I’m going through my posts and I have to admit that I’ve said things without taking into account how they would land here for Christians. So I want to apologize to anyone I’ve offended or angered. Sometimes it is difficult convey in a forum post the spirit behind the words. Like email, a lot can get lost in transmission.
So let me just lay out some basic beliefs of mine that underlie all my posts.
I absolutely believe that any christian can pursue a relationship with God through their faith.
That while Judaism is the true religion for me, I believe that Christianity is the true religion for others. Both religions offer a structure for one to bring the sacred into their lives.
While aggressiveness in a religious debate on a forum is inevitable to some degree, a lot of that aggressiveness, for me, is limited to these types of exchanges, and not something that carries over into normal day to day conversations with me.
Anyway, I’ll make an effort to be more mindful of my words in the future.
