My name is Paul, a born again Christian of four and a half years. Formerly a drug taking, binge drinking, thieving, adulterating, fornicating, Millwall supporter ( not that all Millwall fans are bad ). Saved By Grace through faith in The LORD JESUS CHRIST; my inner man being renewed day by day. My first experience of chess was watching Kasparov v Nigel short back in the 90's ( i think i've remembered & spelt their name's correctly ). i liked what i saw, went to the library, and got a book on chess for beginners. I had a couple of friends who played, and i learned more playing them. I haven't played for years, and came across chess.com, joined, and am enjoying it. I've got a lot to learn in understanding the terms and what things mean. Since being born again a lot of what interested me before has fallen away, but i still enjoy playing chess. It's always been a struggle for me to find someone who plays chess, so finding chess.com was a nice find :) GOD Bless you :)
And we urge you Brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with all men. See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all men. Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is GOD'S Will for you in CHRIST JESUS. Do not quench The SPIRIT; do not despise Prophetic Utterances. But examine everything; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil.
Now may The GOD Of Peace HIMSELF Sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be Preserved Complete, without blame at The Coming Of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. Faithful Is HE WHO Calls you, and HE Also Will Bring It To Pass.
Brethren, pray for us also.
1 Thessalonians 5:14-25.
Finally, Brethren, rejoice, be Made Complete, be Comforted, be like-minded ( as Of CHRIST HIMSELF ), live in peace; and The GOD Of Love And Peace shall be With you. 2 Corinthians 13:11.
Grace And Peace Be Multiplied To you In The Knowledge Of GOD And Of JESUS our LORD; 2 Peter 1:2.
"Salt is good; but if the salt becomes unsalty, with what will you make it salty? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another." Mark 9:50.
