Ahahahahahahaha!!!! Rotfl June!!! Sorry, I'm probably the only one who caught this but it cracked me up. I read your whole post and I would also like to know what it is about UR that doesn't make sense to you but I had to point out this probably "unintentional" switching of letters.

Just an off-topic observation: if one wants to evaluate the merits of a belief system by the "fruits" of the believers which adhere to said system, yours isn't looking too credible. Does anyone else detect a pattern here?

Actually you have shown that you are the one wasting your own time, I can post whatever I like within forum rules in whatever manner I like and I really do not care what you think about them.

You make assumptions that are in your head and certainly nothing that I need to be concerned with.

I am one that when I was young, without any religious influence towards UR, no internet and raised in hellfire church, rejected the idea of damnation and believed that the being that made it's presence known to me would not do such a thing.


I have never believed eternal damnation was real, I have played along during times of my life because of being afraid of my mother and fathers rejection.

This is based on how I was treated when I would express a disbelief in something a teacher or a pastor at church would say. So I was conditioned to play along rather than being conditioned to seek truth.

Fortunatly I retained what I knew about God and when I no longer was in emotional bondage to people in my life I emerged standing my ground for what I was blessed with when I was young.


Now, I do not know what you think the idea that someone "never" went from an unbeliever to a practicing UR proves, but you are in a position to see your ignorance and now that you have heard of one who has, what does that prove?

My ignorance? Sorry, but did not claim it never happened, I said I never HEARD of anyone like that, so your rude attack is unnecessary. All the other URs have said they were born again believers before converting to UR. Did you accept Christ as you personal saviour after becoming UR, or are relying on being 'born again' after your death?

Being ignorant is just lacking information and I provided you with some.

Now that you have heard of someone, what does it prove either way?


I accepted the love of a being that made it's presence known to me before I could put things into words, or really knew the "religious" terms and phrases that I later would be required to chant.


This being I come to understand in english words as God and Christ and know that it is to the best of my perceptions "LOVE". From my life and experience I have come to love that I find a message from this being relating to me through the bible.

I am not relying on anything other than knowing that God will direct my feet where I need to go. Proverbs 16:9

To the best of June's knowledge, she is not, nor has she ever been dyslexic, but she sure goofed in her typing last night!

Sorry Finn! Please forgive the mistake...

The valid answers are:

1. Yes, I have accepted Christ as my personal saviour and I place my faith in Him.

2. God is love and He will save everyone, and I am saved through Him. There is nothing I need to accept.

Is it '1' or '2'.

No need to apologize for honest mistakes. I didn't even see it until Ilene pointed it out.

No finn, you do not decide what any answer for me is valid, that is a fact.

You are the one who brought up that you never heard of anyone going from an unbeliever to UR. I suppose that it doesn't mean anything.
