoted by our Marxist-in-Chief.........
