Dear Neville, I've been putting into the trash what has been sent to me since I asked for my name to be removed from your mailing list, but on looking to see if your personal email was confirming my removal or not, noticed that you'd like me to reconsider. That is probably a wise thing to do - thank you for the suggestion, so please do keep me added until I've had an opportunity to reconsider properly. I'm going away (DV) for a few days, so will take copies of what has recently arrived and think and pray. However, generally-speaking I am doubtful, as I basically hold to the traditional evangelical views of hell, Catholicism, etc., and to the scripture "can two walk together except they be agreed?" (Amos 3:3) I believe scripture says 'No.' Like Philip, I have little time to joust with those who have no intention of yielding their will to God, and hence His Word (scripture). Through scripture I have encountered the reality of the Lord Jesus, got to know and trust Him, and for me, now, He is the ultimate reality from which everything else takes its meaning. Other brothers called to dialogue with those who have not yet bowed the knee to Him are welcome to engage in this interaction, and I praise God for them and bless them, but there are loads of resources, individuals, organisations and websites where this is already done adequately, and I don't want to be involved in one myself. I had hoped that in this list, some like-hearted/like-minded individuals would be searching their way forward to coming to a common mind about Creation Science and Geocentrism, and as it does not seem to be working out like that at present, I suspect I don't really want involvement in it. But this may change in the light of my reconsideration, I suppose. Drawing to a close, I've decided to accompany this with the email 'Tone and Accuracy', which I composed just before I resigned, and then decided against sending because as I was going to leave, it seemed unnecessary to start a conversation I was not going to be around to take farther forward. Now I am re-evaluating my decision, I should at least be around long enough to handle any comment on it, and hope it might still be of value to the forum anyway. We need a lot more grace to oil the relationships between us, and that can only possibly come from those who have themselves received it! Let me make this perfectly clear: I am not decrying you or others generally discussing belief to find truth - I did a great deal in my younger days - it is just not what I feel *I* should be involved in myself at present.
