  1.   Just want to say that I greatly appreciate those who have been taking the time to answer questions for me on various topics in a spirit of graciousness, love and wisdom as they have been on here on some fundamental issues for me. As I have mentioned, I am a first generation Christian, saved in an Independent Fundamental Baptist church, by doctrine a Baptist, but sometimes I look at the "culture," as some would call it. I grew up in public schools, etc. I wouldnt say it is the values that I hold, because I hold to Biblical values, when I was in public schools, a psychologist diagnosed me with Asperger's, which is a form of autism where they say one has a hard time reading people and different situations and responding correctly. I believe God can overcome all things, but on a practical level, what would be your counsel for a young man in such a situation, if he is having difficulty developing relationships in his church, feels he isn't wanted, not needed, etc.?  Don't mean to get too personal on here, but this is a site where there are good, godly Baptist men who may have worked with others in similar situations and could give good, Biblical counsel. God bless.

      Thank you John. I've just graduated from Maranatha Baptist University with an Associate of Arts in Christian Ministry, and I have a pastor friend of mine in Tallahassee, FL inviting me to work with him in the ministry this Summer, go to Summer camp, etc. and this is really the first time I'm going to be involved at this level in the ministry of a church and it's got me nervous...though I believe God will get the glory from it. Amen.

      I'll say this, a lot of people at my church were shocked when they found out I'm earning this degree, they didn't think I could do it.

      Do you think that Aspergers' would stop a young man from serving the Lord in full time ministry?

  3.    I just have a brief question, just received my Associate of Arts in Christian Ministry from Maranatha Baptist University this May. What are some positions members here hold on the KJV and the issue of separation. I remember in my Greek classes, we used the Nestle-Aland version, and I have had some give me grief over having such a version of the Greek New Testament, yet, nobody from the Sword of the Lord influence has ever really sat with me and explained why the KJV is the only legitimate translation to use and we are to separate and have no fellowship with those who do not use it, almost like those who don't use it are heretics and aren't as good Baptists?

       Where does that come from? Can anyone recommend good literature on this issue? One of our last assignments was to watch the debate between Dr. Daniel Wallace of Dallas Theological Seminary and Dr. Bart Erhman of UNC-Chapel Hill (cannot believe I thought of getting my bachelor's in pre-law from this school. Lol.). Any  counsel, knowledge, wisdom given is greatly appreciated.

      Thank you for your answer John. Never really had someone take the time to explain it to me as you did, I was saved in a KJV church, but as a first generation Christian, it was just something I was supposed to believe, not question. I came out of a Catholic home where I didn't really know what I believed about anything, so now as a saved, young Christian, I'm wanting to make sure I have solid sure why i believe what it is I  believe.
