    Hi all. This is my first post. I was raised by Christian parents in Southern Baptist churches. I was saved when I was 14, over 40 years ago.

    This forum is interesting to me because, normally I am one of the few Christians on forums where I post. It might be nice to be able to talk about Jesus and the Bible without being immediately attacked by people from all sides. I look forward to it!

    Welcome!
    You're still gonna be attacked by people from all sides. LOL No getting away from that in this life...however, there are rules here that help people refrain from going overboard and you have the added benefit of more people who agree with you. On the other hand, it feels ten times worse to be attacked by your own brothers and sisters.
    I think you'll find a good core group though and quickly learn who the linebackers are. When you do, avoid waving red flags in front of them and if you must wave a red flag, make sure you have a few clowns on the sidelines to divert them. :saint:
