    [quote user="Bob Schlessman"]And your replies have all bypassed my statements that we see in Scripture the use of strong language not only by our Lord but the Apostles at times where truth is concerned. [/quote] Are there occasions in Scripture when strong language is used to describe and respond to people and their teachings? Yes. No doubt. Do those

    [quote user="Thomas Black"]Modify above comments to "They are apparently from inception...." and so on.[/quote] Thank you for the amendment, Thomas. I must say, however, the additional word does little to amend the core nature of your claim. You're willing to move from "They intend to spew...and mock...." to "Apparently, they intend to spew...and mock

    [quote user="Bob Schlessman"]The labels "rubbish" and "rigged" were not directed at any particular person(s) but at the general nature of the documentary in question. This entire discussion has gone far astray from my original post. There is implication in your replies that suggest personal attacks where there have been none. If a person came up to

    [quote user="Thomas Black"]They are not - in any reliable form dedicated to revealing facts. They are, from inception to direction to production intent upon spewing a singularly errant viewpoint and this with such consistency that I must conclude it is no mere accident of careless scholarship but intentional bias. They do not exist to document anything

  • Re: God vs Satan

    [quote user="Bob Schlessman"] I think the heart of our disagreement here boils down to one word - context. If I am having a discussion with a non-believer I would handle it differently than if my discussion is with a church member. And furthermore it might take on different language if I am discussing something with other ministers or teachers. But

    I want to respond to some of what others have posted regarding my previous caution regarding a judgmental attitude toward those “mockumentaries.” A) Richard and Bob seem to believe that the brusque language of this thread’s critiques is somehow acceptable as long as it is delivered “in house.” Bob describes the adjectives “rubbish,” “rigged,” and “brainwashed

    I am struck by the vocabulary of this thread. So much protest of those "rigged" and "rubbish" "mockumentaries" that have "brainwashed" our society. I watch those shows and find them informative and helpful. If people ask me about them, I usually recommend that they watch. I have never felt threatened by their content or scholarship, nor have the people

    [quote user="Jack Caviness"]Jonathan's opening statement was "I guess it all comes down to your view of Biblical authority - is it the word of God or not?" He was talking about the authority of Scripture not the interpretation of it. Since we are all fallible human beings, our interpretations will naturally differ. I have lived with the same woman for
