Happy Reformation Day



Unless I shall be convinced by the testimonies of the Scriptures or by clear reason . . .I neither can nor will make any retraction, since it is neither safe nor honourable to act against conscience. God help me. Amen

Keith, I posted this on my site, but just in case you don't read it anymore...here ya go...

Keith, did you not read the entire dialogue??? I did nothing except explain to david that his use of profanity showed his spiritual immaturaty. He said I was "bitching." Do you believe this is a cuss word? Then Cheatwoods, chimes in with "chicken crap is not that bad." Come on!!! You don't have to be a brain surgeon to see she was trying to play games. Then brian shows his maturity by calling me a "jerk" and an "ass." You have the audacity to say I'm being harsh?!? I have called no one names. I have told three people that I do not appreciate their attitudes on MY SITE. One is not sincere with her comments (cheatwoods). Two are immature and like to call people names (david and brian). Even you have said brian has a "you're not the boss of me attitude." Did I come on your blog and tell you that you are a bit over the top?

"...the harshness of your comments don't come across as very 'pastoral.'"

Matthew 21:12

"Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves."

I guess Jesus was not very "pastoral?"

I'm not comparing myself to Jesus (I've even said repeatedly that I am not a pastor), but there comes a time when you have to stand up for what you believe and let people know when they are wrong. That is what is wrong with most so-called christians, they have no back bone and don't want to step on anybody's toes.
