SC, Let me state the obvious back at you. You came on this thread this morning and deliberately stirred ashes that were cold. What takes place between to posters in a private e-mail exchange is none of your or anyone's business. Now concerning generic cakes, that is an issue between you and others, I have not been apart of that debate. I have enjoyed your thoughts in past previous posts, but lately some of what you write is as sounding brass.

He's good at twisting his attacks on others and making the recipient of his attacks look like the perpetrator. It's best to avoid him altogether, especially if you are a maidservant of the Most High.
Thanks ladybug. I agree, but on my part God has called us to peace. -- Have a blessed Lord's Day.
John UK wrote: Thank you bro. I do remember a similar thing some time ago, and can't remember how well it went. Anyway, it is good that there are two of us willing to engage in sensible convo with him. Blessings to you, brother. MS, it is a very sad thing that you have just proved my point. But I will ask the Lord to bless you with a new revelation of his great love for you, and that through that you may be able to forgive me for any perceived atrocity and be restored to a peaceful heart which loves all people without respect of persons. No need to respond, if as you say you cannot find it in your heart to post to me any more, you have posted your last one and I have to abide by that.
Thank you. Please forgive me also for my harshness in my reponses to you. Peace & Grace to you.
You seem to fancy yourself as the super saint, moderator,and sentinel of the SA forum. I challenge you and anyone who is interested to look over your posts over the past five years, and especially those to ladybug, Dorcas, B Mc, and myself.
Pride is a vicious serpent in one's bosom that clings very tightly.
John UK, Ye do err. I made a general comment to encompass all errors that are perpetuated by posters in regard to the gospel. I know not Marcus, but by what he has written. Whether he or anyone who posts is a regenerate soul, only God knows.
You have quite a censorious spirit towards some of the ladies who post here, perhaps that should be addressed before you start to weed out another's garden. Good day to you.

Your welcome. The ramifications of these heretical movements are nothing more than Romanism in a Protestant dress. Their fruit is a new definition for justification and presumed regeneration of baptized infants in covenant community.
Thank you Connor for your very good question. Those issues that you raised are echatological. What we are encountering on some of these threads is a departure from the orthodox, fundamentals believed by biblical,evangelical Christians down through the ages. That is what I would call heresy. I would suggest you examine the posts for yourself and then reach your own conclusions by what the Lord speaks in His Word.
The church is filled with theological confusion, error and unbelief.
When some would confront these issues in the spirit of Elijah, strip away the sheeps clothing and expose the wolf, on come some who sanctimoniously start their rant and slander condemning those as slammers, heresy hunters, (fill in the blank).
Heresy must be prospering in the assemblies, for none DARE call it heresy.
Frank wrote: Sister, I can't believe someone other than me has studied the New Perspective of Paul. What heresy. It taught there was no salvation by justification through faith, but justification only was available in some covenant way trough church membership. It basically said Luther got it wrong and poisoned the entire world by making them think that the RCC was a works based denomination. It claimed they were not and also the Jews were not. GOOD FOR YOU! It is simply intellectual hogwash.
Thanks brother for your input. One who wrote and preached on this heresy was the late John Robbins of the Trinity Foundation. Many of his sermons with PDF can be found here on SA. One in particular that addresses TNPOP is "The Theology of N.T. Wright.
