You bring up a very valid point,but,I never claimed that through Christ ,I was made perfect,I said that through Christ,I was made a better person.<quoted text>
The credibility factor of a convert goes (even further) into the negative when they claim a right to be petty, vindictive and abusive to people who dare disagree with them, correct their factual inaccuracies or even simply hold contrasting opinions - especially on the grounds that through Christ they are a better person than they used to be. To steal a line from Q, "So they say but cannot demonstrate."

Kidder Kodder,you will not receive any more ,vindictive or abusive responses from me....
Although,I may post something in order to test your sense of humor.......
