Hi Everyone, I've known a few Baptists in Australia and they're all great people whose beliefs and theology are pretty close to my own. Never the less I know there are very different beliefs and theological underpinnings among Christians. I've visited a number of different Christian forums and found that different beliefs are not just different - they're often polarised to the point of bloody minded tribal fisticuffs. I know there are some diverse views on this site also, but from the little I've seen you seem to maintain a little more decorum in your discussions than is the case elsewhere. With your indulgence I'd like to stay around a while and talk.
