Please get off this board and spend your time on your own faith and threads. You bring NOTHING to the discussion. You refuse to comment on ANYTHING scriptural that I post...in a word...f off.
I have commented on your Scriptural posts. Your buddies tend not to. So are you going to tell them to leave and curse at them they way you have done to me?

I have a better idea: I'll tell abt the "bad ones," and you can handle all the good works.

YES....TA did. He said that I would not call out the opther poters on these threads....and I would if it was/is warranted. It says that my character is that of a LIAR. You need to learn some basics. I said that I would. I don't lie and I have no reason to do so.

My my, this thread has turned into bashing a women, how manly.

ANYWAY, the subject is people being allowed to believe as they choose, through relationship with the LIVING GOD without fear of excommunication or eternal damnation.

How refreshing..........
