I am still here. I watch this website every single day. I don't post much because, as mentioned, I usually end up regretting it. So, I read, but post very little. I will mention, sometimes I think I am in a different universe than the people who post here, but I bear no ill will towards anyone who posts here. Not a soul. And William, I think I am to your right. If not, we are very close.
I don't think everyone here is my friend, but I have made friends of several of the people here. When David lost his position all those years ago, I offered to write a recommendation letter for him. He declined. I believe he thinks I was too "fundamentalist" for him, or that I would attempt to sabotage him. My intent at the time, was to write him a very forward and cordial recommendation. I like David. It is true, by the way, that, before I was an SB pastor, I had been a member of an IFB church. But the IFB group was far too tight a fit for me. Like a necktie tied too tight. I was happier as ab SB.
I still count several people here as friends. Bruce had constructive advice for me as I worked my way through the thesis for my master's degree. I recently retired from the workforce to devote more time to my disabled wife. I am about a year away from finishing my PhD in education. So, I have several irons in the fire. But I keep up with you all every day. To you all, stay safe. Be well.
