    I appreciate the opportunity to join in a site such as this and hope that I can gleen from the many sources available here. Everyday I am more amazed at how Christ would want to forgive me and just pray that I will take advantage of the opportunities He affords me to show him my gratitude.:godisgood:

    Glad to have you. I don't know how much you've looked at here already, but just be prepared for conflict. In fact, as I saw the title of your thread, "First Day," I immediately thought this would have something to do with Sunday/a sabbath argument. That's how you can get trained to think on here.

    Hi there, and welcome...yes, Baptists are Baptists...they fuss and disagree because the Holy Spirit is the guide and men interpret His guidance differently, just like every Gospel written is not identical, even though all the facts are the same....ya know?

    But we are here because the Lord is good and His commandments are to serve Him, so we seek His face and we love Him!!!

    I've read a few of the discussion and have definitely see the "warm discussions"! A few seem to resemble "discussions" that my children have...different linguistic ability and talking points, but similar taunts.

    Hopefully I will get to see some positive discussions before I become too disenchanted. So far I am greatly enjoying everything and already learning from this site.

    Thank you to godly people that have spent so much of the time and effort to make this site what it is!

    Pastor, my home church here in Colorado has many Chappells as members, so you know where my doctrinal foundations are. :thumbs:

    There are IFB people here in this forum. I hope you stick around.

    Welcome! Just remember where you have three Baptists together you'll have at least four differing opinions! LOL

    It's always thought-provoking, interesting, and sometimes even maddening, but that's all part of the fun.

    Well maybe once. Salty thought he was wrong, but was mistaken.

    Oh, and welcome, BKruppa.

    DL, you are wrong - it would be 7 opinions, unless it is discussing C vs A but the total number of opinions would depend on KJV vs non KJV except for....
