  1. hello

    Hi everyone just thought i would introduce myself been lurking for a wee while now.

    I have found this particular forum very helpful, atm im debating with myself which church to continue with as i had converted to roman catholic but a very delicate personal situation has forced me out the door.

    I consider myself born again and intend to visit various local churches over the coming weeks and also to educate myself on their own doctrine if thats the right word. Im also unsure of which bilble to continue with i had been reading both the jerusalem and niv, which altho catholic i had chosen when filled with the holy spirit. so decisions decisions lol.

    Anyway thats all for now like i said just a quick hello.

    To the forum, Staples! This is indeed, a fine place to be!
    As to bible versions, personally, I like the New King James. It doesnt have the 'thee's and 'thou's and 'shalt's, but it is faithful to the original translation. The NIV is good to understand, but it leaves out a few verses, and that bothers me.
    Good to have you here!
  10. thanks fluffy
    i will look in the book shop this week
