As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, but if clicking on forum on homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • I got these three passages with the word spirit that don't make sense.

    Luke 24:36-39 King James Version (KJV)
    36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

    37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.

    38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

    39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

    King James Version (KJV)

    Acts 23:6-9 King James Version (KJV)
    6 But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.

    7 And when he had so said, there arose a dissension between the Pharisees and the Sadducees: and the multitude was divided.

    8 For the Sadducees say that there is no resurrection, neither angel, nor spirit: but the Pharisees confess both.

    9 And there arose a great cry: and the scribes that were of the Pharisees' part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God.

    Job 4:12-21 King James Version (KJV)
    12 Now a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof.

    13 In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men,

    14 Fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake.

    15 Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up:

    16 It stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof: an image was before mine eyes, there was silence, and I heard a voice, saying,

    17 Shall mortal man be more just than God? shall a man be more pure than his maker?

    18 Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly:

    19 How much less in them that dwell in houses of clay, whose foundation is in the dust, which are crushed before the moth?

    20 They are destroyed from morning to evening: they perish for ever without any regarding it.

    21 Doth not their excellency which is in them go away? they die, even without wisdom.

    I'm not sure what your question is, or what the problem is. If it helps you at all, insert "ghost" or "spiritual aparition" instead of the word "spirit". In these instances, that's exactly what is being meant. We know this, becuase, Jesus himself perceives them to know they think he's a ghost/spiritual aparition by telling them specifically that he's flesh and blood - then eating with them (things ghosts/spiritual aparitions can't do). Hope this helps.
