It's time for me to push on. I have a satirical sense of humor that many do not understand and may find offensive. For that, I do apologize. Despite this site's good intentions, its message boards fuel considerable hostility among posters of differing views. IMO, it would have been much better had the creators of this site simply confined themselves to publishing articles about the Change Movement and the change agents and let it go at that. Maybe one day they will do just that.
Bill, as you have seen....I have started ridding myself of this site. It is not healthy and should be avoided. I realize that you and I have not agreed on much of anything, but we all have acted unkind towards one another. We could have done this better. I will, however, not back down to anyone who begins to call another brother a sinner just because he doesn't agree on an interpretation. It comes down this.....we all our privileged to be saved by Jesus Christ. Instead of accusations against another brother because he doesn't worship exactly as you do.....the energy should be used to save the lost. PERIOD.
Ken and Donnie, your heart speaks for itself. You can call yourselves ones who follows Christ and being knowledgeable of the Word of God, but unless you can convey LOVE to others and have the ability to use the Word to SAVE OTHERS, then you can know everything, but it is for naught.
1 Corinthians 13
1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
