Hello everyone! Just joined the site after trying out a few others. I found that some were either way too conservative (censorship galore!), way too liberal (are they even Christians?), or were not moderated at all and threads quickly spun out of control. I am hoping this site is better and more suiting to me.

I am a Christian and have been for over 25 years. I grew up as a Southern Baptist, but am now non-denominational. I am working toward a PhD in Theology/Divinity and a MA in Ancient History. I spend a large amount of time studying the Bible, researching the Classical Hebrew, the Koine Greek, and applying hermeneutics to verses. I compare historical accounts to biblical accounts. Most of my threads will probably be in apologetics/theology. If you read something that you don't agree with, please be civil and open minded about it. I will never, ever lead anyone away from God, but I do try and tackle the tough questions/subjects that tend to cast doubt, or don't make any sense. Feel free to ask me anything that you might be struggling with!

The most important thing about me is that I read and interpret the Bible in context...far too many don't. They cherry pick a verse, apply it to their topic and act as if that was the way it was meant to be read. There is a lot more going on in the Bible than what is on the surface. If I bring up a subject and you absolutely disagree with it, at least research the topic a little before making statements to the contrary. I will never intentionally insult someone, make a thread personal, or give misinformation. I am a truth seeker and a fact finder. I pray we can all learn something from each other and grow closer to God!

Welcome! Please read the TOS before you start posting, it saves you a lot of time understanding Worthy, and why it is so different from other sites like it.

Simple

The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself.
The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.
A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.
Proverbs 14:14-16

Truth

Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
John 14:5-7

No?

As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Colossians 2:6-9

Be Blessed Beloved Of The KING

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.


And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them. Numbers 6:24-27

Be Very Blessed

And shall say, Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumblingblock out of the way of my people.
For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
Isaiah 57:14-15

Love, Your Brother Joe

Glad you signed up, I hope you enjoy your membership.

What the difference between Koine Greek and regular Greek? You can't answer that in this forum (Worthy Welcome). :mgcheerful:
