It's a very sad day for me. I finally have to break down and get a new Bible. Up until now, I pretty much stuck to the NIV. However, I find myself torn between the ESV study Bible, and the Holman study Bible. There are things I like and dislike about both of them. Was wondering if anybody else had any thoughts on the matter. 

The tragedy in Boston seems to illustrate that politics has become our nation's religion. Much like the Newtown tragedy, so many are brushing aside the humanity of what is going on as we hurry to push our respective agendas. There are many theories as to why this nation as a whole is in decline. I say that it's the loss of morals, compassion and basic humanity that make us great individuals. That detachment from the golden rule seems to have permeated our society and is dragging us down. Even Jesus wept with grieving families. Lets focus on giving these people our prayers, love and support. The political agendas can wait.

So I was in the bookstore the other day looking for a new Bible for someone. I was looking at one of the in IV Bibles and a woman came up to me scolding me. She said that unless I had the King James version, I was not getting the true Bible. I realize that I'm relatively new to all this. But, I am a rather big history buff. The King James Bible was translated in 1611 and was written with a much more limited knowledge of the Greek and Hebrew vernacular than we have today. I'm not asking this to condemn, it's a genuine question. Why do people believe that the King James is the only right version? Is a tradition, or is there some historical reasoning?

Hey all. I'm a seven-year Army vet who was wounded and could walk for the better part of the year. I also received some lung damage as well. As a result of that, I packed on more pounds than I wanted to. I find myself needing to lose about 35. Fitness is always come pretty naturally to me, but now I have to work at it. I'm trying to run and things like that. But, with my lung problems and my knee problems, it's a pretty slow process. I was wondering if anybody had any diet, lifting, supplement tips for me. I'm pretty new to this whole gym scene. Thanks in advance.

Glad someone understands that we can't keep gutting the DOD to pay for over bloated entitlements.
