  6. Good work on the upgrade, Chad. I, too, really missed the site while it was down.

    Here's to another chapter in the Talk-Jesus legacy!
  7. Wow, the site looks great, and I'm glad to see that it is finally up and running. Thanks Chad for all your diligent efforts in putting together this new, revamped Talk Jesus!
  8. Love, love love the new upgrade Chad, thank you!
  9. I like it...only whats with all the astricks every time you type something in chat?
  10. I always check out a book in the public library for all my spiritual reference books so I am sure I love the book and it is filled with correct interpretations of the Word of God before making a purchase to use the book for reference. I will make sure to use the bookstore to purchase them when I come across a great book for my study.
  11. The new software certainly improves the interaction between the user
    and TJ. Well done Chad.

  15. Whose a clever boy then? Well done. God bless He does...for your labour for the cause of Christ and His kingdom.
  16. Matthew 25:21 His Lord said unto him, Well done, [thou] good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of they lord.
  17. Your silly brother :D I'm not the one in gold, that's an entertainer. I'm on the left in black shirt. My friend Ron in on the right.
