    1Co_14:26 How is it then, brethren? when ye come together, every one of you hath a psalm, hath a doctrine, hath a tongue, hath a revelation, hath an interpretation. Let all things be done unto edifying.

    Eph 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

    These verses apply to your posts towards people you disagree with.

    I wonder how many posts on this site grieve the Spirit of God.

    Some of you may need to stop posting all together on here because you don't have this down yet.

    Oh, please. Edification does not mean agreement.

    Me and Jordan do not agree on several issues, yet he is able to talk to me in kindness. This is something that you and other posters here cannot do.

    I think that you mistake kindness for politeness. Yes there are a few who tend to be impolite at times, but unkind? I can think of no recent example.

    I will kindly say, though, that unjustly calling people liars is both unkind and impolite.

    Just as you have decided to offer your unsolicited opinions to other churches, many on this site have tried to help you...except that you have asked for advice. Those who reaffirm decisions that you have already made speak in kindness, while those who point out flaws are numbered in your Bad Book. You may not believe it, but most who respond to your threads are trying to help you. Kick your friends enough times, and they will leave you to your own.

    I think reproof and correction are edifying. To see one who will not yield to the texts of Scripture mocked and jeered is edifying to those who will.

    You really need to work on your pronouns.

    A critical distinction. Thank you for voicing it.

    Rabbits? That reminds me of something. Mr. Aaron, it's almost deer season in the Nawth. We missed the annual "Do you enjoy killing Bambi" last year. Any chance you'll reprise it.

    I've been attending SSL (Sarcasm as a Second Language) classes and can't wait to try it out on a Bambi thread.

    I'm thinking of taking a Narcissism for Beginners class next. No pesky pronouns. None of dees guyz, does goyz and dem guyz congemacation. No whose, hows or whoms to deal with either. Me, mine, I. That's all the pronouns you need. Anyone beside yourself is referenced by a dismissive nod and a hearty "Pfui!"
