Edit

the following should have been part of Ians post:

"I don't (agree with Skombolis). He names only two categories of posters: those looking to debate the other team with what he calls an open mind, and trolls, by which I presume he means people trying to disrupt discussion. I'm neither. I have long ago given up trying to influence believers,"

I placed the quotes wrong

How did he get the info to look him up on facebook? And then to follow that up with searching out others on topix?
Unless I missed something he wasnt invited. He was snooping somehow found out a name and now follows them on facebook.
I dont know much about facebook either but you have to have a name.
Deb gave me her facebook info, but since i had no intentions of being on there i didnt go looking up info on her and everyone else here. I would imagine I could've, I'm sure shes friends with everyone here and i could've spied on and gotten info, but I didn't. to me it wouldn't have been right.........Unless I had actual intentions of interacting with them on facebook.
On topix its different there are no real names involved unless you put it out there. IANS says he's in Mexico, who knows if he is or isnt. Who gives a chit if he is or isnt. its an anonymous board, or its supposedly suppose to be..........Its why I dont give out much personal info anymore. Because of people that will use it against you as has been demonstrated here time and again.........
Very true Lar.....

I see that struck a nerve with the sycophants

The only reason the facade of a secular humanist movement on the internet is even played up is because without it, there would be no way to pretend what people are doing is not basic trolling

It is why they have to pretend there is a tidal wave rising against Christianity because 4-5 people criticize it together online. People and those like them probably make up less than 1% of the population

The real reason the group trolls come here is simple. They believe they are going to 'show up' Christians. They come here to engage in pointless arguments so during the course of them their fellow trolls can praise them for their responses. They thrive on the validation from feeling like they have out-smarted someone or put someone in their place. And people that do things like this, that seek out people who believe differently just so they can fight with them, are miserable.

It didn't take long to chip away at the armor. Most these trolls don't work, aren't good at what they do, aren't nearly as smart as they thought they were, and have shown their own morals and ethics to be sorely lacking. By traveling in a group and supporting each other no matter what they have managed to go a long time believing their own hype.

I don't plan on wasting much more time exposing this. What they call "character assassination" was simply shining a light on what was obvious to an outside observer.

The things that are important are things like Andrew dying and our daily spiritual walk and fellowship and friendship. I just told someone being back on Topix for 5 minutes already made me feel less spiritual. Reading the same trolling crap that has become a regular fixture in here is a big part of it. I have been the most guilty in feeding the trolls. I did so for a purpose that is no longer required. And some of it was just ego.

Regardless, from now on if the posts falls into the category of trolling I am scrolling

He already has. Red thinks Catholics are worshiping Satan. Well documented on this very thread.

Ask him his beliefs about the Trinity. He doesn't believe Jesus is God. I agree with him on that, as do most Bishops in the Church of England.

Thanks Epi

And I'm going to. I should not have even made the reply to the post that included me that was to Senacus. I just have to make a concentrated effort to break a bad habit. There was nothing to be gained from replying.

The time away from here helped

Moving forward and starting over

I souls read back and find the post. You have been proven to be a liar too much for me to even bother.
I don't need to prove anything to you. I already proved it to everyone else.

People like you and Red are the reason so many people hate Christians. You should be damned to Hell for that alone. You betray Jesus. How many times do you Judases need to crucify him ?

Sadly, Epi, many Christians (and NON) can't tell the difference.

Thanks for knowing the difference. <hugs>

Hey Malone!

I have some down-time from work this month and just have been enjoying seeing people and doing some things I don't get to do as often as I would like. It has been really nice and I am not even at the halfway point!

Hope everything has been going good for you lately.

Nice to see ya

“I am wired by nature to love the same toys that the world loves. I start to fit in. I start to love what others love. I start to call earth "home." Before you know it, I am calling luxuries "needs" and using my money just the way unbelievers do. I begin to forget the war. I don't think much about people perishing. Missions and unreached people drop out of my mind. I stop dreaming about the triumphs of grace. I sink into a secular mind-set that looks first to what man can do, not what God can do. It is a terrible sickness. And I thank God for those who have forced me again and again toward a wartime mind-set.”
