That is probably the only reason I even joined this board. It was to find other Christians like me and fellowship with them.

 

I was looking for a place where I new I would belong and fit right in and this was it.

 

I am serious, you know. Some trolls get online and treat everything like it is a joke and I want to slap these people but I don't.

 

My little sister is an independent web developer and she totally hates trolls. I don't blame her. I get online to actually have meaningful conversations with people, and trolls just get in the way of that.

 

They are rightfully banned.

Ok, look, you guys don't need to be afraid to post and engage in the conversation: There are too many floaters and guests and not even enough users. I don't hide and float in the background because I'm not afraid of what other people think and say about me. I am actually petty courageous and will defend myself if physically attacked. I'm not even afraid of the moderators.

There have always been guests and anonymous readers that come here.  Some are not believers and are just curious, and others aren't sure they want to join.  Some might even be people that were banned, but are still interested in what is being said.  I wouldn't worry about them. 

 

BTW, I noticed you joined WB back in 2011.  What made you suddenly decide to become such an active participant?  I mean, why now?  Don't take me wrong.  I am glad you decided to join in.  I am just curious.

Yes, God led me to repentance when I was in the 8th grade. Now that we are 70ish our health is not as good and we can't be relied on to participate as regularly to serve as sunday school teachers or sit on boards.. But we still try to attend 2 services a week. We probably rely more heavily on the Lord now than ever before. Life wouldn't be worth living without Him. I miss the fellowship in the womans' groups now, which is why I have turned to the net, and I miss being able to contribute my time and gifts. There is nothing more exciting than knowing that God is using us and giving us gifts of wisdom in decision making or even witnessing. There are times that I look back and think did I say that? I need to listen to that!

:hmmm:

 

what response would you suppose one might reply with when reading the above?  I'm pretty sure no one is going to attack you physically and the mods deserve respect.

Yes I am a born again Christian.  I asked Jesus into my heart when I was 15.  I attend a church called Joshua Springs Calvary Chapel in Yucca Valley California.  I love it.  I love the praise and worship, the preaching and teaching.  I'm not sure why you would think anyone would attack you physically either since most of us are miles  apart.  You seem to be testing us.  I can assure you the mods (and  by the way I'm a mod in the chat room )are only here to help and keep our chatters safe.  I may be wrong but I hope you don't believe that going to a Baptist church is what saves you or if you think other churches  are wrong.  My rule of thumb when it comes to a church is... if what they are teaching or preaching cannot be backed up with the word of God then it is not a church I would go to.

 

We don't hate trolls.  We  try and share Jesus with them.  Of course a lot of them come in just to cause problems but we always first and foremost try and share the gospel with them.  As Christians we are supposed to do that.  If they do not respond and continue to cause  trouble  we ban them.  Sometimes you just have to.

 

Welcome to Worthy.  I would invite you to  maybe visit our  chat room where   I believe you will find wonderful fellowship there as you do on the boards.  We look forward to seeing more of you.

Why the attitude? Mind me asking if you are male or female. (Curious about the defend if attacked comment.)

I have to answer honestly and say no.  For me to be a Christian I would have to be Christ like in every way.  I would have to have all three of the following qualities. I would have to have Christ’s love within me; I would have to be humble & truthful.  I would have to have them all of the time every time.  I would not insult Jesus by claiming to be like him.  My Christian hero in my lifetime was Mother Theresa.  She gave her whole life to Jesus and my one regret in life is not meeting her.  The closest I came to that was seeing her on live TV and even through the TV I could feel and sense her serenity, and love.  I will keep on trying to be Christian but for now I am not.
