May 22

I see a lot oif long time married couples at church sitting with there children between them including teen children makes me sad they should be sitting next to each other put the children on the other side of the parents when the children are gone they will have a hard time closing that gap .why do couples do this or if the ones do sit with each other itys shoulder to shoulder never se them hug or hold hands i feel its up to couples with strong christian marriages to show the young generation you can still be in love after 2o ,30 40 years ,I love that my husband always has a pertective arm or hand on me and always pulls me close to pray as one when preacher says lets pray love feeling cherrished but feel sad when i look around and see other couples wasting time ,

Isidore Agape commented on Jesus the Botanist: Musings about the Biblical Heart:

May 20

If Jesus was a Botanist, he was a horrible Botanist. The kind of Botanist that flunked Botany - much like our friends over at AiG, who try to convince everyone that Genesis is literal history, must have flunked Astronomy, Biology, Botany, and Physics.
“καὶ ἔλεγεν, πῶς ὁμοιώσωμεν τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ θεοῦ, ἢ ἐν τίνι αὐτὴν παραβολῇ θῶμεν; ὡς κόκκῳ σινάπεως, ὃς ὅταν σπαρῇ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, μικρότερον ὂν πάντων τῶν σπερμάτων τῶν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, καὶ ὅταν σπαρῇ, ἀναβαίνει καὶ γίνεται μεῖζον πάντων τῶν λαχάνων καὶ ποιεῖ κλάδους μεγάλους, ὥστε δύνασθαι ὑπὸ τὴν σκιὰν αὐτοῦ τὰ πετεινὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ κατασκηνοῦν.”
“And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with
what comparison shall we compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed,
which, when it is sown in the earth, is less than all the seeds that be
in the earth: But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater
than all herbs, and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of
the air may lodge under the shadow of it.” – Mark 4:30-32
Poppy seeds are smaller than mustard seeds, so mustard seeds aren’t the smallest. Mustard seeds also are not “insignificant”, as they’ve got healing properties and health benefits, as they are rich in vitamin and minerals.
Jesus was a horrible Botanist.

marie1971 commented on How to Pray When You’re Depressed: A Look at Psalm 13:

May 18

I have recently discovered this Psalm in the same way to be helpful, and speaking directly to depression as you did, Mark. Thinking to write something for the BCC, I googled “Psalm 13 and Depression” - and your insightful post here was the first result! Thank you.
