Reading the comments and responses here have humbled me. I do not feel qualified to be sharing my opinions here. But I'll be back!
Posting is not qualification based in all honesty. All these things we share here are for our spiritual growth. And even if we should disagree on such matters, I have found that disagreements are based upon the foundation of how a person views the world, life and three basic questions that are common to our shared human race family;
Where did we come from (why am I here?)
What is 'wrong' with this world?
How can we 'fix' it?
Some may disagree with their answers to these questions yet, if you really look deeper into the vast diversity of subjects posted about, it all relates to spiritual topics in all honesty, which means that man searches to know the answers or solutions to these questions within him/herself. And some have genuinely found the answers and all of us live life based upon whatever we are building our lives upon to support our view of life.
So, your part in being created as the rest of us, does have an important purpose in the scheme of things, which of course is based upon your foundational perspective.
Don't be shy jeffhrs3, this forum is a great place to grow spiritually. Because even if someone disagrees, may they give you a reasonable response for the disagreement, to allow you to see where in yourself, you have based your own view from and who knows? Their 'disagreeing' may in fact enlarge your view to consider what you once may have thought being impossible, now turning around to being seen as quite a possible possibility.
By all means do come back!
Blessings in your ongoing growth in spiritual understanding,
