    Verily! Verily!

    I should realise that when you engage in behaviour defined as trolling [See the Urban Dictionary: "making random unsolicited and/or controversial comments ...with the intent to provoke an emotional knee jerk reaction] you are not actually trolling but when other people make comments you do not agree with, or like, they are trolling.]
    With regards to Gondy - I already said I was "poking" him, just like I do Sparko, Rogue, and others I like. Do you REALLY think I was serious when I was mockingly "singing" the "Gondy and H_A up in a tree"? That's a silly little song that kids sing when they see somebody being cozy.

    I think you're just jealous because I don't like you as much as I like them.

    He does, which means, currently, it's not.

    I think a major difference is that we don't "recite" the BF&M, nor do we require anybody to "hold to it" or to "subscribe" to it. It's a body of work that attempts to define who we are.

    I'd bet the vast majority of Southern Baptists don't even know what's in it.

    I still like him - glad he's around.

    As Gondy has clarified, he did not "acknowledge" anything - just presented it as an option.

    You are correct.

    No formally organised church that I know of accepts the raw Biblical statements regarding the nature of Logos and his relationship to the Father.
    The creed of 325 in itself does not conflict with the raw Biblical information, the later creeds do.

    No, I presented that as a potential explanation, in conjunction with another one.

    Only when dealing with extremists (wrt your religious adherence) like yourself on the subject.

    He can be a reasonable guy when discussing other topics, but whenever the conversation turns towards Christianity, he transforms into a raving nutter.
    Takes one to know one. And I suspect Sparko would say the same to you on the topic of covid.......

    I have to assume it's Dunning-Kruger. They think their experiences make them "experts", and therefore anything they believe about Christianity must necessarily be correct.
