Okay, I see how everyone feels about Jesus on the surf forum. Due to the responses, at least in my posts, Jesus and surfing will still exist. If anyone wants to join the movement, jump in and do not be afraid. These guys are harmless. They just get upset when there are no waves.
Wayne, it would seem that by a 2.5 to 1 majority, most of posters would prefer not to have Jesus on this forum. The results of your poll seem pretty clear. Wasn't the point of this post to gauge public sentiment and then to respect it?

Impacting the coast for JESUS
BTW: was only looking for surfboards, surfers, and people to be saved
I thought that pretty clearly implied that if sentiment was against you, you would refrain from evangelizing here. You did invoke the name of the Lord when you posted it too.
34*When Jephthah came to his house at Mizpah, there was his daughter, coming out to meet him with timbrels and dancing; and she was his only child. Besides her he had neither son nor daughter. 35*And it came to pass, when he saw her, that he tore his clothes, and said, “Alas, my daughter! You have brought me very low! You are among those who trouble me! For I have given my word to the Lord, and I cannot go back on it."
36*So she said to him, “My father, if you have given your word to the Lord, do to me according to what has gone out of your mouth, because the Lord has avenged you of your enemies, the people of Ammon.” 37*Then she said to her father, “Let this thing be done for me: let me alone for two months, that I may go and wander on the mountains and bewail my virginity, my friends and I.”
38*So he said, “Go.” And he sent her away for two months; and she went with her friends, and bewailed her virginity on the mountains. 39*And it was so at the end of two months that she returned to her father, and he carried out his vow with her which he had vowed. She knew no man.
And so he killed her because he was a man of his word.
71.67% Say NO, if that doesn't spell it out for you than nothing will. It's not that some people don't want to talk about Jesus or religion, it's that most people would just prefer to keep that out of a surf forum. Many including myself believe in God, but this is not the place I come to have such discussions.
How about everyone just ignores this thread and all future posts/threads containing topics and content of no interest to the reader? You're all bumping this thread repeatedly which fuels the fire and makes the forum more of a political venue of the highest magnitude rather than a laid back surf forum.

why is amerika a christian nation?do we really want to live in fairy tale times?i know the "word" like the back of my hand,and theres many things u can argue about.the laws of our country,bases on the 10 commandments,thou sat not kill,steal,blah blah.jesus said every sin is equal so if u lie,its the same as murder but the justice department doesnt see it that way.also god said adam and eve,well god also told cain to kill his son abel,so should americans start killing their first born kid?also noahs arc,maybe we were supposed to do that for hurricane sandy.i guess all the deer,wolves,bears swam across the atlantic to make the voyage.
its like when they say muslims preach hate and preach to kill infidels(non believers) the holy bible says the same shyt.religion should only be reserved for people with nothing to lose,like inmates at death row.people got along fine for generations without religion.the native americans loved everybody,and then the "white man" came over with his fairy tale bibles and slaughtered them and stole their land and here we are today!!if u need read a book to tell u not to steal or kill,then u belong in a mental hospital.praise jesus
i was locked up in middlesex county in 2004/2005 and thats when i became religious.i was locked up for being in the wrong place at the wrong time facing a serious sentence.a scary lookin black guy like 6'10 270lbs came up to me,i thought he was going to beat me up but he came to preach the word of god.this guy never said what he did to get in there,but said he was supposed to get out at the same time as me and we should go to church together.this guy was one of the nicest guys i ever met,didnt curse,didnt do anything bad,kept his faith strong,etc..so my day came and i eventually copped out and with nearly 2yrs already served i got out with time served.a few weeks later i seen my friend on the front page of the paper,seen he was sentenced to 85yrs in prison for being a serial rapist.if any of u remember the rutgers rapist,well that was him!!turned out god had other plans for him.i wrote him in prison thanking him for everything and eventually lost touch over the years.after a while i didnt need religion anymore,and when u look at it from a different point of view,u realize its all bullshyt.i believe in a god,but dont believe in jesus or the bible,or allah or anyother super hero.
i was at the beach earlier checkin out the stormy seas,when i noticed 2 little teens pulled up next to me and started rolling a blunt.i was thinkin about nockin on their window and taking their shytty weed and throwing it in the sand to teach them a lesson like u dont roll a fukin blunt at the beach with cops passin every 2 minutes.i felt like doing the work for jesus but my conscious told me il get charged for allegedly giving pot to kids,when in reality i was just going to throw it away.thats how it was when i was a kid,the older guys come up and take ur shyt,and next time u dont do it where everyone can see
Sure. They made it a point to say and write that Jesus "walked on water". So obviously he was the best, most cross-steppin-est, nose-rider of all time! Go Jesus! Plus when you surfed with the messiah once you got done with a sesh he turned "water into wine" and you had a great fish dinner...all on him! he's the bomb!
