This is what I told my BA mods some time ago, that I will be leaving Born Again.

So some questions you may ask:

- When? -- When membership hits 777. Remember I like the number of perfection? Jesus by his grace has blessed this group and blessed me through this group, so I'll leave when it's perfect.


- Why? -- Please do not come up with speculations for this reason, for the actual reason is more of a Spirit-led one. I've been feeling a tug to draw closer to the Lord instead. Like Jesus shows with himself as an example, to be a good shepherd, you gotta be a good sheep. And Jesus never stopped drawing from the Lord. Like he says, he does what the Father does. So just take this as that I'm retreating to find more grace in the Lord. To be able to feed the people of God, I need to fatten myself with his teachings too. I hope to thoroughly soak myself in the Lord in the time being.

Another thing is that I want to remove strongholds. I'm sure it looks like it's great, to be a 'chairperson' of a jesus-centered group of 760 odd people, I mean, we started from 3 or 4. Apart from the grace of God this is not possible. Plus, another thing that I've not really bothered keeping a secret about, is that the actual creator of the group is lumiina. That's why she's also on the mod list. It's more like returning the group to her, and she's very faithful, and is a great carer. <- is there such a word? Soon doo boo is also very pleasant to talk to, very likeable :)

The bondage I want to break, is the use of titles. It sounds like oh wow, yeah like Fae's a moderator and all, of course her Xtian group is big! Yeah. That's one aspect, the other is that I don't want titles take dominion over my life. When you have status of some sort, it gives you lee-way and leverage of some sort when stating something, because of the assumed authority. Yet I believe the authority that God gives is only through anoiting. If I get pompous over some man-made status and discard the teachings of God, then it's really of no value.

- So what now? -- Well, you can still send me GBs, PMs whatever. I still will be writing about Jesus. I might come back (not near future though), but I'm taking the leap of faith that BA will continue to abundantly prosper even when I'm not lurking.

Yeah so ok, that's about it. I wanted to keep it short, but I talk too much. I've been greatly blessed through this group, I hope the articles and stuff there is able to help you in your journey to seek and find the Kingdom of God.

Lastly, Psalms 23:1


1 The LORD is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD
Forever.

Fae nothing on Earth is ever complete or perfect. 777 is nothing. 7 means nothing. Infinite 7's mean nothing. Earth is imperfect.

Aw and I just started to get to know you. I want to thank you again for alowing me to be in this group and not think I was a strange old man. This has opened a mission for me, you know and every time I pray about this group. Asking Lord is ok to be with all this youth. Some one turns up with a issue that seems to be made from what I have already gone thru. So I will be here as long as Lord thinks I am needed. I want to be of use for the Lord. It this seems to be one the Lord has led me to. It was your profile that lead me to the Born Again group. So its your fault I am here. but, really thank you and I will be praying for you and your be praying for us too.

We will miss you. If God is calling you away to do His will then praise God. Just stop by once in a while

Aw, sad to see you go, but it's for God, and that's what matters. :3 God bless you and I'm praying for you. ^^ Oh yeah, at this moment I'm watching this thing on TV and it's a televised sermon by Joseph Prince at the New Creation Church in Singapore. Hehe... coincidence? I think not! XD

Good luck Fae~~

Nope, it's not coincidence! His sermons are so hilarious haha

As for 7, well, I believe God, and I believe Jesus, hence I believe his words. Earth is not perfect, but Jesus is.
