    Yawn! Sarah Palin lost me a couple years ago and I see her as very much a phony herself.

    She is very much a phony. A couple of classmates know her and her family. They really like Todd but can't stand Sarah. They told me that Sarah is only out for Sarah and if you don't have anything to help her career she ignores you.

    This sounds like his religious belief. Someone will correct me if I’m wrong, but this may be an Evangelical or Creationist belief. (?)

    Maybe the theory is a teaching of Dr. Carson’s church and he wants to adhere to his church’ beliefs.

    This is NOT a teaching of the SDA church. I have idea where Carson came up with this.

    Thanks for the info. All of these replies really have helped me understand what goes on. He is talking to housing today so that will probably be taken care of. He's waiting to submit their marriage license for housing. Like I said earlier, there was a screw up on our part that delayed it.

    The reason for the Sergeant comment was that he is up for promotion and he's worried that it will affect it somehow. He's pretty much the "straight laced, do the job and then some" type of guy so I don't know how this would.

    First he needs to go see his Family Readiness Officer. His FRO is the commands resource manager and will assist him and your daughter. Second he needs to get your daughter in DEERS. For that HE and SHE need to take the paperwork to The ID Card center. She gets her DOD ID Card at that time. Then he has to go to IPAC because they not the command get him in the system as married. I am assuming Pendelton has an IPAC like Lejeune.

    He is better off in base housing, no one will,turn off his electricity or evict him. If he deploys your daughter is better off in housing then in an apartment in Oceanside. She cannot not keep running home with each deployment, she need to manage her household. She is married it is time, with a little help,of course. She is better off with you until they get into base housing. I am a FRO and it is getting harder to find ways of assisting young married children who blow money on a tattoo, video game or entertainment system, and struggle to pay rent and utilities. In housing they do not get BHA but they only worry about food and cable TV. Does not hurt a young couple to miss an occasional meal because they miss managed their budget, helps them learn. Besides we have resources to,get food, just not money. Young Marine needs to get off his a$$ and take care of that young women. I wish them the best and hope God Blesses their union.

    Thanks for the information. I'll give her the info. They are good with their money and he treats her very well. I couldn't have asked for a better SIL. One item that i'm curious from what you said is that if he gets deployed his housing allowance stops? He may know this but I don't.

    Sorry, I’m not good at reading between the lines.

    No, she's still in College and he's just over a year into the Marines. I just spoke to her again and he's talking to housing. He doesn't know that i'm asking here and would probably be embarrassed. This could be just my daughter freaking out and not him.

    I am active duty Air Force, but I work with Marines. Although I agree with a lot of the general information posted here (like “talk to the First Sergeant”), realize that each branch handles issues slightly different and that things change over time. Your best bet is to get advice from an AD Marine.

    I work with a bunch of Marines. If you don’t mind, I can copy the general info you posted and take it to work tomorrow and see if they have any advice for this kid.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    As a vet (USAF), and as a Dad of two who chose the military (one now a Marine vet, the other a current Navy pilot), I can say that the military (in general) and the USMC specifically, will never,ever let a brother/sister down.

    Talking w the first sergeant is a very, very good idea. SIL might get a verbal talking-to (we called it something different), and he might get some extra training (and he might have a need for it, and that's okay) but he should be used to some verbal flak by now.

    All the very best to you, your daughter, and your Marine-in-law. (ooo-rah!)

    Thanks... He doesn't have a problem with any extra flak. He's a good kid. I'll suggest again for him to speak to his first sergeant

    When I was in only E4 and above qualified for on base housing or off base housing allowance. If he qualifies why couldn’t she simply postpone the move until he can start getting the pay.

    He's an E3. Still wet behind the ears.. She is staying here until this gets figured out. Getting him qualified requires their marriage license approved.

    “The problem is that he pulled the trigger early and submitted paperwork that he wouldn’t need base housing at the end of July.” How did he not know he was getting married?

    They were married June 28th so he figured that by the end of July the marriage license would have gone through and he would have received his housing money. The screw up with the license added a couple of weeks.

    EPA seems to have come to that conclusion -- but wouldn't it be a nice thing if the developers could at least get a "fair trial," before their project is executed?

    The EPA is late coming to the game. There has been numerous studies and in fact the mine owners have admitted that just the creation of the mine will indeed destroy a lot of the salmon habitat by removing streams. Add the fact that they will create tailing ponds which will hold thousands of tons of toxic waste forever. This area is prone to earthquakes and the release of this battery acid like crap will destroy whatever it comes into contact with.

    I would suggest for anyone interested in this is to search for Pebble Mine on Youtube and watch a few of them. There are some treehugger videos but there are some good fact based ones as well.

    Wait til the next generation comes along, with onboard GPS-based navigation. You’ll plug it into your laptopr or tablet, draw a course you want it to fly, and download to the drone. It will fly away, recording all the time, and return to you or to any designated location. This capability already exists, it’s called “hover and stare”, and it’s already cost-effective for low-cost drones.

  • Did the early Church move the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday? (Ecumenical)

    ParityErr to narses
    Saturday is not just a Jewish Sabbath and there is no evidence in the Bible that supports Sunday worship. The Catholic leaders readily admit changing it.

