Hi Eureka, welcome back :)
But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good.

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

Hello, Eureka! Welcome back!

BTW, I read your first posts, way back in 2012. You state you used to be a Christian, but you later lost your faith. Share a bit about why, please. Update us, if you will.

Glad you're here!

Hello everyone. I doubt anyone on here remembers me, but I used to spend a lot of time on this forum. I've been AWOL for a few years, but my brain is itching for some thoughtful, respectful philosophy. I'm glad to see that several veteran members are still active!
Welcome back Eureka!

Hello, My name is Lonnie Owens and yes I am a Christian..

Over the years I have been studying the Bible, well since 2013 anyways.

I was baptized SDA when I was 15 and when my mother passed away in 1998 I stopped going to church all together, but on January 17, 2013 at 5:30 am I was woken up from a dead sleep by a voice I had never heard before. The voice asked me one simple question, "Is your faith in me or the Bible?"

Keep in mind that I lived at the end of a gravel road and my closest neighbor was 1/4 mile from me...

the voice sounded as if it were right next to my ear and when I jolted up there was only me and my wife in the room and she was sound asleep and from that moment on I have been deep into the anatomy of the Bible and the doctrine of Christ.

Once God opens your eyes there is no going back to normal anymore because you are chosen and that is the end of that.

Welcome to the forum Lonnie.

You said:
The voice asked me one simple question, "Is your faith in me or the Bible?"
I'd ask you if you trust in Christ, and what he's done to secure your salvation, or to you trust in yourself to obey God's commandments?
John 5:24
24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

"Is your faith in me or the Bible?"
There's a difference between Who God is and what He says???!!! As if there would be a contradiction between God's inspired Words of Scripture and what He would otherwise say or intend? Faith in God also means having faith that what He says and promises are true.
