Looking forward to the post. :eugeek:
1Tim1:15-17
Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever.Amen.

Hi Everyone,

I'm Gilligan. I have been interested in OEC for a while now. Glad to be here.

NOTE: If I go offline suddenly, it is because I use a public computer at a library (because I don't have one at home) and I'm only allowed two one-hour sessions daily, and my time ran out for the day. If I don't respond to an active post I'm involved with right away, I will within a day or two.

Hi Everyone,

Yes I believe in God, and I guess most would call me a Christian, I however don't. For reasons I won't get into here.

I'm 55 yrs old and I got my first Bible(KJV) on my fifth birthday, from my Grandmother. I still have it. I have read the Bible from beginning to end more than I can count. Not because it's that many only that I honestly didn't care enough to count. I just wanted to read it to learn. I have just finished the OT, and I must admit I have learned more this time than any other. When I started I did it because I had run out of other things to read. So I decided to read it thru again. I had no thoughts of getting anything more than any of the times I had the other times.

I have many more questions now than before. However I have more answers also. I hope that's not too confusing. When I found this board and read some of the post. I felt this could be a blessing. I know I need somewhere I can go to talk about the many things in live and I hope this is it.

Then you should change your Profile to read that you are not a Christian.

And, welcome|!

Hi All

I am Mazzy, middle aged and I live in rural NSW and work as a social worker.

I returned to the Anglican Church about a year ago, after a long time being confused, although I am a baptized RC. I am still confused!

My current hobby is soap making, and it is the best, I reckon anyway.

I liked what I saw here re OEC and then found the forum. It was a breath of fresh air clearing some of the fog in my head. I am looking forward to some nice chats with you all. Thanks for having me.

OneMan, Welcome!

Learning about the Bible is a life-long process. It has so many layers of truth and there are certainly many portions that are difficult to understand - especially if one has not has some basic training in how to most effectively read and interpret it. While the KJV is a very important one (and you may have others), especially, in it day, there are now far better translations, as the knowledge of the original languages, scholarship and illuminations provided by new archaeological, historical finds and methodologies involved have greatly increased gotten substantially better (in many ways), it would tremendously help if you would buy a good, foot-noted study Bible. Here's a good one http://www.amazon.com/ESV-Study-Bible-C ... tudy+Bible and others might suggest one. From a scholarship point, the Bible is the most intensely and comprehensively studied and researched book in history. And so the knowledge Bible scholar teams can now bring to some of the better modern translations has helped tremendously by offering ever-better historical, cultural and Scriptural understandings. The ESV has fantastic maps, historical contexts of the development of the canon. When I was a young man.

As for Old Testament understandings, I can't recommend enough "Is God a Moral Monster" by Paul Copan: http://www.amazon.com/God-Moral-Monster ... al+Monster

If Danieltwotwenty has little twotwenty's he can go to the nearest St Vinnies or Community Services Centre and they may give him a bigger cardboard box and suggest safer bridge options to live under.
