Welcome! :)

Do you mind telling us a little about yourself? Are you Orthodox, Protestant, Catholic, a seeker? Just curious. We welcome you regardless and hope that you find this site helpful and informative. Just beware that some folks love to argue just for the sake of arguing, so tread cautiously. ;)

Peace to you.

Selam,

Welcome to the forum.  :)

 Tell us about yourself when you feel you're ready.  In the meantime, look around and enjoy yourself.

I think he's referring to the OP, who appears to some to not be a real person, but rather a computer program designed to impersonate a real person.  Such a program is called an Internet robot, or just a bot for short.

I've only tried bing a few times, but I'm going to avoid it from now on just because of you, Mr. bot.  :)

Micro$oft must be doing really bad if it has to put bots on forums like this, which in the grand scheme of things, are quite small. I think that's good news, personally ;)

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
