 An observation

Before some of us got a little drunk the other night and trashed the place, I had really noticed in the midst of all the pushing and shoving to be the first to dance on the table that God is/was doing something on this forum.

I had noticed a definite shift in emphasis in the posts of the members, like yeh, we actually getting this thing, this is the gospel, this is how we live it. Its like we were seeing what God does in the human heart, this is the word that we put our faith, this the gospel of the kingdom.

With all the noise, I don't know if anyone else felt the same way? Maybe its just me, and living in this country of mine has taught me to look on the bright side of life.

Trying to keep the main thing, the main thing,

Maybe not the most tasteful analogy, I used to work in clubs, so that was in my mind when wrote that.

analogy- Similarity in some respects between things that are otherwise dissimilar.

Hope that helps. :-?

I agree there has been a shift in emphasis it needs to get back to:

[b]John 17:3 (NKJV)[/b] - "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent."

"It is Jesus Christ we must know better."
-Andrew Murray (Holiest of All)

"The main difficulty lay in the want of religious earnestness. Their case was vary much what has been the story of almost every Church, and what marks the state of the greater part of Christendom at the present day."
-Andrew Murray (Holiest of All)
