Why is this so important to you? Why do you need the approval of others for your faith and who said anything about not being friends? I defended you when you were unfairly accused and don’t pretend this thread is not directly related to me. You’ve been stewin all this time because I dissed your church? You need some assurance Chris. The kind your church denies you and you wouldn’t be “praying into the black” and hoping for the best.
That whole post of yours tore me apart. I pay close attention when you speak. It doesn’t have to be like that my friend and now here you are trying to corral some acceptance from people whose opinions you should care nothing about. You have no spiritual foundation, don’t you see that? No fellowship with God Himself. It’s all books and study and “the church” tells me I’m ok. It’s tragic. It’s tragic because I don’t know if I’ve ever met anybody who longs to see the face behind the rent veil more than you do and your piddling your life away in carnality and vain empty religious pursuits. Say whatever you want here, but when you’re alone with yourself you know what I’m tellin you is true.
You think a post like this makes me your enemy? I may be the only friend you’ve ever had. BTW, Cornell West is a pagan. A secularized socialist affront to the gospel and anything in the world other than a protestant Christian.[/quote]
Can someone point me to the thread where Trib and BC had their little “my fairytale tale God is bigger than your fairytale God” spat? It sounds like fun. You guys need to work on your love for each other, not physically manifested though of course as that kind of behaviour is frowned upon, and rightly so. Wouldn’t want people thinking for themselves, where would that get us?! [/quote]
Address people with the same courtesy you would face to face, please Just because you are behind the safety of a computer screen does not excuse churlish behavior.
Quick bit of common sense advice, if you are going to make haughty, presumptuous statements, it would serve you to not come off as a troglodyte, yourself.
Fair enough. Although I work on the Christian principle of do unto others… and I am more than happy for people on the internets to challenge and make fun of my beliefs. I personally think the internet is great for saying things you wouldn’t and having said things to you people normally wouldn’t. It’s a great way to get new and interesting ideas, feedback, thoughts, and be challenged in your own ideas. So we will have to agree to disagree.
Back on topic though this thread reminds me of classic film on religion the life of Brian. When they decide Brian is the Messiah within seconds factions had been set up each believing their way of following him is the right way: follow the gourd, hop on one foot, hold up your sandal!
