I love the content of your posting, just don't know where this fits in with TF related issues.

First of all, thanks Evanman... 'tis however TF related... as I was once a member and it was my 'undying' faith in Jesus that brought me out... by the 'hand of God'... and... is not just 'spam'... s'pose is in the eye of the beholder... Any way, thought I'd 'contribute' as I have been reading this site for about a month...and with the present time we live in... we all need a reminder to remember what it is we are really here for.

Speak for yourself. I am most certainly NOT here for your god.

PS: It stills fits my definition of spam (i.e. "witnessing" = spam in my book)

Hi Mile,

Not knowing your background Iwasn't sure.

This forum is not meant to be religious/christian/spiritual. You will find people that agree with you, and those that don't.

It is worth remembering that not evryone that leaves a cult (whether TF/CoG, Moonies, Divine Light, Krishna Con., etc) will leave having Christian beliefs. I remember attending a meeting years ago by a group that thought that as they'd read a book that meant they were eqipped to help ex-cult members. What really got me amused was when the nun (catholic sister actually) piped up, "We will, of course, be starting each meeting with prayers?"

I appreciate where you're coming from.

Take care.

There are those, like myself, who consider themselves Christian, and who also firmly believe in the separation of Church and State, and do not consider the doctrine of the union of the two to be inherently "Christian".
