To me God is real. I do believe that my sins were paid for when Christ was Crucified. I do believe in life after death.

I also know my job is to be a better witness for Him. I have failed at that as my actions and my words don't always profess my love to Him and or my love for you as my brothers and sisters. I hope that sometime in your life you will come to know Him as I have and experience the peace about what happens after this life is over and be my brothers and sisters in Christ.

It isn't my place to sit and banter with you on your beliefs vs. mine.
I understand where you are and hopefully you understand where I am.

Thanks for reading.

Well, speaking only for myself, the humor was not meant to offend and I do offer an apology if mine did. I have attempted to keep my comments and whatnot focused on creationism versus evolution but this conversation has gone on for quite some time. There are the occasional potshots made by both "sides." I do think that a person can believe in Christ and the existence of a Christian God (or any "god" for that matter) and still observe the effects of evolution, and that this belief and observation are not mutually exclusive. What is offensive to me is the blind faith I have seen in regards to the infallibility of the Bible (and other sacred texts) as the literal word of God, the refusal of some to apply rational/critical thinking skills to spiritual issues and the rejection of accomplishments made (or knowledge gleaned) by man as inferior to religious beliefs. Still, it's all good. We don't have a right not to be offended.
