Yes. I understand. I have been re-evaluating my time spent on the threads....
Most of the arguments on here are from repetition and generalizations, and are fallacious as arguments. Undoubtedly, it is a result of attacking others and has become so ingrained in this society that reconciliation and constructive criticism is considered evil. Such as it is....
If I do stay on the thread, it would be for my edification, that I might learn not to be as judgemental as I see those on this thread are....
At this time I really see very very little in the way of exhorting one to a closer walk with Jesus on this thread. And that is to bad.
What you and Clay see as "attacks" are nothing more than addressing the title of this board.
Most of these so-called "attacks" are backed by credible links. If you could refute with same, then you and others might not view yourselves as victims.
When you post under the title "only true church" -- then expect to be challenged on that statement.
Playing the victim says that your "only one true" thing is absurd.
EXAMPLE -- It's impossible to argue that Jesus would want His "only true church" to use diplomatic immunity to avoid accountability.
That's just plain absurd -- and this is just just one example.
You see it as an attack, because you have no way to refute.
More? How does this "only true church" thing manifest itself in the quality of societies? Look at the Americas. Why do Catholic-majority societies tend to be more backward and crime-ridden?
How many absurdities do you want?
