  1. What happened? I come back and this place dies.

      It's been dead for awhile. :/

    4. deseree


      People have flocked somewhere else

  2. The "America" most conservatives I run into want died about 40 years ago. It's not coming back, bros.


    No. Repent. America needs to repent and turn to Jesus.

    1. Boogles


      And I don't want it to come back. The '70's were weird.

      And if we don't repent, the next step in our destiny is almost certainly military devastation, something either plausible President could easily bring us.

      Randomly, I also just noticed that you are exactly one day older than me.

      I completely agree.

      Oh wow. How bizarre! :)

  3. In a cliche phrase: Grace Through Faith. Just as it always has been. Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness. But that's just me. I'm sure there are other logical explanations.
  4. The fiance and I love tea. We're actually wanting to start making our own :3
  5. Is there a reason why you are choosing her? Do you like what she stands for?
  6. Woah. I come back and things are different. XD Bruh.

  7. Me and the soon to be Mrs.
  8. So, I've been gone for a long time, and the reason is this: I am marrying the love of my life in the spring of next year. It took a lot of prayer and long nights thinking it over, but I want to spend the rest of my life with her. God has blessed me with her, and I couldn't be happier. So, I will still be scarce on here, but just wanted to share this real-life decision with all of you!
  9. My IQ has dropped from reading the past 4-5 pages. Logic? What's that? I'm not going to argue his salvation one way or the other, but when I think of Christ-like, Donald Trump is not near the top of my list. He's an old, grumpy man who needs Jesus. If you think you don't need forgiveness for your sin, I don't know what to tell you. Your testimony is whack. Also, #don'tfeedthetrolls
  10. My question is WHY do you not see it as theft? It doesn't make sense. If you take something that requires financial comp without providing said comp, it's theft...
  11. To the first part, I honestly have no clue. I go through BandCamp and NoiseTrade. I set my price, and if people want to pay MORE, they can, but I always have a base price ($.50 for singles, $3 for EP's, $7 for albums). As far as older bands are concerned, I still think it's theft. They may be gone, save Ringo and Paul, but it's still disrespectful
  12. Not to mention the spiritual implications this has (on Christians). If you're okay with pirating music/games/film/software/etc, it can also be seen as unrepentant sin as well. Not trying to shame anyone, but can someone on the pro-piracy side honestly give me a legitimate answer as to why theft is okay with you?
  13. You're completely incorrect. Wanna know why they do? It's theft. Next time you get your truck broken into, or your house robbed, I'm sure you'll be wishing the cops took that serious.
  14. Yup. As a musician, I find it rude. I mean, how would you feel if you put 2+ years into a project, felt it was worthy of compensation, and someone just takes it? I mean, sure, your music is getting out and heard, and that's nice, but if the purpose was only that, you wouldn't have set a price. If you can't purchase it, either the person selling the item will work with you, or don't buy it just yet. Piracy. It's theft. Don't do it.
  15. But...we're NOT a democracy. We never have been. We are a federal republic.
