.. say what you mean and mean what you say ..
RULES

.. fighting and stating your position is entirely acceptable but you cannot tell someone they are wrong because they may, in fact, be correct ..

.. you cannot tell people who they are because you might be wrong ..

.. if you want to respond, state your position. You can choose not to respond to any post. You're in charge, not the other way around ..

.. last, no apologies for what you believe in .. "

Again where did i violate this?

And what is wrong with apologizing? I am not happy that stating my position may hurt someone and ma sorry for that. But unfortunately that may be a consequence of protecting my integrity. I have no problem with apologize for a consequence even if the consequence is necessary

Let's say you have to fire someone for doing a poor job or missing work. But you like the person and you know other factors have contributed to why they have not been able to work up to potential but you still have to let them go. Just because the firing is justified means you can't feel bad about the result such as someone being out of a job?

Empathy is always a good thing HL, even with someone you may be in conflict with

(T) Peace

I think along with that we ALL need not be so thin skinned at times. That is something that I have worked on...trying to remember that what is said is by anonymous strangers that don't know the whole of us.
I emphasized "all" because I have seen most everyone over react to statements made. I realize that we are ALL passionate about some areas but really...does it truly matter what anyone thinks?
While I am at it...I have read the posts exchanged between you and Deb...almost posted about is...decided it wasn't my battle and to stay out of it. I will continue to keep myself removed from it but just had some thoughts in general.
I don't think there are many...if any...that hasn't posted about someone in a tmail. I don't make a practice of it but readily admit that I have. I no longer do when I realized that I didn't know who I could trust since there was so much talk about info being passed along.
I think there are times that we all need to be able to vent...often times if done in private it prevents the ugliness being posted and the back and forth battle ensuing. Eventually what I have said in private usually gets said directly here by me.
I think I will stop at this...I always have more but really...do I always need to post it? Nah...probably not...LOL
.. excellent, almost ..

BLL, you knew what SALVATION I was talking about, don't act like you don't.
Forgive me for being so ignorant, but I have an issue with taking all that a person posts as literal. If you say "my salvation," I automatically assume you're inquiring about my salvation. My mistake.
simplyput wrote:
EXPLAIN what you meant by what you said "MY salvation'
Do you have your own salvation.
When I refer to salvation as "mine," I'm referring to how I've held fast to the salvation that's been given me, and I made it mine. I, now, possess the salvation that's given me. You'll find the same type of references of ownership in the Psalms, by David (Psa 62:1, for one example), and the other prophets. We also read of similar possessive-references made by Paul, too, as he calls the gospel "my gospel (Rom 16:25 for one example)."
simplyput wrote:
I definitly was talking about GOD"S Salvation through JESUS CHRIST.
Then you actually repeated here what I asked you. NO! you did not answer accordingly to . You still say that your confidence will dwindle if you willingly disregaurd what is expected of you.
And I mean that. Salvation, itself, is firmly rooted. And as I said, whether anyone of us exists, or not, will have no bearing on salvation, itself. The fulfillment of salvation depends on no one, even a little bit. But, now, whether or not I'm worthy enough to receive His ultimate salvation will rest solely upon my faith. And my faith must be proven by righteousness. And my righteousness must not come from my own perceptions of righteousness and unrighteousness, but by the most High's, as His ways are higher than ours. There are expectations and stipulations that we must conform to. And if we don't.....

It's troublesome that you ignored that whole post, again. Troublesome, but quite revealing, as well. You should know that a refusal to answer is just as well an answer, too. Except, when you refuse to answer certainties, you're only leaving it open, for us, as to why you chose to utterly refuse to address what was set before you.

Hey Knowledge...
If you read between the lines shrinky dink has a lot of health and beauty tips. Did you know that if you fart and burp at the same time that you can avoid getting pimples on your wrinkles...or was it wrinkles on your pimples...hmmmm. Guess I need to go back and read that chapter one more time. He's written a book you know and is soon coming out with his own health and beauty tips book. I am going to ask him for a signed copy of one...for when I go to Mars with him...that is if I behave.
Thank you LOL I understand.

