Just curious about the different reasons people have stayed and not left...

Or why people have left and chosen to come back

I like the people here. The interactions and content would make some good material for a thesis.

Titles would be:

"Scientist, Christians and Atheists - out of the chaos comes higher learning"

Rick:
"Sarcasm in Christianity - a new tool for theological and spiritual development"

Philip:
"Indisputable biblical commentary - telling it how it is and it's affect on humanity"

1over137:
"Scientists in Christ - from theoretical physics to salvation in (almost) one easy step"

Nessa:
"Christians on a forum - the importance of always coming back to help"

B.W.:
"Bible scripture on forums - getting it right always wins over incorrect theology"

Melanie:
"When heart and mind work together for the betterment of humanity - a theological view"

Kureiuo:
"Stepping down as a mod - the importance of remaining in a Christian orientated forum"

Hamster:
"Continually talking about Christian Mysticism - are we taking dangerous risks or helping our fellow man?"

Stu:
"Evolution in in theology - proving there is more than meets the scientific eye"

Claysmthr:
"Conspiracies in in a Christian world - making people think twice about their view of reality"

Thatkid:
"Visiting forums may not always be what you expect - a Christians view of GodandScience"

Ged and DBowling:
"A Christian on a forum - how to give support through scripture and proper interpretation of the bible"

Dose !:
"Arguments opposing the truth - cementing theology by taking the opposite view"


Merry Christmas and Love to you All.

That's not fair. I respect Hana, as an intelligent woman. I wouldn't ask her to make me a sammich.


Hana, make me Šišky.

I'm still waiting for those homemade cookies and mulk. :wave:

I like the people here despite the disagreements we may have and I learn new things and I like to be challenged about my biblical views from other knowledgable Christians.I don't take it personal when someody disagrees with me and never have.But if they cannot convince me biblically why I'm wrong I really don't care about what their personal view or opinion is about it. I strive to "Let God be true and every man a liar" I try to live by this when it comes to my biblical understanding. I have changed my mind and views many times when I was shown to be wrong or I realized I was wrong but it is all based on what the bible says and not what good intentioned Christians think about it. I also like to try to share my knowledge with others in order to help them understand the bible better.I moved again recently and I did not have internet for awhile so I have'nt been around for awhile but it was just because I did not have internet. I never really left. I did not get to tell everybody here Merry Christma like I usually do and post Christmas music,etc but I would've if I was here.

Hebrews 12:2-3 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,despising the shame,and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

2nd Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,lest the light of this glorious gospel of Christ,who is the image of God,should shine unto them.

We are all different. Different interpretations of scripture; over/under emphasis etc. We exist in a fallen state on this earth but can rest assured we will know the truth in heaven.
