New in Michigan Hey folks, I happened upon this forum and thought I would peek around. I've been walking with the Lord since 1977 though I had consistent Bible training from childhood. I'm an electrical engineer in the automotive industry. I also pursue a videography business shooting training videos, special events such as weddings, and a few other specialties. There are probably forum rules on posting links but you can find our web site by searching for 'michigan videographer.' We usually come up on google's page one near the top. Probably my most interesting story involves my mother. After ten years of childless marriage the Lord told my mom at a New Year’s Eve service at church that she would have a child. She was so excited that she told people at the service and I imagine they thought she was nuts. She was presenting it as a done deal. Weeks later at a natal doctor visit she asked the doctor when the baby would be born if conceived January 1. The answer was October 1 which is my birthday. If anything distinguishes me as a Christian I would say it is my background involving the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society otherwise known as the Jehovah’s Witnesses. I have never had any affiliation with them but I have a whole side of the family that have been active members for years. A lot of them are dis-fellowshipped inactive Witnesses but some of them are dyed-in-the-wool. In my earlier years I went to a lot of trouble trying to show them how bad the Watchtower is. I found, though, that the Witnesses do not even have a clue about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and do not know how to respond when presented with the simple Gospel that Christ died for our sins and that he rose from the dead, the end (I Cor 15). I use a lot of their own lingo, though, in my approach which helps with the communication and I think that they are awe-struck that I speak respectfully to them. What probably frustrates me the most in life is the mindless liberalism that seems common. It has all the trappings of religion in that these people are committed to an organization or flawed belief system and what they see does not matter to them. When confronted with something that they cannot explain or don’t know about they denigrate the person asking the question. The Bible talks about these people saying that if you reprove a wise man he will be still wiser but if you reprove a fool you will only have to do it again and he will hate you. Professing themselves to be wise they became fools.