For the record btw I believe I was wrong about thos last situation being connected to FB. I have heard from Grace and heard from Deb and they both said it did not originate there. I assumed it had and was probably wrong. But I have been told on quite a few occasions that the private communications on FB are not better than Topix and in some cases worse. And i guess because of that I kind of resent the implication that gets made a lot like FB is where the better Christians go. Everybody has issues. Many people gossip. And yes is would seem that people who use the FB public forum have a peaceful thing going on there and I am sure it is easier without everybody having access to the discussion. But I have seen even other threads on Topix that are just slightly out of the public path that people openly gossip about others. I simply do not believe several people have lied to me and that nobody uses private options on Facebook in which to talk about people here. If whoever is reading this, if you are not one of them then take nothing personal from my post as it is not directed at you

So fighting for the sake of fighting? ok

Explaining my position that it is slander because it falls under the definition of slander even though you said we are allowed to state our position is not ok?

I am going to stop us right here. I am going to go forward the next ten days and do my best to avoid insults, nasty words, name-calling, staying in exchanges well past the due-date, etc. I will explain myself if I feel necessary and ask questions if I want an answer to them. But I am going to do that in a manner I believe Jesus would be ok with. I am going to monitor myself and answer to Jesus on my behavior. I feel like laready you are making up the rules as we go along and I never wanted this to be about competition or trying to say "see" when you think someone violated a rule. I wanted it to be about trying to be better people. So I am going to bow out of the "competition" part of this

Do not believe evey spirit but test the spirits to see whether they are from God,because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
This is how you can recognize the spirit of God:Every spirit that acknowledge that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God.This is the spirit of the antichrist which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
You are from God and have overcome them because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world and the world listens to them.We are from God and whoever knows God listen to us but whoever is not from God does not listen to us.This is how we recognize the spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.
you worship the evil one

If one finds himself needing to defend, justify, or protect what is believed, then one needs to inspect the reason for that act, and/or the belief.
That is very similar to what I told my son a several years ago. He always seemed angry about what he believed. One day during one of our "discussions" I told him...

When you become secure and are at peace in your own beliefs then there is no reason to feel as if you have to defend them.

It took him a couple of more years to finally understand what I was saying.

They just happen to be the words that HL used...for whatever reason. Can't speak for Steve but I just went with HL's words since it was her challenge.
If it had been mine...I probably would only have used the word "defend". Not sure what I would have used in the place of "justify" and "protect".
To me...at least IMO...though the words might be similar in meaning...I think that possibly to each of us the might represent something different...at least here in the Topix world.
These would my meanings of the words...
Defend...Standing up for my beliefs and my opinions
Justify...Giving reason for my actions and behavior
Protect...This one I think has multiple meanings for me. Mainly however I look at this one as "protecting" my rights to express my beliefs and opinions.
Notice the difference between my version of protect and defend. One is for the actual belief/opinion the other is to protect the right to express them.
What HL's definitions are...I don't know...but this is how I saw them.

"feel that we have said ( a LIE) that we can do ANYTHING we want and still be saved!"
If nothing you do can cause you to lose your salvation how is that not the same as being able to do anything you want and still be saved?
Can you clarify then? If you don't believe you can do anything you want and still be saved, what are some of the things you can't do?
.. ahhh, finally ..

I know that I have been off for awhile, but I have a question for you if you don't mind...What is Dr. Shrink? I read some of his posts and he sounds like a muslim, now I went back and he has some writings sounding like a confused Christian. I know we all have our different outlooks on some things, but just trying to figure this person out. He has not given me a straight answer of his belief systems....or am I missing something? Thanks.
Hello Knowledge, pleasure,

To your question, other than a troll with an ever growing 'portfolio' of greybox handles, claims to have been a Jehovah's Witness- but no longer.

You take care...

I find it discerning when two people discuss someone else in their exchanges...it is like talking behind their back...knowing that the person will read it. I don't know why that rubs me like it does. I think it is why I try (don't always succeed) to say what I have to say directly to that person.
The next thing that I abhor...is making statements about someone when there is no evidence to prove it. We all might draw conclusions but we don't have any evidence. I think it is done just to discredit regardless of whether it is factual. Ex: Someone accused "G" of assaulting his daughter...no factual information...just garbage that was made up. Darn...I hit the ceiling over that one. I still have no respect for the person that said it.
The other thing that comes to mind...dragging up people's pasts and what they might have said or done years prior. You know how I feel about that...things in the past...should stay in the past. If one has recognized their errors and corrected them...who are we to continue to make them pay that price. This includes dragging posts up from the past and using them as a weapon...just to try and control the other person.
What it comes down to it...if the only way that we can build ourselves up is to tear others down...doesn't say a whole lot about us...or maybe it does.
It is always easier to see these actions in others than it is in ourselves. There are times that I cut way back on my posting at Topix...it is usually when I see something in myself that I abhor in others. It isn't pretty!
