    For one thing, I do not EVER question the words of our Savior.
    I do examine my own words and deeds to see if they are a decent reflection of Him.
    Often, especially when dealing with you, I fall short.
    But,
    I keep on trying.

    Is it heavy lifting to be concerned for the souls of people who encounter a damaging witness to Christianity on your forum?

    Predictably, "whine" and "hate" showed up in your post.

    I don't base my faith on the behavior of others and what they do.
    I base my faith on Christ and what He does.

    Of course. It's always sad to see someone struggle. Especially when they are being fed crappy theology.

    But ultimately each man and woman is responsible for their own decisions and there is typically not much you can do about it other than give your opinion or guidance if they ask for it.

    I never really had much to do with Zoo. Don't know why he turned into a weirdo. I'm sure there was a lot more to the story than him occasionally posting on an internet forum.

    You are being unnecessarily harsh in my opinion. She is questioning. That is not hate.

    the "crappy" things i say are perceived that way because I am blunt and insensitive

    Not every Christian has the same amount of strength.

    Should strong Christians look down on, berate, and mock weaker Christians, or offer them a helping, loving hand when they see them in need of one?

    But as most people with a pulse know, feelings have more impact than fact.
    “Ted Cruz was my roommate. I did not like him at all in college. And, you know, I want to be clear, because Ted Cruz is a nightmare of a human being. I have plenty of problems with his politics, but truthfully his personality is so awful that 99 percent of why I hate him is just his personality. If he agreed with me on every issue, I would hate him only one percent less.” -Craig Mazin

    It depends. I never once thought Zoo was a Christian. Did you?

    weaker Christians who are mislead by the world into believing that we should accept perversion in our midst?

    weaker Christians who want to reject what God has written for what they believe the Bible should say?


    weaker Christians who reject the wise counsel they can receive here because their precious feelings are hurt?
