After many weeks of silence it would appear that Johnny, Mark and company have conceded the field and fled to the safety of their TV program where they control the buttons and can limit and direct topix.
So much for the mighty men of God!
I wonder they will ever have the courage to reenter a fair and balanced debate again!

Preachers like Johnny are just as they appear. When the topics are limited to antics around town, that may not invite his participation as much as debate defending the points he's made on his program about his version of coC doctrine. Rather than debate with those of his own kind, it's unlikely he has the knowledge or skill needed to present his ideas and viewpoints in an open forum, such as this.

And out of control poster give excuses in his own mind to not 'cast pearls before swine', I imagine posters like 'suckers' may be plants to use such a defense against sites such as this. There was a time when people could disagree without getting rude, but such posters can also be completely ignored, and like a bully, they move on to where they can get a reaction from somebody.

What's to discuss about other peoples children? Their behavior makes no cause to pay that much attention to, and just reaks of Payton Place small town drama and carrying tales on too long.

For heavens sake, the IS enough truth to deal with~

I agree it is very funny to think that the self proclaimed masters of the word of God could so easily be beaten.

And for the record JC none of this is directed at you. While I disagree with some of your doctrine I believe you are sincerely trying to die to self and seek God's will.

John's camp on the other hand seek self glorification at every turn, like a small child at an adult meeting seeking attention fearful that they will go unnoticed.

Hence the reason you do not see JR’s band on here. It is hard to receive self-glorification here due to the platform being fair and balanced thus rendering them incapable of ‘defeating and destroying’ their supposed enemies. It’s hard to spin-doctor a discussion made here and not easy to defend a particular point as they do on live TV. On here, you win a debate by presenting facts.

Generally there are two motivating forces in the carnal world: Greed and Jealousy. In the gospel world we find the motivations to be: Truth and Love. Therein is the rub to discern where a person is coming from. When truth and love combine, there just isn't room for greed or jealousy in the carnal sense. While true that God is a jealous God, we are called to be zealous for the truth.

I think Johnny is a bit mixed up about the difference between jealous and zealous, and that if he can't speak the truth from love, that is not an excuse to preach half truths in a zealous jealous:-) As one ruler told Paul,'Has your much learning made you mad?!'

Thankfully, our Lord gave the example to brand hypocrits as hypocrits, but those of misunderstanding He just taught the truth in love.
