Richard DeRuiter:

To Rev. Chris, Dan Eide, Chris Thompson, Michael Anda and DMB,

I think you have all made your points clearly and sometimes more than once. Many of the point made are significant and merit a thorough discussion -- but not here. These forums have proven to be a poor medium for discussions like these, and such discussions are not in keeping with the purpose of these forums. For those of you who want to keep talking/writing about this, I suggest you take it off line (email, skype, some other forum?).

For those of you who have a problem with Logos' policies, I suggest you take it up with Logos, as Bob has invited us to do in the first post of this thread.

[BTW, I'm not trying to paint everyone with the same brush, here. I just listed those I saw interacting in this discussion in the last page or so.]

Richard, thanks for that.  In my last post I attempted to announce that I'm done with this conversation.  I realized I carried it on far too long and am sorry for that.

Have a great day. I have better things to do than engage in mental warfare with an unarmed man.

Thanks for the blessing.  And same to you, Chris.  Geeked

Matthew,

I think it would be better to simply drop this discussion or take it off line.

Welcome back, AbiGail. We were wondering how long it'd take! Chris was wondering too.

Dear people of a certain behavior. I say behavior not beliefs because behavior is what is relevant to these forums. Your behavior is counterproductive - in an attempt to point out or convince people that a doctrine or group is Unchristian, you instead turn them away from listening to you. Your behavior implies that you cannot read and follow the basic English of the forums. Why then should I listen to you on something more complex such as Scripture? If you genuinely want to convince, please use techniques that might be effective - beginning with following the rules of the forums.

Sincerely,

a person whose beliefs you vehemently disagree with but does not believe much of what you assign to me.

Accurate statement of what I wished to say but once I have a cup of coffee I'll remember why I keep my mouth shut.

Michael Anda:
etymology of the word weenie?  Does it have a latin root?

censoring done manually:

"frankfurter," 1906, with slang sense ....following soon after, from Ger. wienerwurst "Vienna sausage" (see wiener). Meaning "ineffectual person" is 1963; pejorative sense..., or perhaps from weenie in the sense of "small" (see wee).

From one who has tried, woefully ineffectively and unsuccessfully, to hold accountable the conduct of which you write, thank you for this post. Now, better put on your hard hat and saliva shield!!  Big Smile

You really think it wise to use these exmples?

I make it a practice not to unnecessarily censor my source. Any complaints should be directed to the publisher Dictionary.com

No complaints about your source...just don't see how it helps to soothe the animosity.

Unfortunately I was focused on "5. decent; respectable: They gave him a good Christian burial. 6. human; not brutal; humane: Such behavior isn't Christian. " and didn't think of how some might pick up other portions. There are parts of behavior of individuals on forums that I still have to stop and force myself to think about because they are so far from my daily experience outside the forums.

Yes, I know you are on a higher spiritual plane. That's why I offered you another way to look at what you posted.

More likely just older. Having been the youngest child or a youngest child I amazed at how young one can be and still have a grandson graduate from college.Confused
