Am I being asked to leave?

I post this on is AFF an Apostolic thread. It seems somewould like for me to go.If the adms desires that I will leave. JY asked me to join FCF about 6 years ago I have enjoyed discussing Bible topics with y'all and have been posting with many until it seems I know you. My manner of posting has been pointed from the beginning if anything I may be milder than the beginning. There has been this change on this forum that at times it has seemed a 'ex or anti' site from SOME. I will do what I am asked to do? I decided to make this thread in case my post wasn't seen on the other thread.

Re: Am I being asked to leave?

This is what I posted on the other thread where you
asked this


That's a Question that only Mike, Renda and the other
Owners and Admin. can decide. Most of them are Xpentecostal,
charismatic or very liberal so I'm not sure where you will come
down on this Bro Epley.

FCF was certainly a miracle or sorts. I use to think that only the
conservatives like CAF only wanted like minded people on their
forum but perhaps the same can be true for an Xpentecostal
site???

"Am I being asked to leave?"

Bro Steve

I have not always agreed with you and I have not always disagreed with you but I would like to comment on this type of thread. You have the right to believe things as you see them. You have the right to say things you feel. The rest of us do that so why not you? This type of thread though should be beneath you. This comes across as childish and immature and you Sir do not seem to be either. A bit set in your ways and hard headed but not childish and immature. So why would you revert to this type of posting?

No offense is meant by this I am just surprised at it from you of all people.

Elder Epley,
Please don't leave!!!!
You know what a liberal I am.
You've read (and often disagreed with) my posts on several forums.
I respect you as a man of God, a person who sincerely loves the Lord.
I don't always agree with some of the things you say or even the way you say them, but I consider you a valued contributor to this forum. In my (liberal or maybe ultra-liberal to many) opinion, we all are brothers and sisters on this forum and, as siblings, some times we squabble, get our feelings hurt, get mad, and pout but we're all here together and down inside do love one another. We are each unique and different from one another but we have a common Lord and a common new birth experience. We represent the diversity in the body of Christ.

Bro. Epley, You are wanted and needed at AFF! Don't pay attention to the jerks! You have just as much of a right to express your opinion as anyone on here!

It doesn't matter what some would think. If you enjoy it here, stay.

I have learned from you and am learning from you. It is people like you that makes discussion boards worth having. If everyone agreed on every thing every day, then there wouldn't be much discussion.

There is a lot that we seem to not agree on, but we have more in common than we have different because we both love Jesus Christ.

Don't change who you are unless you see the need to. Don't go away unless you want to. Stay because you want to.

I think you realize that you are wanted.

Re: Am I being asked to leave?

Bro. Epley - please don't leave. You are a balancing voice on this forum and we need you. Although we disagree on lots of things, I respect you for your consistency and convictions.

If you leave, who will keep us from going off the deep end?

Don't listen to the idiots Brother Epley. They're just revelling in their sin.

Rico suggested we leave and suggested other forums. I just wanted to know if the adms feels this way this is NOT a pity thread but an honest question?
I have enjoyed and endured discussions since FCF I have met some nice folks from here I would never agree with we have met and lunched. Adino who is 180 degrees from me doctrinally came to hear me. But I am wondering if he is not just saying the heart of the others that is the reason for this post. No other. I count Rico a friend so I am not attacking him we have fussed for years.

I wish you would NOT leave. I already miss most of the conservative posters who used to post here, and we don't need to lose anymore. As it is, the forum is imbalanced, IMO.
