Just another Day
Today I am writing to write. I don't have a particular subject.
I was thinking alot about something someone said to me on a forum on which I am a member. I find that you get false impressions of people. I have to keep that in mind about myself, also. A man, whom I thought was at least friendly to me, told me I should "see a shrink" because he thought I was being obsessive about another member. Actually I was being "obsessive" about the false things she was saying about what Baptists believe, believe it or not.
You see, I grew up in the Baptist faith, General Association of Regular Baptist Churches (GARBC) to be precise. I believe the GARBC, though quite small compared to, say, the Southern Baptist Convention or the Independent Baptist Churches, would be considered a "mainstream" Baptist faith. I grew up believing in the Trinity the exact same way it is taught in the (Catholic) Church. I grew up believing in the divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ in exactly the same way that the Church teaches it. I grew up loving and believing in the Holy Scriptures, the way the Church does.

God Bless you as Holy week and the Triduum approaches.
