@jwinnie Well, first there is a practical difference between practicing the common religion of Christianity and following the Jesus described in the Bible. Many people claim to believe in the Bible and follow its teachings, but don't really live out their faith or really know God.
Following Jesus is about having a relationship with Him. The Bible just points at Him, and is a very powerful tool for that.
Revelation from God is possible, as the relationship between us and Him goes both ways. but He doesn't contradict Himself.
The Bible is one way God speaks to us, and how we can read to understand God better. We can know exactly what Jesus taught and what other first-hand followers of Him said.
I don't know much about your beliefs. What do you mean when you say, "I share most of the fundamental ideas of Christianity"? What do you believe?
Did you know you can export your Mastodon Follows and other things as simple text files? That way if your instance dies, you can simply join another one and import those backups.
It's in your Preferences under 'Import and export'.
I thought I'd mention it, since I often forget to do it for too long.
@redstarfish Super useful. I was looking for something like this.
@JeffPaetkau I was talking to ragamuffinjim. Sorry.
@mondstern You're a Christian into tech. That's where I was going with that.
@nethaniah I have been considering such a service, and it would be very possible I think. I would just need to secure the long-term funds for that, as an email service is not something I'd want to go down in the future. It should be dependable.
@civodul Okay. Thanks! The problem is that this is an area that they will only be able to provide limited help in.
@civodul I have been trying to install GuixSD for the last few days. Still trying.
@thor Only after I start following you. At that point, your instance starts purposely sending your new posts to mine.
