    Thank you all. Next week she was going in for another 4-6 days of investigative treatment. It was going to be our last hope. God decided she should not bear further suffering.

    This morning my finance's 4 year old granddaughter passed away. The little girl had a seizure and stopped breathing. Her mother, who worked in the medical field, tried desperately to bring her back. By the time the paramedics arrived, it was too...

    Gives me confidence in Ruger doing that your for Lloyd. They are more than fair. It must have been a serious problem for them to decide to destroy the gun.

    I estimate I have loaded 40-50,000 using 125 or 130 gr bullet with 2.5-2.7 gr of Clays. Surprisingly accurate at 30 yards out of the rifles...which is where I tested for accuracy for CAS. My fiancÚ loves shooting them. But with .22's back...

    I have found a church 25 miles from me that accepts Open Theism. It is a United Church of Christ. It will be difficult to leave my friends at my current church, but if they are friends, we will remain so.

    Ickisrulz, I agree with your distinction between the permissive will of God and His sovereign will. Many people wonder why God allows evil things to occur or natural disasters that kill so many I have no answers. I assume God has His...

    I do not hope for things that I know will come to pass as God has promised. His promises are assured. My hopes are both personal and less self centered. On the personal side....I hope I can be a better person. I hope to die without pain...

    Most of us will not make free will choices that affect the world, or God’s plan. We will affect ourselves, and our families...maybe our employees or out employer...etc etc. But the free will choices of leaders and governments may significantly...

    Good post. I saw a full mount of a Grizzly my deceased friend shot (think he used a .375 H&H). Anyone who hunts one with a pistol is nuts. I can see using a .44 or bigger as a back up but not as the primary weapon. And they say a 9mm isn’t...

    If God knows our free will choices before we make them, does that mean we are destined to make wise or foolish choices from the beginning of time. In essence, our free will Choices are preordained and known by God? If that is this case, is free...

    Like a few others, the Rugers do not feel right to me. But you need to handle the guns and decide for yourself.
