Greetings Fellow Baptists,

 

My name is Diarmaid Murphy. I am a 30yr old Irish guy from Co Clare in the West of Ireland. I

live in Dublin though and am a fairly new Christian. I was Baptised roughly 2 years ago in

Grosvner Road baptist church and was saved about 6 months before that. I am new to this

online baptist community and am so glad to have found it. I am spending a good deal of time

in Clare at home with my parentsand where they live is a very remote and isolated place called

Mount Shannon (its really nice though!). I have been feeling very cut off from fellowship with other

Christians and after initially having a profound spiritual high have found this last year very tough 

spiritually. I am in serious need of community, fellowship, church, bible edification and most of all

our Lord Jesus Christ in my every actions and moments.

 

I am so happy that I have found this community and would be really happy to receive and give any

support/ fellowship/ encouragement possible.

 

Thank you all,

In Christ,

Diarmiad

Thanks for your replies people. I guess I'm going to like Online Baptists.

If there are any members from Ireland or have Irish family it would

also be cool to connect even though any person living for God is 

an equal in fellowship..

 

Oh yeah, this is the church I was baptised in. Some of their sermons are pretty

cool..

I am 3/4 Irish Diarmiad.  My ancestors immigrated to the USA in the 1800's.  According to a cousin who follows genealogy records, I have relatives in Ireland.  Primarily in Dublin and County Mayo.  Welcome aboard!  In about a year, my husband and I will be traveling to Scotland, to help church planter friends of ours with their ministry there.

In response to your question Miss Daisy Im not sure why it has it so often.

I grew up in a catholic background so I just thought that was usual for 

Baptist churches it being the first and only Baptist church Ive gone to..

Is it different in your church?

Each Baptist church establishes their own time for the Lord's Supper. Our church has the Lord's Supper once a month, on the first Sunday of the month. Others do so at differing times; some more often, some less.

Diarmaid, I have Irish in my family background as well (if you can't tell by my picture - that is myself and my son).  My great-grandfather Thomas Devlin came over with his family to escape the Great Famine.  I'm of the O'Devlins of County Tyrone on my paternal side.  On the maternal side, I'm of Scotch-Irish descent of the clan McPheters (the spelling my grandmother's family used) immigrating from Northern Ireland as well.  And then there is the McCoy link, also on my maternal grandmother's side (this is the clan McCoy of Hatfield/McCoy fame here in America), also being of Scotch and Irish descent.

We have Lord's supper about once every 3 months. I suppose coming from a Catholic church where the whole mass is just to get to the point of communion every time you go once every other week seems realistic. When I was Catholic, people would stand in line,finally get their communion in their mouth, cross themselves and go right out the door! that's all they came for was the wafer. I thought it very rude, as mass continues for 5-10 more minutes.

      I got saved in 1982 when I was in a crisis. I walked into a Bible church, and talked to the pastor. I got saved that day, and in a few months I moved from TX to WA.  I asked my neighbors about churches, and heard a lot of negative comments about one in particular. This church was described as "legalistic", "fanatical", etc, etc. This sounded interesting! I decided to go. I walked in to morning services on Round up Sunday, and sat under an evangelist named Al Lacy. I was hooked! The people in this church taught me so much. I was baptized and set out to learn all I could in my "new convert zeal". We moved numerous times, courtesy of the USN, always finding another IFB church. We are now retired, back in Texas. I have 3 grown daughters, all making a profession of faith. Working on the grandkids now. I know that I am where the Lord would have me be.
      I am a member of Faith Baptist Church in Teague, TX. Earlier this year, the Pastor was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. We (the men) are looking for a new pastor. Please pray that the Lord will send us the right candidate soon. We are small in number. Please pray also for our pastor.
      The Lord saw me through a career as a RN, after my girls were older. No longer working after a wreck in 2012.

      Hello all! Before I tell you all about me, I suppose I should take the time to actually explain why I'm here.
      Over at Glenn Beck's The Blaze website, I have an account (going by the same moniker). Yesterday, another member called TheSword and I got into a little debate pertaining to evolution and the age of the earth and this debate continued on until today. At the end, TheSword was kind enough to invite me to this forum presumedly to become a little more active in religious-based conversations as he/she (rightly) felt this would be a more appropriate venue for that sort of discussion.
      About me: I was raised as a fundamentalist Southern Baptist from birth, seeing as my family has always been quite active in the church. Nothing negative has ever happened to me in church or my family and I love both groups of people for raising me the way they did, but in around February of 2013, after a couple of months of skeptical inquiry, I came to the conclusion that I lacked a belief in any gods. I won't go into the exact detailed reasons I rejected my god belief (I'm sure that'll come later in dedicated threads), but I will say it's something I'm fairly quiet about in my personal life. As far as I know, my family is unaware and only a handful of my friends have I felt comfortable enough to let know. I still live with my parents (I'm pretty young, but I won't give an exact date in the interest of privacy) so I guess you could say I'm waiting until I'm out of their presence to come out and admit I no longer believe in any gods.
      Anyways, that's me! Nothing much special, just a curious guy who likes to have conversations with people so I can understand what they believe and why. I hope to get to know all of you and I hope my presence doesn't serve as a source of discomfort considering I am, in most senses of the word, an outsider.
      Good day all
