Well, not really "just being nice" - I just like people in general and enjoy getting to know them!!  But I'll leave you alone for now, and you can bet that there will be other nice people to talk to as well!

i am so very happy to respond to your post and be halfway to my goal.

i am happy to say i leaning to the truth and where my savior leads me.  i like to see both sides as i have had before, and as you too give to decide. That is a good thing.

thank you so much.

i know you are just being nice. thank you so much, but you do not have to keep talking to me. Maybe other nice people will too.

Hi everyone,

i have kids and am a grandmother.

i  registered here as serendipity. That means "The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident." because i live not too far from 3ABN, and have met many of the people there, as well as being included in private e-mails by members here. This was becase i was included in email discussions, and others because they were forwarded by friends, and i was just an inocent observer.  This means i am aquainted with the people on both sides of these things. That makes me afraid of saying who i am, really. i hope that is ok here. It is very confusing.

i was registered at BSDA before. i have also been reading posts here too, but, so many are being moved to the hidden forums which friends and members know and said. This makes it is so hard to keep up with all, so i have now registered in order to read all. many others probably did this too!  i understand the forum wants members and that i understand, but other people like me need to know what is going on. This is my first post to count towards those which will lead me to read the hidden and private posts.

Can someone tell me how many more posts i need?

It is good to see and read all, but i do not think i will post more than i have to here. i hope that is ok to do. i don't want to say too much because people can attack me, and id on't want that.

i love the people and am a second generation Seventh-Day Adventist, but so much is very confusing and somuch is not understood. 
Maybe i am not alone. Others feel like this?

 i hope to share the love of Jesus and see that here, and share it  as other's do when i can.

Welcome Serendipity.  I had to smile at the thought of you being disappointed with what you will find behind the curtain when you get your magical six posts.   ;)

I think you will find that most are careful to post their most exciting stuff in the public section.  I presume that is because they want the whole world to have access. 

Enjoy your stay.

:welcome: Serendipity to Advent Talk. :)

Thank you for your kindness.

 i think i have reached my goalpost and can see and read and try to understand all, if added with what i also know and see and hear away from here and from friends. All will help.

i will wait and only speak if i see i have to from now on. i still don't want to be attacked as others are here. People can be very mean.

Thank you to all.

Hey all.  I found this site based on a discussion from another board, so I came over to check out what's going on here and what is being taught.  It is my prayer that all people would find their identity in Jesus Christ, the full-revelation of the Father and that they would know that their salvation is secure because of what Jesus has done for them.  God bless you all in your journey.  I look forward to viewing your posts concerning Scripture on this site.

 :welcome: to AT Freeindeed.

I'm not sure that your perception is correct in saying that you are here to "check on what's going on and what's being taught". It's not a matter of what is being taught. This is a discussion group; not a doctrinal determinant.

You will find doctrinal topics down further in that particular section. We do have friends who are not SDA as members here.

Thank you for the welcome, Chrissie.

Not sure I understand what you mean.  I've been perusing the doctrinal topics and am finding that much of the 'discussion' is teaching.  That is what I came to 'check on'.  For me and many others it is completely a matter of what is being taught.  Before I would recommend someone to a site I want to know what is being taught and who is doing the teaching?  What is the gist of discussion/teaching from those who control the site?

I do know of a couple of sites that discuss SDA beliefs and some of the difficulties/problems that allow for complete open discussion on those topics.  Does this site encourage open discussions, regardless of who is teaching or of the outcome (using Scripture - of course) or is only one side of the discussion allowed while the other is banned or strongly encouraged to leave by those who are allowed to discuss/teach?

I ask only because I've been a part of many (many!) discussion boards and this one is a new one to me.  So based on the nuances of this post, would I be welcome here or run off, even though I would be only about discussing beliefs based on Scripture, not about the individuals who may or may not hold those beliefs?

Again, thanks for the welcome...but am I really welcome?

In CHRIST alone...
