Doug is deep

Recommended Posts

I mean really, who else could have come up with such amazing advice?

Doug, I want to ask you what are 1 or 2 things that families can do right now right where they are that could help them to begin discipling their family?

Doug:

I think the very first thing that needs to happen is moms and dads first need to cry out to the Lord, “Give me a vision to love my children more and to obey You.†And it begins by actually repenting from not doing it and it begins by crying out to the Lord saying, “Lord, help me.â€

And then the next step is really to gather your children and to say, “Kids, here’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to read the Bible every day.†We’re going to start there. We’re going to read the Bible. We’re going to go through the book of Proverbs. There’s one Proverb for every day of the month. We can do it that way.

Uh, and then we’re going to have a time for family worship. A lot of parents say, “Well, I don’t know how to do family worship.†It’s actually as simple as opening up the Bible, reading it, and just talking about it with your children and saying, “Kids, what are your prayers? Let’s go before the throne of grace and start praying together.†And it’s, it’s absolutely transforming.

So, Step 1, “Lord, help me. Lord, forgive me. Kids, forgive me.â€

Step 2, let’s just start opening the Bible. Let’s start reading. Let’s start praying. And thus will begin the great journey of discipleship which hopefully, will result in actual home education: walking and talking throughout the course of the day with our children.

Yep, he might have dug his own grave there.

My absolute number one thing that I cannot stand for about fundies is their attitude towards children. This is just... This shit keeps me up at night.

Lucky for them most of the people interested in this kind of lifestyle have zero critical thinking skills. The KJV bible is actually a very difficult thing to read and understand, even for someone with a college education, unless you are especially trained in classical literature (not to mention Hebrew and Greek and the translation process). I really think these people have no idea what they're reading when they read the bible. They take the interpretations by people like Doug Phillips and Michael Pearl to be true because they can't understand it for themselves.

Show me a fundie sheep with a degree in literature and I'll show you a ballet dancing elephant.

You're not alone. That was the first thing that popped into my mind.

My first thought was 'in the closet.'

I never thought of this aspect of KJV-only Bible using. I've had a KJV Bible since high school (I had children's Bibles before then), and there are a bunch of cheats you have to know--words or phrases that mean nothing to you unless you have someone explain hundreds of years old English. I was never dogmatically KJV-only reading, it just happened to be the version I had available most of the time, but I can see where if you weren't allowed to check other translations you could be easy to control when it came to interpreting the Bible. Interesting.

:lol:

I'm usually trying to be funny -- glad I could provide the straight line (you should pardon the expression) for others this time!

Nope. I thought "Doug IS deep, or Doug GOES deep?" Inquiring minds...don't really want to know :?

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
