Yes, I too was brought to Christ not by arguments such as the one which I posted. However, the truth must always be told. If the truth offends even my brothers then what message are we putting our faith in? I will stand firm to my beliefs founded in Christ and Him alone. The Bible is very direct when it comes to worshiping false gods and so should we. The first commandment is "I am the Lord your God, thou shall have no strange gods before me." And many Biblical men have stood before false gods and proclaimed the One and true God. There is not one time in scripture that God tip toes around such a sin, then how can we?

Truth is fine within the guidelines of this board tire

tire,

I respect your beliefs but I must bring to your attention the RULES of this board upon which you are posting:

~~~~~
The idea here is support, so please don't pressure others to adopt your beliefs or put them down for having theirs. Sorry, but this may mean not posting some aspects of some beliefs. In particular, agnostic and atheistic views are now considered not to be supportive of religious faith. Since these issues first came up(http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/admin/20010718/msgs/1854.html), there's been discussion of possible exceptions9http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/admin/20020918/msgs/7871.html) and specific examples(http://www.dr-bob.org/babble/admin/20020918/msgs/7889.html), and these guidelines may still be in a state of some flux. It's a challenge to foster this kind of discussion.
~~~~~

If you choose to stand firm in your beliefs founded in Christ and to him alone then it seems that doesn't jibe with the rules set forth above. No one is putting down your beliefs. This board only asks you have the same respect for others which "may mean not posting some aspects of some beliefs."

I'm not discouraging you. I think it is wonderful you have a strong faith and believe so firmly in truth *as you understand it*. I would like for you to remain and discuss whatever it is that you need to here but to do so under the above guidelines that one agrees to when they register to post on Psycho-Babble et al.

Good luck.

Might as well jump in. I have a Christian (Baptist) background. Because my religion expects you make a public profession of faith, I did not become a Christion until I was 34. I am 53 now. Over these nearly 20 years I have tried to understand God's PURPOSE more so than His truth. Becoming a Christian means selflessness, submission and thankfulness. It does not mean you will be healed, have a happy life or be loved. It simply means faith...period.
