Then 1 John was written by an elitist.

It's like you people don't even know what the Bible says.
You claim you have superior knowledge, yet you challenge these plainly written texts in the Bible that anyone with eyes can see for themselves.
what part of 1 john says that.

i would also that an apostle could be elitist and its justified. i wouldnt question an apostle.

Let’s see

My dad is possibly on his deathbed, and as of midnight last night, no family members are aloud to go to the hospital.

I am any minute away from being sent home to work at home. I take my computer home every night because i do not know when I will be told to not go back to the office

Have not been to church or study group in two weeks. As everything is closed down and certain people are afraid (plus I have spent the last week in the hospital ICU then CCU with my dad?

Oh and we got three inches of rain last night, My basement is flooded..

God is great!! If I did not have God and his peace. I would have lost it..

How about you sis?

I am happy that with all you are facing at this time you have HIS peace. I went through the same thing with my mum and HE gave me HIS peace too.

Keep up your testimony. God is good even when our circumstances are not. I will lift your father up in prayer right now brother.

I am so sorry to read this about your father, I know how hard that is.... so hard that you cannot be with him.
I will keep you and him in my prayers for sure.

Well, if it would stop raining I would be much better, at least I could get outside and do yard work, go for more runs etc.,

I am thankful I am prepared for events like this more or less.

Being house bound definitively not fun though, the stories of what I hear from people who work in hospitals is not good and our numbers are low still.

Yes, God is more than gracious towards us in all things.

I do think this shall pass and we will not run out of toilet paper for sure!! :)

And hopefully there will be "grace" from others also when we all look like this in 18 months from cutting our own hair...... :D:D

*Warning*: I am NOT a barber. I therefore cannot guarantee the results will be satisfactory in the event you hand me the scissors and ask for a haircut. RESULTS MAY VARY.

I have NEVER heard the term elitist used in my entire 43 years of being a Born Again Christian. WHAT IS IT?
