Could you add 5 Guys to my best burger poll? An accidental oversight on my part. Given it was part of the dispute that led to the poll (as between it and In and Out) it seems unfair to relegate it to write-in status.

:e4e:

Also, I inadvertently hit Burger King when I meant to check Backyard Burger...so...if it isn't too much trouble...:o

Don't worry in 30 years the neighbors (at the retirement home) will just look out their windows and comment on you having new underwear from WalMart, then there will be the one that is still aware enough to realize you went to WalMart for Cherio's, friends, what we would do without them?

Now, back to the non-technical "Ask Knight" types of questions:


Dear Knight

How are we to deal with fellow Christians who serve two masters? We have a number of Christians on this site who say they are against abortion and homosexuality, but their allegiance to a socially progressive agenda causes them to turn our society into a cesspool. Is this an immature phase all young Christians have to go through? Are they mentally deranged? Can you truly be a Christian and act unGodly?

Thanks for all you do!

We have a number of Christians on this site who say they are against abortion and homosexuality, but their allegiance to a socially progressive agenda causes them to turn our society into a cesspool. You are 100% correct. It's sad isn't it?


Is this an immature phase all young Christians have to go through?No.

Are they mentally deranged?Maybe, maybe not. They might just be mislead.


Can you truly be a Christian and act unGodly?Yes, that's very possible.

For me it's anger. I try to get a grip when someone or something makes my temper flare up. That's when the nasty names pop into my head. I don't think that is fruitful, satisfying, but not fruitful. As you have seen I still get carried away by my temper but am working on it. A reasoned response is a good response. I'm just not capable of it all the time!

There's this guy I know at work who claims to be a Christian, but he has a reputation for unChristian behavior. He's been caught telling lies about me to other people. When I've tried to get him to explain himself, he won't. Lately he tells me that he's forgiven me and wishes I would forgive him, but he won't face up to the false witness he's borne against me. His friends, most of whom are atheists and homosexual-lovers, think I should let it drop.

What do you think?
Would a real Christian act the way he did?
Can true repentance come without facing up to your sin?
Can forgiveness be given to someone who won't acknowledge their sin?
Should I try to correct him?
Or should I shake the dust from my feet and shun him?

What do you think?
Would a real Christian act the way he did?Possibly. While you can often spot a Christian by their fruit you can't always determine that a person ISN'T a Christian by the fruit. Although, you could always give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they are not a Christian.


Can true repentance come without facing up to your sin?I don't think so.

Can forgiveness be given to someone who won't acknowledge their sin?No.
