Hello, everyone! First off, I'm a born-again Christian, and I believe the Bible to be the word of God. Second, I'm husband to my childhood sweetheart, and I wouldn't trade our relationship for the…Continue
A place for gentlemen of all stripes who are interested in the broad field of Christian apologetics. If you are a thoughtful man interested in pursuing a more reasonable faith, or if becoming a pipe-smoking clone of C.S. Lewis is one of your greatest aspirations, then this is the place for you.See More
My brothers and I found a nest of the yellow devils in our yard one time. We poured disel fuel down there at night, then lit it off.
Good news: it took care of the nest.
Bad news: The fire department didn't think…"
"I think that a lot of people respect him for being a strong leader, as well as an avid outdoorsman. Policies aside, he is all man. There are many things in which I am opposed to Putin, but as I stated before, every strong leader has his/her…"
"You can't argue with the fact that he has won several high-level Judo matches. Some of his manly exploits may have been staged (such as tagging the tiger, etc), but he is still very much the outdoors type.
As much as I do disagree with…"
""sitting around pointing fingers at society and screeching out its sinfulness isn't advancing Christianity"
I beg to differ. Sometimes people need that "voice crying in the wilderness" to wake up and do something…"
"I guess you could call what my wife and I did courtship, though it was sort of modified. We started talking via email, then phone, after she sent my family a Christmas card. We'd known each other since 2nd grade so the card wasn't…"
"I trained at a dojo that taught Jui Jitsu, Karate, and weapons (several different arts mixed in there). One monthly price got you into as many or few classes as you wanted. I wasn't there to compete, but simply to learn how to take care of…"
"You can get a very reliable starter shotgun for pretty cheap (about $230, give or take). Mossberg 500s are great, and I plan to get myself one in the near future. Very customizable once you get comfortable with shooting it the way it…"
"I find the "dancing" of today quite repulsive indeed. It's no more than clothed sex moves, which any animal can do.
However, I think you'll be hard pressed to say that knowing your way around a swing, foxtrot, waltz, or…"
"I think that there's some truth to the essay, but I think that overthinking ways to reform that aspect of things can exacerbate that very problem. Trying to contrive artificial ways to get people to bond is exactly the kind of thing that…"
"I'd like to chime in to second this. I didn't believe that a crystal deodorant could possibly work, but I decided to give one a shot a few months ago after becoming tired of my clothes being ruined by antiperspirants.
A crystal is not an…"
"I see the change as less an elevation of political issues and more a lowering of traditional religious ones. If you look back to "the old days" when churches, to a large extent, were the communities in which people lived, communities…"
"I'd say go at it, especially as it's Christmas, a time when people tend to dress with a bit more frivolity (e.g. deliberately appalling Christmas jumpers. I have one with a snowman). In my head I'm imagining either the bow-tie, shirt…"
"I know it's a tad outdated, but this conversation caught my eye. I've had problems with boundaries with my family since before I got married and now that my son was recently born, it seems like the issues have resurfaced. For example, over…"