    The Catechism

    Recall the ceremony with which God made known His Law, containing the blessing of the seventh-day Sabbath, by which all humanity is to be judged. Contrast this with the unannounced, unnoticed anticlimax with which the church gradually adopted Sunday at the command of “Christian” emperors and Roman bishops. And these freely admit that they made the change from Sabbath to Sunday.

    In the Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, we read:

    Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
    A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
    Q. Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
    A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea, (AD 336) transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday….
    Q. Why did the Catholic Church substitute Sunday for Saturday?
    A. The Church substituted Sunday for Saturday, because Christ rose from the dead on a Sunday, and the Holy Ghost descended upon the Apostles on a Sunday.
    Q. By what authority did the Church substitute Sunday for Saturday?
    A. The Church substituted Sunday for Saturday by the plenitude of that divine power which Jesus Christ bestowed upon her! —Rev. Peter Geiermann, C.SS.R., (1946), p. 50.

    In Catholic Christian Instructed,

    Q. Has the [Catholic] church power to make any alterations in the commandments of God?
    A. ...Instead of the seventh day, and other festivals appointed by the old law, the church has prescribed the Sundays and holy days to be set apart for God’s worship; and these we are now obliged to keep in consequence of God’s commandment, instead of the ancient Sabbath. —Rt. Rev. Dr. Challoner, p. 211.

    In An Abridgment of the Christian Doctrine,

    Q. How prove you that the church hath power to command feasts and holy days?
    A. By the very act of changing the Sabbath into Sunday, which Protestants allow of; and therefore they fondly contradict themselves, by keeping Sunday strictly, and breaking most other feasts commanded by the same church.
    Q. How prove you that?
    A. Because by keeping Sunday, they acknowledge the church’s power to ordain feasts, and to command them under sin; and by not keeping the rest [of the feasts] by her commanded, they again deny, in fact, the same power. –Rev. Henry Tuberville, D.D. (R.C.), (1833), page 58.

    In A Doctrinal Catechism,

    Q. Have you any other way of proving that the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?
    A. Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her. She could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority. –Rev. Stephen Keenan, (1851), p. 174.

    In the Catechism of the Council of Trent,

    The Church of God has thought it well to transfer the celebration and observance of the Sabbath to Sunday! –p 402, second revised edition (English), 1937. (First published in 1566)

    In the Augsburg Confession,

    They [the Catholics] allege the Sabbath changed into Sunday, the Lord’s day, contrary to the decalogue, as it appears; neither is there any example more boasted of than the changing of the Sabbath day. Great, they say, is the power and authority of the church, since it dispensed with one of the ten commandments. —Art. 28.

    God warned that a blasphemous power would “seek to change times and laws,” and the Catholic Church openly admits doing it, even boasts about it. In a sermon at the Council of Trent in 1562, the Archbishop of Reggia, Caspar del Fossa, claimed that the Catholic Church’s whole authority is based upon the fact that they changed the Sabbath to Sunday. Does this not fulfill the prophecies of Daniel and Paul?

    “For centuries millions of Christians have gathered to worship God on the first day of the week. Graciously He has accepted this worship. He has poured out His blessings upon Christian people as they have sought to serve Him. However, as one searches the Scriptures, he is forced to recognize that Sunday is not a day of God’s appointment… It has no foundation in Scripture, but has arisen entirely as a result of custom,” says Frank H. Yost, Ph.D. in The Early Christian Sabbath.

    Let us ask the question again: Was the Sabbath changed from the seventh day of the week to the first? The Bible is clear: “And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy” (Genesis 2:3). “Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy” (Exodus 20:11). If God intended for another day to become the Sabbath, He must have removed the blessing from the seventh day and placed it on the day which was to replace it. But when God bestows a blessing, it is forever. “…You, O Lord, have blessed it, and it will be blessed forever” (1 Chronicles 17:27). “I have received a command to bless; He has blessed, and I cannot change it” (Numbers 23:20). Your birthday, a memorial of your birth, can’t be changed, though you may celebrate it on a different day. Neither can the Sabbath, a memorial of creation (Exodus 20:11), be changed, though some may celebrate it on a different day.

    God instructed Moses to construct the earthly sanctuary, all its furniture, and the ark according to “the pattern” he was shown. (Exodus 25:9, 40) The ark was called the “ark of the covenant” (Numbers 10:33, Deuteronomy 10:8, Hebrews 9:4), and the “ark of the testimony” (Exodus 25:22), because in it Moses placed the tablets of stone on which God wrote His Law. (Exodus 25:16, 31:18) John, in Revelation 11:19, describes the scene before him when “the temple of God was opened in Heaven.” John saw the ark of the covenant in the heavenly sanctuary. David wrote, “Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens” (Psalm 119:89). It is safe to assume that God’s Law remains, contained within the ark of the covenant in the heavenly sanctuary.

    When God says, “The seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God” (Exodus 20:10), that ends all controversy. We cannot change God’s Word for our own convenience. “But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve” (Joshua 24:15)."
