Visitors come to these blogs and feel dissapointed in the so-called body of Christ! Any visitors to confirm?
---OK on 7/18/07

I was a visitor once upon a time. My first impression was: this is a very diverse blog. Very open and honest people. Many opinions and ideas, which is great. Everyone thinks differently and have their own opinions about certain topics. There is only one truth but reading the different posts by different bloggers is entertaining. Most bloggers here consider themselves Christians. I found it stimulating and still do. I come here everyday and post.
---Robyn on 7/18/07

Depends on the visitor I think.

Loon songs heard here. Loons are smart. Especially in the way they distract you to protect their babies. Baby loons ride on Mom's back. Donna, I believe only Jesus Christ can bridge the gaps and tear down the dividing walls between denominations; when Jesus comes again.

They may think we are all a bunch of "nuts"!

I don't see this as an attempt to present Christianity to unbelievers. The "squabbles" don't show us at our best, but they indicate that beliefs are deeply held. Our discussions might spark an interest in the Bible or further study...and that's good. This forum allows me to learn from others and to exchange ideas with a wider group than just my church.
---Donna2277 on 11/1/06

I wonder if the non-Christian thinks we are a club with exclusive membership privileges? I wonder if we present the Christian life in a way that anyone out there would want it? I wonder where we should draw the line between arguing for God's truth and punching them around with our words.
I wonder how we keeps our houses clean if we stay on the computer all day. I'm believing keeping your heart clean is more important.

I like your commentary, Wayne. I hope you stick around. There are oxen and donkeys. Those who pull their load and those who bray. That is a slice of the real world though, isn't it?
---anonymous on 10/28/06

I was a visitor at first. My reaction was that here was a place where there could be honest expression of views. Some believed the Bible, others didn't. Some exalted Him, others leaned on human reasoning. Was interesting and fun to get acquainted with each bloggers thinking as revealed in their posts. Those who really had a care for others were revealed in sharp contrast to those who were aboard simply to pursue an agenda. It has been a great experience.

greetings,tradition has taught tradition that has taught tradition to stay inside the box and do not come is unsafe out is not unusual that many men think that one's own searching for 'Truth' and his answers is unGodlike.traditionalist teach you must be taught tradition.does this sound familiar?the 'box' hotel is full.'no vacancy'.

Topfu; The quotes are all from the KJV. I have quoted them before on another blog. In the past when I quoted them all bailed Want me to quote them?

Sola scriptora is a man-made concept, from Luther 400 years ago.
---MikeM on 10/27/06

I come from the view of an old maxim, 'if ones faith cannot stand the test of free inquiry, its finished." I believe in debate not argument. There is faith, then there is irrationality. One can say, "I by faith believe the ocean does not exist" I would take them to the beach, but many would clench their eyes and say, "It does not exist, dont confuse me with facts" That often happens; that is not faith but irrational denial.
---MikeM on 10/27/06

MikeM, if your Bible quotes a dozen other books as scripture, you need to find a new Bible. You dont believe our current Bible is inerrant, which creates a major problem. Let me put it like this... You said, "The Bible speaks of a 'falling away'-an apostacy"... well, how do you know that isnt something added by man since you believe there are other Bible errors? How can you trust a single scripture? Gotta have faith in God. He provided exactly what we need, word for word.
---tofurabby on 10/27/06

Julie ... the trouble is, it is only a few people who contribute here. And all have their points of view, Some hold those with absolute tenacity and deny that any other view has validity, others are prepared to discuss more reasonably. Others are swayed thios way and that by what seem for the moment to be good points ... until the opposing one comes along.
But you are right ... they are all minor points and diversions from the Truth
---alan8869_of_UK on 10/27/06

It seems there are a few people who instead of addressing the "issue or blog" to the person who sent it, it is more about them "battling" it out with each other and seeing who is right and wrong. Some of us have true concerns and aren't into the arguments. I watched for the first few responses and then didn't even check for a week because I knew it would just be arugments back and forth with people.
---marie on 10/27/06

Quite frankly, I find these blogs argumentative and repetitive. It seems like a small handful of people are bickering among themselves regarding some basic points that will never be settled, instead of just agreeing to disagree and moving on. I'm not saying they're wrong, nor am I saying they're right, but should our actions towards each other speak louder than words? Should we not preach the gospel first, then only if necessary, use words?

Tofu; The Bible speaks of a 'falling away'-an apostacy. The Bible quotes a dozen other books, as scripture. The problem is man. I do not see the Roman Bishops as inspired in their efforts, scripture spoke of men like them. As Luther said, "From the time of Constantine little of Christ was seen in the (Roman) Church." 'Holy' Wars, pograms, inqusitions, persecutions, etc etc etc all show the fruit of traditional Christianity are less than Christlike. By their fruits ye shall know them.
---MikeM on 10/27/06

Sounds like MikeM has more faith in man than God. Seems like someone that thinks they have such high intelligence would put it together that God has enough power to script the historical events that led to our Bible as we know it. If you deny God that power, you may want to examine yourself to see if you are truly as smart as you think. There were a few more than 1 manuscript copies available. Also, If any other source was used for your translation, you may want to switch versions.
---tofurabby on 10/26/06

The council of Nicea was an exercise in politics. Also, the Bible itself quotes over a dozen other books, and not just the apocyrpha. Sola scriptora was coined by Luther, who rejected it later, as he rejected several NT books. My point? The 'Church' went into apostasy by around 100ad. Theere was no 'Bible' for the apostles, and it was compiled by men with many agendas.
---MikeM on 10/25/06

MikeM, I choose to believe that God is in charge of His Word, and that His Word does not change. He guides it's passage through time. So yes, although we humans are fallible, God is not. And the different Bible translations ARE checked for accuracy against original manuscripts, and by many leaders from different church denominations. There is little room for inaccuracies.

