Thanks T&TH I appreciate your vision. I am pleased too see several new topic boards up and believe it will spur growth for the forum. Growth comes as we step into new experiences. When I become comfortable with the status quo and do not seek out an area in my life, to stretch my mind and consciousness, I feel as though I'm in a vacuum, and there is no growth in a vacuum.
I applaud Jim for stating his opinion, and I emphatically endorse his right to state his opinion, although I don't agree with his opinion. If any one wants to quote versus from the Koran, Torah, Holy Bible, The Big Blue Book, or your favorite comic book please feel welcome to do so.
There is one thing I do disagree with.
Kawboy, while I appreciate your enthusiasm since joining us, such a short time ago, I think that it is you that may owe Jim an apology, especially as a Christain man. Jim owes no one an apology for stating his opinion, although I see he has done so, which he is to be commended for, although I didn't see the need.
The other day I read a post from a fella who said that everyone should proof read what they post, that was wise advice from yourself Kawboy, may be you should heed that advice.
I wonder how many times the Romans, Pharisees, Sadducees said to Jesus, The Disciples, and or the Apostles, " Shame on you for even thinking you would have ANY RIGHT to make such a statement ! " I'll bet he heard it more than once.
I'm sure that Jesus and his comrades showed as much grace to their nay sayers, as Jim did you, by affording the apology you demanded, even though it was uncalled for.
I welcome differing opinions than mine, because I know I have no mastery over Wisdom, and therefore I might just learn something. A great man once wrote, " But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure: then peace loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, IMPARTIAL, and sincere.
Any one have any guesses who that was ?
Dana, now you give everybody else a chance to answer first.
GOOD LUCK, GOD BLESS, AND STAY SAFE !
