thats pretty interesting, i wouldnt have guessed from the amount of people in the shooting off forum that numbers were sneaking up on 150. How goes the discussion in those parts?
Pretty interesting, I just answered a post about sacraments and how different churches think differently about them. It's one of thsose things we agree on more often than not, but its interesting to hear Catholics, Presbyterians, Lutherans, and Baptists discuss the familiar topics with differing viewpoints.
As far as the number of people, I was surprised as well. There are some very vocal people who speak out against religion and Christianity in general, but every "What religion are you" poll, that I've seen, shows that at least half of the respondents are Christian. We're really not as vocal as one might believe. I try to limit my posts to just defending my beliefs without attacking anyone else.
That's one thing I've liked to see in the Jesus Freaks Forum, You might think that with a closed user group people would be nasty about non-Christians. It's actually quite the opposite we have a running "Who's your favoite non-Christian CC member" thread where we speak up and point out the people that we disagree with but respect and like.
Being a Christian is a prerequisite for our clan, but if you would like to see a sample of the type of things we talk about there's an old thread "The Fish Club" that I started early this year. It's pretty similar, but got hijacked a bit.
