It will be interesting to see how this whole thing plays out. He has also gotten a kraft commercial voice over.

Why is fear of God part of the criteria?

Not to speak for Cheriel, but "the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom."  This fear is not the idea of terror, but is closer to respect.  But it is not respect either.  It is an acknowledgement that God is God and you are not.  It is knowing that while He is the God of love, He is also holy and the God of justice too.   It falls closer to the idea of when bunch of kids stop talking when the teacher steps in the room and wait for her to speak.   But never take it so far as, living your life afraid that God will zap you.   At least this is how my doctrine take this.


Exactly. That is how I had been taught so to be speak. The fear is not a shaking but of reverence.

I can't wait to watch it! Kids love to think they are "hard" until they really meet up with someone that's from the streets and the ones that are on the fence can be scared straight. If you are hoodlum you going to see a few friends and cousins no biggie.

But it is so funny to watch them go in tough as nails and start crying within 15 minutes.

New Year fresh start for me.

Once my daughter goes back to school I will start with a bootcamp a few mornings a week in snowy Ca, and maybe Zumba classes for cardio.

Any diet that is all liquids is crap! Once he has a few of those pork chops he is eyeballin' the weight will slide back.

Lifestyle changes are the only thing that really work, stuff like this is more of a band aid on a cut artery.

I need to feel there are still good ole core God seeking/fearing beliefs. Learning/teaching/leading/reminding for my family. Kip thanx for sharing about your church so I guess it isn't that uncommon OR it's the same place ;).

I want my daughter to have not only spiritual guidance but feel apart of a community. As I type this I wonder why am I leaving my old church.

No disrespect taken at all. I was actually on my laptop. But that was kinda the whole point of what we where sayin is this really odd or was more a sign of the times. I mean Ipads are essential for life for some.

Then again there were no video screens, drums or anything more elaborate than an organ 25 years ago. I would like to just pick a nice decent church.

Mike I'm so sorry to hear that! what a dummy ash. Hopeful the person mistook you for someone else because I would seriously hate to think that it was over your practice of religion.

In L.A.  try driving through certain areas you see many Orthodox famalies walking it's beautiful with the babies in arms and the elders shuffling along.

Leave that back in 2010

Well heck I had a job that it was part of my job description to buy p*rn which meant I had to look at it to make sure it was good. :D The things I have done.
