An Interesting Read
There is a thread on the site where I blog that may be an interesting read for some of you, especially those of the Christian faith. I've posted a few comments of my own there, which is neither here nor there, but it's interesting reading the various people's replies coming from their own beliefs.

For anyone who reads it, I should provide some background info relating to my own comments so as to avoid any misunderstandings.

Firstly, the original poster of the article is someone I respect and like, but I often post things that are challenging or even tongue-in-cheek. Don't mistake some of my comments for antagonism or dislike. We have a fairly long history and she understands what I am doing (stirring the pot). I respect all people's beliefs even if I don't agree with them.

Secondly, while she, another poster, and I share a common basic belief in God and Jesus, we come from different viewpoints on those beliefs, She is a Protestant, the other poster is Catholic, and I am a non-denominational Christian who happens to disagree with almost all denominational dogma.

Ok, that said, here's the thread in question:

If nothing else it may provide a few minutes of diversion or amusement for some.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

thanks, I'll take a look at it (once it loads...it's taking quite a while...)
I too blog, almost exclusively on the topic of my Christian faith. If you'd like to take a look, my blog is www.youareprecisely.blogspot.com.
Although, I will add, I HATE arguing, and will refuse to entertain it on MY blog...save that for those who enjoy fruitless debate. NOT FOR ME!

debate is so much fun though! Sometimes I'll take an opposite view just so I can challenge someone. Doesn't mean I believe that way I just enjoy the word play.

I was on a debate team in high school and college and I often had to debate a position I didn't personally agree with. It's all in good fun.
