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…"

Mike M. replied to Liam's discussion Advice on which translation of The Bible to read in the group Christian Men
"Which version to use depends largely on your own preferences/purposes.  It you're going into it without any particular basis to pick a version, though, I would recommend starting with the RSV.  It's one of the versions…"

Mike M. replied to Liam's discussion Advice on which translation of The Bible to read in the group Christian Men
"I suppose that a lot of users of the NIV would rather whole-heartedly disagree with me on this, but I would recommend being careful with the NIV... Mostly when looking at the verses that relate to the end times. The NIV was translated at the behest…"

Mike M. replied to Liam's discussion Advice on which translation of The Bible to read in the group Christian Men
"Officially, Rebekah is supposed to be right.  The Douay Rheims is supposedly a translation of the Vulgate.  If, however, you were to buy a copy of the Douay bible, you would almost certainly be getting the "Challoner…"

Mike M. replied to Kevin's discussion Will someone please explain Jesus to me? in the group Christian Men
"You can choose what purpose you want to pursue in life, but there's going to be one... in my experience, those who think that they serve only themselves are the most enslaved to whatever they've set themselves to. Christ's yoke is…"

Mike M. replied to Kevin's discussion Will someone please explain Jesus to me? in the group Christian Men
"We have ourselves to blame for the way things are.  When God created man, He put us in charge of the world and gave us a happy life in the Garden of Eden.  From there, we messed it up.  God is fixing it, giving us a way out of our…"

Mike M. replied to Larry's discussion Religion vs Relationship in the group Christian Men
"I think that relationships benefit greatly from ritual.  Every family, married couple, and even tightly knit organization, relies on ritual.  I see no reason for our relationship with God to be different."

Mike M. replied to Kevin's discussion Will someone please explain Jesus to me? in the group Christian Men
"The difference is that a girl who refuses to date me can presumably have a perfectly good life without me.  In God's total absence, we can't.  God isn't threatening to lock us in a dungeon... He's warning us that life…"

Mike M. replied to Kevin's discussion Will someone please explain Jesus to me? in the group Christian Men
"Well, it goes along with the perspective I gave that I don't believe in hard predestination.  For that matter, I don't even see that as a particularly interesting issue.  We clearly have free will, and the idea that everything is…"

Mike M. replied to Kevin's discussion Will someone please explain Jesus to me? in the group Christian Men
"There are a few issues at play in the question here, but I'll try to address what I think is the most fundamental part... I'll add that I'm not sure that all Christians would accept all of this. People get caught up on the idea of…"

Mike M. replied to Loki's discussion Decent bottle of booze for my best friend?
"For some future event, you should try bringing him a bottle of Zacapa rum.  I don't ordinarily want to sip rum straight, but I like sipping that one."

Mike M. replied to Loki's discussion Decent bottle of booze for my best friend?
"Car bombs are delicious... But it's a rare occasion when I'm looking to chug anything, and on those occasions, I'd probably prefer it not be too heavy."

Mike M. replied to Loki's discussion Decent bottle of booze for my best friend?
"One of my regular drinks involves mixing Guinness.  You basically mix Guinness with a black russian and then add a splash of Coke. "
