    When Chuck does it, it's not because he's genuinely offended but because he's attempting to gain the upper hand by embarrassing his opponent, and he knows it will trigger certain other forum members to jump to his defense.

    But they hate Trump, so they're good, and shall be defended, even when they mock Christianity! People who stand up to their anti-Christian jackassery are "demonic".

    (To be clear, I don't see Charles in the same way I see JimL and Tassman)

    I think context would be helpful here:

    People like jiml and charles are routinely debased and insulted in every single reply.

    It is evil for christians (or anyone - but Christians make the claim they are committed to Christ and His grest love who laid down His life for all) to act like this over and over and over with not even an ounce of remorse, without any care or compassion for those they malign.


    It is wrong.

    Gosh, I sure canít wait till I have a plank so far shoved in my eye that I canít see my own behavior, laid before me. Does it hurt when the plank is first inserted?

    Because telling someone their behavior is "almost demonic" is in no way insulting...

    But of course, it's okay when you do it.

    And yes, i would describe the irrationality that arises during our conversations as almost demonic. There is little to no sense to it. People become angry and irrational without any apparent cause. They dont understand what is being said and they see only evil in every word. But as is so often the case, once again you are off on the next race to create another such interaction as nothing ive said would invoke matthew 5:22.

    Jesus rebuked even his own disciples for allowing themselves to be used as tools of satan. Christians often give in to the flesh, to anger, to bitterness, to fear, or to judgement and in doing so find themselves being used to accomplish Satan's goals in this world.

    I would class a great deal of what happens in discussions here as fitting that bill. People abusing each other verbally day after day. No kindness, just insult afrer insult after insult.

    And it just doesnt need to be that way. It should not be that way. At least not comming from the Christian participants.

    That is not the solution either cp. Again, I appeal to the nature of God in you that you wake up to what is happening here. This is not of God, nor is it of the Spirit of God. And it will take all of us to change it
