It's your last chance to DO HARD THINGS!

Al Mohler and Randy Alcorn???? First that means that they're shelling out big, big, big money, at least, for Al Mohler. I don't know what you'd have to pay to get Randy Alcorn.

I think that Al Mohler makes sense when he talks about most doctrine (except that concerning women and wanting to turn the church into Calvin's Geneva, except that they might not burn anyone at the stake. I think of Randy Alcorn as a has been, and I think he was incompetent when he was in his prime.

Is this not a thing for young people? If so, why do they have old fossils (in terms of teens, cause Al's not too much older than me) speaking at this thing? Would you not want to get younger people who are competent in a topic? There are plenty of people who are 20 years younger than both of these men who are very learned and competent in the same areas.

Has anyone actually been to one of these or know more about them? Maybe I'm missing the point about what goes on. Sitting still to listen to Randy Alcorn sounds like a hard thing to me. Maybe that's the hidden meaning?

I'm astonished that they've made so much money doing this that they can shell out the bucks to bring in Al Mohler to wine and dine.

I was SO sure, before I clicked this post, that it was going to be a final call for sign-ups for a manly romp on the Amazon :lol:

I went a different route and thought it was a message from Mount Laundry sitting in my bedroom waiting to be washed. :oops:

I'm ashamed to admit I knew what it really meant. :oops:

I checked out the conference info and it ain't cheap to attend one of those things, but I'm sure that after paying for the venue and guest speakers, the twins paid for their college tuition and probably some property in Hicksville, Oregon to boot.

I do have to hand it to Brett and Alex: unlike most of the other fundies, they appear to have the ability to analyze and don't always toe the party line when reviewing a book. It's refreshing to actually see disagreement and argument on doctrinal points.

Aside from that ghastly "stumbling block" sex survey (the thing was a "stumbling block" in and of itself), the kids are better than 99.9% of the fundies out there; I might even label these guys fundie-lite. I agree with almost nothing they purport, but I wish them good luck in their adult endeavors all the same.

I suspect that Alex and Bret attended Patrick Henry for free, so the school could cash in on their fundie-celebrity status. Nothing to substantiate this, though. And I agree that they have raked in enough bucks to pay for their own school if it was not in fact comped by PH.

I'm sure that their half crooked dad taught them well and pulled plenty of wheeling and dealing on their behalf.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
