"deceived/unfaithful "evangelicals" would be the spiritual adulterous, the pretend Christians in the ecumenical movement would be spiritual harlots" That is not what I said. Then you state "I'll seek to be more accurate in the future"? I've been taught that spiritual harlotry is related to idolatrous worship. I believe the names of those who are written in the book of life are known to God. Paul who had the miraculous gift of discernment of spirits said in Phil 4:3 And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life. He also knew that these men and women embraced the doctrine of the apostles and prophets that they taught them.
Mourner I am the one who stands corrected Sorry I didn't make that clearer

You mean www.monergism.com's biased definition, after all they are commited Calvinists and besides the real issue is:
Are we faithful to the word of God or not, do we lead people to Jesus or away from Him, no matter what we might call ourselvest
I'm amazed at the hate towards things on the internet.
I use Facebook, in a limited capacity of course. I don't spend hours on it, I just scan down my list and see if there is anything interesting on it and close it again. I don't play games, I don't add random people I don't know and most things I've blocked anyway. I'm one of those people that don't add you unless I want to.
I also don't post anything up that I don't want others to see. So that means barely ever.
Internet Banking isn't as insecure as some people thing it is either. I work in the IT sector, and while I don't have a problem with internet banking, I'm also cautious. I never open emails that claim to be a bank. I never send credit card information over clear text in emails. It is common sense really. If you check your bank account daily as I have to then you know when something is awry. Also, change your passwords frequently.
As for viruses, don't download stuff you don't know. Be careful what you open. Most viruses come from illegal software and porn sites!
As for the actual article -- I believe there is such thing as internet addiction and many facebook users suffer from that as well.

MPIA Question for you, isn't holding men's persons in admiraton what some devote "Calvinists" do with John C the Dhordt guys even C.H. Spurgeon despite let's say their rough edges (the things they did and got wrong)?
