Wife gets vengeance on husband for pranks.

I guess this whole family's on high alert about the other members being "armed" so one of their tactics is to have weapons delivered into their hands without their victim seeing -- dropping from the ceiling, etc.

Husband enlists daughter in plot to shoot wife.

Nope!

Nope!

More of the family shooting each other.

And more.

And still more.

The children are targets too.

Kids get involved with a lot of weapon hand-offs.

Here's what everyone must be wondering about: The clean-up. There's a lot of cleaning up.


Wife getting in position to get vengeance on husband, for the behind-the-refrigerator shot. These ambushes take a lot of work and preparation.

27 Re Sidebar, Venus and Saturn:

I've got my new telescope arriving this evening (in theory, all the things are late or lost all the time).

It's this insanely cool compact digital smart telescope, that's cheap AF. Called the Dwarf II, it's getting rave reviews and compares favorably with the cassegrain types and reflectors. I took all kinds of astronomy in college and don't remember squat. This thing you just tell it to point at "X" and it will track it. All works with your smartphone/tablet and takes pics of course.

It wasn't supposed to arrive until mid feb, so now I can hopefully observe the green comet! Now that I live out where there's less light pollution, I'm really looking forward to it. If I get into it, I can certainly upgrade while using this little guy to backpack/carry easily.

Yep. Legacy of the Force. It's the series where Han and Leia's oldest son Jacen goes insane and becomes a Sith Lord. No happy endings here. At the end of the day, it's basically about a family that is devastated by loss and grief. But they also devastate BILLIONS of lives in the process...

The bear was completely tracking him. You could see as he moved away the bear moved towards him. People don't understand how fast a bear can move through water. Compared to a human, it's like a bad dream where your feed have cement bags tied to them. No bueno. As soon as the bears move in, you move out. That, or make sure you've got the 10mm pistol out.

60 > I mean its just common sense. if you claim to have faith but do not change or show any actions that demonstrate that faith, you do not have saving faith. Not exactly puzzling. Has nothing to do with salvation.

It's bizarre to me how stuck people get on the idea that you can't work your way into heaven, so they conclude work has nothing to do with salvation.

Like you said, it's common sense. You do everything you can. You will fall short, but God knows your heart and will make up the shortfall if He determines you've followed the Gospel to the degree He knows you can.

No, you can't do it without Jesus' sacrifice making up for the sins in your life. Yes, you have to do everything you can to incorporate Jesus' saving grace in your life via repentance.

So many people get stuck in this completely illogical la la land where you can't save yourself but you need to accept Jesus but you can't save yourself but you need to be baptized but you can't save yourself but you need to practice pure religion but you can't save yourself but you must do works to have living faith but still your works have absolutely nothing to do with your salvation. Obviously they do.

I was talking about that verse, we can discuss the idea of working your way into heaven or not, but that verse and its context obviously are contrasting people with genuine faith that shows its self through works and those without it, trying to encourage believers to live out their faith.

That's about sanctification, not justification. Trying to prove works righteousness with that is doing violence to the passage and James' entire point.

I saw a true crime show in which a rural judge was having trouble paying the bills so he and his adult son started a side hustle of undocumented pharmacology. When they had trouble with accounts recievable, they couldn't sue, so they sent a box full of packing peanuts and one live copperhead snake to the overdue debtor.

98 I was talking about that verse, we can discuss the idea of working your way into heaven or not, but that verse and its context obviously are contrasting people with genuine faith that shows its self through works and those without it, trying to encourage believers to live out their faith.

That's about sanctification, not justification. Trying to prove works righteousness with that is doing violence to the passage and James' entire point.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at January 23, 2023 07:59 PM (0hOvj)

Nobody adheres to "working your way into heaven".

Catholics, per the Council of Trent believes that justification is by faith and sanctification is through works/material processes(and/or purgatory). At the time it was referred to as "the second justification" to clarify.

The error that Catholics fear some may fall into is the notion that faith is a belief in an intellectual proposition. Faith, meaning to trust, involves acting with confidence in certain things.

Hence a man without intellectual awareness of God may have faith in God when choosing righteousness over profit or self-preservation.

It sounds like you have some understanding that acknowledges Man's part, but at the same time completely dismisses it.

153 They believed that in all humanity God has only chosen 186,000 as the elect. He will grant you Grace through acceptance of Jesus as Lord and Savior, but you will never know you are among the elect until you know. Everyone else goes to hell. And, since God never makes a mistake, grace are elect status are irrevocable no matter how shitty of a human being you are afterward.
Well, living a good Christian life is hard. It takes work to fight human nature every day. If it makes no difference to my grace, what is the point. You do it because you want to, they say. And what is the point of God granting Grace if he, by odds, is just going to cast me into hell anyway? I guess it is a slightly better hell?

Rebecca has been visibly in pain ALL day. The doctors and nurses were finally able to get her flat onto her bed (from the chair) to get an X-ray.

The hip is completely dislocated out of the new socket.

We are waiting to hear from the surgeon where we go from here; she has been fine up until today. The staff has gone above and beyond to take care of Rebecca the ENTIRE time that she has been here.

We always knew that this was a possibility; now we move forward into uncharted (for us, anyway) territory.

We know that Rebecca is in excellent hands all around, so now we wait.

