    And you know something? I'm saved by the grace which came from Him with my belief in Christ as my Savior, not in how I interpret the length of the days referred to in the Genesis account, nor in Aimiel's interpretation of what constitutes a Christian.

    Yep, we are all saved by grace!

    I was not about to question your salvation. I was just asking a question....

    I understand. I just get kind hot when people start this kind of mess.

    Christians are Christians by receiving grace by their faith in Christ as their Savior. And we all don't believe or interpret everything the same way. Agreeing with one another in every point of doctrine is not what makes us Christian or otherwise.

    The webmaster stated the beliefs of the owners of this site. And I believe pretty much as they do, but I am OEC. It is possible for most Christians to disagree on some of the non-salvic issues and recognize each other as "real" Christians. Most.

    Sounds like we could just call them TOLians and be done with it.

    or Aimielians

    How old do you have to be to be an old earth creationist? I'm 35, but I still feel like a young creationist.

    I dunno. I'm 50, so I surely qualify.

    As far as I am concerned, the universe is just over 32 years old, and anyone who says it is older than that (like those of you who, insanely, maintain that it is at least 35) are to be regarded with suspicion.

    Funny, Lovejoy.

    OK, I appreciate the humor, folks, but let's not post any more of it in here. Knight would not want us (myself included) to spam this thread.

    I don't see that as an issue, neither do I see what you believe to be un-sound doctrine. I'm pretty much in the 'who cares' ballpark on that one. I believe what God said, although He never told us what (exactly) the terms 'without form and void' mean. It could mean that the earth was created, but not pressed into His 'cookie-cutter' yet, and we don't know how long before He began creation that it was 'void.'

    Or, perhaps, Bona fide Believer, for someone who subscribes to the TOL Statement of Faith.

    I'm not trying to say anyone isn't saved, merely want to allow those who don't have any glaring 'red flags' to be able to be designated as such.

    So which of these categories would you OECs post under?

    Mormon - Jehovah's Witness - Jewish - Muslim - Hindu - Buddhist - Agnostic - Atheist - Wiccan - Satanist - Pagan

    Crow,

    He already said that he doesn't see OECs as non-christians. I think you have misunderstood him from the beginning.
