We’ve had a great discussion through this topic. Its a biggy. At least I believe it is. I’ve written out much of post #5 and wanted to get it out there for y’all before the night was through, but its not going to happen. Maybe tomorrow evening it will be ready for me to hit ‘Publish’. I also think there will have to be a post #6. I just can’t cover all that I’ve been reading & learning in just one more post. So much to read and consider as you all know. But I would like to say right off the start, before #5 comes out and you start debating on a subject you have to ask yourself why you are involved in the conversation at all. When all is said and done and you find that Scripture really does say a certain thing, are you going to make the changes that are necessary to follow God’s plan? Are you going to surrender to the truth you find no matter what it is? Or are you constantly looking for a Scripture that you can back up the comfortable traditions & lessons you have been indoctrinated with all your life. Status quo is good if you don’t care about growth in Christ. Are you looking for truth or are you on the defense? Are you going to change according to what you learn? If no, then don’t bother. Just being honest (as usual).
