Glad to have you in the forum... and glad to hear you've been reading Ray's material for awhile.

I'm from Nashville myself... not sure if we have anyone from Louisiana.

Welcome Eirinkos,
I am from North Alabama and visited New Orleans at least two times a year. My wife's aunt lived there but thankfully moved here before Katrina. Stay in this forum and you will find many blessings.

Eirinikos means peaceful in Greek. Eirini is peace I believe. I don't know how to conjugate greek words, I just found it somehow. I use it for everything.

I live in an area sadly devoid of true scriptural teaching (but then again I guess that's everywhere). I go to a home church usually, and its neat because God told this guy to start it even though at the time it didn't make sense to him, so it's not one of those "we're cool b/c we have a home church" kind of deals. But, they also still believe the old baptist trinity/hell thing that I've come to hate so badly. I've discussed my beliefs with the leader there. He only responds with a smile and says he still believes in Hell, but he sincerely hopes that I'm right.

I've learned the truth through people like Bill Britton, J Preston Eby, Gary Sigler, and Ray here. My dad, however, has learned most of the true teaching by revelation alone.. something I wish I had more of. I guess he's part of the reason I so eagerly believed Britton, Eby, and Ray is because my dad used to talk about things being so wrong with church teaching, even though his talking only made me scratch my head. He is still in the church system, but is rather bitter about the whole thing.

Me personally, I am boxed in where I am. I've been in school 9 years and this is my last semester. I have no desire to start a career. I got a degree in computer science and now Im studying music. My music teacher wants me to go to grad school, but I can't stand staying in the same place any longer. I just can't do it.. I have to move on, but I don't have any idea where to go, and God hasn't spoken anything about it yet. Needless to say, I suppose, I am so dismally depressed. I don't want to live like regular people, drinking and acting stupid, and I also don't want to be around christians much because of the shallowness and sillyness they seem to live in, not to mention the crazy doctrinal issues with me being a heretic and all for not believing in the trinity or hell anymore. Loneliness is like a cancer that eats out your soul, and I feel like I'm terminal.

Well, I guess you're realizing you're cut from a different cloth altogether. You are a unique individual on a unique path. Lonliness is hard to take, but solitude is a gift from God. Think of it as solitude, a time to reflect in God's presence with eirinikosness. :)
