JB I have followed some of your posts here on this forum, including the one on the debate board. I have to say that the faith I've seen you demonstrate is inspiring to me. I just wanted to let you know that. If I can help you in any way it would be a privelege.
I am so very honored. I am not all that comfortable using the word 'faith'. I know you meant no harm from it, no offense taken. I didn't come to believe in God because I have faith it's more to do with logic and reason. Faith is a 'cop out' word.
You're words did encourage me J'ing many many thanks.
Then allow me to replace "faith" with integrity toward God. And even though I've read through some of your posts I did not know you are going through such hard times. But knowing it now, or at least a small bit of it, you are even more inspirational to me.
From what I know and can see you remind me of Job. Job himself suffered many things and asked many questions of "why" and like you was confronted with comforters that would have had him forsake his integrity toward God, with statements such as, "you already believe in at least one god, so religion is clearly not helping you."
Reading about Job is inspirational but it is quite different than knowing someone like yourself, even if only over the internet, that seems to be going through similar things and yet you maintain your integrity.
I would love to know more about you and what you are going through if you don't mind sharing. You may have already said somewhere else but may I ask what type of cancer you have? What is the condition of the cancer? I would love to hear your "story", as much as you are willing to share.
