As usual, thank you Egg! I agree, people too often do not practice what they preach. I rarely quote scripture, rather I preffer to use my own life as an example to promote God. In my opinion you (as usual) summed up what we were trying to say quite nicely. Man, you're incredible at this. Very Happy

Thanks. I've seen this same subject pop up everywhere, so I thought I would throw in my opinion.

Jordan I like that verse. It makes me remember when David L. did the sermon about that.

Yes it was a fantastic verse, but I think you miss Eggs point. It's not the verse thats important, it's the point that it makes, and that we listen to it. You can be totally knowledgable about the Bible, verses, etc... And still not be that great of a Christian, because you miss the point of it all. That was also a sermon if you recall. Wink

Yeah, Christianity isn't about knowing the Bible backward and forward, quoting scripture, and perfect church attendance. It's about a personel relationship with God and following him. The other stuff just helps. Wink

Well God's gift to us also matters. The gift of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit matter.

That is true, but one of the BEST POINTS to date, and you delete it. Why were you trying to edit it anyways?

Besides, once you push delete, you also have to push yes, which means you fail double.

Nononono, what I did was push edit, (thinking it was quote). But I only wanted to quote a small PART of that very large post, so I deleted most of it. Then I realized I had in fact edited your post, rather then quoting it. And since I could not remember all that I had deleted, and the post made no sense without it, I had to delete it. Wink
