My convictions have not changed. I will, However, ponder a bit longer before hurling an unstoppable force at an immovable object.

    [quote user="Matthew C Jones"]The word "catholic" with a small "c" means universal. The vast majority of Christianity embraces this concept.[/quote] I am not convinced that is the case.

    [quote user="Matthew C Jones"] And did God tell you to correct all erroneous theology? You have your work cut out for you. We should not judge people by a label. If I remember correctly MCM is Lutheran. The past actions of others doesn't really matter. I have enough sins of my own I can not pay for. I will not attempt to answer for another's. [/quote
