      Half-right just isn't good enough when it comes to serious stuff.
      Yes I'm as sure as I think I am about those things.

      Hi Jerami.  I'm pretty sleepy, reason that may sound abrupt.  I'm just convinced totally.  I gave up being lukewarm a long time ago after I saw its consequences.

          Well, IF I know Jerami like I think I know him, he's talkin' about those deep subjects like Faith, religion, and other life-or-death issues.

          But then, I could be half-right about that......lol

              Here is something simple, if you believe, great. You don't have to bash it over anybodies head. If you don't believe, great. You don't have to bash it over anybodies head. Thats pretty simple, isn't it?

                Simple but rather selfish.
                Who, after finding the Truth, wants to keep it to themselves, sharing with nobody?

                  That isn't the problem, share implies its a wanted commodity. When its not wanted let it go.

      hello Jerami. you are half right. if you believe strongly enough that what you believe is the truth...then you should not have to argue about it...because arguing usually means you are defending...and where belief goes, if you feel defensive about it you must not believe completely that you are right.
      the half you are wrong about is like Brenda says...when something is as serious as the future of your soul...and obedience to GOD...half measures dont cut it.

      i dont like getting into arguments where my beliefs are concerned because i fully believe i am right and i also believe if someone wants to argue with me about it they have no desire to learn so continuing is pointless, though sometimes i am dragged into an argument and when i find myself thus i will quit, even if it makes me look like the loser. people will believe what they choose to...and people who have strong convictions, whether for GOD or against HIM...are rarely persuaded to change them. This is why no one can come to JESUS without GOD having called them. and still not all who are called accept.

    So if everywhere you post Brenda, I follow you quoting Matthew 7:3... am I doing God's work?  If so then:

    And why behold you the mote that is in your brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye?

    You know why we argue jerami? Because some people are arrogant enough to not be able to see past the nose on their faces. They think they know it all. They  think they have the truth, but you are right. No one knows everything.

      I personally believe that everyone is about 50% correct in their beliefs.

         I Believe much of what everyone on these forums are saying to be true.

         I guess this is true concerning religion as well.

        I don't know if all/any "Religion" is inspired by God or not.
      I am sure that mankind has been running the show for a long long time ;   (where religion is concerned)

      I think that we all know that we don't know it all, and we are looking for more ...   We do learn a lot from each other in situations where we discuss different beliefs whether e realize this or not.

         i think this is why some of us argue?
