  1. I have to admit, I did get a good laugh when he "apologized" for one of his many insults, but then, in the same post, continued to hurl more insults. It's like saying, "You're a jerk, an idiot, a moron, a dope, a fool, a homo, and your wife is a pig. I'm sorry for calling you a jerk, you dummy." I truly do not understand the hatred. I disagree with people about much more important things than this and yet, we still manage to be respectful of one another. I also find it interesting that he continues to try to apply Romans 16:17, but doesn't follow that verse's instruction to avoid u
  2. I'm not asking for fellowship. I'm just pointing out that, while you did not mean your words to be so, Jesus said we should consider your contempt for us a blessing.
  3. Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on My account. Rejoice and be glad for your reward is great in Heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. - Matthew 5:11-12
  4. To all, I'd like to take a minute to apologize for my behavior in this thread. It's never a good idea to let your pride speak for you. I did and caused a trainwreck. To all I have offended, I am truly sorry. I will try to do better in the future. Mike (aka "Auburn88")
  5. Thanks for the kind words. There are a number of ways that we can deny Christ every day. But isn't it good to know that God is faithful, even when we are faithless?
  6. So, Jerry, have you thought about how you're going to approach the topic of this thread at all?
  7. I collect records. I won't get into that because I don't think my choice in musical genres would win me many friends here, but Greenwich Village in New York is famous among record collectors for it's hundreds of used record stores. When I lived in New Jersey, I would go up to New York about once a month to cruise the record stores. One autumn Saturday, I drove to the train station, took the Jersey Transit into the city Once there, I jumped on the subway and headed to the Village. Dummy that I am, I got on the wrong train and ended up in an underground shopping mall underneath a huge of
  8. Thanks. That's very kind of you to say. I've been sick the last couple of days, but I'm hoping to join my church's evangelism team tonight in Newark for "Newark Night".We give out tracts, do one on one witnessing, hand out bottles on hot days. Most of our team is in Dover at the NASCAR race doing that today. That's kind of an all day thing, though, and I didn't feel up to that. We don't do much door to door because we're so far out in the sticks, it isn't really practical. But we do try to hit any event that has people and we try to go to the "party districts" and witness.
  9. This thread is about arguing against Calvinism. Do you plan to tell us why you disagree with Calvinism? Or do you just plan to continue to try to derail this thread with your personal attacks?
  10. It's too late for that. The barbarians are already inside the gates.
  11. It's a clear violation of the 1st, 4th, and 5th Amendments.
  12. I don't think running away when you don't get your way is a good thing. If he had said that he realized he was wrong and was contributing to a volitile situation, then that would have been a noble thing. But that isn't what he said. He said he's moving on because "those people" (i.e. "Auburn88") will not repent of the sin of disagreeing with him. That's not noble. It's just childish.
  13. Seriously??? Do you have any idea how hypocritical you're being, after being the one to make it personal, insisting that it shouldn't be personal? Is this what they teach you in your church?
  14. Isn't it a little childish of you to be able to say whatever you want to say, whether it's true or not, and then, the moment somebody questions you, try to get them banned? You said we seek our salvation in knowledge. This isn't true, so I asked you for evidence. That's all. That's all I did. And now, because you've been caught telling a lie, you're throwing a temper tantrum.
  15. OK.. So, basically, your plan is to lie and then run away when you get caught.
  16. No, you said you had a Calvinist who made the mistake of believing you were his brothers in Christ and then you threw him out because he disagreed with you. You didn't offer one shred of evidence to show that Calvinists seek our salvation in knowledge.
  17. So, would you like to show evidence that we "seek our salvation in knowledge"? Or are you just bearing false witness again?
  18. It's a reference to Malachi 1:2-3 2“I have loved you,” says the Lord. But you say, “How have you loved us?” “Is not Esau Jacob’s brother?” declares the Lord. “Yet I have loved Jacob 3but Esau I have hated... Malachi is a book in the Old Testament.
  19. Then you haven't been reading my posts. I've been trying in vain to get somebody to talk to me about Calvinism. First of all, go back and read your words in post #3. You called us closed minded, proud, stuck up, and false teachers. That's being nice? Second, when you say "why should any of us keep on replying", keep in mind that, so far, only one of you has actually replied and even he had to plagiarize somebody else's work. But, plagiarism, or not, at least he had the guts to try. That's a lot more than I can say for you. Now, since the purpose of this thread is to discuss
  20. The purpose of this thread is for you to explain why you disagree with Calvinism. Do you plan to tell us why you disagree with Calvinism or do you plan to continue trying to derail the thread with your personal diatribes against me?
  21. Once again, I'm giving you every opportunity to correct me and you'd rather just made snide little ad homs. This thread is about arguing against Calvinism. Do you plan to tell us why you disagree with Reformed theology? Or do you just plan to keep on derailing the thread with your little personal vendetta? Incidentally, I find it really interesting that you feign offense at being told you're being dishonest, but then turn around and tell everybody I haven't cited scripture in "fifteen or more posts" when I just cited Acts 13:48 two posts ago.
