This makes much sense to me. I believe a good tie-in with what your saying is in, Gal. 5:22-23, talking about the believers fruits of the Spirit of God he produces this is the sign of a true believer as you would say the reader can take the words in any tone and think bad about them if they like. I always look for the fruit does he or she show love, peace, joy, goodness, kindness, meekness, longsuffering, faith, gentleness and so on. The very sad thing is, I do not see much of this in people's e-mail but I do hear a lot of slander, bickering, gossip, hate, malice, unkind words towards another and so on this is not the case with all thank the Lord for this. It seems today many do not want to look at things objective at an issue and see how it may apply to the word of God which should be the sole authority that determins truth. Thank you for your input. I would not be surprised if some would even show contempt in what I have just said. Again, thank you. Gary.
LOL, I know Annie, but I would rather not edit what someone say's. No way do I believe we should beat someone over the head with our bibles..haha, That even sounded funny to me. I have had a few run ins with the "extreme religionist" Christians on here over this very thing. I love to quote scripture if I have the opportunity but I hate when people belittle someone with Gods Word or condemn them to hell if they break a commandment and especially dislike seeing a Christian spew hate in the name of God. We are all human and get angry at times, I am especially guilty for that but a Christian is suppose to be quick to listen and slow to speak. The one thing that I don't like about chatrooms is the fact that the listener cannot hear the compassion coming from the writer. The reader can take the words in any tone that they desire. Sometimes unintentionally, but they miss the whole point in general..Does that make sense? <<<<proves my point, i guess. LOL
