Hi everybody. I am Ralph. I am a christian without a religion, which means that i attend no established religious organization. I am a father of six and a grandfather of seven. My oldest and youngest sons are active Mormons. I am not anti-Mormon, however, I do like the ethics of the religion it just has some doctrine that I cannot agree with.

I have been a Christian for nearly forty years now. Prior to that i was a very undesirable character who was converted by a spell in hospital as a result of my activities. I love my God and his son Jesus Christ with all my heart, mind and soul. I believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God. I believe that the holy Ghost has testified to my soul that God lives and that if i adhere to the teachings of the Gospel i can obtain exaltation.

i do not like confrontation, however, I stand by my beliefs regardless of consequences. Please feel free to critique my beliefs. It always strengthens by testimony of my God and enjoy being made to think.

i am not a scholar and my grammar can and does let me down at times. I have 3 'A' Levels, a HND in Building Services and a Honors Degree in Environmental Engineering. I finished the Degree in 1995 but have not really kept up with it.

i hope to have some interesting debates here

Kind Regards

Ralph

Welcome, Ralph!

It is interesting that you say this. This morning Dawkins has published a report from his Society for the Statement of the Bleedin Obvious (or whatever they're called), wherein at some expense his disciples have discovered that not all Christians go to church. Shock, horror, hold the front page, etc.

I think Dawkins is trying to pretend to believe that these people are therefore not really Christians.

Hi, Ralph.
Good to see you made it here. It's a bit quieter, but the debate is good, also.
Jim.

Wow. Hi Jim

Boy, isn't it good to see you here. I'm genuinely over the moon. I think I would have missed reading your post the most. I know I never answered many but that is because I recognized that your knowledge of the scriptures far exceeds mine so I read and learn from them.

Made My Day Jim

Thanks for the welcome. I think I might have known you from the R&E Forum, or some other past life.

I read an interesting article a couple of weeks ago that said that 80% of the British public believed in a God of some sort but that only a small percentage went to church. In the USA it is 95%. I think that when you take off agnostics and the "Don't Knows" atheism is still pretty much in the minority. But Dawkin's would be the last to mention that.

Kind Regards

Ralph

Can I just call you Wiggum Ralph?

Don't post much on the forums these days as my opinions are a bit too raw for most Christians...

But I do pop my head over the parapet every now and then, only to get a Cree throw shit at it, when I throw it back at him he runs home crying to his Granny and I get a holiday!!

Not read much of your stuff on the R&E forum, but what I read earlier is; it's not your public rantings that were the problem, but the abusive private PM's.

Way to make yourself popular Ralph!!

Enjoy your time here..  It's impossible to get banned here, so you can rant in public for all to see, instead of in private!!

Have Fun.......
