  • ECT: Self "banning"-Time for a Galatians 1:17-18 KJV

    I came to TOL, years ago, excited, after being saved, with the aim to edify others, per Romans 14:19 KJV, Romans 15:2 KJV, 2 Corinthians 12:19 KJV, Ephesians 4:16 KJV, Ephesians 4:29 KJV, 1 Thessalonians 5:11, and share, per 2 Timothy 2:2 KJV, what I've been taught, by the LORD God, through other faithful men. I wanted others to know about how great a Saviour we have.

    However, in recent days, I admit that I've not been true to, specifically, the Ephesians 4:29 KJV exhortation, and this has "sapped" the joy from me, excitement, which I enjoyed, in former years, in being given the honor, of preaching the gospel/good news of this great Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, and instead, have focused less on 2 Timothy 4:2 KJV, less on "by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers....speak thou the things which become sound doctrine..(Titus 1:9 KJV, Titus 2:1 KJV), and less on, per above, 2 Timothy 2:2, KJV, and too much on swatting gnats, wolves. Make no mistake-I still will not negotiate, "make nice," with commies, or wolves/wolf-ette's. However, it is time to "take break," get "re-charged," "re prioritize," bury my head in this great book, and its details, study it, respect it, love it, submit to it, mediate on it, survey it, so as to rightfully expound on it,with my typical brilliance, and humility, in the future.

    I take comfort in the fact that the LORD God needs nothing from me, or any of us, and it is a privilege, honor,of me/us to have been given the gift of being His ambassador, on this great forum/outlet, TOL, despite my failings, and that I realize, that I need Him much more(quite an understatement!), than he needs me. I also take comfort in the biblical principle that my obligation, charge, is to be faithful, not successful-success is in His quite capable hands.

    Therefore, fellow members of the boc, the sheep/babes in Christ, wolves/wolf-ette's, I "sign off" for now, following in some of the great ones of TOL, who have done likewise, such as the man of chicken, STP, heir, Nick.....as I am taking a hiatus, an "Arabian" vacation for a spell. As Arnold would say, "I will be bahccck!"

    I also post this, to dispel any possible forthcoming speculation, that I've been "wacked" by the wolves!

    Bye, bye for now, and, being a stock trader, don't buy bonds(for now!).

    Everyone who has not believed the Gospel of grace is not saved, no matter what else they believe or do.
    By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

            Well, you'd better not stay gone long. I will find you, and drag you back if need be.

                You remember, of course, what a smack down you gave me when I first arrived. You were unrelenting.

                I thank God that you did, because I have learned so much from you over the years. Had it not been for you, I'd still be stuck claiming repent and be baptized was the Gospel of Grace.

                Thank you, dear brother, for the great teachings you've given, and I hope and pray you will continue to do what God intended. Just step up to your task at hand... a little R&R never hurt anyone, but the battle remains.

                          Self-bannings are hilarious.

                          Anyone remember when [MENTION=595]Knight[/MENTION] had hisself banned?

                          One of TOL's greatest moments (along with the day [MENTION=5910]chickenman[/MENTION] registered. ).

                            While this might be somewhat true (I've not read every post you've written and so cannot say with any precision), I would have to point out that the nature of TOL, being a mostly anonymous (and therefore consequence free) internet forum, as well as the nature of the particular crowd who happen to be posting here at this time, it would be rather difficult for you to have not been harsh and rather ugly to those whom you engaged with here. You and I have somewhat similar personalities, I think. I used to get so angry and vitriolic with the Calvinists here it was just unbelievable. Your alternative would have been to put gobs and gobs of people on ignore, as I have done, in which case you find that there are very few here who are worth your time who don't already mostly agree with you.

                            There was a time when one could spend countless hours debating, actually debating, really interesting and difficult topics of all kinds here on TOL. That really hasn't been my experience here for quite a long time, but things like that are cyclical and the pendulum will swing back the other way eventually. In the mean time, its a matter of digging through the mud to find the gem stones.

                            While you're gone, remember that your time here wasn't wasted and there were some who read your posts and were edified by them, even if they didn't write a response very often.
