    Hi everyone. I just joined so I thought I'd try a post. At first I was having trouble passing the "I Am Not a Robot" test and I thought I was going to have study more and then come back. I stumbled onto this site and have been following some threads for a few days and it looks interesting. Thanks

    Thanks Salty. Not much to tell. I've been in a Reformed Baptist church for the past 12 years but came from a fundamental Baptist and Bible church background. I'm retired now so probably spend too much time on here since I'm not on facebook. I guess I picked a bad name - there are way too many Dave's.

    Welcome!!!

    I hate Facebook. At times, I have resorted to having an account for as long as I needed it for what I needed to get done. Then I deleted it. Facebook has never been my happyplace. LOL.

    Why the change from IFB to Reformed?
    Dave X makes you sound perplexing and uncanning!

    So what kind of job did you retire from?
    Hobbies,
    Pineapple on PizzA???

    To many "I am not a robot" means you are not a Calvinist. Welcome, BTW, I'm a Calvinist and would rather have God direct my steps than me direct them.

    Welcome to the BB forum, @DaveXR650. This is a great place for discussing a wide variety of topics. The people here have a wide variety of views on a variety of topics. Even when we disagree, we manage to keep the discussions (mostly) civil.
    I am a fairly recent "convert" to Reformed Theology, and I enjoy learning from what others on this forum think. Blessings, Brother.

    Yeah, sometimes I look at the language patterns here and I think these must be Russian bots! It would be fun for a couple of seminary students who are also computer nerds to set up a site or at least a "person" who could argue theology all day and see how long it takes us to figure it out.

    Welcome, Dave, though you've posting for quite a while now.
    It's good to have you on board.

    I would be happy to change the name. I don't know how to be honest.

    My name is a common name. I start right off using my middle name in most classes and forums, and that is usually enough. The X after your name stands out sharply. An avatar picture will help even more.
