I was in the liquor store this weekend ... a bottle of Booker's is now about $80. Ugh.

Matthew 25:16-17

"16 The man who had received five bags of gold went at once and put his money to work and gained five bags more. 17 So also, the one with two bags of gold gained two more."

Every time I read this, I have a hard time focusing on the rest of the parable.
All I can think of is, "Where the heck are t hese guys investing that they're getting a 100% ROI?"

(I brought this up with a few buddies and one of them started up with jokes about Jewish bankers.)

One of my part-time business actually has a 150% ROI. I am not sharing which is it because then you will show up and compete with me :)

The only reason why I am not rich is because there is not enough market to gain a big volume of customers. So you get a nice ROI but not a lot of money in absolute terms.

So right now it's Sunday and I didn't go to church this morning, nor will I go next Sunday, because one of the people in my Bible study group, which met on Thursday evening, tested positive for the china coof on Friday. Supposedly following CDC guidelines, they've declared that a pureblood who has been exposed cannot attend services for ten days.

And I thought to myself ... how ironic. Purebloods (aka the unjabbed) are the new lepers, and we're being denied entry into God's house. Jesus is likely not pleased.

heal the sick.  I recall that in the bible somewhere.  Your church might need to do some research on that "healing" stuff.  seems like the coof pretty much revealed all the unbelievers. maybe a disciple training program where people are taught the basics, then shown how to do it where they can participate and witness miracles.  That pretty much makes real believers who don't get all stupid.   you might be hanging with the baby crowd in a church that fosters knowledge over obedience. obedience grows faith.

Yeah, twice this year I've been "suspended" for something I said. The second time involved something I said on Instagram, and I got cancel cultured by someone I thought was my friend. And they claim they're all about "outreach".
What good is outreach if you're alienating the people already on board?

I have a couple of friends who are diametrically apposed in our opinions on several things. We just know not to poke each other there, and enjoy the common parts.

When people i know ask me about my FSM pin in the winter ( i wear it on my fleece hoodie i wear 3/4 of the winter, until it gets down below 20 ), "its an alternative religion, you would not be interested" and we move on to other topics.


Tho i have had a few people yell 'raman' at me, and cover one eye, so i'm not alone :)

Of course -- most of us have friends with different religions or politics or whatever. Reasonable people know that and just work with it. When we have friends at all, we generally have something in common with them. Sometimes it's religion or politics but sometimes it's favorite activities, going through the same seasons of life together, love of sportsball or whatever.

Unfortunately, sometimes you do encounter people who become so radical over their religion or politics that they begin removing people from their lives who aren't part of their tribe. It's sad but it happens.

I think we are heading for a time where certain religions are not going to allow you to not believe something. Christianity got that out of its system some time ago via Catholicism, but there is a younger religion that is fond of killing infidels.

There is a two-pronged approach to eradicating Christianity in the West.

1. Legitimate Christianity is shamed

2. Many of the mainline denominations have been "converged" and are now apostate.
