    Conversations within this forum may be reported to be useful for spiritual decisions by some people and not useful by others, and they both may be correct, or at least, their reports are pretty much unimpeachable.

    If I thought they were not helpful, I would leave the Forum. The main reason I post is to be helpful.

    It's just a message board. Different people contribute and receive different things.

    Define 'spiritual decision'.

    The decision to accept or reject Christ as savior. The decision to accept or reject a Christian worldview of a Creator and Lawgiver. These are spiritual decisions.

    Except they aren't decisions. One does not decide to believe something. And I don't get why they should be labeled 'spiritual'.

    Because "God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

    I wonder if this is always true. One of the regular posters here, after having a drug problem and dabbling in the occult, shopped around for a religion, chose one, and joined it.

    I guess you are right. Humans are remarkably adept at willful self delusion.

    Forgive me, but I'm going to stop you right here and ask you to call this person out... even if it's only to me via PM. I have a reason for asking.

    Have you ever taken the time to dig deeper than surface assumptions? I'm going to guess 'No'.

    You would think this. Except this also applies to those making this kind of sweeping generalization.
