The Truth as I know It 2
Howzabout this, since the origional Truth thread has 159 posts, and it is kinda annoying to have to go through them all if your away for a while. We can use this one to talk about how great things God does for us at sea, I would like to hear your stories.
I quite frankly like the idea Mike Hoyt came up with about e-mail at the end of our posts. I couldn''t come up with any reason that it wouldn''t be good. Jesus had a public and private ministry. He did all things well. He preached to tens of thousands at a time, even from ships, and healed everyone He touched, right in the front of everyone. And at times He put everyone out of the house for a healing miricle. If we use e-mail addy''s with our queries, we can speak to each other publiclly as well as privately. And if any one has anything to say for correction sake, shouldn''t it be done in private? As we all have the ability and opportunity to correct even our own selves in these queries if we say anything that is not right.
This IS a most excellent site for all sailors. From beginners to old salts. Part of my beginning in sailing was here, learning. Learning is a process.
I was kinda concerned about the allegations about 928 and myself, but not anymore. So I will just say this; "I bring the love of God. Nothing else. No not even the lust of the flesh. I didn''t perceive 928 as being like that. I perceived him as a man like my brother who is a knowledgeable kind of guy and has the right to have his word even as he has stated. I also thought he at least has this redeeming quality abut him in that he sacrificed going down to his boat, for the love of his wife, and worked on her car. For a moment, I thought I was about to see him get born again. Which is my favorite miricle.
And, I am telling you this, as Joan of Arc was to her fellows and none did think of her in an unseemly manner, So I am to my fellows and none think of me in an unseemly way. I have always chosen the occupations of Men; Preaching the Gospel since age 10, Commercial Real Estate, Sailing.
I am ok with that."
Fair Winds and Kind prayers as always,
