16 random things about me. More later hopefully.

Well friends, I see others doing this on their blogs so I will.  This will be totally random, and I am not sure how many things there will be.  Hope you like it.

1. I am twenty, almost twenty-one.

2. I am left handed, though, somewhat ambidextrous at times, lol.

3. I am the youngest in my family.

4. One of my very favorite things in life is anything about airplanes.

5. I eat bugs.

6. I like liver.

7. Singing is not my thing.  I used to love it, but then my voice changed when I was around 14? and it is a rare hymn that I can sing without cracking.

8. I love computers, and will be taking a programming course soon.

9. I love woodworking.  I like making little things out of wood like boxes and carved plaques.

10. I loving fixing things.  There is no sound more beautiful to me, than hearing an engine I spent hours working on, start up on the first try.

11. I am a night person.

12. In spite of the above, I get up at 4:15 AM every morning.

13. I love raising animals, and,

14. I live on a farm.

15. I love music, I going to learn to make it someday, I love piano music, I have played a dulcimer, and hopefully will get back to that soon.  My very favorite music is the really sombre majestic stuff.  Only problem I have is that it is so hard to find, guess I will have to learn to make it myself. 

16. In case you have not noticed from the content of this blog, I am a Christian.  I believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and, that He died to pay the penalty for my sin. Without his forgiveness, I'd go straight to Hell.

Earthquake here?

Ok, yesterday, central Oklahoma was rocked by a 5.6 earthquake.  It is pretty interesting, I never thought that I would end up living in a place with earth quakes.  Hopefully we will never have a big one.  This particular one was the largest earthquake that Oklahoma has ever had recorded.

Can one lose his salvation?

Interesting question, and one which I think is pretty easily explained with scripture.  Once saved always saved seems to go something like this:  If I am saved, I can never lose my salvation, and, if I am living in gross sin, it is obvious that I was never saved.  Well, that doctrine does not stand up to scrutiny.  In I Corinthians Paul talks of a man that was living in gross sin, this man was a believer, and Paul tells the Church to deliver him over to Satan that his body should be destroyed, but his spirit saved.  This seems to imply that this man was truly a Christian, though living in sin, and that, in time if left to himself would lose his salvation.  To further discuss this issue, this man, living in sin, was delivered by Paul over to Satan, now listen closely, "for the destruction of the body," that is, the fleshly one, "that his soul might be saved."  Which states that, you can actually sin so much, that there is no return, and your soul perishes, that is, goes to hell.  So, that means that, a Christian can fall away, and eventually lose their salvation and go to hell.  Even Paul said that he trembled and was careful that he lose not his salvation.
