    Evangelism was indeed derived from the Great Commission, but more than that, it derives from the necessity of getting all to know the lord. Some, like Slug, are so deeply steeped in nihlistic cynicism that they are incapable of receiving the light....

    The Bible never addressed the issue of extraterrestrial life, so if it exists, I can only conclude that the same God who created the rest of the universe also created them. Confirming extraterrestrial life wouldn't have the least effect on my...

    I'm with Ick on this matter. Sometimes, if not regularly, we read the Bible with a very limited perspective. That can often lead us to conclude erroneously, and this, I believe, is one of those times. God is perfect. Therefore, He CANNOT...

    Thanks, Wayne. You're right. Fear is insidious and terribly destructive. That's one of the great values of Christ's love and His promises. If we accept His offer fully, we have nothing left to fear. Nothing, not even death, can harm us. At...

    The Lord knows every secret we try to hide in our hearts. He knows how and when we're tempted, and he knows when we give in to it. But He also provides redemption for us if we confess our sins and turn away from them, too. Truly, we worship a...

    You're in my prayers, Bazoo, and your family and friends as well. Things like this affect a lot of folks. Keep the faith, and remember, a Christian has nothing to fear and everything to look forward to if it's the worst. God never intended for us...

    while not needed we used a wipe of soap on brass and copper. Beeswax also works. It helps improve the surface finish and stop any chip galling. Not a big deal but makes a nicer looking part. We just touched the bar to the part an slid along length...

    one draw back is the lowered wages for several weeks before may have a negative effect on you unemployment benefits since they are based on wages. The extra weeks worked are nice. If your wages and dependants are enough to still draw the top limit...

    One issue with the older pistols and porous metals is the oils that have soaked into them. This is an advantage from preventing rust. But when bluing can create problems. A light sanding or stoning then give it a light acid cleaning followed by a...

    Find the compression that makes the powder burn the best, as you work up in compression you will see fouling drop. A good BP lube like SPG or emmerts improved can make a big difference. Also a bullet that carries enough lube for the barrel length....

    I thought those were chambered for 44 spl, not magnum. Could be mistaken, I wanted one when they came out but never could swing it. Guess they're pretty rare by now.

    For smokeless patching I use 16# green bar printer paper. Size .452, patch, lube, size to .460 and load. The Marlin doesn't have much throat so not much patch will stick out but make it enough to just start to jam when you close the lever. This...

    Yes, you will need a tool to compress and hold the mainspring cap while you disconnect. Then allow a controlled retract to let the pressure off the spring. I would replace the spring as well as the seal. I have used a bar clamp for the task. See if...
