Dear ones, One of the moderators has asked me to not post in the forums of debate on this site any longer, as I am not a Baptist any more. I guess spending the first 27 years of my life as a Baptist doesn't count for much...Anyhoo, here was my response to him. It's been fun debating things with all of you, and I hope that each and every one of comes to a place in our lives where we can get past petty differences (denominational and otherwise) and truly get to the business of winning people for Christ... My response: "I will discontinue posting on your site all together, then. The only threads that are remotely important to me are the ones in which open and honest debate can take place, and those are the ones in which I post. I am not a trouble maker, I don't put others down, and it should be fairly obvious to you that I am truly here to learn/debate important topics. This is yet another reason why I left the Baptist church. There is no room for anything else. It's not about relationship, it's about rules and strctily defending and adhering to YOUR interpretaion of the Bible. That's not what Christ called any of us to do, and it's certainly not what we should be about. I've enjoyed my time here, so...Vaya con dios!!=)"
