is this; what church, denomination, or belief system are
you, or have you, been affiliated with?
You'll do one of these;
A) Ignore the question altogether?
B) You'll give a vague answer?
C) You'll become agitated?
D) You'll say something like, "it's none of your business?"
E) You'll change the subject?
F) You'll get insulted?
Which will you do? Surprise me and answer truthfully?
Personally, when someone asks me this question, I give them
full disclosure, happily. However, there's a trend on TOL whereas,
posters don't like being honest about their religious background!
Sometimes they're 'hiding' what they're associated with. I think
it's because; they're afraid once posters know their background,
they'll not take their opinions seriously?
This is a public forum used for discussion! What if everyone
decided to cut an paste thousands of Scriptures without any
comments, intent, or purpose in mind? Why read those verses
on a Laptop then? In such a case, you should shut down your
Laptop, and go and read the Bible! You know what I mean?
LA uses Scripture as a 'weapon' against those she hates!
Therefore, in that context, why should I read "anything"
Sorry it took me so long to realize you had asked me a question!
I am 50.
A family man, 2 boys, 1 girl.
I work as a Linux System Engineer in North Carolina.
I enjoy a rousing Bible based discussion - especially when it can stay friendly.
I found my way here through a thread about Eternal Conscious Torment that prompted me to actually join the site.
I believe in progressive revelation and questioning everything.
In fact, recently I think this verse may have become one of my favorites:
"It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings." Proverbs 25:2
If you aren't asking questions - then this verse means absolutely nothing to you.
