Just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself.  I am about 40 years old and have been studying the bible for about 15 years.  I love talking about the bible and debating points.  I firmly believe that iron sharpens iron, but to do so,while it is necessary to be pointed in the same 'general' direction, most times clashes and a little bit of friction is necessary.  If everyone believed exactly the same way you do, then no one would learn anything.  

 

I believe that for the Holy Spirit to teaches us something, we have to remain teachable.  To be teachable,  we must admit that we don't know everything. To admit that we don't know everything is to admit that our understanding is limited (at least on this side of Heaven).  And to admit that our understanding is limited means that we all should consider that it is at least possible that we might be wrong on debatable points of doctrine.  I am not talking about major doctrinal points, ie... Jesus is the only way to God, Jesus died on the cross for our sins, His blood paid the penalty for our sins.  But on the smaller doctinal points that are usually debated on this board on those like it all over the world...for example the timing of the rapture, law vs grace, works vs faith, ect.

 

I look forward to exploring God's word with all of you.  So come let us reason together..... and both come away sharper for it.

Welcome Joshua i don't get involved in doctrinal divisions myself but some here do and i'm sure you will fit right in. as long as people listen to the Spirit of God and Give Him the Glory (all too often people get so puffed up in pride they worship Self which is a false god)   there should be no confusion!

Glory to God
