    While I've been away from this board for a while, I've been able to examine things more objectively. I have concluded that the issues I have with many things are a lot bigger than just this board and the people on it.

    It is the equivalent of concentrating on a tree when there is a forest there.

    I have also often failed to look at a bigger picture with the overall condition of the world.

  5. The Importance of Proper Translation

    Our Bibles are translations, not inspired Scriptures. No matter how valuable they are for us who don't read the original languages (Chaldee, Hebrew and Greek) and no matter how well the translaters meant, important truths have been lost while translating.
