To everyone, I apologize for the mean things I said in some of the forums. I feel terrible for it. I was not acting much like a christian at all. I did not represent my church well or my God well. I do love God. I do have care for everyone here, no matter what church or belief you have. I do, believe it or not, have respect for your beliefs. I was showing my belief as if it was the only way. I actually didn't mean it to come across that way. I believe many will be saved, from many denominations, religions, and beliefs. It is up to God to judge. I believe baptism is important, but may or may not be necessary for salvation, but if we question it, we should just go through with it, rather than take that chance. If we love God, we will search for the anwsers to our questions. There are many churches with many beliefs. We must all refer to scripture for our final anwsers.

And most importantly, we must love one another and love God, and remember this when presenting our beliefs. That is something I momentarily forgot. And I apologize.

Very nice of you...you know, I think many would have just made up a new name and started over...but it's probably more proper to do it this way...
and more real.
Don't really even know what you said wrong...and i'm choosing to not look back at your previous posts to find out...as probably, I've even said something in the past that I now wish I had not...
What's the saying? people in glasses houses shouldn't cast stones?....or maybe it's nothing like that...lol...but I'm sure you get the meaning...
Congratulations on a very real thread...

Honestly I never felt offended. Many of my closest friends are SDA's. I ridicule them for the saturday sabbath and they tell me I'll be with Babylon, with the harlot of Rome

Then we often go grab lunch together or spend a whole weekend golfing. Neither side took the other seriously.

Personally I didn't expect your apology. No offence was taken at all.

Oh sheesh, not another apology. What are you trying to do...muscle in on my territory? I'M the only one that's supposed to issue apologies around here. Now look what I started.

*sigh*

Alright, come 'ere....tell me what you did wrong.

Mmhmmm....yeah, been there myself. What else?

Huh? You think that offended people?? Boy, I thought I was the one struggling with scrupulosity. Okay, it's all good. Is that all? No? Out with it.

Well heck, you had every right to respond like that. I would have slapped them too. Now, are you sure that's all you did?

Good. You're forgiven.

Now go outside and play until dinner's ready.
