Honeybee Bible Tract
« on: September 19, 2007, 01:00:02 PM »
Greetings !   About 20 years ago I happened to see a Bible tract that was titled something like  " The Incredible Honeybee " .  My recollection of precise details about this are uncertain , however I do recall that it mentioned that God gave the honeybee " exclusive contract " to make honey .  It impressed me enough to remember that all these years later .  I am searching for it now to pass out with gifts and free samples of our honey .  The American and Canadian Tract Society have no record of it in their archives .  Does anyone know where I can locate this ???
                                             
                                  For the KING  !!!

                              And for His kingdom !!!

it  might have been put out by a specific church.  mormons are big on honeybees/honey and used to do a lot of tract publication.  GP is logging a bunch of stuff and had some ATS in it, but not that.  not old enough?

if you remember where you were, you might be able to get a better handle on where to start your search.  a particular church or event?

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Thanks Kathy .   I am not familiar with "GP" you mentioned .   In my search I did uncover this from a site called "the Bible Says "  .  It claims that the same nectar that a honeybee uses to make honey can be used by the hermit spider to make one of the most deadly poisons known to man .  I would post a link  , except I dont know how .  As winter sets in I hope to take time to learn some new computer skills .    ---Burl---

the easiest way to post a link is to copy and paste from the address bar.  right click on the address, select copy, go to the place you want it and right click, select paste. 

as a newer member i don't know if you are able to post links yet.

not to worry about leaning.  most computer stuff is easy.  research is not.  there is so much info to sift through.  so easy to get off track.  it's a bit of an art form and sometimes you need to "feel the force" in order to stay on the correct path  :-)

Burl,

Private message me the link or email it photos@beemaster.com  and I will append it for you.  New members don't have the authority to post link or photos.  Unfortunately due to porn spamming, we have had to invoke this policy to protect our "family-friendly" environment.

Burl,

Glad to have you.  There are a great bunch of people here on these forums and we are always looking to add more.  We are fortunate to have so many members with such vast backgrounds.  We may not always agree, in fact I'm not sure we ever agree, :-P  but it is always good to discuss our different views in a civil manner.  We all learn around here, whether you want to or not.  :shock:

Join in the discussions and you'll have full member privileges in no time.

Rob...

Burl,

Did you have any luck finding the tract?   I'd be interested in seeing it if you did.
