    That last question is a joke, ya don't gotta answer it. :D I do think Brother Tynedale had a good point in saying we should have more discussion on the good things of Christ, so this is an attempt to get some "better" topics out there and get to know each other as Christian brothers and sisters a bit more.

    1. I first heard about Jesus so early in life I can't remember.
    2. The goal of my Christian life is be conformed to His image.
    3. Without God, I would be non-existant, like everything else.
    4. If the bible were banned I would just have to be a criminal. We are to observe mans law until it clearly goes against God's law.
    5. The most comforting words in the bible are: (Nothing) shall be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
    6. The most convicting words in the bible are, "Unless ye repent ye shall all likewise perish."
    7. I don't understand this part of the bible. Gen. 6.
    8. I believe all Christians should, as Solomon concluded, "Worship God and keep His commands, for this is the entire duty of man."
    9. The last situation I witnessed in was to a J.W. coworker. I had read that they were very tough to reach and they are!
    10. My favorite promise from the bible is: "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."
    As for 11, well, a point could be made that all you will get is the same responces from everyone, but I cannot promise that I will never bring it up.

    1. I first heard about Jesus was probably sometime when I was still in my mom's tummy. The first time He truly revealed Himself to me was when I was around 11 years old... when I realized I was lost and separated from God.

    2. The goal of my Christian life is to honor God and to strive to be as willing as I need to be to follow His will.

    3. Without God, I would be dead.

    4. If the bible were banned I would finally have a good use for ability to sneak around.

    5. The most comforting words in the bible are found in Psalm 139.

    6. The most convicting words in the bible are found in the story of Christ's death.

    7. I don't understand bits and pieces here and there all over the Bible.

    8. I believe all Christians should strive to be able to set good examples and not be just "Sunday Christians."

    9. The last situation I witnessed in was in church last Sunday. I stood and gave somewhat of a testimony and tried to praise God.

    10. My favorite promise from the bible is "All things work for good for those who love the Lord."

    5. The most comforting words in the bible are "Well done, good and faithful servant;...enter thou into the joy of thy lord."
    6. The most convicting words in the bible are "Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:" The most horrible words ever.
    7. I don't understand this part of the bible. The part that says why God would love me.
    8. I believe all Christians should listen to the Spirit inside them.

    10. My favorite promise from the bible is I Thes 4:13-18 ...so shall we ever be with the Lord

    Great answers from all!
    I wonder how many people it would take to memorize the whole bible. It would be interesting to see a church take this on as a project. Goal of having the bible memorized in one year, chapters assigned to each member. It would probably have to be a very large church though. Hrm.
