I have no time to go searching for the many things you have said that are offensive to me or to others, but here's but one...dwight92070 wrote: ↑Fri Jun 04, 2021 5:05 pmThere's a saying, and I don't mean this in a rude way: Put up or shut up.
Put up the evidence of my "wrongdoing", or else stop accusing me of that wrongdoing. I have already answered some of your previous accusations, in my response to Backwoodsman, and in his response, he essentially said that I was continuing in my wrongdoing, to even defend myself. That is a lie. My defense was not an attack and he knows it and I think you do too. He also knows that when he accused me of PREFERRING attacks as my way of communicating with others, that he himself was attacking me and NOT telling the truth. Otherwise, like I said, produce the evidence of my wrongdoing.
Is there anything worse on a bible forum where we are trying to work out our varying interpretations of scripture?Dwight - What is utter insanity is for you to question the apostle John's logic, He is the one who concluded that Jesus was equating Himself with God, by calling God HIs own Father. I think your denial of that is a great sin. This is a plain statement by the apostle John, which you reject. There is no justificaton for doing that.
I might also point out that you have essentially called backwoodsman a liar in this very post.
Putting aside the frustration of trying to have a reasonable discussion on a point of interest -- your rhetoric is often overly defensive, accusatory and over the top inappropriate. If you can't see that, then perhaps this is not the forum for you. The hardest thing about this is that we have had a new member recently who I welcomed with a gesture that this was not like other bible forums and that even unpopular or questionable ideas where welcomed and discussed respectfully, even where we might disagree vehemently. He had a few insightful posts, and it seems he has left us. This makes me sad.
