Hey Everyone! I'm New (:

Postby amessenger4god on Sun Sep 06, 2009 4:44 pm

Hello everybody,

I've been following the forums for a month or so. I guess it was about mid-summer that I really started having this gut feeling... well you know. :grin: And so I've been spending a lot of time catching up on my eschatology.

Everyone here seems to be really considerate, temperate and caring. I hope I can become part of the community! I sure could use a lot of prayer right now in my life!

Anyway, here I am:

21

Non-denominational (I attend a Christian church, church of Christ, Community church, and a Catholic church near my house from time to time)

I believe the argument between works vs faith can be settled with one word: GRACE. Faith and works come from ourselves, but grace comes from God in baptism when we are crucified and raised with Christ.

I have several brothers, some on the right track, some... not so much :(

My life and my family are officially dysfunctional... but I've grown, at least I think I've grown, so much in Christ because of it, and am happy that Jesus would deem me worthy to suffer for Him! :blessyou:


I'm in my last year of college and hopefully, I'll soon be graduating, if I can survive one more year with three particularly worldly roommates.

...And last, but not least: I'm both pre-trib and pre-wrath, they both make sense to me and I've heard good arguments on both sides. Time will tell. Preterism and post-trib make no sense in my view (but that's just me).

I also have a youtube channel with some videos. Maybe you all might enjoy them. Check out my new ones, which were done with a Star Wars theme: http://www.youtube.com/amessenger4god



Thank you everyone and I'm REALLY looking forward to getting in on the discussions!
David

Welcome, AM4G!

My life and my family are officially dysfunctional...


Back in the 80's (when the word 'dysfunctional' became established)I would visit a Messianic congregation occasionally and the minister pointed out during a talk that according to the current statistics, 95% of families were considered dysfunctional. Sooooooo, he said, that makes dysfunctional families the norm. :grin: Good point.

Grace is a beautiful thing! If you get the chance, Randy Alcorn's book "The Grace and Truth Paradox" is excellent, building on the Bible's statement that Jesus came full of grace and truth - both, equally. He discusses how churches (and believers) get off track when they lean to one or the other side too much - "truth" churches are legalistic, "grace" churches way too liberal. It's an interesting read.

Glad you joined!
