        PS: Good to see the acknowledgement of the sovereignty of God in the forums: hard to see how some ppl can equate the grace of God in the Gospel with the fallen will of the sinner...........Ephesians 2 is indeed very searching......

        It is great to see you and the wisdom you bring. I'm currently studying Romans with my wife and family and from the beginning Paul describes the fallen sinners with debased minds. It is interesting that although men are spiritually dead, they physically communicate with those who are spiritually alive in Christ.

        You have just reminded me that the windshield is cracked. All of that cold weather started putting pressure on a chip in the windshield. I am working on getting it replaced. Other than that the Trooper is running great! Thank you for asking.

        I just thought the picture fits good on the forum...

      Hi @Rudometkin An odd thread about God supposedly not being Creator; I thought it was so odd that I didn't even want to reply.

        Yeah, I would have thought the staff would take more action when it comes to obvious non-christians lurking in the christian section, but I imagine they have their reasons for doing what they do.

        The thread seems to have died down now.

        Speaking of activity, I've been thinking about engaging more in the forums...any particular areas you suggest I inhabit?

        Sounds like fun. Do you ever wrap chains around your tires? I know people used to do that up around the Lake Tahoe area for the intense weather conditions when I was a kid.

        I've seen it done with chains, I think. Regulations about winter tires seem to differ from place to place,depending on the jurisdiction. Also, in places, it depends where the vehicle is registered - number plate - as to whether they will fine ppl without winter tires.

        We didn't get much snow this time here in Nashville. Last week I measured 6 inches. This time I guess about 2 inches. How much snow did you get?

        I've driven a lot of manuals; they are easy to get used to, although for some ppl initially it can seem different. Automatics are a dream, though; one can almost be lulled into not paying attention...

        Yeah, I wonder what it'll be like if everyone starts traveling in those automatic 'self driving' cars that I've heard about.

        People having liberty to sleep in the driver's seat doesn't sound like a good idea to me!

        I have spent alot of my time lately suffering, and consequently having great hope produced in me, if that makes sense, and I'm glad God has me spending my time this way. :)

        Great so far. I don't drive it much! I just had the oil changed today, and it drives so much better again. How's your Chevy?

        Speaking of gasoline prices, I saw a bumper sticker while driving the other day. It said, "If you voted for Joe Biden, you owe me gas money!"

        Haha, apparently it's common knowledge that Joe Biden would raise gas prices?

        @farouk some old 4wd are actually holding their value pretty well in Australia, some stopped losing value at a certain point, especially the old Nissan Patrols, Toyota Hiluxs, Toyota Land cruisers, and there are people willing to pay over $10,000, or even over $15,000 AUD for a car 20 years or older.

      Replied to you this eve. on a couple of threads; I like this site;my experience with some of the threads is that some ppl will be "professional controversialists" and oppose whatever others say, sometimes.
