    Yeah, sometimes you can find amazing things at thrift stores. I bought a Hart, Shaffer and Marx Blazer from our Crisis Pregnancy Center thrift shop for $4.50. I love it!

    And it helps support those who are employed there.

It was a gift.
    I own lots of clothes from designer labels but I bought them from the thrift shop, some still had tags on them. I love second hand stores!

    You didn't make this thread, so you don't have the authority to shut it down. However, if this is you running away from the thread you are more than free to do just that.

    answer the questions from mossrose in the quote below
    Originally posted by mossrose View Post
    So, Do you have lots of money? Can you buy the designer stuff?

    If you answer no, then why not? Faith not strong enough?

    Have you ever had a cold? The flu? Ever had your eyes examined? Do you wear glasses or contact lens? Have you ever seen a doctor for anything?

    If you answer yes, then why? Is your faith not strong enough?
    and mine
    Do you know the difference between needs and wants?

    Until you answer these questions you have no right to question the faith of those here who are using the Brains God gave them to make sure they understand What God and Jesus are TRULY saying and promising in the bible.

    These questions will be asked every time you question the faith of those who have studied the word in it's entirety. Until they are answered.

    I leave you with this thought MR. Kott
    I and others like me who do use the brains God gave us believe in the TRUE Jesus and True God and their TRUE promises not some pie in the sky get what you want vending machine god.

    And Jesus said,

    Matthew 6:19-21King James Version (KJV)

    19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

    20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

    21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
    I do believe what Jesus said. MY treasure is not on this earth.

    Apparently yours lies in designer clothes.
