I have mixed feelings about this place but I hope to stick around and be of use to the Holy Spirit.
I'm overwhelmed by how many replies posts can get there's no way I could read them all or skip them to prevent myself from reiterating what others have already said. I think I could realistically read the first 10 replies to get a general take and then 'like' or 'agree' to those replies and only then add my own reply if I have something further to add.
There is a lot of ego about which I suppose is to be expected and long winded discussions over subjects that have no satisfactory answers because this current age isn't over with yet, what a waste of energy.
A lot of impatient and unkindly phrased dismissals from older male members too, and not just aimed at myself, they've probably just read to much and have high opinions of themselves. I'll try to take note of those to avoid them as much as possible. A few friendly people about but not made any friends yet.
I hope I can find some simple humble folk here and not just repellant intellectuals to have fellowship with.
I made a post called One Book of the Bible, One Month, A Spiritual Road trip with an Unbeliever. I'm interested in people's responses. John's gospel is common obviously and it makes me cringe every time and want to yell out NO! I think it's out of tradition it being the evangelists standard or maybe established believers pat on the back pride at giving such deep stuff to a seeker. I'd pick from the gospels aimed at unbelievers probably Mark or Ecclesiastes but I like Luke too, Matthew is for new converts so that would be a close second. Ecclesiastes is a good one for breaking down unbelievers pride.
We all need to come to the cross on our hands and knees utterly humiliated eyes downcast before Jesus. Not on our feet heads raised as if to inhale some supernatural genius but remain ourselves unchanged.
