    OK, guys, here it is.
    All of the PM's I have received, the private e-mails, the posts in the Chaplains Corner thread, all wanting a forum dedicated to things of a spiritual nature.
    At the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Franklin was asked what form of government the US would have.
    He replied "A Republic, if you can keep it."

    And, at the conclusion of much deliberation about this forum, it is presented to you with the same caveat.

    You have a forum that is spiritually based - if you can keep it.

    This is the place for prayer requests, testimony sharing, bible questions, virtually ANY topic of a spiritual nature.

    But this is not the place to debate whose belief is right and whose is wrong.

    Be respectful of others beliefs, just as you expect them to be respectful of yours.

    Have fun and enjoy yourselves in this new dimension of TFF!

    Kinda figured that needed to be in bold. I will expand on this. I am doing this because i really want to keep this forum.

    LETS ALL PRETEND WE ARE AT A TABLE AND THERE IS AN ORANGE ON THE MIDDLE OF THE TABLE. THERE ARE 10 PEOPLE AROUND THE TABLE. WHEN ASKED WHAT COLOR THE ORANGE IS THERE ARE 5 DIFFERENT ANSWERS. ACCEPT THAT AND BE DONE. ONE MANS WORD FOR AN ORANGE IS PURPLE, SO BE IT. ONE MAN'S BELIEF IS HIS BELIEF, RIGHT OR WRONG IT'S HIS.
    Sometimes you have to be wrong to find the right. YOu cant force it on someone.

    Thanks eveyone involved in puttin this together.

    Thanks for the forum Terry:)
    Spent this beautiful Sunday at the cabin with my Fam listening to "general conference" that we have every six months. Our leaders give talks. Usually it's the laymen members giving the talks on Sundays. LDS Church.

    I AGREE! at least they all said it was a ORANGE!! religion has been the basis for so many wars just because one did not or could not accept that another had a MINOR diffrence in interpitation! it takes a very long time for everything to come together. each person needs to find their own way through the scriptures. some are not ready to accept what the meaning is. ONLY JESUS, GOD, aand the HOLY GHOST will change a persons mind and only when they are able to accept and understand the word! till then WE must all accept our Brothers and Sisters as they are. AND REJOICE that they, like the 10 people above, at least all agree there is a GOD or orange as the case may be!!

    KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK TERRY!!

    Thanks Terry.
    I hope we can keep it going but I'm afraid that it will go South as many has done before. But I will say this, if it can be done, Terry, you are the man to do it. Seems like you are a lot like I am. I believe that there are good things in all denominations, and I have not found one yet that I did not agree with some of it.
    Great going Terry.

    Thank you, guys, but I was only the squeaky wheel;
    Other people, qualified and diligent, did the actual work on this forum.

    THANK YOU, SouthernMoss!!!