182 [Calvinists] believed that in all humanity God has only chosen 186,000 as the elect. He will grant you Grace through acceptance of Jesus as Lord and Savior, but you will never know you are among the elect until you know. Everyone else goes to hell. And, since God never makes a mistake, grace are elect status are irrevocable no matter how shitty of a human being you are afterward.
Well, living a good Christian life is hard. It takes work to fight human nature every day. If it makes no difference to my grace, what is the point. You do it because you want to, they say. And what is the point of God granting Grace if he, by odds, is just going to cast me into hell anyway? I guess it is a slightly better hell?

192 Paul is talking about the Mosaic law. Paul was charged with ministering the Gentiles (Cephas converted Jews). After Paul founded the church in Galatia, Cephas and some of his ministers came in and convinced the former gentiles that they needed to first convert to judiasm, and comply with Jewish law before becoming Christians. Paul rebukes them, and says that people formerly were under guardianship of the mosaic law, but now that Christ has come, we are all saved as brothers in faith.

That was discussed at the Jerusalem council. Some insisted that gentiles needed to first conform to all of the mosaic laws, including circumcision. Cephas (Peter) agreed with Paul that conversion was not necessary, but it would be better if the circumcised converted the circumcised, and the uncirced, converted the gentiles. This was Paul's assignment.

Strictly speaking, while it is not heavan that is finite, most Christian sects afaik believe the people who go to heaven are known in advance due to God being omniscient. This is held by Calvinists to contradict free will(and so they conclude there is no free will and things are predetermined) while other sects try to resolve this with other theories.

This was the view of the main church in Jerusalem (under James?) in the early Church and Paul got into a discussion / fight over it. The ex-Jews to still Jew communities there got caught up in the Jewish Revolt in the 60-70 AD period and lost their influence if not their lives as fallout from the war. After that it became better to emphasize distinctions from Jews and after the *next* Jewish revolt it got worse.

This treats it as a pure yes/no, which is not really how people experience it.

It takes far more faith to be a martyr than to lend a small amount of aid. And generally this is something you work on and develop over time.

Using Moses as an example, though he has a far amount of faith in God, when he strikes the rock a second time to get water, he shows weakness in faith at that moment. He falls back on a method he has seen before instead of trusting what God told him to do. It's very human but also clearly illustrates that this isn't just an absolute yes/no that we are strong in at all times or strong in never.

There's a lot of theories about how to estimate the number. "more than the number of fallen angels" suggests meeting the criteria that Christ's kingdom would be larger than Satan's while also satisfying other aspects of his approach.

It is common to hold that roughly one third of the angels rebelled, using Revelations's 1/3rd stars wiped from the sky as the basis.

If I were to put forth an optimistic argument, I see no reason that the proportion of men to side with God would be less than the proportion of angels.

There are six slots in heaven and everyone is really saved are equally silly. We humble ourselves before God and beg forgiveness. One is not secretly begging forgiveness when one spites and hates the word of God.

Dante is a secular heresy if taken seriously as a work of cosmology for the faith, one of the troubling things to me as a youth helping refugees to pass the citizenship and language tests was the lack of salvation for the Buddhists.

Though my favorite in this particular case might be the judge refusing to extend voting hours, even with the election authority admitting to large functional failures at polling places. Not certain, but don't think such a request (and they are almost always premised on nothing more than long lines to vote, not enough time left, blah blah blah) has ever been denied in my lifetime.

2 Look: I, Paul, say to you that if you accept circumcision, Christ will be of no advantage to you.
3 I testify again to every man who accepts circumcision that he is obligated to keep the whole law.
4 You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace.
5 For through the Spirit, by faith, we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness.
6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love. (Galatians 5:2, ESV)

304 Pho is something I leave to the pros. A good broth can take days to make. But I've been lucky to have access to excellent restaurant pho over the years. Actually no place in Vietnam bested my couple old favorites in the US.

Other Vietnamese stuff I've also drifted away from, things one can do at home pretty easily. Good caramel pork and green papaya salad with the spicy jerky, old stand-bys I haven't made in eons.

310 And banh mi. A staple I haven't had in a while. The Great Idiocy broke a lot of patterns.

Wonder if the banh mi "fast food" pilot project by - not sure, maybe Yum! Foods, parent of a few major chains? - worked out. I recall they were going to try it in Orange or LA County. Orange County they'd be going up against a lot of established independents, plus the Lee chain.

311 It's a bit of a pain in the patootie, but you can make it at home. I made mine with the little meatballs. Boys loved it. I should have made a triple recipe and frozen a bunch.

If you make it at home, is it really pho, or might it be Pheaux or possibly faux?

316 The thing about banh mi is the formula is pretty simple but demanding. You need just-out-of-the-oven fresh baguettes, and it needs to be cheap. The two main things. Of course fillings matter but those might be less of a challenge than those other things.

Posted by: rhomboid at January 23, 2023 09:33 PM (OTzUX)

317 In the before times, you could get a banh mi for 4 bucks and a huge bowl of pho for another five.

Add a ton of Siracha and there's the cure for the common cold.

Correct, and I believe the passage. I am highlighting the idiocy of "Paradise has only two seats and you ain't got one", the pre-destination and God's omniscience coupled with his omnipotence means I have a perpetual license to asshole since somehow *I* got the golden ticket!" and a workable faith that is not ludicrous on the surface. Despite my ramblings and flippancy I take the successof western civ because of Xianity seriously.

339 It's this insanely cool compact digital smart telescope, that's cheap AF. Called the Dwarf II, it's getting rave reviews and compares favorably with the cassegrain types and reflectors. I took all kinds of astronomy in college and don't remember squat. This thing you just tell it to point at "X" and it will track it. All works with your smartphone/tablet and takes pics of course.
