TGL How can I be a better person here

Recommended Posts

Why would anyone want you not to post? I believe that you could use a little help with conveying your message in the grammar/wording you use. But, we do try to understand a lot of what you try to say. 🙂 I have worked with Hispanics most of my life, and am part Hispanic myself....but I still, at times, have a hard time picking up on exactly what you're trying to say. Others have publically stated that here as well. Suggestion....have you tried "Grammarly" software?  I know it helped many of my Hispanic friends to better convey what they were tyring to say.

I might be wrong --- I thought I was  wrong once, but it seems that I was mistaken about that--- but I have a sneaking suspicion that in reality; TGL probably has a very good English vocabulary, good grasp of (and usage of - away from OLB) English grammar, and may have even been born and/or raised in the US.

OFP. would you care to elaborate on what you said? Specifically why you think this about TGL Just wondering because I have not thought about this and strictly from his posts, I would not have even given  it any thought.

I've been around MANY people (from Mexico, C.A., Korea, Philippines) who had morphological and/or syntactical difficulties with English. His seems more an attempt to butcher (think someone "faking" Ebonics, Southern or Country lingo and getting it wrong) the language intentionally. Him being a chain jerker, it would seem in line with humoring himself at our expense -- of, all in good fun.

For the record, I don't have a problem with it (meaning I don't mind -- not meaning it always makes sense).

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
