Americans live in a society which provides religious freedom to its citizens which allows us to worship God in any manner we please. We have developed tolerance toward each other's beliefs; we recognize that each individual has a civil right to his own beliefs and no one has any authority to coerce anyone to believe anything. Most people in American churches believe that there are Christians in all denominations. When discussing the peculiar denominational beliefs of these churches, the members emphasize that each should be allowed to worship God in the manner in which he pleases and believe that God will accept the, worship of those in each denomination.
The fact that our civil government provides for the practice of religious differences should not be understood, however, to mean that God will accept every religious practice and belief. Satan is the author of the concept that God will accept every belief and practice. God has never revealed that he will accept every man's worship, just so long as he is good, honest and sincere. Rather, he revealed, "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them" (Isa. 8:20).
Does Everyone Have A Right To His Own Belief?

I just finished melting down a set of sterling flatware I bought on Ebay in late 2013. It was a rather common pattern called French Provincial by Towle. The set consisted of 12 salad forks, 12 dinner forks, 12 dinner spoons, 3 large serving spoons, 1 large serving fork, a pickle fork and a cocktail fork. There were several knives included but they have very little value as there is only a foil-thin layer of sterling on the handles and the blades are all stainless steel. My finished nuggets weigh in at just a hair over 4 lbs. The melt value of the pile in regard to the spot price of silver at the close of business on Friday is $923.86.

filmed out here in November 2012...back in town to do a story about a friend of mine. Ben was just 4 1/2 months old when they were first here and they were quite surprised how big he is now. The documentary "Microtopia" can be viewed for a $3.99 rental on vimeo. 72,78,40,0,B
