  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

I don't get it?

    After all these years I still don't get it. I wouldn't want to die without understanding it. Bolt cutters? How can bolt cutters cut through steel/metal??? Who could have the muscle to squeeze the handles. It's an on going puzzle to me.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Metal is rated in several ways, including hardness and malleability. The bolt is hard, but not as hard as the cutter. It is more malleable than the cutter, meaning that as the cutter presses against it, it 'squeezes' away from the pressure.

    Mostly I was thinking of the pad locks they cut with them.

    I worked for an employer whose wife and daughter joked about his mechanical abilities. They said if someone gave him a screwdriver, he wouldn't know which end to hold. On the other hand, he did know how to run a successful business.

    Leverage has a lot to do with it also.

    The design of the pinchers and the leverage is it. Yes the steel plays a role but leverage is king in the world
