Welcome to MandoMutt!!! Thanks for dropping in on our website. MandoMutt, Delilah (aka L’il Pup) and I are so glad you’re here and we hope you’ll enjoy your visit. Whether you’re here looking at one of our acoustic stringed instruments to purchase, trade or just “window shopping”, we hope you like what you see and that you’ll add us to your web favorites and continue to check back with us periodically to check our inventory. We have several new additions to our inventory this week including;
MandoMutt’s Return Policy We offer a 48 hour Approval period on all instrument purchases, but not on trade deals. If you purchase an instrument from us and decide within 48 hours of receipt that it’s not for you, you may return it to us, no questions asked. Buyer is responsible for all shipping fees in event of a return. Additionally, we only accept a return if the instrument is returned in the exact condition as when it left our hands. We will not accept returns if any alterations or modifications of any kind, have been made to the instrument. This includes truss rod adjustments, bridge adjustments or any other alteration, modification or adjustment and so forth.
A word about the MandoMutt Beyond Beast award. As many of our frequent visitors know, our very best instruments may be awarded as a Beyond Beast. You may wonder, just how do we determine a Beyond Beast. We actually have a 30 point number system and six categories, with five being the highest and one being the lowest score in each category. An instrument must score a 28 out 30, or better to be recognized as a Beyond Beast. The six categories are: 1) Tone 2) Volume 3) Fit and Finish 4) Set up and Playability 5) Appointments (bling?) 6) Cosmetic Condition (wear and tear)
As a Christian I should be trying to live a Christian life. I should practice what I preach and live what I learn from the Bible. The Bible is my blueprint and my road map and is very specific on how I should live my life. The Ten Commandments are to be followed 100% of the time, not just on days that I feel good or when things are going well in my life.
James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. This is one of those Bible verses that cuts to the quick. No doubt about what James is saying in this verse. If I know what the Bible tells me to do and don’t do it, it’s a sin. I’m told to love my neighbor,as myself. If I don’t, it’s sinful. When I take a few sheets of printer paper from work, it’s a sin. When the cashier at Kroger gives me $5 too much in change, and I don’t give it back to her….sin. If I look at women lustfully, it’s a sin. When I consume alcohol because I’ve had a rotten day and I don’t like the way I feel, it’s sinful.
It’s very difficult to live a true Christian life, particularly in today’s world. With the internet, social media, video games, cable and satellite television, cell phones and so on, It’s so easy to be drawn into doing those things that are not “good”. We know they’re not good. Our conscience tells us we’re doing wrong or acting inappropriately and yet we do it anyway. That’s sinful.
Often times, our only defense against this disobedient behavior is prayer. Sometimes the urge to commit that which we know is not good is so strong, we may need to pray constantly until the temptation has been removed, but God will hear us and will answer our plea.
A Christian can take comfort in 1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
Quote for the day; “Education is useless without the Bible.” Noah Webster
Thought for the day; Why do so many drivers on the Intersate highways drive with their high beams on at night?
