TheologyOnLine.com is also known as TruthSmack.com. Many have asked... "what is a TruthSmacker"?

"Truthsmacking" is the ability to create a artful, clever, brief, possibly humorous post or thread that delivers truth and rebuts falsehood all while entertaining the reader.

TruthSmacking is not limited to the Christian, although I think it will be painfully obvious that non-believers will have a dramatically smaller arsenal of truth at their disposal.

Can you offer what is and isn't TruthSmacking?

For example, is Clete's thread: which would you rather - artful? Clever? Humorous? Does it it deliver any kind of truth and rebut all falsehood?

Can you offer what is and isn't TruthSmacking?No. But I know it when I see it. :)

And if you'd like some examples be sure to take a look at posts by Lion, Crow, Knight, Turbo and Clete. Not that there certainly aren't more as many are truly up and coming around here but these have perfected the art. :D

Poly smacks with the best of them. :up: I also think Lucky is a pretty good "smacker".

Nineveh, Yorzik, One Eyed Jack also come to mind.

so far.. sozo..like one after the other, remember his on here since I am new.. have to get to know more people.Sozo is a great TurthSmacker.

And just wait until Poly and Turbo return!

Poly and Turbo are two of the other TOL admins who have been busy lately but they can smack with the best of them!

Lucky is one of my personal favorites.

Clete rocks.

And I love reading BillyBob when he is smacking the commies. :D

I like reading Bob b's threads..
Clete is one of my all time favorites too
Billy Bob has dang near made me pee my pants laughing
Knight either has a deadly honest truth smack or a funny one
I really like Truthman and Deardelmar
Vaqureo45 always has good points
Guysmilie makes me laugh
Gosh theres so many great posters on TOL I could easily keep going. There are so many different qualities that people have here and it makes it really fun.

ThankYouJesus

I hope I haven't forgotten anyone, but these women have all done an excellent job of standing firm in the faith, and should be commended for giving an account of the hope that is in them. I know that they are busy, but it is always a joy to hear from these women in the body of Christ.

Don't kid yourself, folks. A Truthsmacker is anyone who can simultaneously mimic and entertain a certain clique within TOL. I should know. I was once considered one until my "dissention" became apparent.

Therefore, dissociate within your mind the label "Truthsmacker" and the ernest wrestling for reality. There is no association.

Strangely, this isn't the first time I've gotten this. Rest assured; I'm me. I don't carry any other handles within TOL. Cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle in my eye.

"Truthsmacking" is a bogus word that was made up by a microscopic minority. It is not in any dictionary. If you "Google" the word it only comes up with this site and CWS Talk. Otherwise, it doesn't exist in the real world. Perhaps a few hundred people might use that word out of 290 million Americans. Come Knight, join the real world and stop inventing bogus words. Is "truthsmacking" a word from the Esperanto or Ebonics language? I think the word for you should be "truthwacking". There, I "wacked" the "truth" to you.

I have always respected and enjoyed cattyfan's posts but I haven't had the time to read most of the others save Poly who is obviously a misguided alien from another planet. :p

I'll have to read and watch. Let's see if I qualify as one. I have a caustic mouth.

Perhaps once you have identified a member as a truth smacker, you should put something on their profile that says so.

I have come to admire the way the Truth smackers people post. Today everything has become too politically correct. People are too afraid to come right out and say it. It need to be said when someone on the board posts poison and calls himself a Christian. The time for 'love' has passed. If you let the false teacher go his merry way, then he may drag others down with him.

So I differ with people who disapprove of Truth smacking. Deceivers need to be smacked down.

:rolleyes: :sigh:.....so what do you suppose we call you then?

Truth Smacking is good so long as it is done in a respectful manner aimed at enlightening a person rather than making them feel worthless.....it isn't so much what you say as how it is said that determines whether or not the other person takes you seriously or not....and if they don't then you just wasted you're time
