      The fact that you transparently think this applies to everybody but you is largely your problem.

          I don't know many people who are denying the fact that there's definitely something wrong with him.
          The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

            I don't think it applies to everybody but me. But you, CP, and a few others here are quite adept at the art of criticism, and have no compunction of any kind about saying very mean and even cruel things about and to others, Christian or not. I dont understand how you can be this way and not feel guilty about it or not wish you could change, but I despise every time you or CP drags me into one of these mud sling fests. I despise what it does to our witness for Christ, what it does in terms of fostering animosity and disrespect. It is a disgrace in every way.

              So STOP!

                After that yet another embarrassing performance The Spectator’s Dominic Green asks whether

                Is it more worrisome that Joe Biden might not be in charge, or that he actually is in charge?

                  This says a lot about your true nature, Jim. Nobody "drags you in" - Are you not a grown man? You come charging in like a bull in a china shop.

                  Do not blame OTHERS for your bad conduct.

                    That's an EGGcellent question, to which I don't have a good answer.

                      If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless. Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

                      ...


                      See how great a forest is set aflame by such a small fire! And the tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life, and is set on fire by hell. For every species of beasts and birds, of reptiles and creatures of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by the human race. But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God; from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be this way. Does a fountain send out from the same opening both fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brethren, produce olives, or a vine produce figs? Nor can salt water produce fresh.

                        Yup, I figured that was next....

                        Either play "thump the other guy with the Bible", or whine again about being "personally attacked".

                        Jim, when you can learn to be the Christian you want me to be, lemme know.

                        Otherwise, leave me alone.

                          You play like a child on a playground that thinks he can bully the fellow that won't fight back.

                          I choose to let you carry on like this CP without laying into you like you actually deserve. I choose to bridle my tongue because it is the right thing to do, and what gives God glory.

                          At some point in life we realize that the bullies and the abusers such as you are the actual losers in life..

                          A man who is so proud and so stiff necked he will not even humble himself before God's word. What sort of man is that CP? Even the wayward prophet Balaam yielded to the word of God spoken through a donkey. Think about it CP, consider me the donkey, and James God's word, and humble yourself before God in this matter.

                            I'm confident the Pharisees felt the same way about Jesus, so at least you're in good company.

                              I'm reminded of the joke about a guy drawing lines across the pages of his Bible. Someone asks, "Underlining your favorite verses?" The man snarls, "No! I'm crossing out all the parts that don't apply to me!"

                              Any time somebody tries to shame somebody else with a Bible passage, it is almost always with the hypocritical air of someone who thinks they are above reproach as far as that particular passage is concerned.

                                Wow, this kinda sounds like the "he who has hatred in his heart has already committed murder" principle. You have all these wicked thoughts and feelings, but you're "going to bridle your tongue".... how very noble.


                                Not playing your stupid little game, Jim.
