Intro- Hello!
« on: August 06, 2018, 06:14:55 PM »
Glad to be here and looking forward to the fellowship. I'm a wife and mother and enjoy traveling with my husband for work. We have 1 son that graduated college and is going into the Navy, 1 in college and 1 senior in high school. We homeschooled all three.  I'm currently studying the book of Revelations! I'm also reading through my Bible on a 3 year plan trying to take it in slowly and meditate on each passage. Just a bit about my faith journey. I was born and raised in a Christian home where we faithfully attended church. Both my parents are with the Lord today and I praise God because they were wonderful loving people who would do anything they could to help others and they loved the Lord. They are missed so much by all our family. I was blessed in this. We were brought up in a good IFB church. I did have a few pastors growing up that preached opinions as Bible rather that just BIBLE! Mostly though, I did come up under wonderful pastors that were faithful to preach the Word and didn't adhere to the sweeping views of worshipping man more that God that has so heavily saturated our Baptist churches over the past several decades. I've sit back and watched this and yes.... I was just as enamored by certain great preachers as so many others were. I've slowly come to a real relationship with my Lord and Saviour. I've  had to rid myself of some of the legalistic thinking I once had and I approach the Bible now, looking for truth.... I'm desperately searching and studying my Bible and on the look out for the areas that I have been taught wrong. I want to knock down every false teaching or belief that is unbiblical. I want to know where my beliefs are right and where they are wrong. Truth is all that matters to me now. Unfortunately, I  just accepted everything as truth growing up that I heard from these  well known IFB preachers without studying the Bible myself to know if it was correct teaching (as I said it was just a few pastors and some that I listened to on tapes growing up but they greatly influenced my thinking and my set of beliefs.) I'm learning to read my Bible and let God teach me His Truths. I have a long way to go.  It's been a long time since I've been a part of a forum. Have a blessed day!

Welcome!

By the way, if you're studying it, please give it its proper name.  It's the book of Revelation, not Revelations.
