I have come to this site because the one I was at has discontinued and the one that they refered posters to was difficult for me to navigate. As the title to this post states, my primary concerns in posting are rational and biblical. Though I do not disparage those who have received personal revelation, I am not much of a mystic myself. I test all things by the Scriptures and the reason Adonai has given me. I have never recognized the authority of the roman catholic church, so I do not consider myself a protestant, having had no need to protest their views. I look forward to discussing what the Scriptures actually say and comparing it to the various doctrines that are proposed by the posters on this sight. May we all come to a greater understanding of who Adonai is and what He requires of us as we examine the Scriptures and our various views of them.
