My name is Paul, a born again Christian since the day I first believed, 3rd August 2008, after I had a revelation that JESUS CHRIST Is The Truth.
Formerly a drug taking, binge drinking, thieving, adulterous, fornicating, often short tempered sinner Saved by Grace through faith in The LORD JESUS CHRIST; my inner man being Renewed day by day. Dying to the flesh and by The Grace Of GOD to bring forth fruit in keeping with repentance.
A man who enjoyed following Millwall FC (🎵It's best team in London, no, the best team of all🎶 - as the song goes) home and away since October 1982, but shortly after the day I first believed felt that it was not for me to go any longer.

The first time I played chess was after watching Garry Kasparov v Nigel Short and was hooked.
I went to the local library and got a book on chess for beginners. I had a couple of friends who played chess and through playing against them learned a bit.
I hadn't played for years and then stumbled across, joined and have been enjoying it ever since.

Since the day I first believed a lot of what interested me has fallen away, but chess is something I still enjoy playing even though I'm not so good and will often make mistakes in games.
But it's the enjoyment I find in playing the game.

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; 1 Corinthians 2:12-16), 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.
