    My impression, it is a matter of: "we" do not like or agree with Truster, so we give TH a POTD.
    Then you should question your bias on the point. That's not reasonable.
    Truster is calling a thing idolatry without justification. His problem is in both overreaching and a rush to condemn over his own error.

    Do you thrive on such shaky laurels?
    Because thanking someone who compliments a thought you had can only reduce to that, eh?

    She doesn't worry me. I suspect she's nursing an old wound she gave herself in my name...but who really knows. God bless her even so.

    She doesn't bother me. I think she's just nursing an old wound she gave herself in my name...who knows.
    I hope no one ever gives me a POTD if this is the kind of jealousy that flares up. Nang is nursing something, but I think it's a big ego.

    I think Delmar applauded you, based upon some (personal or spiritual) bias against another member-poster on TOL, without reasonable foundation . . . and you just like it, without finding it in your soul, to explain it.


    Truster is calling a thing idolatry without justification. His problem is in both overreaching and a rush to condemn over his own error.
    Where is your opposing argument, presenting why or defining what you believe is Truster's error?

    All I see, is you taking victory applause, without proper rebuttal.

    Really?

    Delmar applauded you.
    And, truth be told, that's what makes you angry.





    All I see, is you taking victory applause.
    And you want it.

    Repent, as in "stop sinning? "exhibit faith in God," as in showing "good works" to "prove" it? Go ahead, and lay it out for us. Show us that "subtil"(Gen. 3 KJV) form of "works based" "salvation," that all you Clavinists must embrace, to "prove" that you are one of "the elect," despite your denial/spin, to the contrary.



    How do you know, that they did not "repent," "exhibit faith in God?" You read their love letters/testimony? Were you in the bunker, with them, and know what they had in their heart, near the end?

    Satanic Clavinist="I know I'm saved, cuz my lifestyle tells me so." I'm on to your perversion of the gospel of Christ.

    TH does not provide an absolute answer or truth:



    Idolatry provides no good examples, does it?
    I'm sure he didn't mean that.

    For crying out loud! This was one man's opinion! He gave a compliment. No rebuttal is necessary.
    You are engaging in specious nitpicking! Quite unseemly in a woman of your caliber....

    I do like Truster. I am trying to get him to take me fishing. I am sure I would enjoy hanging out with him. I don't, however, happen to agree with him that my love of dogs is a bad thing. I have found dogs to be very relational. Cows, not so much. I have, by the way, raised far more cattle than dogs.

    Have you gone back to the original thread and read the entire discussion or are you just arguing over one post from that thread? Delmar has been participating in that thread, knows the whole discussion and found TH's response to be a truth smack, as it were. Go read the thread and then get back to us.

    Moderator status doesn't enter into it. I like Delmar. He gave something I wrote a nod. I said thanks, which where I was brought up is what you do. Maybe in the dark of some woods they throw fruit.

    I think Delmar applauded you, based upon some (personal or spiritual) bias against another member-poster on TOL, without reasonable foundation . . . and you just like it, without finding it in your soul, to explain it.
    Explain what? I offered to sustain my rebuttal and you stepped around it to do this. So...

    To give you a consideration your conduct doesn't include, here's the beginning of a fuller attempt at conversation on the point. Follow along and see what your pal does and, more importantly, doesn't do with it:

    I've had numerous pets over my years. We've always kept cats and dogs. In the country it's a fine way to keep rats and snakes mostly at the edges of your acreage, but they're also fine company and I've treated them the way a good steward should.

    Quote Originally Posted by Truster View Post

    Money, pets, our own self esteem, any of those can become sins out of their proper context. But within the proper context they're enormously beneficial.

    A number of studies have set out the benefits of pet ownership. Among them, children growing up with pets have a reduced chance of developing asthma and allergies, pet owners are significantly less likely to suffer from depression and pets generally improve the quality of life of the owner.

    That's a real blessing God gives us.
    Here was the thoughtful response it got.
    Quote Originally Posted by Truster View Post

    Nothing in my initial response remotely comes to the defense of idolatry. It is, instead, an attempt to distinguish between unhealthy and even sinful obsession and what is for most a healthy and beneficial experience. In short order he puts me on ignore for answering him in this spirit.

    Where is your opposing argument, presenting why or defining what you believe is Truster's error?
    That should hold your horses for a bit.

    All I see, is you taking victory applause, without proper rebuttal.
    You see what you need to see to do what you want to do.
    You aren't what you eat, but you're always what you swallow.
