          Jeff and OC were much easier to deal with than 7up's lunacy.

              7up is your classic "don't pester me with the facts, my mind is made up" Mormon.

                    Jeff is tad more vicious than this though.

                      Give him time. He's getting snarky too.

                        Jeff only gets vicious when he gets frustrated. I'm not at my best when I get frustrated either.

                          Jeff can be downright enjoyable.

                            I was pointing out that Bill was attempting to rail against an argument that I never made in the first place.

                            And here you are starting a thread that has little to do with THAT.

                            But since you brought it up....

                            As the context of Robert Millet's speech provides, this is a stranger on the street who is "antagonistic" towards the Latter Day Saint. His point is that there is no reason to engage with a person a approaches you with that kind of mindset.

                            Jesus Christ put it this way:

                            "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you." Matt 7:6

                            Proverbs puts it this way: "Do not speak to fools, for they will scorn your prudent words."

                            And Paul put it this way, "And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to infants in Christ. 2 I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, 3 for you are still controlled by your sinful nature. ." (1 Corinthians 3)

                            So, was the Apostle Paul "lying for the Lord" when dealing with the Corinthians?




                            Anti-Mormons will pretend that LDS are trying to keep secret the doctrine of exaltation. Yet , it is right there in the "Gospel Principles" manual that is taught to investigators.

                            You all just have a lot of huffing a puffing about nothing, and it all smacks of hypocrisy as well.

                              Yes, which reminded me of Robert Millet teaching to "invent" a question and answer that, instead of the question that was asked.
