No, I'm not coming out of retirement. You don't retire from God. But I have perused the board today and I'm glad people here are still fighting the good fight. Very well done, friends. I see, too, that even in my absence my name was on the fingers of some here, accusing my typing of being hard to understand or accusing me of being a "bad speller". I think that is cute. I was a state spelling champion in my younger days, and pride myself on my spelling skills. So, no, I rarely ever misspell a word unless I'm typing fast to get a thought down without forgetting it. Thanks for making mention of me, though, especially in a thread that wasn't even related to me. That was appreciated, as I know I had/have an influence on your thinking, as do you to mine.

I am not going to be here as often as before. I have other things on my plate that are important, also, and don't have time to post as often. I did check out a few other Christian forums while I was away. Same thing in other places as here. Some good debate. Some people with bad attitudes trying to force their doctrines down others' throats. I guess that's the norm everywhere, where there is a passion for one's religion. And too, I won't be engaging in as much debate as before. I don't see a point in it. I might make a point or two. Maybe a reference to a verse. But there's no point in beating someone over the head with my laptop and it's Biblical software (see how I modernized the old phrase?). That's useless other than to anger people to the point of sinning. I'm not doing that any more.

So, enjoy your particular brand of religion, and I'll enjoy mine, and hopefully we will all meet at the same place in the afterlife.

Hey dude, glad you are still here. I rarely visit here anymore. I'm slowly returning to blogging. Drop in sometimes and comment...anyone else is welcome to comment as well.

Its a work in progress - overlook my spelling and grammar. I often misspell and have numerous typos.

Btw, on one on my post, I cited a statement you made regarding church. You will notice that as you read through the "Home Church" thread on my blog. Feel free to comment as SeekingWanderer. Also, I do have a mixture of Blogs on my blogroll, even Calvinist sites. I'm trying to gather as many from various POV's to my blog to make things more interesting and not so one-sided. I have an ex Pentecostal Preacher turned baptist ( my cousins ) who plans to defend Pretrib, the Rapture, and other things he and disagree. As you, I too, am trying to take a new approach, although I still refuse to line up with any group.

Here is the post that I used a comment from you. I refer to you as a friend. http://speakwherethebiblespeaks.wordpress.com...

Also, you will notice, I try to be brief as possible with my post on the blog because frankly its hard finding time for long drawn-out post. I will be adding daily to the 'Hit List' and some to Calvinist sites as well as the Resources section. Well, Im logging off here and gonna post some comments on some blogs or read them. ttyl

Well , after seeing some of the other people, who have took up the good fight.

It is refreshing to see some people, who can think for theirselves and not have to copy and paste someone else's works.

I'd rather debate a person , then an commentary....:0 .

I have thought about doing the blog thing, it would give a person more freedom to expound on subjects.

I know we agree to disagree, but some of the people who have posted here, whew , can't and won't answer a question...lol.

You was a member of Wordpress once, right? As you know its not too difficult to set up blogs there. Im pretty much fed up with Topix. Even if you dont, feel free to comment on mine. I know we will disagree and if I cant answer, I will tell you so. Believe me, I am far from having the answers.
