    Prayers Please

    Say some prayers. I recently went to see a doctor and have been diagnosed with the flu. I am currently in the process of recovering from this illness.
  2. Well, it seems that old serpent, the snake, that enemy of mine called the devil, or Satan, has been up to his old tricks here lately, and has been quite busy trying to cause problems in my life, placing obstacles in my path, and generally trying to distract and discourage me from doing good work. Basically, the following Bible passage sums up my situation: “You’re blessed when your commitment to God provokes persecution. The persecution drives you even deeper into God’s kingdom. “Not only that—count yourselves blessed every time people put you down or throw you out or speak lies about you to discredit me. What it means is that the truth is too close for comfort and they are uncomfortable. You can be glad when that happens—give a cheer, even!—for though they don’t like it, I do! And all heaven applauds. And know that you are in good company. My prophets and witnesses have always gotten into this kind of trouble. --Matthew 5:10-12 (The Message) In other words, if this is what I have been experiencing, then I must be doing something right! Nudge. Nudge. Though, it seems since transitioning into this New Year of 2018, my troubles have quieted down quite a bit and things are relatively at peace once again, with the exception of some occasional minor annoyances, but this is quite normal and, ah, such is life! Here lately, I've began committing to spending at least 2 hours a day working on this project (minus the Sabbath) and plan to continue it until the website has been designed and the first blog article is written (and then some), and I think that's quite reasonable given my schedule the way it is right now. God be with me! Amen to that!!! ꝉ ꝉ ꝉ
  3. Well, Happy New Year! It's a new year, goodbye 2017, hello 2018, and time to hit the refresh button! Amen to that! I guess after it becoming a distraction from my normal routine I have finally gotten my computer to behave itself and NOT give me anymore SERIOUS problems. It bewilders, though, me what I had to go through and what I had to do just to tame (repair) this BEAST (my computer), though, but perhaps it's best I just keep that to myself. Nudge. Nudge. Anywayz. . . Now that my computer is fixed and it is a new year, it's back to work on my blog/website and a fresh new start! I've even chosen a new theme (Divi) and layout (Josefin Church from BeSuperFly.com) for the site that is simpler and easier to use than the previous one. It's called the Divi theme, from Elegant Themes, and while it may not have as many features (bells & whistles) as the Extra theme (which I probably don't need right now anyway), it is much simpler, easier to use and easier to learn, even for beginners to website design, and therefore the learning curve is not nearly as steep as the Extra theme. Hopefully this will work out much better for me right now, and perhaps later on, after gaining some more experience with this project and learning some more stuff, I can switch back over to the Extra theme if I ever need any of it's bells and whistles! Okay, so time to get going, again!. . .
  4. UPDATE!!!: Here lately I have been plagued by technical difficulties and problems with my computer and whilst being in the midst of trying to fix it having gotten rather sidetracked on working on my website and blog. After all, I really need my computer as a tool to work on my website and blog and if it's giving me problems that's going to make it difficult to even access my website and blog. Thankfully, I am CompTIA A+ Certified and I do know some stuff about fixing computers, thus I have been able to pinpoint the cause of the problems and come up with a solution, but the kinds of computer problems I've been having were of no simple matter, rather complicated and complex and it has taken me quite a bit of time to get it repaired. I'm not quite there yet to getting this problem fully resolved, but I am awfully close, and should be fully back up and running again soon, hopefully, ready for prime time! Just sayin' my prayers now. . .
  5. Thank you. I also found a cool Youtube video (link here) on how to use Wordpress and the Extra theme from ElegantThemes in order to setup a beautiful blog website from scratch. The video, however, is almost 2 hours and 20 minutes long. I haven't watched the entire video just yet (only a portion of it), but as far as my schedule is concerned I'll likely find some time tomorrow (Thursday) to watch it in it's entirety.
  6. Well, I believe I may have found some reliable relevant resources (for research) to begin with that will be very helpful in writing my first blog article, and some of them provide links to other reliable resources (just for verification), while others are just "food for thought" (to get the juices flowing). These resources are as follows (let me know what you think): BOOKS: The Holy Bible (God's Word) "Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from it's Cultural Captivity (Study Guide Edition)" by Nancy Pearcy & Phillip Johnson "Finding Truth: 5 Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes" by Nancy Pearcy & Phillip Johnson "Understanding Culture: A Survey of Social Engagement" by Jeff Myers "A Patriot's History of the United States: From Columbus's Great Discovery to America's Age of Entitlement (Revised Edition)" by Larry Schweikart & Michael Patrick Allen "The Patriot's History Reader: Essential Documents for Every American" by Larry Schweikart "The Bible in America" by Steve Green & Todd Hillard "Faith in America" by Steve Green EDIT (ADDED 1/19/2018): "The Path to Tyranny: A History of Free Society's Descent into Tyranny" by Michael E. Newton INTERNET RESOURCES: WallBuilders History of Israel | Free Online Library at BiblicalTraining.org How the Decline of Moral Values Promote the Failure of Civilizations - Bible Blender Ethics and Moral Behavior Decline of America, The - World History Class When Nations Die
  7. Okay, website bugs fixed, at least for the time being. Nudge. Nudge. For research purposes, what are some of the best examples from Bible passages and U.S. History (or World History) that illustrate that when people embrace truth they tend to gain more freedom, and when people reject truth they tend to lose their freedom? When providing answers, please cite reliable sources. Thank you for understanding.
  8. Seems after being a bit pushy and using their complaint system to submit a complaint about waiting so long for response, ElegantThemes finally responded to my support ticket this morning, although I will have to wait even longer to continue resolving the issue, not because of ElegantThemes, but because of my own personal busy schedule I have ahead of me today, and I will have to wait until this evening or tomorrow morning to continue fixing the bugs on my website. Nudge. Nudge.
  9. It's been 48 hours and still no response from ElegantThemes. . .
  10. Now if I could only get ElegantThemes tech support to respond to my support ticket. The last time I needed their support they responded with mere minutes. This time it is taking more than 24 hours. Hmmmmmmm...
  11. I have added a Creative Commons copyright notice to the footer at the bottom of the page. In the meantime, I have submitted a support ticket to ElegantThemes just this morning to help fix some obvious bugs, especially with text and graphics alignment issues. Just waiting for their response. . . Anyone have any other ideas/suggestions/advice/"food for thought" for the layout/design of the website?
  12. FWIW, my plan is to first setup the design and layout of the website before I actually write any blog articles or put any other information on the site. This makes the most sense. I think it's a good idea to just have everything laid out properly and know exactly how things will be setup before I start adding any actual content, wouldn't you agree? Nudge. Nudge. The EXTRA theme (from ElegantThemes.com) allows me not only to layout the structure of the website without adding any content, but also the structure of individual pages on the site using a thing called modules.
  13. Misunderstanding. Become A Christian is not a blog title on the site. It's only suppose to be a static page on the site that explains how to become a Christian. It will always be on the homepage; just a standard part of the layout.
