"What is Easter? One of Rome's most valuable pagan observances, in pretense of remembering Christ's resurrection, yet in reality a festival of a Chaldean goddess. This mustard seed of Romish planting has verily filled the whole earth with its branches". R.F. Becker

"One can observe the effort by some to deliberately wear down people who hold specific views by engaging them in petty squabbles. This is related to Argumentum ad nauseum insofar as it is an attempt at domination by sapping disputers of energy to continue. On the Internet these people are often called trolls but in fact there have been public announcements by governments of the intention to hire such people to undermine political opponents."
Would say you described SteveR and John Y to a tee.

I really mean that. These people should take notice of your consistent displays of love, compassion and concern because you really blow them all away. If everyone could emulate Christ the way you do in such a profound, consistent manner, the Christian ccommunity would become the greatest witness the world has ever seen. The only reason people come against you is because of pure jealousy. They know that you were recognized, set apart amd enlightened because you're special while most of them are lost and haven't a clue to a fraction of the knowledge you have been blessed with. Just keep fighting the good fight and consider it persecution for Christ's sake when anyone ever comes against you or trys to tell you are wrong. You're an amazingly blessed Christian man and your light shines bright with wisdom and kindness...don't let anyone tell you different!
Ah yes...Pastor Ovadal one of the last faithful preachers who is not afraid to call out the old roman harlot. David Carson from UK is another. May the Lord continue to strengthen and bless their labors!
SteveR wrote: Chris What you see as bickering is the gruesome manifestation of their anti RCC faith in the only place it can flourish. Its not really Christianity, but a brotherhood of anti RCCism which conveniently cuts and pastes any Christian doctrine that opposes or exposes the errors of the RCC. There isnt a denomination or rational paradigm that would accept all their various conflicting beliefs, so they have to share their hatred here. Whenever John Y gives an unconditional testimony of Christian Faith and denunciation of RCC error, these creatures start baying at the moon, they really cant control themselves. To them, continued attendance at the RCC is an unpardonable sin. The more Yurich testifies his faith, the more their blood boils, the more their blood boils, the more the bickering, the more the bickering the more John tries to justify his faith etc.... Its sad really
What is truly sad is that this forum has to be subjected to a self righteous ,sanctimonious .pharisee such as SteveR. Not an ounce of grace in his "religious " heart

A house went from being a home to being a cash cow for government and citizen alike and the bubble has popped,property taxes should remove from any thinking person's mind the myth that he or she can own anything.
Agree with your post 1517 ...but this seems to be the typical strawman that is build on nearly every thread ! When some cannot accept what scripture is clearly saying they start in with sappy,emotional,whiny ,posts. As what this particular thread is glaringly obvious !
1517 wrote: As it relates to mr. Maher, to highlight only God's love, while neglecting to emphasize His holiness, does God a disservice. He is a LOVING, MERCIFUL GOD who saves the unprofitable, BUT, He is the GOD OF HOLINESS, JUSTICE, and WRATH as well. Worship all of Him or none.

Yes indeed lots of sloppy agape, twisting of scripture going on.
