KING JAMES BIBLE STILL THE PREFERRED TRANSLATION IN AMERICA (Friday Church News Notes, June 22, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The 2015 Barna State of the Bible survey found that the King James Bible remains the preferred Bible version among Americans by far. It is the preferred Bible by 39% of those surveyed. After that is the New International Version (NIV), at 13%, and the New King James (NKJV), at 10%. These numbers have remained consistent since 2012. There is a significant difference when it comes to age groups. Among Boomers (age 50-68), 43% prefer the KJV; among Gen-Xers (age 31-49), 41%; but among Millennials (age 16-30), it is 28%. Still, the King James Bible is the preferred translation among all age groups over the New International Version, which is the next favorite.

Yes, I'm still here...I just haven't written much in a while.

Last week, I received an interesting email from someone asking me to change the attribution on one of the pictures I had used. 

Here's the article:  http://www.maxsons.org/2014/01/17/american-culture-and-the-media 
Here's the image I used:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/87735223@N02/11359245033/

All of my own images are published with a creative commons license and I'm totally for the idea that the person gets to control what happens with their stuff; however, I think it is a step too far to use that to drive traffic to a website as opposed to a simple attribution.

Attention: to those living in the Surrey area. I have returned. There is no need to fear this "beast from the east". There will be no snow.

Stupid .@Facebook marked a post as spam. If it weren't for keeping up with friends, I'd ditch it.

The 2nd Amendment:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

The Constitution will not be bullied. What part of "shall not be infringed" do people not understand???

This is a good article: https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2018/02/16/the-left-fails-to-recognize-the-current-reality/

The main point is that guns aren't the problem...the lack of a moral compass in society is the problem.
