    Gee whiz. I hope he recovers fully. IIRC, he's in his 80's. He certainly did some fine gunsmithing, too. I still remember his Kentucky rifle he carved from scratch. And he reported his own personal TESTS, and not just opinion, repeated...

    Amen! Some of the finest Christians started out as devout atheists. C. S. Lewis is but a single example. Maybe Slug will find the Truth one day, or maybe it'll find him. I certainly hope so. He's a congenial sort, or so it seems. He'd be...

    Good point No. 1. I didn't mean to instigate dissension here. I only intended for us all to think, myself included, before posting. There are those here who see any comment that states an honest opinion, that counters their own beliefs, is an...

    Nope, but I can see how you'd see it that way. I have never put myself above or beyond anyone. Just defending my own personal beliefs. That's all. Why would you not expect that from those who think differently from you??? Your collection of...

    Again, this is a question that really has no answer. We can believe what we will, but no real answer is available that will stand up to real scrutiny. But then again, this belief may well be a stepping stone to a higher understanding, not only of...

    Amen, Ickisrulz! The mysteries make the reading and consideration of the scriptures so much more interesting and perplexing, keeping us humble and in our proper place with respect to God and Christ. I am aways amazed and gently prodded to keep...

    I don't think I'm alone in noting that many of the questions we all hear in discussions of theology are flawed and unanswerable. This is what deniers dote on! They try to convolute every belief we have as Christians, tangle our concepts up and...

    You know, in reviewing this thread, it comes to me that this is one of those unanswerable questions because the question itself is flawed. It ASSUMES that God DID create evil, which I believe to be a denial of all that God truly is. God is light,...

    Nope. Not at all. Your grandiose view of yourself and your "opinions" is glaring. You make a statement, and THEN expect nobody to counter it, and that everyone should meekly accept your word as the "last word," and the absolute truth? My,...

    Dverna, I sincerely don't mean to put you or your rasoning down, but to me, this is the kind of question that's akin to "how many angels can dance on the head of a pin." The only real answer to it is "We don't know." We are often too reluctant to...

    DT, you so often ask questions that seem to reveal that you've never really given your life to Christ. You try to "reason it out" by virtue of the facilities in your head. But reason alone will never lead to understanding or accepting Christ. To...

    Wow! Some great and wonderful thoughts there. So often we try to figure out God and His will by relating it to our own experiences, but that's a pipe dream. His experience is so much broader and different than ours, we have to set our sights on...

    Thanks for the responses, guys. What I'm looking for is a semi-finished stock, maybe with some upgraded wood. My gun is also a .35/.303 like W. R.'s, and I've always had a liking for the old Brit rifles. Also, does anyone know of a good...

    IMO, the best repair job on aluminum is to have it Ceracoated. You can even pick a color if you're so inclined. It adheres better and protects the finish and surface MUCH better than anything else available. But if you want it to look "original,"...

    Slug, your thinking is very narrow and constrained. God made man to have a will of his own. It seems very logical that a true God would not want mere mechanical expressions of worship and praise, but the genuine thing that can emanate ONLY from...

    The best summation of the conflict that goes on within most of us (believers) again and again, until we mature and REALLY give our lives to Christ. He's always in control, and it takes a while for most of us to learn to accept that. We like to...

    Our church records every service and puts them on Youtube, so we can watch them repeatedly if desired, and whenever we can get the time to watch. It's working out very well so far. And no, it's not quite the same, but when the mind and spirit are...

    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...
