How does bad language by anyone consign them to eternal punishment? While it may speak to poor judgment, education, lack of patience, having a bad day, etc., I fail to see the connection to one's regenerated status.
There is no question in my mind that she does, though I am certain that neither of us completely agree with your definition of the word.
Her denial of the sovereignty of God . . .
A non-issue of regenerated status, Nang.Her disrespect and hatred towards confessional saints . . .
A non-issue of regenerated status, Nang.
I can point to numerous saints that had plenty to say polemically about their brethren. Surely we do not consider them unregenerated just because they gave in to their passions at the time and in the historical context they were made. At the time the church militant was in a fight for truth and much was said that would not pass the politically correct climate we have today. Sadly this is often overlooked and folks just think these old, dead, guys were haters. Nothing can be further from the truth. In times of war, spiritual or secular, all manner of bad acting takes place.
Nang,You are not my brother in the Lord, after all!
How could I have been so deceived, for so long!
You are over reacting here, sister. That you have been one of the most vilely maligned persons, and an older women at that, is not in dispute. I have went out of my way to note that this grieves me is a matter of record in my past posts and you know this. I have made it clear that no one, men especially, should be treating you, or anyone, as you have been treated. But I cannot make it my life's mission to defend you at every turn when there are times you just inexplicably poke the hornet's nest and then wonder at the reaction.
Please reconsider your statements.
Again I ask you to reconsider this, Nang. Your memory is quite long for past perceived offenses. I only hope that is just as long for past perceived love for you and your husband.I am not your sister . . .
and I should have recognized that ever since December 2008, but I hoped otherwise for all these years, since your first unreasonable and harsh rejection of both my husband and myself.
I am a fool in the Lord . . . not your sister in the Lord.
Uh . . . where have you been?
Have you not seen what she has called me?
No one calls a "sister" in Christ, vulgar names such as "Nagina."
Unless, you think that is clever and cute?
If you do, you are not my brother in Christ.
