    Well, least you got a sense of humor. The point is not to find something to call you, or label you, however, I've found in the past that sometimes, equating a proposition to a known fallacy has a "wake up" effect. There are many "insightful philosophies" out there that can appear acceptable, untill it is known that they originate in a false paradigm like, say, environmentalism which comes from Wiccan, and Buddhist philosophy.


    And I got some studying to do here shortly, too.

    Everyone knows something I don't.

    2 Chronicles 7:14
    14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

    If you can't personal attack I guess people can only go after what you actually POST and have to SPECULATE on the rest.

    It gets old you can post about topic A and somebody else continually blasts away on your beliefs on topic B as a reason you must not have it together on topic A....

    Well, some of my views may be shared by Unitarians, JW's, "fundies", Catholics, Anglicans, Baptist, and Arian-orientated Christian religions (among maybe some others)

    Of course. But after all is said and done, there is ONE TRUTH and ONE TRUTH ONLY. The rest is just garbage.

    Happy to narrow it down for you. How 'bout yourself boot?

    Uh, how 'bout myself? You want me to narrow things down? Heck, sys. I thought I HAVE been pretty narrow. The truth follows a very narrow path and does not waver.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    I hope I've set a record of not being confrontational, but that is the only idea I can come up with when I get no answer, only a dismissal. I'm looking for a 'I don't want to answer about the universality of the trinity doctrine', or 'I will not answer the question you crazy mormon" or whatever. (but no shirley!)

    I belong to the church of Christ; the church of the Living God. But I attend a non-denom. It has no affiliation name. It is not a Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Episcopal, Catholic, or any other denomination. I have posted this before. I figured you would have remembered. Maybe you do remember but do not understand "non-denom". So there ya are...what non-denom means.

    That seems to be the trend, non-denom churches. The one I joined about a year and a half ago is non denom but still is in a local baptist association, so what's that tell me?... Anyway, with the events of the past 3 or 4 months I think it's 99% certain that a split is in the works. The church that I'll most likely be attending next is also a non-denom. I just need to see if I can find out what the deeper ties are and make sure there's no conflict of ...of... hmm, if i remember that word i'll edit later.

    Yup. If, when held up to the light of Scripture, they generate doubt of being "on the level", as you say, then it's time to move on.

    Of course you could have some fun and just hang out for a while just being a pain in someones assessment of scripture. The church we went to a few years ago just split, for the same reasons we left a year before. Everyone who thought we were the goofy ones for having issues, are themselves the ones that left. Splits ain't easy to deal with. Sorry icc. I seen the perfect church once, nice old fasioned style, steeple, bell tower, and all the money it needed. The best part was the people, the only ones ever went near the place were the ones dropping coins into it. Soon as you add people to a perfect church though, problems arise, and it ain't perfect anymore.

    I think now, it is not our job to be fed by a church, our job as Christians, is to be fed at home, in the Word, and take that strength to church for building it up. If they won't be built up, it's still our job to continue drawing strength from Jesus in the Word, and only leave when He tells us to.

    Stay in the Word amigo, these things can get as ugly as we are, but you've got an endless strength supply.

    I now attend a church that holds to a doctrine on baptism, and a couple other small things, that I disagree with. Maybe God led us there, so we could help their understanding, maybe so they could help ours. The thing that shines to me though, is, despite the fact they know my perception on baptism, and that I disagree with them, firmly, they don't care. One of the elders and me were even doing a Bible study together, in of all things, the book of acts. It took us three meetings to get through Acts 2:38, and still have no real agreement on it, but it don't stand between us either. Any church that attempts to make the claim, "...I am the way, the truth, and the life..." is dangerouse, that's where cults begin, but any Church that will take two opposing views and sit down with scripture to investigate them both is a good congregation.
