    Your answer to Simplymee's #11 tells me something about your spiritual life. You are not a Christian and if you are; you are not born again; are you?

    1. hmmmm,interesting analysis. My response neither give rise to my denomination of Christianity or Non-Christianity. Unfortunately you have made a couple of very incorrect assumptions - a fatal human flaw we all share (making assumptions).

      To answer number 11 fully is to write a book (my believes, why, fact/support etc) and whilst I am still of this earth I am still learning and growing.