And in addition to the previous message I wrote, there are THOUSANDS of Bible manuscripts available to scholars covering the last 2000 years. There is little space for error, as they all agree. It is called textual criticism. So, sorry, but the Bible is NOT in error but rather is "given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" - 2 Tim. 3:16
---laure5759 on 10/25/06

And 'Scripture' has always, since the Council at Nicea, been understood by every Christian to be the 66 books that form the Canon of Scripture. Anything else is heretical. And here is the key - these books are accepted by all. There is no query against any of these 66 books - except by people who are not Christians anyway.
---laure5759 on 10/25/06

I think when they see someone picking on another person's answer, instead of answering the question at hand, they must think, "oh boy, another mixed up group." Yet if they see Scriptures being backed by people's responses, then they could possibly say, "wow, I never knew that scripture existed before."
---Donna9759 on 10/24/06

"the Bible is not in error" The writers of the Bible were not in error, but man is. Parts were put in and taken out throughout history, the Bible quotes a doaen other books as scripture. Man leads astray, and has interjected himself into scripture for centuries, history 101. God endowed us with reason, we dont check in our brains at the front door of church.

2 Timothy 3:16- all 'which' scripture?

Nothing wrong with fundamentalism. I make it a point to quote scripture as often as possible. After all, the Bible is not in error and cannot lead the visitors astray... it is our human opinions that we inject into the scripture that may or may not be in question. I find it's best to let the scriptures do all the talking.

2 Timothy 3:16
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

Giving opinions are good, but I don't have to be you, and you don't have to be me. God loves you and God loves me, so lets share opinions without knocking down one another. Bind us together in love is all about accepting one another without haveing to attack the person.

Visitors come to avoid another story about celebrity breakups. Visitors come to avoid seeing skeletal girls carrying dogs in purses. Visitors come because loved ones are in Iraq. Visitors come from all nations to learn about Jesus. "I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the nations shall know that I am the Lord," says the Lord God, "when I am hallowed in you before their eyes." Ezek 36:23 Rachel^^^
---Rachel on 10/23/06

In a way, I agree with MikeM. Which is why I said that we need to all table what we believe, and not attack other's beliefs. We need to present the questioner with a forum of options. I do not regard myself as a fundamentalist - in respect to SOME aspects of my belief.

Christianity is exciting. Some of the blogs are rollercoaster rides. 'O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!' You can murmur, pout, whine, bawl your head off, but here you are again. It's a new day. It's a new day! You might as well face it, you're addicted to Christianet. I say to the readers, why not jump in, the water is fine.
---Raine on 10/23/06

This is a fundamentalist site. But the moderators can't be all bad, as they let someone like me post. They figure maybe I will 'see the light' and become a fundamentalist or they feel I 'keep the true believers on their toes.'Visitors seeing my 'irratating posts' ignore them, try to refute them, or will discuss them. If I am an irratation, I want to at least be an interesting one.

As for me, NOTHING is more important than who and what Jesus is, and what he means to each and every individual.
---MikeM on 10/23/06

I think they see people argument, not discussing, and anger, not understanding.

I agree with Grace. Also,people have been 'argueing' about their faith since thousands of years ago. I bet the diciples sat around and argued religion! Just because they argue does not mean they're bad, or judging or whatever. I think it means they just have a healthy urge to teach and learn.
---sue on 10/23/06

What do you want them to think and what do you contribute to it?
Many here who are called harsh have to be defenders of the faith because many have a lack of knowledge and present error as truth.
God laid out a simple guideline as to how to find the Truth. Many don't go by it.
---Elder on 10/22/06

I agree with Mary. We are all different in how we face the realities of living in a world of sin, and we need to realise that other people do not always see things the same way we do, and yet they believe in the same God we do. That these blogs are a forum for us to present our perceptions, so that someone who is asking questions can have a range of ideas to relate to. Let's stop attacking one another.
---laure5759 on 10/22/06

Binding everyone together in love so we all fall in the ditch, is not a good plan. Love, peace, unity, can be deceptive. Apostate church will be full of love. If we just love one another, love you sister,love you brother, you're my favorite blogger. Forget answering any questions. If there were only two denominations, questions and disagreements would come. I say bring it, while freedom of religious speech is with us. I celebrate having the guts to say what you really mean.

I have read many of these blogs in the last few days and I think there is much judgeing, and putting each other down. This should not be. Bind us together Lord, Bind us together in love.

Maybe we should ask the visitors?
---lynet on 10/22/06

I know what my first impression was and it was a good one. I finally found someplace where people can ask intelligent questions regarding Christianity and everyone can voice their opinion in a nice Christian manner. It's not always easy to find so many people with diverse beliefs and almost always agreeing with the same thing. I think it is good to be able to speak your mind and know that you are not being critized, at leaset not all of the time.
---Norma7374 on 10/22/06

I'm sure that their feelings will vary tremendously depending on where they stand at the time they read the answers. Some will be helped, some will be offended, some will be confused, some might even feel hurt by our comments. I think we should all (myself included) be very aware that we are not just a few speaking with each other but many, many others are watching how we react to questions.

I think visitors see real life here. People come in with prejudices and baggage. Some people are sincere and some are hardcore. Some really want to help or be helped. Some people are nice some are not.
