    So, they do believe in "Judge not lest ye be judged." Matt.7. [1] Judge not, that ye be not judged. [2] For with what judgment ye judge,ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to youagain. [3] And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? KJV And they are understanding that this is applied to them. They are just objecting to the Judge, which is not new. If they accepted the Judge, alas, all would be well for them. What does that leave those of us who do accept the Judge to do? Mourn over the lost. Continue to make available that which is clean and wholesome, without judgement, whether they accept that or not. And celebrate that there is Mercy AND Judgement at the same time. God is the God of AND, a tiny word that messes humans every time.

    A double-standard, as so many things seem to have these days. Sigh.

    Greetings! I joined a little over a year ago, said my hellos, took part in a few discussions, and then went silent. So, I'm back to try this again! I've had experience in the secular side of the publishing industry as a published author and editor, but God called me away from that about three years ago. I've been working on theological essays, picture books, middle grade, and epic poems. Stepping back into everything has been rather hard on me as God really brought me to my knees. I want to ensure that all I do is done with the intent of giving Him the glory, rather than myself. Most of my work has been for my own growth and amusement. My children are my audience. I don't know if I will seek traditional publication of any of my work. To be honest, I've had a rather hard time finding an agent who accepts Christian picture books, anyway. My goal at the moment is to write, and worry about all the rest later. I look forward to getting to know all of you, and I promise to stick with it this time. ~Emily

    I'm working on a new website and need some writers that would like to post their work for others to read. Some details are: You can post short stories or chapters for others to read. If you have a book you'd like to promote, you can post the first chapter (or an excerpt) and link it to the remainder of the book. The new site is not a Christian website, but Christian material is welcome There is currently no payment, but this may be an option available in the future. I am especially looking for fantasy, sci-fi and historical fiction, but other genres will be considered. If you're interested, please let me know and I'll get you more information.

    My brother-in-law sent these to hubs and I thought you might get a kick out of them. Fun signs... Sign in a shoe repair store in Vancouver: We will heel you. We will save your sole. We will even dye for you. A sign on a Blinds & Curtain truck: Blind man driving. In a podiatrist's office: Time wounds all heels. On a septic tank truck: Yesterday's Meals on Wheels. At an optometrist's office: If you don't see what you're looking for, you've come to the right place. On a plumber’s truck: We repair what your husband fixed. On another plumber's truck: Don't sleep with a drip. Call your plumber. At a tire shop in Milwaukee: Invite us to your next blowout. On an electrician's truck: Let us remove your shorts. In a non-smoking area: If we see smoke, we will assume you are on fire and will take appropriate action. On a maternity room door: Push. Push. Push. At a car dealership: The best way to get back on your feet - miss a car payment. Outside a muffler shop: No appointment necessary. We hear you coming. In a veterinarian's waiting room: Be back in 5 minutes. Sit! Stay! At the electric company: We would be delighted if you send in your payment on time. However, if you don't, YOU will be de-lighted. In a restaurant window: Don't stand there and be hungry; come on in and get fed up. In the front yard of a funeral home: Drive carefully. We'll wait. At a propane filling station: Thank Heaven for little grills. In a Chicago radiator shop: Best place in town to take a leak. Sign on the back of another septic tank truck: Caution - This Truck is full of Political Promises.

    My words exactly. It's like the Apostle Paul when in the book of Acts “These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also ... saying that there is another king, Jesus.” Acts 17:6-7 (ESV) They were turning it right side up. It is the world who is trying to turn it back wrong side up.

    The Christian Subculture is the 'not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together' Heb. 10:25 ESV As the world isolates itself with surrogate mothers (ie electronic babysitters), AI lovers etc, we shall be the place of human contact. This will be strange enough that it will both repel and attract, as God leads each soul. Therefore, bookstores are counter cultural. Losing money is counter cultural. Instead of pumping money into crumbling buildings, let's pump money into Christian cafe's that sell books.

    This is great, I always liked Billy Graham. I think his son Franklin is pretty good too.

    I'll put it into my "waiting for editing" list. Sounds like family is important to you on a personal level. Which is why it will be a common factor in your stories.

    Just the quote mentioned earlier was enough. I couldn't bring myself to read the rants. These particular verses came to mind: Isaiah 5:20-21 King James Version (KJV) 20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

    It is very strange, especially since writers of R-rated material regularly call their own work smutty, dirty, or filthy as a way to attract the readers who want those stories. So you can call yourself dirty and that's okay. But I can't call myself clean because that means I'm calling you dirty... ?

    I find it interesting that the term "clean" so deeply offends certain people. To me, that's very telling in itself.
