Thank you for your comments and your efforts to help me see the error of my ways. You are decent people who try to share what you believe with each other and been kind enough to share it with me. To me truth is not negotiable; it has to be consistent.
It makes no real difference to me what you believe, or what you base it on. If it helps you enjoy your lives I wish you well. I think it best that I leave you debate amongst yourselves for a while and come to the conclusions that you want to. I would not want to be the cause of you losing something that you value.
I am making the same journey through life as you are but am walking a different path
Very well said Gladiator. I also want to thank tec, PSacramento, and not a captive for the reasonable debate. Proof that a respectful debate is possible and that we can all regard one another with respect, while at the same time disagreeing. I will never understand the whole grace thing, but I am glad that all 3 of you are there for each other. It's what it is all about. Peace my friends!
