Re: I'm here!

I'm a long time Zone member...Since about 2001 I think. I check in occasionally to see what others are posting and to see if there are concerts or album releases planned, but I don't post that often anymore. I agree with Sue there isn't a lot to post about. I do miss the old days...Some of those pos...

Re: Petra March 21, 2020 concert

I got laid off from my job because of coronavirus hysteria. This is hitting the event and production industry very hard. A lot of freelancers who count on gigs like this for a living are out of work because of concerts, sporting events, and trade shows being cancelled. Hopefully this will blow over...

Re: Petra March 21, 2020 concert

I hear you. I get fed up with the media nonsense too. This isn't the first time this has happened though as you pointed out. This will pass.

Re: Petra March 21, 2020 concert

You have valid reasons to be annoyed, but I think the point was to let people know the concert had been cancelled. Take this to the Lord in prayer. He is bigger than all this.

Re: Need Resources !!!

I read through the replies, and there is a lot of good advice here. There isn't a whole lot I could add to it. I do agree you should be cautious. Try to determine whether this person is really interested in having a discussion about your beliefs or is trying to set you up. I agree also that scientif...

Re: Need Resources !!!

I'm sorry for not responding sooner, I just saw this. I've been occupied with work and a class I just finished. Let me give it some thought and I'll post my suggestions tomorrow. I do think a good way to start out is to try to understand why he has such a hard time believing Jesus loves us enough to...

Re: Pushing too many boundaries

It's been awhile since we've had one of these discussions. Brings back some fond memories. :mrgreen: I'll go ahead and express my opinion; it's not the final word or anything. It can be easy to take things the wrong way when you can't see or hear someone. It's a good idea not to take things you read...

Re: Petra's lyrics that are confusing

This is an old thread. :mrgreen: My main point was that although sin does need to be seen for what it is and dealt with, you need to look at the big picture and understand why sin is a problem. The reason sin is a problem is because it's disobedience to God, and disobedience is disobedience no matte...

Re: Called?

It can be tricky when you can't see or hear the person who is posting. I've been posting here a long time. Brent does post what he thinks, but it's not meant personally. You're young. Give yourself time to check things out and find out what areas you'd be interested in going to be a missionary. As I...

Re: Called?

I understand what you're saying, I didn't mean to imply you weren't making yourself clear or that I was correcting you. I agree that you are supposed to walk out your relationship with God as you experience life, and that some people may have more of an idea of what they should be doing than others....

Re: Called?

I think as Christians it's important to first of all be reading the Bible and know what the Bible says. As we get into the Word, God will provide guidance in what He wants for us. Our primary purpose is relationship with God.

Re: He Makes Us Move Not Us

This is a discussion board to post ideas and get feedback from other people. I don't see any need to delete it unless you really feel the need to. Maybe another way to view this would be that God guides and interacts with us but our relationship with God is a partnership, and does involve making a d...

Re: God Fixation: Current Sounding

I understand that, and I get why it would annoy people. As has been pointed out, they did some good shows during that time though.
