    I gave a short but focused response to the rapture issue as Paul discussed it in 2 Thess. Now you tell me you're not a devotee of pretrib rapture but you don't say a thing about WHY you're not a pretriib "devotee", OR anything at all about what you...

    You're right that the doctrines of eschatology are not neatly gathered in one small place to simplify it for casual examination by casual people and without study. In fact, that's what Biblical "study" is about as Paul put it to Timothy (2 Tim...

    My "cut and paste" is broken so I'll use exile's Thess. post to give a brief pretribulation defense: Paul had told the church at Thessalonica about the coming Rapture. They accepted the Rapture teaching but members of their group were dying...

    Anyone wanting to get a glimpse of the when/where/why the pretrib rapture "plot" got started needs to read and understand 1 Thess 4.

    Nor can I, but "last day" predictions isn't the topic, is it? And it should be quite easy for anyone to study what's written about end times without going crazy trying to predict the "last day". (I've known and learned a lot from several serious...

    Well said. It's not spiritual weakness or immaturity to study any part of the Bible. God is not immature. If he didn't want his people to study end times he would not have told us so much about those coming days. And He certainly didn't...

    Roger that. I've had ONE truly high grade (Swiss made) 6" vernier caliper since 1969. It's a great tool and very rugged but I rarely use it anymore - the scale has gotten too fuzzy to easily see. SO, in '93 I bought a 6" Chinese dial caliper...

    You're right. And you prompt a couple of laughable memories of some well meaning real life hunter dummies: 1. Hey Jim, you shoot a lot, tell us how far a rifle bullet will travel before it starts to drop. Jim says, "As soon as it clears the...

    I've not killed hundreds of southeastern deer but I have killed a few dozen, all with heart/lung hits from a variety of weapons. Only a few dropped right there and only one traveled as far as 75 yards. Most go unconscious within 50 yards and, head...

    I only have one lever action centerfire rifle, a 336 in .35 Remington I got used in 1978; I love it, deer don't. It's a hunting rifles, not for targets or plinking, so I don't load a lot for it. I got three boxes of Remington ammo for it, 60...

    "This Yankee guy" is wrong; solid lead IS NOT a poison. We have long had a lot of people, usually military vets, happily living with bits and pieces of lead scattered throughout their bodies with no "poison" harm.

    Note: RCBS means Rock CHUCKER (aka, a groundhog), not rock crusher. The first of the Rock Chuckers followed the more heavily built, and too expensive for simple reloading, bullet presses. A Rock Chucker is NOT a bullet press. After WW 2...

    Bee's wax is the actual lube. Neetsfoot oil doesn't spoil in storage. It leaves a very small bore residue and softens the wax for easy application on bullets. Pure soap (Murphy's) softens the fired crud and helps water clean it out. The...

    I've long loved the impressive wisdom of C.S. Lewis. I've read his Mere Christianity (twice), Screwtape Letters and the Narnia series but never the Great Divorce so I've not read that perceptive bit of his writing until now! Thanks. Hell is not a...

    That's true but I don't know why you speak as tho Lee is unique about that. All standard dies expand necks for proper diameter of the normal bullets for their caliber because the die makers (rightly) assume most will indeed be used for loading...

    Yes, many have misinterpreted what they have read but their errors change nothing for us today. The biggest hole I see in your "forget it" premise about the Lord's coming for His church is that you ignore the Biblical instructions for us to...

    I agree with you. And there's much more in Ezk38-39 that doesn't match. For prophecy to be from God it has to match - perfectly.

    Actually, if you keep your parts well wetted it can't dry so it can't congeal as a varnish! But it's really just a water "lifter" anyway! As a very light oil it does have some short term lube qualities but it's not intended to be much of a long...

    I've long suspected it was WD40 (or a similar quick-drying oil) that gummed up the excellent Rem 700 hunting rifle trigger and caused some accidental discharges and even a few deaths. Dry oil is called "varnish" ... and varnish is NOT a good gun...

    Not sure I understand what you mean, The shank of Lee's decapping stem includes the proper expander for the cartridge. No one's decapper-expander is going to expand the case mouths for easy bullet entrance; that's flaring (or "belling") and it...
