Answer is here:
ONE CANNOT GET A PRIME RATE HOME LOAN WITHOUT A GOOD CREDIT SCORE.
Certainly, one can get a home loan without a credit score if one shops well, but it will not be a good rate.
THESE DAYS, JOBS REQUIRE CREDIT CHECKS.
Again, briefly, many people will point out that Dave hasn't had to apply for a job in over 20 years, and just cannot see that having good credit is needed for some things.
GETTING GOOD RATES ON INSURANCE DEPENDS ON A GOOD CREDIT SCORE.
And this is the third main area that Dave's credit advice really fails so many people.
The Holy Spirit has led us to the decision that no burden should be placed on you other than these essentials: refuse food offered to idols, blood, the meat from strangled animals, and sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid such things.Again, these are not listed as being sins, but as common sense things to avoid. Clearly also, the Apostles wanted Christians to show love for God and for other people.
A transgression of a religious or moral law, especially when deliberate.That link also has another good statement of what sin is: "Deliberate disobedience to the known will of God."
When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had left the Sadducees speechless, they met together. One of them, a legal expert, tested him. “Teacher, what is the greatest commandment in the Law?”Naturally, Jesus had a lot more to say on the issue, but this summed it up well. To sin would be to violate either of these two concepts.
He replied, “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your being, and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: You must love your neighbor as you love yourself. All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commands.”
These are my thoughts, not those expressed in the book:
Just because I say that Judo style groundwork is explosive does NOT mean that it is always lightning quick. What it does mean is that Judo-based groundwork has far fewer techniques. The concept is that the player attacks immediately once she realizes where she is at. Also included is the idea of attacking the transition - before a set position is established. This applies to escapes as well as finishes from dominant positions.
Just because I say that BJJ groundwork is laborious does not mean that it is always long and drawn-out. What is does mean is that there is a more well-defined progression through a series of escapes and passes and on to dominant positions and then to submissions. Because of the road map of positional advances, there are MANY options for attack and defense at each position.
As they apply to MMA and Self Defense
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and Self Defense are similar in that simplicity is the key. One only "needs" a few options from each position. When done correctly, the practitioner will attack with option A. If that fails, the practitioner will transition to attack with option B. If that fails, it is on to option C, or back to option A again. No need for hundreds of positions and permutations.
"I have a job. I exchange hours of my life for money. In that context, the government is literally taking my life. Taking the life of another is the most heinous crime.
The founding fathers had it right. The federal government was to be supported solely by import and export duties. The income tax and federal reserve are the original sins that grew our government into what it is today."
