If you were a Christian, and you see laws being passed that hinder your ability to worship freely, would you get involved in the process?
I think it's pretty self explanatory.

Getting back to the OP.....

There's nothing wrong with storing foodstuffs in properly cleaned 5-gallon buckets like the ones Home Depot sells or like the ones drywall mud is packed in. Yes, they have rubber gaskets for sealing, and can preserve foods for a long time. Except....

What sort of foodstuff do you expect to store that will be used five gallons at a time? Unless you're cooking for a tribe, you're not likely to require that sort of bulk. Using foods stored in five-gallon containers is going to involve extended periods of time when less than five gallons are in the bucket. Each time the bucket is partially emptied and resealed, air and bacteria enter.

I tried storing processed corn feed for chickens in a similar bucket. Fine and dandy as long as the bucket was full or nearly so. Rot and decay began to set in when I was about 2 gallons down. I threw away two gallons of feed for every five I bought.

Storing food in small, sealed packages inside five-gallon buckets is a winner, though.
Good point. If you're storing anything, it has to be bone dry or it'll mold, and absolutely no fat products unless you bought something like jerky that came sealed already.
This is why we bought a thousand count box of silica gel and oxygen absorbing packs, toss in a new one every time you open the package.

Religion Forum / Christians In A Political World

I am as guilty and probably more than most when it comes to the subject of Christians and their wrongful involvement in the political system!

I, in my search for knowledge about the early Christians and how they dealt with the politics of their time have come to the realization that ... they just didn't involve themselves!

They, as the bible and Jesus commanded would "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and unto God what is God's"
 (Unless man's law conflicts with God's law, we should abide)

They didn't vote or hold pep rallies for their favorite candidate and they didn't debate one side of the political aisle or the other.

They preached the Kingdom of God.

I don't wish to get into a bible quoting debate here .. I would just like to know everyone's thoughts on the subject.

A question: If, as Jesus said that Satan is the ruler of this world and that he (Jesus) and his Apostles were no part of this world .. Why would Christians involve themselves in politics and elections?

Since Satan will continue to be the ruler of this world and it's political system (until Jesus's Kingdom comes into rule) .. doesn't it make sense that whomever you vote into office .. that person will still be "In the world" and still be under the rule of Satan?

In other words .. regardless of who is in office, he is still a subject of Satan's world.
(Just look at who rules the 'free' world right now!)

Isn't spreading the message of God's coming Kingdom Rule what Christians should be doing and Not worrying/involving themselves in the political system/world?

As an aside .. God has allowed Satan dominion over all the Kingdoms for now and this is where I believe many Christians are confused on exactly Why their voting actually means .. nada!

Okay .. skewer me. :ttoung:

Every time I see someone advertising "Green" this and that, I fire off a nasty email explaining the roots of the "Green movement" is pure communism.
Now I'll just include a link to this article as well.

That's probably true, so they really should show up.

Did you also hear the overwhelming percentage of these "children" are actually teens?  Old enough to be social problems.

Warren's more of an oppurtunist than anything else. She thinks that by being the most obnoxious, stereotypical left wing bitch she can get good air time. I can't believe she actually thinks America would elect someone like her lol.
