It has been quite a while since I posted here on pleo. To be honest, I don't know for sure why I stopped. I plan to return to posting here from time to time though.
I maintain my facebook page, but it will be good to keep up with brethren here as well.
So, hello again to you all!
I want to invite any and all to http://www.heavenlysonlight.org/forums/
This is a site that was created by a consiberal friend of mine, and it contains many Bible study helps.
Also, it contains numerous discussion forums which are open to discuss Bible topics. He also is posting a copy of the Garner-Jones Debate on church sponsored social meals.
I think it would be a good idea to get some sound brethren there who may have an influence upon those who may be seeking the truth.
I have posted my response to Brother Garner, including the charts. Feel free to peruse the debate and let me know what you think. What do I need to add, or say differently? Also any other general comments.
This is the last straw. The city commission of Dumas is ridiculous. In the time I have lived here they have:
1.Voted to put the families of Dumas at risk by voting to put a drug rehab center in a residential area- Lowering property values of the homes in the general vicinity.
2. Turned several streets in the city including the street in front of my house into a one-way street- Lowering property values on all the homes on those streets.
3. They voted to allow a low income govt. subsidized housing complex in the west end of town, which substantially lowered property values of homes there.
4. An now are planning to violate my, and other citizen's property rights. They want an ordinance that will tell people they can not store their travel trailers in their front lawns, and that that people cannot work on cars in view of the open public. And I guarantee you Their excuse will be that they don't want to lower property values! why in the world do we all the sudden care about property values?
"The very Idea!"
Rest assured, if they pass this I will do all that I can to see each and every one of them defeated in up coming elections, even if it means me running myself.
I'm opposed to the ordinance, but if they want to pass it, at least send it to a referendum!
The Debate continues and David has posted his first negative. I have begun writing my response, but feel free to email me with comments or things that sick out and need to be addressed. Also, if you have any ideas of how to answer or word arguments I will welcome those also.
Anyhow, thanks for following the Debate.
