Notice The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

    Dear Trout:

    "Normal," is a difficult term, wouldn't you agree? I encourage you to remember your identity is in Christ and, as such, you are in this world but not of it. In that regard, I would have to say that it is perfectly "normal" not to feel "normal," because you are not a citizen of this world. Rejoice, I say, in your doubts of normalcy.

    It is also important to note that God has given us dominion over all the creatures of the earth and, as such, the amount of time spent brushing your cat is directly related to the size of your reward in heaven.

    I trust your concerns have been allayed.

    Blessings,

    Lynn
    Man. I would have just told him to go and get a life.

    That's why you are able to charge a nickel for advice, I guess!

          Dearest Jardin:

          Thanks for the great advice on cat brushing. I'm feeling much better.

          I do have a second question:

          I've a trip to Canada planned later in the summer; what precautions should I take to assure my safety?

          I know Canadians have the highest crime rate among similarly sized third world countries.

          Thanks in advance.

            Glad I could help, Trout!

            With regard to your second question, however, I must say that this topic is outside my area of expertise. Having never traveled to Canada myself, I must honestly say that the extent of my knowledge on the region is limited solely to what I have read about it on TWeb. That said, the best advice I can offer on that basis alone is that you should immediately cancel your trip. I hear north Florida is lovely in late summer.

            Your comment about the crime rate is alarming, and somewhat fascinating. This is purely conjecture, but I have to wonder if Canada's overall rejection of the gospel and Christianity in general have something to do with their crime problem.

            I have, however, met one or two (but, not more than two) very nice Canadian people. We should pray for Canada and hold onto hope!
