Well, this is only my 2nd post on these forums. I live about 30 miles south of Seattle, moved here from the Boston area over 20 years ago. I became a Christian in 1980 as so many others have, after reading Hal Lindsey's "The Late Great Planet Earth". I was Catholic at the time and it took me about 4 years to realize what being "saved" was, but I believe it actually took place for me while reading Hals' book.
I found these forums because the other prophecy forums I have frequented for the past few years (Rapture Ready Forums) seem to be dying. Not many posts there anymore. These forums seem much more active and there is alot more to read here on a regular basis. I don't post nearly as much as I read other posts. I guess I'm mostly a "lurker" : )
