    Dang did we all join because of JP Holding? I was actually on Usenet in various Christian newsgroups and saw some posts of JP Holdings and a link to Theologyweb. I joined early 2004 I think (I just missed getting the "apple" badge for first year members)

      I joined because of Christian Manga (can’t recall the exact name). MelMak was a member of that and he said it was recommend by them. I remember quite a few members came from there. DeeDee made a thread once asking who Al, had come from there, and lots of folk did.

        Seems like a lot did. I was on Usenet Christian newsgroups as well but I don't remember seeing JP Holding there.

          I knew about Christian Think Tank but not about JP when I kinda wandered in after someone left the door open.

            Could have been someone referring to him and me finding his website or theologyweb from that. Been a long time now.

              That sounds right.

                    Yes! Quite a bit in the old days. You never saw the discussions with Blonde or Jackie that were quite spirited. And lots of others that I can't remember.

                    Civics kind of takes over everything else these days. We need YOU to get some good theological discussions going.

                      I should start a thread entitled "Politics is the devil!" just to see how far it goes.

                        Put it in the right place! Where ever that might be.

                        And I remembered that the crazy lady's name was Da Blonde, not just Blonde.

                            I think I found it closer to 2003 to 2005.

                                I realize when I joined this crazy site I was in RCIA ( rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) that was back in 2008. Wow how much has changed since then.
