My time to digress

I have been a member for a good bit of time, and have found that I am posting less and less and focusing mainly on reading posts. I do sometimes think of new posts, but find that I can't bring myself to posting them for a number of reasons.

The reason I am posting this in Faith, Spirituality, and Theology, is because I feel that the decision to announce a lesser involvement on ATS/BTS is not about my interests in its content, but rather the focus of all my thoughts and ideas focus mainly towards F,S,&T and I am having a hard time having anything more to say to anyone about these topics.

I consider this probably my last meaningful thread for that reason. I would like to hear others that feel the same way in that there isn't a whole lot more to say about faith, because it really has all been said before. I liken this to a silent defense much the same as Jesus did in front of Pontius Pilate. I have listened to and sometimes commented about the wide range of beliefs here and have learned a thing or two. It has strengthened my faith which is primarily one of trying to find reason in judging righteously all the differences in ideas, religions, and philosophies. I personally feel I have come to my own conclusions on this matter. I also feel that there is nothing I can add or subtract to anyone else's faith at this time. That never really was my purpose either.

But, all this really means is that I will just become a lurker; constantly watching the threads for some tidbit of information and knowing my place and purpose.

I feel the time of renewal is close enough that I should step back and watch rather than be involved.

Comments welcome.

I hear ya cluckin', big chicken

I've gone through seasons like that, though for different reasons.

Just remember, everything has not been said; the Bible is called the Living Word because God reveals Himself in radically different ways to us through even the same passage of scripture, constantly growing us. As God tells us in Psalm 66 verse 16:

Come and listen, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.

Though you may not realize it, and may not see the fruit, know that God uses us when He drives us to share with others what He is teaching us or bringing us through. However, there are times where He tells us to be silent as well. Seek Him, and do what He leads you to do. Don't assume, though, that He's done using you through ATS
