  • What is your interpretation of Ezekiel 37: 16-20?

    A "stick" was a scroll of sheepskin or parchment used for recording religious and secular information, rolled upon a stick of wood. The Stick of Judah is the Holy Bible, the books written by the prophets and apostles of the Lord. What is the Stick of Ephraim? Do you realize this prophesy of Ezekiel has been fulfilled?

  • ATTN: Attornies. Is a Last Will and Testament null and void if it's modified, dated and signed by the owner?

But the infamous "F" word runs rampant on this board among other sexually explicit words better left to their biological terms. It seems to me this is a... show more

  • Who among the guitarists on this board can play "The Flight of the Bumblebee" through one sitting?

    This classic song was originally composed by N. Rimsky-Korsakoff and played only by piano for many years before the guitarist decided to tackle it. The entire piece is written in sixteenth notes for the first part and eighth and quarter notes for the second guitar part. It is the most challenging song I've encountered.
