Introduction

Hello All,
I have found it necessary to introduce myself to the honourable ladies and gents in this noble English forum as advised by a helpful fellow of the house. I joined the forum last month. I am from London, a British citizen . I am a Pastor and an IT infrastructure Project Manager / Engineer. I have been around for about 2 years. I like the forum and its members but I am yet to acclimatise myself with forum battering.

I will try my best to contribute wherever I can. I love praying, so if anyone needs prayer, feel to send a private message to me.

I look forward to receiving positive welcome and supports.
May the almighty God bless you all in Jesus name

Re: Introduction

Thanks for the introduction.

Forgive me for saying so, but playing less of a victim of this cruel world, and finding a way to be kind and caring in your posting strikes me as being more appropriate for a man of God, than the divisive way that you post. Why not contribute fully to the forum and show what a powerful example somebody who believes in Jesus can set in all topics and arenas, rather than these pious greetings and sign-offs which do nothing but alienate you and jar against the passive-aggressive tone of some of your posts

Re: Introduction

I also noticed a bit of sarcastic (nay cynical) tone for a supposed man of gawd. Maybe some praying is in order.

Unless, of course, he's really a Venezuelan racing driver.

Re: Introduction

I hope the good pastor hasn't lost his way, in the amazing way of Jesus.
Can he see the wood for the trees?

A grudging introduction, if I've ever seen one.

Welcome... I guess

The posting there was for clarification and it would not have been necessary if I had introduced myself earlier. Knowledge is an important thing everyone should have, according to the bible in Hosea 4v6 - My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. We can make this forum a better place if we can:
  • Love our neighbour as ourselves as in Mat 12v31. (The greatest Commandment)
  • Judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy, by being helpful. Proverb 31v9
  • Refrain from destroying our neighbour with our mouth. Proverb:11:9
Please permit my Gospel.
God bless you all in Jesus name.

Re: Introduction

No way to know if your true intention was to be taken seriously. But you're naive if it was - that post does nothing to achieve it. Alternatively, it's simply what it appears to be: pompous provocation. So my best option is to wish you the welcome and guidance from above that you truly deserve.

You've obviously not met a couple of my neighbours (literal, not metaphorical) - I've had to be very verbal in the past.

Judge not, lest ye shalt be judged.

Knowledge is power.

I was trying to hint to our friend Pastor that there are many sides to EF and members should try to contribute in different ways, not just bang on about the same subject or try to 'convert' the other members here to their beliefs and way of thinking (a certain chef comes to mind).
