Mike M. replied to Pale Horse's discussion John Piper's Position on Defense and Guns in the group The Great Debate
"I think that that had more to do with deference to God's will than with self defense.  Jesus willed that He be taken so that He could fulfill the Father's plan... Peter was, albeit without realizing it, fighting against that plan.…"

Mike M. replied to Pale Horse's discussion John Piper's Position on Defense and Guns in the group The Great Debate
"There's a world of difference between someone who thinks that God wants them to, if possible, defend their community from a terrorist and someone who thinks that God wants them to murder anyone who disagrees with them on any point of…"

Mike M. replied to Penelope's discussion To circumcise or not? in the group Christian Men
"I don't believe that it is required of any Christian, whether gentile or Jew.  I think that St. Paul was pretty clear that Jewish Christians were no more "under the law" than gentile ones. I imagine that if I have sons, though,…"

Mike M. replied to Pale Horse's discussion John Piper's Position on Defense and Guns in the group The Great Debate
"I like shooting and I believe in self defense and gun rights, but I don't find his position particularly offensive.  My guns aren't for teaching people lessons; they're for target shooting, hunting and, in the unwanted and…"

Mike M. replied to Rick Shelton's discussion Question about allowing/disallowing refugees in the US in the group The Great Debate
"I'm in favor of letting more Syrians into the country, but the arguments that a lot of supporters of "refugees" are making are pretty clownish.  Syrians don't have an inalienable right to enter the US.  Whether they are…"

Mike M. replied to John Muir's discussion Visa requirements to enter the United States in the group The Great Debate
"I think that this is an issue that necessarily needs to be negotiated democratically.  It's easy for me to support immigration of farm laborers, janitors, etc., because they're not competing for my job... Their presence is an economic…"

Mike M. replied to Ben B.'s discussion M1 Garand, solid investment? in the group Riflemen
"I don't own one, but I've shot a friend's a number of times.  The first time, I went into it thinking that I was shooting it as more of a historical experience than a good shooting one, and boy was I wrong.  It was a delight…"
Dec 23, 2015
Mike M. replied to Brian S's discussion Advice in the group Riflemen
"The US is huge and there is a lot of good hunting in a lot of US states.  If you haven't planned your trip yet, which part of the country are you planning to visit?  From there, it would be easier to help you find good hunting…"

Mike M. replied to Dustin's discussion Proper course of action after a screw up
"You've apologized.  I would make some other apologetic gesture (getting the drink tab, getting him a decent cigar if that's his thing, or something along those lines).  But, at the point where you've apologized and done…"

Mike M. replied to Liam's discussion Advice on which translation of The Bible to read in the group Christian Men
"The revisions have been very controversial, but the translation was commissioned in the mid-fifties by the National Association of Evangelicals.  It was translated with an unreasonably large translating team, and, judging from the text, a…"

Mike M. replied to Liam's discussion Advice on which translation of The Bible to read in the group Christian Men
"I don't know that I'm sold on the position of modern scholars on that particular verse, but the difference is because modern scholarship suggests that the portion missing from the NIV was a later addition/"corruption" to the…"

Sir replied to Joshua M's discussion How important is your choice of college major (Particularly for Engineering)?
"Depends on the college.  Some are diploma mills and some are excellent.  Before someone says "like here," I'll say:  not like here.  Greater range."

Chuck Knight replied to Justin's discussion Tips on waking up earlier?
"It sounds like, at a fundamental level, your sleep quality is lacking. You say you sleep, but wake up exhausted and unable to function. Yes, time. Yes, daylight. Yes alarm clocks, yes, yes. But it all boils down to waking up because you're…"

Liam Strain replied to John Muir's discussion Now the time for a gas tax to pay off the national debt? in the group The Great Debate
"1. The US economy is not a household budget. Some principles do apply to both, but overall - comparing them, even as an analogy, fails on several levels.  2. Absolutely, the debt should be dealt with. Growing faster afterwards is possible...…"

Jack Bauer replied to John Muir's discussion Now the time for a gas tax to pay off the national debt? in the group The Great Debate
"Makes some sense.  If you overspend yourself into credit card debt ... cutting-up the credit cards cuts your effective income, and using your actual income to pay it off reduces does so further.  Less to spend because you already spent…"
