Blue, you are completely wrong, and have a bad outlook based on your limited knowledge of "Bible Study". Money accumulated equals a secure lifestyle, and believe it or not the ability to help out others. I am not ignorant. My family was living hand to mouth, and if I hadn't applied my God given talents and profited, then I wouldn't have had the money available to help out a friend. That friend had founded a local ministry, that in turn was able to build and supports an orphanage in Kenya. I anonymously dumped thousands of dollars of cash in envelopes into his ministry without him ever knowing who donated it. I am proud to say that last Saturday, he was the first person to stand and say a few kind words at my Mother's memorial service. So you see, hard work, and the money it generates are not always evil.

Dave Ramsey states the very same message. Blue should take cues from intelligent Christians

Woody, I can tell your Biblical literacy is a product of organized religion...........

I've heard you say how we should hunker down and defend ourselves against evil people if we're still around in the end-days when things get bad..........Stock-up on weapons-and-ammo and food and protect our family..........That is way contrary to what the Bible tells us to do - seriously Woody, we are not to do that............I can show you the Scripture that says so, if you'd like me to..........

Do you want me to?

Yep, we figured we had another year or two together, but it didn't work out like that. She went quickly and at home. I was fortunate to be there when she breathed her last breath, and I was able to tell her I loved her. I still look across the yard at her house and keep thinking she is going to step outside and putter about in the flower beds. Kind of a numb feeling.

blue is  ... out there

Secure lifestyle from money, enough to own your property.  Still drive my 2000 suburban 150k miles, because I like it.  Have been able to pay for both kids college education and pass along zero debt to them. 

You don't have to lust after money to make a few smart moves that sets you up in a position to help your family lead a decent life.

If the bible says thats not ok, too bad.

The Creator told the Jews wandering after being freed from slavery in Egypt that He would provide food for them every day...........But, they were not to hoard any of it for the next day - don't keep any for the next day...........He would provide more food for them the next day...........

That is the same the Creator will do for His followers who are still alive on earth during the plagues in the end-time.........His followers are to leave the cities and bring nothing with them but the clothes on their backs..........He will provide for them..........

Only Bible-believing followers will know the command of this prophecy..........

Bluedog, STFU. My Mother's duct taped study bible had been marked up with notes in the margins to the extent that the Pastor was in envy and taking notes. Your pontificating sanctimonious and self edifying bible thumping has turned more people away from Christ than the Devil could ever have hoped. I pray for you to stop fumbling around with your inner demons, and learn the way to follow a true and more humble path that doesn't include belittling everyone that doesn't sit in on your enlightened "study group". In conclusion, Piss off fellow sinner. Get yourself a soapbox, and get your sanctimonious ass out on a street corner in Vegas.

No Woody, false-teaching preachers have been turning folks away from the Bible and will continue to do so till the very end............

Matthew 24

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.


24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

25 Behold, I have told you before.

26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

 



Judaea means His followers...........

kiir- Have enjoyed the FJ. It will blast through 100k this year. Stocker that I have taken in some places that were beyond intended suspension setup and tires. Mostly street miles, but it has taken us on some excellent wilderness journeys. Seems every time we are on one of those narrow cliff, rocky trails, wife is on the downhill side.

She wanted an FJ when you bought yours. Look like Tonka Toys and I said, "No." Five years of her always glancing at FJs, I relented. Very glad. Haven't fixed anything in 90,000+ miles. Gas mileage sucks with the horrible aerodynamic profile. 20 MPG at 55 mph, but <18 MPG at interstate speeds.

Do you ever have people ask, "Is that a Hummer?"

Interesting Blue. Money is the root of all evil but churches are tax free some even asking for parishioners w2 to make sure they are giving enough. Some churches now actually send a bill to parishioners. The Vatican is one of the largest land holders in the world and have one third of the gold reserves available. Sure glad they hate money.

