You are right sometimes we ministers forget to teach the truth in love.

I for once like to apologize to anyone whom I may have offended in my zeal for the truth. My intention has never been to hurt anyone or offend anyone, my intention has been to teach the word of God.

I may get sometimes a little carried away, but it is because I care deeply for the truth, and in the heat of the discussion, I become a little too assertive in defending a biblical doctrine.

From now I will try to keep in mind, that I can have a biblical discussion without resorting to being agressive.

Re: question about other forums

Just went over this thread again. There are millions of "Apostolics" in the world and all we could name was AFF and the Good News Cafe? Surely there are other Forums.

Re: question about other forums

Re: question about other forums

I like to think of AFF as in the scripture that says "iron sharpeneth iron"

If you only associate with those whom you completely agree with, are you being sharpened? I have gone through growth with this forum, because if I post something, and someone disagrees with me, and proves it through scripture, then I can continue to learn and grow.

It is when you begin to think you have it all figured out, and no one can tell you any different that you really begin to die.

There is brotherly love and concern here in this forum, as well as lots of debate with iron sharpening iron... but in the end, I believe most are here because they sincerely love the Lord, want to be pleasing to Him, and are in effect trying to "work out their own salvation."

None of us has it ALL figured out, and the Word is alive, and living, and breathing, and there is fresh manna from it each time we pick it up.

The only thing I have seen about this forum that I dislike is the harsh words used against someone who expresses their opinion. There is really no need for that kind of thing. We can have discussions in brotherly love take place that are edifying, and life changing, without the need for childish name calling, bullying, and demeaning behavior.

That is the only thing I would change... not the discussion, not the debates but just that we all would respect each other's opinions, and refrain from childish behavior.

I agree. Wish that we could discuss/debate w/o ugly and hateful opinions.

Re: question about other forums

When I first came on Jim Yohes Forum which was forerunner to this one I was one of the very few that spoke out against the false beard teaching, tithing, honoring buildings as being the House of God and single Pastors ruling the Church. I was considered a Charismatic Liberal in those days.

Thads list counted me as Charismatic.

Now a few years later people here have changed so much that I am considered an old time Conservative even being called a Pharisee now and then. I have not changed my beliefs since then its the Forum members that have changed many new people and some who have backpedaled on theirs.

I must say that IN GENERAL this seems like a very liberal forum.
