    Hi all,

    I have been praying the last couple of days and I realized that I have spent entirely too much time thinking about discussions on this board. I realized that this is time that I would much rather spend meditating on God's Word, my family, etc. In other words, I realized that I really don't need to be participating in this discussion anymore. For those who have responded to my posts, I do apologize for tabling my side of the argument. Nothing personal, but I don't want to get trapped into continuing to post here indefinitely. I really don't know where this debate is going, but I don't want carry this on for years on end.

    I pray that God uses us for His glory and that we all can remember to focus on what unites us and what is more important than "proper" theology. Not that I am against defending the truth (whatever that is [​IMG] ), but I just don't see this discussion going anywhere.

    For those interested, I am moving and my family and I are hopefully going to serve as short term missionaries in Kenya for over half a year. We will be working with my in-laws who have been there for almost thirty years. My family, the Calvinists, and my in-laws, the Arminians...working together to share God's gospel...it can be done!

    I hope no one feels judged by this post, I am not judging anyone, but for me, I want to meditate on other things instead of the next post on this board.

    I have not read the other threads that I have started, and if one wants to "declare victory" over my points due to my silence, then so be it. I honestly won't mind.

    May God protect you and your families from the effects of culture shock, and may you Grow in grace and the Knowledge of God while you serve.

    PS: I do hope your "in-Laws" have a deep spiritual effect on your persuasion.

    God's blessings to you an your family as you minister in Kenya.

    Calvinists and Armninians can work well -- in fact very well together when it comes to sharing God's word and evangelizing - because as it turns out - they both do it the same way using the same style of appeals and the same methods.

    I am sure this will be a great blessing to the people there in Kenya.

    In Christ,

    i almost wonder if God allowed Calvinists and Arminians to find their respective views to sharpen each other and cause us to delve back into the word? I know this debate has done more than any other to drive me to the cross. It has surely been useful, then, to me.
