      Hi questdriven: Sorry; I like others on the site am having technical problems; I know Stovebolts is beavering away valiantly, trying to resolve them! I think you kindly replied to my last two heavy metal posts, but your replies won't load (at least, on my screen). Blessings.

      Hi questdriven:

      Sorry; I like others on the site am having technical problems; I know Stovebolts is beavering away valiantly, trying to resolve them!

      My last post to you was this: 'PS: Thinking more now, in some heavy metal there is a fulness and a depth that reminds me of J S Bach-style counterpoint, ostensibly very 'classical'. I remember how when I was younger than you are now, J S Bach kind of grew on me (and some of his work is combined with Scripture lyrics).

      (Thanks for your patience, [MENTION=89910]questdriven[/MENTION] , in bearing with these reflections of mine, because it reminds me a bit of my own sense of musical development years ago.)
      Blessings.'

      I think you kindly replied, but your replies won't load (at least, on my screen). Blessings.

      Hope your trip plans go well, anyway. It must have been an encouragement that your mom was amenable to coming to your chosen new church where you feel you are being fed by the Lord through His Word.
      Sometimes there isn't any rhyme or reason for the amount of response notifications. I was amazed that the new, revised tatt thread which one of the other mods started the other day because the previous one was too heavy with pages, has 'mushroomed' so much in the past days. (Maybe is IS a topical subject that folk want to discuss more, despite the criticism of some folk.) Blessings.

      Hi; hope your evening has been good. The forums seem to have been busy, including the KJVO one. This one has, aslo; I don't quite understand what the latest poster is saying, but it's interesting: http://www.christianforums.net/showthread.php?t=53217&p=830587&viewfull=1#post830587 (you might not particularly have any more to say here). Hope your mom is doing okay, and your brother. Nice that she came to your b-day event at your new church. Blessings.

      Ty for the link. I took a brief look, and s/he seems to be arguing for the retention of the complete Mark 16. One of the sources is F H A Scrivener, who wrote a lot about textual matters and also edited Received Text editions of the Greek NT. Personally I would tend to regard Scrivener as basically sound. (I've not given the article a detailed reading, though.) Blessings.

      Well, exactly. If you keep up with your reading and Bible study, the Lord buids up His people in their knowledge of Him and their walk. Blessings.

      Hi there. This is a bit broader than the topic of KJV Only. First for the issues involved they are significant and worthy of wide reading; it's good to avoid fixations: some people are 'in your face' KJV Only! KJV Only! KJV Only. Then there are other people who are KJV Never! KJV Never! KJV Never! It reminds me of the fixations (from opposite ends) in discussions about tattoos (yes, really). Some people adamantly think: You should get a tattoo! You should get a tattoo! You should get a tattoo! Others say: You must never get a tattoo! You must never get a tattoo! You must never get a tattoo!
      Often rather than just about the issue concerned (whatever it might be), it's also about mindset. And those of a particular mindset can easily - and quickly - swing from one extreme to another.
      Blessings.

      PS: And unlike some Christians, the atmosphere in the parlor isn't likely to worry you unduly, seeing as tattoos don't 'bug' you 'in the least'. Now in your third decade, you're surely entitled to have your own sense of aesthetic appreciation, anyway. Blessings.

      Oh your mom was with you, was she, when you passed the parlor? Well I see maybe why you didn't stop.

      Sounds like you'd find a visit inside the parlor to see the designs, without obligation, rather interesting. Like you say, it's a question of learning to appreciate the designs. Blessings.

      Hey, congrats to an adult woman in her third decade now! :)

      Sounds like your mom can now see that there's good at your local church, too. This is progress.

      Think you'll pluck up the initiative to go in the parlor you mentioned and see the design you thought was neat, and others, too, a little more closely? (Parlor folk actually tend to be happy for people to look at their designs, without pressure or obligation, because it would be unprofessional to pressurize visitors.)

      Blessings.

      Glad it's going well. It's the activities in the Word that reallt set the tone for fellowship and witness in a local church.

      BTW, a mod re-started the tattoo thread today and already it's run to several pages; you might just be interested to check it out, since (a bit like with Christian rock music) your views may have developed a bit in recent years and months. Blessings.

      Thought it looked new, anyway!
      How's your new(ish) church going, anyway? hope they have good Bible studies that you can profit from these days. Blessings.

      PS: My guess would be that in the future you'll also develop new musical tastes as well, while retaining some or many of the ones you already have; for example, you said you like 'Sweet hour of prayer' and I guess it's because of its associations for you and your own valuing of prayer.
      Hope you had a good morning in church.
      FYi, replied to some of your recent posts:

      Oh interesting, then, it seems like with your own personal musical journey, while you were also entering adulthood, that maybe it was Disciple that more than other bands turned you into a supportive, hard rock woman, then.

      (Like I said before, 'Battle Lines' by Disciple is oustanding hard rock, with clear, Biblical lyrics.) Blessings.
