How about it, AMR? Are you game?

    I only ask that he NOT be long-winded' in his approach. Old GM has limited patience and doesn't abide elongated sentences that are comparable to reading 'War and Peace' in one sitting.

    Be prepared for a 5,000 word smoke screen that only AMR can understand.

    I couldn't help notice that AMR chose several 'short sentence posts' and not any of my well thought out opinions and observations. Pretty crafty of him.

    He keeps track of every thing that I say also.

    I wonder if he writes about 'Old GM' in his daily diary?

    I'm well prepared for that 'certain possibility.' I'll merely skip over the non-essential material.

    Don't get me wrong, I admit AMR is well-educated and knows his Calvinism, forward and backward. His weakness lies in the fact that he isn't well acquainted with Paul's Gospel (The Gospel of the grace of God.) He's articulate and well versed in fanciful posts. I prefer 'SIMPLICITY' for the most part. That way, everybody understands what's being said.

    From time to time you need to be called on it in hope that the forum does not degenerate into a child's schoolyard.

    Try making good quotes. Use the spoiler tags [spoiler] [/spoiler] around quotes of more than a paragraph or two, or perhaps just quote a small portion of a post rather than filling the page with redundant content.

    I have started trying to do that, to make more of a "Reader's Digest" version to cut down on replies of replies that take vertical miles.

    A nice try, but I am not taking the bait. Fooled me twice, shame on me. There won't be a third time. I prefer to walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil (Eph. 5:15-16).

    Now if you are sincere in rehabilitating your current behaviors, pick your own locus classicus and provide a substantive interpretation demonstrating how that passage defeats Calvinistic doctrine. Perhaps we will go from there.

    What is exegesis? You ought to know by now that, 'Old GM' is not highly educated and hardly in the 'Higher echelon of Inteligencia.'

    Old GM kinda thinks he is (Third person) GRATING on ya. So, I'll just mosey on along and let you make it on your own from now on.

    You may not like GM's comments, but I love them. Double-mindedness? Nonsense.

    You really need to stop picking on GM, and start making YOUR posts easier for us to understand.

    Now, be nice!!!!

    Well, actually my WIT is a gift and a HUGE part of who 'Old GM' is. If ya know what I mean? Apparently, you've not seen any of my 'serious' posts. Either that or you just glossed over them, because you don't happen to agree with my Theology. No problem. Unless you think there's one?

    Don't you dare. You just keep on being you and don't let a foot tell you how to comb your hair.

    1 Cor. 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? 18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