Bill mine is a 4X4 and maybe less gas mileage than yours.  Excellent curb jumper when in a tight spot, does get off the beaten path.  It rides so smoothly 10 years later down the highway, hard to believe it's 10 years old. Not asked about Hummer so much but many people have been curious about how it rides and asked about that blind spot.  They ask a lot about what it was called, FJ seems to puzzle many folks.  One lady told me she had grand-kids, could not tackle the blind spot and had to trade hers in.  I use turn signals, mirrors and look so often, never been in her bind.  Some very inquisitive folks about it early on, not as much now. 

Had what was called a Black Cherry [seen as purple] body and white roof.  I park under  an oak tree that has been roosted by a dule of doves for the past 5-6 years.  I painted it a dark dark gray roof with a deep blue body now and stay away from that oak tree as much as possible

p.s. was always a pickup owner, so I missed the bed space for 10 years.  Then I would have to borrow a truck or someone's trailer to haul.  Finally found the perfect 14 foot lowboy last year for my Kubota tractor and 'projects'.

Empty, blue has judged the church already and finds them to be corrupt.  He's a bible believer, not a church attendee.  He's the Church of Bluedog, who has no money.  He wasn't able to spend money wisely so he gave up on money

The Bible refers to the religious system as the city of Babylon.............Babylon was the richest and most corrupt city on earth before it was destroyed............And, the Bible warns us over-and-over to stay away from it...........

In Jesus' time on earth, religion was corrupt..........Jesus ridiculed and basically tore-up the inside of the Jewish temple because they were making money by selling stuff in the church.........When Paul set-up the first Christian churches, they became corrupted as soon as he left 'em.............Paul was constantly condemning, and encouraging, these churches through letters and with his appearances...........It didn't do any good..........

Anyone who draws a salary through a church is there for financial gain.............All true followers are to be preachers of the Gospel - and the message of the true Gospel is not for sale - it's free............

The  message of the message is that every one of us must read and study the Bible..........And, follow the Law of the Creator - not any religion or denomination which resides in the City of Babylon and spews out false-teaching............

Religious folks are waiting for the Anti-Christ to appear and show himself..........This is because of the false-teaching they're listening to..........

The Anti-Christ and his helpers are already here and have been here for a very long time.........And, they're fooling folks by-the-millions...........Those folks who are fooled will have the same fate as those doing the fooling...........There will be no excuse in being fooled - reading and studying the Bible is the only way to keep from being fooled...........

This is Biblical..........

Why folks disregard the fact that only Noah and his family were saved from the flood out of all the people on earth, well,..............And, why were only Lot and his family saved from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and all the others who lived there perished in the fire that destroyed the two cities?..........The answers are there to read and be found...........

That's why he is here, friends are against his commandments.  I always thought he was a man of his word, I'm deflated.  He says he follows the bible but then he can't keep from bearing false witness

Per cars, we purchased a new Jeep Grand Cherokee.  It is doing great on mileage and better than my Saturn Vue.  We have had a couple of snows and I have already made use of the 4x4 snow function.  This will be the last car I buy.  

Per wealth, I don't profess to be wealthy.  However, I don't need any more motivation to do well in life than to drive through the housing project I grew up in when we moved up here.  My dad, brother and sister all still live there.  My child will never know what it is like to have to live there.  All of the "wealth" we have gained is for her.  As an example, I ate lunch this past week for under $18.  I buy the cheapest salad our school offers and it has to do for me until my wife and I eat at night.  My wife and I have done well in stocks.  We own stocks invested in long term stocks and for over 30 years.  I never wanted to get rich quick.  Now, they have us in a position where I can retire after next year.  We have created a portfolio for our daughter and it is slightly more risky but not much.  As I have pointed out on here before, we had to pull some of our charity donation due to my lack of pay raises.  We will always find a way to give to St. Jude.  Maybe now, we can do more.  

Finally, I think that the mindset of most of us is to share what we gain.
