Hello and greetings to all. I introduce myself to all. I am a male, 53 years old. U.S. resident alien; but not "American"....(whatever that changing, debatable, subjective term means). I currently live in Southern Oregon. I enjoy traveling to meet different people. I embrace certain aspects of foreign cultures that are more compatible with my values. I highly recommend a visit to Israel. I am single and have never been married. I have no children.
I believe that I have been saved by Jesus Christ, by the grace of God through faith in His name. I have been born again by the same Grace.
I am here to discuss certain issues that I am passionate about. I would also like to offer my insight and to be helpful. I rejoice in my freedom in
Christ, yet I would not let my freedom make a brother or sister stumble. Love is much more noble and helpful than "being right".
I really enjoy debates that are civil. I would like to have a "Debate TV" channel to watch as an alternative to athletic sporting events.
I think it's sad that our U.S. profit-driven media only gives a few hours of debate for really important discussions that I think are vital to
having a highly informed electorate. There are some U.S. cultural and societal norms that I think have been destructive to: the health of our families, our overall unity and stability, our security, and our modesty.
I have thought about how I would solve some of our U.S. urban, economic and governmental problems. My conclusions are that we all need to pray
for our government. The only solutions that I can offer....this country is not ready to hear yet.
I hope that I can make some friends here.
