You're welcome I didn't, but I shall on iPlayer. My dad was telling me about it (did I tell you he is a minister?)
Thanks for the friend request
Ah okay, thanks.
Yeah, I think so, I thought you knew
I just found a thread by you from 2011 asking about theology work experience - did you find any in the end?
No problem. I'm actually trying but every so often when I see a religious thread appear in the 'most popular/latest discussions' I'm always tempted to look, and I do so. Then I read comments and keep thinking about things, lol . I appreciate that Diety - I'll be sure to ask if there is anything confusing. What's your stance, btw?
I think it contradicted your beliefs, so you found it rude - a few people PM'med me to tell me how funny they found it and people commented on its truth in the thread.
The pos/neg thing from a Mod in their own section is plainly abusive as how can they objectively stand as an independent Mod whilst being busy putting people down for disagreeing with them?
You misread my piece. It was an assault on primitive beliefs about God, not about the individual, also I was being funny. Luckily quite a few people enjoyed it! And yes, I think Mods should not be posting rep in the threads they moderate, it should be a rule IMO.
Good question. I believe in God, although unfortunately the belief doesn't feel as 'secure' as I've gotten older; and looking at what the people in the Christian society say I don't really follow the religion in the same manner as they seem to do (or how a general Christian would). There are a few things that I've unfortunately not been totally convinced by, despite the numerous answers in the 'Ask about Christianity' thread and other related threads. So yeah, I have thought quite a lot and I'm not totally sure what stance I hold with regards to religion. At this point though I've tried to avoid overthinking situations, though.
Where I study
