    BOTHER! Tried to edit a spelling mistake & ended up making more mess :0(

    In answer to your question Karibou…………………An opportunity for like minded people to make contact with one another – Why not?

    Azukim,
    I’m not sure if this site is the right fit for you. Perhaps you could try Googling “Christian blogs” for example.
    The whole point about Grownups is that we are NOT all the same. That’s why we enjoy our discussions so much — it’s fun and stimulating to swap different opinions and viewpoints.
    If you are interested in making contact with not-so-like-minded people, and listening to what they say, you’re quite welcome to join in.

    Hi Azukim,welcome to our Forum.This is one forum that people speak openly.And it may not be to your liking.As for the Chat room,that will be used by those who enjoy it.Not everyone is of that ilk.Like not everyone on here is Religious.

    Not everyone likes gardening either Mona – those folk probably don’t bother with the gardening section.
    As for ‘us sinners’ gee-bee – I’ve never noticed Jesus making a distinction between sin in thought or sin in action. It would be dangerous for me to think I’m not a sinner. I’m simply one who is saved by grace – God’s grace and I’m no better than anybody else.

    gee-bee, you said no religion or politics. There is a fair proportion about politicians and politics on other threads.

    I didn’t say it wasn’t talked about OKK.I just was been my old stirring self.Azukim is obviously enjoying Grownups and that’s the main thing.I like many on this site don’t enjoy chat rooms.I simply don’t have that much to say.I prefer writing.By the way Azukim God and Jesus dwell in my life to.But I prefer to think of myself as a free-thinking adult not harnessed by the shackles of religion.I need God,but I don’t need religion.

    Christianity is about a relationship with God through Jesus who is The Way The Truth and The Life (John 14:6)
    Religion is about rules & regulations – I don’t need religion either gee-bee

    The census tells us that most people in NZ consider themselves Christians, but less than half identify with a religion.
    Gee bee like many others I see the two as being different.
