You say, don't  try to straighten out this Grace-Centered Christian Forums place >

not long ago, it came to me that I can not straighten out anyone as well as God can; so, instead of how I have been so busy with  criticizing people and rehearsing  how I would straighten them out . . . I can so rest in this, and trust each person to God for how God is able to straighten out any person, at all. Have this hope for anyone > love "hopes all things," we have in 1 Corinthians 13:7. Then my pastor preached how we can't fix anyone like the Holy Spirit can fix a person.

So . . . amen  ::smile::

Thanks for the advice. We as believers tend to forget that it's not all Angels singing and warm fuzzies all the time. There is going to be opposition and Satan will try to mess with us.

My story, my introductory statement to those of Grace-Centered forums:
 I’m an educated old man, born of a large Morman family. Fifteen or so years ago a godly friend gave me Barnhouse’s 3 volume set of “Romans.

Hello Everyone,

I found this forum doing an internet search of popular Christian forums. I love to interact and learned from others. I believe everyone should be life long learners. Knowledge plus application is the key to living the zoe life that we where all called to live. I look forward to talking with as many people as I can.

I totally agree, well said.

We all have different opinions and thinking you can change everyones to match yours is just not gonna happen.

That was a really, good read.  I had to laugh because I was one to go onto the next sentence where it said "if you didn't click and read, do it now"  ::giggle::  Like I said, it was a good read and will get me off on the right foot;)

Hello brethren,

I just joined this forum, not up to 10 minutes now, and I am sure it's going to be a wonderful experience with the people of God here. I am from Nigerian but presently doing my postgraduate study outside of Nigeria right now, a Christian and a member of a pentecostal denomination in Nigeria but where I am right now, I belong to the Baptist Church (I am non-denominational though).
I trust God to use this forum to bless me and also make me a blessing to members of the forum too (AMen).

Peace and Joy!!!

I'm new here; I am a recently converted to Catholic from Protestant Christian. I have wondered away from Christ and into sin to my folly.

Please pray for me in my struggles with sin and the desires of the flesh.

I like the rules here and am happy to see a forum for Christians that unbelievers cannot come onto and trash the site. Thank you for that.
