    they are more like guidelines than rules of conduct.

    Some ministries foolishly preach saved by grace and OSAS and
    therefore allow lazy Christianity to flourish.

    I'd agree with this, but leave the OSAS to others to argue in other threads.I'd rather not see a derail,but I see the train a comin....

    People these days also love to play the victim and make everyone else out to be the bad guy.
    I'm not a bad guy. I'm just misunderstood.

    aw, sis, you went and messed with the 'rents!

    most parents have a hard time receiving the cold, hard truth we ain't perfect. lol

    of course, you were trying to help, and good looking out! maybe your heart/conscience is more tender, or it's something else i'd rather not speculate about... (nothing negative about you!)

    but, yeah. i'd like to think because they are so important to us, it hurts to hear we've goofed about our kids.

    but sometimes we're the ones being brats.

    I can't believe someone came in here using pirate talk.

    You'd never know from just looking at waggles; he doesn't look like a pirate...
    well not much.
    Maybe just a bit around the ears.
    He sorta has little sneaky pirate ears.
    But I'm almost certain pirates don't wear glasses.
    I mean, who could hit a pirate with glasses?
    Maybe that's what pirates do now...
    wear glasses so nobody will hit them when they're stealing your ship.

    I remember hearing about olden times, before America was a country -
    I heard all about it from Willie..
    and he said real pirates would never wear glasses because
    when they shot people, the lenses would get all covered up in little bits of the shot guy.
    I guess a pirate in olden times had to wear glasses at least once,
    or else they wouldn't have known that.
    But I guess it only happened once,
    and then the pirates all quit wearing glasses...

    until today.

    This isn't a popular solution, but it's the best one:
    Don't post your opinions on facebook, but if you do at least lock your page
    down so only certain people can see what you post, let alone respond to it.
    I don't post anything on facebook.
    I use it as a tool to see whether or not I want
    to associate and/or do business with people.

    I'd do that if it wasn't the most convenient way for the important people in my life to contact me.

    It's sad though that Facebook has gotten such a strong grip on people's lives. But I'd still prefer it rather than pay for overseas phone calls lol.

    Extremely different! I grew up not far from where the story took place.So I grew up with the series. And it really annoyed me that someone took an innocent childhood classic and twisted it in to some modern junk.

    2 Timothy 3: 1-5 (NIV)

    But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive,disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
