Shalom Y'all

Shalom and Good Afternoon everyone...
I am a 27 year old Messianic Jew for Jesus from South Carolina who has always had a soft spot for the Baptists. The Baptist Church is one of the staples of Southern Life down here and I have always had respect for the Church as (in my opinion) no other Church is more active in the community within the realm of public service. Worldwide the Baptist Church is doing great things in the name of Yeshua and I especially, like the work that they do in Red China. Some years ago I went with a Baptist Church on a mission trip to flood ravaged Coastal North Carolina and I have never met so many great people in my life...
But I came across the forum a number of days ago and I figured I would join. I love debating religion & politics so, I figured I'd throw my 2 cents in here & there...

We are glad to have you aboard. Join in often, and you will discover some great people here, some of whom you will find in ready agreement and some who will argue with a signpost. (I'm sometimes one of those.) Be patient, for some of us have been going around on the same subjects for years, and it may take a few days to get the perspectives that lie behind the issues. Welcome!

It is great to have one here with a Jewish perspective!

Perhaps you could give us some updates on the movement these days. I have been here abou 2 years and can't remember such a discussion in my time around.

These are great minds and we try to use good common sense and sharp logic. Already, I see your gifts in that area.

Welcome to the party, David! I hope you enjoy the give and take that goes on here, though some of it gets rather sharp at times.
I think you'll also find there's a caring community here when needs arise among our members. We disagree, but we still love each other... most of us... most of the time. :)
