I need to issue an apology to the members and visitors of BB. Over the last several months, I have noticed a shift in the tone on this site. There seems to be a growing sense of personal animosity among the brethren toward each other. More bickering, more personal insults, more petty criticism. To the extent that I have added to this I accept my responsibility and offer my apology to you. I believe that my participation over the last few months has done more harm to the cause of Christ and caused more discouragement to the brethren than it has helped. With this in mind, I have asked for my account to be deleted or to be banned from further participation. I do not want the temptation to repeat past sins. Arbo.
