    This that you said, is interesting. In fact, I find it fascinating.

    Now I know what Rick is getting at in his reply to you, because he's talking about an abuse of power within the Church. I agree with him on that, too. But your complaint is about the voice. You don't mind a sheep giving testimony, but you detest the Shepherd's direction to mankind. Did I understand you right?
    Yes, that's a good summary of it, sheep can testify all they want to. Sheep actually knock on my door to witness to me on an occasional basis, and I always refrain from challenging them on their belief and the basis of it. Just a hunch, but I bet Richard sinisterly enjoys that knock on his door...especially if he's board and in one of his cantankerous moods I even have had sheep as patients and employees that would testify to me.

    I do like to hear other people's opinions. It's the spice of life!

    Good morning,

    Your words "sound" like you don't consider yourself as one of the Lord's sheep. Would you please clarify what you think sheep are?

    Rick

    There is no other book like the Bible in the world where you have to know the Author to understand the book. If Christianity were the religion of the Book then it would be no different than any other religion in the world. But, Christianity is Christ! It is the dynamic, personal Spirit of God functioning in man.

    Ah... ha!!!


    From Wikipedia:

    "Sheep (Ovis aries) are quadrupedal, ruminant mammals typically kept as livestock. Like all ruminants, sheep are members of the order Artiodactyla, the even-toed ungulates. Although the name "sheep" applies to many species in the genus Ovis, in everyday usage it almost always refers to Ovis aries. Numbering a little over one billion, domestic sheep are also the most numerous species of sheep.
    Sheep are most likely descended from the wild mouflon of Europe and Asia. One of the earliest animals to be domesticated for agricultural purposes, sheep are raised for fleece, meat (lamb, hogget or mutton) and milk. A sheep's wool is the most widely used animal fiber, and is usually harvested by shearing. Ovine meat is called lamb when from younger animals and mutton when from older ones. Sheep continue to be important for wool and meat today, and are also occasionally raised for pelts, as dairy animals, or as model organisms for science.
    Sheep husbandry is practised throughout the majority of the inhabited world, and has been fundamental to many civilizations. In the modern era, Australia, New Zealand, the southern and central South American nations, and the British Isles are most closely associated with sheep production.
    Sheep-raising has a large lexicon of unique terms which vary considerably by region and dialect. Use of the word sheep began in Middle English as a derivation of the Old English word scēap; it is both the singular and plural name for the animal. A group of sheep is called a flock, herd or mob. Adult female sheep are referred to as ewes, intact males as rams or occasionally tups, castrated males as wethers, and younger sheep as lambs. Many other specific terms for the various life stages of sheep exist, generally related to lambing, shearing, and age.
    Being a key animal in the history of farming, sheep have a deeply entrenched place in human culture, and find representation in much modern language and symbology. As livestock, sheep are most-often associated with pastoral, Arcadian imagery. Sheep figure in many mythologies—such as the Golden Fleece—and major religions, especially the Abrahamic traditions. In both ancient and modern religious ritual, sheep are used as sacrificial animals."

    Ah yes, I momentarily forgot you were a literalist.

    Thanks for confirming you're not a sheep. :-)
