    Well... we see things differently I guess. I am an apostate, from an entirely different religion.

    So the question is, did I ever "belong" to that faith, did I ever really "believe" in that faith? Did I, in truth, ever bow the knee to Baal?

    I would answer no, even though I was a practitioner of that faith..

    I apply this thought process to anyone who would apostasize.

    Sorry for assuming you were calvinist, since this is a debate Calvinism thread. Of course it's possible you never believed, but only you can know that.

    I do believe in TULIP.. very much reformation in my theological beliefs. It actually makes perfect sense to me and the more I explore faith and learn what others base their beliefs on, it only serves to entrench me more in this theology.

    So no, you didn't make a mistake.

    And to add to that "yes" I'd like to say you don't have to be afraid of me... I'm fairly grounded in faith.. :)

    I'm not sure what that means, but ok? I've been a Christian for a whole lot of years, not much left to be afraid of.

    You just seemed to pause in discussing and I didn't want the discussion to end just because I have a different background...

    Okay so to make everyone comfortable I'll leave the thread.

    I simply thought to make a valid point, and I'm sorry that ruined the thread..

    God bless everyone and take good care.

    You didn't ruin it. It just kinda ran it's course, maybe? I can always find more faults with Calvinism if you wish. :)
