    He was. Many times. But he was always home by nightfall.

    Bad things happen when the state takes away children. I speak from experience. I'm the oldest of 9 children. The state came in and took 6 because of my dad's physical abuse. It was bad. That man could (and did) drink a gallon of cheap vodka a day with about a 12 pack of Black Label beer. That said, the state foster homes did a number on the kids psychologically. A lot of the foster families do it just to get the welfare money per child. One of my brothers committed suicide last year. Mose of em are on psych meds still. Kind of a catch 22 there. But I have a hatred for the works of the state like no person can ever know.

    Oh, okay. I thought you bpught from different random places. I scored François Borgel stamped .925 Silver Watch Back Plate the other day. That's about it, though. Good stuff, man. Keep it up. I kinda read this thread like the morning newspaper.

    Unreported use of goats. It figures it'd be something like that.

    Ha. Speaking of manna, did you know that fine powder could be wiped with frankincense and made into bread cakes, which the old Septuagint Bible calls bread of the presence? For years theologians have confused themselves because surely the golden calf would have been molten. But nope. White powder. Manna...'shem-an-na' by the Babylonians, 'mfkzt' by the Egyptians, and 'manna' by the Israelites.

    Well, that's why I like Noah Webster's Bible. He knew Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. Plus he understood the connection between physical liberty and liberty of thought. Unlike some worldly Kings I know. Hehehe. And it's a bonus that he produced the very first Dictionary in America. So he knows his words, too. Not only that, But I have a copy of his other textbook, "A Grammatical Institute of the English Language." I figure if there's any Bible I can trust to get words and tenor right, it's likely his. Sometimes those lying scribes are revealed. Hehehe. I do have Strong's Exhaustive Concordance on one of my shelves, though. You're right, that's always great to have around.

    I'm poking through this Noah Webster Bible I have. I think I like that one better than the KJ Authorized. I'm probably gonna keep it as my go-to.

    Okay. I guess I'll have to read the whole books for tenor. It's harder to make sense of it all with just proof texts. Thanks, donnay.

    Don't worry, I have a million of em. That's the great thing about not having all of the answers. It leaves room for lots of questions. And a free pass not to have to actually debate the topic, I'd add. Tee hee hee hee hee.

    Leviticus 17:3-4 is one that I wonder about, too. "Any Israelite who slaughters an ox, a sheep, or a goat, either inside or outside the camp, and does not bring it to the entrance of the Tent of the Presence to present it as an offering to the Lord shall be guilty of bloodshed, that man has shed blood and shall be cut off from the people." In other words, any slaughtering exclusively for the sake of food was bloodshed. Right? So, then, asking you as a Christian, would the the New Covenant sacrifice of Jesus demand us to cease to consume animal flesh? After all, if Jesus death is the reason why Christians view sacrifice as invalid then surely we must be consistent and also recognize that there is no other way proscribed for us to Lawfully consume flesh. Or naw?

    Oh, okay. So I think I see where the disagreement is in scope. Thanks. Yeah, I know. I grew up on one. Remember? Hehehe Anyway, I didn't mean to insinuate that you purposely skated my qustion, donnay. That's just the way I talk.

    Yes, I know that some animals are dirtier than others. But you skated around my question. I asked if perhaps those dietary laws were for the purpose of weaning mankind from dead carcasses until he was out of the wilderness and established as a nation? Or do you think that those words were intended to serve as an example for all time?
