    While looking at a couple old threads it made me think of some of the past members here.

    Yep, been here quite a while now, I guess. :tonofbricks:

    Began to think it might be fun to recall some of these people and maybe tell a little about what you remember about them.

    We've had some real characters here.

    Some I don't know what happened to them.

    Anyway, I'll start:

    I think just about everyone liked POB.

    What I remember most is that I don't think I've ever met anyone that was so head over heels in love with his wife.

    He went to Jesus. Said goodbye before he did.

    Great sense of humor.

    Very strong defender of "Free Grace", I learned a lot from him

    He would argue that "faith" was not a "work" and also would discover and would then oppose any suggestion that grace came through works and/or was maintained by works. I admired the strength of these arguments.

    He was the spelling cop on this board and let everyone know it!:)


    He went to Jesus.

    He had his Bible stolen out of his cab and obviously bothered him a lot because it had great value to him because of years of notes and all. He must have mentioned this 40 times or more.

    But now he is getting it first Hand.

    Miss him.

    That was a crazy time. I still talk to her from time to time. Miss the times we had here.

    Anyone heard from Dan Todd? I Am Blessed 24?

    I Am Blessed 24

    ADMINISTRATOR


    Was always there monitoring the fellowship forums and keeping them flowing.

    Changed her # after her name quite a few times.

    I don't know why she hasn't been here.

    She was one of my favorites. She lives in the same town my Dad was born in, Lincoln, Il. I do not know what happened to her.

    I remember Saturneptune, more humble than Moses, gracious in all his posts, always correct in his theological thoughts, always rightly dividing the Word, and motives beyond reproach.

    One of my favorites was Old Regular, from South Carolina. We talked a lot in PMs, and he gave me a lot of good advice. He just dropped off the radar several months ago. He is still on the rolls here, but has not responded to any of my PMs.

    One of the first posters I went to battle with was a guy named Baptist Pastor-Theologian in 2006. We finally came to like each other. He was banned for comments to another poster about a year later. Another one I always liked was SFIC, Standing Firm in Christ. His wife also posted but do not recall her name. It seemed to me his posts were always mild mannered, but for some unknown reason, he was also banned. I never did understand that one.

    Finally, perhaps others remember from Eastern Kentucky, an Old Regular Baptist elder named Elder Bob. He said what he thought, but I liked him.

    I miss many who are here no longer. I have learned that I can learn a lot from both those I agree with and with those I disagree with. I do wish we had more encouragement and fellowship rather than constant bickering.

    Is that why you're so respectful and polite to Calvinists?

    By pointing out that your behavior contradicts your words?

    One of my favs was N.Petreli (sp?)

    He cracked me up all the time! But he said what he thought and I think that's what got him banned. Bummer.

    He is 82 YO. He indicated he wants to honor God far more completely than this silly place. I sincerely hope that he is well.:praying:

    I miss good ol' BillWald who got banned for some unknown reason :tear:

    Maybe they are just lurking but I haven't seen TomVols and Bobby Hamilton post in a while. Hopefully they will show back up in time for college football season.
