Introduction ... Greetings in Jesus Name! I am just another brother in Christ who is seeking to discuss scripture with other believers, to encourage and be encouraged; to help and be helped; as iron sharpens iron. I have known the Lord since 1972, but have not always followed His lead. It was not until a few years back that I finally gave up the world and decided to become a disciple of Christ, knowing all to well that through following Him, the Holy Spirit would change me in His time. I realized that when I only give Him, let say, 50%, then that is all He has to work with, so I continuously try to hear His direction so I can lay down more of my life to Him. Even though I understand why there are denominations, I do not like the division of His Body. I attend church from Pentecostals to Baptists to Nondenominational, taking what has been said home and searching scripture to see if it is true or not. One of my ministries is being a chat administrator of another Christian web site. Another is being part of a homeless outreach. I also use the physical gifts He has bestowed on me to help others who can not afford to pay for a professional to do the work that needs to be done, which is basic carpentry, sheet rocking and painting. I am a father of 5 children, ranging from 37 years old to 29 years old. I am also a grandfather of 4, three already born and another on the way, to arrive soon! Their ages are 8, 7, 3, and 6 months. For outside fun, I climb cliffs, both sport and traditional, ride the trails on my mtn. bike and hike. For inside fun I do puzzles, enjoy movies and chatting on the computer. Because I spend a lot of time in chat, I may not join the chat here, but spend time in the forums. Every now and then, I pick up my guitar and pluck a couple of songs, but not as much as I use to. If there is anything else you would like to know about me, feel free to ask ... I have nothing to hide.
