Born in 1957. Born again in 1984. Was Lutheran from about that time until 2019 when my wife and I started attending an Anabaptist church. After everything was shut down over COVID we never returned there, but keep in touch. Rather we have been watching the sermons of a Beechy Amish Mennonite congregation in Pennsylvania (first Anabaptist church we ever attended) while on vacation) and wishing we lived there to attend. I am a young-earth creation believer and have done a lot of reading of the creation science materials over the years. I had basically believed evolution much of my life because that is what I was taught. I was at the university when I was born again and right away I knew then that evolution was wrong and that the truth was creation in six days.

I believe the reason I did not struggle with evolution at that point is because as a child my mother took me to a Sunday school class and, while I don't remember anything about the class, they gave me a Bible (well I remember that much). So there I was, a kid, maybe 10 years old, and something told me I should read that Bible. Well I tried to read it 2 or 3 times and never got much past about 1/3 or so into Genesis, but that was enough. I think God used that to embed the truth in me, though it lay obscured by "science" all those years. But I do believe that is why I immediately tossed evolution and believed the creation account. I knew another Christians who grew up in a church that did not teach literal creation and that person struggled with theistic evolution.

I also belong to a classical music forum. My username is from an opera by Mascagni, titled L'amico Fritz or My Friend Fritz. I am a big fan of opera, but also like symphonic music. Of course one of the most remarkable classical works is Handel's Messiah.

Thanks all. I occasionally would search for Christian forums and eventually this one came up. I checked it out for a while and finally, deciding it looked pretty good, joined up. The only other Christian forum I ever joined was an Anabaptist forum a couple years ago but the politics was so intense and so many on the far left that I gave it up. I learned that Mennonite churches range from very conservative to very liberal, much like in Lutheranism. I am only interested in engagiing with sincere Bible believing folks, albeit we may see things differently.
