    Lord knows I'm weary and carry heavy burdens. I've been running my business for 12yrs now. That can bring burdens, lol.. One thing I do know is that I am completely dependant on God for direction. Completely dependant on him for the many blessings that honestly man could never bring. Being in his will is not only wonderful but actually quite stress relieving knowing I'm not in control of my life, this has been the best free will choice I've ever made! And when I do get in a bind I know and fully understand that I can do ALL things THRU Christ Jesus that strengthens me...

    Its even more prevalent in our society when many Christians are labeled as intolerant or prude but that is sometimes the stigma we have to bear in the name of Christ, but no matter what afflictions we go through as long as Christ is with us, who can stand against us!

    Yeah, I get it. It's probably quite hard finding the balance. I guess it would be better to do encouraging things and devotionals like this, as opposed to in your face sermons. I guess there is a time and place for each, but an online forum where you run a business too, is maybe not the beast for challenging sermons.. 😂

    Thank you brother. I'm always looking for ways to reach out without pissing people off or coming off too preachy. But yes, there's no doubt, none of this would exist without the Lord's direction and grace in my life.

    Ex-addict myself to certain things, but still struggle with others things to this day. God is great and merciful, neverending in love and faithfulness to the broken. You should do more of these man, or somehow use this platform a little more? not sure how though? I am just pleased to see such a brilliant bit of software being led by a guy who is Christian and openly one.

    Just giving you an idea of what I've been working on, lately. So far, I have 28 new NES game bezels made. Still need to add TV frames for the Thin TV and Thick TV sets. Just stopping in to give you guys a heads-up for the work in progress.

    I have the same curse, brother (bipolar mother and bipolar blood). But it's also a blessing at times, as we can cope and know how to deal with all kinds of different people.

    Thank you virtute! Personally, our family is looking to move to Colorado here soon so can always use prayer on that whole process. Can I pray for you in any way?

    Hi Jason. I have reflected about this in the past, I need to say I am an atheist but my reflection doesn't really base upon that. I feel like we are predisposed to prejudice due to survival instincts. Think about it and I will put an example: You are walking on the street at night, not that many people around. You see two guys some steps in front of you standing there, watching you. My first reaction would be to judge them as potential threats even when I have no actual evidence they are dangerous. I think this reasoning is more subconscious than conscious. Mathematically it is more likely for those two unknown guys to be a threat than a third age woman you found on the street. I hope my words are not misinterpreted. I personally think stereotypes suck but the judging problem really is something deeper than just an emotion or thought. Of course, one can judge a person but that doesn't mean you need to materialize that judgement towards said person and insult him/her like that. Animals show this behavior. For example if you walk towards a group of birds they will label you as a threat and fly away even when you are not trying any harmful action. It is just survival. We as humans and conscious beings, have the ability to overcome instincts. So as you said, we can choose to reduce or eliminate this instinct. I just don't know if eliminating it completely would be the best thing to do.

    Thanks Temp. My heart goes out to you for being in that situation. We similarly refuse lots of traditional health practices because of the side effects (and we recognize the corruption of the health system in the US). I'm sure I can't fully understand what you're going through, but I can relate. Hit me up if you ever need to talk. Hang in there.

    Hey Jason, Nicely put, it is always to have a good reminder not to judge others and especially when we judge brothers in Christ because a lot of times, we see someone's else's sin but not the blatant obvious one that we partake in. Elliot

    Yeah I was talking more about that type of judgement (more like danger prevention as you said). I do not like to judge someone just by race, or anything like that. I am actually sad by all the things that happens in your country as I have two Muslim friends living in the USA and I know they get bullied a lot because of people judging them. If you were referring to that type of judgement in your main post I 100% agree with you. Thanks for your kind words and don't let your past define your future actions and thoughts.

    Sure, I can understand that. There is certainly a difference between looking out for safety (trying to predict if someone is going to be a problem) and judging people. It's definitely possible for us to love someone while at the same time doing our best to assess whether they're dangerous and protecting ourselves. Knowing you, Clive, I've definitely seen your character as one of empathy and love; I don't think I've ever seen you judge anyone before.

    Thanks, Clive. We are definitely predisposed to judgement, but I choose to take an approach that disagrees heavily with the majority of the world on this matter. If I were to be truly judged for my past, I would not survive; I've made mistakes that would condemn me to prison or worse. I choose to do my absolute best to replace all judgement in my life with love, rather than to play a hypocrite and judge people for things when I've probably done worse. I appreciate the discussion, though. We are likely to have some very different viewpoints because I base my ideologies on the teachings of Christ rather than the teachings of the world.
