In Topic: So who starts going to the early church service tomorrow?

06 September 2014 - 10:35 PM

You do not need to go to church to accomplish that. 

I was raised in the church and was a born again christian for 15 years till I started to think for myself. 

What I realized was there were way more lies spewed from within organized religion. It was a huge turnoff. 

I prefer to think my life has more meaning than serving some God others claim i should worship. 

If God is in desperate need of my love or me worshiping him/her then he is not so great after all IMO

So, I do believe in God, but my God does not punish nor judge, My God also has a sense of humor.

Sorry if I hurt your feelings  :wave:

Forgive me?  :dunno:

 

       I'll be in church for part of Sunday and watching football part of Sunday. I'll spend part of Sunday nights working with kids in the community at a church playing sports games, teaching some bible verses and trying to impart some real world life skills using experiences I've had in my life, a number of them sports related. Sometimes I'll make it home in time to see the 2nd half of the Sunday night game. Many of these kids will be kids who have never otherwise been in a church, the parents, more likely the single parent, is dropping them off to take a break for a couple of hours.

 

I'm not surprised that you would have a bad experience with a religious organization there are misguided people in all walks of life. Religious leaders, teachers, counselors, politicians, parents, everywhere. I don't take offense at anything you have said but I am concerned that people who read your comments would be mislead. 

 

God does not need our love or worship................. He is God.

However people in this world, our neighbors, community members, friends and relatives, can use the love of God as shown through us.

 

By the way when Atheists want to show love and help others, and many do, I'll stand right along side them work together, and high five them when we're done. I'll join their FF league and do my best to make sure I beat them every time!

 

You are correct that you don't need to go to church in order to accomplish any of this, but if someone is fortunate enough to find the right group of people with a common goal to love and help others you will find that you can be a part of something that does amazing things.

 

God does not need our money, he is doing OK from my understanding. People in my community could use monetary and other help many churches provide. People around the world can for that matter.

 

Jesus Christ in the bible was far more critical of the religious hierarchy of the times than he was of general humanity and I'm sure the same is true right now. Sorry you had a bad experience with the people you knew.

 

The dude preferred to hang with the kids and sinners. God was and is about love 


In Topic: Just took Calvin #1 in my money league ...

01 September 2014 - 04:44 PM

I don't see this team as rough a some of you guys do. If I'm understanding the OP on scoring system as 6pts for TD passes then its perfectly feasible that Stafford would be a 2nd round pick. 

 

So I'm guessing he went 

 

Calvin

Stafford

Stacy

Ellington

Floyd    (I'm assuming Michael here)

 

That's not awful. There are significant risks in here for sure, I'm not a CJ guy, don't know if Ertz is going to be the breakout FF scorer in that O, etc but I understand where he was coming from and I think you guys are being too harsh. In fact I'd go out on a limb and say its better than 50-50 he makes the playoffs. Love to see him come back after the season and tell us how it turned out.  


In Topic: The Skinny Addition

29 August 2014 - 11:55 AM

I've been playing Fantasy Football for over 20+ years and won multiple championships in my league.

If there's a 10 point rating system on my football knowledge, i would be a 12.

 

So go ahead if you have any questions, i'll answer them with the best of my abilities. 

 

:thumbsup:

 

I have a big picture question worthy of your breadth of knowledge with consideration your many years of FF experience.

 

What implications do you see the new emphasis on DB contact after 5 yds having on FF this year......... and into the future if it sticks?

 

I have been thinking a lot about this myself and I think it could have both redraft and dynasty implications but I love having the opportunity to ask someone else who has a long window of watching changes in the NFL effect the FF landscape over time. Plus I think the question fits OK here with respect to the complaint regarding "a little help board". 


In Topic: TE Tim Wright traded to Patriots

27 August 2014 - 10:28 AM

I always get 'em confused but it's the "H" vs "Y" - both TEs, one more "traditional"/physical, one more athletic/fast/quick/hands.

What makes Gronk such a freak is that he has more hands/athleticism that the typical "traditional" TE.

And if you can put both H and Y on the field at the same time and add in a legit outside WR, it's a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses.

 

Yeah, IDK on the letter designations could even be different depending on OC I've always referred to them as "in line" or "move" or if you prefer

Gruden- speak "move" becomes "joker".

 

Also, thanks!


In Topic: RG3 - What's The Deal Here? True Overall Value?

27 August 2014 - 09:13 AM

if you've already drafted him in a league, id still hold.

in pending drafts, id be inclined to look a different direction.

around the same area, u can get russell wilson or kaep.

i was bullish on rg3 earlier on this offseason, but the preseason has me sorta concerned.

though the preseason is small sample size, he hasn't seemed to got progressively better in his decision making.

 

1000% agree, my sentiments exactly. I would add he plays right now like knows he is not getting it done and is pressing. I wouldn't cut bait or anything, but I also wouldn't be surprised if it got ugly in Wash after previously feeling like that O was a lock to be top 7 stats due to divisional shootouts and overall talent.
